having glamourous fun with the neutrals 🤍
getting back into makeup is such a joy for me. I missed it! Doing a neutral glam to get back into the groove and I really loved it . tourlou 🪐 Face: NARS - Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation (really loving it,looks natural I have the shade Gobi) FENTY BEAUTY - Match Stix Matte Skinstick (in shade amber ,practical for contour and just looking less unidimensional) e.l.f. - 16HR Camo Concealer (sooo good ,full coverage, used under the eyes and on the center of the face,the nose and the chin in shade light sand) Glossier. - Wowder Weightless Finishing Powder (really good ,all over the face in shade G11) MAYBELLINE - Fit Me Matte + Poreless Powder (used under the eye and for brightening the center of the face ,I use the shade transparent but is honestly just really really light) RIMMEL - Stay Matte Pressed Powder (Excellent to finish the makeup and smooth things over ,also in shade transparent) LUNAR BEAUTY - Moon Prism Blush Palette (my favorite,I can use all the shades and they are so beautiful ) BECCA - Sunlit Bronzer (I love it but it's really shimmery but great for looking like you have seen the sun) Eyes benefit - Goof Proof Brow Deal (It's so good and the shade 4 is perfect for me ) COLOURPOP - Stone Cold Fox Shadow Palette (really awesome neutral palette and a really good deal honestly get thissss) COLOURPOP - BFF Mascara (in the shade brownie points,I love it ,I tried the burgundy one too and it was so so dry so I don't recommend that one or maybe I got a bad one ) PÜR - On Point Eyeliner (on the waterline and a little on the outer corner ,in the shade down the earth ) Lips FENTY BEAUTY - Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color (in shade unbutton ,so comfortable ) LUNAR BEAUTY - Moon Lip Gloss (I LOVE THIS)
Concealer showdown ELF vs Shape Tape
Yeah so I’m just not every going to be a card carrying member of the tarte - Shape Tape Concealerfan club. At least not until they come out with a formula that is less drying/for mature skin. I have a ton of fun creases below my eyes. Like lots. And I’ve tried every way I could think of to get the Shape Tape concealer not to settle and accentuate those creases but nope. Primer first, mix with moisturizer, before foundation, after foundation, with setting powder, without setting powder. It always looks like my under eyes are cracking within an hour. The e.l.f. - 16HR Camo Concealer has a similarly thick formula, a similar applicator, the same creamy texture in the tube, but it doesn’t leave me with crinkle eyes! And it’s cheap! What’s your go-to concealer for fine under eye lines?
Faye Wang Sunburn Glam Makeup
Fun, Easy, and Semi Work + School Appropriate Halloween Makeup to Do at Home #2 Faye Wang had this iconic sunburn and edgy look on the cover of her 1998 album. I’m giving it a try and it looks surprisingly cute?! But of course I toned it down because well, still have class today lol. The star of this look is of course, the blush. Basically you apply blush from center of the nose bridge out to your temples, creating a sunburn effect. I brought some blush and bronzer all the way up to my forehead and on my entire eyelids. I also dabbed a bit of a subtle liquid highlighter in my cheeks and nose bridge. For eyes I just kept things simple. Strong, dark brows like Faye Wang did to give definition to the face. I used a dark brown shadow along my upper lash line and my outer corners, then a black eyeliner to deepen the lash line. I used a golden shimmer shade along my lower lash line. No mascara. For lips, I used a nude/neutral shade suitable for my skin tone and dabbed a bit of gloss on top.

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.

Drugstore dupe for my favourite foundation!
