The instagram part included a thorough highlight/contour, baking, Egyptian eyeliner, smoky eye, arched thick brows and full over-lined lips. 
Whereas the clean makeup part included enhancing the natural features, soft brows, a flush of colour, cream blush, pink lips.

Benefit cosmetics has come out with a new addition to the "they're real" family. An entire line of 8 shades of double coloured lipsticks with teardrop-shaped bullets for easy and smooth, fuss-free application. 

So the entire idea behind this, as I can grasp, is giving the lips a fuller look by outlining them with a darker colour without the need of lip liner for that matter. Cheating lip contouring? take a look...

Here's a chart with lip swatches of the eight shades on different skin tones...

and here's a digital chart of all the 8 shades as well...

Hand swatches because I'm extra like that...

Hello everyone! miss you so much, honestly. I feel like I always say this but I constantly feel like it's been ages since I last wrote a chatty post in here. As you may or may not know I am a pharmacy student and I've updated you guys on instagram saying that I'm on a mid-year break right now (which is basically just two weeks BTW .-.).
Throughout the semester I've learnt SOO many things and I figured I would share them with other struggling college students or just people who are considering it <3

At the beginning of the semester I was so lost. I didn't understand anything to be honest. I didn't know who to go to when I needed help. I had no idea what was going on even though I never skipped a lecture and I've been present since day one. Add to this the fact that I'm scatter-brained. My brain just thinks about so many things at the same time and it's really hard for me to memorise names, places etc. So at first, uni felt like a HUGE place for me and I felt overwhelmed. It took me forever to memorise the names of the lecturers. I'd ask people for directions to labs every single week till almost the end of the semester.
I just have to go over certain things multiple times for me to memorise them *shrugs*.
But all of this is normal. probably everyone around you, although not obvious, feels the same way so don't panic.

In high school, pretty much everything was ready and at your fingertips. All you had to do was to study. At university on the other hand, you have to do everything from attending lectures (and labs in my case), doing assignments, presenting stuff, preparing your own study material which has to be reliable and thorough otherwise you'll be surprised at tests by material that you haven't included in your study guides which wasn't even a problem I need to worry about in high school. Which brings us to the next point...

Some students sell their study guides and don't get me wrong they sometimes can be quite helpful but don't ever 100% rely on them no matter how many times they claim to be thorough because chances are, they've left something out and I even once found a fatal mistake in one and this is when things get messy. So to avoid all this, I personally think that making your own study guides, listening to lectures, recording them and studying from slides/books is the way to go and I had to learn this the hard way.

Although feeling lost at the beginning of the semester is normal, staying like this for a long time is not and is in fact really dangerous. You might fall behind and this leads to the accumulation of tons of materials that you'll have to cram later on and chances are you won't be able to finish them on time or you'll have really difficult time understanding them so try your best to grasp just anything you can even if you can't get it all right. This has been my philosophy for the past two years or so and it's never let me down.

aannd anxiety triggering. I have anxiety that is normally isn't the worst but when I'm under pressure, my anxiety gets so bad that I can't sleep ( even when I'm tired/sleepy). I've come to the conclusion that the best way to avoid stress/anxiety during uni/college is by being organised and ready. I'm the worst at this, I honestly don't get this whole time management thing but it's crucial if you want to lower anxiety due to high pressure etc. I figured that the best way to do this is to plan in advance and to study small amounts at a time. Just simply be prepared for tests and don't cram at the last minute. 

There you go. These were some of the things I wish somebody had told me about uni. Hope that helped. I'll keep you guys updated and as always,
take care <3

Hello everyone! I'm back with a new rather experimental post. It feels so good to be back after finals and all that stress but we will discuss that later. Now, I'm pretty sure you've heard of Farahdhukai before and if you haven't then you're probably not on instagram because she's a beautiful lady that is well known for her quick insta beauty remedies which include facial masks, hair masks etc. I usually come across her videos on instagram and watch them for no reason to be honest I just like watching the end result I guess *shrugs*. I've never tried her remedies mainly because I don't have the ingredients/tools needed and I can't be bothered to go out and buy them. But one day, and for some reason, my mum brought home some fenugreek seeds and that sparked something in my head instantly. I remembered a video I watched a while back of Farah using the seeds for her hair as well as skin so I quickly wanted to try it to see for myself if it works.

