LOTD: Easy Glossy Glamorous Makeup Look

LOTD: Easy Glossy Glamorous Makeup Look

As we wave the Winter season goodbye, I just wanted to take this opportunity to do a glam and glossy makeup look as an ode to the colder season. Very soon you'd be seeing mattes, pastels and other such summery trends on the blog and this probably is the last fall makeup look that I will be doing this season...

I am personally a huge fan of glossy makeup with a lot of highlighter and non-matte foundations. It could be because I have dry skin or could be because glossy, glory skin is synonymous with youth and supple skin ;)
This look that I have created uses very minimal and easy to get your hands-on products.

The Makeup Look

Makeup Breakdown
1. The first step in achieving a glossy makeup look is to use a non-matte finish foundation. I have used a BB cream that is well suited for dry skin and gives a glory finish.
2. Next I used a highlighter on the bridge of my nose and on my cheekbones.
3. I applied an Orange-Red blush on my cheeks for a flushed look.
4. I applied kajal and liner on my eyes and finished the ye makeup with some mascara.
5. Finally, I used a glossy pink lip color to finish my look.

Makeup Products Used:
1. The Body Shop Vitamin E BB Cream
2. Bobbi Brown Highlighter Brick in Bronze
3. Maybelline Eyebrow Pencil
4. Lakme Eyeconic Kajal in Black
5. Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Push-up Eyeliner
6. Maybelline Colossal Mascara
7. Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Volume Flash Mascara
8. NARS Blush in Exhibit A
9. L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Liquid Lipstick in Rouge Allegro

I hope you guys like my look. Feedback is welcome as usual...

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
