  1. Love this look. I’m sold on the cocoa mirage palette and thank you for spending so much time answering all the comments. It must take you ages, but it is definitely appreciated. xo

  2. Incredible as always! Love the lip colour on you x
    P.s have you tried the foreo skim device? How do you think it’ll be for acne prone skin? Xx

  3. I have Cocoa Mirage but I also really appreciate you citing dupes/alternatives where applicable. As always, thank you for a well-edited and concise tutorial!

  4. I think I might try this look this weekend! The eyes hold all the attention so it will take away from the stitches post mole removal next to my nose D: curses!

    Would love to see in the future:
    Zoeva tutorial (one brand IF possible)
    Any one brand tutorials! I always find them interesting to see if brand loyalty can be feasible across the products
    If you happen to have the new Loreal rang (La Palette Nude (Beige), Cushion Foundation, Mascara etc) a first impressions would be fab
    Overhyped products: what do you think doesn’t make the cut throughout the blogging/vlogging/online beauty community

    Also looking forward to your facial series that you mentioned in your IG post.

  5. Hey Karima! I’m not sure if you got the TF Cream Shadows as a promotional thing or purchased them, but I’m just letting you know that 8 shades (+ the other Spring? collections) are released in David Jones on March 6th (It’ includes a cooler toned Shade and Light palette by the looks!)

  6. Hi Karima

    I don’t wear false lashes much (never find the time to put them on) so I love it when you tutorials without falsies! Please do more of those:))

  7. Hi Karima,
    Gorgeous look!
    One question – I’ve been using Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer (same shade as you) for the last two weeks or so and love the coverage and consistency. But I feel like after an hour or two the shade is starting to get darker. Do you get this too or maybe it’s just me being paranoid? πŸ™‚

  8. Love this look Karima! I find myself going for a grunge look every time I want to feel put together haha!! Im going to get the Tom Ford quad, Im 100% sold! xo

  9. Love love LOVE!!!! This was really refreshing and something I can probably recreate. Thanks for posting!! I can’t wait to try it out!

  10. Can’t get enough of these soft, grungy looks – your addition of TF Platinum is genius here ???
    I wore your daytime matte glam look last weekend and looooved it. Thank you Karima!

  11. Karima is it weird if I ask how you get your teeth so white? They’re so beautiful and if you use a whitener I want to know which one so I can use it too!!
