HOW I CONTOUR & HIGHLIGHT MY NOSE
HOW I CONTOUR & HIGHLIGHT MY NOSE
I love using makeup to transform my features into what I think best suits my face. I like to contour my nose to appear slimmer and a tad bit shorter. I usually use powders to contour, but when I really want to make a difference, I will used liquid products as well. Photo 1: no nose contour/highlight Photo 2: liquid contour/highlight Photo 3: powder contour/highlight Photo 4: finished results Products used & how: Liquid contour- When contouring, you want to stick to shades that are cool-toned (no orange-y). You can use concealers, contour sticks, or even foundations. I chose to use MILANI - Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer . I dabbed the product on with a small stippling brush and blended it out well with a small blending brush. I chose to apply this product down the sides of my nose and “circling” the tip of my nose. Liquid highlight- with your highlighter shade you want to choose something much lighter for contrast and to really make the shadows stand out. I chose Too Faced - Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Concealer and applied it with a small precision eyeliner brush. I blended out the product with a small blending brush. I applied this product down the bridge of my nose and on the tip of my nose. Powder contour- with powder contour, you want to stick to cool toned shades as well. This step is too set your liquid products you just used. I chose to use the cool toned shade in smashbox - Step-By-Step Contour Kit . I blended it out with a small blending brush. Powder highlight-I used MAC - MAC x Patrickstarrr Setting Powder on the outer edges of the nose and applied it with a beauty sponge. This created the illusion of a slimmer nose. I also applied MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Highlight Face Powder down the center of my nose and on the tip. This also creates the same illusion. These are the products and techniques that work well for my nose. Also, I did break my nose on the left side so it is slightly crooked but I have a hard time correcting the breakage. (I have a light medium- skin tone for reference) #CherieCreator

I’m going to be honest. I avoid the sun at all costs and I am too lazy to self tan, but I really really like the look of glowy skin in the summer. I can’t help it. In my quest for the perfect glow, I stumbled upon a few shimmer oils but was blown away by the prices. $59 for 3 oz of body oil? No thanks... The thing is, I do use body oil daily. I like to put it on over my moisturizer (CeraVe moisturizing cream) to lock it in, but I also like that it gives a little sheen to my skin. Plus the scent is amazing. That’s when I got to thinking, why not make my own shimmer oil? Using stuff I already had, I was able to whip this up in 10 minutes and the result is a subtle glow and shine that lasts all day. Here’s how to do it: 1. Grab a body oil of your choice. I like Palmer’s because the scent is sweet and it absorbs really well into the skin. An oil works better than a lotion because it has a subtle glaze-y glow to it already. Plus you don’t have to break the bank. Here are some good ones: PALMER'S - Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil Neutrogena - Body Oil Bio-Oil - Multiuse Skincare Oil 2. Grab a powdered highlighter (pressed or loose, cream will not work) that blends well with your skin tone. Test it on your arm to make sure it blends to a slight glimmer without any light or dark cast to it. The more translucent the better. I used doucce pressed highlighter in “solstice” because I had it laying around. If your highlighter is pressed, use a spoon to remove it from its container and stir until it’s broken up. Here are some ones I like: doucce - Freematic Highlighter Mono wet n wild - MegaGlo Loose Highlighting Powder NYX - Shimmer Down Pigment 3. Using a funnel (or a piece of paper wrapped into a cone), combine about 1/2tsp of powdered highlighter to your body oil, close and shake. Add more for a more dramatic effect, up to 1tsp of highlighter. 4. Apply daily over moisturizer or directly to skin! And that’s it! Go get your glow on. -XOK

Liquid Highlighters for Every Purpose
Liquid Highlighters for Every Purpose
I’ve found I favor liquid formulations over powder ones, so here are my thoughts on a few liquid highlighters: BECCA - Ignite Liquified Light Face & Body Highlighter is SUPER concentrated. It’s a beautiful bright gold and provides coverage... which, I don’t prefer for my face. Even the smallest drop applied on the face makes you beam like the sun. However, I have found this is fantastic to apply to collar bones or chest for an extra pop! Rare Beauty - Positive Light Liquid Luminizer Highlight I’m a huge fan of the packaging both aesthetically and functionally. I got the Enchant shade which has a slightly pink hue and is perfect for a bare face or to use as a simplified blush+highlighter. I docked a star because the formulation does not dry completely, and therefore the wear is somewhat compromised. I tend to reach for this in lazy days when I don’t want many steps and when I am not planning to wear a mask, as it smudges some. flesh - Ripe Flesh Glisten Drops I have this shade in Aura, and it is great for a non-glittery, smooth, “glass skin” look. I don’t prefer this applicator, as the dropper can supply an inconsistent amount of product but this stuff dries down for a long wear glow that lasts through mask wearing. Glossier. - Niteshine Highlighter Concentrate this was my liquid highlighter first love. The lightest shade of this compared to the Flesh product is more champagne and gives more color. This also dries down to offer long wear. I feel similarly about this and the Flesh product, just feel they offer different shades to play with.

