Minty eyes and dewy skin 🌿
It was cloudy day today and I wanted to experiment with greens, I wanted to do something bold and bright. I usually never reach for greens but I have a colorful eyeshadow palette and looking at the colors males me want to use them. I ended up with a dewy minty eye look. For primer (not pictured) I used touch in sol glassy balm primer. It hydrate my skin and makes it look dewy. touch in SOL - Pretty Filter Glassy Skin Balm For foundation I used the pūrlisse youth glow vitamin C CC cream spf 50 in Fair. I got this in my Ipsy bag a couple months ago and I’ve been loving it. pūrlisse - Youth Glow Vitamin C CC Cream SPF 50 Concealer I used a cult classic, NARS radiant creamy concealer in vanilla. This is one of my favorites. It gives me a natural look. NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer For brows I used my absolute favorite brow pencil and it’s the elf instant brow pencil. I’ve been using this for years and it’s the one I always come back to. Super affordable too! e.l.f. - Instant Lift Brow Pencil BH cosmetics take me back to Brazil palette- I love this palette. So many different colors to choose from and really pigmented. bh - Take Me Back to Brazil 35 Color Pressed Pigment Palette I used my essence eyeliner pen in young and free (pastel yellow). It’s a super cute color. I decided to add some dots to the outer edge of my green eyeshadow. essence - essence Eyeliner Pen I used milk makeup kush mascara and it’s really nice. It separates my lashes and makes them look longer too. Milk MAKEUP - KUSH High Volume Mascara I used Sephora collection gel lip liner in creme de la creme to line my lips a little bit. SEPHORA COLLECTION - Rouge Gel Lip Liner For my lips I used glossier’s vinylic lip in the shade disco. It’s like a terra cotta/orangey tint to it. It’s my first time using it and I’m already in love. It also has some shine to it so my lips won’t be dehydrated. Glossier. - Vinylic Lip High Shine Lacquer For blush I used glossier’s cloud paint in dawn, it’s a orangey sunny coral color. I used a little bit of this and it’s super pretty. I love it. Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color

Am I enough?
I doubt myself. I doubt my skills. I sometimes don’t think I’m beautiful. I find myself questioning if I’m feminine enough or intelligent enough. I break myself out of this by focusing who I am and who I am meant to be. I say my affirmations, pray to God for clarity and move on. I also do my makeup to cope with everything. It may not be as physical as yoga and not as thorough as therapy but it’s my own form of thereapy. With every stroke of the brush, I say to myself that I am beautiful. I am feminine. I am smart and no one can doubt my skills! I am enough. So are you! Makeup used: Milk MAKEUP - Hydro Grip Primer FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation L.A.

Some NARS love 💕
I love me some good ol NARS. I received the NARS - Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil originally as samples. I loved the color and how long they lasted on my lips. It became a repurchase. The NARS - Powermatte Lip Pigment was also a sample. I love how the wand made application easy. However, the color that was sent seemed way too dark for my lips (I’m more of a pink and bold red lip kind of girl). But that is just my own personal opinion. I just received a sample of their gloss in my recent Sephora haul, results TBD. I’ll let you guys know how it goes. I do love this brand and use other products of theirs. What’s something you love by them? 🙏🏻❤️

A COMBO I LIVE BY
I get my dark circles genetically so there is really no way to get rid of them. Some days they are agreeable but most days they aren’t. I also struggle with my really red eyelids, so when I found these products they became a stable. I’ve tried other concealers but nothing truly hides them as well as I would like. PRODUCTS IN PICTURES: SEPHORA COLLECTION - Bright Future Color Correctors I love this because it cancels out the dark circles. It is really messy so I took off a star. I got in shade melon. NARS - Soft Matte Complete Concealer I use this after the color corrector. It is full coverage and fully covers everywhere applied. I heard about this on TikTok and literally love it. I use shade light 2.6. BECCA - Under Eye Brightening Corrector I also heard about this on TikTok and I only apply it on the inner part of my eye to give it a bright ring effect. It also hides any signs of my dark circles that show through. OTHER PRODUCTS USED: REN CLEAN SKINCARE - Perfect Canvas Clean Primer Use this before I apply my makeup and pat it in. Use 3 drops. MAYBELLINE - TattooStudio Brow Tint Pen in shade 360 medium brown. Gives hairlike effect. I use to fill in my arch. URBAN DECAY - All Nighter Long Lasting Setting Spray Jumbo & Travel Duo setting spray. Keeps my makeup on all day.
