Pink Wedensday :polka dots and ribbon

I'm back to pink Wednesday too,isn't that great??I'm beginning to feel (I'm normal) after being a robot doing the house work,teaching the kids ,and when night comes I'm completely exhausted..Thank god they finished...I'm back to life again ..take a look on this
Base: a light pink from a Turkish brand Carla ,they have a wide range of opaque colors in a cheap price.
Image plate :konad m 79 ..For the polka dots I used m 79 to save time doing it with a dotting tool.I stamped with konad special polish in dark purple .For the ribbon I used kiss liner in hot pink then I placed a pink rhinestone on the middle before it dries completely .
As u can see in the picture's inspired by my little daughter's hair brush..
Hope u like it.Thanks for looking..

velvet nails

Hello everyone:)
It has been along time since I did my nails ,my mood is more into makeup ,I missed my polishes ,I'm not buying much like before ..any way ..I just saw zoya Valerie standing there in the box ..what a pretty color to be ignored ..I wanted to do a mani with valerie.This is the result

I thought stamping doesn't work with matte polishes but yes it does work ,see the effect of the matte polish and how it gives a velvet look..
Base:zoya valerie
Image plate : Konad m 85  ,I stamped using zoya savita which is a very beautiful matte color.

What do think ladies ?? I'd love to see your comments ..Any matte colors that worked good with you ?plz let me know . have a nice day .

H and M makeup and swatches

Hi everyone
last week I passed by H&M to get some winter clothes for the kids.I know they have makeup but I never think of it..I got some polishes and they are really good,the plan was some more polishes but after I saw the makeup the whole plan is changed and instead of buying polishes ,take a look what I got !!!
 And here are the swatches ( on bare skin without primer or base)
First and second row from the top
3rd row
4th row
Although the palette have nice colors but it is hard to pick the eye shadow,I had to dig in the eye shadow to swatch it !!! it's price is 3.5 kd (12.69$) yes it is a good price for all these colors but if u want my advice don't buy it! the good deal is in the next palette
This palette is great ,very opaque colors , blendable and well pigmented !!check out the swatches

have you seen how pretty they are!!! this palette is called mickey go go go and has the disney trade mark on the back .This one really worth it.

Blushers :
L-R:17- tawny rose,18-sweet rose

These blushers are nice ,easy to apply ,smooth and well pigmented.hey cost about 2.5 kd (9.07$)check the swatches
Bronzing powder
their bronzing powder is very smooth ,easy to apply and blendable ,it comes in two sizes one small for your bag and a big one ,i took the big one ,it is matte ,no shimmer ,see the swatch

If you didn't check H&M cosmetics yet ,I think it is  the time !! have you ever tried their makeup ? what do you think of it?

Makeup forever Sculpting kit and sculpting blushers

Hello ladies:)
I passed by makeup forever and I can't stop by without buying makeup :) I needed new blushers so I got  these two
L-R: no 8,no 22
each one is 5.700 kwd  that is almost  20.700 $ .They are  cheaper than M.A.C and the same quality.They are soft ,easy to blend and long lasting .Not too shimmery like Bourjois  or chalky like Rimmel.I just love love love makeup forever .Check the swatches

I noticed the sculpting kit ,I usually don't do face contouring ,it is not for every day and every where ,but this kit is different so why don't I give it  a try ?? I tried a quick contour for the cheek bones ,I was satisfied with result  .I picked kit no. 1  because it is the lightest ,I don't want a dark one ,it will look over on my light skin .
  They showed me  a double ended  brush  to use with this kit,one end is slanted ended brush to use with dark color  to sculpt while the other end is rounded to illuminate and up light with the light color.I didn't buy it because I have my M.A.C brushes and they can do the job
Sigma f35,M.A.C 138,M.A.C 168 

Have u tried contouring your face? What is your way to do it? which products do u prefer?? waiting for your answers.
