LET’S TALK BRONZER: Give me glow all year round!
Want to achieve a bronzy glow all year long? Keep reading! Bronzer is a great product that gives you that vacay glow! It comes in many forms but all give you that beautiful bronze. However, if you’ve never used this product before, there is a potential to go overboard and you’ll end up like a new cast member of the Jersey Shore show. (No shade at all! LOVE THE JERSEY SHORE! But the overuse of bronzer makes them all look like Oompa Loompas.) I’m going to give you the 411 on the types , how to apply them and which ones I think are the best. Make sure you cheer and follow me for more tips and tricks! Types:
Powder: most typical and most beginner friendly. However be aware of the undertones! If you don’t pick the right one that matches your undertones, it will be an orangey mess. Use a big dome like bronzer brush like the MORPHE - E59 Tapered Bronzer Brushfor a nice diffused look. Of course, everyone knows the “3” bronzer application where you basically blend the bronzer on your face in a formation like the shape of the no 3.
Cream/Stick: very natural looking and little bit intermediate. Best applied and blended out using a beauty blender. Pick up the product from the balm or stick using the blender and then applying it directly to the face with the blender. I wouldn’t necessarily apply this following the no 3 shape. I would focus this product on the perimeters of my face and blend using a damp beauty blender.
Liquid: I have never used this form of bronzer before. It’s definitely something that I never though existed until I did my bronzer research. I would assume you would apply this like a cream bronzer. But lmk in the comments if you’ve ever used a liquid bronzer before. I’ll add your insights to my post and tag you in it. 😄Best of the best:
Powder: I think I’ve done a post on both of these but I love the PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzerand the benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzer. Both give wonderful diffused bronze glows and won’t give you a orangey look.
Cream/Stick: The most recognizable cream bronzer would have to be the CHANEL - SOLEIL TAN DE Bronzing Makeup Base. Everyone who has it raves about it. But a $50.00 price tag is not for everyone. So thankfully #Sol body - Bronzing balm[products]#has been rumored to be a great more affordable dupe for the Chanel counterpart. It’s about $15.00 but Colourpop is having a sale right now so you can get it for 30% off.
Liquid: Like I said before, I’ve never used this type of bronzer. But after doing some research bareMinerals - barePro Glow Liquid Bronzercame up when I was trolling Ulta. It has 4/5 ⭐️ on Ulta. It seems promising but I couldn’t tell you from experience of this is bomb or not. Hopefully someone in the comments will speak on liquid bronzers.Hope this was helpful! I love talking about makeup products and simplifying them as it can be overwhelming. Until tomorrow, Xoxo 💋 #CherieCreator

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

Mini ulta haul with product tryouts!
I had a few Ulta gift cards burning a hole in my pocket so I decided to get a few new items to try out. The first item I’ve been dying to try is URBAN DECAY - All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray I wanted to see if it’s worth the hype/price tag. I like this product, but I’d like to use it a few more times. I’m going to do another post next month comparing several different setting sprays to see how the compare. The next item I used is the MILANI - Cheek Kiss Blush in shade cheeky coral. I like the shade and it wears nicely. But I did have to layer it to get the color payoff I was looking for. I also got another cult favorite, PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzer I absolutely love this product. I love the texture, the smell, the finish. It’s all great, absolutely worth the price. And the last is another eye shadow pallet from profusion! #Profusion Cosmetics - Starlet palette[products]#[FourStars] I love this palette, although the shimmer shades need a wet brush to be impactful. What other make up productions would you like to try out?
Christmas Day Makeup!
CLINIQUE - Even Better Glow Light Reflecting Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Foundation tarte - Shape Tape Concealer 16N Too Faced - Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer PAT McGRATH LABS - Celestial Divinity Luxe Quad Some scratchiness and it was hard to blend plus fall out. But the color payoff is terrific and the duochrome is gorgeous in person. PAT McGRATH LABS - Dark Star Volumizing Mascara OG HG. PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzer in Light. Blends well and goes on smoothly! DIOR - BACKSTAGE Glow Face Palette Hard to pick up with my brush. Doesn’t layer well over bronzer. Ended up looking muddy. ILIA - Balmy Gloss Tinted Lip Oil in Saint. I love this formula. The right amount of shine, wears well and is buildable without being gloopy. Earrings via IndigenousIntentions @ Etsy.

