Product Mentioned
Sooooo many choices!!!😉❤️
All about those BROWS! Soooo many options and everyone has their personal favorite. Today I am going to share with you my loves and my less loved brow products! First up! ✨REVOLUTION - Brow Pomade This one I have had for a looooong time. It used to be my go to brow product and here is why. -Creamy application, blends well, definition is super BOLD, and once set it stays put quite well. My only issue with this product is that it is so bold, and it can really cause your brows to get away from you and be super dark. Next! ✨WANDER BEAUTY - Frame Your Face Precise Brow Gel I absolutely LOVE Wander beauty I have yet to try a product of theirs I did not love. This brow gel, although it is clear, gives a natural illusion of filling your brows. It contains good nourishing ingredients. It made my brows so soft and promotes growth!! ✨item - Brow Chow This one is just ok for me. The tapered pencil is creamy but too thick and the small paddle brush is good for blending but not diffusing product. Awesome staying power though. Next! ✨#COMPLEX CULTURE - Full Out Brow gel[products]#[ThreeStars] Now I love me some complexculture beauty products buuuut I’m not sure how I feel about this brow gel. For me its too much and the thick mascara like spoolie grabs a lot of product. Which clumps up and doesn’t disperse well before it sets. Maybe it’s just me and I’m doing it wrong.....jury still out on this one folks! 😂 LAST!!! ✨ billion dollar brows - Brow Powder billion dollar brows - The Microblade Effect: Brow Pen These get to go together because I think they are the perfect pair! Billion Dollar Brows is by far my favorite! I have been using the powder for about a year now and probably won’t deviate and the Microblade pen perfectly adds delicate little hairs where needed. So much control with these products and that’s why they are my #1. What are your favs?? Have you tried any of these? What are your thoughts??? #CherieCreator❤️

Brand Spotlight: BLISS
Bliss is one of my favorite affordable drugstore clean and cruelty free brand. They are easily accessible, you find them at: Ulta, CVS, Target and Bliss.com, etc. I can’t help but love everything that I’ve tried from them. Here are current favorites and must haves: Left to right: bliss - Clear Genius Clarifying Toner + Serum A mixture between toner and serum this is an awesome toner that is alcohol free, vegan, and packed with skin calming and pore refining ingredients : BHA, niacinamide, zinc and cica. bliss - Bright Idea Vitamin C + Tri-Peptide Collagen Protecting & Brightening Moisturizer My day/ night cream depending on my mood and what serums I’m using. Sinks in the skin well and has great texture. bliss - Drench & Quench Moisturizer This is comparable to TATCHA - The Water Cream very lightweight but pack a lot of moisture. It leaves my skin feeling a bit tacky which I love as a base before my primer and make up. bliss - Rose Gold Rescue Moisturizer All times favorite basic moisturizer for day and night. I usually use this when either my skin has a break out and I have to go back to basics or when I’m using retinol or some other harsh serums. bliss - Renew & Smooth Night Serum If you are new to glycolic acids or AHAs this is a great beginner’s choice. For me I thought this quite a gentle formula... I didn’t feel any discomfort or irritation. bliss - Fabulips Lip Scrub This is my first lip scrub... so I don’t know if it’s good or not. It’s not bad. It’s moisturizing, exfoliating and didn’t taste bad. 😋 Clean product: 🌱No Parabens 🌱No Alcohol 🌱No Sulfates 🌱No Nuts 🌱No Oils 🌱No Silicones 🐰Cruelty Free 🐰 Vegan Have you tried any of their product? Tell me your favorites below. Thank you. Be Kind, Stay Beautiful

