makeup & skincare 🌸 hyperpigmentation & ance but trying to make it work ☁️
Pokémon inspired look🤍
Did this look inspired by Dragonair using theMORPHE - 35I Icy Fantasy Artistry Palette which is one of my favorite pastel palettes and some shades and pressed glitter from the #Colourpop - Fade into hue palette[products]#[FiveStars] that and a little dash of the ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - NORVINA® Electric Cake Liners Trio in white to tie it all together 🤍💦 I’m so obsessed with how this came out! What do you think? ☺️

Colourpop Cloud Spun Collection 🤍
Got to create some content in collaboration with Colourpop for their new Cotton Candy collection 😻 my favorite products from the collection have to be the highlighter because it’s so sparkly! And the Cloud Spun palette for sure because that pressed glitter is stunning ✨
Colourpop will always have my fave liners
Colourpop is definitely one of my favorite brands and they’ve now worked on a new #Colourpop - Creme gel color vault[products]#[FiveStars] and I’m obsessed! It’s their best colors from their COLOURPOP - Crème Gel Liner and made into pots for better use in graphic liner designs like this one I did! If you love their gel liners you’re going to love these little pots 😍

My go-to routine for the last 3 months
This routine has really helped put a halt on the heavy formation of hyperpigmentation! I have to admit, I’m a guilty pimple popper 😬 I HATE seeing them on my face and i know a pimple patch or spot treatment would be best but the anxiety in me will literally not let me stop thinking about a pimple the moment it pops up on my face 😭 overall with this routine I’ve noticed my skin dullness completely disappear and my skin is looking so much more plump and hydrated lately! I get pretty frequent acne but this is about the clearest my skin has looked in a really long time. I’m very wary when adding tools to my skincare routine but this Venus device is so dope! It has 4 different LED light settings (purple, green, red, blue) to combat different skin issues, it heats up and vibrates to really help stimulate the skin and for better product absorption. My favorite part is the fact that there’s a GREEN light option which is known to help with uneven tone (a godsend). With that and the addition of EMS (electrical muscle stimulation) to tone and tighten face muscles to keep us looking snatched and plump! This little machine does it all! Here’s to clearer skin and working on ourselves in 2021 🔥 I still also use the SAND&SKY - Australian Emu Apple Super Bounce Mask weekly to help keep my skin hydrated and to soften up those dark spots as well ☺️ slurp - Niacid Murad - Nutrient-Charged Water Gel TATCHA - The Essence Plumping Skin Softener MDNA SKIN - MDNA SKIN The Eye Serum #SKIIN co - Venus tool[products]#[FiveStars] TATCHA - The Rice Wash Skin-Softening Cleanser

THE PRETTIEST BABY BLUE 🥺
Okay so we’ve literally all seen a rainbow palette so it’s nothing brand new or magical but I have to give it to Colourpop on this one! They KILLED IT with this new Fade Into Hue rainbow palette! It features rows of all your favorite colors in an array of mattes, shimmers, and even pressed glitters! Idk about you but if you haven’t tried the glitters from colourpop then you’re missing out 🔥 they’re super affordable and not to mention they definitely are SPARKLY ✨ Overall I have to give the palette a solid 10 out of 10! From the formula, the the palette size, performance and addition of the glitters I can easily say this is my favorite rainbow palette by far and WAY better than the Shes a rainbow palette they dropped a while back. The only small complaint I have is if you look at the second slide there’s a bit of an oil patch around the shade “So Precious”. I’m assuming this the adhesive within that pressed glitter shade that’s absorbed into the carton unit but overall still an amazing palette for the price and performance! Retails for only $25 #Colourpop - Fade into hue palette[products]#[FiveStars]
The new 35B
I’m so stoked that Morphe decided to drop another 35B!! It made me a little nostalgic considering I started posting my makeup online using that as my first ever colorful palette over 3 years ago 🥺 the formula on this one is definitely BOMB but I personally would’ve preferred for it to not come back as a Lisa Frank collection. Rather, I’d love to just have seen them revamping it and bringing it back as an OG Morphe palette. Tried to do a look that was colorful but the other grayscale eye depicts the dark and bland side of working in the industry. Overall love the palette and this lewk ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤🤍🤎MORPHE - X Lisa Frank 35B by Lisa Frank Artistry Palette

Grossly Satisfying: A Copper Dry Brush
The Now - Copper Dry Brush Do you have dry skin on your body? Do you like go self tan? I’m telling you this brush is a GOD-SEND! It’s a copper dry brush from The Now and really don’t have say much else, right? The video speaks for itself. I use this probably once a week to remove dead, dry skin. And yes, I moisturize both morning and evening! My body has been more dry since we started isolation. Dry brushing is a great treatment for getting your blood circulation going and for lymphatic drainage. It’s clearly a great exfoliator as well! I use it to remove remnants of self tanner or to prep before self tanning as well! This is the cheapest option I’ve found. This brush can also be referred to as an Energy Brush or an Ionic Dry Brush.

