A girl's best friend.....besides diamonds that is.You may be in a hurry and dont have the time to do your makeup step by step ,layer by layer...so all one has to do is dab on some BB/CC cream and put on a great lipstick to match your outfit and you're out the door..still looking nice and glammed up.
Now Im a dark lipstick girl..I hate light colors.....maybe because I go out less and put on makeup even less than the times I go out, so for me I always wear a dark shade of lipstick.I like my lips to look full and colroful.I wear bright colors and dark ones but stuff like nude and glosses with sheer pigments,not my style.I should be able to see my lips in the mirror and of course kohl in my eyes at times.
So here whats in this fall as the experts say.I dont beliveeve ina color specific for a season or year or time....anything that brings a smile on my face is the color I desire and love.

Eid Al adha is round the corner and along with a whole lot of things..the henna name comes up just as often. Henna is very traditional used to decorate the hands ,the feet, applied on hair and in the west on pregnant tummies and wherever one feels like !
Now I have ground henna leaves to make a great paste for my hands back in my school days but the most memorable henna powder I bought was around 8-9 years ago.I had been to the local supermarket and happened to come by this quarter kg pack of henna from Saudi.I prepared it with a few simple ingredients which are Lemon juice, coffee and black tea.That's it.Made it into a paste,applied and left it on for a good 9 hours or so and I had the most dark henna on my hands ,a dark burgundy to brown color which intensified in the days after.And the aroma...it was just heavenly.But That was that day and a week later I went back ,until now..I haven't found that henna pack.Plus not knowing the name didn't help either.
Off late, I have been going through hundreds of beauty videos and tutorials which tell you how you should contour and highlight your face, How do you apply cream,liquid or mousse or mineral foundation, what lipstick looks good on white girls or brown girls or the various cheats involved to make eyes bigger or lips fuller or face thinner.
First of all, makeup is work.Ad I thought it was copy and paste kind of thing.The art of makeup requires tons of practice just to get it perfect.You have glamorous makeup, you have neutral makeup, you have goth makeup, vamp makeup, makeup to look as if there ain't any makeup..the list is endless.But I realised this sucks you into the vortex once you start to get the hang of it and you decide to want more and have more.
I'm not saying that all this is wrong or self absorbed or anything.....I always think its better than falling to bad habits like drinking or drugs or anything that destroys or will destroy one's inner calm.I love makeup.I love…
