Beauty Book

This 32-page magazine is a guide to my all-time favorite beauty products.


I am so excited to share my review of Pearl Beauty with you — I know you’ll love the brand as much as I do!

I have followed Elanna Pecherle for years, and her YouTube videos essentially taught me how to do makeup as a teen. Her beauty brand, guided by the philosophy of “minimal with impact,” could not resonate more with me.

The Core Four Collection* includes the Multi-purpose Lip and Face Sticks in four shades:
+ Put Together: a nude rose with neutral undertones (my personal favorite)
+ Girl Next Door: a bright baby pink with cool undertones
+ Easy Going: a muted peach with warm undertones
+ Real Depth: a deep rosy tan with neutral undertones 

Top to Bottom: Real Depth, Easy Going, Put Together, Girl Next Door

As a neutral-lover, bright pink and coral blushes can sometimes be intimidating, but these colors melt into the skin flawlessly and flatter any skin tone. I genuinely reach for all four.

The formula is one of my favorites. These are somewhat sheer but very buildable, and they blend like a dream. I love that they have a dewy, skin-like finish.

They can be used on the cheeks, eyes, and lips, so they’re extra versatile. If you’re into the monochromatic look, these are must-haves for that reason.

They have truly become my go-to for an elevated, everyday look!

Finally, The One Multi-purpose Face Brush* is my new holy grail tool for blending cream cheek products. It has the softest synthetic bristles ever, and the perfect angle for adding definition to the cheeks. 

Which shade would you pick?
