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.

What it means to blowdry down the hair cuticle!
What it means to blowdry down the hair cuticle!
Let’s simplify what it means when a hairstylist says to blow dry down the hair cuticle: When you think of your hair, think of the shingles on a roof. They’re all laying down but on top of each other. The cuticle of our hair is doing the same! When we blow dry up or at the hair cuticle, it causes all those little shingles to stand up- causing frizz, loss of moisture, and hair damage. When we blow dry down the hair cuticle, all the shingles can lay flat against each other and be the protective barrier that they’re supposed to be. If you’re having trouble with extra frizz or loss of moisture pay attention to the direction that your blow drying. This could make all the difference!

Cleanse your skin like a pro

Cleansing is the first step of any skin regime, and it's essential to your skin's health that it is done correctly.⁠ ⁠ Cleansing the skin removes makeup, sunscreen, and impurities/pollution built up from the day. ⁠ ⁠ Always use a Ph balanced cleanser to avoid compromising your skin's barrier.⁠ ⁠ I generally switch out my gel cleanser for milk or balm in the winter months as my skin becomes drier. I find milk or balms more hydrating and soothing for the skin. ⁠ ⁠ My go-to right now is BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - Lait Vip O2 Oxygenating Milk Cleanser paired with either the mini glove Biologique Recherche or the Luna Cleaning tool FOREO - LUNA Mini 2 Facial Cleansing Brush Fuchsia to aid deeper cleaning and increase blood circulation while massaging the skin.⁠ ⁠ Try not to skip cleansing at night no matter how sleepy you are, sleeping with your makeup on goes far beyond clogged pores. Sleeping with your makeup on in the long term will prematurely age your skin due to the breakdown of collagen from environmental pollutants left on the skin.⁠ ⁠ Always cleanse your skin twice at night. Double cleansing is key in removing makeup and sunscreen effectively.⁠ Makeup and sunscreen are designed to stick to the skin, and one cleanse just not going to cut it.⁠ ⁠ Use colder water, never hot water to cleanse your skin. Heat is not your skin's friend; it can cause tewl (transepidermal water loss), lead to irritation, dehydration and sensitivity.⁠ ⁠ Avoid cleansing the skin in the shower, the water is generally too hot, and the shower's pressure can lead to burst vessels.⁠ ⁠ Pat dry, do not aggressively rub your skin with a towel - I hear too many times people rub their skin aggressively with a dry face cloth to exfoliate the skin - stop it. Be gentle with your skin; there are better ways to exfoliate your skin - trust me.⁠ ⁠ Which moves me on to P50 lotions BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - LOTION P50 PIGM 400 Follow your cleansing routine with the correct P50 lotion for your skin type. ⁠ P50 lotion is a gentle but effective way to exfoliate, hydrate the skin while maintaining the skin's Ph and respecting its barrier function. ⁠ My go-to P50 right now is Pig400 which also targets hyperpigmentation concerns.⁠ ⁠ More tips and tricks on cleansing the skin below https://www.kimberlydematos.com/post/the-art-of-cleansing ⁠ Dm for p50 recommendations.⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠
