DIY TINTED MOISTURIZER 💫
DIY tined moisturizer is one of my oldest tricks in the book! I’ve been doin it for years and it has saved me so much money and counter space because I can use products that I already own. It’s great for days off when I want a little coverage for my face but I want it to be quick, easy and natural. The products I’m using to make my tinted moisturizer are dermalogica - Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 Moisturizer

Concealer’s For My Full Makeup Routine
Hey guys! Here is a little look at a full face routine that I do when I have the time. I love this look! When I do wear makeup I usually do this. Here is my list of products that I used for this look ￼BECCA - Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector ￼￼L.A. Girl - HD Pro Concealer -Fawn ￼￼L.A. Girl - HD Pro Concealer -Reddish ￼￼MAC - Mineralize Concealer -NW45 ￼￼BLACK RADIANCE - True Complexion CC Palette -Medium Deep ￼Too Faced - Born This Way Natural Finish Foundation -Tiramisu BLACK RADIANCE - True Complexion Soft Focus Finishing Powder -Milk Chocolate Finish BLK/OPL - True Skin Perfecting Stick Foundation 15 -Ebony Brown REVOLUTION - MAKEUP REVOLUTION Loose Baking Powder -Banana Deep BLACK RADIANCE - True Complexion Contour Palette -Dark to Deep BLACK RADIANCE - Color Perfect Highlighter Palettes -Sunkissed Glow SEPHORA COLLECTION - Colorful Wink-It Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner - Waterproof ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Pomade -Ebony JORDANA - Classic Lipliner Classic -Coco Loco JULEP - So Plush Ultra Hydrating Lip Gloss -Polished I ran out of my NYX - Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray !!!! As you can see I used bullet points to emphasize the concealers I used and yeah, lol it’s four of them. I know to some it may seem like a lot but I honestly feel like I need it! Especially where my hyperpigmentation is and my under eye darkness. I’m working on my skincare routine to start from root and I’ve seen progress but it’s taking time. Tbh, these mask and being incredibly stressed have done quite a number on my skin. The BLACK RADIANCE - True Complexion CC Palette is used when I am looking for the finest detail on my face and I want an even complexion everywhere. I am usually doing a full coverage routine if I use this palette. My red tinted concealer from L.A. Girl is great for my dark marks and under the eye as well as going on top of my damn mustache (threading appointment soon, believe me). I use the other L.A. Girl concealer and my MAC concealer for highlighting. I love using them both for the pretty, light and lifted effect it gives for my eyes. I’m still working on application but I definitely see a difference when I use both. Absolutely any tips and suggestions and feedback are incredibly appreciated. Thank you!
Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50
Recently I read somewhere that putting sunscreen on your face every day should be as much of a habit as brushing your teeth. I couldn’t agree more! Wearing sunscreen year round on your face is going to make a huge difference in how your skin ages and even more importantly it’s going to prevent skin cancer. While it is a very important part of a skin care routine, it can be hard to figure out how to incorporate it daily. You also don’t want to wear a sunscreen on your face that feels greasy or makes you breakout. My solution to these problems was finding a great moisturizer that contained a high spf and could be used easily every day and in all seasons. A few years ago, I found dermalogica - Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 Moisturizer and I have used it every single day since. It doesn’t make me breakout and it’s super moisturizing. It’s medium weight so it’s heavy enough for winter skin but also works great in the summer (if you get greasy in the summer, a translucent powder works great with this!) Why you’re going to love this: ￼￼￼It helps improve skin while you’re wearing it with ingredients like antioxidant white tea, polyphenols, and polypeptides ￼￼￼Protects against both UVA and UVB rays (so important!) ￼￼￼Great for sensitive skin ￼￼￼Perfect for wearing under makeup ￼￼￼High SPF, your skin will thank you later!
My Morning Routine ☀️
VICHY - Pureté Thermale One Step Face Cleanser for Sensitive Skin This is the perfect AM cleanser for anyone with sensitive skin. Its a cleansing milk, it tones and removes eye makeup. It’s extremely gentle and hydrating and perfect to start off the morning without stripping the skin. Murad - Essential-C Toner My Cleanser already does the toning but if I feel like my skin is looking dull, I’ll add this in. It has Antioxidants and Amino acids that brighten my skin. Murad - Hydro-Dynamic Quenching Essence I’ve been using this essence for years. It’s extremely hydrating, And anti aging. It contains Glycolic acid for some resurfacing and essential oils. It makes my skin feel really smooth and supple. It’s lightweight and restores cell function to rejuvenate and plump skin while exfoliating the impurities, dirt, and oil that cause dullness and uneven tone. SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum I love the serum, I do have sensitive skin and some forms of Vitamin C can be irritating but not this one. It contains 15% THD Ascorbate Vitamin C, it’s brightening, clarifying, and has antioxidant properties. It also helps fight the first signs of aging caused by stress, lifestyle, sun, and pollution. It definitely has brightened my skin and made my skin tone more even. biopelle - Dark Circle Relief Cream 1 Percent Vitamin K Oxide I have the type of dark circles that are a blueish hue due to my veins being visible because I’m so fair. Vitamin K is an ingredient that helps blood clot, so it also helps blood vessels less visible. Aveeno - Absolutely Ageless Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 I’ve always preferred moisturizers with SPF, as opposed to using two separate products and Aveeno has always been a non irritating for me. The Absolutely Ageless contains antioxidants that help stimulate collagen and firm the skin and fights free radical Damage. It also won Allures Best of beauty Award. dermalogica - Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 Moisturizer I switch between this and Aveenos SPF moisturizer. I recently got a small sample of this and wanted to try it out due to all the great reviews. It has Peptides, Antioxidants, Amino acids and fights off Free Radical Damage. It also has a lighter texture than Aveeno which I like for Summer. NATURE'S BOUNTY - Optimal Solutions Hair, Skin and Nails Gummies I use the Advanced version with 2x the Biotin. I definitely see a difference in my nails the most, they’re usually brittle and break very easily, but when I take these they’re much stronger. My hair also seems healthy and shiner. (Not in the pic) I also try to keep my skin products in the boxes to prevent oxidation.

