10 Makeup Blunders To Avoid!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 6th January 2014

Hello everyone,

Today I am going to be taking you through 10 of the most common makeup mistakes that I wish people could avoid.

There are many YouTube videos and blogs that you can follow for makeup inspiration. Pick up any magazine and you will see a flawless face on the cover. No, celebrities don’t wake up in the morning looking that pretty. A lot goes into making them look as we see them. They have a crew of makeup artists, hair stylists and wardrobe stylists following them. However, on a daily basis we should aim to look and feel our best.

So, as promised in my last post, here a few of my personal makeup pet peeves and how to get past them :

1. Miss Cake Face :

This is one of the most common makeup mistakes. Cake face isn’t pretty. We don’t need absolutely full coverage on a daily basis, even if you suffer from acne scarring. It looks highly unnatural and attracts further attention to the skin.

The sun is NOT your friend. It will highlight any problem you have. Instead of caking on concealer, use a BB cream, tinted moisturizer or a sheer coverage foundation and spot conceal. This will not only even out your skin tone but also conceal any problem areas. Let your foundation cover most of the problem first then you can conceal if you need to.

Also, full coverage makeup is suitable for the night and flash photography. You can get away with a lot more at night time. If you have good skin, please don’t feel the need to use foundation, concealer and powder. Flaunt your lovely skin by highlighting your under eye area and using some powder to reduce shine.

2. Miss Glitzy Face : 

Too much glitter on the face can look creepy and unnatural. You should always use glitter/glow on one aspect of your face and own it. If you want glowing skin, keep everything else relatively matte. If you’re wearing glitter eye shadow then skip the gloss and wear matte lips. Dewy skin with sparkly eyes and glossy lips can sometimes look too much. It may look beautiful in magazines and on runways but it doesn’t translate so well in real life.

3. Miss Color Bomb Face :

Too much color on the face can look clownish. It is safe to stick to neutrals on a daily basis. Something that you can do to make your features look harmonious is match the color of your lipstick to your blush. You could also use your bronzer as eye shadow to create uniformity.

4. Miss Excessive Face :

A good rule of thumb to follow is to either play up your eyes or your lips. There may be exceptions like black smokey eyes with red lips which can beautiful during the night. But, on a daily basis, heavily kohl-ed eyes with bright lips can be a bit much. If you want a loud mouth, keep your eye makeup minimal with just a bit of defining on the top lash line and mascara. It will not distract from your beautiful features while still highlighting what you want to put forth.

5. Miss Different Colored Face :

I cannot stress the importance of matching your face to the rest of your body. Your face and your body have to look like they belong to the same person. Please accept your complexion and skip the fairer foundation or darker foundation, unless your body is tanned and the face is not.

6. Miss No Lashes :

Do NOT skip mascara! Mascara is a very important step in your daily makeup. The effects are beautiful! It opens up the eyes and makes you look more awake. I see so many girls with beautifully Kohl-ed eyes but no mascara! Why? Oh why?

7. Miss Red Teeth :

I will agree I have also suffered from this horrendous disaster. The best way is to use matte lipstick. If that isn’t your cup of tea then use gloss sparingly. Another wonderful trick is to take your finger and wrap a tissue around it and clean inside your inner mouth with it, that way, the lipstick that would’ve gotten on your teeth is now on the tissue.

8. Miss What Happened To Eyebrows? :

Eyebrows are such an essential part of your face that often get neglected! They frame your face in a wonderful way when done right. Do not over pluck them but do not leave them bushy and untamed. You can fill them in with brow powders, pencils, gels, brow pens etc. and set them with brow gel or hairspray. If you’re lucky and have dense brows naturally, just give them a brush through with a spooly and set them with brow gel/hairspray. Essentially, the color of your eye brows should match the color of the roots of your hair.

Always remember, if your eyebrows look great, people are going to notice how beautiful your eyes are but, if your eyebrows look wrong, they’re going to notice how bad your eyebrows are!

9. Miss Flaky Face :

Flaky dry patches on the skin are not attractive. Anything you apply over a dry patch will cling and only highlight the problem. Applying a good moisturizer suitable for your skin type is so important. Also, using a primer will help minimize pores and make the foundation glide on your skin. Your makeup will look fresh and last longer this way.

10. Miss Powder Face :

Powder is very essential to set your makeup, especially for oily beauties. But, overload of powder makes you look dry and flat. Only powder shiny areas like the T-zone and to set your under eye concealer. Use a light hand and before touching up your powder later in the day, blot the oil on your face with blotting sheets or a single tissue, then apply the tiniest amount of powder on top.

Makeup should be used to enhance your natural beauty and give you a boost of confidence. A mistake is not the end of time and don’t give yourself hell over it. There is always a next time! 🙂

Also, NEVER sleep with your makeup on. no matter how tired you are. If you really are too tired to wash your face, tone and apply moisturizer, at least wipe it all off with a makeup wipe.

