🍉Summer 2020 meets the 60s
Have you ever noticed how HUGE Twiggy’s eyes look in photographs. It’s because of the lashes on her bottom line + the lines they drew over their creases in the 60s. I wanted to do Summer makeup for 2020, even if we’re still in quarantine. But the good thing about this look is how much the eyes stand out~ So it still looks beautiful with a mask. PS: My foundation is covered in my last post on Color Correcting. Check that out if you want to learn more! Not gonna lie, though, this was TOUGH to recreate! Here’s how I used each product~ INGLOT - AMC Eyeliner Gel

NEW PRODUCTS IM TESTING!!
Hello all, I haven’t posted in a while and just wanted to update everyone. I’ve been testing a bunch of new products (so exciting!) and I’m just about ready to give my opinion on them so stay tuned for a new post!!
Halloween Spiderweb Makeup 🕸 🕷
Ok this is Cherie so were all in agreement that Halloween makeup is the best part of Halloween correct? I find it so fun to play around with all types of makeup ideas every year. This is a great time to let your creativity shine through and have fun fulfilling your yearly fantasy of being a ladybug, scarecrow, hippie, Disney character, or just be abstract. This year I've decided to try the trendy spiderweb eyeliner look. I feel this look is a really cute Halloween twist to eyeliner and as difficult as it may look can be easily created. I also love that this trend can be completely your own, I’ve seen some people do spider web butterflies, flare their web out past their brow and even do a full lower lash web. To put my own twist on this I’ve decided to do a neon green under neath to make the spider web pop even more! To start this look you will need to first get an idea of how much web you want on your liner. I decided to go simple and create a smaller web branching off of the wing and going into the corner. After you have a stong idea of the look your trying to achieve you will take out a soft eyeliner pencil to start drafting your look. I am only going to draft out the web however if your unsure about your wing you can sketch that out as well. Once you have your draft take your sharpest liner and begin to create the web. I am choosing to do this with my Danessa Myricks liner in shade Electric Sun DANESSA MYRICKS BEAUTY - Waterproof Cushion Liner . After I will take my inglot gel liner and go over it. INGLOT - AMC Eyeliner Gel I recommend using a gel liner with a super fine detailed brush to help mitigate any errors. If you dont like working with gels then find a liquid liner that has a super thin applicator that can allow you to get fine details. I am using my Morphe MORPHE - M160-1/16 Angled Eyeliner Brush I hope you all try this super fun look this Halloween season! If you do please tag me on Instagram so I can see how your personal touch Halloween 👻
🌸 hailey bieber sparkly pink look
I’ve noticed Hailey Bieber has a lot of pink and mauve makeup looks. Kind of like Lily Collins with red lips or Megan Fox with black eyeliner. I’m a sucker for soft, sparkling pinks. This look also makes eyes look larger. 🌸 STEPS / TIPS 🌸 As usual, I’m skipping the Base step since that’s different for everyone! ￼￼Apply bright pink only to the apples of your cheeks + nose. I’m used to applying blush underneath my eyes. I think it makes looks monochromatic, and helps cover under eye circles. Don’t do that for this look! Her blush really pops on her nose and cheeks- and looks almost doll-like. I use the e.l.f. - Beautifully Bare Blush . $3.99, has lasted me 2 years, and lasts all day. ￼￼Use white eyeliner in lower waterline/lash This will make your eyes look big and doe-like. I used the NYX - Jumbo Eye Pencilin Milk. I don’t like using it as an eye primer. I also think it fades a little on the lash line- But it is very opaque, and comes with a lot of product ($4.50 for 0.18 oz). ￼￼Use a sheer amount of warm pink base on the eyes. I applied primer, set it with clear powder, and then buffed a liiiitle bit of Soft Core from the COLOURPOP - Ooh La La! palette on the lid and lower lash. This will help your shimmer pop. ￼Apply shimmer- And emphasize the inner eye. Apply a single pink shimmer shadow all over the lid, outer crease, and inner corner. I used the NYX - Love You So Mochi Eyeshadow Palette pale pink as the base. Then, I amped up the sparkles with the shade Tickled from the Colourpop palette. I really like the Mochi palette, and I hope Nyx brings back that formula. It’s like a cushion- when you touch it, it’s like you get a thin film of opaque, sparkly eyeshadow. I would buy it again if I lost it. The only con is it get’s dry/crumbly, but it’s still usable. ￼Minimal to no product on the eyebrows! Just brush them up to look model-y! You could do soap brows to keep them in place. ￼Add pink gloss. I combined the lip crayon LAQA & CO. - Cheeky Lip in Humble Bragwith ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Lip Gloss, a more brown/pink gloss. Then, I used a Smith’s eucalyptus balm as clear gloss. ￼For mascara, go for more volume than length! This is up to personal preference. But her lashes are so thick here, it basically replaced eyeliner. I used the essence - Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara It’s gorgeous and thick- a little clumpy, but I solve that problem by pressing clumps between my fingers. ⭐️ What are your favorite celebrity makeup looks? Rihanna and Emily Ratajkowski probably have my favorite looks.
