I don’t know about you but it seems like every year, around this time, I start craving a beauty refresh. I hit that point where I just get a little bored with everything in my makeup bag, even though it has done nothing to cause me to fall out of love with it. I blame the weather, and it probably also has something to do with the slew of new beauty trends that come from fashion week.
Enter Cate McNabb Cosmetics. This Chicago based line is cruelty free, made in the USA, mineral based and paraben free. But fear not! You won’t sacrifice color or wear. Their makeup sets are stunning, and I’m here to show you how you can wear them for maximum impact!
A crucial step is prepping your skin prior to putting makeup on. If this is something you’ve already got in the habit of doing, great! If not, now is the time to start with Prime & Proper. This kit includes primer for your face and eyes, so you’re makeup stays in place. Top that off with finishing powder and some brow gel, and you’ve got your canvas ready to go!
For daytime use Everyday Express, it’s best to keep things simple; you just want to enhance what you’ve got. A wash of eyeshadow and some blush will give you a bit of color, and you can finish the look with a super pretty, natural lip. With staying power like this, you’re ready for whatever the day brings!
Sometimes you want a look with just a bit more pop! Enter the Pink, Pink, Pearl kit, it comes with illuminizer, lipstick and lip gloss — all in a gorgeous pink! This one warms up your complexion instantly. Remember, it’s important to add a touch of mascara so your eyes will pop as well!
If you’ve been craving something glam, try the Marsala & Mascara kit at night! A dramatic look like this is best saved for evening, because it’s a bit too dramatic for daytime. But that doesn’t mean we love it less! A dark eye paired with a bold lip is perfection. Again, complete the look with mascara!
