A recent Cover Girl survey said that two-thirds of women weren’t impressed with their selfies after they had taken them. I can relate because most of the time when I take a picture of myself I don’t always like the way I look either. For my next picture Cover Girl suggested four of their make-up products for the perfect selfie look.
I had the perfect test. I had a ballroom dancing demonstration at school. I wanted to look nice but not overly done up, like the ladies on Dancing with the Stars. These products gave me a nice look for my performance and my selfie.
I really liked the Bombshell Volume mascara because my eyelashes felt longer and more noticeable. The two-sided stick has one side for volume and the other for darker lashes. To cover a few of those blemishes, the ones no one else sees but I know they are there I like the Tru Blend foundation. I only use this a tiny bit to cover spots not all over as a layer on my face. The Smoochies Sizzle Gloss is perfect for plumping your lips. Plus it comes in lots of different colours, smells really good and makes your lips sparkle. The Tru Magic Skin Perfector makes your skin look matte and smooth, like a powder but without the dusty look. It’s a light balm that does not make your face feel wet or like there is cream on your face.
I loved all these products. I didn’t need to wear a lot to magnify my best features and make my face look smooth and flawless. For some fun I’m giving away a Cover Girl #covermoment kit containing all four of the products I used above. Comment below with your favorite Cover Girl product for a chance to win.
