Recent Hair & Makeup

Here's a closer look at the makeup I was wearing my latest video! I've been loving "YDK" eyeshadow from my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette recently - it's such a pretty rose gold color. I like deepening the outer corner using "Tease" from the same palette and then smoking out a darker brown on my lower lash line. I recently bought the new YSL Touch Eclat Foundation (shade B60) which I have been so in love with! It's a very natural looking foundation since it's not fully matte. I powder down my T-Zone and leave the rest of the face looking slightly dewy. The blush I'm wearing is called "Melba" from MAC which is a great staple blush to have. It looks great on a lot of skin tones. My lipstick is "Fairest Nude" from L'Oreal with "Piree" lip gloss from NARS - love this combo. As for my hair, I just threw it up into a big top bun (usually my go to hairstyle on bad hair days). I show you how I do it in the end of this video - just fast forward a bit :)

  1. Hi Annie, great tips! I was wondering if you have experimented with BB Creams? I recently bought L'Oreals BB Cream because I read that it's great for oily skin (which I have too). So far I really do like it, but I cant figure out how to use it with concealer. Putting it on top of the BB Cream seems to make it cakey, and under seems to smudge the concealer into "non-existent". Maybe its the tools I'm using?

  2. that's a super pretty lip combo! Fairest nude is a little too nude for me so I may have to go look at that lip gloss from NARS to get that soft pink color now..lolz

  12. Hey Annie,

    You look really pretty, as always! Just wondering since you're half pakistani whether you wear formal pakistani outfits? If yes, could you share some of your makeup looks that you wear with them? Thanks!

  22. I love you Annie. You are inspiring. I was wondering if u can give some tips on how to take beautiful pictures. I'm not over weight but my photos alway come out that way. I seem to be the biggest girl in the photo. I'm not sure if make up will help.
