SUBTLE INDIAN MAKEUP

As you would have noticed, most of my makeup tutorials have a lot of focus on the eyes. I strongly believe that if you can highlight your eyes , half the battle is won. Indian look is synonymous to dark eyes and red lips. This is a look created with the red and golden hues(but not going overboard) which is perfect for Indian weddings and parties.

Gold is a great shade for makeup and it suits the Indian skin tone really well. It is a royal color which makes your eyes pop with kohled eyes.

On the eyes –

Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Eye shadow palette

Desert sand all over the eye lids until smooth

Nefertiti on the inner corners and slowly moving towards the mid of the eye lids

Saffron and Blazing on outer corner of the eyes blended in really well

INGLOT AMC 77 Eyeliner – My favorite black of all times.Used it on the upper lash line and water line.

FOTD:VICTORIAN LOOK

Dressing in vintage style clothing for a themed event or personal fashion is always a fun thing to do. While the authentic Victorian look necessitates a full skirted dress and a corset fitted blouse, it is hard to carry it off unless the theme of the party itself is Victorian(After who wants to wear a women’s civil war dress). So, I styled it a little differently with the hairstyle and makeup going back to the 19th Century and wearing a gown which has enough flair and volume to make it look Victorian.

Night Market at Hanoi, Vietnam!

Night markets have a character of their own.I think we were at Hanoi on the perfect days(the weekend when the night markets run through the streets of Old Quarters) to have got this opportunity to get an authentic glimpse of the very colorful and vibrant market.The market stretches from Hang Dao street to Dong Xuan Market filled with seemingly endless line of stalls.From souvenirs to clothes to local craft, I just couldn’t get enough of it. The colors and lively atmosphere were a treat to the eyes. I captured some of the sights that really impressed me, no wonder I want to go back too soon 🙂IMG_0525IMG_0526IMG_0528IMG_0529IMG_0535 (1)IMG_0540 (3)IMG_0546 (1)IMG_0547IMG_0548IMG_0550IMG_0551

 

If you ever plan a visit to Vietnam, do not miss the night markets!Just walking by the street would lift your spirits. Happy travelling!

Lip Art !!!

Recently, I came across this concept of Lip Art which has been flooding the social media all over the world. Lovely pouts transforming into textured creations and going all out with sparkles and glitters. While doing an advanced lip art requires a lot of time, effort and dedication, I thought I will share my entry for the #NYXProfessionalTrendingTen with you all which was abstract and easy to do. But before that, I will share few doable lip arts which can be done by anyone and can be flaunted without the fear of being overdone.

3 Lip looks through the day!

With the New year’s eve right around the corner, there are a lot of luncheons, evening- outs and party hopping you are looking forward to,right? Do you hate to remove makeup each time and reapply when you step out again? I do too!!! So, today I started the morning with bright red lips and kept layering till the late night party to create different looks. Showing you a few pictures and throwing ideas on how to go about it!

  1. I started my day with the all-time favorite bright red lips! Product used is none other than MAC Ruby Woo. The red which suits every skin tone. If you are a Red lips lover and you haven’t tried this, go grab it right now!

2. For the evening, I tried to create Ombre lips using NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Shade Berlin and NYX Long Lip Pencil, Burgundy.I applied Berlin on the outer corners and softly blended it in, similarly used to line the lips with NYX long lip pencil in Burgundy and blended the look with a brush.

3. I wanted a bit of glitz and glamor for the party at night and hence, layered it with Berlin all over.On top of it, sprinkle INGLOT 64 body sparkles and there I was, ready to party with my shiny lips!
