Tutorial & LOTD: Easy Festive Makeup Look For Diwali


Tutorial For A Easy Festive Makeup Look For Diwali

And ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the series of carefully planned, spaced and scheduled posts that will greet you for perhaps the whole coming week... Why? Many of you all may know that I am traveling to Delhi this week and will be in the city of the Red Fort! Hola! DILLI! Here I come!

But fret not! I have loads and loads of posts scheduled, ready to come your way and youw ont even know that I am not behind them! I promise :)

And what better way to start the series of scheduled posts than with my next look for Diwali that I feel is younger and more vibrant than the look I did yesterday. And yup its a tutorial!

In this look, I have tried to keep the skin looking flawless and matte. I have played up the eyes with some deep purple shades of eyeshadow and have added a little texture by smudging my kohl. Since the eyes have been made up so as to attract all the focus, I have down played the lips with a plummy brownish shade of lipstick. In order to make the look, look a little effortless (apart from the eyes), I have kept the contouring to a minimum but used a neutral looking blush strategically, so as to not look washed out.

Tutorial For A Festive Makeup Look

1. Prep your eyes, fill in your brows and conceal under eye circles.

2. Apply a highlighter shade on your brow bone area. I have used the silvery shade from Lakme Absolute Eye Chromatic Baked Eyeshadow in Night Shimmer.

3. Next apply a cream eyeshadow in a light shimmery shade all over your eyelids and on the inner corners. I have used MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study.

4. Then taking a dull purplish shade with a contour brush, pack it in, in your crease area. I have used the shade Twilight from the Sleek Bad Girl Palette.

5. Next take a deeper shade of purple and blend it into the crease area. I have used the shade Rebel from the Sleek Bad Girl Palette

6. Blend the eyeshadows well so as to eliminate any harsh edges.

7. Apply kajal on your waterline. I have used Lakme Eyeconic Kajal.

8. Next apply the kajal on your upper and lower lashline and smudge well.

9. Curl your lashes and apply mascara. I have used Ellis Faas Mascara.

10. Wear a complimenting lipstick. I am wearing Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Summer Rain.

11. Finish your look with a swipe of blush.

What I really like about this look is that it is extremely easy to create and yet it looks intricate and complex, as if a lot technique went behind it. Ha! That's the magic of makeup isn't it? ;)

So what do you  think about this look?

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…
