Why You’re Probably Washing Your Face WrongDo these 4 things while cleansing your face for soft & supple skin.
I hate to be that girl, but you’re probably washing your face wrong. I wish I could say that it doesn’t matter how you’re doing it, as long as you’re washing that money-maker, but washing the delicate and beautiful skin on our face is something that matters down to every last detail. But, don’t fret—it’s never too late to get your cleansing step down and your skin right! So, we’ve rounded up some crucial details we think you might be skipping and why you need to start doing them, like now. You Didn’t Wash Your HandsSo, this one seems like an obvious one, but when it’s late at night and you’re just trying to get the routine over and done, it’s definitely something that might slip your mind. Please wash your hands before you wash your face! Our hands carry all kinds of icky bacteria from the day’s work, and our skin is like a sponge that absorbs it all—so just do it. You Didn’t Double CleanseNow if you’re a skincare aficionado like me, this step isn’t news to you. But if you’re taking your first steps into the skincare game, double cleansing is something you definitely need to take on. It’s pretty simple too: start off with an oil cleanser or balm to remove all the oil, dirt, and makeup from your skin. An oil-based cleanser is great because it’s gentle and moisturizing, but most important it cleanses off the harmful stuff while leaving the healthy oils on your skin. Follow up the oil cleanser with your favorite lathering cleanser to finish off the two-part step as a way to get deeper into the pores and clean off dirt that the oil cleanser might have missed.You Didn’t Use the 60-Second RuleWe have Twitter’s fave esthetician @LaBeautyologist to thank for this genius one. As she explains it, when you cleanse your face for 60 seconds, you’re giving the skin-loving ingredients your cleanser is packed with enough time to actually work on your face. It helps soften the skin and dissolve all the blockage and grime you accumulate throughout the day. This rule is also great because it gives you enough time to cleanse every inch of the face, including the crevasses and outer areas we tend to neglect (I’m talking to you, nose edges and hairline!). In short, cleanse for 60 seconds and your skin will thank you.You Didn’t Use Your FingertipsRemember when scrubbing tools were a really big thing? Yeah, glad the beauty world got over that one… Because when it comes to our delicate skin, it’s important to be gentle! That’s why I recommend using our pretty little fingers tips for most of the work. Pump your cleanser on the tips of your finger and use them to gently lather around your face in circular motions

VOLUMIZED, BOUNCY CURLS (90’s SUPERMODEL INSPIRE
I love the look of a blowout but I do not have the right technique to create one. The brush always ends up tangled in my hair and I get so frustrated. I created this look to fake a voluminous blowout (and it doesn’t involve the brush getting caught in your hair). This look was inspired by the 90’s supermodel era. It is part of a 2-post video and I will post the makeup look tomorrow. Products used - drybar - High Tops Self-Grip Rollers $10these rollers I originally bought to enhance an at home blowout but have been using them to create extra volume while curling my hair they come 5 in a pack with 3 large rollers and 3 smaller rollers. - $16 drybar - Hold Me Hair Clips These are optional to use to secure the rollers in place. The rollers on their own can hold there place but I haven’t fished out how to do that yet. These come in a 4 pack. - #Revlon - Curling wand 2 inch[products]#[ThreeStars] I love this curling iron because the large barrel creates big curls. The only thing is this curling wand tends to not hold a curl for long. - amika: - Brooklyn Bombshell Blowout Spray This spray is similar to a hairspray but it it’s volumizing. A lot really goes a long way with this product. If you use too much, the hair can become crunchy. It can be used on wet or dry hair. - drybar - Triple Sec 3-in-1 Finishing Spray Lush Scent Living proof. - Full Dry Volume Blast These two products work very similar to each other. They both create noticeable difference in volume when applied correctly. (The drybar product makes your hair smell so good!) To do: - Sperate the top layer of the hair and section off the back. - Take a layer of the top section and spritz the section with amika: - Brooklyn Bombshell Blowout Spray . Use the curling wand to heat up the hair to hold a curl better. With a large roller, roll up the section and secure with drybar - Hold Me Hair Clips . Using a clip to secure is optional as the rollers can stay in place on their own. - Put as many rollers as you feel necessary to create the added volume. I like to keep these rollers at the top sections of my hair. - With the back section of hair, Spritz each section with amika: - Brooklyn Bombshell Blowout Spray . Use the curling iron to create large curls. When releasing the curl, hold it in place for a bit then release. - Let the rollers sit for about 1+ hours. Take out the rollers. Lift up the hair and spray with drybar - Triple Sec 3-in-1 Finishing Spray Lush Scent and Living proof. - Full Dry Volume Blast to add lots of volume. Until I learn how to do a blowout on my hair I will be sticking to this method. #CherieCreator

