summer_party_makeup_5




Soft Makeup is best worn during summers, it makes the skin look fresh and breathable. Here is a look for a soft summer party makeup comprising of soft mauves and some jazz with glitter on the eyes. It can be worn best during the day and you can always turn it to a night makeup by adding in some false lashes if you desire or maybe a deep berry lipstick.

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!

Favorite Makeup – Products Purchased More Than Once!

favorite makeup_5

Some things remain simply favorite. I have absolutely loved using the below listed 4 products, don’t think would get bored even after finishing them off various times. I absolutely can’t afford to have even one of them missing from my vanity. They ought to be stocked up much before reaching the finishing line.

Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner – Black

Number of times purchased: 2

Price: INR 499/-

BUY HERE for INR 338/-

This is the second time I have got my hands on this super pigmented, long lasting gel eyeliner. I first bought this when it was launched, which was I think in 2011 or maybe 2012. Since then, I have never EVER got tempted by any other gel eyeliner. This one is my all time favorite. Be it office, outings, parties or weddings, this is the only eyeliner I trust in terms of pigmentation. It also comes with brush that makes the application very easy.

Another great thing about this product is that it can be used in various ways, as a base on the lid while doing smoky eye look or a smoked out liner look or even a sharp thin/ medium/ thick liner.

The product lasts for really long time. Infact one tub lasted me for about 2, 2.5 years! So it’s quite cost effective that way.

Maybelline Warm me up lipstick

Number of times purchased: 2

Price: INR 425/-

BUY HERE

Maybelline is great when it comes to price and quality. This was my very first lipstick! I guess it was in 2011 or 2012 when I started wearing lipstick and this was my very first purchase. It’s such a pretty pink with a hint of beige, looks almost natural and stays on for a very long time. I love wearing it!

You can see me wearing it HERE.

Maybelline Clean Express Total Clean Makeup Remover

Number of times purchased: 3

Price: INR 300/-

BUY HERE

This remover is amazing when it comes to removing tough eyeliner or mascara. It even works amazingly well in cleaning off waterproof makeup, matte lipsticks. I use it every now and then to clean my makeup brushes, specially the gel eyeliner brush and it cleans effortlessly!

favorite makeup_4

Lakme eyeconic kajal – Brown

Number of times purchased: 3

Price: INR 275/-

BUY HERE

This has to go with me everywhere! I use it in various ways… sometimes as an eyeliner, sometimes to line my lower lash line, or even as a base on the lids when I am planning to do a smokey eye look and sometimes even to fill in my brows!

I absolutely love using it on my lower lash line. There are some days when only a liner on the upper lid gives a very washed out look and putting a kohl on the lower lash line would mean adding unwanted drama, for those times, softly lining the outer 1/4th of the lower lash line with a brown pencil does the needful, this is how I often wear this brown kajal.

boho_bridal_makeup_2

The wedding season is in full swing and I see a lot of new trends coming up. The brides these days are upto new looks and color combinations. I too tried a variant and experimented with a Boho Bridal Makeup. The look is demure and understated overall, intensifying the features in a subtle manner.

This look can also work best for engagements or other wedding functions if you are wanting to go more dramatic on your wedding day.

Here I have kept a very light hand at contouring and emphasized more on making the skin look fresh and glowy.

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.

Marks and Spencer Lipstick – Review

marks and spencer Lipstick

I love summers for the fact that they allow you to be colourful in every aspect! clothes… nail polishes… lipsticks… It’s absolutely okay to go bright on lip colour selection but in my opinion, sheer translucent shades looks cooler and more breathable. One such pretty shade is the limited edition Marks and Spencer Lipstick in the shade “Chiffon”. Chiffon is a sheer soft pink-mauve shade in a creamy-glossy texture with minute glitter particles. Not prominent enough to be tagged as glittery but subtle enough to give an overall shiny look. This can be a good pick for most of you but not a very suitable shade for majority of the skin types. So you must try it once before purchasing.

marks and spencer Lipstick

 

Packaging: The packaging is very similar to that of ‘Lakme Enrich Satin”collection. A silver case paired with a transparent cap. Basic and simple. Not very impressive though, the lipstick holder isn’t very firm, the lipstick twists and rolls down by itself while applying, so you have to hold it firmly. Moreover the cap doesn’t have a very good locking mechanism.

marks and spencer Lipstick

Quality and Texture: From the very first instance of application, the lipstick feels soft and smooth. Glides on easily and evenly leaving no patchy stains. Overall, it looks and feels soft, creamy and even.

marks and spencer Lipstick

Colour Pay-off: The colour stays intact till the time you do not eat anything. After which.. whoosh! disappeared completely not even leaving behind a mark of its existance! Reapplication is required time and again. On an average stayed on for 5 hours.

marks and spencer Lipstick

Price: INR 599/- for 4gms (But bough it for INR 290/- as there was a sale running on some of the M&S Lipstick collection)

Rating: 3.5/5

Why it couldn’t make 5/5?

Though marks and spencer Lipstick did  a good job at the given price of INR 290/- , had it been for the original price of INR 599/-, the rating would have been lesser.

1. The packaging is too basic and not very sturdy. It kinda says ‘Handle me with care’.

2. The colour last for about 4-5 hours after which it vanishes completely!
