GORGEOUS HOLIDAY LOOKS

Hi there my lovelies! I hope that you are all having an amazing Holiday Season! As promised, here is the 2nd installment of the Holiday Glam Edition for my blog. I didn't have enough time to create 3 different looks, but on this post I will show you how to take a basic look up two Glam notches. I was also supposed to include a video but I accidentally deleted them. lol!!!!

If you want to see how I created these 3 looks, please read on. 😊


As always, we start with a clean, toned and moisturized skin. I love Cetaphil's Moisturizing Cream because it is very emollient and does not have SPF. Moisturizers without SPF is perfect for when you are going to be photographed using flash. The Titanium Oxide in SPF gives the white flashback making your face look whiter than the rest of your body.

Let the moisturizer sit in for a good 5 to 10 seconds or even more so that your foundation doesn't slip and slide when you apply it. If you wish to apply a Face primer, do so. I don't apply primer on my entire face, but just on areas where I think I am oily. I used L'Oreal's Nude Magique Blur Cream. 

Another thing that I love doing as a Pre Make Up Application routine is moisturizing my lips so by the time you apply your lipstick, whether it is cream, matte of liquid lipstick, it is plump and not flaky.


I absolutely love Urban Decay's Naked Skin Foundation. The finish is so skin like and you can layer it if you like a fuller coverage. I, however, like it as skin like as possible, most especially since I will be using a highly pigmented concealer like Kevyn Aucoin's Sensual Skin Enhancer. You only need a pin drop size to conceal your dark circles, redness around the nose and the discoloration on the sides of the mouth. I hardly ever bake, only when I know that I will be attending an event that will require me to stay up later than usual. For that I turn to my Ben Nye Banana Powder applied with a damp Beauty Blender.

Before setting my face with Maybelline's Fit Me Powder, I tried NYX's Cream Contour Kit and boy,  it is stiff as a board! lol! I literally had to dig my brush in to get some product. I used a Sigma brush to apply it on the hollows of my cheeks. And because of the consistency, I decided to use my ring finger to blend it. I figured that the warmth of it will break down the product, making it easier to blend. 

Now that you are done with all the liquids and creams, you can now set your face. As previously mentioned, I used Maybelline's Fit Me Powder. I wanted a very healthy, bronzy glow since we can get a little pasty over the Holiday Season and for powder Bronzers, I only turn to NARS' Laguna. To complement the Sun kissed look, I applied Charlotte Tilbury's Bar of Gold on my cheekbones, tip of my nose, a little on the cheek plane as well.

For the brows, it is my Go to Brow Pencil from Ben Nye in Medium Brown to outline the shape that I want. To make it look more natural, I used my Senna Brow Palette with an angled brush. To keep the brows in place, I used a clear mascara from Deborah.

This is the Basic Eye that I came up with and you will see that just by adding a liner and changing the lip color, you can transform this look. It is very versatile. 😊

I primed my eye area and lower lash line with MAC's Painterly Paint Pot. Using my Woman by Anna Flat Shader brush sprayed with Fix Plus I applied MAC's Reflects in Bronze on my lid. With my Blending Brush (White Goat Hair) dipped in Raw Sienna from ABH's Modern Renaissance Palette, i defined my crease. With the Eye Contour Brush and ABH's Cyprus Umber, i deepened the outer V. These 2 shades were smudged on my lower lash line using my angled brush. For the Browbone, I used the other side of my flat shader brush with ABH's Vermeer. For the 1st look, I tight lined with Make Up Forever's Khol Pencil in 1K. And for Full Fat Lashes, there can only be Maybelline's Volum Express One by One Mascara.

Who doesn't love a Nude Glossy Lip? My favorite lip combo starts with MAC Cosmestics Lipliner in Whirl followed by Siss Lipstick and topped with NYX' Lip Gloss in Sugar Pie. 

Et Voila! I think that even with the Bronze Reflects, this look is still very wearable. What do you guys think?

