GET RID OF DRY, FRIZZY HAIR + DRY SKIN FOR LESS THAN $6!
Im in New York right now and INYC but it has made my skin have random dry patches (and when i first got here.. i was covered in acne which is why i have two left over dots on my cheeks!!) my hair has been feeling dry too! Unfortunately, I couldnt bring my “DIY potions” cuz the way airport customs is set uppppppp..its hard to explain what my random bottles of liquids are... so I ran to whole foods and grabbed a bottle of AGAVE to rescue me!
ALL YOU NEED:
AGAVE - 1 bottle is $6 and it gives me 3 uses.. so each use is $2!!
Apply this to your hair AFTER shampooing (while its wet) and apply onto clean skin. I do TWO layers on the skin
Wash it off your face and hair with water only!!NO CLEANSERS!! Water temp is whatever u prefer-not ice cold
I have been using agave as a conditioner after shampooing for years (i dont use a regular conditioner..ever) to give my hair moisture and make it soft! I leave a bottle in the shower :)
Youll have the softest most hydrated skin EVER and your hair will be the same!
I let my hair AIR DRY so you can see JUST HOW SHINY, FRIZZ FREE AND HYDRATED it is WITH NO PRODUCT AND NO STYLING!!
WHY THIS WORKS:
Agave is a natural humectant… it gives moisture and shine (glow) to hair and skin! The molecules in agave are hydrophilic and attract water = LOCK IN MOISTURE!!
The “sugars” in agave bond to your hair and make it stronger, more elastic, shiny and KILL frizz!!
anti-aging and is the ultimate healer!
If you have porous textured hair then only do this in low humidity!
Do this as often as u use conditioner!
ps. I always get comments saying “oh if you take care of yourself so much why do u get these problems. The simple and most logical answer: Im a human being :) and im not perfect..nobody is. Change of environment, weather, water, hormones, age, LIFE etc can take a toll on your hair and skin, so its just a matter of adjusting and giving your skin what it needs, WHEN it needs it. I do this to genuinely help - so i hope you find this helpful :)

FAKE BIG LIPS and Layer lippies to make them last all day!!
When im wearing a nude, I like to layer with 3 different colours to make my lips not only look bigger, but to make my lipstick last all day through all the food im gonna eat (ya girl likes to eat) and cuz I hate to reapply
Step 1: EXFOLIATE! Never wear a long wearing lipstick without exfoliating.. get the dead skin off so you can have smoother lipstick application and no crusties. nobody likes crusties. I used @tartecosmetics lip facial #tartecosmetics
Step 2: MOISTURIZE! ALWAYS. Your lips need moisture if youre gonna be wearing a lip colour all day! Use something that absorbs quickly, but keeps your lips hydrated. Im using @farsalicare Rose Gold Elixir, like usual #farsali#farsalicare
Step 3: Line your lips with a liner thats darker than your lip colour! Im using @hudabeauty TRENDSETTER lip contour ^^I line my lips, fill in the outer corners, and the very inside of my lip to make it look pouty #hudabeauty#hudabeautylipcontour
Step 4: Use a slightly lighter liquid lip … my current fav is @doseofcolors TRUFFLE #doseofcolors
Step 5: Use a very light liquid lipstick in the center..Im using #doseofcolors SAND ..I love this shade to highlight my lips but i cant wear it on its own cuz i look like i havent had water in 8 thousand years #THIRSTYAF
Step 6: Eat as much as u want :) #nomnomnom

words cant even describe how proud I am to call this man my husband @lifeofsal. So proud of him for all the hard work and dedication that he put into @farsalicare and so beyond excited that it is NOW AVAILABLE in @SEPHORA *someone pinch me*
I wanted to thank you all for the messages congratulating me, and showing so much love during this incredibly surreal moment! I love reading all your comments, and I just want you to know that I love and appreciate all of you so much! butttt I cant possibly take the credit for Farsali.
A lot of people think I created Farsali - and truth is, Im just a wife who loves her husband and supports him no matter what. I do what I love - which is creating beauty videos/tips and talking to you guys.. and my husband does what he loves - which is business.. something that I'm cluless about!
