DSC_1298In honor of Eid; i thought about posting something different! here’s a sneak peek of what happened when Arabs have visitors, of course a dinner, and coffee, and tea, and all of that stuff. 

the first photo is actually my favorite, it’s a censer. and for those who don’t necessarily know, it’s going to make the house smell good for a long time. you just need to put a perfumed coal, or a oud wood, or a sandalwood, or good smelling wood you want. And no, it won’t burn the house down.

Thank you for reading this post. and i hope you really liked the photos.

Love to Infinity & Beyond..

Eid GRWM+Tips!

large

Sometimes, getting ready for special occasions can take only 4-5 hours when it’s only one event! but when it’s more than event; Like Eid, is normally more than one day and event! so it might take several days to get ready for a long term events! i would get ready around the week of the event maybe 3 days beforehand. 

3 Days Before: 

DSC_1300 (1024x681) DSC_1303 (1024x681) DSC_1307 (1024x681)

Brush Cleaning: I’d say do that before 3 days of the event mainly because you will get out of the house only to run some errands and you won’t meet anyone special (maybe?!) and in some cases where you want to look put together, use cream products with what god have gave to you FNGERS!

1 Day Before: 

DSC_1310 (1024x681) DSC_1326 (1024x681)DSC_1311 (1024x681)

Hand & Feet Care: This is where you want to take time and pamper yourself a little more! because you shake hands, where (killer!) heels, and take full length photo (maybe!). so you want to take the extra time and effort to exfoliate your hand and feet with any scrub you have; i like creating my own scrub for this purpose. i already did my feet at a salon, but if i would at home i would do it this way. clip your nail if you have UNPREDICTABLY weak nails like me, or keep them nice and long by filing them! and then keep them nice and hydrated with hand and foot cream.

DSC_1295 (1024x681) DSC_1296 (1024x681) DSC_1299 (1024x681)

Bleach Facial Hair: I like bleaching my facial hair (Such as my extra unwanted brow hairs, PEACH FUZZ!) and all that kind of jazz! i make the bleaching paste with a Blonde coloring powder i use the Wella BLONDOR powder for lightening the hair (DO NOT USE IT ON YOUR HAIR! ONLY FACIAL HAIR!) and to make it paste-y and ready to use, i mix it with a liquid oxygen (You will probably think like “Woah isn’t it dangerous?!”) it is dangerous if you put too much of it and the smell quite potent and suffocating! and it might cause burns on the skin if you put too much!  let it set for 30 minutes and wipe off with tissue and water. and if you ever have a problem with skin irritation use the one and only Rosewater.

The Night Before: 

Pre-Shower : 

DSC_1294 (1024x681)

Hair Treatment: I know it looks GROSS!! but that’s what natural hair treatments look like! it’s actually a mix eggs, yogurt, and couple of beneficial oils. and if you want a post on this treatment let me know:) you can use the Oils treatment that i already made a post on it you can check it out right here. let it set for an 30 minutes or an hour. 

DSC_1317 (1024x681) DSC_1322 (1024x681) DSC_1320 (1024x681) DSC_1321 (1024x681)

Shave Or Epilate (or Both!):  While the hair treatment sets, shave (or epliate!) for shaving i use the Gilette Venus razor range this year i’ll be using the Pro Skin Razor. and For Epilating i use the Braun Skin-Épil7 and Braun have the best epilators. for Arms i shave, for legs i epilate. epilating arms can hurt af, so i’d rather shave my arms. and i also use razor for underarms and other places.

Epilating tips: To minimize the redness or irritation while you are epilating, i use the Veet Pre-Epilation Comfort Spray, and it’s smells fresh and minty and it’s very cooling. (only use for epilation!)

Shaving tips: to make shaving a lot smoother i definitely recommend the Gilette V Satin Skin Shaving Gel, this is the only shaving gel i use, and it helps so much, you just pump it into your hands and rub it to create a foam-y texture apply it to the desired area and Shave!

In The Shower: (only body and face!) 

 Get in the shower, rinse the treatment, wash your hair, condition it and move on to the body..

