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.

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…

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

Review of MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In Shade NC42

Guest Post By: Rmyah

There are days when I just cannot help look at myself through any reflective surface that I can. Be it mirrors, glass doors, rear view mirrors, the back of a spoon and even a pond. And then there are days when I wished everyone was blind, every mirror shattered, the serene water turbulent, anything to avoid me seeing my face. One such day when my skin was going through a blearrrgh phase I decided to put my face on the web and show you how I deal with it. My savior is the MAC studio fix fluid foundation which has been my HG foundation for about three months now.
