One of the hardest parts of getting through my morning is finding time to get myself “ready”. Since I work from home, it’s easy to stay in sweatpants sans makeup all day, but I find that I’m much more productive when I pull myself together and put on a little makeup. Because my time is limited, I’m always on the hunt for multitaskers and time-saving products.
I recently discovered Cover FX, which is honestly something that I’ve been in search of for years. Before tinted moisturizers were a “thing,” I’d frequently mix together my own blend of foundation and oil-free face cream. This at-home mixology was the only way that I could get the level of moisturization I needed, with the custom tint I craved. But I’ve discovered that Cover FX offers Custom Cover Drops ($44), a professionally formulated product that makes this customized transformation possible without my own guesswork!
Here I am in all my bare-skinned glory. I’m makeup-free and sporting a freshly washed face. To get started, I grabbed a bottle of Cover FX Custom Infusion Drops ($48). The beauty brand offers these serum-like drops in four unique formulas that each promote anti-aging, calming, hydrating and radiance through a specially formulated boost of vitamins and essential oils. This particular morning I grabbed the calming formula (which features a healthy dose of vitamin E and chamomile!) and, just like the Custom Cover Drops I mentioned before, I added a tiny amount of the Custom Infusion Drops to my everyday base layer primer. I simply dropped, mixed and then felt the transformation as I smoothed it across my face.
The main reason why I can’t brag on these serum-like drops enough is that they allow me to choose my needs each specific morning. Let’s face it—we don’t always wake up feeling the exact same, so why should our serums and beauty products be the same every day? By having the flexibility to choose which vitamins and minerals to add to my skin based on my unique daily needs, I can rest assured that I’m giving myself the right type of love, totally customized to my mood. These Custom Infusion Drops allow me to have that control. I choose my needs—Vitamin A + Jasmine, E + Chamomile, F + Neroli or C + Lemongrass—and then mix the drops in with my daily creams. Just reading through those vitamins and essential oils makes me feel more calm and in control.
Next, I applied a layer of concealer (in an attempt to hide those under-eye bags!), and then I mixed a few drops of Cover FX Custom Cover Drops in with my moisturizer. Like the Custom Infusion Drops, the Custom Cover Drops come packed with pure pigments that allow at-home users to control and customize any liquid beauty product (think: foundations, serums, moisturizers, oils, primers). The secret is the Flash Fusion technology, which allows the drops to weightlessly combine with our everyday beauty staples, while at the same time giving us full control over both coverage and color.
Thanks to the incremental coverage Cover FX allows me to choose for my skin any given day, I was able to decide to use two small drops for medium coverage. After applying the product, I didn’t need much else besides a quick swipe of bronzer on my cheekbones. I curled my lashes, applied a thin line of brown eyeliner to the top of my eyes and finished the look with three quick coats of mascara. It took me under three minutes to complete my makeup and, afterward, I felt a little more together and ready to face the day!
