Investing in your skincare is always a good idea. Our skin is actually our largest organ and considering that it absorbs up to 70% of what we put on it; why not splurge and spend a little bit more? We investigate luxury skincare brands so you don’t have to. Keep reading to see what we uncovered!
La Mer  
La Mer was created out of necessity when Dr. Max Huber suffered burns after a lab accident. He was compelled to treat and heal his skin. And we give props for his perseverance; 6000 experiments later and 12 years of research led him to what he was looking for. He discovered a fermentation process of sea kelp, that turned into a magical elixir which claims to completely transform the skin. The much-loved ‘Crème de la Mer Moisturizer’ retails at $510 for 100ml pot. Used to combat dryness, redness and wrinkles; it’s powered by a cell-supporting ‘Miracle Broth’ a secret formula created by the Dr. himself.
Augustinus Bader  
At the core; skincare is a science so it’s no wonder that the brains behind Augustinus Bader; Professor Augustinus Bader himself is a physician and professor. Impressively, he is also one of the world's leading scientists in stem cell and biomedical research. His skincare range is compared to that of a healing treatment and he claims to have developed an innovative technology to take your skin to the next level. The Discovery Duo is a day and night formula, one being light and refreshing and the other being rich and super-hydrating which stimulates the skin's natural rejuvenation processes to drastically enhance the appearance of your complexion. Retailing at $305 for 30ml, it is popular amongst the brands selection of skincare. 
Skinesis 
With a 12 week waiting list for her super popular facial treatments; its no wonder British CEO and skin guru Sarah Chapman has created ‘Skinesis’ to satisfy the masses. With a focus on botanical oils and highly complex formulas, a potent yet deliciously fragrant product was born. Her products have aromas of jasmine, rose, neroli and frangipani, yum!  The Overnight Facial Night Elixir is a serum-oil elixir which plumps, smooths and rejuvenates the skin while you sleep. Let the products do the hard work while you catch some z’s! It is priced at $86 in the 15ml. 
Skinceuticals 
Backed by science and approved by dermatologists, Skinceuticals are committed to skin health above everything else. Their philosophy; prevent, protect, correct; is the motto of founder Dr. Pinnell. With over 10 patents in skincare over the last 3 decades; he is serious about your skincare! The best seller of this range is the Vitamin C serum for the skin: C E FERULIC® WITH 15% L-ASCORBIC ACID. Retailing at $166 for 30ml, it is clinically proven to reduce damage from the sun’s UV rays and pollution from living in cities. Used for those who want an anti-aging and skin brightening beauty weapon, it’s first used in the morning to protect you from the elements. 
Most luxurious skincare products carry a pricey sum, but they aren’t your usual run-of-the-mill products. Developed by doctors and scientists alike; the research that goes into formulating these goodies is incomprehensible. What price will you pay for a glowing complexion?

I’ve been asked multiple times by my awesome TikTok community to do a makeup look inspired by the popular video game, Among Us. I wanted to create an avant-garde version of their intro screen and promo posters, where the lil astronauts were all in space. Then I added all the colors mixed into a rectangular block on my face to match how the characters look. Being inspired by something popular doesn’t mean you have to give up on your aesthetic ❤️ If you want to see how I applied everything, check out my tiktok tutorial @cindychendesigns!

Thank you guys!
Thank you guys!
Yesterday I received my leaderboard prize for being in the top 3 and I got to use it tonight!!!! First I just want to say I am just so thankful 🤗 to all of my followers and supporters for cheering me on. I am crazy overwhelmed (in a good way) with all the love ❤️ I have received since being a part of this community. Not to mention I am so close to 6k Followers and I just can believe it!! I have been such a hermit for a while, I was not even an avid social media user. I decided to start doing little things for my self with skincare and makeup, then one day I stumbled across Cherie and things just changed. I went from just cheering and saving posts that interested me, to my first post, to a large following and actual friends. This was all so unexpected and a such a blessing. I found myself again aside from being a mother and wife. I found self love and began a much needed journey of self care. Also thank you Cherie!! This app has given me a lot of joy. The support you guys give is amazing! Just being on the leaderboard was such an honor and now there are gifts! You guys rock! Thank you again! This oils is so lush! HERBIVORE - Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil I just love the packaging, I don’t know if I will throw the box away!❤️ The glass bottle and beautiful green/blue oil are gorgeous. It has a very Earthy scent to it, but it is not over powering and fades quickly. Also a little goes a long way, I only used like 3 drops before my moisturizer. The feel on my skin reminds my of my Sunday Riley night oil, but not as heavy. My skin felt nice and moisturized with a nice glow. Contains hemp-derived Cannabis sativa seed + adaptogenic herbs to soothe, hydrate, and gives a nice glow. This product is high in moisture making it Perfect for the coming dry months. Contains mushrooms and turmeric to defend skin against the environment and reduce wrinkles. At $48 this could possibly replace my Sunday Riley oil....because that stuff is super expensive!!! I love it but my wallet doesn’t! However this Emerald oil it a great replacement honestly and it’s not as heavy an oil. There is not a huge difference in the heaviness but it is noticeable to me. I also like how the scent fades, the Luna oil does not. Really a wonderful prize! Thank you !🙏🥰 ❤️Cherie Creator

Create A Subtle Cat Eye Using Lash Extensions💕
This post is dedicated to those of you who don’t want or can’t use a lash strip! If you have a subtle eyeshadow look, a great way to enhance your natural eyeshape is to use individual lash extensions! It’ll give you that your lash but better look and create a charming “atmosphere” around the eye. You don’t have to be a lash artist to do it. All you need is some classic lash glue and individual lashes from a place like LASHIFY - AMPLIFY GOSSAMER LASHES For this eyelook, I created a Demi lash towards the outer corner. A Demi lash is essentially a lash that is about 1/3rd long of a normal strip lash. Starting for the end of the outer corner I used three individual lashes beginning with a 14mm size at the outermost corner. Next would be a 12mm and a finally a 10mm. You can see the difference it makes in the first photo vs the second. In the second photo, I just have mascara, whereas the first photo I have the 3 individual lashes! Tips: 1. Curl and put on your mascara BEFORE you put on the individual lashes. The mascara will provide a sturdy base for the individual lashes to attach to. 2. Use a tweezer to assist with your application and attach the lash to your lash line. DO NOT put it directly on the waterline because this will cause irritation. You do want to be close to it though! 3. I use the lash glue from house of lashes. It’s comfortable and not clumpy. Place the glue on the individual lash like you would normally would on a strip lash. You only need A LITTLE bit of glue. Placing too much will cause difficulty in sticking and it’ll get all over your lashes. Another glue you could use or try is the DUO - DUO Brush-on Adhesive Enjoy your flirty “natural” lashes 💕😄
