It's 2020, and Cherie has one wish for you—that you get all the great things in life you deserve. There are a lot of big feelings for this new decade (#2020Vision, anyone?), which is why we gathered a list of what every sign deserves this year, paired with the beauty product to help them achieve it, of course! Capricorn - You Deserve... NO STRESSWe love a fierce Capricorn. We can always count on you to inspire us to go for our dreams and be active in our will to meet our goals! If anyone is going to achieve their new year's resolutions, it's going to be Capricorn. For 2020, you deserve no stress. Make your last hours of the day your sanctuary—create a ritual that will help you de-stress from the day and prepare you for the one ahead. Reach for Derma E's Skin De-Stress Calming CBD Moisturizer to help you achieve zen. Hemp seed oil, aloe vera, and CBD help you get your much-deserved rest. Plus, Derma E has an entire de-stress line, including a cleanser and serum, if you want to zen out even further. Aquarius - You Deserve... LOVEOh Aquarius, the independent, effervescent, and not-so-romantic sign. Aquarians are known to have large social circles, but not very intimate ones. And though we know you love your alone time, we think you deserve love this year! Get out there and get to know people on a deeper level; you might like what you see! To prepare you for love coming your way, reach for Tatcha's The Kissu Lip Mask. Made with Japanese peach, this lip mask will help plump your lips and make them soft to the touch, so pucker up!
TATCHAThe Kissu Lip MaskPisces - You Deserve... A SOCIAL LIFE We love how in-tune you are with your emotions, and your empathetic ways make you a great friend. We also know that being in tune with your feelings can make you naturally want to take time for yourself, which is essential, but we also think you deserve a great social life this year! Make room for fun in your life this year by stepping out and getting your dance on. Put on your favorite gloss, like Kosas' Wet Lip Oil, and get to steppin'.
KosasWet Lip Oil GlossAries - You Deserve... ETERNAL YOUTHNo one's got the fire you do, Aries! You may have a rep for being an energizer bunny, but that's no excuse to push yourself beyond rest. Though we think you deserve eternal youth, we know it's not a possibility in this world. The next best thing? Great anti-aging skincare products. Combat any signs of fatigue and aging with Peace Out's Anti Wrinkle Retinol Patches. They're so simple to use—just stick 'em over a wrinkle and the retinol goes to work to help smooth out fine lines. So maybe eternal youth is possible! Taurus - You Deserve... GOOD VIBES ONLYOne of the most indulgent signs in the zodiac, Taureans love all things beauty and relaxation. They are also known to be stubborn and stuck-in-their-ways, which has a tendency to attract negative energy because of its unyielding energy. So, for 2020, we think you deserve all the good vibes. Bring some good, open energy in your life by redirecting your unyielding energy—be unyielding in expecting the greatest year possible, instead of being stubborn in an overly-specific idea. When it comes to your self care, energize your skin with Dr. Jart + Peptidin Firming Serum with Energy Peptides. The eight-peptide complex livens dull skin, bringing radiance to low-energy complexions. Gemini - You Deserve... SUMMER FUNTo our chatty Cathy's otherwise known as Gemini's... You deserve summer fun this year. Being born in the summer, it's only right that you claim your season as the best one yet; let this 2020 summer be the summer of Gemini's! We can all learn from your playful energy, you are the original social butterfly, after all! Since summer is still a ways ahead, bring some of that sunshine and joy into your life right now with Sol de Janeiro's new Joia Shampoo & Conditioner. Scented with Sol de Janeiro's iconic pistachio and salted caramel scent, this hair duo strengthens and repairs your hair, setting you up perfectly for the summer fun ahead. Cancer - You Deserve... Rest & RelaxationOur intuitive friends who wear their hearts on their sleeves, Cancer's tend to wear the weight of the world on their shoulders. Because of their good-hearted nature and keen intuition, it's easy for Cancer's to get into business that isn't their own (nosy or nah?) So, for the year 2020, we think Cancer's deserve all the R&R in the world. Feed your attraction to bodies of water; take a beach vacation, have a spa day, or indulge in nightly bubble baths! And since you love water so much, partake in an ultra-hydrating face mask, like Drunk Elephant's F Balm Electrolyte Water Facial Mask. Work overnight, this mask can up your R&R and make the most of your beauty sleep.
