I am a woman and I love my makeup... I love the confidence it gives me... I love the way it helps me enhance what I love about me and I love the way it hides what I do not like about me...

  2. Makeup completes me.I love to put it on and feel on Cloud 9, on still making heads turn for me (after 6 yrs of marriage & a kid :P). It gives me a healthy glow on those days where I'm just feeling a bit dull.
    Everyone out there is Beautiful and I believe make-up should be worn to emphasize your favorite features rather than masking them. Wear your best lipstick or your favorite colored liner to add the extra spark on your face n life ;)

  3. I just discovered your blog and have been reading through your posts. I like your writing style :)

    Makeup works as a great pick-me-up. It boosts my confidence and makes me feel put together when I'm stepping out to greet the world. It's a fun way to express myself - whether I'm feeling low key and subtle or outrageous, funky & flirty. I love it when I get compliments about how natural and glowing I look. Little do they know just how big a hand makeup has behind the look.

  5. Lost Eyes now show the depth ,Chapped lips have turned sexy RED
    Frizzy hair now just Flows ,Peachy Cheeks who can hide the glows
    Lost in the crowd was once a face ,Ooohs and Aaahs are common these days
    This is what MAKE UP has done to me , The caged bird is now flying free.

  9. All done except for Instagram as I don't own an Android phone.
    my email id is misskays2011@gmail.com. And my blog is http://www.ishtyleawhile.blogspot.in.

    Here is what makeup means to me

    An array on the palette
    My imagination runs wild
    Hues peek through the smoke
    And my eyes, they speak.
    The blank canvas of the face
    Contoured to highlight the beauty.
    The jet black line on the waterfront
    Tightlines the expression.
    My rosiness is warming
    In summers I glow bronze
    Like a mood changing ring
    My lips go from nude to red.
    From the chic elegant to the vintage look.
    From the hot smoky to the dainty pretty
    Transformation is possible in the blink of an eye.
    What you see is me
    The me I want you to see.

  10. Hello dear :) ANOTHER answer dat i wrote just now for the question u askd..

    "Oh my dear Makeup,U make life beautiful
    U bring colors to my imagination,making beauty more meaningful
    I would take time to express that i Owe a lot to thee
    For the way u make me feel,for the way u transform me
    U are an integral part of a girl's existence
    Bcoz along with beauty,u also impart tons of confidence
    I simply love the way u perform ur duty
    By making every girl realise her true beauty
    My eyes when elegantly defined with kohl
    Becomes expressive and reflect the love in my soul
    I experiment with the eyeshadows of various hues
    To match with the enormous shades of my mood
    The pretty blush on my cheeks give a healthy glow
    When my skin looks good,i am all set to go
    Lip balm makes my lips baby soft and healthy
    To which lipsticks add a glosyy or matte finish
    From the soft nudes to the bold reds
    U give me any shade and i will look my best
    With u dear makeup i share a strong and unique bond
    With you by my side,my looks can never go wrong!!

  11. ugly duckling was in distress...
    why the pretty prince no look at me
    why his guards laugh when i dance in front of
    why his eyes follow the white swan
    even when she pretends he is not there
    will i always be girl with a broken heart
    who is mocked and joked about
    And never once talked.
    I am intelligent, i am funny why are they so dumb that they dont notice it.
    She looked down the water, and wished for something, for love
    She didnt knew an angel mermaid was listening...
    next day when duckling woke up ,
    and there was a gift from mermaid in her closet...
    there was a whole new world of colours in front of her
    She took some pink and touched her cheek... she was blushing
    She took some red, touched her lips...and she was a diva
    she took some grey, touched here eyes and the mirror fell in love with her
    She passed by the prince... who awestruck, took her hand
    And just when he was about to kiss her, she stopped him
    And told him... These colours are not just for you to like me
    They are for everyone who laughed at me when i could not 'make-up'
    When nobody had time or care to appreciate who i am
    Yes i am diva now, everybody will notice me,
    everybody would want to know me
    But but but...i will only kiss the man, Who loves me from inside... with make up and without makeup ~~

  12. A flick of liner to freshen,
    A swipe of lipstick to brighten,
    A touch of colour here, a few brushstrokes there,
    - And voila! The transformation is complete!
    My makeup’s my personal bit of sunshine in the morning,
    It is my pick-me-up when I’m feeling low;
    It is NOT a basis for me to be judged –
    My red lipstick does not make me flighty or shallow,
    My colourful eyes are not to impress people or attract stares;
    Hey, I don’t judge you for leaving your face bare....
    I “make myself up” to make ME happy,
    For the simple reason that that’s how I want it to be!