Bronzer VS Blush | 🦋ABG makeup look🦋
To get things started, we have to keep the differences between bronzer and blush in mind: "Bronzer is basically blush, but blush is not bronzer." Blush should be used to add warmth to the cheeks, while bronzer is used specifically to make you look tan. In a nutshell, blush is used to add a flush of color to the cheeks, while bronzer is intended to make the skin look sun-kissed or tan.✨ As a result, blush tends to come in variations of pink (sometimes with peach or plum undertones), where bronzer is typically brown or gold in color. 🦋 How they applied Blush is made to be applied directly to the apples of the cheeks and cheekbones. Bronzer can be applied both to the cheekbones and brow, jawline, and other contours of the face and décolletage. 🦋 Mood and Occasion If you’re going for a natural look, bronzer can add a hint of color and definition. Bronzer is perfect for casual weekend events, as well as more made-up evening looks, particularly those that include contouring. Blush can add a touch of softer, flushed color and is also great for daywear, but use it sparingly—blushes are often very pigmented and can go on heavy if you're not careful. Whichever you choose, keep in mind that less is more, and be sure to keep the color (whether pink or bronze) within range of your natural skin tone. Now that we’ve gone over the difference between bronzer and blush, hopefully you won’t be staring at your makeup bag in confusion any longer about which to wear. So for today’s ABG makeup look, I applied bronzer to make my chin look more strong and the face look slimmer. 🦋 Product details: PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzer Best-selling bronzers in the mass market! I’ve bought this product with $14.95, it comes in an adorable tropical-looking compact complete with palm trees and bright colors on it. As soon as you open the top, you can catch a whiff of the buttery goodness going on in there. It smells like Butter Cookies or close to that. The product pan is beautiful and is shaped like sea waves. 🦋 Color: Oohhh!!! The color!!! This bronzer has the perfect bronze-y gold shade with peach undertones for adding the correct amount of warmth and glow to the face. This is certainly not a contouring powder, but the color is best suited for adding some glow and warmth to the skin on a daily basis. 🦋 Texture: It feels very silky and buttery to the touch, like almost creamy! It also contains soft-focus pigments and ultra-refined pearl that gives a glow that looks so beautiful. This bronzer by no means contains chunky shimmer or glitter, has the correct amount of finely-milled shiny powder with a bronze-y glow. 🦋 Longevity: The bronzer does have considerable longevity and does stay on the face for about 6-7 hours which is incredible! I do set my face with a setting spray or a face mist and it does increase the longevity of this product. Anyway, ABG makeup look check!!

Instant weight loss by collarbone contouring 🤔
You know how we girls sometimes can go out of our way to make us look better. And one extra step I would bother to take when doing makeup in summer is to contouring my collarbones to make them pop and more emphasized, especially when I am wearing crop tops. I mean, when these extra lines and blending can make us look in better shape, there is no loss in learning these tricks, right? I’ve prepared a breakdown of this technique and it’s really easy, now let’s see. · Products you need: ◇ a bronzer product that is pretty deeper than your skin tone ◇ a highlighter ◇ eyeshadows glitters (optional) · Products I used: ◇ Single eyeshadow in the shade “omega” from MAC ◇ Liquid highlighter in the shade “champagne pop” from Becca ◇ Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in the shade “diamond dust” from Stila · Steps and tips: ◇ Use a lotion to moisturize the areas you are going to contour. It’s like you would apply a primer to make your makeup lasts longer and looks better. ◇ Push your shoulders and brush the lines above and underneath your collarbones with the bronzer product of your choice. It’s okay if there are harsh lines and make sure you repeat several times so it will actually make a difference. ◇ Use a beauty blender to blend the bronzer and make it look natural. ◇ Apply the liquid highlighter right on the collarbones. ◇ Dab some glitters from any of your eyeshadows to add some subtle shines. They will look especially great under the sunlight. I personally find the glitter eyeshadow from stila a perfect choice at this step. ◇ You can use a setting spray to set if you worry it would smudge. So here are the steps to create a finely drawn glowy collarbones contouring. Hope it would help you and let me know the results in the comments if you try this out!

Honey Tones With Urban Decay
Urban Decay Stay Naked Weightless Foundation Stay Naked Weightless Liquid Foundation is fantastic for my skin. It’s light to medium coverage matt finish foundation with a reflective pigment. My shade is 61NN, making it easy to look natural, moisturizing for all skin types and vegan. No nasties in this foundation, no parabens, and no palm oil - the foundation has a silk liquid feel, glides on smoothly, and stays in place throughout the day. Fifty shades to choose from, you can guarantee a match to your skin color. Urban Decay Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette I love this palette because of the shade range. It’s the best palette Urban Decay has ever created. The texture is good, heavily pigmented creamier, and easy to apply - such a long-lasting formula with no fallout. Just like it says, twelve golden honey shades, three different textures just like the spotlight palette, creamy, silky mattes, smooth shimmers, and sparkly metallic eye shadows. To create this look, I used Keeper all over the lid and under the lashes and then a mixture of Hive and Drip on the outer edge and in the socket of my eye, and I finished with Sting in the teardrop of my eye. For an interview or casual day look, I love the Naked Honey Palette. To go a bit more hardcore, I might add some pink shades from my other palette from Urban Decay Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette.

