Jul. 17, 2020
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.🍃

Black Owned Intimate Care ✨🌹
I did a review on this brand before but in honor of BHM I def had to bring it up again ! #Saltxo - Yoni Shower Gel[products]#[FiveStars] #Saltxo - Femme Rejuv Oil[products]#[FiveStars] I use this gel everyday! It leaves my Yoni energized and clean. I’ve never experienced any irritation and I’m extremely sensitive in that area. It smells very herbal like and a little goes a long way! ($17.99) The Femme Rejuv Oil is a great staple for irritation. I use this baby after my waxes, Emergency shaves, and after getting busy. I find this to be the best oil I’ve ever used down there. A little goes a long way. ($30) This brand is usually always out of stock! She sells out so fast but I always manage to get one thing. I definitely recommend if you love intimate soaps . Do you have a favorite intimate soap ?
Wednesday Wellness 🙏🏾
This past week has been rather hard and long for me. I ultimately decided to get back on track with my wellness plan. My main wellness goal for 2021, is to indulge in myself more. I definitely am a firm believe in “as within, so without”. I started my day with: #Four Sigmatic - Mushroom Elixir Mix with Chaga[products]#[FiveStars] I have been getting back into adaptogen and herbal medicine. What we put into our bodies is just as important as what goes on the outside. Adaptogens are apart of ancient medicinal traditions traced all over the world. I also drink Tulsi “Holy Basil” Tea. If you need a pick me up or emotional boost I highly recommend! SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil is my treatment of choice I used during the day. Do not be afraid to use salicylic acid during the day. I applied plenty of sunscreen afterwards as well! This is a GODSEND for clearing up acne and acne scarring. It’s by far the best acne treatment I’ve tried and its mostly due to the immediate results I get. This is a dry oil, so it should be used before a heavy moisturizer or sunscreen. THE BODY SHOP - Spa of the World Thai Makrut Lime Firming Oil is a staple in my night time routine. When I want to relax and really unwind I use a body roller with this oil. It smells like a fresh key lime pie and it’s so hydrating. This is great for firming, especially when paired with a body tool. What do you do for wellness?
Just added to skincare routine
I usually use some of the the tatcha dewy skin collection skincare, I just added this to the routine. Literally tatcha is the only thing that keeps my skin care at this moment. The dewy collection is great for dry skin but it is a bit pricey. The $12 face mask thoooo be hitting. Anybody else use this brand or want to use it?
A Journey of Self 🌹
I figured Black History Month was as good as any opportunity to talk about my self finding. Growing up in a small yet old family, I always had questions about my roots and family history. I also struggled with self conscious doubts about my appearance. Why is my nose this big? Why is my hair this curly? Why am I taller than average? These weighed heavy on my mind growing up because honestly, sticking out sucked. So, I finally dove deep into my family’s origin and decided to do an Ancestry DNA analysis. I immersed myself with every corner of the site. I only got the chance to finish my maternal grandmas side of the family tree, but even that has plenty of gaps. Yet, when I received my DNA results I was stoked. Then I realized, I don’t know much about any of these places. So I dug even deeper. I have a little journal of things I’ve learned and want to know, but this was quite the experience. It was heartbreaking and satisfying at the same time. I highly recommend for every race and background to do this DNA Test. The best part of this was scrolling through photos of the people of the respected countries I was DNA matched to. I swear I saw a girl who looked like me, but everyone else thinks I’m tripping lol. In the end, I’m satisfied with my results and findings. Relatively speaking, this way of self discovery has been the most effective.
Drunk Elephant- The Littles 🐘
I won this cute little kit in a raffle & I couldn’t be more thankful! I have always wanted to try these products but never wanted to spend the money on all of them incase I didn’t like them! Inside this kit are the following products: DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 That’s literally a whole skincare routine! So far I started out my day with one of Drunk Elephants infamous “Face Smoothies” I washed my face with Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser & then combined C-Firma Day Serum, Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil, & Protini Polypeptide Cream together on my mixing trey with a disposable skincare spatula! I applied it all over my face & neck. Once that absorbed, I applied Umbra Tinte Daily Defense SPF 30 over my face & neck & was done! I love how the kit comes with steps to walk you through different routines you can use in the morning or at night! I will do a follow up review after I have used all the products for a few weeks! But so far, my skin feels & looks great! I have been breaking out lately & haven’t felt the best about my skin so I really needed this pick me up!! Thank you for reading! You guys are the best!! ❤️ @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
