Il Makiage got it right!!!
So after seeing this foundation on my feed for well over a year I caved and took the plunge for the 2 week trial (truthfully my bestie gave in first and i had to try it too, lol) The fist shade they sent me was way too lignt but their customer service is on point and after sending them a selfie in natural light they sent me an almost perfect match. This picture was taken on my day off after playing with my toddler, cleaning house, frying chicken for supper and wearing it for over 8 hours. I snapped this right before I did my nightly skincare because I was amazed at how beautiful it still looked. I'm going to use it again tomorrow when I head back to work and have a 12 hour day booked. If anyone is invested I can post again and see what happens after that 112 hour mark!!

Everyday Minimal Makeup!
My everyday, minimal makeup! For days when I don't really want to look like I'm wearing product, but still want to cover up general discoloration and just look a little more put together. On most days I just put some concealer on the places where I need it, so you can still very much see my "real" skin poking through. I do almost always color correct under my eyes though!

Full Face of AFFORDABLE MAKEUP❤️
Products: ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Pomade ok, this pomade is amazziinnnggggg. My eyebrows have never looked so incredible before. It’s really rich and creamy. Glides right along w ur eyebrow brush. A face isn’t a face without eyebrows [$21 on Amazon] L.A. Girl - HD Pro Concealer this concealer is everything. When I tell u this concealer can conceal bags and everything else....this shit is amazing [$3.74 on Amazon] MAC - Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 Foundation ok so about this foundation.....I got this foundation from my mom and it’s in the shade NC50 (I think that’s the shade). It’s kinda dark for my face. But I normally mix it w IL MAKIAGE - WOKE UP LIKE THIS and I can get the perfect shade. [$32.8 on Amazon] MAYBELLINE - Facestudio Master Contour V-Shape Duo Stick ok so this is my first time actually using both sides of a contour duo stick. They did an ok good, the concealer color was light and blended in well and the contour color was deep and creamy [$12.99 on Amazon] BLACK RADIANCE - True Complexion Contour Palette I’m still getting used to doing a full face and I’m figuring out what are my colors. Black Radiance gets it right every time. My face has never looked so snatched before. [$6.87 on Amazon] NYX - Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray [$8.47 on Amazon]
Il Makiage IL MAKIAGE - WOKE UP LIKE THIS was all over my Facebook feed and I love foundation....sooooo, yes, I caved and bought it. Their marketing is pretty compelling. I had to try for myself. I currently use Lancôme Teint Idole and mix in a bit of Sheiseido Perfect Refining Foundation. It’s a pretty awesome mix that I’ve stuck with for years. With that said, I’m always open to trying new products. Details..... Il Makiage asks a series of questions to match your color. It comes with a foundation brush and specifically says not to apply it with your fingers. That’s how I apply my foundation so the brush was new for me. The verdict? I like it but I don’t think I’m in love. The color is really good. The brush applies it nicely. What else can I say? It didn’t blow me away and I was really hoping it would. It has a nice medium coverage and it looks pretty smooth and natural. I guess I was hoping I’d be a little more glow-y and fresh looking. Maybe I’m expecting too much?? Disclaimer, I’m almost 44 so I’m not sure if any foundation can give me back my perfect skin of the 20’s and 30’s. What do you think? Is the color match good? Does it look like I’m wearing foundation? I’m on the fence to keep it or send it back. What else is on my face? Skincare - Herbivore Pink Cloud cleanser, Herbivore Rose spray, Clarisma Cali Dreaming Cream Moisturizer, The Ordinary Caffeine eye serum, Rooted Sensitive Brightening Eye Cream, Hourglass Veil mineral primer. Makeup - Il MakiageIL MAKIAGE - WOKE UP LIKE THIS , Sephora cream concealer on a couple spots, IT Cosmetics bye bye undereye concealer, Nars Orgasm blush, Covergirl Total Tease mascara, Almay eyeliner in copper, tiny bit of Bare Minerals mineral veil on my tzone, Medicine Mamas Bee Magic on lips, clear wax on brows.
2020 Summer “Sweet Treats” Themed Makeup
For those of us who live in the Southern Hemisphere, Summer is just around the corner, and things are already heating up, and it’s not just the weather, honey! In the next few months, half the world will be heading into springtime, and that brings fresh fashion, bright colours, and fierce makeup with it. Here’s how you can create a quick, easy, “sweet treats” themed makeup look to match your shining summertime personality. Complexion Work: For my base makeup, I used REVOLUTION - Fast Base Stick Foundation in shade F3. I concealed with the help of REVOLUTION - Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer in shade C1. I contoured my cheeks using Revlon Sculpt & Highlight Contour Kit, in shade light/medium. I then applied a soft layer of Juvia's PLACE - The Saharan Blush Palette shade Leena. I also used NYX - Strobe of Genius Holographic Stick in “Mermaid Amour” for an iridescent shine. Colourful Sweet Treats Eye Makeup: Moving on to the eyes, I used theMORPHE - The James Charles Palette for the whole look. I started off by packing on “Pinkity Drinkity” onto the inner half of my eyelid and crease. I then took a light dab of “Skip”, then more Pinkity Drinkity on the same brush to deepen the shade slightly and make it more of a soft but vibrant pink. For darker skin tones, you may want to use more Skip to create a brighter colour. Next up is shade “518”, which I took on a small blending brush and packed onto the outer corner of my eyelid, sweeping inward diagonally toward my lash line. Similarly, I pulled that orange shade outwards towards the tail of my brow, and softly blended it into my pink shadows. I also pulled some of 518 onto the outer third of my lower lash line. To complete the lower lash line, I used shade “Bee” to bring some lightness and brightness to the inner portion of my eye, blending it into 518 along the way. For a final pop of summery colour, I packed shade “Hello” onto a small pencil brush, and spritzed it with a setting spray, before packing it onto the inner corner of my eye. The super shiny effect of the shadow and its lustrous, tropical colour really added a fun and fabulous edge to the themed look. I finished the eyes off with a little black eyeshadow on the outer half of my upper lash line, and some MAYBELLINE - Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara on my lashes, and there you have it! A quick, easy summer makeup look for all levels of makeup lovers. Would you like to see some “how to guides” for more wearable, colourful looks? Comment what colours you’d like to learn how to wear during the daytime!

Tik tok #beautyhack - selfies
This trick I learned from beauty guru @irisbeilin. She recently posted it on her tik tok and it’s stepped up my makeup selfie game. Super simple, in order to emphasize and highlight certain features when taking a selfie, hold a reflective surface (like a hand mirror) horizontal & face up about chest level. Make sure the mirror is catching the light and that the light is reflecting into your face. Be used with natural light, a lamp or a ring light, I promise it really works. Top photo is with a mirror, bottom photo is with no mirror.

Dermotologist Advice You Don't Want To MissA roundup of the best tips from cherie's derm panel with Dr. Mina and Dr. Cula.Jan. 21
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.1 DAY AGO
