For someone with straight hair, I was very lucky with how well my hair integrity is, I even have volume without a blowout, but the blowout always takes the look to a whole new level and normally makes my hair a lot less oily for longer 🥰 Here is exactly what I do to get the best blowout every single time!👍🏽 If you still don’t have the REVLON - One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer GIRL, wyd? Everyone needs this as this is legit a necessity in life! This tool is genuine magic! I love using this every other week or when I know I’ll be heading out places all week and I don’t want to fix up my hair that day (yes I have straight hair but sometimes there can be kinks you may need to smooth out with a straightener), using this cuts that out So straight out of the shower, I use a the #VITIV - Daily hair vitamin[products]#[FourStars] which is a leave in condioner. I use only two pumps of this and it’s slowly growing on me! I truly love the way my hairs feels after using this as it helps the overall smoothness of my hair (especially after dyeing it a couple times) Then I use a my hair serum from function of beauty - Custom Hair Serum which I customized and good lord is this AMAZING! It works perfectly for my hair, the two smallest drops goes such a long way! I always start from my tips to the roots to ensure I get the moisture through the drier areas So once these products are in my hair, I wait till my hair is about 80% dry and then go in with my blow drying brush and brush under neath each section, make sure to lift to add volume. I also like to focus my brush from the base upwards around my face and roll the ends into the brush and let it loose which helps frame your face as well! ☺️👏🏽 It’s so simple, there is really no right or wrong but do focus on framing your face when working on the top section and adding tons of volume to get the best look that lasts all week💕 #cheriepartner

2020 HALLOWEEN VIBES🎃
I know Halloween this year is going to be a little different but I still wanted to get into the spirit somehow! 🎃 Years ago, Chrisspy on YT created this dope gangster clown look and I know I wanted to give it a shot this yet so here is my take on it! I have to say, this isn’t terribly hard but it’s time consuming to ensure everything is blended and the lines are looking straight! 👍🏽 STEPS make sure you have a very mattified base so the pencil liner and liquid DONT drag so I used COVER FX - Power Play Foundation and then set my entire face with the NIKKIA JOY COSMETICS - Velvet Finishing Powder which really holds and sets the skin in place I then applied blush because DUH it’s a clown look 🤡 so I used the AOA studio - Perfect Powder Blush to add a flush of orange to my cheeks with a really light concealor, I drew three semi circles; two above my brows and the other on my chin using the laura mercier - Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Concealer and just used that to carve them out and set with my powder as well for the entire look so the liner, I used the NYX - Epic Ink Liner and to blend out the liner in the middle of my face, I used the black shadow from the MORPHE - Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette I also used the brown tones in this to add some brown shadow to my crease for my lips, I used the SEPHORA COLLECTION - Rouge Lip Tint and then added the black shadow around the edges and blended it in and used the liquid liner to add the smile lines And then throw on your costume! This one is super easy because all you need is a white tank top and a plaid shirt (a red/navy or red/black are the best choices), throw on some jewellery if you want like hoops. Button on the top button of the shirt, and that’s it! For my hair, I went for a slick back look which I loved for this badass look but you can curl your hair, even throw on a bandana, just play around🤗 #cheriepartner

TIPS & TRICKS FOR OILY SKIN💙
for those of you who have oily skin like myself, we all know what it’s like to constantly keep blotting sheets on you for touch ups and powdering constantly to ensure your skin remains matte and looking nice all day. Here are some simple tips and tricks to help your makeup last longer without looking heavy or cakey!👏🏽 TIPS make sure your skin is hydrated before starting! This is a key step to ensure your makeup not only glides over the skin smoothly but it also helps with the over production of oil ( the more matte and dry your skin, the more oil it will produce) i used the goodhabit - Water Jelly Dew Cream then go in with a gripping primer! I use the Milk MAKEUP - Hydro Grip Primer which is damn good and a little goes a long way. I blend this out with my fingers and it works super well each time! Make sure to let it sit for a second after application before moving on to foundation for oily skin, use a satin/ matte finish foundation for your skin! I stick with either the L'ORÉAL - Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation which is a great choice for winters where your skin could be more dry so better to use a satin, or I use the COVER FX - Power Play Foundation which is a favourite of mine and always makes my skin look super nice oh and use a good coverage concealor as well and ALWAYS BLEND WITH A DAMP SPONGE! after your skin is blended, grab any loose translucent powder to set, I used #NIKKIA JOY COSMETICS - Velvet finishing powder[products]#[FiveStars] which is amazing for setting my oily skin and really making sure I look airbrushed without the cakey ness! Here is the rule with powder, apply it also with your damp sponge and roll it over the skin while pressing. This way it will set the skin and press in the powder kind of like baking without letting it sit on the skin and using just enough for the skin for your oily lids, make sure to always use a eye shadow primer, not a concealor. The reason is because concealors have some hydrating and oily bits in their formula so they glide over your skin and don’t dry it out. Apply that on oily lids will eventually ruin your Aleut makeup with all that build up. Primer I use is the URBAN DECAY - Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Primer Potion which is pretty good! I have to admit it’s growing on me these simple tips are really great for oily skin friends or even those stubborn summer nights when the heat is unbearable for any skin types but for me this is an all yes round thing I have to take care of so I’ve been able to perfect it over time ☺️

