Tutorial: Everyday Glowing Look

Tutorial For An Everyday Glowing Look...

It is not everyday that we go through the whole rigmarole of prepping, priming and applying foundation and doing our eyes and stuff. At least what I do is just slather on some BB cream, apply a nice liner, put on some lippy and I am ready to go. hence it is almost like an occasion when I go all out and do up my face by the book (contradictory to the title of the post)...

This tutorial today is about doing up my face and eyes following all the cardinal rules of makeup :)

Products Used

1. MAC Prep+Prime Face Primer
2. Kryolan Ultra Foundation
3. TBS Pencil Concealer
4. Lakme Perfect Radiance Compressed Powder
6. MAC Patina Eyeshadow
8. Kryolan Black Matte Eyeshadow
10. Ellis Faas Cream Blush S304

1. Moisturise well and apply your favorite primer. I have used MAC Prep+Prime.

2. Apply a foundation of your choice. Do note to use a foundation that gives a dew effect rather than a matte look. We are going for a natural everyday glowing look and hence need to get the dewy effect. I have used Kryolan Ultra foundation.

3. Using a concealer, conceal your darker and redder areas to give an evenness to your skin. I have TBS Pencil Concealer.
Set your concealer with powder. Remember to apply the powder only over the concealer and not on your whole face. The idea is to not mattify the look.

4. Fill in your brows. I do not use a brow powder rather I use a not very intense matte black eye shadow. Here I have used Kryolan's Matte Black eyeshadow.

5. Taking a shimmery highlighter kind of a shade apply it all over your lids with a fluffy blending brush. I have used MAC Retrospeck with Oriflame's blending brush.

6. Then taking a neutral Taupe shade apply it on your upper lashline and crease with a densely packed blending brush. I have used MAC Patina with Faces Blending brush.

7. Then taking a black gel liner, line your waterline.

8. Taking the same gel liner, apply it on the outer half of your upper lashline, winging it out a little bit... I have used Kryolan Gel Liner pencil in Black

9. Taking a a matte black eyehadow with an angled brush smudge out the liner and give it a soft look.

10. Apply mascara, blush and a pink lippy and you are all set to go :)

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…
