Hence I have created this makeup look that is versatile enough to be worn for any festive occasion and has been done using only Drugstore products.

Video Tutorial: Rihanna Inspired Red Lips And Winged Eye Liner Look
More often than not Red carpet looks that awe us and leave us spellbound are so difficult to achieve and emulate and require loads of exotic sounding and expensive products. So much so that there was a time when I totally stopped even looking at Red Carpet looks for inspiration... And then I came across this gorgeous makeup on Rihanna that looked so gorgeous and so sexy and seemed so simple and easy to achieve...

Basics of Eye Makeup: Must Have Eye Makeup Brushes

Must Have Eye Makeup Brushes

The other day while shopping for groceries and other household essentials, I popped a bottle of baby shampoo into the grocery cart... The pati looked at me incredulously and winked... Ummm... No I wasn't giving him hints I assured him and told him that the baby shampoo was for me... He looked doubly stunned and asked me as to what made me deviate from my trusted banana shake shampoo (He meant the Body Shop Banana Shampoo, ahem!)... I had to clarify that the baby shampoo wasn't for me per say but for my makeup brushes... He just looked on at me, then shook his head, muttered under his breath "What's next? Toothpaste for your lipsticks?" and then walked towards the adjoining aisle...

Ha ha ha... I would have felt pity for me if I hadn't gotten this uncontrollable urge to laugh at his lost and almost defeated expression :P

Tutorial For A Smudged Liner Smoked Out Look

I have these phases where I tend to stick to a particular technique of makeup for a really long time... My current phase includes doing up my eyes using the smudged liner technique to give myself a smoked out look...

Bridal Beauty: Tutorial For A Bridal Eye Makeup That Goes With Everything

LOTD & Tutorial: Indian Bridal Eye Makeup
Marriages they say are made in heaven. Weddings on the other hand are a result of conspiratorial planning, procrastination, deep analysis and a balancing act of keeping all parties concerned placated. Trust me when I say that I speak out of experience! My wedding had three communities involved and myriads of people directly or indirectly being affected. As a result for me my wedding was somewhat like an Annual Day function in school wherein I was rushing off to my dressing room every hour to change. I changed 3 outfits during my wedding ceremony in 4 hours flat!

Colours Of India: Bengal Inspired Makeup Look & Tutorial

LOTD: Bengali Makeup
Ohe Shundoro Mori Mori Tomaye Ki Diye Borno Kori?
If you ask me what I love about India, I will always say "It's cultural diversity"... I am in awe of the fact that so many different cultures co-exist in harmony (almost always) and when it comes to representing our country, we shed our cultural differences and walk forward as one. We have the power to be ONE and yet have the ability to spice things up with our different cultural backgrounds...

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!

The Basics of Eye Makeup - Techniques to Master

Basics of Eye Makeup - Part 1
Makeup is fun. If you find it daunting, then you are not looking at it correctly. Maybe if you tilt your head by say 27 degrees and then look at makeup, you'll see how much fun the whole process is :) Makeup is fun because it weaves magic... Because it can turn you from a white swan to a black one in a jiffy! I personally prefer the black version and hence the analogy btw. It is fun because it makes me feel like I hold the key to a lot of crucial things in life including showing the face I want the world to see one day and then an altogether a different on another day. It gives me that power.
And like they say, with great power comes great responsibility. But with makeup there is no responsibility and this is what makes makeup the most fun power to have :)
