The Three-Minute Makeup Routine


Did you hit the alarm a few too many times? You shouldn’t have to pay for missing your alarm by rushing out looking pale and drab. Life is busy. We can’t change that, but we can work around it. To make sure you always arrive at work looking put together, it is important you add some highlights to your features. Doing this obviously includes wearing cowgirl inspired clothes, styling your hair, and putting on makeup, no matter how minimal.

The secret to the 3 minute makeup look is choosing one feature to play with. It could be your eyes or your lips. Take your time to work on one of those and that will be the only thing people will notice about your face.

Here’s a routine you can work with:

Use a BB Cream

BB creams give the combination of moisturizer, foundation, and sunscreen. Using a BB cream will cut a three step routine into one, saving lots of time you don’t have. Apply your BB cream evenly all over your face, and remember to blend into your neck. We recommend using the Bronco BB Cream which comes in different shades to suit all skin tones and the large foundation brush for blending.


At this point, you have to decide if you are going to focus on your eyes or your lips.


For Your Eyes

Choose a bright color that you’re sure goes with your skin tone. A good way to know what color matches your skin tone is to check for the ones directly opposite your eye color on the color wheel (see image below). Apply it to your lid then blend in at the top and outer edges using a shade very similar to your skin color. We recommend our Eye Shadow Trios for these perfectly matched colors. Quickly moisturize your lips using the High Noon Lip Moisturizer or the Bodacious Botanical Lip Gloss if you prefer a glossy look.

For Your Lips

Use a bold color from the Go West Lipstick range to give that pop to your face. Line your lips using a Latigo Lip Liner Pencil similar to the lipstick, then apply the lipstick generously on your lips. Make sure the liner blends in with your lip color.


Apply Mascara

Whether you go for the eye look or the lip look, it is important you apply mascara to your lashes. This help to open up your eyes and add thickness to your lashes. The Lash ‘em Up Mascara contains long lasting ingredients and adds the perfect amount of color to your lashes.

Remember to set your makeup base using the Let’s Ride Finishing Powder for a long lasting stay.

Beauty Resolutions Every Cowgirl Should Have In 2017

Every year we all promise ourselves we will change something- be better at something- whether we say it out loud or not. Often, these resolutions don’t last beyond the first month of the year (let’s not kid ourselves), but for those things we really want, we usually work to keep our promises.

With the New Year, we hope that more of you are making beauty resolutions, and these are some of the ones we are making to ourselves. Feel free to be inspired, or to straight up steal from them. We are all about sharing (you can have that one too ;).



    Wear Bold Lip Colors

The last couple of years have been all about getting the perfect nude lips. It’s time to go back to wearing striking colors. Check out the Go West Lipstick for an array of beautiful lip shades to choose from.

 

Moisturize All Over After Every Shower

We can all admit that in some moments of laziness or haste we chose to moisturize only a few, visible parts of our skin. It is important to moisturize all over after every shower to retain hydration in your skin and keep it soft and supple. It is also an important anti-aging step. For best care, we recommend the Churned Butter Body Moisturizer.


Clean Your Makeup Brushes Regularly

Promise yourself your makeup brushes will be cleaned every week. Leaving product on your brushes to collect dirt and particles is only setting yourself up for major skin issues. For many people, cleaning out their makeup brushes is all they need to get rid of a skin issue they’ve been battling with expensive skincare products and appointments.


Never Sleep With Makeup On Again

We all know how harmful this can be on our skin, but we still do it. Make a conscious decision to always head for the bathroom rather than your bed when you come back home from a long day. Go to the skincare section of the store to shop for everything you need to keep your skin healthy.


Switch Up Your Makeup Routine

It’s normal to fall into a routine of doing the same look every day, especially when you’ve perfected it. For the New Year, go out of your comfort zone and try a new eye shadow blend, switch out matte lips for glossy lips, or try out a new lip liner. You’ve probably forgotten the rush that comes with finding a perfect new look, but you can get it back with the new year.

 

From the Cowgirl Dirt team, we wish you a happy, exciting new year!