To up the ante of this look, all you need is Make Up Forever's Aqua Liner in Black to create the Feline Flick. To smoke up up the eye look, I lined my waterline with Make Up Forever's Khol Pencil in Black 

To vamp up the look, reminiscent of the 90's Supermodels, I chose Urban Decay Cosmetics' Vice Lipstick in 1993. This formulation is just DIVINE! It is Comfort Matte, so the pigmentation is A1 but it feels like a Cream lipstick. This is a must buy, guys. :)

Gorgeous Glam Look 2 done 💕

Is there anything more glamorous that a Wine-y lip color for the Holiday Season? I love MAC's Dubonnet Lipstick because there is a slight shimmer to it, non drying and the color reminds me of Old Hollywood.

Golden Eyes and Red Lips is the quintessential Holiday Look in my eyes. How are you guys liking this look? 💖

I hope that you are all having an amazing time with your loved ones, my lovelies. May the spirit of this Holiday Season remain in our hearts all throughout the year! 

I will see you all soon for the last Make Up Look for this Holiday Glam Edition to wrap up 2016!

Love and Light,

HOLIDAY GLAM: THE VICTORIA'S SECRET ANGEL LOOK

Hello My Loves!!! I know that it has been a long time since I posted a Make Up Look and what better way to kick off the Holiday Glam Series than to feature the Gorgeous and Sexy Make Up of the Victoria's Secret Angels 💖

The Victoria's Secret Angel always looks divine, but not so put together as she has that perpetually tousled, Vavavoom Hair. Her eyes are smoldering but no cut creases and false lashes. Her skin glows as if she just got back from an invigorating holiday.  I will call this "Wish I woke up like this look" as much as I would call this the Victoria's Secret Angel Look. Read to find out how I created this. 😊

I think the Victoria's Secret Angels look is all about the skin. Looking at loads of visuals from the 2016 Fashion Show, it seemed as is they were not wearing much foundation. There isn't heavy contouring either. I don't think that baking was used either. In a nutshell, none of the "Instagram" beauty trends were used .

The most important step to creating a Flawless Base is to start with a clean and moisturized face. Clean, Scrub, Tone and Moisturize. There is nothing worse than flaky skin clinging onto your foundation.

To achieve a Flawless Base, I used Urban Decay's Naked Skin Foundation. This offers a skin like finish and because of the consistency, you can layer this foundation without looking cakey. I dotted my skin with the foundation and buffed it with my Artist Brush Dup.

I used this Pro Concealer to cover my under eye circles, the redness around the nose and some discoloration on the sides of the mouth. Important note, I didn't use use the concealer to "highlight" my face. Since the concealer is pretty thick in consistency, I used my ring finger to apply it. The warmth of my finger will break down the product making it easier to blend and melt onto the skin. After I applied it, I simply pressed it with the Artist Brush Dup to lock it in.

For the Sun Kissed Look, there is only one product for me, Chanel's Soleil Tan de Chanel. I used the Woman by Anna Stippling Brush to work the product into the skin. For creams and liquids to not simply sit on the skin, it has to be worked onto skin buy gently buffing the product and this brush is perfect for that job. I applied the Bronzer on the high points of my face.

Looking Lit from within is easy peasy with Becca's Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal. I didn't  use a brush for this but my ring finger again. I apple this on my cheek plane all the way up to my cheekbones, the tip of the nose, a little on the Cupid's bow.

To set my base, I buffed Maybelline's FIT ME powder with my Everyday Minerals Kabuki Brush.

My brow routine isn't Rocket Science. It is very easy and I have used the same brow pencil for more than 2 years! LOL!! What can I say? I love Ben Nye's Eyebrow Pencil. The video above will show you my preferred method of filing in my brows.

As previously mentioned, The VS Angel has smoldering, come hither eyes. There were no cut creases, if they applied false lashes, I can be very sure that they are individuals or just for the outer corners to lift the eye. No heavy liner but the Feline Flick was there.