    I’m a child, and my makeup pencils are my crayons,
    I’m a mad scientist, my dressing table is my lab,
    I’m my own fairy godmother, my makeup brush is my wand,
    I’m an artist, my makeup is my medium;
    I’m just a regular girl, makeup is my passion... :)

  15. Following both ur blogs. Liked both the pages :) I am not on twitter and instagram yet so can't enter na?? But still I'll answer :P I simply love creative contests :D
    Makeup to me is highlighting the good and hiding my flaws,
    Usually just the kajal and lip gloss.
    But then there are days when,
    Mascara, eye shadow, blush follow on.
    Gone are the days when I did not care,
    Love for makeup is what I share.

    "What does makeup means to me?

    Beauty and everything beautiful really fascinates me
    It wont be wrong to say that my vanity completes me
    When i say i love Makeup , Its not that Im obsessed
    I just realise my true beauty and that makes me feel blessed
    When i feel low and my confidence is down
    My makeup is all i need to be perk up again
    When i get up in the morning and see that nasty pimple mark
    Makeup comes as my troubleshooter and my skin feels flawless again..
    Makeup is all it takes to bring out a diva from a plain jane
    Its a magic wand that completes my looks and makes head turns
    Every girl is beautiful in her own ways,we all just need to realise
    Use makeup as as a perfector or enhancer and not as a disguise
    Makeup makes me feel happy it gives me more reasons to smile
    Its magical,its a passion which holds the promise of radiant beauty
    Makeup brings transformation according to the moods and occasions..
    A little creative effort and it gives me that perfect look!
    Dont judge me for my makeup,i wont judge u if u dont makeup!
    Because Makeup is a part of my life,but it doesnt define me
    Beneath that red lipstick are the lips that love to smile
    Inside those smoky eyes..there are big dreams to fulfill
    Look at me with makeup u will find a beautiful girl
    Look beyond that makeup and u will find a pure soul
    Makeup enhances my beauty but i love myself both ways
    With makeup as a diva..or without makeup as a normal girl

  18. My entry in the last hour!

    It started out with a liner black, a long long time back.
    When I was just a teenager, a fledgling but all too eager.
    This bottle is all I need, I said.
    It lines my eyes and even adorns my forehead.

    When I was a twenty something, a working girl with air beneath her wing.
    There was paint on my nail’s tips and a bit of colour on my lips.
    I ventured out into the corporate world,
    My views were ready to be heard.

    Soon I was a blushing bride, my prince standing by my side.
    The vanity was bursting at its seams, with tubes and pots and bottles and creams.
    I played with shadows, bronzers and bases,
    And ended up with some funny faces.

    It was then I realized that, it is a science and also an art.
    The science and art of cosmetics, is actually a bunch of magic tricks.
    I learnt to contour, I learnt to highlight,
    I began to appreciate makeup in all its might.

    I used more colour, made my eyes pop. I knew I made his heart hop.
    Words took on meanings newish, smokey eyes, nude lips and cheeks dewish.
    I looked great I knew,
    There wasn’t a day I felt in the blue.

    And then I turned mother from wife, and upside down went my life.
    My body became something else, I began to lose my sense of self.
    I knew to find the confidence that there ‘aint,
    I needed some serious warpaint.

    When my self pride began to breakup, what came to my rescue was makeup.
    The foundations and concealers did their magic then,
    Those bottles became my best friends.

    To me different things makeup has meant, as my life turned and bent.
    I love how it can enhance a smile, am glad it hides a mark visible from a mile.
    It brings out the artist in me,
    Putting out a better face for the world to see.

    It doesn’t make me what I am not, it helps achieve perfection that is so often sought.
    The dressing table is my favourite place, I love it when I paint my face.
    It is my recreation,
    Every face a new creation.

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: MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In NC42

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.
