My favorite contours! Powder or Solid?

Here, I got two contour-s to share with you gals. These two are definitely my holy grails contour. I don’t think I will buy any other contours any more. ⭐️Powder! MAC Matte Eyeshadow #Omega $17 This one is meant to be an eyeshadow, but I used it as a contour. It’s a matte texture, so it’s okay to be a contour. I love the color of it, it’s warm greyish brown, that perfect fix with my skin tone. Forget to mention, I have light skin tone. The normal contour always goes with goldish brown color, which shades is kinda dark, and tent to make my make-up look looks dirty. It has fine powder and easy to apply, and won’t cake my makeup. See color swatches on the 2nd pic, it’s pigmented and the color just perfect match my skin tone. ⭐️Solid! Fenty Beauty Match Stix Matte Skinstick #Amber $24 Fenty Beauty contour is stick applicator, which is quite unique- magnetized, but I only got one stick that could not try this fun function. Amber Skinsticks would not dry out my skin, the coconut oil ingredient brings hydration. It’s buildable without cakey, and easy to apply. The color is close to Mac #Omega, but a bit darker and warmer than it. I use it before applying foundation, that could make the contour looks more natural. Need to notice that, if apply the Stick after setting powder, makeup will be caked. I love both of them. I think the both texture work great! The Mac one is more easy to apply and won’t have any risk of cakey. The Fenty Beauty one is a good choice for Pro beauty lover.

Old Hollywood Vintage Makeup 🎞 📽🖤
Hey Cherie Sisters! Happy Friday Eve! ⚠️ First of all, I just want to say that I DO NOT condone smoking at all ⛔️ 🚬 🚫 ⚠️ I just used it as a prop because cigarettes are always seen in old Hollywood films and I wanted to add an extra oomph to the theme. 😜 I looked at “60s makeup” for inspiration. The 60s eye makeup emphasized the crease with dramatic winged liner and huge eyelashes. They stuck to neutral colors on the eyes and pair it with a peach or light pink lips. The beauty mark that Marilyn Monroe had was also popular. I used my MAC eyeshadows for this look because was feeling nostalgic. MAC eyeshadows were my favorite. I remember that I only bought MAC eyeshadows and used them religiously. Using them again reminded me of how pristine MAC eyeshadows are. They were so pigmented, easy to work with and blended beautifully. I seriously fell in love all over again. To achieve this look, I used: 1) MAC Embark which is an intense reddish-brown shade to define the crease. I used a smudger brush (Morphe M508) 2) I stamped MAC Soft Brown on top of Embark for that transition look. 3) Using my Wayne Goss 20 brush, I blended both colors together 4) I cut my crease using Tarte Shape tape then applied MAC Dazzlelight and Nylon on the lids 5) I used an angled eyeliner brush and a gel liner to draw a dramatic wing. I would suggest gel liner over liquid for more precision and drama 6) I applied MAC Soft Brown and Embark on the lower lash. 7) Use a white eyeliner to tight line. I used Colourpop Creme Gel Liner in Exit then use MAC Gesso (matte white eyeshadow) to intensify 8) Emphasize those lashes with falsies! I used House of Lashes in the style Bouidoir Lite 9) Apply lots of mascara on the bottom lash. Use falsies for bottom lashes to emphasize the look however, this step is optional 10) Channel your inner Marilyn Monroe and add that beauty marked. 11) For lips, I used KVD Vegan Beauty Liquid Lipstick in Lovecraft then topped it with Marc Jacobs Enamored Gloss in the shade Rah Rah!. A bold red lip would work too! 12) Enjoy! I hope you recreate this look and would love to see your finished look! 🤞 What is your favorite makeup era? Francesca 💋 #CheriePartner

5 min eye look to make your eyes pop!
Bring out your eye color and make your eyes the center of attention with two products! My eyes are my favorite feature and I love to make them pop even more and make them the focus of my makeup look. I have light brown eyes with a bit of a hazel in them (thx mom and dad) and pairing the correct eyeshadow color can really make them pop! WHAT I USE: A burnt brown shadow. Something orange/red based to bring the green out in my eyes. My go to is Brownscript from MAC. I take a fluffy blending brush and blend the shadow all over my lid. Very simple and quick. MAC - MAC Matte Eyeshadow To further make eyes pop and make my eyes appear bigger, I take a white or nude color eyeliner and line my bottom water line. This instantly draws even more attention to my eyes. If you want a more dramatic look then stick with the white, but to keep it more subtle stick with a nude color liner. I like to use the fenty pencil eyeliner. FENTY BEAUTY - Flypencil Longwear Pencil Eyeliner What if you don’t have brown eyes? Blue eyes - orange based browns and orange shadows! Green eyes - red tone shadows! Hazel eyes - red based browns! #cheriecreator

