Today I'm here to share with you my May & June favorites, so without further ado here they are..
 *Monthly Favorites Dance*

First lets start with my beauty favorites

Ronnie red MAC lipstick

Its a twist from the normal Red color, i am loving wearing this with golden eyeshadows.

 This is a gorgeous pink; its is a statement all by its self, i love wearing this with blue eyeliner or a black cat eye.

Notice how much i am loving bright lipsticks?? well this one is no different this orange is unlike any orange, its like a mix of orange and red, i always get complements whenever i wear it.

Electric blue H&M eyeliner

 my favorite blue eyeliner, i love how this has a metallic finish to it plus it is so easy to apply.

Fit me Maybelline concealer

 i bought this when i was in a hurry and my mac pro long wear  concealer was finished, this turned out to be the best concealer i have tried, its easy to apply and it blends flawlessly.

H&M bronzing powder

 This product is a basic thing for me, i always have it in reach even if its not what I'm using at the time, but these past months i have rediscovered the glory that is this bronzer, i use it to contour and it does an amazing job at it.

Prom Princess MAC blush

What can i say about this other than I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT.

The Hilal of Ramadan

Hello darlings,

Well it’s that time of the year again, a time where it comes down to how strong your faith is and how much you’re heart and soul wants Allah’s Mercy.
It’s Ramadan...
Ramadan is my favorite month, I love everything about it, the general atmosphere, going to the mosque, reading Quran with the family, staying up late, visiting family and of course the food!!
If I should write everything I love about the month I would still be here after days writing, so anyhow the point of my post today is just to say “Mubarak 3aleekm elshahar, w allah yt8abal mina w mnkm 9ali7 el a3mal”

I’ll leave you off with some tips to keep your skin and body healthy while fasting:
1-  Drink loads of water when you break your fast, just not all at once, instead drink water between your meals it will keep your skin and body hydrated.

1-  Eat moderately when you break your fast, your stomach hasn't had a thing in over 10 hours so don’t just go and stuff yourself with loads of food, your stomach needs to readjust or else you will just feel stuffed and your stomach might act up, I know it all looks and smells so good but don’t worry you have loads of time later to enjoy it.

1-  Get enough sleep, remember your body is running on that meal that you had early at dawn so you might feel a bit tiered and fatigued so just try to rest to regain some energy.

1-  Use moisturizer on daily bases, I know most girls tend to not wear a lot of makeup in Ramadan, if your thinking of doing that remember that moisturizer is your best friend, it will help keep your face hydrated and prevent breakouts caused by dehydration.

1-  Eat fresh fruits and vegetables because they are rich in water and fiber. They help reduce thirst, plus you’ll be stocking up on vitamins.
