How come whenever I come and visit the states, the amount of stuff I use decreases by a lot? I’m used to having around 7 products to deal with but when I’m in the states, I just have three?

Favorite Lippies (2)

img_4398

I decided to do another favorite lip products post because why not? You can never have too many favorite lippies. Two of them I have mentioned before that I really liked them, one of them is a new addition, and the last one I got like 3 years ago and never wore it.

The first one is a lip gloss, and I have talked about this lip gloss countless times. This is the Tara by Anastasia Beverly Hills. The consistency is amazing, and the quality is beyond amazing. It’s very comfortable, so you don’t need to worry about your hair constantly getting stuck to it. I never really like lip glosses, but the ones from Anastasia are to die for. I really like this shade because it is a very neutral shade, for me, it’s an everyday shade. I could wear this color for any look and it will complete the whole look. I definitely recommend.

If you have read my latest post, you would know that my favorite lip kit by Kylie is most definitely Posie K. I am a sucker for dark colors, and this is literally the perfect shade for dark pink. It’s not too dark or too pink, just perfect. This is my go to matte lipstick, in my opinion, I think it matches every look perfectly. But that always depends on what you like and what you don’t like.

I recently just got this metal matte by Kylie, and I am already obsessed. Very similar to her other lip kits, except this one is more creamier (if that makes sense at all). Comparing it to her other lip kits, this one doesn’t feel to dry on your lips. Her other lip kits is sometimes too uncomfortable to wear because of how dry it gets, but this one is perfect. It also lasts through the whole day, even when eating and drinking. I got the shade ‘Reign’ which I think is the best compared to the other two metals.

I bought this Sephora lipstick 3 or 4 years ago, when my I was somewhat interested in makeup but that faded quickly after a few days now. (wow look at me now) While writing this I realized that it is somewhat similar to Posie K, except a bit lighter. They both have somewhat the same pink shade, and they’re both matte. i really like this lipstick because it’s very comfortable to wear, sometimes I forget that I’m even wearing it. Although, if you put more than one layer then when you rub your lips together, it will start to create clumps and everything’s a mess. So only put one layer, cause then you’re good to go.

 

How I Remove My Makeup

makeueowoujos

I think we can all agree that removing our makeup can be a hassle right? We’re all just too lazy and we just want to wipe it off carelessly and jump straight into bed. We regret these decisions immediately when pimples start to show up on our skin a few days later. I’ve been using this routine for a week or so now and my skin has never felt so amazing.

Johson’s face care makeup wipes are my go to makeup wipes, I explained these wipes in detail on my Take Of Your Face For The Day. But these makeup wipes are amazing, I don’t really recommend these to sensitive skin type people because it does tend to burn, but it removes your makeup throughly.

garnier

Yes, I use another makeup wipe in my routine. But these makeup are much softer for the skin, I use Garnier wipes mostly to get rid of any access foundation around my hairline or neck that I may have missed earlier. (We don’t want foundation streaks all over our white pillows now).

I have been obsessed with this face wash recently, it just leaves my skin refreshed after a day of baked face makeup. (What?) This is good enough to use daily, even though its an exfoliant face wash. Exfoliant face wash are much rather to be used twice or thrice a week, but the bottle says its perfectly fine for daily. There are these tiny exfoliants that are soft yet rough to the skin, it feels like it’s removing all the gunk from your face.

I barely moisturize my face, mostly because my skin is oily and my face isn’t need of moisturizing in this heat in Kuwait anytime soon. But after using two brands of makeup wipes and an exfoliant face wash, I think it’s the perfect time to use it. This Nivea Moisturizer is super thick, so if you’re more into lightweight, then this isn’t for you. It does really moisturize your face for days, but I use it almost everyday because I love it so much.

Last but certainly not least, is my all time essential Anti-Spot Gel by Clean and Clear. I have talked about this more than 50 times on this blog, and I will never stop. I swear by this product, gets rid of your pimples in two days, I just love it. I highly recommend it to everyone, you will love it.

Makeup Must Haves

A beginner or not, I feel like these types of posts are really helpful. Either they give you a head start on what makeup products to buy, or just simply if you’re looking for something new or interesting. This post will consist of products that I think not only will make your makeup look better, but also help it last longer. So without further ado, let’s just get into this post.

Lid primers are definitely something you need to add on to your makeup routine. The first few days I did my makeup without any primer was a total nightmare. My eyeshadow would be a complete mess, my eyeshadows won’t blend in properly and the pigmentation that the makeup brand promises does not show any effect. You can either just use the lid primer and go straight to eyeshadow, or what I like to do is to set it using any light shade eyeshadow and this will help to make eyeshadow blending much easier and faster.

