This post is sponsored by COVERGIRL but all opinions are my own and very, very real…as per usual.
Guys, I’ve blogged about COVERGIRL like a million times (because I love it) and when they asked me to be their COVERGIRL Beauty Ambassador, I yelped with excitement. You know you’re going to be watching the MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday (at 9pm!), so make sure you are also following me on Twitter and Instagram, because I will be hosting an intimate viewing party at my apartment. I know, I know…this means that, yes, I’ll have to clean my entire apartment and put away all of the random beauty products that I have thrown all over my loveseat. It’s a sad, but true story. So basically, not only do you get to check out the behind-the-scenes from my viewing party, where I’ll be sharing my favorite red carpet looks, but you ALSO get to see a few glimpses of my Hollywood Hills apartment. Lucky you, lol. I’m pretty pumped about it because not only is COVERGIRL providing gift bags and food from one of LA’s fiiiinest restaurants, but they also hired one of my favorite makeup artists EVER: Ms. Emily Warren! Emily and I go waaaay back to when I was doing beauty PR and she was an editor at COSMOgirl! Ahh, memories. I digress.
Here are the details:
MTV and COVERGIRL want to know, what’s your #covermoment? A #covermoment is the moment when a woman feels her most beautiful and empowered and wants to share it with the world. Whether it’s a selfie (but god, you know I hate those) or a group shot with friends, these are the moments in your life that you feel your most confident, independent, authentic self. COVERGIRL’s #covermoment tool will pull in Instagram and Twitter posts using the hashtag #covermoment from across the globe, bringing together celebrities, artists, and users all in one place, which is pretty awesome…and inspiring.
Anywho, I want you guys to join along, using the #covermoment hashtag! Tell me who you think rocked the red carpet! .
Here are my top COVERGIRL makeup pics, especially for Los Angeles:
COVERGIRL Lipslicks Smoochies Lip Balm in “Tweet Me”: The name…oh so appropriate for the VMAs, right? There’s something very Hollywood glam about a fun red lip, which is why I’m really into this glossy, bright balm. It’s hydrating and non-sticky (my favorite).
COVERGIRL & OLAY Tone Rehab Foundation: Sadly, the word “rehab” is kind of synonymous with Hollywood but I still think it makes waaaay more sense when it comes to skincare. COVERGIRL & OLAY’s CC Cream products conceal and cover instantly, while also working to correct and improve skin tone over time. A CC Cream (Color + Correction) is a new way to get luminous coverage for youthful, radiant looking skin. The Tone Rehab product line works instantly to cover and even out your skin tone, while also helping to improve skin tone over time. One pump instantly covers discolorations, lines and wrinkles.
COVERGIRL Clean Glow Bronzer: Obviously, I’m a super pale girl living in a super tan WORLD (out here in Los Angeles), so a bronzer is necessary ALWAYS. I like this bronzer, in particular, because it’s great for sensitive skin and also not too bronze.
One more thing. As if you need yet another reason to watch the VMAs (you don’t) but here’s a little secret: The very first “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” COVERGIRL TV commercial will air during the VMAs! If you don’t already know, COVERGIRL is set to release a total of 12 high-fashion beauty looks, each inspired by a district in the film! I’m pretty much dying to see all 12 looks, especially since I’ve only seen Fishing and Luxury so far. You can’t miss it.
