CoverGirl was the first makeup brand I ever used. As a teenager in the 90s, I appreciated that it was reasonably priced and easily obtainable, since I could get it at my local Walmart, where I just happened to work (my first job!). Years later, the brand continues to be affordable and accessible and offers a huge variety of products for everyone.
I clearly remember sneaking into my mom’s bathroom around that same time and borrowing her Oil of Olay Beauty Fluid. Now it’s just known as Olay, but the collection of quality moisturizers and cleansers continues to be one of the most recognizable skincare brands around.
With a couple of upcoming trips and family get-togethers on the horizon, I stopped by Walmart last week to stock up on beauty items. I keep my daily skincare and makeup routine pretty basic during the summer months – cleanser, moisturizer, sunscreen, eyeliner, mascara, a rosy lipstick, and pressed powder – but it’s always fun to go shopping!
Mascara is probably the product I buy most often. Did you know that it should be replaced every 3 months or so, to keep it fresh and safe for your eyes? An easy way to remember when to buy a new one is to do so when the season changes. My current favorite is CoverGirl® LashBlast Volume Mascara. Its patented volume-boosting hypoallergenic mascara formula is designed to max out each and every lash, leaving you with the ultimate big-lash look. My trick for covering every lash is to wiggle the mascara brush a little as you’re applying it. Let it dry for a few seconds, and reapply. I make sure to swipe the outer corners to open up my eyes a little. Black brown is my preferred shade, though I’m fine with black, too.
Eyeliner lasts me a lot longer… pretty much until I used it all up, or get tired of the color. CoverGirl® Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner pencil is conveniently self-sharpening and glides on easily so I get the perfect line every time. The smudger tip gives me control and versatility, so I can soften the look a bit, if I’d like. Espresso and plum velvet are my usual picks, but this time I bought a liner in Grey Khaki and really like the color! It’s a warm, brownish-grey.
Pressed powder finishes my look. My face tends to get oily as the day goes by, so it’s great for midday touch-ups on the go! CoverGirl® CG Smoothers Pressed Powder helps minimize the appearance of imperfections and redness for a beautiful, smooth complexion and a perfectly finished look that lasts. Its conditioning formula with chamomile is designed with AquaCurrent Science, which is said to enhance the movement and retention of moisture on your skin. Interesting, huh?
A swipe of my favorite lipstick, and I’m out the door!
Skincare is essential, of course. I don’t leave the house without sunscreen. That’s a given. But how you care for your skin at home is also important.
Cleanser. Olay® Ultra Moisture Beauty Bars are specially made with shea butter and have a creamy moisturizing lather that leaves your skin feeling clean, soft, and smooth. Gentle enough for use on your face, they leave your skin smelling AMAZING and deliver Olay deep moisturizers while helping wash away dry surface skin. My daughters also love these bars.
Moisturizer. Olay Regenerist® Micro-Sculpting Cream™ is a moisturizer that penetrates deep into your skin’s surface layers to fight the look of fine lines and wrinkles, revealing brighter, younger-looking skin. It’s never too early to start fighting wrinkles!
Walmart helps you save on beauty items that you love and that keep you looking your best! Stop at your local Walmart for some of your favorite goodies that help you feel beautiful, such as Olay® Ultra Moisture Beauty Bars, Olay Regenerist® Micro-Sculpting Cream™, CoverGirl® LashBlast Volume Mascara, CoverGirl Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner pencil and CoverGirl CG Smoothers Pressed Powder.
