Get #InstaGlam For a Night Out

I have been looking forward to doing this post for awhile now.  Mostly because in order to do this post, I would get to have a night out with the hubby!

Now very rarely do I wear a full glam look, so I wanted to get Katy Perry's #InstaGlam look using COVERGIRL products for this special occasion.  I love these products  mostly because they provide a flawless look in very little time.  They also, in my opinion, have the same quality and lasting power of much more expensive luxury and boutique products.  AND - they don't make me break out.  So yes, COVERGIRL has become my go-to for face makeup.

Now lets get to it!  Here is my before picture.  A clean face with zero make up and a light moisturizer.  Are you loving my messy mom bun?  That is typically how I keep my long hair out of the way day to day. 

But for a night out, I get to let my hair down (literally) and have a little fun with my makeup. Normally I only use my tried-and-true makeup for a special night out.  But since I have so much confidence in COVERGIRL at this point, I used the Ready. Set. Gorgeous Concealer, Liquid Foundation, and Power for the first time.

I was not disappointed!  The coverage is spectacular!  I love that its oil free and I am especially happy that the foundation is an "all in one."  This means no need for that layer of primer before putting on your makeup.  Not only did this save me some time, but it also made me feel better about not putting layer upon layer of product on my face.  And yes, it did last all night.  Even through the Florida heat and humidity.   

I applied the liquid foundation with a makeup sponge.  Then applied the concealer with the wand and blended with my finger (because I'm oh-so-professional) and set it all with the Ready. Set. Gorgeous Powder.   It literally took MAYBE 3 minutes. Awesome!
