LET’S TALK BRONZER: Give me glow all year round!
Want to achieve a bronzy glow all year long? Keep reading! Bronzer is a great product that gives you that vacay glow! It comes in many forms but all give you that beautiful bronze. However, if you’ve never used this product before, there is a potential to go overboard and you’ll end up like a new cast member of the Jersey Shore show. (No shade at all! LOVE THE JERSEY SHORE! But the overuse of bronzer makes them all look like Oompa Loompas.) I’m going to give you the 411 on the types , how to apply them and which ones I think are the best. Make sure you cheer and follow me for more tips and tricks! Types: Powder: most typical and most beginner friendly. However be aware of the undertones! If you don’t pick the right one that matches your undertones, it will be an orangey mess. Use a big dome like bronzer brush like the MORPHE - E59 Tapered Bronzer Brushfor a nice diffused look. Of course, everyone knows the “3” bronzer application where you basically blend the bronzer on your face in a formation like the shape of the no 3. Cream/Stick: very natural looking and little bit intermediate. Best applied and blended out using a beauty blender. Pick up the product from the balm or stick using the blender and then applying it directly to the face with the blender. I wouldn’t necessarily apply this following the no 3 shape. I would focus this product on the perimeters of my face and blend using a damp beauty blender. Liquid: I have never used this form of bronzer before. It’s definitely something that I never though existed until I did my bronzer research. I would assume you would apply this like a cream bronzer. But lmk in the comments if you’ve ever used a liquid bronzer before. I’ll add your insights to my post and tag you in it. 😄 Best of the best: Powder: I think I’ve done a post on both of these but I love the PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzerand the benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzer. Both give wonderful diffused bronze glows and won’t give you a orangey look. Cream/Stick: The most recognizable cream bronzer would have to be the CHANEL - SOLEIL TAN DE Bronzing Makeup Base. Everyone who has it raves about it. But a $50.00 price tag is not for everyone. So thankfully #Sol body - Bronzing balm[products]#has been rumored to be a great more affordable dupe for the Chanel counterpart. It’s about $15.00 but Colourpop is having a sale right now so you can get it for 30% off. Liquid: Like I said before, I’ve never used this type of bronzer. But after doing some research bareMinerals - barePro Glow Liquid Bronzercame up when I was trolling Ulta. It has 4/5 ⭐️ on Ulta. It seems promising but I couldn’t tell you from experience of this is bomb or not. Hopefully someone in the comments will speak on liquid bronzers. Hope this was helpful! I love talking about makeup products and simplifying them as it can be overwhelming. Until tomorrow, Xoxo 💋 #CherieCreator

BATTLE OF THE DUPES PT.6: VACAY GLOW BRONZER 💫
PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzer VS. benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzer For my 6th battle of the dupes, I am putting these two classic bronzers through my dupe tests to see which bronzer will remain supreme. I’ll test them on the product aka the blendability, price and packaging. At the end, I will tell you which one is the best. But first, make sure you cheer and follow me! Product: Going to start off positive. Both bronzers are very blendable. Both are pigmented. But with my experience the PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzeris more suited for a overall bronze warmth of the face whereas benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzeris very versatile and I use it for both bronzing and contouring due to the matte of it. The color options between the two are very different. At first the benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzerwas marketed as “universal” and honestly, no. This is not a universal bronzer and I’m glad they realized that. They “expanded” the shade range however IT DEFINITELY CAN BE BETTER! Three shades is not enough and that’s where PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzeris much better. The shade range is much more extensive and I feel as a POC that POC are better represented in this product than the benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzer. Winner: PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzer: POC are much better represented with the shade range. Packaging: PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzerhas a coconut smell but my big bronzer brush can pick up more product. benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzeris odorless but the square packing doesn’t allow me to pick up product. Winner: benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzer, I can’t stand the coconut smell. 😳 Price: Obviously the PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzeris cheaper than the benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzer. The benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzeris $30.00 whereas the PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzeris $15.99. Winner: PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzer: duh. 🤷🏻♀️ Overall: PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzer: this is the better product overall. Price wise, product wise and packaging. However I do use benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzerthis more as a contour. Hope y’all enjoyed battle of the dupes pt. 6! Lmk in the comments below what dupes I should test next! Until tomorrow, Xoxo 💋 #CheriePartner #CherieCreator

