Victoria’s secret haul!

A few days ago I went to Victoria’s Secret to check out their semi annual sale! I saw that a lot of their lotions and sprays were also on sale which made me super excited! I immediately picked up the spray “tangled blooms” because not only was it a great price but also because I originally had bought the lotion and I LOVED IT! So when I saw the tangled blooms spray I thought I’d try it out as well! They are both great for summer! Also the bottles are just so cute!! I also picked up a body oil in the scent bombshell seduction which smells soooo good and feels moisturizing! This one also has real cute packaging! Next I randomly saw a cheetah print makeup box that is perfect for organizing my makeup and for traveling! I love the cheetah print and love how much space it has! It holds everything nicely so I’m sure that my makeup won’t break if I’m traveling and I only got it for $12! So exciting! I also found a cheetah print keychain too which I thought was so cute. I’ve been loving cheetah print lately haha. I also got a couple little Victoria secret bags which I thought was useful for storing different things! Last but not least is the Victoria’s secret bombshell Paris perfume that I picked up for only $13 yay! I have been using the spray in the same scent for a while now and have been obsessed with it! I wanted to try the same scent but in the perfume and I’m so happy I found it since it was the last one at the store!

Favorite nude pink nail polishes!

I always find myself reaching for a nude pink nail polish color every time I do my nails! To me a nude pink nail polish is very cute and classy! I do also love bright colors and love switching it up but if I had to choose only one color to wear everyday I would go with a simple nude pink! I just love the color so much that any product that has a nude pink packaging will make me want to instantly buy it haha. A couple nail polishes which I have been loving are the Sally Hansen polish in shade 145 ‘devil wears nada’ and Opi in the shade ‘tiramisu for two.’ They are both very good polishes which I have been constantly wearing!

If you had to pick only one nail color to wear for the rest of your life which one would you choose!?

My perfect nude lipgloss! | NYX strictly vinyl

Lipglosses are not really my favorite and I don’t wear them as often as matte lipsticks. However this changed when I was looking through the many shades of liquid lipsticks at NYX one day. I randomly came across the ‘Strictly Vinyl’ lipglosses and tried a tester of the shade “Sugar Mama” on my hand. I saw that it had lots of pigment which I wasn’t really expecting and the formula also felt really nice. Even though I wasn’t sure if I should buy it since I never like to buy lipglosses I decided to give this gloss a try. When I got home and tried it I was shocked how much I loved it! It was a lipgloss that had pigment like a liquid lipstick which made me happy and since it is a lipgloss it isn’t dry at all. Only thing I don’t like is that it does transfer but it doesn’t transfer around your lips or get messy when applying. Even though it has strong pigment it is still lightweight on the lips. Sometimes I forget I have lipgloss on until the wind blows and my hair starts sticking to my lips lol ( who else hates that about lipglosses). It also lasts and looks nice all day which surprised me! Overall I have been obsessed with this lipgloss and have been wearing it everyday! I feel like this gloss always brings my makeup look together! This is the only lipgloss I have worn in a while that I have actually LOVED! It makes me want to try other lipglosses!

Thanks for reading! If you have tried this lipgloss or any of the other shades let me know if you have liked it! I want to also try the other shades! -Xoxo Bahar

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!

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!

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

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! (not wearing it in the picture below)

So happy with everything I got from Victoria’s Secret! Thank you so much for reading! Here is my Instagram if you are interested @blossombahar! You can also click here !
