Hi beautiful people!!! Here I am trying to create a balance between my sleep and this real life! You will have everything you would want here, from Fashion to Movies and Books Reviews to Makeup to DIY's, Food and Travel. Let's get on this journey together and see what we can learn from each other.
NARS is one of the amazing makeup brand that has came up with the creamiest formulation of products and I just love their blushes. they are creamy, long lasting and they just do wonders.
For blushes, my taste differs from time to time. sometimes I feel like going all pink and red and there are other days where I just want a subtle touch of color to bring life to my face.
This is a kind of blush which can be used occasionally, according to the time and requirement. The formulae is build-able with a slight glitter to it which works perfectly for me since I love a great glitter on my face.
You see the glamorous pink shade of amazing-ness. That is just why I love it.
tell me your favourite blush and why you like it?!
hello my wonderful beings. I have had the Nude Palette since the launch but I can not just review a product, sing it once or twice. I have used it since then and now I can easily talk about what I feel about the colours and pigments and how they wear in a daily use.
So yet again, Huda beauty has came up with one really promising and a great palette that have a combination of nudes and shimmers and pinks. The colours blend in really well and all the transitioning shades are just right on point. The palette consists of 18 colours that work wonders.
This palette has 11 mattes, 5 exotic shimmers and 2 glitters to fill your need of any day look. Here are some swatches from the palette.
The colours goes very well for all skin types. For the glitters in the palette, EXCITE & INFATUATED ,they can’t be applied really well with a brush due to their consistency and texture. They are real glitter shades inside the palette, you should apply the shadows with either your bare fingers or by applying glue under-neath, for them to stay on easily and for longer.
My favourites in the palette will be the 5 creamy shimmers. CRAVE, FANTASY, DAY DREAM, KINKY AND CHARMED, they apply so well with fingers and they are metallic and just right on point to apply on the lid to create a great look. These work so well for the inner corners as well to bring an amazing pop of color. CRAVE works really well for your eye-brow highlight just to be a little EXTRA.
These colours are really well for anytime’s look you want to go for. Do let me know what you guys think about it and how the palette has been treating you.
Nudes are trendy, high in fashion and loved by majority. Isn’t!!!
Oh okay, wait before you get to think about something, anything else let me clear your mind by telling you all, that I am talking about Nude makeup trend that is loved by majority of females from any career, field or age.
Of course nothing beats the red bold lips but Nude gives the clean, confident in your skin type of look, which is talked by almost all beauty gurus all over internet and Youtube. and they are popularised for a reason as they give a natural makeup look more sophisticated.
Now I know a lot of females, including my mom thinks that Nude is not something anyone needs as they are more likely to just match your tone and mean nothing, but that’s something to do with their age and generation.
Every female needs a Nude color in their makeup bags. Here are few reasons why;
Its classy and Trendy,
You can use it on days you don’t wanna go full glam.
You can wear it on days you wanna go full glam, because with black Smokey eyes, nude lips go perfectly without over doing it.
it gives the gradient effect of natural yet there is something that people see and gives them a beautiful effect of you.
Some pretty nudes I have and they are recommended and approved.
Here are some Swatches;
I don’t take any of that as a joke,
These are some of my favourite NYX Nudes, for me nudes are MY color. they go with all my moods and days.
Anastasia also have a wide variety of nudes that I adore very much but the only problem is that they don’t last very long but the shades are pretty and I wear them non-the-less.
This New Fenty Beauty lip gloss is my new absolute favourite. It’s my current obsession and I wear it over all my shades. It does look pretty without any other colour but wearing it over any lip colour is just beautiful, it has right amount of glitter and gloss that looks and wears just perfectly. It has a sticky consistency and it smells divine.
The one’s I have mentioned here are:
For real Nudes your best options are;
MEDORA: Iced Coffee
NYX: Tres Leches
NYX: Abu Dhabi
KAT VON D: Bow N Arrow
M.A.C: Kinda Sexy AB3
For the peachy pink Nude look;
ROGUE EDITION: Velvet 07
KAT VON D: Ophelia
LIQUID Rebel Rose
Hello to every amazing person reading this. I am going to talk about another skincare product, since everyone has some skin issues and every one continuously looking for products that can provide the best results and clear skin that everyone dreamt of.
