I have been getting a lot of DMs lately about IT Cosmetics. I have mentioned the brand multiple times on my Instagram and y’all know they are one of my favorite makeup brands. So, today I thought I would share with you my quick and easy “natural” and glowy makeup routine!
This is my daily routine and it takes me no time at all! I love using all the IT Cosmetics products together because, as with any brand, they are all formulated to work best together. When I originally posted (a few months ago) about the IT CC Cream I had a lot of you babes DM me saying you got samples from Sephora and that it was a little too dewy and glowy. I found that when you use the IT primer with the CC Cream it makes it a more satin, natural finish. I used to use it with the Hourglass Veil primer and it didn’t seem to sit right throughout the day. PRIMER MATTERS PEOPLE! Also, IT Cosmetics also launched a Matte CC Cream, which I love using on those hotter days because it is less dewy, which helps when the sweat starts to come through!
So, let’s start!
- Confidence in a Cream
This super hydrating, non-oily cream is my favorite to use after my morning skin care because it has Hyaluronic Acid. Products with Hyaluronic Acid are perfect for making your skin look healthier because the Hyaluronic Acid binds to water to help retain moisture in your skin, which is great for anti-aging.
- Your Skin But Better Primer +
This primer is OIL-FREE! The number one thing I look for in primer is oil-free because my T zone get oily enough on its own, it doesn’t need extra help lol. This primer claims on the bottle to be a makeup-gripping base, and it truly is. It is very light weight but works like gold. Side note, I also like to use this on non-makeup days because it really blurs the skin and gives a nice finish.
- Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream w/ SPF 50+ (shade Medium)
YES SPF! Protect that skin babe. My favorite method to apply this is with my fingers, then I go in with my beauty blender to even it out and get rid of any excess product. This is my go to. I have tried dozens of foundations and CC creams and nothing has come close to my love for this product. I am going on 3 years with this baby!
- Bye Bye Under Eye Illuminating Anti-Aging Concealer (Medium)
Full Coverage concealor. You only need the TINIEST amount to cover those bags and acne spots. Trust me, the first time you use this, you will use too much. One of these bottles lasts forever. This is a necessity for me, especially with how bad my bags have been during this semester.
- You Sculpted Palette
I love versatile pallettes, I use the Matte Highlght to set my under eyes, mix the Light Contour and Soft Contour to sculpt the cheeks, jaw and nose, and use the Soft Contour as a crease color for my eyes and pop the Radiance Highlight in the middle of my lid. For highlight I use the Radiance Highlight on my highpoints.
- Bye Bye Pore Blush (Naturally Pretty)
Perfect shade. It is so gorgeous and goes on like a dream. The color is very similar (on my skin) to the Nars Orgasm blush but not as sparkly, which I like because I am not a huge fan of shiny blushes. I also notices a big difference in the pores when I used this, which was a pleasant surprise because my pores are stubborn to cover up!
- Vitality Lip Butter Gloss (Naturally Pretty)
You guys know how set I am on my Bobbi Brown lip gloss… but it has now been dethroned. When I put this lip gloss on I loved the color but I didn’t get my hopes up because usually after my morning coffee my lip gloss is gone, but this lasted through my coffee, and stayed pretty much all day. I also liked that it isn’t tacky (who else hates their hair getting stuck to their lip gloss?!)
- CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder SPF 50+ (Medium)
This product isn’t part of my morning makeup routine, but this baby is forever and always in my purse, it is perfect for touch ups!
That’s it, that’s all! Super easy and quick! If you are on the fence about getting any of these products, I highly suggest going to Sephora and getting a sample to try, because you will fall in love!
