Etos Beauty Products New at GIANT: Check Out My Makeup Tutorial!

Disclosure: I received a box full of Giant store brand items from GIANT in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are 100% my own.

Etos, a brand that has been around since 1919 is now available at GIANT. It is affordable but high quality. I should know, I had the chance to try some of the products and loved them all! I don't usually wear makeup for work but I do wear makeup outside of work. Complete opposite right? I know! They have makeup brushes, sponges, hair brushes, nail files, cosmetic bags, and bath accessories, lip glosses, pedicure and foot care products. As the year comes to a close and the new year begins, Giant will be introducing new Etos products so stay tuned! Remember these products are only available at GIANT/MARTIN'S stores. In my GIANT goodie box, I received a 4-way buffing block, ergonomic eyelash curler, tweezer, set of 3 smokey eye brushes, a loofah sponge, and a foundation brush.

I love wearing makeup, especially during the holidays. I incorporate the holiday/seasonal colors into my routine. I decided to go for nude/shimmery colors. Those colors reminded me of Thanksgiving. I will list below what Etos product I used and which makeup product I used with it as well.

For my base I used the Smashbox primer photo finish. I used my finger tips to apply the primer. The concealer I used is from Covergirl which I purchased at no cost thanks to coupons. I applied this by just making upside down triangles under my eyes and some on my acne spots. To highlight my face I used the Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter stick that I received in my Ipsy March Glam bag which by the way I loved. I drew a straight line starting at my nose down to my chin. In between my eyebrows I made a few lines - almost like a half star. I also outlined my eyebrows with the highlighter stick and blended that in with a concealer brush. For my foundation I used bareMinerals bareskin pure brightening serum foundation broad spectrum spf 20 in bare latte 11. I used the Etos Foundation brush to apply this foundation. To blend all of this I used my amazing beauty blender. I do all of this before putting my eye-shadow. I know some that do their eye makeup first but I do not.

The eye-shadow I used is from my Ipsy November Glam bag. It's by INSPR Beauty. The shade was called Carnival and gives a nice nude/bronze finish. To make the color sort of pop, I sprayed my brush just a tad bit using my Evian Facial Water Spray before I started applying the eye-shadow. For the bottom of my eye, I used the edge brush. I then used my Smashbox full exposure mascara from my Ipsy November Glam Bag. To curl my eye lashes, i used the Etos eyelash curler. For my eyebrows I used my Touch in Sol Mini browza Superproof gel brow pencil that was in my Ipsy October Glam Bag. I proceeded to check what else I had in my makeup bag and came across my hydra gel blush which came in my Ipsy April Glam bag. It's by Doll 10 and the color is called flirt. How awesome that most of the makeup I used came from my Ipsy bags?! And last but not least, my lips. I used Sonia Kashuk® Holiday Limited Edition Jazzed up Nude Palette. Sonia Kashuk products can be found exclusively at Target.

I could not be happier by the way this turned out. I love the brushes I received and the rest of the items. I love them enough to put my other brushes aside and use these as my primary brushes.
