Blushes: liquid or powder?

I love to utilize blushes as a final touch to the face that accentuates the whole mood of the makeup. They come in different textures and consistencies, which, of course, leads to different looks and styles.   Liquid blush: Benefit Posietint Cheek & Lip Stain  benefit - Benefit Tinted Cheek & Lip Stain
What I love about liquid blushes the most is that they allow me to achieve a really natural finish that looks like I am blushing from within, especially paired with this blush’s poppy-pink shade. This product feels really light on the skin, almost non-existent. It stains the cheek, which I like and hate at the same time. What I like about it is that it stays on the cheeks longer than powder blushes, but it is harder to blend because once you apply it onto the cheeks, the colour stays. Therefore, it requires a more careful application. Another downside is that liquid blushes can ruin the base makeup more easily because you have to rub and blend the colour in.   Powder blush: Maybelline Face Studio Master Hi-Light Blush #20 PINK ROSE I find myself always reaching for this blush for a cute everyday look because it just complements my neutral skin tone perfectly by adding a lovely and radiant pink flush to my cheeks! This blush has different shades of pink and a white simmer that acts as highlighter embedded together as one blush to brighten up the complexion naturally. Because it is in a powder form, it leaves my skin with a really soft finish that almost has a blurring effect, and the highlighter really gives the skin a healthy glow which I love! The packaging is also very useful because it includes a mirror and brush in the bottom compartment. I prefer this over the liquid blush because it is easier to build up and blend, and I love the marshmallow finish that only powder blushes can give.

TrinaJI LOVE that liquid blush. Switching to liquid was a game changer for my makeup and I love that it can also be used as a lip tint too. I love having my lips match my cheeks

5 New Year’s Resolutions I’m making this year
Let’s elevate our beauty routines in the new year! My focus for 2021 is stress a little less, focus on what makes me happy, and indulge (whatever meaning that takes on, we’ll see!). And, I'm getting starting with these beauty resolutions... 1. Make double cleansing more of a priority. 
 In 2020, I made a strong effort to ditch wipes. FOR GOOD! I fell in love with the Living Cleansing Balm from Then I Met You and it made double cleansing something I looked forward to. Excited to keep up the effort (it’s really balanced my oily skin) and find new products I love to cleanse with.  Anyone have a cleansing balm they absolutely love? 2. Get in the habit of overnight lip care
 I’m a lip biter. When I’m stressed, I can’t help but put my emotions into biting my lips. I hate the habit and my poor lips suffer. And while lips heal fast, I’ve been looking for products that give them major nourishment and protection against my wicked biting. Milk Makeup’s Melatonin Overnight Lip Mask has brought them back to life, making this more of a ritual as it relates to my nighttime skincare routine I think I can do! 3. Have more fun with makeup
 2020 had me going barefaced often. And while my skin could really renew and show its naturally dewy self...I missed playing around! I’m determined to have fun with my funky colored Skywash’s from Glossier and bright eye liners from Freck. Who knows, maybe I'll even break out the rhinestones. I’m ready to get a little wild.  4. Nourish the brows!
 I’ve been growing them out and while they look FAB, they need some TLC! I rarely fill them in when it comes to my makeup routine and I get them waxed/trimmed only about twice a year. I just got this new eyebrow soap from Lilac Beauty and they have been soaking up all the goodness from castor oil, cocoa butter, beeswax, and coconut oil. Highly recommend this, and taking suggestions for more brow care products!  5. Meditate more, stress less, and take baths
 Beauty meditation is totally a thing. And doing my skincare routine, painting my nails, or even taking a bath just makes me feel like time stops a little. There’s times where I feel it’s my chance to breathe and reflect. Being intentional with my routines like adding in more gua sha tool usage or time with my Nuface is something i’m striving for. But also, I’ve found setting intentions and using bath salts have helped me calm down from a stressful day. If you’re looking to add this into your beauty routine, check out bath salts from HELLEN, they’re life changing. What are your beauty resolutions for 2021? Comment below!

Dewy and flash- friendly Natural Makeup
I’ve always loved fuss free and natural looks so im sharing my go-to no makeup look that you can do when you’re on the go but still want to look purrty🍭 it Cosmetics - it Cosmetics CC+ Cream SPF 50+ one of my fave natural bases as it has no flashbacks, and decent dewy coverage, long-lasting on my oily skin and has spf50! Loving the pump bottle too which is mess- free and travel- friendly. benefit - Benefit Tinted Cheek & Lip Stain i love this color on my medium skin tone and its very long lasting too very apt for mask- wearing times as they won’t rub off easily and this stays rain or shine. A tiny dot goes a loong way too and i use this for my lips and cheeks. ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Pomade i lightly dip my brush for that natural look on the brows and top it with.. PATRICK TA - Major Brow Shaping Wax i could see why this is a hyped product and it stays a long time too. Only con is you need to find the technique that works for you especially on how wet the brush should be to scrape the wax off and deposit the right amount on the brows. innisfree - No Sebum Mineral Powder i use this to set my makeup and seal my undereye concealer. It also doubles as a dry shampoo! L'ORÉAL - Telescopic Waterproof Mascara i see why this mascara is very praised and it’s because it stays on when you want it on and gives that covetable lashes for dayzzz NYX - NYX Retractable Eyeliner i use the beigey color to open up the eyes by putting it on the water line. It glides on well and stays put i have no complaints.. MAC - MAC Eyeshadow in cork. I use this for the nose line and as bronzer on the go. I love that it’s matte and taupey and also long- lasting with the packaging perfect for travel. NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer i use this as my undereye and blemish concealer. For the undereyes, i smudge a little peach cream blush, usually NARS - The Multiple in Siam. Just a litttttllle bit to serve as corrector before the concealer. This also avoids the reverse raccoon 👀 MAC - MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ Finishing Mist this serves both as my priming and finishing spray and i love that it serves its purpose but yet to find a cheaper alternative because im aware that there may be a nice dupe out there.. 🤔 Thats it! Excited to know your no makeup go-tos too!🍬

