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.

Aroma Essentials Pro-V Serum, Hair Growth Blend

My Hair Care Regime with Aroma Essentials’ Organic Goodness: Hair Growth Blend and Pro-Vitamin Serum

Hey everyone! After Aroma Essentials sent me their products, my hair care regime changed for the better. Ever since acute hormonal changes resulted in a bitter hair fall, I realized the importance of regularly providing the hair roots with nourishment. Stocked up on oils and serums, and the AE hair kit added to it. That’s also when I chanced upon the Juicy Chemistry Hair Serum and reviewed it on the blog. Now I have almost made a vow to provide my hair follicles and strands with sheer organic goodness. Wholesome organic and pure. No sulphates or harmful chemicals.

Why I say ‘almost’ is because, I’m whimsical. 😛 Not my fault but now, Geminis are whimsical. 😛 I may want to color my hair someday, or maybe just style them at salon. Although I have kept my mane away from blow driers and heat for quite some time now, but to be honest, I do use my Philips hair dryer on the rarest of occasions and on its lowest temperature. On days when the sun fails to show up despite attempts and it rains incessantly, and I have to wash them hairs. Else there’s nothing better than air dried mane.

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

Festive Look Book : Go Bohemian This Season.. ft. Purple Eye Makeup with MAC Flamingo Road, and some Pink…

Hi everyone! Hope you all are doing good. Diwali is around the corner, and I’ll be doing a series of posts in context with the festival of lights. 🙂 Today’s post has to be special because I really went offbeat to create a purple-pink eye makeup. Well, at least it’s special for me. Because I’m really happy with how it turned out. 🙂

For the eyes, I actually used a liquid lipstick!