Apostrophe: Please Save My Skin ❤️
Hi Cherie family & Apostrophe crew! This year I have definitely gone on a journey with my skin. As you see in the photo, (the left is before my journey even began & the right is me today) I had very textured, uneven skin. It was oily, prone to breakouts whenever it felt like it (which to me felt like always), & I had a bit of hyperpigmentation. Today, I have a consistent routine, that I am content with. My skin is significantly clearer & smoother. But there is always room for improvement. I feel like my skin still gets so bright red in certain areas like my cheeks & nose & no matter what I do, it still feels super dry. One of my BIGGEST concerns to this day is my chin. I have always had consistent breakouts on my chin, even to this day. But it is also superrr textured, no matter what I do the texture won’t go away! Some products I have used that I’ve had success with are: I'm from - Rice Toner & AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay They both have worked very well for me. The toner brightens my face & when I use the clay mask, I feel the impurities being pulled from my skin. & after I wash it off, my face is always smoother. A product I tried & didn’t have any success with is: bliss - Drench & Quench Moisturizer It was definitely a no go for me. This product irritated my skin from the beginning & didn’t moisturize it at all. I feel like Apostrophe partnering with me on my journey would help me out SO much. They could help me figure out what I’m doing wrong & what I should be doing with my problem areas. Why my skin seems to always be dry & itchy at times & how I can work to fix that! They could also help me figure out how to handle my biggest insecurity (my chin!!!) & how to get rid of all the texture & make the skin around it smooth! That would mean so much to me & I would be so beyond thankful for the opportunity! Thank you so much for reading & I hope to speak with you guys soon!! 💖💋☺️

Current Setting Powders 💀
Hi everyone! To start, I just turned 30 and have combo skin that gets a tad oily in the center and bone dry on the outer edges of my face. I used Too Faced’s Peach Perfect Powder for 3 years after a sweaty work trip to Mississippi one summer 🥵 it was my HG! Recently, I’ve been flipping between that and the ELF HD Powder for a couple of months, and I’ve noticed that it does an excellent job of keeping me shine-free much longer than expected. It also rocks that it’s only $6 😱 Which setting powder do you lovely people recommend that isn’t too drying, but also doesn’t cost a ton of monies? ❤️ thanks Cherie fam! Remember to hydrate and check your WiFi 😘

Everyday Minimal Makeup!
My everyday, minimal makeup! For days when I don't really want to look like I'm wearing product, but still want to cover up general discoloration and just look a little more put together. On most days I just put some concealer on the places where I need it, so you can still very much see my "real" skin poking through. I do almost always color correct under my eyes though! Products: bliss - Drench & Quench Moisturizer NYX - Color Correcting Concealer Palette e.l.f. - Luminous Putty Primer e.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer FLOWER - Miracle Glow Satin Finishing Powder ULTA BEAUTY - Lip + Cheek Color Stick CATRICE COSMETICS - The Modern Matt Eyeshadow Palette e.l.f. - Wow Brow Gel benefit - Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara COVERGIRL - Outlast All-Day Lip Color with Topcoat CATRICE COSMETICS - Prime & Fine Dewy Glow Finishing Spray

Favorite Primers!
Hello beautiful people! I always think of myself more of a makeup junkie than a skin care junkie. This being said, i’m going to share some of my favorite primers with you guys! NYX - Bare With Me Cannabis Primer the first time i applied this primer, i was a little iffy about how it basically made me look like the tin man. I guess that’s where the “radiant” comes in lol. i then proceeded to do the rest of my makeup and it just gave me the most beautiful “glow from within” look. it did not break down my foundation, my powders, etc. it’s perfect for the “no makeup” makeup look. it smells so good as well, so no doubt that it’s fragranced, HOWEVER, Nyx claims that it’s sensitive-skin friendly. benefit - The POREfessional: Hydrate Primer when this came out i was beyond excited to try it! i was a fan of the og Porefessional primer, but i found that it made me look a bit cakey. this primer’s consistency is a lot more smooth, and it leaves my skin looking juicy while still filling up them big ass pores that i have. I usually just put this where my pores are more visible, so the big area under my eyes, by the sides of my nose, and the space between my brows. for the rest of my face, i use the Nyx primer i mentioned above. whenever i do this combination, i always have a good makeup day! Milk MAKEUP - Hydro Grip Primer i would consider this to be more of my “hardcore” primer. when i know that i would be wearing makeup for hours or I’m having a night out with friends, i bring out this bad boy right here. i love how it just makes everything stay but at the same time it makes your skin look juicy! (can yall tell I’m just obsessed with making my skin look hydrated lol). The only problem i had with this one is sometimes it can make your foundation look patchy, especially when you missed that ~window~ mark where it’s dry and wet at the same time. easily fixable, tbh, so I’m not really mad at it! e.l.f. - Luminous Putty Primer ELF. what a brand. they’re constantly giving us underrated products over and over at SUCH a low price tag. this primer is more of a “I’m late and I’m hurrying for something I just need to look poreless and juicy” vibe for me. it’s like the Nyx and Poreless primer fused together. the only problem with this primer is that it does tend to pill up on my skin (i HATE when that happens), so when i know that I’m just having a light makeup day, this is what I’m grabbing. also, the “luminous” part for them seem to mean “glitter” as well. I honestly don’t mind it, but if you hate actual specks of glitter on your face, you might want to steer away from this one. and that’s it! i like the more ~radiant~ primers because i find that it makes me look more natural/dewy throughout the day, rather than a cakey mess. If you guys want to know more about my makeup faves, let me know! Hope this helps!

