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.

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

Changes in my Skincare and Fitness Perspective Post 30

Changes in my Skincare and Fitness Perspective Post 30 #Adulting One early morning while I was sipping an exceptionally strong cup of coffee and introspecting I identified a few lifestyle changes that I had incorporated in the past year or so. On further retrospection I realised that these changes were a part of what I perceived would be good for me in the long run... When did I start thinking about my health in the future? When did I start worrying about how my skin would be 10 years down the line? OMG was I #Adulting? Is this even the correct usage of the latest hashtag?

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!
