Your nightly routine, no matter what skincare regimen you ascribe to, should begin with makeup removal. This crucial step removes all the clogging makeup from your eyelashes and pores and helps to provide a blank canvas to cleanse, nourish, and moisturize. Think of it as a reset. You made yourself a work of art all day and now get to relax in a clean, bare face. But is removing makeup really that important? You bet it is! Your skin goes through its most poignant renewal and reparation processes while you sleep. If you sabotage this process, you leave your pores filled with excess oil, grime, and nastiness that can cause breakouts, slow collagen production, and traps dead skin cells. If you’re lazy (like us sometimes!), try checking out our waterproof makeup remover wipes included in the list below or try putting cotton pads, and one of our makeup removers under $30 on your bedside table. That means no sink, mirror, or rinsing needed! Our 8 Favorite Makeup Remover Picks (as crowned by the Internet)What makes a great makeup remover? For one, it does its job by removing most, if not all, our makeup. We don’t want panda eyes the next morning! Secondly, it works on waterproof products. And third, it doesn’t break the bank. With this criterion in mind, we scoured through Instagram and the Internet for influencer recommendations, and put them to the test! 1. Bioderma Sensibio H2O Soothing Micellar Cleansing Water
Sensibio H2O, BIODERMA, cherie
BIODERMASensibio H2O
Micellar water is everywhere. First mass-produced in the Parisian beauty scene, dermatologists and influencers alike rave about this bright little liquid. It’s affordable, fail-safe, and has the added benefit of balancing out the pH of your skin, all while removing even the longest-lasting waterproof makeup. We especially like Bioderma Micellar Water for its brilliant price tag, long-lasting versatility, and gentle cleansing. Use with cotton pads or clean cotton flannel. If you need additional convincing, this product has a tick of approval from Instagram Influencer/ Scientist: LabMuffin Beauty Science (a Chemistry Ph.D. and Beauty Blogger, who is all about facts over trends and fiction).2. Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes Neutrogena as a brand fades in and out of trend, but dermatologists and beauty experts alike find themselves returning to it’s fail-safe and classic makeup remover wipes. Selling for under $10.00, these wipes boast soft, quick makeup removal with 0 water and 0 effort needed. Simply wipe away, and it's done!3. Klorane Floral Water Make-Up Remover with Soothing CornflowerKlorane specializes in gentle cleansers and skin products using all-natural botanicals. This Micellar style water works in 3 ways: balancing pH, removing makeup, and toning the skin. Coming in at $26.00, this is one of the priciest makeup removers on this list. Is it worth it, you ask? If you struggle with acne or sensitive skin and pride yourself on ethical shopping, then yes. This product uses cornflower as it’s driving soothing, softening, and decongesting proponent. It’s better for the environment (and your skin) than most cleansers, and the price reflects this. However, if you don’t suffer from sensitive skin, we recommend the Bioderma Micellar Water described above.4. Burt’s Bees Makeup Remover Pads with Kiwi ExtractBurt Bee’s never adds fragrance and alcohol to their products, meaning their products tend to soothe rather than irritate the skin. These remover pads are 97% effective in makeup removal tests (according to Chemist Confession Instagram Tests) and are perfect for the lazy makeup wearer. Simply use the premade wipe to remove makeup, and you are done!5. Origin Original Skin Cleansing Makeup Removing Jelly with WillowherbThis next recommendation first came to our attention through the goddess that is beauty blogger Samantha Ravndahl. As a beauty influencer struggling with acne, Samantha honestly reviews products for their sensitivity and effectiveness. Origins Makeup Removing Jelly received her tick of approval, and we agree! Oil-based to best dissolve tough sunscreen and foundations, this jelly is best applied with your fingertips and a bit of water. Rinse and enjoy your fresh, clean face!6. Glossier Milky Oil Touted as a miracle waterproof makeup remover, we honestly believe Glossier deserves a round of applause for this fabulously effective concoction. For such a hard-working oil, this cleanser feels surprisingly gentle. It doesn’t require harsh scrubbing and is vegan and ethical. Apply directly to a cotton swab or cloth and wipe away the day’s makeup. Nothing more needed!7. The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser

This is my night skincare routine for oily, combination , acne prone skin. These products are so good and help me lots with painful acne around jawlines. 🧖🏻‍♀️I use #Senka - SENKA All Clear Water Micellar White[products]#[FiveStars] ove my makeup. I like this one because it has green tea in it and very suitable for combination acne prone skin. 💜 Next, I use TATCHA - The Rice Wash Soft Cream Cleanser aka the perfect winter cleanser. Even my usually oily skin likes this. It’s very gentle, smells so so nice and luxurious. Lathers beautiful but still creamy. It cleanses your face as it should but doesn’t dry your skin out during winter. 💆🏻‍♀️For acne treatment, I exfoliate withCOSRX - One Step Pimple Clear Pads 2x/week and use LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Adapalene Gel .01% Topical Retinoid Acne Treatment 3x/week but not in the same night. 🔥✨ Then we have this lovely moisturizer INDIE LEE - Daily Skin Nutrition I’ve tried many oil free moisturizer for my stubborn oily skin but nothing works. It’s always look dull and shiny in the afternoon. If you have the same issue this product is perfect for you. This moisturizer IMMEDIATELY sinks into your skin and keeps my skin hydrated all day. It makes my skin so soft, doesn’t feel sticky after applying, even suitable for sensitive skin. The only downside to this is it’s the scent. It smells kinda weird to me but will disappear after a few minutes. That’s all from me. Hope you like this post 😁 *Music: Together( Prod. by Lukrembo)
