My Favorite Falsies! 👑 ✨ 💖
I am OBSESSED with falsies! This is going to sound extra, but I honestly feel like a different woman when I put them on. They complete a makeup look and can make it go from 0-100. They are an essential part of opening your eyes and enhancing the best features of your eyes. You can go for natural ones, dramatic, attention grabbing and whatever mood you’re feeling! In fact, I love them so much that I actually used to invest in lash extensions. I have been using falsies since I was in high school so I have experienced good falsies and bad ones too. I have almond shaped eyes and I understand that it could be overwhelming to find the right falsies for your eye shape...this is one of the reasons why I LOVE House of Lashes. They have an eye shape guide and recommend which lash styles are best for you. My top three favorite lashes from this brand are: Au Naturale, Bouidoir Lite and Demure Lite. 1) Au Naturale I go for these often. They are wearable for any occasion. This gives a “your lash but better guide”. I also use this when I create a dramatic look, but don’t want to over power it with lashes. 2) Boudoir Lite This has a dense center. They are dramatic, but soft enough. I go for these when I go out 3) Demure Lite These are also soft and more on the natural side with an oomph. This helps open my eyes and emphasize any eye look. House of lashes are a bit on the mid range price. However, ELF and Ardell are also my fav falsies that are on the affordable side. My favorite “your lashes, but better” falsies is the Ardell Wispies. These look sooo natural! I use it as an alternative to my Au Naturale. Another falsies that I always grab for especially if I want the attention stealing is the ELF Social Butterfly. These are faux mink lashes and did I mention they are $3?! Ardell and ELF are very affordable, but HOL falsies are much easier to apply so if you’re a beginner, I would suggest you invest in HOL. It’s worth it! Lashes can be reused 15+ times depending on how you care for them. Here are my quick step by step for falsies: 1) Measure the lashes to your eyes and cut to your desired length. Most falsies are large so always measure it to your eye first. 2) For easier application, grab one of those lash glues with wand. Apply extra glue on the corners of the lashes because these tend to come off easily 3) Wait 30 seconds for the glue to become tacky then grab your tweezers to apply falsies closest to your lash line. 4) Hold it until it is fully glued to your natural lashes 5) This step is optional, but apply mascara to diffuse your falsies to your natural lashes. This will give you a natural result 6) Apply eyeliner or use a dark eyeshadow to hide the lash band. 7) Voila! Then enjoy! It took me a while to get this down. I’ve been applying eyelashes for more than 10 years and even to this day, I’m still not the best at it. Just keep practicing! What is your favorite falsies? Xoxo, Francesca 💋 #CheriePartner

