Enhanced Natural Look with City Cosmetics

Most mornings are spent roughhousing or making snacks for Zaden rather than spending time on my beauty routine. I like to keep things simple on a daily basis and usually don’t spend more than 10-15 minutes getting ready. Today I have some amazing products from City Cosmetics that I have been rotating into my makeup routine. I use these products regardless of whether I decide to wear makeup or not.

The makeup look I've put together for you guys today is a simple look that shouldn't take more than 5 minutes. I’m all about enhancing my natural beauty rather than covering up. I will start by reviewing the 4 products City Cosmetics has sent my way and then finish off the look with grooming my eye brows and adding some blush to my cheekbones. 

City CosmeticsComplexion Perfecting Cream $72 ($43.20 with discount code dearestlou)

I have been using this cream twice a day for the last couple of weeks and love how my skin feels! I wake up with a more even complexion and my skin feels firm and healthy. I normally have more distinct dark circles under my eyes, especially when I don’t get enough sleep. Since returning from vacation I have made more of a habit of getting adequate amount of rest and using this complexion cream daily and have notice that my skin looks more bright and even.  Also, since I have a bit of keratosis pilaris around my jaw line my skin tone is naturally more of a red tone in that area. This cream really helps even out my skin complexion without feeling the need to cover up.

City Cosmetics Pore Minimizing Primer $45 ($27 with discount code dearestlou)

I’m hooked on this primer, it’s the best! City Cosmetics Pore Minimizing Primer helps my makeup go on so evenly smooth and makes my blush last much longer than usual. Using natural ingredients this primer shrinks the appearance of large pores and fine lines, creating smoother skin. Immediately after applying this primer I can feel a difference in my skin and after using it for the last couple of weeks I've noticed that my pores on my nose have shrunk. On days that I choose to wear face makeup and or blush this primer is a must.

City Cosmetics CityLash $80 ($48 with discount code dearestlou)

I have been using the City Lash morning and night since we got back from our vacation at the end of last month and can already tell that it has strengthened my eye lashes. I want to wait at least 6 weeks before giving a full review on this product so I can show you guys my  before and after lashes. I’m on week 2 right now and can tell my lashes are significantly stronger and slightly longer than before.

Right before my wedding I used Latisse on my lashes before getting fake lashes applied and I know for a fact that it really helped my false lashes stay up and last longer. I know this because when I got fake lashes applied right before having Zaden my lashes didn’t stay up and didn’t look as nice as when I had them done on my wedding. $48 for an eyelash enhancing serum is such a steal and I can’t wait to see my before/after results!

I love City Lips. It naturally enhances my lips and diminished fine lines. It also brings out the natural pigment in my lips. In the picture above I didn't add a lipstick or lip liner, just a little bit of City Lips and 5 minutes later my lips looked more full and vibrant. The plumping effect lasts about 2-3 hours and I love that it doesn't feel gritty like other lip glosses I’ve tried in the past. For fuller lips I apply City Lips prior to putting on lipstick so it glides on smoothly and my lips appear bigger and fuller.

I finished off my naturally enhance look with grooming my eye brows and applying a little bit of blush. I love this brow groomer because it helps keep my eye brows in place and works kind of as eye brow gel. After applying the gel I filled in my eye brows. I then added blush to my cheek bones just to give my face some definition and color.
