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.

1Before there were diamonds, before there was de la Renta, chocolate was my best friend. Today I had a crave for glow and I knew exactly how to fulfill it; My camera and little bites of ferrero rocher..

It’s not just my stomach that was doing the craving. It was my face too, it’s pretty simple no beauty sleep no beauty. But, there’s always a but and there’s always a replacement; little magic from YSL concealer (Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat) and Dior ultimate shimmering powder(Rose diamond)..

Untitled-44Golden metallic snake-embossed leather shined through my closet so it had to be my purse for the night..

I had to leave ADR sunnies behind, it’s January not June. Nevertheless, it’s always lovely to look at.

4J’adore fragrances by Christan Dior, is not my first choice of a perfume, but I love the smell of it, because it reminded me of my mom’s beauty, when I was little and she’d be getting ready for work looking all glowy and glamorous, her final touches would always be little sprinkles of J’adore and my final step of getting ready is remembering the beauty of her..

new1My first choice of a perfume though would be Jasmin Rouge by Tom Ford, I will never get over the beauty of the scent -absolute stunner-.

It has been a while since I’ve looked back on what used to be my favorite teen brand (Juicy couture) I don’t even remember where I’ve placed the jeweleries that I once used to love. One thing however that has never left my sight is the cupcake necklace that was given to me from a dear friend in high school on one of the nicest birthdays I’ve had, I wear it all the time to restore my teen blaze.

Topshop Makeup

Today I bring you one of my favorite makeup products by Topshop.What’s in my makeup case and what I wish to have in it soon. Starting from Face to eyes, lips & nails. If you haven’t tried Topshop makeup line, you really shouldn’t be waiting any longer, each product has a sensational vibe to it.

My two favorite face products are “Skin glow” which is an amazing highlighter to your skin that highlights and boost radiance. The other one is “Cheeks” I’ve got it in Prism but I’m planning to tryout more colors from this product because I absolutely love how it defines and highlight cheeks. It can be used to lips and any other body spot that you’d like to highlight.

Even their blush is interesting and absolutely gorgeous I’ve got it in “Pinch” and more colors will be tested soon. Topshop makeup has inner and outer beauty, there are so many blushers that seems to contain beautiful and strong colors but when applying them there is really nothing and they’re absolutely useless.

To be honest I don’t use the cream eyeshadow a lot, but that’s only because I’m more of a clean eye kind of a person. But if you are up to party you should definitely try them out. I’ve got “Darkness” which is basically black, “Heavy metal” which is metallic grey (my favorite), “Emerald city” which is green and finally “velvet” which is purple.

I didn’t try topshop lipsticks because all the colors I’ve wanted were out of stock and unfortunately the online store does not ship directly to Qatar and I’ve had it with aremx so I’d rather wait for my next trip to London or Dubai. Moving on to  what’s on my wishlist, everything on my wishlist is on this look.

And their nailpolish is pretty awesome as well, my favorites: Daydream, world’s end and green room.

Let’s Talk Beauty

What is your favorite beauty brands and products? Mine are all here I’ve tried every foundation out there and ended up liking those six. I’ve always been a MAC user but it was such a terrible idea to use it on daily basis that’s when I started looking for something more suitable for daytime:

1) Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua is so beautiful on the skin and you can’t even feel it on your face

2)Tom ford foundation can actually be used for daytime and evenings depending on how you go with it

3) Giorgio Armani Face Fabric foundation is my least favorite because my skin is too sensitive toward it but it’s the most soft and comfortable foundation I’ve ever used

however for evenings and special occasions my list changes to:

1) Chanel Mat Lumiere

2) MAC Studio Fix Fluid

3) Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk

I love tanning products I wont let a summer pass by without getting tanned!

my favorite tanning spry is Glow Getter by Soap & Glory it looks amazing on the skin and it can be washed easily

for eye shadows I’m always going for kind of the same colors but my favorite eyeshadow brands are definitely Dolce and gabbana, Bobbi brown, Inglot and MAC

I love watching tutorials on youtube and here is my favorite one, it’s amazing how she can transform herself into any celebrity.. Who’s your favorite?
