LOTD: Cut Crease Intense Smokey Eyes Featuring The Original Palette by Sleek Makeup

So before I even start talking about this look I know a lot of you all will perhaps not like this look because it looks so dramatic and well is quite in the face... But I was just so bored of doing and looking at those subtle and pretty and blended out looks that I just needed a break and well this look was born :)

When I started out, I didn't have such drama on my mind, I just wanted to do an intense look with a hint of cut-crease but then I guess I got caught in the moment and ended up with this :P

The idea was to use The Original Palette by Sleek Makeup and well the rest is history :)

Break Up of The Look

1. It has a very defined cut-crease and hence is perfect for hooded lids.
2. I have taken advantage of the huge space that I have between my crease and my brows and have taken the black eye-shadow well above my natural crease.
3. The smokey bit is pretty intense because of the use of a pure black eyeshadow instead of something softer.
4. The intensity of the look is further achieved by contrasting black eye shadow with a pearly pale eye shadow on the lid.
5. I have also taken the black eyeshadow on my lower lashline and the whole effect gives me an illusion of bigger eyes.
6. The drama of the eyes has been enhanced by keeping the rest of the look pale and nude.

Let me know if you'd like to see a tutorial for this look :)

Btw have you seen this video of mine yet?

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.