DSC_1330 (1024x681)

Exfoliate: as much as i like making my own beauty treatments and scrubs, i have to use this one because i want to get rid of it! it’s good but i like making my own, with natural ingredients. okay, now exfoliate your skin, i use the St.Ives Brightening body scrub, i like it, but i won’t repurchase it, mainly because (again!) i like creating my own.

DSC_1333 (1024x681)

Make Your Body Smell Good!: Here’s a sweet summer option for you! it’s the boujois Sweet Summer shower oil. i use it with an exfoliating gloves to further clean my skin. (If you have sensitive skin don’t use the scrub, the exfoliating gloves are enough!). 

DSC_1329 (1024x681)

Facial Exfoliation: this is important to me, because it will make your face so fresh and renewed and Life-Ready! i like the Garnier PureActive because it’s just amazing! 

Post-Shower: 

DSC_1312 (1024x681)DSC_1315 (1024x681)

Pore Refining Strips: This is a great step for cleaning the pores, and also clearing out the T-zone. i use the Nivea Refining Clear-Up Strips. And i love this stuff because it comes with a nose strips, and with a chin and forehead strips. HOW AMAZING! 

DSC_1325 (1024x681) DSC_1324 (1024x681)

Face Mask + A Skin Care Tip: This is could be either for extra cleaning for the T-zone, or for hydrating, today i used the “extra cleaning” one! which is the Soap& Glory Scrub Your Nose In It. Can be found at Boots.

The Skin Care Tip: because the products we used are quite dehydrating. to prevent your face from drying, i suggest using a skin milk, i use the Methode Cholley Bioregene Lait. which is quite hydrating, can be found at Boots.

DSC_1338 (1024x681) DSC_1334 (1024x681)DSC_1337 (1024x681)

Lip Care: I make my own lip scrub, it’s kind of the same thing as the hand scrub, but with something more. anyway, i keep mine in an old MAC pot, i exfoliate my lips near the sink, and wipe off with a towel and then apply lipbalm, i use the Labello Lip Butter ( it’s a German Brand) and of course Vaseline. 

DSC_1327 (1024x681)

Body Moisturizing: Keepin’ it simple here. I like using the Bath & Body Works Dark Kiss, because i like the not-too-sweet scent! it got the right amount of everything! 

DSC_1342 (1024x681)

Hair Care: After i towel-dried my hair, i use my favorite leave-in conditioner. Which is the Wella Pro Series Frizz Control. Let it air dry.

DSC_1346 (1024x681)

Blow Drying: Why I Air Dried My Hair, While I Will Use A Blow Dry It?! i use blow my hair because i have a curly, frizzy hair. And i blow dry it to smooth it out. This Blow Dryer we had for years, and i don’t really know anything about it! other than it’s by the brand Elchim (I think!).

DSC_1343 (1024x681) DSC_1339 (1024x681) DSC_1340 (1024x681) DSC_1345 (1024x681)

Heat Styling: Here, where the magic happens! at least for me! anyways, before styling, i use the L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil, and using a curling iron as wand (i think it’s 1 inch!) and it’s by One Tech. and finish it off with L’Oreal Elnette Hair Spray.

DSC_1351 (1024x681)

Mouth Washing: Finally! wash your mouth to have a beautiful fresh breath! i use the Colgate Optic White Mouthwash. and after that you can go and do your make up and dress up! 

 

Thank you for reading the GRWM! and hope you found something helpful! 

and hope you enjoyed it!

Eid Outfit No.3

DSC_1307 (681x1024)

The third day of Eid is where things gets more casual and this outfit is a little bit on the edgy side (but not so edgy..). anyways, some of the stuff i already bought years ago. and some of the stuff are new… this outfit quite simple without the jacket and the platform chunky heels. but i really like the bomber jacket and bomber jackets are really in right now! and what i like about it the it’s such a light material, that it won’t make you feel hot in the scorching summer days! and the shoes same as the first outfit.

