{Brown Eyes} Easy Matte Brown Eye Pictorial

Do you like to wear eyeshadow that is the same color as your eyes? I sure do! I have brown eyes, and I think that brown shadow makes my eyes look so...cozy. Is that weird? LOL. Anyways, I definitely recommend trying shadow that’s the same color as your eyes. For brown eyes, I also love orange, purple, and green. I prepared a simple matte eyeshadow pictorial using the DOSE OF COLORS - Baked Browns Eyeshadow Palette
. This palette contains 5 warm-toned brown shadows ranging in depth and undertone. These shadows are very powdery and very pigmented, so less is more! The formula is smooth and easy to blend. It retails for $32, but you can sometimes find it on sale. DOC has a bunch of these 5-pans, so there’s bound to be a color story you’ll like. I used all 5 shades in this pictorial. This look took me about 5 minutes total. I apply my eyeshadow first except for lower lash line prior to doing my base makeup. I have hooded eyes, so I don’t do a lot of “complicated” eye looks (like cut creases) because the effect can get a little lost + time consuming (for me). Steps: Pre-prep: Prep your eyes with eye primer or concealer and set with translucent powder or the shade “tea light” (pale cream) depending on your skin tone. 1. Using a flat or fluffy brush, apply the shade “deserted” all over your lid and into your crease. 2. Using a fluffy blush, blend “outdoorsy” into your crease. 3. Using a smaller fluffy brush, gently stamp “cherry wood” onto your outer corner, then blend slightly inwards onto your lid and into your crease. 4. Using a flat definer or angled brush, apply “rock bottom” across your upper lashline. You can make this as intense as you want! **Blend your edges with a clean brush or one of your used fluffy brushes dipped into “tea light** 5. Use a pencil or flat definer brush to apply a tiny amount of “cherry wood” onto your outer lower lash line. Blend out with “deserted” or “outdoorsy” (I used “deserted” for a softer effect. Highlight under your brow arch and inner corner with “tea light”. 6. Add mascara. Not a fan of all matte eyes? Tap a shimmer shade from another palette on the inner 1/2 or 3/4 of your lid. Other eye products used: MILANI - MILANI Eyeshadow Primer

Is Glitter Primer Worth It?
TLDR: YES glitter primer is worth it Some people choose not to use actual eye primer. I personally do on a daily basis - the MILANI - MILANI Eyeshadow Primer . Some choose to use concealer, and if that works for you, that’s awesome. So why would you need a glitter primer, especially if you aren’t someone who wears glitter? Keep reading! I own the NYX - Glitter Primer . It’s affordable (approx. $7), cruelty-free, and widely available. I have a large eyeshadow palette collection. Some of my palettes are a few years old (like my tarte - Maneater Eyeshadow Palette V2 - mine is original version which you can’t get anymore but v2 contains same shades) and the shimmers don’t perform as well. You can use a glitter primer to amp up the intensity of lackluster shimmers! I swatched the shade “foxy” on dry skin w/ no primer, over the Milani primer, and over the NYX glitter primer. The swatch with the glitter primer is more shimmery and the shadow looks like how it used to 3-4 years ago. The glitter primer also holds onto shadow much better and will increase wear time. Glitter primer is great for, you guessed it, glitter. Now, admittedly I own a few COLOURPOP - Colourpop Pressed Glitter and will flat out warn you they’re not technically eye safe. I regret buying a bunch of them but that’s a story for a different time. I have used the glitter glue to adhere these glitters to my eyes and I experience almost 0 fall-out. That’s incredible! The glitter primer can also be used on your body if you’re into body glitter. By the way, the shade I’m showing is the shade “fyre” - a gorgeous green. You can see in the swatches the glitter primer makes the glitter much more opaque and it adheres to the skin significantly better. I recommend looking for eye safe glitter. The NYX’s texture is quite tacky, so be sure to finish applying any other matte shadows before using this because it will be difficult to blend on top. I use this glitter glue most often for my older shimmer shadows. It’s also great for this of us with hooded eyes (raises hand) that experience a ton of shimmer transfer into the crease. It won’t completely stop the transfer, but it definitely helps. I fully recommend adding a glitter primer to your primer collection. At this price point, it’s a steal for the quality! #CheriePartner

