Valentine's Series: Get the Look with COVERGIRL

It's February!  You know what that means - Valentine's Day!  I know there are many who are not into Heart Day but...  You don't have to be in a romantic relationship to celebrate love!  You can celebrate the love you have for family, your kids, nieces, nephews, and friends.  And, besides, celebrating is so much more fun than... well... not celebrating. I'm all for holiday themed food and decor. And it doesn't have to be some big, pressure packed, fancy shindig.  Just have fun, that's all!

And we all know... whenever there's an occasion to celebrate, there's a chance to try a new look! Luckily for all of us, COVERGIRL has several products perfect for occasion.  This look is also perfect for the upcoming Spring months.  All too often a "Valentine's" look entails a heavy makeup look with smokey eyes and a seductive red lip.  But for those who like a lighter look, or are simply celebrating during the day or more casually, this feminine, bright makeup may be more your style.

First I used my favorite foundation, COVERGIRL's Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation.  Seriously, the stuff is magic...at an affordable price.  Next I used concealer and then COVERGIRL's TruBLEND Blush in Medium Rose.  Its a beautiful rosy tint and highly pigmented.  Its the best drugstore blush I've tried. Seriously.  Gorgeous, lots of color, and easy to blend.

For my lips I wanted a moisturizing balm instead of a heavy lipstick or stain.  COVERGIRL's new Colorlicious Oh Sugar! Vitamin Infused Lip Balm was exactly what I was looking for.  Genuinely moisturizing with noticeable color. (I'm wearing the color "Jelly")  Its definitely a new favorite/ every day go-to product for me.

Lastly, the eyes.  I LOVE the new TruNaked Eyeshadow Palettes (who doesn't love eyeshadow palettes?!)  Now I normally gravitate towards the nudes (they're just so easy!) but I decided to switch it up with the Roses palette since it is a Valentine's look. I used the third and forth shade from the left on my lids.  I used a liner brush  and the last shade (far right) to create a thin line on my top lid, at the lash line.

And lastly, I finished off with mascara.  The Plumpify blastPro by LashBlast is my new daily mascara.  First of all, take a look at that brush!  It's insane!  It grabs every single lash and coats it without out clumpy.  I saw a noticeable difference after just one coat.  I am only wearing 2 or 3 coats on each eye here. Length and volume done quickly and easily!  That's what we like, right ladies?

And there you have it!  A light, rosy, fresh faced look thanks to COVERGIRL!
