My mornings are busy, to say the least.
The kids are running around the house from 7 am and I barely have the time to brush my teeth let alone apply any makeup. Back in my pre-mom days, I loved getting myself ready, doing my hair and makeup whatever way was trendy that week. My go-to was always a natural glowy look and now even that feels like an impossible task.
I haven't gone into my makeup drawer in forever, I just know that my old products don't work with a mom-life. But I really want to get back into it - get rid of those dark circles on Zoom calls and the little bit of me-time in the process. I wasn't exactly sure what brand to turn to until a fellow mom recommended Thrive Causemetics.
She said that she had gone through the same makeup struggle I was in and I couldn't believe it. I thought she was just one of those super-moms that get everything done and look amazing. It turns out though her secret is Thrive Causemetics - a 100% vegan, cruelty-free beauty brand. She described them as "high-impact, low-maintenance" and I knew I needed to give it a shot.
I was a little weary that I wasn't going to see a difference or be able to apply these new products correctly but I went ahead and got the Buildable Blur CC Cream™ and the Brilliant Eye Brightener™. I couldn't wait for it to arrive and get back into the groove of makeup again… it's like riding a bike right?
After my products arrived (with a free makeup bag!) I knew I had made the right choice with Thrive Causemetics. The kids still ran wild in the morning but I was able to steal 5 minutes to myself to get ready. Starting with the Buildable Blur CC Cream™ all I needed was half a pump to 1 full pump and then applied it with my fingertips all over my face (you can use a sponge or brush too).
My skin has never looked so smooth from a CC cream, and the best part is that it does more than just color-correct. It's also packed with Broad Spectrum SPF 35 and moisturizes the skin, so I'm not worried about any dry flaking throughout the day like other foundations. The Blur Effect Technology™ blurs out all my fine lines and pores, while the Smart Pigment Technology™ helps to brighten and conceal my dark spots.
Plus, this formula, powered by vitamin C, flaxseed extract, and SPF, comes in 18 shades and can build from sheer to extra coverage. I'm loving the sheer, natural look but it's great knowing how versatile Thrive Causemetics products are. They are taking me from an at-home look to a future date night look.
Next, I added the Brilliant Eye Brightener™ to my look which is life-changing. It's a cream to powder formula that comes in 10 shades, including 3 new Soft Metallics. I got the "Stella," Champagne Shimmer shade, for a little natural gold shine and all I had to do was apply it to my eyelids, waterline, and inner corners of my eyes. It's so quick and easy to give my eyes the awakening they need!
I even used a pro-tip from Thrive Causemetics and applied it under my brow bone … wow, an instant eye lift. This product gives my eyes the extra little pop I've been wanting and all in a matter of minutes. On top of that, the ingredients are super nourishing, combining macadamia, meadowfoam, sunflower, and mango seed oil with vitamin E and jojoba oil.
My skin not only looks amazing with Thrive Causemetics but it feels great too. Their products are free of sulfates, parabens, and synthetic fragrances. I can even subscribe to my favorite products so they ship every 1-4 months and with free shipping, which is perfect because my time to shop online is so scarce right now.
Plus, with every purchase I make with Thrive Causemetics, they donate to help a woman thrive through their Bigger Than Beauty™ initiative.
I love that I have a new and improved beauty routine, that gives me that extra boost in the morning without taking time away from my family. Thrive Causemetics gives me the natural, glowy look I've been dreaming of and perfect for #momlife.
