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
for oily skin, use a satin/ matte finish foundation for your skin! I stick with either the L'ORÉAL - Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation
after your skin is blended, grab any loose translucent powder to set, I used #NIKKIA JOY COSMETICS - Velvet finishing powder[products]# 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 Potionthese 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 ☺️

LETS GO TO THE CLUB🥂
ok guys, I know this looks super complicated but it’s actually super simple to create!!❤️ I ended up creating this look earlier in quarantine for a birthday look I would’ve totally worn this year but OFC corona had to ruin everything but I still ended up creating the look for fun and fell in love with the way it come out! 🥰 My skin is very oily, acne prone and sensitive but I got that down after so many years of doing skincare + makeup so I know exactly what products to help balance out my oils👍🏽 so let’s get to the main event, the eyes👀 STEPS ￼started by using the URBAN DECAY - Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Primer Potion all over the lid ￼the only palette and my FAVOURITE palette I think everyone needs is the ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Jackie Aina Eyeshadow Palette and I used the shades, ginger and edges in the crease and then credit in the outer corner and my lid shade, I was DYING to use sponsored for a look and I had to for this and my gosh was this vibrant snd in your face! FYI I didn’t use any spray or fix+ to help with the shimmer shade on the lid, just used a dry flat brush to apply it and that’s the amount of pigment I got! If you are going to buy one product from this, it has to be this if you can still find it!! ￼I used the black shadow from the MORPHE - Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette which is another favourite of mine in my stash! Ans smoked the black shade into my lash line with a slight wing ￼applied my favourite mascara which is the MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara which has been a repurchase and the reason why my lashes look like this in these pictures 😝 ￼finally to add a pop into my inner corner, I took my highlight MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Highlight Face Powder shade global glow on my brow bone and inner corners and my cheeks as well ￼and then to add a pop to my lower lash line, I took the NYX - Slide on Eye Pencil in a rich emerald green colour and applied it to my lower lash line along with the brown shades from the ABH palette to smoke out my lower lash line and omg, I’m obsessed ￼ofc for the lips, I had to use FENTY BEAUTY - Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer to finish off the look and that’s it! It’s actually super simple yet looks super intricate with the super BAM shimmer shade applied to my lid and I would’ve totally worn this out to a club for my bday! 🥳 #cheriepartner
BROWN EYES + BROWN EYESHADOW = 😘
Who doesn’t love some wonderful brown warm shades? Nobody cause everyone is obsessed! And since it’s fall time, I knew I wanted to create a fun fall inspired look that enhances my brown eyes without being overwhelming 💕 URBAN DECAY - Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Primer Potion started off by priming my lids with this since I have oily eyelids so we need to prime to hold the shadow FENTY BEAUTY - Snap Shadows Mix & Match Eyeshadow Palette so I’m using #7 cadet and the shade “good cookie” which is a BEAUTIFUL shimmery copper bronze tone that legit looks like skin is just glistening without being super crazy on the lids so it’s perfect for the fall time and as an everyday shade ✨ (the swatch on the last slide is not doing it justice but it’s beautiful!) FENTY BEAUTY - Sun Stalk'r Instant Warmth Bronzer used the shade caramel cutie in my crease first to blow out the other colours. I always start with this product because it’s legit the most perfect shade for everything I do! VESCA - Soft-Matte Bronzing Powder Kissed By used the shade maldives to add more depth into the outer corner. It’s perfect for contouring my face but also perfect to add a bit of depth before really building with other deeper shades MORPHE - Morphe X Manny MUA Glam Palette used the shades spellbound & howl to add more depth to the outer corner and buff it out on the lower lash line to create a more smokey vibe. Also used the highlight shade Apollo in my inner corners and my brow bone L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Original Mascara just to add to my top and bottom lashes. This is not waterproof but it’s super black so I think I need to try the waterproof version for it to help my curl and add the volume I love. So this look so truly my go to look during the fall months because of how warm yet sexy it really is and it’s super simple as well!! If you have yet to play around with the same colours as your eyes, I highly recommend it as it’s sooo fun! 😉 #cheriepartner

Milk hydro grip primer🔥!
I have been using the Milk hydro primer in my makeup routine for a couple weeks now, and I wouldn’t go back! At first the price made me a little iffy as $30 for a primer is high for me. But I’m so glad I did it! I have very dry skin, and a little goes a very long way. It feels cooling on my face, and leaves my face feeling plump. My foundation goes on smoothly with this primer, it grips my makeup and makes it stay throughout the day! Although bc of my dry skin I do moisturize before, and then apply facial oil and let it sit for about 2 minutes, then I go in with the primer and let that sit for about 2-3 minutes as well before I apply any makeup. Milk MAKEUP - Hydro Grip Primer
MILK MAKEUP IDENTICAL DUPE!!!
I can’t believe I found an identical dupe to the holy grail milk makeup hydro primer! 30 dollars compared to 6 dollars! As you can see, same color and consistency! I prefer the dupe over the actually milk makeup! It hydrates my skin better and doesn’t ball up when I apply my foundation. This is an amazing product and a must have for your makeup collection.

