Question of the Week: If beauty products were like Thanksgiving dinner, what’s your gravy? (The product you use with/over EVERYTHING.)
First of all, Happy Thanksgiving Week! I hope it means a short work week, amazing and calorie-free desserts and the sense to keep your mouth shut in front of your mother in law. (Maybe I’m talking about me here…) While I’m most grateful for the best husband, a warm and cozy home and truly wonderful friends, I’d be remiss not to mention the beauty product I’m currently very grateful for. It’s the one product I wear every day, no matter what. It goes with everything, which makes it the big dinner equivalent of gravy. My favorite comes in the form of the It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Airbrush Perfecting Powder SPF50+. I don’t know why more people aren’t raving about this. I have never found a pressed powder that delivers such a perfected looking finish. It’s almost too perfect. You can wear it lightly on top of your makeup or by itself for a natural, radiant no-makeup-glow. A little goes a long way, so start with a stippling or very fluffy brush so you don’t overdo it. I can not be without it. If you grab it right meow from ItCosmetics.com, you can save 25% with code ITFRIEND17.
If you are looking for a sweet deal on skincare that delivers results, use code FALL50 at Your Best Face Skincare. If you are like me and shave your face, you’ve got to try the Shave Cream for the smoothest skin ever.
