Tutorial: Sexy Summer Glowy Makeup Look

Versatile Neutral Summer Makeup Look (Kala Chashma Inspired)
The whole country has been gripped by the Kala Chashma fever. It's all over the radio, its all over YouTube and it's all over the television. It's really hard to  miss the brand new version of the Kala Chashma song and if you haven't heard it yet then you may not be missing much but you sure will not be able to relate to this particular post of mine :P

The new season of The House of Cards is just out and the pati and I decided to skip our regular Sunday Lunch Date tomorrow and watch the whole season back to back in bed... Hmmmm... Sounds like the perfect rainy Sunday afternoon, right? ^_^

Fingers crossed that it goes as planned :)

LOTD: Quick Glowing Makeup Look for Rushed Monday Mornings

LOTD: Quick Glowing Makeup Look for Rushed Monday Mornings
My relationship with Mondays can best described as complicated. It's complicated without a doubt. I want to hate Mondays because my Instagram and Facebook feeds tell me to, you know the blah blah about Monday Blues and all that jazz but my mind tells another story :) I find Mondays to be full of hope, hope of new things to come, changes, hope of a productive week at work and a hope of getting time to clean my house...

Nonetheless, my Mondays are always rushed!

I invariably sleep late the night before, I snooze my alarm in the morning for more times than is healthy, you get the drift... And hence when I am finally done with my shower and other necessary morning rituals, I get almost no time to do my makeup... So I take shortcuts that I decided to share with you all today and if you have dry skin and oily lids like me, you might even incorporate it in your rushed Monday Morning makeup rituals ;)

Get Ready With Me (GRWM): Neutral & Natural Makeup Look

Get Ready With Me (GRWM): Neutral & Natural Makeup Look
Very often than not I am tempted to wear a  full face of makeup to work. but everytime I do that I feel conscious, I feel a little too made up for work or worse I feel as if everyone's judging me for wearing makeup. I work in IT and well women in IT in India don't really wear much makeup.
I am not saying that I am judged by my colleagues, they probably don't even realise that I am wearing makeup (I work in a team of only guys and well they really don't realise the difference between concealed and non-concelaed under eyes). But I can't help but feel a little conscious.

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 :)

LOTD: Simple Neutral Makeup for Work

LOTD: Simple Neutral Makeup for Work
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: Work, Life and My New Found Love for Brown

LOTD for Work: Brown Smokey Eyes
Things change as you grow through the years... Your emotions change, your interests change and your outlook towards life change... Priorities sort themselves out and certain relationships  start taking precedence over others... But what really stands out is the things that remain constant even after all these changes and ladies the things that change through all these years is something that you've truly loved... Seems like a "obvious" sort of a statement but with my life going through some major changes, I realize the significance behind it all...

LOTD: Neutral Makeup For A Lunch/Brunch Date

My Makeup Look For A Lunch Date

Hasn't this year been flying past at breakneck speed? Doesn't Holi feel like just yesterday? I am amazed that it is almost mid-October now and Diwali is just around the corner! Phew! Talk about time not waiting for anyone ;) So just as I was browsing through my almost untouched trousseau (It's one of my favorite timepass), I realised I was way behind schedule to get suits stitched for Diwali... Sighhhhh... So this Sunday saw me doing trips to the tailor not once but numerous times as I would invariably forget something or the other... Then after my innumerable rendezvous with the tailor, the pati and I decided to go out for lunch and I decided to go for a desi look for our date :)

Experiments: Another Go At Neutral Makeup & My Struggles With My Canon Ixus...

My Experiments With My Canon Ixus 255 HS And Neutral Makeup

You know what is the most frustrating thing that can happen to a beauty blogger? At least to me? Take all the time in the world to choose an outfit, accessories, do your makeup that actually turns out beautiful and then your camera fails you! Yes it simply fails you... The worst part? It even tricks you!

Experiments: My No Kajal No Eyeliner Look!

Eye Makeup With No Kajal & No Eyeliner

A few days ago, leafing through glossy pages of a fashion magazine, I came across this look there the model had a no-makeup look on... I mean it was apparent that she was wearing makeup but the obvious tell tale signs of kajal, eyeliner, bronzer, lipstick was missing... Instead her eyes were defines using nude shades of eyeshadows, her cheeks had a natural rosy flush and her lips were made to look gorgeous all thanks to nude lip liners and transparent glosses...

LOTD & Tips: Jennifer Lopez Inspired Brown Smokey Eye Makeup

Jennifer Lopez Inspired Makeup
Jennifer Lopez has been my favorite since the day I heard and saw the video for the song If You Had My Love. I started out being hooked to her exotic features, sensuality, her sexy yet managing to be innocent sort of an attitude and well her songs... Later I was smitten by her makeup. Why haven't I ever done any post inspired by her makeup earlier is something that is a mystery to me as well... But then they do say Better Late Than Never isn't it?
