Kosas - 10-Second Eyeshadow
NATASHA DENONA - Mini Nude Eyeshadow Palette
Traditionally, I would only use powder eyeshadows. I’ve never had issues with color payoff or lasting powder with many of my eyeshadow palettes. I’ve never been one to use liquid eyeshadows but I’ve been experimenting with these Kosas 10 second eyeshadows. I was intrigued by the claim that this is a quick way to complete a whole eye look. Immediately I will say that these take more than 10 seconds to use. If you want a good color payoff you will have to build these up and wait for them to dry between each coat. Also, I prefer using at least one shade in my crease before applying this to my eyelid because I like the end result better. That step is not necessary however it does add on to the time needed to work with these. This particular shade goes on sheer at first and a bit streaky. The color is gorgeous but you do need to work quickly and carefully with them. I think this would be good as a base for another shadow on top of it for a long lasting effect however, I don’t think this particular liquid eyeshadow is more convenient than a traditional powder eyeshadow. I’m obsessed with the Natasha Denona mini palettes. They are very small however I get good use out of all the shades. This particular bronzy shimmer shade is similar to the Kosas ones. This brand has some of the best metallic shades on the market in my opinion. They swatch beautifully and feel almost wet. The color payoff is insane in one swipe and I find it so easy to apply these to the lid. I don’t need a primer or concealer to make this eyeshadow pop with intense color. I love the other shades in this palette as well and I often mix the shimmer shades together before applying onto the lid. In my opinion, powder eyehsadows are the same if not better than a liquid eyeshadow in terms of color payoff and lasting power. It might not be worth it to carry around a tube of just one eye shade when you can use this mini palette instead

Easy 10 MIN makeup look. Out the door!
I’m all about finding easy natural looking makeup looks. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good glam session, but most times I am pressed for time and need to get out the door. These are some of my go-to products for times like that! Minimal but still a really pretty makeup look! I have combo skin, and right now my tone is light-medium! For a quick look I’m all about time efficiency! I use Perricone MD - No Makeup Foundation Serum Broad Spectrum SPF 20 for a quick sheen finish and evening out my skin (I have some hyperpigmentation spots). This stuff is really great. It’s really lightweight and it genuinely looks like you aren’t wearing any makeup! I would almost compare it to Ilia Beauty’s skin tint but this one is not oily at all. I prefer the perricone one more! I like to use the Kosas - 10-Second Eyeshadow for a quick one sweep over the eye. It is truly a liquid formula but it dries down to a matte. There is minimal creasing, but there still is some. #Laura Mercier - Blush[products]#[FiveStars] in the shade fresco is the perfect nude blush for me. It has a sheen shimmery finish but it doesn’t look gawdy or overdone. It is perfect to shape out your face and I can even put this one my eyes for a pretty nude eye look also. Glossier. - Brow Flick is what I use on my brows because it gives the perfect “brow strokes.” It’s so easy to use but you have to have a very light hand to make sure it is not over done! I’ve been using false lashes because they’re easy to use and makes the look complete! ARDELL - Wispies Lash they’re cheap and can be done in under a minute! Hope you liked this look! #cheriepartner

Blondes Have More Fun But...
...Brunettes remember it the next day? I am glad to be back to my roots (literally). I have been highlighting my hair and doing balayage for years. However, during this uncertain times I wanted to keep my hair more low maintenance. Salons keep closing and re-opening and there’s no way I could keep up with my balayage. With lowlights, I don’t have to go back to the salon every 12 weeks and my roots will blend better once my hair grows. I haven’t been brunette for a long time and I’m enjoying it. ...also I feel smarter. 🤣🤦‍♀️ So for my hair, I got partial highlights to break up my roots then low lights to darken the whole head. My hair was toned with Redken Shades Color Gloss in 6 GB and Redken chromatically in 6NA REDKEN - Chromatics Prismatic Hair Color *DISCLAIMER* I’m not a hair professional so please take this post with a grain of salt Xoxo, Francesca 💋

Natural + Dewy Beat Using New Products 💖🤩🥰
Hey Cherie Fam! 🍒 Happy new year all! I decided to do a natural and dewy makeup for my first look of 2021...and by natural I mean no lashes and no crazy and dramatic eyeshadow. For some this may be dramatic so it depends how you define “natural”. ...and by new products I mean new to me. Sorry that the tittle is a little click-baity 😳🥺 I got new products that I’ve been trying and loving lately. For DRUGSTORE PRODUCTS, I used: • MAYBELLINE - Lifter Gloss With Hyaluronic Acid I am wearing the shade petal and omfg I am never spending $$$ on fenty again because this is the exact same dupe. Formula feels the same and smells the same •wet n wild - MegaGlo Blushlighter I love this product, however I don’t think this is a “blush”. I thought the pink side was a blush but it’s as sheer and as shimmery as the highlighter. On the plus side, this is helping me GLOW and look dewy af. I got the shade “I Met Someone” •e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer I talked about this primer so many times and it’s so worth the $8! I don’t even use my high end primers anymore •e.l.f. - Instant Lift Brow Pencil I ran out of my HG brow pencil (Benefit Precisely my Brow) and tried this. It’s so creamy and the quality is so good. Did I mention it’s $2 • essence - Volume Booster Lash Primer I bought this after@madisonnoonsposted about it. I used L’Oréal primer but this is much cheaper and better •NYX - NYX Retractable Eyeliner I used to love Colourpop liners but they break easily on me. This has a much creamier and sturdy formula. I use the nude and white shade HIGH-END PRODUCTS •ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Micro-Stroking Detailing Brow Pen I got the shade in dark brown and I prefer this much more than benefit’s microfilling pen. It’s much more precise and easier to use •ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Pro Pencil You don’t need this. You can use concealer to clean up your brows but this makes it much easier and faster. I caught ABH’s 2 for 30 deal otherwise I wouldn’t repurchase •NATASHA DENONA - Mini Nude Eyeshadow Palette My current favorite 🤩 I have been using this and it’s perfect for an everyday look. The formula is amazing! I would invest if they had a bigger palette By the way shout out to @cheriefor my merch 🥰 the sweater is so comfy and I love the hat! I truly am proud to be a #CherieCreator Xoxo, Francesca 💋

