Oh me oh my…so many of you have asked when wedding content is coming!
It’s coming but there are SO many pictures/video/etc to go through so bear with me…I promise to take you on the whole journey. In the meantime be sure to check out The Welcome Party.
Shifting gears here.
Wanted to introduce you to a product I talk about ALL THE TIME on Snapchat.
Presenting: MAGICAL CC CREAM.
( Not sponsored, just VERY MUCH INTO THIS RIGHT NOW ).
OK so here’s the thing: this CC Cream has changed my skin/makeup game.
Since you guys really responded to the post about my horrendous, brown sun mustache, I figured SHIT…I NEED TO SHARE what’s helped cover the stache too.
That’s where the magical CC Cream comes in.
…I mean really, the best, best, BEST CC Cream on the planet.
( Stop reading right now if you’re not into glowy, dewy, flawless skin ).
Ok so I originally found this so randomly on YouTube. It wasn’t anyone famous or huge on YouTube. Just kind of off the beaten path YouTube foundation tutorial.
For some reason, I was intrigued. I’d link the video, but it was so damn random that I don’t even know where to begin to search for it.
Anyway, immediately I bought a bottle in ‘light.’
Ok so here’s the deal, try it make sure you’re priming your face with a very good primer before application!! A primer sets the canvas & makes all the difference in the world. Right now I like Hourglass primer or a good caffeinated sunscreen ( << been using this everyday, every second lately because the caffeine tightens my skin BIG TIME- love a quick facelift, LOL ).
Every time I apply this CC Cream I blot it with a beautyblender, my ride or die beauty companion. Make sure when you’re using a beautyblender you BLOT, not rub. TRUST ME on this! It looks more natural.
ALSO, I just recently discovered to wet my beautyblender before applying foundation. SUCH a game changer. Try it & be prepared to JUST DIE.
The wet beautyblender & CC Cream together make for this dewy, glowy, Snapchat-filter finish that you will become addicted too. To be real, I’d rather not do my makeup without this CC Cream honestly. It’s that good.
You should know I apply my caffeinated sunscreen first with beautyblender, then eye brightener concealer ( if you get this get #2 ), then CC cream, & then a little powder when I’m going out!
So all products used for skin currently:
+ Caffeniated sunscreen ( or sometimes Hourglass primer )
+ Powder of choice ( my preference )
+ Use beautyblender to apply ALL ( BLOT though! )
And then? Well, your skin will GLOW. Like pregnancy, Megan Fox kind of glow.
Hands down the BEST CC Cream I’ve ever tried. I actually don’t know how I ever lived without it. It’s REALLY INSANE for people with hyperpigmentation ( me! )…AND DID I MENTION there’s 50 SPF in this!!! YES I KNOW. Sounds like it was made for me?
Also, I’ve recommended this to THREE professional makeup artists who have come back to me with RAVE reviews !!
NOTE: make sure you get the ‘illumination’ CC Cream, not the regular. It’s way better.
I’m feeling a beauty tutorial?…maybe in the New Year though because this year has been fucking nuts & I very much need to get my ass into gear on these wedding posts.
Alright, alright- I’m off to read. Reading SUCH a good book right now: What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship, And Love by Carol Radziwill ( she was best friends with John F. Kennedy Jr. & his wife, Carolyn Bessette, wife of JFK Jr.’s cousin, Anthony Radziwill, & star of RHONY ). Very deep, raw as can be, beautifully written…& tragic, all in one. Highly recommend. I started a few days ago & I’m already on page 542…so that should tell you something?
Good night guys! Hope you’re all not too crazed with the holidays, work, etc.
Talk soon, lauryn x
