MY 2020 TOP 5 ✨
I love this prompt from @cherieand was excited to start thinking about some of my favourites from 2020. It was a nice chance to really reflect on the past year, and celebrate my personal self care journey. So here are my favourites! Product - After lots of consideration I decided to choose one of my favourite products for each category of: face, lips and hair! So many great products this year it’s so hard to choose, but I would say for face: BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream was my all time favourite discovery, so effective for my specific concerns (sun damage/milia)! The SUMMER FRIDAYS - Lip Butter Balm was my favourite lip product - I was addicted to the smell + really kept my lips hydrated. Plus for the price, you know I wasn’t gunna misplace this bad boy. And lastly, I would almost consider it a full on addiction how much I loved the OLAPLEX - No. 7 Bonding Oil , seriously this stuff changed my life! Trend - Sustainable packaging, and gorgeous reusable jars were one of my favourite trends. I love this shift towards mindfulness, especially because I often feel like it’s a domino effect where it can start with mindfulness to the environment, than mindfulness of people and surroundings and I believe this is a very important/healthy shift for consumers. My best look - Dark lips, always. Favourite Creators - I couldn’t possibly choose just one, there are so many creators here that are amazing, unique, lovely, smart, creative and genuine - I’m so grateful for this platform! But a few accounts I think you should definitely check out - @heynoonoofor some of the most beautiful makeup looks I’ve ever seen, just absolute works of art! @D.Bennettthis gorgeous human has an amazing page. All encompassing, wonderfully informative and super relatable. @annkrishaAnn’s page is awesome, from Halloween looks to gift guides ... she’s ON it. Not to mention her results posts are super helpful and informative. @Mallory- I love her content, her posts are very relatable and she is just genuinely such a good person! Something I learned - SPF if so important! APPLY - than REAPPLY even in the winter. I really like THANK YOU FARMER - Sun Project Water Sun Cream Hope you enjoyed my top 5 ✨💛

Indie Brand Spotlight: Lunar Beauty 🌙
Hello beautiful! I’ve been on an indie brand train lately. I have been loving Glamlite cosmetics and today I played with my new Lunar Beauty Moon Spell palette and my Moon Prism highlighter in Jupiter. For those who don’t know, Lunar Beauty is a brand created by MannyMUA. MannyMUA is a YouTuber who is known for being the one of the first men in the YouTube beauty community. The moon spell palette caught my eye and I bit the bullet and purchase it 😬 I love the packaging! It literally looks like a book and the shade names are all the witches from pop culture. Since that Christmas is around the corner, I decided to do a muted green eyeshadow look using this palette and pair it with a classic red lip. The mattes in this palette performed well. They blended easily and were pigmented. They were no fall outs at all. However, I found the shimmer shades a little too dry and underwhelming. They swatched pretty nicely, but I had to layer it on a couple times on my lids. I have to try this palette a few more times because I only used a few of the shimmer shades. Maybe some perform well better than others? This palette retails for $48 USD and contains 15 shades. I don’t think that is too pricy considering you’re getting 15 shades. One of the reasons why I bought this palette because I wanted to support MannyMUA. If it wasn’t Manny’s brand I think I would have passed. Anyway, packaging passed the vibe check and so did the performance of the eyeshadows. If you want to support Manny, I say go for it, but I think these shades can be easily duped. LUNAR BEAUTY - Moon Spell Color Palette To achieve this look, I used: •Bonnie on the crease and lower lash •Marnie on the outer V and lower lash •Mary on the lids •Fiona on the lower lids •Prue on the inner corner. I LOVE this shade. It’s a purple and pink duo chrome. It doesn’t really show up in the photos, but it’s such a great pop of color •KVD vegan beauty tattoo liner in mad brown KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - KVD VEGAN BEAUTY Tattoo Liner •HoL in Natalia Lite HOUSE of LASHES - Natalia Lite •Lips are from Glamlite holiday foodie box and it is in shade red velvet. What is your favorite indie brand? Xoxo, Francesca 💋
Easy Makeup Routine and Milk Makeup Review
