Samantha lashes by Huda Beauty

Samantha Lashes by Huda Beauty

Hey lovelies! I am so so excited about this post! These are my all time favourite faux lashes and they have never ever disappointed me. Like EVER. These can up your girly swag any day! 😎 In this pic I’m wearing the style ‘Samantha’ from Huda Beauty lashes. I absolutely love this style!! They look so natural & truly open up the eyes. They are also one of the easiest lashes I have applied till date & they fit my eyeshape perfectly without any trimmings. I highly recommend Huda Beauty lashes to everyone thinking of buying their first QUALITY lashes. Once you try these you won’t want to try any other brands.

These are so wispy and soft to touch. The thick lash band allows you easy application on the eyes plus the band also being thick allows the glue to disperse and dry evenly. I am so glad I discovered them. They retail for $20 in Sephora and the Huda beauty website. Do let me know what you think of them! I’d love to hear your thoughts 🙂 Xx

Aishwarya Rai inspired makeup!

Hello lovelies!

This look I was inspired by the gorgeous Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai whom most of you might already know about. She has been an ambassador for L’Oréal and Longines watches for a long time and I simply love her. I admire her fashion sense and makeup style, especially when she’s addressing press! 😁

Review: Georgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

Georgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

After continuously mentioning it’s name in earlier posts, the time has come to give Luminous Silk foundation the credit that it truly deserves! 🙂

I cannot stress how much I LOVE this foundation and there are hundreds of women out there who share my love for this product!  Armani has really nailed the formula for this one and it’s awesome. Please note: it is sheer formula so it will not work for girls looking for a full coverage to cover imperfections. You may be able to cover small spots & blemishes but if you’re looking to hide scars or bumps then you’ll need to go for something heavier like MAC or GA’s other formulas. I bought this foundation after coming across Huda Kattans review on her website hudabeauty.com. I follow Huda religiously (Errr…stalkerish tendencies? I hope she’s not reading this! :D) and trust her in-depth accounts of every product she reviews. I initially applied Luminous Silk on my face with the Sigma F80 buffer brush but I wasn’t too happy, I thought my face looked bare. But then I applied it on with the beauty blender and I was an instant lover!…(What is a beauty blender? Stay tuned for my next post! )

Packaging-wise, the foundation comes in a glossy black box which unveils a matte glass bottle with a black lid and pump which perfect hygienic reasons. It is simple yet stays true to its brand Armani; simple, chic and upscale.

GA Luminous Silk really photographs beautifully; no white cast or odd looking skin tone with this one. Your skin will look like your own skin but better with a healthy from-within-glow. I recently also converted my sister to using this foundation. She had been a MAC or nothing girl for the past few years but after trying out this baby she was sold! So I would highly recommend Luminous Silk to women looking for a new foundation that gives natural dewy finish. I personally use the shade 6.5 and 6.25 which is equivalent to Mac NC35 and NC40. Sometimes I mix the 2 colours to get a customised shade. One drawback about this product is that it is not a less is more type of formula. I usually have to use 3 pumps to achieve the base I’m satisfied with. And to me 3 pumps of foundation is a lot.

The way I apply this foundation is by dotting it with my fingers all over the face and then blending in circular motions like you would a face cream. Afterwards with a damp beauty blender dab in quick light stamping motions all over the face.
