Turning myself into Merengue from ACNH 🍓
Hi, my name’s Francine and I’m addicted to Animal Crossing!!! 🐶🐷🐱🐰🦊💗 If you guys have been following along you’ve probably seen my other ACNH inspired lewks. Someone suggested I did Merengue next, and honestly she was already on my list! Merengue is a normal rhino villager and her name comes from “meringue”, a type of dessert made with egg whites and sugar. My husband has her on his island and she’s the cutest!! 🍰 I also got inspo from @neoini on IG! They did this look a while ago, and I’m just beyond obsessed. Here’s what I used for this look: 🍓 e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer 🍰DIOR - Forever Skin Correct Concealer 🍓essence - All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder 🍰essence - Satin Touch Blush 🍓COLOURPOP - Strawberry shake shadow palette 🍰CALEY COSMETICS - Beach Babe Natural Lips 🍓Glossier. - Glossier. Lip Gloss 🍰Freck BEAUTY - THE ORIGINAL FRECKLE 🍓OFRA - Limited Edition Rodeo Drive Highlighter Ornament 🍰 ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Gel How did I do it: • First I started by prepping my skin, so I used my favorite primer atm. The elf poreless putty primer gives me a smooth, flawless base every time. • Next I spot concealed with the Dior forever skin correct concealer, I wear shade 1W. • I like to keep my brows soft when I’m doing villager inspired makeup lol, so I only went in with the dipbrow gel, which I don’t love but I can’t find my elf wow brow 😔 • Now for the eyes I used one of my favorite palettes from CP and did a soft, shimmery pink eye bc the lil strawberry nose is the focal point here! • The nose was so hard guys, I used a white concealer and a green eyeliner from a now discontinued beauty brand and just carefully tried to draw a strawberry. Any white creamy shadow or concealer will work and any green shadow or liner is ok! I used the shade Daiquiri from the Strawberry Shake palette for the rest. Ta-da! • To set my makeup I used the essence - All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder I purchased this powder when I did my Flora makeup and needed a white fixing powder. I went with Essence because honestly I rarely ever use mattifying powders for my regular makeup routine, and Essence is inexpensive and they’re powders are just top tier. This powder is supposed to be “invisible” so I just build up until I can no more and it works great! Its surprisingly lightweight even when I apply like 10 layers to get maximum opacity. Also the price is hard to beat! $3.99 for 8 grams 🙌 • I used the Satin Touch Blush in Coral love. • For the freckles I used the Freck BEAUTY - THE ORIGINAL FRECKLE the liquid-y formula and small brush makes it easy to draw fake freckles, but it’s a little warm for my taste and way too small. Def not a need.

BRAND SPOTLIGHT: GLOSSIER
Glossier is a brand that I’ve always admired. Their marketing is truly amazing and there’s no other fanbase so dedicated to one brand. With that said, they have come out with some great products and some that leave me disappointed. The Hits: Glossier. - Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick in Like, Jam, Leo & Cake I love this lipstick. I have gone through 2 tubes of the shade Like and 1 tube of the shade Jam. It’s beautiful on the lips, slips on easily, and doesn’t dry them out despite being a soft matte formula. Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color in Storm, Dawn, Puff, Dusk & Haze If you love the watercolor blush look, this is the one for you. It’s a super lightweight and thin formula that blends in seamlessly into the skin. It meshes really well whether or not you have foundation underneath and the finish is undetectable on the skin! The shade Dusk also doubles as a warm-toned bronzer! Glossier. - Vinylic Lip High Shine Lacquer in Pony & Bank If you’re looking for glossy, pigmented color, these Vinylic Lips will definitely impress you! Not only are they long-lasting, they leave a stain on your lips once the gloss wears off so you’re never left without color! It’s not sticky and leaves a decent amount of shine- it’s my lip gloss dream! (Hint: Glossier Vinylic Lip > Glossier Lip Gloss) Honorable mentions that aren’t pictured (AKA products I ran out of and haven’t had time to repurchase): - Boy Brow Adds volume, color and small fibers to thicken the brows for a natural, bushy look! - Brow Flick Perfect for natural brow days where I want