I suggest the classic dark red or oxblood shade, it does with everything and is very flattering. However, you can also try a bright apple red or a dark blue with a glitter topper would also be fabulous!
For your toes we suggest going for an oxblood or dark red shade, with the gold sandals your toes will pop beautifully. as for your manicure for an evening look we suggest matching your fingernails with your toes, if not go for nude shade that's flattering for your skin color.
That's an awesome question. In Paris during Christmas time, Parisian women stroll the streets in short dresses and skirts with tights/colons underneath. It looks gorgeous with their beautiful coats and boots.
Skirts are considered a huge part of fall and winter fashion especially during holiday season. Some skirts are made of thick materials or wool and for some women the tights underneath is enough to keep them warm, so it depends on their tolerance to the weather. Also in a lot of countries, all indoors areas are heated during the winter so they only get to experience the cold as they move from one place to another.
Your Makeup look here can go in a lot of different directions.
- Classic Look:
You can go for the classic red lip with a black dress look. It's flattering and the red lip will look great in pictures and help illuminate your face against the black dress. Keep the eye makeup simple
You can elevate the sexiness of a black night gown with a sexy smokey eyes. A winged liner looks great with a black dress. Try brown or taupe eyeshadow shades and smoke them out on your top and lower lash line. Keep the lip simple, nude color and gloss!
- Pop of color:
You can go a little wild and try a colored eyeshadow look. Start off slow with a dark royal blue shade, all over the lid and add some sparkle to brighten it up. Lots and lots of mascara and a pinky blush, nude lip.
Hello :) Finding something to wear everyday to Uni can be difficult. You need to find something that is easy to throw on every morning and style easily, those would be the basics. Find a jumper or jacket that make you feel confident and get more from it in different colors so you don't get bored. For your Hijab, we recommend getting neutral veils, with minimal patterns that can easily fit most of your outfits without having to worry if it's going to match or not. If you get bored from the outfits being to basic or repetitive, accessories can be really flattering and can easily change an outfit. A belt, a clunky necklace or even a colorful scarf.
We have an article dedicated to college hijab fashion, you can take some inspiration from it here.
You can also check out Hijab Fashion Section to help you find different way to style your Hijab.
As for Petite wear we recently wrote about stores that carry petite lines, this can help you as well.
Thank you very much for your lovely feedback! If we understand your question properly, then we'd recommend always cleaning your face first with facial cleanser (the ones with milk are good idea), then using a hydrating toner. Using a cleanser would help you remove makeup, dirt and any impurities during your busy day, while using a toner can help you shrink pores, moisturize and refresh your skin.
We're happy you're asking that question, because starting at a young age to take care of your skin is bound to go a long way with having a beautiful one. Drinks lots of water regularly, eat healthy, you can use wipes to clean up your skin, wash it twice daily, use a light moisturizer and use sunscreen.
It all comes down to your skin type and what blends with it best, which is why we always test out foundations because what works perfectly on one of us, doesn't necesserily do the trick for the rest. What we usually do is as follows, if you have an oily or combination skin then powder might be a better solution. If you have dry skin, a foundation would work best.
As a hijabi, you probably spend most of your time wearing a headscarf. But you've got to take a moment to reconsider how you treat your hair when it's under your headscarf. So, if you want to avoid hair loss and hair breakage, here's the right way to tie your hair with hijab.
1. The worst thing you can do to your hair is to wash it, tie it up really tight while it's still wet, and then cover it with a headscarf, and spend many hours in the same form. With time, your hair will fall, and it will become very weak.
2. You need to brush your hair every day, or every other day, according to your hair type. Because twisted hair becomes very dry, so when you'll try to brush it, it will break.
3. Forget about tight hair ties, whether your hair is wet or not. When you tie your hair tight, you twist it and you make it easier to break. So, if you like braids, keep them loose, if you like low buns, also keep them loose.
4. It's best to use hair ties made of fabric, they're so much gentler on your hair.
5. Last but not least, don't wrap your hijab too tight, it also contributes to your hair's health and strength.

Your best bet to get rid of blackheads is to keep your skin clean by washing it twice per day, cleaning your face with a product like Garnier Micellar Water, going for scrubs twice per week, never going to sleep with makeup on, and finally using nose strips for blackheads or doing a mask once per week.
Pimples and acne scars should be treated very carefully, thus, we recommend that you visit a dermatologist so you'd get the right treatment for your case and skin type! But, until then we'll give you some general tips that will help you deal with the problem.
1. Don't cover up acne with makeup:
Most of the makeup tutorials on your Instagram are telling you how to cover up your acne with million layers of makeup. And, while there's a very small chance that makeup will actually cover it up, it will also be causing a lot of harm. It will block your pores, some products can cause you inflammation, and if you don't clean your makeup brushes regularly, you'll get other places on your face infected with acne.
So, use makeup, but with reason, and only if you really need to.
2. Don't over wash your face:
If you strip your face from its oils by using harsh facial washes, it will fight back by producing more. And more oil means that your pores will get blocked and you'll get acne. The best way is to keep your products moderate, and not too harsh.
3. Keep your sheets and pillows clean:
Sleeping on clean sheets and pillows every night will protect your face from catching unwanted dirt. It will also lower the chances of infecting other places that don't have acne.
4. Change your diet:
By following a healthy diet, and visiting a dermatologist regularly, you'll be able to control your acne. So let us introduce you to some of the foods that you need to stop eating now to avoid acne. Click the previous link to know what they are!
5. Drink water as much as you can:
We'll keep saying this, water has the solution to many of our body problems because water flushes toxins out of our bodies. And in order to get a beautiful skin, you need to drink at least 2L. of water a day.
Some of the products that we recommend are:
- Clinique, anti-blemish gel.
- La Roche-Posey acne products.
- The Body shop, Tea Tree products.
We advise you to ask a dermatologist before you use any product so you don't harm your skin!
Thank you for asking this very important question! Many people don't know how to squat properly and end up injuring their knees badly, so yes it is true!
The best way to do a squat is to open your legs a little bit, with your feet forward. And then push your waist and bottom to the back, as if you're going to sit down. While you get down, make sure that your knees don't surpass your feet, and that they're pointed to the outside not to the inside while you squat.