To recreate the VS Angel Look I used my VISEART Eye Palette in Cashmere. I love this Palette!!! Aside from the fact that it so small, the colors are spot on! You can use this to fill in your brows too. The pigmentation of this product is beyond compare and glides on like no other eyeshadow that I have tried. Having said that, this palette is not cheap, it is AED 250 but I think that it is totally worth its price tag.

With the Woman by Anna Flat Shadow Brush I applied the middle shimmer shade on the my lid. With the tip of the same brush I applied the top shimmer shade on my tear ducts. I applied the middle matte shade on my crease with the white Woman by Anna Goat Hair brush and used a back and forth motion to blend the shadow. Using the same brush, I applied the bottom matte shade on the outer V to create more depth. Using the Flat Shadow Brush again, I applied the top matte shade on my brow bone and a teeny tiny bit of the top shimmer shadow on the highest point of the brow bone

For the Feline Flick, I used my Make Up Forever Aqua Liner in 13. For the Lower Lash Line. I used the Straight Synthetic Brush dipped in the middle matte shade to smudge the lower lash line. With the same brush dipped on the bottom matte shade, I smudged the outer corners to meet the Feline Flick.

To make the eyes smolder but not smokey, I lined the outer half of my water line with Make Up Forever's  Artist Liner in Black and lined the rest with MAC's Chromographic Pencil in NW25/NC30.

Lastly, I applied my favorite mascara, Maybelline's One by One Volume Express on my top and bottom lashes. To make the eyes look more Feline, instead of an upwards motion, I applied the mascara with a sideways motion. If you wish to apply another coat of mascara, make sure to comb through while it is still wet then re apply.


I kept the lips Nude and Glossy. With recent popularity of Liquid Lippies, I have completely forgotten as to how lovely MAC's Lipstick in Siss is. I paired it with Kylie Cosmetics' Lipliner in Maliboo. It is a tad darker than the lipstick, so I blended the lipliner towards the center before applying the lipstick.

There you have it, my loves. I really hope that you like the 1st look in our Holiday Glam Edition. There will be 3 more looks before we hit New Year's Eve! 💝💝

As always, I hope  that you are all having a great day/evening and I will talk to you guys very soon!

Love and Light,

MY WEEKEND SKINCARE ROUTINE


"Take good care of your skin, "is the 1st advice that I give to anybody who asks me about Make Up. It may not seem related at first but trust me when I say that you will agree with me after reading this blog entry. Make Up is fun but when you wipe it all off, your bare face is all that you are left with and you have to be able to sashay confidently with or without Make Up. Having said that, I thought I'd share my Weekend Skincare Routine with all of you. Since my job requires that I look put together all the time, wearing Make Up has become an integral part of my day and if you do this 3 to 4 days in a week, I strongly suggest that you indulge in a Deep Cleansing Weekly Skincare Routine. Doing this weekly will keep your skin in tip top shape and prevent break outs.

MY HOLY GRAIL SKIN CARE PRODUCTS
I have tried and tested so many facial cleansers, scrubs and masks but I always end up going back to these three products. 
GLAMGLOW SUPERCLEANSE DAILY CLEARING CLEANSER
This is perfect because it rids your skin of oil but gentle enough to be used daily. I have come across "super cleansing" facial washes that leaves my skin too dry. Our skin is very smart. The moment that it realises that you don't have enough oil, it automatically produces more oil, thus making your skin oiler.
(yup, used oily several times! lol!!!!)



VICHY NORMADERM 3 IN 1
I love this product from Vichy because it is a money saver. You can use it as a cleanser, scrub and mask.


CAUDALIE' S INSTANT DETOX MASK
This mask looks like Calamine lotion when applied but it is so good! It has a tightening effect and my skin looks brighter after using it. It also claims to minimize pores but I can't really vouch for that as 

MORE FACIAL MASKS 
There are a few more face masks that I turn to depending on how my skin was behaving that week. 

