Can’t live without my Nudestix for travel!
I used to be on a hunt for a good travel eyeshadow palette. Many palettes are beautiful, but bulky. And I wanted something the size of a card, but with enough colors to let go either creative or natural. I found a solution when I got the Nudestix Magnetic Matte Eye Color in the shade Fig. The idea is simple: You get one natural, brown color, and pack it with any small palette you have full of fun colors! Use your face highlighter for the lighter parts of your natural look and voila! You’ve saved luggage space. 🌟 Even though this eye pencil says it’s matte, it dries down to a nice, satin-like finish that blends into skin. It’s also chunky enough to put all over your lid and blend into the crease for a one-eyeshadow look (my favorite way to use it). 🎨 It dries down quickly, so I like to mix it with primer. It makes it both last longer on my eye, and makes it easier to blend before it settles. In this picture, I buffed it out all over my lid, crease, and lower lash to give my eyes a little emphasis. This product changed the game for me because it made doing eyeshadow while traveling so much simpler. 💅🏼 I love being able to sit down, put on primer, set it, and then mix different shades together. But when I wanted a little definition on-the-go, this pencil made it easy for me to apply with my finger and go. It comes in a lot of neutral toned color including black (Night), gray (Slate), and olive brown (Army). So there’s options for people across skintones. Have you tried any other products from Nudestix? Let me know which ones you like!

All of NUDESTIX cosmetic products are pen-shaped. I really like the pen design as it's skinny and easy to put in your clutch or purse. I've got a lot of their products at Sephora. Let me introduce them to you. NUDESTIX - Magnetic Matte Lip Color I got #Ripe and #Sin. #Ripe is a pumpkin color that is great for autumn. The shea butter in it gives it its moisturizing quality. #Sin is a dusty rose shade and is relatively dry on the lips so you need to moisturize your lips before applying this. It doesn't really hide the lip lines and is not very long lasting. NUDESTIX - Magnetic Matte Lip Color The texture and smell are both similar to the lipstick blush pencil. It provides better coverage and does not dry out easily. NUDESTIX - Eyebrow Stylus + Gel The eyebrow pencil is easy to use, but the gel at the back is a little useless because the color is too dark. However, it is quite lasting and doesn't come off when it's wiped with just a tissue.
Lip Talk - Nudestix
So I have an obsession with not only skincare but also lipsticks. Today we are talking about the Nudestix lip and cheek pencil in shade pulse. This one I brought because I have so many bold coloured lipsticks already and not many any nudes and naturals. First off I love the shade pulse - in the loop I have it one - it’s overpowering. It’s simple and elegant Next off the feel on my lips - it feels so good. Not too liquid not too dry. My lips feel moisturised and light, doesn’t feel like I am wearing a lipstick at all! Recommend definitely, both the brand and shade!

This is a weird time because I simultaneously want to wear less makeup since I’m working from home, but also more—maybe to maintain a sense of normalcy or just because I’m bored? Either way, I’ve never been much of an eye makeup person, but I’ve been reaching for this Kosas - 10-Second Eyeshadow a lot lately. Full disclosure, I only got this because it was 50% off, making it $14–I don’t think I would spend $28 on this. But since the thought of blending a whole palette full of eyeshadows intimidates me, I like the idea of a simple liquid shadow that can allegedly be applied in 10 seconds. This is the color Copper Halo, which is more of a shimmery bronze. Kosas claims that these shadows are buildable, but intended to be worn as a “wash of color.” I’ve never tried to build the color because A. I’m lazy and B. I like the way it looks with just one layer. It’s pretty idiot-proof: I swipe the applicator over my lids and blend it out with either my fingertips or a brush. It makes me look and feel a little more put together without looking like I tried too hard. Sadly, it does tend to crease throughout the day—let it be known that I don’t use an eyeshadow primer, though; maybe that would help? This is a good amount of product for $14, so I would definitely recommend checking it out if they have another sale. I would consider getting another color if they were half off again. In short, I think this is a great shadow for those of us who are intimidated by traditional shadows, or for those who love simple, quick makeup. #CheriePartner
One Makeup Product I Cannot Live Without
💜 Product: The Urban Decay Brow Endowed in Brown Sugar 💜 What is it? A double sided tinted brow gel and primer. The primer gives my brows texture and volume while holding them in place and the tinted gel gives shape, definition, and fills in any patchiness. It’s pigmented enough that it can fill in brow where there is none but not so pigmented that it appears harsh or unnatural. 💜 Why I love it: I’ve always been terrible at doing my brows. They’re kind of weird shape and usually tinted brow gel just emphasizes that and pomades or pencils are too harsh for me or don’t stay in place. This stuff makes my brows look AMAZING and it takes about 60 seconds and very minimal effort and it stays ALL DAY. It’s natural enough that if I’m not wearing any other makeup on my face it still looks natural and not out of place but it’s pigmented enough to fill in patches and define my arch. I like to start with the primer and use that to fluff my brows up then I go in with the tinted gel starting on the arch then moving along to the tail where I want the most product and definition. I end on the front of my brows using whatever product is left on the brush and that’s it!

