Wedding Makeup Look – Copper Eyes and Red Lips!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Friday, 28th February 2014

Hello everyone!

Recently, we were a midst the wedding season and I happened to attend a lot of weddings. I wore this beautiful saree to my friend’s brother’s wedding and then to my own cousin brother’s wedding. Both the times, I did the same makeup look but with different hairstyles.

Image

The saree has a lot of silver running through it but there is a tinge of copper on the neck area of the blouse. Silver makeup on my eyes tends to make me look dull and lifeless so I knew I had to go with copper.

Here is what the makeup looks like up close :

Image

How I did it and the products used :

Image

I started by using The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Moisture Lotion as my moisturizer. Then, I used the Naked By Lisa Haydon Potion Lotion as an eye cream. I went onto priming my face using the The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser followed by The Body Shop Skin Primer Matte It since I have oily skin.

Image

I applied a tiny bit of The Body Shop All In One Concealer in the shade “00” under my eyes. Then I spread a little bit of Revlon Colorstay Whipped Cream Makeup in the shade “180 Soft Ochre” all over my face and blended it with a wet sponge. I now used the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer in the shade “Ivory” to highlight areas of my face like under eyes, forehead, nose, chin and under the eyebrows. To conceal two spots, I used the Colorbar Full Cover Concealer in the shade “Soft Ivory 001”. Then, I set the entire base makeup with Chambor Silver Shadow Compact in the shade “RR2 Rose Pale”

Image

I filled in my eyebrows using the Inglot Freedom System Eye Shadow Matte Refill in the shade “329”. Moving onto the eyes, since I don’t have oily eyelids, I do not require an eye shadow primer so I just use my foundation to even out any discoloration and hide the look of veins. I spread the Blue Heaven Shimmer And Shiny Eye Shadow Stick in the shade “SS122” as a base. This is a cream product so it helps powder eye shadows stick to something. I then applied the third shade from the Maybelline Diamond Glow Eye Shadow Quad in the shade “Copper Brown” all over my eyelids and used the Loreal Infallible Eye Shadow in the shade “Endless Chocolate” in the crease for some depth. To blend everything out, I took the second shade from the Maybelline quad and ran it though the socket line. Then, to highlight the browbone and inner corners of the eyes, I used the first shade from the same quad. I lined my top lashline using the Colorbar I Glide Eye Pencil in the shade “Cocobar 02” followed by Maybelline Hyper Sharp Liner. I smudged the same pencil on the lower waterline and topped it with a black matte eye shadow from a Sleek palette that I forgot to show here!

Image

I curled my eyelashes using the very cute Colorbar Eyelash Curlers and then applied two coats each of Maybelline The Falsies Mascara and Maybelline The Colossal Mascara respectively.

Image

I didn’t want to contour a lot but wanted some definition so I used the contouring powder from the Sleek Face Form in the shade “Light” along my jawline and a little bit through the hairline. I wanted my blush to stay on for a long time so I used The Body Shop Lip And Cheek Stain in the Shade “01” first and blended it out. I also used the coral shade from the Sleek Blush by 3 Palette in “Lace” on top of that to make it last. I highlighted using the highlighting powder from the Sleek Face Form Palette.

Image

For the lips, I lined my entire lip area with Chambor Velvette Touch Lip Liner Pencil in the shade “RD-21” and filled the lips in with that too. I topped it off using the Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick in the shade “Red Coat”

Here is how it looks with a bun :

Here is how it looks with loose curls :

What’s In My February 2014 Fab Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal,Thursday, 27th February 2014

Hello everyone!

My subscription expired in January but I had won the #InMyFabBag contest in November. So, they gave me a choice between another November bag or to extend my subscription by a month. I chose to add an extra month. My Fab Bag arrived today.

Image

I absolutely love the bag. Its tartan and pretty and these bags are so useful when travelling! However, I am not impressed with the contents of the bag!

The theme this month was “Fab Bag Crew Favorites”

Image

Here is what I got in my bag :

1. Cetaphil Cleansing & Moisturizing Lotion Kit – 25 ml Sample Each

Image

These are samples of the Cetaphil Lotion and Cleanser. I have used the lotion before and it doesn’t work for my oily skin. They are generous sized samples so you will know if you want to purchase the full size. But, I don’t expect Cetaphil products in my bag. It is not a brand that I would want to try samples of. Plus, it is easily accessible everywhere!

