Easy (five minute!) makeup for ZOOM Meetings
Doing my makeup and feeling put-together is one of my favorite things, however I don’t always have the time or energy to be able to achieve a full-face beat every day. Soft and gentle glam, I use this look when I want to feel ~soft~ and glowy, but only spend minimal time on it. I start with NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer

Glowing Natural-glam Fall Makeup
Natural glam is some of my favorite makeup to rock, and fall makes it even better with all of the delicious warm tones and golds. I always love to play up my eyes and highlight to get a lit from within glow that complements the warm neutrals I use for my shadows and lips. Using the inspiration of golden hour and the changing colors of the leaves never fails 🍁 For my eyes, I used a mixture of NATASHA DENONA - Mini Nude Eyeshadow Palette and my HUDA BEAUTY - The New Nude Eyeshadow Palette to get the perfect mix of warm tones and golds. I start by blending the camel color from natasha in my crease, and deepen it with the next darkest brown in the palette (a chocolate) on my outer V. I take my finger and press crave from huda onto the center of my lid, layering my highlight on the inner corner and smoking my lower lash line out with the same chocolate colour. The duo-chrome shadows in the huda palette is extra fun, and adds extra dimension to the look; I love the shift of crave and daydream. I add a dot of highlight to the center of my lower lash line as well. I dont line in this look, but use a few coats of a dark black mascara like CHANEL - Le Volume de Mascara which doesn’t smudge or flake, and applies easily with little clumping for long and voluminous lashes. I darken my brows to give a more structured look to my eyes. I’ve been loving the Rare Beauty - Brow Harmony Pencil and Gel which makes my brows look naturally tinted and sculpted for a more elegant look. I didnt contour in this look, but layered on benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzing Powder liberally with a darker bronzer powder still in a warmer shade CHANEL - LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW Sheer Powder I don’t contour because for this look i’m sticking with only warm tones, and my contour shade is cool. I mix in my blush, EM COSMETICS - Heaven’s Glow: Magic Hour Blush which truly transfers the colour of magic onto the face, and top it with my Charlotte Tilbury - Beauty Highlighter Wand that melts into the skin and gives a heavenly glow. For my lips, I used a mix of Charlotte Tilbury - Matte Revolution Lipstick and EM COSMETICS - EM Cosmetics Lip Cushion for perfect warm nude pink tones. What’s your go-to look? Would you try this out? Let me know what you think down below! 💕
Top Fall Beauty Picks! Lips and Brows 😍
Each season I love revamping my makeup wardrobe with some of the newest drops, in order to test them out and see if anything stacks up to my tried and true favorites. This fall season, I picked up some new brow and lip products, and these are the ones I keep reaching for that really stood up to my wear and application tests! All of these products are stellar. First up is PATRICK TA - Major Beauty Headlines Matte Suede Lipstick and the matching liner PATRICK TA - Monochrome Moment Precision Lip Crayon which both glide on like a dream. There’s no patching or skipping, and the true color pay-off with this red is there after just one swipe. It’s not mask safe, but perfect for a facetime or zoom call where you want to look classic and put together, from a professional meeting to a cute virtual date. This is more of a blue-red that is not too bright, that I personally find is very flattering on all skin types! Red is usually not my go-to, but I love the flattering shade (makes teeth look whiter too!) and ease of application. This is now my perfect red. EM COSMETICS - Soft Blur Velvet Lip Liner and the EM COSMETICS - EM Cosmetics Lip Cushion are both mask safe, and I use them on days I want to wear makeup but don’t want to destroy the inside of my mask. The liner is truly blurring and a dream for over lining; it doesn’t smudge or look harsh. The brown and nude colors are absolutely perfect for fall looks. The lip cushion not only is a beautiful universally flattering shade, it is my top day-time lip balm with a slew of hydrating ingredients. Glossier. - Boy Brow needs to move over, because there’s a new brow product in town that sets brows even better. Rare Beauty - Brow Harmony Pencil and Gel sets my brows for hours without them looking hard or crunchy. It also comes with an additional brow pencil that doesn’t smudge and makes light strokes for hairs. I really love this setting gel though, I was in 100 degree heat for 2.5 hours and my brows didn’t move at all. If you want to buy anything from this haul, this is the product. Comes in a myriad of shades (I use blonde!) that aren’t too pigmented but make brows look fuller and more luscious. I hope this review of new fall products helps you! Are there any makeup products you would like to see reviewed in the future?

