How I organize and store my jewellery

organize jewellery





A blog after almost 2 months!! How much I missed blogging!! Last few weeks have been a roller coaster ride, both professional and personal front consumed me totally and I just couldn’t take out time to blog… but now I am back and you shall see my blogs more often 🙂

One of the most prominent trait of a Capricorn (that’s me!) is, the love to organize things… In this blog, I shall be sharing my jewellery organization tips.

Both real and imitation jewellery require care and maintenance for a healthy long life. I make sure to store my jewellery in dust free, moisture free and tangle free space. This not only keeps their polish intact but also keeps them safe.

You get ready organizers in the market, if you don’t find one, zip locks and pouches can be of great use. I keep my trinklets in these clear zip pouches which together go in a one big clear pouch. The clear pouches help me locate my ornaments easily and if I am travelling, I carry along only the specific pouch.

Another thing great about having my jewellery stored in this manner is that there are zero chances of misplacing the tiny little pieces such as earring back or broken parts.

All of this zips in a compact case that doesn’t take much space and looks neat and sorted.

Colorbar Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner | Review

Colorbar Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

A liquid eyeliner is a great option for a quick go to makeup or an everyday wear. I got this new Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner from Colorbar, which is one of their new launch; and have loved wearing it each day. Read on the detailed review below:

What the brand claims:

“The Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner is long-lasting and does not smudge, crack, flake or peel. With its high definition flexible felt tip applicator, one stroke is enough to define a fine or thick line. Fast drying, Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner is suitable for sensitive eyes and those who wear contact lenses too!”




Packaging

It comes in a small black plastic bottle with the band name and product details printed over. The brush wand has a silver outer body and is quite convenient for application. Talking about the brush, my liking towards  felt tip applicators is not so great. The tip is not at all flexible as claimed by the brand, one has to work with great precision for neatness. Whereas a more flexible tip would have made things more easier. Beginners  might have problems dealing with a brush like this.

At the same time, it’s non flexible nature helps neater application in the inner corners of the eye, where a flexible tip tends to go messy sometimes.

Pigmentation

The pigmentation is quite an impressing factor here.It’s deep opaque black and looks quite striking.

Texture and Quality

I personally like matte eyeliners over glossy finish. This eyeliner come in a matte texture but not matte to an extend that looks dried and stiff, which is a good thing.

I wouldn’t call it waterproof, would rather label it as water resistant. It comes off easily with slight rubbing with water.

Wear ability

The first day I wore this liner to a mall where it happily lasted for 8-10 hours! But on usual office days where your eyes tend to get watery and tired (which is absolutely not the case when you are out shopping :P) the eyeliner stays neat only up till 4-5 hours after which it starts flaking off a bit.



Price

INR 350/-

You can buy it for INR 340/- HERE

Rating

3.5/5

Why it couldn’t make 5/5?

  1. Not absolutely waterproof as the product claims
  2. Tend to fade off after 4-5 hours
  3. The felt tip application make the application slightly challenging

Why 3.5/5?

  1. Loved the pigmentation and texture
  2. Affordable

Let me know if you have used it before, you can also suggest me some of your favorite liquid eyeliners. 🙂

Winter Makeup Guide | How to pick the right shades

Winter Makeup





We have already stepped in the cold months of the year.. It’s time for some socks, gloves and bright lipsticks! In this post I shall try my best to help you pick right products and shades for your perfect winter makeup.

Before we proceed, a quick glance at the warm and cool tones. During winters it’s a good idea to stay in the warm tone territory.

Colour-flower-tones



 Winter Makeup Guide

For Face

  1. Opt for BB and CC creams over mattifying foundations to avoid dry patches. These creams provide a higher degree of miniaturization to the skin, which is exactly what you want.
  2. For Blush, use a warm tone blush, such as peach or coral.

For Lips

  1. If choosing bright shades, opt for more of oranges or reds (with orange undertones), or deep purple.
  2. If choosing light/ nude shades, caramel, peach, coral can be some good options.

For Eyes

  1. Pencil eyeliners look great! They add more warmth to the overall look.
  2. Go ahead and try on some good deep browns and greens.
  3. While playing with eye shadows, softer matte shades can do a good job.

Travel Makeup Essentials

Travel makeup





I love to travel… and more than that, I love travelling light!  I prefer carrying the essentials so that I concentrate more on spending some fun time with family and the place rather than keeping a check on my stuff. When it comes to makeup, my bag barely allocates space to a small to medium size pouch so I have to pick only the essentials…. And ofcourse no one would want to spend all the time doing makeup…. there is so much to explore when you are out!
