Rida's (Beauty) Recommendation's

I have to admit I had way to much fun taking these photos with a bunch of different effects so please don't mind the different lighting's in pictures! Anyway, it's been a long time since I've done one of these so I thought I'd do one. Simple. 

1.Argan Oil 
This is amazing and I think I've mentioned it once before. It really helps my hair since my hair hurts often and sometimes even falls. I hate the feeling when I want to brush my fingers through my hair but I can't since it hurts so much. This is definitely something I take when traveling. 
2.Scunci Hair ties
I have really thick hair and a lot of it too so I need a reliable hair tie that I know won't break and will go around my ponytail 3 times. I bought these from CVS for about $3-4 . They're really cheap and amazing.

2.Dior show Blackout Mascara
I love this mascara. It adds a great amount of length to my lashes and the wand is really easy to use. The mascara lasts the hold day and also doesn't feel heavy on your lashes.
3.Great Lash
This is my mascara that I use if their nothing else or if I don't want to add too much length.It wand is easier to use and something just makes me feel more comfortable using this wand. I feel this mascara is a little more chunky and it wears off fast too. 

4.Ulta Eyeshadow
I love these eye shadows.Their show easy to apply and are so soft. You can take it off easily and it stays a long while too. I also love these to shades because I feel that these are wonderful shades for people with brown eyes, so brownies this is more of a recommendation for you but you other colored eyes can pull it off too . :) In between both of these, I would say that Gold Leaf is better color wise since I'm not a very big purple fan.

5.L'oreal  HIP Metallic Eyeshadow Shocked Palette
This palette gives more of the metallic looks which is great. I wouldn't apply too much of it at a time though.Also, the applier that came with was great so I didn't have to clean out a brush. The shadow it self was really great.

 6.Bobbi Brown Eye pencil : Jet 
This pencil is actually sharper I just don't  know where my sharpener is. Anyways, this pencil is really smooth and easy to apply but it only stay for have the day.

 7.Rimmel Gel Liner #001
This is my favourite gel liner ever. Actually, scratch that. I love all gel liners. They are so easy to use and fast. They're pretty neat, if you have a steady hand and wonderful for beginners. They come off easily but stay long too. Most of makeup look include this liner.

Photography is cool :)

 8. & 9.Lakmé Lipstick Enrich Mattes #453 & #421 
This shade looks a little brown but it's actually  a deep purple. It's not as deep as #421 but still deep. Both of these lipsticks are really moisturising and you really easy to move around on your lips. They give off a really color in one swipe so I would definitely recommend these. Plus, it's fall. :) 

10.L'oreal Lipstick #250
This lipstick is a little bit more matte then the Lakmé lipsticks but it's still pretty smooth. The color stays pretty long but I'm not too fond of the color then I am with the rest. Actually, the next couple of lip products are in the same color scheme. I barely wear these but they're still really awesome lipsticks. 

11.Revelon Color stay Lipstick #035
This lipstick is really matte, basically like a lip crayon. It has a really nice color and is easy to apply. Nothing very special though.
12.Maybeline Lipstick #175 
This lipstick is so soft and moisturizing. It's pretty much like the L'oreal one but a little less matte. 

13.L'oreal Lipstick #320
Yup. Same picture. This is actually one of my favorite lipstick shades but it got jacked up so I threw it away. Its the same as the other L'oreal lipstick just different shades.

Hope you guys likes this post!

The Hunger Games:Mockingjay Part.1 Movie Review

Yesterday, Prachi and I went to go watch Mockingjay Pt.1 and let me just tell you that it was  amazing. I'll do 2 paragraphs. 1 with no spoilers and 1 with spoilers. Hope you enjoy! 

So,the movie was amazing but if you haven't watched any of the previous movies or read the books you won't get whats happening.I felt that the director, Francis Lawrence, did a great job with the scenes and gave us a better view of what was going on. In the book, Suzanne Collins gives us a lot of detail and Francis did a great job showing all that. After all, these places play a huge job in Katniss' actions later on in the rebellion. This movie wasn't very violent but had a pretty gory theme. It would have easily scared a younger child with all the death. Also, the child won't get whats happening since this movie had more of a deeper meaning. The acting was done well. You could see the characters in the actors and you believed them. I felt that the casting job was done wonderfully. My favourite part of the movie was probably when Jen sang The Hanging Tree and I have been listening to that on replay since last night and memorized it. Now for some spoilers. 


I felt Josh did a wonderful job playing hijacked Peeta and it really mad us sad for Katniss. Also, you see her feelings develop for Peeta but you can see she's stuck with something with Gale that she can't figure out.It seems that Gale stops looking at her in a loving way so that was something. I loved how Effie and Haymitch supported her since they were the only people who knew her as she actually is. Also, you see her breaking down after the games after seeing Peeta in the capitals promos and how that kinda weakens her but also makes her a bit stronger. The part that got me was when Peeta tried to kill her and you could see how hard is was for her. Another heartbreaking Peeta movie was when she had a nightmare and she called Peeta in her dream and her comforted her but then she woke up alone. 

Now, for some pictures! 

Doesn't Jen have the best cry face

Francis did a wonderful job with the symbolism of the white roses

The movie had great coordination

Francis gave us a feel of the place with the power of the lens

Lastly a self made gif :) This part was awesome

My favourite part of the movie was Jen singing. Take a listen ↑

Braided into a Braid

I know we haven't done a hairstyle in a in a few weeks but today I'm here to show you a braided look that works casually and formally. For this look all I did was french braid the side parts of my hair until I reached the end of the hair.Then, I tied them each with an elastic so I could braid the other side. Later, I took both of the braids and braided those into 1 big braid with the with the leftover hair from the middle hair.To to tie that off I just used a regular hair tie.

Hope you guys like this post!

Study Tips :)

I'm pretty sure its not just me, but I'm already tired of school. It's barely been the 4th month of school (for me) and my back hurts, I'm finishing HW late, and I'm sleepy :( (we all are face it.) So here are 7 study tips that work for me! 

1. Keep your phone far way 

We all get distracted and end up wasting 30-45 minutes on our phones try to keep your phone away so that you can focus more on your HW. Remember to keep it on silent unless you can stand the "DING!" 

2. Plan what your going to do

Try to figure out what HW you have for that day. For example, if you have to practice an instrument make sure to do it earlier so you don't distract sleeping people if you tend to procastinate or you do your HW until late at night.

3. Color code agenda

This tip has worked wonders for me. I color coded my agenda like this :
Yellow- HW due the next day
Orange- Things I have to do like study or refill binder paper
Green- Tests and Quizzes
Pink- Events

4.Study In a good environment

This is something I need to work on. My room and desk is a mess and hope to organize it soon! The enviornment really changes your working speed and focus. Whenever I go to the library to work I finish my work faster since I'm more focused and don't have the choice to watch T.V. while working.

5. Take Breaks

 You do this without noticing. Try to talk to others or yourself (we all do it),stretch ,eat ,etc..Just take a couple breaks so you can focus a bit better. If you don't do this you will find yourself on your phone :)

6. Organize Your Mochila (backpack)!

Keep your backpack organized! If you don't do this you will easily misplace assignments and it's be a pain to find things when your teacher wants them after a whole unit... I would suggest dividers with dividers inside of those dividers.. did you get that?


Now this is a must for me when I'm memorizing words or phrases.I can't just look at a paper and not glance at the answer a little to the right or left.If you're having trouble organizing them, just buy a flashcard holder from Walm-Mart or make your own!

Happy Studying!-Rida
