[014] In case you forgot what I look like..



I haven't done one of these in ages, probably because I've not been in the mood to take photographs and also because my skin and lack of sleep has meant I look pretty rough 99% of the time! Over the weekend me and a friend went out, nothing major but just an excuse to make a bit of an effort. I wore my hair straight as I haven't in absolutely ages I can't believe how long it it, you can't really see in these pics but WOAH! I used a straightening shampoo, conditioner and styling cream from Umberto Giannini considering we were inside a club and it was so so stuffy my hair didn't frizz or anything which was quite impressive. My hair is still super straight this morning which can only be a good thing.

I have also been so pale lately that even my lightest foundations seem a little colourful, however I have settled for MAC studio fix fluid in NC 43.5, it seems to be doing the job! I am also so so still in love with navy blue everything.. especially eye-makeup.

There are two products that I have previously blogged about but really have been such firm favourites and I have been using them daily for what seems like weeks! These are MAC 'Modesty' lipstick and NARS 'Madly' blusher..LOVE LOVE LOVE. Also my eyebrows seem to be pretty thin at the moment, I guess I don't mind because I quite like the shape so many thanks to my girl Dipti at Blink who does my brows when I'm feeling too lazy. Also I get a lot of comments from people about what I use for my brows, well my hair is jet black and my eyebrows are naturally quite dark I do however use MAC's 'Carbon' e/s on an angled brush to fill in the gaps.

  16. Zara, you look amazing! and what color do you have on your nails, it's THE red I am looking for

  17. WoW! Can only repeat what others have said. Your FOTD is amazing. The way you have done your eyes is how I attempt to do mine but fail miserably. But now I know what you use that may help...

  18. Madly looks great on you! You always have great FOTD(s)!
    I'm sad the weekend is over, but I saw some pretty great movies: The Rite and The King's Speech. Have you seen any of those yet?
    I've been reaching for my MAC Innocence Beware l/s and my MUFE lip liners. (:


  19. You are so gorgeous! I'm sure you have heard this before, but you look like Kim Kardashian!

  20. Your stunning! I effin' love your eyebrows, you already know this. I am gonna need to buy carbon, I am not used to powder, I use the eyebrow pencil from MAC in stud. I pretty much want your eyebrows, so if its carbon you use, I am gonna be using it too.
    I didn't now MAC had 1/2 shades for foundation. My 1st time trying their foundation, the girl gave me NW43, when I was buying it, it was NC50, after that finished, I got NW43, asked for sample, got NW45. I am like what the hell? Does my face change colors every week?
    Anyways, great FOTD. So pretty much I wanna steal your eyebrows, && your makeup skills. Yeah...


  21. I love your hair and you look lovely as always.

  22. You are looking impeccably well-groomed! Perfect skin, eyebrows, lashes and hair. I am also in love with navy make-up. Like art, the right shade makes brown eyes and tan complexions pop and glow more than black or brown. I am also currently in <3 with Revlon Top Speeds Lily and Stormy, NYX lipglosses, Everyday Minerals and other all natural products.


  23. There's a movie called "India, a love story", Maïa (leadrole) looks just like you, an indian beauty.

  24. You look lovely... We've missed your face lol!

    & your eyebrows always look amazingx
