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?

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: 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…

10 Best Loose Powders Available in India

10 Best Loose Powders Available in IndiaISLM Writer: Sanchita

Summer is going to knock on the door soon and we, who are blessed (or cursed) with oily skin, will crawl back to our powders and/or matte foundations to keep the skin oil-free as far as possible. Being oily skinned, I have always found my way back to loose powders even though their packaging is slightly messy. This is because loose or translucent powders are more finely milled than the compact versions and hence gives you an even look rather than a made-up cakey one. Compact has the tendency to look rough under eyes or around the mouth whereas loose powders work excellently. No wonder, oily skin stays matte for longer duration than it does with the compact ones. Mostly, it gives sheer to buildable coverage and sits on the skin like a natural finish look.