Mwah!! XO My favorite lip glosses and lip stains
1. BURT’S BEES - Tinted Lip Oil My favorite everyday gloss! Hydrating. Natural looking. Comes in a pen with a brush applicator. I’m wearing Carmel Cloud here. 2. HONEST - Honest Beauty Tinted Lip Balm This one is also a good hydrating gloss. More of a sheer wash. Less glossy. Wearing Fruit Punch here. 3. Glossier. - Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick Probably my least favorite in terms of hydration. But I love the Kool Aid stain color it gives. Wearing Jam here. 5. YVES SAINT LAURENT - Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain Most color. Feels satiny on lips. 6. BUXOM - Pillowpout Creamy Plumping Lip Powder I seriously love this stuff. It gives me just a little more definition and the color is like natural lip color amped up! Wearing Dolly here.
Generation G Looks Pretty Ggggood 👄
I love lipstick, but as someone who is always sipping, snacking and chewing gum, it can be a struggle to keep it on. That’s why I was excited to try Glossier’s Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick. It’s supposed to look sheer and a bit, um worn (? I couldn’t think of a better descriptive word!). I chose the lipstick in the shade Zip, which is a pretty poppy red. I always love this sort of orangey red shade because it makes my eyes look crazy blue. The lipstick does what it says it will do. It provides a sheer wash of color that is buildable. I love the way it looks. It also wears off in a nice, not too noticeable way. I’m giving it four out of five stars only because it’s a little uncomfortable to wear. If you have dry lips it will not feel nice. Honestly, if half stars were possible, I’d give this 4.5, but all in all, I’m a fan! I’m probably going to buy another shade or two. Which do you recommend? Glossier. - Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick

Are they worth the hype?! FULL REVIEW!
One brand love, @benefitcosmetics 🥰 finally reviewing some products from one of my favorite makeup brands - benefit! 💖 • benefit - Cyber Monday Free Porefessional Face Primer Deluxe Sample With Brand Purchase - been using this for years, one of my favorite and go-to primers. Yall know I have big pores and this really helps me blur them out 😭 it has this silk like balm consistency that feels really lightweight on skin. It excellently works for minimizing pores and out of all my primers here, this one lasts the longest!!! One of the best primers I’ve tried so far but a little bit pricey too 🥲 • benefit - Benefit Tinted Cheek & Lip Stain - to be honest, I don’t really like this one. It dries out my lips and doesn’t really last all day. I have to reapply every time. And not a fan of the formula and faint rose smell 😔 • benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzer - THE BEST!!!!! I would repurchase this over and over. This is the perfect shade not too dark and too light. I wear this for my everyday makeup! It looks so natural on me and it’s so easy to build up. 💕 • benefit - High Brow Eyebrow Highlighter - Just a simple highlighting pencil for brows and inner corners of the eye. Just the right amount of highlight and smooth texture. ☺️ • benefit - Goof Proof Brow Pencil - I SWEAR benefit has the best brow products!!! I emptied this pencil so quick. I love the formula of the pencil, looks really natural on my brows, stays all day and blends beautifully. Best brow product ever, HANDS DOWN. 🙌🏻 • benefit - 24-Hour Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel - Another great product from benefit, this definitely holds my brows in place without feeling wet or sticky and keeps the pigment of the brow product as well. No crunchy feeling at all, works really well with other brow products. • benefit - Free Roller Lash Mascara Deluxe - Not really my favorite, formula leaves smudges under my eyes. Though it makes my lashes lengthy but doesn’t curl and is really clumpy. Overall, I love @benefitcosmetics! I really look forward to trying all their brow products because they are THE BEST!!!! Also, I wanna try their other makeup products as well. 🤞🏻 #benefit #benefitcosmetics
He want that cake cake cake 🍰 🎂
