A woman who has mastered the art of a fabulous smokey eye has conquered the world... This is something I firmly believe in...

LOTD: Cut Crease Intense Smokey Eyes Featuring Sleek Makeup The Original Palette

LOTD: Cut Crease Intense Smokey Eyes Featuring The Original Palette by Sleek Makeup
So before I even start talking about this look I know a lot of you all will perhaps not like this look because it looks so dramatic and well is quite in the face... But I was just so bored of doing and looking at those subtle and pretty and blended out looks that I just needed a break and well this look was born :)

LOTD: When In Doubt Wear Black... On The Eyes As Well!

LOTD: Simple Black Smokey Eye Look
Everyone has that black dress or top that they reach out to when they can't decide what to wear. I do too... In the same way, I have this basic black smokey eye look that I invariably end up doing when I am not being able to come up with a makeup look... So the other day when I had my creative juices dry up yet again, I decided to do a post about it... After all that is what being a beauty blogger is all about, making the best out of every situation, isn't it ;)

Makeup is a wonderful thing. It helps you weave magic every time you are looking to do something new. It helps you explore your inner creativity, brings out your inner diva and helps you discover your niche... Makeup truly is magical and without it, I know I would be incomplete...

MAC Ruby Woo Makes Everything Right!

MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick Does It Agian!
Ever wanted something so so so badly that even though you knew it was bad for you, your passion for it made it alright? Ever did something really really bad, so bad that it became right? My last night's makeup experiments took me underground where there were temptations everywhere, so much so that after a while everything started feeling right and non-evil :P

Celebrity Makeup: Anushka Sharma

Bindi... Jhumka... Smokey Eyes! All In Favor, Say Aye!

Celebrity Makeup: Kareena Kapoor

Let me first start by saying that I am not much of a Kareena Kapoor fan but the makeup looks that she has been belting out one after the other is sure getting me into a tizzy and I am totally in love with her for this. I was on a makeup hiatus since a while but checking out Kareena Kapoor's looks these past few days and I am all revved up and ready to restart my EOTD posts ;) Parita has already requested for one ;)

But today's post is specially dedicated to this uber cool, ultra chic and super hot smokey eye makeup that she sported with a pristine white dress at a promotional event for her movie "Heroine".


The dress as such am not really a fan of though I don't hate it either... I think its the sleeves that are making me a bit uncomfortable especially with the busy necklace and the heavy eye makeup! If I had to make the outfit a lit less busy, I would make the dress either sleeveless or with fitted 3/4 sleeves... The makeup and the necklace stay! :D



But the post…

Reader Request LOTD: Black Smokey Eyes and Nude Lips

As you all know I am starting to become a Video Tutorial(ist) addict and I am totally loving the way you guys are reacting to this new obsession of mine :) Thank you all for your encouragement, support and the sweet compliments :) Just today I posted a FB status asking everyone if anyone had any particular requests for a video tutorial and you guys gave an overwhelming response :) First to respond was Heer who wanted me to do a Black Smokey and Nude Lips tutorial. You all know how much I love doing smokey eyes and when she asked me for a tute for this classic look, I had to jump in and do it right away :)

FYI the video tute has been recorded but I need some time for editing :) In the mean time I am leaving you with some pics of this look so that you all can tell me if you need anything more out of this look. Heer especially you :)

Hope you all like the look though :)



Video Tute coming up real soon :)