😌Eye Primer = No More Creasing
When I first started doing makeup, I didn’t see the point of eyeshadow primer. But as I kept doing eyeshadow, I realized my eyelids were oily! After a few hours, my eyeshadow would form a weird crease in my eyelid fold. So I finally gave eye primer a chance, and it changed the game. Right now, I used the Wet n Wild eye primer- which only costs $5.49. 🌺 PRODUCT REVIEW: WHO IS THIS PRIMER BEST FOR ? 🌺 wet n wild - Photo Focus Eyeshadow Primer I’ve tried a lot of primers from Too Faced, Nyx, Smashbox and Urban Decay. Some are too thick and crease, while others are more pigmented to cover uneven eye tones. This Wet n Wild one stands out because: ￼￼￼It’s so affordable ￼￼￼It truly prevents eye creasing. ￼￼￼It has a light tinted base (almost translucent), just the right amount to make eyeshadow pop more. This primer has a thin texture, making it comfortable on the eye. It dries in 20 seconds, so you have time to even it out. Honestly, it’s comparable to even some higher-end brands. 💄IN SUMMARY It’s for oily lids that need a brightening base. It’s not for people who want a primer that also acts like a concealer. 🌟 HOW TO APPLY IT 🌟 ￼￼￼Do your foundation / base first. This helps if you want to even out your eye skin tone and cover under eye circles before eyeshadow. ￼￼￼Put a pea-sized amount on your finger and apply to your eyelid. A thin layer will do for the WHOLE lid area. You can even take a little to the lower eye lid if you put shadow there. Using a finger helps this product melt in. ￼￼￼(OPTIONAL) Apply a base eyeshadow color over primer. If you don’t like the whitish undertone to this primer, using a shadow that matches your skin tone will create a nice base for color- While still getting the anti- crease effect. ￼￼￼FINALLY, apply your shadow like normal! 🌼 COMPARISON (PRIMER & NO PRIMER) 🌼 The eyeshadow on my primed eye is sliiightly more vibrant than the other one. But more importantly, it didn’t crease. The photo of my creased eye was taken 3 hours after application. I asked my sister if she saw a difference in my eyeshadow. I didn’t tell her which eye had primer, but she pointed at the primed eye and said it was more vibrant. Also notice the line on my eye crease. Indoors, it wasn’t creasing. But as soon as I stepped outside on a humid day, it started to break down. PS: WOW ring lights make a difference to noticing your makeup blend. Bonus pro tip from this post- use a ring light to see where you can blend more 😅 💐 What primers have you tried ? Are there any tricks you use to get the most of it ?
My Go To Products for Vibrant Makeup
I'm not a brand ambassador for Sugarpill, but they make such great vibrant makeup that I keep bringing them up in my reviews. Sugarpill came out with the Fun Size palette last year. 🐱 This palette alone has filled every need I have to do bright eyeshadow ever. Before this palette, the problem I had with a lot of bright / pastel shadows was that they were chalky. 😢 A lot of them had a white base, so they looked really ashy and draining on my skin. I don't know how Sugarpill did it, but this palette is nothing like that. I have used the shades Cheat Code, Player One, Level Up, and High Score the most. Even with a translucent primer, the color shows up pigmented. ❤️ Some colors, like High Score, don't show up 100% opaque on first application. But that's a good thing because it let's you tone it down to a watercolor pastel look if you want. The colors lasted all day on my eyes without fading. I even wore the orange pink look above to a dance festival, and it stood up through a LOT of spinning. To complete your look, you can opt for a subtle gloss. Or, you can go all out with the lip colors Sugarpill offers. 💄 In the third slide, I swatched their liquid lipstick in the shade "Cubby" on my arm. 🍊 It took only two swipes to reach that vibrancy and it dried down in two minutes. One more thing I love about Sugarpill: the adorable packaging. That may or may not have been what drew me to them... But at least it lead me to great makeup.
Eyeshadow: Liquid or Solid?
