Ello there 👋🏼 just a chick out here trying to simplify my routine and learn more about skincare.
How I Use Glossier’s Cloud Paint!
Glossier. - Cloud Paint Duo Note: I’m not wearing any make-up, eye concealer, or foundation underneath where cloud paint is being applied. This really goes to show how pigmented these babies can be when you truly have some coverage applied beforehand! First off, I have suuuuper fair/light skin- I personally love neutral colors, so I initially went with Dusk and Beam. On my skintone, Beam appears bright while still holding its neutral pink tone across my cheeks. Dusk almost works as a bronzer on my skin tone, so I love working it in closer to my ears and lower cheek line. All of the colors Glossier has to offer are totally gorgeous- they are all worth investing in to mix colors and have some fun with it! Especially because they are truly are long-lasting, and can be multi-purpose on eyes and lips too. I’m considering getting the color Puff for the winter months- it’s such a gorgeous, light pink that can be blended with any and all of the colors Glossier has. What do you think?! Let me know in the comments below! Thanks for reading and watching this 🙌🏼😍

Add Glycerin to your routine!
On the evenings where I need some extra moisture and can notice extra bounce, I think I’ve found my go-to items. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream it’s been great so far! Love that it’s great for sensitive skin, or for skin that’s taken on a chemical peel and needs a simple but effective moisturizer afterwards. It’s also a fantastic multi-tasker that can be applied to elbows, knees, arms chest and neck very well. You don’t need much either- a little can go a super long way! Epic price point for the ingredients, and amount of use over time. I’ve had this cream about a month and a half and I’m only a third of the way through the small tub after applying it most places on my face and body before bed. I noticed my face, even applying more generously, was still somehow not feeling insanely moisturized certain nights, but it could be from the matte finish this gives? When it doesn’t feel enough, cue... now - Solutions, Vegetable Glycerine OH MY GOD. My skin is so bouncy and soft. Even the next morning, my skin feels so wonderful and smooth. Taking a first look at straight up vegetable glycerin in a bottle, it might appear thick in viscosity and seem too oily- but it’s absolutely not! It’s easily water-soluble, and soaks straight into my pores without feeling even a teeny bit tacky, sticky or overly thick in texture. It also does not easily oxidize- woohoo! I mix it in, just about 2-3 small drops with my FAB cream, and it’s been working wonders for the past few weeks. Guess how much this is for 16 fluid ounces? Anywhere from $4-9 at your local grocery store/ Whole Foods. Such a fantastic deal! This shit’s awesome, because it packs a moisturizing punch in the gentlest way possible. Loving the payoff! What have you been doing to get moisturizer going into fall/ leading up to winter?

New Season, New Makeup faves!
And a new haircut?! Omg, my first quarantine haircut and it’s been making me feel refreshed and reset for the fall season. ✨Want to know what else I’m loving about fall besides the sweaters and leaves changing color? Heated colors and eyeshadow palettes are back in style. I’ve discovered some new makeup that I’m excited can be added to my holy grail counter. Check it out! ✨Started my base off with Supergoop! - Zincscreen 100% Mineral Lotion SPF 40 PA+++ which is easy to reapply throughout the day while keeping the rest your makeup easy to touch up along with it without any weird pilling/ other layering issues whatsoever. ✨My eyebrows are already pretty thick, so no need to color in sparse areas. I grabbed Glossier. - Boy Brow in translucent and it keeps my brows with nice volume, lift where I want and hold all day. Love this! Glossier. - Cloud Paint Duo in Dusk and Beam were mixed together for a natural-looking, sunkissed flush. I also used excess product from Beam onto my eyelids and there’s been no creasing! This product works well with your fingers or with a foundation brush that has a thick surface area with lots of fibers closely wound together. It spreads so nicely either way- a little goes a long way! ✨I used CLINIQUE - High Impact Lash Elevating Mascara and while my lashes lengthen and become wonderfully defined, I wish the price point were a tad lower. Looking into something less expensive with the same results! ✨I’ve been so tired lately! New schedule and longer work hours. To brighten my eyes, I’ve gotten SEPHORA COLLECTION - 12hr Colorful Contour Eyeliner in their pearlescent off-white color, and I apppied that baby along the inside of my bottom lash line. Makes such a big difference making my eyes look bigger and brighter! On my lips, I’ve got MINERAL FUSION - Sheer Moisture Lip Tint on in Glisten- this lovely neutral peach that totally matches Glossier’s Beam for this nice monochromatic look. My lips feel so hydrated and look plump and healthy! While it does transfer, not a big deal to me at all- it’s a more eco-friendly company that can pack some great ingredients into their products. ✨Lastly, added this beautiful metallic, burnt umber eyeshadow, MEECH N MIA - MEECH N MIA Loose Eyeshadows in Copper, which can be applied SO easily in so many ways! Long-lasting shimmer that looks amazing with so many matte eyeshadow layers underneath. With it being loose, highly encourage finishing spray though! Otherwise, it’s the perfect loose metallic pot shadow. What looks have you been trying out for fall? Let me know in the comments ✨🙌🏼

