New years eve makeup look, Eylure lashes, Glitter and Mac Ruby woo

Hi Beauties,

Just another quick makeup look.  With New year Parties going on and everyone getting all glammed up, I decided to have a play with some makeup and came up with this look.  It was so much fun creating it.  Depending on your personality I think it is a very daring look to wear out but also very  glamorous, for me I think the lashes really finish this look and the Lipstick.... tell me what you guys think....


Smashbox photo finish primer
Clarins Everlasting Foundation 110 Honey
Clarins Mineral loose powder 03 Dark
Sleek Contour kit
Benefit Fake up concealer in 01 light
MAC powder blush 'well dressed'
MAC bronzing powder Refined Golden


NARS Smudge proof eyeshadow base
NARS soft touch shadow pencil in black (for the crease as a dark base)
Bourjois intense colour pot in Brown (this I layered on top of the Nars black pencil)
NARS White shimmer eyeshadow (blended from the brown cut crease shadow to the brow bone)
Vaseline and Loose gold glitter mixed together and dabbed onto the actual eyelid.
Bourjois Kohl and contour to line the waterline and under the lower lash line.
Eylure Intense eyelashes 145


Benefit Browzings in medium
MAC studio finish concealer NC20 (to outline the brow)



There you go thats what you will need to re-create this look too.  As I mentioned it was so much fun and glitter got everywhere.  Follow me on Instagram where I will post a quick clip of this makeup look so you can see it not in picture form, you can find at @beautybyhanan

Hair mask recipe for hair growth and shiny hair. Using olive oil, lemon and honey.

Hi Beauties,

I recently put a picture up of my hair on Instagram and said I would show you what I use for my hair... so here it is.

Using just regular household goods, so its really inexpensive and good for your hair!  Since I over process my own hair with hair colour and heat appliances I think it's only fair I give a bit of love back, so once a week I do this treatment.

So here is what I use and why:-


Olive oil is really moisturising and full of antioxidants which keeps the skin on the scalp stay healthy, moisturised and conditioned which results in better stronger hair growth.  I also heard that there is a hormone called DTH and this hormone causes the hair follicles to narrow, resulting in hair loss!  Olive oil apparently stops this hormone from narrowing your hair follicles so you can have hair for longer...YAY more olive oil please not to mention it makes your hair shiny too.


The acid in Lemons helps exfoliate the scalp of any dead skin cells AKA dandruff and so in turn makes our scalps clearer and healthier for healthy hair growth.  Thats where the olive oil (above ) comes in handy as it then moisturises the scalp, as the acidy lemon can be drying.
Lemon has been know to strengthen hair roots and give shiny hair.
For you blondes out there if you use lemon on your hair in the sun it can lighten it, but use with caution as it can be drying.


Honey has lots of health benefits and has antibacterial qualities.  It is known as a Humectant which basically means it locks in moisture and again keeping the scalp clean and moisturised leaving the hair shiny and glossy.

So now you know why I use all of those products, mixing them together only seems to make sense as they all compliment each other.
I have noticed a huge difference in my hair, it seems to have gotten longer quicker and looks more healthier.  I've even had people asking me if I use hair extensions!

Ok so this is how to make it.

Step 1
Heat the olive oil in a pan, then wait for it to cool, but not get cold, basically enough to be able to touch it and not burn yourself.  Use as much olive oil as you like depending on your hairs thickness and length.

Step 2
Squeeze lemon into a bowl and pour in some honey, I used a whole lemon and about 4 tablespoons of honey for my hair.  Then pour the warm olive oil into the bowl and mix mix mix...

Step 3
On dry unwashed hair section your hair, I did 4 sections, 2 on top and 2 on the bottom, then I covered my hair in the olive oil, lemon and honey mix, making sure it was all massaged into my scalp and I brushed it through.

Step 4
Tie your hair up in a bun, then using cling film wrap it up and then wrap it again with a scarf or towel to keep it in place.  The natural heat from your head will warm up the cling film and keep the heat trapped in, helping the honey and olive oil absorb more into your hair.

Step 5
Leaving it on as long as you like, I tend to leave mine on overnight.  Wash it off with shampoo and conditioner and you're done!!

If you rinse your hair in cold water it makes it REALLY shiny.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post,  What treatments do you use for your hair?

Soap & Glory Soaper Heroes Kit

Hi Beauties!

I am back!!  I was in Boots the other day, I was aimlessly wondering around the aisles thinking what else can I spend my money on, at this point I didn't actually NEED anything else it was more a case of WANTING.  So I turn down the aisle with the Soap and Glory products!  Bingo, I found exactly what I WANTED!

Soap and Glory Soaper Heroes!  It contains 5 of their best sellers which are Flake Away (Body Scrub), The Righteous Butter (Body Cream), Clean on me (Shower Gel), Girligo (Moisturising Body Mist) and Hand food (Hand Cream).  I am a big fan of Soap and Glory their smells are AMAZING!! It lasts all day and it reminds me of the perfume, Christian Dior Ma Cherie, as they are both very sweet smells.

Flake Away (Body scrub)

Loving this scrub it doesn't feel too harsh on the skin like some scrubs can feel, but yet it does an amazing job at giving you AMAZINGLY smooth skin.  My body felt really soft after I used this in my shower.  This has Shea butter, sweet almond oil, peach seed powder, sea salt and sugar.... no wonder my skin felt smooth.

The Righteous Butter (Body Cream)

Gorgeously thick and beautiful smelling, a little goes a long way I used this after I used the Flake away.  Seriously amazing especially on my elbows and Knees.  This body cream contains softening shea butter and aloe vera.

Clean on me (shower gel)

Really nice shower gel went on like a dream and felt really creamy and thick.  Left my skin feeling moisturised after washing it off.  It contains natural mandarin peel and built in body lotion....ahhh thats why my skin felt really moisturised...

 Hand Food (Hand Cream)

This is with me wherever I go!  My hands are REALLY dry at the moment the weather condition and doing the dishes at home just doesn't help.  Hand Food gave my hands instant relief and felt soothed and soft as soon as I put it on.  This hand cream has shea butter, macadamia oil and marshmallow.... wow good enough to eat!!

Girligo (Moisturising body mist)

I use this everyday I've had people asking what fragrance am I wearing.  It lasts all day and leaves a shiny glittery sheen behind on the skin.   Great if you are showing a bit of flesh off for a party and smells so good its a win win body mist!

Overall glad I repurchased (I use soap and glory loads more in the summer) these mini soap and glory products for me its a quick reminder of how much I do love all of the soap and glory products and for a Soap and glory virgin its a nice set to try out all the products before you commit to a larger sized one.

Personally for me you can't go wrong with this set, they are also travel friendly because of their sizes.  Whats there not to love about these popcorn, marshmallow sweet smelling beauties.

Soap and Glory Soaper Heroes is £13.50 and can be purchased from HERE
