Celebrity Makeup: Vidya Balan and Red Lips

Vidya Balan is rarely with the wrong makeup. She stays "safe" but never wrong, hence when I saw this picture of hers I found something amiss. No no it isn't a huge blunder and hence many of you may find nothing wrong with the look... But there is this teeny-tiny gripe that I have regarding the lipstick in this look...

The shade of Red in the lippy just feels wrong somehow... I guess rather than going for a "maroon-ish" Red lippy, a brighter and a pinker shade of Red with this particular saree might have done the trick...

Maybe like Colorbar Velvet Matte Hot Hot Hot or MAC Red.

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us.

You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

In or Out: Purple Lipstick

Red Lippies? I love! Pink Lippies? I adore! Nude Lippies? I cannot live without! Purple Lippies? Ewwww... Oh yes! I have somehow always never like Purple Lippies. I always found them to be too crass and well unflattering, but a couple of new pics of some hot bollywood celebs got me rethinking my aversion to these Purple Sticks of Joy (No pun intended there!)... Just take a look at them and be bowled over!!! As you can see, both these gorgeous ladies are sporting two different shades of the color Purple and well neither is Ewww... Rather both these shades look lovely on their respective skintones!  A note of caution! Purple lippies are not for the weak hearted! It is shouts aloud FUN and WILD! So wear it only if you aim at rocking the after party ladies! ;)
