LOTD & A POTENTIAL VIDEO TUTORIAL: Classic Red Carpet Look

With so many award ceremonies and Red carpet looks I couldn't help but sigh and wish that I could get not to walk the Red carpet but actually do make-up for some those celebs... Not that I am a pro or anything but then a girl can wish now can't she? :) So rather than squashing my dream and dismissing it to some corner of my brain, I decided to do a red carpet makeup for myself. Now see I do not really do outfit posts, ok sometimes but I am not really cut out to choose a classy outfit, style it and then pose in it. I am just happy doing make-up for a make believe outfit :) And so I have just concentrated on the make-up imagining that I am wearing a pale taupe-gold fitted sheath dress, with its pencil skirt going till just below my knee and a really sexy pair of RED loubs! :D How's that for imagination?

So my make-up to match it is a soft Taupe smokey eyes with my "signature" Red lips :)

Here's the look :)





Products Used:
Face
1. The Body Shop Extra Virgin Minerals Cream Compact in Golden Vanilla
2. Lakme Moonlit Highlighter and the Bronzer for highlighting and "low"lighting

Eyes
1. Bharat and Dorris Diamond Eye Shadow No 02 in the crease
2. Bharat and Dorris Water Color Eye Shadow in No 04 on the lid

5. Colorbar Water Proof Liquid Liner
6. Maxfactor False Lash Effect Mascara

Lips

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.
