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 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.

The Mauve Dose

Soft Mauve Makeup look for day outings

Spring has arrived and so has the spring make-up trend! Of course there is no such rule book that says what shades to wear and what not to wear. Generally speaking, light make-up goes quite well during this time. If you are bored of pinks or peaches and want to bringing in a twist, yet maintain the subtle, soft fresh look… Mauve is the shade for you! Though not a very universal shade but yes a soft mauve makeup can be worn with quite a number of options like black, grey, purple or silver.

Here is how I chose to wear it for a day outing. I paired soft matte mauve lip shade with a glitter mauve winged liner (was too bored with the black-liner routine) and used highlighter for the extra dewy look. I was happy with the overall look and I am sure would suite most of you.

How to rock “Mysterious Mocha”

Mysterious Mocha

I am not a very big fan of “Brown” Lipsticks!

I do have quite a few nude beigish-pinkish-brown lipsticks and glosses but a pure “Brown” is not what I prefer. I am more of a “pink-peach” Lover.

For a change I did bring in “Mysterious Mocha”, a creamy matte lipstick from Maybelline (I have reviewed this range here) and well I was quite impressed! Though still not a very big fan! Brown, somehow I feel makes you look dull. In order to prevent myself from looking dull and boring, I wore this pretty mocha shade with a neutral eye-shadow, thick black eye-liner and not-so-heavy face make-up, and I quite liked it. I think the look can be carried off quite well for day or night outings.

If you too are not very fond of a “brown” lipstick but want to wear it and are not sure how to carry it, this can give you a few ideas.

Red Lips + Glitter Gold Eyes

red_gold makup1

The classic red gold makeup

Red and Gold is an ever classic combination and the safest to play with when getting decked up for a close wedding and want to choose a dramatic look. For this classic red  gold makeup, I chose to pair glitter gold eye make-up with a bold red matte lip color. Since the two shades spoke for themselves, I kept a loose hand at the blush. A highlighter is inevitable!

Glitter Teal Eyeliner

teal_eyeliner

I have been highly obsessed with glitter eye-liners lately or rather I should correct myself and say I am obsessed with glitter ALWAYS!! I wore this beautiful glitter teal eyeliner for a dinner outing last week. Bling in any form looks best when worn at night.  This eye-liner is even more special as it was gifted by a dear friend when we were just out of college in 2011, so it’s like 4 years old!! can be considered vintage 😉 none of my make-up product has been so old and lasted so well!!

This look that you see was created to make the bright teal look GLAMOROUS and not over the top, for which I kept rest of the face fresh and subtle.

Gold-Rust Make-up look!

Gold-Rust-Makeup

Hi Everyone,

With the wedding season in full swing, I have a series of party/ wedding looks for you all to try. One of which is a Gold Rust Makeup look which I would be talking about in this Blog. This looks works best with Black, Gold, Maroon or Rust coloured outfits.

Gold Rust Makeup
Gold-Rust-Makeup

Eyes

Here the eyes are kept less dramatic as my Lipstick shade is dark enough to add drama. On the eyes I used a soft gold on the lids and a brownish-copper on the outer V. Softly lining the eyes,  Avoiding a dense line of Kohl instead paying attention just on the outer 1/4th of the eye for a wider and bigger look.

Lips

I have used a pretty rust-copperish lipstick here from maybelline, named ‘Keep Me Coral’
