DIY Microblading? 🤔 🖋
Hey Cherie beauties! I finally got Benefit’s new brow microfilling pen! This has been sold out for the longest time and once I saw it finally available on Sephora, I added to my cart right away. I got my brows microbladed 2 years ago and it’s honestly so life changing! It was worth every penny I spent on it and worth the pain. My brows never looked this good. I was supposed to get an annual touch up this year, but shelter in place hit and my brow artist isn’t taking any appointments and I don’t know when I will get my touch up, but I don’t think it’s any time soon. When Benefit announced this, I was over the moon about it because I can see that my brows are fading a bit. This would be a good product to use until I can get a touch up. I got the shade in dark brown which is the darkest shade and I’m glad I got the it. This may be the dark shade, but I could use a deeper shade. If you’re on a fence which shade to get I would definitely go with the darker shade. This is a subtle change, but makes my brows look fuller. It still looks natural. The applicator is easy to use and you can easily control how subtle or dramatic your brows you want to look. I did a light resistance training sesh last night and this stayed. However, I used a brow gel so I’m not sure if that changes things. My only complaint is it takes some time getting used to so practice makes perfect. Overall I am very happy with this product! It’s such a game changer. You can now get temporary microbladed brows without committing to the actual tattoo. Benefit slayed it again! 😍😍😍 What is your HG brow product? Would you consider getting this? Let me know in the comments down below.

Benefit 💕 Best in Brows
Benefit was a brand I majorly slept on before I started working at Ulta. I didn’t really vibe with them until I started to learn more about the products from the wonderful Arch Experts at my store. The more I tried the more I fell in love with them. Now Benefit is mostly the only thing I use for my brows. I also exclusively go to Ulta’s Benefit Brow bar for my brows. I usually get them waxed and tinted every 5-6 weeks and I’m always happy with them. They can’t really do it now but they brow map your brows and give you a service way better than I was taught in school nor have seen anywhere else. My favorite product in their brow range is the benefit - Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel . Wether it’s an early morning, minimal make up shift or full on glam I’m always use this. It’s a tinted brow gel with little fibers (you can’t see) that attach to the brow hairs to give you color and fullness. When it comes to no make up this makes all the hairs lay down properly and gives some tint so they don’t look weird contrasted to my foundation. When it comes to full beat and my eyebrows are drawn on they give dimension to the hairs to make them look more natural. Not to mention Benefit’s brow range color is far superior to any brand I’ve seen. (Plus their blonde’s aren’t grey!) I also really like the benefit - Precisely, My Brow Pencil Waterproof Eyebrow Definer . You should have seen my brow girl’s face when I told her after months of using the product I realized their was a spoolie on the end 😂 but this has a micro precise tip to easily let you outline and fill in the hairs at the beginning of the brow. This is the pencil I use the most when I do use pencil. A pencil I’m still getting used to is the benefit - Goof Proof Brow Pencil . This has a bigger tip on the end with a waxier formula which is more geared towards those who have brow hairs. The waxy formula sticks better to the hairs and you can easily fill in what you have. For me this is trial and error since I’m not used to the bigger tip but I still think it’s a great pencil. The ultimate clear brow gel is the benefit - Benefit 24-Hour Brow Setter Shaping & Setting Gel . If you have this I need you to go smell it right now. Trust me. It smells amazing! This has a two sided brush (with a long side and a short side to lay down the correct amount of product for each part of the brow) and it lays the hairs right down. My tails can be unruly and this keeps them flat all day. It’s not crunchy but you can feel it in your brows when you wash it off at the end of the day. Your brows are set for as long as you need it with this. A new product for me that I fell in love with was the benefit - Brow Microfilling Eyebrow Pen . This is a felt tip pen with three prongs. This is meant to be flicked up to create a micro bladed effective. By far it’s the best one I’ve used and looks natural.
Slay Your Next Zoom Interview!
Hey Cherie Sisters! 👯♀️ Times are changing and I know interviews are most likely being done via zoom nowadays with covid and social distancing. Here are some makeup tips I have on how to slay your next zoom interview. First of all, being on camera isn’t the same as being in person so how you would normally apply your makeup in person isn’t gonna look the same digitally. ✨ FACE •I normally would opt in for a natural looking foundation. However, since that cameras tend to wash you out, I would go for a medium to full coverage. I used my COLOURPOP - Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Hydrating Foundation •I say the same for concealer. I used my tarte - Shape Tape Concealer •Cream contour and highlight to give your face dimension on screen. I used FENTY BEAUTY - Match Stix Trioin the shade Mocha and Bamboo •Apply blush heavier than normal and go for a bright color. You want something on your face that pops and adding warmth to your cheeks will make you appear you have more life. I used MILANI - MILANI Baked Blush in Berry Amore ✨EYES •To appear wide awake, apply more eyeshadow than usual as well. Normally, I’d skip eyeshadow during interviews, but on camera you might look washed out so applying more than normal contours your eye shape. Use a matte medium brown shade for the crease. •Apply lots of mascara or even natural looking falsies. On zoom, you’re able to see the lighting and how you will appear on screen. Having voluminous lashes will add definition to your eyes and it will make them appear brighter on camera ✨LIPS I love using Rare Beauty - Lip Soufflé Matte Lip Cream in Courage! Applying a lipstick will make you appear more put well together ✨LIGHTING •I highly recommend a ring light. Bad lighting can be super distracting and while good lighting can make you a lot friendlier and more personable. •Make sure the light source is in front of you and not the side or from your back ✨JEWELRY Use subtle jewelry to add a little accent. I added silver earrings and a small black rectangle pendant necklace. ✨HAIR I guess this depends where you work, but if you have an interview for a corporate position, I recommend a low pony or a low bun. •if you prefer to wear your hair down make sure you can see your face clearly and your hair is out of your face ✨ADDITIONAL TIPS •Make you sure you use a professional virtual background. Having a messy background is distracting •Use headphones to cancel out random noises such as the fan and etc. •Make sure you lock your dog in the other room! I definitely made a mistake of not locking my dog and the guy who was interviewing me definitely asked me about his random barks. Here are some tips and tricks for zoom interview. I hope you find this helpful! Francesca 💋