Long story short... Sal promised me that one day he would create something for me that would always remind me of his love for me - I had no clue what he meant by that... and now I see that it was Farsali (a moniker of both of our names Farah + Sal Ali = Farsali ) So I just wanted to make this post to say thank you to my baeby, and to tell him, and the world, how proud I am to be able to wake up next to this man every. single. day. Proud to support him in everything he does. Proud of all the sleepless nights he put into Farsali, proud that he never gave up, even when things seemed impossible. None of this would be possible if it wasnt for him.
Sephora has always been a dream and its so surreal to me that you can now get @farsalicare at Sephora. This man right here, made me believe that dreams do come true and that dreams work, only if you do. If you have a goal, or a dream, dont ever give up and work until you absolutely cant work anymore, and then work some more, to get exactly what you want out of life! #theworldisyours
I LOVE NUDES! but not all of them go with my skintone perfectly.. so this is what i do to customize them to make sure theyll match my skintone no matter what!
exfoliate/clean your lips with a baby wipe
MOISTURIZE! Im using @farsalicare Rose Gold Elixir like alwayssss
^^^^give it a min to sink in #farsali#farsalicare
Apply your FOUNDATION to the centre of your lip INCLUDING cupids bow - im using ysl foundation #BD55
Apply your liquid lippie to the outside corners to ombre - im using my FAVVVVV @hudabeauty MEDUSA liquid matte #hudabeautyliquidmatte#hudabeauty
blend blend blend - no need for touch ups cuz the liquid matte lasts all day!
Get rid of PUFFY EYES and DARK CIRCLES instantly!
Ive seen these patches all over social media while people are doing their make up, so I thought id DIY them for less than $10 to make and you can use it over 40 times! Each use is like a couple cents!! vs. $20+ to buy one time use!! They stay in place so you can do your eye make up while they decrease puffiness + dark circles and brighten those under eyes up to look fresh and awake! ps. you wont see a drastic before and after ON ME -because a sis is just here tryna help the fam. I dont have super puffy eyes + my dark circles have been pretttttty good lately *knock on wood ..ya girl been sleepin gewwwwwd..* the ingredients are MAJOR for those of you who have puffiness and dark circles - Even if you don't have dark circles or puffy eyes, this is a great preventative/ treatment!
ALL YOU NEED:
WATER (i used 1/2 cup)
BLACK TEA or COFFEE -HIGH caffeine is key
POTATO STARCH (i used 1tbs)
Steep black tea in hot water
once its brewed add potato starch
Let it start to boil - AS SOON AS you see bubbles on the outer part its DONE.
Mix together to create a jelly
DO NOT OVER BOIL. this process takes LESS than 5 mins
Transfer your mixture to a bowl (something with a lid so u can store leftovers for later) let it cool
Apply on undereyes and do your eye make up or whatever you wanna do while it sits there
Peel off and gooooo. no mess.
WHY THIS WORKS:
CAFFIENE is the MAIN ingredient in a lot of under eye creams/patches because it instantly awakens the undereye (its an anti-inflammatory) and reduces puffiness significantly.
it also increases circulation, is an antioxidant and fills in and plumps any lines/wrinkles under the eye, and reduces dark circles
Potato starch nourishes the skin while allowing the undereye to suck in all that goodness from the caffeine. Its also the ingredient that helps this eye patch stay in place

DARK PURPLE LOVE ON THE BRAIN
EXFOLIATOR: @bitebeauty AGAVE Sugar Lip Scrub #bitebeauty
^always exfoliate before you apply any matte lip. Itll make it last longer and it wont look crusty. Your lip colour will also last much longer!
LIP MOISTURIZER: @farsalicare ROSE GOLD Elixir #farsali#farsalicare
^always keep your lips hydrated to ensure no crusties will appear. I apply this all around my mouth to help the loose powder to stick so my chin area doesn't look dry later
LIP COLOUR: @colourpopcosmetics CHAPS ultra matte lip #colourpop
*I use a loose translucent powder to create a cleaner more defined lip shape. I was feeling Rihanna lip shape vibez today so thats why I made my cupids bow more defined. The loose powder helps to prevent the lipstick from bleeding and keeps it nice and clean looking*
1 INGREDIENT TO GET RID OF DULL DRY SKIN + DRY ITCHY SCALP!
My scalp and skin get so dry + itchy cuz that cold winter wind just slaps you! Dont cash me ousside in this weather how bow dah. Here's how to treat the dry itchiness
ALL YOU NEED:
GOAT MILK - if you are vegan, use RICE MILK To make it thicker I use a natural thickening agent (xantham gum) cuz filming this is very messy, you dont NEED it, cuz you should be doing this in the tub or sink.
