Flower Beauty is Worth the Hype 🌺
So many influencers are raging about this particular foundation and swear by it--particularly Dacey Cash. So I decided to give Flower Beauty (by Drew Barrymore) a try. Ordered the FLOWER - Light Illusion Liquid Foundation

Acne Cover up Pro Tip
My go to makeup tip is for when I get acne. I like putting concealer on the pimple and blending out with my finger then applying foundation then another concealer layer then add powder to lock it in. I start with the CATRICE COSMETICS - Liquid Camouflage Concealer then go in with any foundation followed by FLOWER - Light Illusion Full Coverage Concealer my holy grail concealer then I go with Charlotte Tilbury - Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder to set! It camouflages the pimple and redness all day!
LIGHT ILLUSION FOUNDATION
SO DEWY This foundation lives up to its name! I used the Flower Beauty blending sponge to apply and the medium-to-high coverage with a dewy finish was exactly what I wanted. FLOWER - Ultimate 3-in-1 Blending Sponge LOOKS EXPENSIVE This is certainly the kind of foundation that can be almost as sheer or high coverage as you like. While it didn’t quite cover every blemish, it did a very nice job and lasts all day long. It was while wearing this foundation (in shade Ivory L2) that my husband said, for the first time ever, “Your makeup looks nice today.” CRUELTY-FREE I am a strong advocate for Flower Beauty and the high quality of their drugstore-priced products. But even more importantly (to me), they are a brand that doesn’t test on animals. Flower Beauty makes it easy to start a cruelty-free makeup journey, and I’ve found them an excellent substitute for my old Maybelline and L’Oreal products.
Glossier 💕 is it worth it?
I absolutely LOVE this brand! I love everything about it and I love how these products create effortless makeup looks. I’m white as a 👻 so I us shade G12, which matches my skin perfectly. The stretch concealer is my all time favorite! Perfect for little touch ups and NEVER makes my under eye crease. It’s the bomb lol covers up redness and hides imperfections without any cakey-ness Glossier. - Stretch Concealer This foundation is sheer but when you combine it with the stretch concealer it all melts together so well! These are the perfect duo in my opinion. The skin tint feels like a moisturizer and keeps my skin feeling good all day. Glossier. - Perfecting Skin Tint If you are already happy with your skin and just want that beautiful natural dewy look these are your products! Great coverage without being too thick and great for summer looks 🌞 Pro tip: I haven’t tried their Wowder powder yet but if I feel a little too glossy, I use a touch of bare minerals finishing veil powder on shiny spots. ✨

ACNE-FRIENDLY spot concealer
This is my all-time favorite spot concealer! I love that it’s matte without being too drying. It does an excellent job of covering spots. I apply it with my finger or with a brush (I really like the Sephora Beauty Magnet Concealer Brush and it’s only $4 right now). It’s pigmented and stays put especially when set with powder. I’ve never had issues with it drying me out or breaking me out, either. I find it a bit too dry for use on my under eyes, but I know lots of people love it for that as well!NARS - Soft Matte Complete Concealer

NARS Creamy Concealer in Vanilla
My favorite concealer. This creamy opaque formula has a great texture and has great staying power. This shade is one of the lighter shades, works wonderfully. I apply using the doefoot applicator and then blend with a beauty sponge. This is great at helping to cover and conceal my facial redness. I’ve repurchased this many times, it’s my go-to concealer!

Flawless skin in a bottle
For my flawless foundation and concealer picks I can’t go past these 3.. the Nars Sheer Glow is exactly the medium coverage flawless I want for my weekday looks while I lean more towards the fuller coverage Mac Studio Fix for weekends. Everyday it’s my Nars Creamy Concealer covering all my blemishes and tired eyes! 💕
NARS-Radiant Creamy Concealer
The most important product in my makeup routine✨
NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer Switching things up a little. Although I am a skincare enthusiast, I am also very picky with the make-up I purchase. I like to wear minimal make-up that still covers my imperfections. Considering my preference, concealer is the most important step in my makeup routine. I have purchased numerous types of concealers that I thought just didn’t do the best or didn’t match my skin tone. The NARS radiant creamy concealer is THE BEST concealer I have ever purchased by far. The coverage is absolutely phenomenal and a little product goes a long way. It does not feel heavy or greasy or ashy on the skin. It leaves a natural glow and sinks right into the skin creating a bright glow. Additionally, the product is perfect for under-eye brightening or even concealing any imperfections. Concealing imperfections with this product is magical, any blemish completely disappears! Like I said above, it is the most important step on my makeup routine, it is my holy grail, and I cannot go without this concealer. I have never looked back!

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.4 DAYS AGO
