throwback to a good day

This day will forever stay in my heart and I am so grateful for that (also it was my dad's birthday and taylor Swift anouced that she is releasing evermore like ,how iconic ?!!!!) tourlou 🪐 worn smashbox - Photo Finish Oil & Shine Control Matte Primer PÜR - 4-In-1 Love Your Selfie Longwear Foundation & Concealer e.l.f. - 16HR Camo Concealer Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color FENTY BEAUTY - Match Stix Matte Skinstick Glossier. - Wowder Weightless Finishing Powder LUNAR BEAUTY - Moon Prism Blush Palette BECCA - Sunlit Bronzer essence - Pure Nude Highlighter MAYBELLINE - Fit Me Matte + Poreless Powder benefit - Precisely, My Brow Pencil Waterproof Eyebrow Definer URBAN DECAY - Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion COLOURPOP - Stone Cold Fox Shadow Palette PAT McGRATH LABS - Mega Mothership: Celestial Divinity Eyeshadow Palette Too Faced - Damn Girl! 24-Hour Mascara MAYBELLINE - Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick Spiced Edition FENTY BEAUTY - Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer

So I created this look by randomly selecting my 3 colors out of a bowl and making it work. Honestly was a little worried at first because I have not worked with green a lot. But it worked out I think! The Breakdown! FACE! ILLAMASQUA - Hydra Veil Primer e.l.f. - Acne Fighting Foundation e.l.f. - 16HR Camo Concealer MILANI - MILANI Baked Blush #e.l.f.

A cute powder foundation!
I recently went to Target and this caught my eye. It’s so pretty! It’s a really nice affordable powder foundation. I don’t really use powder foundations often because I have big pores and most if not all settle into them and are super noticeable. WINKY LUX - Diamond Powder Foundation I will give this a 4/5. It is really pretty on the skin. It’s not heavy looking at all and looks really natural. It’s lightweight and doesn’t look cakey looking. I really like the packaging also. It’s so pretty! I will upload a video of me using it!

Natural + Dewy Beat Using New Products 💖🤩🥰
Hey Cherie Fam! 🍒 Happy new year all! I decided to do a natural and dewy makeup for my first look of 2021...and by natural I mean no lashes and no crazy and dramatic eyeshadow. For some this may be dramatic so it depends how you define “natural”. ...and by new products I mean new to me. Sorry that the tittle is a little click-baity 😳🥺 I got new products that I’ve been trying and loving lately. For DRUGSTORE PRODUCTS, I used: • MAYBELLINE - Lifter Gloss With Hyaluronic Acid I am wearing the shade petal and omfg I am never spending $$$ on fenty again because this is the exact same dupe. Formula feels the same and smells the same •wet n wild - MegaGlo Blushlighter I love this product, however I don’t think this is a “blush”. I thought the pink side was a blush but it’s as sheer and as shimmery as the highlighter. On the plus side, this is helping me GLOW and look dewy af. I got the shade “I Met Someone” •e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer I talked about this primer so many times and it’s so worth the $8! I don’t even use my high end primers anymore •e.l.f. - Instant Lift Brow Pencil I ran out of my HG brow pencil (Benefit Precisely my Brow) and tried this. It’s so creamy and the quality is so good. Did I mention it’s $2 • essence - Volume Booster Lash Primer I bought this after@madisonnoonsposted about it. I used L’Oréal primer but this is much cheaper and better •NYX - NYX Retractable Eyeliner I used to love Colourpop liners but they break easily on me. This has a much creamier and sturdy formula. I use the nude and white shade HIGH-END PRODUCTS •ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Micro-Stroking Detailing Brow Pen I got the shade in dark brown and I prefer this much more than benefit’s microfilling pen. It’s much more precise and easier to use •ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Pro Pencil You don’t need this. You can use concealer to clean up your brows but this makes it much easier and faster. I caught ABH’s 2 for 30 deal otherwise I wouldn’t repurchase •NATASHA DENONA - Mini Nude Eyeshadow Palette My current favorite 🤩 I have been using this and it’s perfect for an everyday look. The formula is amazing! I would invest if they had a bigger palette By the way shout out to @cheriefor my merch 🥰 the sweater is so comfy and I love the hat! I truly am proud to be a #CherieCreator Xoxo, Francesca 💋
It’s a bit outta my comfort zone but I no longer see a comfort zone, I’m pushing through hit or miss. You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take so... #KissedbyKissy💋 FMOIG @Blxck_Kvtty FMMUA @_KissedbyKissy FMOT @ Blxck_Kvtty🖤
I am shocked and in love!!!!
This highlighter is gorgeous! Oh my goodness. The product is creamy and goes on so easily. It smells wonderful and wears for so long. There are multiple shades for all skin tones. I am just speechless at how gorgeous this looks! RITUEL DE FILLE - Rare Light Crème Luminizer 5/5 stars for me! The shade I used ghost light. This brand uses the least amount of ingredients as possible for each product. They don’t use fillers and are leaping bunny certified cruelty free. Have you ever worn a product and just felt expensive!? This is IT!!!!! Let me know what you think!!!

