2015 Winter Makeup Favourites
For me winters are too cold to look pretty! This is when my dressing-up-mode gets switched OFF. My hands feel too cold to be patient with the art work on my face… Also, I feel my skin aching to be left alone. My vanity goes on a semi-hibernation and is bought into use only during wedding or parties. Some of my winter makeup essentials are:
1. Maybelline “The Colossal” Liner
It is all I need on my eyes throughout winters. It lasts about 8 hours after which it starts to smudge and loose its intense sharp look. It is absolutely quick and easy to apply letting your hands rush back to those warm gloves!
2. Nivea – Fruit Shine Cherry
A cherry tone and flavour lip balm adds instant brightness to the face and provides the required moisture to refrain your lips from chapping. The colour tint does not last long enough, It stays for about an hour or two. It requires touch-up 2-3 times a day!
3. Nivea Soft Creme
It’s a water based moisturiser and works best for me. It doesn’t feel heavy in the face like other cold creams do. Its absolutely non-sticky. I apply this twice on my face one in the morning, immediately after a bath. And once at night after a refreshing face wash.
This was all about my winter time favourites. You too can put in your thoughts in the comments section below 🙂
Hello Dear Readers!
January is a special month of the year for me! Apart from it being my Birthday month, it’s also a month that marked an onset to this website of mine!
I do not remember the exact date, but it was January 2015 for sure that took my hobby to a next level, and all thanks to the inspiration, motivation, freedom and push given to me by my husband!
I discovered this colorful world when I was in my college 3rd year, before that, in school I was more of a Tom-boy and in college 1st and 2nd year I was going though the transition phase of a Tom-Boy turned Girlie! 😀 But again even during the college 3rd and 4th year my vanity case comprises of only colorful eyeliners and nail polishes! That was all, that fascinated me! It was mainly after I got engaged in April 2013 that this fascination took a steep turn and I started exploring my hand on makeup! And since then life has been colorful 😀
My Profession and Blogging
I am a Senior Software Engineer by profession and a Beauty Blogger by choice! With 5 days working, and weekends all about house-care-taking and outings, I am practically left with no time for blogging; but then this is where “Love for Blogging” helps me find time for all of this!
I am so looking forward to posting Makeup Tutorials and Video blogs. Maybe I shall start doing it this year and will talk about my experience with it on Makeupmagique’s 2nd Anniversary! 😀
I hope you all enjoy reading my blogs and find them useful, do share in your comments and let me know what you think.
