Current Obsessions: Blinged Brushes ✨
Hey Cherie Fam 🍒 I hope you’re all doing well! I’ve been on an indie brand train lately and I recently came across 𝓑𝓵𝓲𝓷𝓰𝓮𝓭 𝓑𝓻𝓾𝓼𝓱𝓮𝓼 Blinged Brushes is a female-owned makeup brush brand that began in 2017. Their brushes are hand-crafted with luxury crystals. They are also cruelty free (source: website) At first I wasn’t in to it because it looked cheap and something you can buy from the dollar store. However, I started doing research and watched numerous videos regarding reviews on YouTube and most had positive comments about the brand. It was so pink and sparkly so I bit the bullet and purchased anyway 🤪 The set that I got was a collab with Paige Koren. She is a beauty YouTuber who made these brushes well known. The eye set I got retails for 78USD and comes with 8 brushes. I know it sounds pricy, but it comes out to $9.75 a piece. This set is a little bit more expensive than others and I think it’s because it is a collab. However, they have eye sets that are about $5-10 cheaper. I have been using these a lot these lately. So much that I have been ignoring my Sigma, Smith and Wayne Goss brushes. I thought they looked cheap, but when they arrived and saw them in person, I can tell that the brushes are made from quality materials. The crystals also feel high quality. Not only these are beautiful, they also perform well. The brushes are soft and don’t feel scratchy at all. I washed them a few times and they still feel soft. If you want 20% off, you can use code BLING. I am not affiliated with this brand at all and don’t make any commission. This is the code I used when I purchased so I’m not sure if it still works. Are you in to indie brands? If so what is your current favorite brand? Xoxo, Francesca 💋

My Makeup Brush
My Makeup Brush and I have something to say💁🏻♀️👇🏼 . Trolling has become a literal trend. I am aware that many people who leave nasty comments get some kind of inner satisfaction because it makes them feel less bad about themselves by pointing out “flaws” in others Fact of the matter is: You will never see someone doing good in life, demean another person, as they are too busy self reflecting and growing💁🏻♀️ . So here’s what I do, if you’re on the receiving end, the next time you receive a negative comment ( not talking about constructive criticism ), by an aunty, uncle( yes those 40yr old men who dm), stranger on social media, think of the fact above and simply IGNORE. Your mental health will sky rocket✨ Everyone is capable of replying with hurtful words, but I won’t bite because they’re probably already fighting a war on the inside and I got better things to do🤓 That being said I am appreciative of everyone who have my back in the comments on Youtube and Instagram ❤️ . Sending love and hugs to ALL✨ XO
Favorite makeup tools ✨ #Cheriepartner
These two are my ride and die whenever I do my makeup! Some products I like to use the beauty blender, however there are some products where I like to use my kabuki brush. I love the beauty blender because of how soft and easy to apply it is. I lightly dab it on my face for the perfect coverage. I got both of them at Sephora during one of their sales. And this Tarte kabuki is so densely packaged that it doesn’t streak your product on your face and looks flawless!! I bought this at Ulta a while back and have been trying to keep it in perfect shape because the only downside is that it’s a bit pricey! Depending on the kind of makeup I wanna use, I always got for one of these two!! beautyblender - Classic Makeup Sponge Pink tarte - The Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush

✨ My Fav Eyeshadow Brushes ✨
These are my top 3 eyeshadow brushes! I am very picky with them and like fluffy brushes that make blending easy and effortless and aren’t scratchy or shed hairs. These are the easiest brushes to use, they practically do the blending for you! I also enjoy Real Technique brushes, but these are my favs because of how easy they are to use and not scratchy or shed. I also included a look I did using only these brushes (applied the shimmer with my finger, they always seems to apply best that way for me)! . Transition Crease Brush: #SEPHORA COLLECTION - Makeup Match Crease Brush[products]#[FiveStars] was on sale a couple months ago for $6 or so and best price ever! It is my favorite crease brush, it’s soft and is easy to blend up or go back over areas. These are a great value if you can catch them on sale, if not, then the Real Technique brushes are a great value as well! . Darker Transition Color/Outer V Brush: I love using a fluffy brush to buff a darker color into my crease/transition shade and onto the outer edge of my eye. This It Cosmetics Brush actually came in a set with other brushes and is a concealer brush, but it’s so fluffy it’s perfect for me for this! I also enjoy using this to buff my shimmer eyelid shade into my other colors so it isn’t as harsh with this brush because it’s so fluffy. #it Cosmetics - Love Beauty Fully Blending Concealer Brush #203[products]#[FiveStars] Ulta usually has the It Cosmetics brush sets on sale for half off during the Black Friday or 21 Days of Beauty sales, so I would wait for a sale to pick this up! . Inner Corner/Brow Bone Highlight: The #LUXIE - Bc Summer Daze Set[products]#[FiveStars] came in a BoxyCharm box and wow these brushes are so soft!! The 203 Large Shader brush is perfect for picking up a highlight shade and brushing it onto your brow bone and inner corner without messing up the other colors! . #CheriePartner

Move over Cremated 💀 Best smokey eye palette
I’ve been wanting the Lime Crime - Venus Eyeshadow Palette ever since it came out. I had the original Venus palette and I wasn’t that impressed with the formula so I held off for a very long time. I eventually took the plunge and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since. This 8 pan cool toned eyeshadow palette contains 4 mattes, 2 shimmers, and 2 foil shades. Like I said I wasn’t going into this palette with the highest hopes but I was absolutely shocked. The mattes are all super pigmented, buttery, and blend really well. The foil shades POP on the lid so easily with your finger. I think the only downfall (which actually isn’t a downfall to me) is the shimmers don’t preform like your typical shimmers. They are a lot more sheer than your typical shimmers but actually my favorite shade in the palette is a shimmer. Marble is the white sheer shimmer shade that has a beautiful subtle sparkle all throughout. This is my favorite shade to highlight my brow bone and inner corner with. It lights up the face in such a beautiful way. I use this whether it’s a full face or a minimal make up day and just gives an ethereal look. I don’t know how I went without having this shade in my life for so long. It last really well on the eyes (though I usually prime with the Fenty eyeshadow primer) and all around I’m very, very happy with the palette. Plus it glows in the dark! This is my goth fantasy all wrapped up into one palette. I highly recommend this for anyone who is looking for a cool toned palette or who has been looking at it but wasn’t sure of how it would preform.

Smokey Eyes with $3 Eyeshadow
So this post is a full face ONLY using ELF products. I used a $3 eyeshadow for this whole eye look. I used the bite-sized shadow in “truffles”. I had no idea what I was going to create until I made this cool-toned Smokey eye shadow. The quality is pretty impressive for a 3 dollar eyeshadow. I also am a fan of the concealer and the foundation. Bronzer and blush is also really pigmented and showed up a lot on my skin. I used: FACE: -Jelly pop primer -Flawless satin foundation in “sand” -16 hour camo concealer in “light ivory” -blush in “always rosy” -bronzer in “perpetually tan” -halo glow setting powder in “medium” -highlighter in “moonlight pearls”. EYES: -Truffle eyeshadow palette -Social butterfly faux mink lashes I highly recommend this brand! Especially if you’re on a budget. The quality is pretty shocking for the price. This whole look cost me less that 60 USD! Crazy What’s your favorite ELF cosmetics product? Francesca
