Neutral Glamorous Makeup Look

Neutral Glamorous Makeup Look

The new season of The House of Cards is just out and the pati and I decided to skip our regular Sunday Lunch Date tomorrow and watch the whole season back to back in bed... Hmmmm... Sounds like the perfect rainy Sunday afternoon, right? ^_^

Fingers crossed that it goes as planned :)

You know earlier I used to look forward to the weekends because that's when I'd insist that we go out, try out new places to eat, shop and you know the drill... I would spend my Saturdays catching up with friends, shopping, visit the beauty salon and you know being a girl... My Sundays would be spent with the pati trying out new places to lunch and then probably catch a movie and just be a couple...
Lately however, I prefer to stay in, clean my house, spend time with the pati just watching TV, baking new dishes and clicking pictures for my blog...
I wonder what brought about this change... I am probably maturing finally... Its the age ;)

Not surprisingly another thing that's changes recently is the fact that I am getting attracted to neutrals a lot where makeup is concerned and I have been trying things out with neutral shades of eye makeup and lipstick and the like...
Today's makeup is also on the neutral side with just a little hint of "smoke" to elevate the look and make it more fancy and well glamorous...

So here's look and I hope you guys like it :)

Makeup Products Used
1. Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation
2. Maybelline Brow Pencil
3. Lakme Absolute Blusher in Day Sheer
4. Maybelline The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette
5. Kiko Milano Luxurious Lashes Extra Volume Mascara
6. Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Ingenue
7. The Body Shop Gel Pen Eyeliner

I haven't used a face powder to set my foundation because I have noticed that the Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse foundation does not need to be set and additionally I like the dewy finish better :)
Additionally, I haven't used any bright colors in my makeup look here not even a bright blush. Instead I went with a bronze-ey blush and finished my look with a brown, glossy lip...

I hope you guys like my look as much as I did...
Comments are welcome...

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.

Doesn't smudge on my oily lids even after 8 hours of wear. 3. Friendly to the pocket

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
