If it wasn't obvious from all the products I listed in my tarte favorites post, I love makeup. Fortunately for me, it's a family affair, and my sisters and I are always discussing new products, fun shades, etc.
My older sister recently got a job with It Cosmetics, a problem-solving brand available at Ulta (edit: they've actually just recently made their way into Sephora! Woo!) I'd tried a few of their products in the past, but her new position was a great excuse to test out some more. Most of their face products aren't as full-coverage as I tend to opt for on a daily basis, but when I'm hanging out and looking to wear makeup that feels a bit more natural, these are always my go-to picks.
Here are my current favorite It Cosmetics products:
Remember what I said about It products not being full coverage? This is the exception, and it's also the concealer to beat all concealers. Don't let the name fool you - use this baby on your underage area, blemishes, and literally anything else you want erased. I also love this Illumination version for a more radiant finish.
That SPF tho! This is a great, natural-looking medium coverage product for me. It definitely perfects my skin, but it's no match for my acne scarring after a few hours. Still, I wear it whenever my skin is begging for a break, and I love the finish! This is my perfect pick for summertime.
For me, 2016 was the summer of cream and liquid products, and since I already rely pretty heavily on tarte's Cheek Stain for blush, I needed a cream bronzer. Cue this product, which I love and use almost daily. I blend it out with the larger side of the Heavenly Luxe Complexion Perfection Brush #7!
Whenever I rock the CC+ Cream, I always set it with this powder, which they technically market as a powder foundation that can be worn on its own. It increases the longevity of my look tenfold, and it keeps me from getting oily. I also use the lightest shade to set my under eye area, when I'm not using the Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder! (Side note - are you dying over this makeup bag by Jac Vanek?)
Completely obsessed with all of these products and more, and now that It Cosmetics is coming to a Sephora near you, I strongly encourage grabbing a couple of my favorites!
