Full(ish) face of ILIA
ILIA has become one of my favorite beauty brands over the past year due to their gorgeous products, clean beauty stance, and amazing formulations. I’m wearing nearly a full face from them minus the brows (benefit gimme brow) and bronzer (milk baked, but they just came out with their own). - Super Serum Skin Tint: 8/10 This skin tint contains spf 40, niacinimide, squalane, and hyaluronic acid so its a three in one product perfect for busy mornings. I find it to be long wearing about 8 or 9 hours of wear, which is pretty high for a skin tint. This gives the skin such a glowy, hydrated look. - Color Haze Pigment in Stutter: 9/10 Used here as a blush these also look gorgeous on the lips. Stutter is my favorite of all the pigment shades, it is a deep burnt orange that is very rare to find. The pigment itself is probably the thickest cream blush I’ve ever used but that just means you need the smallest amount, a little goes a long way. - Liquid Light Serum Highlighter: 6/10 This product can be a kind of hit or miss with me, sometimes it looks so gorgeous and natural and other times it accentuates the texture of my skin so badly. My favorite ways to use this is either mixed in with a base or under the super serum skin tint. These methods of application allow the highlighter to appear more skin like and dewy. - Limitless Lash Mascara: 10/10 My favorite mascara ever! This gives amazing length, doesn’t get clumpy, adds volume, and last for hours. This is truly the best mascara I’ve tried by far.

Clean beauty brands🥒
This Ilia Beauty lipstick is absolutely gorgeous! This one is in the shade Wild Rose, and I find it works beautifully with my skin tone, it can be lightly tapped on for a bit of a tint, or darker with a little more pressure. This formula is also very hydrating, doesn’t leave stains or make the lips appear chapped. Also the staying power is great. One of my favorite lipsticks! I would definitely recommend this to everyone, it is worth the price/time/effort. ILIA - Color Block High Impact Lipstick
Another great lipstick
ILIA - Color Block High Impact Lipstick What’s better than lipsticks? CLEAN lipsticks. Have you ever thought about wiping off your lipsticks before you eat or drink? Prob not right? I usually do it and I find it so annoying. Now, with this clean lipstick, I don’t have to worry about directly taking in something toxic in my system. This lipstick gives a semi matte feels to my lips. This shade is so pretty (nude but slightly more red/brown-darker than my other fave axiology lipstick on loyalty). Those two lipsticks are the ones I go to often the past months since I’m into neutral looks now a days. Packaging is pretty! Another vanity must add product. It feels comfortable and doesn’t emphasize any lines. Feels less hydrating than axiology but more than most lipsticks I’ve tried. Totally recommend trying.
Acne/texture friendly highlighter
Product claims: A gel-based, anti-pollution serum highlighter that can be mixed with skincare or foundation or applied directly to skin for a natural, dewy finish Highlighter ingredients: Hydrolyzed Algae helps control oil and bacteria while conditioning skin Marine Actives help to firm and protect skin against free radicals and UV light Mastic helps refine the skin’s texture to give a smooth and even appearance My experience: This is such an innovative product for those who are looking for skincare benefits with makeup. If you have pores, texture and acne like me, you know it’s a struggle to find highlighters which doesn’t emphasize the blemishes. This adds such a nice glow to my skin when I mix it in with my foundation and I think it lives up to the claim of controlling oil. The thing that I love the most about it is that it doesn’t leave a white cast and doesn’t exaggerate my pores on the high points Do I recommend this to others? Yes definitely! This highlighter also comes in 3 shades and the packaging also has a pump to keep the product bacteria free! Price: $42 for 0.5 oz
Perfect Match: Glowing Skin Trio
