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!

Get Ready With Me: Bollywood Inspired Look

Hi friends,

We are almost at the end of the week which is rather exciting because I have a lot of pictures to take for all the ideas that are running around in my head for my YouTube and Blog! A few weekends ago, we had a dawat and I knew I just had to film for you guys. The only issue with filming the day that you are actually supposed to be going somewhere is TIMING! I never can seem to schedule myself accordingly to be done filming and be early or on time for the dawat. Even if I give myself 2-3 hours, something goes wrong – here is a list of a few things that can happen while I’m filming: my battery dies and I have to recharge it, my memory stick runs out and I have to load the video clips on my computer and then start again, or the sun starts to set and I need to set up my lights.. sometimes there are problems after problems! Regardless, I love doing it however I find that sometimes the idea that I have in my mind doesn’t always come to life. For instance, in this video I wanted to film my whole outfit and show you guys what I wore but because the dawat was at night, we weren’t getting good lighting and the camera just wasn’t focusing on the outfit how I would have liked it to. Anyways, enough rambling on, I hope you guys had a chance to see the video, if not click above and check it out!

This video was a Bollywood Inspired Look where my eyes were gold with heavy eyeliner and my face was contoured to the T. I added more glamor to the look by using my Lilly G. lashes as well as wearing some show stopping jewelry! Below you will find a list of my products that I used within the video, feel free to leave your comments  aboout any questions you may have.

Product List:

Mac – Paint Pot in Soft Ochre
Smashbox Shades of Fame Palette – Gold, Praline, Bliss

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.

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!
