LOTD: A Perfect Look For Saturday Night Clubbing

  Featuring: Lakme Absolute Colour Illusion Eyeshadow "Smokey Pearl" I did this look with a blank mind, I had nothing going on and by the time I finished photographing, I was wondering what I should name it... So I did not do a post on it and just randomly posted it on Instagram and hence Facebook and Twitter... You guys loved it (thank you so much :D) and Bidisha labelled the look as Perfect for a Saturday Night Party Look and thus I got my title for the post :) Thanks sweetheart :) ♥

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 ;)

LOTD: A No Fuss New Years Eve Makeup Look

  My New Years Eve Makeup Look So what am I doing this New Year's Eve? Well I dunno really! I mean we did plan to go out and party, and then we planned to get together with friends at a house party and we also gave some thought to spending a quiet and a romantic New Years Eve, just the two of us... But nothing seemed t pan out and well we are as of now right where we started... Nowhere ;)

LOTD, Rants, Smoked & Smudged Liner Look And The Like...

Rants, Makeup Looks and HOI Hola Chicas! (This reminds me I need to sign myself up for a Spanish class)... How is it going ladies... A lot has happened since the last time I sat down to write a post and you guys have been patient and really really supportive... Thank you so much... I am as of now really bogged down with so much happening in my life that I feel I am starting to neglect ISLM :/ But things will change very soon, I promise and I will get back to posting regularly...

LOTD: Defined Eyes... Without Kohl/Kajal

Defined Eyes Without A Kajal Or Kohl It's amazing how things change... Without warning, without any indication, without any rhyme or reason... You believe in something, strongly feel it to be a part of you but one fine morning it eludes you or rather you elude it... Has it happened to you? Have you felt the need to abandon something, some habit, some trait, a personal style or your signature pattern? Well... I never felt the need to and neither did I plan on, but I have, for a while given a rest to something that I always thought defined me...

Clubbing Night LOTD: Shimmery And Smoked Out Eyes... Severe Plum Lips!

   Plum Lips, Matte Face, Shimmery Eyes... Look Of The Day! The past couple of weeks have been really busy for me. I feel like I have only been rushing from event to event, home to office, office to event, event to meet-ups and well meet-ups to other meet-ups. It's a good thing no doubt cause I always prefer being busy rather than having nothing to do, however this time I think I am going to have a burn out like really soon. And so this should call for a vacation. But sadly, thats out of the question too as my coming months are booked to the core and I am not really sure when would I be able to squeeze in a break! Sighhhhh...

LOTD: Featuring Soultree Color Riche Lipstick in Java Brown

  Makeup Featuring Soultree Color Riche Lipstick in Java Brown What does one do when you get sent a lipstick as a PR sample in a shade that you don't really wear? Well I was left at the lurch with a similar situation and I was totally out of ideas about what kind of a look should be done with a brown lippy... If you like the ISLM Facebook page and follow us on Twitter, you'd now realise the motive behind me asking you all to help me with eye shadow ideas that would go with a brown lippy... Aha! So thanks to you all for your ideas and thanks to Soultree for sending me the lippy sample, I am now ready to present to yo guys the look :)

LOTD: Featuring Maybelline Colorsensational Bold Matte Lipstick MAT4

Mini Review & Look Featuring Maybelline Colorsensational Bold Matte MAT4 Lipstick My face has two sides... Of course we all do... But somehow while on one hand, one side of my face is normal, the other on the other hand is "bitchy"... Nah nah am not saying I am bitchy, what I am trying to say here is that the left side of my face looks bitchy! Somehow it does... No logic there... So you guys'll realise that I rarely ever show the other side of my face... But while taking pictures for this post and then editing them, I decided to show you guys my other side and leave it to you all to come to a conclusion about it :P

LOTD: Cut Crease Look Featuring MAC Patina & MAC Antiqued

  Cut Crease Makeup Look With MAC Patina & MAC Antiqued Oh I have so missed doing LOTD posts all this while. No doubt my vacation was simply Earth shattering, however nothing beats the thrill of doing a full face of makeup, clicking pictures and then seeing how they finally turn out to be on a big screen... Ok having mamma ke haathon ka kheer trumps all of that but then you do know what I mean right :)

