What’s In Your NeatFreak’s Pouch - Part 3

Bag featured is The NeatFreak's Wrap Me Up Bag in Nude:

Here’s the final part of the first series of What’s In Your Pouch. After applying primer and concealer as mentioned in previous posts, the best way to lock it all in is using powder. Now, a lot of people, including the Kardashians, swear by banana powder for the under eye area. If you find it hard to commit to that really light under eye look - then here’s an alternate option.

It is important to note that we need one powder for all over our face to lock in all the liquid based makeup we have put. This will prevent it from melting off our face.  As our under eye is darker than the rest of our face, it is a good idea to use a powder lighter than the one you use all over to help brighten that area. A quick hack is to get a powder from the same brand you use for your face but a few shades lighter. This way you brighten your under eye but don’t need to use a banana powder for it- plus it will last a really long time- good investment.

As I use, MAC studio fix powder NC41, I use NC25 just under my eyes to lighten it up.

Remember: It is all about finding what is right for your skin.

Tropicana Havana

MY OOTD: Top Topshop | Skirt Topshop | Shoes Asos | Bag Topshop | Earrings Asos | Sunglasses Asos

SS18 key trend is inspired by the colourful cultural influence of Cuba. It's all as about mixing prints and embellished textiles from novelty fruits, animal prints & graphic palms.

I was in London when I shot this look, walked past this cute flower shop in Notting Hill and knew this would the perfect photo opp to sport my Tropicana Havana look.

#ThatPoshTravels | Bahrain

As per request on Instagram to make a list of things to do in Bahrain. Bahrain is a smaller version of Dubai, except its more authentic, cultured and local. Dubai being filled with 70% expats, Bahrain has 50% expats. Which means you'll see more locals, more ethnic structures & history here. In the 2 years I've been here, I've seen a lot of urbanization and development happen everywhere. Bahrainis are very warm, liberal and friendly people which is what made the transition of settling here easier. 

In Dubai, alcohol is served in hotels only. Bahrain, however, we have a street called Block 338 in Adliya which is filled with restaurants and bars which serve alcohol. You can go bar hopping basically on that street which is quite hipster and cool.

Bahrain is a great place to visit, the food is incredible here. Bahrain is an eating culture, if you follow me on Snapchat or Instagram you'll know that I've become a foodie only after moving here. On weekends the population of Bahrain increases spikes up, as that's how many people from Saudi are driving in for weekend tourism on the tiny island.

The best time of the year to visit Bahrain would be from November to March as the weather is incredible during this period. Summers here are unforgivable to say the least, with the temperature rising beyond 45 degrees and it's near impossible to be outdoors in such conditions.

MY OOTD: Outfit Ohaila Khan | Jewellery Didi's Jewellery | Make up Sawsan Aloraibi

Hi fashion lovers, I know you haven't heard from me in a long time. 

Which is why, I wanted to share with you all this outfit that Ohaila Khan had sent me to wear for a wedding in Bahrain. Upon receiving it, I realized it was just too beautiful to not shoot in high resolution for you all of you, seeing as I know how much all of you seem to love my Indian Outfit inspiration posts.

So, I shot this look right before attending the wedding. Woke up at 9am and got my hair and make up done, drove to the location which was Jumeirah Royal Saray hotel, got ready for the shoot with my personal jewellery pieces, shot the look for an hour, went home, had a bite and then drove another 45 mins to attend the wedding.

What a long day it was, but its so worth it when you see the outcome of you're work!

What’s In Your NeatFreak’s Pouch - Part 2

Bag featured is The NeatFreak's All Purpose Bag in All Bare Nude:

We are back with the What’s In Your Pouch series. This time we will be talking about one makeup product all women need: Concealer. Yes, those puffy, dark , tired under eyes - whether we had a long day at work or had a late night out with friends - we can’t avoid them.

Lucky for us , we have concealers to come to the rescue- the highly dense formula helps even out skin tone and brighten up the under eye area. Having tried so many, the NARS radiant creamy concealer still beats them all. At NARS, they believe that makeup should enhance your beauty not cover it- and that is what this concealer does.

With its easy to use wand - you just need to dab a few spots under the eye and then even it out with a beauty blender or brush. The great part about this concealer is that it can be used around the face- for any redness, acne, or uneven areas you want to conceal. You can even use this on daily basis, instead of foundation, to create that light, even tone, day look.

Stay tuned for the next part in the series where we will talk about the step after concealer to lock it in for the entire day.

Remember: It is all about finding what is right for your skin.
