LOTD: Everyday Pink Eyeshadow Look

LOTD With MAC Sushi Flower & MAC Trax...
There are days when you wake all happy and hopeful about the day ahead... The morning sun rays filtering through the sheer curtains, the incessant chirping of the birds, everything seems so blissful... On days like these, you feel like doing something special with your look. On days like these I like wearing pink eyeshadows to work :) It is something that I do when I am bubbling with energy and really enthusiastic to get my day started...

A MishMash with Humid, Folie, Antiqued, Club & Ricepaper

I went on a MAC rampage last night... Not doing any creative makeup since the past couple of weeks kinda like gave vent to the goulash that I created last night and I must I quite loved the effect :)


Take a look...

TUTORIAL: Easy Everyday Eye Brightening Makeup

You know the time when you have a major presentation at office first thing in the morning and you need to be look really presentable, alert and well awake at the least... But you and your friends decide on a whim to go party all night and come home all sloshed that forces you to wake all groggy, hungover and well disheveled... Sound familiar? It sure is the story of my life...

But I worry not and I urge you my friends to not fret too cause I have the ultimate trick in my kitty that not only sees you through your presentation but also gets you second glances for how naturally gorgeous and glowy you look ;) Yes of course coffee does the trick to some extent but I what I really am hinting here is more "cosmetic" in nature ;)

Yup! Ladies please welcome the Eye Highlighter :) Now here's a pic with the aforementioned makeup on me that took me like 3 minutes to do... Notice how fresh I look after putting in 10 hours at work, half an hour of gym and an hour of cooking dinner...…

2013 New Year's Eve Look...

I am still not getting the new year vibe as yet... Maybe cause it's really NOT COLD here in Pune... Or maybe because I had 31st Dec as well as 1st Jan working... Or maybe because I still remember Nirbhaya...
Honestly speaking we had nothing planned for the NYE... We just thought we'll have a bunch of friends over, have some drinks at home and then head out for a nice dinner past midnight... But then some of our friends found this fabulous place just close to where we all stay and so we girls all decked up and headed out :)

Since everything was planned so suddenly, I really didn't get to click a lot of pictures and whatever I did click are on my phone and my phone needs an OS upgrade so do bear with me about the lack of pictures here :P

Here are some pictures...

What To Wear: To A Euro2012 Match at a Sports Bar :)

Hello everyone :) You all know that I am not a cricket fan... Rather my love and loyalty lies towards football and with the Euro2012 going on, the pati and I have our lives revolving around football mostly :) And so it was very logical to have our pre-anniversary celebrations at a Sports Bar watching the historical England-France match :) Now the match turned out to be quite a dud with it ending as a draw but it was fun nonetheless especially after a couple of Tequila shots ;) Have I ever told you guys how much I abhor Vodka and worship Tequila? Nope I don't think so :P

So anyways, this is what I wore... I finally got to wear my Mango dress and it seemed quite apt too as I was rooting for France and Blue is France's color :D he he ha ha ;)





Dress: Mango
Peep Toes: Local Shoe Boutique

Make-up wise I did a crease cut look with a hint of blue in the crease and kept my lips nude since a sports bar isn't the place to wear a face of full makeup now is it? ;)

MAC Lipstick in 'Ruby Woo' & An Attempt at The Pin-Up Girl Look

I have been itching to wear my Ruby Woo since the day I got it and well even though I haven't been getting an opportunity to wear anywhere outside, I just keep applying it on me at home... So it was natural that I would want to do a post about it. Now the thing with MAC Ruby Woo is that it is no ordinary Red lipstick. It is a cult Red Lipstick and in order to honor the "Retro Matte" part of it, I had to a special look... and well what better than an all American Pin-Up girl look ;)

Yeah yeah I am no model-shodel but then a girl can dream can't she? Especially in the confines of her own home? ;) Ha ha! So anyways without much ado, ladies and gentlemen I present you THE look :D






For those who keep asking me to post the "other" side of my face ;)

I have Asian eyes with an almost absent crease and hence I have done a "cut-crease" technique here in order give some depth to my eyes and give an illusion of a crease...

Reader Request: Anushka Sharma's MakeUp in the Canon Ad

Basically, importantly, fundamentally many beauty bloggers have already done this tute like Sukanya and Bidisha but Pranali has been asking me to do this since two weeks now and she kinda gave me an ultimatum to do it on Sunday during our blogger's meet and well I had to oblige :)

Sukanya and Bids you did some awesome work on it and I totally "dig" both your tutes... I hope my doing this tute isn't gonna step on any toes :) I will be doing my interpretation of the look :)

Honestly? I have taken the picture quadrant from Sukanya's blog "A Few Unnecessary Stuff" :D

My Interpretation
Anushka's look is actually a very simple, everyday look with well defined eyes and peachy lips. The overall look is crisp and can be worn almost everyday. I am even wearing it to office today :)


1. Let us analyse the eyes first...
The eyes as you can see is well defined with kohl in the waterline and no fuss with any nude or white liner to make the eyes seem bigger and stuf…

What To Wear: To A Sunday Brunch

A Girl Should Be Two Things: Classy & Fabulous                                                                                                                  --- Coco Chanel

And that is exactly what I always try to be whenever I either go shopping for clothes or whenever I have to dress for any occasion...
This Saturday I went out to lunch with one of my besties' "Manu Sharma" to this really classy Italian Restaurant called Little Italy and it did call for some fabulous dressing... 
I paired a champagne colored satin pencil skirt with a black sleeveless top that had rosettes around the neckline :) I wore black suede peep toe slingbacks with the outfit :) With it I took a velvet maroon pouch with another pretty rosette on it :)
My Look...

I tried keeping the makeup simple, nude and subtle and this is what I did... I applied: 1. Maxfactor Second Skin Liquid Foundation in "Golden" 2. MUFE star powder shade 940 wet on my eye lids  3. Blended it with MAC Text…

Weekend HAUL: MAC Cosmetics...

It had been a while I had shopped at MAC (1.25 months to be precise) and well I was waiting for my new salary so that I could just go and raid MAC ;) And well, since I do not like to waste time, I was at MAC on 31st March i.e. yesterday ;) Best part? Apart from the haul of course was that my bestie was with me (I finally bullied her into buying a MAC) and then I met fellow bloggers, Zara and Parul there too :) What a way to start a weekend right? :P

So what did I buy? Well the first thing I wanted was the MAC Lip Erase thingy... But was greatly disappointed :( The MUA applied it on me and then whichever lippy I tried over it would invariably settle into the lines :( She did say that it would need a prior exfoliation of my lips to give best results... But then I wasn't paying a huge amount for something that I wasn't really sure if it would work on me :( So... I did not buy it! :P

Then I moved onto the quest of finding the perfect nude lippy for me :P Yes those who are with me…
