Fun fact: CoverGirl was the first makeup brand I used as a teen. My mom bought me CoverGirl’s compact foundation. I remember feeling soooo cool as I pulled out that marbled green compact from my backpack in English class.
Fast forward to 2015: I’m turning thirty in August (eek!) and here I am using the same product. Amazing how things come full circle. I created this easy summer look with products courtesy of Walmart and P&G. Walmart is a great source for summer beauty on a budget. I want you to get your makeup fix, too, so P&G is providing a $25 Walmart gift card to one lucky reader! Read the end of this post to find out how to win.

After applying my face makeup, I gently patted and blended CoverGirl CG Smoothers Pressed Powder on my T-Zone. Oh man, I felt such nostalgia as I opened up the compact. I placed the translucent powder on my t-zone to help minimize shine throughout the day.

I concentrated CoverGirl Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner Pencil in Midnight Blue on the outer corner of the lash line and slightly winged it out. I love this shade of blue! It's a great alternative to black liner. It's sultry and bold without being too bright. I also lined my lower lash line and softened it with the smudger tip of the pencil.

CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara is a hypoallergenic, volumizing mascara. With the help of the big brush, I coated all my lashes. After three coats, my lashes were long and voluminous.
I hope you enjoyed this makeup look! Whether you want to do a full face of makeup or simply stick to mascara with a little color on lash line, creating a summertime look with CoverGirl staples is easy and affordable. I plan to film a step-by-step tutorial featuring this makeup later this week; be on the look out for that soon. As always, thanks for reading and good luck with the giveaway! xx