FACIAL MASKS FOR DRY SKIN
When my skin needs a little more moisture, I turn to GlamGlow's Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment. This smells divine and it leaves your skin supple and soft. I prefer leaving this mask overnight as opposed to just applying it and leaving it on for 15 - 20 minutes.

Caudalie's Moisturizing Mask is another one that I use when my skin needs more moisture.

DEEP CLEANSING MASKS
GlamGlow's Powermud DualCleanse Treatment is a mask/facial cleanser in one. This leaves my skin feeling and looking cleaner without the drying effects of a deep cleansing mask because it turns into oil when mixed with water. It is strange but true! 

Caudalie's Glycolic Peel Mask is another Go to Mask for when my skin looks dull and requires some brightening 


Welcome to my Bathroom!😀

At Home Facial Treatments are easy! All you need is a bowl of hot water, your favorite facial cleanser, facial scrub and facial mask of your choice.

My Go to At Home Facial Products

Let us start with cleaning the face, shall we?

My Holy Grail Facial Scrub. 💖

Face is Clean and ready for my Facial Mask. 😀

Calamine? Nope. LOL!

After your Weekend At Home Facial Ceremony is done, don't forget to tone your skin to close the pores, apply your favorite serum and/or moisturizer and get your beauty sleep.

Develop a Skin Care routine early and be diligent. A skin care product takes about 3 months of religious application before you see results. I always say that when you love your skin, it will love you ten times over. 

I hope that you guys learned something from my Weekend Skin Care Routine and that you try some of the products that I have mentioned 💖

PRODUCT REVIEW: KAT VON D LOCK IT TATTOO FOUNDATION


What can you expect from the Cosmetic line of one of the best Tattoo Artists alive? Well, you are about to find out with a review of Kat Von D's Lock It Tattoo Foundation. 😄

A little background on Kat Von D and her Cosmetic line, Kat is of course well known as a tattoo artist, musician and TV Personality. She launched her line in 2008 with 4 shades of lipsticks and look at the brand now! Kat's products have always been Vegan, meaning it does not contain animal products, its buy products and does not test on animals. 

The Lock it Tattoo Foundation has 47 shades, contains 30ml of product and is Fragrance free. This is a plus for me because I think that adding fragrance to face products can lead to skin irritation. This retails for  USD 35 (+/- 130 AED) It now has 47 shades and picking the right shade won't be difficult as it also has an undertone guide for you.

It is a full coverage foundation, however, it can also be thinned out by adding a small amount of moisturizer or beauty oil of your choice. I believe that it does not contain SPF, making this foundation perfect for photoshoots. You can expect the foundation to hide blemishes and discoloration, however, not entirely sure about its claim of being transfer proof as I have never worn it during Jiujitsu training! LOL!


BUT FIRST, LET ME TAKE A SELFIE! 😆

When reviewing foundations I don't use any primers, If the product claims to be long wearing then it can and should be able to survive the whole day without "foundation helpers." I also don't use setting sprays. 

The Lock It Tattoo Foundation is not the kind of foundation that you dot on your skin and not blend immediately as it SETS FAST! If you don't blend the foundation immediately it has a tendency of clinging on to your skin, leaving undesirable patches.

My preferred method of application is with a flat top kabuki brush. I feel that this buffs the foundation into your skin better. A PRO Tip. If you feel that you may have overdone the foundation, take a damp Beauty Blender and pat all over the face. Another PRO Tip: If you don't have a Beauty Blender, take sheet of Kleenex and pat. This allows you to remove the excess product without moving the foundation.

I was very busy the day I put the foundation to the test, therefore, not having an opportunity to retouch. Eventhough I never had the chance to do so, the foundation didn't settle on the sides of my nose. (As you will see on all of my check ins). I think that from 0945 - 2045, a little bit of shine is forgiveable. LOL!

MY 1ST CHECK IN AT 0945 
When I test a foundation, I make it a point to take a photo in natural light and it has to be 1st thing in the morning. This gives me a better way to compare the "wear" of the foundation throughout the day.

