Exploring makeup brands is one of my favorite thing! e.l.f cosmetics caught my eye recently and I was compelled to give it a try. The products look quite good and they seem to cover almost  everything in a price range that your wallet would never mind. I enjoyed my mini makeup haul from elf cosmetics and would love to share it with you all. The products are still under observation, so the reviews will follow soon enough. Meanwhile you can enjoy the ride through my elf cosmetics haul!

Ethereal Glowy Prom Makeup Tutorial

thumb5





Prom makeup is the most requested tutorial these days. I wanted to do something fresh, glowy and ethereal. The look comprises of a lot of pinks and peaches which is not only perfect for the occasion but also works for almost every dress and is ideal for all skin tones. To add in a dash of fanciness, I used metallic shimmery eye-shadow and lots of highlighter. Apart from that you can also add in a pair of false lashes to step up the look.

Chit Chat with High On Gloss

makeupmagique_1

Hi Everyone!!

It is so exciting to know beauty bloggers around, I came across this wonderful person Nisha and loved her blogs, Interviewing here was so much fun!!

High On Gloss has really exciting articles for your beauty read. It’s always nice to scroll by her well written and extremely useful blogs on beauty tips, product reviews, swatches and a lot more 🙂

Let’s head further and know Nisha from High On Gloss better.

highongloss.com
How old is your blog and what gave it a kick start?
High On Gloss (HOG) is just a five months old blog. I care for it as my second baby. Few months back, one night when I was just sitting and chit chatting with my siblings, it just clicked that I must have my own blog. I straight away did some technical research and my blog was up within few hours. I am quite impulsive by nature.

When I started getting positive response from lovely readers & appreciation from fellow bloggers, within 2 months, I knew I can take it far ahead with all the passion that I have inside me for Beauty Blogging.

What is your next blog milestone to be achieved in 2017?
I am taking baby steps with HOG while nurturing it. My main focus is on producing quality content and creating a trustworthy database of product reviews so that people trust HOG for their beauty emergencies.

Who is your makeup inspiration?
Being a beauty blogger, I don’t know if it’s okay to say that I do not religiously follow any makeup artist or beauty blogger. I think every body has their own style and they are fabulous in their own way. Whenever I put makeup on, I try to create my own looks, to suit my mood.

Which is your favorite makeup brand and why?
I am never loyal to a specific brand, I always keep on switching since I easily get bored of using the same products be it skincare or makeup. I admire MAC lipsticks, Lakme blushes, Maybelline foundations & Makeup Revolution/Naked eye palettes. Maybelline wins the race since it is so versatile with it’s product range, that too at reasonable price.

What are the top 3 products you can’t live without?
Face wash, moisturizer & lip balm.

Nude or Bold lippers?
Nude Lippers.

Which is your most opted look, dramatic or understated ?
Understated.

Favorite skin care product?
AHAGlow Facewash

Drug store or high end makeup products?
Drug Store makeup products.

What’s in your travel beauty bag?
Face wash, oil free moisturizer, wet wipes, mascara, eyeliner, BB/CC cream, concealer, a nude eyeshadow palette, few lipsticks & a handy mirror. I know it sounds like everything, but whenever I leave something back at home, I feel like I should have brought it with me.

I am sure it was a delight getting to know about Nisha 🙂 Do visit High On Gloss 🙂

Maybelline New York Makeup Haul

maybelline





New York being the home town of Maybelline has a huge… like HHUUGGEE.. range of products to offer.. unfortunately in India we get a limited access to their products. I am sure I would visit their counter very often than any other place during my stay in the city.

I was astounded when I first saw their gigantic collection.. I so wanted to have it all at once!

Letting the self control take over, I chose the much raved about pore eraser cream (have been longing for this since the longest time) and one of their new born baby, the color sensational creamy matte nudes lipstick in the shade Almond Rose.

maybelline_haul_1

Almond Rose is such a pretty shade, I knew, I wanted it as soon as I saw the name and the swatch sticker…. Even without swatching it on the back of my hand and taking a closer look at the shade, I knew it was coming home with me.

The pore eraser cream on the other hand is one of the highly effective and affordable makeup primer.

The detailed review of the products would follow very soon once I am done analyzing them.

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.

organize jewellery




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.
