Today’s FAB Makeup Looks <3

Makeup, clothes, bags and SHOES what can I say I am a madly and deeply IN LOVE with fashion. Fashion now falls under a lot of things, that incudes FOOD the way furnish your house and even the books you read (if you know me back in high school…then you know I was a BOOK WARM). Yes I said it books, books come in and go out of fashion but literature remains. Just like in fashion, fashion might come and go but style is forever! ❤

For the upcoming blog posts (the next 3 or 4) will be mostly about makeup. I will be showing and talking about how I applied the makeup and review some of them. Will let me tell you a little secret I LOVE MAKEUP as much as SHOES! That coming me from me is a HUGE thing. So promise me that is will be between you and I. :p

Anyway let me go to the good stuff, in the post I will be talking about TWO makeup styles. One was I was wearing yesterday but recreated the look today. The other one is a FUN SPRING look that I hope you guys would enjoy. First I will show you what I was wearing yesterday then I will go more about the make. So stay tuned and keep on reading!

Jeans, something I don’t do often

In this picture I am wearing:

  • Mustered top: H&M
  • Brown skull scarf: Artalkw (check it out Instagram)
  • Jeans: American Eagle
  • Shoes: Style Boutique (a store based in Kuwait)

I wore this look yesterday for university. I need something fast because I had to go to school early to print out some stuff. I knew that I wanted to wear my FABULOUS shoes that Style Boutique gave me. So I stayed most of the morning wonder what to wear with it, and then I told myself you can’t go wrong with jeans. I hope I was right, because I liked to believe I was. To check out my blog post about Style Boutique Grand Opening of their new branch press here.

 

Smokey Grey Eyes

Now let me go on and tell you how I applied my makeup for that day. Below you will see a close-up of the makeup.

Morning dark makeup

I usally don’t wear dark eye makup in the day, especially in the mornings. However, that day I was inspired by dark grey and I really wanted to use my Too Faced pallet “Matte Eye Shadow collection.

For applying my makeup I used my PERFECTLY PLUSH BRUSH KIT Essentia that I got from MAC’s limited edition collection. I call these my personal brushes and I don’t use them on anyone but myslf.

Primers and Concealer!

From left to right:

  • Make up For Ever: HD High Definition Primer (Green)

There are many different primers out there for different reasons. The most famous ones are the primers that hide PORES. However due to hormones and the sun we get redness around our face, and that is when a GREEN primer becomes handy. I REALLY enjoyed using this primer under; tinted moisturizer, press-powder and concealer. It worked amazingly! Not only did it hide the redness on face but it kept my face SUPER hydrated. The plus thing about this is that a little dote goes a long way! When I run out of this product I have to RUN and get it AGAIN!! 😀

  • Sephora Concealer: Medium 07

I have so many concealers that it isn’t funny anymore :p. Anyway, I was at my friend’s house and I was applying makeup at her place, the only type of concealer she had was liquid. When I applied it under my eyes POP out more and gave more light under them. Not only that, because it was liquid it wasn’t very harsh to pat under the eyes. So when I was at Sephora I purchased a liquid concealer, it works great. Would I run to the store for this? No. Why? Because I found out that most liquid concealers do the same job that I’m looking for :P.

  • Too Faced: Shadow Insurance (anti-crease eye shadow primer)

No matter what brand of eye-shadow we are using sometimes it’s HARD to keep it in place all DAY. This is where an eye-shadow primer comes into place. I’ve been trying to get my hands on this primer for months; my local Sephora was out of stock. Now that I have it I REALLY DO LOVE IT! It works like WOW! It makes any eye-shadow true colour come out and it does prevent creasing. Another thing I found out was that it made cream eye-shadows dry FASTER! 😀

Grey Eye-shadows!

  • Sephero Eye shadow: intense black N*01  light and dark grey

Winter is here and I thought it would be nice to make a grey smoky-eye look. I wanted a grey that wasn’t matt but I didn’t want it have much glitter.  This is why I LIKED this pallet; the eye-shadows had a smooth stain finish but still a bit matt. I this grey pallet became my EVERDAY eye-shadow for winter! 😀

  • Sephora Moonshadow baked palette

As I was shopping for make-up, I bumped into this SWEET glitter eye-shadows. My first insect was “I NEED TO TAKE THESE BABES HOME!” I loved the idea that in one paltte I was able to find 10 AMAZING different SUPER glittery eye-shadows that I can apply in an method to achieve any intensity of glitter I wanted. To make the glitter stand out the best method is to activate the eye-shadow with water and use a silicon make-up brush (look below). I love the quality and design of this pallet!