✨Serum Foundation - this is literally a serum texture, it’s gives the most beautiful glow and medium coverage to the skin and sinks in to feel almost like a lightweight oil. It’s infused with aloe so I find my skin stays much more hydrated throughout the day! After reading I thought that 2 would be my shade, but instead got 1.5 and it truly disappears on the skin. I love when a shade matches me this good! This would be my perfect foundation, but I wish there was more coverage. I hope once my skin clears more It’ll be perfect ILIA - True Skin Serum Foundation ✨ Radiant priming primer - this has a beautiful “natural” smell to it, has a pretty like shimmer to it and soaks in like a serum to give the skin some grip for the foundation and lasting hydration ILIA - True Skin Radiant Priming Serum ✨ Liquid Light - this is a beautiful rosy pink highlight that isn’t chunky, just glowy! I love mixing this with my primer or foundation for an all over glow and then on the high points to make them shine!! It’s has a funny smell, but I think it’s incredible that it’s anti pollution too ILIA - Liquid Light Serum Highlighter
✨ Multi Stick in All of Me - I like these! I build up about two layers of it to get a bright look that I enjoy, but it’s creamy and glowy and blends out so seamlessly. I love this watermelon shade ILIA - Multi-Stick Cheek & Lip ✨ Gel Eyeliner - this is very black which I appreciate, didn’t sting my eyes and only smudged/transferred to my lower waterline a touch. It stayed all day however on my upper waterline and made my lashes look so thick ILIA - Pure Eyeliner ✨ Clean Line Eyeliner - my new favourite liquid liner. It’s black, wet, glides over the skin without tugging or skipping and creates a very sharp wing. It’s even nap proof ILIA - Clean Line Liquid Eyeliner

2021 Fashion Week Inspired Makeup - Chloé
This is the second spring/summer 2021 fashion week inspired look I did. Make sure to check out my other Cherie post for my Hermès look. This look inspired by Chloé focuses on smoldering, smudged out black-rimmed eyes, dewy skin, and juicy nude lips. The eye look was particularly interesting to me because of the blank spaces in the center of the model’s lower and upper lids. The base of this look is the same as my Hermès look. I’ve included the inspo photo that I found on Allure. Complexion: Glossier. - Futuredew Oil Serum Hybrid - this oil-serum hybrid is perfect for adding a glowy base on bare skin, under makeup, or over makeup on the high points of your face for a natural, yet wet-looking highlight. I used 1 pump all over my face under my skin tint, and a tiny bit dabbed on the tops of my cheek bones after my skin tint. $24 ILIA - Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 “balos” - light coverage to even out my skin tone and also amp up the dew. $46 e.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer “light peach” - I used 2 tiny dots under my eyes to add some coverage. $6 AOA studio - Sculpt FX Contour “fawn” - the model does not appear to be wearing any cheek products; however, has beautiful, defined cheekbones. I don’t have defined cheekbones, so I used this to give a slight contoured effect. $1 Now the fun part! I used URBAN DECAY - 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil “perversion” to lightly outline the inner and outer portions of my top and bottom lash lines. I smudged this out with a pencil brush. Then I used the shade “black” from my LORAC - PRO Matte Eye Shadow Palette to intensify the smokiness. I made sure to keep the space directly in the middle of my eyes blank on both upper and lower lash lines. I then drew a thick wing on the outer corner of each eye, topped with black shadow, and smudged inwards. I couldn’t tell if the model was wearing mascara, but I added 1 quick coat of URBAN DECAY - Lash Freak Volumizing & Lengthening Mascara to add an extra pop to my eyes. For lips, I lightly blotted COLOURPOP - Ultra Matte Lip “little one” (limited edition, no longer available) to add a hint of nude to my lips. Then I topped with the ICONIC - Lip Plumping Gloss in “nearly nude” . This gloss is super glossy and wet looking - perfect for ultra juicy-looking lips! This look was so fun to create. Unlike the Hermès look, this isn’t something I would personally wear day-to-day, but for Halloween or the runway it’s perfect! It’s so hard not to smile in photos 🤪 #CheriePartner
2021 Fashion Week Inspired Makeup - Hermès
