Is It Christmas Yet?

Makeup Look & LOTD: Is It Christmas Yet?
If you follow me on Instagram, you'd know that I have recently switched jobs and I have been really busy the past week getting the hang of things at my new workplace. A new team, new teammates, new friends and well new work altogether has kept me busy and I have really missed blogging...


With so many award ceremonies and Red carpet looks I couldn't help but sigh and wish that I could get not to walk the Red carpet but actually do make-up for some those celebs... Not that I am a pro or anything but then a girl can wish now can't she? :) So rather than squashing my dream and dismissing it to some corner of my brain, I decided to do a red carpet makeup for myself. Now see I do not really do outfit posts, ok sometimes but I am not really cut out to choose a classy outfit, style it and then pose in it. I am just happy doing make-up for a make believe outfit :) And so I have just concentrated on the make-up imagining that I am wearing a pale taupe-gold fitted sheath dress, with its pencil skirt going till just below my knee and a really sexy pair of RED loubs! :D How's that for imagination?

So my make-up to match it is a soft Taupe smokey eyes with my "signature" Red lips :)

Here's the look :)

Mixing foundations: The way out

There have been times when I go out looking for a foundation that matches my skin tone, only to find that the range I am coveting doesn't really stock on the shade that matches me :( So what does one do during such times? Yes of course, the obvious way out would be to check out another brand or range that stocks your shade... But you see I prefer sticking to the brand or range I want and customize the already available shades to suit my skin tone ;) well yes... all I do is I buy one shade lighter than my skin tone and one shade darker and just mix them in the right proportions and VOILA! I am ready with a shade closest to my skin tone! :D Simple isn't it?

Well I stumbled upon this genius of an idea when I bought myself the Maxfactor second skin foundation in GOLDEN and found it to be a shade lighter for my complexion. So, when I went back to the counter and bought a shade darker i.e. BRONE, I realized that the correct shade for me was lying in the middle of the two shades tha…