My Go-To Pallet gives you a Kim K-worthy contour
Who doesn't enjoy convenience? We're human. We love convenience in all shapes and sizes. Why do you think delivery apps are skyrocketing in popularity? While I love a good meal delivered to my front door, I can also appreciate an all-in-one makeup pallet. My Go-To All-In-One Face Pallet: The Kevyn Aucoin Art of Sculpting + Defining pallet is my #1 choice for a natural everyday pallet that gets the job done fast. I find myself reaching for this pallet when I know I don't have much time to spend on my day's makeup. The pallet retails for $59. Is It Worth It? For me, the creme de la creme of face pallets is the 'The Contour Book Volume II' by Keyin Aucoin. As a longtime fan of his Sculpting Powder, which gives you a Kim K-worthy contour, this pallet comes with my beloved chiseling power and a cream version, highlighters, and four eyeshadows. Altogether, you get a total of eight pans. Naturally, the face products are larger than the eyeshadows. I love almost everything in this pallet. I'm personally not the biggest eyeshadow person, so I use the shadows as an inner corner highlight instead! Plus, the darker eyeshadow shade can double as a brow powder for me. It comes with a huge mirror, too, making great for travel or minor touch-ups. There's also a handy guide that teaches you how to sculpt your cheekbones out and use the eyeshadows to naturally shape and define the eyes. Tip: I love layering the Candlelight Cream and Candlelight Powder. The subtle shimmer in the powder really makes the cream highlight pop. Plus, it makes it last longer! Final Thoughts: I love this pallet, and I ultimately think it's worth it. If not for anything else, I continue to buy this pallet for the Sculpting Powder alone. It's seriously THE BEST contour powder I've ever used.

Bronzer vs Contour: All You Need to Know
Every makeup pro needs to know the difference between bronzer and contour, especially in a world where a lot of makeup users seem to confuse the two terms. This bronzer vs contour 101 will explain how to use each product, and demonstrate the different effects each product gives. I have an oval face shape, so the exact techniques I use might need to be customised to suit your face The Difference Between Bronzer and Contour Bronzers are warm-toned cream and powder products that are used on the perimeters of the face and along the cheekbones to create softly defined, warm makeup looks. Contours, on the other hand, are cool-toned cream and powder products that are used in focused areas around the face to create a strongly defined, sculpted makeup look. The differences extend into how and where you apply each product on the face. Bronzers are best applied to the chin, the temples, the forehead, and along the cheeks. My best technique is to use a makeup brush to create a guideline from the top of your ear to the apple of your cheek. You can apply the bronzer softly along this line to lift the cheeks and add colour to the face, making you look bright and healthy. For your visual guide, see the picture of me holding the makeup brush! You can take this guideline and use it slightly differently to create a contoured look as well. Instead of following this line direcly, like you do with bronzer, you will instead apply contour underneath this line, and not take it onto the apples of the cheeks. Using contour from the middle of the ear to just behind the apples of the cheeks will simulate a natural shadow, and create a more hollowed out appearance of the cheek. This is great for highlighting your natural facial features and emphasising where the light hits your face, and creates defining shadows. You can see that my cheeks appear more defined, and the contour product creates a shadow effect, a different effect compared to the colourful glow of the bronzer. You can emphasise your contour by applying a shimmery highlighter to the high points of your face. Products I Used for Bronzer vs Contour For this demonstration, I used my current favourite drugstore palette, the Revlon Sculpt + Highlight Contour Kit, in Light/Medium. At around AUD$13, this palette is super affordable and accessible at most drugstores, and online. It has a matte, banana yellow shade for highlighting the undereyes; a light, metallic champagne shade for highlighting the high points of the face; a warm-toned matte brown shade for bronzing; and a cool-toned matte brown shade for contouring. I recently bought this product, and it is super for fair to light skin tones, and is user-friendly for beginners. I find it best to use with a dense face brush. The powder of the palette is soft and fairly creamy for a drugstore product. I recommend this product for beginners, travelling people (great compact size), and all-round makeup lovers.

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
