LOTD: Daytime Diwali (Festive) Makeup Look





LOTD: Daytime Diwali (Festive) Makeup Look


Diwali at home is always special. Since the time I got married its been a tradition to celebrate Diwali at my in-laws place in Delhi and its one tradition that it holds a really special place in my heart. This year is no different and like always am here sitting in my in-laws' living room, sipping a cup of hot ginger tea courtesy my mum-in-law, nibbling on a slice of banana cake and typing away at my keyboard...

Diwali in Delhi is interesting in the sense that the festivities start almost 10 days prior... This essentially means decking up every morning and go about doing your business in your fineries... This gave me an idea for doing a post on a daytime festive makeup look... It will be both practical and easy to achieve.





Makeup Breakdown
I wanted a soft look that would scream understated glow with the perfect base and smokey yet glittery eyes. This meant using lots of browns, subtle shimmery eye shadows, adequate highlighter and a nude lip.
I used a cream eye shadow because shimmery powders look a little too shimmery. Cream eye shadows on the other hand impart an understated shimmer.
Because I didn't want the eyes to take away from the other parts of the face, I used kohl only on my tightline and skipped using a liner on my upper lash line altogether. However, I did put on some false lashes to complete the eye makeup.
I used an Orangey-Bronze blush on my cheeks and added a touch of highlighter on the bridge of my nose. I went for a nude brown liquid lipstick so as to maintain the color palette.
However, to make the look pop I wore a bright pink bindi.

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.
