THEE Extra Step: Color Correcting 🟠🔴👩🏽🦱
Color correcting isn’t new by any means, but for ME recently it has become the new revolutionary staple in my makeup routine. I have some discoloration around my eyes and mouth area & even though I wear Full coverage foundation it still peaked through and I didn’t like it so I was on the hunt for a solution. I didn’t have to look far seen as that I know makeup (duh) but I did want to approach color correcting differently than I did in the past. When I first started out in my makeup I did color correct but i use to over do it & i was using a color that was soo wrong for my skin tone and undertones. Funny thing is I was scrolling on IG & seen a video of a black woman explaining color correctors and which shades would be good for deep skin tones. I watched it back a couple of times and I felt a little more confident in finding the perfect color corrector for my undertones. I went to my local Ulta ( hot mess btw, they haven’t look right since they re-opened) and got the L.A. Girl - HD Pro Concealer in Orange Corrector & let me tell YOU! It made a huge difference! after applying a thin layer of the product I bluffed it out with a stipling brush and then applied foundation & concealer that are in my normal routine. Color correcting can also save you from using so much foundation trying to cover those darker areas.

This Pumping Lipgloss is FIRE 🔥🔥 & its $8✨✨
How is it that THIS drugstore lipgloss is giving the mid and luxury beauty brands a RUN for their money? Let me tell you, this MAYBELLINE - Lifter Gloss With Hyaluronic Acid is the TRUTH!! From the packaging to the actual gloss it’s a great product, I seen this posted on Trendmood & a person here on Cherie. I read through some of the comments on Trendmood and the overall response was packaging was giving KKW Beauty & “what’s so special about this gloss”. There were here & there excited comments & being someone who purchase these not even looking to purchase it, was genuinely surprised! I got the shade in 009 and it’s VERY comparable to my FENTY BEAUTY - Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizerwhich i’m running low on but now that I have this lipgloss idk i’ll be buying Ms.Fenty. I got it at my local Ulta, which I must say is a mess by the way, and I got it for 8.99. A bomb gloss for a bomb price! It’s comfortable to wear and doesn’t give that weird yucks gloss feeling. I want to purchase more colors, I wish I did while I was at Ulta. Have you tried this lipgloss? If you have what are your thoughts? After reading this will you try? Let me know zown below!!

I wanted to also test out an extra step in my routine before I go out next weekend and wanted to see if it would be a good fit. I added color correcting into my routine, the discoloration around my mouth area & under eye would be really prominent I wanted to get make it look my base look more even. This extra step was well needed and made a HUGE difference. To color correct I used L.A. Girl - HD Pro Concealer In Red Corrector On my eyes I used NATASHA DENONA - Bronze Eyeshadow Palette in the shades Magna & Bliss & ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Jackie Aina Eyeshadow Palette in the shades Credit, Edges, Ginger, and Supreme. I also used Kokie - Waterproof Velvet Smooth Eyeliner Pencil in Coffee On my face I used e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer ,MAYBELLINE - Super Stay Full Coverage Foundation in Cappuccino. The concealer I used is MAYBELLINE - Instant Anti Age Eraser Concealer in shade Caramel To set by under eyes I used laura mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder in Honey under my eyes & Medium Deep all over the face To contour I used ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Powder Bronzer in Mahogany To blush the cheeks I used MAC - MAC Powder Blush in Beauty Mark & BLACK RADIANCE - ARTISAN COLOR BAKED BLUSH in Toasted Almond On the lips I used MAYBELLINE - Lifter Gloss With Hyaluronic Acid in 009

My Favorite Products Like EVER💄❤️👩🏾
We all have those products that come 👏🏾through 👏🏾every👏🏾TIME! and never fail us. Whether it’s that ONE nude gloss with the perfect amount of pink & gold reflect or that one foundation that NEVER breaks you out, makeup holy grails are inevitable! 2020 I feel like i’ve upgraded my love for makeup to a new level! Being home you really get to spend time and hone in on things that we never had the time to before. Makeup has always had my ❤️ but last year I was really able to deep dive into it. To be honest, I’m a creature of habit, I don’t necessarily like trying new products because I’ll literally try it once and probably like it but will forget to incorporate the product(s) into my routine. So instead of me raving about new products, I’ll rave about my HOLY GRAIL products that I know will work everytime! Last glue is an underrated holy grail item that EVERY Lash Wearing person should have in their kit or vanity. Everyone needs a lash glue that will WORK time & time again. I love my Esqido - Companion Eyelash Glue when I tell you it’s UP & it’s SUCK!! Then lashes not going no where and they are perfect for sensitive eyes for all my watery girls out there! And it’s inexpensive too. I got two hours for $20! I can be picky when it comes to my eye shadow palettes, I don’t like having too much of the same color stories with my palettes, but i’m also not a very colorful person when it comes to eye shadow as well. One of my all time favorites is the ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette It has the perfect amount of shimmers & mattes and is easily a day to night palette. But recently i’ve really been gravitating towards the NATASHA DENONA - Bronze Eyeshadow Palette this palette is a HOLY GRAIL palette, it’s the Soft Glam palette richer half sister that only comes to IMPORTANT family functions!!! The shimmers in this palette hit different and the mattes are buttery smooth!! She’s more expensive but WORTH IT! The concealers i’ve been using haven’t changed in over a year, I have TWO concealers I ❤️. One is the NARS - Soft Matte Complete Concealer its a fuller coverage concealer and dries down to a matte finish, It’s lovely and has many different colors and undertones. My next pick is the e.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer this concealer is THE BEST and is super full coverage. I pretty much use the two concealers together EVERYTIME i do my makeup. My elf concealer is a little more yellow so it’s perfect for highlighting, my NARS concealer I use more for evening the skintone. The laura mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder in Medium Deep has been used EVERY SINGLE TIME I do my makeup, if I don’t use it to set my foundation something feels missing!! These products have been used practically every makeup look & have become staples!

