READER QUERY: Eye Make-up tricks for eyes with less space between the crease and brow

Heylo people... Am back from my friend's wedding, though am still under a hangover! :P
Here is another query and this time it is from Kaishi's mom... This post is long overdue but I had been so caught up with the wedding stuff that I just couldn't get time to do justice to the query...

How to do makeup for her eyes which has little space between her crease and eyebrow. Her lid is vey wrinkly not because of age but genetic.

A few tips and tricks in order to make up eyes that have little space between the crease and the brow, are wrinkly and might also have dark lids and dark circles are as follows:
1. First off, it's really very important to user an Eye Shadow base as it makes the lid surface even and helps in applying the shadow evenly. It also lightens the lid surface and gives good pigmentation to the shadow. If you do not have an eye shadow base available, you could use a concealer and then set it with loose powder.

2. Second, never use dark shades of shadow beyond the crease. If possible use darker shades only till half the lid and go for lighter shades as you gradually go up the eye... Always remember to have lighter shades of shadows on the crease and also above it.

3. Use really bright shades like Bright Blues, Purples, Fuschia Pinks etc as these will stand out irrespective of dark lids and dark circles. Avoid greens, greys and light pinks. If you want to go for a natural look, you could opt for Bronze.

4. If you have close-set eyes then you could also use a lighter shade of a shadow in the inner corners of the eye.

5. Always use a highlighter shade under your brows i.e. on your brow bone. It reflects light and hence becomes prominent and make the brow bone stand out.

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.
