Covergirl and #GirlsCan + Giveaway!

"As strong women, we can do anything we put our minds to, and COVERGIRL knows that #GirlsCan follow their dreams and turn any can’t into a can! Whether you’re tackling an obstacle the day has thrown your way or you’re gearing up for a girls’ night out on the town, COVERGIRL can help keep you feeling empowered and beautiful."

That is a great opening! That was the opening statement in the email sent to me, and that is what got me interested in this campaign. I have a daughter, and I plan to teach her that girls can do anything they want! Girls should not be held to any stereotypical box that people think girls should fit into. I also explain this to my son! I make sure he understands girls can play sports like football, girls can do whatever boys can do. Being a girl isn't a disability, or something that should hold you back. Be proud to be a girl. Stand up, stand for a cause, play the sport you love, become the scientist that cures cancer. Do whatever your heart desires! Don't let anyone stop you.

The COVERGIRL #GirlsCan campaign promotes the empowerment of women by encouraging them to break down barriers and turn "can't" into "can". COVERGIRL is turning "can't" into "can" by donating $50,000 to Dress For Success. If you aren't familiar, Dress For Success helps disadvantaged women find jobs by providing professional clothing, a network of support and even career development tools. They started in 1997, and since then they've helped more than 775,000 women worldwide.

To help this movement, the #GirlsCan mascara comes in two varieties at Walmart everyday low prices: Flamed Out and Professional All-in-One.

For this campaign, COVERGIRL sent me the Flamed Out Mascara and a $50 Walmart gift card to create an inspirational look. See the #GirlsCan on the label. That's what you want to look for! This is how you can help COVERGIRL donate to Dress For Success.

 And this is what I bought with the gift card.

Originally that pot of brown eyeshadow was a pretty dark blue. But when I got home (and after I took the pic) I noticed that the eyeshadow had a chunk missing. So I took it back and exchanged it for that brown pot, and bought the blue shadow single.

Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation in 115

Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Blue Bloom
Colorlicious Gloss in Give Me Guava (light pink/peach color)

Colorlicious in Pinkalicious (pink/purple color)
Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Eye Shadow in Sapphire Sparkle

Flamed Out Eye Shadow Scorching Cocoa
Professional Waterproof Mascara Very Black

Apparently $50 can go a LONG way with COVERGIRL! I've never realized how inexpensive they are, and they have been a favorite brand of mine for a long time (you can look back and see that I've posted about them before).

And here is the look I put together. One with my glasses, one without.
 I used the Ready Set Gorgeous foundation, Eye Enhancers in Golden Sunrise, Liquiline Blast in Blue Bloom on my lower waterline, Flamed Out mascara, Outlast Lip color in Berry Delicious but instead of using the gloss that comes with it, I topped it with the Give Me Guava Colorlicious lip gloss. A very simple, easy and ready for either work or just as an every day look. It isn't too overdone, and the pop of color on my lower lid is a favorite of mine. This look will take you only about 10 mins to do (if that). And will have you ready for the day.

Oh, and the outlast lip color- I put it on ataround 3pm Thursday, it was still on my lips at 1am Friday morning, and when I woke up at around 10am Friday I STILL saw the color on my lips! Truly does what it says it will. I'll be buying more of these! I need one in every color available. lol.
