Itcosmetics CC+ cream with SPF 50+

So I usually don’t bother much with the samples that I get at Sephora, not for any reason other than I usually just forget about them! I am sure glad I didn’t forget about this one…the ItCosmetics CC+ cream with SPF 50+

I saw that youtube sensation, Christen Dominque was at the ItCosmetics booth at the Gen Beauty event in New York a couple weeks ago, raving about this product…so when I stumbled across it in my makeup bag I knew I had to try it.

Let’s start with what this product does. It’s a foundation, brightener, anti aging serum, primer, dark spot/color corrector, day cream, AND spf all in one product.

I enjoyed this product! I wore it the other day, morning through evening, and was pleased with how it wore over the course of the day. I was out in the sun for a little over an hour while babysitting, so I appreciated the spf coverage it gave me. It also impressed me that while I was outside, it didn’t melt off or get overly shiny. This is definitely more full coverage which is another thing I like about this. I typically don’t tend to opt for BB or CC creams because I find them to lack the coverage factor I need, but this definitely provided that 🙂 On the website it says that this product is a pore minimizing primer. I don’t know that I completely agree with that, as I found that my pores looked as large as they usually do, but I do love that the primer is inside of the product so I’m able to skip that step. At the end of the day, I still liked the way that my skin looked, which is the true test!

This is a product I definitely think is worth looking into purchasing if you like to get ready quickly and want to be able to have the luxury of getting all these benefits by using one product!

Hope you all enjoyed this review 🙂

Love always, Shana

Get glammed with me and Anna!

Hi glammers!

I wanted to share a little bit about the glam sesh I had with my December bride-to-be, Anna! I had the priviledge of doing her makeup for her bridal shower last weekend, and I have attached a link to my youtube channel where I show you how I did it! Let me walk you through some of the steps and why I did what I did…

I usually start with the eyes when I am doing a more smokey eye because there is often shadow fall out. It’s much easier to clean up the excess shadow, then apply foundation… rather than fixing foundation already there (that can get messy and ruin the makeup). Because Anna had a generous amount of lid space, I took the shadow up high into the crease, so when her eyes are open you can see the shadow creating a nice halo around her eyes. I used a liquid liner to create a thick line with a tiny wing, then added mascara. We skipped false lashes for this particular event, as Anna has naturally long lashes.

Once her eyes were completey finished, I moved on to her face. I applied a full coverage foundation to her face (Fit Me! Matte and Poreless foundation by Maybelline) with a damp beauty blender sponge to ensure the finish was flawless. I concealed under her eyes with the dream lumi touch highlighting concealer (also Maybelline). Once the face makeup was on, I set everything with powder. Next, I went in with powder bronzer to softly contour Anna’s face. Lastly, I added highlighter to accentuate her cheekbones, upper lip and tip of her nose which adds lift. She has very beautiful and prominent features, so I simply enhanced what she has!

We finished up with the lips. Initially, Anna had hoped for a pinkish/red lip. Once it was on, she decided to go for something more nude, which I agreed would look good since her eyes had more color.

I hope you enjoyed hearing a few of my tips, and really hope you like the video!

Love always, Shana xoxo