🌟These highlighters are a MUST 🌟
e.l.f. - Baked Highlighter I have this E.l.f highlighter in the color “moonlight pearls” Sometimes drugstore highlighters can be chalky and chunky but this one is nothing like that. I would definitely consider this to be my day to day highlighter. It’s only $4 and the pan size is pretty decent. L.A. Girl - Strobe Lite Strobing Powder I have the Strobe lite Strobing powder in “50 watt” this is another one of my everyday highlighters but I like it more when I use it with a wet brush and it come out great in pics. LAURA GELLER - Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator I have it in “Sunbeam” and let me tell you the name says it all. I live to use this highlighter when I’m want to look bronzy and sun kissed. This looks beautiful on medium to deep skin tones. the Balm cosmetics - Mary Lou Manizer Luminizer Highlighter Can you tell it’s my all time fav ? I love to use this highlighter alone when I want a blinding highlight and I also use this as my highlight topper - after applying what ever highlighter in using I like to go over it with the Mary Lou Manizer

BROWN DOUBLE-WINGED EYLINER TUTORIAL✨
What’s better than 1 wing than 2?! I have never done this double winged eye look before and now I see why people love it. It accentuates my eye shape nicely by elongating the eye. Products used: Eyeliner/shadow: KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Shade + Light Glimmer Eye Contour Palette Mascara: L'ORÉAL - Telescopic Original Washable Mascara Lash curler:TWEEZERMAN - Classic Lash Curler Highlight: the Balm cosmetics - Mary Lou Manizer Luminizer Highlighter To do: - First, I used a brown shadow and a small brow brush and flicked out a wing. Then from the end of the wing point I flicked it back in above the crease. - I took a small fluffy brush and blended out the shadow. - Next, I curled my lashes and applied mascara. - Lastly, I added an inner corner highlight. This eye liner is a lot easier then it appears and I can’t wait to try the look with different colors. I will post the tutorial tomorrow ☺️

I Wanted To Love It
This mascara has been making the rounds on TikTok so that last time I was in Ulta I picked it up. As far as mascara goes I do have really high expectations and Lancôme is honestly a benchmark for me. If a mascara isn’t comparable to LANCÔME - Monsieur Big Mascaraor LANCÔME - Hypnôse Volume-à-porter MascaraI just can’t make time for it. I want volume and I want length from my mascara and I don’t want it to be fussy. I want it quick and easy to apply and I want dramatic lashes in return. That being said I felt this mascara was very “meh”. It was okay, but I don’t see why it’s getting so much hype other than it being $5. It felt like just another drugstore mascara. It was also very wet as in you can very easily get mascara everywhere. Also I found I had to go over and over my lashes to get them separated and coated satisfactorily for me. I was expecting more volume from this product even if it did lengthen okay. I don’t have much flaking at all with this mascara, I do have to say, even without a setting spray. Previously I had used the ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Lash Brag Volumizing Mascaraand it flaked something terrible; so that was a plus. The formula also didn’t irritate my eyes so that was another plus for this product. I thought this mascara was fine. For me it wasn’t much to write home about, but it did an okay job. I don’t hate it, I’m just not compelled to buy it again. I haven’t used this with a lash primer (maybe I’d get more volume using one) I may pick one up to try it, but it’s another step and I’m lazy. For $5, though, it’s a fantastic bargain and is definitely way more affordable than my permanent favorites for sure. It’s a great inexpensive option, but just don’t expect it to outdo some cult favorites like Lancôme.