🚨NEW RELEASE: Rare Beauty + ND Glam Palette 💞
Hey beautiful! I got my mini Sephora haul this weekend and tested out some new make up releases. I got some products from Selena Gomez’ rare beauty and the new Natasha Denona glam palette! Not going to lie, when Sephora announces Selena Gomez’ new make up line I rolled my eyes. Another celebrity makeup release. I thought it was just another cash grab, but when I found out that some proceeds will go towards mental health, I was intrigued. I am a huge advocate of mental health so I bit the bullet and purchased it along with the glam palette. This is my first Natasha Denona palette actually. I’ve been wanting the gold palette and the biba palette, but didn’t think that the $129 price tag is worth it. I wasn’t too intrigued with the bronze palette so I purchased this as my first one! Starting off with the Rare Beauty products, I am impressed with the foundation and concealer. Both are light weight and easily melted in to my skin and I didn’t spend much time blending. I was impressed with the finish as well. It is natural and a radiant finish. It truly is a “your skin but better” foundation. It looks like skin and doesn’t look like I’m wearing any face makeup. I am impressed with the shade range too. I usually have trouble matching foundations, but the Sephora skin shade match online really knocked it out of the park. The liquid blush is beautiful and really gives that glow from within look. I got the shade “joy”. This really packs a punch so a little goes a long way. I have medium to tan skin tone and this shade is LOUD. I had to spent extra time blending it out otherwise I look like I broke out and had a rash reaction 🥴 I might have to return this and trade it for another shade. If you have lighter skin tone than me BEWARE. Rare Beauty - Soft Pinch Liquid Blush The lip soufflé is a beautiful and comfortable on my lips. I’m not a huge fan of liquid lip products because my lips are on the drier side, but this doesn’t crack and feels so soft. I’m also in love with this shade. I got the “courage” shade. However, I don’t think it’s worth $20 because NYX has a similar product so I wouldn’t repurchase Rare Beauty - Lip Souffle Matte Cream Lipstick Natasha Denona eyeshadows feels luxurious. I didn’t spend much time blending because it pretty much blended itself. I can see why ND eyeshadows are on the pricy side. I also don’t own too many cool toned shades so I’m glad I got this palette. It’s subtle enough for everyday wear so I can see myself picking this up on the daily NATASHA DENONA - Glam Eyeshadow Palette Overall, I think Rare’s foundation and concealer are worth it. They are a little bit cheaper compared to other higher end foundations. However, I’m iffy about the lip and the cheek products. I love ND’s glam palette and can see myself using it often. Francesca 💋
I just wanna chant “I scream for for glow screen!” Haha. I really looooovvee this stuff. To be honest I really didn’t want to love it... it’s so hyped and expensive. I really love my Aveeno matte sunscreen, ugh I just didn’t want to turn my back on her. BUT, I got this little sucker in a sample kit and now I’m hooked 😩 It honestly just matches my skin tone so well that I haven’t even been putting on foundation. I really don’t wear make up everyday because it truly ruins your skin. My friends were like ummm did you break your “no foundation unless it’s a special occasion rule?” I was like no y’all it’s my sunscreen!!! It is a little oily but nothing too major. And a little goes a long way, I’ve been using this little guy everyday since end of July! HOW I USE IT It’s my last step in my skin care routine. 1. I put a dot on each surface of my face. I put extra on my left side because that’s where the sun hits me the most while driving 2. I rub it it VERY LIGHTLY, just to get it to cover the area 3. I use my beauty blender and dab it like I would foundation #Supergoop! - Glowscreen Sunscreen SPF 40[products]#[FourStars] WHAT IS IT?

The Ordinary Peeling Solution, How to ⭐️
This is one of those love it or hate it products. When searching for reviews, you will see all kinds but they are normally 1 ⭐️ or 5 ⭐️. If I would have reviewed this after the first time I used it, I would not have given it 5 ⭐️’s at all. This is a product I believe you should research and truly learn about the ingredients and how to use correctly. I’ll do that for you in this post. The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution Ingredients: Glycolic Acid, Aqua (Water), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Water, Sodium Hydroxide, Daucus Carota Sativa Extract, Propanediol, Cocamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Salicylic Acid, Potassium Citrate, Lactic Acid, Tartaric Acid, Citric Acid, Panthenol, Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Tasmannia Lanceolata Fruit/Leaf Extract, Glycerin, Pentylene Glycol, Xanthan Gum, Polysorbate 20, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Ethylhexylglycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol. Directions: AFTER MAKING SURE YOU PERFORM A PATCH TEST*** Use ideally in the PM, no more frequently than twice per week. Clean face and wait for skin to dry. Do not use on wet skin. Apply evenly across face and neck using your fingertips. Leave on for no more than 10 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water. 🚫Contraindications: Do not use in the same routine as direct acids, EUK 134 0.1%, retinoids, pure or ethylated vitamin C, or peptides. AHA means Alpha Hydroxy Acid. These are a group of plant and animal derived acids used in skincare. There are 7 commonly used types of AHA’s. ￼￼citric acid (from citrus fruits) ￼￼glycolic acid (from sugar cane) ￼￼hydroxycaproic acid (from royal jelly) ￼￼hydroxycaprylic acid (from animals) ￼￼lactic acid (from lactose or other carbohydrates) ￼￼malic acid (from fruits) ￼￼tartaric acid (from grapes) There has been a ton of scientific research and studies on aha’s but the most promising are the glycolic and Lactic acids. These are most commonly used to exfoliate but they are also used for acne, to brighten your complexion, promote collagen, and a bunch of other different uses. BHA’s or Beta Hydroxy Acids, BHAs are organic carboxylic acids that work on skin’s surface and deep inside the pore. One of the most popular skin care ingredients of all times, salicylic acid? That’s a BHA. BHAs are known to fight bacteria and can treat dry skin and even calluses on other areas of your body, Make your skin look firmer, smooth out rough and bumpy textures, both BHA’s and AHA’s share similar benefits. How to use this awesome peel mask CORRECTLY — When you are ready and If you have done a patch test and everything was good, make sure you apply to a clean and bone dry face. IF YOU HAVE USED ANY OTHER EXFOLIATING PRODUCT WITHIN THE PAST FEW DAYS, then wait. Start with 3-5 minutes for the first time and work your way up. Pictured above is my skin after 10 mins. Make sure to moisturize WELL after use. I recommend a hyaluronic acid serum and a very good moisturizer afterwards ❤️
