So to state the obvious, I went a little lip balm crazy. Main reason is, due to my medical issue causing me to no longer be able to enjoy the foods I love, these lip balms help to cure my horrible cravings that I get. I’m excited to finally have the last 6 velvetines from LC, this means that I now own every single lip product (velvetines, lipsticks, and lip glosses) that they sell. It has taken years to build up my collection but I’m happy to finally own them all. And I promise to do a long dupe list for anyone who doesn’t care for the brand or who can’t afford it (and please do not give me hate for liking and buying from the brand, I understand what’s being said online, I have been a customer for years and have never had a bad experience. plus the velvetines were an early birthday gift from my dad <3 ). I am also happy to have the sugar pop palette in my possession, anything with french macarons on it, I have to have it! I will be doing reviews on some of these products for you all in the future. Can’t wait to put all these products on my face :D
My makeup yesterday. We had a red and black theme at work and this is the look I came up with. I used sugarpill, lime crime, and inglot for the eyes, tarte and nyx for the cheeks, and lime crime’s velvetines in the shades red velvet and black velvet for the lips
hii, do you have any tips/a guide on how to look like cheryl? like her hair and how to do her makeup? thank you in advance!
I’m not sure if you wanted a full tutorial like how I did for Betty but here are some Cheryl hair and makeup basics with exact products listed!
Directing you to this post, you can find a few makeup items used on her, each one strictly Covergirl based. Cheryl’s makeup ranges from a bold, smokey eye look which is never without her signature red lip to a natural look that can be worn with or without the red lip. For a natural eye, I would stick to a nude-ish color across your eyes with a light brown blended into the crease to bring in definition. Within the palette listed, you can create both eyeshadow looks.
According to a Teen Vogue article, Cheryl also uses Lime Crime’s Matte Velvetine in Red Velvet. When a poutier lip is desired, a layer of Nivea chapstick is used. Another color used on Cheryl is the Lime Crime Matte Velvetine in Riot (Red-brown) or MAC’s Spice Lip liner. For the lip liner, the lips are outlined and filled lightly before adding a layer of gloss on top for a natural look.
She never tends to have a heap of blush or bronzer on but contour is added to her makeup routine. Cheryl also has long, volumed lashes so if you don’t have long lashes naturally, I recommend buying a pair of natural seeming ones (nothing dramatic!!)
Cheryl’s hair is always down, never up in a ponytail unless cheerleading is involved.
Her hair ranges from the three basic styles, curls, waves, and straight. Straightening hair is a pretty basic concept so I won’t go into depth about that but with her curls, they range from loose, wavy seeming curls to a tad tighter ones. Use a 1.75" curling iron to achieve large, loose waves, 1.25" for a mixture of wavy and curly, and a 1.5" for bouncy seeming curls with volume.
My makeup yesterday. Went to a goth/deathrock event with my bestie wherbeckiv last night and had an awesome time. Used sugarpill and an inglot gel liner for the eyes, tarte and nyx for the cheeks, and lime crime’s red velvet for the lips
Hi! I've been sugaring for a little over a month now, and I've just now snagged a legit SD. I'm meeting with him in 3 weeks. Our initial meeting we're going shopping. I get $500 plus a Visa with a "healthy amount" on it to shop with. I was wondering if you could give me some tips on makeup essentials? I'm mostly clueless in that department. The stores near me are ULTA, & Belk (Bobbi Brown & MAC are my faves in there) but like I said idk. Help? What should I get?
Okay so this is going to be involved because I LOVE makeup.
So my main makeup essentials would be:
Brow Pencil and Mascara
Neutal Eyeshadow palette
Nude/My lips but better Lipstick
Foundation/Concealer: So my current favorite foundation in the NARS luminous all day liquid. I love it. I pair it with the NARS pressed translucent powder. Gives me a lovely dewy look that really does last all day and doesn’t look like foundation. I use Makeup Forever full coverage concealer for my under eye circles and smaller blemishes. I like it because it doesn’t crease under my eyes. For big zits, which I rarely get but sometimes occur when I’m dumb and sleep in my makeup, I use the original Bare Minerals foundation on dense brush, then blend it out. I think it just looks better than liquid concealer on larger blemishes. Other suggestions: Bare Minerals Bare Skin (doesn’t come in my shade but I’ve heard great things), Makeup Forever HD, Makeup Forever Matte Velvet (if you prefer a matte foundation), MAC Pro longwear Concealer.
