Beauty Tip of the Day

Dan mintalah pertolongan (kepada Allah) dgn jalan sabar dan mengerjakan
sembahyang; dan sesungguhnya sembahyang itu amatlah berat kecuali kepada orang-orang yang khusyuk.

Al-Baqarah 2:45


Makeup - current favs

During school, I'm one of many that have to fight with acne. Mother. Spent a lot for skincare items for me. Having acne,  though not as bad as some people, does take away some of my confidence level. And going to a girl's school during lower form, does helped me in gaining my confidence back. Tak perlu nak malu sangat dah. So when I started work I did invested in high ends skincare brands. But do bear in mind,  at that time, I already meet the Gynae and the dermatologist. So the acne problem actually was caused by PCOS. I'll share about my PCOS journey some other time. 
Masa jumpa Dermatologist, and it was during Degree, guna Cetaphil. After a while, it doesn't worked anymore. So bila dah start kerja, I tried Clinique, and I was obsessed. Not only daily skincare nak guna Clinique,  make up pun nak brand Clinique juga. Foundation, Lippies pun nak juga. Sometimes dapat free mascara or eye liner. Until, wife adik ipar letak Mary Kay as hantaran. And
 She gave a good feedback. So, masa kahwin, muka start problem balik. Bila set Clinique dah habis, I moved to Mary Kay pula. Dah 3 months,  dah notice improvement. And still using until now. Cuma, masa start Mary Kay ni, dah start balik with PCOS treatment. So can be factor juga. Yes, I go for high ends. Sebab dulu dah pernah guna yang murah or locally and and it doesn't worked. But I never tried DNars. Ada orang review bagus.

So for make ups,  I do spend a lot too. Now dah tau what's nice and nak hbskn apa yg ada. My cosmetic item, I'll put expiry and the date I started using. So that I know this item berapa lama baru habis. Or bila dah expired, and kena buang. Muka sensitif kan. Hihi. Mostly, belum expired dah habis guna dah. Eyeshadow jelah tak habis habis.

On left is Laura Mercier's setting powder in trial pack. Beli masa kena andam orang dulu. Now nak habiskan. This powder is nice. Padanlah mak andam pakai. 
Right is Foundation Duo by Victoria Jackson(VK) . Macam Creme Foundation. I am not a fan of creme foundation tapi sebab now muka normal/dry since lepas bersalin. Dulu muka jenis normal to oily. 
I'll wear these together.

Mary Kay CC Cream
Untuk masa malas nak pakai Creme Foundation. Hoho!

Atas: Mary Kay
Bawah: Revlon
Will pick nak guna ikut mood. Dah habis nanti, nak beli Age Rewind Maybelline pula. Dah masuk Watson's yay!

Yang bawah ni yg dlm hand bag, khas untuk kalau tak sempat make up kat rumah. Dalam kereta la gamaknya. 

Left: VK powder
Right:  ZAblusher

Atas: Clinique Quickliner for Eyes - very nice for my sensitive eyes. Tapi $$$ betul. Now nak tengok can tahan berapa lama untuk habis
Bawah: Urban Decay 24/7 waterliner - can tahan smudge most of the time if pakai at waterline bwh mata

Atas: Clinique Lengthening Mascara - senang nak basuh guna air tapi kalau kuat peluh senang smudge.
Bawah: Revlon Bold Lacquer? Waterproof. Not clumpy.
If nak waterproof, I'll use Revlon's.

I have sensitive eyes,  so I prefer Clinique's. Tapi $$$ la. Now dah ada anak, memang terasa. Masa belum ada anak, tak terasa sangat. So menabung la sikit kalau dah nak sangat kan. 😀

All in all, kalau muka bukan jenis sensitif,  and tak suka make up, beli brand kat Watsons ke Guardian ke Caring ke pun OK dah. Kalau nak gi Sephora, brand NYX pun murah dan OK lagi. Mohon jangan terjebak.

So that's all.
Take careee.

Took me 2 hrs to type using fon. My tempered glass retak. Keyboard jadi high wire.

You know what’s beautiful?

Your eyes blinking, your pupils dilating when you’re euphoric, the curve of your smile, the shade of your teeth, the arch of your back, the fingers typing, the breathing thing you do, the thoughts. Your thoughts. How you think is beautiful; how a thought comes to mind is…a miracle, how you operate, how you are; just you. In every sense of the word; all your blood cells, neurons, organs, your limbs, your soul. You are breathtaking, mashaa’Allaah.


You can’t control the things that happen to you but you can control the way you react to them. It’s all perception.
