Indian Festive Makeup Look #2 - Versatile, Quick & Easy

As I was sorting through my "Indian Wear" closet, I came across this Maroon Silk Kurta I got myself from "W for Women". It has these bronze accents in the form of embroidery, piping and cloth buttons and even though it may not conform to the norms of being "in", it is gorgeous. It is long, hugs my curves in the most flattering possible way and it is versatile enough to be worn to a myriad of different occasions...

However, since I bought it a couple of years ago, I was a little apprehensive about fitting into it now and so I tried it on and it FIT! Hallelujah!
The moment I put it on I wanted to deck up, try on some jewellery and see what kind of makeup would look with it... One thing led to another and I ended up a doing a full blown makeup look that I decided to share with you as Look #2 from my Indian Festive Makeup Look Book... Click to see my Indian Festive Makeup Look #1.

Makeup Breakup
1. The key to this look is versatility... In the ideal world, one would get ample time to get ready and hop from one function to another resplendent in different outfits and varied makeup looks. However, the reality generally is a little different especially for married women celebrating these festivals in their in-laws' homes... I speak out of experience :)
On Diwali day for example, I have to get ready early in the morning cause we rush to one part of the city to do Laxmi Pujan in my dad-in-law's office then we rush to the other part to do the same puja in my husband and brother-in-law's office, after which we go to the club for a festive lunch. It is only after lunch when we get to get back home and then starts the decorating part of the day. Once that is done, we rush to get ready to the ghar mein Laxmi Puja  and finally head out to celebrate the festival of lights with our friends...
See the pattern? Numerous occasions but not enough time to actually get ready for each of them individually... Thus the need for a versatile and a quick to achieve makeup look :)

2. For this look, I have used used a single shade of eye shadow and a very "common" lip color... But to bring the look up a few notches I have used a bronzer and a highlighter a little too freely :)

Variations of this Makeup Look
Instead of a purple eye shadow and a maroon lip color, you could opt of the following color combinations:

  1. Emerald Green eye shadow and a glossy light pink lip color.
  2. Bronze eye shadow and a glossy Red Lip color
  3. Shimmery Chocolate Brown eye shadow and a Maroon lip color
  4. Golden eye shadow and a matte Red lip color
  5. Royal Blue eye shadow and a glossy nude lip

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018

How I Wear My Denim Jacket To Be In Trend for 2018 Denim is forever. It's versatility makes it a classic and in the form of a jacket it not just looks dapper and en vogue but is also comfortable and convenient... I love denim jackets because they are perfect for Pune's so called Winters and because they are the best accessories for any kind of outfit...

Going through some of the Fall Winter 2017-18 collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney, denim on denim seemed to be the trend in boxy and boyish silhouettes. I am not a very big fan of denim and denim and hence I prefer to pair my boxy denim jacket with a flowy, floral dress that makes the look strike a balance between feminine and androgynous.

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…
