New Year’s Eve Makeup Look 2017

It’s that time of year again, where the old year is coming to an end and a new year begins. I hope that you all get to enjoy your new year’s celebrations and have lots of fun! I ‘ve created a makeup look that I want to share with you guys that I think would be great for a New Year’s Party, and guess what? It only took 3 eyeshadows to complete the eye makeup (plus eyeliner and lashes)! The eyes are glittery-smoky and most of all FABOULS! Well, I don’t think you can ever go wrong with a smokey-cat eye :p

Back To Blogging and New MAC Lipsticks

It’s been a long time since I’ve written a  blog post. So much has happened, that there is so a lot I would to share with you! It feels great to be back and be able to share with you all more. I have learned so much, not just personally but believe it or not there is so much I learned fashion wise as well. My goal now is to inspire others (doesn’t mean I’m saying that they should do what I did), to be not only their true selves but that it’s okay to have fail at times.

As some of you might know, that I got married (its been about 2 years and a half) I’ve been busy with my married life and moving around the world. Which means now that not only will I be posting about my hobbies and interests, but also some social topics that focuses on marriage, family and friends. I will be posting on my blog daily, and I’m back on posting videos on YouTube.

 

Now let me go on and talk about the second topic, the new MAC lipsticks that I got. They were a gift from my husband for my birthday while we were in Dubai, He knows how much I LOVE MAC lipsticks! I went in and got 7 colours, 2 of them are a repurchase and the other 5 are totally new to me that I either have been eyeing for a long time or when I tried them in the store I fell in love with them and wanted them.

As you can see all of these colours are in the “nude” or pink family expect for one that is red. From right to left:

  1. MOCHA, a satin finish,  this lipstick is  my 5th repurchase my ultimate favorite one coming right after KIND OF SEXY which I have 2 of each.
  2.  SEE SHEER, a luster finish, this colour caught my eye when I was in the store last time, to me it looked like a cooper-peachy colour that didn’t look rusty which made me want it.
  3. SNOB, a satin finish, a repurchase, this lipstick is what I call the perfect pink to go from day to night by just changing your eye makeup and it isn’t to Barbie.
  4. SHANGHAI SPICE, a cremesheen, to me I felt this is a glossy version to the KIND OF SEXY lipstick, which is why I orginally first bought it to apply it on top of it, but it does also look great on its own.
  5. TAUPE, a matte finish, this colour is one of those colours that has been all over the internet as one of the “in MAC lipsticks” right next to VELVET TEDDY thanks to Kylie Jenner. I tried VELVET TEDDY it just didn’t look great on me so that’s why I got  TAUPE its a good brown colour that doesn’t wash me out.
  6. RUSSIAN RED, a matte finish, you might have heard the saying “you’re either a RUBY WOO kind of girl or a RUSSIAN RED kind of girl” and I was always the RUBY WOO kind of girl, but know I want a red colour that is deep not bright and I feel RUSSIAN RED is the perfect lipstick to fall under that description.
  7. MEHR, a matte finish, another colour that has been out there that many fashionistas and makeup gurus have been talking about. I like this lipstick becuase its a dusty-rose pink that makes look youthful.
Swatches on my arm

                                                               swatches on my arm

From left to right, MEHR, RUSSIAN RED, TAUPE, SHANGHAI SPICE, SNOB, SEE SHEER and MOCHA.

 

Hope you enjoyed my blog post and look forward to my upcoming posts.

 

Stay You,

Cartier Event, Bridal Exhibition Kuwait (Part 2)

Cartier is at fault of many love stories that have happened in the past decade. It will still go to inspire many to fall in love, not only with the diamonds but with the person that gives it to them. When reading the stories of the beauty icons that wore Cartier, it seem’s like your reading a fairytale. This might sound cliché, that’show we tend to feel when we listen to marvouls love stories that make the heart beat slow for it cannot belife that life can peresent it.

When that special someone has that special jewel for your beautiful skin.

 

Some of the famous women that wore Cartier for historic events are:

  • Queen Elizabeth II
  • Princess Grace Kelly
  • Elizabeth Taylor
  • Kate Middleton (Duchess of Cambridge)

Most of these women are known for their styles and beauty. They haven’t only affected us fashion wise but made us girls dream of being princess and more empowered. We have come to respect these women and admire them. I for one am a HUGE fan of Elizabeth Taylor and think that she is the beautiful woman.

