👩🎓 easy grad look tutorial!
If you just graduated, 🎉 congrats grad 🎉!!! If you just want to try this look, you’re welcome here too! Fun fact: this is actually my high school graduation gown. I graduated from university after, but I always liked my grad look. I did one simple thing to make it easy and cute~ 🌺 Complement your eyeshadow to your gown 🌺 I remember being nervous to do my own makeup for graduation. I felt like a makeup bby who didn’t know how to blend well. So I looked up what colors complemented my gown in color theory. And Peach 🍑 went great with green 🍃 So I used matte peach shadow to color block it with my gown. ⭐️ SHORT TUTORIAL ⭐️ *Skipping the base, brow, and primer steps since that’s different for everyone!
Use your finger to pack the shadow pigment on your eyelid.Yes, use your (washed, clean lol) finger instead of a brush. It keeps more of the pigment in my experience, and builds faster. You can gently bring leftover pigment to your crease. At this point, it’ll look a little unblended.
Now you can blend!Blend your shadow like normal. I used the tiniest amount of brown to deepen the crease and line the lower lid. But I made it subtle so the eyeliner could pop in the next step.
Line your eyes (with an angled brush to help)I struggle to get liquid eyeliner crisp and thin. So I use an angle brush to help. When you do the feline flick, don’t complete it with the foam your liner comes with. Use an angle brush to drag it out before its completely dry. And lift your brush while you do it slowly to make it go thinner n thinner.
Use the same highlighter for browbone and cheeksSince the shadow is matte, go for all the sparkles you want on this one! ✨ Using the same shade makes you finish and tie the look together faster.
Use liquid lipstick, and blot it > applying from the tubeWant something that lasts long but feels comfortable? Use your fav liquid lip formula and apply it to your finger. Then blot it on your lips evenly. It’ll make it more comfortable, softer, and still last for the ceremony. 🍑 PRODUCTS USED 🍑 URBAN DECAY - Game of Thrones Eyeshadow Palette

My everyday makeup look ❣️
I love doing different looks but this is definitely one of my go-to looks for its simplicity yet clean finish ♥️ Here's the list of products i swear by and have used for 2+ years & will continue to repurchase. And i'll also detail how i achieve those fuller lips!: ✨ F O U N D A T I O N ✨ Charlotte Tilbury - Airbrush Flawless Longwear Foundation • I have gone through many foundations but none work as well as this one for my acne, for its texture, matte - natural finish, application and wear, plus many other pros! • It's medium - full coverage, but you can easily accomplish a light coverage with it ;) • I use a damp REAL TECHNIQUES - Miracle Complexion Sponge > the beauty blender because it has lasted me WAYY longer, it's easier to clean and doesn't soak up as much of the product! (Clean it after + before each use) 👁 EYES 👁 the Balm cosmetics - Nude 'Tude Eyeshadow Palette • Guys i've been using this palette for 8 years! It's brilliantly addictive and affordable. The colours are so pigmented and natural looking...i need to buy a new one cuz i'm low on my fav colours lol P.S. SECRET TIP: I use two of the browner shades as eyebrow liner/shadow using a thin brush and nobody can ever tell it's eyeshadow! Plus people always compliment me on my fuller brows 🥺 been doing that for 8 yrs ;) (it's this eyeshadow shhh...) ✍🏻 LINER ✍🏻 ALMAY - Almay Liquid Eyeliner • God sent. Literally one of the best drugstore- and just in general- eyeliners that i've ever bought. It's highly pigmented, cheap, long-lasting (weirdly tear proof? and i have watery eyes 👀 💦) • Easy to use, clean off and use for different line sizes! 🐍 L I P SSSS 🐍 Alright ik the moment you've been waiting for... How I achieve them plump lips: 💄 STEP 1: L'ORÉAL - Colour Riche Lipcolour • HOLY GRAIL! Beautiful texture, non sticky- almost feels like a high-end lipstick. And oh my god the COLOUR • Choose the one that matches best to your lip colour but slightly darker, apply lightly, then: 💄 STEP 2: BITE - Cava Lip Collection • Slightly darker than your lipstick • Lightly over-line your lips near the cupid's bow and on the very bottom of your bottom lip. ( Remember, you're not lining your entire lip just the tips ) 💄 STEP 3: MAC - Strip Down Nude Lipglass (smells so gooood) • GLOSS to accentuate the areas you want light to catch AKA the middle of your lips! • Apply on the area just below the lip liner on your top lip, and the middle area above your bottom lip liner And that's it :) That's how I achieve my simple everyday makeup look! Approx: 20 min to do ❣️
BEST matte lipstick!
Product: Too Faced matte liquid lipstick. It has a lightweight, long-wearing formula that glides on like lipgloss but dries to a matte finish. It comes with an angled applicator that allows for precise application. The formula is also infused with avocado oil and vitamin E to keep lips hydrated. My thoughts: I bought the shades Sell Out and Drop Dead Red and I am completely obsessed with both! They are so pigmented and look so good on! I don’t usually wear matte lipsticks but I heard great things about this lipstick so I decided to give it a try. The first thing I noticed was how smoothly and evenly the lipstick applied. I was also pleasantly surprised when I noticed that the formula was extremely hydrating...even when the lipstick dried and became matte, it still kept my lips hydrated and not cracked like other matte lipsticks. It took about a minute for it to dry completely and there was little to no transfer. It lasted on my lips for the entire day and I only felt the need to reapply once throughout the day. Overall, I would recommend this lipstick to anyone who’s looking for the perfect hydrating matte lipstick.