Are These 26$ Lashes Worth it?
Recently I went to Ulta and picked out some quality lashes with the intent that I could get at least 30 wears out of a single pair. I typically get the 5 pack of the ARDELL - Cluster Wispies Demi Wispies and I usually get 2 wears out of each pair- so 10 wears total for around 12$ ($1.20/wear) I picked up the BLINKING BEAUTÉ - Faux Mink Luxe Innovative Lashes for 26$. They have a cotton band that is extremely flexible which makes application so easy! They’re also light in weight and don’t give your eye lids that annoying heavy feeling. These are said to give you around 30 wears which would come out to around $0.87/wear. So cheap!! These are 1000% worth the cost, even if I only get 20 wears. I think I’ve officially converted to higher end lashes and will definitely be giving some other brands a try!! **these are the “Brill” lashes and they would be perfect for people with smaller eyes- they’re also great for a more natural look since they’re not overwhelmingly long and just provide some volume at the base of the lashes. What are your favorite high end lashes?? Eye Look Details NATASHA DENONA - Glam Eyeshadow Palette essence - Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara (lately I’ve been feeling like this formula has changed, it gets much more clumpy/thick on my lashes than in the past) MARC JACOBS BEAUTY - Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner PAT McGRATH LABS - Backstage Eye-Con Kit
My new Products
Bought a couple new products in the last week I wanted to share. I have said multiple times, I feel like with dry skin, I have to sacrifice feeling clean, or leaving my skin feeling stripped. Soap and glory facial cleanser gave me both, my hope is the bodywash will too. Essence Mascara has been on my radar for a while, and I finally purchased it. Tresemme conditioner, I just fell in love with the corresponding shampoo, so I thought I would give it a shot too

Eyeliner that could survive the apocalypse 🌩
Eyeliner is like 50% of my personality at this point. It's my signature look, without it I feel naked. I've been putting on black eyeliner almost every day for the past 3-4 years. The Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner and I have been through everything together. It's probably the only thing that never let me down! 😤💯 When my grandma passed away? It stayed on. When I'd wake up the morning after getting shitfaced? It would still be on. Did it stay on when my ex broke up with me? Of course it did. Is it mental-breakdown-proof? YES! Everyone should own this. Better than the KVD one 100%. Just don't get the micro tip version of it cause it's gonna be harder to flick your wing. stila - Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner

Pumpkin Spice Eyes 🎃 🍁🧡🍂
Hey there! I played with my new warrior palette today from Juvia’s Place 🧡 To be honest, I was going for a smokey brown eyes today and didn’t realize that this is the perfect fall palette. This has caramel, butterscotch and gold shades so I took the opportunity to make another fall eye look 😜 Anyway to get this pumpkin look, I used: 1) Kano as a transition 2) Benin on the crease 3) Mino to deepen the crease. Focus most of the color in the outer v of your eye. 4) Ahosi to buff out the edges and harsh lines 5) Idia all over the lid 6) Bakwa on top Idia 7) Moremi on the inner corner and brow highlight 8)Use Kano, Benin and Mino on the lower lash 9) Add liner and mascara. I used Stila’s all day liner and Essence lash princess mascara 10) Use a white or nude liner to tight line. I used Colourpop’s creme gel liner in Exit. I love the formula of these shadows. I’m upset at myself for not trying Juvia’s anytime sooner. I’m obsessed! I want more! What’s your favorite eye palette? Francesca 💋
ELECTRIC CAKE LINERS ⚡️
These liners are SO GOOD, they’re water activated and glide on beautifully, I love how opaque they are with even the smallest amount of water. Usually water activated liners tend to be chalky and can flake sometimes but these, even without activating them with water, feel soft and almost like a putty in the pans. I love that each stack comes with 3 shades because I wouldn’t want to buy all 6 separately anyways. If you haven’t played with water activated liners; this is definitely a good start! They’re also black light activated which is super cool! ⚡️⚡️⚡️

