FOTD : PISTACHIO AND BURNT ALMONDS LOOK(GREEN BRONZE EYEMAKEUP)

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.

SUMMER HUES : FOTD

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.

Sweater and Dhoti Swag!

I know it’s the season of sweaters and you still don’t want to let go of your swag. Tired of the “Beta, sweater pehno” instructions? So am I but it’s the month of January and the temperatures have been dropping further. I cannot do without my layers , yet cannot do away with my comfortable pants. So,last weekend for a small lunch gathering I decided to pick my dhoti pants and kept wondering what I can pair it with; without letting go of the quirk element. I googled quite a bit on a sweater/sweatshirt and dhoti combination and found nothing to my liking . So, I decided to create a look of my own with my all time favorite fit of Tommy Hilfiger pullover. All those who have seen my post on Eye Makeup:Long wings and pixie dust!  This makeup look was done with this red and black outfit!

 

The aviators and me are inseparable. The fact that they go well with anything and everything that I wear makes me really happy!

I tucked it in because I liked to show the dhoti in its full glory 😀 It looks casual and fun when you leave it out as well.

Time for an indoor picture after the sunny shoot on a cold day!

Don’t dump that oversized dress yet!

We all love to look at the mirror a zillion times in the store to be sure of the size, don’t we? Yet we cannot give up the habit of picking up stuff online. Similarly, a visit to a designer store guarantees the perfect fit customised to our body measurements, yet with time, either we gain or lose few pounds and the dress doesn’t fit us as it used to. Sigh, the endless girl problems. I found a hack to use and reuse my old oversized dresses. A good belt and a funky neckpiece has actually helped me rejig my look quite successfully. Here are some of the pictures from the latest look book –

 

Butterfly sleeves and butterflies in my stomach as I do my first outfit post on the blog 🙂

Love the fall of the dress – OSAA by Adarsh. The narrow tan belt which came with another Allen Solly dress helps bring in shape to the look!

I couldn’t have done away with this lovely dress just because I don’t fit perfectly in it any more.

Funky tribal neck piece – Somewhere from Sri Lanka! Wore it in 2 loops to create some volume around the neck.

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!
