My fav face palette, brings me the perfect look
This is my favourite full-face palette: Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette from Hourglass. I know how hourglass is famous for its highlighters but let me tell you, although this palette looks like containing three highlighters, this is not a simple highlighter! I bought this after reading tons of positive reviews online and it really doesn’t let me down. What does it have: Absolute strobe light Pure strobe light Lucent strobe light How to use them: This is not only a highlighter, as I said. And since I love the glow so much, I have explored multiple ways to corporate this palette into my makeup and this is amazing how this always looks good at almost every place on my face lol. Here’s a detailed guidance. I use the first powder as an all over powder. It can blot down shininess and never looks like you powdered your face. People always say that they can’t see the “product” on my face and I guess that’s why this palette has the name because it’s ambient! The powders are meant to give your skin a natural-glow-within type of look. I use the powder in the middle as a highlighter, especially good for the under-eye area. And since it is the most glowing one in this palette, I’ve also tried to use it as a shimmer to apply on the corner of the eye, which really compliments almost every eye look. And for the final powder, the darkest shade, I use it to accentuate my contour or bronzer. I would also use all the 3 to apply all over my face. My thoughts on this product: I know many brands have their own face palette. The reason I opted for this one is that I am so drawn into the nice subtle glow of these three powders. It’s really hard to describe: It’s not shimmery or metallic-y. I hope the pictures could let you have a sense of it. It is sold at $64 at Sephora. I know it’s little pricy and I do believe you can purchase a similar product for a lot less but, personally, it’s definitely a staple in my makeup collection and I don’t regret buying it at all!

Body GLITTER | Worth the $$$?????
This is a very glittery shimmer unlike the usual lotion shimmers, Gives a stunning glow when out in the sun. recommended to two friends who are so satisfied as well. FENTY BEAUTY - Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil So the packaging is nice, it feels soft. It is Very Very Very pretty and smells great. Everytime I wear this I get so many compliments on the look and the scent! Feels like I’m always glistening.so glittery. Let's get started on how to put it on. Normally I would apply a primmer before this. Just to make sure the glitter stays naturally and won’t fall off over my neck. Basically you will need a soft brush for this powder. Apply on the areas where you want to highlight - the neck and shoulder. It is really soft and does a great job in blending out these glittery powders and makes it look natural. The colors match the my fair skin tone perfectly. It does hold a lot of glitter in its bristles when you are using a brush, If you do want to do a little bit of creamy product for contouring, you may want to use a sponge or just bare fingers.It just makes it more intense. But still, Feels and looks very luxurious I think this brush is great to put on the body but for what it it is it’s quite pricey for what it is. For this kind of product, I feel like less is more. And it will give you a more sweaty and dewy finish. It is not so much sheen or shimmer. Overall, this product is Really beautiful. I would imagine that Im wearing this in a night club and look like a diamond bob. I like it makes me look summery and fun and dewy. And if you dont like anything sticky (referring to those shimmery oil or cream in market) like me, this one would probably be a great option. However, I do notice the glitters might fall off even with primmer. So be careful when you are hugging someone or exchange your cloth. And i feel like the color is very universal, there are many dupes at lower prices.

Full(ish) face of ILIA
ILIA has become one of my favorite beauty brands over the past year due to their gorgeous products, clean beauty stance, and amazing formulations. I’m wearing nearly a full face from them minus the brows (benefit gimme brow) and bronzer (milk baked, but they just came out with their own). - Super Serum Skin Tint: 8/10 This skin tint contains spf 40, niacinimide, squalane, and hyaluronic acid so its a three in one product perfect for busy mornings. I find it to be long wearing about 8 or 9 hours of wear, which is pretty high for a skin tint. This gives the skin such a glowy, hydrated look. - Color Haze Pigment in Stutter: 9/10 Used here as a blush these also look gorgeous on the lips. Stutter is my favorite of all the pigment shades, it is a deep burnt orange that is very rare to find. The pigment itself is probably the thickest cream blush I’ve ever used but that just means you need the smallest amount, a little goes a long way. - Liquid Light Serum Highlighter: 6/10 This product can be a kind of hit or miss with me, sometimes it looks so gorgeous and natural and other times it accentuates the texture of my skin so badly. My favorite ways to use this is either mixed in with a base or under the super serum skin tint. These methods of application allow the highlighter to appear more skin like and dewy. - Limitless Lash Mascara: 10/10 My favorite mascara ever! This gives amazing length, doesn’t get clumpy, adds volume, and last for hours. This is truly the best mascara I’ve tried by far.

