Smoky not Smudgy

Firstly, apologies for the lack of regular posting these past few days; I've been a lot busier than usual and getting ready for something exciting!

On Sunday 25th October, Imperial College London will be hosting a Charity Week event called Smoky Not Smudgy. This is a ladies' only pampering and beauty event in aid of Islamic Relief, and in it's second year running promises to be a fantastic day inshallah. And what's more I'll be giving a hijab styling workshop on the day! It's my first time doing something like this, so any feedback about what things you'd like to see would be much appreciated. I look forward to seeing lots of you there! Please join the SNS Facebook group for more information.

hey i was wondering if buying expensive clothes is haram? After you pay your zakat and you are not in debt is it haram to buy expensive clothes
thank you.

The timing is so horrible. I wish I could come. I'll try my best. (yey I get to see you).

I have a question, I am not a fan of wearing make up on a daily basis but, my cheeks go red and it looks like I have blusher on, I was wondering is there anything that I can wear to deal with that? What do you recommend?

Assalamu Alaikum Jana

Alhamdulillah that a gr8 event to be at.
Have lets of fun there. Darling if we could get to see a video of your workshop that would be awesome.Cant waint to watch it!!

Sister Ruwayda i have the same problem my face is always pink and my cheeks red lol. Non muslims often ask me if im on a wine diet or something LOL
Actually a doc told me is Rosacea,a skin condition.
Because my skin is oily and shines i usually blot my face with some compact powder , it absorbs the oil and conceal the redness too. It works for me !

Take Care girls

Mine is not a skin condition because it only goes red when it's cold...

You've really scared me now lol. I highly doubt that just because my cheeks go red it's a skin condition. I just don't like red cheeks, pink is fine but not red.

I went yesterday with my sister and had a really good time! We ended up staying for a few hours.

We got some make-up tips from one of the make-up artists and had lovely henna designs put on our hands.

I hope a lot of money was raised for charity!

Alhamdulilah we raised over £2100 on the day! Glad you enjoyed it :)