okay, so I didn’t know if I had anything to contribute regarding mask makeup, BUT I did start doing my makeup a little different AND got complimented on it while wearing a mask, so that qualifies right?! essentially, the name of the game is 👁 e y e s 👁, since that’s the main feature you see when wearing a mask (as you should be!) here’s what I’ve been using lately: MAC - MAC Eyeshadow I start by using my finger to blend in an orange shade from MAC. using a different finger, I take a gold shimmery shade and apply that just to the area above my lashes. it’s not super neat but that’s okay! because then... I use HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Bronzer with a small brush to blend the eyeshadow into my skin! this helps it look really blended and beautiful. it’s such an easy trick and makes the biggest difference. I then line my waterline with this black liner. it’s so silky and drugstore so I’m a super fan! I also make a soft wing and use the sponge applicator on the end to smudge into a thinner line. it kinda got away from me today, but hey. I’m trying my best here, haha. RIMMEL - Exaggerate Waterproof Eyeliner LANCÔME - Monsieur Big Waterproof Mascara finish everything off with this volumzing mascara! I’ve mentioned this quite a few times, it’s a fave. that’s it! pretty simple right? honestly, however you wear your makeup as long as you wear a mask will be GORGEOUS!! stay safe out there! ☁️ #cheriepartner

🇺🇸 happy memorial day weekend! 🌊 explaination I’m an active duty service member in the Navy. Balancing femininity with the confines of a uniform can be pretty difficult at times. A lot of people question how much makeup I am allowed to wear and how/when. And I wear a full face! 🌊 so what can you wear? The general guidelines (lot of paraphrasing here) are that makeup must look natural looking, not be faddish, and not use overly bright colors/glitter. Special occasions do call for special looks, but I tend to wear the same products everyday. 🌊 what I do My goal is to make it look like I’m not wearing makeup even though I probably spent 30-40 minutes on my face that morning. I tend to skip eyeshadow to save time, especially with my hooded eyes. feel free to ask any questions! 🌊 My current daily makeup lineup Primer: Milk MAKEUP - Hydro Grip Primer Concealer: MAYBELLINE - SuperStay Better Skin Concealer Setting Powder: REVOLUTION - Conceal & Fix Setting Powder Blush: Milk MAKEUP - Lip + Cheek Bronzer: Milk MAKEUP - Matte Bronzer Brow Pencil ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Perfect Brow Pencil Brow Gel benefit - Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel Setting Spray Urban Decay All Nighter Mascara Too Faced Damn Girl!

Over-Exfoliated Skin: What To Do NextOver-exfoliation has a plethora of symptoms, ranging from redness and inflammation, tightness of the skin, dryness and flakiness, irritation bumps, rashes, breakouts, and a stinging sensation. With the rise in popularity of at-home chemical exfoliation, it’s easier than ever before to take it a step too far. Everyone is trying out TikTok-famous products like The Ordinary’s AHA 30% and BHA 2% Peeling Solution without an understanding of how strong it really is. Chemical exfoliation is all the rage now, due to its ability to clear up acne, even out the skin tone, and give you a glowy look.
