Valentine's Day Makeup Look - 5 Lip Colors

Valentine's Day Makeup Look - 5 Lip Colors

So this year the pati and I are celebrating a long distance Valentine's Day... If you follow me on Instagram, you'd know that I visited Delhi for a day on Wednesday... The pati however decided to stay on longer and well hence the long distance Valentine's Day this year...

Today when we were talking on the phone, I reminded him that it was the 14th tomorrow and that he shouldn't forget to wish me, he kidded that he could already imagine me in a hot red lipstick... Well I said I'd be wearing pink and well our bantering continued... But it got me thinking... Valentine's Day means different things for different people, so much so that we tend to relate different colors with it too...

For some its Red, for some Pink and well you never know cause for some it could well be nude ;)

So I decided to do a makeup look that would go with almost all shades of lipsticks and hence would be versatile enough to be worn during the day as well as at night...
I hope you guys like the look and it feels really good to be doing a makeup look post after ages...

The Makeup Look Breakdown

1. I went with a mattifying foundation that also gave me about medium coverage and a smooth texture.

2. For the eyes I used a soft cut-crease technique using a matte brown shade in the crease and a glittery peachy shade on my lids. I applied kohl in my waterline and lined my upper lash line thickly with a jet black eye liner.
I forgot to wear mascara :/

3. Where blush is concerned I did not go overboard with it and went with a more natural looking Orange blush. It kinda makes me look a little tanned and imparts an exotic feel to the whole look.

4. And finally I used 5 lip colors to show you guys that this look is extremely versatile and can be paired with any lipstick where color as well as texture is concerned :)

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: L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame

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…

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.
