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 top 5 lipsticks to wear with a tan


20130712-233427.jpg

When it comes to lipsticks, I think it’s safe to say that I think I have quite a good collection! But one thing I struggle with is finding a perfect nude when I’m tanned!!

Much like my other pasty friends out there, I fake tan and this year was no exception! I actually fake tanned so much this year, I don’t remember what my real colour is anymore.. Until I look behind my ear.. Which I don’t do often! It’s quite hard to find a nude lipstick which is flattering when you’re tanned, be that fake tanned or sun worshipped.

So here’s a list of my 5 top tan lipsticks!

The first one is a cheap and cheerful nude colour from Rimmel! This shade is called ‘Nude Delight’ and is the perfect peachy nude! It suits almost everyone in my opinion! If you’re uber fair and tanned, it adds a gorgeous hint of peach whilst not disturbing your colouring and if you have a deep tan, because its not bright peach, it doesn’t look like ‘concealer lips’.

** Rimmel Nude Delight £6.29

The next shade is another good ‘un from Rimmel! This time from the Kate Moss for Rimmel line in the shade 03 (it has no name). This nude is a lot more brown toned and so is perfect of you’re going for a heavy makeup look whilst tanned and want to wear a nude colour! If you have darker skin or a deeper tan, this colour will look super without drawing the attention away from your make up.

** Rimmel Kate 03 £5.49

This colour is the perfect nude in my opinion and is my current favourite! It looks quite pink in the images (but that’s because my lips had become quite red from removing the lipstick from the previous swatches). This lovely nude colour is a lustre finish from MAC in the shade ‘Shy Girl’. The lustre finish means its not super pigmented but has a nice sheer and glossy finish. It looks lovely because it looks like your natural lip colour and its moisturising too! Btw.. MAC lipstick prices have gone up again!

** MAC Shy Girl (lustre) £15

This next one is for those of you who have darker lips or a darker tan and want to add more colour! Because its pink and has purple undertones, it’ll look great with a tan! This lipstick is from Shu Uemura and is in the shade ‘BG 955’. It’s really pigmented and is very moisturising too! I love this colour and this is the lipstick I go to when I want to add a quick flash of colour!

** Shu Uemura BG955 £19

The next one is my most favourite lipstick of all time! And this is the only lipstick in my life so far that I will probably finish and repurchase! This colour.. It makes me angry how perfect it is because I feel like I’ve wasted my time with all the other lipsticks! Estée Lauder ‘Crystal Baby’ came into my life and made it worth living! Whether you have a tan.. Be that a fair tan or deepest of deep tan, this colour is the perfect glossy pinky, peachy, browny nude! It smells divine and the packaging is lovely too! I can’t say enough good things about this. I promise you that if you get this, you won’t regret this high end purchase!

KIKO, Maybelline and Essie Make Up haul!


20130711-232529.jpg

I know I’m a little late with my daily blog posts but hopefully, I’ve managed to adjust my routine what with fasting and everything.. So here goes my first post!!

I recently went to Westfield and couldn’t help but stop off at one of my new favourite make up stores: KIKO! They have amazing quality products and for really good value so I couldn’t resist some of their goodies! Fortunately for me, all of the stuff I liked was on offer in their sale section!

The first thing that caught my eye was this ‘Wet and Dry eyeshadow palette in Holi Vibrations’. I bought a few other palettes from this collection which I hauled in a previous blog post and I love them! These colours are perfect for summer! They’re bright but not too bright and the shimmer will look gorgeous in summer along with those lovely pastel colours! They have fall out but nothing major so HAPPY DAYS!

Wet and Dry eyeshadow palette in Holi Vibrations £8.40

Having tried KIKO’s eye products only, I had a little dabble with these gorgeous blushes they have to offer! I had to get 2 because I could choose! They had a few to choose from but I chose the colours that would suit me beat! I like a subtle blush at the moment (a far cry from my previous look) and these have a beautiful finish.. The beige/gold colour on the end is shimmery so creates a lovely highlighted look!

20130711-233410.jpg

And just as I was leaving the store, these grabbed my attention! When I tested them on my hand, I knew I’d use these constantly! This lovely lips and cheeks product has a lovely texture and is really well pigmented! They haven’t over-done the pigment because its to be used on the cheek too- I suppose they want their consumers to not look like clowns! I love the texture, the smell (like vanilla!). These completely remind me of Sleek Pout Polishes but are so much better.. In my opinion!

No make up make up!


20121025-191442.jpg

I’m absolutely OBSESSED with the ‘no make up make up’ look at the moment! Usually I’m the kind of person who feels bare without any eyeliner or highlighter on my face!

It takes so confidence to go kind of bare faced when you’re used to caking your face with so many products, your makeup drawer looks like a Sephora loot! But I think I’ve cracked it with a very simple formula!

Step A: Good cleanse + hydrating moisturiser = perfect skin – foundation

I pride myself on maintaining my skin an it’s the one thing I never go without doing! Ensuring you take your make up off beautifully before bed and then washing/ exfoliating/ cleansing your face and then applying a hydrating moisturiser, will make your skin shine without the need for moisturiser!

Step B: Concealer + Blending = natural beauty

Everyone has those imperfections which they can’t bare being seen with! For me it’s my dark circles which wearing glasses and contacts have given to me over time! Get yourself a nice creamy concealer and blend as flawlessly as you can to create skin that looks naturally clean! **Avoid putting concealer on scabs and dry patches because it looks blotchy! Try moisturising those areas to help them heal faster, instead :)

Step C: mascara + pencil liner / bright shadow = awake eyes

Your eyes should do the talking in the no make up equation, the reason being that there is no bright lip, or contoured cheek coming up. By using a lengthening and volumizing mascara which will feminise your face. Using a highlighter in your inner corners will make your eyes seem brighter and more awake and by using a pencil liner to rim the waterline, it will add a little drama to your eyes to make your eye colour stand out more. ** Instead of using a black liner, use a brown or soft colour instead as it won’t seem as harsh. Tight line the the top lash line too to make your lashes seem fuller.

Step D: Cream blush + lip liner = a completed gorgeous look!

Cream blusher will look more natural than a bright pint powder blush just because it blends better and looks like skin. It also adds a nice dewy finish to the skin thus, beautifying your flawless face more! Add a simple nude lip liner around your lips to define them an fill in with your lip balm to add a touch of shine and moisture!

In summary:

Good cleanse + hydrating moisturiser = perfect skin – foundation

Concealer + Blending = natural beauty

Mascara + pencil liner / bright shadow = awake eyes

Cream blush + lip liner = a completed gorgeous look!
