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.
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.
The other day I posted a minute tutorial on my Snapchat & Instagram stories on how I take flat-lay photos and what steps I follow before posting a high quality photo on social media. I got a few requests to share the video on my blog as well so that you guys can watch the video back.
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).
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?
I’m personally super last minute when it comes to buying someone a gift so I’ve created a little V-day gift guide for her in case you would like to buy something for that special person in your life. I think Valentines day is the perfect day to express your love for the people in your life, whether it’s your mother, sisters, girl friends or your spouse. I don’t believe it should only be celebrated when you’re in a relationship/marriage. The items in this gift guide vary from make-up, home decor, jewelry and much more. I kind of want every single item, receiving home decor as a gift makes me so happy. There’s always room for extra home decor whether its in your living room, bathroom, bedroom or office. Also, a pair of good lingerie set can make me feel so good about myself, I personally find it a great confident booster.
I love stepping into a new season because it means: new beauty launches + new beauty trends. Most of the make-up trends this spring I had already seen coming but there are still a few trends that are unique and I wasn’t expecting. What better way to stay up to date with the latest beauty (& fashion) trends other than watching runway shows? Each designer of course has their own style and creates their own trends but these are the most popular beauty trends you’ll see next season.
Happy holidays! I hope everyone had a great 1st day of Christmas. I still find it way too hot in Dubai (especially for December) yesterday it was 31 degrees!.. I just want to experience winter for a bit and wear my knitted sweaters 🙁 Anyway, this is my look of the day. I’m still obsessed with chokers and hopefully the trend won’t die in 2017. I went for a gold eye make-up look with of course, glossy lips. I hope you like this look, all product and outfit details are linked below.
I finally got to try out the highly anticipated “Lip Paints” from Tarte Cosmetics. I love the fact that the brand is trying to cater to different skin complexions by creating a wide range of nude lip colors. All the shades are absolutely beautiful but to my surprise, the quality of each color differentiates so much from one another!
Happy Thursday! Today it’s martyrs day in the UAE and tomorrow it’s national day, which means; extra long weekend, yay! How are you guys spending the day off today? I have no plans so far, I might go to the beach, hopefully it won’t be too crowded. Today I’m sharing my very first Tumblr Thursday post! I get most of my inspiration from many different social media platforms but Tumblr is definitly my favorite place to look for new inspiration. I love sharing the newest trends & inspiration with you guys so I’ve decided to do a weekly “Tumblr Thursday” post where I share everything that I find inspiring. You’ll find all the individual pictures (& more) on my Tumblr page.
