Makeup For Video Interviews 🖥✨#CheriePartner
As a May 2020 graduate, I’ve been doing a lot of interviews and phone calls over the quarantine period for jobs and internships. Along the way I picked a few key tips for achieving a flawless, professional makeup look perfect for video calls. All I want is to make the impression that I’m put together and perfect for the role! Of course, everyone has different kinds of makeup looks, and specific parts of makeup that make it “signature” to them (like a strong winged liner, or bold lip, or even a super bare natural face!). But for me, my “signature” looks is something quite fresh-faced, glowy skin, defined eyes and a tinted lip! Tips: 1) Stay true to yourself! If you never wear a red lip, don’t wear a red lip to the interview. If you always have a beautiful eyeshadow look on, definitely put some eyeshadow on! The truth is, when you feel most like yourself, the more confident you will appear to others. 2) Video calls tend to wash you out, so if you’re applying a color product maybe add a little more than usual! Here is what I used: HOURGLASS - Illume Sheer Color Trio This is a the perfect product to bronze, blush AND highlight the face! The formula is super creamy and soft, but definitely packs a punch with its pigment. The highlight also gives off a beautiful glow on camera! ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Radiant Concealer I don’t feel the need for a foundation on camera as blemishes are generally not visible depending on video resolution. But I have really bad under eye circles that can make me look tired, so I always want a little concealer just to brighten up my face and eyes. This one is medium coverage with a natural finish on the skin. COLOURPOP - Brow Boss Pencil I always define my brows because they help to frame the face. This is an amazing inexpensive one that has the perfect waxy formula for adding fullness to the brows that looks natural. NUDESTIX - Magnetic Luminous Eyeshadow Defining my eyes is important to me because it’s a feature of my face that I really like. So a little glowy eyeshadow helps to bring attention to my eyes, helps me look a little more awake and defines it a little more. MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Mascara Full Fan Effect I know it’s near impossible to see individual lashes on video call but it helps a lot with defining my eyes! It also makes me feel more put together too just because I’d feel off if I had a full face of makeup and didn’t have mascara on. lisa eldridge - True Velvet Lipstick in Velvet Muse This is one of my favorite matte lipsticks because it’s super pigmented, non-drying but gives a matte finish. I add a little balm beforehand to keep my lips moisturized and to sheer the color a little. This is definitely a my-lips-but-better kind of shade.

My Natural, Cream Highlight & Contour Routine💖✨
We’ve all seen the super high contrast liquid highlight and contour routines on the internet and although they look amazing in photos and video, they don’t look the most natural in person. I love a good contoured and highlighted look, but I think keeping it natural is most important to me. Here’s how I cream highlight & contour for a naturally sculpted look: 1) Apply your cream contour product to areas of your face where you’d naturally have a shadow I like it under my cheekbones, along the forehead, under the jawbone, and along the sides of my nose 2) Apply your cream highlight product to areas of your face you’d like to highlight I like it under my eyes to brighten and conceal darkness, and also along the bridge of my nose to brighten 3) Blend your cream contour first and then blend your highlight *I actually don’t find I need to apply any foundation or base product before this. Instead, I just use a concealer to do any pin-point concealing on spots I want to cover! One of my favorite contour creams: NUDESTIX - Nudies All Over Face Color Bronze + Glow in Terracotta Tan I wouldn’t recommend using a shade that’s super cool-toned (as most brands contour shades market it like). I find that a neutral tone looks the most natural and skin-like (something not too cool or too warm). This formula by Nudestix is so creamy on the skin but blendable and sets down. It’s super long lasting but is still undetectable and seamless looking on the skin. One of my favorite cream highlights: ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Radiant Concealer in 2W I know this is just a concealer but why not “kill two birds with one stone” (that’s a horrible saying but idk how else to describe it!). When I highlight my face, I might as well also use a product that will add coverage and improve my complexion too? This creamy, medium-coverage concealer is beautiful on the skin and never looks dry or cakey. I use it almost everyday and it never fails me. Its very blendable and disappears into the skin while perfecting it.

