Reader Request: Anushka Sharma's MakeUp in the Canon Ad

Basically, importantly, fundamentally many beauty bloggers have already done this tute like Sukanya and Bidisha but Pranali has been asking me to do this since two weeks now and she kinda gave me an ultimatum to do it on Sunday during our blogger's meet and well I had to oblige :)

Sukanya and Bids you did some awesome work on it and I totally "dig" both your tutes... I hope my doing this tute isn't gonna step on any toes :) I will be doing my interpretation of the look :)

Honestly? I have taken the picture quadrant from Sukanya's blog "A Few Unnecessary Stuff" :D

My Interpretation
Anushka's look is actually a very simple, everyday look with well defined eyes and peachy lips. The overall look is crisp and can be worn almost everyday. I am even wearing it to office today :)

1. Let us analyse the eyes first...
The eyes as you can see is well defined with kohl in the waterline and no fuss with any nude or white liner to make the eyes seem bigger and stuff. If you notice her eyes in the first three quadrants, you'll feel like she has applied a lot of black smudged liner on her upper lids but if you see her profile which is the fourth quadrant you'll notice that her upper lids are actually quite crisp and thinly lined. The kohl on the lower lashline on the other hand has been smudged with a brown eye shadow.
Also her crease has been defined using a nude shade of brown eye shadow.

2. Zero or negligible blush
I have applied quite a bit of blush as I dp not have a long face like Anushka. I have more of a round face and so to make it look longer I had to apply a blush :)

3. Warm Peach lips...
Since I have pigmented lips and a lot of "yellow" undertone,Peach lippies kinda look Pink on me. So I have a darker Orange gloss to create the "warm" effect.

1. Take a nude/neutral brown eye shadow and using a stiff blending brush apply it in the crease area to deepen your crease. I have used MAC Texture eye shadow with MAC 226 brush.

2. Next take a very natural looking highlighter shade and apply it on your browbone area. I have used MAC RicePaper.

3. Then apply kajal on your lower waterline. Re-apply to make it really dark. I have used my Maybelline Gel Liner.

4. Then taking the same neutral brown shadow used in step 1 using a flat smudger brush, smudge the kajal in the waterline with the shadow on the lower lashline. I am using COlorbar's brush number 122.

5. Finally apply a liquid liner (no a pencil liner or gel liner not allowed :P) on the upper lashline very thinly. Finish your look with a mascara :D

6. For the cheeks I have used a bronzer and Colorbar Star Metallics Lip Gloss in Astral for the lips :)

Hope you like the tutorial :)

REVIEW: L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame

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…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.

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…