Sephora Sale: tried & true with some new! 🛍
If you haven’t yet stopped by Sephora for the holiday sale, make sure you do! The sale ends 11/9 and Beauty Insiders get 10% off, VIBs have 15% off, and Rouges have 20% off! Shop soon to take advantage of the sale for holiday shopping or a treat for yourself! TATCHA - The Liquid Silk Canvas: Featherweight Protective Primer - I absolutely love this primer! As a person with combination skin, I try to not use heavy primers so that my pores aren’t clogged and my makeup doesn’t last, but this primer is so light. In addition to making your skin look great by blurring pores and lines while reducing oil, the floral fragrance and packaging are beautiful. On light makeup days, I love wearing this, spot concealer, and a light round of setting powder as a base. Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Toner - This is a new find for me that I picked up the other day and have already seen incredible results from! My typical combination skin has been dry in patches on my forehead and nose making it hard for me to wear foundation and or see any effects from my other skincare products. I decided to change my toner after seeing some reviews of this online and I’m so glad I picked it up. The fragrance is minimal, if any at all, and the hydrating properties are simply incredible. My skin feels smooth and the dry flakes have vanished over two days. Yesterday, I was able to wear my foundation for the first time since the summer without my skin feeling tight or having to slather on moisturizer. If you struggle with dry skin, take advantage of the squalane in this toner to revamp your skin! NARS - Soft Matte Complete Concealer - I purchased this concealer after hearing Mikayla rave about it on tik tok and needing a replacement for my benefit - Benefit Boi-Ing Industrial Strength Concealer that I’ve used for about a year! In comparing the NARS and Benefit, the NARS concealer has about twice the product! I’m incredibly pleased with this concealer’s ability to blend into the skin, be matte while not drying, and the pot packaging! If you’re looking for something to coverup a spot here and there, this is it. fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Oil-Infused Serum - I have an undying love for fresh products that began with thefresh - Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 about two years ago. Since then, I have tried thefresh - Rose Face Mask , fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Toner , fresh - Lotus Anti- Aging Daily Moisturizer , and many more. This product is no exception and is one that is hydrating while not greasy. I’m totally aware that oil in the name can be unappealing, but it provides a nice healthy glow, softens, soothes, and absorbs so quickly. This is great face serum/oil that I recommend to people with dry, combination, normal skin and those who are not sensitive to fragrance.
Pink ladies 💅🏼
Loving the packaging on these guys! Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color love this stuff, but not quite as much as expected. I got the puff color, and while I love the color, it’s too pigmented for me. I end up having to rub it all over my cheeks just to make the color a bit lighter, then half my face is pink, instead of just the spots I want. It may be user error though, so I’ll keep trying. It truly lasts throughout the day, and I love the texture—super smooth on my cheeks. KYLIE COSMETICS - Kylighter this is meh for me. Again, possibly too pigmented. It really just takes a single swipe of the brush and you are good to go with pretty intense highlight. fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 I was so excited to buy this stuff because the reviews are amazing! However, since I was getting it more for the chapstick/SPF purposes, I wish it wasn’t quite so dark on my lips. It really looks like lipstick, but the color doesn’t last like a lipstick. tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush For the life of me, I cannot get this stuff to stick on my makeup brush. No color comes off, so I’ve pretty much given up on making it work. Hanskin - Hyaluron Skin Essence I use this when my skin is feeling extra dry, usually paired with my moisturizer! I haven’t noticed a huge difference when I use it, however. KYLIE COSMETICS - Vitamin C Serum this is the first Vitamin C serum I have used, so I don’t have much to compare it to, and therefore don’t want to give it a super high or super low rating! I really like the consistency—it feels more like a moisturizer, but sinks into the skin quickly. It smells slightly odd, but that didn’t bother me. Overall, I think it was somewhat brightening for me, but I didn’t feel like I saw a major change. Glossier. - Wowder Weightless Finishing Powder love this stuff a lot on my skin, but the packaging is frustrating. It has sort of a net material on the inside, making it kind of difficult to get powder out. I do feel like it sits nicely on my face and lasts throughout the day, just wish I didn’t have such a hard time getting it out!
Makeup Must-Haves for Glowy Summer Skin✨
I think we can all agree that in the summer we love a glowy, no-makeup-makeup-look right?! Or at least that’s what I’ve been going for lately! These are the products I’ve been reaching for the most to achieve that look👇🏻 • PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzer - it smells soooo good and gives a natural glowy finish to the skin (no chunky glitter). This one is super affordable (drugstore) and wears like it’s much more expensive! • Haleys Beauty RE:PLAY Foundation + Contour Sticks (I have shades 2.15 + 4.25) - these are sooo good! They are creamy, blendable, and buildable. I use them as if I were contouring + highlighting my face and the look I get in the end is so beautiful and natural. I am also OBSESSED with their RE:INVENT BB Drops - they are a must have when it comes to glowy summer skin also! • Haleys Beauty RE:COVER Pressed Powder (I have shade 2.25) - this is a full-coverage powder foundation and it does an amazing job at covering my redness and blemishes without looking cakey or powdery. I love to use this with just a bit of concealer under my eyes and then this all over the face - it has such a beautiful finish. • ILIA - Limitless Lash Mascara - this quickly became a favourite of mine thanks to its double-sided brush + super black formula. I love that this is a clean alternative and it wears really well. The brush as one side where the bristles are super close together so it’s perfect to get every little lash as well as your bottom lashes; then the other side is perfect for building some volume! • fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 - I have a few shades of this one but my favourite is the Honey. It’s that “my lips but better” shade and I find it to be the perfect combo of colour + treatment. I love using a tinted lip balm rather than a gloss or lipstick when I’m going for a natural look and these are perfect for that. That’s it that’s all, hope you enjoyed reading about some of my current summer must have makeup products!🤗