Create A Subtle Cat Eye Using Lash Extensions💕
Create A Subtle Cat Eye Using Lash Extensions💕
This post is dedicated to those of you who don’t want or can’t use a lash strip! If you have a subtle eyeshadow look, a great way to enhance your natural eyeshape is to use individual lash extensions! It’ll give you that your lash but better look and create a charming “atmosphere” around the eye. You don’t have to be a lash artist to do it. All you need is some classic lash glue and individual lashes from a place like LASHIFY - AMPLIFY GOSSAMER LASHES For this eyelook, I created a Demi lash towards the outer corner. A Demi lash is essentially a lash that is about 1/3rd long of a normal strip lash. Starting for the end of the outer corner I used three individual lashes beginning with a 14mm size at the outermost corner. Next would be a 12mm and a finally a 10mm. You can see the difference it makes in the first photo vs the second. In the second photo, I just have mascara, whereas the first photo I have the 3 individual lashes! Tips: 1. Curl and put on your mascara BEFORE you put on the individual lashes. The mascara will provide a sturdy base for the individual lashes to attach to. 2. Use a tweezer to assist with your application and attach the lash to your lash line. DO NOT put it directly on the waterline because this will cause irritation. You do want to be close to it though! 3. I use the lash glue from house of lashes. It’s comfortable and not clumpy. Place the glue on the individual lash like you would normally would on a strip lash. You only need A LITTLE bit of glue. Placing too much will cause difficulty in sticking and it’ll get all over your lashes. Another glue you could use or try is the DUO - DUO Brush-on Adhesive Enjoy your flirty “natural” lashes 💕😄
COLLAGEN— THE SECRET TO WRINKLE-FREE SKIN?!
COLLAGEN— THE SECRET TO WRINKLE-FREE SKIN?!
I’ve always heard/been told that once you hit 25 you need to start incorporating collagen into your daily routine. Our bodies natural collagen production begins to decline and adding it or collage- boosting products can help to keep plump, wrinkle-free skin. I am under 25 but that doesn’t mean that I can't still benefit from collagen products.  Collagen What is it:  Collagen is a protein found in your body that provides it’s structure including the skin, hair and nails.  Collagen decline: Many factors decline collagen production including: •age (typically after 25) •sugar/refined carbs •excess sun exposure •smoking How to boost collagen production: Fortunately there are many ways to boost collagen production. Including foods, supplements, and skin care. This can either be incorporated directly from the source (collagen) or by the collagen-boosting foods. Collagen foods: •bone broth •egg whites •fish •lean meat •spirulina Collagen-boosting foods: •vitamin C; such as citrus fruits, broccoli  •zinc; such as certain cereals, breads •manganese; such as leafy green vegetables and teas •copper; such as nuts and shellfish Supplemnets: Supplements are an easy way to incorporate collagen into the body. They can be incorporated into foods or drinks making it practical for everyday use. Some forms of supplements include: •gelatin •collagen pills •collagen peptide/protein powders •marine collagen Skincare: If you are using a skincare product this claims to have pure collagen in it, it may not be as beneficial as you’d like it to be. That is because collagen in it’s pure form may be to hard to penetrate through the skin and will leave you with no benefits. When choosing skincare products for collagen, its best to chose products that claim to boost collagen production. These products will contain ingredients mentioned above such as vitamin-c and even retinols.  A product that I use that boosts collagen production with the help of active marine plant extracts is:  ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Marine Cream — $128 Key Ingredients: •Padina Pavonica: A unique Mediterranean algae with proven outstanding anti-aging benefits (aids in the production of collagen) •Mimosa: An anti-inflammatory, toning and astringent. It has a pleasing, delicate aroma •Rose: A natural fragrance component with nurturing and calming properties -Ulta.com What is it: Hydrating, wrinkle cream that helps firm the skin. How I use: This cream is intended for day use but I find it way to thick to use during the day. I like to use this cream at night as a moisturizer to seal in all of my other creams and serums. I apply all over my face and neck.  Results/Recommendations: Like previously stated, this cream is very thick. I’m prefer lightweight creams over thicker ones. This cream is not irritating and did not cause any side affects for my sensitive skin. However I did not see any dramatic differences for the amount of money the product cost. I feel as if other products work better but I do like that it aids in collagen production. I personally would not repurchase.  If you are worried about wrinkles or are interested in living a healthier lifestyle, I would recommend for you to think about incorporating ways to boost your collagen production. This can either be through quitting bad habits such as smoking, making better food choices, or incorporating collagen supplements/skincare into your daily routine. Lastly, if you are a vegetarian, etc. it is good to know that there are plenty of plant-based options available.  #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

I’ve been asked multiple times by my awesome TikTok community to do a makeup look inspired by the popular video game, Among Us. I wanted to create an avant-garde version of their intro screen and promo posters, where the lil astronauts were all in space. Then I added all the colors mixed into a rectangular block on my face to match how the characters look. Being inspired by something popular doesn’t mean you have to give up on your aesthetic ❤️ If you want to see how I applied everything, check out my tiktok tutorial @cindychendesigns!
