Ramadan & Makeup

 Ramadan is alsmot over , its like 26th Fast , Eid preparation is on the peak , maybe not like past years due to unfortunatue incident of worst Flood in Pakistan;s History. I was browsing , and came up with this wonderful article here , so i wanted to share it with you girls

Ramadan is the month of countless blessings, joy and to rejuvenate your inner beauty. Ramadan is not just a month of spirituality and holiness, but also a month of extra work especially for women. With constant juggling between the household chores, preparing feasts and doing religious rituals, a woman neglected her own self especially from her health and makeover side.
Makeup and make over are purely the women business. Every woman has an inner desire to look good, beautiful, different and young ever. For this, the women do every possible thing from skin care to makeup techniques. Gone were the days when women only used to wear/apply a fairness cream, a kohl and a herb to clean , color and shine their teethes. Now are the days when women try to do all that things which make them more beautiful, charming, smart, stylish and gorgeous.
They spend a huge budget on makeup accessories and also go off and on to the beauty salons to enhance their beauty. As the Holy month of Ramadan has started the duties & responsibilities of every woman become doubled. They not only have to take care of their home, spouse and children, but also need extra care for themselves as well. Almost every woman during Ramadan gives extra attention & time to their kitchen activities & thus neglects their own health & over all make over.
Being a centre and focal point of your home you need t put an extra effort on yourself too because your health counts a lot. If you are healthy and fit your home automatically will become healthy happy and fit.
This Ramadan special article, we put special focus on some easy growing and modish makeup tips for you women. By using them you can enhance your beauty & over all looks.
Basic tips during Ramadan:
  • Keep your skin clean and healthy: the first step before applying any makeup is clean and healthy skin. The better your skin’s texture and color, the less makeup you will need. Skin that is clear, healthy and even in tone allows you to wear less makeup because you don’t need it! Cleanse tone, moisturize, and apply eye cream.
  • Keep all makeup matte and muted: This means no shimmers, sparkles, or false lashes.
  • Apply light things: Apply a light coverage -concealer, foundation and powder.
  • Use matte blush on: Apply a blush that makes you look youthful and healthy. A matte peach, pink, or skin-color blush is great.
  • Apply nude lip colors: Apply a creamy nude color of lipstick in this Ramadan and get a new look. Blushing Nude is actually a very light, nude lip color, but on paper it looks super dark.
  • Use matte eye shadow: Use a matte beige eye shadow all over the eyelid, then apply a medium-toned matte eye shadow color on the crease, like brown, taupe, or navy blue. (This is optional. If you feel you don’t need it, you can go with eyeliner only.)
  • Wear dark eye liner: Line your eyes in dark burgundy, dark brown, black or navy blue eyeliner to enhance your eyes.
  • Try mascara colors other than black: Curl your lashes and apply a coat of black mascara. This is a fun time to experiment with colors that are less dramatic than black, however. So try to use mascara colors like burgundy, navy blue, or brown and see how subtle changes can affect your overall appearance.
And remember, your inner beauty is more important and promising than your outer beauty. So be generous, speak well, do well, and be well.

  1. What a lovely post :)

    I can totally bookmark it for festivals like Pongal or Karti that south indians celebrate since over-the-top make up is a big no on such days!

    Ramadan mubarak :-*

  2. Mashallah!! the post is great...but i have been brought up by the thought not to use anything other than kajal during ramadan..not even perfume...especially lipstick or balm as it will go into your mouth and break your fast.....I was taught to take bath 2 or 3 times during ramdan and not wear any makeup other than kajal/suruma.....that is the belief i still follow....

  3. Nice tips,Sarah!:) I still do my make up routine when I go out,minus eyeshadow one since I don't wear eyeshadow daily.I respect to other belief,as what I do belief and taught is just not to drink/eat during fasting,so make up is still fine for me...

    Can't hardly wait for your Eid review :)..

  4. i never heard of any restriction about applying makeup in ramadan. i usualy do my usual, body spray, sunscreen, face powder, little bit of eye stuff, etc. i try not to put flavored lip stuff on though cuz it does get in to my mouth and i feel guilty that it might ruin my fast.

  5. I guess its all about your own priorities or choice, i dont prefer wearing makeup when i am fasting , how ever i do apply kajal . bute when i do wear while fasting , i make sure makeup products are halal , they dont contain alcohol factor mostly in perfumes, deo sprays .
    Yes you can wear make-up during Ramadhan. However, I would suggest that it should look natural as much as possible and make sure you wipe it off before performing wudu’, as water may not cleanse the skin in a proper manner. As long as your intention for wearing make-up is pure and you apply it at appropriate times, there’s nothing wrong with wearing it during Ramadhan.

  6. Great tips girl. Hope ur having a whale of a time.
