My Not-So-Ordinary The Ordinary Skin Journey
i'm fairly new to the skincare community since the whole pandemic started. i started watching these popular skincare junkies on youtube like cassandra bankson, hyram, james welsh, and liah yoo to name a few. it only took me a couple of videos to realize that my whole skincare routine is trash 🗑 my whole life. and i am a clown 🤡 for not reading the ingredients on the shit that i purchase. (ain't nobody got time for that) most of us are only deceived by what's on the front labels that we don't turn and learn the products that we use daily. i'm thankful for these youtubers who share their knowledge and honest reviews about different skincare products. tbh, they made our lives easier. i have a combination skin. my t-zone is oily and my cheeks are dry. i get breakouts often in my chin area, i hate my blackheads and sebaceous filaments. i tend to squeeze them quite often which made my pores bigger. (eeww 🤮) never again though! i'm the kind of person who would try different kinds of brands and if i don't see any difference in a week or two, i jump onto the next one. 🤡 here is my old routine: ￼• for cleansing, i use the neutrogena oil-free acne face wash daily scrub (it smells like acetone. i don't even know why i put up with that! 🤮) i don't recommend at all! i broke up with this product. ￼• i use this sponsored product from arrenbio. (it's a korean skincare brand) it's a toner that has an algae extract that's from the active volcanoes of napoli, italy. i was impressed with the ingredient list but the downside was the fragrance. it was kinda strong. i actually liked it bc my skin absorbed it right away. ￼• after applying toner, i use a collagen moisturizer from esfolio (korean brand) during the day. and THAT'S IT! i don't even apply sunscreen because i breakout! 😭 + i hate the white cast! ￼and during the night the same routine during the day except for using esfolio, i use pixi retinol overnight oil instead and i love it. my skin looks glowing the next morning and it is well-hydrated! ✨👁👄👁✨ ￼• for exfoliation i use ST. IVES SMOOTH OATMEAL SCRUB & MASK. ngl, i actually liked this product. (i use it as my foot scrub now though 👣) i just felt that after exfoliating with this product my skin felt nice and clean 🤣 - after watching several reviews and videos about the ordinary, i've decided to be loyal to their products. ✨👁👄👁✨ VS my current routine: ￼squalene cleanser (am & pm) i love it. it's gentle but my skin feels clean and supple soft after 😍 ￼glycolic toner (pm) i really think this one helped me minimize my pores 😭 i swear. 💕 ￼niacinamide + zinc (am & pm) it reduces redness around my nose area. or when i breakout this helps me a lot. ￼lactic acid ￼aha + bha solution (once a week only) ￼granactive retinoid in squalene (pm) anti aging solution. ￼moisturizing factors + HA (after all the serums) ￼the BUFFET is my holy grail! ✨👁👄👁✨ it gives me that glowing, dewy, well-hydrated skin look. 🥰 ￼purito spf unscented (the BEST ever!)
THE BEST MINIMAL FOUNDATION FOR BROWN SKIN
I never thought a $7 foundation would be my holy grail foundation. I have been working on my perfect skin care routine for YEARS and at this point, I can’t bring myself to put on a full coverage foundation. I prefer how my natural skin looks and needed a foundation to even out my skin without making it look even more textured than it is. My makeup “style” or preference is light, breathable and my skin but better. I don’t do full glam, I don’t beat my face for the God’s simply because it doesn’t suit my skin or my style. I have pink/warm undertones and a lighter medium complexion with oily/combination skin, lemme tell you finding a foundation that isn’t either light af or too dark and orange was a struggle. This foundation is amazing because it has a really light feel and blends into the skin beautifully without looking cakey and most importantly it MATCHES MY SKIN TONE (2.1P). Sheer foundations will forever be my favourite because of the fact that your skin will still show through but is accompanied by a beautiful even skin tone and glow. I add a bit of sunscreen to my foundation to make it even more sheer and “tinted moisturizer” like with SPF protection. It can look a bit oily on its own but if you are topping it off with a finishing powder or mattifying setting spray it looks 💯 If you’re looking for a light feeling foundation with sheer/light coverage that is alcohol free, oil free, vegan, cruelty free and nut and gluten free, a variety of shade ranges to compliment different undertones, THIS IS THE ONE SIS.