First of all, I have light skin tone and the photos are taken under natural sunlight. For me, blush is very important in my makeup routine. And rose color blushes are my favourites. 🌹 They help a lot in making me look more energetic with just a little pink color on cheeks. 😊 Here are my rose blushes and my thought of each one. MILANI Rose Powder Blush #Romantic Rose    MILANI - Rose Powder Blush This one is not pigmented. But on the flip side, this blush is very suitable for makeup beginners. It won't go wrong easily. It's light rose color on cheeks. 3CE blush #rose beige  3CE - Take A Layer Multi Pot For Lips, Cheeks & Eyes This one can create a matte and foggy finish on your face. The color is a little bit cinnamon if you only apply one layer, but would be more peachy if you build it up. Rimmel London Lasting Finish Soft Colour Blush #Santa rose  RIMMEL - Lasting Finish Soft Colour Powder Blush This one has a big problem - the powder is not solid enough. It's also not pigmented. I don't quite like the shade either.🤔 Some people think it as a dupe of Clinique's blush #05. But I don't think so. Clinique is definitely way better than this one. Among these three, personally I prefer 3CE. The texture is great and the color is exactly what I want for a rose shade blush.

My GO-TO Blusher For...
My GO-TO Blusher For...
I am really addicted to collecting blusher since it is easy to help one look great. Among all brands of blusher, my favorite brand is NARS since it has so many colors to choose. Now I would like to share you my go-to blushers for different occasions.   NARS SEX APPEAL-for daily life I have persuaded all my dear friends to buy SEX APPEAL and I strongly recommend everyone to try this blusher. The color of this one is similar to pink shrimp and it is really amazing since it can easily make you look healthy and energetic. According to my personal experiences, it is so suitable for almost every occasion. If you are going to some formal occasions such as interviews, this blusher would show your reliability. If I cannot decide which blusher to use, I would apply SEX APPEAL on my face since it is really all-matching. Believe me, it really deserves.   NARS DEEP THROAT-for date I believe DEEP THROAT is the most outstanding blusher for date. It is in peachy pink with slight gold flash which shows female fascination spontaneously. It can enliven the complexion and provide a natural-looking flush that flatters any skin tone. Whenever I apply this one, my boyfriend would praise my makeup for that day.   NARS ORGASM-for party I still remember I screamed with happiness when I received this blusher since it is soooooo suitable for parties. Once applying it on the face, the skin would be highlighted immediately. You may find the color of this one is also peachy pink with golden shimmer which is quite similar with DEEP THROAT, but ORGASM is more high-profile than DEEP THROAT. If you would like to become the queen of the party, this one would be your first choice.

Drugstore favorite 🙏🏼
Drugstore favorite 🙏🏼
Wet n Wild is one of my favorite drugstore brands, although some of their products have been hit or miss for me, when I found something I like it’s a true GEM! I like makeup I can apply with my fingers instead of a brush or sponge so I love creams and stick forms best; I purchased the wet n wild - MegaGlo Makeup Stick Blush in Peach Bums on a whim because it reminded of the Fenty blush stick in shade Yacht a bit and also or Nars’ Orgasm, I feel the three are similar in that they’re peachy, warm shades with the finest shimmer and all look amazing on the skin, but Wet n Wild is considerably more affordable but doesn’t compromise quality. I love that I can apply this on my cheeks as blush and not even need a highlight or as a topper for my blush and it’s so beautiful and glowy. After trying Peach Bums for a while I decided to pick up the shade Hustle & Glow, a more orangey shade without the shimmer but all the glow! Needless to say it looks amazing as well; they’re not as long lasting as I’d like them to be but I think for the price and accessibility these can’t be beaten, definitely a drugstore favorite that I’d recommend for anyone getting started with makeup!

I love a good natural, dewy, almost sweaty sheen on the skin and I feel you wouldn’t expect a powder highlight to give you that dewy effect but trust me, the essence - Pure Nude Highlighter is such a gorgeous highlighter! It’s not an intense highlighter that you’ll catch from across a room, it’s definitely more subtle but still beautiful. You can make it more intense by applying it with your fingers but I like to use a fluffy highlighter brush and let it melt into my skin. It’s definitely one of my favorite highlighters not just from the drugstore but of all time 💘

So thought I should talk about
So thought I should talk about this random amazing product I picked up not that long ago. I actually didn’t know lelabofragrances did skincare for men, they have a shave cream, face cream etc and this gem. It’s a gel bronzer with no shimmer and adds so much warmth. It has minimal ingredients it’s has Tumeric extract and Sunflower oil in it. I like to add this to my moisteriser to add more warmth to my face. It does stain skin a bit so a good wash is needed with hands but it does come off. I just love how versatile this is! Waiting for summer so I can get a bit more heavy handed with it.

Coconut & Rose Oil infused Blush by Pacifica!
Coconut & Rose Oil infused Blush by Pacifica!
When I’m going for a more pinky shade of blush, this is one that I opt for! To start, this Pacifica duo is infused with coconut & rose oil, which make them smell AMAZING! It also gives these shades an extra warmth/glow in my opinion, because they apply so nicely. This blush is a perfect sparkly pink!
