Here’s my go-to for #WFH makeup. 💗 I don’t know about you, but at least every other day I like to wear some makeup, even if I don’t leave my house. It gives me a sense of routine. ⠀ ⠀ Plus, this one has sunscreen, as well as other anti-aging and antioxidants to help your skin at the same time. 🌟 ⠀ ⠀ What about you? Are you turning towards any Cc cream or foundation while at home?
I can’t be the only one who likes to wear a little “something something” even when I’m stuck at home all day right?! Even if it’s just covering up my blemishes, brushing up my brows and putting on a light layer of gloss, it always makes me feel better and become more productive. Here’s what I do most days: I love this high coverage concealer. I use the tiiiiniest amount just to pinpoint conceal any small scars or blemishes on my face. I don’t use this under my eyes because it’s way too heavy for that! It lasts so long on your face AND lasts you a while as a product too- I’ve been using this same tube for more than a year! (Yes, I should probably get a new one soon 🙃) I can’t stress how important brows are to your face. They add structure and frame the eyes! I don’t need much defining in my brows because I prefer a more natural look rather than super sculted- so a volumizing brow gel is perfect! This gel just beefs them up and adds a bit of color. A little gloss always makes me feel fresh and put together! This gloss isn’t sticky and gives quite a bit of color which I love. This red shade is also super flattering and extremely glossy!
I know during this time we all have to stay at home and no traveling, but I think we can also give ourselves some great makeup looks and take us back to the wonderful time we had. So today I want to share my go-to makeup that I always do when I go for a vacation. Because I hate winter and cold weathers, so I usually go to the warm places like island nations and beaches. The orange makeup will look beautiful under the sunshine and also a good choice for photoshoots. The first thing I want to mention is the foundation that I can’t live without, the All Hours Longwear Natural Matte Foundation from YSL in shade B20, $54 for 0.84oz/25ml. Even though I have dry skin, this long-wear foundation will not set in my smiling lines or pores, and it is definitely a full-coverage foundation that will cover up to 80%-90% of my pores, acne marks and dark circles. Besides, a little bit of this goes a long way, and a small pump is enough for me, so don’t waste! About the shades, I feel like this collection can be a little lighter than the other foundations of YSL, and B20 is a little bit lighter than my skin tone, so I recommend trying it in the store before purchasing. #YVES SAINT LAURENT - All Hours Longwear Natural Matte Foundation The next step is bronzer and blush, and they are both from Colourpop. I always put them in a pan so I can carry them during traveling. I use the Private Party bronzer and the So Retrograde blush. The bronzer will make my skin look warmer without being too orange or deep. And this shimmery blush is a burnt orange with gold pearl inside, so I can save the highlighter. The only thing I have to mention is that the blush is very pigment, so I only dip once and tap my brush before putting it on my face. #COLOURPOP - pressed powder blush For eye palette, I mentioned before that I always take the Whatever palette from Colourpop with me when I go for vacations, and I use the colors I marked in the picture to create a very easy but glam eye look. Finally, to match the topic, I will use a matte lipstick named Marrakesh from Mac Cosmetics, which is an orange-brown shade and has been very popular since it launched. And I feel like it will not dry my lips even it is a matte formula, which is nice because I will stay outside for a long time and don’t want to see my lips peeling. #MAC - Matte Lipstick Here are the products I use to create a quick and easy look for vacation, and I feel happy to do it again during this quarantine time, and I hope you enjoy it!
This is a very simple cheek/lip color combo I’ve been wearing lately when I want to feel cute even while stuck at home. I’m a light skinned Mexican girl and I have a sorta neutral, more yellow undertone so sometimes it’s hard to find cute pinks that look good on me but #Glossier. - Cloud Paint in puff is an exception! It’s such a pretty pink color and I’m a huge fan of the pillowy texture and how long they last. Probably my favorite Glossier makeup product. I like to pair a cute pink blush with just good ol’ clear lip gloss, I see it as such as a classic combo for me and it’s super girly. My favorite clear glosses at the moment are the #Glossier. - Lip Gloss and #KYLIE COSMETICS - High Gloss in ‘Crystal’. The Glossier gloss is really nice, applies nicely on the lips and doesn’t have added scent so it’s great of you’re sensitive to fragrance. It’s what I’m wearing on these photos 😌 The Kylie Cosmetics High Gloss is one of my favorite formulas ever, period. It’s such a nice gloss, super glossy and a lot less stickier than other glosses I’ve tried and at $16 isn’t super expensive plus it lasts a good while!