Sephora Sale: tried & true with some new! 🛍
If you haven’t yet stopped by Sephora for the holiday sale, make sure you do! The sale ends 11/9 and Beauty Insiders get 10% off, VIBs have 15% off, and Rouges have 20% off! Shop soon to take advantage of the sale for holiday shopping or a treat for yourself! TATCHA - The Liquid Silk Canvas: Featherweight Protective Primer - I absolutely love this primer! As a person with combination skin, I try to not use heavy primers so that my pores aren’t clogged and my makeup doesn’t last, but this primer is so light. In addition to making your skin look great by blurring pores and lines while reducing oil, the floral fragrance and packaging are beautiful. On light makeup days, I love wearing this, spot concealer, and a light round of setting powder as a base. Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Toner - This is a new find for me that I picked up the other day and have already seen incredible results from! My typical combination skin has been dry in patches on my forehead and nose making it hard for me to wear foundation and or see any effects from my other skincare products. I decided to change my toner after seeing some reviews of this online and I’m so glad I picked it up. The fragrance is minimal, if any at all, and the hydrating properties are simply incredible. My skin feels smooth and the dry flakes have vanished over two days. Yesterday, I was able to wear my foundation for the first time since the summer without my skin feeling tight or having to slather on moisturizer. If you struggle with dry skin, take advantage of the squalane in this toner to revamp your skin! NARS - Soft Matte Complete Concealer - I purchased this concealer after hearing Mikayla rave about it on tik tok and needing a replacement for my benefit - Benefit Boi-Ing Industrial Strength Concealer that I’ve used for about a year! In comparing the NARS and Benefit, the NARS concealer has about twice the product! I’m incredibly pleased with this concealer’s ability to blend into the skin, be matte while not drying, and the pot packaging! If you’re looking for something to coverup a spot here and there, this is it. fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Oil-Infused Serum - I have an undying love for fresh products that began with thefresh - Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 about two years ago. Since then, I have tried thefresh - Rose Face Mask , fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Toner , fresh - Lotus Anti- Aging Daily Moisturizer , and many more. This product is no exception and is one that is hydrating while not greasy. I’m totally aware that oil in the name can be unappealing, but it provides a nice healthy glow, softens, soothes, and absorbs so quickly. This is great face serum/oil that I recommend to people with dry, combination, normal skin and those who are not sensitive to fragrance.

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 ☀️
My New Fav tinted moisturizer is NARS - Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 I do layer another SPF underneath because it's my understanding that moisturizer already mixed with SPF dilutes the SPF. I wear the shade Malaga for that bronzed look and I love the coverage. I do set it with translucent powder because it can make my Tzone oily without setting it with powder and setting spray. I complete the look by adding blush, concealer bronzer, lashes and a nude lip. I have been turning to tinted moisturizer more than ever because if I do have to wear a mask I don't seem to break out like when I wear foundation under a mask. What are your favorite tinted moisturizers/ tinted sunscreen?? Has the pandemic changed your makeup routine???
Faye Wang Sunburn Glam Makeup
Fun, Easy, and Semi Work + School Appropriate Halloween Makeup to Do at Home #2 Faye Wang had this iconic sunburn and edgy look on the cover of her 1998 album. I’m giving it a try and it looks surprisingly cute?! But of course I toned it down because well, still have class today lol. The star of this look is of course, the blush. Basically you apply blush from center of the nose bridge out to your temples, creating a sunburn effect. I brought some blush and bronzer all the way up to my forehead and on my entire eyelids. I also dabbed a bit of a subtle liquid highlighter in my cheeks and nose bridge. For eyes I just kept things simple. Strong, dark brows like Faye Wang did to give definition to the face. I used a dark brown shadow along my upper lash line and my outer corners, then a black eyeliner to deepen the lash line. I used a golden shimmer shade along my lower lash line. No mascara. For lips, I used a nude/neutral shade suitable for my skin tone and dabbed a bit of gloss on top.

