Because let’s face it — even men get dark circles, breakouts, & creases, & it can majorly lower their confidence levels. And honestly, it’s 2020, men deserve to feel comfortable, confident, & happy in their own skin, & should never have any shame for doing that! For that reason, we’re going to share with you today a few of the absolute best natural-looking makeup products specifically designed for men.Tom Ford Concealer The first product we want to feature is the Tom Ford Concealer for men. The coolest part about makeup for men is that it is literally designed to be invisible, so it appears totally natural, & as if you aren’t wearing any at all (which is ideal for him). For that reason, Tom Ford concealer is perfect to help boost your confidence in business lectures, or help you to look & feel refreshed for date night (even after a long night out with friends).

TOM FORDEmotionproof ConcealerTom Ford Brow GelEven though it seems that men have been blessed by the gods in their eyebrow fullness, thickness, & beauty (no, we're not jealous… pfft), sometimes they still need a little touch up! Now, we’re not talking about some of the more obvious makeup trends that appear very drawn on or dark, but adding a touch of makeup to your brows won’t hurt, especially if you suffer from lighter brows. For that reason, we recommend the Tom Ford brow gel to help give you that tinted, organized, & groomed brow look!
TOM FORDTOM FORD Fiber Brow GelNyx Micro Brow Pencil For Sparse Facial HairA technique that’s becoming a lot more popular amongst men is filling in the sparse areas of their beard or mustache. It’s okay, we get it — facial hair doesn’t always grow in all the right places, but filling it in can be a quick & sexy touch-up! An excellent product to use for this is the Nyx Eyebrow pencil. While this is specifically designed for brows, the precision of the micro tip makes it ideal for small, realistic details for all areas of your face. Simply choose the correct shade for yourself, & create little flicks of color in your sparse areas to create natural-looking hair growth. In addition, this can also be used on your eyebrows which is a total win-win!Nivea Men Active Care Lip BalmBefore you go running for that red X in the corner, hear us out! When we say lip balm, we’re not talking about a glossy or sparkling balm that’s tinted with red or pink to bring out your eyes — we’re talking about a moisturizer to keep your lips soft & delicious! Just as with your skin, in order to keep your lips healthy, young, & kissable, you have to show them a bit of love! For this reason, we’ve chosen Nivea Men Active Care to get the job done. It doesn’t leave a glossy residue, or a weird aftertaste, just a plethora of hydration! It also isn’t tinted, & is one of the most popular lip balms used by men (& there’s a reason). Honestly, what more could you be looking for in a lip balm? Collection Lasting Perfection Color CorrectorIf you’re willing to try out concealer or foundation, you have to give a color corrector a shot! While using a color corrector may sound intimidating & involved at first — it’s not. It’s simply there to use underneath a foundation or concealer to help keep the darker, uneven colors of your skin from bleeding through, & give you an overall more clean-cut appearance. We’ve chosen Collection Lasting Perfection Color as our go-to for this, which promises to deliver flawless coverage for up to 16 hours. This award-winning corrector is ideal for correcting those pesky blemishes, or even-ing out the darkness under your eyes for a refreshing & rejuvenated look. Just make sure you dive into a little research beforehand to ensure you find the best color for your skin tone. And then you’re on your way to a more handsome, & youthful looking you!

