Fell In Love With An Eyeshadow Palette
Too Faced - Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer I fell asleep after taking these pictures and woke up with my eyeshadow perfectly intact! LORAC - PRO Palette Noir The shades are buttery soft, intensely pigmented and blend beautifully. Luxury quality at half the price. I can’t rec this palette enough. I even used a deeper blue color, which I have never ever done before and it turned out well. WANDER BEAUTY - Mile High Club Volume and Length Mascara Only Pat McGrath does it better. UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation in T1N. I gave myself a little more coverage today. It has a faint smell when first applied but sets beautifully and covers like a dream. I don’t even think you need a luminizer underneath. OFRA - #OFRAglow Signature Highlighting Palette I used Bali on my cheekbones and topped it with a bit of Star Island. Star Island is fine. Bali is gorgeous, creamy and easy to work with. It is worth the (sale) price of this palette all on its own. URBAN DECAY - Original All Nighter Setting Spray Ornament A nice product that set my makeup well without mattefying my foundation or highlighter and did not have a scent. PAT McGRATH LABS - Mattetrance Lipstick Celestial Divinity Collection in Amour. First of all this looks nothing like the website picture. Second it pulls a little warm on me. Third her matte lipsticks always scare me because they look so matte in the tube. However, I loved this color both in pictures and IRL and it is nowhere near as matte as it appears in the tube. It has a nice creaminess to it that made it so comfortable to wear. A fun birthday treat for myself. I am looking for a champagne eyeliner (vegan) to line my waterline with. Any recommendations? Thank you!!
J’adore (Lorac) Noir
Too Faced - Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer This is the best primer out there regardless of what the marketing and awards say. WANDER BEAUTY - Mile High Club Volume and Length Mascara I had my eyes dilated and my mascara did not smudge or run from all the drops. I was impressed. It has a tendency to get a little crunchy as the day goes on but that could be because I apply 3 coats. LORAC - PRO Palette Noir I have always been a fan of these shadows and thought they were underrated. Noir is their new formulation and when I dipped my brush into the pan I was shocked. These shadows are creamy, intensely pigmented, apply like a dream and don’t kick up eyeshadow dust. Run, do not walk and get this palette. These shadows are comparable to luxury shadows. Lots of neutrals but fun neutrals. I can’t wait to spend more time with this palette. I only used one shade for this look because I was trying to keep things simple. DIOR - BACKSTAGE Glow Face Palette in Rose Gold. They give a lovely subtle glow to the cheeks. They are very soft so be careful with them. Mine arrived with one of the colors broken in half. The beauty of it, and also the eyeshadow, did not show up in my pictures. Sometimes lighting just isn’t on your side. I have wanted this highlighter palette for awhile and I am glad I own it. If I could do it again, I would pass on it though given the cost. UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation in T1N. I love shaking this foundation before application. Does anyone else enjoy that? Two pumps covers my whole face. It has a medium consistency and I apply by hand. I have stopped using the shape tape because I didn’t like the texture. This foundation provides enough coverage right now and does an excellent job of evening out my complexion. It also sets without powder or spray which is nice on asthma days. OFRA - OFRA Lip Gloss in Love. Mixing in another texture and brightening up my face with this nice pink coral lip gloss. It is only a little sticky and feels great on. It has a nice slip. So that is what would be my 10 minute makeup look except as a disabled person everything takes me twice as long. Do you have a palette you are looking forward to buying? Also, again, the lighting is off for the pictures. Sorry!!!

Subtle Glam For Breakfast At The Diner
Too Faced - Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer Once it dries (in like seventy years) it is basically eyeshadow glue. LORAC - Pro Palette 4 This is a seriously underrated company. The colors were nicely pigmented and blended well. There was some fallout but considering I got the palette for 1/2 off, and it was easily cleaned up, I have no complaints. A great color story that looks even better on than it does in pan. UOMA BEAUTY - Stay Woke Luminous Brightening Concealer in .75 Even with powder this didn’t stay. Already returned. bareMinerals - Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 in Opal. A nice glow and decent coverage but I should have worn foundation. NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla. An excellent color match but it didn’t last through bacon and 5 cups of coffee. I will see if it works better as an under eye concealer next time. Beauty Bakerie - Face Flour Baking Powder in Oat. This lasted through bacon, coffee and a nap. I don’t know what they are using in that kitchen but it is MAGIC. A little more matte than I would like but nothing is perfect. BECCA - Limited Edition Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter I love this color on me. It is like is Nars Orgasm and OFRA Rodeo Drive had a Fulbright Scholar baby. GUCCI - Rouge à Lèvres Satin Lipstick in The Fallen Sparrow. Such a gorgeous color and versatile as well. Wears well. Comfortable. Well worth the splurge.

