MY "NO MAKE UP" MAKE UP LOOK.


Today I'm sharing with you my version of the "no make up" make up look. For those of you who don't know what it is, it's basically a very natural looking make up that gives the illusion of not wearing anything on your face. The kind of "I woke up like this"look ! Now, I basically wear this make up on an everyday basis to university with switching up some bits like the blush colour or the lipstick. It's so quick and easy !

BodyCare: THE 3 STEPS FOR GLOWING SUMMER SKIN.


  Hello beauties! Most of us pay more attention to the facial skin and often forget the body skin. Summer is here and we're all cracking our shorts and dresses ( VS models are not born with those tanned amazing leggies ). So you definitely want to spend more time taking care of your body to get that smooth and glowing skin. Recently I've been using this SEPHORA chocolate collection and I'm definitely recommending it, however you can use similar products of your choice. 
Same as facial skin care, these are the three steps to achieve the best result on your body :
STEP 1: SCRUB.
Apply a scrub on dump skin all over your body. It helps exfoliate and get rid of any dead skins and impurities especially if you are willing to shave or fake tan after. this step leaves your skin smooth and squeaky clean !

LIFE TALK: GRATITUDE.



"Not everyday is good, but there's a good thing about everyday"

I chose to give a talk about gratitude as my final exam, because it's one of those wide topics which are basically related to everything, to many areas in life in general, and it's something most of us can relate to in a way or another. Of course I'm not by any means qualified to speak about life but I'd like to share some of my thoughts that I've been gathering since I became more conscious and aware of the world around me. Growing up in different places as kid, in various areas, among several people unlike in their manners, mindset, or habits, all through these unfading -not sure if are noteworthy- years, is that most of us never actually appreciate things around us, our families, friends, jobs, education, homes, all in all, humans don't appreciate their lives anymore. Yes, it may sound a little ridiculous, but it became a fact..

How many people nowadays all they do is complain, nag about everything, rush, run all around, and end up in total depression and misery? Although they actually have no problems at all, all they lack is gratitude. So here's something I've learnt growing up: One's ability to see beauty and possibility is proportionate to the level at which he embraces gratitude. Let me explain myself: We live in a world full of good and bad things, but none lasts forever, life is a mixed bag, no matter who you are. We notice that people started to forget that life does actually have an end, it's not permanent, it's temporary, we tend to run all over the place, bond to time, and not actually having any time to think about what makes us feel better, and what really matters. Life is meant be lived slightly, in every possible aspect of it. Being thankful, grateful, and acknowledging the smallest and little things that life has to offer, is one great achievement.

FRESH SKIN : TOP DRUGSTORE BB CREAMS.



Spring is here so it's time to switch the heavy foundation to a more lighter option : The BB Cream ! For those of you who don't know what a BB Cream is, it's product that combines moisturizer, primer, SPF and coverage. Nowadays all brands do these which leaves you with lots of options. Here I'm sharing with you some of the ones I've used and why I think they're the best one out there in the drugstore :
  
1. MAYBELLINE DREAM FRESH BB CREAM :  

maybe
This BB cream has an SPF 30, The formula is liquidy and it's available in 5 shades ! It feels very light on the skin. It evens out the skin tone, hydrate and smooth-en.  It is perfect for school days or when you don’t want to look like you are trying too hard. I love the fact that it gives a fresh and dewy finish so I think that it would be perfect for anyone who already has an amazing complexion and doesn’t need much coverage. You can also use it as a primar before your matte foundation if you still need to hide some imperfections, so you get both the dewiness and the extra coverage ! If you are young and you still have that baby skin or you have never experiment with BB creams I think this one would be the one to go for. The bottle contains 30ml.


2. GARNIER MIRACLE SKIN PERFECTOR BB CREAM : 
garnier
I love this BB cream because it more for those with an Oily Combination skin. If you have this type of skin I would highly recommend this one ! The formula is liquidy as any BB cream but it still manages to hide some imperfections, you can also build it up using two or three applications until you're happy with the coverage. What I like most about it is that it does a great job on hiding the pores, evening out the skin tone and giving a beautiful matte finish. With BB creams though it's necessary to finish your make up with some powder and carying it during the day for touch ups. BB creams make a fresh  make up look with some concealer, mascara, and a shiny lip gloss and touch of powder for spring ! The best way to apply any BB cream is hands, since a brush can easily soaks up the product.
This one lasts a bit longer since The bottle contains 40ml.


Love,
Omaïma.