In the past 2 years I’ve made my makeup much more minimal and natural (not to say I don’t go all out for special events though!). Here’s my go to products! PS: I buy most things in mini because they go bad before I’d even come close to finishing them in full size! Plus it’s more travel friendly. ⭐️Milk MAKEUP - Lip + Cheek I have this in the color Werk. I LOVE IT, the color is great and it’s buildable. The reason for 4 stars is that I wish it was a little softer to blend and the smell is not great. TIP: Buy the mini versions! You’ll never get through a large one before it expires/goes bad. ⭐️Milk MAKEUP - Matte Bronzer I believe this comes in one color but it’s great for warming up the face a little. I apply it on my cheek bones, forehead, and sometimes my jawline/sides of nose. I often use this on my eyelids too for a monochromatic look. 4 stars for same reason as the one above. —Both of these products are easy to use and are super travel friendly. You just need your finger tips to apply! 💩Milk MAKEUP - KUSH High Volume Mascara I wanted to love this but after 2 failed tries, I just can’t. I bought the full size version when it first came out but after applying/drying, small black flecks would fall off my lashes onto my face/eyes. Recently I got the mini version for redemption but I still run into the same issues as well as it reactivating and becoming wet due to condensation from my face mask. This guy is just a no go. ⭐️URBAN DECAY - Perversion Mascara My new favorite mascara is this one! It makes my lashes look great and I haven’t had any issues with it! Totally recommend and it builds up nicely in 2-3 coats without making lashes clumpy. ⭐️KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - KVD VEGAN BEAUTY Tattoo Liner No other liner can compare. The brush on this makes the cleanest lines and it lasts all day. My only issue is how shiny it dries down to, I just wish it was more matte! 💩ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Gel It’s too thick and easily becomes clumpy. It looks heavy on the brow hairs and has a chalky finish. For some reason it’s incredibly difficult to take off with makeup remover, I feel like I’m scrubbing my brows off. Stick to Anastasia’s other brow products and pass on this one. I’m considering Glossier’s boy brow. My brows are blondish and not thick so open to recommendations too 😂 These few products make for a quick and easy natural look! I’m still on he hunt for a brow product and highlighter though! Would love to hear anyone else’s natural look favorites!

I tried the instant lip injection from too faced . This is my initial review ... It gave me a tingly feeling as soon as I applied it and lasted for a good amount of 2 hrs.. I had to re apply it after 2 hrs... There is a slight plump in my lips instantly... I tried the tooth brush lip pump technique and a tool for lip plumping... but found this easier than them .. and it gave my lips a glossy finish It smelled a bit like cinnamon... I guess It did not bother me much The products I’m using on my lips in the first pic NEOSPORIN - Overnight Renewal Therapy, White Petrolatum Lip Protectant MAC - Instant Artistry Lip Prep Red Kit In my second pic Too Faced - Lip Injection Lip Gloss KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick The picture color might not be exact because of light , makeup and a filter differences But hopefully the difference is visible in the volume of my lips
This is my quarantine look!

Merry Christmas to Me
So here's my Christmas haul, normally I wouldn't be posting on Christmas Day, but Ontario begins lockdown tomorrow so I am unable to spend it with my partner this year (Long distance relationships am I right? 😭) I've been after a PML palette for a little while but they are so expensive, so I decided I'd purchase the #Pat McGrath Labs - Eye Ecstasy Kit First Edition Limited Release[products]# because it was way cheaper than anything else available on Sephora Canada, and it comes with #Pat McGrath Labs - Crystalline Prismatic Pigment[products]#in Angel Dust and a PAT McGRATH LABS - Fetisheyes Lengthening Mascaramini. I also bought PAT McGRATH LABS - Eyedols Eye Shadowin Gold Standard because it was on sale for $13CAD. I also purchased KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Alchemist Holographic Palettewhich I have been eyeing for YEARS and it was also on sale for $13CAD so I snatched that up as soon as I saw it. The shimmer doesn't show very well in my image but I want you all to know "holographic" is not an exaggeration. I've been experiencing a lot of issues with my skin lately, so I purchased The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HAand The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solutionbecause there's a lot of hype around these products and I'm confident they will help with my specific issues, and I already have The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 which both work well for me. I am excited to try all these products and I will review each of them at some point. P.S. does anyone else collect all the sequins that come in your PML packaging or is it just me?
