LOTD & Tutorial: Pink & Purple Cut Crease Look

Makeup Tutorial for a Cut Crease Look

My daily routine (on weekdays) after I get back from work spells something like this... Get back -> Change -> Hit the Gym -> Cook Dinner -> Do a makeup look/LOTD -> Wait for pati to be back home -> Get his feedback -> Wash face -> Have Dinner -> Blog about the look...
Being married to a guy who loves women in makeup is a perk I get to enjoy and hence in turn being married to a beauty blogger is a perk that the pati gets to enjoy... It's like a win-win situation for both of us...
Hence, I make it a point to be in my makeup (LOTD for the blog) till the pati is back, so as to get his feedback and only then do I wash off my face... It's like a ritual that we follow almost daily and that we secretly enjoy ;)

So last Friday, when the pati came home, I smiled at him waiting for him to "judge" my makeup, he chimed in... Oooohhh Naaaiiicceeee... Aaj to Pink Pink bhi hai! LOL. Yup I had a tinge of pink peeking under my cut-crease and it seemed to have caught his attention :D Guys notice PINK! :D

Anyhoo ladies, with this look I tried something known as the Cut Crease Look where, the shade in the crease is essentially dark and is not blended in with the shade on the lid, giving the whole look a more dramatic angle. The shade on the crease in blended upward with the brow bone highlighter however. I have a little tutorial for it at the end of the post as well :)

So here's the look...


Products Used For The Eyes
1. MAC Shadowy Lady in the crease
2. MAC Retrospeck as highlighter
3. MAC Sushi Flower on the Lid (Outer 2/3)
4. MAC Ricepaper on the Lid (Inner 1/3)
5. Maybelline Gel Liner on the waterline
6. L'Oreal Super Liner in Carbon Black on the upper lashline
7. Ellis Faas Mascara in E401
8. Konad False Eyelashes

Tutorial for the Pink & Purple Cut Crease Look

1. Fill in your brows and prime your lids. I used Konad Eyebrow Pencil in Black and The Body Shop Pencil Concealer.
2. Next, taking an angled brush dip into a dark eyeshadow and apply it along your socket bone. I used MAC Shadowy Lady eyeshadow with The Body Shop Angled Brush.
3. Using a pencil brush or a stiff blending brush, blend out the eyeshadow applied in the crease taking care to only blend it upwards towards the browbone. I haves used MAC 226.
4. Next, apply a highlighter shade in the browbone. I have used MAC Retrospeck eyeshadow.
5. Taking a flat eyeshadow brush apply a lid color. I have used MAC Sushi Flower.
6. Next taking a light matte neutral shade apply in the inner 1/3 of your eye lid. I have used MAC Ricepaper.
7. Line your waterline with your favorite kajal/kohl.
8. Apply a liquid liner on your upper lashline and wing it out.
9. Finish off the look with mascara and some falsies.

Do comment on how you found the look :)

      The lip color is a little cumbersome to explain but lemme try... I first put on Colorbar True Gloss in Radiant Pink, then I kissed into a tissue to remove the OTTness and make it look like a stain. Then I applied Ellis Faas Creamy Lips in L207 :)

  6. Gorgeous, as usual! But my fav look so far is your JLo look - glamorous, hot and sultry! :) Must have had your better-half floored ;D
    Btw, which lippy are you wearing here? Goes so well with the eyes.

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

Good Health: My Slimming Diet and Exercise Regimen

I was planning on starting this post with a quote on health and all that jazz but then I realized you are here reading this post not cause you want to see my writing style but are here cause you actually want to read the contents :) So I will start without much intro but a little disclaimer before that ;) Disclaimer I am not a doctor or a nutritionist or even a dietitian.

Just because you are not taking 3 full meals a day does not mean that you are starving yourself or ar

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!
