An Okay Palette 🤷🏾♂️
The Elf Cosmetics bite size palette - Açaí You - is great for simple eye looks. However, it fails when it comes to the pigment & colors of the palette. Two of the deeper colors don’t show as well as the two lighter colors. The pigment just isn’t there. The deepness. The richness of the darker colors are literally lost. I love the bright periwinkle color though. Beautiful color. e.l.f. - Bite Size Eyeshadow Palette
Love this palette
This cute lil palette is only 3$ and packs a punch ,definitely worth that and more . Highly pigmented and blends like a dream e.l.f. - Bite Size Eyeshadow Palette
4 steps to make green / hazel eyes POP! 👊🏻
Only 2% of the world’s population has green eyes 👀! I mean actually green eyes - looking at you, hazel folks 😉 But this works for all shades of green/hazel and maybe even light brown eyes. This is the "are those your real eyes or colour contacts?" routine. This one’s for you, you beautiful 2%! Step 1: take a small fluffy brush and lightly swipe bronzer into your eyelid crease. I use MAYBELLINE - City Bronzer but any bronzer works great as long as it’s a nice shade match and its MATTE - very important. I like benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzing Powder in LIGHT as well. You want to do just 1-3 swipes of the area, lightly. Just looking to bring some depth to the eyelid. Step 2: line the outer half of your top eyelid ONLY with a BROWN/DARK AUBERGINE creamy pencil eyeliner. You want the liner to act like a shadow to your lash line so be very thin with the line and as close as possible to your lash line. This will also make your lashes look thicker and your eyes look rounded. I love LAURA GELLER - Inkcredible Waterproof Gel Eyeliner Pencil in brown but I also use L'ORÉAL - Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in brown or dark aubergine. Step 3: curl lashes and apply 1 coat of your favorite black/brown mascara. Let it dry. (!) You can skip this step. I have very difficult straight lashes and any plum mascara I’ve tried just doesn’t keep a curl or cut it for me so I "prime" my lashes with my favorite black mascara first (!). Then Apply 1 coat of dark PLUM/BURGUNDY mascara over that. Everyone thinks its going to be obvious but the plum doesn’t actually stand out, it’s more of a reflect. I love benefit - Badgal Lash Mascara in PLUM or L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Original Volume Building Mascara in DARK BURGUNDY. Step 4: with a waterproof matte liquid liner in BLACK, tight-line your top waterline. This closes the gap between your eye and the brown liner on the top of the eyelid and makes your lash line look THICC. I havent met one better than MILANI - Stay Put Matte Liquid Eyeliner It is 100% waterproof and transferproof which is important when its going in a waterline. LET IT DRY ⏰ before moving on to Step 5 (optional). Step 5: (optional but worth it) using a waterproof pencil liner in a flesh or cream colour, tight line the bottom waterline. This makes the whole white of your eye look brighter and ties in the look. I loove REVLON - Colorstay Micro Hyper Precision Gel Eyeliner in colour BEIGE. It’s the perfect fair/light skin tone nude colour.

RIMMEL - Magnif'eyes Eyeshadow Palette . If you use this eyeshadow on its own the colour is not very good but if you use it over concealer the colour looks very bright and 👍 COVERGIRL - Exhibitionist Metallic Lipstick I love this lipstick 💄 L'ORÉAL - Infallible 24H-Matte Mattifying Foundation I love this foundation and I use a little darker shade to get a bronzed look. MAYBELLINE - City Bronzer I love this bronzer. L'ORÉAL - True Match Blush I love to use this blush over my bronzer.

I have oily skin and about 20 foundations 🙃
right now these two are my favorites! They have a nice finish, keep my oil in check and last all day 🙌🏾 ok so the biggest difference for me is FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation is more matte. Like if I want virtually no shine I go with this! CLINIQUE - Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer has a more natural matte finish, so there's some shine but it looks like skin. The color match on this one is SUPER BOMB for me 🙌🏾 I use COVER FX - COVER FX Mattifying Primer , then COVER FX - COVER FX Matte Setting Powder and finish with MILANI - Make It Last Prime + Correct + Set Setting Spray with both of these and I'm good to go! What are your go to products for oily skin?