Queen Elizabeth wearing Williamson Diamond brooch

The Williamson Diamond is known to be the BEST pink diamond ever discovered. It was found by the Canadian geologist and royalist Dr. John Thorborn Williams who is the diamond is named after. It was found at Mwadui mine in Tanganyika that was owned by Dr. John. He presented the uncut stone weighing at 54.5 CARATS to then Princess Elizabeth as a wedding gift.

After that the diamond was cut by Briefel and Lemer of Clerkenwell into a 23.6 CARATS in a brilliant round shape. At first the diamond was considered to be used at the coronation. Instead the dazzling round shaped diamond was placed as the centre of a brooch of a jonquil flower designed by Frederick Mew Cartier in 1953. The brooch contains 170 small brilliant-cut diamonds, 12 baguette-cut diamonds and 21 marquise diamonds, which were used to form the petals, stalk and the leaves of this brooch. Now that’s a BROOH worth having!

Grace Kelly wearing her engagement ring of the film set High Society

Princess Grace Kelly’s engagement was itself as one of the GLAMOURISE events in modern day history. Not only because a stylish Hollywood actress was getting married to a prince, not just a prince but the prince of Monaco. What really made the headlines then was the ring that Grace Kelly was given. The ring was a FABOULSE 10.47 CARTS the first BIG ring to be given out by a European Monarchy. The reason why Prince Rainier III gave that big ring to Grace Kelly was so he could fit in of the glamour of Hollywood and there well known engagement rings.

On January 1956 the prince gave and announced his engagement to Grace Kelly. The ring that he presented here was platinum from Cartier, where it had an emerald-cut diamond 10.47 CARATS with two baguette-cut diamonds on each side. This ring was perfect showing the delicacy of the actress and that it showed the belief that Grace had that LESS IS MORE when it comes to style. THAT IS AN ENGAGMENT RING WE ALL GIRLS DREAM OF!

 

Elizabeth Taylor at Podium to Present Academy Award

Elizabeth Taylor wearing the “Burton Diamond” at Princess Grace Kelly’s 40th birthday party at Monaco

History has shown us so many great love stories, sadly most are fiction. However there is love story that is true and has inspired other lovers, the love that we between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. The love they had lasted for decades even though they have been divorced twice. When asked they use to refer to each other as their greats love even though both have remarried.

Richard Burton bought a ring from Cartier that then it cost him 1.1 million dollars, all just he insulted Elizabeth’s hands. Then after she saw that the diamond 69.42 CARATS was too BIG for a ring so she had made into a necklace.

 The stone was found in Premier Mine in South Africa in 1966 which weighed 241 CARTS! It was then cut by Harry Winston to 69.42 CARTS into a pear shape. Burton bought the diamond from Cartier to present it to Taylor. I personally wouldn’t say no to that necklace, would you?

Kate Middleton waring the Cartier Halo Tiara on her wedding to Prince William

The Halo Tiara was made in 1936 by Cartier and was purchased by the Duke of York, who later became King George VI before 3 week becoming king (Elizabeth’s Father) for his Duchess wife Queen Elizabeth’s mother (known later as Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother). Queen Elizabeth lent Kate Middleton the Halo Tiara which was given to her on her 18th birthday by her mother.

The tiara was borrowed then by The Queen Mother’s daughter Princess Margaret to wear the Halo Scroll Tiara to the 1953 coronation. This is when then the Queen Elizabeth was crowned. Later in 1973 it was lent to Queen Elizabeth’s daughter Princess Anne before she received her own tiara.

Many years later the Halo Tiara was lent to Kate Middleton to wear on her wedding day, the she married Prince William. So you see this tiara has a long history and we very will kept in the family. The question is will I or you be next to borrow it? :p (fingers crossed :p )

 

Here are just some of the amazing-historic jewellery that Cartier has made and sold. We alone that there still more to come and we cannot wait to see what other remarkable diamonds we will be able to see. However, the real question, who’s next to be wearing a LEGENDAY piece from Cartier.

