Hello Guys!

I am a foundation junkie and believe it to be the one make up product that can totally elevate your mood and make you feel like an improved version of yourself.I also like a natural finish and this one promised:

" A comfortable, long-wearing foundation that gives up to 15 hours of wear in any environmental condition. Lightweight and creamy, applies and blends easily leaving the skin feeling soft and free to breathe all day while controlling oil. Specially treated micronized pigments help give a smoother, more flawless, natural finish with stay-true color."

My thoughts:

I love using Mac Studio Fix but decided to switch up and try the Pro Longwear.MAC has not yet failed to please me. It is very light and gives  VERY full coverage, I only need a pump and a half  and my whole face is flawless. I am far from flawless. I have redness around my nose and an uneven skin-tone.I always get compliments when I wear this because my skin looks like SKIN, not foundation. Not a mask.

when it says "pro longwear" they really do mean that. My face makeup doesn't budge when i have this on. I ll have had this foundation on for hours and it'll look like i just applied it to my face. It even holds my blush all day which is a huge plus for me because of the Hijab, and yes guys it is Sweat proof haha.

I only have one complain about this foundation and that is you cannot make a mistake after applying this. Removing mascara/eyeliner smudges after the foundation sets is very hard, almost impossible. You cannot remove it without leaving a black gross streak on your face.

I apply it with my fingers. It is very tricky to apply. You have to apply it in small sections. it dries super quickly so you gotta put it on fast. But if you need to go over any areas you missed or need to touch up, it will cake. You need to make sure you exfoliate your face often and moisturize your face well when using these types of foundations. It will make a world of a difference in the way your foundation applies and looks, trust me. It will sink into your skin rather than sit on top of it and blending will be a breeze. If you want heavier coverage make sure you apply it in thin layers, not all at once. I like medium coverage and I can definitely get it from one thin layer as you only need to use a tiny bit of this product.

Over all i am really amazed with this foundation. Amazing coverage,a little over priced but its worth it. Definitely gonna purchase it again

it Retails for 32$  LINK!

Oh I probably wouldn't recommend it for people with very dry skin.
i got mine from MAC's website.
if you live in Pakistan then you can also get it from LINK! They sell it for 5290/RS on their website.

Thanks for reading and don't forget to leave your comment in the section below telling me about your favorite foundation.

Miami pink is a very beautiful neon orange pink color. it looks more pink in the bottle and more coral/orange on the  nails,which looks very pretty in the sunlight and is a really fun color for summer n spring. 

As for the nail polish itself, it is quite sheer with one coat and is very opaque with two. When I look at my nails in the light, I can see my nail line, so i prefer three coats.The formula is creamy and dries quickly. I was able to apply a second coat within a minute. The finish is actually very shiny. A top coat is totally optional.

Coral is one of my favorite colors and i am also wearing my favorite coral lipstick on my lips today which will debut on my blog very soon.
This Nail Polish can be found at Forever 21 stores LINK!.

Whats on your nails? don't forget to tell me in the comment section below.

Beauty Blogger Tag

Hello Guys!

I love ready and watching Tag posts and videos. They are so much fun. I did few of them on my old blog which is unfortunately no longer working. My friend Hera did one last month, I suggest you all to check her BLOG out, and she is super creative with hair styling. So I decided to do that one too. 
Let’s jump right into it!

1. Name a beauty routine you hardly do.
I hate wearing sunscreen and I always forget to moisturize my lips before applying lipstick.

2. Is washing your brushes something that you regularly do?
I wash my brushes every two to three weeks.

3. How long do you wear chipped nail varnish?
Ah! I am very lazy with removing my nail polish. I would say 1 week hehe.

4. How often do you buy/replace a beauty item or nail polish, if you need it? 
I always have a backup of my favorite beauty and bath products.

5. What is your worst beauty habit?
I hate wearing sunscreen and I avoid wearing it intentionally which is very bad. I know!! :(.

6. Name something (non-beauty) thing that you tend to put off all the time.
That's easy... I hate confrontations.

7. When going out somewhere do you keep getting ready until the last-minute? 
It really depends on where I am going, as I can get ready in a few minutes. But! Recently after getting married I can get ready in 40 minutes that includes taking shower, getting dressed, makeup, scarf and accessories.

8. Can you commit to spending bans?
Not really, I am a big spender.

9. How organized is your make up and nail polish collection?
It’s pretty organized. Everything is properly placed and I put things back on the right place.

10. What is the longest time you have gone without writing a blog post?
Oh My Goodness! I was out of the blogging world for more than 13 months i.e. my old blog For some reason that blog is not working anymore. So I made a new one :). I was getting married; I was not able to give full attention to my Old blog. But now I am back in a full swing.

Hope you enjoyed this tag. I am tagging all of you. Leave your feed back in comment box below or if you create a post on this then don't forget to share the link below I would love to see your answers :)