During social distancing, I’ve been trying to keep thinking positively through self care. I’ve been playing around with makeup and testing out new looks using products I already have at home. Enter: this foxy eye look which is a far cry from my usually minimalist “no makeup” makeup look. I’m pretty proud with how this turned out and it has some cool 90s vibes. Plus, it showcases some of my favorite (affordable) makeup products!
At home wellness: what does this mean to you? To me it means getting creative, unfortunately with my anxiety I had to take time off work because I work in health care were we are constantly working at it was too much for me with recent events. I think at home Wellness is being able to express myself through makeup because this makes me happy. Do you want to see more makeup looks ?

BYE BYE STATIC👋
Frizz and fly-aways happen to the best of us. No matter how often we moisturize our hair during the winter, escaping static electricity seems impossible. To better understand how to tame your hair static, you need to know a little bit more about what causes it. So, What Causes Hair Static? Static electricity is created when two objects rub against each other. This swap causes a kind of electric charge to build up on your hair. If there is humidity in the air, the charge can usually just go away on its own.🙏🏼 There’s many ways one can get rid of fly-aways and hair static…You can use hair oils, leave-in conditioners, there’s even some anti-frizz, anti-static hair products you can use. However, I have found a way that works best for me. I got this idea from celebrity hair stylist, Jen Atkin (founder and owner of OUAI). She says that one of the best ways to get rid of fly-aways and hair static is by using a blush brush and hairspray. I have very thick, curly and frizzy hair naturally. My fly-aways and static appear on either side of my parting and they normally appear straight after I wash and straighten my hair. All I want is a sleek smooth look, but these fly-aways always get in the way.🙄 #Sorbet - Flexible and Shine Hairspray[products]#[FiveStars] I use the Flexible and Shine Hairspray from Sorbet. I love this product because it keeps everything in place but doesn’t harden your hair (that’s the worst). I spray this hairspray onto a plain old (no name brand) blush brush, and slowly stroke down the strands of hairs that are static. This really does work like a bomb. You do have to go over the strands a couple of times until all of them are sleek and smoothed down. There’s my little trick of the day. Try it out and let me know if this hack works for you! Paula x
🌟💎 A hidden gem in cherie giveaway prize
This is my night skincare routine for oily, combination , acne prone skin. These products are so good and help me lots with painful acne around jawlines. 🧖🏻♀️I use #Senka - SENKA All Clear Water Micellar White[products]#[FiveStars] ove my makeup. I like this one because it has green tea in it and very suitable for combination acne prone skin. 💜 Next, I use TATCHA - The Rice Wash Soft Cream Cleanser aka the perfect winter cleanser. Even my usually oily skin likes this. It’s very gentle, smells so so nice and luxurious. Lathers beautiful but still creamy. It cleanses your face as it should but doesn’t dry your skin out during winter. 💆🏻♀️For acne treatment, I exfoliate withCOSRX - One Step Pimple Clear Pads 2x/week and use LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Adapalene Gel .01% Topical Retinoid Acne Treatment 3x/week but not in the same night. 🔥✨ Then we have this lovely moisturizer INDIE LEE - Daily Skin Nutrition I’ve tried many oil free moisturizer for my stubborn oily skin but nothing works. It’s always look dull and shiny in the afternoon. If you have the same issue this product is perfect for you. This moisturizer IMMEDIATELY sinks into your skin and keeps my skin hydrated all day. It makes my skin so soft, doesn’t feel sticky after applying, even suitable for sensitive skin. The only downside to this is it’s the scent. It smells kinda weird to me but will disappear after a few minutes. That’s all from me. Hope you like this post 😁 *Music: Together( Prod. by Lukrembo)
A quick Cheat guide to choosing the right Acid ✨
