Top 10 under 10

Hi Guys!

As 2015 is literally around the corner I compiled my favourite products of 2014 which also seem to be under £10 :oD We all love beauty products that are amazing for their quality and the price right?! I have seen a few videos on You Tube where people talk about their favourites and I always thought it was going to be hard but surprisingly it was the opposite. I say surprisingly because I always switch up my products but when it came to selecting out the products to write about I just knew which ones were my favourites! Lets just say some of these products were also my morning life savers…you know when you miss your alarm and have like 5 minutes to get ready but NEED to look presentable…..Yup those kinda mornings….

Here are my top 10 products UNDER £10!




This is the I Divine in Storm Palette by Sleek retailing for £7.99. For the price, this palette is amazing! The eye shadows are incredibly pigmented and smooth. I am a huge fan of primers, both face and eyes, though for these I can get away with not using a primer. With the variety of colours this offers, you can easily use it for a subtle day time eye or pump your whole look with the gorgeous shimmery cranberry, navy blue or even the forest green colour ❤





Not going to lie but I had a bit of a moment when I swatched this eyeshadow for the first time. For £1 the quality and pigmentation of this product is on a whole new level. A level I didn’t even knew existed. This is the Mmmm mono eyeshadow by Makeup Revolution. It is a matte deep brown with great colour pay off. It blends like a dream and is fab for contouring!



I am so sure I use this every day….This is the Rimmel lip liner in Oil Spice retailing for £2.99. What can I say about this lipliner?! Simply just love it! It is very easy to apply, creamy and leaves a matte finish without over drying the lips. Also very suitable for a variety of skin tones as I have used them on different clients before.



Being a concealer addict always on the hunt for great concealers this one by Rimmel is great bargain for £5.49. Very thin consistency and creamy, blends beautifully and doesn’t cake up under the eyes!





This is the B.Vibrant Lip and Cheek colour in Goji 138 which costs £3.99 ( normally £7.99 but reduced down in Superdrug). This is a lovely berry colour. I usually wear it as a day time bold lip but equally looks nice on the cheeks. It is very hydrating on the lips so for the price this product is a must for me.





This lipstick is simply called shade 11 by Makeup Academy and retails for only £1. Makeup academy always have very creamy and hydrating lip products and this one as always is just as amazing. It is quite a browney colour with a pink/burgundy undertone. Colour is hard to explain but great for the days when I want a natural lip colour.



I decided to go out and buy this eyeliner by NYC after hearing Desi Perkins from You Tube rave about it. After buying it for only £2.49 I totally knew why she was in love with it. It has a very thin point which allows for a sharp flick and accessibility to go right in the inner corners of the eye. The liquid is indeed a true black, perfect for a dramatic eyeliner look.




This blush by Makeup Academy retails for £1 and is simply the It is called Lolly which totally reminds me of the Chupa Chupa lollipops :oD…..just me?? It is a bubblegum pinkey colour and as you can see, I have hit pan. It is totally worth that quid considering how pigmented and long-lasting the colour is.



I use this clear mascara as a clear brown gel. It is by 2True and costs only £1.99. It does the job of a normal brow gel, keeps them in place all throughout the day! It is not clear any more as it has been mixed in with the brown powder I used on my brows. Overall a great product :o)

Picture taken from:

Whenever anyone asks me for my recommendation of a mascara I honestly always tell them to go for the Maybelline Colossal mascara which costs £7.19. I definitely have a soft spot for this product because it was my first ever mascara I bought and luckily it was worth every penny. I am not a mascara fan but this makes my lashes look so full! It gives the lashes length and volume, works wonders I tell you.

That is all lovelies! Was quite a long post but hopefully it can give new product ideas?!

Love you all! XXX


How to: False Lash Application

Hello Blogging buddies :o)

Today I am going to be sharing with you all how to apply false lashes. I do not know if there are different ways to put on lashes, this is just the way I do them and I hope it can help you!

First of all, find a good lash glue. There are loads out on the market, from what I have heard the brand Duo is really good. Here is the one I use…


I do love this stuff! Half way through!


Can’t forget the most important part..LASHES. These are the ‘Dramatic’ ones by Primark. These are the only ones I have been using so far but now I can actually put them on, I can splurge on different lashes. Though having said that for a £1 Primark lashes are decent.



I put a little bit of glue along the band of the lash and pick it up with my tweezers. The tweezers I own are Superdrug brand.



Looking into a mirror I tilt my head up and place the lash as closely as I can onto my lash line.



After doing so I squeeze my false lashes and real lashes together. To be extra sure that it wont come off, I grab my tweezers and push the lash downwards (without too much force).


As you can see that with lashes it can make a difference. In my opinion it pulls the whole makeup look together.


Voila! That is my method. If you cannot seem to grasp putting on lashes then don’t freak out, keep trying. Truuussttt me, it has taken quite a few months of practise for me!

I do have another blog post on how I got the makeup I have in the pictures above, keep an eye out! ❤ XXX

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

Neutral Eyes and NO lipstick?!

Hi Guys! I hope you are all having a great day so far!

Last week me and my friend went out for lunch to Gourmet Burger. Since I have already mentioned where we went to I shall also say that Gourmet Burger food is just delicious. They have a variety of burgers, sides and the chicken is halal! So if you are ever in George Street for lunch, do check them out!

Now let’s get to the makeup part :o) I chose very neutral eyes with a pop of shimmer in the inner corners of my eye. Surprisingly I didn’t feel like wearing lipstick….whoever knows me personally knows that I am a hardcore lipstick addict! Instead I just applied a thin layer of lip balm and rocked my natural lip colour. My outfit and hijab style was very Arabian inspired. Recently I have been loving wavy dresses and messy but not so messy hijab. You know the effortless and elegant look!


This dress was purchased from the Edinburgh Mela. I love the net lacy detailing across the neck and arms. The colour of this dress is a stunning cranberry shade-perfect for Fall/Autumn.




My eye make up was super simple. I patted gold eyeshadow on my lid and with a blending brush I defined my crease with brown eyeshadow. Even though it was a simple eye, I kept on building up the crease with different shades of brown for a more smokey look. In my waterline I applied white eyeliner and smudged out my lower lash line with dark brown eyeshadow. In my inner corner I gave a pop of colour which was a shimmery white colour. Obviously I gave myself a winged liner, topped with mascara and voila!
