Generation G Looks Pretty Ggggood 👄
I love lipstick, but as someone who is always sipping, snacking and chewing gum, it can be a struggle to keep it on. That’s why I was excited to try Glossier’s Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick. It’s supposed to look sheer and a bit, um worn (? I couldn’t think of a better descriptive word!). I chose the lipstick in the shade Zip, which is a pretty poppy red. I always love this sort of orangey red shade because it makes my eyes look crazy blue. The lipstick does what it says it will do. It provides a sheer wash of color that is buildable. I love the way it looks. It also wears off in a nice, not too noticeable way. I’m giving it four out of five stars only because it’s a little uncomfortable to wear. If you have dry lips it will not feel nice. Honestly, if half stars were possible, I’d give this 4.5, but all in all, I’m a fan! I’m probably going to buy another shade or two. Which do you recommend? Glossier. - Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick
Mwah!! XO My favorite lip glosses and lip stains
1. BURT’S BEES - Tinted Lip Oil My favorite everyday gloss! Hydrating. Natural looking. Comes in a pen with a brush applicator. I’m wearing Carmel Cloud here. 2. HONEST - Honest Beauty Tinted Lip Balm This one is also a good hydrating gloss. More of a sheer wash. Less glossy. Wearing Fruit Punch here. 3. Glossier. - Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick Probably my least favorite in terms of hydration. But I love the Kool Aid stain color it gives. Wearing Jam here. 5. YVES SAINT LAURENT - Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain Most color. Feels satiny on lips. 6. BUXOM - Pillowpout Creamy Plumping Lip Powder I seriously love this stuff. It gives me just a little more definition and the color is like natural lip color amped up! Wearing Dolly here.

Accentuate Facial with the right Contouring
Too cool for school - this brand is actually created in the U.S. I like their products cus its very affordable and the concept of product design is very adorable and convenience like this palette. too cool for school - Artclass by Rodin Makeup Set There are three colors here in this palette. I found this is the perfect palette for contouring my face. You kind of want to understand your face shape first before going to contouring. The whole concept of contouring is to “visually hide” your imperfections. With a highlighter, it works to enlarge your advantages and gather attention. Here are my techniques for Face Contouring (Round shape): I like to start with the darkest color where used to focus on key areas to contour underneath my cheek bones to get a defined look. I would also contour my jawline. For this time, I would take my brush and use the three colors together. With a large brush, I kind of swish these colors together, tap out the excess powder and start working on my jawlines to get that v-shape. Started with my chin first and then go up. Basically I am creating this shadow towards my ear and blend it out. I have round face, this way it helps me to get a more edge face shape and makes my face look slimmer. The next thing I like to do is to use the color in the middle for small areas on my temples. Since I have a round face shape, I normally put a lot contours around my face. The reason I heavily contour the size of my face is to get a natural elongated face. If you have elongated face, you might want to go the opposite way: lighter on the side but heavier on the forehead. I would also contour my nose use the color in the middle. I would put a little underneath my nose to kind of give it a lifted look and sides as well to get a slimmer nose bridge (mine is kind of wide). Then next is to take a brush to blend everything out till it is nice and flawless to finish it up.

Colour Correcting like a Professional
When we see color correcting, it’s usually pictures of light to medium skin shade with some acne or dark circles. I find it rare to see people posting or giving advice for women of color, let alone that not all makeup brands have a full shade range… The whole point of color correcting is to neutralize skin imperfections. It all comes down to a color theory; if you mix two opposites colors, they make brown. So, for example, green neutralizes red/pink, purple neutralizes yellow. Dark skin usually comes with dark circles and hyperpigmentation with a Blue/ Violet undertone; for this, you need to use a red color corrector. Some of my favorite red color correctors at the moment are Charlotte Tilbury Magic Vanish Color CorrectorCharlotte Tilbury - Magic Vanish Color Corrector, SEPHORA COLLECTION - Bright Future Color CorrectorsSephora Collection Bright Future Color Correctors, and #Temptu - Color Corrector Palette[products]#[FiveStars]Temptu Color Corrector Palette. I particularly like Temptu. Five shades to perfect and even out all skin types and tones. Temptu uses a silicone-based formula that corrects all types of discolorations for a balanced complexion. This brand has been around for 35 years, and they specialize in airbrush makeup made initially for makeup artists and beauty professionals and their clients, now available to everyone.

How to bring out your eyes while wearing a mask
#cheriepartner How to bring out your eyes and make them fun while wearing a mask. I also love to shape my eyes like a butterfly wing shape and I love it , it really brings out the eyes and the shape of them... making your eyes big and bright. I shape them with my liquid eyeliner. We all have to continue to stay safe and wear our mask but who says wearing a mask has to be boring ? I know it can be difficult to wear a mask with makeup bc it can cause break outs and our makeup can come off and appear on our mask. But with this look I decided to something different once and while and not always wear foundation, While not wearing foundation or lipstick and bronzer I wanted to add some pop of color to my eyes with some liner, I also put on some e.l.f. - Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter to cover my tired eyes or dark spots and I contoured a little by my eyebrows . And it gives a nice touch.

