CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT | CT Hollywood Flawless
Charlotte Tilbury - Hollywood Flawless Filter I can’t live without this! When I pucked up Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter, I was expecting more of a shinnery highlight. To my surprise, it looked more like a glowy foundation. Yet on the skin, it looks more stunning than I ever thought!It has a glowy, natural finish. Unlike most highlighters that are purely glowy, this one has some slight coverage, making it blend seamlessly with foundation. I love how this layers on top of my foundation! It just looks like a natural everyday glow!I can’t live without this because it brings any makeup look a step up with a glow from within look. I also enjoy layering highlighter on top of this if I want a more intense glow. This comes in a few shades but in my opinion they need more dark shades. At first, I got a shade too dark but when I switched I was really impressed with how it blended into my skin. I’m curious to know how a lighter shade would look if I applied it to the high points of my face. This is definitely a holy grail and I would recommend this to anyone! ✨✨

TIKTOK #MAKEUPHACKS: FAKE BIGGER LIPS💋
There are SO many makeup hacks on Tiktok- and I wanted to try out a few~ The first hack I wanted to try was “faking big lips”! Step 1) Slightly over-line lips with a nude lip liner and don’t define cupids bow (just draw a straight horizontal line). KKW BEAUTY - Nude Lip Liner in Nude 1 I love this lipliner so much- it’s so creamy and easy to blend- the shade is also PERFECT for my lip color! Step 2) Fill in the rest of the lips with a lipstick. lisa eldridge - Velvet Fawn in Velvet Muse This lipstick is probably the best matte lip formula I’ve ever tried. It’s super creamy but has a soft-matte finish that can be sheered out for a stained look or piled on for more of a full-on look. Step 3) Use a brow pencil to fill in the corners of the upper lip, draw a thin line above the cupids bow and below middle of bottom lip. benefit - Precisely, My Brow Pencil Ultra Fine Shape & Define Weirdly, this was a great contour shade for my lips! And this brow pencil blended into the lipstick easily. Step 4) Add a gloss to the cupids bow, and down the center of top & bottom lips. NUDESTIX - LIP GLACE Nude I love this gloss- it’s so shiny and adds a tint of color! There is a slight minty feeling that fades after 5 mins. Step 5) Smile! I loved this makeup hack! I’ve definitely seen similar tricks before but the eyebrow pencil was mindblowing! It’s a great shade for contouring my lips without having to buy a separate lip pencil! My lips definitely looked much bigger after trying this technique and I would probably do it again (but only for a photoshoot or for specific makeup looks- it’s not an “everyday” look for me)! Would you try this Tiktok makeup hack?

ERIN'S FACES-Matcha Mascara
For how affordable this palette was it is quite good. The pigment in the mattes could be better but the shimmers are pretty great. The shadows are very blendable and I’m impressed. The color story gives me major ABH subculture vibes but ain’t bad Quality ❤️❤️❤️❤️🤍 Pigmentation ❤️❤️🤍🤍🤍 Blendability ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Is the Milk Hydro Grip Primer worth it? weartest
What are your thoughts on primers? Honestly for a long time I thought they were useless. They dried out my skin and caused terrible breakouts. Until I heard ALL THE HYPE about this primer and tried it out! This is my second travel bottle of Milk’s Hydro Grip Primer: Milk MAKEUP - Hydro Grip Primer I have pretty dry skin so my main goal throughout the day is to stay hydrated—I hate when my makeup clings to and accentuates my dry spots. So let’s do a wear test, shall we?! Application—8:30 AM: Today is a work day so I’m up and I’m just doing my usual—spot concealing my acne scars and any current redness or breakouts with my holy grail concealer which is Milk’s Flex concealer formula: Milk MAKEUP - Flex Concealer. I am working with the general public still so my face will be covered by a mask, so I’m only concealing—no blush or bronzer or foundation. I dot the concealer on the areas of my face I want it to cover the most and let it sit for a few minutes, then stipple blend it out with a dense foundation brush. The primer is STICKY so the concealer on that side has a little more coverage. You can see in the photo I still have texture, which I wasn’t trying to avoid anyway, but no dry spots! Yay! Note my little pimple on my smile line on the primer side, which is MY LEFT (your right :)). External forces: I still have to leave my house to go to work nowadays, so I have to wear a mask over my face—this subjects my skin to friction. Even more of a test for the primer 😉 but luckily my masks are not uncomfortable so I don’t mind! I don’t feel itchy or irritated on my primer side during the whole day. I don’t feel terribly irritated on my non-primed side either, but I can see the concealer starting to flake off on my cheeks. Wear test complete—4:30 PM: I get home from work to asses the damage. Face mask indents aside, my smile line pimple looks COVERED still! The places where my mask was rubbing have less coverage, but the side that wasn’t primed is definitely more red. My goal was to stop dryness but it helped longevity wise too! Final thoughts: I love this primer omg! If you are a normal to dry skin type with dry acne spots this keeps your skin hydrated and flake/crepe free. It also has a slight cooling sensation due to its cool gel formula and texture. I would recommend trying a mini or getting a sample before purchasing, as always. Rating: 5/5. This is one of the only face primers I care to use that I trust!