Practicing My Wedding Makeup!
I’m getting married in two weeks - ahhhhh!!! My fiancé and I are having a very small ceremony and dinner with close friends/family on 9/6. Next summer we’ll have a big celebration when things are safer (hopefully). I’m going to be doing my own hair and makeup. I’ve practiced a couple times, but this look is the highest contender (judge being my very picky and natural beauty-loving fiancé). I wanted a look that provided soft definition and glowy skin. I’ve reviewed a few of these on Cherie before, and recommend all of these items. Face: touch in SOL - No Poreblem Primer raved about this before, great for all skin types, somewhat covers pores, extends wear of makeup URBAN DECAY - Stay Naked Weightless Foundation lightweight, medium-buildable coverage, natural matte finish (my shade is 30NN) e.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer excellent coverage, not drying, stays put (my shade is “light peach” HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Edit Volume 4 this was limited edition from 2018, but you can get a very similar bronzer from their permanent line, and the finishing powders are sold as singles too. Provides a bit of luminosity and gives the skin an ethereal finish. Hourglass products are expensive, but worth it. tarte - Hamptons Weekender Contour Palette I used the bronzer and blush from this. Great palette for fair-medium skin tones. Bronzer leans more neutral. Charlotte Tilbury - Beauty Highlighter Wand i used the shade “spotlight” (silvery/pinky). It looks melted into my face! It’s absolutely stunning but a bit pricey ($38), so I’d give it 4.5/5 stars. Eyes: persona - Identity Eyeshadow Palette high-quality, buttery shimmers, creamy mattes. MILANI - MILANI Eyeshadow Primer I use this all the time. It’s great for the price! I did apply some random false lashes from Shop Miss A but I can’t find which ones. Mascara would work just fine. Lips: I forgot to feature my lip products in the flat lay, so I tagged them in my “selfies”! I used Charlotte Tilbury - Matte Revolution Lipstick in “Pillowtalk” with lilah b. - Luxe Lip Oil Mini Duo shade “b elegant” on top. Pillowtalk is a my lips but better shade (pink-ish) and “b elegant” lip oil is a nude gloss. Love the color combo!! There are NO filters on these photos, by the way!

Well all have that Go-To Look, weather it’s the infamous gold copper eye & nude lip or a personalize signature look, everybody has that look that whenever they are going out or need a makeup look for any occasion they have one that is their tried & true For me personally my signature look is a brown smokey, it literally goes with everything and you can level up the smoke to match the occasion ( whether day or night ). Over the years my brown smokey’s have evolved and I eventually went to MAC & made my own palette of my favorite colors to achieve my perfect smokey! This palette i made is BrownGirl Friendly ( so listen up my melanin cuties! ) & it only consist of 4 shadows (2 shimmers & 2 mattes) 2 Mattes MAC - MAC Eyeshadow in Brown Script MAC - MAC Eyeshadow in Swiss Chocolate 2 Shimmers MAC - MAC Eyeshadow in Amber Lights MAC - MAC Eyeshadow in Antiqued These 4 shadows can literally create endless looks and can get pretty smokey if you build them up right or with a great pencil brush to smoke that lash line out chile! *i made this mini palette a couple years ago when MAC had a create your own palette promo, but you can still buy these shadows individually on the website*

I haven’t put on any make up since March. I haven’t put together a look since last October! I was scrolling through some of my pictures and found this oldie, but goody. I was a unicorn for Halloween at my former bartending job. ARDELL - Wispies Lash have never once failed me and the pigmentation in the MORPHE - Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette is absolutely stunning! Didn’t run or fall all night long. Who else is ready to get back to putting together looks for more than just a zoom meeting??

But man this is IT, the liner and it’s super fine point help get the details just right and at a price point of $8 you can’t beat that quality!!!

MORPHE - 35I Icy Fantasy Artistry Palette This eyeshadow palette wons my heart. It has 35 different colors and is suitable for all kinds of occasions.  Moreover, it has some bright matte color, which is relatively rare in eyeshadow palettes。 As you can see from the picture, the whole color is very dreamy. I guess all the girls will like it! The glitter color feels slippery and soft. There are several colors that can even be used as highlights. Bright matte eye shadow needs to be matched with eyelashes and eyeliner. The only cons of this plate is that it has less matte color, but its packaging is very attractive. So if you wanna bright matte

I have officially become OBSESSED with bright colors! I truly believe anyone can rock them. You just need to find colors and placements that make you happy. My go to simple look for brights is one shade on the lip and blended into the crease, with a shimmer down the middle of the crease onto the lid. It's especially great if you have hooded lids like I do. The shadows on my eyes are from Huda Neon Brights pink palette for $29. I love this palette so much. A couple of the shades look similar on the eye but i still love the rest of the palette. What are your thoughts on brights?? Let's talk!