10/10 DANG I LOOK GOOD. Best complexion products
Okay, I know the title drew you in... WELL I’m here to say that it’s absolutely true. This is the best foundation I’ve ever used and I’ve tried A LOT! (I used to work at Sephora, so you can imagine how many I’ve actually tried.) ANYWAY! Skipping to the review. Let me introduce you to Uoma Beauty. Uoma Beauty is a brand making moves that I wish all brands would! Their shade line for complexion products is based on undertone and skin type AND it has a huge shade range. Anyone can find their match and it’s really easy. They have a quiz and you can match another brands shade to one of theirs. Out of the 6 shade groups, I am Honey Honey the olive undertone. I am always looking for a perfect olive undertone foundation, but always seem to fail. Foundations are too orange/yellow or neutral olive and turn grey on me. Uoma Beauty Honey Honey T1 is the spot on perfect warm olive match for me. Each shade group is made with different ingredients to cater to the undertone/skin types reaction to the sun. So mine helps with premature aging, repairing the skin, sebum production, inflammation, and protection from free radicals. Find your foundation match and there is a concealer and contour highlight stick to go with it as well. UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation Requires some shaking before use, but expect amazing coverage and finish. + buildable coverage. Light to FULL coverage. + soft matte/natural finish. Not heavy, looks super natural and like skin. + LONG LASTING. I wore this for 12hrs without primer and it stayed put. + has a light scent, but it’s really nice and dissipates. + no oxidation! Doesn’t turn colors. UOMA BEAUTY - Stay Woke Luminous Brightening Concealer This concealer *bleeps* on all my other concealers. + she’s thickk, but creamy and comfy. + little goes a long way. + medium to full coverage. + hydrating! Not heavy. + very long lasting. + not slippery. Stays put. - creases, but what concealer doesn’t? UOMA BEAUTY - Double Take Contour Stick I think we all have problems finding the correct shade to contour. At first I thought this shade was way too dark, but it’s PERFECT. The highlight shade is also perfect for my skin tone. + creamy/ buttery soft texture. + so easy to blend. + very pigmented. Little goes a long way. + highlight is more glossy than shimmery. The whole brand is a hit and my complexion has never looked so good!

MY CONCEALER AWARDS
Best Finish Award: ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Radiant Concealer If you’re looking for a concealer that has a soft radiant finish that isn’t too dewy or matte, this is the one! I love wearing this when I want to look like I almost have no makeup on and I use the shade 2W. It gives pretty good coverage and definitely still looks like skin! Best Coverage Award: MAKE UP FOR EVER - Full Cover Concealer Meet the concealer that I’ve been using for 6 years! I loooove this concealer for my breakouts and scars. This is seriously the highest coverage concealer I’ve ever tried! It covers literally anything and is waterproof! I use this only for pinpoint concealing- and shade 6 is my perfect skin match! Best Everyday Award: ARMANI beauty - Power Fabric Concealer This is such a great all-rounded concealer. I love the finish, the coverage and the lasting power of it. I use the shade 5.25 and it’s perfect for everyday use! It gives just enough coverage for me to perfect my skin and it also last pretty long! It works for under the eyes or all over the face for a thin veil to even out discoloration! Best Shade-range Award: FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Concealer This concealer my perfect skin match when I’m at my palest- and it’s probably the palest shade I own! I love this concealer so much because there just so many shades to choose from that you’ll for sure be able to find a perfect match. The coverage is pretty high with this one but it still manages to look skin-like. I can tell I have makeup on when I’m wearing this- but not in a bad way! Just very perfecting. I use the shade 145. Best for Photo/Video Award: MAKE UP FOR EVER - Ultra HD Self-Setting Concealer This is my go-to concealer for photoshoots or events because it just looks so great for photo and video! I love that it never has flashback and it makes my skin look flawless in person and on screen! There are also so many shades to choose from. I love using this either just under my eyes or as a thin layer of foundation! It looks so natural but flawless. I use the shade 30!

