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!

are pore bubbling masks worth it? 🧼🛁💬
since COVID has started, I know many people are on new (or refining old) skincare journeys and I’ve recently been experiencing some dryness/dehydrating as the winter rolls around, which also aggravates my already oily skin. I’ve worked in the beauty industry for a while and also was formerly an esthetician, so I can get picky with skincare and ingredients. ‼️for reference, my skin type is: combo (oily/dehydrated), formerly acneic, hyperpigmentation prone, and sensitive 🔬I’ve used Dr. Jart in the past and love that it’s a Korean, science-backed brand so I was stoked to try this Porecting Solution Mask! this mask promises fresh, clear glowing skin that deeply cleanses and purifies pores. the mask contains charcoal and saponine, which creates the bubbling effect you see in the above photo. this product does not contain sulfates, paragons, are phthalates. 🛁when I first took it out of its package, I thought there were *two* masks per package instead of one, but if you read the instructions, there’s actually a “mask film” on the actual mask itself that you’re supposed to remove, so make sure to do that! the actual mask is thick and full of product while the mask film is thinner and lighter in color. the directions also give you a tip to massage the mask to release the bubbling/foaming effect - I did this mask with my mom at the same time in separate rooms and she totally didn’t read the instructions so her mask didn’t bubble at all, so I would suggest to definitely massage the mask. 💬I left it on for 20 minutes and it continued to bubble about 5-10 minutes in, then stopped bubbling. you can hear the bubbles pop as the mask sits on your face, which is kinda weird but cool. the mask didn’t slip off AT ALL which is also a huge, even when I put a sweatshirt on over my head. after taking it off, the serum took about another 10 minutes to soak into my skin and my face felt super smooth and my pores looked tighter and more clean. I have a few sebaceous filaments on my nose that I sometimes pick at and as I was rubbing the serum into my skin, I saw that some of the sebaceous filaments on my nose were sloughing off (which is gross, but speaks to how well the product worked)! overall, I would definitely recommend and use this again! if you have oily skin or otherwise clogged pores, sebaceous filaments, blackheads, etc. I would suggest this for you. even if you have dry/normal skin, this would be a good option since my skin didn’t feel dried out at all afterward, even in my dry spell now, and felt rather hydrated and plump. five stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

What it means to blowdry down the hair cuticle!
Let’s simplify what it means when a hairstylist says to blow dry down the hair cuticle: When you think of your hair, think of the shingles on a roof. They’re all laying down but on top of each other. The cuticle of our hair is doing the same! When we blow dry up or at the hair cuticle, it causes all those little shingles to stand up- causing frizz, loss of moisture, and hair damage. When we blow dry down the hair cuticle, all the shingles can lay flat against each other and be the protective barrier that they’re supposed to be. If you’re having trouble with extra frizz or loss of moisture pay attention to the direction that your blow drying. This could make all the difference!
My Top 5 Foundations for Oily Skin
Here are my top 5 foundations for oily/combination/acne prone skin! These are by no means my only favorite foundations, just the ones I keep going back to. 1. ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation This matte, oil-free foundation controls oil all day. It’s sweat, heat and humidity-resistant, waterproof and 24-hour colour true. With buildable, medium-to-full coverage that feels lightweight and so comfortable. No touchups needed. Best for hot weather/ holidays. The only Downside is that it doesn’t come with a pump 2. MAYBELLINE - Fit Me! Matte & Poreless Foundation This foundation is a must have if you are looking for a good drugstore option for oily skin. It’s super affordable and gives a beautiful finish without feeling heavy on the skin. 3. HUDA BEAUTY - Fauxfilter Foundation is perfect for you if you are looking for full coverage. Just a couple of pumps go a long way. However, the formula isn’t ideal for anyone with dry skin or for people sensitive to string fragrances. 4. L'ORÉAL - Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Longwear Foundation This formula blends unbelievably well and you can build this to completely full coverage! ! I'm beyond impressed for this being drugstore. 5. The Ordinary - Colours Coverage Foundation with SPF 15 this is my everyday foundation and gives good enough coverage. I just have to mix two different shades to get my color as the range is quiet limited but for the price I pay, I don’t mind. Always stay away form words like “dewy”, “luminous”, “shiny” , “glowy” if you have oily skin. Let me know if you have any questions.
