Origins Haul – CC Cream and Everyday Lipstick

I purchased these items from Origins, and they’ve become beauty staples!

Origins CC Cream and Liptint Rain and Shine

Watch my video to see what I use, why I love it, the difference between CC Creams and BB Creams, and a great lip color for everyday.

ORIGINS HAUL – CC CREAM AND EVERYDAY LIPSTICK

Although I liked the Garnier BB Cream I previously did a review on, I found that I favored this CC Cream. I liked that I still got the ease of applying multiple solutions (SPF, color, moisture, pore minimizer, etc.) with one swipe and that it’s more natural for my skin. It works for all skin types, and comes in Light/Medium (what I used) and Medium/Deep shades. It’s one product that I can use as I’m transitioning from hot to cold seasons, without having to worry about too much/too little coverage or needing a “tanner” skin base.

The only downside is that of course Origins is more expensive than drugstore brands, but I feel it’s better quality and a little goes a long way. The lipstick as I mentioned is AWESOME, especially since I am usually a gloss girl. This line is not heavy or sticky, and is really moisturizing. It actually has shea butter and grapeseed oil to hydrate.

The products also smell great, with the CC Cream having the signature Origins spa-like scent, and the lipstick having a minty scent and flavor.

Have you tried CC Cream? What do you wear on your lips everyday?

How to get a Flawless Face

I recently got a request to do a flawless face tutorial, and I LOVE requests! There are many things that can go into a flawless face, starting with good skincare, but I wanted to focus this tutorial on an everyday makeup routine that’s a perfect base for ANY makeup look. I cover tips and techniques for achieving this look and making it your own, touching on a few beauty tricks. It really depends on how much coverage you’re going for, but for my preference I like a minimal look for everyday, which I showcase in the video. I do mention ways to get heavier coverage though (which I love to do for nighttime or blotchy skin problems), so make sure to watch the entire thing!

I forgot to mention in the video that before you start any flawless face look, you start with a clean, moisturized face. I also like to add face primer to smooth out skin and have makeup last longer.
