DSC_2380 (1024x681)

Hello my beautiful angelic friends.. i am really sorry for being away for the longest time, i just have been really busy with school..

anyways, i am here today to tell you about my personal face brush guide, (and for the records, it’s the simplest guide you can ever imagine, cause basically i don’t own all that collection for face brushes or whatever!) let’s get to the point..

Starting with the base (or brushes for liquid products), The Flat Foundation Brush. It’s great for cream or liquid product placement, i wouldn’t recommend using it by its own, because it will leave some streaks and harsh lines. for example:- foundation placement, cream blush, cream/liquid highlighter, this is Eco Tools Flat Foundation.

1- Foundation Blending: great for blending foundation (creams or liquids). Eco Tools Complexion Blending.

2-Small Powder brush: awesome for setting powder in small areas, such as, underneath the eyes, and i personally don’t powder much, so just in the T-zone area, or even only the sides of the nose. Eco Tools Full Powder.

3- Pointed Flat brush: (some people use it for contouring, i personally don’t contour, EVER!) so, i use it for putting concealer in small areas. Eco Tools Precision Foundation.

Big Fluffy brush: i use this if i was going to a special occasion, where i’d use foundation and i need to set my whole face, it’s great for setting wider areas of the face, and sometimes for blending powder face products. my sister got me this brush from her university.

Blush Brush: this is great because it’s kind of flat, so it’s going to be easy to lay the color down your cheeks, and it’s really soft. The Body Shop Blusher Brush.

Small Dome brush: good for contouring and bronzing powder products, since it’s kind of rounded, it would be easy to blend with control, so your contour or bronzer won’t look harsh, but at the same time you won’t ruin the placement. an old brush from Claire’s.

Fan Brush: Is awesome for highlighting, it just gives you the ultimate glow, it’s one of my favorites. Eco Tools Deluxe Fan.

Most of my brushes from Eco Tools are  from this amazing set (Fresh & Flawless 5-piece set).

that was it for this week’s post, i’ll try to post every week from now on, and i’m sorry again for being away so long.

thank you so much for reading this post and i’ll talk to you later.

Love, Shahad..


My Problem with Aphrodite.. (a Quick Post ♥)

Hello my beauties, welcome back! so, today i have a little story for you, but it’s not necessarily a review, because i had to review this i’d say it’s a great product, but not for the purpose of creating it.

Now, this is the first product i tried from Sandine Zartaux, it’s a Grecian brand, and i think it’s a great brand, but i haven’t tried anything but this one product (only).

First of all, i’m not a fan of the whole firming-lotion-shit, i personally think it’s a sales gimmick, but i admit that there’s some really good firming lotions out there, for example, the Sodashi Spa Contouring Body Lotion, i personally haven’t tried it, but my sister did, and it worked on her.

Aside from that, i used this lotion (Sandine Zartaux one) for an amount of time, and then i left it a bit for a while, and then i came back to it and my whole entire body was flaming, and it turned to this bright red, that actually when i put an ice cube on it, it melted right away (seriously though!).

P.S. the date of the lotion expiration is 2016, so the whole “lotion might be expired thing” is not the deal.

that was it for today’s post, i know it’s a tiny post, but i have a lot of new ideas for you coming up.

but thank you so much for reading this post, i really hope you liked it, i hope you have a wonderful day, and i’ll talk to you again very soon.

Love, Shahad ..
