Is the Silisponge the new Beauty Blender?

I’m sure you’ve heard and seen all the fuss about this weird little clear object which resembles plastic and all the beauty gurus have been ravishing about how its changing their game of makeup. I too like most of you seen all this, but I wasn’t sold on a small, weird little plastic hanging my makeup game but being the curious being that I am, I obtained a Silisponge.

When it arrived I was astonished at how it looked, but it felt really soft and extremely cool on my hand. I was extremely sceptical about using it, and it lied on my table for a few weeks until recently, when I was obliged to use it as all my blenders were just washed, little had I known that this small, weird plastic would change my life!

The SiliSponge

 

The Silisponge is at first a bit challenging to use but once you get the hang of it, your face will thank you! I promise! Silisponge uses about a quarter of the amount of foundation that you usually use with a brush or blender, if you apply the normal amount which you usually use you will notice that the silisponge doesn’t work and it won’t blend because there’s way too much product. You have to actually get the hang of the amount of product you need in order for the sponge to work. This see through plastic is made out of silicone and encapsulated in a super- flexible material which called thermoplastic polyurethane, and this allows your products such as foundation, concealer, highlighter or creamy blush not to soak thus using less product.

And that’s not even the best part of the SiliSponge! Unlike your other applicators, its super easy to clean. You can rinse it clean with water and soap, wipe it with a clean cloth or if you in a hurry, you can wipe it with one of  your makeup wipe. That’s the absolute best part of the SiliSponge, you can wash or wipe and be on the go, the moment you are done! Unlike other applicators where you have to wait for hours. The only thing which I don’t like about the SiliSponge is that its a bit challenging blending around the nose and the inner corner of your eye, its going to take a little bit more practise to get the hang of that.

My verdict: Apart from that, I love the Silisponge and I do recommend going and getting yourself one immediately!

 

 

NYFW embraces the Hijab

While most of us were celebrating Eid and I was engrossed in the lovely world of assignments, Anniesa Hasibuan made history! I’m sure some of you are not too sure about who’s she and why she’s so important that she deserved a blog post plus respect and awe from me. Well let me clear all that up for you!

Whilst we all were Eid vibing, Anniesa Hasibuan made history by showcasing a hijab collection at NYFW. Yes, NEW YORK FASHION WEEK!! Anniesa is a 29- year old Indoniesian fashion designer from Jakarta, that has been displaying her work of modest wear at various fashion weeks but she certainly reached a milestone when her Spring/Summer 2017 (SS 17) was showcase during NYFW. The fashion industry welcomed this collection with open arms and there was nothing but ravishing about her and her collection.

The collection consisted of evening wear inspired from Indonesia and its fashion, classic techniques and a distinctive touch of the hijab. The hijab was worn with crystal- crusted eye wear, pajama pants and very chic layering. The collection consisted of a vast amount of pastels, embellishments made each garment stand out, silk kaftans and robes were layered in many ensembles. The final piece included an ensemble with multi-colored embellishments and a gorgeous trail with a matching hijab. The designer made the hijab look extremely trendy and a must have accessory this Spring and Summer.

How stunning is the final ensemble! Displaying a hijab collection in one of the most critiqued industries and them actually embracing shows how much we’ve moved forward in terms of modest wear and religion. While countries are banning the hijab, New York chose to be accepting and provided a platform to show the hijab and how it can be worn and still look stylish, chic and beautiful. The Indonesian culture plus the Islamic head scarf mixed with modesty and lots of embellishments definitely made a statement and will be talked about for years to come!

If you want to see more of the show and the stunning garments as these are only a few of the ensembles from the show, then watch the video below:

Biggest trends of 2014

2014 is almost over! I still can’t get over how fast it flew by. 2014 has been quite a year, and quite a fashionable one too. Here is a roundup of the biggest trends of 2014.

Crop Tops

celebrity-in-crop-top-trends

This was definitely the biggest trend of 2014. From the red carpet, to the catwalk, to street style, you couldn’t miss this trend. Depending on your body type, you should opt for one that flatters your body.

The Curly Bob

Celebrity-Hairstyles-2014-2015-Jennifer-Lawrence-Short-Haircut-2

A huge trend amongst celebrities currently. The trendsetter for this trend, was none other then Jennifer Lawrence. This trend was so gorgeous, that celebs flocked to their hairdresser to get the cut, even Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha who vowed never to chop her long locks, gave in to this trend and jumped on this wagon. After all short is the new chic!

Ombre

Another hair trend for this year, and I love it! If you not ready for serious commitment to a new hair color, opt for this trend. If the right color is used, this will enhance your features to the max.

Prints on prints

Prints on prints was probably the best thing to happen to fashion. Stripes on stripes, florals with stripes, polka dots and florals, the list is endless but thank goodness for this trend because now you don’t have to be so matchy-matchy, you can mix prints and still look super fab!

Colour- blocking

celebrities-wearing-bright-colour-blocking-2014Yes, its back and it has never looked this good. A huge trend this year, just make sure when you color blocking with two bright colors, there’s a neutral involved else your outfit is going to be way too loud.

Dark Lips

Shay-Mitchell-braid-makeup-lipstick-hair-2014-Teen-Choice-AwardsDefinitely the biggest makeup trend of the year. There hasn’t been an event this year without someone sporting this lip color. Whether its oxblood or burgundy, you sure will get heads turning with lip color like that, just make sure you choose the right color which will compliment your skin tone.