Apply the milk to your scalp (apply it all over your hair if your just using the milk. I soaked my hair in the milk after i filmed this process.. i couldnt show that on camera cuz i didnt want my floor to be covered in goat milk lol) #diystruggle
Apply the rest to your face as a mask
LEAVE BOTH on for min 10 minutes
Wash it off in shower - use a mild shampoo if youre mixing it with xantham gum. If youre JUST using the milk, then you can skip shampoo. Do what makes you feel comfortable :)
Your skin will feel so soft, the dry patches will be gone and it wont be itchy anymore! Youll also have a glow that will last for days!
Sadly, I cant show itch on the gram, but after I used this there was no scalp itch and it felt nice and clean and my hair felt amazing. My dry patches in my chin were gone too!
WHY THIS WORKS
GOAT MILK is:
-high in fatty acids and has a pH similar to our skin so it penetrates easily
-contains selenium which fights free radicals and KILLS acne, and removes dandruff and boosts hair growth
-rejuvenates scalp to give life and body to the hair
-nourishes dry scalp with the moisture it needs
-gives hair a beautiful shine and penetrates into the shaft for healthy looking hair - helps reduce and soothe acne because its high in vitamin A and B vitamins -softens and instantly moisturizes skin - brightens skin
-high in alpha hydroxy acids that help rejuvenate skin cells = exfoliates the skin to reveal fresh, new skin

The ULTIMATE No Make up Make up with NO Brushes
Skin Prep - @farsalicare UNICORN ESSENCE to give my skin a natural healthy glow. This is an illuminating antioxidant serum (not oil) that juices my skin, while acting as a make up primer too
Undereyes and Lids - @urbandecaycosmetics Anti-Aging primer potion - I like to use this on my undereye and eye lid because it helps to even out the skintone, prevents oil and creasing. If you want a little more coverage, use a powder foundation on top as your “concealer"
Foundation - @yslbeauty Touche Eclat #4.5 to spot cover any dark spots, or pimples. Pat into your skin with your fingers.
a cream highlight is much more natural than a powder, but if you have very oily skin use a powder. I used @kevynaucoin
The Creamy Glow duo #4 Sculpting/Candlelight
Blush - @pixibeauty Multi-balm - Baby Petal
Pat on with two fingers to get a natural flush
Mascara - @maybelline big shot #reallashes#mnyitlook
I did my black pepper lip mask before I filmed this video to make my lips more plump and moisturized (check my previous video) To line and fill them in I am using #milani lipliner in the colour ALL NATURAL. best. lipliner. ever.
Ps. For those saying ew oily .. that's just the studio lights reflecting all the "ew" comments away with positivity beams *pew pew pew* really tho, it's just the lighting.

I noticed a lot of you asking for something for discoloured lips, and for a gentler lip plumper so here is a great recipe that is gentle, but powerful.
All you need:
PLAIN yogurt - if you are vegan, use AGAVE Ground Black Pepper - enough to get a scrub
I use a metal chopstick to poke at my lips gently to get the blood juices flowing. You can use a fork too but dont stab, just gentle pokes.
Apply the mixture all over your lips and exfoliate. Use the scrub OUTSIDE the line of your lips as well. This is going to help pucker them up
Leave on for 1-2 mins - it gets warm, but no burn, or intolerable sting. Its really gentle.
Wipe off and immediately moisturize. Like always, im using my @farsalicare Rose Gold Elixir, but use any moisturizer youre comfortable with. ^^^^^ I lightly pinch and “smack” my lips with my finger to help boost circulation for moisturized, crust free lips.
Apply a lip colour. or dont. I didnt.
Yogurt - helps moisturize and soothe the lips. Also contains lactic acid which exfoliates the top layer or skin to help promote the growth of new cells. Also fills in lines and wrinkles for my fellow wrinkly lip fam out there
Black pepper - Natural antibiotic high in vitamin C for brightening.
Promotes blood circulation and injects nutrients into your skin. Its abrasive so it helps exfoliate to remove dead crusty lip flakes. ♂️no more crusty lips!! Tag a friend in need and don't forget to help a sis out fam! Like this video!! Disclaimer: Test patch First. Always.
