Happy Friday and welcome to My Biggest Beauty Product Give Away! It’s the last day of my giveaway in celebration of Connecticut in Style turning three and this is a really good one.
But first, a personal story that made me so happy. Recently, I ran into a friend at a local store. We live in the same town and our sons have known each other since Kindergarten. I hadn’t seen her since the summer, and she looked radiant – and I told her so. It was then that I got paid the best compliment that anyone can give me. She said “I read about the Bare Minerals makeup you blogged about and I am using it now. I always had trouble with my skin breaking out from the other product I used. The Bare Minerals stuff is amazing, I have it on right now.” My heart sang! And because you might be curious, here is the blog post about Bare Minerals.
I love using my blog as a platform to share my favorite discoveries. Whether it’s a beauty tip or how to rock leather pants – I know how good I feel when I look my best. Since launching my blog three years ago, and spending more time in front of the camera, I’ve learned a lot about makeup. Between learning tips and tricks from professional makeup artists, consultations with makeup experts and my own experimentations, I am light years ahead of where I was a few years ago.
One of the things that has made a huge difference in perfecting my makeup, is using primers. Previously, I ignored primers. I really didn’t see the point and if I am going to be honest – I didn’t think that they would make a difference. However, I remember getting ready in the morning to attend a blogger event and by the time the afternoon came, I looked washed out. My mascara and eyeliner were still in place, but I found myself touching up everything else. After this happened enough times, I knew I needed to consult with a makeup expert.
I visited a local Sephora, spent over an hour trying samples and getting advice from the beauty experts about what they liked and what they were hearing that other customers liked. With my little black and white striped bag in my hand, I came home with several different primers to try. I got one for my face, one for my eyelids and one for my lips. The next morning, I had one of those “Ah ha” moments. The primers made a huge difference not only in how effortlessly my makeup glided on, but also how it added to its longevity. Ready to see all the goodies?

Now it’s probably obvious why I am so excited to share this giveaway with you! I’ve hand selected my favorite primer makeup products for foundational beauty. In addition to the primers, I was able to find FENTY by Rihanna’s Universal Gloss Bomb. It’s been sold out everywhere, and I literally got the last tube in the store (virtual high five). It’s a universal shade, I describe it as a very pretty bronze color – so it will good look on anyone’s lip regardless of the color and tone of your skin.