DRUNK ELEPHANTF-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial MaskLeo - You Deserve... ATTENTIONLet's skip to the chase—Leo's deserve what they want most—attention. Ruled by the sun, it's only natural that Leo's want to be the center of attention! All that shine and all that sun deserve a product that can keep up with your light. That's where Supergoop's Shimmershade Illuminating Cream Eyeshadow comes to play. While you Leo's are out and about getting your shine on, this first-of-it's-kind eyeshadow adds a lovely look-at-me shimmer to your eyes while protecting them with SPF 30!
Supergoop!Shimmershade EyeshadowVirgo - You Deserve... AN EASY BUTTONIt's in Virgo's nature to be hardworking task-completers. No one can tell them differently when it comes to getting things done! But all that hard work can sometimes be time-consuming—while Virgo's are focused on getting things done, they often overlook efficiency. So, for 2020, Virgo's deserve an easy button. That means they deserve to be able to complete their tasks in efficient yet perfect ways! Take, for example, Kaja's Wink Stamp Eyeliner. This smart eyeliner utilizes a stamp to make achieving the perfect winged eyeliner incredibly easy. See, Virgo's, you can get things done correctly and quickly! Libra - You Deserve... BALANCEThe plight of every Libra is finding balance in every situation. That's why you'll often find Libra playing the role of devil's advocate; they'll always find a voice of reason to see both sides. It's an honorable trait, and they truly deserve to find balance in all areas of their life this year. When it comes to their skincare, Libra's should try Algenist's Alive Prebiotic Balancing Mask. This mask uses prebiotics to balance the skin's microbiome, in turn improving texture and radiance of skin.
ALGENISTALIVE Prebiotic Balancing MaskScorpio - You Deserve... INDULGENCEScorpio's, take a minute to rest from your ruminating nature and indulge in the great things life has to offer. The deep waters of a Scorpios mind are enough to preoccupy their time with all the great mysteries of the world, but sometimes it's great to let that all go and just indulge in life. A great product to indulge in? Mamonde's Rosewater Gel Cream. This decadently scented gel-cream uses rosewater to hydrate and moisturize your skin deeply. It's such a treat for your face—one that you truly deserve!
MamondeRose Water Gel CreamSagittarius - You Deserve... SLEEPLet's be real, a Sag rarely sleeps. The philosopher of the zodiac, you can find a Sag up and at 'em getting social, thinking about the concept of life, or planning their next travel. Honestly, though, they most likely are somewhere overseas doing all three! So for 2020, our dear Sag's deserve SLEEP. Yes, world-traveler, it's ok to rest! There are even skincare products that help calm your skin (and you) down for deep beauty sleep. Take Peter Thomas Roth's Green Releaf Therapeutic Sleep Cream, for example. Packed with colloidal oatmeal, cannabis sativa seed oil, melatonin, and retinoid, this nighttime moisturizer puts together a dream team for sweet dreams. Rest up, Sag, there's so much of the world for you to take on!

Key to preventing and treating STRAWBERRY LEGS🍓
The key to preventing and treating strawberry legs First- What are strawberry legs? StrawberryStawberry legs are common little black/brown dots that occur on people's legs after shaving. It is most common in people of color, and those with fairer skin, but darker hair. Strawberry legs is very common, and very simple to treat and prevent -Hydration I mention in my video that most of my products are hydrating, why's that? Strawberry skin is common with those with drier legs, making the appearance of the hair follicle more noticeable. A way to prevent this is to keep your skin very hydrated, and not to use too many stripping body washes. I am using this on method - Stay Hydrated Body wash from method. -Exfoliation Another very important key to preventing strawberry legs is exfoliation. This helps lift up any ingrown hairs and soften the hair follicle, which helps a smoother, and easier shave. However, you need to exfoliate BEFORE shaving, as it preps the skin and gets all the dead skin out of the way. When choosing a body scrub, refrain from buying a scrub that isn't natural, as those tend to be more harsh, and give an uneven exfoliation. I recommend any sugar scrub from Tree hut, I am using this one TREE HUT - Moroccan Rose Shea Sugar Scrub -Shaving oil Up until recently I didn't even know these existed. After some research, I found myself asking, “Why aren't these more popular??” Shaving oils are so much better for your skin. Unlike shaving creams/foams, you are able to see exactly what you are shaving, they also help give a closer shave, and provide a very smooth surface to shave on. I have been using this shaving oil TREE HUT - Bare Moisturizing Shave Oil for a little over a month now, and I still haven't gotten any little nicks or cuts!! -Razor- i'm sure you all have heard of the brand Billie, or have at least seen the thousands of ads on instagram, well, it is definitely worth it. For a very cheap price, you can get a very effective razor. This razor has 5 nickel free blades and gives an amazingly close and easy shave. I'm sure you can use any type of razor, but I highly recommendbillie - Billie Razor , but just make sure to change your blades once a month! Post shaving mist- Another product I've never really heard of, but this is essentially an after shave. A post shaving mist can help cool and calm irritated skin from after shaving, as well as prevent ingrown hairs, and itchy skin. I use this one TREE HUT - Bare Post Shave Mist Moroccan Rose Body serum- I use this serumTRULY - Jelly Booster Pigment Treatment Body Potion to help hydrate and fix the complexion on my legs. I actually used this to help fade my old scars and ingrown hairs on my legs, but I've also noticed that it has disappeared the appearance of my strawberry legs. Lotion- Finally, the common lotion. This ties to my first point about hydrating with strawberry legs, this lotion TREE HUT - Shea Moisturizing Body Lotion Moroccan Rose smells amazing of rose, and gives a nice glowy look without feeling greasy.
