Nyx Lip Liner in Cabaret
I don’t wear red lip products often but when I do it’s this product. It’s the perfect shade of red for my skin tone and glides on smoothly. I’ve tried other lip liners that accentuate the lines on my lips and make it look like I’ve gone without drinking any fluids for days 😬 Nyx on the other hand has effective and affordable lip liners and I love them for it! I definitely recommend nyx if you’re looking for the perfect lip liner! I’ve reviewed the Inglot eyeliner and Buxom mascara in previous posts. I love both of these products and wear them frequently. They’re my go-tos! NYX - Slim Lip Pencil

NEW PRODUCTS IM TESTING!!
Hello all, I haven’t posted in a while and just wanted to update everyone. I’ve been testing a bunch of new products (so exciting!) and I’m just about ready to give my opinion on them so stay tuned for a new post!!
Halloween Spiderweb Makeup 🕸 🕷
Ok this is Cherie so were all in agreement that Halloween makeup is the best part of Halloween correct? I find it so fun to play around with all types of makeup ideas every year. This is a great time to let your creativity shine through and have fun fulfilling your yearly fantasy of being a ladybug, scarecrow, hippie, Disney character, or just be abstract. This year I've decided to try the trendy spiderweb eyeliner look. I feel this look is a really cute Halloween twist to eyeliner and as difficult as it may look can be easily created. I also love that this trend can be completely your own, I’ve seen some people do spider web butterflies, flare their web out past their brow and even do a full lower lash web. To put my own twist on this I’ve decided to do a neon green under neath to make the spider web pop even more! To start this look you will need to first get an idea of how much web you want on your liner. I decided to go simple and create a smaller web branching off of the wing and going into the corner. After you have a stong idea of the look your trying to achieve you will take out a soft eyeliner pencil to start drafting your look. I am only going to draft out the web however if your unsure about your wing you can sketch that out as well. Once you have your draft take your sharpest liner and begin to create the web. I am choosing to do this with my Danessa Myricks liner in shade Electric Sun DANESSA MYRICKS BEAUTY - Waterproof Cushion Liner . After I will take my inglot gel liner and go over it. INGLOT - AMC Eyeliner Gel I recommend using a gel liner with a super fine detailed brush to help mitigate any errors. If you dont like working with gels then find a liquid liner that has a super thin applicator that can allow you to get fine details. I am using my Morphe MORPHE - M160-1/16 Angled Eyeliner Brush I hope you all try this super fun look this Halloween season! If you do please tag me on Instagram so I can see how your personal touch Halloween 👻

Buxom waterproof lash mascara 👁
I boughtBUXOM - Lash Waterproof Volumizing Mascara for the first time a year ago and it has been my favourite lash mascara to the day. It is waterproof; it separates and defines every single lash, and is intensely volumizing. And this Buxom mascara does all that and more! This makes my lashes full and longer, and I love them! What I also love about Buxom is that it doesn’t clump at all and we love a mascara that doesn’t clump over our eyelashes together.

THE ACTUAL BEST
This is the GENUINE best mascara I’ve ever tried! The 2nd photo is a photo with no mascara and the 3rd photo is with the mascara on. The mascara doesn’t make your lashes look clumpy and it looks good with only 3-4 swipes! benefit - Free Roller Lash Mascara Deluxe you need to buy this!