Dupe Alert...❗️❗️ The Maybelline Dream Urban Cover foundation has some striking similarities to one of my favourite foundations the @itcosmetics your skin but better CC + illumination. Even the packaging has a very similar resemblance. After trying out the Maybelline Dream Urban Cover for a couple of weeks I can say that this drugstore foundation is definitely a great dupe for the It cosmetics your skin but better CC. Both of their consistencies are pretty much the same and they both have an SPF of 50 which is great for protecting your skin during the summer months. This foundation claims to have antioxidants that benefit your skin by protecting it from certain environmental stressors. Like the it cosmetics foundation it provides great coverage and also includes skin benefits. MAYBELLINE - Dream Urban Cover Foundation SPF 50 What I love about the Dream Urban Cover is that it doesn’t have a scent to it like the IT cosmetics one does it’s also a fraction of the cost of the IT cosmetics CC. The Maybelline foundation retails for 9.96 Canadian at Walmart and the IT cosmetics foundation retails for 52 Canadian which is quite the price difference for a very similar product. I’ve gotten a similar wear out of both these foundations and if you want my advice I would save your money on the IT cosmetics one and go for the drugstore option instead, your wallet will be thanking you later. Also the Maybelline foundation has a larger shade range of 21 shades and the IT cosmetics one has only 12 shades to choose from. Have you tried this foundation yet? Will you be ditching the IT cosmetics one for this cheaper option? 😘🌼☀️
Pigment for DAYS!! (A Mini Review)
NARS - Soft Essentials Single Eyeshadow in the color Outreamer is one of my favorite blue eyeshadow. I got it from Blue Mercury because I was looking for something to match my dress for my anniversary. I used URBAN DECAY - Eyeshadow Primer Potionto make sure that the color popped and it did! It was amazing and came out looking superb!!! Then why did I give it 4 stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ instead of 5? After a few days of having it, IT BROKE! I have had full palettes not do that. I had to repair it and it never came out the same as the first time I used it. I have bought plenty of these after and all have had the same result. I love how pigmented they are and how beautiful they come out but the breakage bothers me so much. I still recommend this product!
Fall Makeup 🍁
ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette - By far one of the best neutral palettes on the market. I love the powdery yet velvety quality of the shadows as well as the wide variety of shades. The shades within this palette flatter my hazel eyes, but I’d imagine this would work for all eye colors, and are so great for fall. On days where I don’t want a full eyeshadow look, I use a small Morphe brush to create soft eyeliner with the Cyprus Umber or Noir shades. I use my URBAN DECAY - Eyeshadow Primer Potion to make the look last and throughout the day, I get so many compliments—it’s a must have! Charlotte Tilbury - Lip Cheat Lip Liner - Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk Collection contains some of my favorite products! The matte lipstick, gloss, and eyeshadow quad are some of my favorites and this Lip Cheat absolutely lives up to the hype. So many lip liners can be too patchy, thin, thick, drying, etc., but this is so velvety and lasts all day! SEPHORA COLLECTION - #LIPSTORIES Lipstick - I love this lipstick so much!! While now isn’t a time for lipstick/lipgloss wearing with a mask, I’m a big fan of satin lipstick and this Sephora Collection Lip Stories in the shade Oui did not disappoint. I would absolutely liken this shade to Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk, excluding the matte quality of the CT lipstick. I found this product wore very well for a satin lipstick and had a great moisturizing component, I definitely recommend! MAKE UP FOR EVER - Matte Velvet Skin Blurring Powder Foundation - I wanted to love this powder, but I found it super drying for the current condition my skin was in. Instead of blurring pores and smoothly covering my skin, the powder seemed to deep into my pores and made skin on my nose and forehead dry and flakey. I think this product would be great for people with oilier skin. Since I’ve started to use some more hydrating products, I think that this product could be better! After doing some research, I learned that the N°7 - Lift & Luminate Powderwas not as drying and more emollient. I picked it up from Target and I’ll share my review on this soon!

Best dupe for ABH Brow Pencil!
