5 Steps for Soft and Natural Everyday Makeup 💋
Most days I prefer to go light on makeup if I’m just going out to run a few errands, or doing something casual with friends and family. I have a few key products that I use to help elevate my natural features, ones that I think are the most essential to help us feel more put together. Below are a few of my go to products when I want a fast, easy, and natural makeup look for everyday. You can substitute any of the specific products I mention for your own, these are just what I prefer! 1. BROWS BROWS BROWS Anytime I have nicely groomed and defined brows I immediately feel more confident. There’s something about a nicely fluffed brow that just makes me happy. Not only that, I find that it helps frame the face and adds a bit more definition to the eye area. My current favorite brow routine uses only two products: The Anastasia Brow Wiz and the Anastasia Brow Gel. The Brow Wiz has a very precise pencil tip that helps with shaping my brows and filling them in with small defined strokes, and the gel helps with adding even more definition and shape while making sure they stay put all day. 2. Conceal and Powder Concealer is the most important step to this routine. I focus my concealer application to the center of my face - think under the eyes, around the nose, and chin area. This is where I have the most redness so I focus here and then follow up with some powder. We’re not using a foundation in this routine, but for me the concealer is enough to help even out the skin tone and blend in with the rest of our bare skin, giving a seamless natural look. I’ve been using the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and powder for years now, and they never fail me. 3. Rosy Cheeks I find that blush is a very important step after adding all that concealer and powder, which tends to flatten the face a bit. Blush will give your face a fresh look and help in defining facial structure. I don’t focus the product on the apples of my cheeks, I prefer to take it up on my cheekbones and then blend it to the apples just a bit, this defines my cheekbones more than if I only applied to the apples. Currently I’ve been loving the Wet n Wild Color Icon blush. 4. Bronzer This doesn’t serve the purpose you might expect in this particular routine. When I’m in a hurry out the door I don’t bother bronzing my face, but what I will do is put a bit of bronzer in the crease of my eyelids. It’s a quick and easy step that will define the eye and give it a bronzy look. I use the Benefit Hula Bronzer. 5. Maaaaascaraaaaa This speaks for itself. Without mascara my eyes just look incomplete lol. I’ve been loving the Buxom Lash Mascara, it gives my lashes ample volume and length, and opens up my eyes. Bonus (6.): Throw on some lip balm! 💋 I hope you’ve enjoyed taking a look at my quick and simple natural everyday makeup routine. Comment below on what your go-to everyday makeup products are, I’d love to know!

Perfect Pinky Flush for Under $3? Yes Please!
🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸 Blush is one of my fav makeup products; It brings so much life and brightness to the face. I recently tried out this Wet n Wild blush in ‘Pearlescent Pink’ that I picked up form Target for only ✨2.99✨. It is a peachy pink color with the most subtle sheen when blended out. It applies beautifully, with no patchiness whatsoever, and gives a very natural flush. What I like about it as well is it’s buildabilty (is that a word lol), you can apply it lightly and work your way up to the brightness you’re looking for. They have a few other shades to try out as well, which I’m looking forward to! wet n wild - Color Icon Blush

Are they worth the hype?! FULL REVIEW!
One brand love, @benefitcosmetics 🥰 finally reviewing some products from one of my favorite makeup brands - benefit! 💖 • benefit - Cyber Monday Free Porefessional Face Primer Deluxe Sample With Brand Purchase - been using this for years, one of my favorite and go-to primers. Yall know I have big pores and this really helps me blur them out 😭 it has this silk like balm consistency that feels really lightweight on skin. It excellently works for minimizing pores and out of all my primers here, this one lasts the longest!!! One of the best primers I’ve tried so far but a little bit pricey too 🥲 • benefit - Benefit Tinted Cheek & Lip Stain - to be honest, I don’t really like this one. It dries out my lips and doesn’t really last all day. I have to reapply every time. And not a fan of the formula and faint rose smell 😔 • benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzer - THE BEST!!!!! I would repurchase this over and over. This is the perfect shade not too dark and too light. I wear this for my everyday makeup! It looks so natural on me and it’s so easy to build up. 💕 • benefit - High Brow Eyebrow Highlighter - Just a simple highlighting pencil for brows and inner corners of the eye. Just the right amount of highlight and smooth texture. ☺️ • benefit - Goof Proof Brow Pencil - I SWEAR benefit has the best brow products!!! I emptied this pencil so quick. I love the formula of the pencil, looks really natural on my brows, stays all day and blends beautifully. Best brow product ever, HANDS DOWN. 🙌🏻 • benefit - 24-Hour Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel - Another great product from benefit, this definitely holds my brows in place without feeling wet or sticky and keeps the pigment of the brow product as well. No crunchy feeling at all, works really well with other brow products. • benefit - Free Roller Lash Mascara Deluxe - Not really my favorite, formula leaves smudges under my eyes. Though it makes my lashes lengthy but doesn’t curl and is really clumpy. Overall, I love @benefitcosmetics! I really look forward to trying all their brow products because they are THE BEST!!!! Also, I wanna try their other makeup products as well. 🤞🏻 #benefit #benefitcosmetics
He want that cake cake cake 🍰 🎂
Hey Cherie Fam! 🍒 I attempted to do a Christmas look today with the cake palette from Glamlite, but I failed miserably. I used the shade “red velvet” thinking it would be red, but it turned out to be a fuchsia. My lids are supposed to be green, but it turned out to be teal so now this look turned to be a cotton Candy look 😢 Anyway, this is a great rainbow palette 🌈 but if you’re looking for a true red, there isn’t a shade in here. The shimmers aren’t a true green either. It’s not exactly primary colors of a rainbow palette, but I love the formula. To achieve this look, I used: 1️⃣ Red velvet and packed it all over the crease then I blended it 2️⃣ I grabbed a smaller brush and dipped in to cranberry to blend the edges of red velvet 3️⃣ I cut my crease and packed avocado all over my lid. This shade is from the burger slider palette 4️⃣ I placed cinnamon on my inner corner 5️⃣ Red velvet, cranberry and raspberry on the lower lash 6️⃣ Mascara and falsies. I used house of lashes in demure lite Check out out my Instagram because I’m doing 12 days of Christmas. I will be posting a look everyday until Christmas. Happy holidays all! Xoxo, Francesca
Favorite mascara! MUST HAVE!
This is the Buxom Blackest Black mascara.BUXOM - Lash Mascara Blackest Black I absolutely adore this product it has became my all time favorite mascara. I love this mascara because it stays on all day and has no fall out. This is hands down the best mascara I’ve ever used. The wand is very long with short bristles so you don’t get your mascara clumped together on your lashes which happens to many mascaras. This is one of my everyday products for sure I highly recommend!

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.2 DAYS AGO