TUTORIAL: Easy Purple Eye Makeup

Tutorial For A Simple Purple Eye Makeup  I am in this super excited mode right now. I am going on a vacation in two weeks time and might get to meet many of my Kolkata based blog readers and blogger friends. Plus I am going to Bombay tomorrow and will be meeting up with many of the Bombay beauties. And of course it has now stopped raining here in Pune and the sun keeps playing peek-a-boo with the clouds the whole day... This is indeed my favorite kind of weather :) Yet I know the monsoons have actually just begun and so I still carry an umbrella with me (you know just in case) and I still keep all my hair tied up (I just cannot risk a fit of frizzy hair!). Ha!

LOTD: Asian Eyes And Blood Red Lips

  Asian Eyes And Blood Red Lips Courtesy of MAC Eyeshadows and Ellis Faas Milky Lips It is no secret that I am no fan of the monsoons... Ok that's putting it lightly... I extremely abhor the rains and cannot wait for the season to pass over. Imagine, if this is my plight when staying in a city that is to the leeward side of the monsoons, what would I be doing if I was living on the windward side... I even shudder to think of it...

My Anniversary LOTD

LOTD With A Cut Crease Look And Red Lips While our wedding anniversary is something we have been looking forward to for the past two years, it is our relationship's anniversary that is closer to both the pati and my heart. Maybe cause it's a bigger number or maybe cause it's the day that actually marks the beginning of our togetherness. Whatever the reason may be, these two anniversaries in a year is a fun reminder to us that even though it's been 7 years of our togetherness, there still is a long way to go...

LOTD & Tutorial: Pink & Purple Cut Crease Look

Makeup Tutorial for a Cut Crease Look My daily routine (on weekdays) after I get back from work spells something like this... Get back -> Change -> Hit the Gym -> Cook Dinner -> Do a makeup look/LOTD -> Wait for pati to be back home -> Get his feedback -> Wash face -> Have Dinner -> Blog about the look... Being married to a guy who loves women in makeup is a perk I get to enjoy and hence in turn being married to a beauty blogger is a perk that the pati gets to enjoy... It's like a win-win situation for both of us... Hence, I make it a point to be in my makeup (LOTD for the blog) till the pati is back, so as to get his feedback and only then do I wash off my face... It's like a ritual that we follow almost daily and that we secretly enjoy ;)

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?

LOTD: Cult Favorite With A Gradient Purple Eye Makeup

A Bright Look with a Gradient Purple Eye Makeup and a Fuchsia Lipstick Pune today received it's first shower marking the approaching monsoons and even though I am not crazy about the rainy season, I cannot help but feel excited and elated. Why? Cause monsoons in Pune/Mumbai start in June and that marks that the passing by of one half of the year :) Also well cause June is my wedding anniversary month :) Yayee! Last year for our anniversary we had got a fabulous chocolate cake from Parita , who is a fabulous baker... This year though, Pari is in Singapore (boohoo) and we'll have to make do with a common store baked cake :( Even the pati looked crest fallen when I told him that the cake this year will not be baked by Parita... Ha ha ha! Pari, we love your baking babe!

LOTD: Classic, Vintage Glamour

    A Vintage LOTD I have been itching to go retro and do something of a classic, vintage look replete with Berry stained lips, dramatic eye lashes and a classy side chignon... So tonight, after dinner I set about finding the right instruments in my vanity and produced my version of some Old World Charm ...

Snippets From My Last Night's LOTD

  Grey Smokey Eyes & Pink Lips! Last night after a nice, sumptuous dinner, the pati decided to work... On my laptop :/ Now with my laptop engaged, I had nothing to do but to sit at my vanity and experiment with stuff... Not meaning to do anything serious rather having a particular look in mind that I needed to try out before I did a final version of it for the blog, I got down to business...
