Tutorial: Sexy Summer Glowy Makeup Look

Versatile Neutral Summer Makeup Look (Kala Chashma Inspired)

The whole country has been gripped by the Kala Chashma fever. It's all over the radio, its all over YouTube and it's all over the television. It's really hard to  miss the brand new version of the Kala Chashma song and if you haven't heard it yet then you may not be missing much but you sure will not be able to relate to this particular post of mine :P

Let me start at the beginning. When I first saw the new Katrina Kaif Kala Chashma video, I loved her look... The bright red and golden shades of her outfit were absolutely banging but what really stood out in the entire video was the ingenious Green Bindi... It just stood out and was something that isn't very common to see... No wonder so many of us bloggers and you tubers rushed to do their own versions of the makeup look...

My version of the look however is not based on the green bindi or the green glass bangles or even the sindoor. My version delves into the base makeup and the neutral shades of the eye shadow and the lipstick that's been used on her...
It's simply the most Versatile Summer Makeup Look ever!

How To Get a Summer Glow Base Makeup

1. I have mixed my foundation with a liquid bronzer and applied it all over my face.
2. Then to add a little dimension I have used a concealer in a shade that is a couple of shades lighter than my skin tone on my under eye area and the bridge of my nose.
3. I have then set the areas with the concealer with a transparent loose powder.
4. I have then used a shimmery blush on my cheekbones and extended it towards the temples.
5. Finally, I have used a golden highlighter to highlight the bridge of my nose, the brow bone area and the inner corners of my eyes.

Neutral Eye Makeup

1. I have kept the eyes matte and neutral. I have used a matte brown eye shadow all over the lids and in the crease.
2. To add a little dimension I have used a satin purple eye shadow in the outer corners of my eyes.
3. In order to add continuity, I have lined my lower lash line with a brown eyeliner pencil and then set it with a matte brown eye shadow
4. I put on some false eyelashes and finished the eyes with filling in my brows.

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…