This is probably the lightest makeup I ever do, it’s pretty much a quick 10 minute beat that makes my skin look plum and clear with zero foundation 🔥 I have some acne marks that tend to get pretty dark before they fade (thanks melanin), so I try to spot conceal on my lighter makeup days to avoid looking a mess after a few hours lol. This look with the addition of freckles gives me a glowy, plump look all day, I do have to blot after a while but luckily no shift in the concealer at all thanks to the addition of the Urban Decay Powder Foundation 😍 The power trio for my quick base routine: Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Moisturizer DOSE OF COLORS - Meet Your Hue Concealer URBAN DECAY - Stay Naked The Fix Powder Foundation Freckles: Lime Crime - Freckle Pen

NudeStix Tinted Cover Foundation in 02
NUDESTIX - Tinted Cover Foundation This is one of the most natural foundations I’ve ever tried. It has quite a bit more coverage than the Glossier Skin Tint, so I like to wear this on stage or if I’m having a bad skin day. It has a nice cooling feeling when I put it on and can be used with a brush, beauty blender, or fingers. I like to spread it out with my fingers and then go over it with a beauty blender to make sure it’s all blended properly. It’s a really nice dewy formula, and I like it a lot better than their Nudies Tinted Blur Stick. I tried that one, and if you have normal skin it might work, but if you have dry skin it’ll stick to your dry patches or if you have very oily skin it’ll separate. You need a specific skin type to make that work. Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of that one as it’s been a whiiiiiile since I’ve had it. NUDESTIX - Nudies Tinted Blur Stick

My secret to achieving a flawless base
Achieving a flawless and perfect base is the most important process in making-up. I have oily t-zone while the rest of my face is very dry and sensitive. Sometimes there is patchiness around my t-zone, crack and dry patches appear on the rest of the skin. Under this circumstance, I have a secret way to achieve a perfect base that can last all night long. Keeping good skin condition is the best way to create a perfect base. So, good skin preparation is the key to great makeup. Usually, I use the PETER THOMAS ROTH’s Hungarian Thermal Water Mineral-Rich Moisturizer to get my skin prepped and primed. This is the most hydrated and moisturized moisturizer I have ever used. my face becomes so smooth and gentle. When applying foundation on my face, I can feel my face like silk and there is no crack at all. The foundation can better adhere to the face and can last longer. When applying foundation, I usually avoid putting a thick layer of the foundation. It is difficult to blend thick foundation and then there will have cracks on the skin. In order to smoothly blend the foundation, I wet the beauty blender. The damp surface brings more streak-free blending. Because of the dry skin, I also choose a hydrating foundation. I recommend Laura Mercier’s foundation. The brand is famous for its ability to create a ‘flawless face’. The lightweight long-lasting liquid foundation with a matter finish is oil-free. It is creamy and wears beautifully throughout the day. Sometimes I use Laura Mercier’s concealer to cover my imperfections. I apply a layer of a litter concealer over the skin as needed and blend.The last process is to fix all the work firmly on my face. I apply Translucent loose Setting Powder all over my face. It can control the oil around my t-zone and allow longer-lasting of my makeup.

