Cherie is an online community of beauty lovers sharing their stories; whether that's their favorite products, makeup tutorials, or skincare routines. Download the app today to be a part of #BeautyWithoutBarriers and show the world what beauty means to you!Everyone gets pimples, or wants to put on a little extra shine to their face every once and a while – men included! Despite this fact, we know that a lot of times, makeup is usually marketed towards women, and when you think of it, you think of girls, not guys. And we just think that isn’t fair! No matter what you use makeup for guys, it should be just as easy to buy for you as it is for us. That’s why we created this helpful guide that goes over our favorite makeup looks and brands for any occasion. And best of all, they’re all natural, so your skin (and the earth) will thank you for it!Ilia’s Limitless Lash MascaraMan, woman, or however you identify yourself, everyone loves it when their eyes just POP and look gorgeous. And this mascara will help you get there! It’s so amazing it’s basically a cult favorite in the best makeup circles. Known for lifting and creating a curl – all while holding it – this mascara is made of completely natural ingredients. There’s keratin, which will help to fortify and grow your lashes, and shea butter, which helps lift those lashes up and keep ‘em there. Because of the natural ingredients, this mascara will feel super lightweight. The brush is also awesome too, since it’s double sided, and will make sure that every lash gets covered. We can’t recommend it enough! Lawless’s The One Eyeshadow PaletteTo keep up with this eye trend, and make your eyes leave an impression, we chose this eye shadow pallet. Not only does it have 18 different colors to go with literally any occasion, but it’s completely cruelty-free, so you don’t have to worry about it being tested on Fluffy. Because of the variety of shades, you can find any color you may need, whether you’re going for a neutral look, or something that’s super eye-catching (yes that was a pun). It’s also really easy to blend, so don’t feel the need to purchase expensive brushes to go with it. Honestly, you can’t go wrong!
LAWLESSThe One Eyeshadow PaletteRMS’s Beauty Un Cover-Up Concealer/FoundationAs we said, we all know that we get pimples, regardless of gender. This is one of our fave natural products for men (and women!) that’s great at covering up those natural imperfections without breaking the bank or destroying your skin. It’s great for those under-eye areas, and is super duper light, so you won’t feel like you have anything on your face. Not only will it cover things up, it’ll also give you a glow, and make your skin look healthy and natural! Another great thing about this product is that it works well for all skin types, whether you have oily, dry, normal, or combination skin. And because it’s got coconut oil in it, it smells super yummy and makes your skin look fresh and healthy! Just make sure you use it with a powder so that it’ll give you that all-day glow.
rms beautyUn" Cover-Up Cream FoundationTarte’s SEA Water Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15If you’re looking for something with a little more coverage to put on instead of or in addition to RMS’s concealer, look no further. We absolutely LOVE Tarte products, and this foundation is no exception. It’s medium coverage, so you likely won’t need to add anything additional, outside of a setting powder. It’s also liquid, and spreads super easily. In terms of the ingredients, one of the reasons we love this foundation so much is because it’s not only hypoallergenic, but it’s also vegan too! It’s essentially only made of water (which will help your skin stay moisturized), marine plant extract (which keeps your skin buoyant, and helps get rid of those wrinkles and fine lines), and vitamin E (which keeps your skin looking natural). Best of all, it’s got SPF, so you can protect that gorgeous face from the sun!ILIA’s Multi-StickWe love this product not only because it’s basically all in one, but because it’s all natural too! You can use this product both for your cheeks – to give them a healthy flush – and your lips – to give them a rosy glow. This stuff is super breathable and very blendable, so again, you won’t need to buy a crazy expensive brush to put it on. And when it comes to what’s in this product, you can breathe easy with that too! This stick’s got avocado, to protect your cheeks and lips from the weather and outdoors, orange peel wax, which will hydrate your skin, and shea butter, which will nourish it. The colors (there are eight of them) are super flattering on pretty much any skin tone too. If you’ve got sensitive skin, make this your next beauty purchase!Everyone should feel free to buy any makeup they want so they can look and feel their best, regardless of gender. Makeup is literally for everyone, and we want guys out there to know that! So if you’re in the market for some makeup that is not only great for your skin, but also good for the environment, look no further than this list. We made sure to include all of our favorite natural brands, so guys out there can breathe new life into their looks!
My AM routine while rocking cherie merch!
@cheriethanks for the cute sweatshirt! I am obsessed. Here is my am routine! sisley - FLORAL TONING LOTION First I tone and prep my skin with this toner. I love this toner so much because it is so hydrating and doesn’t strip the skin. It also moisturizes while helping to clean and prep it to absorb other products. NATURIUM - Hyaluronic Acid Essence 2% Then I use this essence. I love this brand so much and this essence is so hydrating and light. It helps plump and prepares it for the serum. NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% Next I use this serum which I have been enjoying. It is super gentle that I can even use it during the day. So far my skin has been tolerating it very well. I also notice my dark spots decreasing much quicker. LORD JONES - Acid Mantle Repair CBD Moisturizer Then I use this moisturizer that I am obsessed with. It so far has been my favorite product of the year. It’s so hydrating and calming. It feels amazing on the skin as well. Last I finish off with a sunscreen. I previously reviewed this before! It’s from Korean brand Corthe. ^^ what do you like to do in your morning routine?
A Year in review!
