Gothic makeup Looks

Festive Look Book: Gothic Inspired Makeup Looks, and some shedding of Fears…

Hi lovely readers,

Hope you’re still reeling in the festive fever. I think I’m too, because just as much I have nothing to do with Halloween, I just had to snatch the opportunity to do this post. I prefer going easy on makeup most times, but in today’s post I have looks that we all should try, at least once in a while! It took me quite some courage to step out of my comfort zone, and create some dark looks with a dose of Gothic. But again, a few of them are subtler versions that you can categorize under fall makeup as well. For a look or two, I put my creative hat on and let Pinterest inspire me. 🙂

I won’t be elaborating a lot on the base, as there’s a lot to talk about the color cosmetics. The base makeup has the Colorbar Perfect Match Primer, L’Oreal True Match Concealer, Maybelline Fit Me foundation and The Body Shop Fresh Nude Cushion foundation. Also for all the looks I kept my brows really stark and used the darkest shade from the MUA Brow Kit. It is a dark brown that works pretty well for me.

Festive Favorites : My Top Ten Lip Colors this Season

Hi everyone! Wish you all a very happy and blessed Diwali. You must be at your festive best and so must be your homes. 🙂 I’ve been juggling quite a lot between work, home and my blog. I actually did shoots for two posts in a day. Whew! Kinda exhausting, but I enjoy it so much.

Today I will share with you my favorite lippies for this festive season. I have my favorites from bot high-end and drugstore, and lippies with different textures. Since it’s autumn and festive, most of my favorites are richer hues, but I do have a few subtle neutrals as well. Please note that the list is a random order of my favorites, and it is not in any order of preference. 🙂 Read more

Office festive look

Festive Look Book : Lighting up a Day at Office …

Hi everyone! I had promised a series of posts pertaining to the ongoing festive season. So many of us have a day job these days (so do I), so we do not exactly have the luxury to experiment with our looks and style most of the times. I get that feeling when I want to use the wonderful products stashed away in my vanity, yet have to wait for a suitable occasion to wear them.

However with the jubilant festivities all around, why not pick up a subtle something from your dresser and light up a mundane day at work? Use a product that you would not use on any common day, and make yourself feel special for all the hard work you do? Well of course, it is not always possible when we are running short of time. But hey, give yourself a break and with only a few minutes more, you can transform your look and feel so good about it! After all, when do you use the amazing beauty products you bought for yourself, if not during festivals?

So I have three very easy looks for you that you can wear for office. And an easy from-day-to-night look as well, for those times when you have to catch up on events straight from office. 🙂 Read more

Colorbar Feel The Rain Xposed Lip Color Duo 01 Cloudburst

Colorbar Feel The Rain Xposed Lipcolor Duo 01 CloudBurst – Review, Swatches

Hi everyone! Monsoons are full on and my city is receiving a fair share of downpours. I am not too fond of rains unless accompanied by thunderstorms. 😛 Nevertheless the environment is greener and the breeze feels fresher irrespective of being laden with humidity.

I feel even better to find brands launching rain-themed cosmetics, the most prominent of which this season is Colorbar Feel The Rain collection. 🙂 It is a limited edition launch with lip colors and nail paints. Despite the decent versatility of the collection, I took my pick from the four Xposed Lip Color Duos. These are dual ended lip products with lipstick at one end and gloss on the other. I chose the shade 01 Cloudburst (love the name! 😀 ).
