Glitter and glamour – what more could you want in your beauty routine? The glitter trend started with eyeshadows and eyeliners and moved onto highlighter and blush and now it’s making its way into the lipstick field. And we, for one, couldn’t be happier. Previously you might have reserved glitter makeup for the fancy-dress party or once a year on Halloween – but where is the fun in that? 
Glitter lipstick is the perfect way of adding some extra jazz and fun into your look. And why wouldn’t you want your lips to match your glowy personality?
So, stay tuned to find out about how you can rock glitter lipstick this season!
Add some shine to your red lippie 
Red lipstick is that makeup trend that has always and probably always will be on trend. But why not mix it up a little bit? The next time you fancy sporting a red lippie, why not choose a red glitter lipstick?
Red glitter lipsticks will give you that fun red moment that you are in dire need of. Just like with classic red it works with almost all make up and fashion choices. If anything, it will just make that red look that little bit bolder and better! The proof is in the (glitter) pudding in Instagrammer @jeimy.parra’s stunning pic!

Add some glitter to your favourite coral shade 
There’s a reason coral tones have been a hit ever since hitting the beauty market. Coral shades come in rose and golden shades and are extremely flattering to medium and dark skin tones. 
With a glittery coral shade, you’ll be getting that same coral magic plus some little extra pizzazz from the glitter. It’s a win – win situation as Instagrammer @staygoldencosmetics shows!

Grab yourself a pink glitter lipstick 
As a kid you probably wanted everything to be pink and glittery. It’s time to relive a bit of your childhood by sporting a pink glitter lipstick. 
Pink lipsticks come in countless shades – from peach all the way to berry. By adding some glitter to the mix your pink hue will get some much-needed golden shimmer. This look is subtle enough to wear at any time of day but also sassy enough to make sure you rock that day! Who wouldn’t want to emulate Instagrammer @karinawaclawik’s gorgeous look here?

Get yourself some glitter gloss 
The beauty of glitter glosses is you can pair the glitter with any shade of lipstick in your makeup bag. That means an unlimited range of glitter lipstick shades! Why not go all out with a beautiful blue shade like Instagrammer @dodipi?

Or, if you’re feeling like a dewier look, you can simply wear the gloss. Your lips will be bright and shimmery but not overbearing. So, if you’re not a fan of the bold lip you can still join the glitter parade! Just like Instagrammer @corynn_77 in this hot pic!

Glitter pens to the rescue 
We all love a bargain, and a glitter pen is just that. The pen can be applied on your lashes or your lips! It’s the perfect transportable item, with just a swipe a professional look for the office can transform into a sexy and sassy look for a night on the town!
So, whether you feel like a hint of glitter on your upper eyelids to make your eyes sparkle or a dab of glitter on the centre of your lips you’ll be good to go! Or, like Instagrammer @marenbli, why not rock glitter lids and lips?

Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩 “buh-koo-chee-all” HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum I’ve already become a diehard Herbivore lover. So to receive this beauty was super exciting. When I started my acne journey on Cherie I was (and still am) a Differin Acne Gel stan. This was my choice of retinol and I wanted it strong to treat acne and boost my cellular turnover. Now that my acne is currently under control and it’s getting hot again, I definitely want something smooth and gentle. Bakuchiol is a gentler alternative to the very popular ingredient retinol. So essentially you’ll get overall youthful results for your skin. I haven’t tested this on my acne theory yet, but overall my face has been smooth and irritation free. This serum does not have a smell which I love for products of this caliber. I also love that it’s light and not drying at all. I use this at night and since i have a tolerance to retinol I use it every night. I haven’t been using it long enough to see results (about 12 weeks) but I definitely can’t wait to finish this. Have you tried Bakuchiol?

That’d be great right? Well in taking those steps, I definitely recommend these amazing serums. I was gifted the: Intoxicated Cosmetics: Snake Serum Bee Serum Snail Serum I started using the Snail Serum last night first and wow did I notice a difference. The Snail Serum mainly targets dryness. I used this in place of my usual night time serum and boy did I notice a difference. I N G R E D I E N T S : All Serums contain: ✨Niacinamide Bee Serum: Bee Venom Plant Based Stem Cells Royal Epigen Snake Serum Snake Venom Green & White Tea Extract Peptides Snail Serum Snail Peptide Hyadisine Echinacea Moronga Oil Extract I definitely will try the other serums in my routine as I get used to the Snail Serum but so far my skin is definitely happy. What serum would you like to try?

The natural hair journey is a long, yet rewarding one. Many of us have tried endless haircare products and still struggle to find what really works for our hair. BUT, once you master finding the right products and having a ✨CONSISTENT✨ haircare routine, make sure to thank yourself (because your curls sure will)! Do you have a moisturizing cream that you can’t wait to share? Or are you simply looking to revamp your haircare routine? Maybe your curl journey is just starting, or you've finally found your holy grail? Share your story with us in the 🏷3A-4C haircare!

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?

Staying in the trend of clean beauty, I have found an amazing product to add to my everyday routine. Odacité SKINCARE - Blue Aura Cleansing Water This is a cleansing water that is marketed to use in place of your cleanser fit a “quick” clean. When looking for a good cleansing water, you want one that is hydrating and gets yum our face clean. Keep in mind not all cleansing waters are designed to clean makeup (I highly recommend a cleansing balm and cleanser). About This Brand: ✨Vegan ✨Cruelty Free ✨Certified Organic ✨ NO: Fillers | Parabens | Nanoparticles | Petrochemicals | PEG | Synthetic perfumes | Dyes | Phenoxyethanol. This cleansing water is so hydrating and satisfying to use. It smells very fresh and a little goes a long way. What is very important to me is my dry spot aren’t tight or irritated. I have been using this day and night and have seen amazing results acne skin barrier wise. I included this in my routine after a regular cleanser and before my serums. So essentially, I use this as a “toner”. I do this to clean up anything my cleanse left behind, or the cleanser itself. INGREDIENTS: ✨Tumeric: Amazing for hyperpigmentation and overall skin brightness ✨Holy Basil: I drink the tea and can vouch this is an amazing adaptogen that can overall benefit every aspect of your life. It combats aging and free radical damage. ✨Neem: great anti aging ingredient that helps protects your skin barrier. ✨Aloe Vera Juice: this is great for your skin barrier overall. It hydrated, protects and brightens. I highly recommend this cleansing water and it is on sale for $9 at Boxycharm Pop Up 🥰🥰
