FENTY BEAUTY AMBER V.S. MAC omega
FENTY BEAUTY AMBER and MAC omega are my favorite shade products. I can say that I use them every day. The color of these two are quite similar and they are both so matched with my skin color. I believe that those people who are medium-tan or tan skin tones with neutral undertones would definitely love them. FENTY BEAUTY AMBER: Although the texture of FENTY BEAUTY AMBER is paste, it is so hydrated and smooth when I apply it on my cheek. I can still remember that I was a little bit worried at the first using time because it seems thick and it may make my makeup look dirty. However, I was quite excited since it shapes my face naturally. There is a tip to make it work with the whole makeup, that is, using a powder puff dipped in water to pat this shade. You will find it lifts your face immediately. MAC omega: Unlike FENTY BEAUTY AMBER, the texture of MAC omega is powder. It is no exaggeration to say that MAC omega is the best shade I have ever bought. Although it is designed for eye shadow, it is really suitable for nose shade. It is so fantastic since it can make my features look outstanding immediately. I have persuaded all my dear friends to buy MAC omega and I strongly recommend everyone to try this one. According to amazon, the price of FENTY BEAUTY AMBER is $25.00 for 0.25oz while the price of MAC omega is $22.07 for 0.05oz. Despite of the fact that MAC seems more expensive than FENTY BEAUTY, I prefer MAC omega since it is more functional. Please buy it, you would never regret.

Audrey3545Loved it! I think even though I’m a pale face the omega shade would work for a bunch of different dupes!

Old Hollywood Vintage Makeup 🎞 📽🖤
Hey Cherie Sisters! Happy Friday Eve! ⚠️ First of all, I just want to say that I DO NOT condone smoking at all ⛔️ 🚬 🚫 ⚠️ I just used it as a prop because cigarettes are always seen in old Hollywood films and I wanted to add an extra oomph to the theme. 😜 I looked at “60s makeup” for inspiration. The 60s eye makeup emphasized the crease with dramatic winged liner and huge eyelashes. They stuck to neutral colors on the eyes and pair it with a peach or light pink lips. The beauty mark that Marilyn Monroe had was also popular. I used my MAC eyeshadows for this look because was feeling nostalgic. MAC eyeshadows were my favorite. I remember that I only bought MAC eyeshadows and used them religiously. Using them again reminded me of how pristine MAC eyeshadows are. They were so pigmented, easy to work with and blended beautifully. I seriously fell in love all over again. To achieve this look, I used: 1) MAC Embark which is an intense reddish-brown shade to define the crease. I used a smudger brush (Morphe M508) 2) I stamped MAC Soft Brown on top of Embark for that transition look. 3) Using my Wayne Goss 20 brush, I blended both colors together 4) I cut my crease using Tarte Shape tape then applied MAC Dazzlelight and Nylon on the lids 5) I used an angled eyeliner brush and a gel liner to draw a dramatic wing. I would suggest gel liner over liquid for more precision and drama 6) I applied MAC Soft Brown and Embark on the lower lash. 7) Use a white eyeliner to tight line. I used Colourpop Creme Gel Liner in Exit then use MAC Gesso (matte white eyeshadow) to intensify 8) Emphasize those lashes with falsies! I used House of Lashes in the style Bouidoir Lite 9) Apply lots of mascara on the bottom lash. Use falsies for bottom lashes to emphasize the look however, this step is optional 10) Channel your inner Marilyn Monroe and add that beauty marked. 11) For lips, I used KVD Vegan Beauty Liquid Lipstick in Lovecraft then topped it with Marc Jacobs Enamored Gloss in the shade Rah Rah!. A bold red lip would work too! 12) Enjoy! I hope you recreate this look and would love to see your finished look! 🤞 What is your favorite makeup era? Francesca 💋 #CheriePartner
5 min eye look to make your eyes pop!
Bring out your eye color and make your eyes the center of attention with two products! My eyes are my favorite feature and I love to make them pop even more and make them the focus of my makeup look. I have light brown eyes with a bit of a hazel in them (thx mom and dad) and pairing the correct eyeshadow color can really make them pop! WHAT I USE: A burnt brown shadow. Something orange/red based to bring the green out in my eyes. My go to is Brownscript from MAC. I take a fluffy blending brush and blend the shadow all over my lid. Very simple and quick. MAC - MAC Matte Eyeshadow To further make eyes pop and make my eyes appear bigger, I take a white or nude color eyeliner and line my bottom water line. This instantly draws even more attention to my eyes. If you want a more dramatic look then stick with the white, but to keep it more subtle stick with a nude color liner. I like to use the fenty pencil eyeliner. FENTY BEAUTY - Flypencil Longwear Pencil Eyeliner What if you don’t have brown eyes? Blue eyes - orange based browns and orange shadows! Green eyes - red tone shadows! Hazel eyes - red based browns! #cheriecreator