Days 2 & 3 of Beauty ⭐️
To make up for being behind a day with my Macy’s 25 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar, I’m reviewing days 2 and 3 today! Yay! After a disappointing first day, the second and third have made up for it! Inside were Lancôme’s Monsieur Big Mascara and Lavido’s Age Away Hydrating Cream. First off, the mascara is FANTASTIC. It lengthens, curls and volumizes. I’ve wanted to try it for awhile, but the price tag kept me from it. This sample has opened my eyes though and I might just have to buy the full size! Swipe through for pics of it on me. Second, the hydrating cream is also really nice. I’ve actually had the full size in the past and I’ve found it to be very hydrating, very nice to wear and it also smells beautifully! The cream has ingredients like evening primrose, pumpkin seed and sea buckthorn to help hydrate, improve skin tone and reduce fine lines. I’m a fan! Have you gotten any makeup/skincare-related advent calendars? There are so many out there, I’d love to hear about some good ones! LANCÔME - Monsieur Big Mascara lavido - Age Away Hydrating Cream

10 Minute Natural Look 👀
☀️ I have sensitive combo skin that is acne-prone. My skin is fair and my main concern is acne and general redness. 1. Skincare I use a cleanser, Vitamin C serum, moisturizer and sunscreen every morning. I let it sink in for a few minutes before starting any sort of make-up. 2. Mascara I currently use They’re Real by Benefit and really love it for quick volume and length. I also love their BadGal Bang one and might switch back to that next but this one is great. 3. Concealer I use this under my eyes to cover any darkness, any red spots from breakouts and just generally for redness. I find that a little of this Kaja concealer goes a really long way and this one is affordable and clean. This is the lightest shade in the range called Sweet Rice and I blend it with a damp beauty blender. 4. Erborian CC Red Correct This light green color correcting cream with SPF 25 is my favorite for light coverage that overall provides an evenness to my skin without any heaviness of foundation in look or feel. I find this also blends best with a beauty blender and the greenness fades the redness perfectly. 5. Elf Shadow Pencil I got this for like $3 and I use it along my upper lash line to add a bit of pink sparkle for fun. I have this in Rose Gold but there are more options and they’re really quick to apply because no brush is needed. They’re also a smoother pencil in terms of softness. ☀️This is my go-to quick natural look I’ve been doing this year and I LOVE it because it’s quick and covers my main concerns. My most important step though beyond skincare is definitely mascara. It just makes such a difference with my eyes and generally how I look. I can skip the rest but I need my skincare and my lashes. benefit - They’re Real! Lengthening Mascara Kaja - Don't Settle Concealer erborian - CC Color Correcting & Redness Reducing Broad Spectrum SPF 25 e.l.f. - No Budge Shadow Stick #CheriePartner

Dewy, Springy Vibe
I’m baaaaack! After a long hiatus due to health reasons, I finally feel healthy enough to actually do my makeup! Hooray! I had some fun with the NATASHA DENONA - Eyeshadow Palette 5 in Peak which is such a great palette. I also cheated and used bareMinerals - Gen Nude Eyeshadow Palette in “Soul” in my crease. Both of these shadow palettes are fantastic and very easy to work with/blend. The color payoff is great as well, especially the Natasha Denona shadows. I’ll be posting another look soon with the bareMinerals palette so you can get more of an idea of how gorgeous this collection is, so stay tuned. I’m still loving Glossier. - Futuredew Oil Serum Hybrid because no matter how dull and dry my skin is looking, this serum can bring me back from dead-looking to hydrated and bright. I’m off to get vaccinated! Wish me luck 💕

