There it is, in all its subtle, non-attention grabbing, sleek container glory. Is it a mascara? Is it an eye makeup primer? Nope! I’m talking about the eyelash serum that can give our lashes the strengthening, lengthening, and curling power it needs without the regular expensive trips to the lash bar. So, what is it? What does it do? Is it really effective? How long until we see some results? And most importantly, where can we get it? I know, you’re all excited and curious about this It product. One of the most innovative inventions in the beauty department is the eyelash growth serum. With its help, us mortals are able to have those defined, dramatic, and long lashes, and keeping them healthier at the same time. What is an eyelash growth serum and what’s inside it? If you’re a fan of long lashes, trust me, you’re not alone. Although the inexpensive falsies that you apply yourself before a fun night-out is a trusted way to have that sought-after voluminous eyelashes, it damages your natural lashes in time. Same goes for the pricey eyelash extensions you have at your monthly salon visits. Both practices tamper with the natural moisture and health of your lashes. As more and more beauty aficionados are going au naturel when it comes to amplifying our God-given features, more natural options are getting conveniently available in the market to achieve the things we want beauty-wise. Eyelash growth serums come with peptides that nourish and repair the hair follicles of our lashes, making them stronger and healthier. Some variants come with collagen that are aimed at giving that desired lash volume. Others even come with the current hyped skincare ingredient, hyaluronic acid for maximum moisture. Why do I need it?We’re all fans of curling and straightening our hair using hot tools, because #goodhairday is the goal right? But even when we do this regularly, we make sure that we condition our hair to prevent it from being damaged by heat. We nourish it by using hair masks, conditioners, leave-in serums etc. Why not do the same for our lashes? Unfortunately, our BFFs such as volumizing mascaras, falsies, and eyelash extensions destroy the natural state of our lashes. It sucks out its moisture leaving our natural lashes brittle, dry, and weak. Eyelash growth serums, on the other hand, brings back the moisture loss and repairs the damages from all our beauty sins in the past years (or even decades for some of us #guilty). Sounds too good to be true? Read more to know if it’s indeed effective. Is it safe and really effective?It’s always better to check with your doctor to see if you don’t have any allergies to prevent any health problems or disruption in your daily itinerary. Over-the-counter products are conveniently available for all the Cherie beauty fans here, but there’s only one FDA-approved product in the market so far. So if you want to be on the safe side, have a side trip to your doctor first. According to the founder of Sugarlash ProR, eyelash serum is vital to helping our lashes grow in its growth phase before it naturally falls out. So basically, it prolongs not just the length of our lashes, but their lifespan too.How long until I see results?Just like any regime, you have to stick to it to see results. However there’s no such thing as natural immediate results. Applying it on a daily basis should be a part of your morning skincare routine if you’d like to see results a month after the first swipe. Some users have reported to wait until three months to see results. Patience is indeed a virtue. Which one should I buy?The vegan lash enhancer: LASHFOOD Phyto-Medic Eyelash Enhancer

GRANDE COSMETICSGrandeLASH-MD Lash Enhancing SerumIf you’ve just gone on a trip to the salon for your regular eyelash primping treatment and you’ve read this article, don’t fret! You can still use an eyelash growth serum even when you have extensions using this much-raved product. Cost-effective yet works fabulously: RapidLash Eyelash Enhancing Serum
RapidLashEyelash & Eyebrow Enhancing SerumPrice doesn’t always dictate the effectiveness of a product. Some cheaper options are actually far better than its expensive counterparts. Case in point, this superb eyelash serum that combines the power of glycerin and soybean oil for an ultra hydrating formula. I believe in the power of flirty and long lashes- they come in handy for those I’m too lazy to put on makeup days. Plus, they keep our hair up there healthy, strong, and moisturized. Traditional lengthening ways such as falsies, extensions, and the ever-reliable mascara can do damage in those precious hairs that frame up our pretty peepers. Eyelash growth serums are the healthier and more natural alternative to long, luscious, and lovely eyelashes- just the way we like them.

