2021 Fashion Week Inspired Makeup - Hermès
This look is inspired by models for Hermes for 2021 spring/summer fashion week. This look focuses on super dewy skin and a bold, red lip as the center of attention. This look was really easy to recreate and something I would actually rock IRL (except for the lack of mascara because mascara is bae). I’ve included the inspo photo from Allure. To add a glowy base to my complexion, I used Glossier. - Futuredew Oil Serum Hybrid . I only ever use 1 pump of this oil-serum hybrid because I think any more makes me look like a grease ball. I applied this all over my face and dabbed a tiny amount onto my eyelids. This product is perfect for applying on bare skin, under makeup, and can even be used over makeup for a natural, wet-looking highlight. After I applied my complexion products, I dabbed a tiny amount onto the high points of my cheekbones. Sticking with the dewy theme, I used the ILIA - Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 in “balos”. I’m not sure if the models were wearing complexion products because their skin looked super natural, yet also “flawless”. Since I have some redness on my cheeks, I used this skin tint to even out my skin tone and amp up the dew. I lightly concealed underneath my eyes with the e.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer in “light peach”. The models don’t appear to be wearing any cheek products, though I did add a tiny bit of AOA studio - Sculpt FX Contour in “fawn” to help sculpt my cheeks a tiny bit like the models. I finished the look off with the SEPHORA COLLECTION - Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick in “always red”. I’ve had a mini of this for quite a while. It’s beautiful, comfortable despite being matte, does leave a tint behind, and is long-wearing. This is the kind of lipstick that would last from the runway well into the after party (in non-COVID times, of course). The models don’t appear to be wearing any mascara, so I skipped that. I filled in my brows a bit more than usual for a fuller appearance. I used the essence - Superlast Eyebrow Pomade Pencil in “dark brown”. Such a fun look! You guys it’s sooo hard not to smile. How do models do it?! 🤪 Look for another fashion week look soon. All brands are cruelty-free except for Sephora Collection. Prices: futuredew $24, skin tint $46, concealer $6, contour stick $1, lip stain (full size) $15, brow pencil $3.50 #Cherie Partner
Zoom Meeting Look!
As one of the only women in a lot of my workplace meetings, I always want to make sure I look very presentable and professional (from the waist up 🤣) in addition to having my materials prepared. It’s just something that helps me feel like I’m 100% on my game! This is a similar look I would do for if and when work is ever normal and I had an important meeting as well. Your appearance is the way you present yourself to the world, and doing my makeup nicely is the way I like to be presented, though it is by no means necessary to be a professional woman! Makeup is just my way to be creative with my appearance. It’s fun! tarte - Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush BECCA - Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter Too Faced - White Peach Eye Shadow Palette SEPHORA COLLECTION - Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner NARS - Climax Mascara SEPHORA COLLECTION - Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick tarte - Sea H2O Lip Gloss
Best tinted sunscreen/mosturizer for oily skin
These two is all I have on my skin! And just lashes from KISS - Looks so Natural Lash mines called Flirty, and lipstick from MAYBELLINE - SuperStay Ink Crayon Lipstick mines in shade Change is good #85 If you have dry skin you can apply something dewy under these! But, These together are incredible. The Australian Gold - Botanical Tinted Face Sunscreen SPF 50 literally makes my skin look so smooth and blurred in person. And it’s matte! I own the original one, it’s the best in my opinion but does come in different shades The SEPHORA COLLECTION - Matte Perfection Tinted Moisturizer also is matte and I mix the two and it gives me a flawless finish and gives me the correct color. This can be light to medium coverage Sometimes I’ll add powder over these using the SEPHORA COLLECTION - MicroSmooth Baked Foundation Face Powder which also makes my skin look smooth and blurred 😍
My maybelline collection 🎶
I love maybelline, I love how affordable they are and how long their products usually last. you can find them at almost every supermarket and drugstore, I’ve found that their products are usually life savers...well most of the time. The worst maybelline products that I’ve tried ⬇️ - maybelline cheek heat blush - I was really excited for this prouduct, but I found that it was liquidy, streaky, and barely had any pigment. I used almost a quarter of the bottle and I still couldn’t see any color. You have to wait for it to dry down too so it’s annoying to put on. As much as I wanted to like this product, I couldn’t 💔 MAYBELLINE - Cheek Heat Gel-Cream Blush - maybelline superstay remover. What’s even the point of this? A makeup wipe can get it off just as easy. I found that it actually got it on more places when I was smearing it around. Any normal makeup remover would do the same thing. Not to mention it tastes terrible and it used a lot of the stick just to remove a small amount of superstay lipstick. MAYBELLINE - SuperStay Eraser Lip Color Remover Remover Maybelline 24 hour lip color - I didn’t see any pigment in this. it basically just made my lips ridiculously dried out and nothing else. 