All-American Girl Look with Mary Kay® + GIVEAWAY!

I was born ‘n raised around horses. They were my passion and the cowgirl life was pure bliss for me. My first job was at the age of 13 working on a ranch, so you bet country music was part of my life. In fact, it uses to be the only music I listened to for many years. To this day country music is my favorite, so when I found out that Mary Kay® is the Official Beauty Sponsor of the 50th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards airing Sunday, April 19, 2015 at 8/7c on CBS, I got excited! I love the Country Music Awards and have been using Mary Kay® products for years now.

Since they are the Official Beauty Sponsors this year, they have created three beauty looks inspired by the country life: Queen of Country, All-American Girl and Boho Beauty. You can currently see all three looks, plus a tutorial video, of each look on the Mary Kay® ACM site. My personal style nowadays matches most with the All-American Girl next store look, but back in the day I would have totally been Queen of Country.

Today I am re-creating the All-American Girl look for you all. This look is all about the classic girl next store look with a rosy glow.

For this look, I started with my eyes by applying the MK Pale Blush Cream Eye Color all over my eyelids, followed by Precious Pink Mineral Eye Color over top. These are both very soft and subtle shades that give just enough color. It looks effortless and totally girl next store. I then lined both my upper and lower lash lines with the MK Deep Brown Eyeliner and smudged it in with a smudge brush. I always reach for a brown liner when I am going for a girl next door or no makeup look. To finish the eyes I layered two coats of the Lash Love Lengthening Mascara in I <3 Black. Moving onto the cheeks, I applied this gorgeous MK Mineral Cheek Color in Strawberry Cream for the perfect cheeky glow. This is probably my favorite part of this entire look! I love the glow and flush of color it gives my cheeks. To top the look, simply apply an apricot or pink lippie. I opted for a pink lippie in this look. This entire look is minimal, effortless but totally gorgeous and something I like to wear on a daily basis.
