Purple Smokey eyes Look

Hey people :) I have been totally obsessed with eye make-up off late and all I do is keep experimenting with my eyes... And I am so loving it :D So, today when my boy friend came back from his vacation and we were meeting up for dinner I tried a purple smokey eye look which looks something like this...

The complete Look
He loved it and hence I am sharing it with you guys :)

Eyes Closed

The products that went into are as follows:
  • Oriflame Air Soft Powder
  • maXfactor kajal: Black
  • ELF liquid eye liner
  • ELF brightening eye shadow: Drama
  • Oriflame V* Soul Mates eye shadow: Bonnie and Clyde
  • L'Oreal Color Appeal Trio Pro: Azur Blonde
The steps are something like this...
1. First I prepared my eyes for make-up by dusting some loose powder on my lids. This was to prevent my make-up from creasing.
2. Next, I applied the maXfactor kajal at the outer V of my eye lids.
3. Then using a blending brush I blended out the kajal at the outer edge of my eye and also towards the middle of the eye and also on half my crease.
4. Next taking the darkest shade of shadow int he Oriflame Drama quad I patted it on the smudged kajal.
4. Then I applied the purple shade of shadow from the Bonnie and Clyde duo fromthe inner corner of the to the middle of my eye.
5. I blended the purple and the black shadow together in order to give it a soft look.
6. Then, I took the highlighter shade from the L'Oreal trio and applied it on my brow bone, blending it with the outer edge of my black and purple shadows.
7. Finally, I applied some kajal to my lower waterline and liquid eye liner on my upper lash line.
8. I finished the look with a double coat of mascara on my lashes :)

and VOILA, I was ready with the look :)


  1. loved the purple.... :D
    what do u apply as a base so the shadow dsnt crease?? i have oily lids so i face this a lot :(

  2. wow,this is great. i think u love smokey look like me. a little suggestion, u could hav done this in more detail just as u did at IMBB. and suma, plz plz do a review of ur oriflame soulmate eyeshadows. i wanna buy them bt a review would help me to take the correct decision. i dont wanna waste my money:-(

  3. @EvE-O-LUTION: Hey! Thank you for liking the look :) Even I have extremely Oily lids... so essentially i should be using a Eye shadow primer like UD or something, but they aren't very easily available here, so i use Oriflame's Air Soft Powder.. dust it over my lids and then put eye make-up.. it holds for 4-5 hours :D

  4. @BULBUL: Am glad you liked my smokey-look and yeah sure i'll post pic by pic steps... :) I'll do it in a diff color this time :)

  5. @BULBUL: sorry forgot to answer this... yup i'll surely do a review on Oriflame Visions Eye shadows :) but you can take my word for it.. they are really good :) highly pigmented!

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.