Declutter With Me! CONCEALERS 💖✨ (Pros & Cons)
What I’m Keeping: MAKE UP FOR EVER - Full Cover Concealer in 6 This is my go-to concealer for blemishes and spots. It’s super waterproof and long-lasting so it’s perfect for keeping things covered all day! MAKE UP FOR EVER - Ultra HD Self-Setting Concealer in 30 A great all-rounded concealer that is buildable and natural looking while still providing great coverage! ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Radiant Concealer in 2W This medium to full coverage concealer leaves skin looking radiant and glowy without being overly dewy. I love using this under my eyes to brighten and conceal! The finish is perfect so I tend to use this everyday. ARMANI beauty - Power Fabric Concealer 5.25 This concealer is a tad dark for under my eyes but it’s the perfect thin consistency for mixing with my other concealers (when I’m more tan). The coverage is medium but buildable and has a natural satin finish. Glossier. - Stretch Concealer in G9 My favorite concealer for when I don’t want to put a full face of makeup on, but still have some spots I want to cover. It’s super emollient and creamy so it melts into the skin providing a hint of coverage and leaving a “makeup-free” looking glow. What I’m Decluttering: FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Concealer in 170 This concealer is too drying and full coverage for my preference. I don’t even have dry skin but everytime I apply this, whether on my face or under my eyes, it dries and makes my skin look crepey! benefit - Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer in 2 This is super similar to Tarte Shape Tape and Fenty’s concealer. The formula is slightly less thick than Fenty but thicker than Tarte. I find it looking to heavy on my face as I prefer more medium coverage concealers with a dewy finish. REVLON - Photoready Candid Antioxidant Concealer in 505 The formula reminds me of a liquid version of Glossier Stretch and as I’m keeping the glossier one, I don’t feel the need to keep this as well. The only difference between the two is that the finish of this isn’t as dewy as Glossier, so if that’s what you prefer, try this! The coverage is light to medium. rms beauty - Un" Cover-Up Cream Foundation in 22 I couldn’t justify keeping two cream pot concealers and I just prefer the more emollient formula of Glossier. This is a harder formula that takes some warming up and it dries slightly more satiny on the skin. The biggest downside is that this product contains coconut oil, which sometimes breaks my face out. Coconut oil seems to work fine on my body as a body oil but on the face, it’s a little too heavy for my skin to tolerate!

MY CONCEALER COLLECTION✨💖 An Overview 👀
Concealer is definitely one of my desert island products. I just think it quickly covers any spots and brightens under my eyes for a more awake look! Here is an overview of all my concealers: MAKE UP FOR EVER - Full Cover Concealer in 6 A must-have concealer for spot concealing. A little goes a looong way and it’s extremely long-lasting and waterproof! Perfect for keeping blemishes covered throughout the day. FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Concealer in 170 A full-coverage formula that blends easily into the skin for a flawless look. It’s thicker consistency but still blends well into skin. It has a satin-finish that look skin-like and I love that it comes in so many shades! benefit - Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer in 2 A full-coverage concealer that offers satin finish (honestly so similar to the Fenty Concealer). The texture reminds me of Shape Tape’s formula- thin but full coverage. It has a really nice big doe-foot applicator that easily and evenly distributes product on the face. REVLON - Photoready Candid Antioxidant Concealer in 005 A light/medium coverage concealer with a dewy finish. It’s not very buildable but definitely makes the skin look healthy and glowing. A great natural makeup day concealer. I don’t find that it looks that “photoready” on camera. MAKE UP FOR EVER - Ultra HD Self-Setting Concealer in 30 A great all-rounded concealer the provides great coverage, has a satin finish and looks skin-like. It also makes your skin look flawless on camera! ARMANI beauty - Power Fabric Concealer in 5.25 A medium-coverage concealer with a natural satin-matte finish on the skin. This has a thinner consistency compared to the rest of the concealers. It blends into the skin really well and definitely makes it look like you have no products on and just amazing skin. ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Radiant Concealer in 2W A medium-coverage concealer that is buildable to full-coverage and gives the skin a glowy finish. The doe-foot applicator also makes it super easy to use and apply quickly. rms beauty - Un" Cover-Up Cream Foundation in 22 A medium-coverage cream concealer that looks just like skin once applied and leaves a slightly dewy finish. It takes a bit of time for the product to warm up before applying to the face but can be easily blended into the skin. Glossier. - Stretch Concealer in G9 A medium-coverage cream concealer that gives the skin an ultra-glowy finish. It has a super emollient texture and meshes into the skin really well. When I wear this, I look like I’m having a great skin day. My next post.... a concealer declutter! Which of these concealers have you tried- which do you like/don’t like?

