Lucky for you, Cherie is always there with the best and useful tips and tricks to solve all your problems, no matter health, beauty, fitness, or anything else bugging you.Why You Need Super Long Lasting Makeup?We understand that you have a lot on your plate to worry about on a daily basis, and we don’t want makeup to be one of your worries. Sometimes, just knowing how to apply your makeup beautifully isn’t enough. You need to know the important details and methods to make sure you apply a super long-lasting makeup that can stay the entire day. Below are some tips to keep your makeup looking fresh and sharp throughout the day. Many celebrity makeup artists, licensed estheticians, Instagram beauty influencers, beauty enthusiasts, and Cherie swear by. So, let’s get to the chase without further due!1. Spend Time Prepping Your SkinSetting the base for your makeup is the most crucial factor in ensuring the smooth application and longevity of your makeup. So, don’t hustle! Take your time to look after your skin and keep it in its best condition. Start by cleansing your skin with a nourishing and hydrating cleanser to draw out sebum, grime, bacteria, and any other impurities. The next step is exfoliating away the dead, dry outer layer of the skin. Finally, deeply hydrate and moisturize your skin. Viola! You’re all set to proceed with your makeup routine. Pro tip: Always use skincare products specifically formulated for your individual skin type and concerns. The wrong products might lead to problematic skin and, ultimately, disastrous makeup.2. Prime for Perfect Foundation Face and eye primers are a great way of making sure your makeup doesn’t slip or move around, and everything glides smoothly on top. If you have oily skin, go for a mattifying, oil-free, ad water-based face primer to avoid melty and shiny mess during the hot days. For those of you with enlarged pores, a primer that fills your pores and fine lines is the best option. For dry and dehydrated skin, apply a nourishing and moisturizing primer to provide your skin the much-needed hydration throughout the day and avoid patchy foundation. A moisturizing primer is also great if you want a luminous glow on your face. Similarly, an eye primer helps with the flawless application of eyeshadow and prevents smudging or creasing. It’s ideal to try a few different formulas and find the primer that works best for you. A good primer can be a game-changer.3. Use a Long Wear Foundation and Concealer It’s needless to say that a long-wear foundation that suits your specific skin type and blurs or hides your skin’s imperfections is essential for long-lasting makeup. Liquid foundations, in particular, offer versatility and flawless application. An oil-free formula lasts longer and there are lesser chances of it sliding off your face during the day. There are many brands that offer long-lasting versions of liquid foundations that claim to stay for as long as up to 24 hours. Once you’re done with your foundation, follow with a long-lasting concealer. Applying the concealer before foundation may drag it around as you apply the rest of the makeup on top and diminish its purpose.4. Apply Your Makeup in Layers Another way of making your makeup stays all day is by applying the foundation and concealer in light layers instead of a single thick layer. Heavier and thicker layers are more likely to set in your pores and fine lines, giving a cake-face appearance. Also, if you want a smooth and texture-free application, use a good quality brush or beauty sponge to layer your foundation. It will give a more natural look, prevent creasing or caking, and your foundation will last a lot longer. 5. Set Your Liquid or Cream Makeup with Loose Powder Your liquid or cream products can move around during the day, making your makeup fade, crease, or smudge. Make sure to set them with a lightweight loose powder that matched the shade of your foundation and concealer or use a transparent formula. Pressed powders often contain oil and provide a heavier application, while loose powder makes it feel like you’re not wearing anything excessive on your face. Simply use a soft powder brush and dust a small amount of loose powder on top of your foundation, focusing on the areas that tend to get greasy. This can make your face look shine-free and fresh throughout the whole day along with allowing the makeup to hold beautifully.6. Use Waterproof Eye ProductsWhat can be a better way to boost your look than flawless eye makeup that accentuates the natural beauty of your eyes? For this reason, it’s crucial to choose a waterproof eyeliner and mascara that can stand through all your daily activities other than making your eyes look dazzling. Believe us, the last thing you’d want is smudgy eyeliner or mascara. Never neglect what you put on your eyebrows as they are one of the most prominent features on your face that people notice. To achieve well-sculpted and thick eyebrows, use a waterproof pomade or eyebrow pencil followed by a colored eyebrow gel to hold your brows in place all day long. Additionally, spritz your eyeshadow brush with a priming spray to ensure smooth and pigmented eye makeup. This tip is particularly useful while applying shimmery eyeshadows.7. Apply Your Lipstick the Right Way It’s super important to exfoliate and moisturize your lips if you’re looking for giving a lasting and smooth finish to your lipstick. Dry, chapped, and dehydrated lips may cause flaking and cracking of your lipstick. Moreover, avoid oil-based lip products as they are usually not very long-lasting. Start by applying a lip pencil to outline the lips and prevent your lipstick from moving around. Preferably, choose a matt lipstick because they are prolonged wear and don’t smudge. But if you’re more into satin finish lipsticks, find a long-lasting formula and apply it in layers. Apply one layer of lipstick, blot with a tissue, and dust a thin layer of translucent powder. Repeat until you achieve the opacity you desire. 8. Seal with a Makeup Setting Spray This essential step that ensures long-lasting makeup during the day is often overlooked. Makeup setting spray is makeup professionals’ favorite product to ensure the longevity of their makeup, especially if the client has to attend an all-day event. Other than locking your makeup in place, makeup setting spray refreshes the makeup and gives an illuminating appearance to your skin. Also, it can provide an airbrushed effect, leading to smooth and spotless makeup that lasts all day long. You can choose from mattifying, hydrating, and illuminating formulas, depending on your specific needs and skin type.9. Blot Your Face with a Sponge of Blotting Paper It’s quite common to get shiny and greasy T-zone area during the day, no matter how hard you try to avoid it, especially if you have very oily skin. So, always keep a beauty sponge or blotting papers with you. Both these products work effectively to soak up excess oil and make your complexion products look as good as they were at the start of the day. However, use gentle pressing motions to cut the shine without ruining or swiping off the makeup from your face.10. Keep Your Hands Off Your Face No matter how trivial it may seem, but the fact is that this simple tip works magic to make your makeup stay throughout the day. For starters, touching your face repeatedly may cause your makeup to smudge or come off. Besides, you might have bacteria and toxins collected on your hands through your exposure to various factors during the day. These bacteria can transfer to your skin by touching and lead to blemishes and acne breakouts.Cherie understands that it can be annoying to spend all the time applying your makeup only to find it disappear a few hours later. We believe that choosing the right products and using the best makeup tricks and techniques can take your makeup game up a notch. So, pay close attention to all the nitty-gritty details mentioned above when you’re in front of the mirror doing your makeup next time. We hope this article will help you rock a seamless makeup look throughout the day.