So halloween this year is probably going to be very different but we normally, we have to be ready to apply piles of heavy makeup to become a whole new character that night! 🌛 Being from the south Asian community, we are used to wedding season = heavy makeup for a whole week so I think over time, I have my routine pretty good to ensure my skin doesn’t go absolutely insane! Here are some of my tips for you!!☺️ So my oily skin, acne prone, sensitive skin friends, hydration is very important when wearing tons of makeup, even if you want your skin to be matte! SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask this is where I use this gem before makeup and even at the end of the night just to ensure I never loose any moisture from my skin where it feels right! This multipurpose protract not only helps with the way my makeup applies and looks, but also helps to heal and soothe my skin after taking it all off!👍🏽 Another amazing product you need to take preventative measure after removing a full face is PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator this is a HG in my routine whether I’m wearing a ton of makeup or not but a BHA is a must to really clear out the pores and to deep clean out all the gunk that maybe under the skin! 💎 using a BHA will help prevent any acne that maybe waiting to surface up or even any dirt that could eventually turn into a pimple and destroy it while keeping your skin smooth as butter😘 let’s talk about removal! When wearing heavy makeup, I’m very extra so I actually TRIPLE cleanse those nights! I first start off with my oil cleanse and recently I’ve been using the - Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil which I actually do enjoy. I haven’t noticed any breakouts from it and it actually really deep cleans everything off my skin! I massage this onto dry skin for a good amount of time and I’m very generous with the amount I use to make sure I breakdown EVERYTHING! Once I emulsify it with water and rub it in a little more and wash it off, it’s time for the next step Next up is my GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Waterproof Makeup Remover which I’ve been using for years! This is a crucial step I have to take for my sensitive skin. I use a cotton round soacked in this solution and rub it all over my skin, my hair like, jaw, neck and my ears! Please makeup sure you hit all these points to ensure you really get rid of that top layer before going in with your cleanser! Im telling y’all, these products and steps I take not only help me prevent my skin from going insane but also help with any acne that do come up! #cheriepartner

WHAT IS ANTI BLUE LIGHT SKINCARE?😱
let’s talk about blue light! We all know about the suns damage on the skin by UVA & UVB rays, but I don’t many people know that blue light from our phones, laptops and other screens could hav use damage as well! Blue light exposure can cause skin damaged such as colour change, inflammation and weakening of the skins surface. This also can cause issues and strain on your eyes. With blue light glasses becoming a huge part of the world, skincare is also taking over! 👏🏽 I haven’t had the chance to try tons of blue light skincare, however a new brand launched just blue light protective skincare and I was lucky enough to receive two products and wanted to shared them with you all!🤗 goodhabit - Glow Potion Oil Serum this oil serum has blue tansy, blue spirulina and hyaluronic acid which these products are supposed to help with protecting the skin, help reduce inflammation and smooth redness. With my oily skin, I do enjoy this, however I’m only giving it a 3/5 rating for now because I haven’t been consistent in my use of this so I can see the real benefits! goodhabit - Water Jelly Dew Cream this is one interesting product due to how jelly like this is! I wish it came with a spatula because using just your fingers doesn’t really pick up the product at all! However this is super hydrating and nourishing, has a blue tansu smell which I personally like and I know helps my acne and definitely keeps my skin hydrated all day without weighing it down! Personally I need to keep trying these out more and on a consistent bases. However I’m not sure what effects I should be swing by protecting my skin from blue light but eventually with more research that comes out, we will know! 💁🏽♀️ #cheriepartner

KBEAUTY SAVED MY SKIN🥰
I know tons of people now use Korean skincare products, however it’s been part of my routine for almost 4 years now and I haven’t looked back!☺️ SWIPE 👉🏽 for my raw skin!! Kbeauty is the one line of skincare I think everyone at least needs to try because not only is it affordable but the ingredients are insanely good and formulation is everything ✊🏽 it’s stuff you won’t get here from western brands, and if you do, it’s extremely overly priced When I first got into skincare to help with my acne, on a whim I decided to try a whole Korean line without even knowing. When my skin calmed down from using a line that had nothing to do with claiming to help you acne, I knew I had to do more research! 🥳 this is where I found out more about the kbeauty world and overtime, my collection has grown and these are some of my favourites💕 COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence an amazingly hydrating essence/serum gel that works wonderfully on damp skin kind of like a HA which has helped overall hydrate my skin, keep it plump and not dry it out + helps with any hyperpigmentation (it’s slow but effective) I'm from - Rice Toner another amazing toner that has rice extract and niacinamide added to really help hydrate and soothe the skin and immediately brighten my skin!! This is my go to morning toner and my second bottle because I’m in love!!❤️ THE FACE SHOP - Chia Seed Hydrating Lotion my pm toner snd the line that really started my kbeauty journey and helped completely clear my skin in a couple months! Chia seed is such a powerful ingredient in skincare and in food and my gosh is this hydrating and instantly soothing. I will forever to continue to buy from this line (especially the moisturizer) because I know it works for me all the time! I'm from - Mugwort Essence second bottle and I can never stop talking about it! After hearing about tea tree and it working sometimes for me, I found out about mugwort and how it’s referred to as the Korean tea tree but soothing and way less irritating and my gosh they got this right! One of my all time favourite products! I apply two layers am and pm and my skin instantly feels soothed and relaxed and also helps with any irritation or acne ☺️ COSRX - Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask I use this as a moisturizer during the night and even sometimes in the day! It’s super hydrating without being heavy. It also has some niacinamide for that brightening affect. It sinks right in and leaves your skin feeling moisturized and not greasy and my gosh, this is also wonderful under makeup! Again, kbeauty really knows what they are doing and my gosh, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to just stop using Korean skincare! #cheriepartner