High-end foundation comparison 💁🏼♀️ PT 1
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone! I wanted to share swatches of my new foundations that I got at Sephora. - ￼ARMANI beauty - Luminous Silk Foundationin shade 3.75 - this shade is just a little too tan, so I'll mix some too faced btw foundation in shade cloud if I'm wearing it (the shade I use to lighten up foundation) and I love it because its so smooth and blends out like a dream. It reminds me of the NARS - Natural Radiant Longwear Foundationbc of the thickness and they blend out similarly. - ￼beautyblender - BOUNCE Liquid Foundationin shade 1.50C - felt nice when I blended it, but my only problem with it is the bottle/container, since it really shoots out and if you push the button on the back (the pump) you have to press slowly even tho it requires a bit of force and you might be able to get a partial pump. Also, I don't like that the foundation can't be pumped directly onto a blender or brush - it goes right on the bottle & makes it dirty, plus you might have extra. In addition, the surface of the bottle might not be as sterile or clean (of course depending on if you clean it - but for example using the foundation after sitting out on a counter or in a makeup bag) as a sponge or brush. - ￼Charlotte Tilbury - Airbrush Flawless Longwear Foundationin shade 2 cool - I really love how this foundation felt on my skin (even in the small area) and I feel like it's an equivalent of the armani foundation - like in a foundation match finder. - ￼DIOR - BACKSTAGE Face & Body Foundationin shade 1 cool rosy - I like how the bottle is a squeeze bottle and not a pump one bc it's different and it seems like the product's packaging design is meant to be more hands-on and you can be more specific with applying it than a pump bottle foundation. I noticed when swatching that it's a little more liquidy than the others - specifically the armani one. - ￼ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundationin shade 1C0 shell - this is the foundation I've been most excited for bc of all the great reviews and how it's a holy grail for many. I have to say this one matches my skin tone the best and blends out very smoothly too. ￼- HOURGLASS - Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stickin shade vanilla - this one's very pink and slightly darker than my skin tone, but that's ok, since I can use it for a light contour. Like I've said about lots of these is that they blend out smoothly, same w/this one Already had: - ￼Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation in shade 140C - one of my faves ￼- Too Faced - Born This Way Natural Finish Foundation in shade cloud - a little too light ￼- Too Faced - Born This Way Natural Finish Foundation in shade seashell - slightly too dark but it's fine ✨✨PT 2 coming soon
My Combo Skin Foundation Solution!
Finding the perfect foundation can be a struggle. If you weren’t blessed with perfect skin you know the struggle is actually real and sometimes it really sucks. My t-zone can be an oil slick while my cheeks are dry as a desert. I sometimes deal with drastic weather changes in my area so what my skin needs one day can be quite the opposite the next day! Now, everything starts with a solid skincare routine, then you need a good primer, but today we are just talking about foundation. Catch me later for the other topics 😉 I have tried so many foundations and have been so disappointed until I just realized that I am going to have to mix two different formulas. It’s actually smart to have a few different formulas on hand for different needs and climates. I don’t know why for so long I thought I just needed one foundation. I feel like Goldilocks when it comes to foundation because one will be too matte and another one melts off my face. It’s already a struggle finding a color match, so finding the right formula can make the battle even worse. Here is what I did! NARS - Soft Matte Complete Foundation recently came out and I had to try it. In the summer this will be my go to! But, for fall/winter I really needed something just a little more hydrating. NARS - Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation was perfect for the job. The shades in each formula are practically identical so that made things easy. I mix 1/3 of the Natural Radiant and 2/3 of the Matte and at the end of the day my makeup is still in place and I don’t look too dry or too oily in any areas. It also holds up fantastic under a mask as long as you use a good setting powder and spray. Thanks for reading and I hope this helps with your combination skin battles! ❤️😘

👁 No Smudge Eye Makeup 💦
The eye makeup can easily dropping of due to oily eyelids or the powder texture of eye shadow. This is why nowadays I like to start with the eye base cream - Eye primer. For the longest time, I used concealer on my lids as a primer. I also find that some eyeshadow colours that normally don't look obvious or as pigmented on my skin tone were definitely more pigmented and obvious. Some may have the concern whether we should apply primer before or after the liquid foundation, or directly apply the eye shadow? And where and how should we apply it? I want to share my experience of most effective method and products that makes my eye makeup stay for whole day. Eye primer can improve the dullness of the eyes, make the eye shadow's color rendering. It also contributes to long lasting makeup throughout the day. Generally, applying eye primer is an indispensable and essential step in the overall makeup routine. Let's talk about the steps for eye primer. Compared with skin on the rest of our face, the area round eyes is very fragile. This is also why, we need to have an individual seperate process for skincare and makep before applying makeup around eyes. Here is my recent favorite eye primer. It goes on translucent which was really a plus. And It takes a few minutes to try down and leaves a smooth finish. NARS - Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base One thing really amazing about this product is that it is also waterproof. I did wear it in a wet rainy day and my eye makeup still stay in place without creasing or smudging. Here is the few steps how I use this primer for my waterproof eye makeup - First of all eye primer, primer, and even cream-like eye primer. These products works best if you did your skincare properlly. Moisturizing works. If you have enough time, it would be best to make an eye mask -Next, apply the eye primer evenly on the eyelids, including the inner corner and even along the roots of the eyelashes since the root of the eyelashes is an important part of eyeliner which is also where it can easily get oily and smash. -Wait 3 before applying eye makeup and finish uo with some lose powder to set. Here I do not suggest setting spray. Setting spray are moisture and can easily mess up with mascaras and other eye product, and a translucent powder would work best in this case.
