Jabong Beauty Blogger Meet!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Friday, 26th June 2015

Hello everyone!

J6

I was invited to the Jabong beauty blogger meet held on the 24th, focusing on newly launched brands on the e-commerce giant. The brands in question are Makeup Revolution London and Roman Beauty.

J4

We were introduced to the remarkable brands and got to experience the formulations and the workings first-hand.

J7

Roman beauty is a hair styling brand that offers epic, automatic products like hair straighteners and curling irons delivering fast and lust-worthy results. We had a gala time exploring various tools and testing them out for ourselves!

J2

But admittedly, the most exciting and fun part was of course, makeup! I am highly impressed with the quality of products from Makeup Revolution and will definitely indulge in a few palettes myself. I felt that the star products of this brand are it’s wide ranging eye shadow palettes with something for everyone to choose from.

J1

The opacity and pigmentation of these shadows is beyond fantastic and the price that you pay for them is highly justified. I suggest you get your hands on one of them soon to try them out for yourself. Many palettes in this collection are great, inexpensive dupes for the Urban Decay Naked palettes.

After the grand introduction to these products, we proceeded to enjoy a lovely meal with fellow bloggers.

I hope you enjoyed reading!

P.S. An outfit post will be up very soon showing you what I wore to this meet. So, stay tuned!

My Go To Smokey Eyes And Bright Lips

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 22nd March 2015

Hello everyone!

I’m the kind of person who enjoys full-on makeup! Thankfully, I have been blessed with clear skin so I have nothing to hide but I absolutely love artfully done and well applied makeup. Think smokey eyes + bright lips all together! It may not be everyone’s cup of tea since people like to go a bit muted on the lip when doing a heavy eye. I say, bring it on!

This is my go-to smokey eye makeup. Its bronze, its gold, its brown, its gorgeous! I can do this look anywhere with anything that I am wearing and be confident that my makeup looks fantastic. When I don’t know what I want to do or when I have to glam up in a hurry, this is the look I always gravitate towards.

Makeup Look – Glittery Plum Eyes + Peachy Nude Lips

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 2nd March 2015

Hello everyone!

I have recently purchased a ton of new makeup (watch out for hauls coming soon!) because I was bored with my current stash and wanted to experiment with new products, So, I was playing around with everything and came up with this gorgeous plum makeup look that is perfect for a party/wedding. It involves a lot of glitter and dewy skin and I absolutely love this makeup look. You can expect to see a lot more looks since I’ve also been trying to get out of my comfort zone of neutrals and try some fun shades like greens, blues, purples and oranges.

My Go To Makeup Looks!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Tuesday, 7th October 2014

Hello everyone!

I suddenly realized that I’ve never done a post on my everyday makeup!

I want to show you my basic everyday makeup and the look that I gravitate towards the most. This is the makeup that will look great on almost everyone and it is easy to achieve. It makes me look polished and put together and I can finish my makeup in just 20 minutes when I know this is what I’m going to be doing! I have been sticking to this look since about a year now and I haven’t felt the need to change it because it looks amazing and so many people have complimented me on it 🙂

This is also the look that you’ll find me wearing in most of my outfit posts because it looks great with everything. I do change my lipstick and blushes every so often when I want a different shade. Sometimes, I’ll use a colored eyeliner as well but for the most part, this is how I prefer my makeup to look like on an everyday basis :

M1

Winged eyeliner and nude lips is such a great look for everyone. Winging your eyeliner perfectly will take some practice but don’t worry it will come!

Here are all the steps involved to achieve this look and some of my favorite products that I use every time I put makeup on :

1. I like to start by priming my face with either The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimizer or The Body Shop Skin Primer Matte It. Sometimes I use both of them together, I don’t necessarily have large pores but I have oily skin and I like to prolong the wear of my makeup as much as I can! During the winter time when my skin is not as oily, I like to apply MAC Strobe Cream on my cheeks for added glow. I usually like to wait a minute before I put foundation on to let the primer set.