💖 6 Ways: You’re MORE ATTRACTIVE than you might think
💖 6 Ways: You’re MORE ATTRACTIVE than you might think
Do you really know how to put on your makeup? Seriously, most girls are just having fun with their cosmetic stuff, and I used to be one of them lol. Having learned a lot from both Youtube tutorials and makeup magazines, I realize that there're some mistakes that over 90% of beginners will make. Check out the list below: Use a dry beauty blender Use a dry beauty blender that can make it hard to blend your foundation and sinks in all your cosmetic products, which is not cost-worthy lol. A better and money-saving way to do that is to use a wet one while applying. By doing so, you can create a flawless base makeup effortlessly. Do your makeup in a bathroom I bet most of you like to do your makeup in your bathroom with your favorite songs on, right? However, the artificial light in the bathroom is often not satisfying and can make your makeup go sideways, especially when it comes to applying your highlighters or blushes. Therefore, it's suggested to do your makeup by the window side with the natural light.  Rub your foundation & concealer Hey, don't be so rude to your face lady! Instead of rubbing the foundation or concealer, you need to tap them gently into your face. As for applying your foundation, start with the middle of your cheek, then go in circles. Also, don't forget to go a little bit lower on your neck and your ears for a natural-looking finish. For concealers, you'd also stick to the gentle tabbing and apply less every time.  Apply thick layers of color correctors I know lots of YouTubers are obsessed with wearing lots of color correctors in their makeup tutorials, and I guess it's mainly for fun, but the fact is that not everyone needs the color correctors unless you have serious discoloration! The basic rule for base makeup is "LESS IS MORE"! Applying unneeded or too thick layers of color correctors will only make it harder to apply foundation, which just makes things tricky! Moreover, apply your color correctors with brushes instead of fingers because these correctors are often very pigmented and you don't want to get too much of them on your fingertips at one time. Draw lines on the entire brow No kidding! Tracing heavy lines on your entire brow shape usually ends up with unnatural and cartoon-ish brows. The quick fixing way is to draw a harsh stroke, blend with your finger, use an eyebrow brush, and use small strokes on the bottom of your brow and brush upwards. The soft strokes can create a fuller look without going overboard, and a brush makes it easier to blend.  Apply lipstick to naked lips Okay, I know how tempting it is to do a few swipes after a meal or your coffee break, but that's a big mistake if you want your lipstick color last long and evenly without smearing drying out your lips. Only prep your lips with a lip primer, a lip plumper or even a lightweight face moisturizer will make a huge difference! By adding a little bit of moisture, your lipstick is more likely to stay longer and maintain a smooth, plump and even finish. I've learned a lot from Ali Andreea, the makeup influencer on Youtube, and I highly recommend anyone who wants to learn more about makeup to subscribe to her channel!  What are your makeup tips? Eager to see your fantastic ideas! Love you lots xxx!

Reverse Nose Contour 🤔
Reverse Nose Contour 🤔
On Tik Tok, under the #beautyhacks a user named @/georgieclarke had a hack for nose contouring, but in an unique way. I wanted to try this to see if it worked! . Materials needed: setting powder, a triangle sponge, warm toned-blush, highlighter, and bronzer. . Accomplishes: a contoured nose, but without the hard steps it typically involves. . Steps: first, use the triangle sponge to put setting powder down the sides of the nose, brush the warm-toned blush on the center of the nose nose, then use a brush to dust the setting powder off and blend the blush so there aren’t harsh lines, dust highlighter on the bridge of nose and tip, then slightly bronze the septum (the dividing piece of the nostrils, not sure what to call it 😂). . Does it work? I used the KVD Setting Powder and the Smashbox Ablaze Face Palette (for the blush, highlighter, and contour). I used the steps I stated above with the products I just mentioned to try this tip out (the last pic is the whole final look). I had a little bit of a difficult time getting a straight line with the triangle beauty sponge, maybe I’m just not used to using it. My blush was also a little more pigmented than I thought, so I really had to blend to not look like I had a sunburnt nose lol. It was pretty easy to follow the steps though and you don’t need many materials, basically things that you probably already own. For me, this was a lot easier than trying to contour my nose with bronzer! This will definitely be easier once I really get the hang of it. I would definitely recommend this, especially to those that find typical nose contour challenging or want a quick way to get ready in the morning! ✅
