Simple glam.

I tried to half way close my eyes like Billie Eilish does, i might say that i can do it but it looks so unreal on her. It’s all because of the crystal blue eyes she has.

Moving on, i was so sick of studying and sitting around that I did a simple makeup look. I used moisturiser before I started just so my skin is smooth and I don’t have dry patches underneath. They look absolutely horrible, so if you have dry patches, moisturise. I used the makeup revolution concealer in c5, I don’t use it frequently but whenever I do, it reminds me how much I love it. It’s absolutely amazing, it’ll cover up your dark circles even if you didn’t sleep in two days. It’s that good.

I was feeling simple for my eyes so I went for a simple matt brown eye. I feel like brown on brown eyes looks very monotonous, but I didn’t feel like doing anything other than brown. I used the makeup revolution palette in Iconic Division. I got if from Daraz.pk for 900 RS / 6US$. It has lots of greens and oranges but I felt like brown was the easiest. I’ll definitely do a orange look in spring and a green one probably very soon.

I used the light brown shade in my crease, while packing the deeper brown all over my lid. Blended the edges and used the lash paradise for mascara. I wanted to do a winged liner but I dropped the idea because we were getting late to go to Ginyaki.

I used the Primark highlighter in 03 champagne, 3.99£ / 799 RS. Finished the lip with the Pixi liquid lipstick in Au Naturelle. I absolutely LOVE Pixi liquid lipsticks. They feel extremely comfortable and are pretty longlasting. I got it from Marks & Spencer for 14£ on Tati’s recommendation and I love them. I don’t know where to buy Pixi in Pakistan but I’m definitely looking forward to trying out more things from them. Although, I do have a highlighter from Pixi that i’m in love with.

I definitely loved how this turned out, it’s natural yet glam. I haven’t been consistent with my blogs these days and it’s all because of my mids, the last is on the 20th, I’ll definitely write more in the winter vacations.

Thank you so much for reading! Xx ❤️

90’s Grunge makeup.

I’ve been so obsessed with decades I wasn’t born into: music, fashion, and makeup. I was listening to Nirvana when Diamonds Are Forever by Sabrina Carpenter started playing. It’s a super catchy song, i’d recommend listening to it.

Grunge makeup has always been so attractive to me. I’d never think I could pull it off, but.. i’m not mad at it. It’s basically playing with cool tones and adding a pop of color.

I basically wanted to do a cool toned brown and put some blue in the centre. That’s what I had in mind and that’s what I did. I used the Morphe 35W and Urban Decay x Gwen Stafani palette. I’m sorry if you’re expecting another palette than Morphe, but it’s affordable and I don’t really use eyeshadows on a daily, so it’s stupid to splurge.

Although, I might order me some Jeffree Star goodies. I’m so excited for that, fingers crossed. I primed my eyelids with the LA Girl Pro concealer in light beige. After that, I went with a light brown, blended that and straight to the cool tone. I took that all over my crease, and packed it on my lid. I used a hint of black to darken the outer corner.

For the lower lash, I did the same. Then, I took the blue shade, Danger from the Urban Decay x Gwen Stafani palette and put it in the inner corners and 25% on the lid. Took a pencil brush and dragged it along the lower lash. I wish I had silver glitter to make it pop, but I didn’t so.

Lash Paradise in Exactic by L’oreal. I feel like it smudges after 5-6 hours and also is really messy to apply. I’m not a fan, but it gives me crazy length.. i’m torn. I’m very much on the fence. Also, didn’t use a shit tone here, so it probably looks weird. Concealer was Makeup Revolution in C5, hands down, best concealer. I should’ve gotten C4, but.. all for the sake of making it work.

Used the Sephora Pro highlighting palette in Cool, in the shade Chromosphere. It definitely gives you amazing results when used with your fingers, i’d definitely recommend. Read it here!

Finished it off with, Huda Beauty’s liquid lipstick in Flirt. It’s a very cool toned brown and went amazing with the look. If one eye in the picture looks like it has nothing on, blame the iphone camera. Also, the sunlight.

I love doing cool toned makeup, and I’d definitely incorporate some. The necklace is H&M’s and i got it off a insta store, i’ll tag them in my post. I’m ready for a grunge concert.

I literally can’t thankyou enough for reading, it motivates me to write and the fact that people from all over the world are reading makes it so amazing! Thankyou so much! Xx ❤️

Sephora PRO highlighter: worth it or nah?

Recently I bought another highlight. Highlighter is hands down, my favourite. I probably don’t need as many as I own, but I’m telling you, highlighter addiction is real. The glow is no joke.

As I saw it, I was completely sold. I didn’t even bother to check the inside or look at how blinding it was. The packaging made me bought it, honestly. It’s holo and it’s crazy mesmerising. I stare and play with it all the time.

The formula is a gel/creme. It has five shades and are all cool. I bought the cool toned palette because the warm was dark for me and I don’t have that many cool highlights anyways. All the more reason to buy. The shades range from clear gel, natural finish and a somewhat blinding highlight.

You can definitely lay down the gel, and then put on a powder to blind everyone in your surroundings and also the aliens on Venus. However, I didn’t use the powder on top. I was feeling natural today. Well, sort of. I started with my real techniques highlighter brush and applied the shade, chromosphere and topped it off with the clear lunar glaze.

I used the brush but I feel like fingers would work best. If you’re into super natural highlights, this is the shit for you. Highly recommend. 8/10.

But if you like blinding highlights like me, this is a cool thing to lay down and then layer with a powder. In either cases, it’s pretty good. I don’t wear foundation so it didn’t make me oily or something; but if you wear foundation on a regular, this might not be for you. If you’re like me and wear no foundation whatsoever, this is great too. And also works when you’re going for the no makeup makeup look.

It retails for 3000 RS / 29 US$. But it won’t be expensive when you buy directly from Sephora. But, because we don’t have a Sephora in Pakistan, every high end brand seems luxury. This isn’t expensive and you do get five highlighters.. so I guess it’s not bad at all. And.. I mean the packaging. *heart eyes*

I don’t know about you, but I’m swooning.