Hey Cherie Fam! 🍒 I attempted to do a Christmas look today with the cake palette from Glamlite, but I failed miserably. I used the shade “red velvet” thinking it would be red, but it turned out to be a fuchsia. My lids are supposed to be green, but it turned out to be teal so now this look turned to be a cotton Candy look 😢 Anyway, this is a great rainbow palette 🌈 but if you’re looking for a true red, there isn’t a shade in here. The shimmers aren’t a true green either. It’s not exactly primary colors of a rainbow palette, but I love the formula. To achieve this look, I used: 1️⃣ Red velvet and packed it all over the crease then I blended it 2️⃣ I grabbed a smaller brush and dipped in to cranberry to blend the edges of red velvet 3️⃣ I cut my crease and packed avocado all over my lid. This shade is from the burger slider palette 4️⃣ I placed cinnamon on my inner corner 5️⃣ Red velvet, cranberry and raspberry on the lower lash 6️⃣ Mascara and falsies. I used house of lashes in demure lite Check out out my Instagram because I’m doing 12 days of Christmas. I will be posting a look everyday until Christmas. Happy holidays all! Xoxo, Francesca
Should You Use Setting Spray? + Tips ❤️
Setting spray can be our best friend or worst nightmare. I’ve been testing out this theory with URBAN DECAY - All Nighter Long Lasting Setting Spray Jumbo & Travel Duo I wanted to see how it preformed under different conditions (sweat, dryness, oily, days where I have acne, dewy makeup etc.) to see if there were any changes. Here are my results and some tips when choosing your setting spray! Setting sprays are used to set and revive your makeup. They’re great if you rather not use powders on your face, as they can be quite drying depending on what you use. Sweat/Sebum/Combination Skin: I did my daily makeup routine and sprayed this stuff on. I usually opt for a satin/second skin finish for foundations and use powder contour/blush/setting powder for the rest of my face. Theeen, I went hiking. 🤣 It was all for the experiment! As the sun was beating down my face in 95 degree weather, sweat and oil started to produce. It was fine for the first two hours, but there was only so much that the “temperature control” features this product could only do. By the end of the hike, my forehead, nose, chin and wherever else there was excessive sweat/oil broke down the makeup I had on. What does this mean for everyone else? If you have oily skin or live in a humid climate, this is NOT the setting spray for you. Instead, #Ben Nye - Final Seal[products]#[FourStars] may be a better choice. This stuff is STRONG when it comes to oily skin. I wouldn’t recommend this for dry skin because you can definitely feel things “tightening” up as it dries. Urban Decay’s setting spray is great for indoor activities with minimal sweating/oil production. However, if you’re accidentally creating puddles of your body fluids...not a great choice. Dry skin/Acne-Prone: Everyone’s acne triggers can vary from one another, so I can only speak from my own experience when it comes to that. When I use this product on my skin, I personally don’t break out. I actually enjoy using this when I want a matte foundation to have a slight glow, especially if the foundation makes my skin feel dry/tight when used by itself. It is a good product that helps with slight hydration. If you have dry skin, this can definitely help in ensuring you don’t look as cakey due to the hydration properties. Your makeup should last you all day unless you’re dealing with a couple factors that we discussed above. If you find your skin to be too dewy or shiny after using this, take some setting powder and set it in area you want to be more matte. This will help create dimension in your face! Type of makeup: The type of makeup you wear underneath does impact how the product will function for you at the end of the day. Some formulations just don’t pair with other formulations. It can be disappointing but it’s normal. When using a ton of dewy products on the skin, it might be better to use a setting powder like BECCA - Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder to help longevity instead.
Powder for Dry Skin? What???
BECCA - Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder We all know putting powder on dry skin won’t end well, but this little beauty changes all of that! Made with soothing and hydrating ingredients, it won’t flake or dry your skin out. I use this to set my under eye concealer and guess what? No creasing! I can’t be more excited about a product than I am about this powder. I love it! Key Benefits: • Sets & refreshes • Provides all day moisture • Blurs the appearance pores & lines • Improves skin tone Key Ingredients: Powder Infused With 50% Water: refreshes & cools the skin on contact.