BEST mascara for straight lashes 🤩💕
I have straight, thin, long Asian lashes that need volume + curl + length, so it’s pretty much impossible for me to find a mascara that I like. I use a Shu Uemura or Kevyn Aucoin lash curler to curl my lashes first - these two lash curlers have been the best performing for me, since they fit Asian eyelids pretty well! L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara - this mascara is supposed to be a dupe for TF Better Than Sex Mascara, and I actually like it better! I’ve used both the waterproof and the regular one, and it’s kept my straight lashes curled. I like drier formulas, and this is definitely one of those - no flaking and curl is held all day, BUT it does get a bit clumpy. if you’re into clumpy lashes (I am, honestly), you might like this one because it does build volume and length. benefit - Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara - this is probably my favorite high end mascara because it actually lengthens, volumizes, and retains my curl. I usually don’t believe that high end mascara is worth it, but I would repurchase this one if I was splurging on myself! benefit - They're Real! Mascara - this is a very ordinary mascara and performs really closely to the original L’Oreal Voluminous line, in my opinion. nothing to write home about - didn’t hold up my curl, no significant length or volume. Heroine Mascara - this mascara is INTENSE. it holds my curl super well and gives me some length and volume, but is IMPOSSIBLE to take off. it took about ~3 days for me to completely clean this mascara off with oil-based remover, so if you have really straight and thin lashes, this may be a great option, but do note it’s difficult to remove. Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara - I actually despise this mascara because it’s super wet, then gets super dry in the tube really quickly. this is one of the few mascaras that flaked on me, didn’t hold a curl, and just didn’t look good immediately after application. I got a free one and wouldn’t repurchase. L'ORÉAL - Telescopic Waterproof Mascara - my holy grail since middle school! I use the waterproof one and it holds my curl, lengthens, and volumizes (with extra coats) better than any other mascara has. every time I stray from this mascara, I find myself coming back because it’s just that good. I find it’s the right wet/dry ratio that I love. would totally recommend this for all lash types, whether you have straight, curled, thick, thin, or short lashes! overall, my top two picks would be the L’Oreal telescopic mascara and the L’Oreal lash paradise. I wouldn’t spend too much money on mascara and would instead invest in a great eyelash curler, since they can last you for years. drugstore products are always my favorite, so if you have any recs I’d love to hear them!

OLD FAVES: DRUGSTORE FOUNDATIONS ✨
This one will be a little shorter because it will just be ratings! My preferred method of application is with a beauty sponge, here's the list of tools & primers I use! - e.l.f. - Total Face Sponge - e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer - MILANI - Prime Protect SPF 30 Face Primer - ACURE - Seriously Soothing Blue Tansy Night Oil - MILANI - Make It Last Prime + Correct + Set Setting Spray (Check out my everyday makeup routine to see a full base tutorial!) Let's get into these ratings! MAYBELLINE - Fit Me! Matte & Poreless Foundation - this is one of my holy grail foundations! i like their shade range so i can account for both my summer and winter shades. i always end up going back to this one! i just WISH the glass packaging had a pump or we could just make the tube worldwide. MILANI - Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer - let me preface by saying: it's THICK. full coverage to the max, almost a mousse texture. i go for this when i know i'll be having a long night with my makeup. definitely not an everyday formula. wet n wild - Photofocus Liquid Matte Foundation - another one of my go-to's, this is the original finish which is more satin/natural at least on myself! i like the spatula applicator on this one it's way less messy. definitely a more watery, smooth formula. CATRICE COSMETICS - HD Liquid Coverage Foundation - abysmal shade range, was okay but didn't really make a difference. i used this as a mixer for a long time, it comes in a dropper like serum so I could use it to lighten other foundations. other than that it was nothing to write home about. PHYSICIANS FORMULA - The Healthy Foundation SPF 20 - the packaging on this one actually broke on me but just the top lid part, probably user error. it comes with a large doe foot applicator, it has an interesting smell i will say that. otherwise i like how they do their shade matching by undertones & they keep their chart available and easy to understand! i like the finish, it would dry down slightly cakey but after a few mins + setting spray it would melt down into the skin beautifully! Remember to always give your foundations a full test run! Of course unless you experience irritation or incorrect color match. Some foundations do have a learning curve, for example there are certain foundations that apply better with a brush I have no idea why but it just works that way sometimes. If there are issues, try to check what products you're using that may not be a good pair with your foundation! Every foundation has a different finish so it's important to be aware of that when you're going into your make up routine. Thanks for reading. ❤️ #cheriecreator #cheriepartner

