CHOOSING THE RIGHT SHADE OF TINTED MOISTURIZER FOR YOU!
Sep. 26, 2020
During quarantine one thing I have noticed was how bad my foundation was rubbing off due to constantly wearing a mask. I quickly put down my expensive high-end foundation and started wearing Covergirls Skin Milk tinted moisturizer. Not only does this give me just the amount of coverage for zoom calls it also holds up against masks a lot better than full coverage foundations. Tinted moisturizers tend to come in fewer shades but no worries I’ll be dropping pro tips for picking up a shade that's right for you.
I have normal skin and usually fit into golden/medium shade families. I use Covergirls Clean Fresh Skin Milk Foundation. This is technically labeled as a foundation however the coverage is incredibly sheer and it is infused with coconut and aloe which is super moisturizing. The shade that fits me best is the medium/tan.

When shopping for a tinted moisturizer don't be scared to bring in your normal foundation to compare. I am pretty familiar with the shade of foundation that matches best with me and can typically pull one that looks best, but it doesn't hurt to have your OG by your side to compare especially if there are two shades you are stuck in between. It's important to remember that a tinted moisturizer will sheer out quite a bit once applying it so a good idea would be to pick a shade you can layer in case you'd like more coverage. For instance, in the summer my face tends to get a lot darker than my body so I pick a shade slightly deeper so that adding on layers gives me more color and doesn't wash me out!
Picking the perfect shade isn't always going to happen right off the bat so just remember to keep your receipt or box if you're ordering online so that you can exchange it! Once you find that match made in heaven your all set!
Double Your Lash Length With Sky High Mascara!
I bought this mascara after seeing a post about it on Facebook. I love trying out new mascaras but rarely do I find one that I will use regularly like my beloved tarte - Maneater Mascara However this stuff is good. MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Sky High Waterproof Mascara It gave my lashes so much volume & length they literally doubled in size! My lashes are already pretty long to begin with but this made them look amazing. The photo is after applying only one coat so I can only imagine how good they will look after two or three coats! It also didn’t clump up my lashes at all. I applied it really quickly & lazily too because I was in a rush to get ready & I was still amazed! I honestly think this is going to be my new daily mascara. It is waterproof but not the annoying kind that leaves your eyes completely black when you go to take it off. It came off really easily with my POND'S - Facial Moisturizers Dry Skin Cream which is what I’ve always used to remove my eye makeup, since I was a kid! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
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.
