Dark circles ✓ Crepiness ✓ Fine lines ✓ By your late 30s/early 40s the under eye area takes on a whole new list of characteristics which means switching up your under eye concealer. So I’ve been testing out some faves to find the “Best Under Eye Concealers for Mature Skin”. Lately I’ve been testing the @lauramercier Flawless Fusion Ultra Longwear Concealer*, a medium to full coverage, weightless concealer that “perfects, hydrates, and blurs with up to 12 hours of crease-resistant wear”. Highlighted Ingredients: - Skin Fusion Technology: An exclusive blend of flexible, long-wearing, emulsified polymers fuse to skin for up to 12 hours of wear that’s transfer-, sweat-, humidity-, and water-resistant. - Blurring Powder Blend (customized combination of Silk Powder and Silica): Helps create a smooth, light-diffusing film on skin that blurs the look of fine lines and wrinkles while creating a soft-focus effect. I’m a long-time fan of @lauramercier and give this formula a 4.5 out of 5. It blends beautifully for a really natural, airbrushed finish. It’s very lightweight and doesn’t oxidize so I find it to be a perfect match. It also perfectly camouflages blemishes and redness around the nose area. I deducted a 1/2 star only because I do experience the slightest bit of creasing under my eyes if I do not remember to use a very hydrating eye cream. Would be perfect for me with a minor increase in hydration but it’s not a deal-breaker for me at all! Overall it’s a great buy at $29.00 for 0.23 oz/ 7 mL. As a bonus, the lovely @arieloznyc also included a bottle of their beloved Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation and I am smitten! Will do a thorough review and maybe even a GRWM video soon but I really like this formula!. It’s the perfect “your skin but better finish” that I love! laura mercier - Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Concealer laura mercier - Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation

Debbie Thornberry Halloween Make-Up 🖤🧡
As promised from yesterday’s post (if you haven’t seen it go check it out I have a tutorial on how to do this hair) here is the make up inspiration for Debbie Thornberry. I grew up with The Wild Thornberrys amongst other great cartoons from the late 90s and early 2000s. Debbie was my favorite character on the show. When I got my TIGI - A Wave We Go Adjustable Deep Waver and used it for the first time she was immediately what popped into my head. Base: For the base I started off with the laura mercier - Hydrating Pure Canvas Primer purely because my skin has been a little drier with the weather change. This is a must for dry skin. It has a lightweight cream formula that adds hydration without being too heavy. Plus it’s silicone free (which doesn’t bother me but I know it’s important to some people). Then I used my favorite ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation in the shade 1N0. Afterwards I went in with my new laura mercier - Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Concealer in the shade .5 N. I’m obsessed with this stuff! It has the coverage of Shape Tape without being so heavy. It’s very creamy and opaque. It’s been a huge winner for me lately. Then I set everything with the laura mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder and laura mercier - Secret Brightening Powder for Under Eyes Eyes: Debbie doesnt really wear much make up so I decided to keep it really simple. I used the KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Dagger Tattoo Liner Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner to draw a wing as her eye shape is very angular. I used the benefit - BADgal BANG! 24 Hour Eye Pencil in my waterline and the benefit - Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara to finish off the eyes. I kept the brows pretty simple too only using the benefit - Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel in shade 4.5 for some color. Blush/Bronzer: To me it doesn’t look like Debbie wears blush or bronzer but I wanted to update the look a little so I did. I used the third shade in the NYX - Highlight & Contour Pro Palette for my contour. It’s a really nice, cool toned contour that blends out perfectly on the skin. I also mixed the two blushes from the HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Face Palette and placed them on the apples of the cheeks to brighten up the face. Lips: For lips I chose the stila - Shine Fever Lip Vinyl in Turbo. With the time period of the show I didn’t imagine liquid lipsticks would be a huge thing so I decided to go with more of a gloss. This lip vinyl is a perfect opaque gloss with a mauve tone to it. It’s definitely not transfer proof and will slide around if you’re not careful (definitely not mask friendly).