My true destiny: Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base
Age: 23 Eye color: Dark Brown Skin Tone: Fair Skin Type: Combination, dry on cheeks and oily in T-zone and eyelids I don’t think I needed an eyeshadow base or primer until I found that my eyeshadow would always disappear because of the “crease” on my eyelids. I asked my bestie and she told me that a good primer might be useful to prevent this awkward situation, so I started to look for good eye base products. I firstly had tried UD shadow primer which has the most reviews (almost 7.3k) on Sephora online shop, but it disappointed me as I would keep shedding tears after applying it around my eyes… I went to the Sephora in down town Santa Monica, and the sales recommended NARS’s smudge proof eyeshadow base for me. I bought it for $26 with a 20% discount. The effect is amazing. Actually, it completely changed my eye makeup!!! This was definitely the missing piece. I bought the original color which is almost invisible when applied. It’s fragrance-free. The texture is very lightweight and it creates a seamless canvas which keeps cream and powder eye color looking brilliant, fresh, and just-applied all day. I usually sweep a thin layer onto my eyelids and blend it with my fingertips. It blends well and dries in just seconds. For me, I prefer to fill in my eyebrows in the gap, then follow with the eyeshadows. You should believe me that even in summer, you will have your eyeliners and shadows in their place after a whole day out. You can see from the pics I attached, it’s obvious that the color and persistence are both different with & without this primer. With this lovely stuff, I never worry about if my eyeliner is smudging or my eyeshadow is moving. It “locks” my eye makeups in place. One piece could last for 6-7 months if used daily. I’ve already used up two pieces. Definitely my must-repurchase. I CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT THIS MAGICAL PRODUCT!

10 MINUTE NATURAL MAKEUP LOOK
I’ve finally got my 10-minute makeup look down - it’s pretty close to a no-makeup makeup look, but that’s why I like it. It’s hard to tell that I’m wearing makeup in the first place, but I know that I definitely look a little more polished than if I was barefaced. One of my tips for having a fast makeup routine is using a sunscreen that doubles as primer - it means you don’t have to apply primer as a separate step, speeding up the process! Here’s the order I apply my 10-minute routine in: ➡️ Foundation I use a thinnish layer of Wet n Wild Photofocus foundation, applying with the ELF Selfie Brush. This brush alone makes the process so quick - it blends foundation out so quickly! I apply a thinner layer so that any redness is hidden on my skin, but my natural freckles still show through. This isn’t a high coverage routine, and for on the go, this foundation is matte enough to go without powder. wet n wild - Photofocus Liquid Matte Foundation e.l.f. - Selfie Foundation Blurring Brush ➡️ Eyes I love using bronzer as eyeshadow because it adds a little definition to the eyes, without needing the precision of a proper eyeshadow look. I like to use Nars Laguna, and I’ve also combined it with mascara to open up my eye. If there’s one step I never skip, it’s mascara! It helps my eyes look much more awake and makes the biggest difference in this look. NARS - Blush/Bronzer Duo L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara ➡️ Brows I’ll fill in my brows a little bit, but a too-defined brow doesn’t suit the more natural nature of this look. I use a micropencil like the one from Maybelline, then set my brows with a brow gel. Lately, I’ve been using the Benefit 24hr Brow setter! I actually don’t like Brow Setter that much, it’s much wetter than I prefer for a brow gel. I find I can easily accidentally put too much on at once so I have to be careful. To make this routine even speedier (if I’m short on time) I would use a tinted brow gel so that there’s colour added to the brow without needing to use a pencil! MAYBELLINE - Brow Ultra Slim Defining Eyebrow Pencil benefit - 24-Hour Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel ➡️ Lips In the interest of speed, I also don’t use a coloured lip product - I’ll just go for lip gloss or lip balm. LUCAS' PAPAW REMEDIES - Lucas' Papaw Ointment Lip Balm It’s a really understated look, but for me it’s enough to feel more polished and ready for the world in just ten minutes! :)
SUMMER 2020 RED LIP MAKEUP LOOK
Hey fam, here's a look that I never get sick of, especially for summer. I actually wore this exact look for my wedding last week 💍 It was perfect for the short ceremony at the city hall and formal enough for a nice dinner after. IMO you can never go wrong with simple eye makeup and a classic cool toner red lip! Here are the products I used: wet n wild - Photofocus Liquid Matte Foundation This is such a great affordable foundation that just works. I don't find it's very high coverage but that's exactly what I prefer. e.l.f. - Selfie Foundation Blurring Brush This makeup brush makes putting on foundation SO fast. It's actually converted me from makeup sponges back to brushes! URBAN DECAY - Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion Always makes eyeshadow last so much longer! NARS - Blush/Bronzer Duo I actually don't tend to use this as bronzer, but rather as eyeshadow. It's the perfectly slightly warm brown for a summery wash of colour over the eyelids. L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara This is the most impressed I've been with a Western drugstore mascara for a while! However I do find it does flake a little towards the end of the day. MAYBELLINE - Brow Ultra Slim Defining Eyebrow Pencil I like how thin this is, again it makes everything so quick and easy for a great brow. benefit - 24-Hour Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel It took me a while to learn how to use this for my brows! It's a great brow gel but honestly overpriced for what it is. MAC - Ruby Woo Lip Duo My favourite red lip, ever. My lipstick version is actually from the limited edition Collab that Rihanna did with MAC. the Balm cosmetics - Mary Lou Manizer Luminizer Highlighter i have had this for so long, you can see it's well loved! Its my favourite highlighter, perfect for my skin tone.

