Perfect Pink for barbie like-look..

13 Aug

Having a baby boy is great and all, but I have always wanted to have a little¬†girl, just so I could drimageess her up in cute floral dresses with a matching headband and pretty little sandals. But alas, I got a boy and now I have to work with the little man I have next to me, maybe I could dress him up sometime to satisfy my heart’s desire! ūüėČ

Anyhoo, since I can’t have it all, I did manage to find something that I had been yearning for for the longest time. Yes, it’s time to introduce you all to 12 Rose Neon shade from Bourjois.¬†This color is from the recent line, Rouge Edition, of Bourjois. You should check out all the latest shades in this collection because they are extremely bold and bright for the summer. ¬†And just to let you all know, I searched¬†for this beautiful pink shade everywhere, I even visited the Mac, Inglot, and Clinique stores but found nothing similar to this shade.

The bright color is extremely glamorous and it can be worn in the day for a quick shopping spree as well as during night for a date. The shade provides a barbie-barbie look to the entire face, but yes, prefer to keep the eyes bare while using this shade. Try not to use eye-shadows and lean more towards using a more natural shade eye shadow with loads of mascara and eye-liner.

This color will also look amazing with black clothing (I am a true love and an addict of the color black), but I also believe one should not be monotonous, so try wearing this with whites, nudes, but stay away from wearing bright colored shirts as it might become a bit too loud and gaudy.

Just to sum it up, the lipstick has:

image

  • Creamy matte finish
  • Moisturizing¬†
  • Great staying power ( 4-5 hours)
  • Attractive packaging
  • Price is a bit on the higher side – Rs. 995 for 3.5 grams.

I will definitely buy the lipstick again and would love to explore with the other colors of the same edition.

Dark Circles… hate ’em?

1 Sep

Dark Circles. Everyone hates them and everyone has them! I wish there was a magical wand that could just erase those dark circles .. our face would instantly become bright and would show no signs of tiredness.. but this is just a dream.. hopefully, they can create a magical “beauty” wand in the future!! ūüėȬ†Coming back to the present..like all you ladies, I have tried several eye creams for dark circles, but none seem to work. I apply my eye cream every night, sleep with it, and still NO results! But recently, I just saw a commercial for Clinique Even Better Eye Dark Circles Cream and I am tempted to buy it! In this post, I will be reviewing two of the eye creams that I have used in the past and will also be reviewing the new Clinique eye cream.

First Eye Wand: Estee Lauder Hydra Complete (Multi-level Moisture Eye Gel Creme)

  • Claims: hydrates away fine lines & eye area looks revitalized.¬†Includes a proven combination of mineral-rich Bio-Water and exclusive Hydra-Insulation‚ĄĘ technology.¬†Exclusive Biosine helps this vulnerable area maintain a strong moisture barrier.¬†This refreshing gel cream instantly soothes lines and puffiness.¬†
  • Review: On the Estee Lauder, most of the reviews seem positive but again, why would EL leave negative comments unattended ūüėČ I used this gel in the past and honestly, it made no difference in my dark circles and did not help with puffiness and swelling around the eyes. But the gel definitely left my eye area moisturized at all times. The reason I stopped using this product is because it STINGS!! Yes, you read it right, this product used to sting and my eyes would become watery and very itchy! So this gel is definitely not for girls with sensitive eye areas!
  • Would I recommend: Not really, just because it doesnt help with dark circles and it stings!
  • Rating: 2.5/5
  • Price: $40.00

 Second Eye Wand: Clinique All About Eyes

  • Claims: diminishes the appearance of eye puffs, darkness, fine lines. Lightweight, non-creep, cream/gel formula actually helps hold eye makeup in place. For use morning and night, under eyes and on the lids.
  • Review: I think this eye cream is much better than the one above! It definitely adds a lot of moisture around the eye area but again, like all the other eye creams, I never see any results in my dark circles. But I think this eye cream is better suited for people who have puffiness around their eye areas. I always use this eye cream at night so it can keep my eye area hydrated! And unlike the Estee Lauder, this eye is suitable for sensitive skin.
  • Would I recommend: Yes, for people who have puffiness around eyes
  • Rating: 3/5
  • Price: $30.00

Third Eye Wand: Clinique Even Better Eye Dark Circle Corrector

  • Claims:¬†An oil-free, hydrating cream that visibly lightens dark undereye circles.¬†Look more rested with this oil-free cream that works to keep skin nourished while lightening dark undereye circles. The skin-strengthening ingredients make skin less transparent, while the cooling massage tip breaks up puffiness. Sheer optics create an instantly brighter look for all skintones from fair to deep, leaving skin healthy and younger-looking.¬†
  • What else you need to know:¬†This product is clinically proven to visibly lighten dark circles by 30 percent in 12 weeks and is ophthalmologist tested.
  • Review: I read many reviews on this product and this eye cream got an average of 4 stars, which is pretty good for an eye. Many people did say that it helped with dark circles, but on the other hand, many complained of it being too oily and heavy on the eye area. The thing that tempts me towards this cream is the fact that it comes out in the color “nude” or rather, “peach color” , which is pretty interesting because it is an eye cream and not a concealer. From what I have read, its not meant to be used as a concealer because its far too sheer to conceal anything.
  • Rating: 4.5/5
  • Would I recommend: Yes, I am definitely thinking of investing in this product
  • Price: $39.50