The All Natural Ingredients You Need For A Good Start To Your Year


Cowgirl Dirt as a brand prides itself on being able to provide amazing products which are made of all natural ingredients. This is because these products cannot cause any short term or long term harm to users. These natural ingredients also come with awesome benefits that work to give you better, healthier skin. Here are some of the major ingredients we use and the benefits you get when you use a Cowgirl Dirt product:


Sunflower Seed Oil

This oil contains healthy fatty acids that help to preserve firmness and tightness in the skin, giving it a smooth, youthful appearance. It also protects the skin from free radicals, preventing damage in the skin cells. This oil is a major ingredient in the Blue Ribbon Face Moisturizer which is perfect for super dry skin.

Organic Beeswax

Beeswax is a very essential skincare ingredient because it literally attracts water. When it is applied to the skin, it attracts water molecules, making sure that your skin is always hydrated. All Cowgirl Dirt products containing this ingredient were made using only certified organic beeswax. The High Noon Lip Moisturizer is made using beeswax to give your lips a dose of intense hydration every time you use it.

Cucumber

Cucumber distillate is a powerful anti-aging ingredient as it contains silica which helps to strengthen collagen and elastin in the skin. It is also very soothing to the skin and is packed with antioxidants. Cucumber distillate is one of the major ingredients in the Moonshine Night Repair Cream.

Organic Aloe Vera Extract

The gel extracted from this plant contains hormones that help speed up healing in damaged skin cells. It also has anti-inflammatory benefits and speeds up skin cell renewal. Organic aloe vera extract is a major ingredient in the Morning Glory Hydration Cleanser and the Morning Dew Face Moisturizer.

Non GMO Natural Vitamin E Oil

This is a major ingredient for lip products. It supplies the lips with antioxidants and protects the top skin layer from free radicals that could harm the skin cells. The oil is non GMO (not genetically modified) and 100% organic.

 Macadamia Oil

This oil is very important for soft, supple, and well moisturized skin. It contains Omega 9 which promotes skin regeneration. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and helps to prevent water loss in the skin. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave a greasy/oily film on the skin. Macadamia oil is one of the major ingredients in the Moonshine Night Repair Cream.

Perfect Winter Protection For Your Skin

Posted by Cowgirl Dirt on 1/2/2017 to Skincare
Perfect Winter Protection For Your Skin

With the white glittery snow comes less cheerful things like cold, dry air that makes makeup application harder. We have all experienced issues like dry skin, oily patches, blotchiness and flakiness after being exposed to the cold air. Going through all that with makeup on usually makes the situation even worse as most times, the makeup dries up (and looks cakey) or moves around the face in a weird way. 

Here are some tips to help you perfect your foundation application for an all day flawless look!

  • Exfoliate

The cold air makes the dry skin cells on our faces even more obvious, leaving the skin with dry patches. Exfoliate your skin twice in a week to get rid of the flaky skin. Doing this would leave you with smooth, clear skin.

  • Use a Hydrating Cleanser

They are not harsh on your skin and work to protect and boost your skin’s moisture content. Hydrating cleansers usually contain ingredients that keep your skin healthy in harsh weather conditions. We recommend using the Morning Glory Hydration Cleanser.

  • Moisturize Properly

Keep your skin soft and smooth by moisturizing it with the Blue Ribbon Face Moisturizer. It is a very hydrating but non greasy formula that would keep your skin soft and supple all day. Your foundation needs a good base for flawless application.

  • Use a Hydrating Primer To Form a Barrier

The theme to this routine is hydration - that is the best way to battle the dry air. Use a hydrating primer that would absorb your foundation properly and give a good barrier between the makeup and your skin.

  • Use a Liquid Foundation

To avoid the possibility of getting cake faced, use only liquid foundations like the Rio Grande Liquid Foundation. They hold some amount of moisture that would make them a better option for winter makeup. Apply your foundation using the Foundation Sponge Applicator. Unlike a foundation brush, pressing the sponge into your skin doesn’t pose any risk for irritation. Most people develop sensitive skin during this season so the sponge applicator is the best option.

  • Set Your Foundation With Finishing Powder

To help your makeup last even longer, set it using the Let’s Ride Finishing Powder.