Fenty Diamond milk dupe💎✨
Ever since I saw this fenty gloss bomb in “diamond milk” I fell in love with it. It’s a beautiful clear gloss with lots of sparkly glitter. It’s great as a topper for any lipstick or perfect on its own. It’s really moisturizing and doesn’t feel sticky. I also can’t feel the sparkles on my lips. The scent and taste is pretty fruity/ has a taste of vanilla also. Definitely a great buy! FENTY BEAUTY - Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer But what if I didn’t want to pay $19 for every bottle....Elf lip lacquer in the shade bubbles is a perfect dupe. It has sparkles and feels really nice on my lips. Even better it’s $3! It’s not sticky AT ALL. It has slightly less sparkles than fenty but it’s great. For an affordable price you can grab a couple of them and rock them too.!! e.l.f. - Lip Lacquer

A dupe worth the hype 🙏🏼
A friend told me about this, they said this wet n wild - Mega Length Mascara 6ml was a perfect dupe for the Glossier. - Lash Slick Mascara First thing I’ll say is I like the Glossier mascara a lot, but it doesn’t lift my lashes too much and it definitely does not look like lash extensions as advertised (at least not on me). Now, the wet n wild mascara is definitely an amazing dupe for glossier lash slick. They had a very similar plastic brush, it’s super flexible so it gets every lash and as you can see, the wet n wild side looks a lot more lifted and separated not to mention it was only like $3 compared to $16 for lash slick!

Maskcara Beauty 3D foundation
I have been wearing Maskcara Beauty 3D foundation for the last 3 years, and swear by it! Maskcara is a relatively new up and coming makeup line that is based on the highlight and contour technique! Highlighting and contouring shows off the best aspects of your face. It lifts your cheeks, brings out your best bone structure, highlights the things you love and minimizes the things you don’t. IIID (3D) Foundation was made to give you the benefits of highlighting and contouring without all the extra steps and wasted time. The customized colors all have great coverage and work together to create one seamless layer on your face.. and the best part, it only takes 5 minutes. The makeup is clean and very lightweight (almost like a “second skin”). It also meets both the European and Australian standards of beauty and rank a 1.5 average on the EWG scale!

TikTok concealer coverage hack 🔥
So I was browsing TikTok the other day (as one does) and I stumbled upon a clip of someone saying if you let your concealer sit for a few minutes before blending it out, it gives you better coverage, so I decided to try it! NOTE: only apply the concealer to areas you want covered, not just all over/messily. What you’ll need: Primer, concealer, and a blending tool (finger, brush, or sponge—I find you get the most coverage when using a dense brush) Products used: Primer: Supergoop Matte Screen Supergoop! - 100% Mineral Smooth & Poreless Matte Screen SPF 40 Concealer: Milk MAKEUP - Flex Concealer Brush: it Cosmetics - Love is the Foundation Brush Does the hack work? YES!! The concealer was a bit drying after this, but if I use a dewy spray or foundation on top of it, it will bring it back to life! Did I like the result? For the most part yes. Since the concealer ended up being dryer, it emphasized my texture a bit more but I would rather have texture than redness. Highly recommend this hack to anyone who needs a little extra coverage from their concealer!