Are you a holo fan?
I love a holographic shimmer, a color shift, a duochrome. I’m a sucker for them all. Just a collection of holographic inspired products ogx - Kandee Pop Glam Ultra-Hydrating Conditioner this and the shampoo that go with it are my favorite. They smell so sooooo good. And the scent stays. I actually hadn’t used regular shampoo/condition in a couple years but broke my routine just for this scent. Now I’m hooked. It’s great for coaxing a wave out too. KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Alchemist Holographic Palette eh. Pretty and fun. You aren’t wearing it everyday so who cares beyond that. It’s cool as hell. LUSH - Groovy Kind Of Love Bath Bomb I could go broke buying all the Lush bath bombs. This one is no exception. Smells amazing. The color can sometimes stain your skin though, it’s hit or miss. GLAMGLOW - Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer this is one of those products that I can’t ever tell if I love it or hate it. It smells good. Has a good texture. Sometimes I’ll wear instead of moisturizer and I feel like a shimmery oil slick. I think it’s better dabbed on dry spots. I have it in Nude Glow Rare Beauty - Always an Optimist Illuminating Primer URBAN DECAY - URBAN DECAY Single Eyeshadow I would buy every dang duo chrome color Urban Decay made I love these so much! These 2 are Tonic and Lounge. BECCA - Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter I use this alllllll the time as a highlight for the inner corner of my eyes or to give my lips an extra pop. It’s way too shimmery for all over though. #Doll Face Beauty - hologram prismatic lip gloss[products]#[FourStars] perfect holographic color. Sheer shimmery blue. A little sticky and doesn’t last long.

DIY COLOR CORRECTING MAKEUP ✨💄🦋
Hey guys! What’s up? Today, I thought I’d do a little experiment: I wanted to try making my own color correcting concealer. I just really wanted to know if it was possible to correct my skin with what I already have. So, if you’re wondering how I made this work, it’s simple. I used the ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Subculture Eyeshadow Palette and MORPHE - Hint Hint Skin Tint in the shade “Ivory”. The Subculture palette has the perfect selection of colors for this. I used Roxy (peach disguises dark spots on fair to light skin), Untamed (green neutralizes redness and helps conceal blemishes), Edge (yellow combats discolorations such as broken capillaries and age spots), and Rowdy (purple brightens dullness and counteracts sallow tones). Because my biggest issues are redness and dark circles around my eyes (who else doesn’t sleep well?). I used my Roxy and Untamed mixtures to counteract those colors. Depending on the depth of the eyeshadow colors you choose, you may use more or less of your foundation to create the right color for your skin tone. If you’re just looking to do some color correcting maybe once or twice, I’d definitely suggest trying this out. It was so much fun and it’s totally customizable to your skin! After I had my colors all blended out, I wanted to know what it would look like under a full face of makeup! A list of all the products I used to create my final look: LANCÔME - Teint Idole Ultra Long Wear Foundation in 110 C. I like this foundation for its medium-full coverage. It’s also very breathable and doesn’t dry my skin out or cause my sensitive skin too much irritation. Too Faced - Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Concealer in “Cloud.” Yes, I am as pale as a cloud. This concealer is so full coverage that I don’t think I need to color correct under it. If you need full coverage concealer, this is definitely worth a try. L'ORÉAL - Unlimited Bendable Mascara (I didn’t see an option for it, but mine is actually Darkest Brown) this mascara is really great at separating and lengthening and I actually had someone ask me if I had eyelash extensions when I wore it, one day. e.l.f. - SRSLY Satin Lipstick in Crème. I’ve seen MannyMua use this color a lot recently, and I really wAnted to try it out. COLOURPOP - Super Shock Highlighter in Flexitarian. Glossier. - Boy Brow + Brow Flick Duo in Brown. KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Ink Liner in Mad Max Brow Tarte Park Avenue Princess Contour Palette. (Was this limited edition? I can’t seem to find it anywhere.)
