Lorac Palette 2

I really never had Lorac palettes before until I my friend Danah Alfares from Kuwait , A nail artist and beauty blogger started raving about them for months that I had to take them, and not only her but also all youtubers , blogs and my followers . Finally I added them to my bag and they were beautiful , most pigmented palette ever , and here they are all mine lol . I know I shouldnt swatch Lorac 2 before 1 but wait and see why I love the second a little more ..I promise ill swatch the first palette later ..

First of all , it has nudes , and a variety colors like Plum , Navy blue , Jade and rosegold . All these shades I desire and love . But my fave is the shade Chrome , its so similar to MAC satin taupe but much smoother I guess . It coordinates with the plums and grays .

Now after looking at some swatches , You can understand why I loved it , this palette is good enough to take it everywhere because it got all the shades in one place .

Anastasia Beverly Hills in Medium Brown and Bobbi Brown in Saddle / Mahogany . I use them together . I dont know why but grey undertones go well with my hair and brows .

Tanya Bur in Afternoon tea and MAC cremesheen glass in Just Superb are kind of similar on top of my Makeup for ever lipstick in Natural ( Peachy Nude )

Stila eyeliner in Peacock is just beautiful , stays all day and the shade of this teal is soo pretty , has a black undertone so its not so bright and I can wear this for Fall . Love !!

And Lancome Mascara , which I posted about it . You can check it out .

Thanks for reading

5 Drugstore products that I love ..That you should also get!!

Milani Lip intense liquid color :
Very pigmented and beautiful colors to choose from. They’re definitely a true liquid lipstick – no shine at all. The shade is fun and vibrant, and it doesn’t make me look crazy. It flatters my skintone and I love how pigmented it is. The wand picks up a lot of color so I use a lip brush . It dries matte and it is a bit drier, but with lip balm underneath it’s not a problem for me.
الاشياء الارخص ثمن بس تستاهل ان نشتريها
قلوس ميلاني الي لونها قوي و يطول لونه تغطيته قوية و حسيت ان لازم اقولكم عنها عجيبة بس شوي تنشف .. بس انا احط زبدة ككاو و بس تنحل مشكلتها ..
The Body Shop Vitamin E Serum oil
I apply a bit of this right before my moisturizer and the dryness is GONE! And when I wake up in the morning my face is more vibrant and almost glowing. Highly recommend this for very dry skin .
سيروم بودي شوب لفيتامين E .. احطه قبل كريم الليل وايد يعالج البشرة الجافة و لما اقعد الصبح الاقي ويهي ناعم ..
Revlon Lash Potion by Grow Luscious
مسكارة رفلون لاش بوشن تفرق الرموش و حلوة فرشتها كبيره بس لازم شوي شوي نستخدمها
Seperates and lengthens lashes to the maximum. I always hunt for drugstore mascaras and this is a good one for everyday but I have to be careful when I apply this . This should be applied slowly .

Flormar Mineral blush in Romantic Salmon
Its a mineral or baked blush that has the same texture and quality of MAC mineralize skin finish blushes . The shade is in between peach and pink as it is soo smooth on the cheeks . Sheer but glowing .
بلش فلورمار صاير نفس ماك عجيب يعطي نضارة و لونه حلو مشمشي على وردي حبيته ..
L’oreal in Lumi Magique concealer
كونسيلر لوريال لومي ما يتطوف استخدمه كاضاءة حق كل يوم
This is a beautiful highlighter pencil , I use this as a highlighter on my nose , chin and top of my cheekbones .

What I did last night to get a tanned face?

Hello , Hope you enjoyed the weekend

I have been trying this Face Lotion Self Tanner by ST Tropez all week . So I remembered that I should exfoliate my skin before that , so I cleansed my skin with Avene cold cream gentle cleanser and used The Body Shop exfoliater sponge to clean and exfoliate my face . This gentle cleanser is a favourite of mine because it does not dry out my skin at all .
السلام عليكم ان شاء الله استانستو بنهاية الاسبوع

امس استخدمت سلف تانر مسمر البشرة و لكن بكتب الخطوات الي سويتها قبل لا احطه .
استخدمت غسول آفين للوجه و فركت فيه باسفنجة بودي شوب علشان ازيل الخلايا الميتة و بعدين السلف تانر يشتغل احسن . كانت الاسفنجة قوية و لكن ما استخدمها كل يوم .. و تبون الصج ترا عجيبة لو تشوفون امس شكثر شالتلي المكياج قلبت لونها برتقالي من المكياج ..
The sponge was rough but I wont do this on a daily basis . But the sponge turned orangey as it removed the makeup . I really like this!!

و بعدين لما غسلت و نشفت ويهي حطيت كولد كريم للترطيب من نفس الماركة آفين متوفرة بكل الصيدليات بالكويت .
So the next step was the Cold cream , I applied it after washing and drying my face . Its a very thick cream that can be used for face and body .
و اخيرا استخدمت السلف تانر الي من سان تروبيز للوجه و اليوم قعدت ويهي شوي مسمر 👌👏
And finally applied the self tanner after the cold cream . This self tanner has a lotion so it moisturises the skin but I prefer that I apply a different cream before self tanners to avoid dryness .

Woke up with a mild tan and a little glowing color . Live this self tanner as it isnt orange nor too dark .

Top 5 foundations for dry skin

1 – Nars tinted moisturizer with spf 30 is my repurchased item because I had a beautiful experience with this formula as it moisturizers my skin very well that if I forget applying a moisterizer, my face will still look great , the flawless , fresh look for the mornings . It’s the only tinted moisturizer that gives a better coverage , glow , moisture and good amount of protection. I use St Mortiz . P.S I had compliments when I use this .

2- Armani luminous skin foundation is a good foundation for dry skin because it has a luminous finish look but it’s not the shiny type . I feel it gives my skin an image that my skin is well taken care of . I use this for evenings because it does not have sun protection . This can be used daily but I’m saving this for weddings or any event . It has medium coverage but can be buildable . It’s a winner because of the finished look but that does not give moisture .

3- Nars sheer glow foundation is a full coverage foundation , it gives a big time glowing look and covers imperfections very well especially the dry areas . It has no protection so I keep this for evenings . If you have scars this will cover it .

4- MAC Minieralize moisture foundation with SPF 15 is my new foundation that feels so light on the skin , has medium coverage but we cannot build the coverage . I tried to apply another layer of this and it gave me a dewy flawless look but coverage stayed the same . I am using this for the mornings with my MAC mineralize concealer . This is perfect for dry skin because the moisture keeps my skin hydrated , and my tight lines were less visible because of it . 5 stars I wish I knew this before .

5- Laura Mercier silk Creme foundation is a heavy creamy foundation that I use on cold winter days when I will have a super dry skin . But I’ll give you a warning message : Don’t use this for summer as this will melt and feel ugly . This is a medium to full coverage and it is not a tinted moisturizer . It has no protection but looks so beautiful . I mean it very beautiful lol .