Double Disclaimer: All skin tones, lip tones, hair tones, eye tones, teeth and gum tones etc are beautiful. This video by no means is meant to encourage ANYONE to lighten something in order to be “pretty” and be the “standard” of beauty. You are the standard. Discoloured lips can happen from smoking, drinking hot beverages, chemical lip plumpers, cold sores etc. and this is just a natural way to correct uneven pigmentation.
$1 ANTIOXIDANT RUBBER MASK
This cold winter air has me and my skin feeling MEH! If your skin is in need of some major antioxidant juicing and youre looking for soft, healthy, juicy, glowy skin.. then this mask is for YOU! Its FUN, CHEAP and it has INCREDIBLE BENEFITS! Perfect for an at home spa day with your besties! TAG A FRIEND YOU’D DO THIS WITH BELOW!
Just a side note, this isnt one of those quick fix masks that you can visually see, thats why my before and after isnt drastic BUT LEMME EXPLAIN! its one of those masks that INJECTS your skin with powerful antioxidants and you can FEEL the difference. Unfortunately I cant show feels on the gram (im sure mr zuckerberg is working on that ehehehehe)
ALL YOU NEED:
2 cups water - boil
2 tea bags of BUTTERFLY PEA POWDER - such a BEAUTIFUL BLUE colour, if you want to play around with the colour and make it more fun, add a few drops of lemon juice and watch it transform into a MAGENTA! (i added lemon juice tear drops for fun) 2 tbs agar agar -whisk while water is boiling.. once it bubbles like lava its done (you can use leftovers by reheating)
Let cool slightly and apply thick layer to entire face
let it dry completely (takes about 10 minutes)
Peel the mask off from top down or bottom up..i prefer top down but im not tryna tell you how to live your life so do it however you want.. peel it from the side or in pieces. The options are limitless!! ALSO. DONT FEAR! It does not pull on your hair, baby hair, eyebrows, lashes, mustache, etc
MASK COST: $10 for 10 time Use = $1 PER mask!!
WHY YOU NEED TO DO THIS MASK:
AGAR AGAR - this is what makes the mask mold to your face shape and it pretty much locks the ingredients into your skin so it forces the goodies into your skin without letting anything evaporate or escape
BUTTERFLY PEA POWDER - this gorgeous vibrant blue flower is EXTREMELY HIGH in anti-oxidants - protects the skin from free radical damage
-is an anti-inflammatory -prevents pre mature aging - SAY NO TO WRINKLES!

2 INGREDIENTS to SHRINK/TIGHTEN PORES and SKIN!
DIY BUBBLE FOAM MASK!! Servin some Mrs. Doubtfire realness Ive seen this bubble mask that foams after you apply it onto the skin so I thought I would DIY it... the diy version starts as a foam (because its all natural) but you can feel the bubbles working on your skin.. so SHRINK LARGE PORES and GET HYDRATED, SOFT, SUPER TIGHT skin!! (you know that tight feeling facelift you get when you wear a super tight high ponytail.. thats what this feels like. natural botox lol)
DISCLAIMER: try not to eat it! its SO YUMMY!!! I love me some skincare that's good enough to eat! All my bakers out there know whats up! (yes I know this is a merengue. I love food)
ALL YOU NEED:
EGG WHITES (from one egg) **make sure there is NO YOLK otherwise this wont bubble)
SUGAR (1 tbsp)
-you can do this with JUST egg whites too but I like adding sugar cuz of the amazing benefits it has for your skin! more on that later
WHISK your egg whites and sugar in a ceramic/metal bowl. DO NOT use plastic (it wont foam) .. you can use an electric mixer or whisk it by hand Keep whisking until it changes from runny yellowish egg whites to a white thick bubbly foam Apply the foam to your entire face - you can use a brush to apply it or your CLEAN fingers
Youll feel the bubbles tingling your skin! it kinda tickles and feels really cool!
Wash off after 10-15 mins
BOOM. TIGHT SKIN. TIGHT PORES.
