I’m usually not one to use a highlighter but I got this in my BoxyCharm box & thought I would share it with you guys! For me, it’s a bit too tan, & I feel like it looks too uneven on my skin color. However, I can’t deny it is a beautiful highlighter! I swatched it to show you guys that amazing ✨GLOW✨ it gives off!! ICONIC - Sheer Blush & Illuminator

Eyeliner Brush - worth it??
Eyeliner brushes can be one of the trickiest things to use when applying eye makeup. Most of us go with the provided or attached brush. To get your preferred line or shape, different eyeliner brushes come to the rescue. 🗣 Here are my tips - Simple eye defining line: eyeliner brush flat tip brush and angled bent eyeliner brush Cat eye liner: dome shaped semi flat brush, angled tip brush and angled bent eyeliner brush Winged eyeliner: angled tip brush and angled bent eyeliner brush 👁👁 I use an eyeliner brush for various reasons and the main one is to help draw a fine, chain free line. With a brush, it helps to pick up the right amount of the product and avoid wastage. A brush also avoids contamination of eyeliners that come with a brush inserted at the top of the tube. The eyeliner look that I usually have is a typical straight, close to the lash line one. And I usually use a flat tip brush to achieve this neat line look. The brush that I am using now is the flat brush from EcoTools Start the Day Beautifully Kit. With a lightweight bamboo handle and soft bristles that are made of polyester, the brush picks up the right amoun of gel liner each time and glides across the sensitive skin on my eyes easily without pricking my lashes and waterline. It is an affordable option for anyone who would like to experiment with a gel liner and brush look. A thick brush will create thick, dark lines while a thin, angled brush will give you more control and allow you to draw finer lines. This brush is of the right density for an everyday look. To draw the liner with the brush, dip the brush bristles in the pot of gel liner and wipe them on the sides to remove excess eyeliner. Start with less rather than more as you can build on the line later on. Using too much eyeliner at once can lead to smearing. To apply a basic line, close the eye you are going to apply eyeliner to gently. Begin about 1/4 of the way out from your inside corner on your top lid. Use the tip of the brush to gently and smoothly follow the lash line and trace the natural curve of your eye with the eyeliner, keeping as close to the lash line as possible. I also like to use this brush to draw a line of shadow on the lower line for a smoky eye look. To do that, I wipe the brush with a clean wet cloth and dab the brush a dark mauve or brown eyeshadow. I then tap the brush on my hand and go around my lower waterline for a soft ring of dark color.

I feel like every millennial grew up watching Spongebob so it brought back really fond memories when Juno and Co did a collaboration with them! Like I can’t be the only one who goes through life daily quoting lines from the show. The JUNO & Co. - JUNO & Co. x SpongeBob Bikini Bottom Bundle retails for $24 and you get one Spongebob microfiber sponge, one Patrick microfiber sponge, one pair of Gary mini microfiber sponges, and one bikini bottom sponge cleanser. Unlike your typical sponge the Juno and Co sponges have a layer of microfiber material that they claim allows the product to sit on top of so the sponge doesn’t absorb it. They claim this gives you a airbrushed like finish. I’ve used Juno and Co sponges in the past and really liked them. I mainly bought this bundle for the mini Gary sponges as I have a hard time getting into the tear duct area of my eye with concealer (and I can’t find the mini beauty blenders anymore). That being said I’m severely disappointed with them. They were very hard dry and I had hoped once wet they would soften but they don’t. It’s unfortunate because they PERFECTLY get under neath the eye. It’s the perfect shape. But it’s so hard it’s uncomfortable to use and doesn’t blend out concealer. I ended up going in with the big sponge. The Spongebob sponge is shaped like the original Juno and Co sponge which the Patrick is shaped like a Beautyblender. They weren’t as soft as your typical sponge dry but they weren’t hard either. I used the Spongebob one and it definitely softened up a lot when wet. The only downside is the sponge does dry out really quickly and I noticed when it was more on the dry side it took longer to blend in my foundation than my Real Techniques I usually use. It did blend out nice eventually but it took more work to get the desired result. It almost seemed like it bunched up at first which scared me and then blended out. I added a video for size comparison of what the sponges look dry and then wet. Overall I just didn’t enjoy using it. I’ve had two Juno and Co sponges in the past and I don’t remember the microfiber feeling this weird on the face. I just didn’t enjoy the application process. Personally, as cute as this collection is, I don’t find it worth it. If I bought this in store I would return it. Real Techniques is so much cheaper, applied foundation better, and does its job faster. Did anyone else pick this up? What were your thoughts? #CheriePartner