2. Tommy G Dual Lipstick – Passion Red ( 7 ) : Full Size

Image

This is a liquid lipstick which turns absolutely matte on application. You can top it up with the gloss provided which is fairly good too. I am very happy with this product as I love matte red lips!

3. Thalgo Intense Regulating Serum – 2 ml Sample

Image

This is an absolute disappointment! I would have been excited about this product has this been at least a 10 ml sample since I have oily skin and this is a sebum regulating product.

2 ml? Seriously Fab Bag? That is like one use or two if you really stretch it out. How am I supposed to know I want the product in full size after only using it once? Give me atleast 5-10 uses! Plus, the tube is tiny and feels empty!

4. V Day Bonus Product – Cookie Man Fresh Baked Australian Cookies

Image

This is the product I was most excited about! There were 2 heart shaped cookies that were DELICIOUS!

5. Free Sample – Vivel Cell Renew Fortify + Repair Kit

Image

There are 3 products :

Fortify + Repair Facial Moisturizer – 10 ml

Fortify + Repair Body Lotion – 20 ml

Fortify + Repair Hand Cream – 10 ml

Image

Again, a blah product for Fab Bag. This is not something I would wanna try samples of too. I might keep the travel size tubes in my handbag for moisturizer emergencies but I am sure I am not going to be using the moisturizer on my face!

Image

Here is what I got overall. I am very disappointed with this month’s bag.

I expect makeup and more high end brands from this subscription service. I wonder if they pay any attention to the questionnaires we fill out in the beginning because I remember specifying that I did NOT want any skincare! The only products I am happy about are the liquid lipstick and the cookies! I don’t understand why they have increased the price if this is what they’re going to send out!

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed reading!

A Small Shoe Haul!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Tuesday, 25th February 2014

Hello everyone!

If you’ve been following my blog, It may come as no surprise to you that I love shoes! And every shopping ends up turning into shoe shopping!

So, I did some damage recently. Well, not too much since I only have four pairs.

Image

This is a pair of black faux leather wedge booties. I bought from The Heels in Cannaught Place for Rs. 899/-

Image

This is a pair of genuine leather black booties that I bought online from http://www.streetstylestore.com. They were originally around Rs. 6000/- but I found them on sale for Rs. 999/- 😀 After that there probably were only one or two sizes left so they were reduced further down to Rs. 699/-

Unfortunately, I don’t think you can find them anymore! But, the site does have a lot of other amazing shoes at great prices!

Image

Image

I am more of a heels girl than a flats girl. But, there are just times when you want to change your shoes and be comfortable or when you have to walk a lot, flats are your best bet! I bought these from Kins in Lajpat Nagar. They were Rs. 350/- for one and Rs. 600/- for two.

I hope you enjoyed reading!

Outfit Of The Day – Blue Jacket & Yellow Maxi Skirt!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 17th February 2014

Image

I fell in love with this amazing yellow maxi skirt as soon as I bought it. I absolutely adore the little slit detail on this skirt, it is so pretty and feminine and the slit adds a touch of sultry-ness!

Image

A good tip for wearing yellow is to never pair it with black to avoid the bumble bee effect. Luckily, the yellow color of this maxi skirt is not uber bright so a bright blue jacket worked beautifully!

Image

I added a green cami and green pumps to complete the bright yet sophisticated look! The blue bag pulled the whole look together.

Since the outfit was loud in itself, I didn’t want to over accessorize! So, I kept the look simple with a ring in each hand.

Jacket, Skirt, Bag, Cami – Sarojini Nagar

Pumps – Stush By Stilettos

Rings – Snapdeal

Outfit Of The Day – Green Blouse, Cropped Jacket & Leather Pants!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Friday, 14th February 2014

Image Image

 

I love wearing leather during the fall/winter time. Plus leggings are super comfortable!

Image 

I paired these leather leggings with a sheer green blouse. Since this top hits me on my thighs, it is fine to wear with leggings! The top has subtle leather details like a leather collar and leather trimmings which are more visible in real life.

Image

I wanted to add some neutral accessories so I pulled the look together with a tan satchel and a silver chained necklace that has tan feathers!

Image

Lastly, I added a black cropped jacket to avoid being chilly and completed the look with these killer green booties! ❤

Cropped Jacket, Green Blouse, Tan Satchel, Necklace and Ring – All from Sarojini Nagar

Leather Leggings – Forever 21

Green Booties – Stilettos