I would use my  beauty blender like a crazy woman when trying to blend in my lid primer. I would just stab my lid which results in hurting my eyeball, and it would leave streaks and it did just did not look good at all. I was so fed up with hurting my eyeballs that I just took my foundation brush and used it. This technique changed my life completely. It left off a smooth finish to my lids, and it was soft. Even though this is a foundation brush, it will help to blend in any cream products giving a perfect finish look.

If you don’t like liquid foundation or any foundation in a bottle really, then this product is targeting you. We’ve been across compact powders, which is basically powder that is compacted. A lot of you guys might be wondering, powders can barely have enough coverage. I though the same thing, but we thought wrong. This Smashbox powder gives you enough coverage, not too much, just enough. It helps to give off that natural look, making sure not to cover everything, because what’s natural in that? And sometimes i just like to use this to set anything really.

Speaking of setting powders, I’m pretty sure a lot of you guys have heard great reviews about the Laura Mercier setting powder and so on and so forth. So I’m not going to go into too much detail, because we all know that it does it’s job and it’s great and everyone needs it. But this powder really does brighten up my face, my face goes from dead to alive in two seconds, well technically 5 minutes. Gotta love baking you know?

I know you’re all probably over the powder products but I promise you that this is the last one. Blush is important, whether you’re going for a natural look or a night out look, you need blush. Not only are the blushes just so pretty, but it will give color to your face. That’s all I have to say about blushes.

As promised, we’re over the powder products. It’s time for some more eye products. If you have small eyes, then you would know the struggle of trying to figure out how to make them look bigger. Searching high and low on Youtube until beauty gurus start saying to use a white color for your water line. I did exactly that but I saw no result whatsoever. I decided to try out a black one, I finally realized what I was missing in my makeup look. So if you still have not tried it out, then get your hands on it or something similar.

Tarte Lash Liner

Last but certainly not least, eye liner. Just like I said before about how those products complete the look, this is the same thing. If you were to compare last month’s winged eyeliner to today, then you would see a drastic change. And all thanks to this eye liner, this eye liner is great for beginners. I have tried multiple eyeliners, but this one is the best. It glides on very easily, and doesn’t move around. So if you have shaky hands, like me, then this eyeliner is perfect for you.

Favorite Perfumes

IMG_1816.JPG

There are fragrances that smell amazing and you can’t choose on which one to get, and then there are perfumes where they just smell.. too much. I don’t know about you but I hate fragrances that smell like sweet candy or very sweet strawberry, I’m more into vanilla and a really soft sweet smell (Like not those really strong ones) Anyway, these are my 4 top favorites perfumes of all time.

Okay so the first two are Ari by Ariana Grande and Chanel Chance, these two smell amazing. They both smell like fruits and floral, so if you are into that you should definitely try them out. The Ari one smells more like marshmallow and a little bit of sweet, but not too much. The Chance smells more on the feminine side, it’s way more softer and lighter.

The last two are Gilly Hicks Point Piper and Aeropostale Sugar Rush, they’re both very elegant and simple. Gilly Hicks is very simple and elegant, it’s great for the beach, and it has a fruity scent as well, but fresh not the artificial ones. The Sugar Rush does smell like one of those perfumes when it’s just a bit too sweet but it’s amazing. It’s very girly, flowery, and fruity.

Thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed. All the love.

How I Apply Liquid Lipsticks

IMG_1771.JPG

Just to be clear, I’m not telling YOU how to put on liquid lipsticks, this is just how I do it. You can get tips and tricks and an idea of why I use these products. These are just 4 simple steps it’s not overwhelming or anything, that’s just how I do it. Let’s get started.

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

First step: I’ll start off by scrubbing my lips with a lip scrub. You can use any lip scrub but I definitely recommend the Sugar Lip Scrub. It is such an amazing scrub it will leave your lips feeling smooth and will make applying lipsticks or even lip balms much more easier. This will help to get rid of any dead cells and dead skin on your lips.

Second step: I’ll then wipe off the extra lip scrub from my lips by using any “soft” wipes. I’d much rather clean off the excess lip scrub with wipes than water because usually I would rub really hard with the water. (If that makes sense at all) I suggest the Herban Essentials wipes if you’re interested, they smell amazing and they’re very smooth to the skin.

Third step: Then, I’ll add on some lip balm to get my lips smooth and ready for the liquid lipstick. This will really help with putting on liquid lipstick because it will help applying the liquid lipsticks so much easier and smoother. And a plus, when the liquid lipsticks is all matte, it won’t feel dry or anything because of the lip balm.

Forth step: The last final step is to apply the liquid lipstick. With all the steps that I have done, it will make applying liquid lipstick so much easier. The current liquid lipstick that I have been obsessing over is the Kat Von D in the shade Lolita. I have talked about this product in my May favorites if you want to check it out.

Thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed. All the love.