I think solid eyeshadow is more popular right now for one reason: you can make palettes with it. And palettes double as both artwork and as makeup. So liquid eyeshadows are a little neglected. But they both have their pros and cons. 🥥 Solid (Powder) Eyeshadow 🥥 ☀️ P R O S My Colourpop Oh La La palette has good quality solid shadows. The mattes and shimmers are pigmented, and they’re not patchy when blending. Plus, the packaging is compact. So you can take every color you could need for touch ups in one compartment. 🌧 C O NS It takes time to apply solid eyeshadow. You have to blend it with a brush, because using your fingers seems to make it stick to your eye more than mix together. You also need to apply primer before solid shadow to prevent fallout. 🍹 Liquid Eyeshadow 🍹 ☀️ P R O S I have a few liquid shadows. A golden urban Decay honey one, Stila’s “Dollish”, and Stila’s classic “Kitten" (comparable to tickled in the Colourpop palette) The first pro of liquid shadow is that for some, you won't need primer. Some formulas dry down quickly, and seem to have primer built in so they won't crease. You also don't need glitter glue- The stickiness that dries down seals in the glitter on it's own. Finally, it’s easy to blend liquid eyeshadow with your fingers. 🌧 C O N S You may have to work TOO quickly with liquid shadow. That makes it harder to blend if you get distracted while doing your look. It also takes more space if you only have liquid shadows to take with you in your bag. ⭐️ The Final Verdict ⭐️ I prefer liquid eyeshadow because I think it's easier to work with. It can also look more glossy than solid eyeshadow. But that doesn't mean I'm going to leave solid eyeshadow alone. When I want to do a complex eye look, I think palettes will meet that need.

I Wanted To Love It
This mascara has been making the rounds on TikTok so that last time I was in Ulta I picked it up. As far as mascara goes I do have really high expectations and Lancôme is honestly a benchmark for me. If a mascara isn’t comparable to LANCÔME - Monsieur Big Mascaraor LANCÔME - Hypnôse Volume-à-porter MascaraI just can’t make time for it. I want volume and I want length from my mascara and I don’t want it to be fussy. I want it quick and easy to apply and I want dramatic lashes in return. That being said I felt this mascara was very “meh”. It was okay, but I don’t see why it’s getting so much hype other than it being $5. It felt like just another drugstore mascara. It was also very wet as in you can very easily get mascara everywhere. Also I found I had to go over and over my lashes to get them separated and coated satisfactorily for me. I was expecting more volume from this product even if it did lengthen okay. I don’t have much flaking at all with this mascara, I do have to say, even without a setting spray. Previously I had used the ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Lash Brag Volumizing Mascaraand it flaked something terrible; so that was a plus. The formula also didn’t irritate my eyes so that was another plus for this product. I thought this mascara was fine. For me it wasn’t much to write home about, but it did an okay job. I don’t hate it, I’m just not compelled to buy it again. I haven’t used this with a lash primer (maybe I’d get more volume using one) I may pick one up to try it, but it’s another step and I’m lazy. For $5, though, it’s a fantastic bargain and is definitely way more affordable than my permanent favorites for sure. It’s a great inexpensive option, but just don’t expect it to outdo some cult favorites like Lancôme.
My 2020 Top 5 💄🍒
PRODUCT : YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Cleanser Refill Youth To The People's Superfoods Cleanser was shockingly reviving, and not in any manner drying, as I'd foreseen because of a portion of the fixings. What I delighted in about the item the most, both due to and notwithstanding of its value point, was its capacity to truly last. I found the jug endured me a while, and a limited quantity makes a significant decent frothy foam when applied to effectively clammy skin. TREND : CeraVe - Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 for Face with Zinc Oxide I’m loving this sunscreen with tinted texture 😍 MY BEST LOOK : i love natural look bc I don’t put makeup on everyday I love to be natural sunscreen on and moisturizer and that’s it . Im good to go . CeraVe - Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 for Face with Zinc Oxide Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer essence - Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara FAVORITE CREATOR ON CHERIE :@D.Bennett@DermDoctor bc I’m very inspired by them and started more taking care of my skin and skincare product with ingredients to . SOMETHING I LEARNED: when I started cherie and learned few things ingredients list , product info and do’s or don’t about my skincare and makeup 💄.