KVD vegan beauty Eyeliner and Colourpop
Holy grail, this eyeliner is so easy to use, it doesn’t dry off after a lot of uses and its the darkest black one I found in the market. The colourpop pop matte lip, works amazing but it does start to dry off and kinda clumps if you don’t use it often. I do love a good red color and this one is eye catching for sure 💋 plus who can’t beat the colourpop price!!!

Easy and fast doll Halloween makeup
This fun makeup is super easy to copy and gender neutral! All you need are a few products and about 10 minutes! 1 - Apply powder to the entire face with the smashbox - Halo Hydrating Perfecting Mineral Powder Foundation . This will give you a nice, clean base to work off of and the powder foundation won’t feel heavy on the skin. It also won’t clog pores either. 2 - Using the KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Dagger Tattoo Liner Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner , line your upper lid as close to the lash line as possible with a semi thick line. I like this liquid liner because my eyelids get oily and this liner doesn’t budge! *it’s also waterproof 3 - Apply NYX - Jumbo Eye Pencil in white to your lower lid, lashes and orbital bone making a circle. Apply white powder on top to set if you want. The nyx jumbo pen is super cheap, but great quality. The liner is a nice creamy consistency that you can blend out or just use as it. $4.50 4 - With the KVD liner, draw on fake lashes and line the fake bottom eyelid. 5 - Apply a light pink, peach or red blush in a circular motion to the cheeks. 6 - Add fake freckles over the blush with the KVD Liner. 7 - Line your Cupid’s bow and lower lip with KVD liner. 8 - Fill in lips with a bright color of your choice! #cheriepartner #halloweenmakeuptutorial #halloweenmakeup
Debbie Thornberry Halloween Make-Up 🖤🧡
As promised from yesterday’s post (if you haven’t seen it go check it out I have a tutorial on how to do this hair) here is the make up inspiration for Debbie Thornberry. I grew up with The Wild Thornberrys amongst other great cartoons from the late 90s and early 2000s. Debbie was my favorite character on the show. When I got my TIGI - A Wave We Go Adjustable Deep Waver and used it for the first time she was immediately what popped into my head. Base: For the base I started off with the laura mercier - Hydrating Pure Canvas Primer purely because my skin has been a little drier with the weather change. This is a must for dry skin. It has a lightweight cream formula that adds hydration without being too heavy. Plus it’s silicone free (which doesn’t bother me but I know it’s important to some people). Then I used my favorite ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation in the shade 1N0. Afterwards I went in with my new laura mercier - Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Concealer in the shade .5 N. I’m obsessed with this stuff! It has the coverage of Shape Tape without being so heavy. It’s very creamy and opaque. It’s been a huge winner for me lately. Then I set everything with the laura mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder and laura mercier - Secret Brightening Powder for Under Eyes Eyes: Debbie doesnt really wear much make up so I decided to keep it really simple. I used the KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Dagger Tattoo Liner Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner to draw a wing as her eye shape is very angular. I used the benefit - BADgal BANG! 24 Hour Eye Pencil in my waterline and the benefit - Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara to finish off the eyes. I kept the brows pretty simple too only using the benefit - Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel in shade 4.5 for some color. Blush/Bronzer: To me it doesn’t look like Debbie wears blush or bronzer but I wanted to update the look a little so I did. I used the third shade in the NYX - Highlight & Contour Pro Palette for my contour. It’s a really nice, cool toned contour that blends out perfectly on the skin. I also mixed the two blushes from the HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Face Palette and placed them on the apples of the cheeks to brighten up the face. Lips: For lips I chose the stila - Shine Fever Lip Vinyl in Turbo. With the time period of the show I didn’t imagine liquid lipsticks would be a huge thing so I decided to go with more of a gloss. This lip vinyl is a perfect opaque gloss with a mauve tone to it. It’s definitely not transfer proof and will slide around if you’re not careful (definitely not mask friendly).

