Intricate Looking Quick & Easy Makeup with Duo Chrome Eyeshadows

When I started out with makeup about 6 years ago I was totally obsessed with eyeshadows and everything eye makeup. So much so that if you check out my initial posts on the blog, you'd notice my LOTDs only about bright and beautiful eyeshadow shades. I would not wear foundation, or blush or even lipsticks, it would only feature eyeshadows (brighter the better) and eyeliners...
I would spend hours experimenting with eye makeup looks that could be achieved by using multiple eye shadow shades... It not only made the makeup look complicated, it also added new dimensions to the whole look...

However, as I grew up and my responsibilities increased, my life's priorities changed. Additionally, I started using more types of makeup products and the likes of foundations, blushes and lipsticks joined my stash of eye shadows. So, with time my wearing makeup included more makeup products but the time I could keep aside every morning for makeup while getting ready reduced drastically. This only meant one thing, I had to compromise somewhere and make the process of making up faster...

I tried a lot of permutations. I tried skipping concealer, I tried skipping eye liner, I even tried skipping lipsticks. I finally zeroed on compromising on my eyeshadows. But then I discovered duo-chrome eye shadows! You apply one eye shadow but they give an effect of you having applied multiple shades... How convenient is that? Its not only time saving, it also makes eye makeup simple and easy while making it look super fabulous, super professional and pretty intricate.

In my today's look, I am wearing MAC Club Eyeshadow. It has shades of moss green, pink and a medium brown. So much so that just this one eyeshadow makes it look like I am wearing a brown transition shade in my crease, have pink eyeshadow as my blending shade and a shiny moss green on my lids. Doesn't it?

My favourite technique of wearing a duo-chrome eyeshadow is as follows:
1. Taking a large flat eye shadow brush apply the eye shadow sloppily over your eye lids.
2. Next taking a clean, fluffy blending brush, blend the eye shadow in the crease.
3. Take some eye shadow on the blending brush and again blend in circular motions in the crease area.
4. Finally, taking a smaller flat eye shadow brush, pat on some eye shadow in the centre of your 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

Good Health: My Slimming Diet and Exercise Regimen

Just because you are not taking 3 full meals a day does not mean that you are starving yourself or ar

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!