Mascara as Brow Gel - does it work?
No two brows are the same, not even for our own brows, and that means that the process to achieving the “perfect” eyebrows is different for everyone. 😏 Brows that are well-groomed and natural looking are highly coveted. A trick I do when I am short on make-up products is to multi-use what I have. In this case, I sometimes apply mascara on your eyebrows. While there are specific brow mascaras in the market, I find that using lash mascaras also do the trick. Using a lash mascara in place of a brow gel can help to create a fuller more dramatic effect. To do that, apply a mascara or gel and then use a spoolie to brush through the brows for the fluffy, brushed-up look that has maximum definition. Since my hair is black, I lean towards using mascara shades that are hazel brown or dark brown. But since I only have a black mascara now, I use it very very lightly on my brows and sweep the color evenly across my brows for a more natural look. I am using Maybelline Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Washable Mascara in Very Black for my eye lashes now. Although the pigment may be too dark for the brows, I like the longer length of the mascara wand and thinner brushes of the lengthening mascara. The formula also helps conditions and smooths lashes with Pro-Vitamin B-5 – win-win! MAYBELLINE - Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Mascara It is also easy to clean and remove at the end of the day as well. I apply my usual eye make-up remover on a cotton pad, press it against my brows for about 3 seconds and gently swipe the pad acrosss the product to remove it completely.

Girlactik eyeliner 💫
girlactik - Precise Marker Liner I’m normally pretty bad at applying eyeliner but I’ve been practicing since there’s not much else to do. I got this eyeliner in an Ipsy bag as a gift 🎁 Here are some things I liked 💖 Sharp pen point highly pigmented doesn’t fade and keeps its shape without smudging easy to apply and get a good point on it Here are some things I didn’t like 💔 when I had to fix a mistake I feel like it was so hard to remove! Had to rub hard on it and it moved the color around so there was black smudging! ( only smudges if you rub really hard with makeup remover! Obviously this is going to happen!) Apart from that I thought it was a really good liner and easy to use. My first time trying this brand and I’ve had the liner for quite some time now ( 2 months) and it hasn’t dried out yet. I would repurchase this & also try some other stuff from their brand ☺️

TikTok hack: better than falsies? 🤔
I kept seeing this tip popping up on my recommended when I was browsing TikTok for makeup hacks! Originally posted by TikTok user @mirellabelle, I used her audio for this video ☺️ As you can see is pretty easy to follow, and I have to say I liked the results! After applying mascara how I would normally do on one eye, I tried this on the other eye and both looked good but the side where I used this hack definitely looked a lot more fuller! I think it takes just slightly a bit more effort but the result was pretty good, I have very stubborn lashes that refuse to stay curled and this really helped 🙌🏼 10/10 would recommend I used the wet n wild - Mega Length Waterproof Mascara

Liquid or pencil eyeliner?
HANK & HENRY - Slick WithIt Liquid Eye Liner Matte/satin finish, transfer resistant and long wear. I like it because it really lasts all day, doesn’t transfer, dries very quickly and is easy to apply. FENTY BEAUTY - Flypencil Longwear Pencil Eyeliner Ultra smooth and creamy formula, longwear water-resistant, matte. Easy to apply, it has very good pigmentation and lasts all day. As I mentioned before, I only wear makeup for events or weddings, most of the time I have used pencil eyeliners, but this one from Hank & Henry its so good, it’s very easy to apply, dries fast and lasts all day. I love the one from Fenty beauty because I like matte blacks with zero shine and it has a good duration. Liquids are generally chosen when you need more precision to create a look, pencil ones are used more to create smokey eyes because it can be blended and also can be used in the waterline.

Amazing eyeliner by Tarte !!!!
tarte - Tartist Double Take Eyeliner Having tried quite a bit of eyeliners in the past, this eyeliner by Tarte is easy to handle, and glides easily, depositing a deep dark black color without having to retrace it. Since it also has a liquid side and a pencil side, the pencil allows to fill in smaller gaps that one could’ve missed while doing their eyeliner routine. Overall, I would give this product a solid 4 stars and not five simply because the liquid felt brush area is a little too thick for my liking. But even then, having worn this eyeliner for a full day’s party, or other special occasions, even if you sweat or if you accidentally rub your eye a bit, it does not run at all and stays practically intact. Would recommend this product for sure, it is one of my favorite eyeliners.

3a - 4a Curly Hair Tips From Team Cherie Calling all curly girls! Team cherie shares some of their favorite ways to take care of their natural curls.Dec. 23, 2020
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
