Sweets day II

photo 2I can’t believe a year has passed on my last sweetsday post.. and here comes again another half traditional half modernized outfit for the day.

What I wore: a bisht by Purpura fashion (Kuwaiti designer), top shop jumpsuit. Paired it with Christian Louboutin brown pumps.

Unlike the annual-usual over accessorizing during grangao nigh, I went for very little jewels this time, and there were two reasons for that. First, the bisht didn’t really give me much choice. And the second reason is that I was really excited to finally have an occasion and an outfit that fits my 20s inspired necklace that my dad has gotten for me the last time he visited Turkey. The excitement came after F. Scott Fitzgerald’s recent remake of the great Gatsby where the movie had wide ranges of stone and pearl stunners that have made me fall deeper in love with Ziegfeld collection. An addition to the necklace I added two serpenti rings and gold earrings.

Few highlights of my makeup on the 14th of Ramadan was maybelline one by one mascara, Tom Ford pure pink lipstick (which is the most worn lipstick I’ve ever owned and I’m very sad they have discontinued it) and finally glow getter fake tan.photwwwwo 2

An advice to glow getter fake tan users: apply it hours before you get ready you’re gonna get AMAZING results. I used to spray it minutes before I leave the house which was a huge mistake it’s gonna stink your cloths and won’t have enough time to sink into your skin. I could see a huge difference when I apply it hours before my date night.

Make Up: Gold Baroque

photoBefore I start with my makeup, I have to fix some issues with my skin, if it’s one of those days where its unbelievably dehydrated, I would use Liz Earle moisturizer. The second thing I would do is apply Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye cream which is the perfect base for concealer. I have this issue where I feel that every time I apply concealer my under eye area gets darker and darker, and concealer is not something I’m willing to let go of, so I got this product for the purpose of using it as concealer base. However, there is an issue with this product if you start applying your concealer immediately after you applied it, your makeup is going to look greasy and flaky and all kind of things that you don’t want to see, you HAVE to wait at least 15 minutes before starting up with your makeup same goes with moisturizer.

fMoving on to the next step, I start by using MAC prep+prime to help increase the lifetime of my makeup. Now with all the fun not colorless stuff, first I would apply concealer on any blemishes or scars and also under my eyes, I recently purchased Chanel correction perfection concealer, I really like it however I still do believe nothing can top up my previous Cargo concealer that I’ve previously mentioned I’m really upset we no longer have it at Sephore, I don’t understand why every time I get hooked on something they shut it down, it seems that I jinx products *sorry producers* .. anyway I fell off subject there, for the perfect foundation I like to mix MAC studio Fix nc25 with Chanel Mat Lumiere 20 on my heart paw palette using MAC 190 brush . If you’re a mac user you would know that sometimes their foundation could get a bit to yellowyy and this is why I love mixing it with a lighter foundation to get the perfect coverage. After I’m done with the foundation I would blend some more using MAC 130SE brush. then to brighten up my eyes I apply a teeny bit of YSL radiant touch in the corner of my eyes. Because I used fake tan on my body my face need to be tanned as well, A spray of Soap & Glory Glow Getter

For the eyes, I used urban decay eyeshadow primer potion. The Eye shadows I used were by MAC Nylon and Tempting applied each using Bobbi brown Eyeshadow brush then blended them using MAC 217 brush. Then used my ultimate favorite eyeliner Penultimate eyeliner in Rapidblack & finally applied my new favorite mascara Limited edition MAC Opulash Optimum Black mascara.
