Halima Aden Shows Us How To Get Glowing Radiant Skin For The Holiday Season

Beauty & Fashion

Aside from being a barrier-breaking hijabi model and activist, Halima Aden also has a BOMB makeup and skincare routine.


For Vogue's latest "Beauty Secrets" video, the young runway star showed us her skincare routine paired with a go-to party look — and honestly, her creativity knows no bounds. Here are a few things we learned from watching this video that we've now got to try ourselves:

Get Creative:

How many of us have used sheet masks? Now, how many of us use the mask to wipe product directly on their face? Exactly! In the video, Halima folds up her brightening sheet mask and glides it onto her skin for added product. If you're on the quest for glowing skin, hydration will be key and utilizing a face mask before going in with products will ensure that your skin is moisturized, despite the frigid weather.

Halima used the Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in a deep wine shade for not just her lips, but also on her eyes and her cheeks. She swept the product on her lids as a primer before going in with the Huda Beauty Rose Gold Remastered Eyeshadow Palette, and also dabbed it on her cheeks to bring a bit of color back to her face after foundation. I have to say, I've never thought about using lipstick for ALL three, but now I'm curious.

Give Your Skin A Great Base:

Before moving into makeup, lock in your pores by splashing cold water on your face like Halima, and then go in with a deep cleanser to really get in there. Add a thicker cream and a nourishing face oil to keep your face super hydrated and to help "make the foundation glide," according to Halima. Next, you must prime! Priming is always a step in makeup that people question whether it's necessary or not, but priming is so important for giving your skin a smooth base before going in with makeup.

Start with a buildable foundation that has a bit of glowiness — the NARS Sheer Glow foundation is perfect for coverage AND for brown girls. To make sure it's super blended, go in with a beauty blender so you can get into every nook and cranny.

Add In Layers:

Throughout the video, Halima goes back and forth between her brows, her cheeks, her contour, and adding lipstick everywhere. When in doubt, add more product to create a pretty, buildable effect. Stick with some colors that are close to your skin tone, but then go in with a blinding highlight and touch the places where the sun hits — brow bone, cupid's bow, top of cheeks, and even the inner corner of your eyes.

And when in doubt, keep your brows done! "You know how they say eyebrows should be like sisters, not twins? Well, mine aren't even talking. It's a family feud," said Halima while filling in her arches with a brow pencil and gel.

Even if you haven't gotten to your threading lady in a while, clean up under the brow with a pencil or shadow that's a few shades lighter than your skin tone. Bam, you're ready for a night out.

11 Types Of Orgasms To Add To Your Must-Hit List

I remember my first orgasm like it was yesterday. Similar to how you never forget your first kiss, you always remember your first orgasm. It is cemented in your memory forever. My first orgasm was the most magical thing I’ve ever experienced. I literally saw the heavens open and heard angels singing from up above. Up until that point orgasms were like seeing a good Madea movie, I heard they existed but I ain’t never seen one. I couldn’t quite put my finger on the issue. I was having plenty of sex but the Big O I kept hearing so much about kept bypassing me.