My HOLY GRAIL Drugstore Products 🥰
Hello beautiful! It’s definitely been a while since I posted and I miss you all much. Things have been hectic at work, but I’m back for now. I wanted to share my holy grail drug store products without breaking the bank even though it looks like you did 😉 ✨ MILANI MAKE IT LAST SETTING SPRAY $8.99 I used to spend $30+ for UD’s all nighter setting spray, but since I discovered this little gem, I don’t anymore. This makes your make up stay on and transfer proof. I even use this to spray my surgical masks to prevent make up transfer and it works! ✨MAYBELLINE CHROME MASTER $7.99 I love the shade in Molten Gold. This is amazing! It’s not glittery at all. It has a natural shiny finish and it’s comparable to my Becca highlighters. A little goes along way and you only need a tap for a full glow. ✨ELF PRIMER-INFUSED BRONZER $6.00 I have the shade in “perpetually tan”. This gives me a sun kissed glow all year round without looking too muddy. It’s buildable and the texture is the softest. It almost feels like silk. ✨MILANI BAKED BLUSH $9.49 I LOVE blushes. I own many high end ones as well, but these are comparable with some of my high end ones. I have been repurchasing this for years. I used Rose D’Oro and Luminoso religiously. Now I am obsessed with the shade Berry Amore. This gives me that perfect glowing from within look. I instantly look healthier when I apply these. It has a little sheen without looking too sparkly either. A must!! ✨COLOURPOP SUPER SHOCK CHEEK $8.00 This is my favorite cream blush. I apply this on the days I don’t wear foundation. It looks so natural. It’s so buildable and easily blendable. My favorite shade is “between the sheets”. I own almost all of the super shock cheeks, but I always go back to this! I have repurchased multiple times as well. I love the texture of this as well. It’s sooo soft! This can be used with a duo fibre brush or your fingers. ✨ELF BITE-SIZE SHADOWS $3.00 This one is a hit and miss, but the “truffles, pumpkin spice and cream & sugar” quads are great quality for the price. I suggest you stay away from the “rose water” quad however. That one was patchy and horrible, but the rest are amazing. I bring them with me whenever I travel. I hope you find these helpful! What’s your favorite drugstore product? Comment down below. Xoxo, Francesca 💋
My brows are unfortunately the product of the early 2000s; what was once full and lush are now not so great. I’ve been looking for a dupe for more expensive products. This was not it. I found it very hard to get much color on my brows, and it didn’t do great at holding my brows in place. So my search for a dupe continues.
Got some new goodies that I’m excited to try and some repurchases! essence - Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel MascaraReally inexpensive dupe for the Benefit Gimme Brow Gel. This is my 2nd one. DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil Great ingredients, I’m excited to try it! SheaMoisture - Coconut & Hibiscus Shea Butter Lip Balm Really thick and nourishing. I love that it’s not formulated with petrolatum! peach slices - Snail Rescue Blemish Busting TonerRecent find! I’m not usually a big fan of peach slices but their new Snail Rescue Toner has a great formula. miss spa - Bee Venom Facial Sheet Mask miss spa - Hemp Oil Hydrating Sheet Mask I mainly got these because they were on sale but great formulas. Can you believe this was $45!
Ready in 5 minutes!!!! 👀
Hey y’all!!! It’s been forever since I posted but I’m back!!!!!!🥰 Anyways this look was completely on accident. I usually just use an under eye cream to try and hide my dark circles from mostly lack of sleep. But today I used brow gel, concealer, bronzer, blush, and mascara to do a quick 5 minute look to brighten up my eyes since that’s what people only see!!! At first it was a disaster but blending is everything let me tell you!! Mask acne is killing my face right now so I left that part alone except for my daily moisturizer. Stay tuned for a video tonight because I’m going to turn my 5 minute look into a full natural look!!!!