DSC_1309 (859x1024) DSC_1311 (1024x681) DSC_1313 (1024x681)

I would consider this outfit as a Accessorize-heavy look! because the shirt is so plain and basic i added a chunky gold necklace you can see in the outfit picture and add some black and gold rings and earrings! i chose not to add any arm jewelry for a change!

DSC_1293 (1024x681)

and of course my new baby!

Jacket: Stradivarius

Shirt: New Look

Pants: Mango

Shoes: New Look (same here.)

DSC_1251 (1024x681) DSC_1317 (1024x681)

Eid Outfit No.1

DSC_1294 (1024x681)

 

This dress  and shoes that i showed you in my previous haul, and this out is bold in a sophisticated way, the dress is elegantly conservative with the cut, but it’s bold because of the pattern, the pattern isn’t overwhelming but it’s (also) elegantly bold.

DSC_1293 (1024x681) DSC_1304 (1024x681) DSC_1305 (1024x681)

And for accessorize i will keep it simple because of the bold-patterned dress. i added silver jewelry, and a kind of periwinkle-y colored bracelet to bring out the purple and grey in the dress.

Dress: BHS

Shoes: New Look

Bag: DKNY (this is going to be my all time bag from now on!)

Watch: New Look

Bracelet: Accessorize

Eid 2014 Haul ..

disclmer

 If you don’t celebrate it, please read for the content. and i respect your holidays no matter what, so please respect mine. i’m just here to talk about fashion and makeup and i’m telling you the reason for it. Thank you.. 

Okay, i’m here to introduce you to biggest haul and the final haul you’ll see this month (i promise!) i don’t shop this much all year around only this month again for a specific holiday.Keep in mind that i didn’t buy all of this stuff in one shopping trip! okay, let’s get started..

DSC_1167 (681x1024)

the first store i got my clothes from is Stradivarius, it’s a Spanish-based brand but i love their clothing, but i only got the Bomber Jacket, but not the true Bomber jacket it’s a lot thinner and lighter material and it has the gold zipper and a cotton lining i guess! but you see right here that it looks very tropical despite the black background. and i know that bomber jackets are really in right now, so that’s a bonus!

DSC_1170 (681x1024)

The second store i went to is Mango, i love Mango i always find the right stuff in there, which is great! and i got this beautiful Overlay dress and it’s pretty and flattering!

DSC_1172 (1024x681)

And then i went to Promod, which is a French-based brand; and i never actually buy stuff from there, but i really liked this shirt, which is kind of like a satin material in the front, and another material (i think it’s polyester?!) in the back! and i love the print on it, it’s very bohemian and light. And Grey is my favorite color to wear! (Although it shows sweat very easily! sorry, TMI!) but i love this top so much!

DSC_1199 (681x1024) DSC_1201 (1024x681) DSC_1202 (681x1024)

And New Look! Ahhh my favorite brand ever!! so first thing is a boring white light shirt! (For some reason the white shirt remind me of Shailene Woodley as Hazel in the TFIOS! idk!) anyway, and i got this beautiful t-shirt that says “Coca-Cola” on it! i LOVE it! very vintage looking to me! i don’t know why! and finally in the bottom is a kimono! i love kimonos, i think they are the most comfortable thing in the summer! so i got that from New Look ❤

DSC_1295 (1024x681)DSC_1297 (1024x681)

And finally for clothing i went to BHS which is a British brand and the first thing i got is the dress on the left. I LOVE IT!!! it fits perfectly, it’s classy, and it’s an appropriate length (which is so important to me, cause i don’t feel comfortable wearing revealing clothes, that’s just me!) and it’s white with navy lace layer on top of it! and it’s beautiful! and the dress on the right it’s so beautiful and conservative (cause i’m young for anything revealing! that’s why!) and i love the pattern of this which is really cool and adds a beautiful detail on it! and the cut of it makes everything looks FINE!!

that was it for clothing! now because i love make up and (TRUST ME!! i don’t buy make up all year round i only buy it for last month and this month! DSC_1179 (1024x681)

High end make up! some of the stuff i didn’t open them cause i’ll start using them in October. 

 DSC_1180 (1024x681)

I was in need for a new mascara, and i’ve been dying to try the YSL Shocking and i finally got it!

