Makeup Monday: CVS/Pharmacy Beauty Board





I'm incredibly excited to announce my partnership with CVS/Pharmacy as a member of their brand new Beauty Board! As the style expert of the board, I'll be showing how to incorporate the latest style trends into everyday life.

Since I started Makeup Mondays, many of you have requested more affordable cosmetic recommendations. With The Beauty Board, I'll be doing just that! I'll be giving dedicated tutorials, trend reports and personal product recommendations within reach for everyone, both on the CVS Beauty Club facebook page and on some of my Makeup Monday posts. You don't have to break the bank (when it comes to makeup or fashion) in order to look and feel great; it's achievable at any budget. The hardest part is knowing where to start - and that's why I started my tutorial features. Practice and a little bit of guidance will make a world of difference. While I have a tendency to feature more dramatic looks, I'm going to start incorporating more accessible, everyday looks as well - starting with this super simple one that is perfect for Summer.



This is my go-to look: foundation, blush, lipstick, eyeliner and mascara. It takes all of a few minutes to complete and anyone can do it, so I figured it was the perfect starting point. If you need tips on applying liquid or gel liner, I have a tutorial here. What I used:
foundation: Almay Clear Complexion makeup
blush: Revlon Berry Flirtatious cream blush
liner: Milani Liquid Liner
mascara: Revlon Grow Luscious
lipstick: Revlon Gentlemen Prefer Pink

Super simple and perfect for summer! I used Almay Clear Complexion makeup because it has a nice clean feeling, keeps the oil away and has buildable coverage (I use tinted moisturizer when I want sheerer coverage) and cream blush for a natural looking rosy glow. You can use a cheek tint or powder blush, if you prefer - and if you aren't 100% comfortable with liquid liner, use a pencil. If you're worried about matching your foundation without testing it first, keep in mind that they have a money back beauty guarantee on all beauty purchases. If it doesn't match or you don't like it, just bring it back and try something else.

Join the CVS Beauty Club here and make sure to keep up with our dedicated tab on the facebook page to check out my and the other Beauty Board members' tips, tricks and recommendations. Feel free to ask us any questions!



Full disclosure: I am a paid spokesperson of CVS/pharmacy Beauty Club Beauty Board.

  16. This is great! Especially when I feel like I go through makeup so slowly, it's hard to justify the high prices for some cosmetics!

  24. I'm actually about to head to CVS to exchange a lipstick I bought (Cover Girl "Fairytale") because it made my teeth look yellow. Definitely sticking to blue undertones. Congrats! Love the lipstick, maybe I'll get that instead...

  25. What a fun opportunity for you! I'm such a (drugstore) product junkie it will be fun to see what you do with it! The makeup look you have above is my everyday look. I'm always looking for bright, creamy pink lipsticks to add to my collection so I'll have to look for that Revlon one next time I'm out.

  30. CONGRATS on your partnership with CVS! I'm so excited for you!! This is a great look (and I love that it's with affordable products)! I do something similar as my daily look but definitely not as pretty or polished as this!

  33. What an awesome addition to your feature! This is basically the look I have every day but I found out yesterday that Sephora no longer carries my liquid eyeliner (Stila) so I'm really glad to read I can find one at CVS that you recommend. You've saved me some moolah!

  34. Awesome Keiko!! As much as I would love to use MAC and more expensive products being on a budget is limiting..most of my makeup arsenal is drugstore brands! They actually have some really great stuff, looking forward to your recommendations!
