Reign in Glamour

MY OOTD: Outfit Nova Krishnan Couture | Jewellery Kamyen Jewellery | Make up & Hair Asya Shah

So a few wekends ago, I was in Dubai for Work & Play - and it was amazing! I got the opportunity to work with this super talented make up artist Asya Shah and my favourite Dubai based designer Nova Krishnan.

I wanted to try a make up transformation look on me - and all of you that follow me know, I always tend to stick to muted colour lips. For this look we went all out, with colour contacts and bright orange lips perfect for summer! The orange lipstick I am wearing is Lady Danger from Mac.

The outfit has some serious princess vibes, thus keeping the hair minimal and jewellery everygreen classics.

Korean sheet masks are the new thing, but don’t forget about your other favorite products!

Yes, my skin has become very dependent on Korean sheet masks, but there is one mask that I have used for several years and I am still obsessed with it:
Origins Clear Improvement Active

It is a charcoal mask to clear pores. I am sure all of us have seen those instagram videos of that charcoal nose strip that claims to remove all blackheads. Now, that I still need to try and study, but this Origins mask definitely works along the same lines.

Whether you have oily, dry, or combination skin- dirt, debris and oil will get stuck in our pores. What this mask does, is it contains kaolin clay and bamboo charcoal that act as magnets to remove all the extra toxins that cleansing wasn’t able to.

How to use:
    •    Use once or twice a week.
    •    After cleansing, on a dry face apply an even layer.
    •    Wait around 15 minutes for it to start drying.
    •    Rinse with room temperature water.

Note: We have read everywhere that before putting a mask, it is important to apply a hot towel to open pores. However, this can have a damaging effect as hot water can cause irritated and very dry skin (we’ve seen what happens to our skins when we take a hot shower). Pores don’t open and close just like that when it is in contact with hot water.. Hot water dries out the skin, which causes the body to enter panic mode, forcing it to produce more oils that can then clog the pores. Heat (like when you are exposed to steam) can help melt away some of the oils and fats that are clogged in your pores, but if you already have dry skin, be careful as this can have an adverse effect.

Where to buy: Sephora 

Remember, it is all about finding what is right for your skin!

Ethnic Elegance | #Sanadel Cruise Wedding

So my friends from Dubai decided to tie the knot on the Costa Fascinosa (Italian Cruise). And boy was it an innovative idea! I have never attended a destination wedding on a Cruise before. I know how all of you love when I post about the destination weddings I attend - I thought for this post I will share more details about the affair, themes & ofcourse my outfit details!

So the couple and the close family and friends got on the Italian cruise from the Port of Genoa (which is a 2 hour drive from Milan)

Day 1 - Hola Barcelona
Majority of the wedding party were getting on to the Cruise from this port, thus we had 5 hours to do an express tour of Barcelona. It was not enough time to cover such a cultural city - hence my husband and I are going back this summer as we were in love with everything we saw!

Why Tarte lip paints are even better than the other ones out there!

Lipstick Names (left to right): TBT | Lovespell | Twerk | Bae | Lip Crayon Names (top to bottom): Latergram | Magic Wand | Thirsty

We all know that a good lipstick can go a long way. With so many new ones coming out recently from the Kylie lip kit to Huda matte lipsticks, it has been a real game changer.

For so many years I would never wear lipsticks as the fact of it coming out after taking a sip of my drink and then retouching every half an hour just felt like too much of a pain.

A year ago, my friend introduced me to Tarte creamy matte lip paints and I have been using them ever since.

What I love about Tarte lip paints are that:
    •    The brand does not test on animals;
    •    The consistency of the lipstick is so thick that you only need one layer;
    •    I have literally had people come up to me and ask how my lipstick has stayed on for so many hours even after eating and drinking;
    •    I also purchased the liners and I would always have issues creating a lining around my lips and this is literally like a crayon making it so easy every time;
    •    My lips are so sensitive and I have reacted with so many brands such as Smashbox, Estee Lauder, Lancome etc.. but with Tarte- no reaction.

I have tried Huda and Kylie’s lipsticks as well and really they don’t even compare. Huda’s doesn’t have a thick enough consistency and gives my lips a very uncomfortable feeling and Kylie’s dries up too quickly.

Yes, I know many people now swear by these two lipsticks, but it’s definitely worth giving Tarte a try especially if you have sensitive skin and lips.
