Best Skin-Finish Foundation for Combination Skin
Finding a skin-finish foundation for combination/oily skin can be frustrating! They all seem either get too oily throughout the day or are waaaaay too matte. So what would the perfect skin-finish foundation be? It would... have a satin, skin-like finish medium, buildable coverage feel lightweight on the skin longwearing And I found the foundation that checks all those boxes, the PAT McGRATH LABS - Sublime Perfection Foundation . The formula is hydrating and a beautiful skin-finish, but it doesn't leave me looking oily! It doesn't feel like your wearing any foundation because it's so lightweight, it blends into the skin like a dream and the coverage is a medium buildable coverage! It's a dream come true. The shade range is equally distributed and covers all shades! I wear this foundation year round and it works no matter if it's 100° or 56°. I think this foundation takes on the primer that you use, which makes it extremely versatile! If you need extra hydration then use a hydrating primer, if your looking to keep oils at bay then a mattifying primer will do that without completely removing the glow from the foundation. With all those positive points I know you're wondering where the "but" is...well it costs $68. It's not the most expensive foundation at Sephora, but it is in the top 10 most expensive. It is 1.18 oz which is a little more than standard in most foundations, but it is a high end foundation so you are paying a bit for the name! Despite the price I will repurchase this foundation, it's looks beautiful on the skin and feels good too! #CheriePartner

Flawless Base! Makeup for Your Skin but Better
Because I spend so much time and energy getting my skin to look even and glowing on its own, I want my makeup base to enhance rather than hide it. This is why light or medium coverage crème products are my go-to for a flawless base! I start out with a cleansed and moisturized face. If I’m going to be outside I’ll also go in with COOLA - Classic Full Spectrum 360 Sun Silk Drops SPF 30 (which I already have a post about!). It adds the perfect dewy base and has no flashback. I let it set for 15 minutes and then start my makeup. To prime, I use TATCHA - The Silk Canvas Protective Primer which is heavenly. It doesn’t clog my pores, and leaves my skin hydrated prepped and smooth for my next steps. If I know it will be hot or humid, I also go in with either thebenefit - The POREfessional Face Primer or thebeautyblender - Pore Minimizing Primer on my T-zone; more oily areas. Neither of these pill if layered with the tatcha primer and compliment it beautifully. Next, I go in and spot treat with concealer. I don’t use foundation! I start with NARS - Soft Matte Complete Concealer around my nose and lips, or any other red areas. I use a brush and pat it on the areas I want to cover, let it sit for a minute, and then blend it out with a medium concealer brush. This gives more coverage without having to layer more product! If I still have discoloration or a particularly red or dark pimple, I go over it with a smaller brush using tarte - Shape Tape Concealer as this is very high coverage. Again I let it sit, then blend. Another trick is using creme products to get that lit-from-within glow! For blush, I love Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color and liquid blush drops fromEM COSMETICS - Color Drops Serum Blush as both of these blend in effortlessly and look like your own skin! Both of these blushes set themselves without the use of powder. For Highlighter, Charlotte Tilbury - Beauty Highlighter Wand is the best in my opinion. It blends it without looking cakey or fake, but adds the dimension of face tune in real life! This also sets itself and doesn’t require power. If contouring, both KKW BEAUTY - Crème Contour Stick (I use Light 1) and the FENTY BEAUTY - Match Stix Matte Skinstick (I use amber!) layer well with the other creme products. I don’t have issues with patching or pilling, and I enjoy how both sit and feel on the skin as creme contours can feel heavy. When set there is no transfer. I set with BECCA - Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder which I’ve raved about before. No flashback, and keeps the dimensions of the creme products. It doesn’t cake on, but adds another layer of blurring perfection!

