My Ulta Black Friday haul ✨
So upon seeing the ad for Ulta’s Black Friday I told myself I wasn’t going to purchase anything... three separate purchases later I found myself with a completely pink haul (which is completely out of character for me 😂) The first thing I picked up on Black Friday was the ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit

Purple Dreams ✨🌙💜
Hey Cherie Fam! 🍒 I have been doing a lot of reds/greens lately for the holiday season. If I’m not doing those colors, I’m doing neutrals. I just really wanted to play with some color today. I wanted color, but still a somewhat wearable look. I used my Lunar Beauty Moon Spell palette today and played with some duo chrome purples. The shimmers in this palette are incredible. I love the shade Phoebe and Prue! They really are mind blowing. They don’t have too many fall outs either. The browns in this palette are so buttery and pigmented. The shade Winifred blew me away because I expected it to be a light shade, but it packs so much punch. I really love the formula and I’m thinking about picking up the Strawberry 🍓 Dream palette 🤔 LUNAR BEAUTY - Moon Spell Color Palette To achieve this look, I used: • Winifred as a transition shade. I used a fluffy brush and used window wipe shield motions • Kiki to deepen up the winifred shade. I used a smaller and stiffer brush • I applied glitter glue to intensify the shimmer then applied Phoebe all over my lids • I applied Kiki on the outer V to soften up the edges from the lid shade • I applied Winifred then Kiki on the lower lash • With a wet brush, I applied Phoebe in the middle of Winifred and Kiki • I applied Prue on the inner corner and highlight • Winged liner, mascara then lashes. I used HOL in Natalia Lite HOUSE of LASHES - Natalia Lite •For the lips, I used Colourpop lip oil on skinny dip What is your favorite eyeshadow color? Xoxo, Francesca 💋

lilah.b had a sale recently and I just had to pick up a few of these beautiful pebbles. These are some of the prettiest packaging I have seen! These pebbles are weighted and just visually stunning! I picked up Divine Duo Lip and Cheek in b.lovely and b.fearless. Also the Flawless Finish Foundation in b. classic and the b. stunning eye quad. I can’t wait to get stuck into these. My one issue though I wish the brand had a larger colour range and went beyond the medium shade range. It would be good if the brand would bring out more shades in the future.
lilah b.-Flawless Finish Foundation
My top 5 makeup products that I cannot live without! Lilah b Lip n Cheek duo in b.true: This is the best cream blush ever! I love how it gives you a sunkissed look and stays all day long. It's also clean beauty from Sephora. Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Concealer: The best concealer ever!! It's so hydrating, full coverage and blends into the skin seamlessly. I wear this instead of foundation most days! Charlotte Tilbury Pressed Powder: The best pressed powder that doesn't leave a white cast. It also never looks cakey and is perfect for the under eyes! Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter: One of the most natural highlighters that make you look lit from within. It's honestly so beautiful and has lasted me so long even though I've used it everyday! Kosas Sport Lip Fuels in Rush: This is a tinted lip balm that keeps the lips super hydrated and it has a beautiful tint to it!
Glowy, long-lasting and super versatile
I bought this Stila liquid eyeshadow in “starlight” on a total whim and although I typically go for a more natural look, I do love this product for summer when I want to look extra glowy and golden. I also love to use it in different ways and I find it to be very versatile and mix well with other products! How I use it: - Cream eyeshadow alone that I apply with my finger. It provides a fairly pigmented gold shadow or a shear wash of golden sparkle depending on how much you apply. - Mix with Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color in “Beam” to create a beautiful golden-orange eyeshadow that makes blue eyes pop. - Mix with Glossier. - Futuredew Oil Serum Hybrid to create a sheer, golden and dewy highlight that I use on the high points of my face. The good: + As I mentioned before, I love how versatile it is. + Beautiful shimmer that nicely reflects the light. + This shade in particular I find you can have a shimmery and sheer application or you can get a super pigmented look if you apply more. + Absolutely not patchy at all. And I find that it’s a very consistent product. + Stays all day and won’t flake or transfer. I would say it would take a lot for this to move once it’s dried down. + Super easy to apply either with the applicator or your finger and it dries down pretty quickly which helps avoid any smudging. + Non-irritating on my eyes. The not so good: - The price feels a little steep at $31. - I won’t pretend that there isn’t a little creasing, but I do find it to be quite minor. Worth it? Since you can use it in so many ways, I do think it’s worth the price point of $31. Once you find your perfect shade, you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the final results and the different looks you can make with it. Plus this has lasted me almost a year now and hasn’t dried out (although I think I’m due to buy a new one soon because ... hygiene 🙃). Will I repurchase? I might try out a different colour / shade, but yes definitely a repurchase. Thought of the day: I have started mixing more and more of my products lately. Don’t know why but it’s typically using Glossier products. Anyone else constantly mixing products?

