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... ♥

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…

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!

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…