Since I was a girl, I have liked goth makeup, especially the movie《The Addams Family》. The heroine Morticia Addams is so mysterious and charming. I found an amazing makeup transformation tutorial video on YouTube -- MORTICIA ADDAMS Super Easy Halloween Makeup Tutorial. My appearance have a lot in common with the Youtuber Kayla Hagey, from skin tone to facial features. Especially we are all fighting with acne. I highly recommend people like me to follow the video to learn some makeup tips. Here I have take a screenshot of some key points, hope you can feel this huge change. The core of facial makeup is the extremely pale skin. Here she used Make Up ForEver Ultra HD foundation #Y215 & Manic Panic white foundation & KVD White Out concealer. Charming eyes designed from KVD Shade + Light Eyeshadow Palette (also used for contour) & OFRA Must Have Mattes eyeshadow palette & KISS NY Pro Magical Ink Eyeliner. Lips like bloody red, liquid lipstick #401 from MUF. Then put on a straight black wig and you will become your favorite movie character.
IS THE KAT VON D SHADE + LIGHT EYE SHADOW PALLETTE WORTH IT?
Is the Kat Von D pallette really worth the price? The shade + light palette on Amazon is £60, but with the amount of dupes there is, should you buy it? The shades in the palette create a great look for glam or natural eyeshadow, but the colours are basic and can most certainly be found cheaper with similar formula. Without a doubt the palette which came out in 2015 which created 'hype' is highly pigmented and has a brilliant blendable formula. Some shades have alot of fallout too. The packaging for the shade + light pallet is beautiful and is very protective. Using this pallette I did a makeup look using shades solar, latinus, succubus and liberatus. -First I used shade succubus as a base. -Then I used latinus in my crease and blended up into the brow bone. -After I put shade solas in my deep crease after applying shade liberatus on the outer side of my lid -Finally put concealer on the inner/medium part of the lid, apply fox eyeliner and mascara For this I used basic affordable eyebrushes from Amazon and an urban decay double sided brush. HOWEVER! There’s a dupe made by revolution. The shades are identical along with the formula! Compare to Kat Von D shade + light pallet, there is no fallout unless the brush applied with is tapped. The packaging looks cheap, but you pay for what you get. Both pallets are almost the same except for the packaging. But overall I believe that the revolution pallet is likely be more worth buying the makeup revolution pallet if you’re on a budget.
Two hits and a miss!
Today we’ll talk about two hits for me and one that was a definite miss for me. 🤎KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Super Pomade Vegan Eyeliner, Shadow & Brow Pigment 🤎 So this product is a definite hit. I have it in shade medium brown. The pomade itself is beautifully pigmented and covered all my blonde hairs, which are so blonde that they look nonexistent on my pale skin. In addition to that it dries down really well in about a minute and doesn’t budge throughout the day no matter how oily I get. It’s incredibly easy to work with and easy to cover up with concealer if you make a mistake. I will forever be re-purchasing this item because of the quality. The packaging is stunning as well. 💚Juvia's PLACE - The Tribe Eyeshadow Palette 💚 This product is another hit. The pigments in this shadow palette are stunning. They’re highly pigmented and easy to blend and while they might be a little powdery when you’re dipping your brush it’s very easy to use that excess powder on your eyes. I find that I can use these powders even if I don’t set my eyelids after priming and I still don’t get any creasing. The packaging is super simple and while it doesn’t have a mirror and I wish it did this is a great palette anyway. This whole brand is a holy grail, btw!! 🤍HANK & HENRY - Lip Love Lux Lipstick 🤍 This product was a miss for me. It has great pigment it applies beautifully and it doesn’t transfer very badly which is phenomenal for a lipstick but after having it on for a little over an hour and a half it dries out my lips so badly that they peel. I really wanted to love this lipstick. The packaging is killer the lipstick itself has a beautiful nude I have it in the shade sext. But because of how drying it is I just can’t wear it for long. When it does dry it emphasizes the lines on my lips as well so it just looks really drying too. I have also found that when I layer it with lipgloss it does help but then I have issues with transfer and it breaks down and clumps around the edges of my mouth. I hope you guys enjoy this review of these products and I hope that you can try them out for yourself as well!!