I find this Flowchart to be a cheat guide to start with your Chemical exfoliation routin. 😊✨ Exfoliation is one of the steps in your skin care routine that can elevate your current routine from good to great. So often I find my skin starting to feel a little bit dull, and I realize that I have been leaving out exfoliation. When I wake up after a night that I have applied a chemical exfoliant, (I really like The Ordinary’s 7% Glycolic Acid, Sunday Riley's Good Genes) The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes All in One Lactic Acid Treatment I notice my skin has a much more rested and fresh look. Also, my skin has that 'Glass skin' look and feel. My textural irregularities get even and my skin tone is evened out! Some of the skin concerns that exfoliation is great for targeting include: 🌻Enlarged pores 🌻Uneven skin tone/Hyperpigmentation 🌻Rough skin texture 🌻Fine lines So… back to the big question: ✨What does exfoliate mean? Skin is consistently renewing its cells, by shedding its surface layer. When dead skin cells are flushed away and a fresh layer of cells comes to the surface, the new layer is younger and smoother in appearance. This process is frequent in younger skin, however slows with age. The process of exfoliating is advancing the process of removing dead skin cells and revealing the fresh new layer of healthy skin either physically or chemically. Physical exfoliators are granular, using natural beads or crystals that are rubbed on the skin, sloughing away the dead cells on the top layer of skin. Chemical exfoliants work by targeting the bonds between cells, breaking these bonds, allowing the dead skin cells to break away. Chemical exfoliation is able to penetrate deeper into the skin, targeting congestion that is associated with clogged pores leading to acne. In short exfoliation simply means to shed away dead skin cells with the help of a product. Want to know which exfoliating acids are best for your skin? Follow through the flowchart in Image above to figure out which is best for you! Here are some options/products I love and you can choose from: The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes All in One Lactic Acid Treatment The Ordinary - Mandelic Acid 10% + HA NATURIUM - BHA Liquid Exfoliant 2% The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masque THE inkey LIST - Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) Gentle Exfoliating Toner TULA SKINCARE - Pro-Glycolic 10% Resurfacing Toner Allies of Skin - Mandelic Pigmentation Corrector Night Serum
💖Creator Roundup 🏷 Cherie Made Me Buy It
Check out these creators profiles for their reviews on the cherie finds! @JadesJourney “I mentioned I was ordering a few of The Ordinary products a couple of weeks ago and Yay! they arrived last Friday. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 I purchased three ordinary products because of reviews from fellow creators 🤗 thank you creators, and I’m interested in organic vegan 🌱, cruelty-free products. My haul included…” @HilaryStrano “While I love this app for more than one reason, the biggest reason is how we can learn from one another. I am very open about my struggles with eczema, rosacea, extremely sensitive skin so on one of my posts someone left a comment about adding collagen supplement. So I listened and here's what I found.” @pastelpink_bunny “This mini set is incredible! It contains their five best sellers for all skin types✨” @madihomewood “💔I’m pretty bummed about this eye cream tbh, I was so stoked about the brand (and should mention that I have been liking some of the other products so far) but this one really was a miss for me.”
Mermaid Polish🧜♀️ Same Brand Dupe?
Sally Hansen - Color Therapy Nail Polish Sally Hansen - Insta-Dri X Jelly Belly Nail Polish Similarities: - Both are from Sally Hansen which is famous for their polishes and nail products - Both have two-color tones - Both have blue base Differences - Sally Hansen Salon Manicure has 14.7ml (0.5 oz) comparing to Sally Hansen insta-dry Matte 9.17 ml (0.3 oz) - Salon Manicure is $15 CAD vs Insta-dry Matte $8 CAD (almost double the other) - The Salon Manicure does appear to be more hollow, when actually apply it, you can tell that this one is super jampacked with holo pigment - After two layers, the salon manicure series is perfect set and ready to finish ( actually one layer is good enough, if you do want extra hallow pigment, you can go with a second layer) but the insta-dry matte series, it is not as clear as the other, and you actually need a third layer to get the perfect finish. - The formula is thicker in Salon Manicure, but the consistency is very good and fluid. And it doesnt dragging the brush. It floats super nicely across the nail. - My opinion - I personally really love the Salon Manicure. Although both polish are from Sally Hansen, this one definitely wins over the other in every area. I love the fact that you can see the formula is a two-toned color, you can actually see the color shifting when turning it into different angles. And it appears the same on your nails. It has a perfect combination of blue and purple with purple pearl shimmer to keep the nail going strong.