Easy / Flawless Summer Makeup 🌟
The Em Cosmetics products are my favorite for summer. Lightweight and glowy, they are the perfect compliment to summer skin. My two favorite products are the EM COSMETICS - Color Drops Serum Blush blush drops and EM COSMETICS - Heaven’s Glow: Magic Hour Blush Both of these sit beautifully on the skin, making it look like “yours-but-better”. They also last the whole day and hold up beautifully. EM COSMETICS - Limited Edition Divine Skies Eyeshadow Palette is beautifully pigmented and one of my new favorite travel palettes. With the number of shadows, it’s not overwhelming but there are very many looks you can create. They blend beautifully and don’t crease without eye primer, and there is minimal fallout. The lip products are amazingly hydrating. I keep either one of these in my purse for emergencies. They look great with or without other makeup, keep my lips soft and smooth, and the shade is universally flattering. EM COSMETICS - True Gloss Lip Gloss Is in my opinion one of the best feeling lipglosses on the market

My Updated “No Makeup” Makeup Routine ✨
Hey Cherie Fam! 🍒 I’ve been trying to find the perfect no makeup makeup look lately and I think I finally found the right combination for complexion products to use. I’ve been on a hunt lately and have been trying to find the perfect tinted moisturizer, sheer foundation and a setting powder. I used Glossier Perfecting Tint in G7 all over my face and the Stretch Concealer in G8 for under the eyes. For cheeks, I used Glossier’s Cloud Paint and mixed Puff and Haze then set my fave with Becca Light Shifter finishing veil in Star Hugger. The result is a natural dewy finish. My skin looks like skin, but luminous. You can still see my imperfections such as acne scars, but my complexion is evened out. I am also glowing ✨ I think going for the cloud paint made me look even more “effortless” rather than using a powder blush. When I apply powder blush, you can see it sitting on top of my skin which is a huge sign that I’m wearing makeup. Not necessarily a bad thing, but you don’t want that when you’re going for the “I woke up like this” look. Glossier. - Perfecting Skin Tint Glossier. - Stretch Concealer Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color BECCA - Light Shifter Finishing Veil Setting Powder For my eyes, I used 3 eyeshadow shades. I used my Natasha Denona Mini Nude Palette. I used Quoin all over my crease, Lumino on my lids and Soil as an eyeliner. On some days I leave my lids bare. I still do like to go heavy on the mascara. NATASHA DENONA - Mini Nude Eyeshadow Palette For the lips, I like to keep it bare. I have extremely dry lips and I try not to put anything on them as much as possible. I just use Kosas - Kosasport Lipfueland a nude hydrating gloss. COLOURPOP - So Juicy Plumping Gloss I never knew that looking “naturally pretty” and “effortless” is actually so much work! It still took me a good 15 minutes to get this whole thing done What does your “no makeup” makeup routine look like? Xoxo, Francesca 💋
Fake Having Perfect Skin!
Hey Cherie Fam! 🍒 I am fortunate enough to receive Becca’s light shifter in a VoxBox from Influenster. I received the dewing tinted moisturizer in moondance and the finishing veil setting powder starhugger in exchange for my honest review. I have been using this duo for a few weeks now on my no makeup makeup days and I am loving it. The dewing tinted moisturizer is very sheer and buildable without looking cakey. However, even when you build it or can only provide so much coverage so if you’re looking that “made up look” this isn’t the right product for you. You can still see all my skin imperfections, but evens my skin out and gives it a radiant and luminous finish so it is pretty convincing that it is my natural skin. I have dry skin and this contains Hyaluronic acid and provides rapid hydration so this is perfect for me. BECCA - Light Shifter Dewing Tint Tinted Moisturizer The light shifter finishing veil setting powder is super weightless and gives a satin and luminous finish. The texture is ultra smooth and perfect setting powder to set a sheer coverage foundation or a tinted moisturizer. This is buildable and you can layer it without giving your skin that “powdery look”. This product and the light shifter tinted moisturizer helps me to trick my friends into thinking that I am genetically gifted and have perfect skin 🤪. On top of that, I love how it gives me that editorial glow and love the compact and cute packaging. BECCA - Light Shifter Finishing Veil Setting Powder The price for both items are pretty standard for a high end tinted moisturizer and setting powder. The tinted moisturizer retails for $30 while the setting powder retails for $34. What is your favorite complexion product for that no makeup makeup look? Xoxo, Francesca 💋 DISCLAIMER I was sent a complimentary sample in exchange for my honest review
IM BRINGING THESE INTO 2020
I love how effortlessly beautiful these products are- from the way the blend, build, and their pigment is strong but not overpowering. Charlotte Tilbury makes some of the best in the game. Her contour and highlight wands are easy to use, they blend out almost effortlessly- while expensive I would say they’re perfect for the beginner. Patrick Ta’s blush is a dream. The color is subtle but can be built up, gives the natural rosy look- and isn’t harsh for those who love blush on the nose
a BOMB highlighter!
hey y’all! hope you all are doing well. 💕 i wanted to share this everglow highlighter by OFRA COSMETICS. ITS SO GOOD!!!! the shimmer and pigment is UNREAL! it comes in 3 different shades, and they all are brown skin friendly. they blend in beautifully and very smoothly, leaving behind a blinding glow. and it lasts such a long time. what is your go-to highlighter?

