My well-loved drugstore makeup essentials
These are the drugstore makeup picks I ACTUALLY use! Don’t get me wrong, I love a good Tarte Shapetape Concealer. Even the latest launches from Rare Beauty have me swooning. But drugstore makeup holds a special place in my heart. Walking through the aisles of Target or CVS gets me giddy. Quite honestly, I count those trips as my therapy sessions. Plus, these are the places were I started getting essentials to experiment with when I was younger! My favorite brands to score from are no doubt Pixi, NYX, Essence Cosmetics, Sonia Kashuk, Maybelline and Covergirl. They’re just my go-to’s! They’re the brands constantly putting out dupes for cult favorites. Everything in this picture, I use on a daily basis. I’ve been going through Maybelline Lifter Glosses like they’re going out of style. I actually was responsible for my local Target running out of stock once...oops. Another new essential that’s crawled its way into my everyday routine is the Covergirl Cooling Glow Stick. It’s part of their new Clean Fresh line and I use it on my WHOLE face. Top tip: try it under your eyes over your concealer 👀 I’m still in search for the perfect drugstore CC cream, does anyone have any good recommendations?
BeccaBoucherNot a CC Cream recommendation but the ELF hydrating camo concealer is incredible

FACE MAKEUP - JUST CREAM PRODUCTS
hi friends! i thought it’d be fun to show you guys how i usually apply my face makeup. i tend to order things by doing it all in cream first (i.e. foundation and concealer, then blush, highlight, bronzer), then redefining it all by going in with powder. today though, i used only cream/stick products and finished with a translucent powder. for this look, i start with the e.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer in a lighter and darker shade to give cream contouring a try, as i normally use a powder contour/bronzer and save this step for the end. i place the darker shade slightly higher than my normal cheekbones then blend the darker shade before the lighter one to help warm up my entire complexion a little better (as i am severely pale). i then follow this with a cream blush and highlighter. i place both products slightly higher on the face than normal to try to bring more balance to the face as well as emphasize my cheekbones a little better. i use the Milk MAKEUP - Lip + Cheek in “werk” and COVERGIRL - Clean Fresh Cooling Glow Highlighter Stick in “so gilty”. i do all of these steps with a damp sponge but i would advise trying to use different parts of the sponge or two different sponges entirely if you fear accidentally making it look muddy. with this particular look, i end up simply setting my whole face with a translucent powder, as i want the eyes and lips to be the main focus. if you are seeking a more defined and chiseled look, i would definitely recommending following up with powder highlighter, blush, or contour. hope you guys enjoyed! feel free to follow here and on my IG @chloebrk.mua #cheriecreator

My favorite lip gloss
I’ve never been a huge fan of lip gloss. I don’t enjoy the sticky feeling or heavy fragrance that is usually associated with them. And then I tried MAYBELLINE - Lifter Gloss With Hyaluronic Acid and fell in love! I actually have two other shades but they live in my car. This gloss is not sticky or heavy and it looks so nice on. I love the slight tingling sensation it causes as well. If you haven’t given this a try yet, what are you waiting for?!
My husband won’t kiss me anymore
He has an aversion to the texture and taste of lip gloss and lipstick. Not only that but he watched me walk up to a “trending” display of a major brand instead of the yellow tag clearance and pick out a fancifully packaged gloss. To his credit, he helped me choose a shade (Silk). But he really doesn’t know who I am anymore and so has thus been suspicious of me when I wear this. Nevertheless... This was trending months ago but like many people I have been a little flabbergasted by this year’s unwavering and speedy trajectory into the spiral vortex of suck. So I had to wait til the Hype Train made its second round to hop on. A few things: if you are the type who wants your lips to look like you’ve had work done or you’re cosplaying as Fungus from Monsters, Inc. you may not be satisfied with the plumping effect of this stuff. Honestly the most natural route is to just cut open a jalapeño and smear that on your lips. Then your husband really won’t kiss you. Frankly, I don’t like scrubbing or irritating my lips into perkiness the same way I don’t want coffee overdosing to make me a more cheerful person before 10am. This stuff is called lifter and it lifts. My lips are more plump than before and there’s no stinging to get them there. Additionally there is a mild but pleasant cinnamon flavor, not like a cinnamon gum harshness but a gentle apple pie type of cinnamon. It’s actually very pleasant. Speaking of coffee, that stuff makes my lips drier than a mummy’s armpit before I can finish a single cup, and trust me — I teach how to use commas to twelve-year-olds, so when I say this product actually kept my lips hydrated through my morning video lessons, it’s a miracle. Overall, for $7 this stuff is awesome and I’m definitely buying more once my other glosses are done for. I may never be kissed again but man are my lips soft. .