I will never forget the first time I walked into a Sephora looking for something to use on my brows and was given the total. “One ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Brow Wiz Mechanical Brow Pencil will be 21 dollars please”. I had 5 dollars on me😳. I found the results to be pretty great but that much for a pencil? I had to find something better. I began working at ulta and heard through many of my customers that e.l.f. - Instant Lift Brow Pencil was their beauty look staple and only cost them a whole 2 dollars. I had to try! I can now happily say I have been using this product for over 5 years and don’t plan on switching anytime soon. It goes on as easily as the ABH pencil, doesn’t smudge all day, and looks super natural. I even tried the e.l.f. - Lock on Liner and Brow Cream and got a more precise look using a thin slanted brush. The only reason I give that one 4 stars is because they don’t have a great range of colors so it was very dark (sometimes looking a little block-ish when I didn’t blend it properly). Love love love ELF!
Coconut 🥥 smoothie primer
This primer is a limited edition by First Aid Beauty, ￼Details and claims: A superfood-powered, oil-free priming moisturizer that visibly brightens and smooths while giving skin a dewy glow. For normal to dry skin, said to help with fine lines and wrinkles, pores, and dryness. ￼Key ingredients: Coconut Water: Helps hydrate and support skin. Quinoa Protein: Helps protect, nurture, and Supports the skin barrier. Mineral Blend: Supports skin health. This is $29.00 at Sephora for 1.7 oz. This is a primer that is two in one. It’s a combination of moisturizer and a primer. It has electrolytes and vital proteins which are amazing for skin. I absolutely love the shimmer it gives and when you apply under a foundation it’s a very pretty barely there glow. It also looks great worn alone which I like a lot. So why only ⭐️⭐️⭐️? Unfortunately, having a super oily T-zone, this primer looked amazing and kept my makeup in place for all of about 2 hours MAX. 😩 I really do wish it worked for me because I love everything about it except for that. I think this primer would be amazing if you have normal to dry skin. I have had much better luck with these : ￼The Ordinary - High-Adherence Silicone Primer ￼e.l.f. - Matte Putty Primer ￼it Cosmetics - Your Skin But Better Makeup Primer+ ￼smashbox - Photo Finish Oil & Shine Control Matte Primer If you deal with an oily T-zone, what’s your favorite primer? 🤔

Not So Great of a Mascara
This mascara is very lightweight formula but unfortunately I don’t believe that it is a strong competitor for other brands with mascaras for lengthening lashes. This mascara is better for bottom at least but not AT ALL for top lashes. wet n wild - Mega Length Mascara
HG after one use!!!
I recently picked up two products from my local Target a couple days ago: e.l.f. - Wow Brow Gel in neutral brown & wet n wild - Mega Length Mascara in very black The first picture is my before - as you can see, my eyebrows are naturally lighter than my hair, and my eyelashes don't particularly stand out. The next photo is me at work in the morning (my uni's music library!) with my eyebrows and mascara done, and the final photo is how it held up into the evening! Throughout the day, I itched my eyes and brows multiple times, and no budge!! Also, I've found that this mascara is easy to use due to its wand, and it doesn't make my eyelashes feel dried out or heavy! Already, I can tell that both of these items are going to be staples in my go-to natural daily look! *DISCLAIMER: Alongside the mascara, I used my regular e.l.f. - Clear Brow & Lash Mascara to prime my eyelashes (I did not use it on my eyebrows, though), and I used e.l.f. - Dewy Coconut Setting Mist to set the entire eye look.
WHY does my makeup do this? I use a primer, foundation and setting spray and some days this happens....so frustrating L.A. Girl - Pro Prep HD Face Primer Charlotte Tilbury - Airbrush Flawless Longwear Foundation Coty AIRSPUN - Airspun Translucent Extra Coverage Loose Powder wet n wild - Photo Focus Setting Spray
No make up day look😉
When I’m going for a natural no make up day look, here’s what I use!🤩 Step 1- e.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer I use this to conceal my under eyes and make them look brighter! Step 2- MAYBELLINE - Fit Me Concealer I use this to conceal any blemishes, it doesn’t cling to dry patches and blends easily with good amount of coverage! Step 3- PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Butter Highlighter If I wanna be a little “fancy” I put on some highlighter. A very nice formula, blends in easy & leave you with a shine! Step 4- essence - Lash Princess False Lash Effect Waterproof Mascara I put on mascara, really leaves you looking like u have false lashes! Step 5- wet n wild - Photo Focus Setting Spray Lastly I set my makeup with this hydrating spray! And I always use chapstick so my lips aren’t crusty 😉.

