Hijab/Scarf Storage Ideas, & How I Store Mines

Hey Girls & Gents!

In this post I’m going to give y’all some ideas on how to store your Hijabs or Scarves .

As a hijabie I have the problem of having one to many hijabs, if you’re a hijabie you know what I’m talking about lol, hopefully this will give you some ideas, and help you out some, and if you have any storage ideas let me know.

I find that they all work great, depending on what your looking for and how many hijabs you have and what type of space you have, also I’ll show you how I organize mine. 

Cutain Rod, with Hangers
this is a picture of how i store mine, all the same colors go onto the same hanger , it makes it easier when i'm putting together an outfit, i just grab the color hanger i want and choices from there

this is how i twist and knot the  hijabs when placing them on to the hangers
Butterfly Scarf Hanger (Bed, Bath & Beyond)
I find these are very cute, but not so good to hold lots of scarfs on, best used for neck scrafs

A regular hanger with Shower Hooks (an easy DIY, anyone can do, use wood, not plastic hangers)
this is one of my favorite ones, because you can just hang it, in your closet

How to Apply Eyeliner 101

Hey everyone!

This post is going to be about how to apply basic eyeliner, I’m going to try and keep it as easy as possible, with some easy step by step tips.

v  First I like to tilt my chin slightly up facing a mirror, at this point you should be able to see down your nose; this will make it easier for you to see your whole eyelid for applying eyeliner.
v  Then I like to gently hold my eyelid upward at an angle. I almost always start at my inner corner making small  connected lines across my lid placing the liner as close to the lashline as possible, so that you won’t have any skin between the liner and lashes.
v  If you’re using a pencil liner and it’s freshly sharpen, roll the tip between your fingers to soften the tip so you won’t have a hard line (unless that’s what you’re aiming for, go for it)
v  If your using liquid liner, apply it using small feathering strokes, start at the inner corner once again and working your way out
v  If you find the line is still too hard for you or if you just want the liner to last longer apply a similar colored eyeshadow over the liner to soften the look.

Ø  Note: this method can be used for any type of eyeliner, and with it being so many colors out there, you can really go crazy with just some eyeliner.

Hopefully these tips help you some, let me know by commenting or email me!

Peace n' Love<3

How to Apply Mascara 101

OMG this is my 100th post on Blogger!!!

Hey Girls & Gents!

This post is all about Mascara, I’m going to quickly go through a few key points of things I think everyone who wears mascara should know, also if you think I forgot anything or have any tips you want to share please comments below… okay let’s get this going!

Colored Mascara: 

Now black mascara works wonderfully for almost about anyone, don’t get me wrong, but I feel that a lot of people forget about the other equally wonderful colors out there like… Black/Brown, Blue, Purple mascaras, and thinks it’s always good to mix it up every now and again.

v  For the Light Skinned Blondes girls/gents out there; black/brown mascara is perfect for the daytime and will give your eyes a very nice awake fresh look, but don’t throw out your black mascara tubes! Just save it for the nighttime and apply it when you’re done with that sexy smoky eye you've been working on!
v  For my Blue Eyed babies out there, Blue mascara will brighten your eyes and stop ‘em dead!
v  And for my Brown Eyed vixens’ out there, Purple mascara is really going to make our eyes pop!
v  Don’t worry I didn’t forget about my Green Eyed sweethearts’ out there,  Black & Plum mascara are going to make everyone envious of your eyes!