For Different Skin Tones！How To Make The Complexion Look Softer And Smoother ？
Illuminating is different from dramatic contouring and highlighting. Illuminating powders are essentially glow-ifiers, not unlike bronzers and highlighters, but much more subtle. When applied the right way, illuminating powder gives the complexion a lit-from-within, diffused glow, look softer and smoother. Here are some tips for girls with different skin tones to apply illuminating powders for a soft and smooth makeup. General tips No matter your skin tone, it’s best to avoid anything with too much sparkle. It can look tacky and even draw attention to wrinkles and imperfections. On Dark to Medium-Dark Skin On darker skin tones, a powder with a little warmth (think peach, gold, or beige) is the way to go to avoid ashiness. A soft blush brush works well, swirl it to pick up the product, flick or shake off the excess, and buff on in a circular motion. On Medium-Fair to Fair Skin Use powder with pearlescent shade for lighter complexions—but nothing shimmery. It will reflect light just a little bit, give you a dewy finish but no glitter effect. Oily Skin Those with really oily skin may want to avoid illuminator altogether. But if you really want to use one, I strongly recommend you HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Powder. Setting powder first and then do a light dusting of soft illuminator over the top. The particles of pearl are so fine that the product doesn’t look like it’s sitting on skin, and won’t draw attention to fine lines.

Blush or Bronzer? Which one will I pick?
All of us crave for glowy, dewy skin with a hint of shine but there are days when our skin needs a little help, especially when we are experiencing stress or fatigue. Blush and bronzer are my must-haves to achieve this lit-from-within glowy goddess look. While both products may seem to deliver the same effects, the ways in which they are used and their results can differ. My general tip is that bronzer can operate as a blush, but blush is not bronzer. Blush is used to add a flush of color to the cheeks and cheekbones, while bronzer lets you acheive a tan, and can be applied to the cheekbones and brow, jawline, other contours of the face and décolletage. For a more formal occasion, I may use both products together to create a more contoured look. As my make-up look these days is more natural and casual, I tend to lean towards just using a blush. I can forego using a bronzer but blush is a must-have for adding a hint of natural rosiness to the cheeks and to achieve a vibrant, fresh-faced look! My go-to blush at the moment is L'oreal Le Bar A Blush. Packaged in a compact case that makes it convenient for bringing out for touch-ups, the blush also includes a mini applicator with soft hairs. The color is neutral enough to bring out a soft glow on my tan skin, thanks to a natural sheen of gold dust in the formula. The blush helps to add a touch of softer, flushed color for everyday day wear, and if I want to progress into evening activities, I simply blot any excess oil on my face and layer on the existing blush on my face. It is always good to remember that less is more! It is simpler to layer a little of product each time to get the look that you desire. ;)

“Subtle” eGirl makeup? 🤔 (she tried)
If you’re on the internet a lot like myself, chances are you’ve come across someone sporting “eGirl” makeup. What is an eGirl you might be wondering? Well, I’m not pretty sure of what the term really means.. or who would be considered an eGirl? I have so many questions lol but if we’re talking eGirl makeup then I do know the aesthetic is very similar to what emo/punk makeup was in my day, but with an “I’m baby” quality and kinda more glam? This type of makeup is often characterized by the use of soft pinks, purples, heavy winged liner, big wispy lashes, glossy lips and blushed noses ✨ I tried following a tutorial i found on Pinterest, but kind of more subtle to make it something I would personally wear out 🥰 I’ll list what I used below 💜💜 ⭐️ DIOR - Forever Skin Glow Foundation I love lightweight foundations that give me a natural finish but that I can build up in case I want a more medium coverage. This is my absolute favorite!! It’s simply amazing, it’s creamy but not heavy. ⭐️ DIOR - Forever Skin Correct Concealer eGirl always have flawless skin, so I used my favorite concealer on some areas like my under eyes, around my nose and on my chin to cover up some redness. ⭐️ COLOURPOP - Sailor Moon x Pretty Guardian Eyeshadow Palette if you’re able to get your hands on this palette I’d say get it! I think the CP Sailor Moon collection is such a polarizing one but I personally loved it. Aside from the fact that it sells out every time in like 0.3 seconds 🙃 I think it’s such a cute collection. ⭐️ COLOURPOP - Colourpop Pressed Powder Blush I don’t know if this shade is still available, but Colourpop has such cute blush shades, but also any peachy blush works just fine. ⭐️ BECCA - Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter a friend gifted me this in the iconic Champagne Pop shade, I love it. So creamy and blinding! ⭐️ Glossier. - Pro Tip Brush Point Liquid Eyeliner solid eyeliner, reminds me of my favorite Japanese brush tip liner. ⭐️ flesh - FLESHY LIPS Sheer Lipstick idk if flesh is even a brand now but I love the formula of this lipstick, it’s balmy and feels hydrating. #CheriePartner
