Look of the Day (LOTD) Baby Shower, Soft Pinks & Purple

Hey my little Cubs!

So this is the look I wore to a baby shower I was invited to.

Baby showers I always find are always an joyous event for everyone, and I always find myself looking and smiling when I see the mothers face when she’s looking down at the new life she carried, cared for, and welcomed into this world.  I always wish the parents the best of luck, and the baby the best in this world and the next.

Look of the Day (LOTD) Fall Weddings

Hey my little Cubs!

So a friend of my family got married last Sunday, so that means it was a fall wedding. And fall weddings are my favorite! Why you asked...because I get to go a little darker with my makeup than, let’s say, if I was going to a summer/spring wedding around 4ish.

Look of the Day (LOTD) Faerie Dust

Hey my little Cubs!

So more often than not, my makeup is what most people would call a little too much for during the day; but… I could care less what they think. Makeup is supposed to fun, so a purple/pinkish eye and an eggplant lip is just what my afternoon needed to brighten up my day!

Eid Ul-Adha 2013 Look of the Day (LOTD)

Hey my little cubs, how is everyone doing!?

So Eid ul-Adha was Tuesday, and like any other day I had no clue what I was going to wear, what my makeup was going to be or how I was going to do my nails.

So the night before I stole my older sister Abaya, and picked one of my hijabs in my favorite color, FIY its Purple!

And this is what I came up with!


Question: How far ahead do you pick out your outfit, makeup, and nails for a holiday?

When To Toss Your Makeup and Sanitation

Hey my little cubs, how is everyone doing!

So even though this question has been asked and answered more times than I can count, and anyone can simply Google it and it pops up everywhere, I still get asked this question quite often from both my clients, and family/friends alike.

Does makeup have an expiration date?
When should I toss my makeup?
When does makeup go bad?
How can I tell if it’s bad?
How can I keep my makeup clean and make it last longer?

Look of the Day (LOTD) Quick Colorful Party Look, When In a Rush

Hey Girls and Gents!

So this past weekend, a good friend of mine, had her Rukhsati, It’s an East Indian and Pakistanis’ thing for when the bride leaves her family’s house, and moves into her husband’s; in other words, it’s a going away party for the bride.

I knew I wanted to wear something purple as my outfit was purple, and I think purple looks pretty good on me, if I say so myself lol so I figured I'll go somewhat colorful with bits of glitter thrown in somewhere, also I was kind of in a rush, since I was doing the bride’s makeup and hair last minute.

Also when the wedding pictures come in, I’ll post them up!

Tea Party Look of the Day (LOTD) Tropical Bird Like & Party Pictures

Hey Girls and Gents!

So on June 1st the youth group I'm in; planned and hosted a ladies only tea for the MA, CT area.  We played games, ate loads of food and sweets, talked, gave out prizes, and most of all had some really yummy tea and everyone had an awesome time. So yay us! Also I meet some new people, yay me!

And since myself and another girl in the group were the MC’s of the event I wanted to really have my makeup pop so it could be seen from across the room, while I talk their ear off lol, and like always I did my makeup first and picked an outfit after, and this is what I came up with.

Look of the Day (LOTD) Bold and Beautiful with Glasses

Hey Girls and Gents!

So guess what? I have to wear glasses now!!!

Just joking; no I don't (but I'm sure I will soon enough), but I know a lot of people who do, including my sisters and mother, but from time to time I like pretending  I do, and when I wear it I still put on Eyeshadow.

So I thought why not do an easy everyday look, that you could wear if you wear glasses, and still wanted to make a statement with your makeup.

Just because you have to wear glasses doesn't mean you can't have on some eye makeup, but the most easy thing to do if  you have to wear glasses and you still want to my a bold statement with your makeup,  is making your Brows and Lips stand out.

And here is what I did, also if you want me to do more makeup looks for glasses, tweet me @HafsAR  or comment below.

ICNA 2013 & Bulbul Fashion Show... Look of the Day (LOTD) Saturday & Sunday

Hey Girls and Gents!

So I feel like I haven't posted in awhile, but hopefully I'm hoping to fix this, starting now; Better late than never right…

Anyway onwards I go…

Every year my family goes to ICNA, it’s an Islamic Conference that’s held In CT once a year, this year the date it was held was May 25th- May 27th, it offers things like Islamic Lectures, Workshops, Shopping, Food, and overall just spending time with other Muslims.

This year, like many before I heard some really great speakers like (Omar Suleiman, Nouman Ali Khan, Siraj Wahhaj & Yesir Qadhi) just to name a few, and did some shopping. But as I find myself getting older, I'm noticing I'm spending more time in lectures than shopping, the Sister Youth Group had its first ever Fashion Show with Bulbul clothing, this year at ICNA so you know I had to check it out.

Anyway here are the two looks I wear on Saturday and Sunday at ICNA 2013, and also I picture from the Fashion Show.