2020 HALLOWEEN VIBES🎃
I know Halloween this year is going to be a little different but I still wanted to get into the spirit somehow! 🎃 Years ago, Chrisspy on YT created this dope gangster clown look and I know I wanted to give it a shot this yet so here is my take on it! I have to say, this isn’t terribly hard but it’s time consuming to ensure everything is blended and the lines are looking straight! 👍🏽 STEPS make sure you have a very mattified base so the pencil liner and liquid DONT drag so I used COVER FX - Power Play Foundation and then set my entire face with the NIKKIA JOY COSMETICS - Velvet Finishing Powder which really holds and sets the skin in place I then applied blush because DUH it’s a clown look 🤡 so I used the AOA studio - Perfect Powder Blush to add a flush of orange to my cheeks with a really light concealor, I drew three semi circles; two above my brows and the other on my chin using the laura mercier - Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Concealer and just used that to carve them out and set with my powder as well for the entire look so the liner, I used the NYX - Epic Ink Liner and to blend out the liner in the middle of my face, I used the black shadow from the MORPHE - Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette I also used the brown tones in this to add some brown shadow to my crease for my lips, I used the SEPHORA COLLECTION - Rouge Lip Tint and then added the black shadow around the edges and blended it in and used the liquid liner to add the smile lines And then throw on your costume! This one is super easy because all you need is a white tank top and a plaid shirt (a red/navy or red/black are the best choices), throw on some jewellery if you want like hoops. Button on the top button of the shirt, and that’s it! For my hair, I went for a slick back look which I loved for this badass look but you can curl your hair, even throw on a bandana, just play around🤗 #cheriepartner

🎖RANKINGS: Under Eye Concealer Edition
Under eye concealer! A must for anyone like me who is a night owl and spends waaaaay more time scrolling TikTok then actually sleeping at night. There's a few things I look for in a concealer: coverage, blendability, and whether or not it creases. Let's get into the rankings! 1. Too Faced - Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer - this checks all the boxes for me! Great coverage, hydrating so it doesn't crease and blends so well. It's super lightweight but doesn't move all over the place! I actually use this all over the face too! 2. NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer so this is similar in coverage to the Born This Way concealer, but a bit drier and thicker. It's also not heavy, but doesn't blend as easily as some others. 3. YVES SAINT LAURENT - All Hours Concealer this is my favorite in terms of creaminess and blendability! The only downside I have with it is the shade range, I wish it ran a bit more yellow and had way more shade options. 4. laura mercier - Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Concealer this is the one I reach for if I don't need a ton of coverage! It's not as high in coverage, I'd call it a medium coverage but it has great blendability and is super lightweight. I also love the shade range and like to use this all over the face as well! 5. Jouer - Essential High Coverage Liquid Concealer so this is the highest coverage but I'm not a big fan of the texture. It's a whipped texture that I find really dry and hard to blend. I think this would be better all over the face and actually wouldn't bother using it under the eyes. #CheriePartner

Dry Skin? Heres the products you NEED!
We all know how tough dry skin can be, as someone who used to struggle with extremely dry skin which has my moisture barrier still damaged and created hyper pigmentation in my skin, heres some products that can help heal it, as well as products that are made for dry skin. Avène - Cicalfate Restorative Skin Cream This mostriuser is a thick restoring product, but is not oily or sticky at all. It minimises redness through its products and blue tint, as well as giving you a non oily glow without any break outs. Cetaphil, QV, Sukin, Cerave did not work for me when using their mostriusers. My skin was so dull and dehydrated until finding this product. Avène - Skin Recovery Cream Rich This mostriuser is a thinner mostriuser, I would reccomend this after an exfoiliater or scrub as it helps restore the damage afterwards, but not long term like the first product I mentioned. laura mercier - Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Concealer With dry skin, its hard to find a concealer that doesnt cling to ur imperfections and flaky skin, or something that doesnt make you look cakey within one drop. This concealer is absolutely amazing for dry skin, and it makes it appear as if you arent wearing anything at all! I highly reccomend this conclear, its medium-light coverage depending on the shade you get. Heres some products that are popular BUT are not good for your skin. AT ALL! sukin - Detoxifying Facial Scrub Super Greens CLINIQUE - CLINIQUE Face Scrub for Men ST. Ives - Gentle Smoothing Oatmel Scurb & Mask ANY PHYSICAL EXFOILATER OR SCRUB (this is just a few) Scrubs are extremely damaging especially for dry skin. While the benifets of exfoilating are very promising, its way better to invest into chemical exfoiliants rather than physical. FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Concealer This concealer is popular and was my first, it is very good for normal-oily skin types but it seems to cling on to imperfections on dry skin. Ive mixed in a mostriuser into mine and its going pretty well, but its not a good concealer to start with. HOPE THIS HELPED<3

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
