Contour on fleek! Follow tips And tricks I’ve learned for a great contour! It seems like highlighting and contouring are here to stay and not really going out of style. It’s been a while, but do you know how to properly contour? 𝐂𝐑𝐄𝐀𝐌 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐨𝐮𝐫 _________________ Let’s talk about cream contour products and my favorite ones! UOMA BEAUTY - Double Take Contour Stick
My go to! This contour stick has blown away all of my other favorites. + It’s creamy and pigmented. + Not patchy. + Easy to blend! + comes in shades for all different skin tones! Some other favorites of mine: KKW BEAUTY - Crème Contour & Highlight Sets
𝐓𝐢𝐩𝐬 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐚𝐧 𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐲 𝐚𝐛𝐝 𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐨𝐮𝐫! Follow along with photos above! ① LIGHT HANDED— build up your pigment. you always want to start off with a little bit of product. You can easily build up your contour if you want it darker, but it’s more work to make it lighter if you start too heavy handed. If you look at my photo above, I only used that much product on each side of my cheek to contour my cheeks and forehead! ② PLACEMENT — where to apply. Specifically for the cheeks, you’ll want to start right at the top of your ear and go diagonally down towards the corner of your mouth. Tap just a tiny bit of product right at the top near your ear and basically in your hair line. Do not bring the product all the way down your cheeks yet. When blending out with a sponge or brush you will do this. ③ Get it done! — BLEND IT OUT. To blend it out take your pick of a sponge or brush. I like to use a damp beauty blender. I pinch my beauty blender together to make a line and use precise and soft tapping/bouncing motion to blend out. ALWAYS BLEND UP above your cheek bones. Envision where you want your contour to be and blend up from there. You’ll also want to blend into the hair line. While you blend you can bring the sponge down towards the direction of the corner of your mouth, but do not blend your contour all the way down!! Stop about half way or where the center of your pupil is. Even if your cheek bones aren’t prominent you will still be able to feel where your cheekbones are at to help guide you for where to blend out your contour. ④ finishing touches — perfect it! I personally like to make sure my contour is nice and soft, but noticeable. Depending on how strong of a contour I want, I’ll add more product and blend out more. If it looks good I’ll make sure it’s not patchy or give it a crisp like with foundation or concealer underneath it blended out. The overall process doesn’t take long at all for me and gets easier with practice. Leave your tips in the comments! #cheriepartner

My Process for Flawless Foundation
While I’m no makeup expert, I’ve found what makes me feel confident and beautiful. Here’s my process for achieving flawless foundation: Maintaining a healthy base is absolutely key to flawless foundation. Start off with a clean and moisturized face. Listen to your skin and watch how it reacts to products. Focus on skincare so that when you apply foundation, it’ll glide on in a breeze. If interested, I’ve described my skin routine previously for Cherie but if you’d like a spoiler, buy DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel After my face is prepped, I apply MAYBELLINE - Cover Stick Concealer directly onto any dark spots and redness. The green color helps to offset discoloration but it’s important to lightly blend it out afterwards so that the color isn’t too harsh and can be covered by foundation. And then comes actual foundation: You’re going to want to do research...and lots of it before you find your perfect fit. I’m not even sure if I’ve found mine, seeing that I mix two different foundations to satisfy my coverage and skin tone needs. There’s sheer, medium, and full coverage foundations so be sure to understand what you’re searching for. Look past just the labeling and what foundations claim that they’ll do. Go the extra mile and research the ingredients too. Try out different shades with specific undertones. Keep in mind that you may be a different color in the summer compared to the winter. I mixNARS - Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation and MAYBELLINE - Fit Me Matte + Poreless Liquid Foundation and have come to be satisfied with the outcome (although I’d love to only spend $$$ on one foundation). So, yes, it’s a journey and a long one that even I’m still on, but it’s one worth going on. I contour with KKW BEAUTY - Crème Contour & Highlight Sets and honestly I love these. The contour colors aren’t too light or too dark for me and glide on smoothly, perfect to blend. I use the typical beauty blender for my foundation and wet it with water as most do to prevent excess product from soaking in. Make sure to gently dab instead of just rubbing foundation in and use product conservatively. I use e.l.f. - Beautifully Bare Blending Brush to blend my highlight contour and really like it because of the brush’s precision. I can’t stress to you enough how important it is to consistently change your beauty blender and clean your makeup brushes. This goes along with protecting and maintaining skincare. I use MAC - Brush Cleanser and a brush cleansing pad that I bought from Amazon. I simply soak the cleanser onto each individual brush in a bowl, brush it over the cleansing pad, rinse it off with water, and leave the brush to air dry. It may take some time but it’s totally worth it every so often. Trust me, your skin will thank you.

