a collection of IT Cosmetics products against a pink and orange backgroundWith a collection that’s packed with solutions to help so many skin concerns, {IT Cosmetics} is all about make up that helps solve your skin problems and build back confidence, so that everyone can feel their best.

The brand was founded by Jamie Kern Lima, who when working as an award-winning news anchor, struggled to find the right solutions and make up to suit her own skin issues. Setting out to create the products she was looking for herself, she partnered with both plastic surgeons and dermatologists to get the formulas just right. And so, IT Cosmetics was born. Now worn by make up lovers all over the world, the brand has become a leader in the industry, boasting America’s number 1 foundation with its full coverage {Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream SPF 50}.

While winning awards for its cult CC creams, the IT Cosmetics collection is also packed with plenty of other essentials for your make up bag. From the range of kind-to-skin and age-defying {skin care} to must-haves like the {Bye Bye Pores Poreless Finish Airbrush Powder} and {IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer}, you’ll find everything you need for a perfect, filter-finish make up look.
