November thoughts

I didn’t post anything on my blog this weekend. A lot has been on my mind lately and I’m still trying to figure out some stuff. I am wondering if I should continue my blog and try to write one post a week or just opt for a blogging hiatus for a while.

I am pondering over these decisions while i can sense the vibrations of heavy machinery coming from the ground from some distance away. A lot of people are hard at work after midnight working day and night to build the road . Its one of the busiest roads in my city. Let’s get on with the blog post.

makeup at the end of the day?

i think most of the girls like makeup( Now there’s an assumption *says to self* *rolls her eyes*). So yeah, I think most girls use some form of makeup. Eyeliner, mascara, lip gloss? What’s your favourite makeup item?

Makeup can surely make you feel fresher and cuter or whatever but how many of us realise taking off makeup at the end of the day is just as important? Answer: It’s very important. Your skin needs to be clean, breathe, repair itself at night. So taking your makeup off is very important indeed.

I am going to share what i usually do to take off my makeup. The routine can be quite time taking sometimes and i would skip some steps but in a perfect world this would be my makeup removing routine everyday.

1) Cleaning eye makeup using bioderma and cotton pads
2) Cleansing face with a cleansing milk and olive oil or a cleansing oil
3)Cleaning skin again with a cleansing milk
4) Washing it with a face-wash.
5)Applying a toner and moisturizer afterwards.

i try to do this twice or thrice a week, thorough cleansing, if i wear makeup everyday. but even if i do wear makeup frequently sometimes laziness gets the best of me and sometimes i use bioderma all over my face or mix olive and cleansing milk and combine steps 2 and 3.

You can use the products that work best for you or that make your skin feel better. After much trial and error, the product I use nowadays include bioderma sensibio micelle solution, borges extra virgin olive oil, olay essentials conditioning milk and clean and clear exfoliating daily wash.

I loosely built this makeup cleansing regime around this video by Lisa Eldridge. She shares some awesome tips in this video.

Hope you liked the post!! 🙂

July favourites!!

these two products are worth trying…

1. Maybelline New York Dream fresh BB cream

2. Bioderma makeup removing micelle solution

bioderma

These products have very quickly become two of my favourite products. Maybelline dream fresh BB cream is simply amazing. Super moisturizing, comes in a variety of shades, moderate coverage, doesn’t make your skin look oily and doesn’t feel heavy on skin. Highly recommended for use in this humid summer weather 🙂

Bioderma is absolutely wonderful when it comes to removing eye makeup and removes makeup without the need to rub your eyes and neither does it make the skin oily or overdry. Very effective for removing mascara.

I am thinking of doing a review about them soon in shaa Allah..

do you have any products that are your favourite? Let me know in the comments 🙂