MY 2ND CHECK IN AT 1645
The product did not oxidize (this means that your face did not get darker) and there was no meltdown inspite of the fact that I had to be outdoors that day as well.

MY LAST CHECK IN AT 2045
The foundation being full coverage, I will suggest this to people who have oily skin. If you have dry skin, you can still wear this but make sure that you exfoliate to remove flakiness (some women have dry patches and this product clings) and of course moisturize.

So, what are my final thoughts on Kat Von D's Lock It Tattoo Foundation? I don't think that it is a hype. The product delivers what it claims to deliver and more.The price point is good, not too pricey for the results that it gives. 💕

Hope that this review was helpful to you guys and see you all very soon!

Love and Light,
Anna

SKIN CARE AND MAKEUP TIPS FOR YOUR TEENAGER


They grow up so fast! One minute you were changing their diapers and the next minute you are doing their make up for the Junior Prom! What I would give to turn back time to spend more time with these teenagers are toddlers! But then again, being a mom and an aunt to these lovely teenagers takes on a different dynamics. And I loving every bit of it too!

During my recent holiday back home, I had Ally's cousins and my sister over our house. It was soo nice to have them over! Never a dull moment. 💕I took this as an opportunity to teach them how to apply makeup and I also took their photos on my iPhone. 😆😆 Pardon the quality of the photo, I had to improve the lighting. 😊

For this shoot, I used the same shades for the eyes and cheeks on Lizzie, Ally and Renee. 😄

Here are a few tip skin care and make up tips for your budding teen ager 💗


SKIN CARE
I can't begin to tell you how important it is to encourage your teenagers to start on a good skin care regimen at an early age. The earlier they start taking care of their skin, the longer they will maintain their youthful look. Modesty aside, I am 40 next year but I can still pass for someone who is in her late 20's. Thanks to genetics and a good skin care regimen.😎

CTM: Their skin care regimen should be simple and gentle products. I say simple because the moment it gets complicated, they wont do it. It is as simple as Cleaning, Toning and Moisturizing

CLEANSING: Cleaning the face after school is so important as it removes the dirt and grime from a day full of school activities. While cleansing with their favorite facial wash may have removed some dirt, there are some that is deep seated and can only be removed by a toner. 

TONING: Toning, aside from deep cleaning the face also closes the pores. Closing the pores is essential as it prevents dirt from creeping into your skin, therefore avoiding breakouts.

MOISTURIZE: Moisturize at an early age, do it now and thank me later 😏 

SKIN CARE EXTRAS:  A deep cleaning scrub twice a week is also recommended as well as an at home facial. 




ALL ABOUT THAT BASE

PERFECT: Teenager's skin can be tricky because of puberty and they may breakout, however, that is a not a reason to pile on the foundation. I actually do not suggest foundation for very young skin. Opt for a bb cream or tinted moisturizer.

CONCEAL: Because or exams, project deadlines, teenagers can also develop dark circles and for that a yellow toned concealer that is a shade lighter than your skin should be applied on the dark cirles.

For blemishes that are red in nature, a green corrector to counteract its redness, should be applied prior to applying a concealer that is the same color of her skin. 😇

BLUSH: I don't advocate contouring for teenagers, for special occasions, yes. I recommend a hint of a pink blusher on the apples of the cheeks for that English Rose look. FRESH 😃





BE ON FLEEK AS A TEENAGER

BROWS ON FLEEK: One and only advice... KEEP YOUR TWEEZERS AWAY FROM YOUR BROWS. If at all, you just need to clean some stray hair and keep the brows in place with a clear mascara.

THE EYES HAVE IT. You are a young lady but not yet a fully grown woman. You will have so many years ahead of you to create smokey eyes and maybe wear false lashes and black eyeliner. There are ways to defines the eyes without going crazy with colors. Use a matte, medium Brown eyeshadow all over the lid then blend. You can also use the same color to define the lower lash line. Apply a cream colored eyeshadow on the brow bone. Curl your lashes and apply mascara.