Easy Job Interview Glam
When it comes to my ~professional~ glam, I like to keep things minimal but still make sure to contour and highlight the appropriate areas – the goal is a soft glow that accentuates your features without looking too much. I think it’s also important to apply powder, especially if you’re like me and have oily skin and are prone to sweat when you get nervous lol. Keeping shine in mind, I like to opt for mattifying complexion products and powder formulas when it comes to bronzer, blush, and highlight - but these days, my favorite bronzers and blushes are cream formulations. For the eyes, I think all you need is a little sweep of mascara and/or liner depending on what you’re into. To really make them pop and elevate your look, I like to go in with a neutral eyeshadow to give the eyes more definition and make myself look more put together. And for the finishing touch, all you need is your favorite lipstick. I feel like any color goes and your glam can be a great way to let your personality shine through. These are the products I use: REVLON - Photoready Candid Glow Moisture Glow Anti-Pollution Foundation MAKE UP FOR EVER - Ultra HD Self-Setting Concealer MARC JACOBS BEAUTY - Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara FENTY BEAUTY - Match Stix Matte Skinstick – for a natural-looking contour, I like to warm the product up on the back of my hand and then I pick it up from there with an angled bronzer brush. MERLE NORMAN - Cheek Crayon - like with the contour stick, I recommend applying creme blushes to your hand first and picking it up from there. This gives you more control when you apply it and really helps you build it up to that natural-looking flush. I also love to add a little to my eyes to sub in for eyeshadow. Charlotte Tilbury - Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder – if you're on the oilier side like me, I've found that you need to apply this powder all over and do so about 2-3 times. It's a little annoying, but it creates such a gorgeous glow that you really look airbrushed and it's totally worth it. PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Butter Highlighter – make sure you dab the excess off or you’ll look ~crazy~ glowy. I learned this the hard way. Charlotte Tilbury - Matte Revolution Lipstick

Double Eyeliner 🖤
I love the double eyeliner look, especially for hooded eyes like mine! Bought some new face makeup to try and get that flawless base! My opinion on a couple are below! Jouer - Essential High Coverage Liquid Concealer Color: Chiffon 🖤 So far I love this concealer! Very high coverage and didn’t crease under my eyes. Even covered some retinization (dry, red spots caused by skin getting used to using retinol treatment) that have been under my eyes. The dark spots under my eyes are still slightly visible. I’ve struggled with dark spots since childhood and have yet to find an effective, cake-free way to cover them completely! If you have experienced this or have any ideas let me know! FENTY BEAUTY - Match Stix Matte Skinstick Color: Amber 🖤 First cream contour I have used (I usually just stick with bronzer) and I loved it! Color was a great match and the formula was easy for me to blend. The only issue I had was after walking around outside in the hot sun (sweating) for an hour with my makeup on, when I got home I noticed my skin had tiny red bumps where I had placed the contour. Not sure why this happened, but it did clear up within 2 days.

FENTY BEAUTY AMBER  V.S.  MAC omega
FENTY BEAUTY AMBER  V.S.  MAC omega
FENTY BEAUTY AMBER and MAC omega are my favorite shade products. I can say that I use them every day. The color of these two are quite similar and they are both so matched with my skin color. I believe that those people who are medium-tan or tan skin tones with neutral undertones would definitely love them.   FENTY BEAUTY AMBER: Although the texture of FENTY BEAUTY AMBER is paste, it is so hydrated and smooth when I apply it on my cheek. I can still remember that I was a little bit worried at the first using time because it seems thick and it may make my makeup look dirty. However, I was quite excited since it shapes my face naturally. There is a tip to make it work with the whole makeup, that is, using a powder puff dipped in water to pat this shade. You will find it lifts your face immediately.   MAC omega: Unlike FENTY BEAUTY AMBER, the texture of MAC omega is powder. It is no exaggeration to say that MAC omega is the best shade I have ever bought. Although it is designed for eye shadow, it is really suitable for nose shade. It is so fantastic since it can make my features look outstanding immediately. I have persuaded all my dear friends to buy MAC omega and I strongly recommend everyone to try this one.   According to amazon, the price of FENTY BEAUTY AMBER is $25.00 for 0.25oz while the price of MAC omega is $22.07 for 0.05oz. Despite of the fact that MAC seems more expensive than FENTY BEAUTY, I prefer MAC omega since it is more functional. Please buy it, you would never regret.

Love Rihanna Love Fenty Beauty!🤣
Love Rihanna Love Fenty Beauty!🤣
The brand Fenty beauty created by Rihanna. So this brand got a lot of attention when it is released. From my view, fenty beauty has a medium high performance during the same level brand. Their popular product is diamond highlight, which has fine powder, large and shiny particles. I bought one but lost it. I am going to show you some other products, which one of them has similar to the popular diamond highlight. The first is sponge egg. Wet it before using can bring you a better makeup effect. I use this egg whatever for the primer or foundation. Its shape is different from that of other sponge eggs. It's not a standard egg description. The sharp side has a special design. It's easier for us to cover all parts on our face. Very soft and smooth feeling when it is applied on your face. FENTY BEAUTY - Precision Makeup Sponge 100 The second pink diamond blush highlight is actually the pink version of the popular diamond highlights. It can be Painted on the face as a blush as well as a high gloss, very convenient. And Daily necessities. However, I have to show one another product from fenty beauty. It is also an highlight, with purple color. But…the performane is really bad. If the powder pink highlight has four stars, this highlight stick only can got 2. Yes…the color is very pretty. It presents the purple luster with colorful glitter. However, that makes no sense! Because it is so hard to apply on your face. Every time when I try to wear it, it will make my foundation got mess. FENTY BEAUTY - Match Stix Matte Skinstick FENTY BEAUTY - Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter So when you shop in the future, don't just look at the packaging and just try them on your hand. Because sometimes even if it looks good on your hands, it is not necessarily practical!

