What's In My Makeup Bag #1

What's In My Makeup Bag... Episode 1

Every time I meet someone who is well turned out and I can see has taken some effort to look pretty I cannot help but wonder about the products she has used or likes to use... Either it's because I am a beauty blogger and subconsciously keep evaluating different products or maybe because I am woman and I always want to know what another woman uses to prettify herself... Whatever the reason I am always curious and hence thought of doing a "Whats In My Makeup Bag" post myself...

Get Ready With Me Video Using L'Oreal Poptastic Collection

I am in love with this collection. Period. Of course I cannot stop using the L'Oreal Glam Shine Balmy Stain (review HERE) and I am so hooked to the Eyeshadow palette called Luminous Eyes... But what has held me captivated this time is the gorgeous L'Oreal Color Riche Le Nail Art in Pink Paradise...

I relent! There sure seem to be a couple of good things about WInters after all... Of course I am a full blown Summer fan but some things albeit mundane do make you grudgingly agree about Winters being not all that bad... What I am really talking about is how Winters really do make you feel like gulping down Green Tea one cup after the other, how colorful scarves and neck covers become a staple in your wardrobe and how deep berry and plum shade of lipsticks start catching your fancy...

Face Contouring... A Trick To Master!

I am a chubby girl... Anyone who has met me in person will vouch for it... And I hate it! I hate being chubby... I hate to put on weight and I totally hate looking cute... Siiigghhhh... But then we don't always get what we like and we don't really like what we have, right? So one needs to look for alternatives and make things work, isn't it?

Review of L'Oreal Glam Shine Balmy Gloss in Pomegranate Punch

It's 2:45 am right now. I have a bed light on next to me that is radiating that warm, fuzzy yellow light that makes you feel all cozy and snuggly, have a box of Walnut Choco fudge next to me (of the Lonavla fame) and have my ear phones plugged tightly and listening to Avicii belting out their magic (3 cheers for EDM!)... Yup I am an insomniac and I am so not getting sleep right now... So I took upon myself to review this fabulous product that I have been thinking of reviewing since almost a week now...

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!

More often than not Red carpet looks that awe us and leave us spellbound are so difficult to achieve and emulate and require loads of exotic sounding and expensive products. So much so that there was a time when I totally stopped even looking at Red Carpet looks for inspiration... And then I came across this gorgeous makeup on Rihanna that looked so gorgeous and so sexy and seemed so simple and easy to achieve...

Review of Colorbar Take Me As I Am in Mysterious Nude

Search for some things never end... Like for the perfect foundation, the most flattering nude lipstick, the brightest pink nail polish and the spot-on eyebrow pencil... I had always harped on MAC Taupe being my most favorite nude lipstick but then I met Colorbar True Gloss in Natural Tan. It became my most used nude gloss/lippy and now ladies and gentlemen, frivolous that I am with my loyalty, I have now found another gorgeous MLBB lip shade that I keep reaching out to when getting ready for work...

Missing Deadlines, Going Off Schedules, Delhi, In-Laws, Makeup Hauls & Shopping for HOI

Delhi Haul

The past one week has been one crazy vacation with so much packed into an airtight schedule that it felt as if life just passed me in a big, huge blur... Now that I am back home, to my city, to my sunny little apartment, I can now relax, sit on my bedroom's wooden floor with a mug of coffee (I need to switch back to Green Tea ASAP!), gaze at the verdant green hills just a few 100 metres away and savor every moment of my North India trip in retrospect...

REVIEW: Lakme Absolute Cheek Chromatic Baked Blush in Day Sheer

Review of Lakme Absolute's Cheek Chromatic Baked Blush In Day Sheer

I am not a blush person per se. Don't get me wrong, I do use a blush and I totally realize its power in making or breaking a look. However, give me one blush that I can spend my whole life with it and not even feel the need to get myself another one until I actually hit pan with the one that I am using.
Yes! I always finish my blush before I purchase another and I know many of you will just gasp at it with disbelief... So let me just reiterate, I am not really a blush person per se.

Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish in Buried treasure On My Nails!
My annual trip to my in-laws in Delhi is always something of a celebration and I am generally back 5 kgs heavier, with lots of shopping and well with a cold :P This time is no different and even though I haven't gained 5 kgs, I am 2 kilos heavier (I have found a way around my MIL's desi ghee tadkas), I am back to Pune with makeup (thank you Bobbi Brown and Sephora) and loads of stuff for HOI from Patiala and of course the customary flu (I think it's the pollution there hat doesn't agree with me!)...

LOTD: Glamorous Diwali Makeup

Glamorous Makeup Look For Diwali

Yes I am obsessed! Obsessed with Diwali, obsessed with the promise of festivities during this time of the year and obsessed with anything that is even remotely connected to motichoor laddoos. The smell of crackers, the bokeh effects of diwali lights, gorgeously decked up women and dapper men and the soothing chants of the various aartis and poojas, I am looking forward to them all... With so much on my mind, it is but natural that all my makeup attempts would center around this festival of lights and ladies, hence this post of mine is about yet another makeup look you might want to try this Diwali...