☠️a zits worst nightmare☠️
These products are one of those things that I think everyone needs in their medicine cabinet. Pimple patches are a new innovated way to treat pimples without drying out your skin with harsh treatments. There are different kinds of patches though depending on what type of break out you have. For whiteheads: HERO COSMETICS - Mighty Patch Original for Madewell This patch is 100% hydrocolloid. You put these on dry skin over night (or whenever you want really) and by the morning or in a min of 6 hours you’ll see the gunk that the patch pulled out of your pimple. Once you take the patch off the pimple will be basically gone. These truly are incredible. For those deep under the skin pimples: HERO COSMETICS - Micropoint for Blemishes You know those horrible painful blemishes we get sometimes that don’t come to a head but are just this angry red bump of evil? These work wonderfully to kill that yucky spot with 173 micropoints that deliver the treatment (0.5% salicylic acid) to the pimple. When you apply these you have to push down for roughly 30 seconds and you can feel the points going into the pimple , it doesn’t hurt. By morning my angry demons where reduced or they came to a head where I could put the normal dots on and suck everything out without having to squeeze and irritate it more. Aftercare: HERO COSMETICS - Rescue Balm Now, sometimes after these pimple patches you are still left with a red dot on your face and some dryness. This cream is perfect for that! It is formulated with panthenol, beta glucan, and oligopeptides to not only moisturize and heal but to also gently exfoliate. This has toned down a lot of the inflammation I get with pimples! I also use it when I sometimes get out of hand and pop the zit because I have 0 self control.

💖Only 5 steps and you'll get fancy pink ombre nails🤗！
Hey, sis! I got a new nail look!💅💅 Last week, I successfully did pink ombre nails at home. The ombre is a recent nail art trend, which really looks fancy and I think these are the best nails I've ever had. I surprisingly found it quick and easy to paint and you can probably do as soon as you finish reading this simple tutorial! Paint nails with a nude colour. You can also choose white. Some colours blend better with a white base colour. Wait five minutes or until your nails are completely dry. Carefully align the make-up brush with the pink nail polish to your nails and gently dab it onto your nails until they are completely coloured. Don't stress yourself about being neat at this time as we will clean these up later. Immediately after dabbing one nail, gently apply a top coat to smooth colours and blend them in even more and then cure the first color coat in your LED or UV lamp. Repeat the fourth and fifth steps to ensure good color coverage and a smooth. Wait until your nails are completely dry. The final step is to dip your Q-Tip into your make-up remover and clean up the areas around your nails and finish with a nourishing cuticle oil. Isn't that very simple？！Hope you would love my "artwork" and this post can help you !💕
The BEST pore minimizing serum of 2019!
Natural alternatives have been found to be just as effective, and generally more gentle as traditional retinols. For example, Bakuchiol is a chemical compound/seed extract from the Bakuchi plant (widely used in Indian and Chinese medicine) that has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial properties. Most importantly, it has retinol functionality despite having no structural resemblance to the Vitamin A derivative at all!! Knowing this, I was so excited to win this Herbivore Bakuchiol serum in a giveaway. I’ve used it literally every night for almost two months and I’ve noticed a dramatic difference in the severity of my hormonal breakouts. I finally see that ✨pregnancy glow✨ that everyone keeps talking about!!! It’s a pretty viscous, slightly sticky formula but it absorbs FAST. I truly believe this product is the reason that my skin has stayed so even toned and healthy looking, despite all of the new products I introduce all of the time. Would 100000000% recommend this product if you have never tried retinols and want to get into them (without sacrificing your skin!).
BEST FACIAL OIL. EVER
HOLY GRAIL STATUS. If you have redness, irritation, acne or all of the above you need this oil in your life. They have a mini size available which is a perfect size to test out this product. I use 3 drops almost every night. If my skin is quite irritated from overuse of acids I will apply this under my moisturizer to really help the healing process. Otherwise I apply over my night cream to seal it all in.
