Sandbagging trick !


Baking, sandbagging, contouring, highlighting, and the beauty list goes on and on and on… The latest beauty trick that’s trending among makeup artists at the moment is sandbagging.

A while ago, Kim Kardashian's Make-up  artist, Mario Dedivanovic, revealed the technique that prevents your makeup from creasing and lipstick from bleeding. The reality TV star's make-up artist Mario uploaded the sandbagging method on his Instagram, and I haven't stopped watching it since then.

Sandbagging involves dabbing heavy powder under your eyes and around the lips using a Beauty Blender  to create a "dam" that would prevent your makeup from running or "flooding." There’s nothing new to the technique as it’s a little similar to baking (which sort of revolves around highlighting using loose powder), however, sandbagging is just creating a physical barrier -using powder- to set your makeup in and prevent smudging.

YouTube sensation Wayne Goss explains the sandbag technique in his video on his youtube Channel .

How to Take Care of Your Hair With Hijab




While a headscarf can protect your hair from harmful sun rays, wind and polluted air, it makes some women take their hair for granted, as it's always covered when they're out and about. Veiled women of the world, please pay some attention to your hair! Not taking care of your hair under hijab might lead to hair fall and dryness, especially when you wear the wrong fabrics or you wrap your headscarf the wrong way.

For gorgeous, healthy looking hair, make sure to follow these tips to take care of your hair with hijab:

1. Make sure not to wrap the scarf over your hair tightly. This way, you will prevent your scalp from breathing, which leads to dryness, itchiness and future dandruff.

2. It's always better to wear scarves made of natural fabrics, such as cotton or silk. Other artificial fabrics could lead to hair breakage and split ends , as they cause friction with your hair.

3. If you decide to go for artificial fabrics like nylon and polyester, make sure to wear a bandana under your scarf to act as a protective layer.

4. Try to tie your hair in a loose ponytail or a bun under hijab. Pulling your hair tightly can weaken your hair strands and lead to hair fall.

5. Always try to change the way you part your hair from time to time. This prevents your front hair line from thinning and falling by time.

6. If you're wearing hijab from a long time ago, you might skip brushing your hair for a day or two, which could make your hair dryer. That's why you must not forget about brushing your hair at least twice per day, in order to have better blood circulation, and hence a healthier scalp.

7. When you arrive home, it's always better to untie your scarf immediately and let your hair loose for an hour or two. When you untie it from both the scarf and hair accessories, your scalp breathes better. 

8. Avoid wearing your scarf when your hair is still wet, so the dampness doesn't lead to dandruff. 

9. Massaging your scalp is the best way to maintain healthy hair with hijab, as it stimulates blood circulation and prevents dryness. Make sure to massage your scalp in a circular motion using natural oils daily for five minutes. Also consider giving your hair an effective treatment like a hair mask once per week, to help rejuvenate it and give it a healthy glow.

5. Now it's time to pour the hot drink into a glass pitcher. Be sure to use a strainer so that the leaves do not fall into the juice. 


6. Refrigerate the drink for a good 45 minutes so that is becomes fully cool. Tip, add some ice while drinking the hibiscus, it tastes exceptionally good when it is ice cold.

Your Weight During Ramadan



It’s a common misconception that LOSING WEIGHT in RAMADAN  is impossible. The long fasting hours during summer might drive people to overeat but no, it’s never impossible to stay in shape during Ramadan. Here's a list of things to consider to watch your weight during Ramadan.

Exercise: Plan to exercise at home. Exercise after breaking your fast by two hours, and you can also exercise an hour before Iftar. Don’t practice heavy exercises while fasting and right after fasting. Allow your body to chill and your digestive system to function properly. If you don’t have time to exercise then check the next tip...

Eat healthy: Substitute desserts with high calories and anything soaked in sugar or whipped cream with fruits. but you can still opt for a mini portion or satisfy your sweet tooth with one or two bites.

 Monitor your calorie intake: Control the quantity of the food you consume. Watch out on your portions because you might tend to rush and eat big amounts of food at once, which will leave your tummy full and exhausted! My personal advice is to get a pen and a paper and count the CALORIES in the food you eat. Get a paper, fold it, and put it in your pocket.

Reduce caffeine: While fasting, you won’t be able to get your regular cup of tea or coffee. In order not to suffer from a severe headache, try to cut out on the caffeine intake after Iftar or during Suhoor and preferably a while before Ramadan.

Get enough sleep: Sleep usually gets disturbed in Ramadan, it's completely normal. Yet sleep deprivation leaves your body fatigue, cause weight gain and low metabolism. Consider short naps.

Hydrate: Spread YOUR WATER INTAKE between dusk and dawn. In order to avoid dehydration, aim for eight cups of water per day. Water could be in juice, your favorite SMOOTHIE or a cup of milk.