TIPS TO LOOK DECENT IN PHOTO ID’s✨
If you clicked on this, you’re probably like me and care what you look like in your id photos. You have your license with you for quite a bit so it makes sense to want it to look good. Here are some tips I used to take my photo that left results that I’m not embarrassed to show others when needed. LESS IS NOT MORE You always hear how less is more and that’s usually the case when you’re not being photographed. In pictures, lots of the makeup can be lost through the lens if it’s not exaggerated. Think false lashes and over lined lips to stand out. STICK TO NEUTRALS Today is not the day to try out bright colors and glitters. (Choose shades that compliment your natural skin tone. It is important to match your foundation and avoid using black shadow/ liners.) With bright colors you run the risk of becoming washed out with a color that does not suit you and glitter can create unwanted flashback mistakes, which takes me to my next point. BE PICKY WITH YOUR SETTING POWDER Nobody likes taking a picture and seeing that washed out white-cast all over their face from setting powder. To avoid this, simply stick to fine translucent powders such as the laura mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder . Powders that advertise ‘HD’ tend to create a flashback when photographed. CONTOUR/HIGHLIGHTING IS YOUR NEW BFF Remember those crazy contouring looks from 5 years ago? With photographing ID’s, those skills may come in handy. A photo is 2D so we want to bring more to the photo with these illusions. Choose a highlighter shade up to 2-3 shades lighter than your skin tone and highlight the tops of the cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose, inner corner of the eye, and brow bone. With contouring, chose a neutral shade up to 3-4 shade darker than your skin tone and apply to the hollows of your cheeks, temples of the forehead, down the side of the nose, and finally the jawline. I recommend NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer for highlighting and KKW BEAUTY - Crème Contour & Highlight Sets for contouring.

Brows for days!
New #makeupmonday I have made the decision to explore WOC makeup (and skincare) brands and made my first purchase with Uoma Beauty. I absolutely love what this brand stands and knew I needed to give it a try! ———————————————————————————— “UOMA - pronounced OMA (uh-mah) means beautiful and we believe that beauty starts the moment you decide to be yourself. We exist to re-write the rules of inclusivity and diversity to create a world of beauty that truly is for all of us. UOMA Beauty is the most inclusive black-owned beauty brand. Founded by Nigerian born, LA & London based former beauty executive Sharon Chuter, the UOMA Beauty range is rebellious, innovative and created for all. At UOMA we are an empowered tribe. Our race is human, our people are free, our language is color. All are welcome to our beautiful tribe.” ____________________________________________ I’ve started with their UOMA BEAUTY - Brow-Fro Kit as I am always struggling to fill out my brows. I love all three products but unfortunately the shade it too light for me. This is the only disadvantage I’ve found to ordering makeup online. It’s so hard to guess which shade will be right for you. But each brow product it so easy to work with. I especially love the UOMA BEAUTY - BROW-FRO Blow Out Gel ! I can hopefully get it on my range the next time I place and order as I’d like to give the foundation a try in the future. I am LOVING the UOMA BEAUTY - Double Take Contour Stick in shade 3 honey/honey as the deeper color blends like butter and the highlight is gorgeous! Perfect for my brow bones, nose and high points of the cheek! And you can’t go wrong as right now instead of $40 it’s a whopping savings and only $15! The Brow-Fro Kit is on sale as well from $70 to $50! Have you tried anything from Uoma Beauty? I’d be very curious to hear what your faves are as I make the change to be more inclusive! Also, if you don’t follow @heysharonc on IG (founder) you’re missing out! An absolute beauty inside and out! ❤️