Sunday = NFL Makeup!
Another Sunday, another Bengals tie (which may as well be a loss), and another NFL inspired makeup look. Y’all seemed to enjoy the last look, so I’m here to share again! I’m a diehard Cincinnati Bengals fan, so I had two colors to play with today: orange and black! TATCHA - The Silk Canvas Protective Primer Primed with my brand new trial-size Tatcha primer. No shock—it’s amazing... but I can’t justify the heft price tag! Too Faced - Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Concealer As usual, a glam look isn’t a truly-glam look without my favorite concealer! 🥰 My dark circles were semi-manageable today, so only needed a little! Shade: Snow. e.l.f. - Retro Paradise Eyeshadow Palette The orange hues in this palette truly are amazing. Again, four stars because of fallout—so make sure you tap that brush, y’all! Colors: Fuego, Caliente, Nightlife, Sea Salt (inner corners, brow bone) Fortuna (sparkle on the lid). HAUS LABORATORIES - Glam Attack Liquid Eyeshadow When it comes to liquid eyeshadows, Lady Gaga got it right. Glam Attack shadows come in lots of beautiful colors, from neutrals to intense blacks. My eyeliner is accented with my favorite shade: Chained Ballerina. Gorgeous finish with a subtle sparkle. (Note: it dries down fast, so blend quickly!) NARS - High-Pigment Longwear Eyeliner Got this baby as a free gift from Sephora the other day, and man... by far my new favorite liner for tight-lining! Such a smooth application, and it doesn’t budge! LANCÔME - Monsieur Big Mascara Another freebie. This one at Ulta. I already own the waterproof variation of this 💣 mascara, but I went with the regular formula today. If you need a mascara that gives you lots of drama, this is the one you need! EYLURE - ProMagnetic Magnetic Eyeliner & Lash System Finally... these lashes are 🔥, and application is easy-peasy. Three layers of the black magnetic liner on the lash line (let each layer dry thoroughly!!), pop em on, and you’re done. These beauties are so lightweight, I don’t even know I’m wearing them. First time trying this brand... and it will not be the last! My face is all done with Scott Barnes face palettes. Post on his products coming soon, but here’s the list: scott barnes - Chic Cheek N°1 Blush Palette scott barnes - Sculpting and Contour N°1 Palette scott barnes - Glowy & Showy N°1 Highlighter Palette And there ya go. My Cincinnati Bengals glam look for the week. 😉 Let me know if you give it a try! 🏈

Affordable & Looks Natural!
There's a dupe that's close to this Milani blush but I don't remember which one. These two works great because I don't usually enjoy powder highlighters that has a hint of color in it. I'm more of the natural white. I didn't know that the more you use the highlighter, it turns pink in the bottom. But it still looks great! MILANI - Rose Powder Blush MILANI - Hypnotic Lights Powder Highlighter This blush from what I see when I use this, is that it's buildable. You can do a small swipe and still get color but it's very subtle. It doesn't look like you went ham on the blush unless if you decide to put more on. Hence the buildable. The highlighter is also subtle. Compared to my Becca highlighter, one swipe also gives a subtle glow with the Becca, the power is a bit heavier so it picked up a lot of pigments from one swipe. Overall, it's really great quality and affordable.
