The Past Few Months.

Honestly, I don't know where to begin. A lot has happened in just a few months, decisions were made, new steps and new beginnings. I guess from my last post I have to state the obvious, I wore Hijab. Without a doubt, it was the biggest and most important decision I've EVER made, like ever ever! I didn't think about what I would be missing, instead I thought about all the new things I'd be gaining. Ever since then, I felt better, more myself somehow, it's indescribable. I remember people used to think that I've gone wiser or more rational ever since I wore my hijab, which is ironic cause .. I haven't. *awkward laugh* Everything about me is still the same, I'm still the lively, enthusiastic, perky clumsy loser who makes a fool out of herself anywhere she goes ...

Oh! guess what? I finished my first semester in college! Time flew by so quickly, seriously though. I made tons of amazing, kind-hearted friends who I love spending time with and creating unforgettable memories. The educational side of things, it feels good to be studying something I love and hopefully having a future career in the Media side of the world, and along side it, pursuing my passion for makeup artistry and fashion.

Here's a few life lessons I've learned in these past few months: Number 1) Have the guts to do what you want and screw anyone who disagrees. 
2) You're not considered selfish when you think about yourself first.
3) Enjoy every single moment in your life, express your love to people and appreciate the things you have.
4) When it comes to love, cherish it. Cause it's the most beautiful feeling on earth.
5) Do new things, meet new people and seize every great opportunity you get.
And lastly, never make any life changing decision if you're not 100% in it. 

I guess that's everything. Thank you so much for reading, I really appreciate it. Don't forget to follow me on all my social media and feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.

Makeup Tutorial: *Updated* Going Out Makeup Routine.

Uhhhh, yeah. So it's me, again. After a loooong break, again. Apologizing, again! But this time, I have no excuses. My laziness has taken over me, however, a lot has happened and I have tons of life updates, but i'll make a separate blog post covering all that you've missed.

Anywaysss, Today's blog post is going to be my updated going out makeup routine, the makeup I wear whenever I go out with friends, family and so on. 
Okay let's get started!

First of all, I'm starting with a clean and washed face. I already filled in my eyebrows using the '' Wet n Wild Ultimate Brow Kit '' using my " The Body Shop Eyebrow Brush" 

After priming my eyes with the " Mac Painterly Paint Pot " , grab any warm brown eyeshadow and apply it to the crease with fluffy brush, I used the brown shade in the " Kat Von D Shade and Light Palette '' as i'll be using it later for my face, and to apply I'm using the " BH cosmetics 101 brush "

Then, with my ring finger and '' Urban Decay Single Eyeshadow, shade: Toasted " apply this shade onto the eyelids, and then using the same fluffy brush, blend.

Next, Using the '' Colourpop Creme Gel Eyeliner, shade: Swerve '' messily line the upper lash line, then smudge it out using a pencil brush. I used the " BH cosmetics 105 brush."

Now the eyes are half done, we'll get back to them after we finish the face makeup. For the face, I primed using the " Bourjois Happy Lights Luminous Serum Primer '' which is one of my favorite primers for hydrating the skin and keeping the makeup intact all day! After that, I corrected my under eyes using the " Nars Creamy Concealer, shade: Honey '' and followed it with the " Maybelline Fit Me Concealer, shade: 10 " under the eyes and on the places where I need it. Blending using my Beauty Blender.

To set all the areas where I applied concealer, I used the first 2 light shades in the Kat Von D Palette.

Mixing the first 2 contour shades and a stippling brush, I lightly contoured the hollows of the cheeks, forehead, temples and jawline.

For blush, I've been really loving the " NYX High Definition Blush, shade: Amber " and for highlight, I used the " Colourpop Super Shock Cheek, shade: Smokin' Whistles."

Back to the eyes! Line the lower half of the waterline with the same pencil liner and smudge out using the pencil brush used from before and smoke it out with a brown eyeshadow.

Layer and coat your lashes with your favorite mascaras. As a base and my first coat, I used the ''Rimmel London Wonderful Mascara" , on top of that I used the "Bourjois Paris Volume Glamour Max Definition" and as a last coat I used the "Too Faced Better Than Love''.

Last but not least, I have a serious obsession with the Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks! This will seriously stay on your lips and not budge nor bleed outside of your lip line. Like the name, it's ultra matte and a bit drying, but it's not an issue if you prepared your lips with lip balm! My go-to shade is Bumble.

Viola! The look is now done!