This look is inspired by models for Hermes for 2021 spring/summer fashion week. This look focuses on super dewy skin and a bold, red lip as the center of attention. This look was really easy to recreate and something I would actually rock IRL (except for the lack of mascara because mascara is bae). I’ve included the inspo photo from Allure. To add a glowy base to my complexion, I used Glossier. - Futuredew Oil Serum Hybrid . I only ever use 1 pump of this oil-serum hybrid because I think any more makes me look like a grease ball. I applied this all over my face and dabbed a tiny amount onto my eyelids. This product is perfect for applying on bare skin, under makeup, and can even be used over makeup for a natural, wet-looking highlight. After I applied my complexion products, I dabbed a tiny amount onto the high points of my cheekbones. Sticking with the dewy theme, I used the ILIA - Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 in “balos”. I’m not sure if the models were wearing complexion products because their skin looked super natural, yet also “flawless”. Since I have some redness on my cheeks, I used this skin tint to even out my skin tone and amp up the dew. I lightly concealed underneath my eyes with the e.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer in “light peach”. The models don’t appear to be wearing any cheek products, though I did add a tiny bit of AOA studio - Sculpt FX Contour in “fawn” to help sculpt my cheeks a tiny bit like the models. I finished the look off with the SEPHORA COLLECTION - Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick in “always red”. I’ve had a mini of this for quite a while. It’s beautiful, comfortable despite being matte, does leave a tint behind, and is long-wearing. This is the kind of lipstick that would last from the runway well into the after party (in non-COVID times, of course). The models don’t appear to be wearing any mascara, so I skipped that. I filled in my brows a bit more than usual for a fuller appearance. I used the essence - Superlast Eyebrow Pomade Pencil in “dark brown”. Such a fun look! You guys it’s sooo hard not to smile. How do models do it?! 🤪 Look for another fashion week look soon. All brands are cruelty-free except for Sephora Collection. Prices: futuredew $24, skin tint $46, concealer $6, contour stick $1, lip stain (full size) $15, brow pencil $3.50 #Cherie Partner

My fav face palette, brings me the perfect look
This is my favourite full-face palette: Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette from Hourglass. I know how hourglass is famous for its highlighters but let me tell you, although this palette looks like containing three highlighters, this is not a simple highlighter! I bought this after reading tons of positive reviews online and it really doesn’t let me down. What does it have: Absolute strobe light Pure strobe light Lucent strobe light How to use them: This is not only a highlighter, as I said. And since I love the glow so much, I have explored multiple ways to corporate this palette into my makeup and this is amazing how this always looks good at almost every place on my face lol. Here’s a detailed guidance. I use the first powder as an all over powder. It can blot down shininess and never looks like you powdered your face. People always say that they can’t see the “product” on my face and I guess that’s why this palette has the name because it’s ambient! The powders are meant to give your skin a natural-glow-within type of look. I use the powder in the middle as a highlighter, especially good for the under-eye area. And since it is the most glowing one in this palette, I’ve also tried to use it as a shimmer to apply on the corner of the eye, which really compliments almost every eye look. And for the final powder, the darkest shade, I use it to accentuate my contour or bronzer. I would also use all the 3 to apply all over my face. My thoughts on this product: I know many brands have their own face palette. The reason I opted for this one is that I am so drawn into the nice subtle glow of these three powders. It’s really hard to describe: It’s not shimmery or metallic-y. I hope the pictures could let you have a sense of it. It is sold at $64 at Sephora. I know it’s little pricy and I do believe you can purchase a similar product for a lot less but, personally, it’s definitely a staple in my makeup collection and I don’t regret buying it at all!