DSC_1181 (1024x681) DSC_1182 (1024x681) DSC_1183 (1024x681)

First, Let’s take a moment to appreciate the packaging of Too Faced La Creme lipsticks! i love the packaging! now, everyone likes Too Faced lipsticks and i wanted to try them but with a color that i don’t have and i got it in Spice Spice Baby, it’s a My Lips But Enhanced type of look! especially on my skin tone!

DSC_1185 (1024x681) DSC_1187 (1024x681)

I wanted to try the stain glosses for a while and i finally had the chance! i was looking for the number 109 which is like a fuchsia reddish color with gold shimmer in it ( go search for it! it’s beautiful!) but they didn’t have it! i was disappointed but she gave me another option and i liked this color! and when i got it i was like (bright colors are the ones that you want them to last on your lips right?!) and i got it anyway! and now i’m in love with this color it’s number 104 Fuchsia Tomboy.

DSC_1188 (1024x681) DSC_1194 (1024x681) DSC_1195 (1024x681)

As much as i love my Body Shop brow kit! i think that Brow Zings by Benefit is better! the powder is so finely milled, and the wax isn’t too waxy which is great, and it lasts for a long time, i had it before but i was using it in the wrong way, so i gave up, gave it to my sister, and then later i got the Body Shop one, fell in love, tried the Brow Zings again, fell in love with Brow Zings! (i feel like i wrote Brow Zings a lot!) anyways, i got it in the darkest shade (which is obviously Dark!) because of my natural black hair.

DSC_1263 (1024x681) DSC_1265 (1024x681)

Now, everyone was liking the Rimmel Scandal Eyes liners, and i thought i give them a try, i got it in the bronze shade! Fell in love! they’re creamy, stay put, the color is amazing, the shimmer in this is so beautiful! like it’s gonna take you to whole another planet! seriously though!

DSC_1268 (1024x681) DSC_1269 (1024x681) DSC_1270 (1024x681)

And another nude colored lip product! this so creamy and pigmented! this is one of the new lipgloss range they have, idk! but they’re really cool! i got it in the color 600 Nude Vibrato.

Enough with the beauty products, now onto the accessorize…

DSC_1162 (1024x681)

I was looking for a headpiece since the beginning of the year probably! and i finally found this beautiful sparkly headpiece from Accessorize (it’s a UK brand if you didn’t know!) and i really like it so much, and i cannot wait to wear it!

DSC_1160 (1024x681) DSC_1165 (1024x681)

I normally buy bracelets that are either chunky of anything other than the one in the picture, but i thought about trying something easy to wear and quite simple.

And these rings!! ugh! these are the most fierce and edgy rings i have ever seen! i love them! i’m sure i’m going to get lots of compliments on them! bracelets and rings also from Accessorize.

DSC_1157 (1024x681)

this hand chain is so cool! like it’s totally unbelievable that i have these! they’re from Claire’s and they are from the Katy Perry collection and i like them!

DSC_1251 (1024x681)

I love sparkly studs! they’re very easy to wear, and good for any occasion. these are from Aldo and i will wear them non-stop!

Shoes and Bags are my favorite things in the world! so i got some pieces that i can’t get my eyes off of them..

 DSC_1204 (1024x681) DSC_1205 (1024x681)

every time i buy heels, i would buy pumps, but this time i wanted something different! a chunky heeled platform! it’s a black suede and it has silver buckle on the side, which adds a cool touch! and they are from (my favorite store EVER!) New Look.

DSC_1293 (1024x681) DSC_1289 (1024x681) DSC_1290 (1024x681)

Saving the best for last! i finally got my first designer bag EVER! i am so happy with this baby! and i love them to bits! and they are the DKNY Saffiano Leather Small Satchel! i love it! and i couldn’t be any happier! because it really made realize that everything could happen! my 10 year old self wouldn’t believe this! i remember when i was 10 i used to be on Stardoll and i saw DKNY and when i knew it was a real brand i thought it was so cool and i will never have something like it! so, this bag is so sentimental for me! for some reason! i think everytime i look at it, i will believe more and more that “Everything is Possible! No Matter What!”

so, that was the end of my haul! hope you enjoyed it!

