A good go to for bronzer/contour
NYX - Concealer Jar This was my first time using a cream concealer. I goes on top of foundation easily and blends fairly well. I enjoy the fact that with this type of concealer you build up its intensity. I purchased mine off of Amazon for about $6-$7. I bought mine in the shade expresso. Hopefully this shade isn’t too gray looking.
Quick & Easy Natural Glowing Skin Makeup
Summer is coming for those of us in the Southern Hemisphere, and you’ll likely want to spend it looking like a natural glowing goddess. Fortunately, you can achieve this look quickly and easily with just a couple of drugstore products. Complexion: 👸🏻 I used the discontinued Covergirl Outlast Stay Luminous foundation in shade 810 Classic Ivory. It’s medium-coverage, natural finish, lasts well and has a touch of dew that makes dry skin practically sing. I concealed using REVOLUTION - Conceal & Define Infinite XL Concealer in shade C1, a creamy concealer with great coverage. On top of the fresh foundation, I applied some nude by nature - Touch of Glow Highlighter Stick in shade Bronze to the back of my hand, and used my fingers to dab it onto my cheeks, starting near my ear and moving toward the apple of my cheek. This formula is a bit gritty and can get clumpy, but spreads well enough with the fingers and lasts fairly well. Alternatively, you could use any drugstore bronzer with a bit of shimmer in it. This adds extra glow to the cheeks! Apply some of the nude by nature - Touch of Glow Highlighter Stick in Champagne to the back of the hand, and dab on the high points of the face for added shine. Lightly set the face with translucent powder, focusing on the under eyes, and lightly disputing over the cheeks and forehead. The less, the better, so you don’t remove too much dew! I strengthened my bronzer slightly with the Revlon Sculpt & Highlight Contour Kit, using the bronzer shade to set and deepen the bronzer on my cheeks, and define my jaw. Finally, I used a touch of Juvia's PLACE - The Saharan Blush Palette shade Tau to add some colour to the apples of my cheeks. I love this palette - look at my profile to see my full review! Pro Tip for Enhanced Natural Glow: ✨ You can add an extra dewy glow to your face without sacrificing powder and staying power, by lightly dragging your cheekbone highlighter down to the corner of your mouth. This simple addition pulls the highlighter across the apples of your cheeks to create a natural glistening effect that simulates dewy skin! In my look, I used some “Ringlight” from the MORPHE - The James Charles Palette to add even more glow to the Champagne stick. Enhancing the Eyes: 👀 Pick up some of the shimmery bronzer and swipe it over the entire eyelid, blending it out slightly. This is a quick way to add definition without spending a lot of time on your look. Take a touch of black or dark brown eyeshadow on a flat eyeliner brush and use it to fill in the outer half of the upper lash line. This adds definition to your eyes and makes the lashes appear thicker, without becoming heavy. Finish off with a touch of your favourite mascara, Mine was MAYBELLINE - The Falsies Waterproof Mascara

My top base products ✨
I like my skin to look like skin even when doing full makeup, so I always reach for products that will give me that perfected, flawless base but aren’t heavy or make me feel like I’m wearing a mask. These are my favorite products to achieve just that! e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer I recently started using this and wow!! I love it, it blurs pores and fine lines beautifully but still leaves a natural finish and isn’t too matte, just perfect. DIOR - Forever Skin Correct Concealer I’ve talked about this concealer time and time again, I’m just obsessed with it. It’s so creamy but never looks dry and the coverage is just right. I wear the shade 1W and it’s a perfect match for me. Glossier. - Wowder Weightless Finishing Powder I’ve been using wowder for a couple of years and it’s nice! It gets rid of oiliness but still leaves a radian finish on the skin. ohii - Skin Quench Spray Serum I always spray my face with this when I’m using powder because it adds a beautiful glow to the skin and takes away the powdery finish. I love it. #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
YVES SAINT LAURENT-All Hours Concealer
Loved concealers ✨✨
I don’t use concealers all the time but when I do I use one of my 4 trusty concealers. I have 2 affordable and 2 pricey ones. Glossier stretch concealer in the shade G11: when I want a lightweight concealer I always pick this one. It’s a light to light medium coverage. It’s great for a no makeup makeup look. It blends easily and I use my fingers. It’s pretty hydrating as well so if you have oily under eyes and want to try this then you’d need to set it with powder. This is $18 on glossiers website. Glossier. - Stretch Concealer Wet n wild photo focus concealer in the shade light ivory: this is about medium coverage. It stays put all day and it’s pretty creamy. I find it’s best to use this with a sponge instead of my fingers. I’ve always found that this is a great dupe for the nars creamy concealer. This varies in price from $3.50-$5.00 it’s still very affordable. wet n wild - Photo Focus Concealer NARS Radiant creamy concealer in the shade vanilla: this is a really great product. Medium coverage and best with a sponge for me. It conceals great without looking like I’ve applied too much. It hides my dark circles and veiny areas on my face. Great product that I’d recommend. Really pricy $30. NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer Elf 16 hr camo concealer in the shade fair rose: now this is a full coverage concealer. I only need a tiny amount of this. I only use this for special events or if I want slightly more coverage. It blends really nicely. It’s full coverage without it being super thick and I love that. Definitely great that it’s on the affordable side. $6 e.l.f. - 16HR Camo Concealer

Easy Glam With Only 5 Products!
I love a good low maintenance look that packs a punch and takes less than 15 minutes to apply! I only used 5 products for this look. First, I applied NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer To my under eye, lids, and a few blemishes on my forehead. I blend it all out with my e.l.f. - Blending Sponge Duo I like this sponge, it’s soft and not so pointy at the end that I poke myself in the eye. Next, I apply just a touch of BECCA - Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Moonstone to my forehead with a fan brush, and then use a large eyeshadow brush to sweep it all over my eye. Then I use the tarte - Sugar Rush Sparkler Shadow Stick in Rose Gold from lash line to crease. I blend it out a teeny bit with my finger. It’s a good shadow stick and the sparkle applies nice and thick, but it’s tough to blend and it does get a little messy. Then I swiped on a little wing with FENTY BEAUTY - Flyliner Longwear Liquid Eyeliner and 2 layers of NARS - Climax Mascara and I was out the door! (Okay fine, I did my eyebrows earlier for a Zoom call with ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel but I didn’t do it for this look so I’m not counting it!) As you can see, I suck at putting on eyeliner 😣 I don’t have a very steady hand. Any tips? I’d appreciate it!