💋 MAYBELLINE - Super Stay 24 Hour Lip Color - maybelline Great lash waterproof, not the worst product ever but The waterproof formula wasn’t very good and it still came off and was smeary. I think great lash can be used subtly, but anything else ends up looking super clumpy. 🎶 MAYBELLINE - Great Lash Waterproof Mascara Now with my favorites, and the mehhhhs. I had all of this written out but I accidentally deleted it, so sorry if this sounds rushed. - Maybelline super stay. (There’s a full review of this on my profile) this is my favorite makeup product of all time for sure. MAYBELLINE - SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick - maybelline superstar full coverage powder foundation, This isn’t as full coverage as a liquid foundation, but I still love it because I can’t stand wearing liquid foundation. My only complaint is that it seems to run out quickly. MAYBELLINE - SuperStay Full Coverage Powder Foundation And here are the products that I felt like were what you’d expect, nothing really stood out about them. - MAYBELLINE - Master Fix Setting + Perfecting Loose Powder - MAYBELLINE - SuperStay Ink Crayon Lipstick ( doesn’t last as long as the liquid lipstick, but it’s still very long lasting and pigmented) - MAYBELLINE - Fit Me Blush - MAYBELLINE - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer
My secret to get bouncy & satin-like lip
What is satin lip look? It is a trend that is quite popular in recent years. Overall, it means your lips have a look that its texture is similar to that of satin: matte, creamy but still has this softness and subtle glow in it. I am personally into this kind of lip look. It is low-key but it still helps you to get a smooth and highly-pigmented look for you lips. What do I use to get such a look? Lip Care Rosy Lips from Vaseline Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick from Sephora Collection in the shade 01 Always Red What are the steps to get a satin lip look? The most important thing is to get your lips properly moisturized and here’s where the lip care product from Vaseline comes into play. I would apply a thick layer of this lip balm before sleep and the next day use a cotton to help get the all the dead skins off my lip and you would get the softest, pinkest lips you’ve ever had. After that, your lips are really ready to have any kind of lip look. And here, of course, my choice is the satin lip look and I want to recommend this lip stain from Sephora Collection to everybody! The brush of this lipstick is easy to use and you won’t need a lip liner to get an exact lip look. My thoughts on these two products: I love how these two products are all very affordable and effective at creating wonderful lip looks. This Vaseline lip care costs only about $6 and the liquid lipstick is sold at the website of Sephora and it is sold at $15. They are truly worth products. The lipstick doesn’t transfer or smudge. And it could last all day long. It’s almost dries like a lip stain but it doesn’t feel dry when applying. I recommend this combo to you and if you’ve got similar lipsticks, I would also like to learn from your comments!

Lip Gloss as Blush 😍
All of us want to know the useful make-up tricks to illuminate our face in an instant with minimal effort. Here’s a trick - after your regular application of lipstick, lip gloss, or both, simply dab the excess product onto the cheeks and blend! One of my favorite lip gloss is the best-selling Armani Beauty Lip Maestro liquid lipstick in shade 400. ARMANI beauty - Lip Maestro Liquid Matte Lipstick The non-drying liquid lipstick is heavily pigmented and infuses my lips with an intense deep red color while providing a velvet matte finish with lasting hydration and comfort. After using a clean finger to go around my lips after application, I usually dab the excess color on my finger lightly and in tapping motions on my cheeks for a fresh face glow. This turns the lip color as a cream or liquid blush! Less is more, especially with rich lip pigments. Go with a little at any one time. Using a deep red color may seem daunting at first, try a pink or peachy coloured lip gloss for a more natural effect.ARMANI beauty - Lip Maestro Liquid Matte Lipstick

Satin lip look! My fav two✨✨✨
Unlike Shine or Sheer, Satin texture has a high need for a hydrated lip. Try to moisturize your lips before starting a satin Lip finish is necessary. If it's dry or chapped, try not to start it. I wear lip balm every night before I go to bed, so my lips are always moisturized! Yay! 1. Cle de peau 306 I’m in love with this special shade between dark red and purple. The texture is so creamy and leaves my lips very hydrated. It gives you a satin gorgeous finish, which is especially suitable to winter. Apply one time and many times can present a totally different style. So whatever for school day or free time, I am always a huge fan of this 306 color. 2. MAC BAROQUE THE INTERNET This satin lipstick I use most of tim Its packing is unique and totally different from other MAC lipstics. It has transpatent tube with back logo. But the color is same as previous collection. The scent smells like wood and makes me feel so relax. Color is nude pink. Although the texture seems like matte, it goes so easily and really soft on my lips. After using it, I will apply lip balm to create a hydrated effect. clé de peau BEAUTÉ - CLÉ DE PEAU BEAUTÉ Lipstick