2021 Fashion Week Inspired Makeup - Hermès
This look is inspired by models for Hermes for 2021 spring/summer fashion week. This look focuses on super dewy skin and a bold, red lip as the center of attention. This look was really easy to recreate and something I would actually rock IRL (except for the lack of mascara because mascara is bae). I’ve included the inspo photo from Allure. To add a glowy base to my complexion, I used Glossier. - Futuredew Oil Serum Hybrid . I only ever use 1 pump of this oil-serum hybrid because I think any more makes me look like a grease ball. I applied this all over my face and dabbed a tiny amount onto my eyelids. This product is perfect for applying on bare skin, under makeup, and can even be used over makeup for a natural, wet-looking highlight. After I applied my complexion products, I dabbed a tiny amount onto the high points of my cheekbones. Sticking with the dewy theme, I used the ILIA - Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 in “balos”. I’m not sure if the models were wearing complexion products because their skin looked super natural, yet also “flawless”. Since I have some redness on my cheeks, I used this skin tint to even out my skin tone and amp up the dew. I lightly concealed underneath my eyes with the e.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer in “light peach”. The models don’t appear to be wearing any cheek products, though I did add a tiny bit of AOA studio - Sculpt FX Contour in “fawn” to help sculpt my cheeks a tiny bit like the models. I finished the look off with the SEPHORA COLLECTION - Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick in “always red”. I’ve had a mini of this for quite a while. It’s beautiful, comfortable despite being matte, does leave a tint behind, and is long-wearing. This is the kind of lipstick that would last from the runway well into the after party (in non-COVID times, of course). The models don’t appear to be wearing any mascara, so I skipped that. I filled in my brows a bit more than usual for a fuller appearance. I used the essence - Superlast Eyebrow Pomade Pencil in “dark brown”. Such a fun look! You guys it’s sooo hard not to smile. How do models do it?! 🤪 Look for another fashion week look soon. All brands are cruelty-free except for Sephora Collection. Prices: futuredew $24, skin tint $46, concealer $6, contour stick $1, lip stain (full size) $15, brow pencil $3.50 #Cherie Partner

Never Give Up On Your Skin
Looking at my unfiltered photo you may be thinking that I don’t suffer from cystic acne but I do and I did. In my early teens my skin was PERFECT. By college, I would get 1-2 pimples near the time where my red seas be flowing. In my early 20s and as I’ve aged it got worse. I experienced enlargement of pores, cystic acne, blackheads on a repeat vicious cycle. Now in my late 20’s I combat all of those knowing that I’m a combination type. I did Seeing as my skincare was considered a bar of soap, I set out on my skin journey. Trying products that were absolutely no good. Yes, I trotted to Target and have picked up Clean & Clear. I’ve gone down the road and used the St. Ives Scrub 👀 Do I have to wash make up off every night? 😖 I remember feeling lost and down in the dumps, frustrated because I couldn’t see results. Mistaking tightness as a measure of effectivity, I suffered from dryness. Causing my skin to produce more oils, I made my pores bigger. 😟 To this day my pores on my nose and cheeks are still very visible to me. Popped too many a pimple because I couldn’t resist.✖️✖️✖️ I do Throughout every mistake I became motivated to learn. This was my skin and certainly if it’s mine then it’s within my control. I obsessed because I feel that the more time I spend on it, the more beneficial it will be for me and my well being. Sometimes that means breaking the bank 🏦 and sometimes you put on your cheap skates. 💨 Through my visits at the dermatologist and guidance from my mom, I’ve come to accept so much despite feeling like giving up. 🔚 Lessons Along The Way No one is going to get as close to my face as I do to a mirror before my shower 🛀. Unless you’re my husband who smooches me and always tells me I’m beautiful. 🥺 No one is going to have that much motivation to look at my picture and zoom x100000000 magnification 🔍 on it just to count my pores. Just because it says pore clearing or acne treatment whatever marketing buzzword does not mean that it’s good for you. There are skincare products that can make it worse. Even just by going with good reviews, checking the ingredients is worth the while. Put those ugly products into permanent purgatory. 🗑 After enough time and patience, results will slowly show more and more each day. Scars that existed no longer existed. Deeper scars that start to look smaller. There are no days off to application or improving my routine. You will CONQUER and tame this beast you call skin! ⚔️ I’m glad that there’s a medium to express what’s helped me along the way. I’m also here to learn more from the community. All I know is what I’ve learnt so far and I’m so happy to share that I couldn’t believe this is my 50th post on Cherie! 🥳 Accept and love your skin, show yourself the patience you deserve. Thank you so much for reading. But most of all beside those lessons, I should have never forgotten the sunblock. 🤣 You live and you learn.