Favorite Product of the Month
My Favorite Go-To product for my creative looks is the KVD Vegan Beauty 24-Hour Super Brow Long-wear Pomade. I love that the product(s) applies smoothly and does not move whatsoever once it dries. KVD Pomade is my go-to product for graphic liner because I can create multiple colorful looks, easily mix colors together, and it doesn’t crack when you layer (which is key for liner looks). I also use the (non-colorful) pomades for my brows if i’m going out because i know it won’t go anywhere and smudge off. I discovered it years ago on Instagram when they first launched it, but I recently got sent it to me a couple weeks ago and i’ve been using it since then. The pomades are all super creamy and BEYOND pigmented. For the liner, I actually use small detail painting brushes that you can get a Micheals or any art store. A big tip I noticed that’s really helpful for me when i apply it as liner, I like to scrap product out the container and put it on my hand or a silver lip platter and I like to warm up the product with the brush so it becomes a lot more creamier and activates the product. The KVD Vegan Beauty 24-Hour Super Brow Long-Wear Pomade are all $20 and well worth every penny. I definitely recommend to anyone who struggles with their liner or brows staying on. It does not budge!! #CheriePartner #adKVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Super Pomade Vegan Eyeliner, Shadow & Brow Pigment

The BEST concealer I’ve ever used | 💘😍👀
KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Lock-It Concealer Crème I’ve been using the same concealer for YEARS. Crazy, right? So many of us like to hop around and try new ones, but once I found this baby, I couldn’t let her go. The Kat Von D line became controversial when it’s namesake did, but has now become KVD Vegan Beauty and is unattached from the tattooed icon. I seriously love so many products from this line, and have been using them for so long, I can’t imagine my life without them! The Lock-It Concealer Creme is my #1 holy grail when it comes to foundation and concealer. What I love about it: ✨ I’ve always had a hard time finding concealer and foundation that matches me perfectly, but the shade range in this formula is pretty great. I totally recognize that there will never be one brand that makes something that’ll work for everyone, but I do find their range to be better than most. This stuff matches me perfectly. ✨ The formula is medium-high coverage, super buildable, but isn’t heavy feeling and won’t crease when set properly. I always use this after foundation but before powder, and have never had a pesky under-eye crease, even after a long day at work! ✨ This concealer is suitable for all skin types - I’ve been able to use it on dry patches in the winter, oily T-zones, and my super sensitive areas without any trouble. I always feel confident that my skin will look great when I have this on. ✨ KVD Vegan Beauty is paraben, phthalate, and cruelty-free, and is a vegan brand. I know, I know, there are SO many good concealers out there, and you bet I’ve been wanting to try some. But honestly? I have such a good relationship with this stuff, I can’t see myself giving it up anytime soon…even for a day! 😋 What’s your #1 base product? Do you like the KVD line?! 📝
SLAY at home ✨💄🏠
The way I slay at home is with a bold, exaggerated cut crease with a neon ombre and custom false lashes. I have included a list of ALL the products featured in this makeup look, however, I will be focusing more on the eyes, and how I achieve this look. Firstly, priming the eye before shadow application is great. For this, I use the Revolution Conceal & Define full coverage foundation in F11 to create a lighter base for my whole eye. After I have seat that, I begin with the B Perfect Cosmetics Carnival III palette using the color Reef first to create the overall shape of where I want my crease. When I’m comfortable with that, I go in and deepen the crease with a smaller brush blending both Lagoon and The Deep. One thing that I truly love most about this palette is the SATURATION of the colors, as a dark-complected individual, I find it nice knowing that I don’t have to use a lot of product to achieve a bold and impactful eyeshadow application. Once I have achieved that, I go in with a clean flat brush and apply the Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer in Whiteout to Prime the lid, and create a clean crease. I like this product a lot because it is REALLY white, and dries very fast with a nice matte finish. Once that is dry I layer in a bit more of Reef, and Lagoon, blending them outward. I then add the Give Face Cosmetics poly pigment in neon green blending outward away from the inner corner of the eye to create a nice ombre. I then further define the crease by taking my Nyx Epic Ink liquid liner in black and trace the outward line of my cut crease to make it even sharper. Starting above the center of the iris and working out. I then take the Nyx Epic Ink liquid liner in white, and trace the outer corner of the crease starting at the inner corner of the eye, and pulling it back until it meets the black liner. I finished that with a sharp black winged liner using the Nyx Cosmetics Epic ink liner in black, apply my YSL mascara in black, and then top it off with custom-built lashes.

