It's been a little over two weeks since Chloe Bailey, aka Chlöe, snatched our wigs and released her debut solo single, "Have Mercy." From the music and visuals, to the way she and her sister Halle support each other, we can't get enough. And this week, our good sis taught us a couple more things when she appeared on Vogue's Beauty Secrets. There, she gave us all the details to what she calls "Glowy Chlöe," her on-the-go everyday skincare and makeup look.
In the video, she detailed her routine, products, and beauty secrets. Now, we know that sometimes watching makeup tutorials can be kind of overwhelming, so we've recapped it all so you can give it a try.
Let's start with skincare.
Although her face was already clean she used Neutrogena's Skin Balancing Micellar Cleansing Cloths to remove any unseen residue.
Then, she massaged her face with a roller and Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Serum to help her "baby cheeks" transform into the "snatched" look she desires. She gives Vogue an insider tip, saying:
"You always wanna go up [regarding the direction of the face roller]. Because we don't want sagging skin ladies."
Also, when she has a bit of extra time or she is getting glammed up, Chlöe takes a few moments to hold ice cubes under her eyes. This can help reduce puffiness and swelling. With a smile, she says:
"It's like a little subtle difference but I notice it and I feel so much better and confident."
Finally, she applies sunscreen and rosewater spray by Mario Badescu. And just like that, the skin is glowing and moisturized. She tells Vogue,
"I really love not overcomplicating my skincare routine because I have very sensitive skin. If I do too much I break out, if I'm stressed, I break out. So, I like to keep it to a minimum."
Same sis, same.
"I think it's really important to have time for yourself, where you take care of yourself and your skin and your body. And as I'm 23 right now I'm learning that it is OK to not work so much and take that time into me."
Now, onto makeup.
She starts the next part of her routine with a really important element, brows. With an Anastasia Beverly Hills pencil and a Benefit pencil, she lightly fills them in, using concealer and brow gel to perfect the shape.
Staying in the same area, she lines her eyes with a brown (to stand out more) eye pencil by Pat McGrath, before covering her face in Fenty Skin Tint, a product she seems to prefer over foundation.
Next, the "Have Mercy" singer gets real friendly with the concealer. She uses it under her eyes, above her lip, and the bridge of her nose with the help of her Beauty Blender and a spritz of rosewater to blend it out.
Later, she moves to the contour, which is still Fenty, by the way!
And Chlöe sets it with a powder bronzer before moving on to blush, highlighter, and lips. She says:
"I love to use the same blush and bronzer on my eyes and cheeks, especially when I travel and I don't have space to pack too much makeup."
Finally, we move on to the part I was most interested in, because her lip gloss is always poppin', and apparently that's on purpose. She says:
"My favorite part is the lips, gotta have a nice juicy kissable lip. I'm learning to do a matte lip instead of a gloss because I like to kiss the mic a lot when I sing."
To get the ideal lip, she uses a lip scrub, cherry lip balm by Dior, a KKW lip pencil, and Fenty lip gloss. She finishes the look by blending it with translucent powder and more sunscreen of course.
Almost done, but we can't finish until we wrap our hair.
Now, you might have thought that was the last step, but as we know Chlöe is the full package. And that means she takes care of everything, and that includes her hair. Before finishing her routine, she adds the final touches to her hair by using Pattern Argan Oil.
"It's pretty simple and easy and I think that's why I really love having locs. It [the color] feels like my alter ego in a way and I feel like it brings out my skin."
After watching this video, there were definitely a few products I wanted to buy and techniques I wanted to try! To watch the full video and do the same, check it out here.

