Play with colours and glitters during quarantine time. Slay at home, have fun, and feel glam! I used the @pixibeauty Glitter-Y Eye Quad in this look; didn't put anything underneath which I think will make difference. 🤩 I also use the Liplift Max on my lips and let me tell you its a new fave! 👄
I am someone who lovesssss a good highlighter that’s glittery and intense. However, on most days when I don’t wanna wear a lot of makeup or I just want a subtle glow, I choose these three highlighters to give me a natural glow. ✨ #e.l.f - Workout Ready Lip & Cheek Palette[products]#[FiveStars] This palette is meant to be use on the go for a minimal makeup look or for touch-ups. It comes with four shades, the white shade is a highlight and the rest are meant for the lips and cheeks. I love the entire palette, but my absolute favorite is the highlight because it gives you the most beaming highlight while stil looking natural! It looks very white in the pan but on the skin it looks flawless and you can’t see any whiteness only shine, so I recommend this for all skin tones! #COLOURPOP - Pressed powder highlighter[products]#[FiveStars] (Shade: Here Kitty Kitty) There aren’t enough words to describe how much I love this highlight, I use it so much. This shade specifically gives you a beautiful glowy look that isn’t chunky or too glittery. I love wearing this when I want to wear a full face of makeup, but I want to keep it simple. Here Kitty Kitty and this formula gives you a sheen type of finish that is still very luminous and will look amazing when you take selfies in the sun. It’s hands down one of my favorite powder highlighters. #the Balm cosmetics - Mary-Dew Manizer [products]#[FiveStars] I got this in a ipsy bag and I’ve been obsessed with it since, I’m going to need to purchase the regular size soon! This is a liquid highlighter that will give you a seamless glow but can still blind people when they see you. It literally makes your cheek look wet but in a beautiful way. It’s also such a pretty color. I like to apply this with my fingers for a more minimal look or I use a sponge when I really want people to see the glow. ✨ I feel like it’s difficult to find a highlighter that looks ‘natural’ because it is shimmery/glittery. However, these three highlighters, I’m so glad I found them because I’m someone who loves a no makeup-makeup look!
Elf eyeshadows have always been hit or miss for me, but I’ve struck gold with the #e.l.f. - Bite Size Eyeshadow Palette Hot Jalapeño[products]#[FourStars] . I’m actually super impressed with how these shadows performed. Blendable, pigmented and the shimmers are actually impactful. I’ll definitely be picking up more, especially at the price point of $3.🔥🔥🔥 And yes, I did a full face of makeup to just lounge around the house.
I use this palette in almost every single makeup look I do. Its perfect for crazy color looks because of how pigmented thecolors are, but it's also perfect for natural looks because of the wide selection of brown/orange shades. I will always recommend this palette to everyone because it truly has everything you need. The price is so so worth it. #MORPHE - The James Charles Palette[
Oh HEY my to go look takes me about 6 minutes and as you can tell, I am very proud #DERMABLEND - Flawless Creator Multi-Use Liquid Foundation Drops This wouldn’t be my post if I didn’t mention this product ( HOLY GRAIL) #DERMABLEND - Illuminating Banana Powder Amazing at letting my makeup sit, wouldn’t recommend for my oily friends though! #ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Brow Pomade I know this product has been retired by the makeup community however after using this product for 4+ years, I consider myself a master now. I love that a little goes a long way (I’m only on pomade #2) #Vasanti - Bloom blush This was a random purchase I made last year yet I absolutely love to use this daily. I only put enough for me to see 😂 #NYX - Soft Matte Lip Cream I’ve purchased over 20 of these in the last 3 years because 1. I’m always losing them, 2. It’s the perfect shade for me 🥺
love when a makeup looks beautiful on the first try.🍃 I was scared to try a blue green as I thought it would not look good on me but I was surprised, I loved how the eye looks beautiful with these colors.🍃

5 REASONS WHY YOU NEED TOPCOAT
A good top coat is more than just clear nail polish! Tell me this—do you find your manicure always chips faster than you want it to? (I know, this makes gel manicures really tempting, but hear me out). 1) It makes your manicure last longer Nail polish top coat adds a glossy seal over the polish you’ve just put on, ensuring it doesn’t chip away as easily. 2) It helps your nails dry faster I don’t even consider a top coat these days if quick dry isn’t mentioned anywhere on the label.To put it simply, quick dry top coats work by literally solidifying faster, making bumps and nicks harder to make in the nail polish itself. 3) It can make your manicure look like gel Top coats add a more glossy finish and high shine to perfect nails, giving them the illusion of a thicker layer of polish that looks like gel. 4) It smooths any over application mistakes If you accidentally nick or smudge your nails, here’s no reason to stress—your perfect nails aren’t ruined! This is where the top coat comes in. It’ll smooth over and fill any tiny little nicks and bumps just enough so that they’re not noticeable, saving you from doing over your nails. 5) It makes your at-home nail art look pro It adds that finishing touch and makes everything look 100% better. Which top coat is best? A lot of people think that their nail polish chips because they’re using a cheap brand. The thing is, it doesn’t matter what brand of nail polish you use—if you’re using a good quality top coat and base coat, you can make ANY nail polish last (and look good!) for perfect nails. Here are my favourite top coats! Seche Vite Top Coat Seche - Vite Dry Fast Clear Top Coat Seche Vite Dry Fast top coat is a classic. There’s a good reason it comes so highly recommended—I don’t think I’ve ever had my nails look so much like gel before. However, it thickens very quickly and requires the Seche Restore brand thinner to use it again due to Seche Vite’s unique formula. Essie Good to Go essie - Good to Go Top Coat It dries quickly and super shiny, but doesn’t make nails look as gel-like as other top coats. However, it’s one that I relied on for a long time and I would happily recommend it. Essie Gel Setter Reviewessie - Gel Setter Top Coat It’s definitely similar to Good to Go, but to me has a little more plumping and a gel-like finish for nails. Sally Hansen Big Shiny Top Coat Sally Hansen - Big Shiny Top Coat I really, really liked the Sally Hansen Big Shiny Top Coat. It was Big, Shiny, and quick-drying—and easy to get and cheap. What’s not to love? ￼So, what's the fastest way to dry nails again? Answer: with a top coat—so skip all those Pinterest hacks about putting your hands in iced water. Apply thin coats of nail polish, let it dry a little in between, and seal everything off with a good top coat (and your nails will probably look better and last longer than gel, too!) Here's to good manis and pedis ahead!