Love Rihanna Love Fenty Beauty!🤣
The brand Fenty beauty created by Rihanna. So this brand got a lot of attention when it is released. From my view, fenty beauty has a medium high performance during the same level brand. Their popular product is diamond highlight, which has fine powder, large and shiny particles. I bought one but lost it. I am going to show you some other products, which one of them has similar to the popular diamond highlight. The first is sponge egg. Wet it before using can bring you a better makeup effect. I use this egg whatever for the primer or foundation. Its shape is different from that of other sponge eggs. It's not a standard egg description. The sharp side has a special design. It's easier for us to cover all parts on our face. Very soft and smooth feeling when it is applied on your face. FENTY BEAUTY - Precision Makeup Sponge 100 The second pink diamond blush highlight is actually the pink version of the popular diamond highlights. It can be Painted on the face as a blush as well as a high gloss, very convenient. And Daily necessities. However, I have to show one another product from fenty beauty. It is also an highlight, with purple color. But…the performane is really bad. If the powder pink highlight has four stars, this highlight stick only can got 2. Yes…the color is very pretty. It presents the purple luster with colorful glitter. However, that makes no sense! Because it is so hard to apply on your face. Every time when I try to wear it, it will make my foundation got mess. FENTY BEAUTY - Match Stix Matte Skinstick FENTY BEAUTY - Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter So when you shop in the future, don't just look at the packaging and just try them on your hand. Because sometimes even if it looks good on your hands, it is not necessarily practical!

My favorite contours! Powder or Solid?
Here, I got two contour-s to share with you gals. These two are definitely my holy grails contour. I don’t think I will buy any other contours any more. ⭐️Powder! MAC Matte Eyeshadow #Omega $17 This one is meant to be an eyeshadow, but I used it as a contour. It’s a matte texture, so it’s okay to be a contour. I love the color of it, it’s warm greyish brown, that perfect fix with my skin tone. Forget to mention, I have light skin tone. The normal contour always goes with goldish brown color, which shades is kinda dark, and tent to make my make-up look looks dirty. It has fine powder and easy to apply, and won’t cake my makeup. See color swatches on the 2nd pic, it’s pigmented and the color just perfect match my skin tone. ⭐️Solid! Fenty Beauty Match Stix Matte Skinstick #Amber $24 Fenty Beauty contour is stick applicator, which is quite unique- magnetized, but I only got one stick that could not try this fun function. Amber Skinsticks would not dry out my skin, the coconut oil ingredient brings hydration. It’s buildable without cakey, and easy to apply. The color is close to Mac #Omega, but a bit darker and warmer than it. I use it before applying foundation, that could make the contour looks more natural. Need to notice that, if apply the Stick after setting powder, makeup will be caked. I love both of them. I think the both texture work great! The Mac one is more easy to apply and won’t have any risk of cakey. The Fenty Beauty one is a good choice for Pro beauty lover.

MILANI Blossomtime Rose VS. NARS Orgasm 🥊
I’m nervous as I write this post - I beg you cult beauty gurus : do not come for me! I promise not to speak your blush queen known as “NARS Orgasm”’s name in vain...hear me out for just a second 😅🔥 So, I love NARS blush as much as any blush-enthusiast but I’ve discovered that they can look overly pigmented on my skin tone in natural lighting. When I got my own office with a giant window ☀️, as I was checking to see if there was still some lunch in my teeth, I noticed that my blush was BLINDING 😎 in the mirror. I adoooore this blush but in natural light it looked barbie pink and glittery and all kinds of unattractive on my cheeks. It looks lovely in just about any other situation (parties, low light) but in the middle of the day, while I’m meeting with coworkers I’ve come to realize that it can be too much of a good thing. So I wanted to find something with the same shade properties as the NARS blush but maybe slightly less pigmented so that it doesn’t look so harsh on me in natural lighting. And what is peachy-pink, creamy and has just enough gold sheen all over? MILANI - Rose Powder Blush in “Blossomtime Rose”! This MILANI blush isn’t exactly a “dupe” for NARS orgasm but actually it is better looking because it pulls peach rather than pink on my light skin tone which is way more natural. It gives me that same gold sheen that I want on my cheeks but in a formula that’s a little more approachable in natural lighting. The best part about it is it lasts throughout the day! 10 hours of wear! And my NARS blush doesn’t do that. It also goes without saying that the MILANI one is $14CAD VS. $48CAD and saving a little nugget 💰 never hurt nobody. If you’re looking for something LIKE the NARS Orgasm blush but a little less intense and a lot less expensive, I would definitely give the MILANI one a try. It doesn’t skimp on the wear and it’s almost exactly the same shade profile just more natural. This way you can keep your NARS for a low-lit, full glam occasion 💄 and still have something similar to wear that is daylight-friendly.