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

🗣DON'T BE AFRAID OF FALSIES (PT. 2)
Psst... check out part one if you haven't already! I go over choosing the perfect lash style, application, & application tools. In this final part, I'll be discussing proper lash care & removal! Let's talk about removing your lashes.... I cannot express this enough: BE CAREFUL. Your eyes are a very sensitive, fragile area so when removing well... glue... from your eye you need to take precautions! Here are some helpful tips and tricks to help you out. ￼DON'T PULL! It sounds scary but I promise it's not if you practice safe removal, you can essentially wax your lash line if you aren't too careful. So be gentle with your eye area. Also, you could tear the lash band & lose a good pair of lashes. ￼USE OILS! Oil based cleansers & micellar water can help to dissolve the leftover glue to prevent any bald spots in your lashes. Lashes should pop clean off once the glue is broken down. Now we can move on to lash care.... In part one I said you can hold onto a good pair of lashes for weeks at a time if you're doing it right. These are my tips for keeping lashes in tip top shape. ￼REMOVE EXCESS GLUE! For this step, you can use tweezers to grab onto remaining glue fragments. Use a gentle touch to ensure you are grabbing the glue & not the band itself. ￼CLEAN LASH HAIRS! Micellar water + spoolie work perfectly to cleanse the lash hairs without losing curl or the hairs themselves. This step will remove excess mascara & debris caught in your lashes throughout the day. ￼GENTLE DRYING! Lay your lashes onto a paper towel and gently pat the lashes dry, allow them to air dry & your done! ￼CLEAN STORAGE! We have all seen what the inside of our makeup bags look like, you wouldn't want to put that on your eye right? So, why do that your lashes? Reuse lash boxes to store lashes away until next use. They'll thank you by remaining full and intact. Cheers to any false lash beginners & to the experts, I hope you learned something! Thanks for reading ❤️ #cheriecreator
🗣 DON'T BE AFRAID OF FALSIES! (PT. 1)
We all start somewhere I'll tell you that! It's okay if you don't know how or where to start with false eyelashes, adding in your own form of lash extensions can seem scary but that's what I'm here for. So, let's talk about falsies! CHOOSNG YOUR PAIR OF LASHES: My thumbnail includes a range of three lash types — natural, full, & dramatic. I say take baby steps lashes like: EYLURE - False Eyelashes Wispy Light No. 117 are a great beginner lash! They have a thin band & are naturally curved to shape your eye. These are perfect for accentuating your natural lashes! HOUSE of LASHES - Demure Lite are a wispy but full pair of lashes that i swear by! The HOL lite collection is wonderful for lashes that are good for a night out & a day at work. Dual purpose & easy to use. Sold at TARGET! KISS - Lash Couture Triple Push-Up are a dramatic, long, & fluffy pair. These are my night out lashes (I actually wore these lashes to Coachella, they held up!) The band is thicker to hold everything but again, you don't need to start at this level if you aren't ready! LASH TOOLS: These are my personal tool choices - ￼￼￼￼￼￼Lash Glue (my recommendation: KISS - Ever EZ Lash Adhesive this glue has a brush tip applicator & clear finish, also latex free) ￼ ￼￼￼￼￼￼Tweezers/Lash Applicator (more precise application than just hands) ￼ ￼￼￼￼￼￼Lash Curler (my lashes grow straighter you can skip this tool if you're blessed with curly lashes 😭) ￼ ￼￼￼￼￼￼Scissors (for trimming lash band) APPLICATION: ￼￼￼￼￼￼Wrap lash band around your finger to curve lashes — more comfortable fit on your eye ￼ ￼￼￼￼￼￼Before applying, measure to eye & trim so lashes will fit eye shape ￼ ￼￼￼￼￼￼Personally, I apply mascara and curl my lashes before but that step is personal preference ￼ ￼￼￼￼￼￼Allow ANY type of lash glue to dry down for at least 30 secs before applying — the drier glue will allow for better adherence, tackiness is key for lashes to remain in place for as long as possible; add extra glue at lash ends to secure corners; you CAN apply glue to your actual lash line if you feel comfortable or with products like KISS - Felt Tip Glue Liner Lash Adhesive ￼ ￼￼￼￼￼￼Position mirror below you (as to look down at it) while applying so lash can lay flat instead of fighting off your natural lashes ￼ ￼￼￼￼￼￼After applying, use fingers on tweezers to pinch natural & false lashes together — putting them together again makes lashes look more realistic ￼ ￼￼￼￼￼￼Push lashes upward to maintain curl PART TWO WILL BE ON FALSE LASH CARE! I will be sharing some tips & tricks to maintain your false lashes for multiple uses. My lashes have stayed with me for weeks at a time if I can do it, so can you! If you wanna find out how follow me & stay tuned. Hope this helped out any beginners ❤️ #cheriecreator
Soft Rose Gold Glam 🌹 💘
Hey there! I did a dramatic purple cut crease yesterday using JSC’s blood lust palette so I thought I would tone it down today and play with rose tones while keeping it soft. I used one of my favorite palettes of all time which is the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill palette. I swear I’ve done numerous looks using this palette. I have the OG 2017 version and it’s still bomb dot com 💣 even years later. I love playing with the eyeshadows because of the texture. It just feels nice, creamy and buttery and they blend like a dream! I’m holding on to this baby because even if I want to replace it and purchase a newer one, the formula isn’t the same. The ones that are currently out in the market are not vegan and contains coconut oil. It isn’t bad, but it just isn’t the same. Morphe totally reformulated it and I’ll be forever upset. This look is relatively easy to do and to get this look I used: 1) M.F.E.O using windshield wiper motions. I used my Sigma E35. Any fluffy crease brush will do. 2) Using the same brush, I added Butter on my crease. 3) I applied Mocha focusing on the outer corner of my eye. I used my Sigma E25 brush 4)Using the same brush, I dipped into butter again to blend out mocha 5)I applied mocha on my lower lash 6)I used Central Park to deepen the outer crease. I used my Sigma E30 brush. Any pencil brush will do 7)Using my fingers, I applied Little Lady all over my lids 8)Then I placed Sissy the mid lid 9)I placed Beam on my inner corner and brow highlight 10)I used brown eyeliner and created a subtle wing. I used Colourpop BFF liner - Grande 11)I applied 3 layers of mascara using my favorite mascara ever which is Essence Lash Princess Mascara 12)This step is optional, but I wanted an extra oomph on my lashes so I added falsies. I used House of Lashes in Au Naturale MORPHE - Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette The cover photo is taken by my Sony A6000 and the second photo is taken by my iPhone X. I wore this look to run errands today and that was fun. I can’t wait to see you try this look 😘 Xoxo, Francesca 💋

Glitter Primer Review 💋
I’ve been asking around “what glue/primer are you using for your glitters??” for what seems like weeks!! I finally got my hands on this NYX - Glitter Primer and I absolutely love it after only two uses!! 🗣It sold me during this application👆🏾👆🏾👆🏾 I used their ,NYX - Vivid Brights Eyeliner in vivid halo, topped it off with a matching yellow shadow, I then added black liquid liner underneath. After it dried, I proceeded with the glitter primer. When I tell y’all not a lick of my makeup came off, that’s what I mean. The best way I can describe it is, It goes on as a smooth over coat. Period. 🗣NO SMEARS. I’m happy I purchased this product. You should too if you haven’t.

Using an eyeliner as an eyeshadow base
When I bought e.l.f. - Cream Eyeliner I didn’t like it as an eyeliner. (Too creamy and it did smug, if I remember correctly.) It has been almost two years and I think that is when it would have been the best time to use it as an eyeshadow base since right now it is a little drier than I would like. How I like to use it: Using my e.l.f. - Eyeshadow "C" Brush , I dip directly into the pot and brush the eyeliner to from the center of the eye, up and outward. Make sure it is evenly spread across the lid. Then grab the eyeshadow of your choice on the same brush. I usedMAYBELLINE - Expert Wear Eyeshadow and worked my way for the inner corner to the outer one. Make sure to cover wherever your put the liner down. Note: I would only use this for darker eyeshadows or ones with the same tone. #CheriePartner

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.
