Ever wondered what is the perfect look for a kid’s birthday party!I kept thinking for a long time and finally settled for a fun bubbly makeup look using bubblegum shades of pink and blue.
I picked pink and used it on the lids up to the crease with a Carolina Blue shade blended out towards the outer corners of the eyes. And there’s just the slightest hint of silver in the inner corner of the eyes. I wanted it all to stand out yet maintained a matte finish with very slight shimmers.
Products Used –
Eyeshadow Palette : NYX Sugar Trip Squad
Eyeliner : Kat Von D Tattoo Eye Liner
Mascara : Benefit Roller Lash
Brows: Benefit Big Brow Kit
I have not used a liner in the lower lash line and just added volume with the mascara.Our favorite beauty looks are always the ones that accentuate our natural features, particularly the eyes. Especially in the parties, we want bigger, brighter and vivid eyes that catch the light in the crowd.
Green eye makeup has been quite a thing on Instagram. Most people are unsure if green eye shadow could be carried off on a regular day but trust me you just have to choose the right shade and it would do wonders from an office look to a party look. If you are pale, you can could choose darker shades and if you are on the darker side, bright shades would look great.
In the look that I created, I was hesitant to use lot of green as I was already sporting the green lens. So, I used bronze and copper along with the green which was the base shadow and extended towards the outward corners.
Primer : Farsali Unicorn Essence
Foundation : Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation + Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation
Highlighter on the cheek bones and Nose Bridge : Becca Champagne
Blush : Benefit Dandelion

Eye Primer : Bobbi Brown Eye Primer
Base : Rollin’ Dough from the palette
Green : Money bags from the palette blended evenly around the outer corner of the eyes

Blue is such a soothing yet dramatic color for makeup. Blues and greens on the eyes actually look like watercolors on fair skin. With a tinge of metallic shade , they shine like jewels. I loved to experiment with some blue eye makeup and I can’t wait to show you the end results. I see so many makeup artists experimenting with galaxy and sea foam inspired makeup. They look lovely, so I decided to start with just one color – the very vibrant blue from Huda Beauty obsession palette.
The color is so vibrant and intense that it captures the splendor of a bright blue sea appropriately.
Here’s a step by step tutorial for you guys –
I started by applying Bobbi Brown eye primer and blended it evenly all over the eye lids and the area below the brows.
I used the concealer Eraser from Benefit and covered the under eye dark circles.
I used a nude color from the Estee Lauder eye shadow palette and covered the whole area and then used the teal color in the outer corner slowly bending inwards.
I took a flat brush and used the concealer on the eyelids blending it uniformly and then used the metallic blue over it till it looked vibrant.
I lined my eyes with INGLOT black liquid liner(not a fan of felt tip though) and used NYX white on my water line. Finally, Benefit Roller Lash mascara and Ka Brow for completing the look.
This is one of the easiest eye makeup to do which can up your glam quotient in no time.
They said yellow eye shadow is the biggest trend this summer. From mustard to neon, my Instagram feed was flooded with great artists experimenting with the brightest and sunniest shades of yellow. So when I set out to explore the streets of Prague on a very sunny day, I decided to experiment with the bright hues of yellow. Thanks to my Huda Beauty Electric Obsessions, the color pop was totally worth it.
I would not even have to explain what I used if you would see the palette for yourself. I started with a Bobbi Brown eye primer for the eye shadow to show its true colors.Basically, I used a mix of pink and purple in crease and base which are evenly spread out. I used the benefit concealer on the inner corner and spread it to the middle of the eyelids for the yellow to be as bright as possible. Then, I tapped the yellow color on the concealer and slowly blended it across the lids to even it out with the purple.
Interestingly I had left my INGLOT AMC77 gel eyeliner(which I generally use) back home and I had no option but to use a lip liner on the eyes. I used NYX Maroon lip liner for the same and it did not disappoint me at all.
As always, I was a little too shy to use a bright lip color with bright eyes and a very bright yellow top. Hence, I chose MAC twig, an absolute subtle and everyday wear lip color . Benefit brows and Benefit Roller Lash mascara as usual to complete the look.