The Best and Mehs of Too Faced
I am unashamed to love kitschy packaging. So over the years, Too Faced definitely drew me in. Most of their products have been wins for me, but I did find one dud + a trend. Too Faced - Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette Not every shadow in this palette is buttery or easy to blend (i.e. Cherry Cordial and Black Forest orest Truffle). But the nude colors are wonderful. Salted Caramel is still one of my favorite one-shadow colors of all time, and I use Semi-Sweet to fill my brows every day. Too Faced - Melted Matte-Tallics Liquid Lipstick (Shade: Sell Out) It has a very thin texture, and dries down super fast. it lasted through my 9-5 work day, surviving both lunch and coffee. It only started to break down at the end of the day, making it look like blotted lipstick. But for its opacity, it's definitely a fav. Too Faced - La Creme Mystical Lipstick (Shade: Pink Chocolate) A very balmy lipstick that goes on evenly and almost glossy. Smells like delicious lemonade, and the sturdy packaging makes it feel royal. Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara I have tried a lot of mascaras, and this one stands out for making lashes look feathery. The wand makes it easy to separate lashes evenly, and the thick formula makes them look thick from the root. Out of all these products, I only had one 'meh.’ Too Faced - Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette Now discontinued, but I think it follows a trend in Too Faced. Just like the Chocolate bar, the dark matte shades with sparkles are hard to blend and build up. The sparkles also seem to blend away... The brown shades like Peanut Butter perform well, but if you're going to get a product with Too Faced's strengths, might as well get an all nude palette.
Summer Glam Tutorial w/ Morphe X MannyMUA
✨SWIPE RIGHT FOR SWATCHES✨ This is my first eye tutorial so please bare with me 🤪 This is a super easy look. I only used 3 brushes. I used Morphe X JH32 for the crease, JH41 for lower lash and JH39 on the inner corner and brow bone. For the eye shadows, I used: -Sophie (transition) -Spell bound (crease) -Gamenta (crease layer) -Howl (outer corner and lower lash) -Aries (all over lid and lower lash) -Nova (inner corner +brow bone highlight. Also used as cheek highlighter) I am actually surprised by this palette. I didn’t expect much from it because it is Morphe and these didn’t swatch well. Morphe is also a hit or miss for me, but all shadows blended well. It is not the most pigmented, but it is buildable. Aries is a beautiful shade and my favorite out of all the shades in the palette. For 20 USD, the shadows perform well and I like how there are 2 highlighter shades. The highlighters isn’t the most blinding, but perfect for a subtle everyday look MORPHE - Morphe X Manny MUA Glam Palette
KYLIE COSMETICS-Lip Gloss
Sometimes you just gotta step out and try bold colors! I have been messing around with reds for a while and wanted to try my hand at blending some others in like yellow and orange. I like this look but still need to work on a cut crease situation......I did however want to spotlight my favorite liquid liner. Araceli - Ojos Perfectos Liquid Eyeliner A felt tip liquid liner that does not dry out over eyeshadow!!!!! Love this stuff! It is pricey for eyeliner running at $40. But I do love it. Nice precise lines and is super easy to work with! SEPHORA COLLECTION - Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick The lip stain I am wearing is by Sephora. The color is #96 a red tone. And this stuff has some serious staying power! It’s stuff a vibrant lush liquid. It also smells very yummy 😋 slightly sweet. When it dries it does not get super cracked and dry looking. Stays this nice for hours!!!!
SEPHORA COLLECTION-Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick
I never thought I would wear yellow eyeshadow...like EVER, but I HAD to try Colourpop’s “uh-huh honey” palette. At first I thought it was a dupe for UD’s naked honey palette, but I compared both and this is a true yellow eyeshadow while UD is more of a bronze gold/honey toned. 2 palettes are completely different. This look is super simple. I only used 2 brushes (Sigma E35 and E27) and 5 eyeshadows. I used: On beehave (transition and lower lash line) Stinger (crease ) Buzz kill (inner+ outer lid, lower lash line) Sunburst (mid lid) Palooza (mid lid on top of sunburst) Colourpop bff liner in “grande” I have Kylie’s lip gloss in “literally” This is a beautiful palette and it is subtle enough to be used for an everyday soft summer glam. What do you think of yellow eyeshadows? Francesca

Eye makeup look with a pop of blue
I went to a wedding last weekend and I decided to wear a baby blue satin top and with that I decided to add some blue to my eyeshadow. I was a but nervous about it because I’ve never actually worn blue eyeshadow before and wearing it for the first time to a wedding- it had to look good! I actually really liked how it turned out 😇😇 I used the shade spoiled from an old LE palette (i dont even remember the name of it) but the shade was called Intense Gaze- a metallic rusty pink with brown tones. I followed the outer lid and crease with a metallic silver shade CHIC. Then I applied the blue. First shade ai applies to the outer lid, called Aqua ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Eyeshadow Single and followed up with Venice ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Eyeshadow Single Then I finished with the inner corner with shade Pink Champagne #ABH single shadows - Pink Champagne[products]#[FiveStars] which is a glittery metallic pink shade. Its found in the palette pictured here. I love all ABH shadows, they last long and are really pigmented. They look beautiful on and are basically true to their colour on the lid, especially if used with an eyeshadow primer. #cheriepartner
