Makeup Is A Wonderful Thing & LOTD





Makeup Is A Wonderful Thing & LOTD


What I really love about makeup is that there are no rules in it. Living in a society where one is expected to behave in a certain way, live in a certain way, venting out in a creative way with makeup as a medium is truly a welcome change...





It is so easy to lose oneself in the myriad of colors, textures and techniques...
Color combinations like Blue and Brown, Purple and Green are something that would never have even crossed my mind if it wasn't for makeup. It's encouraged me to experiment to my heart's content and try things that I may have never thought of doing before... Its a wonderful thing really...
I know there are times when we get into the nitty-girtties and come across "rules" like don't line your lower lash line heavily if you don't wear a liner on your upper lash line, or the one about how one should never use a black eye brow pencil... You get the drift... But the makeup scene is now evolving and boy are we glad about it...

In my today's makeup look, I haven't really experiment a lot per se but I have strayed from my usual kohl lined eyes and well defined lips. I have instead taken a softer route and gone with innocent, mermaid-ey eyes and "just-bitten" lips that imparts a certain vulnerability to the whole look... I don't know if its wearable in the classic sense but I quite like how it turned out to be...
I hope you guys like the look as much as I do...

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 ski…
