Eco friendly makeup brand: Alleyoop!
Alleyoop is a newer brand to me—they had been on my radar for a little while, and I finally got to try some of their products when they invited me to their content creator program. The whole idea behind Alleyoop is to simplify your routine with staple, multi-use products that are quick and easy to apply and blend. Their philosophy is to streamline your routine, eliminating products that you don’t need or don’t use, which is a very eco friendly idea when most makeup brands pump out product after product, not seeing to give much thought to how wasteful it can be. One of the products they sent me was the alleyoop - Stack the odds multi-use face palette

5 New Year’s Resolutions I’m making this year
Let’s elevate our beauty routines in the new year! My focus for 2021 is stress a little less, focus on what makes me happy, and indulge (whatever meaning that takes on, we’ll see!). And, I'm getting starting with these beauty resolutions... 1. Make double cleansing more of a priority. In 2020, I made a strong effort to ditch wipes. FOR GOOD! I fell in love with the Living Cleansing Balm from Then I Met You and it made double cleansing something I looked forward to. Excited to keep up the effort (it’s really balanced my oily skin) and find new products I love to cleanse with. Anyone have a cleansing balm they absolutely love? 2. Get in the habit of overnight lip care I’m a lip biter. When I’m stressed, I can’t help but put my emotions into biting my lips. I hate the habit and my poor lips suffer. And while lips heal fast, I’ve been looking for products that give them major nourishment and protection against my wicked biting. Milk Makeup’s Melatonin Overnight Lip Mask has brought them back to life, making this more of a ritual as it relates to my nighttime skincare routine I think I can do! 3. Have more fun with makeup 2020 had me going barefaced often. And while my skin could really renew and show its naturally dewy self...I missed playing around! I’m determined to have fun with my funky colored Skywash’s from Glossier and bright eye liners from Freck. Who knows, maybe I'll even break out the rhinestones. I’m ready to get a little wild. 4. Nourish the brows! I’ve been growing them out and while they look FAB, they need some TLC! I rarely fill them in when it comes to my makeup routine and I get them waxed/trimmed only about twice a year. I just got this new eyebrow soap from Lilac Beauty and they have been soaking up all the goodness from castor oil, cocoa butter, beeswax, and coconut oil. Highly recommend this, and taking suggestions for more brow care products! 5. Meditate more, stress less, and take baths Beauty meditation is totally a thing. And doing my skincare routine, painting my nails, or even taking a bath just makes me feel like time stops a little. There’s times where I feel it’s my chance to breathe and reflect. Being intentional with my routines like adding in more gua sha tool usage or time with my Nuface is something i’m striving for. But also, I’ve found setting intentions and using bath salts have helped me calm down from a stressful day. If you’re looking to add this into your beauty routine, check out bath salts from HELLEN, they’re life changing. What are your beauty resolutions for 2021? Comment below!
eco-friendly makeup products 🌍
Being environmentally sustainable has its perks and this alleyoop - Stack the odds multi-use face palette is one example of conservation that also shows innovation 😜 This multi-use face palette features 3 palettes: cream blush, bronzer and highlighter. The major game changer here was packaging 👉🏻 being able to conserve 3 plastic packages for 3 separate products into one! How does the product work though? I love the pigments of each palette. (pictured above is the cream blush in Sunkissed) compared to other “cream blushes,” this product was ready made for those on the go who need something quick and fresh before arriving fashionably late. I love the blendability of each palette and how even the cream blush can be used on your lips and the bronzer on your eyes. Would I recommend this product? I definitely would! It’s such an easy compact to store into your bag whenever you’re running late and need to freshen up. PLUS, it’s only ONE compact, not 3 separate ones. A key statement of alleyoop is “efficiency” and this product definitely demonstrates that. It’s environmentally and economically efficient by providing people with an easy compact to take without sacrificing plastic waste 😏🙌🏼
Makeup for oily, acne-prone skin
