The Week That Was (LOTD & Tutorial): I Am So Loving Nudes & Neutrals...

The Week That Was: My Regular Makeup From Last Week...

Ladies... I have had the most fabulous weekend ever all thanks to Lakme for arranging a superb session of makeup masterclass with Natasha Nischol and Sarah-Jane Dias and of course to my amazing and uber-cool fashion blogger friend Abhilasha of LookingGoodFeelingFab who personally knows Sneha Arora (yup the designer!) and hence got us some front row seats for her show at the Lakme Fashion Week. But more about it later...

This past couple of weeks I have been drawn to nude and neutral makeup and my previous LOTD posts are proof of that. If you have missed them then you can check them out HERE, HERE and HERE... So it isn't really a surprise that the whole of my previous week I have again sported the neutral look...

Here's a glimpse of it...

Tutorial For Creating a Neutral/Nude Makeup

1. Apply a light weight, sheer coverage foundation, a BB cream or a CC cream to even out your skintone. I have used MAC Face & Body foundation (review HERE).

2. Next, fill in your brows and give it some definition. While doing a nude or a neutral makeup, defining your eyebrows is a must in order to prevent looking washed out. I have used Konad Eyebrow Pencil.

3. Next, you may want to highlight your browbone area with a pale, iridescent eyeshadow. Please note that this is an optional step. This step merely highlights your eyebrow further and gives an arch to your brows. I have used MAC Ricepaper Eyeshadow (review HERE).

4. Then taking a cream eyeshadow in a pale shimmery hue, apply it all over your eyelids. I have used MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study.

5. Next apply your favorite kajal on your waterline, liquid liner on your upper lashline and mascara on your lashes. I have used Mabelline Colossal Kajal, Maybelline Hyperglossy Liquid Liner (review HERE) and MAC Zoom Fast Black Lash Mascara (review HERE).

6. Apply a neutral blush for a natural looking flush. This is an important step as this is the only form of colour we will be giving to the whole look. Hence, it is safe to say that this is another step that prevents you from looking washed out and sick. I have used Colorbar Powder Blush in Plum Brown (review HERE).

7. Finally, finish your look with a nude lip gloss. I am wearing Colorbar True Gloss in Natural Tan (review HERE).

Hope you liked the look. Feedback as always is welcome...

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…

REVIEW: L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.