I used the deep brown shade blown out on my lid, into the crease and under my lash line for a soft smokey look. Then used the black shade to add a smudged liner on top MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Mascara Full Fan Effect the best mascara of all time 👏🏽 always add definition to the eyes especially important during meetings NYX - Slide On Lip Pencil use the shade red tape to softly outline my lips and then added the LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask to add back hydration Super simple and the eyes pop without being too much and I love it! 🥰 also this is a perfect day time look for the fall with the soft blown out brown smokey eye! Tip: if you are lighter, choose a chocolate shade slightly deeper from your complexion for all over the lid and the same goes for any deeper skin tones than myself, choose a slightly deeper brown to add that smoke to the lid🍂 #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
Foundations for combination skin !!!
Clinique ID dramatically different base: this is more of a bb cream and would be amazing for summer time. It goes on as a lotion but the more it is rubbed in it changes color to your skin tone. L’ORÉAL infallible foundation: this foundation is full cover and makes my skin look flawless (I have combination skin) it does get oily around my nose so I always make sure I set my nose with powder for 5 minutes, AOA studio foundation: I honestly love this foundation and it was only $1!!!! But some people have tried it that have not enjoyed it so I can say this product is a hit or miss for some people but I think it makes my skin look amazing. Overall , I did my research on these foundations and say that the ingredients in these foundations are good for your skin and are less likely to break you out because it does not have harmful ingredients.

NYX HYDRATOUCH PRIMER (my favorite)
This drugstore primer is amazing!! I think it costs around $14.00. It’s super watery as you blend it into your skin, and it leaves your face feeling sooo hydrated. This is my second bottle🤩 - I haven’t really noticed much of a scent. If anything it has a clean scent. It helped my concealer not separate when my dehydrated skin had some flaky patches. I have extremely oily skin, so my makeup doesn’t last very long anyways, and so I can’t test it very well on that. But I can say it did helped my makeup look smoother and less patchy. This product is definitely my favorite primer as of now. Also I have a couple other NYX products that I love so this brand is awesome! Haha.

Smashbox Primer Water So Chill Coconut 🥥
This smashbox - Photo Finish Primer Water was an old collab with Nicol Concilio and I’m not even sure why I bought it. I have oily skin but I still wanted to try it. It’s just glorified scented water. Before make up it didn’t do anything. If you have dry skin this may hydrate some but like you can get the same effect using something cheaper. It’s not going to make your make up last any longer. As a setting spray it melts powders into the skin but won’t make it last any longer. It’s just not worth the price. I can’t recommend it because it doesn’t do anything special. This one smelled nice but even then it wasn’t worth the price. The spray was a nice, fine, and even mist.

Another primer post! 💗 I’ve been decluttering my primers lately so I have been focusing on them a lot. For this post I want to focus on the NYX Photo Loving Primer! My skin type is dry and this works really well on my skin! It is a very light primer which I personally like. If you are someone who enjoys to slather one a ton of moisturizing primer, I probably would not suggest this primer. I purchased this primer along with the same photo loving primer in purple. The purple is to help cancel out redness. I really love this primer. It is also really affordable! It is available at Ulta, target, and even some local drug stores.

Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer
NARS - Soft Matte Complete Concealer PRODUCT This concealer has a soft, matte finish (as indicated by the name), so I believe it is best for people with normal to oily skin (their Radiant Creamy Concealer is better for those with dry skin types). The texture is typical of a cream product that dries down, medium thickness but sheers out and thins as it warms up on the skin REVIEW I really like the coverage of this concealer and though it claims to be self-setting, I always set concealer or base products with a bit of translucent powder. When you have oily skin, most everything will crease, and this one is no exception, but you can very easily tap out the crease and set it again. I find the colors in the range to be really good, NARS has about 16 shades ranging from very fair to deep. This concealer comes in at $30 for 0.21 oz, which is typical of the brand, and on the higher end. You only need to use a little bit though, which is easy to do because of the jar packaging. It also contains peptides, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants, which are nice additions to a makeup product. I would recommend this to others, and I give this 4/5 stars.

My secret to achieving a flawless base
Achieving a flawless and perfect base is the most important process in making-up. I have oily t-zone while the rest of my face is very dry and sensitive. Sometimes there is patchiness around my t-zone, crack and dry patches appear on the rest of the skin. Under this circumstance, I have a secret way to achieve a perfect base that can last all night long. Keeping good skin condition is the best way to create a perfect base. So, good skin preparation is the key to great makeup. Usually, I use the PETER THOMAS ROTH’s Hungarian Thermal Water Mineral-Rich Moisturizer to get my skin prepped and primed. This is the most hydrated and moisturized moisturizer I have ever used. my face becomes so smooth and gentle. When applying foundation on my face, I can feel my face like silk and there is no crack at all. The foundation can better adhere to the face and can last longer. When applying foundation, I usually avoid putting a thick layer of the foundation. It is difficult to blend thick foundation and then there will have cracks on the skin. In order to smoothly blend the foundation, I wet the beauty blender. The damp surface brings more streak-free blending. Because of the dry skin, I also choose a hydrating foundation. I recommend Laura Mercier’s foundation. The brand is famous for its ability to create a ‘flawless face’. The lightweight long-lasting liquid foundation with a matter finish is oil-free. It is creamy and wears beautifully throughout the day. Sometimes I use Laura Mercier’s concealer to cover my imperfections. I apply a layer of a litter concealer over the skin as needed and blend.The last process is to fix all the work firmly on my face. I apply Translucent loose Setting Powder all over my face. It can control the oil around my t-zone and allow longer-lasting of my makeup.

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.Feb. 17