3 steps for a perfect base!
these are the three products I use if I want a super flawless face of make up. this is not what I use instead of skin care but rather, in addition to. I always start my make up by making sure I’m wearing SPF. what I love about these three steps is they’re a perfect starting point—you can either add products if you want to glam it up, or keep it like this for a simple, fresh face look. tarte - Shape Tape Concealer I like to start my base my concealing. a high coverage concealer like this one covers most of my imperfections, which in turn causes me to use less foundation than I would if I started with foundation first! I like to apply it under my eyes, around my nose, and a bit by my mouth, the areas where I have discoloration. L'ORÉAL - Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation this is my favorite foundation, it’s pretty good coverage but doesn’t look or feel cakey at all! I use 1 pump & usually just dot a few spots of this with my beauty blender. ILIA - Color Haze Multi-Use Pigment I love this pigment because it’s super natural looking and just a few specks add a beautiful effect to the skin. I use it on the tops of my cheekbones and along my nose to mimick where the sun would kiss my skin. I blend this in with my finger tips and rub any excess on my eye lids. that’s it! this super simple routine really helps me feel a little more comfortable in my skin, and looks ultra natural. #cheriepartner

FENTY FACE - hydrating foundation
Just going to start with a big 5 stars for this foundation! SUCH an improvement to the OG matte foundation ( see my honest review on that foundation in my posts ) FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt'r Hydrating Longwear Foundation A beautiful medium coverage foundation that wears well and looks very natural and hydrating. Doesn’t look dewy, just like healthy skin. + great coverage; medium buildable + doesn’t oxidize (in my experience) + applies great with brush + natural hydrated healthy glow - not so much dewy. + smells so good ( love the fenty smell ) + great packaging; pump tube + little goes a long way + long lasting + not tacky, very comfortable to wear ++ just straight up gorgeous on the skin! If you read my review on the OG fenty foundation you will see I was not big on it at all, but this hydrating foundation has won me over. Absolutely beautiful. I bought this during a sale and was like *bleep* it whatever 🤷🏻♀️ turns out it’s one of my favorite foundations ever! Def worth a sample or mini makeup at Sephora to try it.

Natural makeup today using all Fenty Beauty Products today! ￼🦋 Primer:FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer Super lightweight and leaves my skin feeling super smooth and prepped for my makeup ￼🦋 Foundation: FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation This foundation makes my skin look super smooth and even, it completely covers my hyper pigmentation without being super heavy and drying. And it’s my perfect match i am shade 235. ￼🦋 Concealer: FENTY BEAUTY - Match Stix Matte Skinstick I absolutely love the formula of this, it’s buttery soft and creamy and dries down to a nice matte finish. I use the shade Vanilla and it’s a great concealer shade ￼🦋 Contour & Blush: FENTY BEAUTY - Match Stix Matte Skinstick Same as review above, I use Shade Suede for contour and Shade Beach Bum for blush! ￼🦋 Setting Powder: FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Setting Powder I like this powder, it sets my makeup very nice and make sure it stays in place all day, It also smells amazing, However sometimes it does make my pores look more visible than usual, this usually happens when I bake with this powder rather than just swiping some product on. 🦋 Mascara: FENTY BEAUTY - Full Frontal Volume, Lift & Curl Mascara This mascara didn’t do much for me, It’s nice but I don’t think it is worth the price, there are much cheaper alternatives that work just as well or even better! 🦋Gloss:FENTY BEAUTY - Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer OMG! My all time favorite gloss, This is my 3rd bottle. Unlike other glosses you have to keep reapplying every 5 minutes this one STAYS on your lips, it’s very hydrating and of course smells sooo good. I’m using the Shade Fenty Glow, and I swear this looks good on every single skin tone. If you haven’t tried this I highly recommend you do! ✨ Lashes by KISS In style #11 cut in half & glued onto the bottom of my lashes instead of top. ** I don’t have any fenty brow products so I am using Colourpops brow pomade. Thank you for reading this 🥰