BEST No-Stick Glosses! 💧Shine for Days
I’m a true gloss addict. I’ve spent a few years trying out tons of glosses from various brands, and these are the top four that I continually reach for and have used the most consistently. Each of them has very few drawbacks, the new glosses on the market are truly game changing! Not sticky or thick, these all glide on like a dream. They’re also clear and look great on all lips! EM COSMETICS - True Gloss Lip Gloss is one of the softest glosses I’ve ever used. Strikingly clear (you can barely see the swatch) it goes on like a pillow and feels more like a moisturizing lip oil or gel than a gloss. It looks like crystal on the lips and makes them look plump without any plumping agents. The smell is a gentle cotton candy but dissipates quickly and tastes like nothing. I can easily use this in the place of lip balm when I need moisturize, and it doesn’t migrate or stick to my hair. This is my daily go to for my purse! This reminds me of dew drops with the texture. SOAP & GLORY - Sexy Mother Pucker Pillow Plump XXL Lip Plumping Gloss is my personal favorite plumping gloss. I use this when I want a natural “no makeup” look, and pair it with blush and lashes. It is a bit glittery and not super clear, more like a frosted vanilla (which, coincidentally is the scent). It also doesn’t migrate and is very thick. I usually wipe the excess off or it can feel a bit thick like something is on your lips, but I love the plump and finish it gives. It also doesn’t make my lips dry after using or uncomfortable due to the plumping. The glitter is not gritty like some other popular formulas which is also a major plus. FENTY BEAUTY - Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer is the traditional gloss. Clear and glassy, it’s a bit thicker and more sticky then em cosmetics— but adds an otherworldly shine that is perfect for pictures and selfies. It smells like candy and leaves you looking like your lips are dripping in glass. Glossier. - Glossier. Lip Gloss is a really nice gloss as well, and one I love to layer over lipstick. It helps blend liner with the lipstick and makes color look so smooth. It’s gently pink, which adds a healthy type of shine to lips that looks natural and not overbearing. It’s not crazy sticky and I love to wear this day to day when I have no other makeup on. It’s also a purse staple with the gentle shine and non sticky moisture it provides. What other makeup products would you love to see me review? 😌

Easy / Flawless Summer Makeup 🌟
The Em Cosmetics products are my favorite for summer. Lightweight and glowy, they are the perfect compliment to summer skin. My two favorite products are the EM COSMETICS - Color Drops Serum Blush blush drops and EM COSMETICS - Heaven’s Glow: Magic Hour Blush Both of these sit beautifully on the skin, making it look like “yours-but-better”. They also last the whole day and hold up beautifully. EM COSMETICS - Limited Edition Divine Skies Eyeshadow Palette is beautifully pigmented and one of my new favorite travel palettes. With the number of shadows, it’s not overwhelming but there are very many looks you can create. They blend beautifully and don’t crease without eye primer, and there is minimal fallout. The lip products are amazingly hydrating. I keep either one of these in my purse for emergencies. They look great with or without other makeup, keep my lips soft and smooth, and the shade is universally flattering. EM COSMETICS - True Gloss Lip Gloss Is in my opinion one of the best feeling lipglosses on the market

Easy (five minute!) makeup for ZOOM Meetings
Doing my makeup and feeling put-together is one of my favorite things, however I don’t always have the time or energy to be able to achieve a full-face beat every day. Soft and gentle glam, I use this look when I want to feel ~soft~ and glowy, but only spend minimal time on it. I start with NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer which I use all over my face, spot concealing redness of pimples, around my nose and lips, tip of my nose, and between my eyebrows. This brightens and evens your skin tone without a full face of foundation. You can use primer if you want, when I do I use a blurring primer like TATCHA - The Silk Canvas Protective Primer or beautyblender - Pore Minimizing Primer which smooth skin and even look good just on their own. I set with BECCA - Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder and then move on to my eyes. I use one eyeshadow palette with a few colors, two of my favorites are NATASHA DENONA - Mini Nude Eyeshadow Palette and EM COSMETICS - Limited Edition Divine Skies Eyeshadow Palette which have both mattes and shimmers. Important: they don’t patch! This makes blending a breeze. I put a neutral brown in my crease and outer V, then layer a dark brown in my outer v and smudge on my lower lash line. Adding shimmer is optional, but I usually do. For this I just use my finger and swipe on the lid. All powders for my face bronzer, blush, & highlight applied with one fluffy brush. I apply blush by pinching the powder brush in my fingers to elongate it to place product where I want— my fav is PATRICK TA - Monochrome Moment Velvet Blush which applies smoothly on all skin (prepped or not). I layer with benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzer in a 3 shape, and finish with whatever glowing highlight i feel like. In this image it’s OFRA - Nikkietutorials Everglow Highlighter Brow filling is optional, but brushing them up with a gel helps you look awake and youthful with little effort. Finish with mascara and a tinted lip balm or moisturizing lipstick like Glossier. - Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick or EM COSMETICS - EM Cosmetics Lip Cushion and you’re ready to go in less than ten!