Like a lot of people, my skin type is oily and acne-prone. This can make makeup difficult: in the past, I’ve used makeup that clogged my pores and made my acne worse, or makeup that reacted with the oil on my face and made my makeup look cakey. I also really like a dewy, glowy makeup look, which can be difficult when a lot of makeup for oily skin tries to suck the oil up to make skin look matte. Over time, I’ve been able to nail down a makeup look that works great for my skin type. ￼First, make sure to use a good primer to keep makeup in place. I like FIRST AID BEAUTY - Hello FAB Pores Be Gone Matte Primer , which works great and doesn’t pill under makeup. ￼Next, use a base product. As strange as it seems, I love the Kosas - Tinted Face Oil Foundation for my oily skin—it actually has kaolin clay in it to keep it from looking oily, so the finish I end up with is semi-matte. It’s perfect! I apply it with my fingers and it blends easily. ￼Use a concealer if needed to cover and blemishes and/or undereyes. I love the Kosas - Revealer Super Creamy + Brightening Concealer because it has ingredients like arnica and peptides to visibly improve skin—it’s makeup and skincare rolled into one, and my oily/acne-prone skin loves it! ￼Use a blush with beneficial ingredients for skin. I love the alleyoop - Stack the odds multi-use face palette because the cream products have jojoba and sunflower oils. Since I just apply the blush on the apples of my cheeks, it gives me a glow right where I want it, without making me look oily all over. I also use a cream highlight on my cheekbones: the one in the alleyoop palette is great, as is the BECCA - Skin Love Glow Glaze Stick . They both have skin nourishing ingredients that help keep my skin from being too dried out by acne products—because makeup doesn’t look good clinging to dry patches. ￼Make sure to use a good powder to set foundation in your T-zone. I love the Milk MAKEUP - Blur + Set Matte Loose Setting Powder because it never looks cakey, even when I reapply—I took a star off for the packaging though, which can be inconvenient. A few more tips: I avoid cream products with coconut oil because they make me break out, and I wash my makeup brushes at least once a week because dirty brushes can spread bacteria and make acne worse. If anyone else has tips for this skin type, please let me know in the comments! #CheriePartner
holographic glitter tutorial ✨🌌
hello everyone! here is a holographic glitter tutorial featuring the nyx glitter brilliants! this look is so enchanting and iridescent ✨✨ let me know what you think and dont forget to follow and share! for the brown eyeshadow, i used MORPHE - 35O3 Fierce By Nature Artistry Palette whats cool about this rainbow and silver glitter is that you can actually use any color with it, but i think it pops out the most with neutral tones! another color may be too distracting ✨ for the glitter glue, i used NYX - Glitter Primer this primer is really great for loose, pressed, and glitter gels, as it helps hold the product to the eye amd prevent fallout! a little goes a long way❤️ for the actual glitter, i used NYX - NYX Metallic Glitter in the shade “star”. this glitter is magical! and paired with the primer it has very little fallout! it is literally rainbow in real life! the mascara is L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Original Mascara as always. i used to rate it four stars, but its taken a place in my heart, as ive neber found another mascara i like quite as much❤️
MORPHE-35O3 Fierce By Nature Artistry Palette
My favourite all-in-one palette I got in the UK 💗
All in one palette are a great way to have a few of your favourite products or shades in one place. The product I will be reviewing today is the N07 Highlighting palette that I was given for Christmas and is limited edition priced around £10 so be sure to check them out around Christmas as they will be sure to release another similar product. The set includes three shades. One off white shade, baby pink and a rose pink. I would recommend this product for the fairer toned complexion as the shades are so light. The product is exceptionally buildable, which is perfect as it can be so easy to go overboard with blusher and highlight. The pigmentation is most reliable on the off white and rose-pink shades. I notice I often receive compliments from friends who see when I wear these shades. The baby pink, however, is still a great shade though I find it sometimes blends into my skin tone a little too much. Additionally, the product long-lasting and does not smudge, fall or form a strange texture on my skin. This, I believe, is due to the creamy texture of the product, which can blend easily into your foundation. Upon application, it appears like a powder; however, to touch, it feels quite creamy. As all the shades are shimmery, this may not work for those who prefer a matte finish. Overall, for the price of the product and the shades included within the set, I believe it is excellent value for money and the perfect travel product. I would recommend trying out some NO7 products if you have the chance. Boots also offer lots of vouchers for this brand which makes it even easier to put it to the test.