SHINE BRIGHT LIKE A DIAMOND - MY HIGHLIGHT FAVS
The “Glass Skin” look has become popular lately, but I’ve always been a fan of blinding people with my highlight. Here are a list of my favorite highlighters. All of them are super pigmented so a little goes a long way! ✨COLOURPOP - Super Shock Shadow in Birthday Boy - this is an eyeshadow that I like to add to my highlight. It is an iridescent shadow with tiny pieces of glitter. This is buildable to create a high shine look, you can add it to another highlight to add glitter, and I also like to use it when I’m going for a subtle glow. ✨Colourpop Super Shock Cheek in Do Not Disturb - I think Colourpop discontinued this highlighter. It is a rich gold highlighter. I like to use this when I am wearing warmer tones in my eyeshadow like reds and oranges because it has a warm undertone. ✨Primark Havana Palette - I got this palette from Primark forever ago and it is my go to highlighter. I am wearing it in the photo of me in this post. It gives a high shine glow. I like to mix the highlighter and bronzer shades together. The palette also has a pink blush and a contour. It has cool undertones. You can only purchase Primark products in store and there are very limited stores in North America but NYX strobe genius has similar shades, they are pretty much dupes. Everything in Primark is super inexpensive. This palette was $7 ✨NYX - Strobe of Genius - i love this palette . It has so many different hues. All of the shades have a cool undertone and are super pigmented. It includes pink, gold, and purple shades. I love to mix and match these highlighters. sometimes I even use them as eyeshadow. This palette is $20 at Ulta. ✨DECK OF SCARLET - Illuminating Glow Drops in Copper - These super potent illuminating drops work great on its own as a highlighter but can also be mixed with your foundation for a dewy glow. If you’re going to use it on its own you need less than one drop this little tube will last you forever! I wouldn’t recommend this to people with oily skin it. It is a thick liquid highlight and could make your skin look a bit greasy. This would work better for people with normal to dry skin. #CheriePartner
(New product) Dr Dennis Gross melt away cleanser
@drdennisgross recently launched their Hyaluronic melt away cleanser, anything that has got to do with cleansing makeup off has got my attention ! Let’s start with the texture , it is supremely soft , gentle and feels likewise on the skin too. Performance: I used it to cleanse my makeup off and it was not harsh, beautifully cleansed off the tough eye areas along with the rest of the face, felt soft and hydrated afterwards. The good part is you don’t need to rinse it off , the micro fiber face cloth takes care of it ! Contains Hyaluronic acid that keeps the skin hydrated and soft. I deal with dryness from most cleansers but this one has a different hydrating story. 😃 Packaging : Comes in a tube that dispenses the formula nicely. *pr sample!

Pre-Gym Morning Skincare: Anti-Redness Routine!
Before I go to the gym, I try to keep it as simple as possible! But some mornings, I need to deviate from the moisturizer+sunscreen formula to add in some extra soothing ingredients for my sensitive combination skin. My skin is acne prone, so I layer lightweight serums to get the job done: • NIOD - Modulating Glucosides utilizes a variety of nerd-worthy ingredients, that would take an entire post to list off and describe, to soothe skin from the inside-out, minimizing redness that stems from irritation. It has a uniquely plopping texture that manages to be entirely a serum yet have a creamy consistency. A good moisture boost without causing shininess. • PAULA'S CHOICE - CBD Skin Transformative Treatment Milk is a delightfully milky, lightweight serum that soaks in quickly for a dose of moisturizing oils, hydrating humectants, and soothing CBD and centella asiatica extract amongst a variety of antioxidants. Always fantastic to apply the morning after tret! • PAULA'S CHOICE - YOUTH-EXTENDING DAILY HYDRATING FLUID SPF 50 is my hands-down favourite sunscreen. It doesn’t last through sweating, so I‘d only use it pre-workout if you workout inside and plan on reapplying sunscreen after! It is extremely lightweight, closer to a watery serum than a traditional liquid sunscreen! It soaks in quickly, offering intense hydration and soothing power thanks to a bunch of antioxidants, including two green tea extracts and vitamin e.
