As a young girl, I have to say makeup was definitely my first love. I would dig into our bathroom drawers where my Mom would keep her favorite beauty products and I would just experiment and play around. I have the worst memory ever and many of my family & friends will tell you that, but for some odd reason I remember the exact moment when I walked into the drug store and picked up my first bronzer. I was hooked after that moment and my love for makeup continued to blossom as I learned how to apply it correctly.
My 20’s were when I met my first real love, my hubby, so naturally cosmetics became my 2nd love. So how fitting is it that my friends at 2nd Love Cosmetics introduced me to this fabulous and beautiful line of makeup?
I was so excited to try out my goodies and I’m even more excited to give you my thoughts & tell you how I got this glow:
First, I applied Olay Complete Moisturizer, which gave me a clean and hydrated base to begin with, then I followed with 2nd Love Concealer Foundation in 01-Light under my eyes, down the bridge of my nose, my smile lines, and chin. I absolutely love how creamy and lightweight this concealer is and it really brightens up my under eyes! For extra coverage, I applied Makeup Forever HD Invisible Cover Foundation in 120-Soft Sand with a beauty blender. To add an extra golden glow, I mixed my foundation with a gold shimmer pigment in Melon from MAC.
To define my cheekbones, I picked up some color from the Anastasia Contour Kit and applied the bottom right dark shade to the hollows of my cheeks bringing it up to my temples, forehead and down to my chin. I followed up with the middle light powder on the top row to set in my 2nd Love Concealer.
Now my favorite part! Cheeks! I love love love a rosy cheek and 2nd Love Cosmetics has an amazing Quick Stick Cream Blush in Toffee that I applied to the apples of my cheeks and gently blended in with my fingers. To bring out the cheek even more, I applied 2nd Love Cosmetics Marble Blush in Sunshine over the cream blush which illuminated my skin for the most natural and subtle glow! I also brushed a little down the bridge of my nose to highlight.
For the eyes, I kept it really neutral because I wanted my lashes to really pop, so I just applied a light base and thin layer of black liquid liner. Now I’m fairly picky on my mascara. It’s all about the applicator! 2nd Love Cosmetics Rose Mascara is so amazing! My lashes are clumpless, long and full!
To finish up the look, I combined 2nd Love Cosmetics Signature Lipstick in Dusty Rose and glossed it up with the Pout Plumping Lip Gloss in Coralina.
I absolutely love this look for day or for night. When it comes to makeup, I like to look like a better version of myself and 2nd Love Cosmetics can help you do just that. I hope you enjoyed this look! If you want to learn more about 2nd love cosmetics, check them out at www.2ndlovecosmetics.com.