Mario Badescu is one brand really hyped up for providing the fine skin results in minimum amount of time and leave your skin feeling splendid and all tv-like.
I saw it while I was in England and I got really excited because of all the things said about the brand and I was extremely excited about using both the products.
But in all honesty I am not satisfied with results at all. The DRYING LOTION is suppose to work overnight by drying out your pimples and giving them less appearance for the next day and the facial spray is just to give you a flawless sprit of all the good ingredients that it has to offer.
Mario Badescu: Drying Lotion;
I am not happy with the results of this product. it really did not work for me as the bottle and a lot of reviews say, it does! my outbreak was just the same after using it one night. so I decided to give it a go another day. but the results did not vary. it sits on the face and leave white spots after applying, changing itself into a powdery form.
it costed me 175dkk, and I actually regret buying it!
This facial spray smells really great and it also works really good as makeup prep and setting spray. But buying it only to get a balanced skin tone or just for your face is actually a waste. At least for me it is. it did not do anything specific and I didn’t not found any change in my skin, good or bad. so as there are not any specific cons in buying that spray you can always get a better one.
I will be writing about the best spays you can get to help your skin rejevunate and so you could see a much better difference.
Tell me have you used these products and how did they work for you?!….
till then Take care, and see you all in the next post !!!!!
hello to all my people out there!!! Hopefully winter is treating you all really well. just steer clear from all the cold and flu and the rest will get going along the way.
Skin care is suppose to be your number one priority specially since the cold weather is approaching us, its the time you take the most care of your skin from all the harsh environment. skin dryness is one of the most common factors, you will be dealing with and a good moisturiser is your best friend. so get you hands on a good moisturiser that works the best for your skin type.
So you can save yourself from situation like these;
So I went to a happy place, which too is Sephora the other day, and came in contact with one dermatologist. we started to discuss my skin and how can I maintain a well balanced skin routine that will help get it through this winter and almost all year round!
I have been using these products and I can swear by them. but you have to pick the one’s that works and satisfy your skin needs. I have a sensitive skin and its got combination to dry skin type, so I have very mild products that can suit almost everyone but if you have more oily skin or if you are dealing with other issues then I suggest you do some re-search and try to get the products that would perform well with your skin.
This is my 4-steps skin regime right there that works absolute wonders for me and I’m in love with these products.
Firstly, Be Consistent. you can never achieve your required results without putting all you effort and consistency in it. you have to perform the skin care routine twice a day to achieve the skin that you want.
Murad Essential-C cleanser;
Murad has one of the finest skincare products in the market right now. there products are bit pricey but I would say its all worth it. the products are gentle on your skin and works exactly the way I want my products to.
I have been introduced to double cleansing recently, its you cleaning your skin twice in a row to get better results. I would say it does the trick, since with the first wash only your outer layer of skin gets the chance to clean up, but you are leaving your pores that need some attention as well. just apply tiny amount of cleanser and rub your face gently for 40 to 60 seconds, both times and get that cleaner skin.
*I dont use a towel to wipe my face off, its much harsher for your skin try using a softer face towel or tissue to wipe your face off.
2. Apply the Glow tonic all over your face and neck;
after you are done cleansing your face, now will be the time to get a cotton pad, wet it for some water and getting rid of all the excess water and then applying the Tonic on it and gently patting it on your skin. using water over the cotton pad is just to neutralise the tonic, so it won’t have a strong affect on your skin.
I am literally involve with this pixi, skin exfoliated, applying it gives me a very satisfying feeling, it gets absorbed by the skin and I feel my skin breathing and singing happily! I will be getting more of these because its just that good.
3. Eye Cream;
Eye-cream should also be one the refined steps in your daily routine, You can start this step as early as 20 years of age. It keeps your skin elasticity and removes signs of aging and improves the appearance of dark circles. I have been using the Kiehl’s under eye treatment, what attracted me the most is its essential ingredient, Avocado. I loved anything that has avocado properties. This eye cream is just amazing and apply an extremely tiny amount because with eye crams a little goes a long way.