that Zoom look 🔥
WOWWW! I haven’t worn makeup in two months. I’ve been so focused on my skincare routine that I forgot how exhilarating it is to dip into an eyeshadow palette 😲 BOBBI BROWN - Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss ￼￼￼I absolutely LOVE this lip gloss! It glides on like a dream and keeps my lips moisturized without feeling tacky. It lasts all day on the lips and I can go hours without an application. Everyone on my Zoom calls ask me what I’m wearing! ￼￼Wearing: Nougat

Makeup For Video Interviews 🖥✨#CheriePartner
As a May 2020 graduate, I’ve been doing a lot of interviews and phone calls over the quarantine period for jobs and internships. Along the way I picked a few key tips for achieving a flawless, professional makeup look perfect for video calls. All I want is to make the impression that I’m put together and perfect for the role! Of course, everyone has different kinds of makeup looks, and specific parts of makeup that make it “signature” to them (like a strong winged liner, or bold lip, or even a super bare natural face!). But for me, my “signature” looks is something quite fresh-faced, glowy skin, defined eyes and a tinted lip! Tips: 1) Stay true to yourself! If you never wear a red lip, don’t wear a red lip to the interview. If you always have a beautiful eyeshadow look on, definitely put some eyeshadow on! The truth is, when you feel most like yourself, the more confident you will appear to others. 2) Video calls tend to wash you out, so if you’re applying a color product maybe add a little more than usual! Here is what I used: ￼￼HOURGLASS - Illume Sheer Color Trio This is a the perfect product to bronze, blush AND highlight the face! The formula is super creamy and soft, but definitely packs a punch with its pigment. The highlight also gives off a beautiful glow on camera! ￼￼ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Radiant Concealer I don’t feel the need for a foundation on camera as blemishes are generally not visible depending on video resolution. But I have really bad under eye circles that can make me look tired, so I always want a little concealer just to brighten up my face and eyes. This one is medium coverage with a natural finish on the skin. ￼￼COLOURPOP - Brow Boss Pencil I always define my brows because they help to frame the face. This is an amazing inexpensive one that has the perfect waxy formula for adding fullness to the brows that looks natural. ￼￼NUDESTIX - Magnetic Luminous Eyeshadow Defining my eyes is important to me because it’s a feature of my face that I really like. So a little glowy eyeshadow helps to bring attention to my eyes, helps me look a little more awake and defines it a little more. ￼￼MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Mascara Full Fan Effect I know it’s near impossible to see individual lashes on video call but it helps a lot with defining my eyes! It also makes me feel more put together too just because I’d feel off if I had a full face of makeup and didn’t have mascara on. ￼￼lisa eldridge - True Velvet Lipstick in Velvet Muse This is one of my favorite matte lipsticks because it’s super pigmented, non-drying but gives a matte finish. I add a little balm beforehand to keep my lips moisturized and to sheer the color a little. This is definitely a my-lips-but-better kind of shade.

Body GLITTER | Worth the $$$?????
This is a very glittery shimmer unlike the usual lotion shimmers, Gives a stunning glow when out in the sun. recommended to two friends who are so satisfied as well. FENTY BEAUTY - Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil So the packaging is nice, it feels soft. It is Very Very Very pretty and smells great. Everytime I wear this I get so many compliments on the look and the scent! Feels like I’m always glistening.so glittery. Let's get started on how to put it on. Normally I would apply a primmer before this. Just to make sure the glitter stays naturally and won’t fall off over my neck. Basically you will need a soft brush for this powder. Apply on the areas where you want to highlight - the neck and shoulder. It is really soft and does a great job in blending out these glittery powders and makes it look natural. The colors match the my fair skin tone perfectly. It does hold a lot of glitter in its bristles when you are using a brush, If you do want to do a little bit of creamy product for contouring, you may want to use a sponge or just bare fingers.It just makes it more intense. But still, Feels and looks very luxurious I think this brush is great to put on the body but for what it it is it’s quite pricey for what it is. For this kind of product, I feel like less is more. And it will give you a more sweaty and dewy finish. It is not so much sheen or shimmer. Overall, this product is Really beautiful. I would imagine that Im wearing this in a night club and look like a diamond bob. I like it makes me look summery and fun and dewy. And if you dont like anything sticky (referring to those shimmery oil or cream in market) like me, this one would probably be a great option. However, I do notice the glitters might fall off even with primmer. So be careful when you are hugging someone or exchange your cloth. And i feel like the color is very universal, there are many dupes at lower prices.
