TUTORIAL: Easy Purple Eye Makeup

Tutorial For A Simple Purple Eye Makeup 

I am in this super excited mode right now. I am going on a vacation in two weeks time and might get to meet many of my Kolkata based blog readers and blogger friends. Plus I am going to Bombay tomorrow and will be meeting up with many of the Bombay beauties. And of course it has now stopped raining here in Pune and the sun keeps playing peek-a-boo with the clouds the whole day... This is indeed my favorite kind of weather :) Yet I know the monsoons have actually just begun and so I still carry an umbrella with me (you know just in case) and I still keep all my hair tied up (I just cannot risk a fit of frizzy hair!). Ha!

So anyways... My today's post is actually a simple makeup tutorial especially for those who love Purple eye makeup :) I had a few days earlier done a post on Purple LOTD (link here). This a tutorial for that look with a few modifications though :)

Hope you like it!

Tutorial for Simple Purple Eye Makeup

1. Prime your lids and fill in your brows.
2. Take a natural/taupe eye shadow cream eyeshadow and apply it all over your lids. I have used Maybelline Color Eye Tattoo in Tough As Taupe.
3. Next. taking your favorite highlighter apply it over your brow bone area. I have used MAC Ricepaper.
4. Next taking a pencil brush apply a bright purple eyeshadow in your outer V and the crease. I have used a purple shade from Sleek Bad Girl Palette.
5. Taking a stiff blending brush and some more purple eye shadow pack it in the crease area and blend slightly. I have used MAC 226
6. Next, taking a clean eye shadow blending brush, blend the shadow in the crease and eliminate all harsh edges. I have used Faces 106.
7. Next line your waterline with a gel liner. I have used Maybelline Gel Liner.
8. Then, taking the same purple eye shadow with an angled brush smudge the gel liner on the lower lashline. I have used TBS Angled Brush.
9. Line your upper lashline with a liquid liner and wing it out if you wish. I have used L'Oreal SUper Liner in Carbon Black.
10. Finally wear some false lashes and apply mascara on your lower lashes.
11. Finish your look with highlighting the inner corner/tear duct area and you are ready to go!

Hope you liked the tutorial and find it useful :)

And if you were at all wondering, this is how tied up my hair is during the monsoons :/

Feedback is always welcome!

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…
