Drugstore products will always be my favorite!! I have a close relationship with Maybelline, for it was the first brand I started using when I had put my initial steps in the beauty world. It’s affordability and good quality never seizes to impress me! I got my hands on the new CITY KITS face and cheek palette in URBAN LIGHT, have been using it for a week now and here is what I think!
Nothing can be as annoying as those eyeshadow fallouts!! Doing your makeup neatly is as important as choosing the right products, color combination, and techniques. Especially if you are choosing a bold eye makeup look, you definitely need to pay special attention to making it neat and clean. Here are some simple tips that work really well for me and I personally use every time.
I am so obsessed with eyeshadows these days! Eyeshadow palettes never seize to mesmerize me and how badly I wish to grab every good palette I come across. Not only pressed eyeshadows, but even liquid and cream ones. When I first got a chance to try liquid eyeshadows, I knew they are going to be super useful and handy for the fact, they are quick and easy to apply and last much longer than usual eyeshadows.

Rose scents have been my favorite for the longest time. I am always thrilled to try rose scented products. My perfect pick for a scent would be something mild and gentle, like a fresh bouquet of pink roses, nothing over empowering but definitely something that would linger on for a long time. Demeter brings a huge variety of fragrances and it was irresistible to try two of their rose variants, Bulgarian Rose and Pruning Shears.
A good wedding or party makeup is largely dependent on how you do your eyes. Eye makeup surely plays a very important role in stepping up your overall look so it’s a good idea to practice doing your makeup before a special event, that will also give you a better idea as to what shades work best for you. Back in 2013 when I was getting married and decided to do my own engagement makeup, I used to practice and play around with different shades and textures almost every day and that surely helped me figure out what would look the best.
A good elaborated complete skincare routine is definitely a good habit to adopt and nothing better than having naturally clean and glowing skin. Though I like to commit to my skincare routine on a regular basis, for days when I am just not willing to spend a lot of time doing so, I follow 3 simple steps in less than 5 minutes that ensure I go to bed with clean happy skin.

It always thrills me when drugstore brands come up with new and exciting launches. Not all of us (including me!) want to splurge on high-end makeup every time… this is when a good drugstore product comes into the picture. In 2017 Holiday season, Profusion launched a variety of new and exciting products and I was one of the lucky ones to receive them!! Since the past couple of months I have been playing around with a lot of their products and the overall experience has been quite pleasant.
Oh Wait! just if you are wondering where to find all of their products; they are now readily available at your local Target store and coming up with some irresistible spring collection… Stay tuned! 😀
Metallic eyeshadows have become my latest obsession! I can’t stop myself from reaching out for every gorgeous blinding eyeshadow that comes my way… and why not! A statement eye look is such an effortless way to add glamour and nothing as good as a striking metallic eye look. The look today is blingy metallic silver eye makeup paired with berry lips. I wanted the eyeshadow to speak for itself so decided to skip on the falsies and eyeliner. Silver is such a universal shade… it can be a perfect match with almost every lip shade. I like to team it up with the family of pinks and plums.
Last week I posted a video on YouTube featuring a makeup look with caramel and deep blue combination. I have been really fond of blue eyeliners since the longest time and I wanted to try a look especially keeping in mind the Valentines day. With lots of pink and red makeup looks flooding the internet, I wanted to choose a different theme just in case you have already had an overdose of these two shades… not that I detest a soft romantic pink makeup look or a bold red statement look, I just wanted to give other colors a chance on a date night.
