The glowing FENTY look

The other day I experimented with the new FENTY make-up products. I went all in with the #TrophyWife gold highlighter, I just want to bathe in it! Since I went for a gold look, I paired it with a denim jacket & some gold accessories and I love this combo! Underneath the denim jacket, I’m wearing my favorite and most comfortable black jumpsuit, all product and outfit details are listed below.

Review + swatches: Kat von D “Everlasting Lip Liners”

I recently got my hands on the much anticipated “Everlasting Lip Liners” by Kat von D. I’m a huge fan of KVD make-up, their products never disappoint and I never find them misleading wether it’s by the names of the products or the hype around it. The lip liners collection features 30 shades in total. They range from a wide selection of colors, almost half of the collection features nude shades for different types of complexion. Despite the fact that this collection features many nude shades, I find them very versatile. The darker “nude” shades can be great as a base for medium brown and deep dark complexions. For the lighter & fairer complexions, these can be used as brown, taupe or rosewood liners.

How to wear bold colors in Autumn

I’m so glad that I can wear make-up again without my face melting off. It’s still quite hot in Dubai but the weather is definitely starting to cool off. As you already may know, I love stepping out of my comfort zone and trying out new looks. I thought I’d create a warm and bold look that’s suitable for Autumn/Fall. I was so inspired by the colors and aesthetics from my last Tumblr Thursday post however, I did give this look my own spin to it. Below you’ll find all the products listed that I used to create this look, including the lip combo.

First look at FENTY Beauty + swatches

I finally got my hands on the most anticipated make-up launch of the year: Fenty Beauty by Rihanna. I love Rihanna and everything she does, whatever she touches turns into gold so I HAD to have these products because I knew they’re going to be good. I attended the press launch yesterday at Sephora in Mall of the Emirates before it officially launched. The collection features 40 foundations which is so incredible! Women of all color love make-up and it can be difficult for many women with darker complexions to find their foundation shade. It’s great that she created a line that’ll feel all women included. The products are incredible and I can’t wait to get more highlighters. Below you’ll find the swatches and my full review. Also, important side note: Fenty Beauty is 100% cruelty free, YAY!

Beauty looks from the MET Gala 2017

It’s that time of the year again, glamorous gala season has kicked off at the MET gala in New York City. Every year I look forward to the event season to see what make-up and hair styles celebrities are wearing. I definitely have a few favorites this year. I loved Priyanka Chopra’s overall look, including her hair and make-up. Lilly Collins has nailed it and I absolutely love Taylor Hill’s pink eyeshadow look.

Current wishlist: Spring ready!

I’m currently spring cleaning and re-organizing my closet and make-up drawers to get rid of things that I no longer use or wear. But also to create space for new things (which is my favorite part). My birthday is coming (on the 28th) so I’m already looking for inspiration as to what I wanna wear on my birthday. When it comes to make-up looks, I’m still really into glowing, dewy skin and glossy lips. However, since summer is coming up I’m trying to experiment more with different lip colors – mainly peachy and orange hues.

My #1 beauty must have on a warm destination

As a make-up junkie and beauty lover, I still remember until this day the first beauty products I’ve ever used. My first lip balm I have ever used was by Labello and as I got a little older, my mom would allow me to use their colorful lip balms and so I did. I remember my go-to colorful lip balms were the Cherry flavor and Pearly pink lip balms by Labello and I felt so grown and feminine whenever I was wearing those. This season Labello has released 6 new limited edition lip balms with a neon packaging and I was really excited to try them out. The cute packaging actually glows in the dark however, it’s still invisible on the lips (even in the dark).

New trend alert: Glitter Highlight

Glowy highlighters are soooo 2016, apparently glitter highlight is the new popular trend of 2017. I’ve been seeing so many glittery highlighter looks through my social media feeds and I think it’s just starting. I’m all about trying new things and I think this glitter trend will definitely be one of them. You can wear the glitters on your cheekbones, around the tear duct, Cupid’s bow and even on your brow bones. Would you dare to rock this trend?