This is a very important step in your skincare routine, specially in winter. Cleansing your face gets rid of all the oils from your face and you need to give some moisture back to your skin. my skin gets red very easily and so I thought moisturisers were not my thing but I have learned over the years that your skin needs to get some external moisturiser to look and stay healthy.
But then the struggle to find the best moisturiser, that does its job without getting too greasy is still there. Don’t worry mates, I have got you. This current moisturiser from belif is just great. It is a gel like cream that sits on your face very fittingly. it has 70% hydration and that is just perfect. I apply it heavily on my T-zone and then spread it all over my face and neck!
*Never forget your neck, its important to do everything you do to your neck as well. the most common mistake is that people often forget about their neck. take care of it!
This is my current skin care regime and I am completely involve with all the products and how they work with skin. Tell me what new products should I try this winter.
Hi beautiful people, Hope you are all doing great and getting used to of he weather change real quick.
So whats the most exciting part about makeup that changes your whole game?
Well for me, it surely is the concealer. It hides those scary eye-bags and all the imperfections of one’s skin, making you look fabulous and ready to conquer the world.
As the progression of makeup, you have number of concealers to choose from as all the others makeup product. you need to find a concealer that reaches all your facial requirements and suits your skin type. you can choose between the light to full-coverage concealer, but obviously the more coverage the concealer have, the better.
You can apply concealer before of after the foundation. it usually is the second step after foundation. but if you any marks and imperfections feel free to dab some one first and then apply foundation and go under you eyes to get a flawless skin.
I have been using many concealers ranging from drugstore to high-end brands. and these are current one’s that you will find in my make-up bag.
Tarte Shape tape Concealer;
Let’s just bow down to one of the finest concealers in the beauty market. Tarte shape tape concealer had been used and loved by almost every single person that has used it, and it has been really hyped but it was worth all the praises and I personally love it. Tarte has set the stake real high and they have made it really hard for new brands to achieve that quality and to let people love something else other than shape tape.
The texture and consistency of this concealer is definitely very creamy yet thick. you do not need a second layer to hide the blemishes or for covering your under eyes. its heavy and too full coverage to be true. it won’t leave your under eye, creasing. Shape tape is available in many different shades making it amazing for you to choose your perfect match.
Huda Beauty Overachiever Concealer;
okay, so lets take moment and appreciate what Huda created with her concealer. She was not kidding when she got that concealer out. I can not honestly, tell you which Concealer between Tarte Shape Tape and Huda’s overachiever is the winner, because I have used both and I utterly felt involve with the Overachiever concealer.
Its consistency is creamy and its a high-end full coverage concealer though I figured that you do need to set it with a translucent powder for it to not crease and stay flawless. Same as Tarte Shape tape it does not need a second layer, because it does the magic in just one time. Somehow I have figured that Overachiever concealer has more coverage that the shape tape concealer. so I am biased with this decision, although with these concealers, your are promised to obtain a flawless, ready to rock makeup. Overachiever concealer too has a wide range of shades available for you to get the perfect colour.
Maybelline Instant Anti-age Eraser Concealer;
So if you want a drugstore budget, full coverage concealer, maybelline did it for you. this concealer is definitely amazing with all the qualities you would want in your concealer.
it definitely is not that full coverage as the Shape tape or Overachiever, but it does give you the fine look you want to go for. this concealer can be used a day-to-day basis or for a glammed up look. this concealer covers up really good and I can used it any day because it does the job for you. You might need to add more layers if you are going total in with the look.
Maybelline Fit me concealer;
This concealer is not one concealer you want to spend your money on, unless you are looking for a non-comedogenic concealer, that does not clogs your pores and keeps your skin face. If this is the reason then it is a best concealer for your face, unless you can get a lot better concealer within the same price. Its consistency is very watery and you definitely need a lot of layers if you want to hide all your skin imperfections. I recommend getting a shade exactly or sin colour because it will hide the imperfections much better than the lighter shade.
Tell me which concealer works best for you and why?
And welcome back Winter! *eyeroll*, its getting severely cold here in Denmark. tell me about all of you? How are you guys dealing with the weather living in your state?
Okay so what is the most primal and critical part about makeup? any guesses.. Well it is your Foundation. it can either make up or break the look you are going for.