Love you to infinity & Beyond ..

Summer Hair Inspiration ..

Summer is the season of effortless hairstyles, i love effortless hair styles. so here’s a few that i will surely wear them for the rest of the summer.

 

07-wangbbr-tmagArticle-v2

the effortlessly beautiful beachy waves, are the most gorgeous hairstyle to wear this summer. and it’s on trend as i said in my previous post right here.

602B9332

the braided bangs/front pieces. a lovely way to get you hair out of your face. and it’s so good when it’s so hot outside and you don’t wanna get pimple on the covered area, since lots of people are prone to that.

٢٠١٤٠٧١٨-٠٥٢٩٣٥-١٩٧٧٥٢٨٠.jpg

as i said in my last post, i am a huge braid type of girl, my favorite easy but well-detailed is the fishtail braid. Blake Lively wore it in a great way if you have layers in your hair; for an effortless beautiful hair.

so that was the end of my quick post, hope you liked it.

and look out for more post this week and after that.

Spring/ Summer 2014 Beauty Trends ..

٢٠١٤٠٧١٨-٠٥٣٢١٣-١٩٩٣٣٨٩١.jpg

 

As I recently posted a Spring/ Summer 2014 fashion trends on this blog and talked about some of my favorite, now while i was writing that post i also had the beauty trends in mind cause that is definitely my favorite subject. now, i would definitely wear some of the trends in a wearable way (of course!) as much as i enjoy wearing an editorial look; but, i never have the enough confidence wearing them out.

so, everybody; here’s the Spring and Summer 2014 beauty trends and i will start with makeup cause it will be a lot!

Makeup: 

giorgio-armani Marc-Jacobs-Spring-Summer-2014-Backstage-Beauty-1SS14C-MiuMiu-104_2690496a

The Blue On The Eyes: 

Blue, is one of my favorite colors to wear on the eyes, it’s such a flattering color on! and this year a few of the biggest fashion shows made the blue really stand out onto the models’s eyes such as Marc Jacobs, Giorgio Armani, Miu Miu. i would wear the blue like in the Mac Jacobs show wear it’s an all over liner, which i think it’s wearable but still unexpected..

Anthony-Vaccarello-beauty-ss-2014 nars-rodarte-ss14-beauty-look-1-091013 Versace+Spring+2014+Backstage+6Tf1B1IdT0Ll gallery_big_Smokey_Cat_Eye_Makeup_Trend_Spring_2014

The Feline: 

The timeless beauty look, it’s flattering on everyone. I was really excited to see that the feline eye have definitely made it to the trends list for another year. and some of the shows made it a bit editorial like Anthony Vaccarello, and some of them made some-what wearable like Rodarte. and Versace made it beautifully wearable. So, i would wear it the “Versace” way because it’s feline but hazy which gives it the slutry look.

The Golds: 

Gold, is easy to pull off when it comes to shadows, and thankfully! it’s actually in this season, which is great because i would wear gold but not in the way that big fashion houses like Dior & Dries Van Noten did it, but i would included in a shadow look.

The Natural Look:

I’m glad that our everyday look is on trend! Shows like Chloé, Balmain, And Isabel Marant, made the Natural is the look of the season, and i would happily being naturally on trend:)

4c2699e56f8cdeede985c602e899d2d9

White Eyes:

the white eyeliner is a great editorial twist to your party make up, wear it in a beautiful and subtle way like the Kenzo show.

Alexis-Mabille-paris-fashon-week-ss14-4BGDfo-lgn altuzarra-makeup-test-4 Antonio+Berardi+Spring+2014+Backstage+-jz21kYm3abl

Red Hot Lips:

Since (i don’t know!) the 1940’s?! Red lips have been the ultimate bold & beautifying look of all time! it’s just a timeless makeup element that never goes out of style! and shows like Alexis Mabille, Altuzarra, and Antonio Berardi. give you more options to wear the red lips.

