I want to start this post off by explaining that I am in no way a makeup expert. Years ago, I got someone to show me how to do a 5-10 minute face and I have stayed loyal to that mantra for at least 8 years now. However, over the past couple years I have been introduced to a brand that is slowly but surely creeping into my makeup bag and taking over. IT Cosmetics is a fantastic brand of subtle and easy to use products for the every girl. Or at least that’s how I think of it. It is one of the least intimidating makeup brands out there, and their brushes are phenomenal.
I’m going to break down for y’all my absolute favorite products of theirs and why I love them!

Je Ne Sais Quoi Complexion Perfection Face Palette: Y’all. This product really does make your face perfect, or at least as perfect as you can! It really is an all-in-one palette, as it has a bronzer, blush, luminizer and pressed powder in one easy to use palette. The blush is a gorgeous pink shade anyone can wear!
Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Full Coverage Concealer: If you have issues with dark circles or if you need something to hide how late you were out last night, this is the concealer for you! It is a miracle worker and you don’t even have to use that much to make an impact!
Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil: Everyone loves a good brow these days. Like I said before, I am not a makeup expert but I do have a trick for how I get a defined, yet not penciled in looking brow, even though I use this pencil every single day. I start by drawing a line under the brow hairs, basically creating a super defined base, then I feather up with the pencil to fill in my brows. Once you’ve got them as filled in as you like, brush them through to smudge. I swipe a little bit of the luminizer from the face palette under my brow where I drew the line to soften it a bit.
Brush Bath Purifying Brush Cleaner: I am probably the worst at cleaning my makeup brushes, so it is kind of comical I am adding this to my list. However, if you are looking for a low maintenance, easy to use brush cleaner that dries quickly, this is it! I can almost not be lazy about cleaning my brushes because of how easy this makes it.
CC+ Radiance Ombre Blush: One of my favorite makeup products to wear has got to be blush. I love a good bright cheek moment, and this ombre blush gives it to me every time. It is a gorgeous mix of pink shades and who doesn’t love a good ombre!?
CC+ Illumination Full Coverage Cream: This is by far my favorite of all the BB/CC creams I’ve ever used. It is lightweight and a pretty color for my skin tone and does not feel like I am wearing any makeup! I am not a girl who needs heavier makeup for the nighttime, so if you’re looking for a good everyday CC cream, this is your gal.
Bye Bye Makeup 3-in-1 Cleansing Balm: If you purchase one item from this list, let it be this one. THIS IS LITERALLY LIFE CHANGING. If there is one thing I hate, it is removing my makeup at the end of the day. Literally the worst thing, as the makeup wipes I used to use would make my face feel extremely washed out and just icky! But y’all this stuff gets everything off, seriously everything. Love a bold lip but hate removing it, no more worries. This coconut oil- feeling product will remove the stain in a flash. Seriously I can’t brag on this stuff enough.
PHEW. That was exhausting, but hopefully helpful! I am considering doing a run-through of my daily makeup routine, which will showcase pretty much all of these products on my Instagram Stories soon so let me know if that is something y’all would be interested in?!
