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.

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.

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.