We stan Pietro in this house 🤡💗
Continuing the ACNH series, today I bring you Pietro ❤️ my favorite sheep villager and overall best boy. Products used: ⭐️ Complexion products: •e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer •DIOR - Forever Skin Correct Concealer •essence - All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder ⭐️ For the teardrop, heart & nose: •Transcend Dance from COLOURPOP - In a Trance Shadow Palette •My Milkshake from COLOURPOP - Strawberry shake shadow palette •Daiquiri from the same palette as above. ⭐️ Highlighter (for the tip of the nose): •OFRA - Limited Edition Rodeo Drive Highlighter Ornament ⭐️ Brows: • ohii - Magic Hair Wand ⭐️ Lips: •The now discontinued NYX Whipped Lip & Cheek Soufflé in Molten Love 💋 ⭐️ Lashes: •I just went to my nearest beauty supply and picked the most dramatic lashes I could find! Brand is Cherry Blossom, they’re their 3D SILK LASH, style #003 For this look I did my face makeup as usual, just some light concealing, just powdering with a matte powder. I like to keep my brows sheer and fluffy when doing villager makeup lol 😅 I tried drawing the teardrop and heart on my cheeks freehanded but ya girl is not talented like that, so I decided to do cutouts of both and stick them to my face using washi tape so it’s easy to remove and won’t tug on my skin, then I just filled them in using the shadows I mentioned above from Colourpop. For my nose I used Daiquiri from the Strawberry Shake palette, which is perfect for this since it’s a pigment and you just need the tiniest bit! Then I added some highlighter just on the tip to make it pop 😋 For some reason NYX always discontinues the products I really like, so I can’t tag the exact product I used since you won’t be able to find it but honestly any red lipstick or cream you have will do the trick! Whenever I’m doing extra af makeup I like to wear extra af, dramatic lashes like these 😌 lashes always make the look in my opinion! These from Cherry Blossom are so soft, I wish the band wasn’t as obvious but the more you use them, the easier it is to apply them! And that’s it! Surprisingly, this look didn’t take as long as I thought it would but it is still cute and festive 🤡 Which villager should I do next? I already have some on my list, but I’d love to hear your favorites! 💗 #cheriepartner #cheriecreator
Turning myself into Merengue from ACNH 🍓
Hi, my name’s Francine and I’m addicted to Animal Crossing!!! 🐶🐷🐱🐰🦊💗 If you guys have been following along you’ve probably seen my other ACNH inspired lewks. Someone suggested I did Merengue next, and honestly she was already on my list! Merengue is a normal rhino villager and her name comes from “meringue”, a type of dessert made with egg whites and sugar. My husband has her on his island and she’s the cutest!! 🍰 I also got inspo from @neoini on IG! They did this look a while ago, and I’m just beyond obsessed. Here’s what I used for this look: 🍓 e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer 🍰DIOR - Forever Skin Correct Concealer 🍓essence - All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder 🍰essence - Satin Touch Blush 🍓COLOURPOP - Strawberry shake shadow palette 🍰CALEY COSMETICS - Beach Babe Natural Lips 🍓Glossier. - Glossier. Lip Gloss 🍰Freck BEAUTY - THE ORIGINAL FRECKLE 🍓OFRA - Limited Edition Rodeo Drive Highlighter Ornament 🍰 ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Gel How did I do it: • First I started by prepping my skin, so I used my favorite primer atm. The elf poreless putty primer gives me a smooth, flawless base every time. • Next I spot concealed with the Dior forever skin correct concealer, I wear shade 1W. • I like to keep my brows soft when I’m doing villager inspired makeup lol, so I only went in with the dipbrow gel, which I don’t love but I can’t find my elf wow brow 😔 • Now for the eyes I used one of my favorite palettes from CP and did a soft, shimmery pink eye bc the lil strawberry nose is the focal point here! • The nose was so hard guys, I used a white concealer and a green eyeliner from a now discontinued beauty brand and just carefully tried to draw a strawberry. Any white creamy shadow or concealer will work and any green shadow or liner is ok! I used the shade Daiquiri from the Strawberry Shake palette for the rest. Ta-da! • To set my makeup I used the essence - All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder I purchased this powder when I did my Flora makeup and needed a white fixing powder. I went with Essence because honestly I rarely ever use mattifying powders for my regular makeup routine, and Essence is inexpensive and they’re powders are just top tier. This powder is supposed to be “invisible” so I just build up until I can no more and it works great! Its surprisingly lightweight even when I apply like 10 layers to get maximum opacity. Also the price is hard to beat! $3.99 for 8 grams 🙌 • I used the Satin Touch Blush in Coral love. • For the freckles I used the Freck BEAUTY - THE ORIGINAL FRECKLE the liquid-y formula and small brush makes it easy to draw fake freckles, but it’s a little warm for my taste and way too small. Def not a need.