5 Steps for Soft and Natural Everyday Makeup 💋
Most days I prefer to go light on makeup if I’m just going out to run a few errands, or doing something casual with friends and family. I have a few key products that I use to help elevate my natural features, ones that I think are the most essential to help us feel more put together. Below are a few of my go to products when I want a fast, easy, and natural makeup look for everyday. You can substitute any of the specific products I mention for your own, these are just what I prefer! 1. BROWS BROWS BROWS Anytime I have nicely groomed and defined brows I immediately feel more confident. There’s something about a nicely fluffed brow that just makes me happy. Not only that, I find that it helps frame the face and adds a bit more definition to the eye area. My current favorite brow routine uses only two products: The Anastasia Brow Wiz and the Anastasia Brow Gel. The Brow Wiz has a very precise pencil tip that helps with shaping my brows and filling them in with small defined strokes, and the gel helps with adding even more definition and shape while making sure they stay put all day. 2. Conceal and Powder Concealer is the most important step to this routine. I focus my concealer application to the center of my face - think under the eyes, around the nose, and chin area. This is where I have the most redness so I focus here and then follow up with some powder. We’re not using a foundation in this routine, but for me the concealer is enough to help even out the skin tone and blend in with the rest of our bare skin, giving a seamless natural look. I’ve been using the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and powder for years now, and they never fail me. 3. Rosy Cheeks I find that blush is a very important step after adding all that concealer and powder, which tends to flatten the face a bit. Blush will give your face a fresh look and help in defining facial structure. I don’t focus the product on the apples of my cheeks, I prefer to take it up on my cheekbones and then blend it to the apples just a bit, this defines my cheekbones more than if I only applied to the apples. Currently I’ve been loving the Wet n Wild Color Icon blush. 4. Bronzer This doesn’t serve the purpose you might expect in this particular routine. When I’m in a hurry out the door I don’t bother bronzing my face, but what I will do is put a bit of bronzer in the crease of my eyelids. It’s a quick and easy step that will define the eye and give it a bronzy look. I use the Benefit Hula Bronzer. 5. Maaaaascaraaaaa This speaks for itself. Without mascara my eyes just look incomplete lol. I’ve been loving the Buxom Lash Mascara, it gives my lashes ample volume and length, and opens up my eyes. Bonus (6.): Throw on some lip balm! 💋 I hope you’ve enjoyed taking a look at my quick and simple natural everyday makeup routine. Comment below on what your go-to everyday makeup products are, I’d love to know!

Easy (five minute!) makeup for ZOOM Meetings
Doing my makeup and feeling put-together is one of my favorite things, however I don’t always have the time or energy to be able to achieve a full-face beat every day. Soft and gentle glam, I use this look when I want to feel ~soft~ and glowy, but only spend minimal time on it. I start with NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer which I use all over my face, spot concealing redness of pimples, around my nose and lips, tip of my nose, and between my eyebrows. This brightens and evens your skin tone without a full face of foundation. You can use primer if you want, when I do I use a blurring primer like TATCHA - The Silk Canvas Protective Primer or beautyblender - Pore Minimizing Primer which smooth skin and even look good just on their own. I set with BECCA - Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder and then move on to my eyes. I use one eyeshadow palette with a few colors, two of my favorites are NATASHA DENONA - Mini Nude Eyeshadow Palette and EM COSMETICS - Limited Edition Divine Skies Eyeshadow Palette which have both mattes and shimmers. Important: they don’t patch! This makes blending a breeze. I put a neutral brown in my crease and outer V, then layer a dark brown in my outer v and smudge on my lower lash line. Adding shimmer is optional, but I usually do. For this I just use my finger and swipe on the lid. All powders for my face bronzer, blush, & highlight applied with one fluffy brush. I apply blush by pinching the powder brush in my fingers to elongate it to place product where I want— my fav is PATRICK TA - Monochrome Moment Velvet Blush which applies smoothly on all skin (prepped or not). I layer with benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzer in a 3 shape, and finish with whatever glowing highlight i feel like. In this image it’s OFRA - Nikkietutorials Everglow Highlighter Brow filling is optional, but brushing them up with a gel helps you look awake and youthful with little effort. Finish with mascara and a tinted lip balm or moisturizing lipstick like Glossier. - Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick or EM COSMETICS - EM Cosmetics Lip Cushion and you’re ready to go in less than ten!

there’s NO FOUNDATION in these pictures!
✨ what I use INSTEAD of FOUNDATION ✨ 🌊 I gave up foundation in the middle of college, partially out of laziness and partially because I decided my skin was okay without it. do i have clear skin? HECK NO. do i fake it well? HECK YEAH! 🌊 my skin type: oily and acne prone. My skincare routine is all anti acne products and oil reducing products, with a bunch of scar and dark spot reducing products as well. (pls see my profile for skin posts) 🌊 how i do it 1) prime Supergoop! - 100% Mineral Smooth & Poreless Matte Screen SPF 40 SPF is important and this one fills in pores and mattifies skin for smooth skin. while the product itself isn’t clear, there is no tint or white cast 2) conceal (the key to the look) SEPHORA COLLECTION - Clear and Cover Acne Treatment Cream Concealer with 2% Salicylic Acid this concealer contains the active ingredient of salicylic acid, which is anti acne and anti oil. I use this on active spots, scars, and any discoloration. Usually i have to hit darker spots more than once and take care to blend well. this tube is in the shade HONEY which is almost exactly my skin tone. 3) set Milk MAKEUP - Blur + Set Matte Loose Setting Powder kill all shine and pores with this tinted setting powder that blurs out my skin. i let my most oily parts bake for a little bit, like the areas next to my nose. it adds any additional coverage the concealer didn’t get 4) bronze benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzer i give myself fake cheekbones with a little dash of this cult classic below my cheeks. always take care to blend super well! 5) brows GRANDE COSMETICS - Grandebrow-Fill Volumizing Brow Gel With Fibers & Peptides this takes and sets my brows into place while helping growth benefit - Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel for easy color 6) lashes LANCÔME - CILS BOOSTER XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base protects your eyelashes so they can grow longer, add vitamins. Makes a great face to put mascara on COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Volume Waterproof Mascara as someone with short eyelashes, I love this mascara because it adds volume and curl