I hope you found this helpful.

Thank you very much for reading!

October Favorites!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 4th November 2013

I hope you had a lovely and safe Diwali! 🙂

Where did October go? In fact where did 2013 go? Well, no point getting into that.

I know I have been MIA lately. October has a lot of birthdays and festival preparations! I have been incredibly busy and didn’t have any time to sit and type! Stay tuned for a lot of hauls because that is what I have been doing! 😛 and this is what the festival season is all about!

This is my first favorites post and I did have some items that I wanted to tell you about.

Image

1. Lakme CC Cream

I have extremely oily skin but since the weather is changing, my skin has been acting weird. It is oily on some days and dry on others. So, on those blah days, I turn to this wonderful product. It is neither too drying nor too emollient. It has a perfect natural finish and feels like nothing on the skin. Keep it mind that it doesn’t have a ton of coverage but yes, it is build able. I use my sunscreen and a primer underneath. If you’re dry skinned then you will definitely need some prepping before this. I am wishing other drugstore brands would come out with CC creams too because I haven’t had any success with BB creams!

2. Florelle Wet & Dry Blush – Marmorized

Image

I received this blush in my October Vellvette Bag

This is a beautifully pigmented blush! It is perfect for fall and will go with any dark lipstick. It gives a believable sheen to the cheeks without depositing chunky glitter!

3. Lotus UV Screen Matte Gel

This is my Holy Grail sunscreen and I never step out in the sun without wearing it. I do not use moisturizer when I use this as sunscreens are emollient enough. This product also acts like a primer. It makes the skin appear smoother and makeup adheres better when I wear this. It will not melt off of your face and it doesn’t flash back! It offers SPF 50 and PA+++ protection. What’s not to love?

4. Sleek iDivine Eye Shadow Palette – Storm

Image

I LOVE Sleek products! I really wish they’d come to India. However you can order their stuff online from their website.

This is my go to everyday palette! I take this palette with me even when I travel and I am set in the eye shadow department. The shades are gorgeous, amazingly pigmented, smooth to apply, easy to blend…. And I can go on and on.

Sleek Blush Palette In “Lace” Review

Sleek Pout Paints in “Port”, “Lava” and “Pin Up” Review

5. Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Extreme – Sheer Cherry

Image

This is another product I received in my August Vellvette Bag

I am not much of a lip gloss person. I prefer lipsticks and lip crayon things.

But this is such a beautiful coral pink color that I want to wear it everyday! 😛 ANNDDDD it makes the lips look fuller. It is non sticky, has a brush applcator and I don’t feel like my hair will stick to my lips. So Yay! 😀

6. Faces Eye Liner in Metal Brown

This is a very creamy liner and glides on easily on the upper lash line. It doesn’t tug on the delicate eye area and stays on pretty well! You can also use it on the waterline.

7. Lakme Eyeconic Kajal

It is pigmented and stays on the waterline. It doesn’t give me raccoon eyes and doesn’t irritate them either!

Image

8. Maybelline Color Tattoo

I know this is a hyped product and rightfully so! I have to admit I was using them wrong before and didn’t quite understand the hype around them but now I absolutely love them! You only need to apply the thinnest layer. They’re pigmented and extremely long wearing + waterproof. They’re available in a multitude of colors but since I am most comfortable with neutral eyes I have been using a bronze shade and a gold one a lot during this month!

Image

9. QVS Flat Top Kabuki Brush

I use this brush for everything! Buffing foundation, applying powder, applying blush, blending bronzer! I own two as of now. Flat top brushes are very versatile and can be used for a variety of things! When I am in a hurry this is a god send because I don’t have to find a blush brush and a powder brush and a bronzer brush!

10. Inglot 17TL brush

Angled brushes are also very versatile. They can be used to apply eye liner, fill in the eyebrows, apply concealer around the lips….

I use this one for my brows and it is perfect!

Image

So that is it for my monthly favorites!

Amazing Inexpensive Products! <3

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Friday, 6th September 2013

Hello everyone, today I will be talking about my favorite drugstore products that are inexpensive and perform just as well and even better than high end products. These products are readily available and easy on the pocket! Now who doesn’t love that?

You might want to sit down comfortably with a coffee because this is going to be a long post since I have a lot to share! 🙂

FACE :

1. Lakme Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse

d15

This is my favorite foundation for sheer coverage and it looks really natural. Plus it costs only Rs. 599/-

Read Full Review HERE

2. Chambor Sheer Delight Ultra Matte Foundation

d16

This is also one of my favorites. It looks very natural and this shade matches me exactly! It costs Rs. 799/-

Read Full Review HERE

I really only use sheer foundations since I do not have problematic skin. It is  just really oily. So, I don’t like to cover it up with full coverage foundation. When I do ever want to use full coverage foundation, it is pretty much always Revlon Colorstay for Combination/Oily skin.

