Up close and personal! Love this low exposure image I took of my latest look
BEETLEJUICE inspired makeup!
BEETLEJUICE BEETLEJUICE BEETLEJUICE! Summon inspiration from a classic spooky movie! Grab out your most colorful palette with greens and purples! I used the perfect Morphe palette that is full of greens and purples! MORPHE - 35M Boss Mood Artistry Palette 𝙎𝙩𝙚𝙥 𝙤𝙣𝙚 Let’s start with a bright lime green in our crease. Take a fluffy blending brush and apply the green in your crease with winshield wiper motions back and forth. Just worry about the blend on top, we will be covering the lid portion with another color. 𝙎𝙩𝙚𝙥 𝙩𝙬𝙤 Concealer, micellar water, primer.. use what you’re comfy with to create a cut crease! Sketch out your shape and let’s start to fill it in. Find two different purples to give our look some depth. Darker purple on the outer corner of your eye and a brighter more magenta type purple on the inner corner. Blend the colors together and keep it as neat as possible to give a crisp cut crease. 𝙎𝙩𝙚𝙥 𝙩𝙝𝙧𝙚𝙚 Tie it all in together! Add the same green you used earlier to your bottom lash line and bring it up towards your top lid to bring it all together for the look. I suggest using a pencil brush and blending it out with a small blending brush. 𝙎𝙩𝙚𝙥 𝙛𝙤𝙪𝙧 Complete the look. Add some flashy lashes or eyeliner to your eye look. Be bold and add a black lipstick! I used UNINVITED FENTY BEAUTY - Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color I’m not a pro at cut creases, but this was pretty simple and easy for me.

Stays while you play
I’ve been using the Maybelline Matte Ink lip color for a year and I love it. This product was made for women who do it all and want to look fabulous while doing it. The applicator has a pointed tip so you can easily outline your lips first before filling them in, which is a win considering this stuff will stay wherever you put it...like it or not. I apply the product to DRY lips, then blot until the product is no longer transferring to the tissue. I let it fully dry a few minutes before eating, drinking, or kissing 😘 MAYBELLINE - SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick #over40 #40isfab #Idowhatiwant

MY 2020 TOP 5 ✨
I love this prompt from @cherieand was excited to start thinking about some of my favourites from 2020. It was a nice chance to really reflect on the past year, and celebrate my personal self care journey. So here are my favourites! Product - After lots of consideration I decided to choose one of my favourite products for each category of: face, lips and hair! So many great products this year it’s so hard to choose, but I would say for face: BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream was my all time favourite discovery, so effective for my specific concerns (sun damage/milia)! The SUMMER FRIDAYS - Lip Butter Balm was my favourite lip product - I was addicted to the smell + really kept my lips hydrated. Plus for the price, you know I wasn’t gunna misplace this bad boy. And lastly, I would almost consider it a full on addiction how much I loved the OLAPLEX - No. 7 Bonding Oil , seriously this stuff changed my life! Trend - Sustainable packaging, and gorgeous reusable jars were one of my favourite trends. I love this shift towards mindfulness, especially because I often feel like it’s a domino effect where it can start with mindfulness to the environment, than mindfulness of people and surroundings and I believe this is a very important/healthy shift for consumers. My best look - Dark lips, always. Favourite Creators - I couldn’t possibly choose just one, there are so many creators here that are amazing, unique, lovely, smart, creative and genuine - I’m so grateful for this platform! But a few accounts I think you should definitely check out - @heynoonoofor some of the most beautiful makeup looks I’ve ever seen, just absolute works of art! @D.Bennettthis gorgeous human has an amazing page. All encompassing, wonderfully informative and super relatable. @annkrishaAnn’s page is awesome, from Halloween looks to gift guides ... she’s ON it. Not to mention her results posts are super helpful and informative. @Mallory- I love her content, her posts are very relatable and she is just genuinely such a good person! Something I learned - SPF if so important! APPLY - than REAPPLY even in the winter. I really like THANK YOU FARMER - Sun Project Water Sun Cream Hope you enjoyed my top 5 ✨💛