Top Fall Beauty Picks! Lips and Brows 😍
Each season I love revamping my makeup wardrobe with some of the newest drops, in order to test them out and see if anything stacks up to my tried and true favorites. This fall season, I picked up some new brow and lip products, and these are the ones I keep reaching for that really stood up to my wear and application tests! All of these products are stellar. First up is PATRICK TA - Major Beauty Headlines Matte Suede Lipstick and the matching liner PATRICK TA - Monochrome Moment Precision Lip Crayon which both glide on like a dream. There’s no patching or skipping, and the true color pay-off with this red is there after just one swipe. It’s not mask safe, but perfect for a facetime or zoom call where you want to look classic and put together, from a professional meeting to a cute virtual date. This is more of a blue-red that is not too bright, that I personally find is very flattering on all skin types! Red is usually not my go-to, but I love the flattering shade (makes teeth look whiter too!) and ease of application. This is now my perfect red. EM COSMETICS - Soft Blur Velvet Lip Liner and the EM COSMETICS - EM Cosmetics Lip Cushion are both mask safe, and I use them on days I want to wear makeup but don’t want to destroy the inside of my mask. The liner is truly blurring and a dream for over lining; it doesn’t smudge or look harsh. The brown and nude colors are absolutely perfect for fall looks. The lip cushion not only is a beautiful universally flattering shade, it is my top day-time lip balm with a slew of hydrating ingredients. Glossier. - Boy Brow needs to move over, because there’s a new brow product in town that sets brows even better. Rare Beauty - Brow Harmony Pencil and Gel sets my brows for hours without them looking hard or crunchy. It also comes with an additional brow pencil that doesn’t smudge and makes light strokes for hairs. I really love this setting gel though, I was in 100 degree heat for 2.5 hours and my brows didn’t move at all. If you want to buy anything from this haul, this is the product. Comes in a myriad of shades (I use blonde!) that aren’t too pigmented but make brows look fuller and more luscious. I hope this review of new fall products helps you! Are there any makeup products you would like to see reviewed in the future?

Natural Glowing Summer Makeup That Lasts! 🌟
I recently had a photoshoot outside in the summer heat, and needed my makeup to look light and glowing, but not oily and sweaty. These are some of my favorite products to achieve that. BECCA - Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder is the absolute superstar of setting powder. It feels like spraying water on your face, but sets makeup immaculately without looking dry or cakey. I was in 88 degree heat for two hours and didn’t need to retouch ONCE! Truly amazing, this powder is now a staple in my routine. Bonus, no flashback. OFRA - NikkieTutorials Highlighting Trio in the shade glazed donut is the best powder highlighter in my collection. Glowing but not glittery or cakey, it layers beautifully over creme and other powder products. Facetune in real life! This is one of my favorite all time products. Next comes tarte - Big Ego Mascara which has a great formula. It doesn’t flake or smudge in the heat or humidity, and holds my lashes really well. The only con for me is the brush, which is bigger than I like for my eyes. However, I can easily go over after with a spoolie, and the formula is worth it. EM COSMETICS - Soft Blur Velvet Lip Liner is also a great product, as it held up in between locations while I was wearing my mask, and did so well I didn’t need to retouch it either. The formula goes on super smooth with no bleeding, and makes it easy to line lips in one motion. I used it on my entire lips here, with just some lip balm on top. benefit - Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel is a little bit expensive for a brow gel, but held up well. I don’t think I will repurchase because I wasn’t fully hooked, however it’s a good product and holds brows in place in heat and humidity. I also found I didn’t need a brow pencil with this product as it filled my brows in very nicely, so the price is justified that way!