Let’s chat concealer
So as of late - and the two times a month I put on makeup, I’ve been sampling this MAYBELLINE - Super Stay Full Coverage Under-Eye Concealer . I was excited to try it out because these dark circles can’t be kicked with the current eye cream. So for 10 dollars I’d say - not a fan. It leaves my skin very dehydrated and as you can see - after an hour of wear it cakes on and shows the creases. It certainly isn’t hydrating. Note I have no other foundation on because I’ll be wearing a mask so I just wanted to target my eyes. It’s expensive and the fact that there’s only 0.23 ounces in there seems like a rip off. I’d say - not a fan. I think it does a decent job covering my dark spots but when you get close to me - you see how damaging it makes my eye wrinkles look. What’s your thoughts?
Drug store makeup dupes 🚨

SUMMER 2020 RED LIP MAKEUP LOOK
Hey fam, here's a look that I never get sick of, especially for summer. I actually wore this exact look for my wedding last week 💍 It was perfect for the short ceremony at the city hall and formal enough for a nice dinner after. IMO you can never go wrong with simple eye makeup and a classic cool toner red lip! Here are the products I used: wet n wild - Photofocus Liquid Matte Foundation This is such a great affordable foundation that just works. I don't find it's very high coverage but that's exactly what I prefer. e.l.f. - Selfie Foundation Blurring Brush This makeup brush makes putting on foundation SO fast. It's actually converted me from makeup sponges back to brushes! URBAN DECAY - Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion Always makes eyeshadow last so much longer! NARS - Blush/Bronzer Duo I actually don't tend to use this as bronzer, but rather as eyeshadow. It's the perfectly slightly warm brown for a summery wash of colour over the eyelids. L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara This is the most impressed I've been with a Western drugstore mascara for a while! However I do find it does flake a little towards the end of the day. MAYBELLINE - Brow Ultra Slim Defining Eyebrow Pencil I like how thin this is, again it makes everything so quick and easy for a great brow. benefit - 24-Hour Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel It took me a while to learn how to use this for my brows! It's a great brow gel but honestly overpriced for what it is. MAC - Ruby Woo Lip Duo My favourite red lip, ever. My lipstick version is actually from the limited edition Collab that Rihanna did with MAC. the Balm cosmetics - Mary Lou Manizer Luminizer Highlighter i have had this for so long, you can see it's well loved! Its my favourite highlighter, perfect for my skin tone.

