Bollywood Inspired Makeup Series (1950s): L'Or Sunset Cannes 2013 Collection and a Vintage BollyWood Look


 A Makeup Look From Bollywood's 1950's Era


The moment L'Oreal Paris India announced the L'Or Sunset collection for the Cannes Film Festival this year that was honoring 100 years of Indian cinema, I had been itching to get my hands on at least some part of the collection and well what can I say... My wish was granted ^_^

As of now I am in love with the collection... The lippies that I got sent have been a dream to work with and the Eau De Rose eye shadow palette has this gorgeous plummy brown shade of eye shadow that is a constant in my dreams :)


I intend creating a number of Bollywood inspired looks with the stuff I have been sent and this ladies and gentlemen in the first of the lot...

The look that I have created is inspired by Old Bollywood... Think Meena Kumari, Mala Sinha, Waheeda Rehman and all the other classy ladies from Bollywood in the 1950s...

I am doing a series of Bollywood Inspired makeup ere-wise. This was the 1950s... Stay tuned for the 1970s and then the 1990s and finally the 2010s :)

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: 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…

10 Best Loose Powders Available in India

10 Best Loose Powders Available in IndiaISLM Writer: Sanchita

Summer is going to knock on the door soon and we, who are blessed (or cursed) with oily skin, will crawl back to our powders and/or matte foundations to keep the skin oil-free as far as possible. Being oily skinned, I have always found my way back to loose powders even though their packaging is slightly messy. This is because loose or translucent powders are more finely milled than the compact versions and hence gives you an even look rather than a made-up cakey one. Compact has the tendency to look rough under eyes or around the mouth whereas loose powders work excellently. No wonder, oily skin stays matte for longer duration than it does with the compact ones. Mostly, it gives sheer to buildable coverage and sits on the skin like a natural finish look.