 

Stay Lovely,

KK Kollection at Dorthy Perkins Kuwait

The past week the Kim Kardashion Kollection came to Kuwait, not only that but even Kim herself was here! Sadly I didn’t have the chance to meet her or even see her. HOWEVER, I was able to go to Dorothy Perkins and get a look at and get what I wanted from the collection. The night before the line was lunched, I went the online store of Dorothy Perkins to see what I liked and plan on getting them. My mum woke me up at 6am so that we can go drop of my brothers to school then go to the Avenues (it’s a mall in Kuwait). We arrived at the mall just 30 minutes before the doors where open, the doors opened at 8am and all of us went running inside to get or hand on the FABOULSE pieces! ❤

A Movember to Remember

Some might know what Movember means and what it stands for, here in Kuwait not all of us knew about. I myself didn’t know what it meant and what it really stands for. However, I went on the internet and goggled it. I found out what it was about and what was the TRUE cause behind it. YES I was truly amazed!

The information that I am about to share with you has been copied of Wikipedia:

“Movember (a portmanteau word from moustache and “November“) is an annual, month-long event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of prostate cancer and other male cancer and associated charities. The Movember Foundation runs the Movember charity event, housed at Movember.com.[1] The goal of Movember is to “change the face of men’s health.

Origins

Seven Nightly News aired a story in 1999 featuring a group of young men in Adelaide, South Australia who originated the name “Movember” and the idea of growing moustaches for charity during the month of November.[12] In the news report, members of the Adelaide-based “Movember Committee” explained how they came up with the idea for Movember one night in the pub. The group started with 80 men from Adelaide and interstate, and aimed to raise money for the RSPCA through selling T-shirts in what they termed “Growing whiskers for whiskers”.[12] The committee remains uninvolved with the wider Movember movement and claims to have coined the term “Movember” in 1999

In 2004, an unrelated group in Melbourne, Victoria organised an event where 30 men would grow a moustache for 30 days in order to raise awareness for prostate cancer and depression in men. This group would later become the Movember Foundation charity.

The Movember Foundation has since raised $174-million worldwide after spreading to South Africa and Europe, reaching North America in 2006.[6][7] In 2010, participants in the United States alone raised over $7.5 million.

Controversies

In November 2007 at Scots College in Wellington, New Zealand, several graduating students were banned from end-of-year prizes for growing moustaches and the college threatened to ban a senior student from their NCEA examinations (official secondary school qualification) for growing a moustache during November.

In 2007, the Movember Foundation events were featured on Australian tabloid current affairs program Today Tonight, which accused the foundation of spending a disproportionate amount on running costs and high salaries for its directors. The financial summary of the Australian 2008 Movember campaign listed campaign costs (administration and fundraising) as being 8% of the total amount raised.In 2007, campaign costs were listed as 9% of total amount raised.”

Will I did my own contribution for this month Movember, a way to show my support. The main idea of this month is to grow a moustache (will men should at least). Okay I MIGHT have some peach fuzz on my upper lip, but that is NOT ENOUGH to show my support for the cause :p. So I went on and created my own looks of moustaches. Hope you like them as much as I enjoyed creating them :D.

My four moustache looks for Movember!

These moustache looks that I have created are inspired by some pictures that I have seen over the internet. I know they are funny and are over exaggerated, but hey lets create something fun for all of us to enjoy :D. The concept behind these styles comes from men that have different hair colour and fashion styles towards moustaches. I hope you enjoy these looks and please COMMENT which is your favorite LOOK! 😀

The other reason why I created these styles was for a contest here in Kuwait. The contest is sponsored by a Kuwaiti magazine called “City Pages”. To check out their magazine go to the their website CityPages !

Miley’s Cut!

What wa she thinking??

Okay we have seen celebrities that lose their minds and do wild things to themselves, remember that time Britney Spears shaved her head? Or when Anglina Jolie and her former husband Billy Bob got each other’s names tattooed on themselves and then got divorced within 3 years! But let’s look at Miley who’s best known for her Disney days as Hannah Montana. As you can see the girl is all grown up and engaged to Liam Hemsworth at her only being 19 years old and him 22.

So what is the true reason for now the “grown up” Miley’s new hair cut? Sources say that she donated her hair for cancer. Now that looks very sweet and very nice thing of her to do. On the other hand I can’t stop thinking that the “true” reason for this is not that. Did Cyrus do this because she wanted to be on the spotlight again? Come on celebrities live on the lime light right?

Anyway the point of my article is, what do you think about her new hair cut? Will you be bold enough to do it?

Stay lovely,

N