Purple Dreams ✨🌙💜
Hey Cherie Fam! 🍒 I have been doing a lot of reds/greens lately for the holiday season. If I’m not doing those colors, I’m doing neutrals. I just really wanted to play with some color today. I wanted color, but still a somewhat wearable look. I used my Lunar Beauty Moon Spell palette today and played with some duo chrome purples. The shimmers in this palette are incredible. I love the shade Phoebe and Prue! They really are mind blowing. They don’t have too many fall outs either. The browns in this palette are so buttery and pigmented. The shade Winifred blew me away because I expected it to be a light shade, but it packs so much punch. I really love the formula and I’m thinking about picking up the Strawberry 🍓 Dream palette 🤔 LUNAR BEAUTY - Moon Spell Color Palette To achieve this look, I used: • Winifred as a transition shade. I used a fluffy brush and used window wipe shield motions • Kiki to deepen up the winifred shade. I used a smaller and stiffer brush • I applied glitter glue to intensify the shimmer then applied Phoebe all over my lids • I applied Kiki on the outer V to soften up the edges from the lid shade • I applied Winifred then Kiki on the lower lash • With a wet brush, I applied Phoebe in the middle of Winifred and Kiki • I applied Prue on the inner corner and highlight • Winged liner, mascara then lashes. I used HOL in Natalia Lite HOUSE of LASHES - Natalia Lite •For the lips, I used Colourpop lip oil on skinny dip What is your favorite eyeshadow color? Xoxo, Francesca 💋
Indie Brand Spotlight: Lunar Beauty 🌙
Hello beautiful! I’ve been on an indie brand train lately. I have been loving Glamlite cosmetics and today I played with my new Lunar Beauty Moon Spell palette and my Moon Prism highlighter in Jupiter. For those who don’t know, Lunar Beauty is a brand created by MannyMUA. MannyMUA is a YouTuber who is known for being the one of the first men in the YouTube beauty community. The moon spell palette caught my eye and I bit the bullet and purchase it 😬 I love the packaging! It literally looks like a book and the shade names are all the witches from pop culture. Since that Christmas is around the corner, I decided to do a muted green eyeshadow look using this palette and pair it with a classic red lip. The mattes in this palette performed well. They blended easily and were pigmented. They were no fall outs at all. However, I found the shimmer shades a little too dry and underwhelming. They swatched pretty nicely, but I had to layer it on a couple times on my lids. I have to try this palette a few more times because I only used a few of the shimmer shades. Maybe some perform well better than others? This palette retails for $48 USD and contains 15 shades. I don’t think that is too pricy considering you’re getting 15 shades. One of the reasons why I bought this palette because I wanted to support MannyMUA. If it wasn’t Manny’s brand I think I would have passed. Anyway, packaging passed the vibe check and so did the performance of the eyeshadows. If you want to support Manny, I say go for it, but I think these shades can be easily duped. LUNAR BEAUTY - Moon Spell Color Palette To achieve this look, I used: •Bonnie on the crease and lower lash •Marnie on the outer V and lower lash •Mary on the lids •Fiona on the lower lids •Prue on the inner corner. I LOVE this shade. It’s a purple and pink duo chrome. It doesn’t really show up in the photos, but it’s such a great pop of color •KVD vegan beauty tattoo liner in mad brown KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - KVD VEGAN BEAUTY Tattoo Liner •HoL in Natalia Lite HOUSE of LASHES - Natalia Lite •Lips are from Glamlite holiday foodie box and it is in shade red velvet. What is your favorite indie brand? Xoxo, Francesca 💋

I Stan a Fabulous Cut Crease Look🤩
I was waaaaaay late to jump on the "cut crease" train. But, when I FINALLY tried it out...I was in love!!! I created this boldly gold cut creat look with one of my all time fave palletes: 24K Nudes by Maybelline (I used Revolution's Cut Crease Canvas to, well cut my crease...lol). Once I perfected the technique of cutting my crease, it was such an easy look to create. The colors on this pallete are a makeup addict's dream they have a creamy powdery formula. With very minimal pan kick back or fall out during application. And the colors are pigmented AF!! This item has been on the make scene for quite a while. But I hope it will NEVER be discontinued! This is one of my "ride or die" makeup items. Have you tried this pallete? Do you love a good cut-crease look? REVOLUTION - Cut Crease Canvas Eyeshadow Base

Sugar Crystals Violet Voss
This eyeshadow palette is stunning! Without primer it can be a bit pasty, I swatched the colors on my arm and it wasn’t as pigmented as it is when it’s applied on top of primer! But honestly these colors are everything! ❤️ Violet Voss - Sugar Crystals Eyeshadow Palette

Smokey Neutral Tutorial w/Jaclyn Hill Palette
Happy Saturday! I wanted to create a tutorial on a look that is wearable. I know colors and dramatic looks aren’t in everyone’s alley. I also wanted to make a tutorial with a popular palette so majority of you can re-create this look. I LOVE my OG Morphe X Jaclyn Hill palette. This used to be my go-to before ABH soft glam palette. I used this all the time. You can create a day time neutral look to a night time Smokey look with colors. The eyeshadows are so creamy, highly pigmented and buttery. This palette is also beginner-friendly because it is so easy to blend. I heard that Morphe changed the formula on this palette so I can’t speak on the newer ones, but the OG formula is UNREAL. MORPHE - Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette I used: -Silk creme (transition) -Butter (crease) -Roxanne, Hunts and Mocha (outer crease) -SBN (lid) -Obsessed (inner corner and brow bone) -Roxanne, Mocha and Abyss (lower lash) -Essence lash princess mascara -UD liner pencil in zero I am wearing Dose of Colors gloss in Almond Butter I hope you find this tutorial helpful! Do you own this palette? What is your opinion on the formula change? Apparently it went from vegan to non-vegan (the new formula has carmine) Francesca 💋