Flawless Base! Makeup for Your Skin but Better
Because I spend so much time and energy getting my skin to look even and glowing on its own, I want my makeup base to enhance rather than hide it. This is why light or medium coverage crème products are my go-to for a flawless base! I start out with a cleansed and moisturized face. If I’m going to be outside I’ll also go in with COOLA - Classic Full Spectrum 360 Sun Silk Drops SPF 30 (which I already have a post about!). It adds the perfect dewy base and has no flashback. I let it set for 15 minutes and then start my makeup. To prime, I use TATCHA - The Silk Canvas Protective Primer which is heavenly. It doesn’t clog my pores, and leaves my skin hydrated prepped and smooth for my next steps. If I know it will be hot or humid, I also go in with either thebenefit - The POREfessional Face Primer or thebeautyblender - Pore Minimizing Primer on my T-zone; more oily areas. Neither of these pill if layered with the tatcha primer and compliment it beautifully. Next, I go in and spot treat with concealer. I don’t use foundation! I start with NARS - Soft Matte Complete Concealer around my nose and lips, or any other red areas. I use a brush and pat it on the areas I want to cover, let it sit for a minute, and then blend it out with a medium concealer brush. This gives more coverage without having to layer more product! If I still have discoloration or a particularly red or dark pimple, I go over it with a smaller brush using tarte - Shape Tape Concealer as this is very high coverage. Again I let it sit, then blend. Another trick is using creme products to get that lit-from-within glow! For blush, I love Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color and liquid blush drops fromEM COSMETICS - Color Drops Serum Blush as both of these blend in effortlessly and look like your own skin! Both of these blushes set themselves without the use of powder. For Highlighter, Charlotte Tilbury - Beauty Highlighter Wand is the best in my opinion. It blends it without looking cakey or fake, but adds the dimension of face tune in real life! This also sets itself and doesn’t require power. If contouring, both KKW BEAUTY - Crème Contour Stick (I use Light 1) and the FENTY BEAUTY - Match Stix Matte Skinstick (I use amber!) layer well with the other creme products. I don’t have issues with patching or pilling, and I enjoy how both sit and feel on the skin as creme contours can feel heavy. When set there is no transfer. I set with BECCA - Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder which I’ve raved about before. No flashback, and keeps the dimensions of the creme products. It doesn’t cake on, but adds another layer of blurring perfection!
Are these dupes?? Beauty Blender The Leveler is a lightweight, smoothing primer that helps reduce the appearance of pores, redness, and uneven texture. This primer is very similar to the Dr. Brandt Pores No More Primer. The Dr. Brandt primer is a two-in-one pore refiner and makeup primer that helps diminish the look of pores and imperfections, mattifies the skin, and creates a smooth canvas. Both primers claim to be matte while smoothing our the looks of pores and wrinkles. These are so similar the only true difference is the price! The Dr Brandt primer retails for $45 at Sephora whole the beauty blender primer is $32 at Sephora. I will say I like the dr Brandt more and it has a more medicinal smell to it. Both perform the same. dr. brandt - Pores No More Pore Refiner Primer beautyblender - Pore Minimizing Primer

Minty eyes and dewy skin 🌿
It was cloudy day today and I wanted to experiment with greens, I wanted to do something bold and bright. I usually never reach for greens but I have a colorful eyeshadow palette and looking at the colors males me want to use them. I ended up with a dewy minty eye look. For primer (not pictured) I used touch in sol glassy balm primer. It hydrate my skin and makes it look dewy. touch in SOL - Pretty Filter Glassy Skin Balm For foundation I used the pūrlisse youth glow vitamin C CC cream spf 50 in Fair. I got this in my Ipsy bag a couple months ago and I’ve been loving it. pūrlisse - Youth Glow Vitamin C CC Cream SPF 50 Concealer I used a cult classic, NARS radiant creamy concealer in vanilla. This is one of my favorites. It gives me a natural look. NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer For brows I used my absolute favorite brow pencil and it’s the elf instant brow pencil. I’ve been using this for years and it’s the one I always come back to. Super affordable too! e.l.f. - Instant Lift Brow Pencil BH cosmetics take me back to Brazil palette- I love this palette. So many different colors to choose from and really pigmented. bh - Take Me Back to Brazil 35 Color Pressed Pigment Palette I used my essence eyeliner pen in young and free (pastel yellow). It’s a super cute color. I decided to add some dots to the outer edge of my green eyeshadow. essence - essence Eyeliner Pen I used milk makeup kush mascara and it’s really nice. It separates my lashes and makes them look longer too. Milk MAKEUP - KUSH High Volume Mascara I used Sephora collection gel lip liner in creme de la creme to line my lips a little bit. SEPHORA COLLECTION - Rouge Gel Lip Liner For my lips I used glossier’s vinylic lip in the shade disco. It’s like a terra cotta/orangey tint to it. It’s my first time using it and I’m already in love. It also has some shine to it so my lips won’t be dehydrated. Glossier. - Vinylic Lip High Shine Lacquer For blush I used glossier’s cloud paint in dawn, it’s a orangey sunny coral color. I used a little bit of this and it’s super pretty. I love it. Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color

My fav drug store product of 2020 for only $8!