to pinpoint the areas in my brows to add a few strokes of brow hairs! - Lash Slick The only way to get “lash extensions” without getting them! This adds lots of length and a bit of volume- it also never smudges on me! - Stretch Concealer My no-makeup makeup day ESSENTIAL. I seriously have to pick up another! It adds coverage and looks just. like. skin! The Misses: Glossier. - Colorslide Technogel Eye Pencil in Disaster Class & Stable Relationship It’s such a shame I don’t like these because the color range is so unique and fun. The formula is just way too hard and it tugs on my eye area (which I cannot tolerate)! If these were creamier, I’d buy literally all the shades. Glossier. - Lidstar Glistening Eye Glow in Fawn & Cub These aren’t the worst that I’ve tried from Glossier, but I’ve tried better from other brands. These liquid eyeshadows look promising when you first swatch them with the applicator but once you take a brush or your finger to blend, it blends away into nothing. It just looks like a faded pile of shimmer on the lids. It only works if you apply it with the applicator, leave it alone and don’t try to touch it! Glossier. - Glossier. Lip Gloss in Clear This gloss looks beautiful but it’s sticky and feels thick. No matter how thin of a layer I apply, it’s uncomfortable and drying! It’s beautiful for editorial photos though!

Glossier Lip Gloss VS. Kosas Wet Lip Oil Gloss
Glossier. - Glossier. Lip Gloss $14, 3.5ml - 3 shades - thick formula - feels sticky - dries out my lips Kosas - Wet Lip Oil Gloss $27, 4.6 - 5 shades - thin formula - feels slippery & smooth - moisturizing My Choice: To me, Kosas wins by far! It’s so much more comfortable to wear and it doesn’t dry out my lips! In fact, it actually keeps my lips moisturized and feeling soft. I can build it up by adding several layers if I’m looking for an uber glossy look, and it still never feels too thick and heavy! I’m definitely contemplating picking up a few more shades!!! 🤔 The Glossier Lip Gloss looks amazing in photos just because of how reflective and thick it is on the lips, but it feels way too sticky and heavy. It also ends up drying out my lips if I wear it for too long.

I WANT IT. I GOT IT. SPOOKY GLAM WEEK LOOK 5️⃣
If you are looking to be a glamorous bad b*tch pop star with the voice of an angel this Halloween, then I suggest you cheer and save this post and hit that follow button! Because mama, this is my Ariana Grande VMAs look for Halloween. Side note, WHO HAS LISTENED TO HER NEW ALBUM POSITIONS?!! MAMA! What a album filled with bops. Ariana Grande literally saving 2020. Anyways, this is my recreation of her VMAs performance makeup that I included in my post. This was my first attempt at a double cut crease and this was a challenge. 😂 But I’m always up for a glam challenge. So if you like what you see, here is the product breakdown and step by step tutorial. What you’ll need: Warm brown shadow. This will be your main crease shade. I used hot gossip from the COLOURPOP - Bare Necessities Shadow Palette. You will cut this crease pretty dramatically leaving a little bit of your brow bone. You will also wing it out. Practice makes perfect. I would say I’m almost perfect at cut crease but I know I can get better. It’s definitely a process. Stark white shimmer eyeshadow. I used the white shadow from the MORPHE - The James Charles Paletteand added a shimmer on top. I pack this all over my actual crease. You will cut this again. A pink champagne color. I used NYX - Prismatic Eyeshadowin girl talk. This will be your lid color. a nude lip color/ clear gloss. I used NYX - Slim Lip Pencilin nude truffle. I ran this all over my lips and topped it off with Glossier. - Glossier. Lip Gloss. last but not least my favorite, RHINESTONES! You will use mini silver ones. Place them between the white and brown shadows and follow the curve. And that’s it! Ngl because of the cut crease, this was not an easy look but if you attempt to do this look, tag me! Hope y’all have been enjoying spooky glam week! If you haven’t checked them out, go check them out and giving them a cheer! It’s been super fun and I’m so sad it’s coming to an end. But I’ll hold the drama and save it for tomorrow’s look. 👀😉 Until tomorrow my loves, Xoxo 💋 #CheriePartner
COLOURPOP-Bare Necessities Shadow Palette
Model off-duty look ✨ #CheriePartner
