DIY foundation

I heard of the term DIY makeup and was like... what could you possibly make makeup out of? But then I forgot my foundation on a weekend away and we were going out for a friends birthday and I had to improvise- and I realized I had to DIYy makeup 😱 All I brought with me was my makeup brush belt, which contains a select few makeup products, like my concealer, mascara, blush, bronzer etc. I had forgotten my eyeshadow palette and my foundation. So, naturally, I used my concealer as my foundation and my bronzer as eyeshadow. 😱 Having the two Benefit concealers in my collection benefit - Boi-ing Airbrush Concealer
and benefit - Boi-ing Hydrating Concealer
I normally layer them both in my undereye area, I start with benefit - Boi-ing Hydrating Concealer
in my undereye to brighten and smooth, and then I go overtop with benefit - Boi-ing Airbrush Concealer
and it literally gives it this smooooooth, airbrushed look. But last night, i didnt stop at the undereye area. I continued using the benefit - Boi-ing Airbrush Concealer
all over my face, applying and dabbing with a sponge and then blending with my foundation brush. You can how well that worked in my before and after pictures. Then I used my Too Faced - Sun Bunny Natural Bronzer
as a bronzer and took that over top of my eyelids too, to give a nice neutral toned eyeshadow look, and it actually worked really well. You can see the final look in my last photo, which I think was just as successful as using a light-medium coverage foundation and a fall inspired eyeshadow look 🤩 #cheriepartner

Eye makeup mistakes and how to fix them
I think at some point or another we all made at least one of these mistakes. The good news is the makeup artists of social media have spoken up and set the record straight. I myself have been guilty of all these mistakes myself years ago, but have learned the proper way to make my eyes look bigger. If you look at the comparison, you can see my eye area is smoother, brighter, and more open in the right side of my face- the side I made all the corrections to the makeup mistakes (picture on the left side of my face). To me, the difference is super significant. 💄 eyeliner: the mistake is drawing around your whole eye, and in even thickness, and for me, drawing in my water line. For me, I learned to draw only on my upper lid, and so always do a cat eye, making the line above my inner corner thinner then the cat eye line above my outer lid. The best way Ive been able to do that is to use a liquid liner, my go-to right now is L'ORÉAL - Infallible Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner . 💄 concealer: the most common mistake made is to only apply concealer to the under eye area (around the “bags” area) leaving the entire area under eye to the nose empty. Taking your concealer down all the way to thw bottom on thw nose and drawing kind of a triangular shape of concealer under the eye makes for a brighter, more natural finish. I also find that for me it opens my eye much more. benefit - Boi-ing Hydrating Concealer 💄 mascara: my mistake was applying one coat of mascara, focusing evenly across the entire lash line. The improvement I’ve found that opens my eye further and emphasizes the cat eye look is to focus on the outer lash and to apply 2 coats. L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara 💄 eyebrows: finding my way to draw my ideal brow shape took some time. The most common mistake that literally changes your face is drawing the wrong eyebrow shape that doesnt suit your face structure, or drawing too thin of a brow. Ive found the shape that suits my face best and try my best to recreate it exactly every time- eyebrows is hands down the hardest part of my makeup routine and i almost always mess it up or just take too long to get them even, but I know my ideal shape, and I can do my best to recreate it every time. benefit - Goof Proof Brow Pencil #cheriepartner

Todays final look from my 5 minute makeup routine (minus the amount of time it took to get the brows right). Such an easy natural look for an errand-run

All seasons look
This is go-to natural makeup look for any season- its great because it could a summer look or a fall look! The subtle holographic highlighter Milk MAKEUP - Holographic Stick is the key to making this look glowy and dewy- my summer fave- and the Too Faced - Sun Bunny Natural Bronzer bronzer warms the look- my fall fave. Tip: pack on the bronzer in areas where you would normally contour; as I skip contour, thats my key to make my look really nice and tanned-looking. I also love the soft pink lip, I think it goes well for all seasons because of my medium skin tone. I like using the liquid lipstick and topping it off with a lipstick to freshen up the look throughout the day ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Matte Lipstick

“No-makeup” makeup
My ultimate natural makeup look. My version of no-makeup makeup skips foundation and focuses on bronzer with a little bit of blush. I also add mascara and brows because I just cant go without those, but the real deal here is the base. Instead of using a BB cream or a foundation or powder, etc, I mix some bronzing drops in with my sunscreen. This gives me a bronzed look, although doesnt give much coverage, and is very easy to apply. This is great when I also am running short on time, its very quick and easy, I just work the mixture in with my hands. Then i pile on the bronzer, add a little bit of blush, and finish with lashes and brows. I like a bronzer thats really golden brown against my skin tone but also has a bit of a shimmer, so it give a really subtle, natural glow, and also acts as a two-in-one product- bronzer and highlighter. So the key here is to find an appropriate bronzing drop colour for your skin tone but also to find the perfect ratio of bronzing drop to sunscreen mixture that gives you a tanned, bronzed look but also natural for your skin tone. Ie. This shade can look really dark on me if I apply too much, and would look really glittery because its has a luminous finish. Swipe to see my finished look. #cheriepartner

Review: Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer
Review: Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer
I decided to try this concealer, because I needed a new concealer and I had heard good things about this one, both here and elsewhere. I purchased from CVS, where it retails for $10.29. But I had coupons and Extracare Bucks, so I got it for $2. They have 18 shades. I am using light honey. I applied to half of my face so you can see how it works. I would call this a medium coverage, but the formula feels very light and does not settle into the fine lines around my eyes like some heavier concealers can. I normally use a color corrector under my concealer, but did not in the photos above. I did try this one with my color corrector yesterday and they blended well. When I first opened the package, it took a minute to get the product up in the sponge applicator. But after that, I had no issues with this product. It is definitely worth the money, even if you pay full price.

Quick and easy video call makeup
Quick and easy video call makeup
Times have changed so much, now most of us are only going to work virtually, which has its pros and cons. One Pro is that work is literally downstairs or the next room, but the Con with that might be that we roll out of bed too soon before a meeting- I know that would be me 😅 and would end up looking like a zombie for the call. I think a quick and easy makeup routine would be everyones go-to right now, especially in these cases, which is why Ive come up with my go-to quick and easy makeup look that passes up virtual meetings. The key is to have very few steps, and very effective (pigmented makeup) allowing you less time for makeup application. My routine consists of my medium-full coverage foundation BITE - Changemaker Supercharged Micellar Foundation - a really lovely foundation with a natural finish, a lightweight concealer benefit - Boi-ing Airbrush Concealer - good for fatigued eyes and puffiness, but not so much dark circles (fortunately I dont have that concern) bronzer, blush and finish off with a mascara. For the sake of a quick look, I skip eyeshadow, eyeliner and dont focus on coverage for undereyes or acne spots. Theyre barely noticeable on camera anyway without makeup, so foundation should do the job just fine 👍🏼👍🏼 Let me know what your quick and easy makeup routine for virtual work is looking like these days!
