FLUFFY BROWS IN 1 MINUTE
I’ve seen countless videos on the web on how to get fluffy brows but there are always way to many steps or products involved. Today, I am going to show you how to get fluffy brows in 1 minute with 1 product. The product I love to use for extreme fluff is the Glossier Boy Brow. This product has saved my life this year! It retails for $16 and comes in 5 shades. Glossier. - Boy Brow My shade is brown but I would say to go with whatever the darkest shade of your hair is. It’s extremely easy to use and mess free. I always fill in my brows first and fluff them after. Typically, I start at the front and make my way to the back of my brow - brushing it upwards. It looks so nice as an everyday look or for going out! A pop of color eyeshadow would look amazing with fluffy brows 😍 That’s it! The process is so simple and cute but is so trendy. Let me know your thoughts ✨
Excited about NY, going to prep my skin up tonight 🥰, not 100% sure what mask I will use. So I have had glossier for a couple of weeks now, so have had a good play with the products. First off the packaging is spot on! My opinions on the products. 🔸Cloud paint: Really like these! Really pigmented and apply really well and last a while, even on my slightly oily summer face. The one I have been reaching for is “dusk” which is a brownish nude, and is so perfect for everyday. I apply with my fingers then buff out with an eco tools stripping brush. 🔸Balm Dotcom: These are pretty good and I like them but I wouldn’t say they are must have, I have a variety of balms that work just as well. 🔸Boybrow: love this! I have been growing my brows out and using a brow serum to help with the growth as I over plucked in my 20s and also lost some hair when I was pregnant. This brow gel gives my brows volume and gives me actual boy brows, I could be competing with my husband right now! 🔸Lashslick: Nice mascara for everyday natural look. 🔸Haloscope: In colour quartz. Very Dewy highlighter. I like it but have to be careful when I use it, it can “move” my foundation if I am not careful and if my face is oily it can make it look oilier. So quite like the products, and for the price point they are good! They are perfect for a natural look, and that is their selling point. My favourite is the cloud paints, very pigmented and easy to blend and don’t settle into pores.
battle of the brow gels 🤺 // bushy brow look
I’ve been OBSESSEDDDD with brow gels ever since COVID hit since I refuse to do a full face of makeup only to sit on a few zoom meetings a day with my camera off in half of them. for a minimal makeup look, I do brow gels and lip gloss and call it a day! I’ve used a ton of brow gels in the past and none of them hold up my super straight and thin brows and make them look fuller and bushy (soap brow look). most of them deposit color onto my skin instead of actually geling down my brows, so here are a few of the brow products that DIDN’T work for me, and the two that did: COLOURPOP - Brow Boss Gel sadly didn’t do anything for me but deposit pigment on my skin. I know people rave about this one but it doesn’t actually gel my finicky brow hairs. Glossier. - Boy Brow sadly this barely deposited color on my brows and didn’t actually “gel” them into place (think: soap brows sticking up!) I don’t think my brows have enough hair or thickness for this brow gel, but if you have naturally nice brows, this might be a good one for you. ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel while this brow gel did provide some “gel” aspect to it and helped my brow hairs stay lifted, it was somewhat hard to work with because the brush is larger than the typical brow gel brush. COVERGIRL - Easy Breezy Volumizing Brow Gel this is one of the better brow gels I’ve tried from the drugstore AND it’s more accessible and affordable. though I felt like it did lift my brow gels and keep them in place, the pigment was lackluster. I would still recommend this one for those that have Covergirl accessible to them and would like to invest in a more affordable option. PACIfICA - Highest Def Hemp Fiber Brow Set DING DING! my brow gel winner! ✨ this brow gel is EVERYTHING I’ve ever wanted in a brow gel. it lifts my brow hairs and keeps them in place and contains micro fibers that enhance my real brow hairs and make them look fluffy and thick with absolutely no other brow product. I was absolutely stoked when I found this product and have repurchased since. this is what I thought the Glossier Boy Brow hype would be like, and is available at Ulta for a fairly affordable price (and coupons and discounts can be applied toward Pacifica!). since using this brow gel, I’ve seldom used other brow gels or brow product and would totally recommend to any other *passionate* brow gel lovers like me. overall, I would 100% recommend the Pacifica brow gel and it’s become an absolute HG, especially working from home. although it’s affordable, the Covergirl one is a great alternative if you’d like something more wallet-friendly and accessible. I wouldn’t recommend any high end brow gel or the hyped Glossier one because I think there’s better options, especially if you have stubborn brows like mine. what’s your fave brow product?? would love to know!

Slay Your Next Zoom Interview!