I know so many people haven’t had the chance to really dress up during covid and wear any makeup at all even with all the releases😭 Sometimes there are so many releases that it gets hard to keep track of everything and to really know where to spend your money so I’m here to tell you, this is where you really should 💸 Ived followed Vesca Beauty on IG since another influencer mentioned the bronzer like they originally released and the inclusivity with the shades really was the hype! Not only that but the inclusion and the quality of the products were amazing too so it’s a win win!🥳 After getting my hands on the two launches they had, I knew I needed more so I went out and bought their new highlighters and their latest release with their lip oils! 👏🏽 so here are some initial thoughts When it came to the lip oils, I really didn’t think much, I thought they maybe too slippery but that brown shade was calllllling my name and I knew I needed it and honestly it looked so beautiful on their model, I decided to go for it! ✊🏽 and I have to say, this is my new GO TO lip product! I’ve been obsessed with the fenty gloss bombs for years now but this has kind of replaced it for the time being VESCA - Lush Glow Creamy Lip Oil they are legging luscious like the name and super moisturizing and hydrating and pack a punch with colour but you can wear it sheer as well! I mean they are so soft and velvety without feeling like their is a ton of product on the lips! I’m thoroughly surprised As for the their highlighters, I really like the shade but just haven’t been able to play with them as much but they do have a a very buttery formula when using your fingers so as a eyeshadow, this will be gorgeous VESCA - Stargaze Luminous Glow I didn’t expect anything less from such an amazing brand and the size of these are just right as well! Not too big yet not tiny either cause really, who actually finishes an entire highlighter?🤭😉 #cheriepartner

Look at this awesome close up of the AMOREPACIFIC - Color Control Cushion Compact Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 50 😍 I have this thing called Trypophobia (fear of small holes) but for some reason this close up just fascinates me. You can really see the luminescence of the foundation within the sponge! For those of you who aren’t familiar with CC formulas/cushion foundation, they are typically a smoother, more liquid-like formula than your average foundation that is made to even out skintone. Most true CC formulations focus more on skincare elements and a wee bit less on color/color ranges, especially those from Korean brands. Western brands definite amp up the diversity of their skintone range, as well as overall pigmentation in their formulas. This means you’ll find more full-coverage CC cream/foundation from “western” brands like IT Cosmetic’s it Cosmetics - it Cosmetics CC+ Cream SPF 50+ . (Not my favorite for dry skin. I felt like the Sahara Desert all over again when I used their formula 🙄) Therefore, it might be difficult to find a shade that fits you if you have a deeper skintone. Side note: I consider IT cosmetics to be a western brand because upon a bit of research, the company was bought by L’Oréal and the products are mostly manufactured in China. I love this foundation for super dry skin because of how moisturizing it is. It’s awesome for creating that second-skin finish with a natural, dewy glow. If you have light-medium with slight neutral-gold undertones and struggle with a bit of texture, this foundation line could work well for you! Every time I try something new or I’m stuck in a rut, I always go back to this foundation. I love the ease of use and blendability. The size is great for travel and I find that it doesn’t bother my dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin. You can get a medium to slightly buildable full coverage without “erasing” the dimension/shadows in your face. Even though it has SPF it doesn’t wash my face out completely and doesn’t create a white cast. If there is any, it’s only slightly noticeable. You would have to look reeeaaally close to see it. Layering on powder/cream products are a breeze. I found the best way to use this product is with a slightly damp beauty blender. Start by placing a little bit onto the skin and then proceed to layer more as needed. There is something to be mindful of when you are using this product. If you live in a more humid/moist climate, I would add a little powder after your face primer and then proceed to add this foundation to help keep this in place throughout the day. You could also carry a powder puff with you throughout the day for touch-ups. Because the foundation has high moisture and provides a dewy finish, it can impact the longevity if you live in an moist/humid area 😊 Yay to a healthy glow! ❤️😄
