TUTORIAL: Simple & Easy Daytime Winter Makeup Look

Winters are here and even though it doesn't really get cold here in Pune, there is a persistent chill in the air and the evenings and nights and get really cold! The late mornings and afternoons on the other hand are beautifully pleasant with the bright sun shining and a chilly breeze blowing...

Its hands-down romance weather and my today's makeup look and tutorial is inspired by this lovely weather!

Breakup of the Look

1. I have kept the base flawless and dewy. I am using a medium coverage foundation (Kryolan Ultra Foundation) and have set it with powder (MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation) only on my forehead, nose and chin. This way the T-Zone is kept non-oily while the rest of the face gets a dewy effect.

2. Next key thing about the look is the blush. The blush I have used in this look is L'Oreal Paris Lucent Magique Blush in Fuchsia Flush. The key is to opt for a blush that is neither matte nor contains chunky glitter. It should impart a sheen or a glow to the face...
I have also applied a bit of the blush on the bridge of my nose for a little dimension.

3. Next we come to the eyes... As is evident, I have darkened my eyebrows and have done a dramatic cut-crease on the eyes (eyeshadows from the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette)... But the main feature of the eye makeup that draws all the attention is the thick winged liner (using MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack)...

4. Finally the lips... Winter makeup generally calls out for matte berries and plums but I wanted the look to look more youthful than mature and hence I opted for a nude gloss (Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Super Natural)... It gives the look a whole new dimension as far as radiance is concerned and still makes it look understated and young...

Let me know if you like the look and if you would want me to do more such posts...
I love to hear from you guys :) ♥

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…