The first thing that I did was boiling it in a pot and let it there for about 30 minutes.

After this I separated the seeds and the water because I'll be using the stock later on.

I used a pestle to grind the seeds as it was late at night and I didn't want to wake everyone up by using a blender or whatever.

I then used the paste on my face as a mask. It wasn't as thick as it was in Farah's video but it did dry up after a couple of minutes. It was stingy and almost had a burning effect. I have to say I was so eager to wash it off because it was quite irritating. It made my skin a bit red but nothing too dramatic. I would recommend using a bit on the back of your hand to see if it's too harsh to use on the face. I didn't notice any difference other than mild redness so I'd say the facial wasn't for me.

As for the stock, I used it on my entire hair and slept with it on. The next day I washed my hair and it was remarkably shinier than usual and pretty smooth. My sister also tried it and reported the same results.

So here you go, this was my experience. Let me know if you have tried this and also let me know any other effective beauty remedies in the comments below.
[ BTW, drinking fenugreek is very beneficial as well  ]

Love you loads,
take care <3

ازيكوا عاملين ايه؟ بتمتحنوا ولا انا بس؟  T_T 
انهاردة هكلمكوا عن
  " Nivea Natural Fairness face & body cream" 

و ده كريم مرطب من نيفيا بخلاصة التوت و فيتامين E و المفروض انه للوش و للجسم و انه لجميع انواع البشرة. 
انا شخصيا مابشتريش منتجات نيفيا من ساعة ما جربت الكريم الازرق بتاعهم التقيل أووي ده.

أسوأ كريم استعملته و كرهني في المرطبات كلها. بس اختي جابت الكريم ده و قلت اجربه و اشوف كدة هو حلو ولا ايه.
أول حاجة لاحظتها فيه انه ريحته حلوة و خفيفة و ماعتقدش انها ممكن تضايق حد ما بيحبش المنتجات ال فيها ريحة.
تاني حاجة غريبة لاحظتها فيه هي تركيبته. لاحظت انه كتلة متماسكة ف بعضها كدة و حسيت انه عليه مايه او مبلول نوعا ما. لما جيت احط منه لاحظت انه متماسك و محتاج اني اغرس ايدي عشان اخد الكمية ال عايزاها. مش عارفة اوصف تركيبته بالظبط بس هي مختلفة أول مرة اتعامل معاها. يعني ملمسه مش زي باقي المرطبات التانية ال متعودين عليها

بس لاحظت كمان انه خفيف علي البشرة و مش تقيل ابدا.
احتجت كمية مش قليلة لترطيب الوش كله و ده طبعا بيختلف من بشرة للتانية بس هو سريع الامتصاص و مش دهني. رغم اني شايفة انه مش مرطب قوي لكني شايفاه مناسب للاستعمال اليومي للصبح مثلا للشغل او الجامعة. و لو واحدة مثلا بتحط مكياج فوق المرطب مش بيعمل مشكلة لأنه بيمتص بسرعة و ما بيغيرش ف تركيبة كريم الاساس ( ده طبعا لو سيبنا وقت كافي ما بين استعمال المرطب و المكياج) .
الكريم مكتوب عليه انه بيفتح و بيخلي لون البشرة متناسق لكني ملاحظتش حاجة زي دي. الصلاحية 12 شهر بعد الفتح و سعر العلبة الصغيرة( 50 مل) 16 جنيه. اديله ٥.٥ من عشرة من وجهة نظري. لو عندك كريم مفضل سيبي كومنت عنه و هاجربه