I Always Wanted To Do This Hair Flip!💁🏾♀️
i tried this style the other day and I was in LOVE, this is a upart wig I made with some hair i had from a previous wig. It was originally a 20in then i did a job cut and tapered the ends so it wasn’t so blunt. Then I used my REVLON - Salon Advanced Copper + Ceramic Curling Iron to flip the ends of my hair, then used a edge brush and some #TGIN - Smooth & Hold Edge Control[products]#[FiveStars] to lay my edges, i gave it 5 stars for now because I just got it. So far so good so It’s 5 stars for me. I did dye this hair blue black trying the dip dye method to try and match my hair since 1dyed mine blue black as well.

I love eye creams. It's a weird obsession 🖤 Details: 🖤 • Verso Super Eye Serum rejuvenates the delicate skin around your eyes for a more refreshed appearance. • Amino acids nourish and fortify to tone and reduce puffiness while smoothing the appearance of creping skin. • Powered by Retinol 8 complex, this eye serum features a potent dose of retinol to help firm and soften fine lines, wrinkles and crow's feet without the irritating effects of traditional retinol formulas. 🖤 BRIGHTENING ENERGIZING FIRMING NOURISHING REJUVENATING 🖤 Key Ingredient(s): Vitamin A, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E Peptides Dimethicone Amino Acids Antioxidants HOW TO USE: 🖤 Gently pat around the eye area morning and evening. 🖤 💭 Eye creams are life. This one is so hydrating yet so lightweight. The texture is very smooth. It absorbs nicely into your skin. I haven't experienced any irritation while using this. It helps with puffiness and gives my under eye area the moisture to last throughout the day. It's non sticky and non-greasy. There is a slightest of slight tingle but goes away literally after a few seconds. This one is definitely a keeper. . . Have you tried this serum yet?

This Saved My Rough Elbows!
So I used three products and this was my week difference this is KP (melanin version) FIRST AID BEAUTY - KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub with 10% AHA I was skeptical about this at first but combined with my cloth and lotion it really worked! It has 10% glycolic & lactic acid. ($28) ALPHA SKIN CARE - Revitalizing Body Lotion my very first post on Cherie was about this lotion! I use it on my entire body and have seen tremendous results! It’s 12% glycolic acid & leaves my skin moisturized and smooth! I use it everywhere ! Please use sunscreen the following day to avoid sun damage ! ($17.99) THE SALUX SHOP - Nylon Washcloths the original exfoliating clothes. (Also apart of my very first post). These are the Japanese award winning clothes that changed the way I shower forever. They’re exfoliating so if you have sensitive skin please take caution. I got them from amazon 2 for $10 ! I’ve had them for 6 months and they’re still like new. They said they’re self cleaning, but I’ve washed mines like three times since I had them! (DONT DRY THEM). I also use Dove - Sensitive Skin Beauty Bar before this treatment. Since I’m using many acids (which are perfectly fine to mix together) I want to make sure I’m not doing any other harsh damage to my skin. order Dove - Sensitive Skin Beauty Bar with THE SALUX SHOP - Nylon Washcloths FIRST AID BEAUTY - KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub with 10% AHA (use your hands it’s already rough enough) ALPHA SKIN CARE - Revitalizing Body Lotion (once out the shower) @AnishaB

BLACK GIRL SUNSCREEN IS BOMB
Finally got my hands on BLACK GIRL SUNSCREEN - Black Girl Sunscreen SPF 30 ! I am so EXCITED! As we know, some sunscreens really don’t work for us black girls so this sunscreen was formulated to dry completely clear and not leave the terrible white cast that some products have. The white cast is usually caused by zinc oxide found in mineral/physical sunscreens. BLACK GIRL SUNSCREEN - Black Girl Sunscreen SPF 30 on the other hand is a chemical sunscreen with avobenzone as the active ingredient which blocks both UVA and UVB rays by absorbing them. Sinks into the skin to do the job as opposed to sitting on top of the skin like mineral sunscreens. BGS is free of harmful chemicals like oxybenzone and octinoxate and full of nourishing ingredients like 🌞 avocado ☀️ jojoba 🌞 cacao ☀️ carrot juice 🌞 sunflower juice It’s also fragrance free! I tried it out a few weekends ago (when I went outside for the first time in weeks) and loved it! Tried it again today on a beach trip on both my face and body and it was a winner yet again! It’s a little on the thicker side so not sure how it’ll hold up under makeup but I’m makeup-free during quarantine so that’s not an issue right now! Love how luxe the packaging looks too! Also did I mention that its #BLACKOWNED 👊🏾