Moisturizer with spf
NARS - Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 My favorite of all time tinted moisturizer. I use this product practically every chance I get. It has spf 30 sunscreen. It gives me a nice radiant natural makeup look while protecting my skin from the sun. It has a nice light creamy texture which once applied feels super lightweight and barely noticeable. It helps cover some of my redness around my cheek area and a nice even skin tone . As you can tell from this packaging in the picture that I have often used it and it’s on the ends of its days. Definitely will be repurchasing and I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants that all natural everyday makeup look and keep their skin well protected.

Product review time!!! Full look on my page!!!
tarte - Lele Pons x Tarte Eye & Cheek Palette love this palette!!! Got it for Christmas and just now using it but it’s amazing. Colors apply well and I love the blush and highlighter too!! e.l.f. - Matte Magic Mist & Set honey this makeup is set in place!!! Definitely a dupe for Urban Decays all nighter setting spray for me!! e.l.f. - Poreless Face Primer feels great on the skin and smells amazing but it’s not very sticky which I look for in a primer. I feel like it was harder to apply my foundation on top of I had to apply a few layers before I was satisfied. COVERGIRL - TruBlend Undercover Concealer I used the shade M400 warm nude. It blended well with my foundation. Didn’t get rid of my dark circles though 😩 maybe I need to apply more? wet n wild - Photo Focus Dewy Foundation I tried caramel at first, waaaay too dark for me bust desert beige matched my skin perfectly. It went on nicely with a beauty blender and it’s buildable. It did what I wanted to which was cover up the redness on my face and it’s not heavy at all it barely feels like I have makeup on. However, I noticed you could see some of my dry patches on my face but I just applied a little more and it covered well too. It moved slightly when I was apply the powder but that was an easy fix as well. Overall I think I’ll be using it until I find something better. wet n wild - Photo Focus Loose Setting Powder love this powder!!! I used the translucent one because I felt the banana shade would be too dark. It didn’t make me look white or powdery like other translucent powders I’ve used in the past. Hopefully it keeps the oil calm in my t-zone!! 🤞🏽 MORPHE - Eye Got This Brush Set I received this in my boxy charm and I see why most MUAs use these brushes they’re absolutely amazing!! Makes me wanna replace all my brushes for Morphe!! Love love love love love!!!! 🥰😍 GLAMGLOW - MOISTURETRIP Omega-Rich Face Moisturizer I got this item in my boxy charm as well and I wouldn’t usually purchase a $54 skin care product on my own but I’m sold. It soothes my face calms down the redness and isn’t super heavy. You don’t to use a whole lot for this product to do it’s job. CLARINS - Velvet Lip Perfector it applies well, doesn’t run and is pretty much kiss proof. The color is very bold as well!!! ROCKINS - Big Fat Liner Black I’m VERY sketchy about velvet tip liquid eyeliners but this ones got me hooked. I usually use sex kitten by tarte and this one applies the same if not better. I only applied it once and lemme tell ya it’s BLACK!!! I look forward to using it to attempt my perfection at a winged liner.

My go-to makeup base
It’s 95 F in Texas and I have oily skin. Do you know what that means? If I am going to wear makeup, then I need to moisturize, then mattify or the oil on my skin will eat my makeup like a contestant in a hotdog eating competition. With deep complexion and oily skin, I focus on keeping my oil at bay, concealing hyperpigmentation and smoothing my pores. I try to work with small amounts of product and build upon it to avoid looking like a cake face. I find that my makeup looks better when I do that and lasts longer. Tools: • NYX - Pro Brush 03 Multi Purpose Bufferingis the brush I recommend. (I wasn’t able to use it in the video because mine has just been washed.) In the video, I used a flat-top kabuki brush in its stead. • e.l.f. - e.l.f. Contouring Brush: I love this brush for contouring. • Undereye brush. I recommend e.l.f. - Flawless Concealer Brush Here’s what I used (in order of appearance): • Primers: boscia - Porefecting White Charcoal Mattifying Treatment Primer(formulated for oily skin with larger pores) and REVLON - Photoready Prime Plus Brightening & Skin Tone Evening Primer* • Foundation:laura mercier - Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundationin Ganache* • Concealers: Neutrogena - New Healthy Skin Radiant Cream Concealerin Java Deep 2 and (not pictured) MAYBELLINE - Instant Anti Age Eraser Concealerin Tan and Medium. • Contour: URBAN DECAY - Stay Naked Correcting Concealerin 90NN* • Powders: SEPHORA COLLECTION - MicroSmooth Baked Foundation Face Powderin Deep, LAURA GELLER - Baked Balance-n-Brighten(not pictured) and Sleek - Face Contour Kitin Dark 886 • Setting spray: Supergoop! - Holly x Supergoop!Defense Refresh (Re)Setting Mist SPF 40is a spray that I usually use because sunscreen is important. The only thing that I don’t like is the minty smell. (not pictured) * products sent to me to review #CheriePartner
