Spring Awakening
Spring is here and the new season has me thinking about how much i love a naturally refreshed flawless complexion!  For this post, i've teamed up with my fellow Allure Magazine Beauty Blogger finalist Arielle of Beauty By Arielle to show you just what products we find essential to create a wonderful 'spring awakening' look!  Take a peek at Arielle's post here.  It's no secret that i'm a HUGE It Cosmetics fan.  While i've tried a plethora of products, nothing gives me a perfectly flawless complexion like the three It Cosmetics products pictured above.  The CC cream, Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer and Celebration Foundation are permanent fixtures in my daily makeup repertoire.  I begin by applying CC cream all over my face using a plush foundation brush.  A few dabs of Bye Bye Under Eye concealer instantly give me that 'i've just slept for a million hours look' even when i've barely slept for four!  Celebration Foundation seals the deal by setting the previous products into my skin while giving me a porcelain like finish.  Another amazing product that i've recently tried and LOVED is Pixi's Eye Brightener Liner!  A few swipes of this waterproof liner on your inner rim will instantly brighten your eyes!  Pssst... check out all the other tricks i can do with this little liner!  Such a tiny addition can make a major difference in your overall appearance!  I swear, these four products are among my absolute favorite 'can't live without' situations! Perfection!

Thank you SO MUCH for reading!  Be sure to check out Beauty by Arielle for fun beauty posts!