Cute Magnetic Falsies!
EYLURE - Luxe Magnetic Baroque Full Lash these are SO fun! I give it four stars because I’m not sure I’m used to this look yet? Whatever! I had a ton of fun playing around with these pretty lassies. -eyeliner is super easy to apply and let set to dry within a minute or so (per layer) -follow directions; three layers truly allows the lashes to set on + stay on for hours! -0 issues with itchiness -no issues with these moving throughout my time wearing the eyeliner/ falsies -lasts up to 15 wears (I’m on wear #12, and the lashes seem to be going strong -very easy to apply and remove! I blink a lot but noticed these falsies can stay on and last throughout the day! I’m someone who has never used magnetic lashes before, and I have to say, this has been a pretty seamless product to use. Definitely love these for my Zoom calls where I need to give a big presentation to the big bosses and look more formal. Highly recommend purchasing and trying this out!

Supergoop! Product Haul: Which Product reigned supreme?!
Are you someone that feels informed enough to know how important SPF is, but you're maybe not 100% sure how to incorporate it into your skincare and makeup routines? Are you debating something chemical vs mineral? What's your lifestyle, and how are hoping to utilize SPF in your routine via Supergoop!'s stuff? Supergoop! feels like it had a revitalization happen, with it being summer, fused with the current trend that many are adapting, with an SPF-focused routine for the summer, and future daily lifestyle. It's come to more folks' attention that even staying indoors with COVID, it's important to avoid light damage from computer screens, as well as light rays that come in through open and closed windows! These rays of light can still reach your skin, and therefore impact it. I'm here to tell you about my journey with Supergoop! products I tested in particular, and the benefits and other things to note for each product + formula.
Low Maintenance, Minimal Makeup!
While we’re not really “on-the-go,” much right now, this is a list of my favorite products for a no-fuss day. These are pretty awesome products that I highly recommend you try if you haven’t yet! Rare Beauty - Positive Light Liquid Luminizer I give it four stars because it might not appeal to the folks who love having that super intense, glittery finish, and it can leave a stamp effect if used with brushes or most sponges. Otherwise if you’re into using your fingers to apply after using the doefoot applicator to apply on the back of your hand, with a natural finish, this could be your holy grail item! I moisturized with Supergoop! - Superscreen Daily Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 40 PA+++ and it’s fantastic. I get that dewy, glowy finish! Be careful getting this near your eyes though (of course😂)- I say this because I was in a rush and accidentally got it near the outer corner and my eye couldn’t stop tearing up for hours! Otherwise I’m getting so many benefits from this product- I have moreso sensitive than not skin and this has been great. There’s been no reactions and no breakouts! CLINIQUE - High Impact Lash Elevating Mascara love this mascara because it lifts and separates my lashes. My eyelashes curl naturally on their own, so I just need a mascara that lengthens and separates between each lash effectively. It’s easy to clean off too! Downside is that it can transfer because it’s not waterproof. Otherwise, love! I mix FENTY BEAUTY - Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter with my ULTA BEAUTY - Radiant Shine Lipstick on the back of my hand, then use my fingers to dab the mixture on my cheeks to get that youthful flush/ glow combo. It looks radiant, not sweaty, just below my eyes! I use the Radiant Shine lipstick on my lips occasionally too- super versatile, multi-tasking product and shade in their lightest nude pink for my skin tone. For this shot, I used the sun bum - Sunscreen Lip Balm SPF 30 it has the best taste ever! I run through it like crazy- while you can go through it fast, it works so well and makes my lips look incredibly hydrated, healthy and supple. I’ve worn it out on all-day boat rides or paddle boarding sessions and it’s protective! To conceal under my eyes, I’ve got the BECCA - Light Shifter Brightening Concealer I’ve been happier with it so far in days that I’m not using foundation. Haven’t tried it yet with my tinted SPF, but stay tuned! For bronzer, the Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color in Dusk works wonderfully. Literally my holy grail bronzer for winter and a color I mix with Glossier’s other cloud paint colors in the summer! What’s your favorite minimal makeup look? I’d love to know your favorite products!