2020 Summer “Sweet Treats” Themed Makeup
For those of us who live in the Southern Hemisphere, Summer is just around the corner, and things are already heating up, and it’s not just the weather, honey! In the next few months, half the world will be heading into springtime, and that brings fresh fashion, bright colours, and fierce makeup with it. Here’s how you can create a quick, easy, “sweet treats” themed makeup look to match your shining summertime personality. Complexion Work: For my base makeup, I used REVOLUTION - Fast Base Stick Foundation in shade F3. I concealed with the help of REVOLUTION - Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer in shade C1. I contoured my cheeks using Revlon Sculpt & Highlight Contour Kit, in shade light/medium. I then applied a soft layer of Juvia's PLACE - The Saharan Blush Palette shade Leena. I also used NYX - Strobe of Genius Holographic Stick in “Mermaid Amour” for an iridescent shine. Colourful Sweet Treats Eye Makeup: Moving on to the eyes, I used theMORPHE - The James Charles Palette for the whole look. I started off by packing on “Pinkity Drinkity” onto the inner half of my eyelid and crease. I then took a light dab of “Skip”, then more Pinkity Drinkity on the same brush to deepen the shade slightly and make it more of a soft but vibrant pink. For darker skin tones, you may want to use more Skip to create a brighter colour. Next up is shade “518”, which I took on a small blending brush and packed onto the outer corner of my eyelid, sweeping inward diagonally toward my lash line. Similarly, I pulled that orange shade outwards towards the tail of my brow, and softly blended it into my pink shadows. I also pulled some of 518 onto the outer third of my lower lash line. To complete the lower lash line, I used shade “Bee” to bring some lightness and brightness to the inner portion of my eye, blending it into 518 along the way. For a final pop of summery colour, I packed shade “Hello” onto a small pencil brush, and spritzed it with a setting spray, before packing it onto the inner corner of my eye. The super shiny effect of the shadow and its lustrous, tropical colour really added a fun and fabulous edge to the themed look. I finished the eyes off with a little black eyeshadow on the outer half of my upper lash line, and some MAYBELLINE - Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara on my lashes, and there you have it! A quick, easy summer makeup look for all levels of makeup lovers. Would you like to see some “how to guides” for more wearable, colourful looks? Comment what colours you’d like to learn how to wear during the daytime!
REVOLUTION-Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer
Best eyebrow and eyelash gel for CAD $2.99. I started using this product about 4 years ago and still use it today. I started using it for my eyelashes to separate and as a base before applying mascara. I then started using it to set my eyebrows. It can be used in two ways: 1) use it after filling in your eyebrows OR 2) use it after filling in your eyebrows, apply powder to set your eyebrows and then using this gel. This product is the best, it does not dry out and does not get clumpy. I would honestly recommend this product 100%. You cannot go wrong by spending $2.99 on this product. It can be used on any skin tone and on any skin colour. The gel can be used to separate lashes and you do not have to use mascara. It really helps to lengthen the lashes and make the mascara process a lot easier. As you can see in my picture, my eyelashes are separated and look long and healthy, my eyebrows are set as well. My eyebrows had been done for 8 hours and did not move, as seen in the last picture. essence - Lash & Brow Gel Mascara REVLON - Photoready Candid Natural Finish Anti-Pollution Foundation DOSE OF COLORS - DOSE OF COLORS Liquid Matte Lipstick MAYBELLINE - Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder

My Go-To Pallet gives you a Kim K-worthy contour
Who doesn't enjoy convenience? We're human. We love convenience in all shapes and sizes. Why do you think delivery apps are skyrocketing in popularity? While I love a good meal delivered to my front door, I can also appreciate an all-in-one makeup pallet. My Go-To All-In-One Face Pallet: The Kevyn Aucoin Art of Sculpting + Defining pallet is my #1 choice for a natural everyday pallet that gets the job done fast. I find myself reaching for this pallet when I know I don't have much time to spend on my day's makeup. The pallet retails for $59. Is It Worth It? For me, the creme de la creme of face pallets is the 'The Contour Book Volume II' by Keyin Aucoin. As a longtime fan of his Sculpting Powder, which gives you a Kim K-worthy contour, this pallet comes with my beloved chiseling power and a cream version, highlighters, and four eyeshadows. Altogether, you get a total of eight pans. Naturally, the face products are larger than the eyeshadows. I love almost everything in this pallet. I'm personally not the biggest eyeshadow person, so I use the shadows as an inner corner highlight instead! Plus, the darker eyeshadow shade can double as a brow powder for me. It comes with a huge mirror, too, making great for travel or minor touch-ups. There's also a handy guide that teaches you how to sculpt your cheekbones out and use the eyeshadows to naturally shape and define the eyes. Tip: I love layering the Candlelight Cream and Candlelight Powder. The subtle shimmer in the powder really makes the cream highlight pop. Plus, it makes it last longer! Final Thoughts: I love this pallet, and I ultimately think it's worth it. If not for anything else, I continue to buy this pallet for the Sculpting Powder alone. It's seriously THE BEST contour powder I've ever used.