Colors That Suit My Skin Tone
So, I would say I have an olive skin tone and because I love the sun I like to compliment my skin with what is this years dream spring and summer makeup color collections 🍓 Nars Blush (Orgasm) A beautiful combo for light to medium tan skin color, perfect for spring and summer, all the 32 shades of the Nars blushes are iconic by my favorite is the orgasm, very flattering for every skin type, natural with a slight rose gold shimmer when it’s hit by sunlight. So light on my skin, weightless with really great buildable qualities. I don’t need to tell you how great Nars are and ‘orgasm’ is, it’s there best seller 💝 Sephora Collection Long-Lasting Kohl Pencil, let me tell you, I don’t go out in the street without this eye pencil, this one is amazing, so flattering. I have mine in brown, it has intense pigmentation, which means you can see it on, and it lasts all day! 💪🏼So easy to blend, I use it to intensify and elongate my eyelashes. Check out the Sephora website because they always have an offer on this eye pencil. Milk Makeup Kush Lip Blam, this is my secret weapon for sexy lips 💋 I have mine in the shade called bubble, it’s a lip balm that works as a sheer lipstick, full of hydrating plant oils that soothe the lips. The best bit though is the color, neutral rose with a golden shimmer, all set in really cool packaging. Spring and summer colors are tricky to get right but you can’t go wrong with these, trust me!

Ive been trying out Burt’s Bees makeup line recently and I love the natural look that I have achieved. Burt’s Bees is a company that I truly admire because there focus is on clean beauty. They Do Not Test on Animals, Paraben Free Formulas, No SLS, No Petrolatum, No talc or synthetic fragrances. 99% of there makeup products are Natural!! Today I’m using the Liquid Foundation in Ivory. The coverage is light yet buildable. I do prefer a heavy coverage but if your looking for something light this foundation will do the trick. What I did notice with this foundation is that you need too put a setting powder on afterwards. This will help set the makeup and eliminate the oil. Next I used the Bronzer and highlighter sticks. The bronzer was very light, almost too light and I have very pale skin. I tried too build it up as much as I could but it was not buildable. The highlighter was the same in comparison. Very light and had a oily texture too it. I do admire the extra hydration aspect of the coconut oil core but not for a bronzer or highlighter as it was just too much for my skin. Next I had used the Nourishing Mascara. I really like that it’s made with jojoba oil that helps nourish my lashes. It’s also made with beeswax for added texture. I created a natural look with good length and volume. I had no issues with it flaking or smudging. Lastly I used the Lip Stick (which can also be used as a blush) I used the shade Peony Pool. This shade was vibrant and had good pigmentation. I do appreciate the coconut oil core in this product a lot better because my lips tend too be dry. Is it long lasting lip wear? Unfortunately no, you do need too re-apply though-out the day.

Pixi Beauty Blush Duo in Peach Honey
pixi - Beauty Blush Duo + Kabuki I love this blush-highlighter combo. The color is subtle but gives you a soft, radiant glow, as if you’re always standing in beautiful honey-hued light, all day. It comes with a small kabuki brush which is awesome and works pretty well given that this is an economy product. I purchased this in color peach honey, and will probably purchase the rose gold as well.