Monochromatic makeup! Blush on cheeks & eyes!
Monochromatic makeup! Blush on cheeks & eyes!
Not sure what to do with your makeup today? Pick up your favorite blush and let’s use it everywhere for a monochromatic look! One of my best tips for makeup is keeping it simple! For this look I took a go to blush of mine and used it on my cheeks and eyes and found a matching lipstick to match. Get your beat going and apply your blush onto your cheeks and then take an eyeshadow brush and dip into it and blend it out on your eyes. You can go soft and subtle to keep the look cohesive OR you can go with a bang and really be the center of attention. It’s really easy and great for when you are out of inspiration or just need something simple. tarte - Limited Edition Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Tarte has some of my favorite blush! It has the best wear with pigment and longevity. + glides on seemlessly + 12hr wear + made with Amazonian clay, mineral pigments, and vitamin E.

3 steps for a perfect base!
3 steps for a perfect base!
these are the three products I use if I want a super flawless face of make up. this is not what I use instead of skin care but rather, in addition to. I always start my make up by making sure I’m wearing SPF. what I love about these three steps is they’re a perfect starting point—you can either add products if you want to glam it up, or keep it like this for a simple, fresh face look. tarte - Shape Tape Concealer I like to start my base my concealing. a high coverage concealer like this one covers most of my imperfections, which in turn causes me to use less foundation than I would if I started with foundation first! I like to apply it under my eyes, around my nose, and a bit by my mouth, the areas where I have discoloration. L'ORÉAL - Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation this is my favorite foundation, it’s pretty good coverage but doesn’t look or feel cakey at all! I use 1 pump & usually just dot a few spots of this with my beauty blender. ILIA - Color Haze Multi-Use Pigment I love this pigment because it’s super natural looking and just a few specks add a beautiful effect to the skin. I use it on the tops of my cheekbones and along my nose to mimick where the sun would kiss my skin. I blend this in with my finger tips and rub any excess on my eye lids. that’s it! this super simple routine really helps me feel a little more comfortable in my skin, and looks ultra natural. #cheriepartner

Hint hint skin tint- Morphe 2 🔥
Hint hint skin tint- Morphe 2 🔥
Okay so it’s been about a solid week since using this foundation and I’m beyond blown away! Normally I lean away from anything that is sheer or light coverage because I have acne scars that show through that but this stuff is amazing! It’s so hard to explain because I’ve never used anything like this! It’s a thin water-based formula and goes on super watery but after it’s blended out it just sticks in place! The craziest thing is how it leaves this dewy finish when it dries down!!! Most “dewy” formulas tend to break me out because they’re heavy in oils and they also shift around if I don’t set them right away. However THIS is a game changer. A breathable, Water-based formula that leaves the skin dewy and not oily! I use the shade “Hint of Toffee” for reference. If you’re looking for something a little different, that can build up coverage and still look natural then I 100% recommend this foundation. Morphe hit it out of the park with their Morphe 2 line 🔥 MORPHE - Hint Hint Skin Tint

This makeup and hair was inspired by Audrey Hepburn in “Sabrina.” I have always loved Audrey’s simple yet sophisticated makeup looks, and her trademark bold, straight eyebrows. “Sabrina” is one of my favorite films, just for the gorgeous costumes and makeup looks alone. I completed this look using : ciaté - Editor Palette - New England Eyeshadow Palette tarte - Lights, Camera, Splashes Waterproof Mascara wet n wild - Ultimate Brow Micro Brow Pencil URBAN DECAY - Stay Naked Weightless Foundation L'ORÉAL - Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation Kaja - Mochi Pop Bouncy Blush wet n wild - Perfect Pout Gel Lip Liner tarte - Sea Color Splash Lipstick Milk MAKEUP - Hydro Grip PrimerBECCA - Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder Too Faced - Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer #cheriepartner
