Baking - The It Makeup Trick

Have you tried baking with your makeup? Sounds crazy, I know! Hold on, don't pop your blushes in the oven yet!

Baking, also called cooking, is a makeup technique, that I first found out watching Nicole Guerriero on Youtube a few months back. Apparently, this is a trick that was initiated by drag makeup gurus. If you are wondering what "drag" is, think about well-defined brows, full blown eyelashes, dark contour and everything along the lines. In short, dramatic makeup, evil queen style! Over the past year, baking has become popular amongst other makeup artists and beauty gurus too and I see why.

theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer - Worth the hype?

Thursday, 2 July 2015

theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer

theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer was one highlighter that had actually made my heart flutter when it took over the internet. One after the other, several leading gurus raved about it and it surely seemed magical in everybody's tutorial. I wanted to exude that ethereal radiance too so I decided I had to have it. Soon, this became the first product I ever bought with my own earned money as a birthday treat to myself but was it worth the hype? Let's see.

Broadway Pizza Ramadan Deal Review and GIVEAWAY!
Broadway Holy One Deal*
You already know how much I love pizza and that I am frequently trying out new pizzas. So, this Ramadan, I didn't just want to have more pizza but also share some with you! Keep reading to get lucky like I luckily got the chance of trying out the Ramadan Deal of my current favourite pizza place, Broadway Pizza. They have come out with a new 13 inch, stuffed crust pizza and you can buy it on its own, or in any of the two ongoing 'Holy' deals for Ramadan. The Holy Deal has two 13-inch pizzas, 6 chicken wings, a 1.5-litre drink and 4 sauces for 1499 PKR which is half the price of its actual worth. While, the Holy One Deal has  a 13-inch pizza along with 6 chicken wings, two 0.5-litre drinks and 2 sauces for 999 PKR.

June Favourites

Another month went by and I should have been blogging more but thanks to KE and PTCL, nothing is as easy as it seems. Anyways, there are only a few things that I have been loving this month and I have already talked about most of them on the blog so this post would be relatively short.

1. Revlon PhotoReady Eye Art - Topaz Twinkle

I love how convenient this cream eyeshadow is and how pretty it looks on the eyes. You can find my in-depth review on it that I posted this month only along with a glam makeup look.

My Ride or Die Eyeshadow Palette

Glamorous Face USA palette

I have owned Glamorous Face USA palette for a long time now, in fact, it was one of my first personal palettes, but I never blogged about it because perhaps everybody and their mums already own it. It is one of those palettes that everyone in Pakistan, from beginners to professionals depend upon as an all-rounder before dappling into anything more specific. The palette contains a total of 96 eyeshadows, out of which 48 are matte and 48 are shimmery with a great shade range for every occasion. The best part still is that it is insanely affordable. I bought mine for 1100 PKR from Naheed a couple years back and I think you can still get it in the same price range.

My Perfect Day (Competition Time!)

Friday, 26 June 2015

Rollerblades

My perfect day begins at 11 AM with some in bed scrolling down my social media feed on the phone. Once I am out of bed, I do some sort of exercise, to wake my system up and also because it is healthy. Usually, I like doing cardio, but if the weather is good and I have company, skating around is much more fun. After that, I jump right in for a wash to actually start my day, feeling fresh. I am much more organized if I follow this order rather than taking a shower later in the day. By 12 PM, I eat a bowl (read: huge mug) of my current favourite cereal, Special K, and this is when my mom says, ‘This is not a Kellogs time!’, but I have to have lunch by 2:30 anyway with dad so I still stick to it.