Myth Busted: Do You Need a Primer
This week on myth busting we’re looking at a popular question I received from 3 different people this week alone. Do you need a primer? and What do they even do? Well first, a makeup primer is a base for foundation or base skin makeup, that allows the makeup on top to go on smoother and stay on longer. The formulas range from cream, to gel, to powders, but they all work pretty much in the same way. Most people skip a primer because they believe that a moisturizer does the same thing however, this is false. Primers, give makeup something to hold onto, where as a moisturizers only goal is to moisruze your skin. An oil moisturizer will sometimes even repel makeup, or make it harder to put on. May makeup primers are formulated with silicone based polymers, like dimethicone because of their temporary ultra-smoothing effects. However always do a patch test on you armpit or legpit first, because some people report getting allergic reactions to the compounds. Physicians Formula’s makeup artist Joanna Schlip also notes that primer can help temporarily cover or hide fine lines, wrinkles, or large pores. They can also help color correct skin concerns. For example a orange primer will help cancel out blue under eye circles, or a green primer for redness. Primers main job is to re texture your skin, or color correct it. If your skin doesn’t need either of those things, you don’t really need a primer. However getting an oil free moisturizer may help. Down below I’ll list a couple great primers, but you don’t need to have them. Please leave your beauty question or myth in a comment below or feel free to dm me @_sips_tea_ on Instagram for a good chance that I will answer your question AND shout out any of your social media platforms.

Elf Halo Glow Setting Powder in Light
e.l.f. - Halo Glow Setting Powder This is a powder I tried out because I ran out of the Becca setting powder and it wasn’t quite time for me to do my big Glossier order to buy the Wowder. I actually really love it! It comes nowhere close to my love for the Wowder but it’s a nice glowy powder that sets my foundation and still looks like skin. It keeps everything set without looking cakey or powdery. I got whatever the lightest shade is, pretty sure it’s called light, but it’s more like a translucent shade. We’ll see how that goes as summer gets closer and I get more tan. So far I love this and it’s replaced my Becca setting powder!
e.l.f.-Halo Glow Setting Powder
I love my new stick foundation from Bite! It’s a great colour match after it settles into the skin and oxidizes slightly. I buffed it in with a brush and it was easy instant coverage. I like how it smooths out and makes my skin look so so healthy! I wish it was more long lasting however Milk MAKEUP - Flex Foundation Stick

L’Oréal Infallible Full Wear Concealer
L'ORÉAL - Infallible Full Wear Waterproof Concealer this concealer is great. I’ve heard that it is compared to the Tarte shape tape concealer! It has full coverage. I typically just put a dab of it in the inner-corner of my eyes and it completely covers everything I want covered.

Product Letdown: Tarte Shape Tape Concealer
I have a love-hate relationship with this concealer, which I wasn’t expecting to have since it has got so many amazing reviews. For me, I’ve found that if the skin isn’t perfectly prepped and hydrated, then the product isn’t going to perform. It clings to dry spots and accentuates them and doesn’t blend nicely around pores. Depending on the day, the concealer can make my makeup look cakey and not work with my skin at all. It is great when it comes to coverage and I know that it will keep my skim even all day. But again, you need to make sure that everything is good before you apply. I won’t use this concealer when I know my skin will be dry - and if I do, I make sure to pile on the moisturizer and go over my dry spots with Weleda. tarte - Shape Tape Concealer
