GUEST POST: Valentine's Day Look and Tutorial

Guest Post by Bidisha

You all know that I have a giveaway underway on ISimplyLoveMakeUp where I will have two winners. One winner wins a GlossyBox and another winner will win three of my favorite lipsticks :) If you haven't entered it yet then worry not beauties you can still enter it here. As a part of one of the rules, Bidisha from has very sweetly done a guest post about a Valentine's Day look and a tutorial :) I wont introduce her to you all just yet, for that you'll have to be a little more patient and wait for a couple of more days ;) So over to her for now...
Hello everyone...
This is Bidisha here
I am so excited today to write a post for my adorable friend suma <3
So today i thought of doing an easy eyemakeup tutorial for you all
This particular eyemakeup can be done during day and is also suitable for evening !
In this tutorial I used sponge applicator instead of brushes.
So lets get started with the tutorial
Here is the step by step pictoral demonstration >>>>>>>

1.First apply concealer around your eyes to hide the darkness (if any)
2.Then apply a mauvish silver frost eyeshadow all over the eyelids (I used Deborah Milano Ombretto mono hi-tech eyeshadow)
3.Then apply a taupy/bronzy brown eyeshadow on the outer corner of your eyes (I used the brownish shade from Lakme botanica eyeshadow quartet)
4.In order to give a twist to your eyemakeup, apply a burgundy/cranberry colour eyeshadow on the transition area where the mauve and brown meets; don't forget to blend the colors well. (I used the cranberry shade from the Botanica quad again)
5.Then apply your favourite black kohl liner on the waterline.
6.To intensify the eye makeup, line your upper lashline with that black kohl liner instead of liquid liner.
7.Finally finish off the makeup using a good black mascara on the lashes ! (I used Maybelline colossal volume mascara)

And here's the final look >

I hope you all liked this eye makeup tutorial
On my face i just applied Lakme rose powder and on my lips i used my favourite Avon lip balm in cherry
Since this is an eye makeup tutorial i didn't focus much on blush and lipstick !
I hope you all enjoyed this quick tutorial...

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 & 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.

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…