2 in 1! My favourite Serum Foundation ❤️
With the arrival of autumn and winter days, skin moisture, and condition for the base makeup is getting especially more and more important. When we protect our skin, besides changing skincare products which are more moisture or applying facial masks, make the adjustment of advanced type on the choice of base makeup, can give whole base makeup icing on the cake. I believe that you're not strange with foundations with serum adding in, most of the serum foundations have more moisture ingredients in them and caring the skin with complete serum. Using serum foundation during the daytime can also save your use of daytime serum. What I recommend today are two of my favorites, The Essential Foundation by Physicians Formula's The Healthy FoundationPHYSICIANS FORMULA - The Healthy Foundation SPF 20, and Helena Rubinstein's The Prodigy Cellglow Foundation.HR HELENA RUBINSTEIN - Prodigy Cellglow The Luminous Tint Concentrate My skin is a combination of skin type and tends to be dry. I prefer liquid foundation which is liquid and moisturized all year round. The first time I came into catching with the serum foundation that nourishes skin is the Healthy Foundation by PF, which focuses on the effect of maintaining the skin. After applying makeup for a whole day, the skin can still be plump, just like the essence mask applied for a whole day. The color shade I use is in LW2. My skin tone is natural and tends to be pair, this shade matches my skin tone perfectly. In the winter season, it also won't be dry completely, the glossiness left on my face is nice, discharge makeup skin condition is pretty good also. Then there is this Helena Rubinstein's foundation, the first expensive serum foundation I bought, which also focuses on its skin-nourishing properties. Officially, this foundation is infused with up to 90% of its Helena's moisturizing essence, and with the concept that makeup is also a skincare process, I had high expectations as an expensive foundation. The color shade I bought is No. 01. For me, the color number is just right, the glossiness on my face is also very good, and it will not become dry after a whole day.

I love this highlighter so much, you guys! Everyone should run out and buy a round for themselves! This is the ELF baked blush in apricot, and it’s a beautiful peachy-gold shimmer on my darker skin tone! It’s super buttery and really blends in well with my skin even if I’m not wearing any foundation! I like to use this with my fingers over a creamier liquid highlighter for a really blinding glow, or just with my fingers into my bare cheekbones for a more lit-from-within look. Overall, I’m so impressed with the quality of all the ELF products I’ve tried so far and can’t wait to try more! #cheriepartner #cheriecreator

💁FLAWLESS Make-up Base!
💁FLAWLESS Make-up Base!
All of us want our skincare routine to start paying off and show results on our skin. Depending on your skin type, achieving a flawless, airbrushed base is possible! For combination skin, my main concern with creating a flawless base is oil control and that my foundation stays on.I am careful with using the right skincase as the wrong moisturiser can lead to the dreaded cakey look. ✅ Moisturizer and Sunscreen Consider skin care as your makeup. I ensure that my skin is well cleansed and moisturized for my foundation and concealer! The best way to ensure a gorgeous complexion before any makeup is used is to create a healthy base with a suitable moisturizer and sunscreen. My go-tos are Clinique’s Lotion and Murad’s sunscreen. ✅ Concealer and Foundation for right skin type I usually use concealer on your undereye circles first before foundation. As I have some fine lines around my eye area, I opt for a liquid concealer. Try not to pick a concealer that is too light as they will not hide the dark circles and instead make them look chalky. To use, apply the concealer in little stripes downwards with the applicator and blend them out gently with a dry clean finger or concealer brush. I am currently using L’oreal’s Infallible Pro Glow Concealer. It feels super lightweight on my skin, making it easy to blend for a luminous, buildable coverage. The water based concealer does not irritate my oilier T-zone or cause fine lines under my eyes. To build the next layer of the base, I spread foundation all over my face. Maybelline FIT ME! Matte + Poreless Foundation is great for combination skin. The oil-free formula is not too thick and sticky on the face, making it easy to blend. It also helps achieve a matte and poreless-looking finish. If I am going for a more natural look, one thin layer is sufficient. ✅ Setting powder To ensure a longwear result throughout the day, espeically during humid summer, no other product will do the job quite like a setting powder. There are various loose and pressed options that will help to keep chalky-looking skin at bay. I have been using Rimmel’s Stay Matte Loose Powder Transparent to lock in my make-up on my face. There are two benefits – my skin stays shine-free and my make-up stays on throughout the day with zero or minimal touch-ups. This transparent and fine powder blends effortlessly into my tanned skin tone to leave an airbrushed finish. To use, I apply with a powder or kabuki brush over foundation. ✅ Final Mist To secure all the base make-up products on my face, I spray my face with e.l.f. Matte Magic Mist & Set spray. The mist also comes in two sizes, and the small bottle fits well in my purse when I am traveling around. The multipurpose spray gives my makeup a lasting, shine-free finish in seconds. Infused with vitamins B, E, and arctium majus root, the norishing liquid feels fresh and light on my skin. The mist is also suitable for dry, combination and oily skins.