My favorite glowy makeup products!
My favorite glowy makeup products!
LANEIGE - Glowy Makeup Serum formulated with diamond mineral powder, which creates a visibly healthy, reflective glow. You can use as a face primer with or without makeup REVLON - Photoready Candid Glow Moisture Glow Anti-Pollution Foundation lightweight foundation that leaves your skin moisturized along with a long lasting glow ✨ I’m in the shade 120 EM COSMETICS - Color Drops Serum Blush this is actually in the shade sunset sky which is a pretty red orange blush. This is a super dewy, wet-looking blush and is sheer so you can build it up to your desired shade. Perfect blush if you are going for a glowy look! Charlotte Tilbury - Hollywood Flawless Filter this is in the shade 1 fair. This can be used as a primer, highlight, or mixed in with foundation! Perfect healthy glow. FENTY BEAUTY - Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer This is in the shade sweet mouth. For a glowy look you can definitely use whatever gloss you want but I absolutely love this formula! Non sticky and gives such a great shine to the lips.

EM COSMETICS - CLASSIC BRUNETTE BROW CREAM I cannot express how much I love this brow cream! As a person with very fine brows I need a brush that is tiny. Larger brushes make a mess. I can easily build volume and length with this easy-to-use and precise cream and brush. The search is finally over! 😍

Favorite blush #1
Favorite blush #1
These serum blushes are so good! I love that they are sheer but buildable and that they are meant to be good for the skin while you wear them. The formula feels very lightweight and water like, and they blend into the skin seamlessly. I love the dewy finish that they give the skin and how healthy my cheeks look upon application. I knocked a star off because the packaging is not the highest quality. The pump is finicky and it takes a few tries to get product out; however, I don’t find this takes away from the product. I’d recommend these if you like dewy/radiant finish to your blush, you’ll love these. I’ve purchased three shades and I would definitely purchase the fourth shade that I’m missing to complete my collection- so yes, I find that they’re worth the money!

Em cosmetics serum blush review
Looking for a new liquid blush? Well look no further! I will be talking about Em Cosmetics serum blushes in the shades rose & sunset sky. They retail for $25 and you get .34 fl oz These liquid blushes are perfect if you are looking for a dewy/glowy blush. They are pretty sheer but you can definitely build up the color. They also contain no shimmer or glitter. If you want a more velvety finish you can always set it with translucent powder. Rose milk is a blush pink and sunset sky is a beautiful red/orange shade (my personal fav!) see pic for swatches🧡

Golden hour all day with these magical products✨
Golden hour all day with these magical products✨
After months of seeing these products all over my Instagram, I decided it was finally time to buy them for myself! Em Cosmetics was founded by Michelle Phan, an OG beauty YouTuber that many young women like me grew up with. I absolutely love the overall aesthetics of her brand— it’s so simple and stunning at the same time. EM COSMETICS - Heaven’s Glow: Magic Hour Blush is quite large for the amount you pay. I don’t think I’ll be making a dent in it any time soon. It comes in a sturdy pink compact with a mirror inside. It’s so elegant, but also perfect for travel! The blush itself is quite light in terms of color, but I really enjoy that! I like how you can easily build up the intensity to give you a magic hour/golden hour glow. A dupe for this could easily be MILANI - MILANI Baked Blush in Luminoso! EM COSMETICS - True Gloss Lip Gloss is a really good mix between a lip gloss and a liquid lipstick. It’s got the pigmentation and application of a liquid lipstick, but it feels and shines like a lip gloss once applied. The shade I got was a lot more orange than I initially thought it would look, but again, the great thing with Em Cosmetics products is the buildability! I like to apply just a smidge and build up to the intensity I like!