Guys, I seriously can’t tell you how much I am in love with this primer! I’ve previously used Lancôme, Smashbox, Urban Decay and CoverFX primers which are all significantly more expensive than the US$8 / AU$16 for the e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer This product is legit amazing! It has the most soft silky texture on the skin, fills your pores but doesn’t cause congestion or breakouts and makes my makeup look flawless! It’s a pale pink in the packaging but once it’s smooths into the skin completely disappears. There is no strong smell or fragrances so is completely pleasant to use. It’s considered by many beauty bloggers to be a dupe for the TATCHA - The Silk Canvas Protective Primerwhich I haven’t tried but at US$52 / AU$83 is roughly between 5-7 times more expensive depending on where you live! If you’re in the market for a primer which not only feels lovely on your skin but makes your pores appear smooth and your makeup flawless then I highly recommend you give the e.l.f. Poreless Putty Primer a go 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Perfect Primer (for all skin types) 💜🦄
I feel like primer is the most underrated step of the makeup routine! Many people will blame their foundation, powder, or setting spray for their makeup not lasting.. when it's really your primer or lack-of to blame! 😲 You wouldn't paint a wall without using a primer, so why would you not prime something even more precious before applying your products? The TATCHA - The Silk Canvas Protective Primer is one of the best primers I have ever used! You only need a pea sized amount of this primer to cover your whole face, meaning that this product is worth the extra coin you have to spend on it 💸 By helping to fill your pores and give you an aribrushed look 🤩 There have been a few days I've skipped foundation cause this primer alone makes my skin look so good! Will I repurchase - Totally! This primer is great and you can use any high- or low-end foundation and have amazing rests!
Full Face Glam!!!
Friday night and I got glammed up!!! My go-to for a full glam is Fenty’s Glass Slipper (Clear) almost every weekend, I love the texture, the shine, and even the smell. I keep it with me wherever I go, and will buy at least two at a time. To add to the list, Fenty foundation, Anastasia contour kit (light- medium), Anastasia dip brow, and another classic fave is Benefits Ultra High Beam. I love a full glam look, but bare face is arguably becoming my fave. Makeup is so exciting because it’s a chance to be creative, but what I’m really looking forward to is taking care of the skin I’m in underneath it all. 🥺

Monochrome, glittery makeup ✨
I love a good pink monochrome look, for this I took inspiration from Sanrio’s Charmmy Kitty 🎀 although I don’t think I made it much justice. I’ve been loving grabbing inspiration from characters from my childhood to do my makeup, or just from different interests that you wouldn’t think you could get inspo from! Monochrome looks are still my go-to since they’re so easy to do, but I’ve been feeling very limited since my eyelids are so hooded ✌️😔 if you have any looks for hooded eyes I could try please refer me! Or if you have hooded eyes lmk how you do your makeup ☺️

Foxy eyes 💫 👀💫
During social distancing, I’ve been trying to keep thinking positively through self care. I’ve been playing around with makeup and testing out new looks using products I already have at home. Enter: this foxy eye look which is a far cry from my usually minimalist “no makeup” makeup look. I’m pretty proud with how this turned out and it has some cool 90s vibes. Plus, it showcases some of my favorite (affordable) makeup products!

LUMINOUS SILK FOUNDATION
Ok guys. I wanted to hate this foundation, I really did. I bought the travel size because I NEVER finish foundations, and even the travel size is a whopping $42. It’s a rip off! But the finish is just so, so good. My skin looks radiant and even without too much coverage. It’s very buildable, too. ARMANI beauty - Luminous Silk Foundation
Charlotte Tilbury-Lip Cheat Lip Liner
P I N K 💗
This is classic for pink lovers! I’m attempting a crossover between the soft girl/ e girl aesthetic and I’m pretty happy with the results! I started with a simple light pink eyeto blend it with a brighter, neon pink and top it with my shiniest glitters. After that I drew a dramatic winged liner to tie everything together but the main focus are lips and cheeks! I put a lot of bright cool toned pink blush on cheeks and nose and then drew a heart on in with concealer. For the lips I used a pink lipstick topped with a gloss to help me diffuse the colour and give some shine.