$95 VS $36❓$36 Win‼️❕‼️
$95 VS $36❓$36 Win‼️❕‼️
Both of them are highlighters, but the price difference is more than twice. MAC costs $36 and cle de peau costs $95. I almost run out of my cpb, so I bought a new alternative, MAC ginger highlighter. This MAC’s packaging is the limited edition for last year’s Christmas, but the inside product has no difference. The color is “oh, darling”. It has the polarized light with bronze color, especially suitable for taking photos, very shining. I bought it from covent garden London. Many people were purchasing this limited packaging highlighter at that time, this is very popular product. MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Highlight Face Powder The CPB has been used for many years. Color is 14. Compared with Mac, color is much lighter, white highlights + light shimmering power. It's natural and refreshing on your face and suitable for daily life. So it has become the one I use most frequently. Whether I go to school or work, I wear it when I go out. And it is buildable, plus blush, you will look super cute. clé de peau BEAUTÉ - Luminizing Face Enhancer I prefer MAC, the color is more popular and more shining, price can be accepted. I can use the extra money buy the other color of this series. I have taken the photos under the flash light. MAC’s flash particles are larger than cpb, more shining.

as i posed recently, one of my girls was getting married! here’s my makeup look to zoom in and be a virtual bridesmaid 🥰🥰 i started with the NYX - Hi Definition Photo Concealer Wand this stuff is great as long as you set it! then, i moved on to the NYX - Bare With Me Tinted Skin Veil which is so good as a light foundation! e.l.f. - 50 Color Eye & Face Palette i used the contour out of this palette and a light gray to blend into the colors i already had on my eye.... URBAN DECAY - URBAN DECAY Single Eyeshadow this is my favorite eyeshadow of all time. even when i was bad at makeup, this looked good. Too Faced - Tutti Frutti Fruit Cocktail Blush Duo i broke this unfortunately and had to blend the colors together. it’s still a shimmery flush that i don’t even have to use highlighter with ❤️ pixi - Brow Tamer the best to tame my crazy brows

What it is:3 different colors of irresistibly creamy powder formula, the shades blend effortlessly to leave an ultra-reflective, yet flawlessly smooth sheen. What it did for me: It’s texture is true to what it says it is! When I first got this I was so excited to try this and I’ve been using it now for 3 months(as you can tell it’s pretty beat up!) and I’m obsessed! I carry it all the time in my makeup bag or purse for a quick on the go touch up, even for my body! The shades are so buttery and smooth they easily go on with any brush. I prefer the two lighter shades in the palette since I’m so fair, but this has been my go to lately!

My fav 3 products from MAC-each of them is amazi
My fav 3 products from MAC-each of them is amazi
To be honest, I'm not the kind of girl who always wears makeup, but I need to bring some really good cosmetics with me all the time in case of any unexpected encounters, such as a beautiful lipstick, a convenient-to-use eyebrow pencil, and also, 3 products from MAC that I want to introduce now. 1. MAC Hyper Real Glow Palettes It’s a 3 different.colors creamy highlight shades which contains two rosy shades and one medium bronze.  Swatches above from left to right, Flash + Awe– a peachy highlight, Rosy Glow– a medium rose highlight, and Light of the Party– a medium golden bronze.This palette is ideal for pale skin. I like using it on my chins, nose and eyes (sometimes even on my body ;D), choosing different color according to different makeup. Believe me it can go with any blushes. It’s really stunning, and what’s amazing is that it’s very natural, it glows effortlessly and makes your skin smooth and shining. Btw it’s easy to carry and use, I just use my finger for a quick makeup. 2.MAC mineralize blush WARM SOUL I am not a fan of the shade but the quality of warm soul is really good. This is a sheer blush, and even though you wear this blush it doesn't get opaque but still gives you a natural look. I think that’s why it’s so popular. It just gives you a perfect, healthy glow,not pink or orange or brown...it's just flushingly glowy. And that's exactly what I like. I use it almost every day and I also bought one for my friend, she really likes it too. 3.MAC omega eye shadow A pale, warm taupe. It almost has a yellow or olive undertone, but still decidedly taupe. This is such a workhorse! Except to be used as an eye shadow, it matches my eyebrows. It's my go to contour. It fills in my hairline…. It can do all the works perfectly. I ALWAYS bring it with me whenever and wherever I am. the only disadvantage is that it’s too small to find.