Tips For Combination Skincare You Need To Know
Combination skin in is where your skin is oily in the forehead, chin and T-zone area (nose). But you may found your cheeks and other parts of the face very dry. Combination skin is like falls between oily and dry skin groups. It is caused by the overproduction of oil in some areas while the dry parts have less oil glands and moisture. Basically it is the imbalance of oil and hydration. Many people in this group would focus too much on Oil-control. Hydration is the priority and main cause and what we should actually focus on. Here are a few tips I want to share with combination skin. Stay balanced is the main purpose of our group who falls between oily and dry. Nice and tight moisturized. It has amazing ingredients and vitamin skin. Here is my skin care menu A.M.: Cleanser -> Toner -> Moisturizer or Day cream (Lightweight)-> Sunscreen (Zinc Oxide) P.M. Cleansing Gel -> Toner -> Serum -> Moisturizer On a weekly basis I would do 2 clay masks and face oil twice a day. Do’s From a wash off process as the first step in the skin care process, I would prefer a gel-based non-fragrance and non-foaming cleanser. I also prefer non-irritating ones. Don’ts When you have combination skin, it’s important to go with a gentle cleansing product that is not too harsh. Do not skip SPF. Wear sunscreen and always protect your skin from UV light for extra damage on cells. Here are two of my favorite timers that I love to use through out the year. they are both very light weighted and gentle. Light toners keep my skin calm and stable from acne outbreak or dryness. ORIGINS - Dr. Andrew Weil For Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion Limited Edition I use this after the facial cleanser. A little goes a long way. It gives an extra boost of hydration. Overall promotes really good balance and skin health. CAUDALIE - Beauty Elixir This elixir really helps you feel fresh, clean, and pampered. I LOVE the slight herbal smell.
Glossier: More than Aesthetics
When I first heard of this brand, I was a bit skeptical. I thought that that the company focused on packaging and marketing instead of quality formulations. I also thought that many of the formulas would have high concentrations of fragrance. After much research and testing, I have come to find that I was wrong. The brand has fragrance-free products with quality formulas. ——————————————————————————————— Glossier. - Bubblewrap Eye + Lip Plumping Cream This product includes antioxidants such as blueberry extract that can reduce factors related to sun damage. It also contains a skin replenishing peptide along with sodium hyaluronate which helps to plump skin. The hydrating ingredients of this product include squalane and avocado oil. -This product comes packaged in an aluminum bottle with a pump which helps protect the light and air sensitive ingredients from exposure. -The lightweight lotion absorbs quickly and works well under makeup. -Around the eyes, it immediately hydrates and it also works well if layered with other skincare products. -The product is easy to spread so a ton of product is not necessary. -Fragrance-free Glossier. - Super Glow Vitamin C + Magnesium Serum This product features a new form of vitamin C which is magnesium ascorbyl phosphate. This form of vitamin C could be beneficial to the skin, but lacks the research to prove of its brightening and anti-aging effects. -Water light liquid texture. -Fragrance-free. -Not much research behind magnesium PCA helping to energize skin. -Lacks other anti-aging ingredients to strengthen the formula. Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color Now this is a light-weight, cream blush that is easy to use. It aims to deliver a sheer color which is good for a natural finish. -This product is easy to blend and has a natural feel to it which is adequate for all skin types. -It’s easy to build up the color or just leave it for a more faint natural look. -Fragrance-free. Glossier. - Super Bounce Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin B5 Serum This is a hyaluronic acid serum that plumps skin and vitamin B5 for hydration. -Smooth liquid texture works well layered with other products or on its own. -Fragrance-free. -Needs more beneficial ingredients to bolster the formula instead of relying on two main ingredients. Glossier. - Balm Dotcom Now, this product has a very hydrating formula since it has petrolatum which is exceptional for dryness and has skin protectant properties. The formula also has beeswax, castor oil, and lanolin which are amazing ingredients to seal moisture in. -The mint version has menthol which can impair skin and lead to chapped lips. -The birthday cake flavor is formulated with limonene, a common skin irritant. Glossier. - Haloscope Dew Effect Highlighter A simple yet effective highlighter. -Fragrance-free -Has many beneficial plant oils Conclusion: This brand has many products worthy of recommendations!
reasons why you are breaking out on your face...
Acne is a skin condition that usually comes around once you hit puberty, and you shouldn’t be ashamed of that. Acne is normal and everyone is eventually going to experience it. ***** The chart above indicates what each part of the face means when you break out in that area. Forehead: the reason why you are breaking out on your forehead is because of stress, poor diet, irregular sleep, liver issues and digestive problems. Temples and eyebrows: usually people breakout in this area because of blood circulation problems, alcohol and processed foods such as fast food as well. Nose: people break out on the nose because of poor blood circulation, poor diet, constipation bloating and indigestion. Mouth and under nose: this can be because of a certain toothpaste that you may be sensitive to, constipation or spicy/fried foods. Chin: people break out on the chin because of hormonal problems, kidney problems and gynaecological issues. Cheeks: this can be because of stress, lung issues, kidney problems, bacteria from cellphones and stomach problems. Ears: not a lot of people break out in this area but if you do, it’s because of your kidney. that’s all you need to know, i hope this helps and sorry if it doesn’t make sense, my english isn’t very good 😅. stay safe and keep cleansing!
