My Drag Makeup: Eyeshadow
e.l.f. - 16HR Camo Concealer One of the tricks I picked up along the way is to create my own cream shadows/eyeliner! Sometimes paint pots can be mad expensive and you only end up using them a couple of times. A little of this concealer mixed with ANY powder eyeshadow creates a highly pigmented cream eyeshadow. I also use it as coloured liner! The more shadow you use, the more pigmented. Use a little for pastel shades. It's perfect for cheaper eyeshdows. I also use this product alone for highlighting. Definately reccommend!!
e.l.f.-16HR Camo Concealer
Why must we use these?!?
Makeup has been changing and evolving constantly over the years. Now we have these wonderful new tools to help us stay flawless and fresh all day! For the newbie they can both be quite daunting. I was MASSIVELY naive when I purchased my first bottle of setting spray and received a sample of setting powder. BUT WHY?! TACKLING SPRAYS!!! 💦 Purpose- Also known as fixing spray, is meant to set your look and keep MAKE-UP MELTDOWNS out of your life! AKA sweaty face ruining your work of art 🖼🤗! There are so many options!!!!😳 You have to pick the right spray for you! Your skin type matters a LOT here! Dry Skin- steer clear of sprays w/ alcohol....obviously a drying component. Make sure there is some kind of moisturizing 🧴 ingredient! Oily Skin- Stick to oil free sprays that won’t clog your pores. Combo- can use matte sprays because they need to get the best of both worlds! But what’s my skin type?! Shiny skin w/ large pores= oily skin Matte skin w/ small pores= dry skin 1 of each??? Combo obviously!!!! I am a matte complexion with large pores in my T-zone. DO FORGET ABOUT THE CLIMATES!!! Humid/summer climate= matte sprays w/ SPF 🧴 to control shine AND protect against the ☀️ rays!! Arctic Tundra= get that hydration spray stat! TIP for APPLICATION Spray in a sweeping motion at a steady pace. About 6-8” away from your face. I like to go from above so it falls on my face. When??? Honestly at this point sprays are used everywhere! It used to be once after your completely done ✅...but like I said Make-up is ever always changing and now it has soo many uses! Whether you are doing the new viral hack on TikTok, spraying your beauty blender to apply foundation, spraying a brush to pack on that glittery eyeshadow, or still just using it as a finishing product, it is very versatile so DO YOU BE YOU BOO! ❤️🤗 You can also set brow brush before applying brow powder. Or to keep lipstick 💄 from smudging! Also there is science 🧪 to why letting it air dry is best. Do not use heat or blow dryers to make it dry faster. You may irritate your skin. Like baking, it’s a process. ON TO POWDER!! Also known as translucent powder, setting powder, contains talc and silica (drying ingredients) to help ‘wet‘ products, ie: foundation or concealer, to set in place. It prevents excess oil from producing, (shiny face friends). 🤗 Powder will mattify your look, just sweep 🧹 a small amount over face. Also powder it meant for baking! A popular process where a good amount of powder is pressed onto ‘wet’ product in specific areas like under eyes 👀 to give a lighter, brighter look. This process takes about 10-15 minutes, by then you should be done w/eyeshadow. The. Just gently brush away the eyeshadow dust and powder to reveal a bright a flawless look! The baking process also helps blur caking or creasing of product in the fine lines some of us live with! 🥰 Bake in other areas to add to you contour game as well! ❤️ So there you have it, lots of good reasons to use!
Worth the money?? 👀
I’ve seen tons and tons of reviews on this product and this price point $65!! I’m allowed to have insanely high expectations. This isn’t advertised as a mattifying product, it does claim to control oils in your T zone. It didn’t do that at all... I followed my regular makeup routine and used Charlotte Tilbury - Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder instead of my regular MAYBELLINE - Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder And I was pretty disappointed. I was an oily mess about 4 hours in ☹️ Texture wise, it’s finally milled and the packaging is obviously gorgeous. Mine is in the shade medium. It didn’t add any coverage and I used a fluffy brush to set over my T zone and under eye. To be fair, I did try this on one of the hottest days of summer. I’ll continue using this product and update this review if anything changes! As of now, I feel there’s tons of better options out there for much much less 😬
Charlotte Tilbury-Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder
Some of my favorites from Pur Cosmetics What I like the most is that all of them are multitasking products! • 4 in 1 Foundation stick It has a beautiful - airbrushed finish, goes on smooth, very bendable, has medium to full coverage and does last all day long! It can also be used to conceal, contour and highlight! • Unlock the Secret with Contour Diaries - Ultra Matte Contour palette The formula is very nice, buttery soft and very pigmented - just a little goes a long way! I also like to use the lighter shades as eyeshadow base and the darker shades as eyeshadow! • Cameo Contour and Highlight stick Soooo fast and easy to blend! It looks so natural and I love it is cream to powder formula so I don’t need to use more powders! You can even skip the foundation! Perfect for on the go!

Brand spotlight:Laura Mercier
I am a royal fan of Laura Mercier. The brand is famous for its “flawless face”. My friend recommended this brand to me few years ago and brought a foundation for me from Malaysia. Iwas impressed by its coverage ability. This brand has skin-enhancing foundations, buildableconcealers and finishing loose set powders. I have tried some of the brand products and would like to introduce my fav and least fav products. [Brand: Laura Mercier] My favorite:Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation Size: 30MLColor: 1N1Price: 77 AUD I have tried several types of foundation over the years from NARS to Make up for ever, from light to full coverage. This foundation is the best I have ever used. It provides all-day buildable coverage with minimal product but never looks “cakey”. It is easy to apply even with my finger and looks natural on my skin. It has a matter finish and control my T zone where I get shiny easily. I recommend mixing the foundation with primer to make application smoother and imperfections can be perfectly minimized. I have finished two bottles of this. My face feels light and breathable after using it. It really makes my face very luminous and natural with color 1N1. My least favorite product:Laura Mercier secret concealer Size: 2.2gColor: 1Price: 45 AUD This product provides good coverage for a whole day. Normally I used it with my finger and the product, and it can melt smoothly on my face. It can cover my imperfections and blemishes perfectly while it also matching my skin. The color I chose can naturally cover my dark circle. It brightens my under-eyes area. Although this product applies creamy, it is still too dry for myeye. It results into cracks after applying. I recommend using it with Laura mercer translucent loose setting powder, avoiding the cracking and drying look.

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.3 DAYS AGO
