LOTD: Fresh Glowy Summer Makeup Look

Revisiting the Maybelline Colorsensational Hi Shine Lipgloss in Raspberry Reflections for a Glowy Summer Makeup Look!
Phew! And that is a really long title, isn't it?






Hey Guys! So I have been playing with a lot of textures makeup-wise lately and I ended up with this look that is all about a matte face (perfect for humid summers) and a glossy lip... While I was deciding between using the MaybellineColorsensational Lip Polish and the L'Oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick in Rouge Allegro, my attention veered towards a forgotten gloss... So I gave it a shot hoping I'd remember why I had given it rave reviews a year back...

Oh! And fabulous it was!

The gloss that I am talking about is the Maybelline Colorsensational Hi Shine Lip Gloss in Raspberry Reflections.

So here's the look...





Makeup Breakup
1. I wanted the look to be simple, summery and most importantly girly...
2. I have kept the face matte and evened out with a pop of shine on the lips.
3. Since the gl…

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 :)

Happy Valentines Day my loves... Its 3:16 am and I am still up working on making last touches to this Valentines Day post... I'd like to say that its my dedication to the blog but in all honesty it has more to do with an insomniac streak than sincerity ;)

LOTD: Valentine's Day Date Night Look in Olive Green & Plum
Bored with pinks and reds for Valentine, I wanted to do something different... I mean it is natural to gravitate towards pretty shades of Pink, Purple and Red but with everyone doing the same thing I wanted to do something different. Of course there is quite a huge probability of me going for something PINK on the D-Day ;)

and a promise of a video tutorial...
I created this look accidentally... I mean I was just going through my stash of eye shadows when I dicsocvered many of them that I had not used since a long long time... So I decided to get all of these shadows out of their hiding places and start using them more consciously... And thus this look came to be :)

LOTD: Indian Republic Day Inspired Makeup Look

LOTD: Indian Republic Day Inspired Makeup Look
As the Republic Day dawns today, I can't help but feel a sense of nostalgia for the various 26th Januaries that I had spent in school saluting the National Trocolor and eating boondi ke laddu and samosa after, I cannot help but feel a sense of pride for my two most important and favorite people in uniform - my dad and my baby sister, and I cannot help but feel a sense of patriotism looking at the alleged 'Bromance' between PM Modi and President Obama...

LOTD: Nude/Neutral Makeup Look

LOTD: Nude/Neutral Makeup Look
Anks (of lifestyleproblog.me) rightly put in a comment on an earlier LOTD post of mine, Only a true Makeup Addict will do a 'look' before heading out to buy aata, arhar ki daal, lobiya, tori and kaddu! Even if jest, the statement makes sense and says a lot about what my priorities are :)

There was a time
I used to look into my father's eyes.
In a happy home
I was a king queen, I had a golden throne.
Those days are gone,
Now the memory's on the wall.
I hear the songs
From the places where I was born.
That's what I have been listening to over the past couple of weeks while getting ready for work, singing at the top of my lungs...

LOTD: My Makeup Look for Running Errands
So, its the pati's birthday today and its a no brainer that I have been gorging on the birthday cake since morning... More so because it was baked by Parita (of www.myvanitytreasures.com). Its almost a custom... Every birthday and every anniversary we get Parita to bake and ice a cake for us and its the same cake since past 3 years... She bakes it exactly the same, makes it look exactly the same and it tastes exactly the same... Not a surprise that it is the pati's favorite cake in the world :)

Ok, let me help myself to another slice... *runs to the kitchen to refill her plate*

Winters are here and even though it doesn't really get cold here in Pune, there is a persistent chill in the air and the evenings and nights and get really cold! The late mornings and afternoons on the other hand are beautifully pleasant with the bright sun shining and a chilly breeze blowing...

LOTD: Featuring An Orange Lippy For The First Time on ISLM
If you have been an ISLM reader for a substantial amount of time, then you'd know that I have never ever featured Orange lipstick on ISLM till date... The reason being simply the fact that Orange lipsticks never suited me and hence I have always stayed away from them...

But things change...

While coining the title of this post I almost wrote down 'Pink Blush and *Nude* Lips'... But that wouldn't have been right cause nowadays when we say nude lips we mean lips with a nude shade of lipstick or gloss or something similar...

LOTD: My Diwali Makeup
I have never been a very shimmery, glittery kinda girl... Of course there are times when the occasion or situation dictates so and I relent pretty readily but there are also times when I just want to be myself and just wear and look the way I am most comfortable in... Namely breezy pastels and feminine pinks (Yup! I am a Summer Girl through and through)...

Things can get pretty crazy when you are hungry, thirsty and not allowed to munch on your favorite snack! And when I say crazy, I am referring to temporary memory loss, doing day stuff on auto pilot without feeling a thing and denting your bank balance shopping for stuff that you realise the next day that you will never need!
