Black Owned Makeup Look
So I decided to use the products I pictured in my first photo (minus my highlight shade and lipstick) I used the #Ace Beaute - Nostalgia Palette[products]#[FiveStars] for my entire eye look. I definitely enjoyed these products. My only advice is to shake the UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation before use (because it can come out watery) but the coverage is absolutely flawless. I was shocked with the consistency the coverage I got. What’s your favorite black owned brands? (I do not own right to the song)

10/10 DANG I LOOK GOOD. Best complexion products
Okay, I know the title drew you in... WELL I’m here to say that it’s absolutely true. This is the best foundation I’ve ever used and I’ve tried A LOT! (I used to work at Sephora, so you can imagine how many I’ve actually tried.) ANYWAY! Skipping to the review. Let me introduce you to Uoma Beauty. Uoma Beauty is a brand making moves that I wish all brands would! Their shade line for complexion products is based on undertone and skin type AND it has a huge shade range. Anyone can find their match and it’s really easy. They have a quiz and you can match another brands shade to one of theirs. Out of the 6 shade groups, I am Honey Honey the olive undertone. I am always looking for a perfect olive undertone foundation, but always seem to fail. Foundations are too orange/yellow or neutral olive and turn grey on me. Uoma Beauty Honey Honey T1 is the spot on perfect warm olive match for me. Each shade group is made with different ingredients to cater to the undertone/skin types reaction to the sun. So mine helps with premature aging, repairing the skin, sebum production, inflammation, and protection from free radicals. Find your foundation match and there is a concealer and contour highlight stick to go with it as well. UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation Requires some shaking before use, but expect amazing coverage and finish. + buildable coverage. Light to FULL coverage. + soft matte/natural finish. Not heavy, looks super natural and like skin. + LONG LASTING. I wore this for 12hrs without primer and it stayed put. + has a light scent, but it’s really nice and dissipates. + no oxidation! Doesn’t turn colors. UOMA BEAUTY - Stay Woke Luminous Brightening Concealer This concealer *bleeps* on all my other concealers. + she’s thickk, but creamy and comfy. + little goes a long way. + medium to full coverage. + hydrating! Not heavy. + very long lasting. + not slippery. Stays put. - creases, but what concealer doesn’t? UOMA BEAUTY - Double Take Contour Stick I think we all have problems finding the correct shade to contour. At first I thought this shade was way too dark, but it’s PERFECT. The highlight shade is also perfect for my skin tone. + creamy/ buttery soft texture. + so easy to blend. + very pigmented. Little goes a long way. + highlight is more glossy than shimmery. The whole brand is a hit and my complexion has never looked so good!

Find your perfect shade with these tips!
Finally find your perfect shade match by following these tips! Is your foundation the perfect match? Maybe the color is off a little or maybe you even have to mix shades. After working as a color artist at sephora, I’ve got foundation matching down to a T! Keep reading for my tips. 𝐔𝐍𝐃𝐄𝐑𝐓𝐎𝐍𝐄𝐒 What is your undertone? Are you cool toned, warm toned, or a mix of both aka neutral toned? Do you look more yellow or pink? 𝙃𝙤𝙬 𝙩𝙤 𝙛𝙞𝙣𝙙 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙪𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙧𝙩𝙤𝙣𝙚: Take a look at your veins on your wrist or where you can see them show through. If they appear 𝘽𝙇𝙐𝙀 then you are a cool tone. If they appear 𝙂𝙍𝙀𝙀𝙉 then you are a warm tone. A mix of 𝘽𝙊𝙏𝙃 green & blue is a neutral tone. NOW take a look in the mirror and lets identify what type of warm, cool, or neutral tone you are. In the mirror look at your neck and collarbone/chest area. What color do you see? Cool tones look for: PINK, RED, PEACH, BLUE & VIOLET. (violet for our deep skin babes) Warm tones: YELLOW, ORANGE, GOLDEN, OLIVE (olive can be warm or neutral) Neutral tones tend to be right in-between. You may see some yellow, but also some pink or other cool tone..etc. I am medium to tan warm olive! I often have a hard time finding my shade due to the lack of warm olive undertones in foundations. 𝙁𝙊𝙐𝙉𝘿𝘼𝙏𝙄𝙊𝙉 Most of us know that there is not always an inclusive shade range in a lot of foundations, but it is improving with brands like Fenty, Rare, Uoma, and many others. When picking a foundation read what type of undertone it is (check my photos above for examples) Since you’ve figured out or have an idea of your undertone, follow these steps to make sure your foundation matches as precise as possible. ① Swatch on your neck and bring it down towards your chest. ② let the swatch set a few minutes to make sure it doesn’t turn colors on you or oxidize. ③ does it match pretty well? Apply it to your face and see how it does for the rest of the day! 𝙁𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙙𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙡𝙞𝙣𝙚𝙨 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙖 𝙬𝙞𝙙𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙞𝙣𝙘𝙡𝙪𝙨𝙞𝙫𝙚 𝙧𝙖𝙣𝙜𝙚 𝙤𝙛 𝙨𝙝𝙖𝙙𝙚𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙪𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙧𝙩𝙤𝙣𝙚𝙨: UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation This shade range goes by skin tones and undertones. Very fair, fair, olive, rich tan, brown, dark brown. * I own their complexion line and LOVE it. There is a review on my profile Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation A huge range with many undertone combos! FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation The first really inclusive line of shades, but needs work in the undertones IMO. flesh - Pure Liquid Foundation Awesome shade range and really goes into the deep shades w/ a variety of undertones. NARS - Soft Matte Complete Foundation An expanded foundation shade range with multiple undertones! Those are just a few lines that come to mind! Cmnt your undertone below! #cheriecreator

Red Lipstick? That’s Where The Drama Begins
UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation T1N. Easy to apply and stays even without setting powder or spray. COLOURPOP - Going Coconuts One of Colourpop’s better palette’s easy to apply and the colors are nicely pigmented. A good neutral palette for everyday wear. HOURGLASS - Unlocked Instant Extensions Mascara Worst Mascara Ever. #Sydney Grace - Paris Skies[products]#[ThreeStars] Very pigmented and deeper than I expected. It eventually blended out but it took work. COLOURPOP - Lippie Stix Goldie. They were not fulling around with the red of this pen. It is intense. I topped it with COLOURPOP - Lux Lip Gloss in Renaissance which was a mistake. Should have left the matte lip intact. Next time I will pair Goldie with a sparkling metallic eye to tone down the intensity factor.

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
