Liquid Shadows - The Easiest Look Evvvaaaa
I’m a big fan of shimmery liquid shadows because they’re easy to apply and look like you put in way more effort into your eye look than you actually did. Liquid shadows all feature some sort of doe foot applicator that you can apply directly to your lid, finger, or brush. Tap out with your finger for more color or a brush for a more soft, diffused effect. Adding a second layer will also intensity the color. Heck, you could even layer different colors for a custom color! These are some of my favorites in my collection. Most are higher end and mid-range, but you can sometimes get these on sale and I also encourage you to try drugstore formulas like Wet n Wild and ELF. My favorite way to wear these is on their own, but you can also add some powder shadow into your crease and/or outer corner depending on the look you’re going for. Swipe for swatches and looks wearing 3 of these over the last few days! Top to bottom: Kosas - 10-Second Eyeshadow

Easy 10 MIN makeup look. Out the door!
I’m all about finding easy natural looking makeup looks. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good glam session, but most times I am pressed for time and need to get out the door. These are some of my go-to products for times like that! Minimal but still a really pretty makeup look! I have combo skin, and right now my tone is light-medium! For a quick look I’m all about time efficiency! I use Perricone MD - No Makeup Foundation Serum Broad Spectrum SPF 20 for a quick sheen finish and evening out my skin (I have some hyperpigmentation spots). This stuff is really great. It’s really lightweight and it genuinely looks like you aren’t wearing any makeup! I would almost compare it to Ilia Beauty’s skin tint but this one is not oily at all. I prefer the perricone one more! I like to use the Kosas - 10-Second Eyeshadow for a quick one sweep over the eye. It is truly a liquid formula but it dries down to a matte. There is minimal creasing, but there still is some. #Laura Mercier - Blush[products]#[FiveStars] in the shade fresco is the perfect nude blush for me. It has a sheen shimmery finish but it doesn’t look gawdy or overdone. It is perfect to shape out your face and I can even put this one my eyes for a pretty nude eye look also. Glossier. - Brow Flick is what I use on my brows because it gives the perfect “brow strokes.” It’s so easy to use but you have to have a very light hand to make sure it is not over done! I’ve been using false lashes because they’re easy to use and makes the look complete! ARDELL - Wispies Lash they’re cheap and can be done in under a minute! Hope you liked this look! #cheriepartner

Four 🌟 for Lidstar!
On Black Friday I bought a BUNCH of products from Glossier on sale. I’ve only recently started trying them out. Today I gave Lidstar a whirl for the first time. I got the liquid eyeshadow in the shade Cub, which is a glowy, golden pink. It’s super easy to apply and leaves a nice, sheer wash of pretty glimmering color that doesn’t require much blending at all. It’s a little lighter than I had hoped, but overall I give it a thumb’s up. (I will say in person it was more noticeable than in my photo, so that’s on me!!) What products have you picked up over the holidays you really enjoy? Glossier. - Lidstar Glistening Eye Glow
EASY EYE LOOK THAT POPS THE EYE
Eye shadow is from Glossier. - Lidstar Glistening Eye Glow usually I don’t shop at glossier but this product applied to me because it’s purple and shiny and pops my eye color. MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Mascara Full Fan Effect this mascara is the best because it holds a curl ALL DAY. if you curl your lashes you need this mascara!! Then putting black eye liner in the water like is key. This creates the simple sexy smoldering eye look. It also pots whatever eye color you may have. I use the L.A. Girl - Perfect Precision Eyeliner I think this eyeliner is 2 dollars and it has lasted me a year. It’s crazy!! It might not say on all day. I will have to reapply it after I go swimming or workout. Then that’s it. Very easy and beautiful results. This eye look took me literally 1 minute.
Halloween Makeup! 🧜🏽♀️ A look I did before I got my eyebrows microbladed! Products- bh - Take Me Back to Brazil 35 Color Pressed Pigment Palette Such lovely pigment absolutely love this palette . Especially for summer. So many bright colors. It made the look. stila - Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow Shade- wanderlust. Amazing. I always get so many compliments when I wear the glow liquid eye shadow. URBAN DECAY - Troublemaker Mascara After it dried I really enjoyed how it looked. But they discontinued it. URBAN DECAY - All Nighter Liquid Foundation Full coverage. One of my go to foundations when looking for full coverage. Waterproof. And non heavy feeling.
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?

