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 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!

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 !

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!

Happy Makeup Mistake!

After swatching every Toofaced melted matte liquid lipstick at Sephora I found a shade which I really liked and decided to buy it! Once I got home I opened it and realized that it didn’t look like the same shade I had swatched at Sephora. I did get a little annoyed that I had picked up the wrong one since it wasn’t a color I liked to wear all the time but I decided to try it on anyways. The second I applied it I noticed I loved the formula! It wasn’t watery at all and it wasn’t too drying so it was very easy to apply! I just loved how it felt and looked on my lips! I really want to try the other shades since I loved the formula so much! I got the shade “Sell Out” and …. I was actually surprised how much I ended up loving it! I normally go for a nude lip color for an everyday look but I have been wearing and loving this everyday now! It’s a really pretty peachy color! I really like how it isn’t a strong red. Love how it isn’t too dark but has just enough color! I think it’s just perfect! I also love how it stays on all day but does not dry out your lips! It stays pretty all day longgg! I’m sooo happy I picked up the wrong shade! 🙂 Sometimes mistakes can turn out to be a good thing haha

Thank you so much for reading! Also in the bottom picture I’m wearing this lip shade & my favorite hat! 🙂 -xoxo Bahar

Lancôme Blush Palette

IMG_1279.JPG

A couple weeks ago I was going through my makeup with my friend. I pulled out a makeup bag from my drawer and saw that there was a lot of different palettes inside. I came across this beautiful Lancôme Blush Palette. As soon as I opened it I looked at my friend and said why have I not been using this blush!? It is so pretty it makes me sad that I have not been using it! Lancôme is one of my favorite makeup brands ever. They have beautiful blush colors and they look very lovely on too. This shade is called 126 Nectar Lace. I love how there is a contour, blush, and highlighter all in one. This way you have everything in one place without it taking up space. It is great for travel! It also has a very nice mirror inside which makes this palette even more perfect! The blush is a subtle rose shade that gives a beautiful natural rosy color to your cheeks. It gives a really pretty glow to your cheeks! I really like this color because it isn’t a bright pink. The color does have a lot pigment yet it is still subtle and pretty. I thought the bronzer shade is really nice too. The color was perfect for my skin tone.  The highlight is very subtle and natural. It is great for those days when I want to keep my highlight more natural. I really love how all the shades go very nicely together. I just love everything about this blush palette. So happy that I found it because I have been using it everyday! 🙂