Highlight/Contour/Blush: For this I use a Sleek Makeup trio. I bought my in London so I think you can only find it online in the US. It has a shimmery blush and highlight, and a matte bronzer/contour shade. I have that and a NARS trio and the shades are basically identical, except the NARS bronzer is shimmery, so you can’t contour with it. Save your money and buy the Sleek one. I don’t contour much because I think it makes my face look weird and disproportionate? But I think the color I have may just be too warm for me, but I’m very fair so it would likely work for most people. The key is a MATTE shade for contouring. I honestly wouldn’t waste money on a 6 piece contouring/highlighting palette, because realistically you’ll only use like 2-3 of the shades. Honestly, matte powder foundation in a shade 2-3 darker than your skin with the same undertone is probably your best bet, then just find a nice highlight. I like NARS, Sleek, and Becca highlighters. I don’t wear much blush, and only own NARS orgasm and the Sleek Dupe, and never wear them. I also don’t wear bronzer, but again I am VERY FAIR. So I think blush and bronzer just don’t suit me, but they do look nice on most people. NARS blushes and bronzer are regarded as the best, but play around with it before committing to a $20 blush.
Eye Makeup: Okay so despite owning all of the Naked Palettes, I must say I do think they’re over hyped and don’t have enough matte shade for me to recommend to a beginner. I’d recommend the Lorac Pro, which has some lovely neutrals in both mattes and shimmers, so that’s a great place for you to start. Honestly, just watch a lot of YouTube videos on how to do different eye makeup looks and then mess around with it. Once you learn a few basic techniques, you can pretty much do any look you want. For eyeliner, I’ve mostly been using eyeshadow on a wet eyeshadow brush recently and I’ve been really liking it. I do cat eyes always, and it’s a practice make perfect thing but mess around with different types of brushes and products to find what works for you. One tip is to start on the eye you’re WORSE at. Then it’s easier to match the wing on your good eye. Beyond wet eye shadow I like Tarte’s gel eyeliner a lot. Mine opened up in my makeup case and dried out, which I’m fairly bummed about. And Urban Decay’s pencil liners are great for tight lining, but their gel eyeliner is awful don’t waste you money. And TBH I haven’t really liked any high end mascaras I’ve tried. Or at least not enough to justify the price. Drug store mascaras are the bomb. I always use waterproof and Maybelline is my favorite brand for mascara, but I’ve heard good things about Covergirl as well.
Brows: Tweezerman tweezers are the only tweezers. I use MAC brow pencil because Fling is the only shade I’ve found that works for very light blonde hair, but the pencil is great in terms of quality as well. Then I use Benefit Gimme Brow to keep my brows in place. My brows are shaped nicely and are thick naturally, so I don’t do much beside tweeze the stray hairs and fill them in slightly to make them more prominent, but you may need to do more depending on your brows’ state. There are plenty of Youtube Videos on how to do eyebrows.
Lips: I don’t wear a ton of lipstick, but I like MAC Brave as a nude/my lips but better shade and NARS Cruella as a red, and honestly, as far as basics go thats all you need. For more dramatic colors, I have a bunch of Lime Crime Velvetines, but that company is very problematique, so I’ll let you do your own research into the topic. I’ll let you decide for yourself if lip liner is something you want to use, I do sometimes and I don’t really care much about it. I don’t wear lip gloss since it makes my mouth look weird in my opinion, so I can’t really recommend any. Also Elizabeth Arden 8 hour lip treatment (the one in the metal tin) is amazing and will make your lips the softest.
Brushes: I love my Sigma and Tarte brushes. I have the Sigma basics set which is $200 I think? But totally worth it. I also love the flat top Kabuki for foundation. I have the Tarte big fluffy foundation brush and the double ended concealer one and both are lovely. Brushes are for sure worth the investment.
Honestly, just watch a lot of makeup Youtube videos to learn any techniques or look up product reviews. Like I said, once you figure out a few very basic techniques, the whole world opens up and you can do anything with makeup.