Let me know if you have tried any eye creams that have reduced your dark circles! ūüôā

MAKE-UP Tips that will help achieve your famous celeb look at no extra cost…

13 Aug

Hey Friends, We all like applying make-up when we are going out either with friends or any party but we must take care of the¬†aesthetics¬†because the difference between looking fabulous and looking awkward is just one missed step… So here i m to tell you a few tips by which you can make your work much better and fabulous.. So here we go….

1. The foremost step before applying any make-up is a good amount of¬†moisturizing. Plus when we are talking about eyes, then we have to be a little extra careful as the skin around eyes is very delicate. For this one needs to necessarily apply a good eye cream before starting off.. This would also ensure that your ¬† eye make-up base don’t look flaky or dry.

2. The second thing to remember is not to¬†skip your eye make-up base and primer.. This ensures your eye make-up stays for longer and¬†don’t¬†bleed into the creases.


3. Try not to put all your makeup at once as in case of smoky eye makeup :putting on a heavy blush and an intense lipstick or a pound of bronzer will make you look sultry.. ¬†rather opt for just one thing either highlight your eyes or your lips…

 

4. If you¬†don’t¬†have a hand that settles your false eyelashes rightly, you can then use an eye lash curler to curve your eye lashes to the extend you want by using a hair dryer along with it.. first you apply a coat of mascara to your lashes then let it dry for a while, then warm the eye lash curler using the hair dryer an then curl your lashes using it.. after this apply another coat of mascara.. and wow.. u will get amazing lashes within seconds…

 

5. Always know your right facial shape so that you may learn the right way of applying a bronzer or a blush…

6. Be very careful while using glitter makeup..¬†don’t¬†over do it or cluster it all up by applying glitter eye shadow and glittering lip stick or lip gloss all together..¬†

7. If you are about to attend a wedding and your lipstick is making you look too loud then you can subdue it a little by dusting very fine glitter particles above your lipstick using a lip brush and blend it well.. this would provide a lasting effect to your lipstick as well as subdue it..  but again do it in moderation as too much of glitter can also look catchy and loud..

8. People generally apply makeup all over but forget doing the eye brows.. Your eye brows when done neatly will highlight your face nothing more than anything else in make up.. for this you can get a brow powder matching your eye brows and a very thin brush to dust that powder in between.. One can also use eye brow pencils but remember to always use a very good brand so that it may not give a sticky or catchy look..

9. Don’t go in for a matchy-matchy rule when dressing up for an occassion. One does not always need to apply the same colored eye shadow as your dress.. U can give a hint of that color in your make up but¬†don’t¬†end up wearing a mauve eye shadow with a mauve dress..

10. One also needs to pay attention to the basics like maintaining the right amount of light where you are applying your make up, the right temperature, clean hands, clean brushes and always keep a tissue by your side and your boy friend or husband as far as possible ( to avoid fuss. lolzz..).

Rest i will keep on updating this page so that you may learn better from my experiences..

8 Steps to get the deep dark kohled eyes like Kim Kardashian

11 Aug

I found this look to very attractive so i wanted to share this with you.. dont take it to be easy, just be patient and have a stable hand.. So here we go..

1. First  of all apply a good Eye Concealer matching ur skin tone under your eyes : this would ensure that your under eye circles are not visible anymore..

2. Eye Make up Base so that your eye make up does not clump in the creases and stays for a longer time : Here you can either use Benefit Lemon-aid or kryolan or any other brand u find to be suitable…

3. Next apply a neutral eye shadow all over ur upper eye lid and ur brow bone. Else use a pearlescent powder to accentuate ur brow bone..

4. Then apply a Light grey eye shadow all over your lower eye lid starting  from inner corners to the outer corners of the eye..  After this apply a dark grey or black eye shadow at the outer corners of the eye and using a smudging brush smudge the darker colour with the lighter one..

5. After this apply a thick black eye liner very close to your lash line and extend it slightly outwards

6. Then line your inner eye rim- lower as well as upper with a black kohl and using a thin brush apply the black eye shadow under the lower rim of the eye and smudge it a little downwards to get a bolder effect.

7. After this u can either use false lashes or if you are not comfortable using them, apply 2 coats of mascara on the upper and lower lashes to get the desired look

8. Finally remember to dust off the excess eye shadow from your face so that you don’t end up looking messy.. One can even use skin tape to cover the areas around eyes still if you would be a little careful you won’t need it..

So go ahead and try this look but remember to keep the rest of your make up simple and classy..!!
