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

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!

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…

10 Best Loose Powders Available in India

10 Best Loose Powders Available in IndiaISLM Writer: Sanchita

Summer is going to knock on the door soon and we, who are blessed (or cursed) with oily skin, will crawl back to our powders and/or matte foundations to keep the skin oil-free as far as possible. Being oily skinned, I have always found my way back to loose powders even though their packaging is slightly messy. This is because loose or translucent powders are more finely milled than the compact versions and hence gives you an even look rather than a made-up cakey one. Compact has the tendency to look rough under eyes or around the mouth whereas loose powders work excellently. No wonder, oily skin stays matte for longer duration than it does with the compact ones. Mostly, it gives sheer to buildable coverage and sits on the skin like a natural finish look.