How Content Creators Hey Fran Hey And Shameless Maya Embraced The Pivot
This article is in partnership with Meta Elevate.
If you’ve been on the internet at all within the past decade, chances are the names Hey Fran Hey and Shameless Maya (aka Maya Washington) have come across your screen. These content creators have touched every platform on the web, spreading joy to help women everywhere live their best lives. From Fran’s healing natural remedies to Maya’s words of wisdom, both of these content creators have built a loyal following by sharing honest, useful, and vulnerable content. But in search of a life that lends to more creativity, freedom, and space, these digital mavens have moved from their bustling big cities (New York City and Los Angeles respectively) to more remote locations, taking their popular digital brands with them.
Content Creators Hey Fran Hey and Maya Washington Talk "Embracing The Pivot"www.youtube.com
In partnership with Meta Elevate — an online learning platform that provides Black, Hispanic, and Latinx-owned businesses access to 1:1 mentoring, digital skills training, and community — xoNecole teamed up with Franscheska Medina and Maya Washington on IG live recently for a candid conversation about how they’ve embraced the pivot by changing their surroundings to ultimately bring out the best in themselves and their work. Fran, a New York City native, moved from the Big Apple to Portland, Oregon a year ago. Feeling overstimulated by the hustle and bustle of city life, Fran headed to the Pacific Northwest in search of a more easeful life.
Her cross-country move is the backdrop for her new campaign with Meta Elevate— a perfectly-timed commercial that shows how you can level up from wherever you land with the support of free resources like Meta Elevate. Similarly, Maya packed up her life in Los Angeles and moved to Sweden, where she now resides with her husband and adorable daughter. Maya’s life is much more rural and farm-like than it had been in California, but she is thriving in this peaceful new setting while finding her groove as a new mom.
While Maya is steadily building and growing her digital brand as a self-proclaimed “mom coming out of early retirement,” Fran is redefining her own professional grind. “It’s been a year since I moved from New York City to Portland, Oregon,” says Fran. “I think the season I’m in is figuring out how to stay successful while also slowing down.” A slower-paced life has unlocked so many creative possibilities and opportunities for these ladies, and our conversation with them is a well-needed reminder that your success is not tied to your location…especially with the internet at your fingertips. Tapping into a community like Meta Elevate can help Black, Hispanic, and Latinx entrepreneurs and content creators stay connected to like minds and educated on new digital skills and tools that can help scale their businesses.
During a beautiful moment in the conversation, Fran gives Maya her flowers for being an innovator in the digital space. Back when “influencing” was in its infancy and creators were just trying to find their way, Fran says Maya was way ahead of her time. “I give Maya credit for being one of the pioneers in the digital space,” Fran said. “Maya is a one-person machine, and I always tell her she really changed the game on what ads, campaigns, and videos, in general, should look like.”
When asked what advice she’d give content creators, Maya says the key is having faith even when you don’t see the results just yet. “It’s so easy to look at what is, despite you pouring your heart into this thing that may not be giving you the returns that you thought,” she says. “Still operate from a place of love and authenticity. Have faith and do the work. A lot of people are positive thinkers, but that’s the thinking part. You also have to put your faith into work and do the work.”
Fran ultimately encourages content creators and budding entrepreneurs to take full advantage of Meta Elevate’s vast offerings to educate themselves on how to build and grow their businesses online. “It took me ten years to get to the point where I’m making ads at this level,” she says. “I didn’t have those resources in 2010. I love the partnership with Meta Elevate because they’re providing these resources for free. I just think of the people that wouldn’t be able to afford that education and information otherwise. So to amplify a company like this just feels right.”

Exclusive: 'Praise This' Producer Will Packer And Director Tina Gordon Pulls For Non-Traditional Audiences With Film
Praise This has a uber-talented cast helmed by the multi-hyphenate Chloe Bailey. But before the cast, filming, and other things came to play, it started out as a vision from executive producer Will Packer and director Tina Gordon. In our exclusive interview with the visionaries, Will shares that when he received the screenplay, he knew that Tina would be the perfect person to make the script come to life.
"She and I were so aligned in terms of the mission of this movie. We said that we wanted to make a movie that if you were [a] traditional, staunch, church type of person who believes that church should fit into a box, that we were gonna blow that out. That this wasn't the movie for you," Will says. "We wanted to make a movie that was for that non-traditional audience that is open to a church movie. You get that audience in by mashing up gospel with Drake, and with Beyoncé, with Cardi [B]. That's how you do that, and so you come in for the music, and you stay for a powerful story; Tina understood that."
He continues, "And so when I thought about who could helm this, the project was originally pitched to me by an amazing young executive named Antoine Jenkins, and I knew I wanted to do this praise movie in this world, Tina was the right one. I was really hoping she would say yes, and when she did, we were off to the races."

Executive Producer Will Packer Shares How Film Appeals To All Walks of Life
Tina, who directed films like Little, expresses her excitement about working on the Peacock film.
"Will sent me the script, and I had been like circling doing a musical. I hadn't really done something music-driven since Drumline, and so I was excited about the idea of showing gospel choirs, praise teams, specifically 'cause I thought that it would just be a really, just new facet of our culture to show," Tina explains. "And once I kinda nailed down the personalities of the praise teams and how they would be just a little funny, a little bit of a wink and a nod to church culture, I kinda got it, and I was ready to go."
Tina hopes audiences are surprised and inspired by Praise This and wants them to walk away feeling uplifted.