Glycolic Bubble Mask to buy: $54
DIY this Glycolic Bubble Mask: Less than $4
WHY THIS WORKS:
SUGAR: natural form of glycolic acid -makes your skin younger looking and fresh because of cell turnover
natural exfoliant (alpha hydroxy acids) -natural humectant = juices your skin up with moisture and traps it in
EGG WHITES: high in protein so they help heal the skin and kill acne
-helps wrinkles and make the skin appear firmer/tighter
-the protein is a natural astringent so it tones your face and soaks up any excess oil and its a “preservative” -contain an enzyme called Lysozyme that helps to tighten and shrink pores -helps with skin elasticity

LIP NEEDLING AT HOME
How I made my lips BIGGER and PINKER without fillers
Those of you who have been following me for a long time have noticed that my lips arent as brown/pigmented as they used to be and theyre MUCH larger -My top lip was much smaller than my bottom. I get asked a lot if I have had fillers..Not gonna lie, Ive thought about getting fillers, but decided to try THIS alternate method instead and I LOVE IT! DERMAROLL YOUR LIPS FAM!!
I started dermarolling my lips 3 years ago and have never thought about filler ever again!
IMPORTANT: MAKE SURE your micro needles are 0.5mm - NO BIGGER (I get my roller from amazon)
STEP 1: ALWAYS CLEAN your needles with alcohol and let it dry FIRST. Never use a roller that hasn't been sanitized first - it can have adverse reactions and cause infection.
STEP 2: Apply a serum or treatment. I use @farsalicare Volcanic Elixir because it has helped lighten my lips significantly but use whatever you feel comfortable with
♀️STEP 3: stretch your lips so it's more comfortable to needle. Then use a light hand and start rolling. I roll horizontally first. Then vertically. Then diagonally and then you're done. *you are needling your lips so of course it hurts (for me it doesn't hurt much cuz I'm used to it, but first time users it might hurt more depending on your pain tolerance)* DO THIS ONCE A MONTH
You will see bigger, plump, and pinker lips over time. Results don't happen over night with this, but you do get a slight plump initially. This is what I have preferred instead of getting fillers cuz I personally love large plump lips, so I thought I would share my routine PS. I'm just sharing what has worked for me. Please keep the name calling and rude comments to yourself. Do your own research on what's best for YOU.
Why this works:
Microneedling makes tiny little pricks into your skin to "injure" it to help boost collagen production and help repair and regenerate itself. For me, doing this in conjunction with something that helps lighten lips over time has made my lips much pinker and fuller. like this video for more and share it with a friend who wants bigger lippies

DIY 24K GOLD MASK for $6 per use
A lot of you ask me to DIY and test expensive skincare and treatments that youve seen on instagram/celebs/tv.. so heres my 1st DIY of 2017!
COST TO GET EVERYTHING FROM AMAZON:
24K GOLD SHEETS: $10.99
ROSEHIP SEED OIL: $7.48 (u can use any oil, this is just my fav)
TOTAL COST TO DIY: $18.47 for 3 TIME USE which = ~$6 per use
COST TO BUY THIS MASK FROM A BRAND: $75 -$300 for 1-2 time use
COST AT A SPA: $380-770 per treatment
I tested this mask TWICE to see if its worth spending $ on, if it REALLY does anything, or if it just looks cool and lets you be cleopatra for a day, and if its easy to apply….
Instagram VS Real Life = big difference
GOLD LEAF + OIL SERUM
Apply oil to face
Apply gold to face with the paper its on. DONT touch it otherwise its a waste/fail
Leave on 30 mins - gently rub in with oil (without using oil it jus balls up and flakes off)
GOLD LEAF ON CLEAN SKIN - NO OIL
-it doesnt stick as well onto a clean face
-it does NOT rub into your skin without the help of an oil or moisturizer. -it looks great as a real 24k gold POPPIN highlight on top of makeup but if youre using it for skincare, you have the RUB TF out of ur face to get it off and that just defeats the purpose, cuz rubbing = sagging/aging skin
RESULTS: the Oil/Serum is what gives you a glow/hydrated skin. The gold looks cool ASF but its VERY hard to work with and you have to have cat like reflexes in order to not ruin the gold leaf and make it go to waste. I literally had to hold my breath at times so the leaf wouldnt fold and fly away.
TBH It looks cool on the gram but cool is as good as it gets cuz the gold leaf is not very effective on its own cuz of how hard it is to apply If you REALLY want to try the gold leaf facial, do yourself a favour and save a TON of money and just buy the gold leaf off amazon. *Make sure its edible gold leaf and its 23k gold or higher*
ps. dont eat it, its edible but it tastes like what it is: METAL.