LUSCIOUS LIPS: Only because these young ladies wanted to wear the Kylie Liquid Lipstick! lol! I prefer glosses over matte lips for teenagers. I think matte lips matures the wearer but on this occassions, I let them have it. LOL!!! Keep the colours, you have the rest of your adult life to wear those rich reds and deep berries. 


Most of all girls, don't hurry up, enjoy being a teenager, the homeworks, the highschool crushes. I pray that you 3 grow up to become empowered women, constantly seeking Our Loving Father with a strong sense of self and a desire to do good whether big or small.

OOTN: A NIGHT AT THE OPERA

THE DUBAI OPERA

What comes to mind when you hear or read the word OPERA? I immediately think of Evening Gowns, Tuxedos and Diamonds.😍 I , however, decided to take it down several notches when I watched Les Miserables.

I have 2 mantras when it comes to dressing up and it doesn't matter if I am attending a formal or an informal event and these are, "KEEP IT SIMPLE" and "WHEN IN DOUBT, WEAR BLACK." Sometimes I combine both.

For A Night at The Opera, I decided to skip the dress and "modernise" a Red Carpet Look by wearing texturised jeans with a simple and black top with an uneven hem and Patent Black Pumps from SJP Collection. 💕 What is a Red Carpet Look without the Bling, right? I kept the Bling simple by wearing Diamond Drop Earrings and a Tennis Bracelet with a Bejeweled Clutch from ALDO.

Tell me my lovelies, what are your fashion mantras?

Love and Light,
Anna

FAIXA BRANCA: MY JIUJITSU JOURNEY

Yes, I have been Missing In Action but not without a good reason. :) Aside from being busy preparing for projects, I have also been busy on the mats and inside the octagon :) Yes, my loves, I am completely in love with Brazilian Jiujitsu, have also gone back to Boxing and Muaythai. 

Some people may call this their Fitness Routine, I would like to call it my Chosen Lifestyle. :) I embraced boxing in 2013 and got introduced to Muaythai in April of 2014. I have tried all forms of workouts in the book; Zumba, Crossfit and though I loved them all, I got bored after doing the same thing day in and day out. 

Boxing and Muaythai, to this day, ranks as the best way to condition your body, your Cardio, incomparable. Those jabs, cross, hooks and uppercuts will define your arms without having to lift weights and those roundhouses will give your pins that is both sexy and strong.

I think what brought about me embracing boxing and muaythai was my love for UFC. Watching the old fights and seeing most wins were via Brazilian Jiujitsu submissions made me rethink my path. Though I love my stand up and striking sports, I felt that I will never be able to fight. It became more of a sport to me than merely a fitness plan.

I started My Brazilian Jiujitsu Journey during Ramadhan of 2015. I had 3 classes with a Gi and 2 classes with No Gi. Unfortunately, my coach had to leave and I stopped training.

I think that the MMA and BJJ gods heard my pleas and fast forward to end of March 2016... UFC Gym Middle East Opened here in Dubai.

Training started... Day in and day out, I would come and train for 2 hours. 

14 July 2016, I earned my 1st stripe as a Faixa Branca. The journey doesn't stop here and I know that under my coaches, Prof Pimpolho and Rafael, I will be able to advance and compete in the near future!

MAKE UP ARTIST TIP OF THE DAY: MAKE UP FOR SPECS WEARING BEAUTIES

If you Find your lashes hitting your lenseS, curl them. Not only will it prevent your lashes from hitting your lenses, it will also open up your eyes. 

Dark circles can get highlighted, thus, using a concealer is imperative. 

If your frames are thick, apply a thicker liner so that the eyes can stand out and it won't hurt if you wear a red lipstick 💋😉 

Today's Liquid Lipstick is from Anastasia Beverly Hills in American Doll.