Prada+Spring+2014+Backstage+ChS_z7m1U8Sl

Pastel Eyes:

Although i don’t have lot’s of pics, but there’s a few shows have done the pastel shadow look like Céline, Prada, and others. but you need to wear it full-on or involved in a smokey look (although, i like it!) but you can totally wear a light shimmer-y peach shadow or a silver-y minty color as a wash over the lids, and it will look beautiful.

ImageGen John+Galliano+Spring+2014+Backstage+5wfoYUn3w1fl Rag-Bone-lips

 Orange Lips:

 Orange Lips have been the main focus since the beginning of spring! fashion shows like John Galliano, Rag & Bone, DKNY; made the orange lipstick the focus of the beauty look for the show. i don’t have an orange lipstick; but i would definitely wear something similar to orange like the beloved Coral! which is MAC Vegas Volt, i did a whole post about the bright lipsticks that i own (which is not too much) you can check it right here.

and we are done with the makeup portion let’s move onto the hair portion.

Hair Trends: 

07-wangbbr-tmagArticle-v2 Anna+Sui+Spring+2014+Backstage+6UTInQdBBS-l

Beachy Waves: 

I love beachy waves! i go for this look every single time i curl my hair, there’s something about it that i find it really attractive! so i’m glad that it’s actually in! shows like Alexander Wang, and Diane Von Furstenberg made it beautiful and casual and effortless! while Anna Sui made it mermaid-like with a bohemian vibe. definitely my go-to look this summer!

Braids: 

I am definitely a braids type of girl, i hardly ever wear buns; which is unusual for a teenage girl, since most teenager prefer wearing a messy bun! but i think that braids are healthier, beautiful, put-together, and also timeless. braids are my go-to look for a heatless hairstyle! i go for different kind of braids. and also fashion house such as Rebecca Minkoff, Alberta Ferretti have been going for a different kind of braids. Which is good, cause i also wear braids 🙂

That was it for this week’s post i will be posting something new very soon, and there’s almost 10 days left until August(us)! i cannot believe how fast it went by! like it’s unbelievable! sorry i haven’t posting a lot of things but i was so BUSY!! i still am busy but i finally found time! which is excting!

Thank you for reading everyone! hope you enjoy this post!

Love you to infinity & beyond!

Spring/ Summer 2014 Fashion Trends ..

large (2)

Hello friends.. today i thought about doing something different other than makeup and beauty and all that stuff, and talk about fashion instead for a little bit. now fashion have always been my passion (even before makeup) and i loved fashion designing but that changed a little bit and leaned more towards fashion styling.. okay, trends changed every now and then and i love changing my style for a certain event and add a quite different and surprising element sometimes (if i ever got the chance!) and yeah! i like doing something quite different than the other girls i know. okay, this year fashion been going a bit different; but understated. and since that my favorite description for my style; i said YES! so, i went through magazines, my favorite fashion and beauty sites to know what’s in.. let’s start with my favorite trends on the runway shall we?!

7.nocrop.w1800.h13308.nocrop.w1800.h1330 (3)28.nocrop.w1800.h133032.nocrop.w1800.h1330lanvin yelow

Citrus-y, Bold Brights..

now, that’s the most different but kept understated with the basic non-fancy cuts, some of the biggest fashion names have been making a beautiful statement colored designs on the runway such as; Lanvin, Aigner, Christian Siriano, and Derek Lam. and i think these colors screams Summer, and it’s easy to pull off (again.) when it doesn’t have a complicated cuts.

Silvers .. 

Silver is an unusual color to wear, but it’s definitely outstanding and metallic, and beautiful. fashion houses have been rocking a whole silver outfit like Julien Macdonald and Paco Rabbbane, or add some silver pieces like Zimmermann.

White .. 

White, is the ultimate color this season, it’s everywhere, from runways to magazines, to fashion blogs, to street style pictures! it’s literally everywhere. but that doesn’t mean that it’s annoying, it’s FANTASTIC! one of the biggest fashion brands white has been added to their Spring/ Summer collection like: Chloé, Nina Ricci, Tom Ford, and Versace. so, white is well-loved this season. I love white.

Dark Blues .. 

Dark Blue is one of the most flattering colors on anybody. This season you can rock dark blues through an outfit like Stella McCartney, or add a simple element like a bag, as in Philip Lim.

Black & White ..

I love wearing black and white together like, you can’t even stop me! it’s just so flattering, chic, sophisticated, easy to pull off. i just love it! and i know that it’s in this season because fashion shows like Derek Lam and Christian Siriano; have been adding the to their Spring / Summer collection.

Menswear .. 

Menswear have been so in ever since Angelina Jolie wore a suit to the BAFTA’s and she definitely rocked it. i really like this trend and i think it’s perfect for summertime and winter time, which is a great outfit all year round! and so many celebrities have been rocking this trend.

The Sheer..

Sheer blouses, mesh cutouts, all of it is in this season, and i am one of the biggest fans of this trend. and i would love to try it out .. it’s just so different and i think it’s beautiful if you try to show a little bit of skin, but not too much that it’s so revealing and you’re not going to comfortable in it. i know i am not comfortable to show so much skin, but i don’t mind showing a little bit.

So that was the end of the Spring and Summer 2014 fashion trends, make sure to look out for the beauty trends.

i hope you liked the post and i will see soon!

i will love you to infinity and beyond!

A Quick, Easy Way To Remove Eye Makeup .. !

large (1)

Hello Everyone!

This is probably the first post that starts with a “hello!”. I’ve been so busy this week and i haven’t got the chance to write a post! i’m really sorry! anyway, as a makeup fanatic, sometimes i like to set in front of the mirror; apply a full face of makeup and when i’m done, i take it all off  (To some people it’s a long process!) even to me taking makeup off is a long, boring process. but today when i was experimenting with makeup i thought “Why not experimenting with removing makeup?”. and when i started removing makeup it’s got a lot easier.. and i’m going to tell you about it right now!

First, i want to talk about the products i’m going to use and a little review about them. this product is the second bottle of it (not that it’s my favorite, but it’s not bad!) i have a love/hate relationship with this product because, it’s great! but i just got bored of it, i don’t know what i was thinking when i bought the second bottle! but i do like this product. from my experience, this product wipes eye shadow from the first swipe, eyeliner with the 4-5th swipe, and the mascara you to work it in. this the Garnier Essentials Makeup Removing Milk with Rose Extract.

the second product is Rosewater. Rosewater is like my beauty elixir, it’s very calming, hydrating, and refreshing, it’s the perfect summertime face mist! and it’s natural, so it doesn’t have any chemicals or anything! and lot’s of makeup artists use this (not particularly the one in the photo) but they use rosewater, and also Candice Swanepoel swears by it. now, let’s talk about some serious benefits of rosewater, one of the main benefits of rosewater that it’s soothing an irritated skin, a rich source of antioxidants, which strengthen the skin cells and regenerate the skin tissue, and also is known for being great for sensitive skin! (BONUS!)

I also like to keep my rosewater in a spray bottle to make it a multipurpose product 🙂

 

HOW TO DO IT:

Now, you’re going to take a pea size amount of the makeup removing milk and (Carefully!) rub it on both of your eyes in a circular motion. REMEMBER too keep your eye closed, because this product kind of irritated my eyes a little bit because my eyes were a little open. when you’re going to look like a raccoon , you know you’ve done it the right way *Thumbs up!*. then take your cotton pad and spray (or soak) some rosewater and take off some of the makeup remover. that way it will ensure that your eye makeup is gone and also the rosewater will sooth, calm, and hydrate your eye area; which is known for being sensitive.

and i’ll even add a demonstration for you:

BTW, the hand with nail polish on that’s my sister,

not the one who took a picture of my hand in my “what i’ve been loving in June”.

anyway, that concludes my post for this week.

i’ll see you next week with a different type of posts, and i hope you’ll love them.

and also tell me what you think of the picture on top of the post, i made it myself, and please be nice! that’s my first try!

Thank you for reading and i’ll see you soon.
