LOTD: Soft Daytime Makeup Look


LOTD: Soft Daytime Makeup Look

Saturday is my favorite day of the week... It has the freshness of the start of a weekend and also has the promise of another day after it before the rigmarole of the new week starts... Saturday is when I take a leisurely bath, wear makeup to my heart's content and get ready for a relaxing, aimless day...

So this Saturday I headed out to run some errands and indulge in some much needed FabIndia Shopping... Shopping at FabIndia is therapeutic for me... It relaxes me, leaves me in awe of Indian handicrafts (all over again) and has a calming effect on me... To match the mood I did a soft glowy makeup look that was aimed at making me look youthful and give me an air of effortless flawlessness...

Makeup Breakup for a Soft Daytime Makeup Look:

1. I kept the base very light and only applied L'Oreal Paris Mat Magique Transforming powder to keep myself shine free and to hide blemishes and imperfections
2. I added a little glow to my face by swiping a highlighter on the bridge of my nose and on my cheekbones. The highlighter I used was Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze.
3. I filled in my brows using The Face Shop Design My Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Grey.
4. For my eyes I used MAC Folie eyeshadow to lightly deepen my crease and then applied MAC Rice Paper eyeshadow on my lids as well as on my brow bone.
5. I used Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Push Up Liner in Black to line my eyes and give a slight wing
6. Then I used Rimmel Lodon Scandal Eyes Volume Flash Mascara on my top as well as my bottom lashes.
7. I finished off the look with a nude lip gloss. The one I used is Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Super Natural.

I hope you liked the look :)

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
