LOTD: Simple Neutral Makeup for Work



LOTD: Simple Neutral Makeup for Work

There was a time
I used to look into my father's eyes.
In a happy home
I was a king queen, I had a golden throne.
Those days are gone,
Now the memory's on the wall.
I hear the songs
From the places where I was born.

That's what I have been listening to over the past couple of weeks while getting ready for work, singing at the top of my lungs...

My father said,
"Don't you worry, don't you worry, child.
See heaven's got a plan for you.
Don't you worry, don't you worry now."

So essentially, I what I really do is, put my headphones on, blast this song on my phone and then start putting on my makeup for work, leaving my mind completely blank... This resulted in me doing the exact same makeup everyday, subconsciously... And when I say 'exact same makeup', I mean the exact same makeup, down to the same products and even the same brushes! Talk about the mind and its power to work on autopilot!

Breakup of the Look:
1. In an endeavour to go for a neutral and a toned down look, I have kept the colour palette neutral and have brought in some colour with only a pink blush

2. I have kept the base even with the help of a medium coverage foundation.

3. I haven't overly mattified my face as it ends up looking severe... I have hence kept my look dewy as it looks more natural.

4. Finally I have used a fixing spray to keep my makeup in place all day.

Makeup Products Used:
2. Rimmel London Hide The Blemish Concealer
3. MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation
4. MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
6. Rimmel London Volume Flash Scandal Eyes Mascara
9. Kryolan Fixing Spray

What do you think of the look? Do you think its is too simple? Should I add some more colour?


  1. OMG Suma Sharma, you are really killing it with the Club eye shadow. So waaaaant it NOW !
    A very Happy New Year to you :)

  2. Very, very pretty!

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: 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 & 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.
