Soft Brown Monochrome Makeup

monochrome makeup

Monochrome makeups are really exciting and I realized this when I did one! Last few days were all about fun with family and friends and I did get a chance to play with some new makeup looks. I tried on this Soft Brown Monochrome Makeup and really loved the overall look. It’s best for a day outing. If you are wanting to wear it during the night, you can add a pair of falsies are maybe deepen up the eyeliner.

This look was really simple to create and didn’t really require a lot of products.

Brown Smokey Eye Makeup for the day

Brown Smokey Eye

Hello Everyone!

Hope you had a great festive week and I am sure the Diwali excitement must have taken over already… I have been experimenting with a variety of looks these days… Thanks to the festive month! I decided to try on a medium brown smokey eye makeup with a nude glossy lip color. Since I had worn this look for a day outing, I decided to keep it demure yet substantial, so I skipped using a pair of false lashes. Had it been for a night party, I would have surely added a pair of false lashes.

Tips For Wearing Brown Smokey Eye Makeup during the day

  1. DO define your brows. DON’T go too dark.
  2. DO conceal your under eye area if you have dark circles else the brown smokey eye makeup will make you look like Manjulika 😛 
  3. Skip dramatic false lashes, if at all required, you can use the individual lashes or a good mascara can do the needful.
  4. DO NOT make the inner corner of the lower lash line too smoked out. (not suitable for a day wear smokey look)
  5. Opt for a medium brown over a dark brown look.
  6. Keep the blush very subtle. DONOT use a bright pink one at all!

Deep Kohled Eye Makeup | L’Oreal 16HR Infallible Never Fail Eyeliner

kohl

I have been quite enthusiastic to apply lots of kohl these days. Though a deep kohled eye makeup isn’t my favorite, but it often reminds me of my college days…. I used to wear a lot of this look!! Well, that time I had no idea I’d be a beauty blogger one day and would be embarrassed of my choice of makeup! (no offence to kohl lovers)

So coming back to where I started, lots of kohl!! I got my hands on this eye pencil from L’Oreal, which is the 16HR Infallible Never Fail Eyeliner (Black) and have been quite excited to try it out in various ways and created this look lately.

kohl

The super black, highly pigmented kohl comes with a built-in smudger and sharpener which helps create a sharp or smoked out line quickly and easily. You can buy it online HERE.

Now since I have my make-up basics sorted and in place (unlike college days), I paired kohl lined eye makeup with a neutral pinkish-beige lip color to mellow down the impactful kohl effect!

The Blushed Nudes In Action

Blushed Nudes

I have used the Maybelline Blushed Nudes a dozen times now and have loved each and every look! It creates the perfect subtle look exactly the way I like. While reviewing the palette I did mention that the eye shadows aren’t pigmented enough, and the shades aren’t much distinguishable; I guess that’s the whole idea behind the ‘Nudes Palette’ anyway I have been loving it a lot and reach out for it on every occasion! Here is one of the look I wore this weekend using the blushed nudes palette.

You can buy the palette form NYKAA 

Blushed Nudes



Shade A – Used to highlight the brow bone and in the inner corner of the eye

Shade B – Used on the upper crease and to line the lower lid

Shade C – Used on the upper lid

Shade D – Used to add depth in the outer corner of the eye

Maybelline Fit Me Compact (Reviewed here)

Maybelline Falsies Mascara

Maybelline Rebel Boutique REB-07 Lipstick (Reviewed here)

Step – 1:

I use Maybelline Fit Me Compact as a base, It comes with an applicator, you wouldn’t really have to reach out for a powder brush.

Also use it over the eyelids to avoid oily lids during the day.

Now take very little amount of REB-07 Lipstick and dab it on to your cheeks. This acts as a cream blush.

Time taken – 00:01:00

Step – 2:

Grab on the Maybelline Falsies Mascara and apply 2 coats on the upper and lower lashes. I absolutely love this mascara. It instantly adds length and volume. You will have to be careful here to avoid any sort of injury to the eye in the moving car.

Time taken – 00:01:30

Step – 3:

Now comes the final and the last step! Take out your weapon and wear it on! The lipstick I mean 😛

I use REB-07 quite often, It’s a beautiful bright pink shade and lasts all day without touch-ups 🙂 It’s a year old now and is still my favorite.

Time taken – 00:00:30

So that completes the look! You now have rest of the time to be merrily spent sight seeing and chatting 🙂

Soft Bronze Smoky Eyes

Soft Bronze Smoky Eyes

Bronze can be a very interesting option when choosing a smoky eye effect. It gives the required drama without being exaggerated. Also one thing to be kept in mind is, a smoky eye is paired best with a soft pastel lip shade, can be glossy, matte or creamy. In this look, I have paired soft bronze smoky eyes with a creamy nude brown lip shade.

Soft Bronze Smoky Eyes

For the eyes I have used the quad from ‘The Nudes Palette’ from Maybelline, reviewed here.

For the face, As usual uses a sheer coverage for a more natural look. I absolutely detest a veneer of foundation or compact, the reason for which I use it is to give a finish and control oil or shine on my face, absolutely NOT to redefine my complexion.

For the lips I used a shade created and invented my ME 😀 (I mixed all the leftovers and got this beautiful shade), but I can help you find a dupe of it, its Maybelline (yes maybelline again! I am such a Maybelline Lover! I hope they notice this and start sending me free makeup 😛) Totally Toffee Lipstick, you can use it for a very similar look.

Quick Summer Makeup

summer makeup

Summers are my absolute favourite for the fact that all the colours are at my disposal and I have the power to use them in anyway! Here is a quick summer makeup which is quite colourful and gives a fresh bright look.

summer makeup

Coloured eye-liners have always been my obsession. They instantly add  an exciting twist to your makeup. The eyeliner I am wearing here is Maybelline Colossal Kajal in the shade Crushed Emerald. Though the colour is attractive and beautiful, but the fact that the product smudges after a few hours and doesn’t retain the sharp neat look, disappoints me. Otherwise it can be happily worn for a few (4-5) hours.

One of the base I often use for summers is the Loreal Liquid Powder which is reviewed here. I really like it for summers for its all-day-shine-free look.

The lip colour is from one of my favourite range, the Lakme Gloss Addict Lipstick in the shade Coral Lustre, reviewed here. This range is all about sheer translucent shades which work so well during summers (well, even winters!). You must have one of the shade from this range. It’s a must have!

A detailed list of products used in this look are listed below.