Have you ever wondered how do models look so good on AND off the runway? My research tells me the key to that off duty, “I didn’t even try” look is achievable by following these easy steps and keeping it simple 🙌 Let’s start with skin. Models seem to have flawless skin, to achieve that perfected look we just need a glowy base and an even skin tone. For this look I skipped foundation altogether and opted for concealer only, I went in with the DIOR - Forever Skin Correct Concealer this creamy concealer gives full coverage but a natural finish that is never cakey. I used it to spot conceal and to cover my under-eyes circles. Next is brows, models keep they’re brows defined but feathery. I used Lime Crime - Bushy Brow Precision Pen & ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Gel I recommend just following the natural shape of you brow and not overdoing it. I used the essence - Sun Club Matt Bronzing Powder to give my cheeks and jaw some definition, and on my eyes as well. Essence makes beautiful powder products, in my opinion. This formula is buttery soft and blends beautifully. I personally prefer products that can be built up since they’re more forgiving, rather than having something super pigmented upon first application because I’ve been guilty of going overboard. It has a coconut-y scent but it’s very faint, tho I’d steer clear if you’re sensitive to fragrance. You can find this for $4.99 at Ulta! For blush I went in with the essence - Satin Touch Blush in ‘Satin Coral’ for a subtle touch of color and essence - Pure Nude Highlighter which is probably my favorite powder highlighter ever. Since I used all powders for my makeup today I decided to give the e.l.f. - Elf+ Glow Dewy Mist a try! I picked this up recently and wow, I’m actually very impressed with the mist itself but the packaging is not the best ☹️ the nozzle just kind of spits out the mist and leaves big droplets on the skin which could potentially ruin all your work. BUT, let’s talk about the product inside because I think it’s really good! This mist is formulated with coconut water, hyaluronic acid and argan oil as key ingredients, all amazing ingredients for hydrated, dewy skin. It’s kinda milky in texture and feels very refreshing, helps powders melt beautifully on skin but I wish it was more of a fine mist. Lastly, for lips I went in with the CALEY COSMETICS - Beach Babe Natural Lips in ‘Nude’ which is very close to my natural lip shade, added some Glossier. - Balm Dotcom in Cherry since it has a subtle red tint and I think a subtle lip is key here. I topped it all off with the Glossier. - Glossier. Lip Gloss in Red. Love this gloss, it isn’t goopy or heavy, and the shine lasts long. And that’s it! Lmk if you have any tricks to looking effortless below!
fashion week inspired makeup! 🖤
I had SO much fun recreating a look from this year’s fashion week. I decided to merge my 3 favorite looks into one! I took the bold, glossy lip from oscar de la renta, the exaggerated singular lash from rodarte, and the “e-girl” heart beauty mark from christian siriano—I think it turned out so cool! I loved this challenge because I honestly had never looked through the fashion week makeup looks before, it is SO fun. the creativity and unique looks are so innovative and it was really fun to see I had a lot of the products needed to reproduce these looks in my own collection! I bet if y’all looked through some looks you’d realize you can replicate them too! ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick one of the best colors imo, “spicy” is such a gorgeous neon red. it also makes my teeth look SO white, lol. Glossier. - Glossier. Lip Gloss I loved using this to get that shiny top coat. this is a supremely comfortable gloss and I really appreciated that the doe foot didn’t get stained?? idk but I’m glad NYX - Matte Liquid Liner I made my heart with my eyeliner, it was easy because the brush is so so so thin. I feel like NYX makes some of the best eyeliners for graphic art! ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Blush Kit I love this kit because it has 4 shades of blush. each color is vastly different, but you can also blend them all together for a beautiful color. wet n wild - Ultimate Brow Retractable I have the thinner version, hands down my favorite eyebrow pencil. super pigmented, super soft, super sturdy! what more could you need. pleeeeease recreate your favorite look from this year’s fashion week! I want to see some more fun looks! #cheriepartner #cheriecreator
