Ramadan 2012 Outfits of the Day (OOTD) First Ten Days/Night

Hey Girls & Gents,

Ramadan Mubarak to all my Muslim readers!!!

Once a year, in the month of Ramadan Muslim’s have a Salat (prayer) called Taraweeh; that we pray after our last obligatory prayer of the day. Most Muslims try and make this prayer because of its blessing and reward that comes from standing during the night after a day of fasting. This during that time one chapter of the Qur’an is being said. 

Anyway if you have any question about Ramadan or anything at all, I’ll be more than happy to answer them J

Anyway on to the post…

Every night during Ramadan I’ll be taking a picture of my Outfit or Makeup; & posting the pictures every ten days. So it’s like Ramadan OOTD/LOTD kind of thing. Also just to point out, comfort is key when picking outfits for the night prayer, since it’s a lot of standing. & a lot of people so it tends to get hot.

DIY Lipstick Palette, Take 2!

Hey Girls & Gents,

Here is another DIY Lipstick Palette idea, that’s affordable, and that won’t make you want to cry over it if it breaks during a Gig or Traveling.

After having used my old DIY Palettes for a few months now on different Gigs, I wanted to minimize and have two, not four or five palettes on the table while doing my Client.

 As most of us Makeup Lovers know, de-potting and palettes are a must for our MUA Kits for saving space and finding things fast. Time is money!

I happened to come across this empty well paint palette at Michael’s, when I was buying some jars for my pigments; as soon as I saw these I knew it would work great for my kit.

Keep reading after the pictures I’m going to give my pro/cons for both DIY Palettes!

NYX Ultra Pearl Mania Storage

Hey Girls & Gents.

These last few weeks I’ve been cleaning my vanity and re-organizing it; giving away the things I don’t use anymore, and throwing away the old things.

 I have a pretty decent amount of makeup and sometimes I forget things I used to love, and only use my new glittery makeup L 

One of the things I came across that I nearly forgot about is my NYX Ultra Pearl Mania Pigments. I used to love these little guys, and used them daily. They are super pigmented and easy to blend.

I think one of the main reasons why I haven’t been using them as of late is because the bottle opening is so damn small, and it’s hard to get your brush inside! I remember I used to tap a small amount onto my mixing palette, and work off it, which is what I still do, for sanitary purposes. 

Anyway, I went to Michaels and got a set of small clear bead holders (set of 30) to put them into which is perfect because that’s how many colors they come in. I find it’s a lot easier to get the product out, and it looks so pretty. So it’s a win win for me!