RoseGal was in fact started by a group of friends all of whom shared a deep passion for great fashion. They give specific focus to a lot of particular styles. First of all, plus size fashion – They have the most affordable range of outfits fit for all occasions – from party wear to swimwear. The second broad category is vintage fashion – There’s something so ladylike and elegant about the vintage collection they have.The vintage style is a unique fashion statement, truly capturing the essence of classic fashion. The most appealing category is the one which caters to most of us – contemporary and modern.It showcases the very recent trends and the styles are loved by one and all. My personal bet on this website, solely because it had something for everyone irrespective of gender, body type, taste etc.
Coming to the latest trend of one shoulder tops and dresses,I think it is a great way to jazz up a look, bringing in the glamour quotient almost immediately.It gives a great structure to an outfit and also breaks the body shape lines into visually longer and leaner. I love how sophisticated it looks and the fact that it makes one look really party ready in a jiffy.

The greatest feature of a kurti is its versatility. It can be worn to almost every occasion. Be it a casual gathering or a formal party, kurti can make its way through to all such events.
While pairing a kurti is almost hassle free since it goes with patialas, loose pallazos, leggings, jeans etc; I tried creating a look with this flared skirt. The kurti is from one of my favorite online shopping websites Wishalley.com ; made of the softest crepe fabric and the perfect combination of subtle colors just suiting my taste.
Crepe fabric is anyway known for its varied appeal and when you get the finest crepe kurtis at affordable prices, you can only thank your stars. I loaded the look with lot of silver jewellery and went for a light makeup.
The second kurti is a combination of peach and coral bringing in both soft and bright touch to it. While most of us like being fashionable without being in a straitened situation, very few of us actually manage to be chic without burning a hole in our pocket. Thanks to wishalley.com who offers the best options in an economic range. Whether the occasion is grand or not, the wise combination of colors in this attire makes it perfect for any event. I have teamed it with a bright orange pallazo and an orange dupatta which makes it appropriate for a formal occasion as well. For a more dramatic look, you can go for traditional hand accessories and an Indian choker. Thanks to the versatility of kurtis, you can add your flavor as per your personal style and enjoy sporting different looks.
If you feel the tranquilizing vibes of kurtis and want to breathe new life into your wardrobe; it is time to head to wishalley.com and pick some from the amazing collection.
Smokey eyes bring up the glamour quotient in no time.
I absolutely love it and when it comes to a signature makeup look, smokey eye has always been my go to. It appears a lot difficult but is definitely not to hard to do. I have improved with time learning from my mistakes and here I shall explain the whole process in 7 simple steps –
Steps I followed to get this look –
Step 1: Prepped and primed the eyelids with the Urban Decay Eyeshadow primer potion.
Step 2: Used Bae from Huda Beauty Rose Gold palette as a base.
Step 3: Used a tape at both ends to get the cut right.I used the dark brown bossy shade from Huda Beauty Rose Gold palette and applied it to the outer corner and then took it further into the crease to create the depth.
Step 4: I applied the shade Smog in gold from the Urban Decay eyeshadow box to the middle of the lid and the shade blackout in the outer corner till I was happy with the intensity.
Step 5: I applied the gold eyeshadow to the lower lashline and followed up with black liner on the lower water line.
Step 6: Then I used Chambor kohl on the upper lashline as an eyeliner.
Step 7: Lastly, I loaded it with Benefit Roller Lash mascara.
I have a more dramatic smokey look coming up very soon on the blog!Stay tuned!
An accessory can make or break an outfit. You don’t really need a designer brand name or the aid of a stylist if you use the right accessories.You could rock a tee and jeans or even a plain simple dress would come off looking really stylish with the right accessories. I love to experiment with my accessories – I had recently used a hair accessory as a choker and it got me tonnes of appreciation. Here, I am using a long neck piece in a different way to brighten up my solid red dress .Neck piece on the neck is too mainstream, so you can see how I have used it differently.
Since cinched waist is in, here’s a belt from Stalk Buy Love which is perfect for flaunting an hour glass figure. There you go –
