Neutral Fall Makeup Tutorial ft. Bronx Colors

Disclaimer: This post is in collaboration with Bronx Colors, The products were sent to me by the brand but my thoughts on them are absolutely genuine and true.

I have never loved fall as much as I am loving it this time… In fact, more than the season, I am loving the beautiful colour scheme. Before this passes by, here is another makeup look. I did create a Fall Makeup Look before as well, that one was a bit bolder and this one is more neutral. We are soon entering November, so this could be the last fall makeup. Also, I tried some new products which were sent to me by Bronx Colors and shared my experience in the tutorial below.

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.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara | Review

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

A mascara is my essential tool these days and I was thrilled and extremely happy to try out this new launch from Maybelline. The brand has lately come up with really exciting new products one of them being the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

What the brand claims

Lash Sensational® Mascara. This fresh liquid formula captures lashes from root to tip for a full-fan effect.
Exclusive fanning brush with ten layers of bristles reveals layers of lashes for a sensational full-fan effect. Ophthalmologist tested. Suitable for contact lens wearers.

Packaging

The Body

The mascara comes in a plastic and cardboard outer packaging (which I disposed off in the excitement of trying out the product as soon as it arrived! Totally forgot to take a picture of the outer packaging 🙁 ). Talking of the mascara tube, it’s sturdy plastic and the shape is similar to the colossal mascara tube.

The Wand

The wand, I can say is unique! I am really fond of trying various wands. In fact I personally like plastic bristles wand better. This one has  plastic bristles placed in a unique manner. The inner curve helps apply mascara from the roots to the ends and the outer curve helps fan out the lashes. It’s comfortable for coating the upper lashes. For the lower lashes, it’s slightly a messy affair. I feel a thin comb like wand helps coat lower lashes neatly and in a much better way. But with practice I have gained a better control and the mess has reduced!

Quality and Wear ability

The mascara is soft creamy in texture which makes it very easy to coat each lash separately. It does dry quickly once applied. It’s intense black color , waterproof nature and it’s ability to last the whole day makes it a superb choice.

It adds a considerable amount of length and volume which increases with every coat. For me 2-3 coats work the best. The images below will help you show the difference it makes.

How to use/ apply the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

Step 1. Use inner curve to reach the roots of lashes. Sweep from the root to tip of lashes.

Step 2. Use the outer curve for a more fanned out and fuller look. Sweep from the root to tip of lashes.

Step 3. Do not let mascara dry in between coats.

Step 4. Easily remove mascara with Eye Makeup Remover.

 

Pice: INR 500/-

Rating: 4.5/5

Availabilty: You can buy it online from NYKAA or from the nearest maybelline counter.

Why it couldn’t make 5/5?

The application on the lower lashes is slightly difficult.

I hope you found the review useful, do let me know your thoughts in the comments section below!

Soft Brown Monochrome Makeup

monochrome makeup

Monochrome makeups are really exciting and I realized this when I did one! Last few days were all about fun with family and friends and I did get a chance to play with some new makeup looks. I tried on this Soft Brown Monochrome Makeup and really loved the overall look. It’s best for a day outing. If you are wanting to wear it during the night, you can add a pair of falsies are maybe deepen up the eyeliner.

This look was really simple to create and didn’t really require a lot of products.

Handling change of season hair madness | Garnier Fructis Oil-In-Cream | Review

Garnier Fructis Oil In Cream

Change of season brings not only cold and flu but also bad hair! This time my hair absolutely refused to listen to me and seemed to be living a life of their own.

I am a person who doesn’t like to experiment with new products on my hair. The side effects dread me! I had been noticing a lot of frizziness and hairfall since a few weeks now. I knew it was the changing weather behind the damage but I had to bring in something to stop the spoilage. I decided to stick to my weekly oiling routine. That did help but the results weren’t satisfying. I knew it was time to bring additional help into action!

I headed to the departmental store in search of a perfect mate for my hair. Studied various products and their specifications and finally picked up Garnier Fructis Oil In Cream. I have been using it since a week now and it’s time for a review!!

Garnier Fructis Oil In Cream

PACKAGING

It comes in an easy squeeze tube. Love the bright yellow/orange packaging…. and it’s also travel friendly (I love travel friendly, glittery, nicely packaged products in general)

Garnier Fructis Oil In Cream

HOW TO APPLY

The product can be applied in 3 ways:

  1. Over night You can massage it on your scalp and hair and leave it over night for deep nourishment
  2. Before Hair Wash You can massage it on your scalp and hair about 30 minutes prior shampooing
  3. After Hair Wash You can use it on the length and ends (NOT roots) when your hair are still damp but the excess of water is removed.

MY EXPERIENCE

I normally have straight (slight wavy sometimes) hair, with sometimes oily scalp and dry ends! They were perfectly fine a few years back but streaking made it behave abnormally!! Anyway, coming back… so lately I felt my hair becoming extremely frizzy after shampooing (even after using a conditioner). I used Garnier Fructis Oil-In-Cream on the length and ends after hair wash (and removing excess of water with a towel) and let it air dry.

The results I would say are satisfactory. My hair are less frizzy… I wouldn’t say that the frizz is gone completely… but it is cured to a great extent, They are much more manageable and my hair fall rate dropped drastically in 1 use! The fragrance is very similar to tresme conditioner and lasts for a day. Also the formula is completely non-sticky.

I even tried using it before wash, by massaging it on my scalp and hair but this way I noticed my roots looked slightly oily, so I dropped the idea of using it overnight.

I shampoo my hair thrice a week and use this product after every alternate wash (which makes it 1-2 a week) as my hair tend to look oily and flat if used after every wash. Another important thing worth mentioning here is, DO NOT use this product after oiling and shampooing, the look you get would be too oily!

The product did help It helped me by reducing hair fall and frizz. But over usage does lead to oily looking hair due to which I don’t feel very happy about the product.

PRICE

Rs. 60/- for 100gms

AVAILABILITY

You can get it easily at departmental stores or can get it online HERE

RATING

3/5

WHY IT COULDN’T MAKE 5/5?

  1. The frizzyness is controlled to some extent but isn’t gone completely as the product claims
  2. My scalp feels slight oily after wash when the product is massaged onto the scalp prior shampooing.
  3. Cannot be used after a session of oil massage and shampooing (I have even tried shampooing twice after oiling, still on applying the product, hair look too oily)

Brown Smokey Eye Makeup for the day

Brown Smokey Eye

Hello Everyone!

Hope you had a great festive week and I am sure the Diwali excitement must have taken over already… I have been experimenting with a variety of looks these days… Thanks to the festive month! I decided to try on a medium brown smokey eye makeup with a nude glossy lip color. Since I had worn this look for a day outing, I decided to keep it demure yet substantial, so I skipped using a pair of false lashes. Had it been for a night party, I would have surely added a pair of false lashes.

Tips For Wearing Brown Smokey Eye Makeup during the day

  1. DO define your brows. DON’T go too dark.
  2. DO conceal your under eye area if you have dark circles else the brown smokey eye makeup will make you look like Manjulika 😛 
  3. Skip dramatic false lashes, if at all required, you can use the individual lashes or a good mascara can do the needful.
  4. DO NOT make the inner corner of the lower lash line too smoked out. (not suitable for a day wear smokey look)
  5. Opt for a medium brown over a dark brown look.
  6. Keep the blush very subtle. DONOT use a bright pink one at all!
