Smokin Hot Smokey Eyes!

Smashbox was up to something good when they created this powerful threesome! The beige, taupe-brown and black are the perfect shade for created that smokey eye. Go all over with the taupe-brown for an all day sexy look, or use the black with brown on the crease for a dramatic smokey eye that will make you feel like a diva. The formulas are also super silky and stay on blend incredibly well. For all day wear, use with a eyeshadow primer like MAC Paints in Base. Use all together and enjoy the sexiest smokey eye you will find in a kit!

Available at Sephora

Controlling that Shine!


 

Huda I need your help! What do you recommend for oily skin?! Sometimes my skin is super dry then after a long day of makeup, some areas get oily. And hate breakouts! What should I use? ♥

 

Hey baby! Yes, breakouts are the worst! Whenever I suffer from any breakouts I always avoid using any oil-based products like foundation and some concealers.

If your skin feels dry early on, you may want to adjust your facial regiment. Drier weather can call for the use of moisturizers that are a little more intense. One that I love and it seems to work on all my clients no matter what the climate and skin type is Kiehls Ultra Moisturizer. It’s formula is not too thick, yet it provides intense moisture

I would then switch to a mineral foundation, like MAC Mineralize foundation http://www.maccosmetics.com/product/spp.tmpl?CATEGORY_ID=CAT158&PRODUCT_ID=1685, seriously love this product! I would avoid using any liquid foundations if you are prone to breakouts.

As for controlling the oil during the day, my favorite blotting sheets, and this is totally necessary if your skin starts looking shiny during the day (like mine), are the Shiseido blotting sheets. The Rosemary extract and Zinc Oxide in these blotting sheets keep your skin from looking oily again and also prevent breakoutshttp://sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P173647&shouldPaginate=true&categoryId=5337#moreInfo! Seriously a wonder worker!

I know it seems like a lot, but I use to struggle with breakouts pretty bad. Until I understood what worked best with my skin, I was pretty much spotted, which was NOT fun! But now I feel like I have control because I use the right products and it’s liberating! Try this doll and let me know how this works!

A Little Massage Goes a Long Way



Desperate for longer hair fast? About a year ago, I cut some bangs that I was bored of by the second month. The problem? My hair was just NOT growing! So I remembered hearing that massaging your scalp is good for hair growth–boy is it! My bangs grew more in two months than it had in over 4 months!

What I did? It was simple! You can increase your growth by simply massaging for a few minutes a night. If your hair is dull and not growing at the rate you are looking for, a thorough massage will help improve blood flow and increase nourishment to the hair follicles, resulting in more lustrous locks and rapid hair growth.Massaging your scalp helps spread the natural oils throughout the hair and makes it look more shiny and radiant. No need for fancy expensive products! You already have what you need! Now all you need is a little massage! Feel free to indulge and enjoy!

Fan Questions Answered!

Hey Huda,
I have a question I was hoping you might know the answer to since you’re a beauty expert! What method/cleaning product would you suggest for cleaning make-up brushes? And how often do you recommend we do it? Thank you!

Hey sweetie!!

I have tried just about every brush cleaner out there! My favorite one is the MAC brush cleaner, it works really well for removing all of the makeup on my brushes and it does that with little product, which is great! I do recommend cleaning them once a week. Of course if you are a makeup artist, you should clean them after every use! 🙂

Also, you might want to try giving them a nice wash in Shampoo and Conditioner. You can do this in place of using the brush cleaner or after for easier removal (the shampoo takes a bit longer to remove the color). See More

Another cool tip: Try using Olive oil as a step before shampooing. It will give your brushes extra life and make them super soft!

Quick Note: At all cost, do not let the water go past the metal part of the brush (feral). If it does, it could cause rotting of the wood!

In case you need any more details on this or anything else, definitely feel free to let me know:)
