Taylor Swift "Blank Space" Inspired Makeup Look

Hello Everyone,

Today I will do a celebrity inspired look, I have been planning to do one for some time. I took up Taylor Swift new song 'Blank Space' insppired makeup look where she is looking absolutely amazing.
In this video she is playing a girl role who is insane, crazy and jealous lolx :P

In this makeup video she is wearing her signature lip color which is red with some glossy finish in it and a long black cat eyeliner flick. I know I'm not blonde, I don't have blue eyes though but I'm still doing this look because I just adore her she is so pretty. This look is great for winter time and you can wear this look at dinner date, party and clubbing as well. I have enlisted the products I have used and steps for the everyone's ease :)

  • Benefit Porefessional primer click Here for review
  • Chanel lumiere long lasting foundation click Here for review
  • Pond BB cream click Here
  • M.A.C minerlize skin finish in "Medium Plus"

  • Pair of false lashes


Products used for lips:

  • DMGM photo fix lip liner in shade "Plum Frost"
  • Mac Russian Red lipstick
  • Nyx lipgloss in shade "Perfect Red"

Step By Step Instructions:
  1. As you know Taylor has a lighter skin than me and in this video she has a semi dewy skin so here I mix my Chanel lumiere long lasting foundation which is a matte with my ponds BB cream to get the perfect semi dewy skin.
  2. After that I'm going to take a concealer in shade beige and apply it on my under eyes to hide those bad dark circles and than layer it with my maybelline dream lumi touch highlighting concealer to highlight my face, so I put it under my eye, bridge of my nose, my chin, and forehead and blend it.
  3. After that I dust my face with M.A.C minerlize skin finish in medium plus to set everything at place.
  4. Its time to fill in my brows so here I take medium brown eyebrow pencil and apply small strokes to fill my brows in and take a synthetic brush dip in my concealer and than clean the edges of my eyebrows.
  5. Now I'm priming my eyes and dipping my brush into sin (which is a champagne color ) and applying it on my entire eyelid and then taking a silver metallic color (gunmetal) and then place it on my outer v and drag it to the crease line and blend it well and with this I add a hint of blue color (chaos) on the outer v and crease and again blend it nicely so the metallic and blue color mix together very well.
  6. Use the same metallic silver color and apply it to your lower lash line and highlight your inner corners with the same champagne color.
  7. Than draw a thin line with your favourite black eyeliner and drag it to the outwards and make it a lil bit longer than your usual liner flick like Taylor, and by the way you will never go wrong with a long flick.
  8. After that its time to use some falsies, here I take a false lash and equally cut it in two sections and than apply it over my natural lashes with the help of a small tweezers. 
  9. After my lashes dry out completely now its time to have some mascara so apply a generous coat of your fav black  mascara and yeah we we are done with our eyes.
  10. Last but not the least I just line my lips with a lip liner and dab my fav red color from M.A.C which is "Russian Red" on the centre of my lips and top it of with Nyx "Perfect Red" Gloss for that shiny effect like Taylor have in her new video.
  11. voila we are done now .

Let me know how did you find this Taylor Swift inspired makeup look? share your thoughts  <3

L'oreal Perfect Clean Foaming Gel Wash "Refreshing" Review

Hello everyone,

Today I'm  reviewing  "Lorea'l perfect clean Foaming Gel wash". If you are a person who likes to  explores new things and try out new products than check this out . It comes in a aqua transparent packaging along with a cleansing scrubber pad. You can hang this scrublet on your mirror or wall as well :D You can find this in every skin type like oily skin, sensitive skin as well. But as I have combination skin so I bought this in Normal/combination skin.



My experience:
Having a combination skin I get oil rather quickly on my T-zone area and when I saw a scrubber with this face wash I thought it would be really interesting. The gel kind of formula is really light on skin with a refreshing aroma. I just poped out my scrubber from its bottle and place a small amount of this face wash on it gently run this over my face and bang my face looks so refresh and clear.  I use this 3 times a day, in morning when I wake up in afternoon and in night before I'm going to bed.  I really like this face wash but more than this I love its scrubber pad, It run over my skin smoothly and clean almost all the dirt and oil from my face. Only a lil goes in a long way and it almost lasts for 2 and half months which is really good I guess. The only down side of this is it makes my skin dry somehow so for that after washing my face I always use my moisturizer to keep my skin soft and moist all day long. And after finishing my face wash I'm not going to through this scrubber pad away I'll use it as long as I can.



Application:
Pour the face Wash on the scrublet and gently massage into your skin or apply the face wash direct on your wet face with your hands and than take your scrubber pad message with it. Place your scrubber pad into your 2nd and middle finger and massage on your face with circular motion and then rinse it off with the water.

Thumbs Down:

  • My skin gets drier

Hello Everyone,

Today I'm reviewing "Chanel Perfection Lumiere Long Wear Flawless Fluid Makeup in shade 30 Beige".
It comes in a glass bottle with a pump which makes so easy to get the right amount. The packaging is classy and the Chanel logo on the top of the cap makes it more beautiful. It has two powders in it, the hemispherical powders which is a transparent one and the other one is coated with mineral ceramic pigments which is a perfect light control complex. It gives you a perfect balance and correction of light. It comes with the less SPF which protects your face from sun and you look great in your pictures too.



My Experience:
I'm not into foundations allot, usually I wear BB creams at daily basis. But after finishing my Revlon color stay foundation and I give it a try.

I have combination skin and as you know the weather is changing its almost winter here in Riyadh so my skin becomes very dry, I use my moisturizer before applying this foundation. The texture is liquildy and it set on skin really quick with a matte finish. Only two pumps are enough to cover up my whole face. It  has medium to full coverage and It cover any redness, blemishes or spots I have on my face. It is weightless and looks naturally flawless on skin with  its long lasting effect. The light and fluid texture glides on my face smoothly. This foundation is buildable so whenever I want some extra coverage I just put another layer of it and yeah I'm good to go. It literally last for whole day which you gonna love about it.


Application:
Shake the bottle first and then take 2 pumps of this foundation on back of your hand and now sink a buffing brush into the foundation and buff on your face and then set it with a setting powder or you can use your hand for the application as well.

Swatch:
