Why I started my blog

For a long time now I wanted to start blogging and have tried blogging a few times before but I never had time to keep everything up to date plus I didn’t even really like the content I had but now I have decided to really work on my blog and do my best to have lots of great and original content! 🙂

I’m really excited to post everything because I just have so much to share! For my blog I will have lots of lifestyle, fashion and beauty posts! I am new at this so not everything will be perfect but I still hope whoever visits my blog will be inspired. Not only am I blogging to inspire others but I am also blogging as an outlet for myself. I have a lot of thoughts and ideas trapped in my mind so why not write it all down in my own blog!

I am beyond excited for this blog (you don’t even know)! I hope you enjoy reading!❤️😊

My EASY everyday smokey eyeshadow!

Really happy that another semester is finished and I survived my finals! Running to lectures and studying for tests gave me no time to play around with eyeshadows. I haven’t even had time to really use a couple of my new palettes which I have been so excited about! Every morning I would give myself 10 minutes to do my makeup because of course I always choose sleep over having time to get ready. Even though I never gave myself time I always wanted to still do eyeshadow. One thing I have noticed is that for me light/bright eyeshadows don’t really look the best on me ( I do still like to wear it ) which is why I like to go for dark brown eyeshadows or dark purples most of the time. Smokey eye looks are my favorites but need time. For days I’m running late I like to do a super easy smokey eye look that is very quick to do using only two shades.

The first step I have recently started doing is using eyeshadow primer. I always noticed my eyeshadow disappearing and creasing after a while which never looked good. One day I tried an Urban decay eyeshadow primer sample from Sephora and it changed everything! So happy that I tried it because I actually have seen a difference. When I don’t use it my eyeshadow always creases but when I do use it my eyeshadow stays exactly the same as I put it on even after walking outside in humid rainy weather! I noticed that it also intensifies the pigment of the eyeshadow. With this product you only need to use a little bit to make your eyeshadow look and stay amazing all day! It is definitely worth getting a sample and trying it out!

After applying my primer I start by taking the color ‘Password’ with my real techniques brush. I start at the outer corner of my eye so that most of the pigment is focused on the outer corner. I take that shade all over my lid and blend it so that the color becomes a little lighter as it gets near the inner corner of my eye. You can add more and layer it for more of an intense color. Make sure that you are building up the color and not starting strong because then it will become harder to blend across the lid. Especially since this is a quick look building the color ensures that there isn’t any harsh areas that will take time to fix. Next I like to take a little of ‘Smolder’ and focus this shade only on my outer corner and then blend it. This will help intensify the Smokey eye. I like to use my fingers and blend the edges and smoke it out so that there isn’t any harsh lines or edges. I then take the same ‘Smolder’ shade and apply it on my lower lash line. Applying eyeshadow on the lower lash brings the entire look together especially in a Smokey eye look. For my lower lash line I like to also use the same real techniques brush but I pinch the top with my fingers so that it is easier to apply the shadow closer to my lash line. Blending one last time with a clean brush will make sure that your Smokey eye look is all blended nicely together! To finish it all off you can apply eyeliner and mascara. I normally only like to wear mascara! For my mascara I like to focus it on the outer part of my eye. Both the mascara and the dark shadow on the outer part of my eye gives my eyes an almond shape. All the colors in this eyeshadow palette blend really nicely making it super easy to do a quick Smokey eye with little time. I love doing this easy eyeshadow look that takes no time to do as my everyday on the go makeup look!

I like to pair this eyeshadow look with any nude lip! A few of my favorites at the moment are : Sazan Nude Bobbie brown, Nyx strictly vinyl in the shade sugar mama , or Nyx lingerie in the shade corset!

Thanks for reading❤️

Prettiest highlighter!

When I saw this highlighter all over Instagram it just looked too pretty not to buy! I love the packaging especially how the product looks like waves. It is so pretty I don’t want to use it haha. I also think it looks so pretty on! It has the most beautiful glow and it sits so nicely on the skin. I feel like it blends in beautifully with the rest of my makeup while giving me the perfect glow. Amrezy x Anastasia Beverly Hills has definitely become one of my favorites! I have been using it all the time!

Can’t believe January is already over! January is one of my favorite months because it’s my birthday month! My birthday was on the 22 so this post is a little late since my university started the same day as my birthday ( which was so annoying lol) so I got very busy. But I wanted to still make a quick birthday post to show my beautiful flowers and lovely cake thanks to my mom❤️

Tea Tree Face Wipes | The Body Shop

One of my favorite stores is The Body Shop! Everytime I go shopping with my friend I always make her go look around the store with me haha. One time while looking around I noticed these Tee Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wipes. On it says that it is suitable for blemished skin so I thought I would give it a try! After cleaning all of my makeup off and cleansing my skin I used one of these wipes on clean skin to further cleanse my face. I immediately felt this cooling feeling on my face which felt so nice! It gave a glow to my face after using it! It felt like it was really cleaning my skin and that it would clear my blemishes. I have had this product for a while now. I use it on clean skin before I sleep and when I wake up before doing my makeup. I have actually seen a difference in my skin after using this product for a while now. Today I went and bought my third one haha. Really loving this product it makes my skin feel so fresh after using it!

What skin care products do you love using/recommend?! Definitely let me know in the comments! I need to try out more things haha

Thank you so much for reading! -xoxo bahar

Who else gets excited when Victoria’s Secret has a sale?! I definitely do haha. I got really excited when I saw their Pjs on sale! I wanted to buy one for so long now. So happy I finally got to. The one I got is a long sleeve shirt and pants set. Love love love the fabric it is so comfortable and warm. It also looks very nice on. I never want to take it off haha. I especially loved this one because it is full of different woodland animals! It also has trees, bridges, houses, and snowflakes on it… and unicorns! It is just SO CUTE. I also love how it is black and white. There is also a black strip which goes down the sleeve as well as down the side of the pants which is also a cute addition to the set. My favorite part has to be the pattern on this pj set! So cuteee 🙂 I also bought the fragrance mist Bombshell Paris.  Last year my friend told me to buy the rollerball in this scent and I loved it. I am still using it! I am so happy I got to get the mist  (so did my friend)! It is a really nice smell. I definitely recommend! So excited to use it! One last thing which I also got is a lip crayon. I just really liked the nude color and that it was a lip crayon. It is a really nice light brown color.  It has nice pigment and it is moisturizing! It has a very pretty shine to it!

Mauve Obsessions Palette | HudaBeauty

The thing which really caught my eye with this palette was not only the lovely colors but also the packaging! I really love how it is so compact but the mirror is actually so nice and big. Even though the palette is small the eyeshadows are actually nice sizes. I love how all of the colors in this mini palette are similar shades. It is so nice for travel because of the size and the mirror! You can have your favorite colors in one place without taking up any space! The colors are really nice and pigmented! My favorite part was how easy they blended. The Mauve Obsessions was my favorite mini out of the other ones but I also really want to try the Smokey Obsessions palette cause I really love smokey eye looks!
