Come and watch me wither away. 🦇 – I've been wanting to create this vampire look for awhile now but it kept getting delayed as I was looking for some good red lenses.

Scared. Totally scared. But also inspired.

We reached out to Alisha to obviously ask the secret behind her INSANE skills.

When we asked her how she got started with makeup, Alisha said, “I have always loved makeup since I was a kid, even in school I used to be the girl who had her makeup all done. For sure it wasn’t perfect but hey I never gave up…What inspires me is how comfortable makeup makes one feel in their skin, how we can use a variety of products and techniques not necessarily to make us pretty but to enhance the features we have.”

Unleash the monster inside you this Halloween. 🌚 We don't really celebrate Halloween in Pakistan. However, I legit love the concept of dressing up and being creative with makeup. Please don't bash as to religious perspective because that's ones choice and I don't want to debate on it.

“I love the process of creating creative detailed looks, it gives me a sense of achievement. It depends on what kind of look I’m creating. One look takes 2 hours and another takes 6 hours so it generally depends on the looks and detailing.”

“My personal favourite is the one I created recently, Galaxy Skull.”

There's something that intrigues me about a Black Rose, maybe it's the uniqueness of it. We don't find it everywhere but when I see it, it warms my heart in a strange way. It gives certainty that it's okay to not be the usual. It's okay to give someone a bed of roses while I have nothing in me. It's okay to try till the very end of me. It's okay to think the best of everyone. It's okay to doubt every other person in my life because of that one person. Most of all, it's okay to not believe it all for now and hoping that one day I will. – I'm not one of those who can pour their heart out to everyone easily. This is literally my third attempt writing a caption for this picture. I felt the first two were exposing too much of me. Hang in there, just like always I'll end up giving a bit of me each time. – Share your thoughts with me down below, I love to read all the comments I get. 🖤 – Inspired by @laurakalmakoff – Makeup deets: 🖤FACE @masarratmakeup foundation in "Warm Oak" @l.a.girlpr concealer in "Pure Beige" @airspunofficial translucent powder @elfcosmetics contour kit in "Light/Medium" @nyxcosmetics blush in "Mocha" @thebalmpk "Mary Lou-Manizer" @kryolanofficial Aqua cake liner for the Rose – 🖤EYES @essence make me brow duo eyebrow powder in "02 mix it brunette" @morphebrushesX@jaclynhill Pallette @lorealmakeup Mascara in miss Hippie @zhooshmeup eyelash in "Shady Business" – 🖤LIPS @bourjoisparis Lip pencil in "Funky Brown" @wetnwildbeauty Liquid Lipstick in "Give me Mocha" – #makeupoftheday #pakistanibloggers #karachibloggers #wakeupandmakeup #newblogger #makeupaddict #makeuplife #pakistaniblogger #morphe #elfcosmetics #laprogirlconcealer #masarratmisbah @masarratmakeup #undiscovered_muas #undiscoveredmuas @zhooshmeup #eyeslashes @airspunofficial #zhooshmeup @elfcosmetic @morphebrush #essence @essence_cosmetics #zhooshmeup #airspunpowder #jaclynhill #morphexjaclynhill #maryloumanizer #makeuprevolutionrussia @makeuprevolution @wetnwildbeauty #wetnwildbeauty #givememochawetnwild #givememocha #bourjois #bourjoisparis @bourjoisparis

Bride of Frankenstein ⚰️ Inspired by @creative.cliche Funny Fact: I used red nail polish for blood effect as I didn't have fake blood on hand and didn't really give a thought about how I'll remove it. THEN, I was out of nail polish remover and had to use perfume to remove the nail color. It is safe to say that my skin was red for an hour after I removed all the makeup. 🙈🙈😁😁 Products details: @morphebrushes 39A pallette @kryolanpk Aqua cake liner @essence mascara @essence eyebrow kit @airspunofficial in translucent @elfcosmetics contour kit @inglot_usa blush in shade 70 @anastasiabeverlyhills lip pallette #makeupoftheday #brideoffrankenstein #surgerymakeup #brideoffrankensteinmakeup #stitched #sfxmakeup #horrormakeup #stitches #fakeblood #karachibloggers #wakeupandmakeup #newblogger #makeupideas #krylonmakeup #morphe39a #morphe #anastasiabeverlyhills #anastasiabeverlyhillslippalette #elfcosmetics #essence #inglot #pakistanibloggers #pakistanblogger #undiscovered_muas

Clearly, we’ll be taking some notes from Alisha for this wedding season. Shaadi joras are everything but makeup? Now that is just the cherry on top of getting all dolled up.

What do you think of Alisha’s looks? Let us know in the comments below! Love you.
