Eid Inspired Makeup Tutorial | Featuring Dalphies

IMG_8139

Hi loves!

Recently, I’ve partnered up with the owner of http://www.dalphies.com to present to you guys, this Eid inspired makeup look. Who is Dalphies might you ask? Well, they are an e-commerce website that specializes in unique and trendy collections consisting of south asian attire and jewellery! The owner of Dalphies was nice enough to send me some beautiful pieces to use in my looks, from matha pathi’s to tikka’s – so pretty, unique and perfect for those glammed out looks I love to do. Another great factor about the jewellery was that they were light and not pulling down on my ears (like other heavy south asian pieces -__- lol).

Now don’t get me wrong, this look doesn’t just have to be worn on Eid, you can definitely use it in your summer bollywood weddings or typical summer late night dawats. If you think the lashes are too much, feel free to use a different pair or just wear your own natural lashes with a touch of mascara. Thanks to tape, this look ended up being so neat and clean – definitley give it a try!

Makeup Tutorial: Spring Look

Hey girl heeeeey,

GAWD, it feels like forever since I’ve last blogged – not even going to come up with any excuses, it’s basically because I suck.

This look is something that I would wear on an everyday basis (besides the falsies) and I think that anyone can rock it! This tutorial will leave you feeling light, fresh and super bright and it may just have some heads turning around! Also, I wanted to give a big huge shout out to my girl Muffy for sending me over so much Dior goodies – I love it all!  Follow her on Instagram: mafruha_mua – Now without further a do, let’s list those products!

Trip to Florida + My Collective Beauty Haul!

6A few weeks ago, I decided I needed a little mini vacay and went to Florida to visit my cousins. Normally, our mini vacations are very hectic because we’re attempting to fit so many activities within a few days. This time, we decided to take it really easy and just relax for the 1 week that I was there. We basically ate a lot of food, watched movies and of course … shopped!

Now, the shopping in America is way better then Canada (as I am sure you all know). Every single time I go to Florida, I tend to buy an extra suitcase to fit in all of my shopping. Last December, we bought a lot of things for our new home – pillows, throws, candles etc. This time, I focused mostly on cosmetics and beauty products. I went to Ulta, Sephora, TJ Maxx, Walgreens and CVS where I found the most affordable and nicest blushes, lipsticks and even eyelashes. With that being said, I obviously had to make a new haul video about it!

In addition, I’ve posted some pictures of my trip down below. Enjoy!

Purple Smokey Eye Tutorial

Hi dolls!
I hope everyone is doing well on this beautiful Wednesday! It seems that I am always writing blogs on Wednesdays… mid-way through the week – WHY NOT!?

This past weekend I uploaded a new look on my YouTube channel – a beautiful purple and black smokey eye. Now I know this look is extremely dramatic and most of you are going to say “that’s so much make up!” – well no one is asking you to wear it on a daily basis, LOL. I wore this look to a wedding, matched with a black lace sari. Wearing simple colors like black, beige and white will make a look like this pop! I also kept my hair very simple and just lightly curled.
Keep in mind that you can do this with any color you like – you don’t have to use the purple that I did – I just thought it was beautiful! I hope you guys try this look and let me know how it goes; I also hope that you enjoy the video! See below for the product list.

Evening Bollywood Makeup Tutorial

 

photo 3 copy

Hi Everyone!!

Over the weekend, it was my friends Gaye Holud.. and can I just add that she looked like Princess Jasmine!? Absolutely gorgeous!! For her holud, I decided to wear a pink & purple coloured shalwar kameez and with that, I filmed a brand new make up tutorial!

I kept the colors pretty subtle on my face because I didn’t want to look like a clown, especially considering that my outfit was already so bright and colorful. I started with basic foundation and then moved onto my eyes. The eyeshadow was pretty subtle but my lashes made the look a little more glamorous! (Unfortunately I had translucent powder on one of my eyes throughout the whole video and only noticed when I watched it at the end) – it’s all good though, no shame here!

At the end of my look, I decided to try my new purple lipstick from NYX called Pandora. Unfortunately the colour was a little too dark for me so I decided to put on my favourite bright pink lipstick and was fully satisfied with the look =]

See below for a list of all the products used:

EOS Lip Balm
Monistat Chafing Gel (Primer)

Glamorous Pink Lips!

Hi dolls!

Hope everyone is having a faaaabulous long weekend! So yesterday, my husband and I had 2 dawats to attend (family parties), we had one for lunch all the way in Hamilton and then one for dinner in Toronto, WHICH ONLY MEANT ONE THING! #makeuptime. I had to create a look that was going to last me all day long and still look fresh. What better way to do this then to add a nice vibrant bold lip? When working with a bright bold lip, I like to go lighter on the eyes (most days) and that’s why my eye make up is pretty neutral. The makeup lasted all day long (especially my lipstick), although I had some fall out from my covergirl lash blast mascara. Overall, I was really happy with the look and I hope you guys love it! See below for the list of products and check out the video on youtube of course!

My Everyday Look

Hi dolls!

So it’s been quite some time since I have had time to blog but I’m happy to say I’m back… WITH MY FIRST YOUTUBE VIDEO! #bigdeal

I’ve been wanting to start making Youtube videos for quite some time but it’s not only challenging but can of course can also be controversial. Regardless, I put all negativity (that can come in the future) aside and said to myself, I’m gonna do it!

My first video is a tutorial for an easy everyday make up look! This is a look that I do on a daily basis (sometimes I cut the skin enhancer and Ben Nye out of my daily routine because it can get a little ‘cakey’). Other then that, it’s a quick simple and easy look that only takes about 10 minutes. A little bit about my skin: I have pretty bad eczema as well as roseacea which has left my skin to be dry and red most days! This look helps me cover that up completely with just a few steps.

Thanks so much for all of the great feedback and questions about my makeup! I wanted to share my product details with you guys, if there’s anything I left out, feel free to let me know below in the comments!