Perfect long lasting Nudes!!
ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick are perfect long lasting liquid lipsticks! they glide on so silky smooth and stay on for hours! They wont dry your lips out like most other liquid lip polishes. At the end of my day I use some Vaseline to wipe off the remainder that dries to almost a natural stain, which I like! The true nude lip polish is in the shade color: Sand and the other lip polish is in the shade color: Peachy. I love nude color lip shades especially ones that last and don't dry out your lips. Another reason I love These 2 specific colors is because they go nicely with many different skin tones. I bought a few as gifts over the holidays.
Winter makeup look
Hi guys! Today I’m showing my makeup look for winter, I used my fav pallet of PÜR - Pur x Boxycharm Eyeshadow Palette and I did a review of this one before and my fav nude lipstick ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick I also didn’t a review of this one before! My foundation is very light The Ordinary - Colour. Serum Foundation and works very well if you like a lot of blush like I do lol The eyelashes that I used is a very cheap one but I usually cut them in the middle and I apply just in the very end of my eyes, that’s my trick :) I’m gonna make a video tutorial soon Xoxo

GLAMNETIC - Black Liquid Magnetic Liner another new to me brand. includes magnetic liner and a pair of their “bella” lashes. however, i don’t wear lashes or eyeliner, so i’ll be gifting this! retails for $63. tarte - Maneater Mascara does anyone know if this comes in a waterproof formula?! i have only tried this once but i’m OBSESSED. i’m not one to fawn over mascara, because they all seem pretty similar, but THIS one 👏🏻 retails for $23.

BoxyCharm: December Base Box ✨💖
Hey Cherie Fam! 🍒 I finally received my December base box from Boxycharm today. Yes, it’s the 29th. I am cutting them some slack though because I know that it was the holidays and they were probably pretty backed up. For those who don’t know, Boxycharm is a beauty subscription service and you get 5 full sized products for $25/month. You have the option to upgrade to premium which you receive 6-7 items. The premium box is $35/month. I canceled my base box months ago and only subscribed to premium. However, my premium boxes lately have been pretty disappointing. I found the items in the base box more appealing the last few months so I decided to cancel and re-subscribe to base. They were having a deal that if you resubscribe, you get a complimentary Breakfast in Bed palette by Beauty Bakerie or the Ciate London Editor palette. I went with Beauty Bakerie because I love the brand. I was pretty impressed with my box this month. This is the first time that I’m excited about ALL the products I received. I’m happy that I got all makeup items because I’m very picky with skin care. In this box, I received 6 full sized items including the complimentary Beauty Bakerie palette. • Breakfast in Bed Palette by Beauty Bakery - $38.00 • Huda Beauty Amethyst Obsessions Palette - $27.00 •Glamnetic Baby Girl Lashes and Black Magnetic Liner - $63.00 • Tarte Maneater Mascara - $23.00 • MAC Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in shade Chili - $19.00 • Get lit Metallic Liquid Eyeshadow by Eloise Beauty in the shade Pure Gold - $26.00 •TOTAL VALUE: $196.00 I am most excited about the magnetic lashes because I have never tried them before and I love falsies! I am also excited about the Huda palette. Are you subscribed to any monthly beauty subscription boxes? If so which service is your favorite? Xoxo, Francesca 💋

Reflecting on 2020
2020 is coming to a close. I think we are all very hopeful for a better 2021. 2020 has been challenging year. But, as hard as it has been for me having a newborn & a toddler at home during two lockdowns now (Ontario is officially locked down today again), it has also given me LOTS of time with my kids, a HUGE appreciation for stay at home moms, and appreciating all the things I took for granted like seeing friends & family at Christmas. Here’s my @cherie2020 Top 5 1. Product My favourite has been SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment I received it in a sample bag from Sephora and was blown away by the results. It’s a 7 % lactic acid treatment in a milky serum consistency. It also contains licorice root extract. You really can notice it smooth & brighten your skin in 3 minutes! I haven’t bought the full size yet. It retails for $112 CAD for 1oz. But when my sample runs out I think this one is worth the money! (The sample is .25oz and I’ve been using it once a week for about 6 weeks and I might have one use left) 2. Trend Does Vitamin C count as a trend? I only started my skincare journey 6 months ago. I didn’t really know anything about skincare ingredients. Now I’ve bought two Vitamin C serums, an eye cream, and face wash! Vitamin C is powerful antioxidant that helps give you brighter, tighter, and overall more radiant looking skin. I definitely have noticed a difference since starting use to Vitamin C serums! VERSED - STROKE OF BRILLIANCE Brightening Serum SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum(haven’t started using) OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Eye Crème OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Juice Daily Cleanser 3. Best Look My best book would have to be my everyday 5 minute natural make-up look (see earlier post). Before I started my skincare journey in the summer, I was maybe washing my face in the shower and putting on lotion. Definitely no make-up. I looked tired and dull. Now I take care of my skin, so even without make-up I look brighter and I also take 5 minutes to put on a little make-up, even if it is just to walk the kids to the park and it makes me feel a lot better about my appearance. CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge Sheertint Hydrator Broad Spectrum SPF 25 SEPHORA COLLECTION - Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer Milk MAKEUP - Lip + Cheek CLINIQUE - High Impact Lash Elevating Mascara CLINIQUE - Just Browsing Brush-on Styling Mousse 4. Favourite Creator on Cherie I might be biased because I won a great giveaway from her, but I really love following @JadesJourney I really enjoy her intersection between skincare and wellness. Check her out! 5. Something I learned The biggest thing I learned this year is not only can I find the time everyday to take care of my skin but that I look forward to it! Happy New Year!