Product breakdown ⬇️ 🍒 PRIMER: NYX - Pore Filler Primer Good primer, not oily, smooth and gave me a good base for my foundation. mini ($5) 🍒FOUNDATION: e.l.f. - Flawless Finish Foundation The bottle i picked up says “Flawless Satin Foundation” Not sure if they’re the same product, however this is possibly the best drugstore foundation I have ever used. It went on smoothly, great coverage and soo cheap! 10/10 recommended you pick this up! ($6) 🍒CONCEALER: e.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer This has been called a dupe for the Tarte shape tape but I think it’s even better. It’s lightweight, not thick with amazing coverage that hardly creases. I recommend the Hydrating version over the regular one. ($6) 🍒BLUSH: NYX - Sweet Cheeks Soft Cheek Tint I prefer cream blushes over powder and this is definitely my new favorite, absolutely love this formula!! It’s a whipped texture of blush that applies amazing, not blotchy or hard to blend at all!! In shade “Nude’Tude” ($9) 🍒POWDER: MAYBELLINE - Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder Possibly the best powder i’ve come across! I use this to set my whole face, didn’t get cakey or blotchy throughout the night! In shade “20 Light Medium” ($5) 🍒BRONZER: PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzer Good bronzer, doesn’t have the best color pay off but smells great and cute packaging. ($15) 🍒HIGHLIGHTER: IBYBEAUTY - Travel Size Radiant Glow Highlighter Cute little highlighter i received in my IPSY bag this month, not a glittery highlight more of a radiant glow which i like. Shade “24k Magic” ($8) 🍒BROWS: e.l.f. - Instant Lift Brow Pencil Came with a spoolie which i liked however the pencil is a bit dry and it took a lot of strokes to apply it. Shade “Neutral Brown” ($2) 🍒EYESHADOW: I actually just used the blush and bronzer for a quick and easy eyeshadow look, I forgot to pick up a palette 😅 🍒LIPS: NYX - Suede Matte Lip Liner Love the formula and the color pay off is amazing in the shade “London” ($3) topped with NYX - Butter Gloss In shade “Bit of honey” Best drugstore glosses hands down! 🙌 ($4) 🍒LASHES MAYBELLINE - Mascara Lash Sensational Not a huge fan of mascara but I really wanted to try this one, it’s good but i’ve used better ones!

My most natural makeup look
Hey guys hows it going? Sorry I haven't been active lately because of highschool. It's been stressful lol Anyway here's my most natural makeup look! I don't usually always wear makeup but on special occasions sometimes. So I used my elf primer, which really wasn't my favorite but it's the one I have and even though it's hydrating and it makes my skin soft, it just doesn't hold the makeup for long. I would still rate it 5 stars because it does make my skin soft and the texture is great. Next I used the powder foundation which is my go- to product because I have sensitive skin and this makes my skin feel flawless, smooth, and clear! (My skin is clear the only problem I have is just dryness) after that I use my travel sized Milani palette with the the first shade that is golden and blended it all the way to my brow bone., Ngl I am in love with this palette because the colors are pretty pigmented and pretty! Then I use this CoverGirl lash volume mascara which actually lifts up my lashes and makes them look thicker and longer. Then I blend my CoverGirl trublend super stunner highlighter palette just above my cheek bones, it really makes me feel glowy and it's my faborite! Finally I use my Broadway clear lipgloss, which actually is very hydrating and it locks moisture. And that's all! Have a great day luvs💖 e.l.f. - Hydrating Face Primer MAYBELLINE - SuperStay Full Coverage Powder Foundation MILANI - Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Palette COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Volume Waterproof Mascara COVERGIRL - TruBlend Super Stunner Highlight Palette BROADWAY - Vita-Lip Mint Oil lip Gloss
SUMMER 2020 RED LIP MAKEUP LOOK