You need to buy a foundation that suits your skin type, skin color and have the texture and consistency your skin is comfortable with. I recommend you spending a little bit more on your foundation rather than any other product since that is what you are using the most and all over your face. and it has to sit there making direct contact with your skin.
With the growing makeup industry. almost every brand has came up with their Foundation, and as hard it makes for us to shop, we definitely have more options to choose from, regarding our skin conditions and needs.
You can chose the foundation that works best for you. for example if you have dry skin, go for the foundation that is available in Liquid forms and have more tendency of moisturising.
If you have oily skin, go for the foundation that is matte and can absorb oils from your face and help it to stay less shiny and more matte.
If you have acne-prone skin, try to use mineral based foundations since they will not get into your pores and help it stay less irritable, and the ones that have more SPF in them to help your skin stay protected from the harsh environment.
So there will be foundation, for all your skin tyes. You just need to look for the one thats suits you the best, and gives the most flawless finish according to your needs.
How to apply foundation perfectly;
The best way I find to apply foundation, to give a natural finish is through a Damp Beauty Blender. I find that way to be my favourite since it requires less effort and does the job perfectly. Though if you want a more high-coverege look, use a good foundation brush.
These 2 are my favourite brushes to apply seamless foundation;
Here are the Foundations I have used and still use;
Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation;
My ultimate favourite foundation till date is the Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation, without any doubt, thats the foundation that gives me the full-coverage with just one layer and it has the most perfect finish. I can’t even describe how much I love that foundation. its high coverage, so I dont use it on day to day basis, I have saved it for al the events and dates with my husband, because thats when I want to feel the most comfortable and confident with my skin.
It is literally the best foundation, if you are into high coverage makeup looks. You just need to get the color that suits your skin the best and you will be ready to rock that look, after applying this foundation. this foundation will not budge until you have to remove your makeup. it is a little expensive though, so you will have to save some money before getting your hands on it.
this foundation really had been hyped a lot about, on the internet, and it was all true. Rihanna really did came up with the most creamiest textured foundation that sits on your skin really well. its consistency is smooth and rich and it blends in your skin exactly how you wish for a foundation to be.
tis foundation is Matty-fying so its best for the people with oily skin. But I have been using it for some time and I have a skin tone that is more towards the dry to combination side and its been just perfectly syncing with my skin. So its worth the buy and its not even that expensive as many other, same consistency brands. It is available is all the Sephora’s.
this foundation has also been popularised and talked about a lot. and it is perfect for people that have dry skin, its formulae is very creamy and it has water-like properties that I am not really a big fan of, plus the packaging is not what I like foundations to have. it has a open mouthed bottle, which gets the foundation to go to waste. Although you need to apply 1 layer of foundation to get seamless foundation . it applies really good and gives you a good finish which is shiny, and it removes all the blemishes which gives it a win-win situation. I mostly use it when I have to go to events for a longer period of time, because this foundation will last you through sweat and everything. It is a little expensive but I would say its justifiable.
Dior & M.A.C;
These are one of my favourite foundations that work amazingly no matter how good or bad your skin is. these foundations won’t get you down. Dior’s consistency is very creamy anti glides really well whereas M.A.C is more thick. these foundations have medium to full coverage, which can be used on day to day basis.
Dior is expensive but if you are looking for an alternate which is also drugstore priced, M.A.C will do the magic for you. M.A.C has SPF 15 which is amazing for you skin but should not be wore for flash photography since it will look shiny during night time.
I heard a lot about this foundation before buying it. its consistency and texture is very thick and coverage-wise this foundation is light to medium. I got a shade lighter than my skin tone so I was not really impressed about how this foundation worked with my tone, but it felt really good and light on skin. it does require a little effort to blend it in fully. but the result you get is really good
Maybelline Fit Me & L’oreal;
These 2 foundations are my all-time favourite. they are cheap and can be used on everyday basis by everybody. Both these foundations gives you a flawless finish with one to two layers, depending on where you are going to use it. these foundations are good for all skin-types. there texture is creamy, they are easily blend able, and they will last you a very long time. These foundations can be bought from any drugstore and they work literal magic. whether you are starting out doing makeup or you are a pro and have to use a daily foundation, these 2 will do the trick.