COLLECTIONLasting Perfection ConcealerBoy De Chanel FoundationNow this is where we separate the men from the boys! It’s simple — boys tend to get intimated by the word ‘foundation’, while men on the other hand own it! Don’t worry, we’re not going to recommend something that will make it obvious you’re wearing it, rather we’re going to recommend one that offers you a tint for more even-looking skin, & can help you to cover up any flaws you may be self-conscious about, which is why we we want to recommend our boy Boy De Chanel. This long-lasting, light-weight formula gives the illusion to perfect-looking skin for all skin types! Say goodbye to tired, wrinkly, aged skin — & hello to that youthful glow! Not only will Boy De Chanel hydrate your skin like crazy, but it’s specifically designed to give you a very natural appearance so you don’t have to feel weird wearing it. e.l.f. Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20Okay — if you’re totally against using anything with the word ‘makeup’ in it in any way shape or form, tinted moisturizer is going to be the one for you! While men can argue with using makeup, they can’t argue with moisturizer, as this literally is used for people of all ages and gender for hydrated & healthy skin. Using a tinted moisturizer is perfect for a no-makeup look, as this helps to even out the redness & colors of your skin to create a more even appearance. An excellent one that many men swear by is e.l.f. Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20. This one is a huge hit amongst men because it is super budget-friendly, & a great product to ease into for a first-time makeup guru. There’s many different types of natural-looking makeup out there that are perfect for men, but a great start to that is with the provided information above! Whether you’re the boys or not, these products are all fantastic for incorporating into your routine.
A Journey of Self 🌹
I figured Black History Month was as good as any opportunity to talk about my self finding. Growing up in a small yet old family, I always had questions about my roots and family history. I also struggled with self conscious doubts about my appearance. Why is my nose this big? Why is my hair this curly? Why am I taller than average? These weighed heavy on my mind growing up because honestly, sticking out sucked. So, I finally dove deep into my family’s origin and decided to do an Ancestry DNA analysis. I immersed myself with every corner of the site. I only got the chance to finish my maternal grandmas side of the family tree, but even that has plenty of gaps. Yet, when I received my DNA results I was stoked. Then I realized, I don’t know much about any of these places. So I dug even deeper. I have a little journal of things I’ve learned and want to know, but this was quite the experience. It was heartbreaking and satisfying at the same time. I highly recommend for every race and background to do this DNA Test. The best part of this was scrolling through photos of the people of the respected countries I was DNA matched to. I swear I saw a girl who looked like me, but everyone else thinks I’m tripping lol. In the end, I’m satisfied with my results and findings. Relatively speaking, this way of self discovery has been the most effective.
Skin Barrier Skin Savior 🙏🏾
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩🤩 Something thing I am very particular about is my moisturizer. My skin barrier tends need the extra TLC and the best thing to give it is moisture. So when I look for a moisturizer I need something that gives me instant hydration and doesn’t clog my pores. So when I received the : BASE BUTTER - Radiate Face Jelly Aloe Vera Gel Face Moisturizer I was so excited! The Brand : ✨Black Owned ✨Women Owned ✨Cruelty Free ✨Non-Comedogenic ✨Vegan ✨Paraben Free 🔑 Ingredients : ✨Aloe Vera Juice ✨Shea Butter ✨Evening Primrose Oil Okay, as you can see your girl woke up DULL! The only thing I did for this video was wash my face and use this to show y’all the transformation! I was using this EVERY night but last night I used my acne treatment routine and your girl FELT THAT (salicylic acid can be so drying to my combo skin). What’s my favorite part? This baby doesn’t have a smell or heavy greasy feel, so it perfect year round! At $21 this is a DEAL ! (The line I used on my cheek covered the entire bottom portion of my face!) Have you tried this brand?

Drunk Elephant- The Littles 🐘
I won this cute little kit in a raffle & I couldn’t be more thankful! I have always wanted to try these products but never wanted to spend the money on all of them incase I didn’t like them! Inside this kit are the following products: DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 That’s literally a whole skincare routine! So far I started out my day with one of Drunk Elephants infamous “Face Smoothies” I washed my face with Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser & then combined C-Firma Day Serum, Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil, & Protini Polypeptide Cream together on my mixing trey with a disposable skincare spatula! I applied it all over my face & neck. Once that absorbed, I applied Umbra Tinte Daily Defense SPF 30 over my face & neck & was done! I love how the kit comes with steps to walk you through different routines you can use in the morning or at night! I will do a follow up review after I have used all the products for a few weeks! But so far, my skin feels & looks great! I have been breaking out lately & haven’t felt the best about my skin so I really needed this pick me up!! Thank you for reading! You guys are the best!! ❤️ @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
HOLY GRAIL SPF 🌞🌞🌞
Okay guys as I have said before I am guilty of rarely ever wearing sunscreen. I just never liked the feel of it on my skin. I always felt like it made me greasy & clogged my pores. However, once I heard about this product I was very intrigued. NIOD - Survival 30 It actually isn’t sold in the United States for some reason so I had to purchase it on a UK website. (Beauty Bay) It is an antioxidant serum with SPF 30. At first, it appears to be tinted but it’s actually not. On NIOD’s website they state: “The slight tinted appearance is derived from the active technologies including Lutein, Fractionated Melanin and Pycnogenol.” It blends in with your skin so easily & does not leave a white cast like some other SPF products. However this serum literally makes my skin tone soo even & perfect! It also contains silicone so it completely smooths over my pores. AND besides all that great stuff, it’s a mineral sunscreen! So it protects against environmental & lifestyle issues. Like UV rays, blue light, etc. I have never loved a product as much as this one! I literally cannot believe how good my skin looks while using this stuff! For a 30ml bottle, I paid $33 on the Beauty Bay site. For me, that is completely worth it! It comes in this adorable packaging & pretty glass bottle. It also has a pump dispenser & squirts out the perfect amount for a single use! I really can’t recommend this stuff enough guys! It’s wonderful!! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