My trick for completely covering dark circles!🙈
I have always had pretty prominent dark circles due to genetics and no doubt lack of sleep! Through a ton of trial and error I have found a routine and products that work really well for me to cover my dark circles almost completely (I do have slight hallows which makes it look like a dark circle). Surprising I use 4-5 products to achieve this look. •First I use a warm (as in orangey) red lipstick. Yes, lipstick. It counteracts the blueish tones under your eyes. Trust me. This is the step that is a game changer. I use Kosas - Weightless Lip Color but any warm toned red lipstick will work. I mainly focus this on the inner part of my eye where I have the most darkness. (I also use this under my nostrils because I have slight shadowing there). •I next use BECCA - Under Eye Brightening Corrector and it is much lighter and peachier than the lipstick. This is great to use on top of the lipstick to blend together. It is much more emollient and easier to work with. This has light reflecting particles to help brighten the eye even further. •I then use two concealers on top of those. Currently I am using a light shade of DOSE OF COLORS - Meet Your Hue Concealer This concealer is easy to work with. Super creamy and has minimal creasing. I only apply a small dot to my inner eye with this one. •I then use a warmer-more yellow shade (Snow) of Too Faced - Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Concealer on the outer edge of my eye and in the mid part of my cheek (this allows for a brightened inner face and less product under the eye the better). I then use a beauty blender to blend these two completely. Blend up under the eye and out the inner corner as well. •My last step is to set this all down!! My favorite powders to use are laura mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder and Charlotte Tilbury - Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder Both are great for setting the face. I like to bake with the LM powder since it is a loose powder and it’s easier to use product. Hope this helps. 🥰 #cheriepartner
BYE BYE STATIC👋
Frizz and fly-aways happen to the best of us. No matter how often we moisturize our hair during the winter, escaping static electricity seems impossible. To better understand how to tame your hair static, you need to know a little bit more about what causes it. So, What Causes Hair Static? Static electricity is created when two objects rub against each other. This swap causes a kind of electric charge to build up on your hair. If there is humidity in the air, the charge can usually just go away on its own.🙏🏼 There’s many ways one can get rid of fly-aways and hair static…You can use hair oils, leave-in conditioners, there’s even some anti-frizz, anti-static hair products you can use. However, I have found a way that works best for me. I got this idea from celebrity hair stylist, Jen Atkin (founder and owner of OUAI). She says that one of the best ways to get rid of fly-aways and hair static is by using a blush brush and hairspray. I have very thick, curly and frizzy hair naturally. My fly-aways and static appear on either side of my parting and they normally appear straight after I wash and straighten my hair. All I want is a sleek smooth look, but these fly-aways always get in the way.🙄 #Sorbet - Flexible and Shine Hairspray[products]#[FiveStars] I use the Flexible and Shine Hairspray from Sorbet. I love this product because it keeps everything in place but doesn’t harden your hair (that’s the worst). I spray this hairspray onto a plain old (no name brand) blush brush, and slowly stroke down the strands of hairs that are static. This really does work like a bomb. You do have to go over the strands a couple of times until all of them are sleek and smoothed down. There’s my little trick of the day. Try it out and let me know if this hack works for you! Paula x