Australian skincare🇦🇺 💦 feat. Bellabox November
Thank you to all the people that have followed me, i appreciate everyone's love for skincare ❤ I am going to start posting a lot about Australian skincare🇦🇺, including most accessible, since in Australia I struggle to find a lot of things that are available in the US or Europe. I'll start with today, as I recieved my second Bellabox, a monthly subscription I recieved for a few months about 5 years ago and recently resubscribed because of the October box's inclusion of FENTY BEAUTY - Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick When you subscribe, Bellabox asks you for more information about yourself and your preferences, for example hair colour, skin type, beauty goals and what you would prefer to sample out of skincare, makeup and haircare. I of course, chose skincare as my preference. I was very excited to receive the #SKIN PHYSICS - Dragon's Blood Facial Sculpting Gel[products]#[FiveStars] as it is very well reviewed, ingredients look great, and it RRP's for $59.99, which triples the cost of my monthly subscription. If you would be interested in a review of this product in the coming months, please let me know 😁 (What I like about having subscribed again to Bellabox is that it curbs my "addiction" to buying and trying new products in a cost effective way, as well as being mindful about waste if a product isn't for you, as most of the items come as sample size. For my overseas readers, Australia doesn't do testers very much, especially of skincare unless you are at a luxury store. Not that anywhere in today's current COVID-19 climate do anyway. If you are someone who enjoys sampling products that you might not have heard of or never wanted to take the plunge on, this subscription could be the thing for you! Thank you for reading ❤ #SKIN PHYSICS - Dragon's Blood Facial Sculpting Gel[products]#[FiveStars] buy in Australia at Priceline https://www.priceline.com.au/skin-physics-dragon-s-blood-facial-scupting-gel-50-ml

Armani beauty Lip Maestro in 206 Cedar - Brown
ARMANI beauty - Lip Maestro Liquid Matte Lipstick I got this as a little extra “Thank You” in my December 2029 Allure Beauty Box. I put my AirPod case next to this for size reference. This shade is described as a brown but this is really more like a brick red. It doesn’t quite dry down matte and the box actually didn’t say whether it was the Lip Maestro Stain or the Matte Lip, but I’m pretty sure it’s the Matte Lip because of the almost silicone-y feel it has. It reminds me of the texture of the Rare Beauty Matte Lipstick. I can’t really say how long it lasts because I don’t wear lipstick like this with a mask (I can’t wait to be able to actually use lip products again 😭), but I don’t think it’s a stay all day kind of lip product. This is a really nice product and I’m glad I got to try it out!
Lip Gloss as Blush 😍
All of us want to know the useful make-up tricks to illuminate our face in an instant with minimal effort. Here’s a trick - after your regular application of lipstick, lip gloss, or both, simply dab the excess product onto the cheeks and blend! One of my favorite lip gloss is the best-selling Armani Beauty Lip Maestro liquid lipstick in shade 400. ARMANI beauty - Lip Maestro Liquid Matte Lipstick The non-drying liquid lipstick is heavily pigmented and infuses my lips with an intense deep red color while providing a velvet matte finish with lasting hydration and comfort. After using a clean finger to go around my lips after application, I usually dab the excess color on my finger lightly and in tapping motions on my cheeks for a fresh face glow. This turns the lip color as a cream or liquid blush! Less is more, especially with rich lip pigments. Go with a little at any one time. Using a deep red color may seem daunting at first, try a pink or peachy coloured lip gloss for a more natural effect.ARMANI beauty - Lip Maestro Liquid Matte Lipstick

