3 QUICK TRICKS: Mastering Red Lipsticks!

Women tend to shy away from Red Lipsticks... The reasons are innumerable... Some find Reds too jarring and bright, some think they give out the wrong message while some just simply feel that it will not suit them... The latter reason was why I shied away from Red lipsticks...

With time however, I realized that Red Lipsticks were for everyone, all you needed to do was find the right shade for you. I even wrote an article a couple of years back iterating how Red Lipstcks Are For Everyone. Now after a little more experience with Red Lipsticks I know that its just not only about the shade but also how one makes a Red Lippy work for them... I learnt, experimented and  researched and I came up with 3 tricks that will work for everyone...

And today I am going to be sharing the tricks with you guys :) For my readers who prefer textual content I am listing and explaining all three tricks in detail in the post and for those of you all you all who prefer watching a demonstration, I have a video recorded as well :)

So let's get started!

TRICK #1: Wearing Red Lipsticks Everyday, Even to Work!

* Apply a lip balm at least 15 mins before you apply your lipstick.
* Wipe off the excess greasiness from your lips gently using a tissue
* Take your favoritest Red Lipstick and apply it in a 'dab-dab' motion using your finger. This will ensure a sheer application and not look bold and bright
* (OPTIONAL) If you still think your lips look too bright for work, then lightly kiss into a tissue and you are ready!

TRICK #2: Making Your Red Lipstick Long Wear & Transfer Proof!

* Apply a lip balm at least 15 mins before you apply your lipstick.
* Wipe off the excess greasiness from your lips gently using a tissue
* Apply a layer of your favorite concealer all over your lips. This helps the lipstick something to hold onto. This also helps those who have pigmented lips
* Then taking a lip liner, line your lips and also fill in your lips. if you have a lip pencil that excatly matches your lipstick then use it else use a Nude liner. This will prevent the lipstick from bleeding.
 * Apply a layer of your favorite Red Lipstick either directly from the bullet or using a lip brush.
* Then kiss into a tissue a couple of times to ensure that your lipstick does not transfer any more.
* Dab some loose powder over your lips.
* Apply another layer of lipstick and you may repeat the above steps all over again.

THIS WORKS and helps your lipstick stay put all night :)

TRICK #3: Plump and Plush your Red Pout!

Do this *after* you have applied your lipstick and other steps.
* Taking a concealer on a brush and apply it in your cupid's bow and line outside your lip line.
* Taking a matte brown eyeshadow, dust it lightly under your lower lip in the middle. This will give an illusion of a fuller lower lip and a sexy pout!


So that's it ladies! Do try these tricks out and let me know how they worked for you :)
I'll be back again with another set of 3 Quick Tricks soon... ♥

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…
