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

Clean Smokey Green + More Eyeliner Tips! ❤️
OOOOPH. LOVE THIS EYE! I had this on my phone for awhile and I couldn’t get over how crrrrrrisp but Smokey it looks! For this look I used VISEART - Grande Pro 3 MAC - Pro Longwear Fluidline ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette For my eyeshape, I found using flat brushes that also had the ability to blend gave the best results. Round blending brushes ended up taking the eyeshadow up too high to my brows! I used SIGMA - E54 Medium Sweeper Brush to build up color & SONIA G - Sky Eye Set (the jumbo blender) to occasionally blend out the outer edges of the shadow Eyeliner Tips: The most interesting part about this was how I went about the eyeliner and had it coming out a success! I did the usual stamping routine(look back on a previous post about eyeliner). However, I made a minor change to to how I started. Technique-wise I lined the tail first with my eyeshadow so the edges of them align with each other and then stamped downward towards my eye and then stamped the rest of my eye. Usually I would start fattening the tail first rather than have it as a second priority, but this can be problematic. With a smokey eye it’s really easy to accidentally overdue the eyeliner and then your Smokey becomes a black eye 😂 By first taking a really thin brush to create an alignment, you get a crisp line that doesn’t require the tape method and it sets you up for how much eyeliner would complement your eye! This is especially useful if you want to create a long tail but don’t have as much lid space to do it! I used the MORPHE - M160-1/16 Angled Eyeliner Brush for this look! Hope you all are having a wonderful day! Sending love and happiness your way! 😄❤️
Best Eyeliner Brushes For Eyes With “Extra” Skin
For my eyes it was difficult to find a brush that wouldn’t have a “skipping” effect or the hairs splitting, causing an accidental extra line that just ruins your eyeshadow. Eyelids are delicate spaces and mine had the type of skin where it would drag with the brush in an inconvenient way. Here are some tips and examples of brushes that I find are good options for those who have hooded eyes, have trouble with drawing a crisp line or eyes with a little extra skin! 1. A Firmer and Smaller Brush is Great for Precision MORPHE - E38 Bent Liner Brush A firmer synthetic brush that is short and dense will provide the most accuracy in pin-pointing where you want to place the liner. Dense brushes won’t skip as much as flimsy brushes. Think about it, if you use a brush that generally has more movement and your eye has delicate, extra skin and moves with everything you put on it, you might encounter more “empty” spaces in between your eyeliner. I love the E38 for overall drawing. It’s not too thick overall and definitely more on the firm side in terms of density of the brush. The bent portion and thinness of the brush handle allows you to get into those nooks and crannies without your hand or the handle getting into your line of vision. It may take some practice with this one to get the tail light and crisp because the end of the brush is more rounded. However, it is absolutely not impossible! 2. An Angled Brush is a Beginner’s Best Friend! MORPHE - M160-1/16 Angled Eyeliner Brush For those of you who don’t know where to start with brushes, an angled eyeliner brush will always be beginner friendly. Find a brush that has the qualities that we listed on the first tip(firm, semi short), but make sure it tapers to become super thin toward the end. The thicker the end of the brush is, the thicker your line is going to be. The longest point of the bristles help create a crisp wing. All you need is a flick of the wrist! I love this brush for stamping in liner in areas where there’s more movement to the skin. Stamping is a fool-proof method that will provide a clean, straight line everytime! It’s not super great for stamping on powder as eyeliner because of how small and dense the brush is. Therefore you won’t get a really “blended” or smoked out look. Keep that in mind while you’re shopping! 3. Thicker Angled Brushes are Great for Stamping in Powder SIGMA - E68 Line Perfector I’ll admit that this isn’t really a top tier recommendation because I only use it for one primary purpose. I find the end of the brush is too thick and a hair too flimsy for my small-set eyes. Great for larger-set eyes though! This is the brush I would recommend using for stamping on powder on top of gel liner if there are missing spaces or if you want to set the liner in place. Sometimes I use it to create a soft smoky effect since the bristles are more flimsy. Happy Brush Searching! ❤️

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