Nude Lip Colors for Light East Asian Skintone 🤔
I’m not a big fan of nude lipsticks because my facial features are rather light and flat, and because of my personal style, I always prefer more “noticeable” and “saturated” lip colors to give more structure to my face. Plus, not many nude lipsticks work for light East Asian skin tones: a lot of them can look very ashy and turn us into zombies or vampires in one swipe. 😂 But nude/natural shades are useful, especially when I do a more colorful eye look and don’t want to overwhelm my face. So here are 2 lipsticks I use as nude/natural lip colors. ￼￼COLOURPOP - Ultra Satin Lip in Screenshot. This is an organe toned liquid lipstick with a satin/demi matte finish. I’m not so good with liquid lipsticks, so for me the applicator sometimes grabs too much product and can make a mess on my lips. And like all liquid lipsticks, it can be a bit drying and can emphasize the lines on my lips (or grab onto any flaky, chapped part). It works better with a lip primer. ￼￼MAYBELLINE - Color Sensational Made For All Lipstick in 373 Mauve for Me. A pink toned lipstick with the classic finish, not too shiny and not matte. I like that it is so easy to use and is very similar to my natural lip color (on a good day, my lips can be gray sometimes...). It can also double as a blush and create a very consistent, healthy look.

Discovered one more use of my lipstick 💄
Have you ever used up a whole lipstick? I have consumed all the product of only one lipstick. But due to a coincidence, I found this another way of using lipsticks: applying it on the cheeks as blush. Of course I have heard about this method before and have seen it on some influencers’ videos when they are pursuing a natural finish of their makeup look. There was a time when cream blush was a big trend. But at that time, I only owned several powder blushes and I would also like to try out how cream blush works and its effect. So I thought: why not use lipsticks as a try since they are also in the creamy texture? · What I used: Cockney from MAC in its series “lustre”. Actually I think any lipstick could be used as blush as long as it satisfies the following requirements: ■ It is not too sticky that it won’t be unable to blend or destroy your base foundation ■ It does not dry out too quickly which makes it difficult, if not impossible, to blend out before it dries out and there are patches of different shades left on the cheeks · How to use: just tap a few times on the cheek and use your finger or the beauty blender to blend it out and make sure it gracefully melts into your base. · My review on this method of multi-using a lipstick: ■ PROS: 1. It has a high cost-performance ratio 2. You will have a cheek and lip makeup that are in tune with each other ■ CONS: 1. It’s hard sometimes to find out the ideal lipstick that could be used in this way 2. It won’t work so great as a professional blush cream 3. It may take a bit more time to blend it out Anyways, there is no damage to try this method out. You could also try it out and maybe you will also find that there is one lipstick in your makeup collection that is multi-use.
How did I live without coral lipstick!👄
L'ORÉAL - Paris Limited Edition Stardust Lipstick I'm so surprised by this lipstick cause I never ever bought a lipstick online. Even if you try on lipsticks at expensive department stores, you still have to go outdoors to see what it looks like cause the lighting is oddly terrible. I used to only buy expensive cosmetics and life changed. I had tried this brand before from a sample and I used the whole tube. That means I liked it. So when searching for a pretty corally pink lipstick, I thought, hey, I'll look online for one in this brand. I found awesome reviews like crazy on this Tropic Coral and the price was great.so what the heck. I didn't really have high hopes cause even the computers don't show all the colors accurately. OMG! I looooove this lipstick. I haven't felt so pretty in years. Super great for spring and summer. I love this L'Oreal lipstick because it stays moist on the lips most of the day, only having to reapply after meals. I've read some complaints from other reviewers about the Tropic Cora not having much of a tint to it, but that's exactly why I love it! I like the nude look on my lips, and this gives just a hint of shading along with a sexy sheen. I've found this brand works so much better than lipgloss for chapstick or keeping my dry chapped lips moisturized for longer periods of time.It was exactly what I expected . . . a light shimmering peach shade. Smooth application, no noticeable odor/flavor and a snap tight case.
