Top 6 Ways to Save Your Makeup During Sweaty Summers
Even if you have started using your primer, waterproof mascara, and even you’re your favorite powder, summers can actually ruin whatever makeup you have applied. It is tough since women have to take a gamble when their skin gets exposed to the summer’s steamy temperatures.

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

VIDEO & LOTD: Wearable Summer Bronze Makeup Look
It is 20 minutes past midnight, I am watching Master Chef Australia while writing this post and I am craving some blueberry cheesecake... Like right now! My cravings during "that time of the month" is so intense that how much ever self restraint I try to practice, I fail at it miserably... I generally eat clean and try to eat healthy but a week before my periods are due I start craving everything unhealthy, mainly sweets and carbs... Sighhhhhh...

Top 10 Makeup Products for Summers

Top 10 Makeup Products for SummersISLM Writer: Sanchita
Hello everyone! It is literally a difficult task to wear makeup during this scorching heat. Nevertheless, we girls never step back. All you need is proper makeup products that won’t melt, clog pores or break you out like hell. Indian summers are awful and unbearable especially when you are stepping out of the comfort of air conditioners. Ever heard the term “Less is more”? Well, that’s what works for summer.

VIDEO TUTORIAL: Spring Summer Makeup Tutorial Ft Coastal Scents 88 Original Palette
Summers are here in full swing and subconsciously my makeup choices keep veering towards mints and pastels and other "cooling" shades. Today I have used the Coastal Scents 88 Original Palette to create this look and I hope you guys like it :)

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…

LOTD: Summer Happy Makeup with a Dash of Plum!

Plum Lips In Summers
We generally associate pastels and powder pinks and fuschias and minty greens and all those flirty and fun nuances of bright colours with Summers. In the same vein, we think of plums and berries and purples and rich browns with the Winter season. We are conditioned to do so... But the other day I felt like going with Plum... Yes! Even in this heat, this unbearably bright sunny afternoon I chose plum and surprisingly enough it came out to be quite cheery and summery! :)

LOTD: Why I Love MAC Patina Eye Shadow and Maybelline Lip Polish

LOTD: Soft Smokey Eyes and Summery Pink Lips
You know Summers are here when you automatically reach out for that powder pink lipstick or that pale nude lip pencil... You know Summers are here when you set out to do a bold smokey eye but end up "softening" it with some neutrals and browns... You know Summers are here when you naturally tend to put your hair up rather than have it down...

LOTD With L'Oreal's Poptastic Collection

I relent! There sure seem to be a couple of good things about WInters after all... Of course I am a full blown Summer fan but some things albeit mundane do make you grudgingly agree about Winters being not all that bad... What I am really talking about is how Winters really do make you feel like gulping down Green Tea one cup after the other, how colorful scarves and neck covers become a staple in your wardrobe and how deep berry and plum shade of lipsticks start catching your fancy...

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 :)

LOTD: Adieu Spring/Summer

Last Looks For Summer & Spring

I love September... Not just because it is my birth month (I know I know you've heard for the 2756432th time) but seriously not just because its my birth month, but because once September starts, the rains stop, the sunshine resumes and the weather just gets more and more awesome! It's sunny with a cool breeze and ladies and gentlemen we welcome Fall/Autumn with open arms :)

The Week That Was (LOTD & Tutorial): I Am So Loving Nudes & Neutrals...

The Week That Was: My Regular Makeup From Last Week...

Ladies... I have had the most fabulous weekend ever all thanks to Lakme for arranging a superb session of makeup masterclass with Natasha Nischol and Sarah-Jane Dias and of course to my amazing and uber-cool fashion blogger friend Abhilasha of LookingGoodFeelingFabwho personally knows Sneha Arora (yup the designer!) and hence got us some front row seats for her show at the Lakme Fashion Week. But more about it later...

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: Mermaid Inspired Makeup

Mermaid Inspired LOTD
A few days back, I had the good fortune to be a part of a very professional photo shoot (details later!). There, the Makeup Artist did this really beautiful, ethereal looking makeup for one of the girls... Apart of the fact that it was so Summery, it made the girl look so beautiful, so innocent and so vulnerable! Just like a mermaid...

Featuring (LOTD): Coastal Scents 88 Original Palette

Green Blue Eye Makeup
I essentially started beauty blogging with a handful of products mostly from Oriflame. You see I was an Oriflame consultant that time. If you go back to my initial LOTD/EOTD posts, you'll observe that all my looks were created using Oriflame palettes that I would keep buying from the catalogues every month and I was blissfully happy :) And then I got myself the Coastal Scents 88 Original Palette and my world changed. I started considering myself to be in the big leagues... But well it was only in my head :P

Featuring (LOTD): MAC Swimming Eyeshadow

Soothing... Cooling... Refreshing...
Temperatures have been soaring like crazy and Pune that rarely sees the harshness of Summers has been cowering in fear of the sweltering sun... Maximum temperatures that are touching 42 degrees don't seem to be backing down and we are all left with improvised ways to battle this heat :( \

My improvisation is of course makeup related :D

Duh!
