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

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

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 L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...




Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…