2. After priming, I buff a thin layer of foundation all over my face with a buffing brush or fingers. I always make sure to apply a really thin layer because I don’t like to look cakey! Some of my favorites are the Lakme Absolute Skin Natural Mousse for really oily days, Benefit Hello Flawless Brightening Makeup, Loreal Infallible 16Hr Foundation, Lakme CC Cream! I like foundations that are meant for normal skin and don’t have a very matte finish because I like to look glowy and healthy.

3. Most of the foundations that I like have sheer to medium coverage and I prefer that because I don’t want heavy coverage all over my face. I use the Clinique Even Better Concealer in the shade Orange Brightener under my eyes. It is an orange concealer that helps to cancel out any purple/blue undertones under the eyes. Over that I’ll use the Benefit Boi-ing Concealer which I also use to spot conceal if I have a breakout. To highlight my cheek bones, upper lip area, under the eyebrows and forehead I apply a thin layer of Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer.

4. If I want my blush to last extra long, I’ll apply a cream blush on my cheeks but on most days I just go ahead and set the whole face with my all time favorite powder, Chambor Silver Shadow Compact or Benefit Hello Flawless Powder. If I want a sheer-er compact I’ll use Rimmel Stay Matte Powder or Maybelline Clear Glow Compact.

5. Then, I fill in my eyebrows with Inglot Matte Shadow in the shade 329 and set them with The Body Shop Eyebrow Gel or clear mascara. If I need to get my eyebrows done and they’re very unruly then I’ll use an eyebrow wax from Inglot before filling with powder.

6. Moving onto eyes, I draw a fine line on my top lashline with a black kohl liner, mainly Maybelline Colossal Kajal or Lakme Eyeconic Kajal. Sometimes I’ll use a brown like Colorbar I-Glide Pencil in the shade Cocoa Bar or Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil in Metal Brown. (Other times I may use a green, purple, grey or blue depending on my mood but on most days its either black or brown.) I like to smudge the line with a pencil brush. Then, I line both my top and bottom waterline with the same shade and smudge it a little on the lower lash line with a pencil brush. Then I start with a liquid/gel eyeliner like Maybelline Eye Liner Pen or the Maybelline Gel Eyeliner in Black and trace along the top lash line creating a wing at the end. I then curl my lashes with the Colorbar Eyelash Curler and use my Holy Grail mascara, Maybelline the Falsies on both my top and bottom lashes. I like to apply a second coat of mascara with Maybelline The Colossal Volume Express and this combination gives me long voluminous lashes every time!

M5

7. I like to define my cheekbones for which I contour my face slightly with Sephora Powder Foundation in the shade Deep and lightly dust some on the sides of my forehead and under my jawline as well. I use a different shade of blush almost everyday but my favorite is Sleek Lace Palette. After blush, I’ll use a highlight from the Sleek Face Form Kit on my cheekbones, under the eyebrows, on my cupid’s bow and in the center on my forehead.

8. Like blush, my lip color changes everyday. But, one combination I keep coming back to is Nyx Lip Liner in Natural and Lakme 9 to 5 Lipstick in the shade Red Chaos on top! This is the most beautiful peachy nude combination for my complexion and I prefer matte lips over glossy lips!

P.S. I like to use a makeup setting spray just before I head out to help my makeup last extra long!

I don’t use eye shadows on an everyday basis but on some days I like to get fancy! 😛

M2

And sometimes I’ll wear a matte red lip which to me, is the most beautiful look in the world! But who wears red lips everyday?

M6

When I feel like going all out, I’ll combine smokey eyes with red lips!

M4

Sometimes I’ll play with eyeliner and do something like this :

M3

I had a lot of fun compiling this and sharing my favorite looks with you all! I know this can be a lot of makeup for those of you who only wear Kajal on a day to day basis but I absolutely love makeup! Also, this may seem like a lot of steps but it only takes me around 20 minutes to complete my whole face. I hope you found this post helpful and learnt something new!

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 :