Hey fam, here's a look that I never get sick of, especially for summer. I actually wore this exact look for my wedding last week 💍 It was perfect for the short ceremony at the city hall and formal enough for a nice dinner after. IMO you can never go wrong with simple eye makeup and a classic cool toner red lip! Here are the products I used: wet n wild - Photofocus Liquid Matte Foundation This is such a great affordable foundation that just works. I don't find it's very high coverage but that's exactly what I prefer. e.l.f. - Selfie Foundation Blurring Brush This makeup brush makes putting on foundation SO fast. It's actually converted me from makeup sponges back to brushes! URBAN DECAY - Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion Always makes eyeshadow last so much longer! NARS - Blush/Bronzer Duo I actually don't tend to use this as bronzer, but rather as eyeshadow. It's the perfectly slightly warm brown for a summery wash of colour over the eyelids. L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara This is the most impressed I've been with a Western drugstore mascara for a while! However I do find it does flake a little towards the end of the day. MAYBELLINE - Brow Ultra Slim Defining Eyebrow Pencil I like how thin this is, again it makes everything so quick and easy for a great brow. benefit - 24-Hour Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel It took me a while to learn how to use this for my brows! It's a great brow gel but honestly overpriced for what it is. MAC - Ruby Woo Lip Duo My favourite red lip, ever. My lipstick version is actually from the limited edition Collab that Rihanna did with MAC. the Balm cosmetics - Mary Lou Manizer Luminizer Highlighter i have had this for so long, you can see it's well loved! Its my favourite highlighter, perfect for my skin tone.

2020 Summer “Sweet Treats” Themed Makeup
For those of us who live in the Southern Hemisphere, Summer is just around the corner, and things are already heating up, and it’s not just the weather, honey! In the next few months, half the world will be heading into springtime, and that brings fresh fashion, bright colours, and fierce makeup with it. Here’s how you can create a quick, easy, “sweet treats” themed makeup look to match your shining summertime personality. Complexion Work: For my base makeup, I used REVOLUTION - Fast Base Stick Foundation in shade F3. I concealed with the help of REVOLUTION - Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer in shade C1. I contoured my cheeks using Revlon Sculpt & Highlight Contour Kit, in shade light/medium. I then applied a soft layer of Juvia's PLACE - The Saharan Blush Palette shade Leena. I also used NYX - Strobe of Genius Holographic Stick in “Mermaid Amour” for an iridescent shine. Colourful Sweet Treats Eye Makeup: Moving on to the eyes, I used theMORPHE - The James Charles Palette for the whole look. I started off by packing on “Pinkity Drinkity” onto the inner half of my eyelid and crease. I then took a light dab of “Skip”, then more Pinkity Drinkity on the same brush to deepen the shade slightly and make it more of a soft but vibrant pink. For darker skin tones, you may want to use more Skip to create a brighter colour. Next up is shade “518”, which I took on a small blending brush and packed onto the outer corner of my eyelid, sweeping inward diagonally toward my lash line. Similarly, I pulled that orange shade outwards towards the tail of my brow, and softly blended it into my pink shadows. I also pulled some of 518 onto the outer third of my lower lash line. To complete the lower lash line, I used shade “Bee” to bring some lightness and brightness to the inner portion of my eye, blending it into 518 along the way. For a final pop of summery colour, I packed shade “Hello” onto a small pencil brush, and spritzed it with a setting spray, before packing it onto the inner corner of my eye. The super shiny effect of the shadow and its lustrous, tropical colour really added a fun and fabulous edge to the themed look. I finished the eyes off with a little black eyeshadow on the outer half of my upper lash line, and some MAYBELLINE - Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara on my lashes, and there you have it! A quick, easy summer makeup look for all levels of makeup lovers. Would you like to see some “how to guides” for more wearable, colourful looks? Comment what colours you’d like to learn how to wear during the daytime!

how lighting changes my skin & hair color!
The picture on the left was taken with natural lighting in the picture on the right is taken with artificial lighting. This is why when I'm blessed enough to do so,. ALSO: I had to pick the thumbnail on the right where I'm making this weird face because it reminds me of Chris Pratt. 😂