Mix them up! Get a better foundation
I'm very picky to the foundation because I have dry skin. The hydrating, coverage, texture, finish of a foundation is all very important. I got Kevyn Aucoin Etherealist Foundation in Sephora. When I try it store, I like its nice coverage, lightweight texture and fragrance-free. While after few times try on my skin, I found it somewhat dry out my skin. So, I put it away. To get a flawless foundation makeup, I know it’s very important to put on a primer. I got Armani Maestro UV primer, which is one of Armani Beauty's best sellers. It has broad-spectrum SPF 50 that is really amazing, as a primer, I like it. It uses antioxidants fillers to mimic the behavior of collagen. The texture of it is oil-ish and a bit oily. It can soak into the skin well, but I will need to very careful of the amount. Or, my skin will get really greasy. Then, it occurs to me that why not mix them together. The thing is the mixture does do a great job. The mixed foundation becomes very easy to blend and definitely buildable. It is really lightweight and fluid, which provides my skin great moisturizing, and makes my skin looks glowy without oily looking. It won't be cakey even if I wear makeup over 8 hours. Mixed with oily texture primers will not affect its coverage. It could still cover my blemishes. Before I give a try, I cannot imagine how well could two beauty products mix together. Kevyn Aucoin foundation costs me $58, and Armani primer is $64, which are really pricy! This amazing try totally save my money!

How I match my face skin tone to my body 👏🏻
Hi friends! If you’ve been following me on Cherie or my Instagram for a while, you’ve probably seen me talk about my rosacea and redness/acne prone skin. This makes it kind of difficult for me to find an accurate foundation shade since I’m not trying to match it to my face shade—I want to match it to my body/chest color! Enter Clinique’s line specifically created for fair skinned people with rosacea and redness. This product in particular, the redness solutions makeup CLINIQUE - Redness Solutions Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 with Probiotic Technology has been a lifesaver for me on days or nights when I’m attending events and I want to take my look to the next level. This foundation has technology in it to help correct redness without an icky green cream and it helps your redness overall over time. Personally, I don’t have the patience to do my makeup every day so I haven’t noticed a difference in my overall redness but using this once or twice a month has really opened my eyes to this line of products. I made sure to get a sample of this from Ulta before making the splurge (it costs $30 for a 1oz tube of foundation) and I’m so glad I did! My skin is very reactive to any allergenic/natural ingredients so I try to get samples when I can. The sample I got was only a small amount and I’ve been able to stretch its use over 4-5 months. It’s a thicker formula but blends out super easily and is weightless on the skin. I don’t set it with powder when I wear it and it has pretty great staying power! The photos above are my skin with ONLY foundation — I usually follow up with concealer in spots that I don’t use foundation like my undereyes. Photo 2-dabs of the product on half of my face Photo 3-the foundation blended out on half of my face Photo 4-my entire face covered in the foundation This foundation has completely blown me away (I was skeptical because their redness products in the past did not work for me). When it comes to luxury brands/mid-level brands, $30 for this foundation is a steal. Especially because this tiny little sample has lasted me so long—you need barely any product to cover your whole face! I highly recommend getting a sample at Ulta if you are fair skinned and want to try to combat any redness or rosacea. This helps me match my body’s skin tone exactly! Unfortunately I have to give this product 4 out of 5 stars because Clinique is not cruelty free and that deters me from buying a full size bottle of this product.

HOLY GRAIL DRUGSTORE FOUNDATION
Ooooooomygod - let me start by saying that I actually can not and will not live without this foundation because it is !!! Claims: 24 hr fresh staying power (maybe like ,, ~16 hours let’s be honest, but STILL). Lightweight and breathable texture (yes), transfer resistant (it will def get on my sweatshirt if i put it over my head after i put this on so no), natural finish (YES). I looove this because it’s non-comedogenic 🥰 gives me the smoothest and freshest appearance 🥺 and it does NOT oxide 😤 it also blends out super easily and the consistency a good middle between runny and thick. It’s my perfect every day foundation! Sadly, this is ALSO an empty which means I will be repurchasing ASAP! L'ORÉAL - Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation
L'ORÉAL-Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation
Honestly one of the best foundations for my skin tone and skin type. I have this in the shade 12B fair beige. It says full coverage but I use a few dots of this and use my beauty blender to sheer it out a bit. Sometimes i take a little bit more and put it on my under eyes and use it as a concealer as well then set it a tiny bit and use hydrating mist; to make sure it’s not super dry under. It has the perfect amount of pink in it to match my skin really well. It doesn’t become too oily and doesn’t move all day. Areas like my chin and forehead I set a tiny bit with powder so it doesn’t fade away and this works. I love that this foundation is 1.7oz so it lasts a long time. I’ve had mines for about 1 1/2 years now. Def get a sample of this plus it has 40 shades! ✨✨ tarte - Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15