Very Victoria Dupe!
Dupe Alert! ✨ I figured since I talked extensively about the Charlotte Tilbury - Matte Revolution Lipstick in Very Victoria being my fav lipstick for the past 2 years, I might as well give you a dupe right?! It’s my perfect darker nude. The new Juvia's PLACE - The Nude Velvety Matte Lipstick lipsticks are amazing and this is the shade 2020. Not surprisingly a lipstick that also made it in to my favs for the year. We all have a type right?! I had no idea how similar they were until I swatched them. They don’t look exact because Very Victoria is a more buildable formula and 2020 is more creamy and pigmented off the bat. Charlotte Tilbury comes in at $34, Juvia’s Place is $14 (and you can use Ulta coupons!). A great way to try this type of shade without breaking the bank! ✨
Glowing Natural-glam Fall Makeup
Natural glam is some of my favorite makeup to rock, and fall makes it even better with all of the delicious warm tones and golds. I always love to play up my eyes and highlight to get a lit from within glow that complements the warm neutrals I use for my shadows and lips. Using the inspiration of golden hour and the changing colors of the leaves never fails 🍁 For my eyes, I used a mixture of NATASHA DENONA - Mini Nude Eyeshadow Palette and my HUDA BEAUTY - The New Nude Eyeshadow Palette to get the perfect mix of warm tones and golds. I start by blending the camel color from natasha in my crease, and deepen it with the next darkest brown in the palette (a chocolate) on my outer V. I take my finger and press crave from huda onto the center of my lid, layering my highlight on the inner corner and smoking my lower lash line out with the same chocolate colour. The duo-chrome shadows in the huda palette is extra fun, and adds extra dimension to the look; I love the shift of crave and daydream. I add a dot of highlight to the center of my lower lash line as well. I dont line in this look, but use a few coats of a dark black mascara like CHANEL - Le Volume de Mascara which doesn’t smudge or flake, and applies easily with little clumping for long and voluminous lashes. I darken my brows to give a more structured look to my eyes. I’ve been loving the Rare Beauty - Brow Harmony Pencil and Gel which makes my brows look naturally tinted and sculpted for a more elegant look. I didnt contour in this look, but layered on benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzing Powder liberally with a darker bronzer powder still in a warmer shade CHANEL - LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW Sheer Powder I don’t contour because for this look i’m sticking with only warm tones, and my contour shade is cool. I mix in my blush, EM COSMETICS - Heaven’s Glow: Magic Hour Blush which truly transfers the colour of magic onto the face, and top it with my Charlotte Tilbury - Beauty Highlighter Wand that melts into the skin and gives a heavenly glow. For my lips, I used a mix of Charlotte Tilbury - Matte Revolution Lipstick and EM COSMETICS - EM Cosmetics Lip Cushion for perfect warm nude pink tones. What’s your go-to look? Would you try this out? Let me know what you think down below! 💕
PAT MCGRATH LUST: LIP GLOSS
PAT McGRATH LABS - LUST Lip Gloss in Aphrodisiac Look at the shiiiiine! This is the shiny gloss of my dreams ✨ I loove this shade because it’s the perfect baby pink that tints the lips for a soft-pink look. I love how easy it is to whip this on while I’m on-the-go for a beautiful shine. There’s a slight vanilla scent to this that isn’t super strong so I don’t mind it. As you can see from the swatch, it has a lot of shine and quite a bit of pigment. This is the only shade I have but I can imagine that most of her creme shades are just as pigmented!
PAT McGRATH LABS-LUST Lip Gloss
Pat McGrath Lust Lip Gloss Swatch
This is a nice lip gloss. It’s the largest in my collection, which almost makes up for the steep price. It smells wonderful – that typical vanilla/cupcake type smell that so many lip products have. This shade, Love Potion, is a gorgeous shimmering pinky nude. The applicator on this is unlike any other glosses I own – it’s a curved doe foot. I do really like this gloss, but it’s very expensive and there are others on the market (and in my collection) that do the same thing for a lower price.PAT McGRATH LABS - LUST Lip Gloss
PAT McGRATH LABS-LUST Lip Gloss
always need to use a gloss💛 my favorite by far is the Maybelline Lifter Gloss! It has hyaluronic acid in it which is a big plus and it smells amazing🤗 The nyx butter glosses are a classic and smell so good too I have shades Creme Brulee and Tiramsu but def need to add more to the collection The Elf Lip Laquer is super affordable and leaves a great shine and isn’t sticky at all The Too Faced Lip Injection definitely plumps the lips😙 but it doesn’t last all day 😕 The Kylie Lipstick was not for me and looked very cakey on my lips🤭 and was also very expensive The Estée Lauder glosses also work great for a natural look😊
My favorite Lip Color and Lip Gloss Duo for $12
NYX's butter glosses are already a sensation, but I paired one with their Filler Instinct Lip Color for an even better look! The lip color (shade Sugar Cookie) puts on a nice nude brown and the gloss (shade Praline) adds extra color, shine, and smoothness!
Just a little makeup obsession doesn’t hurt!
