IT Cosmetics MUST HAVES
The CC+ Cream is my VERY favorite IT Cosmetics product. I've been using it for years! It's won tons of awards (including Allure magazine Reader's Choice Award) and is a cult favorite of makeup artists and consumers alike. From 2016-2019, no other CC cream in America has been sold in the same volume. Plus it was developed by plastic surgeons and dermatologists, so it's literally makeup and skincare all in one! If you're in a hurry, you don't need to stress about SPF, a primer, or moisturizer because this ALREADY HAS IT ALL!
Last year, when I was on a national TV show, the professional makeup artist had literally every kind of foundation and brand imaginable at her fingertips, and chose to use THIS IT Cosmetics CC Cream over every other option. It's good enough for HD TV, so it's good enough for me! Depending on the brush used, it can be full coverage or light coverage so it is SOO versatile! If you're trying to figure out your shade, they even have a handy chart AND a live consultation to help you find your best foundation match.
Heavenly Luxe Complexion Brush #7
Confession: the first time I used this CC+ cream, I actually didn't love it! Now I KNOW it was because I wasn't using their brush to apply. The brush and foundation are as classic a combo as Woody & Buzz: you just would never separate them in good conscience!
One time I was at a business meeting in San Fran and I was drooling over a girl's makeup and was shocked to hear that she was wearing the IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream! She told me the trick is to use their brush and I've never turned back. I love that the Heavenly Luxe Complexion Brush is dual sided and I can use both sides for a totally blended look, every time.
Bye Bye Foundation
Bye Bye Foundation is another product that I always have in my makeup drawer and it's easily in my top 5 fave foundations of all time. The biggest difference between this and the CC+ Cream is the coverage. Bye Bye Foundation is definitely fuller coverage; in fact, it is considered a “full coverage moisturizer!”
At first, I wasn't too sure what this meant, but after using it I totally agree. It feels like all you have on is skincare BUT all your imperfections are covered too! It's like magic and we're not asking questions because we are obsessed.
Brow Power Universal Brow Pencil
This Brow Pencil from IT Cosmetics has basically taken over in my makeup kit as my GO-TO brow product. Those of you who know me know this is a BIG deal, because I've used a different brow product for yeeeears.
This pencil doesn't break, lasts forever, stays put on my brows, is ultra-creamy, easy to apply, and is the most universal color (I use Taupe as a blonde and a brunette!). I could seriously go on and on…
NICE TO HAVES
Brow Power Filler Gel
Watching the video to learn how to use Brow Power Filler Gel helped me a ton to understand how to get the most out of this product! It definitely gave me fuller, fluffier brows but it took me a couple times to get it right. I would recommend wiping down the applicator as you pull it out of the tube, and having a spare mascara spoolie around to help distribute the gel! If you're someone who is trying to grow out your brows or achieve a different shape, this product really fills them in and gives the illusion of fuller brows.
Bye Bye Under Eye Anti Aging Concealer
I've been talking about this full coverage IT Cosmetics concealer for years. It has all the amazing benefits of the foundation but in concealer form! It doesn't crease, has serious longevity, and is thick enough to cover even the biggest skin sins.
Bye Bye Pores Pressed Setting Powder
This powder is small and easy to travel with and does.its.job (how many powders can truly say that?!) It sets my makeup beautifully with the Heavenly Luxe Jumbo Powder Brush (not a must-have like the foundation brush but SUPER good quality!!)
Your Most Beautiful You Anti Aging Palette
This triple palette of bronzer, blush and highlighter is amazing. I am such a huge fan of palettes like this that take the guesswork out of makeup AND travel so easily! The shades are universally flattering and perfect for daily use.
I applied with the French Boutique Blush Brush, and I seriously loved the angle on it! The Dual Airbrush concealer brush has amazing reviews and utilizes both ends for applying and buffing out foundation. It's not TOTALLY necessary because you can easily use the smaller end of the dual brush for concealer, but if you're committed to having PERFECT concealer application, this is the brush for you. These IT Cosmetics brushes make application super easy, and again, they are so high quality and will last you forever if you take care of them.
Vitality Lipstick & Gloss
I'm super picky with my lipgloss. I don't like sticky or drying or anything that doesn't make my lips look and feel like a 10/10. This stuff from IT Cosmetics is so soft and moisturizing and the color is the perfect pop of pink on top of the lipstick!
Bye Bye Makeup Cleansing Balm
The Bye Bye Makeup Cleansing Balm from IT Cosmetics is a lot less expensive than the other balm I've been using and the ingredients are TOPS! Can you say collagen, peptides and ceramides galore?! It also has a proprietary skin-softening serum that provides the skin with a barrier of moisture that wards off free radical damage. YES PLEASE!
Your Skin But Better Setting Spray+
I looooove that this IT Cosmetics Setting Spray has hyaluronic acid in it to increase moisture in my skin as it sets my makeup. Did you know that hyaluronic acid holds 1,000 times its weight in water? That means it acts as a moisture magnet so your skin doesn't dry out! It also helps my makeup stay on better under my mask that I'm always wearing these days.