This Saved My Rough Elbows!
So I used three products and this was my week difference this is KP (melanin version) FIRST AID BEAUTY - KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub with 10% AHA I was skeptical about this at first but combined with my cloth and lotion it really worked! It has 10% glycolic & lactic acid. ($28) ALPHA SKIN CARE - Revitalizing Body Lotion my very first post on Cherie was about this lotion! I use it on my entire body and have seen tremendous results! It’s 12% glycolic acid & leaves my skin moisturized and smooth! I use it everywhere ! Please use sunscreen the following day to avoid sun damage ! ($17.99) THE SALUX SHOP - Nylon Washcloths the original exfoliating clothes. (Also apart of my very first post). These are the Japanese award winning clothes that changed the way I shower forever. They’re exfoliating so if you have sensitive skin please take caution. I got them from amazon 2 for $10 ! I’ve had them for 6 months and they’re still like new. They said they’re self cleaning, but I’ve washed mines like three times since I had them! (DONT DRY THEM). I also use Dove - Sensitive Skin Beauty Bar before this treatment. Since I’m using many acids (which are perfectly fine to mix together) I want to make sure I’m not doing any other harsh damage to my skin. order Dove - Sensitive Skin Beauty Bar with THE SALUX SHOP - Nylon Washcloths FIRST AID BEAUTY - KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub with 10% AHA (use your hands it’s already rough enough) ALPHA SKIN CARE - Revitalizing Body Lotion (once out the shower) @AnishaB

My favorite trio 🌱🖤
I’ve been using this combination and already loving at how well my skin has taken to it! I’m pretty oily/combination skin but I also have the issue where my face gets extremely dry based on what washes I’m using. So I decided to lean to another cleansing route and immediately thought of Lush. LUSH - Herbalism FACE AND BODY CLEANSER is such an uplifting body and face cleanser which has kaolin clay to detox the skin while the ground almonds exfoliate! The super subtle scent of rose absolute is so wonderful along with its soothing and balancing properties. I get pretty crazy face, shoulder and back breakouts and I have yet to have any issues with this wash and I feel like it’s really the only thing I can use at this point! LUSH - Mask Of Magnaminty I love pairing this mask with the Herbalism Cleanser to really help amplify the exfoliating process. This mask contains honey to help the skin retain its moisture while cleansing, and peppermint oil to aid in a cooling and invigorating experience. The exfoliation is in the Ground Aduki Beans which aid to remove dead skin cells. Lastly I go in with my dermalogica - Age Smart BioLumin-C Serum to help brighten, tone, and bring a bounce back into my skin. This incredible serum is packed with a high performance vitamin C to keep the skin young and plump with that lovely little bounce to it while also helping speed up the healing of any discoloration of the skin. These 3 items have been so good to me for the last 2 weeks and I can’t wait to see what my skin looks like 3 months from now! Before and after pictures will be up soon :)

My skin journey
I’ve always had acne since I was 14 but wasn’t extreme and I also didn’t understand that taking care of your skin is really important. I Started getting really bad cystic acne last year (23 yrs old ) like my pores got so big and just no amount of makeup or products were helping me. I’ve tried over 100 products/ brands and spent thousands to figure this out. In my defeat, I finally decided to learn about skincare and what could I do to help. I’ve spent a full year learning about ingredients, products and brands that benefited not only my skin but my family’s too! So my skin has cleared up so much that I don’t even complain if I have a little pimple or some blackheads on my nose cause it has never been this clear in over 10 years!! I’m finally going out makeup free:) Here’s a list of products I now use : Night: The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser Krave - Kale-Lalu-yAHA If I’m feeling dry I’ll add 100% cold pressed jojoba oil in my night cream I sometimes switch the KraveBeauty kale aha for The Ordinary - Mandelic Acid 10% + HA Morning: INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Krave - The Beet Shield I’ll post other products that I use but not as often as these ones !!
INDIE LEE-CoQ-10 Toner
althea Milk Peel Cream Mask . It's not that I haven't tried any bubble masks before but the fact that it changes from clay to bubble masks is so strange to me at first. You'd expect a clay mask will harden over period of time and you'd wash it off using sponge to some sort of exfoliate your dead skin cells at the same time but not this one! . It does absorb all kinds of impurities off my pores and it exfoliates rather gently and on the surface but also deep into the pores with AHA and BHA. . Overall, 3.5/5. I find this product just slightly above average as it does what it claims but it dried out my U-zone area so much even though I strictly follow the instructions to start washing it off once it started to bubble up.