“No Makeup” Look for Video Calls✨ #CheriePartner
Looking like I’ve put in effort before a video call is good, but sometimes I just want to look a little more “effortless” for my more casual calls. This is my go-to “no-makeup” makeup look for video calls when I want to look put together but not overdone! ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Radiant Concealer I always always use a bit of concealer for my undereyes as they’re super dark (thanks mom!). This creamy concealer gives plenty of coverage and leaves a radiant skin-like finish. I apply a dot under each of my eyes and on any discoloration or acne scars on my face, and then blend it in either with my fingers or a fluffy brush. COLOURPOP - Brow Boss Pencil COLOURPOP - Brow Boss Gel Defining the brows helps to frame the face! I love these Brow Boss products from Colourpop because they’re inexpensive but perform just as well as any high-end brow products! The pencil is waxy but still creamy enough to show up in the brows. The gel is more of a whipped pomade texture and helps to lift and hold up the brows for a fluffy look! COLOURPOP - Super Shock Blush Adding a little bit of a blush to the cheeks AND to the outer crease of the eyelids will create a youthful look. I love this blush from Colourpop! It adds a natural radiance and color to the cheeks. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Lip Pop A glossy, tinted lip balm can also help to make you look more youthful and awake! This lip balm from Glow Recipe has AHA ingredients to exfoliate the lips and keep them soft. I also love the soft pink color that this gives the lips! What is your go-to look for video calls?

EXTREME Quarantine Glow-Up✨💖💨 #CheriePartner
I’m gonna be honest- I put on makeup maaaybe 1-2 times per week to go out. Wearing a mask everyday means I focus mainly on only my eye makeup as it’s the only part of me people can see. But it’s always mood-boosting to put on some makeup, fix up my hair and walk around the house with a “full on” look! The picture on the left is me basically on most days. I have all my skincare products on, my SPF and a sheer skin tint like ILIA - Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 . It’s my favorite skin tint for most days because it’s sheer and adds a little extra SPF. My hair is also a greasy mess because it’s usually in a bun on top of my head. The picture on the right is me with my old “go-to face of makeup”, slightly waved hair and a white linen shirt. I say old “go-to” because it’s not my “normal” look for everyday anymore! I have no place to go! *sigh* This look consists of: ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Radiant Concealer in 2W A medium coverage concealer that offers a smooth, radiant finish on the skin. HOURGLASS - Illume Sheer Color Trio A creamy, pigmented and long-wearing set of cream cheek products to bronze, blush and highlight. CHANEL - BAUME ESSENTIEL Multi-Use Glow Stick A high-shine highlight stick that has zero glitter and offers a reflective finish on the skin. COLOURPOP - Brow Boss Pencil A super skinny brow pencil with a waxy formula that can draw on hair-like strokes through the brow. COLOURPOP - Brow Boss Gel A whipped brow gel with amazing hold- and super affordable! DollyWink - DollyWink Liquid Eyeliner The best waterproof, extremely pigmented liquid eyeliner that doesn’t smudge, flake or bleed! MAYBELLINE - The Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara A high-hold waterproof mascara that keeps your lashes long, volumized and curled all day. Hair: ghd - Rose Gold Platinum+ Styler Set I put a few waves in my hair by bending a section of hair backwards and forwards. This creates a super soft wave effect for naturally volumized hair. Nature Lab. - Perfect Shine Oil Mist This lightweight, shine-boosting oil is a heat-protectant and style finisher all-in one! What is your go-to routine for a “Glow Up”?