Amazing eyeliner by Tarte !!!!
tarte - Tartist Double Take Eyeliner Having tried quite a bit of eyeliners in the past, this eyeliner by Tarte is easy to handle, and glides easily, depositing a deep dark black color without having to retrace it. Since it also has a liquid side and a pencil side, the pencil allows to fill in smaller gaps that one could’ve missed while doing their eyeliner routine. Overall, I would give this product a solid 4 stars and not five simply because the liquid felt brush area is a little too thick for my liking. But even then, having worn this eyeliner for a full day’s party, or other special occasions, even if you sweat or if you accidentally rub your eye a bit, it does not run at all and stays practically intact. Would recommend this product for sure, it is one of my favorite eyeliners.

topshopbeauty products The liquid highlighter in shade Misty is beautiful for cool and light skin tones (it comes in 3 colours), the formula is gorgeous, the finish is velvety, but not sticky. I would say this is similar to ctilbury Flawless Filter. I love to mix mine with foundation, moisturiser or CC/BB when I want some extra glow (or did not sleep enough). Can be used in either of these combinations, under or on top of foundation (i.e cheek bones, nose bridge, etc). The Eye Pencil in shade Treasured is waterproof and dries to a smudge proof finish. I think this colour really complements my brown eyes. True story: after taking this pic (obv wearing a white shirt), I quickly wanted to wipe it off. Guess what? No chance 💪🏻 I had to wash it with water and soap. So very impressed.
Zoom Wedding Makeup!
as i posed recently, one of my girls was getting married! here’s my makeup look to zoom in and be a virtual bridesmaid 🥰🥰 i started with the NYX - Hi Definition Photo Concealer Wand this stuff is great as long as you set it! then, i moved on to the NYX - Bare With Me Tinted Skin Veil which is so good as a light foundation! e.l.f. - 50 Color Eye & Face Palette i used the contour out of this palette and a light gray to blend into the colors i already had on my eye.... URBAN DECAY - URBAN DECAY Single Eyeshadow this is my favorite eyeshadow of all time. even when i was bad at makeup, this looked good. Too Faced - Tutti Frutti Fruit Cocktail Blush Duo i broke this unfortunately and had to blend the colors together. it’s still a shimmery flush that i don’t even have to use highlighter with ❤️ pixi - Brow Tamer the best to tame my crazy brows

How I create a natural, even lip line!
I love a nude lip! And it’s even better when I can use just a small amount of product and make them look nice and full! I start by marking sure my lips are smooth. A few nights a week, I gently take a wash cloth and rub it over my lips in circular motions. Then I make sure to apply some lip balm before I go to sleep. I like the the fresh - Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment but it’s super expensive. I also love the LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask , it’s cheaper and I think you get more product! When I’m finished with my makeup the next day, I’ll highlight my Cupid’s bow. I use the laura mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder I enjoy this setting powder, but I only use it as a highlight. It’s WAY too sparkly and glowy to use all over the face as a setting powder. Then I’ll use the MAKE UP FOR EVER - Artist Color Pencil: Eye, Lip & Brow Pencil in Wherever Walnut to draw my lip line. I’ll draw it just a small distance outside my natural lip line and fill in the outer 25% of my lips as well. This pencil is a nice browny nude for my light skin tone. Next, I will as just a touch of lipstick. I won’t swipe this on, I’ll lightly dab it on my lips so we still see the effects of the lip liner. I use the MARC JACOBS BEAUTY - Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick in Slow Burn which is also a browny nude. Finally, I’ll top it off with a bit of lip gloss just in the center of the lip. I’ve been really enjoying the FLOSS GLOSS - Floss beauty my new favorite lip gloss it’s clear, goes with any lip color, and smells and tastes like sweet vanilla! #cheriepartner
MAKE UP FOR EVER-Artist Color Pencil: Eye, Lip & Brow Pencil
I love a good natural, dewy, almost sweaty sheen on the skin and I feel you wouldn’t expect a powder highlight to give you that dewy effect but trust me, the essence - Pure Nude Highlighter is such a gorgeous highlighter! It’s not an intense highlighter that you’ll catch from across a room, it’s definitely more subtle but still beautiful. You can make it more intense by applying it with your fingers but I like to use a fluffy highlighter brush and let it melt into my skin. It’s definitely one of my favorite highlighters not just from the drugstore but of all time 💘