This year has definitely been a wild ride. I’ve learned so much more about my hair and skin in this last year than I ever thought I would or needed to know! All the way from using witch hazel and not paying attention to my curl pattern, to staying completely fragrance free with face products and staying away from harsh toners and paying attention to what my hair was trying to do! Using this app has really opened doors for me that I wouldn’t thought possible for my beauty process! I can’t wait to see what more years bring me, and us! Thank you @cherie!
Curology vs The Ordinary! Which is better?!
Curology - Curology formula This is the first photo! Did wonders for my skin it was the best it had ever been since I started getting acne in middle school. Curology literally saved my skin, it was clear and great! (Over a year later) The second photo:/ I decided to stop using curology around 2 months ago and start using ordinary products. I decided to do this because I wanted to see if the ordinary could do the same thing as curology and maybe make my skin even better. This wasn’t because curology was bad or anything It was just something I wanted to test. I was pretty confident in my skin so I didn’t think it would be bad. I saw on social media how great it was so I figured why not? ... After slowly introducing ordinary products into my skincare routine to ( i used both ordinary and curology products together) I could see that my skin was breaking out more when I introduced the ordinary products. I didn’t think much of it cause I knew that my skin was just purging from the new products. After about 2 months of using both curology and ordinary products I decided to just try ordinary products because my skin was breaking out a lot and I felt that the ordinary would help it. (I think should’ve stuck with curology but this was just my curiosity about the product). ... (Now) I am on week 6 of using all ordinary products and this is what my skin looks like (photo 2) and I’m not happy with the results:/The first couple weeks I knew I would be purging, my skin was at its worst a couple weeks ago (week 3). But I figured that by now or next week my skin would be clear( the only reason I felt that my skin would be pretty much clear by now or next week was because while using curology all my acne was gonna by week 7). So I’m still trying to figure out if I wanna continue to use the ordinary products for a couple more weeks before I give up because it’s not giving me the results I want. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I don’t really know how to rate this because obviously it hasn’t worked for my skin very well but I’m not sure if it’s because my skin needs more time to adjust (it has been 6 weeks so...). I think that this product works great for some people but for me definitely not. Right from the start of using it, it broke me out and then once I only used this line of products it made my skin terrible. I also used The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution Which didn’t do much in the 6weeks I used it. I did feel like it helped my acne a little. Overall I really did wish this line of products would help my acne and make my skin clear like curology but that wasn’t the case. This product line is definitely not for my skin. I’ll write out my skin care routine comparisons in my next post!
3 Easy Ways to Volumize Your Hair
Hair concerns: Flat, Thin These are my 3 quick, go-to hair tips for volumizing my hair! This is great for when you’re on the go and don’t have too much time on your hands. 1. Use a Root Volumizer Hot Tool (Bed Head Little Tease Hair Crimper for Outrageous Texture and Volume) - Using this root volumizer hot tool will give you the volume of teased hair without the tangled knots and hairspray. It works by making small crimps or waves in your hair and gives your roots volume from the texture it creates. Just make sure to cover your roots with a layer of hair to conceal the textured areas. - Directions: Clamp the hot tool at your roots, brush it out with your fingers, and cover it with a layer of hair. Spray a moderate amount of hair spray to keep it in place. 2. Dry Shampoo - Thin, flat hair usually looks lifeless because of the lack of texture and thinness of the hair shaft. This means that having freshly washed hair can actually be your worst enemy if you’re going for a volumized look. Adding in a hair product can help at the roots by allowing for your hair to be styled into place. You can use any texturizing spray to do so, but I like to use dry shampoo especially for second-hair days! It helps soak up the oils in my hair as well as volumizing my roots. - Directions: Use any dry shampoo your own and spray onto your roots and brush it out. 3. Hair Extensions - Adding hair extensions onto your head will effortlessly give the illusion that your hair is much thicker than it actually is. The added layers will make the roots of your hair appear uplifted. You can choose from lengthening hair extensions (like mine) or extensions that match your hair length. Either way, it’ll make your hair on your head look much fuller. - Directions: Use clip-in hair extensions and clip it onto your roots. Cover the clip-ins with a layer of hair and spray hairspray it to keep it in place. #cheriepartner #sponsored
Sensitive Skin Game changer ❄️
What is the product? Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spray How does it work? Thermal Water works by soothing the skin and calming any irritation What are the notable ingredients? Mineral Spring Water What is the price? $18.50CAD Where can you purchase? Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall Pharmacy and online How long have I been using it for? I’ve been using thermal water for over two years, I started off using this product on my body and now still use it on my face What is my experience ? My experience with thermal water has been good, I suffer from eczema on both my body and face. It was hard finding products that wouldn’t irritate or cause a flare up. When that happened this product saved my skin and soothed it. At first I was not exactly sure how water would help my skin, but after doing research thermal waters are meant to have healing properties for the body and skin. What are my thoughts? This product is nothing short of amazing, you are able to use it for multiple areas and it lasts so long. The mist is super fine which makes it perfect for spraying on large or small spots, and pressing into the skin similar to how you apply a toner. Would I recommend to a friend? I would absolutely recommend this product to a friend or family or even someone looking to help soothe their skin but who doesn’t want to break the bank!! My overall rating? 5/5 Would I repurchase? I have and will continue to repurchase this product until I find something that exceeds how amazing this is! #CheriePartner
