Butterfly Lady🎀White or Pink Face Primer？
These two face primer have one thing in common, whitening and brightening the complexion. I have used MAC strobe cream for a long time. According to makeup bloggers’ experience, I mix it into my foundation as a 1:3 ratio every time. The effect of this method is more natural and brightening to my skin. Its texture has a little bit thick, color is white, so mixing it into the liquid foundation with good fluidity can present a much better effect. The photo I have shown on the picture is the first generation, MAC has updated packages’ pattern, but the component content would not be changed. I bought it from MAC in Saks Fifth Avenue. Price is $35 and is reasonable. MAC - Strobe Cream

COME HERE TO PICK ONE
Combination dry skin with acne. KOREAN AND JAPANESE BRANDS VS EUROPEAN AND US PRODUCTS These four face primers have a big gap on price. I have used them for a long period. Each of them has different functions and performance. I cannot wait to share with you! 1. CPB SPF 20++ clé de peau BEAUTÉ - Correcting Cream Veil SPF 21 The newest try one among these four, but I have been applying it for one month. Special for dry and desert skin. Texture: creamy white with hydrated feeling. If you are oil skin, try to avoid it. You will feel too oily to spread the primer evenly. Price: $80 Advantage: moisturizing and pigmentation. It can help me to brighten my skin tone. Disadvantage: low SPF and poor fluidity. 2. LANEIGE SPF22++ LANEIGE - Skin Veil Base SPF25 PA++ Two type can be chosen. One is green for improving the problems of skin sensitivity and redness. I prefer purple one. This series is applicable for dull and shallow skin. However! This one is the worst among these four! DO NOT BUY IT! Texture: not very thick but not moisturizing. After applying, my skin tone is looked like not natural. You have to do a great job on previous moisturizing work. I don’t like it. Price: $20 Advantage: cheap Disadvantage: cannot keep the moisture of skin and I got new acne on my chin due to this primer. 3. CHANTECAILLE SPF 45 PA+++ CHANTECAILLE - Ultra Sun Protection Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45 Primer Shake the tube before using it to mix all ingredients together. Texture: it makes us feel oil when squeeze them out. However, this product is oil-free formula. No color and no fragrance. It can form 1-2mm protective film on my skin from my observation. Price:$95 Advantage: dry skin will love it! Disadvantage: high price and low cost performance. I can run out of one by six months. 4. MAC MAC - Strobe Cream I have introduced this product for many times. I love it because it’s multi-functional primer which gives me the brightening and smoothest appearance. The using method is different from previous three. I always mix them with my foundation. The effect is much more amazing and natural than using alone. Price:$35 Advantage: very durable. Mix with foundation can create more surprise. Disadvantage: sheer primer texture. Many people don’t like it. Conclude, the face primer ranking is CPB,CHANTECAILLE, MAC, LANEIGE.
Covergirl Advanced Radiance Pressed Powder
COVERGIRL - Advanced Radiance Pressed Powder Silky, smooth formula with skin-conditioning and skin-brightening ingredients provides a radiantly beautiful finish. Use alone to help even out skin tone, or use with Advanced Radiance Makeup to help cover fine lines and wrinkles. Claims to: Helps to cover fine lines and wrinkles Helps to even skin tone Natural-looking, radiant finish Suitable for sensitive skin I purchased this powder from CVS for $12 after Tati Westbrook/Glamlifeguru raved about it on her YouTube channel. This powder in my opinion is nothing special. It is just like any other powder. It does work how a pressed powder should. I use it on top of my foundation to set it. The only question or problem I have from this is that the formula has little beads/balls in it. Is this normal?? The other flaw is that the shade range is not very good. There are only 3 shades: creamy natural, classic beige and natural beige, which are all very light shades. Honestly the e.l.f. - Beautifully Bare Finishing Powder is way better for a pressed powder and $6 cheaper! In my opinion I would not recommend this product. It does the job but there are better options out there!

Products you need for Spring 💐
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream is the top of my budget, I got this for my birthday and I love it! Perfect to wear as your daily face cream or to prep your skin for makeup. It really suits my skin because it reduces the appearance of wrinkles and its so good at hydrating, perfect for brightening dull skin. The cream is so lovely, goes on like silk and soaks into my face really quickly. My skin feels firmer after I use it and I love the natural glow it gives you ✨ it’s $60 unless it’s on offer but you get 50ml, which lasts, I have asked for some for mothers day 🎀 Urban Decay Stay Naked Threesome Blush, Bronzer and Highlighter Palette, is amazing! It’s a bronzer, blush and highlighter in one! Super pigmented, so you have to be careful, start off with very little product, you don’t want to look like a clown, do you? Lasts forever, which is great and with 3 shades to choose from, it’s totally a great product. The best news is, it quickly gives you that summer look, no effort involved! 😍 Clarins Lip Comfort Oil this lip oil is a must-have and I’m not even joking💋 it looks like your lips are naturally beautiful, not like your wearing makeup, so good. Mine is shade 04 candy, it is fabulous at repairing and hydrating your lips, they look plump, it tastes nice, but the best thing about this product is, you get a glass like shine without being sticky. Honestly, people, you will be so please with this product. One thing though, it’s so good it’s nearly always sold out! 🔥 Ask for these products as a gift or as a well done you present, because let’s face it you’re always worth it!
Charlotte Tilbury-Charlotte's Magic Cream
Here are the products I will definitely be using to glow for Postalservice10014 ✨ after all the shopping i did in Korea, I was going to do a no-buy but broke it by buying this Charlotte Tilbury Bronze & Glow and the Makeupforever brush. I love using this brush for this palette for an all-over contoured glow look with subtle highlights. I seriously don't know how I lived before this! The best primer/skin perfector is Dior's DreamSkin - this really promises that instant perfection before you apply your makeup and coupled this with the Wonder Glow, I promise you will be glowing like no other.
DIOR-Capture Dreamskin Care & Perfect
Really surprised by this primer!
I recently started using this skin balm. It looks like a moisturizer but it’s more of a primer. And oh boy was I surprised how well this works. Since it’s more on the moisturizer side I would’ve thought that it would make my makeup pill or even my skincare but it didn’t! I have combination skin so the areas where I have the most oil, I wasn’t too sure about it. It honestly left my skin dewy and felt really nice. It didn’t mess up my makeup or anything at all. Plus it smells fresh and clean which is great. It’s not too overpowering. I usually wait a couple min after I apply this primer to make sure it gets absorbed in my skin.

Key Ingredients - Ole Henriksen
Let’s talk about ingredients, we all know they are there but now let’s dive in to see what they really do! I’m featuring OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Face Primer as the first key ingredient spotlight. This primer claims to “instantly brighten, improve and extend makeup wear, blur imperfections, and hydrates,” according to Ole Henriksen’s website. It can be worn on its own or with makeup, like I do! I have oily combo skin so it’s super important I wear a primer along with my foundation. It retails for $38.00 and can be purchased online or in store. The main ingredient I see is Vitamin C, which targets the visible signs of aging. It also has Squalane, an amazing ingredient that soothes, hydrates, has anti-inflammatory properties, and anti-aging elements. This is particularly essential in a primer since you need your product to sooth and hydrate your face if you wear makeup. Additionally, it has lemon fruit extract that has additional anti-inflammatory and anti-irritation properties! When wearing makeup or a primer on its own, you need to feel comfortable in your own skin aka you don’t want your face to be itchy scratchy! Combined together with Vitamin E to help nourish the skin you are looking at an amazing product! I have mentioned how Ole Henriksen only makes gold products because each is outstanding and this is just another one that performs exactly how it states it will! 🧡🧡🧡

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