Great liquid eyeshadow for beginners
Glossier. - Lidstar Glistening Eye Glow is an amazing introductory eyeshadow for beginners. For those who are just starting to dig deeper into the liquid eyeshadow realm, Lidstar is a good place to start. They’re sheer, meaning if you mess up or put too much, it’s easy to blend it out with your fingers— no tools necessary! Because they are so sheer, they’re also nice for a natural, quick eye look. The cons with lidstar are that it can be a little hard to blend. I don’t think they’re meant to be used together, because when you do, the colors just move and slide around too much.

favorite quarantine eye makeup
This is a weird time because I simultaneously want to wear less makeup since I’m working from home, but also more—maybe to maintain a sense of normalcy or just because I’m bored? Either way, I’ve never been much of an eye makeup person, but I’ve been reaching for this Kosas - 10-Second Eyeshadow a lot lately. Full disclosure, I only got this because it was 50% off, making it $14–I don’t think I would spend $28 on this. But since the thought of blending a whole palette full of eyeshadows intimidates me, I like the idea of a simple liquid shadow that can allegedly be applied in 10 seconds. This is the color Copper Halo, which is more of a shimmery bronze. Kosas claims that these shadows are buildable, but intended to be worn as a “wash of color.” I’ve never tried to build the color because A. I’m lazy and B. I like the way it looks with just one layer. It’s pretty idiot-proof: I swipe the applicator over my lids and blend it out with either my fingertips or a brush. It makes me look and feel a little more put together without looking like I tried too hard. Sadly, it does tend to crease throughout the day—let it be known that I don’t use an eyeshadow primer, though; maybe that would help? This is a good amount of product for $14, so I would definitely recommend checking it out if they have another sale. I would consider getting another color if they were half off again. In short, I think this is a great shadow for those of us who are intimidated by traditional shadows, or for those who love simple, quick makeup. #CheriePartner
topshopbeauty products The liquid highlighter in shade Misty is beautiful for cool and light skin tones (it comes in 3 colours), the formula is gorgeous, the finish is velvety, but not sticky. I would say this is similar to ctilbury Flawless Filter. I love to mix mine with foundation, moisturiser or CC/BB when I want some extra glow (or did not sleep enough). Can be used in either of these combinations, under or on top of foundation (i.e cheek bones, nose bridge, etc). The Eye Pencil in shade Treasured is waterproof and dries to a smudge proof finish. I think this colour really complements my brown eyes. True story: after taking this pic (obv wearing a white shirt), I quickly wanted to wipe it off. Guess what? No chance 💪🏻 I had to wash it with water and soap. So very impressed.
Glossier lidstar liquid eyeshadow ⭐️
Glossier. - Lidstar Glistening Eye Glow Ive never been a huge fan of liquid eyeshadow. I have bigger eyelids so there’s more space to spread the color on, with that being said there’s also more visible creases! I usually have a hard time with eyeshadow because I find it difficult to know where to transition colors especially where to put the light and dark color so that my eyes look smaller and more defined. The pros of this are easy to use, simplistic nice color with good shimmer in certain lighting ✨ can also be used as highlighter! 🌸 The cons I’ve found of this are difficult time blending to make it even it only is really high shine in direct lighting, as you can see in the video, after the flash goes off it looks a little dull! easily sweats off🥵not always idea if your job makes you sweat a lot! to get actual pigment may need multiple application (but I think the purpose of this is really just to add a subtle hint of color with shimmer) All in all, I won’t be buying this again. It just wasn’t for me personally but it doesn’t work as a good highlighter so at least something came of this! I do like glossier and think they have some good stuff out there so I will be trying more of their products in the future!

I really like this eyeliner. It is true to its name and glides on beautifully. It lasts all day too but it does need a few layers to get the waterline filled in. That is the reason I took a star away. It does not cause any irritation to my eyes and stays on until I want it off which is great. I am an emotional momma so I cry a lot and this has lasted through most of my meltdowns. I will be purchasing this eyeliner again when this one runs out. I really really enjoy it.

Are you as happy as I am that it’s Friday?!?! Going for a warm fall look for date night tonight and as always, grabbing for my faves from @kosascosmetics. I’m really enjoying these VERY fall-friendly 10-second liquid eyeshadow shades and like the look of Copper Halo* all over the bottom half of the lid with a dot of Supreme* at the center of my eyelids. What’s your favorite @kosascosmetics eyeshadow? *kindly gifted by the brand but opinions are all my own

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.2 DAYS AGO