BATTLE OF THE BRONZERS
Calling all pale bitches!!! Both of these bronzers are some of the best and most hyped of the moment. For me my Irish genetics give me plenty of freckles but definitely not enough of a tan to look alive and healthy. Bronzer has always been a surefire way to add the perfect amount of glow in the right spots to give the illusion of a sun kissed appearance. When I buy a bronzer I look for a few crucial factohhrs like the tone and color of the bronzer, formulation, wear time, ease of application, and overall natural looking appearance. This summer I was on the hunt for that perfect bronze and I picked up these two great options one from the amazing Marc Jacobs beauty and the other a new bronzer from Charlotte Tilbury. The Marc Jacobs O!Mega Bronzer in the shade 104 Tan-Tastic retails for $49 and gives you .8oz/ 25g of product, while the Charlotte Tilbury Aurbrush Matte bronzer retails for $55 and gives you .56oz/ 16g of product. So right off the bat you’re getting more product for your buck with the Marc Jacobs bronzer, but how do they compare? Charlotte’s bronzer has hydrating Hyaluronic acid infused in the powder for a more hydrated feel, however I don’t really see how that’s practical in a pressed powder and when using the bronzer I didn’t feel any more or less hydrated. Marc Jacobs’s bronzer doesn’t have any special ingredients but I don’t think it really makes a big difference. What I care about is how they perform and look on the skin. I’ve found that Charlotte’s bronzer has less color pay-off when compared to Marc’s. I’d say the pay off on both is light and buildable but I find I don’t have to use as much product with Marc’s bronzer, for me this is a plus because I don’t have to spend as much time trying to build up the color. I’ve also noticed that on my skin Charlotte’s bronzer has a more patchy appearance, especially if I’m building up the color and I have to add some more in some spots, it doesn’t grab to the skin quite as well as Marc’s bronzer which I’ve found gives a more seamless build and blend. Now for color I personally use the medium shade in both brand’s products. Charlotte’s bronzer has more of a warm orange tone and Marc’s Is a bit cooler and browner. I think Marc’s bronzer gives me the warmth I need but also the shape and definition necessary to contour my face while with Charlotte’s I need to add contour on top of the bronzer to add definition to the face. In terms of staying power they’re both pretty equal, I didn’t find I needed to reapply product through the day with either. That being said the overall finish of the Marc Jacobs bronzer was more natural and seamless looking. In conclusion you’re getting a better product from the Marc Jacobs O!Mega bronzer, in terms of color, finish, price, and amount of product, in my opinion. Both are great but in the battle of the bronzers Marc Jacobs is the winner!

What Products Have I Hit Pan?!
Compact Setting Powder - Milani Shine-Proof Powder (shade# 04 Natural) This Milani compact setting powder has good oil control and gives a good soft focus finish. It also offers sheer coverage. It provides a longer-lasting look and doesn't rub off. Bronzer - No 7 Bronzer (shade# Maple): No7 Bronzer (Maple) creates a natural look. Since it's not glossy, it can also be used for contouring. It comes with a good amount and the powder doesn't fly everywhere. I used it every day for work and it still took me 11 months to touch the casing. Brow Powder - Urban Decay Brow Box (shade# Brown Sugar): This is the older version Urban Decay eyebrow powder box. On the first layer are two shades of eyebrow powder and a setting wax; on the second layer you see two eyebrow brushes and a pair of tweezers. What I like about it is how refined its powder is and how convenient it is to use. However, it's not easy to carry around. The new packaging has improved on this though, and it's now a lot more compact.
Peachy Blush Dream
This blush by Milani is touted as a holy grail by Nikkie Tutorials herself among many others! After years of hearing people praise the brand's baked blushes, I decided to try Luminoso out. First of all, this formula is quite sheer. I was expecting more punch. Might've been the fluffy brush I was using? It looked okay, but it took a decent amount of building and blending before it truly showed up on my fair skin. It has a slight glow though nothing like I hoped. It's a pretty coraly-peach and it will for sure last a long time usage wise but I'm not in love. Hopefully I can hit pan on this and I'll like it more.
