Worth it? UOMA Beauty Concealer + Contour Stick
UOMA Beauty Concealer and Contour Stick are very popular (at least in the makeup circles that I follow). UOMA Beauty in general has garnered a lot of attention, and, I finally got around to trying some products out. So, for these two products, I’m going to answer: are they worth it? Answer is: YES YES AND YES!!!!! These two products are amazingggg. First, the concealer UOMA BEAUTY - Stay Woke Luminous Brightening Concealer has a beautiful consistency that brightens and conceals without looking cakey. Retailing for $25, I think you get a BANG for your buck with this product. And this is coming from someone who has never spent more than $10 on a concealer 😂 Second, the contour stick UOMA BEAUTY - Stay Woke Luminous Brightening Concealer is a wonderful product that gives nice 2-in-1 action. I adore anything that is a multi tasker because I am constantly on the go and, well, late, haha. It’s simple to use, and they have a wide range of shades for a wide range of skin tones. UOMA Beauty in general has done a great job with their shade ranges, and the quality of their products is unbelievable. And that’s on beautifully Black and Woman owned baby 💃🏾 Final thoughts: I highly suggest these two products. I use the “bronze venus” shade for the concealer and the contour stick. If you are someone who is commonly left out for makeup selections in contour products and high quality concealer products, this is definitely a dynamic duo to give a try. Happy makeup hunting and thank you for reading ! ❤️

CREAM CONTOUR TIPS AND TRICKS! #cheriepartner
Contour on fleek! Follow tips And tricks I’ve learned for a great contour! It seems like highlighting and contouring are here to stay and not really going out of style. It’s been a while, but do you know how to properly contour? 𝐂𝐑𝐄𝐀𝐌 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐨𝐮𝐫 _________________ Let’s talk about cream contour products and my favorite ones! UOMA BEAUTY - Double Take Contour Stick My go to! This contour stick has blown away all of my other favorites. + It’s creamy and pigmented. + Not patchy. + Easy to blend! + comes in shades for all different skin tones! Some other favorites of mine: KKW BEAUTY - Crème Contour & Highlight Sets 𝐓𝐢𝐩𝐬 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐚𝐧 𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐲 𝐚𝐛𝐝 𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐨𝐮𝐫! Follow along with photos above! ① LIGHT HANDED— build up your pigment. you always want to start off with a little bit of product. You can easily build up your contour if you want it darker, but it’s more work to make it lighter if you start too heavy handed. If you look at my photo above, I only used that much product on each side of my cheek to contour my cheeks and forehead! ② PLACEMENT — where to apply. Specifically for the cheeks, you’ll want to start right at the top of your ear and go diagonally down towards the corner of your mouth. Tap just a tiny bit of product right at the top near your ear and basically in your hair line. Do not bring the product all the way down your cheeks yet. When blending out with a sponge or brush you will do this. ③ Get it done! — BLEND IT OUT. To blend it out take your pick of a sponge or brush. I like to use a damp beauty blender. I pinch my beauty blender together to make a line and use precise and soft tapping/bouncing motion to blend out. ALWAYS BLEND UP above your cheek bones. Envision where you want your contour to be and blend up from there. You’ll also want to blend into the hair line. While you blend you can bring the sponge down towards the direction of the corner of your mouth, but do not blend your contour all the way down!! Stop about half way or where the center of your pupil is. Even if your cheek bones aren’t prominent you will still be able to feel where your cheekbones are at to help guide you for where to blend out your contour. ④ finishing touches — perfect it! I personally like to make sure my contour is nice and soft, but noticeable. Depending on how strong of a contour I want, I’ll add more product and blend out more. If it looks good I’ll make sure it’s not patchy or give it a crisp like with foundation or concealer underneath it blended out. The overall process doesn’t take long at all for me and gets easier with practice. Leave your tips in the comments! #cheriepartner

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!

Brows for days!
New #makeupmonday I have made the decision to explore WOC makeup (and skincare) brands and made my first purchase with Uoma Beauty. I absolutely love what this brand stands and knew I needed to give it a try! ———————————————————————————— “UOMA - pronounced OMA (uh-mah) means beautiful and we believe that beauty starts the moment you decide to be yourself. We exist to re-write the rules of inclusivity and diversity to create a world of beauty that truly is for all of us. UOMA Beauty is the most inclusive black-owned beauty brand. Founded by Nigerian born, LA & London based former beauty executive Sharon Chuter, the UOMA Beauty range is rebellious, innovative and created for all. At UOMA we are an empowered tribe. Our race is human, our people are free, our language is color. All are welcome to our beautiful tribe.” ____________________________________________ I’ve started with their UOMA BEAUTY - Brow-Fro Kit as I am always struggling to fill out my brows. I love all three products but unfortunately the shade it too light for me. This is the only disadvantage I’ve found to ordering makeup online. It’s so hard to guess which shade will be right for you. But each brow product it so easy to work with. I especially love the UOMA BEAUTY - BROW-FRO Blow Out Gel ! I can hopefully get it on my range the next time I place and order as I’d like to give the foundation a try in the future. I am LOVING the UOMA BEAUTY - Double Take Contour Stick in shade 3 honey/honey as the deeper color blends like butter and the highlight is gorgeous! Perfect for my brow bones, nose and high points of the cheek! And you can’t go wrong as right now instead of $40 it’s a whopping savings and only $15! The Brow-Fro Kit is on sale as well from $70 to $50! Have you tried anything from Uoma Beauty? I’d be very curious to hear what your faves are as I make the change to be more inclusive! Also, if you don’t follow @heysharonc on IG (founder) you’re missing out! An absolute beauty inside and out! ❤️
