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 :)

  5. Wow love da wonder pati noticed it..;-) btw wat lip color are u wearing..its giving ur lips such a rose petal delicate look ..!

    1. ha ha thanks babes! :D ^_^
      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.

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…