Kat Von D
Look, I’m not here to get into the drama surrounding Kat Von D. I don’t believe in cancel culture. Plus, this brand has since been rebranded as KVD Vegan Beauty. Either way, I love this eye palette. I’m a neutral girl at heart so when I saw this, it spoke to me. It’s layer out perfectly so I can easily create a work-friendly look without thinking too hard. The formula is nice - I think they blend easily and don’t end up looking patchy or weird. The packaging is so stunning and that is the one thing I’ll miss about the Kat Von D brand - she really is an amazing artist and I loved the designs of her packaging. I’m not even sure if you can still get this baby but if you can - I think it’s worth picking up! KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette

Kat von D True Portrait Foundation
I’m not sure how I feel about this foundation. I purchased it my shade according to the Sephora shade finder (light 021), but I don’t think it’s a great match. And I’m not sure how I feel about the texture. This is a liquid foundation (very watery) that dries down to a powder finish. You can’t apply this with a makeup sponge because it will soak up all the product, but a regular makeup brush may leave streaks. I did try to apply this with my fingers and hated the end result. I feel mike maybe if I learn how to apply this foundation, I will like it more, but for now it has been sitting in my drawer.
KVD VEGAN BEAUTY-True Portrait Medium Coverage Shake Foundation
The product: notes of patchouli, wood and cinnamon. Warm and spicy family. Experience: I love its slightly masculine smell but at the same time very feminine, it lasts approximately 5 hours and its bottle is very pretty. The first time I smelled I had to ask what perfume did she wear. 👍🏻👎🏻: like. Price: $85 (100 mL) KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Sinner Eau de Parfum

Kat Von D Studded KISS Lipstick in Outlaw
KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick This lipstick is highly pigmented and has a creamy finish that isn’t too drying. Color is Outlaw. The tube is so cute! Black ridged tube and the KVD logo embossed in the lid and also on the lipstick itself. This color is a bold red that is warm toned and really pretty. Opaque and bright!

Pretty but not the best
As a whole I’m not a fan of kat but when this palette came out it looked so pretty I couldn’t resist . The pigment on this is pretty decent but I definitely had to go back in to really get the pop of color I wanted . Also some of the colors don’t blend very well and can get muddy . #katvond #makeup #eyeshadow #palette
KVD VEGAN BEAUTY-10th Anniversary Eyeshadow Palette
Kat Von D Mascara💫￼￼
I bought this mini size from Sephora for $13.00. I try to always by minis to try out first and not waste money. The consistency is thick but not so too thick that it clumps up on your lashes and makes them stick together. Definitely gives my eyelashes lots of volume and length and makes my eyes pop. The brush I feel is a little too big and makes a little difficult applying. It is Easy to remove though and feels light weight on your lashes and doesn’t smudge. I gave it 4 stars because I like it a lot but I’m not totally blown away. #Kat Von D - Go Big or Go Home Mascara[products]#[FourStars]
