5 Makeup Hacks For Rushed Monday Mornings!

5 Makeup Hacks For Rushed Monday Mornings!

ISLM Writer: Ishleen

Hello Darlings!
If I ask you about one thing which you hate, what would it be? If you ask me, I know what to say--I hate mornings! And more than mornings, I hate monday mornings! And why should I not? All those lazy weekend moments have left me craving for that last hit of snooze button! And the hideous monday mornings comes as a prick which bursts my weekend fantasies, and as a result I am in no mood to wake up early or go to college! But priorities, and you need to get them straight in life! So when after the 10th snooze, I finally wake up, I wake up to the shock that I am not left with ample time to get ready! And those are the moments when the below stated 5 makeup hacks are what I swear by! 

1. Partied till late last night? You sure would have puffy eyes in the morning. And they are so not appealing. Most of us tend to apply a concealer on the entire under eye area. But the trick to hide under eye bags is to highlight the under eye crease with a lighter shade of foundation or a non-shimmery highlighter; and apply a darker shade of foundation on the actual puffy area. And by darker shade I definitely do not mean a very dark shade, just a tone darker than your actual skin colour as lighter shades attract attention, and we sure do not want any attention on our puffy bags.

2. We have always heard people on internet swear by using white eyeliner on the water line for a more awake look. But let’s be honest, white eyeliner is good only for the girls with really pale skin. For Indian skin tones, we should use a flesh toned or a pale-pink, matte pencil on our waterline for that bright doe-eye look. It would make your eyes look bigger and you'll definitely look much more awake and fresh than before.

3. Talking of wide looking eyes, lashes are not to be ignored! To achieve a fuller plumage, use two different types of mascaras. Stylists explain that none of the mascara alone can give you all the desired results. So try mixing more than one mascaras, say one for volume, one for lengthening and the other for curling. Wait for a few minutes in between each coat of mascara, so as to let the mascara dry entirely. Before applying the second coat of mascara, use a small brush to dust on some baby powder, or your regular pressed powder on to the lashes. This makes the lashes look plumper and lush.

4. So you know you are running late on a rushed morning, still you crave the perfect flicked eyeliner? No problem, the heart should get what it wants. Draw on that flick girl and after completing your eyeliner routine, just take a dampened Q-tip, dipped in your favorite make-up remover, and clean the rough edges as well as the unevenness of the flick. Crisp af!

5. Go for a bright shade of lipstick instead of a nude or lighter one as it would make the look more pulled together and you, ready to take on the world! Nude lipsticks need a full face of makeup in order to look appealing and sophisticated, whereas on the other hand, a bright and bold lip can uplift the entire look without much effort and even make your skin look brighter. Score!

So which of these hacks do you use on your rushed mornings?

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…

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 of MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation In Shade NC42

There are days when I just cannot help look at myself through any reflective surface that I can. Be it mirrors, glass doors, rear view mirrors, the back of a spoon and even a pond. And then there are days when I wished everyone was blind, every mirror shattered, the serene water turbulent, anything to avoid me seeing my face. One such day when my skin was going through a blearrrgh phase I decided to put my face on the web and show you how I deal with it. My savior is the MAC studio fix fluid foundation which has been my HG foundation for about three months now.