Natasha Denona’s Metropolis palette is the most unique palette: from the color compilation to her formulas. She introduced a new formula in the Metropolis palette: a cream to powder. I’ve found that using a dense brush with this formula gives the maximum amount of color pay off! It’s hard to find a palette that is practically perfect - this one is one of the best! I love reaching for this palette because I know that my shadow will still be on my eye, crease free, at the end of my day!

A wonderful warm toned eyeshadow palette with four mattes and six shimmers. Another great eyeshadow palette by Ohii Beauty that is great for people who want to start using more color in their looks. I don’t use this as much as their Magic Hour eyeshadow palette but I’ve been starting to use it more lately. Really pigmented, easy to blend, no fallout. ohii - Treasure Shadow Palette

I wanted to share my latest ct
I wanted to share my latest ctilburymakeup haul. I was on the fence about buying the pillow talk palette for so long, i already have exaggereyes and thought they looked to similar to own them both. Anyway turns out there actually not similar at all. So if you want both, you should get both!! The Charlotte Tilbury quads are all fantastic, the shadows coordinate well together so if your a makeup novice Charlotte has already done the work for you picking shades that beautifully compliment each other. The quality is fantastic to, they blend really well with no fall out and are super pigmented. (The glitter toppers are best applied with your finger) I think I’ll share a post of my Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow collection if that’s something you’d like to see? There are still a few quads I don’t own (yet) The eyes to mesmerise in Rose gold is absolutely stunning, I’ve wanted this for so long but it’s always been out of stock when I tried to buy it, it’s popular for a reason!! That colour looks beautiful on and the formulae of these eyeshadows is probably my all time favourite cream eyeshadow formula, you get just enough blend time before it drys down, once this sets it won’t smudge or crease and it lasts all day.

This eyeshadow palette is so great for people who want to start experimenting with color but are a little nervous to. There are 10 shimmery shades in the palette and are fairly cool toned. My favorite two shades are tigereye and peridot. All of these colors can be worn as a one color wash across the whole eyelid and create a full look. You could also mix them up and get creative, but I’m terrible at doing eyeshadow so for me it’s one and done 😂 These are all easy to blend and last all day. ohii - Magic Hour Eyeshadow Palette

Pat McGrath vs Huda Beauty, worth it?
Pat McGrath vs Huda Beauty, worth it?
Pat McGrath vs Huda Beauty EYE SHADOW palettes, worth it? Pat McGrath and Huda Beauty are two makeup brands that became popular in these few years. Eye shadow palette is a top category for both brands, but they have huge price differences. Pat McGrath $125 Bronze Seduction Palette Pat McGrath, a British make-up artist. She is one of the most influential make-up artists in the world by many commentators. And she launched the luxury cosmetic brand, which the brand shares her name, called Pat McGrath. The first time I saw the brand was in Sephora, I remember it was a gold plastic bag with gold glitters in it with make-up products. After that, I heard about the brand lot of time from my friends. I got the classic eye shadow palette called Bronze Seduction Palette. I have to say that the package is amazing. The black plastic palette is really heavy, with shine effect. There are 10 colors, 6 of igniting metallic, pearlized pigments and amplifying colors and 4 of them are matte texture. Every color is fully pigmented and opaque color saturation. Creamy and soft textures make the product blendable. I love every single pigment in this palette! After I received it, this is one of my favorite eye shadows. Huda Beauty $65 Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Palette When the first time I heard about the brand, the desert dusk palette was so famous, everyone was talking about it. And I bought in from Sephora. You can totally see that the palette has lot of choices and possibilities to make different looks. One palette can satisfy your daily and party needs. 18 shades with 1 dazzling glitter, 8 creamy mattes, 6 shimmering pearl shades and 3 duo-chrome toppers. Combinations of layering different textures make unique dramatic looks. When I use this palette, I like to use the colors for my blush, too. It makes my make-up look consistent. But I don’t use the glitter one, I think the glitter is too much for me for now. I feel the texture of Huda Beauty is not as good as Pat McGrath. The prices of Pat is twice times of Huda Beauty, but Pat McGrath is totally WORTH that price. Those shimmering pigments are SOOOOO beautiful!!!! I LOVE IT SO MUCH!