I’ve seen people compare this to the HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Powder because of its natural finish. This is a beautiful highlighter for those who don’t like an over the top highlight. I tend to lean towards this for everyday use as compared to something much more intense like the Becca Champagne Pop. It’s about $5 at Shoppers and you get a lot of product! It’s pigmented and doesn’t have a chalky consistency. Overall, worth it if you’re looking for a new affordable highlighter! PS it comes in two shades- the picture is of the golden shade but there is also a more silver one.

my everyday no makeup makeup look
my everyday no makeup makeup look
these drugstore make-up products are simply amazing for a no make-up look. First off let me just say that each of these products was under $10 first is e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer which was $8 at target. this primer keeps my skin nice and poreless. it's silky smooth and feels weightless on my skin. people say it's a dupe for the tatcha silk primer, but I wouldn't know as I've never worn the tatcha primer. next is the MAYBELLINE - Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation i love this foundation, because it's lightweight and breathable. however I only wear this is I'm going out for more than an hour. otherwise I just go foundationless. I got this for $6 at the dollar store. wet n wild - Photo Focus Concealer i pare this with a yellow eyeshadow under my eyes and it conceals the dark circles. again I only use this when going out for more than an hour. I got this for $4 at the dollar store wet n wild - Megaglo Contouring Palette i only contor my crease and nose for everyday looks. this is a great product for contouring and highlighting. so I use the highlighting portion to highlights my T-Zone. I got this for $4 at Target. I have naturally red cheeks. so I don't use a blush for everyday makeup. however I do like thee.l.f. - e.l.f. Round Blush it was only $3 at Target. I only use it for dates, outings, and parties. Coty AIRSPUN - Airspun Translucent Extra Coverage Loose Powder so this setting powder is not my absolute favorite setting powder, but it is a good drugstore setting powder. I got mine at Target for about $6. for eyebrows I just take a eyeshadow close enough to match my eyebrow hair color and I used that to fill in my eyebrows then I set it with a clear brow gel. also I can use this before primer in case the eyeshadow gets too messy. wet n wild - MegaLast Breakup-Proof Black Liquid Eyeliner is simply amazing. I got this for $4 at CVS. most liquid eyeliners have a shiny look to them but this liquid eyeliner is completely matte. MAYBELLINE - Volum' Express The Colossal Big Shot Washable Mascara I use two coats of this mascara and it does way better then three coats of theSEPHORA COLLECTION - LashCraft Length & Volume Mascara which is a high-end mascara. Maybelline is about $8 and Sephora is $12 MILANI - Bold Color Statement Matte Lipstick the shade color names are simply empowering. I use the shade 04, the name for it is I am strong. it's a peachy nude color. I pair that with the NYX - Butter Gloss in creme brulee. Milani was $7 at CVS and Nick's why $5 Target. to set my makeup I use a simple DIY setting spray which consists of aloe vera gel witch hazel, and water. if you wanted to sent this you could add a few ounces of perfume or some essential oil. this is my go-to everyday drugstore no makeup makeup look. I hope you try out some of these amazing products and DIYs.