Hey Cherie Sisters! 👯♀️ Times are changing and I know interviews are most likely being done via zoom nowadays with covid and social distancing. Here are some makeup tips I have on how to slay your next zoom interview. First of all, being on camera isn’t the same as being in person so how you would normally apply your makeup in person isn’t gonna look the same digitally. ✨ FACE •I normally would opt in for a natural looking foundation. However, since that cameras tend to wash you out, I would go for a medium to full coverage. I used my COLOURPOP - Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Hydrating Foundation •I say the same for concealer. I used my tarte - Shape Tape Concealer •Cream contour and highlight to give your face dimension on screen. I used FENTY BEAUTY - Match Stix Trioin the shade Mocha and Bamboo •Apply blush heavier than normal and go for a bright color. You want something on your face that pops and adding warmth to your cheeks will make you appear you have more life. I used MILANI - MILANI Baked Blush in Berry Amore ✨EYES •To appear wide awake, apply more eyeshadow than usual as well. Normally, I’d skip eyeshadow during interviews, but on camera you might look washed out so applying more than normal contours your eye shape. Use a matte medium brown shade for the crease. •Apply lots of mascara or even natural looking falsies. On zoom, you’re able to see the lighting and how you will appear on screen. Having voluminous lashes will add definition to your eyes and it will make them appear brighter on camera ✨LIPS I love using Rare Beauty - Lip Soufflé Matte Lip Cream in Courage! Applying a lipstick will make you appear more put well together ✨LIGHTING •I highly recommend a ring light. Bad lighting can be super distracting and while good lighting can make you a lot friendlier and more personable. •Make sure the light source is in front of you and not the side or from your back ✨JEWELRY Use subtle jewelry to add a little accent. I added silver earrings and a small black rectangle pendant necklace. ✨HAIR I guess this depends where you work, but if you have an interview for a corporate position, I recommend a low pony or a low bun. •if you prefer to wear your hair down make sure you can see your face clearly and your hair is out of your face ✨ADDITIONAL TIPS •Make you sure you use a professional virtual background. Having a messy background is distracting •Use headphones to cancel out random noises such as the fan and etc. •Make sure you lock your dog in the other room! I definitely made a mistake of not locking my dog and the guy who was interviewing me definitely asked me about his random barks. Here are some tips and tricks for zoom interview. I hope you find this helpful! Francesca 💋
A Zoom Patient Encounter ft Glossier’s Niteshine
HONEST FEMME FINDS: It’s the end of the academic year which means our final series of mock-patient encounters. Only one more year until we start rotating through the hospitals (kind of glad I slipped through the COVID-19 mess)! During these patient encounters, patient actors interact with students through Zoom, and we do get graded on a scale of 1-5 how professional and clean we look! After a month of barely leaving the house and putting on makeup, I figured today was my perfect chance to try out my bulk order from Glossier. The play highlighter in Niteshine has been one of the few new products that’s stood out to me. Here are some of my thoughts. Glossier. - Niteshine Highlighter Concentrate COLOR: ultra pigmented highlighter with heavy pink/rose undertones. A little pigmented for an everyday office look but adds a perfect amount of depth over a blurred MacBook webcam during a zoom call. Can easily make it an everyday highlighter if used lightly. APPLICATION: applicator looks like a lipgloss wand. I normally just use my finger, dab the tip and apply with my hands. The wand does come in handy if I want to line my nose or lower waterline. PRICE: I bought this in a set and on sale but it normally retails for $20 a piece, again like many glossier products, a bit pricey for the amount they give you (0.34 fl Oz). I’d say still worth it for how quickly it’s made it’s way into my light makeup routine! Before this, I solely used the NYX liquid illuminate for years and years.
💪🏼Can't Live Without! Glossier Boy Brow💪🏼
Just like most Asains, I have super sparse brows and I'm also super lazy so I don't like wasting a bunch of time to get a perfect filled that does not look non-existent. I looked around for the easiest way possible to get easy and decent brows and that is when I foundGlossier. - Boy Brow when I went to a Glossier popup store in Austin. Before going, I looked up some products and I saw soooo many review on the Boy Brow. I found out that it is inspired by the traditional hair pomade which keeps hair in place while not making its' texture become too stiff😯. When I tried the product at Glossier, I fell in love! ♥️It is absolutely super easy to use and if you're someone like me who wants a more natural and "no make-up" look then this is the right product for you. It does not clump the brows but it allows you to shape and groom your brows into place. The texture of the product is creamy and waxy yet brushable consistency☺️. The packaging is a super tiny tube that looks like a mascara. The spoolie is shorter than a mascaras brush but I feel like the length is pretty easy to use. I like this product and can't live without it because it is so easy to use. You can't really mess up with this product tbh. I also like the formula since it contains Oleic acid, lecithin, and atelocollagen which are all ingreduents that help condition and moisturize the brows👌🏻. This product only comes in 3 subtly tinted shades: blond, brown, and black. When I picked out my shade, I was in between brown and black and I was scared that brown would be too light and black would be too dark but when I tried brown on, it was perfect! I think it's because it is a super subtle tint so it blends pretty well with my brows. I would definately recommend 👍🏻this prodcut for lazy and natural look seekers like me since it is so easy to use. The only thing I would warn you about is that this product is SO tiny so make sure to keep an eye on it since I feel like it's pretty easy to lose. This product is $16 for only 3/12g/0.11 oz so it is slightly on the expensive side but I feel like its worth it since really little product is needed for a single use.