Quick out the door eye makeup ✨ #Cheriepartner
I work at an office everyday and I try to keep my makeup very basic and easy so I can be out the door quickly! These are the products I use daily and they’re super easy to use and gives me a nice simple look. Step one I select a very basic nude color for the lids and slowly blend out until you get the best gradient color! Second I apply the liner wing and I try to keep it not so thick! Thinner will make your eyes look a lot more natural and more of a “cat eye”. Third I brush my brow with the clear gel to stay out all day and have it looking natural. The better the hold the longer it’ll stay on throughout the day! And that’s all! I don’t try to use any base makeup because I wear a mask all day. So I keep my eyes and brows looking pretty fresh! benefit - 24-Hour Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel let me tell you about this brow setting gel, IT WILL LEAVE IT ON PLACE ALLLLL DAY!! This is the one brow gel I absolutely swear by! NYX - Epic Ink Liner I tried this liner this year and I will be repurchasing it forever! I love the tip! It’s not so stiff but not so flexible either.. making it the absolute perfect cat eye! MORPHE - 35O2 Second Nature Eyeshadow Palette these Shar does from morphe in my opinion are so amazing! They blend beautifully! Most times I add a eyeshadow primer to make the colors pop and last longer, with these shadows I don’t need to apply it, it has the most GORGEOUS pigment! I recommend them 100%! I’d recommend using a very nude base to start so you can get the best blended look.

🌸 hint of pink eyeshadow tutorial 🌸
I’m really boring when it comes to makeup. neutrals are easy and flattering so I tend to gravitate towards the same basic looks. this, however, is a fun and easy way to incorporate a little bit of color without straying too far from my comfort zone! ps. the pink can be substituted for whatever color you’re wanting to experiment with! 1. I start by using some bronzer in my crease. I’m not a fan of a naked eye lid, especially when I go in with a full coverage face, so this is a subtle way to add dimension. 2. using NYX - Jumbo Eye Pencil in milk, I apply a little on the inside corners of my eyes. I’ve found doing this helps the color really pop! 3. I used LANCÔME - Monsieur Big Heart-Shaped Eyeshadow Palette for my pink shade. this palette is perfect for a neutral obsessed person who wants to dip their toes into colors. very pink but with some nice neutrals for transition. 4. to finish the eye look, I used my SHISEIDO - Shiseido Eyelash Curler (HG status) Kaja - Wink Stamp Wing Eyeliner Stamp & Pen pen, and LANCÔME - Monsieur Big Waterproof Mascara I’ve repurchased this mascara a couple times, it’s perfect for maintaining a curl (even in the southern humidity!), adds volume, and lengthens beautifully. probably my favorite waterproof formula ever!! that’s it! super super easy. anyone can do it!

Small eye makeup look
Hello guys, I have small eyes and big face. I tend to do my makeup differently to enhance my eyes and make my face look smaller. I highlight inner corner of my eyes and try to use lighter colour eyeshadow in my inner corner. Don’t drag down the eyeshadow try to make angular shape upwards. Use tape it helps to create that shape. If you like using eyeliner make a thin line. I don’t like to use fake lashes as it hides my eye look so if you want to use eyelashes select thinner one. Use white eyeliner to make your eyes look bigger.
🚨 BLACK OWNED BUSINESS ALERT 🚨 I sucked at putting on lashes for years. No matter how many tutorials,tips, different lashes or glue I used. I was told about this company through an instagram post. Opulence MD Beauty is a company owned by a black female eye surgeon. All of the lashes are magnetic, and the prices vary. Also you will have to purchase the magnetic adhesive separately. Below are pics The first pair I purchased were called the “heiress”. Ordered them right after my birthday(6-27) and I got them 3 days before my trip to Chicago (July 17). Wore them, and fell in love with how easy they applied. When I came back I found out Opulence had a sale: get the freedom lashes for free,just pay 11.00 for shipping and handling which was cool. I received my lashes 10 days later. My review: 9.5 out of 10 Why only 9.5? 1) Because the heiress lashes only have 3 magnets. Meanwhile the freedom lashes has 5. Better coverage if you ask me. 2) The adhesive. The pic with my hand shows the adhesives. The top one is the original one I purchased with the first lashes(heiress). The middle is the second one I was given along with the freedom lashes. Personally love the second one. It has better grip. The third stripe is my elf pen eyeliner with the second adhesive. Both of them work very well together. Tried this with both pairs of lashes and both adhere much better with the second and third stripe. But this is all my opinion, and experience with the company. All of the cases the lashes come in have a magnetic strip to re-magnetize them and help keep their shape. One more thing. I put in the wrong address for the second pair. Emailed the company the mistake and they fixed the problem with no questions. Please try them out. I highly recommend them. Follow them on instagram: @opulentlashlife Sorry for the long review.