Got Dark Circles?Color correct with Red Lipstick
Let's face it; dark circles are inevitable. Yes, you can get rid of them, but until then, you can do this simple hack to make sure they aren't peaking through your makeup. For newbies, color correcting can be a little intimidating, but don't worry; you will get the hang of it. On a fresh face, take a simple red or orange lipstick, and with your finger start dabbing it onto your under eyes, a little goes a long way, so try not to overdo it. To make sure that you cover your entire under-eye area, draw a large upside-down triangle. This should reach from the corner of your inner eye to the bottom of your nose to about an inch past the outer corner of your eye. Blend it as much as you can until it's just a tint of red or orange. Now you can move onto either applying your concealer or go straight to the foundation. I don't use concealer so I just put foundation on top. If you feel like you can still see the red or orange then apply a concealer to mask the color and use a little less red next time. Don't forget to set it with some translucent powder! This will help keep everything in place throughout the day. Fun Fact: The reason this helps correct dark circles is because there are tints of blue and green in dark circles. In color theory, the color that is opposite of it (red and orange) will neutralize the color (this also applies when you're toning blonde hair which is why you use purple shampoo to get rid of yellow) I love to use MILANI - Color Statement Matte Lipstick in 07 Best Red because it gives a little bit of a sticky surface, which means your makeup isn't going ANYWHERE. Also, if you are looking for a cheap drug store brand lipstick, this is the best, especially for a red because it doesn't bleed! And it feels comfortable and smooth on your lips 💋

get bigger looking eyes with these tricks!👁✨
hello everyone! i thought i would share the best ways to open your eyes and make them look bigger- for all eye shapes! follow these steps to draw attention to your eyes✨👁 1. avoid harsh, black eyeliner on the lid (unless you have dark skin)! if you have pale-medium skin, dont use black eyeliner! try to use a taupy brown for an everyday eye look. it closes the eye and castes a shadow, and if you have hooded eyes, it makes your lid area look even smaller which then makes your eyes appear smaller as well. a soft brown can makes your eyelashes appear thicker, and also makes makeup look more natural if thats what you are going for. i do use black eyeliner myself for style, but it does make my eyes look smaller. also, using different color eyeliners can help complement your eye colour❤️ 2. use white, NOT BLACK, in the water line! white eyeliner in the water line gives the illusion that the actual eyeballs are bigger. it can make you look much more awake and your eyes look very round! in this photo i am wearing MAYBELLINE - TattooStudio Eyeliner Pencil make sure its water proof! 3. dont use super thick, black false lashes! i dont wear fake lashes, but i do know that wearing really big and dark false lashes make your eyes look smaller and also hides any eyeshadow youre wearing! they look tacky in my opinion for every day wear, but they also dont do anything to open your eyes. opt for long, more natural looking false lashes that have space in between them and arent so heavy. 4. curl your lashes! i have naturally long lashes that are naturally very curled, but for those of you that dont, check out my my hack on my page for curling lashes using heat to make them stay all day✨🦋 5. use eyelid tape! this is of course optional, but it does really help a lot of people, especially people with mono lids. it makes your lids appear bigger, which makes your eyes look bigger, and creates more room for beautiful eyeshadow👁 6. try halo eyes! halo eyes can make your eyes appear rounder if thats the look your going for. basically, you put lighter shadows on the middle of your eyelid, and darker shades around it. 7. keep the face and lip makeup simple!👄 this wont nessecarily make your eyes look bigger, but it will draw more attention to them👀 8. keep the makeup in your crease darker, and the makeup below your crease lighter. this is just a very basic makeup style that creates bigger eyes! lemme know if these work for you💖✨

so i tinted my brows at home...
at my local target, the beauty section is directly next to the self-checkout line. thus, for the last 2 weeks one product has been calling my name... the ARDELL - ARDELL Brow Tint i’m very protective over my eyebrows, so this kind of product is NOT something i’d usually go for. but since i’ve been stuck at home lately anyway, i figured i’d give it a shot! the tint is really just a gentle hair color from what i can tell. it comes with a powdered color in a small, glass bottle and a developer in a tube. when i first mixed it up and the provided container, i was confused because the color was much lighter than i expected. as for the spoolie you’re meant to use as an applicator, it was definitely way too big. this is why i only gave this product 4 stars instead of 5. if the applicator had been smaller so i could get more crisp lines, i think it would’ve been an easy 5/5! when i rinsed the product off, i was left with nicely tinted brows! while it looks a little sloppy, i’m interested to see if the dye will wash off my skin or if i’ll be stuck like this for 2 weeks! stay tuned for updates...

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
