Its Been Ages ..

Yes, I have entirely forgotten I had a blog. Now I've remembered I had one and its about bloody time I actually did a post.

So this coming week is going to be super stressful with finals and time-consuming work, work, work.

Anyways, hopefully by the end of this week, I'm going back to my old college to visit a few friends and since it'll be a stressful week (aka lazy clothing, little to no makeup) I was thinking of dressing up a bit ...

Here are my options (I have it in Gilet form though, not jacket)

& A dubbonet lip and a subtle golden black smokey eye

I also really like dressing up comfy and sporty but still pretty and well-put together.

& Brown leather boots or even converse!

So ...
What would it be?

Currently it's the Lush angels on bare skin cleanser which contains rose water. I love it, its a gentle exfoliate too!

Do you exfoliate?
Yes, I exfoliate twice a week, other than that my daily cleanser works as a gentle exfoliating cleanser.

What brand do you use?
It's an unpopular persian brand called Seagull cosmetics with products formulated by professional skincare doctors. I believe you can only get it from Persia! :( I get some of it every-time I visit.

M A K E - U P
What foundation do you use?
I don't use foundation, just my tinted moisturizer, its great especially now during the summer!

How about concealer?
MAC SelectMoisturecover in NC 15, i am considering BeneFit's erase paste too.

Do you know your undertone color?
I am more warm - yellow undertones.

What do you think of fake eyelashes?
I really like them! I don't use them much to be honest, but they are really interesting.

Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
Yes, I am aware of that. However, I only do that with mascara that I use daily and is constantly exposed to air. The ones I barely use I keep for maximum 6 months usually.

What brand of mascara do you use?
Currently, I am back to my gorgeous l'oreal telescopic in carbon black. I haven't shown this much love! I also use BeneFit bad gal lash over it for added volume.

Sephora or MAC?
I love MAC, but i'll choose Sephora just because they have a variation of brands including BeneFit and NARS! <3

Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
No, I do not.

What makeup tools do you use in make up application?
I have many brushes! I love my 187 duo fibre for buffing in concealer, tinted moisturizer and applying heavily pigmented blush. I also adore my MAC 222 crease brush plus my MAC 129 SH.

Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes?
Yes, my fave so far is MAC Paint in Bare canvas

For the face?
No, I don't.

What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
I LOVE sketch by MAC as well as Club and i cannot see myself without Blacktied!

Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Im not so fond of eyeliner generally, but liquid liner is preferable for a classic, precise flicked out line.

How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
LOL, not that often. I never have actually.

What do you think of pigment eyeshadows?
I would love to try them out one day and have a little collection on my shelf, I think they are so pretty!

Do you use mineral makeup?

What is your favorite lipstick?
See Sheer by MAC is the perfect most phenomenal lipstick! I adore it forever!

How about lipgloss?
Not too big on lipgloss. I prefer a sheer or matte finish.

What is your favorite blush to use?
BeneFit coralista is beautiful, so is MAC Well-Dressed and Dollymix!

Do you buy your makeup on ebay?
Never have.

Do you like drugstore makeup?
Yes, partially. The l'oreal mascaras I think are amazing, so are Rimmel's lipsticks.

Do you go to CCO's? (cosmetic company outlets)
No, we dont have a CCO where I live :( , but hopefully I will get to one when I next visit the states.

Did you ever consider taking make-up classes?
I did consider, but never thought I needed them, I might need them when I want to work as a pro make-up artist in the future.

Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
No, I am very good with it ;)

Name a makeup crime that you hate?
I HATE when a lipstick doesn't suit a skintone and just clashes with the natural undertones. Like the way I'd look with Saint Germain. Oh no.

Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick,eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
I really love neutrals! But color is lovely too. Bright blues and teals are really pretty!

Which celebrity always has great make up?
Victoria's secret supermodels. They always have this glowy, radiant skin with fierce eyes and lush lips!

If you could leave the house using just ONE make up item,what would you use?

Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on?
I can, and have. Its not that awful.

Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
I look even younger and more baby-faced w/o makeup. To be honest though, I look a million times better with it.

In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
I love BeneFit cosmetics. NARS is awesome too. Lets not forget MAC. Oh blimey, I just cannot choose one! =(

What do you think of Makeup?
Personally, makeup to me is a form of art. I love taking good care of myself and my looks and makeup is just a hobby for me. I enjoy it and find it very relaxing and if there is anything materialistic to uplift my mood it would be makeup, cupcakes and lots of sugary content food! LOL xxx

Now your turn!
xx, Sarah.

My Current Loves

Hello everyone, hope you're all well x

Recently i have been experiencing some fantastic products and i thought i would share them.
I initially wanted to name this post "April Favorites", but to be honest most of these i haven't really been using all through April some are actually very recent like the start of may, but I love them all!

1. Benefit Coralista Blush: I finally got round to trying this, it has become my everyday spring/summer blush. Its a perfect pinky coral with warm gold sparkle. It is very sheer and color is buildable. Thanks Claire Atri for recommending! x

2. BeneFit Bad Gal Lash: Great everyday mascara, doesn't clump, gives pretty decent results. I find this has more results with multiple layering. I like layering it with l'oreal telescopic. FAB!

3. Dior Lipstick #355 Rosy Pink: Beautiful soft true pink color. This is actually my mom's, she got it I believe from duty free not too long ago. It came in a little pack of 5 lovely shades, and its a miniature tube, i might consider the full size though, its gorge and it smells lovely too (:

4.L'oreal Mono eyeshadow in 501 Intense Blue: This is a gorgeous color, just makes my brown eyes pop. Great for blending through the socket with a soft warm neutral lid, also looks amazing paired with black for a night out.
(Sorry guys no photo available for this eyeshadow! :( - it is somewhat similar to MAC's deep truth, just brighter in contrast and more of an aqua blue)

5. BeneFit YouRebel Lite Tinted Moisturizer: I have been wearing this everyday now. Makes my skin look even, fresh and moist. It has SPF 15 which isn't much, but
I'm not bothered as I already wear high factor sunscreen prior to it, lovely product for summer, very light and it smells nice!
