April Beauty Favourites!


20130429-214614.jpg

I’ve been blogging everyday during the month of April and I’ve mentioned some of the beauty essentials that I’ve been loving but here’s a post collectively showing you all the products!

The biggest change for me has been foundation! I’ve had Nars Sheer Glow for ages but recently I’ve been using it mixed with moisturiser and by itself (when I want more coverage). I love the colour, how it feels and how it looks!

** Nars Sheer Glow- Light 4 Deauville

Whenever I use foundation, I have to contour my face and this product has saved my life! I love using it to contour my cheekbones, jawline, temples as well as my nose and even crease! This colour is perfect for me during summer!

** Sleek Face Contour Kit- Medium

When I’m not using foundation I’ve been using my Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed Powder! This is a full coverage foundation but during these warmer months, wearing a powder helps set the face! This colour is perfect and it helps make your skin look flawless!

** Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed Powder- Real Sands

I recently done a blog post in this MUA eyeshadow palette saying how similar it was to the Urban Decay Naked Palette! This is such good value for money and I’ve been loving a neutral eye for the days when I don’t want to wear much on my eyes but still want to look made up!

** MUA- Undressed

Instead of using winged eyeliner, I’ve been using my KIKO Super Colour Eyeliner on my bottom lash line! I love how fine the felt too applicator is and the colours are so vivid! They look fantastic as a pop of colour to the face!

** KIKO Super Colour Eye Liners

MAC Pink Swoon was the first ever blush I bought from MAC! And I’ve loved it since I ever got it! It’s a lovely sheer pink colour that is buildable.. Although it doesn’t last all day! I love the look it gives your skin and I think it would suit any skin colouring!

** MAC- Pink Swoon

I’ve never been one for highlighters but I’m going eyebrow crazy lately! A well kept eye brow really does make a well kept face! I love the cream to powder formula and the highlighting end is a perfect colour for highlighting your eyebrow arch, inner corner and even cheekbones!

I’ve loved blogging everyday during April and I’d like to thank everyone who’s kept up! I’ll be back soon with more!

Make up brushes!


20120904-182551.jpg

When I first got into make up, I used to always wonder what was the best way to apply the make up!

20120904-180753.jpg

I went on eBay and found the most cheapest set of brushes I could find! When they arrived after 4 months of waiting, they were REALLY bad fake MAC brushes made of thorns! I then decided to invest in a brush roll of expensive GENUINE MAC brushes and I fell in love with those! The only thing is, MAC brushes are very hard to get because I have to go into Central London to get them which isn’t a journey I do often. And I don’t like buying online after some bad purchases so I’ve learnt the hard way!

20120904-182527.jpg

I’ve looked in Superdrug and Boots the time and there’s some brands I’ve fallen in love with! Eco Tools and Models Own have some fantastic brushes and Cosmopolitan do fairly good ones too although they don’t last long!

Then Pixiwoo’s Samantha Chapman joined with Real Techniques to make brushes that have changed my life! IM IN LOVE!

They’re excellent value for money an she’s pretty much covered every brush type you’ll ever need!

The brushes I have:
20120904-180806.jpg

  • Blush brush– perfect for blusher, powder and bronzer
  • 20120904-181637.jpg

  • Stippling brush– this brush is perfect for foundation and blusher
  • 20120904-181620.jpg

  • Buffing brush– which is available in the core collection. This is perfect for mineral foundation, powder, foundation and blusher
  • 20120904-181607.jpg

  • Contour brush– perfect for contour, bronzer and blusher
  • 20120904-181630.jpg

  • Detailer brush– perfect for smudging eye shadow/ liner and is fairly good for lipstick/ glass application
  • 20120904-183900.jpg

  • Pointed foundation brush– perfect for…??? To be honey, this is the brush which I’ve NEVER found a use for! I might reshape it though by cutting it and use it as a concealer brush because the point is lethal!
  • The design of the brushes is fantastic and the price is also amazing! The core collection is £21.99 an the separate brushes start from £9.99! Boots often do deals where they do tools at 3 for 2 or buy one, get one half price so look out for them! They’re also available worldwide in most countries!

    20120904-182522.jpg

    Want to know how to use the brushes, Sam has an AMAZING make up channel on
    YouTube with her sister Nicola and they do fantastic make up tutorials where they use their brushes.

    EID!!!


    Let me give you a run downnnnnn!!
    I blogged all day throughout Eid of te main things I wore and done, but let’s share in a little more detail, shall we :)

    So my make up and clothes I already showed many of you guys! Unfortunately, in all the pictures that were taken, my hair was out so I don’t have a picture of me wearing my outfits! I wore 2! Simply because I had guests over at my house and then went out later!

    My first outfit! A light beige colour with real embroidery! I live this lightweight suit and it manages to look demure but still young

    20120820-183412.jpg

    The second outfit was for when I went to my uncles house! It had a lot more beading and detail and I loved the nude colour! It also kept me very cool! The earrings are from Debenhams and the shoes from New Look for £19.99

    EID MUBARAK!!!! Food!


    This year we all decided to have a BBQ because the weather was amazing! There’s a lot of meat on the menu! We have Chicken, lamb, beef and fish too! We’re all carnivores in my family

    and there’s nothing more we love better than a spicy stake! Please don’t be defended my fellow vegetarians.. We had halloumi!

    There’s a lot of food here, so take a look and if your mouth waters, it smells and tastes as good as it looks! WHOAAAA MOMMAAAA!

    EID MUBARAK!!! Clothes + OOTD


    So obviously, I’m Pakistani!! Well it’s not obvious but now, you know I am! I’m a big fan of the new style of clothes that have come in which are long and baggy because they remind I my abaya! An abaya is my shell! So I love that!

    This is what I’m wearing today! With a complete OOTD for you too!

    Earrings: Debenhams
    Suit: Pakistan
    Shoes: Boutique in Chiswick, London

    Some of you may notice, I don’t go ‘all out’ on Eid! Simply because we’re SOOOO busy and always moving around! So I’d rather be comfortable! Also, Eid is always around my uncles house so we’re at home where we wear no shoes and sit on comfortable sofas! No need for faff!

    EID MUBARAK!!!! Make up


    EID MUBARAKKKKKKKKK!!! This is my first Eid with my fellow WordPress-ers! I’m so excited and happy to spend it with you guys! I’ll try to blog a couple of times today! I’ll include lots of pictures and ensure I give you the low down about our festivities!

    20120819-124438.jpg
    I’ll start with my make up!!!

  • Rimmel hide the blemish concealer.. It’ll lasts all day and makes your skin look flawless!
  • Bit of Nars Sheer glow because it looks fantastic! Makes your skin look healthy and yummy.. Only a bit of foundation though cause the temperature is 31 degrees Celsius!
  • Sleek au Naturel palette mixing the 4 colours at the top middle (highlighted) which gives me a nice even base!
  • Nars laguna! I’m using this perfect mid brown colour to use in the crease to define my eyes and I’ll use it in the hollows of my cheeks too
  • Maybelline colossal volume express mascara for volume and for a big boost to my natural lashes
  • Maybelline eye studio gel eyeliner for a lovely cat eye to enhance me eyes
  • Fasionista gel eye liner! No colour but this looks great on top of the black as it has green glitter in it (not highly pigmented, though, hence the black first)

  • Beauty UK glitter liquid eye liner in gold which looks so nice in the inner corners of your eyes and lash line!
  • Jemma Kidd cream blush in guava! Perfect coral pink
  • Elizabeth Arden Crystal Baby which is a gorgeous sheer and shiny nude pink