Flawless Wedding Makeup Tutorial ⭐️
I just got married this past week, so I thought I would share how I did my makeup for my special day. I was going for a more natural/neutral look and focus on products that would hold up through my tears. My skin tone is fair with pink undertones My skin type is sensitive combo & acne prone ￼￼EYES: SHADOW. The eyes are arguably the stars of the show. Eyes are also so personal—I have hooded eyes so I have to use darker shadows to manipulate my eye shape. I started off with Mac’s Paint Pot in Soft Ochre MAC - Pro Longwear Paint Pot Eyeshadow and set it with the Tartelette in Bloom Palette tarte - Tartelette In Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette shade “flower child.” Then I went in with “smarty pants” in my crease, creating a dramatic crease since my eyes are hooded. I continued deepening my crease and outer V with the shades “rebel” and “leader,” and blended out the upper edges with “charmer” on my brow bone. I mirrored the blend of “rebel” and “smarty pants” on my lower lash line. I finished off with “funny girl” on my lids! ￼￼EYES: LINER + MASCARA: I feel like eyeshadow always looks a little funny until liner and lashes. I started off by giving myself a super thin line with the Urban Decay BLACK Perversion liner URBAN DECAY - Perversion Waterproof Fine-Point Eye Pen . I have ultimate control since it has a brush tip. Shake before use! Then, I decided to use the Urban Decay Subversion Lash Primer URBAN DECAY - Subversion Lash Primer Deluxe Sample I love this stuff! I finished off my lashes with Nars Climax NARS - Climax Mascara and the primer kept it LOCKED ON. ￼￼FACE: I went a little rogue with my foundation and decided to try a sample I had of the Charlotte Tilbury - Airbrush Flawless Longwear Foundation and I fell in love. With my elf “flawless foundation” brush, I used the shade “1” and it was a little pale for me but I bronzed up using the Fenty powder bronzer FENTY BEAUTY - Sun Stalk'r Instant Warmth Bronzer in the shade “shady biz” and it worked perfectly with the Urban Decay blush brush. Then I went in and blended out the rare beauty blush in “grace” Rare Beauty - Soft Pinch Liquid Blush , and since that is a matte blush I went in with my Becca liquid highlighter on my fingers over it to brighten it up BECCA - Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter . NOTE: I didn’t use any setting spray or powder and makeup stayed on for 12+ hours! ￼￼BROWS: my brows are pretty naturally full so I just lightly filled them in with e.l.f. - Ultra Precise Brow Pencil and e.l.f. - Wow Brow Gel to hold them in place. ￼￼LIPS: I also kept my lips simple since we wore masks all day—essence - Soft Contouring Lipliner all over and chapstick on top. #CheriePartner
Mini Mascara Reviews!
Mascara mini reviews! I love a good fluffy, natural bristled wand that gives good volume. The Nars Climax Mascara and Milk Kush mascara definitely both aim for that. So I thought I would compare these mini’s with mini reviews. The NARS - Climax Mascara definitely dries out quick. I haven’t used it all that much and it’s already almost gone. It gives decent volume but I wish it gave a little more length and could build a little more. It also flakes a too much for my liking. Decent but I definitely wouldn’t pay the full price. The Milk MAKEUP - KUSH High Volume Mascara is definitely my preferred of the two. It’s super volumizing but is also buildable for length. It lasts throughout the day but does have some mild flaking. Less than the Nars. I already bought a full size of the waterproof version at @tjmaxx and I’m excited to try that!
