London Wedding

Hello hello, it’s been a while!

Over the past couple of months, life has been really hectic for me. Personal issues, work, uni…everything came in one go that I needed to take a step back and just focus elsewhere.

I took a long break from blogging but now I am back and I intend to stick to it!

Around a week ago my best friends sister got married in London! Me and my friend Anna hopped on a train, attended the event and had the chance to look around London for a few hours.

Saturday
We left Edinburgh around 11.30.

Later on in the evening after we had arrived, we decided to go out and grab dinner. I already had makeup on so I popped on Kylie Jenner liquid lipstick in Leo to make the overall look more evening appropriate.

Sunday

On the day of the wedding, we both woke up really early and started to get ready. Not gonna lie, I was actually a little bit stressed as I had decided to wear a sari. Since I had never worn one before in my life and had to do it alone, I really didn’t want to mess up!

Having seen the sari a few days before the big day, I knew that I didn’t want my makeup to look too dramatic.
For the eyes I used the Makeup Revolution ‘Eyes like Angels’ palette and my trusty Maya Mia palette by Anastasia Beverley Hills.
I blended warm toned eyeshadows into my crease and patted on a shimmery purple eyeshadow on my lids. I went for wispy eyelashes to compliment the eye makeup.

Onto my sari! I actually managed to tie it pretty nicely however when I left the wedding it literally came apart LOL!

I let Anna borrow one of my Asian suits which I then wore in the evening  for the second part of the wedding.

For the evening makeup look I went for defined brows, minimal base and lots of highlighter. As we woke up really early that morning, I did not want to keep my heavy base on so I actually took it all off and concealed/powdered where necessary.

#rukiaswedding2015- OOTD’s & Makeup Looks

Hello lovelies!

Last Friday a family friend had her henna ceremony party/event followed by her wedding on Tuesday the 7th of April! A BIG congratulations to Rukia and Adil ❤

I thought I will share with you all my makeup and outfit details from both wedding events! For those of you who may not already know I come from a Bangladeshi background hence making me a Scottish Asian! I love dressing up in Asian clothes whenever I get that chance just because I LOVE wearing fancy clothes and also….who doesn’t love dressing up and taking pictures? ;o)

For the mehendi ( henna) ceremony I opted for this beautiful royal blue and yellow kaftan which I actually bought from Saudi Arabia! I literally felt like an Arab princess….LOL! A very similar makeup look I wore on the night is already up on my blog. Check it out here https://obsessionmuch.wordpress.com/2015/01/13/blue-gold-makeup-look/. I paired this dress with a royal navy headscarf which I bought from http://www.pearl-daisy.com.

Cousin of the bride! Also a fellow blogging buddy! https://shakirarahman.wordpress.com/

I loved doing this makeup look again! The lashes I wore with this look is by Eyelure in No 121.

Roll on the wedding :oD

I wore this gorgeous long dress bought from the store Rang in London. This definitely made me feel like a princess! The colour combination of red and gold is my absolute favourite! As the dress was very bold I toned down my makeup.

I blended in Sienna in my crease and patted in Glisten on my lids.  Both these eye shadows are from the Maya Mia Palette by Anastasia Beverley Hills. I put half a lash on the outer corners of my eyes and concealed the lash band with black eyeliner.  As the eyes were simple I paired it with deep red lips.

For my accessories I wore this lovely daisy hand chain I bought from New Look a while ago. The beautiful gold headscarf is from Pearl Daisy and to glam up my headscarf a tiny bit I wore this daisy chain on top, again from Pearl Daisy. How cute is the white rose?! The gold bag I used was borrowed from my aunt.

Overall I had so much fun on both nights. My 2 outfits including the makeup were different from each other which I am glad about. The first event my makeup was dramatic whereas on the second night it was more on the simple side with just a pop of red!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post ❤

Winter Lippies

Hi guys!

How are you all?? Hope everyone has had a great day :o)

The chilly days are upon us which means winter is nearly here, yay :oD. I personally love when the day gets dark quickly, with the cold wind blowing in my face and layering up in my scarfs. Even though I do not celebrate Christmas I love the atmosphere the winter months bring with them :o) So cosy!

For the beauty side of things people tend to wear much darker lipsticks. This for me is pretty damn exciting since dark lips are kinda my thing. From rich reds to berry shades to nearly black lipsticks, there is always so much colour on the lips! In today’s post I will be sharing with you all a few of my favourites. Lets get started.

This is shade Rossetto in 01 from the Kate Collection by Rimmel. Very creamy and hydrating. This is a blue undertone lipstick which makes your teeth look whiter. Amazing right?

I literally feel the need to applaud for this lipstick! Seriously so hydrating on the lips you wouldn’t even believe! This is a purpley lipstick by Lancome and it is called L’Absolu Nu.

A beautiful cranberry shade from Kate Collection again. If you don’t own any winter lipsticks then this is the one I would highly recommend for everyone to buy!

This is Sea Sheer by Mac. The formulation of this lipstick is amazingly creamy which is one reason why I am always at the lipstick section in Mac. Really need to buy a few more in different colours… ;o)

Right no joke when I say I have had this lipstick for ages. Totally forgot when I purchased. This is by Revlon in the shade Rosewine. It is more of a peachy red colour, great for a more day time red lip!

Hope you enjoyed this post and found it useful! Let me know what your favourite lip products are in the comments section! XXX
