Outdoor Day Makeup Tutorial

outdoor_makeup_4





Outdoor day makeup can sometimes fall flat if you pick the wrong products… Sometimes the foundation oxidizes and turns orangey, sometimes the eyeshadow is blinding or the highlighter can make you look like a bulb! The key is to keep it soft and simple by using softer shades and lesser shimmer.

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.

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.

The Mauve Dose

Soft Mauve Makeup look for day outings

Spring has arrived and so has the spring make-up trend! Of course there is no such rule book that says what shades to wear and what not to wear. Generally speaking, light make-up goes quite well during this time. If you are bored of pinks or peaches and want to bringing in a twist, yet maintain the subtle, soft fresh look… Mauve is the shade for you! Though not a very universal shade but yes a soft mauve makeup can be worn with quite a number of options like black, grey, purple or silver.

Here is how I chose to wear it for a day outing. I paired soft matte mauve lip shade with a glitter mauve winged liner (was too bored with the black-liner routine) and used highlighter for the extra dewy look. I was happy with the overall look and I am sure would suite most of you.

How to rock “Mysterious Mocha”

Mysterious Mocha

I am not a very big fan of “Brown” Lipsticks!

I do have quite a few nude beigish-pinkish-brown lipsticks and glosses but a pure “Brown” is not what I prefer. I am more of a “pink-peach” Lover.

For a change I did bring in “Mysterious Mocha”, a creamy matte lipstick from Maybelline (I have reviewed this range here) and well I was quite impressed! Though still not a very big fan! Brown, somehow I feel makes you look dull. In order to prevent myself from looking dull and boring, I wore this pretty mocha shade with a neutral eye-shadow, thick black eye-liner and not-so-heavy face make-up, and I quite liked it. I think the look can be carried off quite well for day or night outings.

If you too are not very fond of a “brown” lipstick but want to wear it and are not sure how to carry it, this can give you a few ideas.

Glitter Teal Eyeliner

teal_eyeliner

I have been highly obsessed with glitter eye-liners lately or rather I should correct myself and say I am obsessed with glitter ALWAYS!! I wore this beautiful glitter teal eyeliner for a dinner outing last week. Bling in any form looks best when worn at night.  This eye-liner is even more special as it was gifted by a dear friend when we were just out of college in 2011, so it’s like 4 years old!! can be considered vintage 😉 none of my make-up product has been so old and lasted so well!!

This look that you see was created to make the bright teal look GLAMOROUS and not over the top, for which I kept rest of the face fresh and subtle.

2015 Wedding season beauty hacks!

Fotor_144948952895817

Hi Everyone!

The wedding season is at its peak. With the growing traffic one is always in a hurry to leave home early! These beauty hacks can bring you at ease in the hustle bustle, quicken the whole process of getting ready and is also travel friendly!!

1. Hair

If your hair are done well, you are dressed up 90% already (remaining 5% effort to clothing and makeup each). Even if you fall in the category of women who do not prefer makeup, still a good hairdo can effortlessly increase your glamour level! A quick and travel friendly hack for this is to use a Flat Hair Ironing Machine. You can use this to straighten, curl, out turn or In turn your hair! 1 tool 4 looks!! I have been using Remington hair straightener for ages now and its my perfect solution to any king of hair styling I want.

Nails

With the hustle of shopping, getting ready, leaving for the venue early to avoid jams, one often decides to give nails a miss!! Here is a hack for that! Use a quick dry nail polish like maybelline dry in 40 seconds, or quick dry range from Revlon or Lakme. One of the reason why I am a big BIG fan of Maybelline Nail polishes is because of how quick they are in drying! The moment you start applying and reach the 5th finger, the first 2 are dried already! So one doesn’t really have to go through the traditional ‘Nail Polish applying steps’ of apply-wait-wait-wait instead its apply-admire for a few seconds and good to go! Top it up with a glittery top coat for the extra oomph!
