LOTD: My Current Makeup Routine




LOTD: My Current Makeup Routine


My typical weekday starts with my alarm going off at 6:50 am and me putting it on snooze without fail... I am finally up by 7:15 am and out of the door for my tennis lessons by 7:40 am... It's with clockwork precision that I follow these times... After an hour of tennis I dash off to my workplace where I shower and get ready to face the day!




Since my makeup is generally a hurried 7 minutes affair at the sink in my office's washroom, it needs to be quick, easy and effective. Today I plan to share my current makeup routine that I have been doing over the past month or so...

1. Base Makeup

As much as I like keeping my base makeup to a minimum I have been going the full foundation and concealer routine this past month. This is because I somehow feel that doing makeup on a tanned complexion is a lot of fun and a novel experience and since I have tanned a lot these past months there couldn't have been a better canvas for me than myself!
I try to keep my foundation as sheer as possible and use my fingers to apply and blend it. I use a little concealer on the under area simply to create a little dimension and set it all with a mattifying powder.

2. Eye Makeup

I have always loved playing up the eyes whenever I do my makeup and my current routine is no different. I use a cream eyeshadow as my base and apply a shimmery nude powder eyeshadow on top of it. This combination keeps my eyeshadow from creasing and keeps it on for the whole day. I then heavily line my eyes with black kohl and also smudge a little of it on my eyelids to create a little more drama. I finish off the look with generous coats of mascara.

3. Lipstick

This generally keeps on changing but lately I have been getting drawn to pinks like nobody's business and so I opt for a sheer and a very moisturising lipstick so that my lips don't start feeling dry in the middle of the day.

4. Finishing Touches

Finally, I complete my look with a hint of blush, a touch of highlighter on the bridge of my nose and filling in my brows.

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.
