FOTD & OOTD-Eid Ul Adha

Well hello everybody! Happy Eid ul Adha to everyone celebrating, and for those who aren't, happy Saturday to you :) I should probably learn my lesson and change my tailor since he is quite unreliable but I didn't this Eid as well which resulted in me not getting my Eid dress on time, just like last Eid. Oh well, I think I did okay without my dress. You guys let me know in the comments below :)


 I decided to keep it simple when it comes to makeup since I'd be running around all day and didn't want to do something that would require high maintenance. My dress was basically a jorget shirt with ruched sleeves and embroidery down the front which is kinda obvious haha. I paired it with a chiffon duppata and my ever trusty black tights.


Now, I know my eye makeup skills leave a lot to be desired but I decided to try anyways. I'm wearing two shades from the MUA Undressed Palette. I have Shade 1 on the inner corner, followed by Shade 6 on the entire lid and a bit of Shade 7 on the crease. To see the swatches of the shades used, and a review of the Undressed Palette click here.


As for the rest of my face, you can see its more on the naturally radiant side (atleast that is what I had in mind before starting lol). I started off with Rimmels Match Perfection Concealer and Highlighter (review here) and followed it with Rimmel's Clean Finish Foundation (review here) and a light dusting of Rimmel's Stay Matte to keep my makeup locked in place for as long as possible (review here). Now I know it seems like I'm a walking, talking advert for Rimmel but I find that all their products work really well for me, especially when combined. For my cheeks I added a bit of MUA Bronzed Perfection on my temples and jaw line (review here) along with a bit of Color Studio Professional's Blush in Audacious Orange. I finished off the look with a Revlon Matte lipstick (review here).

Excuse the mini bomb in my hair and the pose in the second picture lol, I was attempting to show a bit of my Mehendi artistically, which was quite a fail haha.

How was your Eid? Did you guys over dose on Bakra meat or stayed away from any and every from of gosht like me? Let me know! :)

Until next time, tc.

  11. I think you did amazingly well withoout your actual Eid poutfit but gotta hate lazy darzi's lol. The eye makeup looks very natural and your skin looks flawlessly healthy. I should try Rimmels compact too. :)

  13. Your face does look very natural and glowy..
    No matter how much I try, I always end up getting a made-up look and especially when I have to dress up and go somewhere (my experimental eye-makeup fails and usually my foundations fails to settle in time).. LoL.. I got Rimmel's matte in Sandstorm which is awesome but I think it is lighter then my skin (as usual)..

    Had to do the meat thing.. Ugh!!! Got ready after we got free to visit people, very tiring.. Next two days all I did was sleep.. hahaha..

    How do you take pics?? I try try for a blog I just started and they still turn out horrible..

    1. thanks! i think the reason for the made up look might be that you're powdering yourself too much after the foundation. in my experience over powdering can make you look overly madeup. aaah im the same with eye makeup! it's always a big fat fail when i try to do something that i learned through so i just dont attempt it anymore and do what i know best! lol, which is usually just working with one color.

      Haha i can understand! there's soo much meat everywhere!

      um i take my pictures with a kodak camera, its just a simple one, no fancy features. i used to be horrible at it, if you look at my previous posts from when i started blogging you'll see how terrible i was but i guess it gets better with time :) i usually ask my sister or someone to help me with the FOTD & OOTD, but i do the swatches and products pictures my self :)

      best of luck!
