Red Roulette

For those of you who don’t know, red is my favourite colour and I LOVE red makeup on my skin tone! I don’t often wear red clothes but I always manage find a way to wear red somewhere on me! Take a look at my favourite red makeup products!

Revlon Lip Butter in ‘Cherry Tart’ – £5 (On offer at Superdrug right now with 3 for 2)

When it comes to red lips, it’s a stark and sometimes outlandish thing to wear with a hijab so I find wearing a sheer wash of it on the lips is a nice way to pull it off. Lip butters have superb colour pay off and are super moisturising too! They don’t hurt the bank balance too much either!

Elizabeth Arden High Shine Lip Gloss in ‘Golden Red’ – £15

As well as sheer lipsticks, lip glosses are a nice way to wear red. This Elizabeth Arden red is a vibrant red with amazing gold glitter in it! It makes the red a little more subtle somehow and it makes your lips look incredible! This colour would suit most skin tones!

MAC blusher in ‘Frankly Scarlet’ – £18

The scariest blush you’ve ever seen? I thought so too, until I tried it on and it blew me away! This was the second purchase I ever made from MAC and It’s one of my all time favourite MAC products! It creates an amazing flush to the cheeks but doesn’t look too much.. Just apply it with a light hand because it’s super pigmented! Darker skin..? This would look AMAZING on you!

MakeUp Geek Eyeshadow in ‘Razzleberry’ – £3.63

MakeUp Geek eyeshadows are one of my favourite brands of eyeshadow! MAC quality for a fraction of the price! They’re super pigmented and this colour is amazing! It’s a reddish/ pink with gold glitter running through it! Notorious for being hard to wear on eyes, red isn’t the easiest colour to wear but experiment with it to see how it best suits you.

Sleek i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette in ‘Sunset’ – £7.99

I love Sleek palettes and this red-based palette makes wearing red eyeshadow so easy! The colours are mostly shimmery but there is a matte black. I love how the colour mix together to form new shades and how they look on their lonesome! I don’t use it a tonne during the summer but for some reason I love the way the colours look on pale winter skin!

Nails Inc. ‘Big Red Apple’ – £11.99
Rimmel 60 seconds ‘Double Decker Red’ – £3.69
Essie ‘Russian Roulette’ – £7.99

My hair routine!

20121026-144305.jpg
So for Eid this year, I’ll be curling my hair and putting on a hair and! I really want lustrous curls and want my hair to look shiny so I am using my trusted TIGI S factor conditioner and lusterizer!

These not only smell divine but they leave your hair look like AMAZINGNESS! I don’t really use the shampoo just because I feel like shampoo can be compensated with the conditioner and after- care products so I tend to use Boots Botanics Shampoo because its cheap and does the job! **

Plus.. Look at the lusterizer.. Thats not wet, its.. SPARKLES!!!

20121026-144311.jpg

I’ll be using my good old Babylis curling wand for the curling! I don’t think they sell this.. But for someone who covers their hair, I don’t really think an expensive wand is necessary so I think this cost £15-£20 about 7 years ago! Grab yourself a mid sized brush and some small clips so help with the curling process and BANG.. Instant glamorous curls!

TIP: ** These two products are really good for helping get rid of knots!

So as you guys know, I love a party!! Within reason of course and I love how as Muslims.. We get 2 Eid’s!!

Today, I’m going to do a get ready with me style blog post to show you what I wear and how I wear it! I’m also going to take you round with me on my journey and.. OF COURSE, show you our food (which is a little different this year)!

So come join me on this very special day!

Most memorable moment…


This has to be the first day of school for me! Not only was I unaware what school was thanks to my Asian parents not explaining it (they were glad to have time (why don’t Asian parents ever have no time???)).. I was also unaware of the tragedies that lay ahead! First of all, my parents had given me a watch for learning all my Salaah’s (Prayers), so that I could pray them on time. To me, it was the most beautiful thing in the world! The watch hands were tennis rackets and the background was of some butt naked woman (How contradictory) beating the crap out of a tennis ball! So.. on my first day, the class whore conned me into doing a swap for it, with some china doll that her mother had got from some jumble sale. I was so innocent and was so brutally broken in to! The first day of school.. The first day of the rest of my life! At least it eased me into the rest of life. It taught me a valuable lesson.. THERE’S ALWAYS A SCHEMING HCTIB OUT THERE TO GET YA!