Bronzer VS Blush | 🦋ABG makeup look🦋
To get things started, we have to keep the differences between bronzer and blush in mind: "Bronzer is basically blush, but blush is not bronzer." Blush should be used to add warmth to the cheeks, while bronzer is used specifically to make you look tan. In a nutshell, blush is used to add a flush of color to the cheeks, while bronzer is intended to make the skin look sun-kissed or tan.✨ As a result, blush tends to come in variations of pink (sometimes with peach or plum undertones), where bronzer is typically brown or gold in color. 🦋 How they applied Blush is made to be applied directly to the apples of the cheeks and cheekbones. Bronzer can be applied both to the cheekbones and brow, jawline, and other contours of the face and décolletage. 🦋 Mood and Occasion If you’re going for a natural look, bronzer can add a hint of color and definition. Bronzer is perfect for casual weekend events, as well as more made-up evening looks, particularly those that include contouring. Blush can add a touch of softer, flushed color and is also great for daywear, but use it sparingly—blushes are often very pigmented and can go on heavy if you're not careful. Whichever you choose, keep in mind that less is more, and be sure to keep the color (whether pink or bronze) within range of your natural skin tone. Now that we’ve gone over the difference between bronzer and blush, hopefully you won’t be staring at your makeup bag in confusion any longer about which to wear. So for today’s ABG makeup look, I applied bronzer to make my chin look more strong and the face look slimmer. 🦋 Product details: PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzer Best-selling bronzers in the mass market! I’ve bought this product with $14.95, it comes in an adorable tropical-looking compact complete with palm trees and bright colors on it. As soon as you open the top, you can catch a whiff of the buttery goodness going on in there. It smells like Butter Cookies or close to that. The product pan is beautiful and is shaped like sea waves. 🦋 Color: Oohhh!!! The color!!! This bronzer has the perfect bronze-y gold shade with peach undertones for adding the correct amount of warmth and glow to the face. This is certainly not a contouring powder, but the color is best suited for adding some glow and warmth to the skin on a daily basis. 🦋 Texture: It feels very silky and buttery to the touch, like almost creamy! It also contains soft-focus pigments and ultra-refined pearl that gives a glow that looks so beautiful. This bronzer by no means contains chunky shimmer or glitter, has the correct amount of finely-milled shiny powder with a bronze-y glow. 🦋 Longevity: The bronzer does have considerable longevity and does stay on the face for about 6-7 hours which is incredible! I do set my face with a setting spray or a face mist and it does increase the longevity of this product. Anyway, ABG makeup look check!!

🇺🇸 happy memorial day weekend! 🌊 explaination I’m an active duty service member in the Navy. Balancing femininity with the confines of a uniform can be pretty difficult at times. A lot of people question how much makeup I am allowed to wear and how/when. And I wear a full face! 🌊 so what can you wear? The general guidelines (lot of paraphrasing here) are that makeup must look natural looking, not be faddish, and not use overly bright colors/glitter. Special occasions do call for special looks, but I tend to wear the same products everyday. 🌊 what I do My goal is to make it look like I’m not wearing makeup even though I probably spent 30-40 minutes on my face that morning. I tend to skip eyeshadow to save time, especially with my hooded eyes. feel free to ask any questions! 🌊 My current daily makeup lineup Primer: Milk MAKEUP - Hydro Grip Primer Concealer: MAYBELLINE - SuperStay Better Skin Concealer Setting Powder: REVOLUTION - Conceal & Fix Setting Powder Blush: Milk MAKEUP - Lip + Cheek Bronzer: Milk MAKEUP - Matte Bronzer Brow Pencil ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Perfect Brow Pencil Brow Gel benefit - Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel Setting Spray Urban Decay All Nighter Mascara Too Faced Damn Girl!