3. Maybelline Clear Glow Compact

d9

This compact has some amount of coverage and it instantly brightens up the skin. At only Rs. 175/-, this product is a steal. It does not have that powder matte effect and it looks natural on the skin.

4. Maybelline Clear Glow BB Stick

d10

This is a very easy product to use. Just swipe it on your face and blend. It blends beautifully, looks natural and provides sheer coverage. Very oily people can use this in the winters but in summers it makes the face shiny. However, this is great for normal skinned people and even dry skin over moisturizer. Available only in two shades though, for Rs. 250/-

4. Lakme Absolute Moonlit Highlighter

d14

I love the bronzer side of this! It gives that beautiful sun kissed look and its great for warming up the whole face slightly with a natural looking glow. The highlighter however has some chunky glitter that I am not too fond of on my cheeks. If you can move past that, the base is pinkish and makes the skin look beautiful and healthy. It looks ethereal in the inner corners of the eyes and both the shades can be used as eye shadow. Retails for Rs. 600/-

There are blushes in the Lakme Absolute range too that are really good!

EYES :

1. Garnier Anti Dark Circle Eye Roll-On

d6

I don’t like to use heavy duty concealers everyday. This shade is perfect for my under eye area and brightens them up. But, it only gives sheer to medium coverage. If you have really stubborn dark circles, I would recommend the Colorbar Pot Concealer which is worth Rs. 500/- and comes in multiple shades with pink and yellow undertones.

This however, comes in only two shades. “Light” and “Dark”. The light shade luckily is perfect to liven up my face. It retails for Rs. 199/-

2. Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil

d11

This is a beautiful eye pencil that glides on smoothly and doesn’t tug on the delicate eye area. It comes in multiples shades like blue, green, purple, brown, black, grey etc and I own 3-4 shades. Price Rs. 249/- to 349/-. The only drawback is that you have to sharpen it!

3. Lakme Eyeconic Kajal

d4

This glides on smoothly too and doesn’t tug on the waterline. It doesn’t need more than 3 swipes in the waterline to show full pigmentation and its very black! All this for only Rs. 200/- 😀

4. Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye Shadows

d7

These are extremely long wearing, waterproof cream eye shadows that are really easy to apply. Just swipe them all over the lid with your fingers and you’re done! They’re great for a quick look and stay put all day, even in the water. They come in a variety of shades and are sold for Rs. 350/- each.

5. Maybelline The Falsies and The Colossal Mascaras

d8

These two are my favorite mascaras and I have never found any other mascara  that works as well as they do! I like to use them together. Falsies for length and Colossal for volume. They give me voluminous lashes that actually look like I am wearing falsies! LOVE! ❤

Falsies – Rs. 425/-

Colossal – Rs. 330/-

I prefer the waterproof versions because they hold a curl better. But, they are a pain to remove! I am willing to bear the hassle of removing them if they make my lashes look amazing! 😛

6. Elle 18 Eye Sparklers Shadow Sticks

d13

These are intensely pigmented shadow sticks that are smooth and easy to work with. They can be used as a base for your shadows or on their own and they come in 5 shades. They don’t last as well as the color tattoos but for Rs. 85/- a pop, you cannot really go wrong!

7. Maybelline Diamond Glow Eye Shadow Quads

d5

This is my favorite quad. I like neutral shadows and this makes everything so easy. You can achieve a light natural look and also a smokey look with this quad. They are intensely pigmented and easy to blend. The first shade is a beautiful highlight shade and the third shade is a beautiful rose gold! 🙂

They come in quads of different colors too. Available for Rs. 450/-

Read Full Review HERE

8. Inglot Eye Shaodows

d17

They are very pigmented, stay on all day, easy to blend and come in a plethora of shades! A pan costs Rs. 300/- for one eye shadow and a pot will cost around Rs. 450/-

9. Maybelline Gel Eyeliner

d3

This works just as well as the Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner and is a hell of a lot cheaper! Intensely black, can be used as a liner or as a dark base all over the lid. It is waterproof and will not budge throughout the day! Price Rs. 500/-

LIPS :

1. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains

d12

They are my go to lip products! In fact I have used them so much that the lettering has come off and they have lost their pointy shape!

They stain the lips, stay all day and are comfortable to wear. The darker shades are more staining than the lighter ones. The glossiness will wear off in a while but the stain stays. I keep applying my regular lip balm throughout the day if I feel the need for moisture!

They retail for Rs. 600/- each.

2. Colorbar Lipsticks

d18

1. Colorbar Soft Touch Lipstick in “C 40 Citrine”. This is a great wearable reddish orange.

2. Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in “60 OR Obsessed Orange”.  This is a straight up neon orange.

3. Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in “63 P Shy Cherry”. This is a berry toned deep pink.

4. Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in “61P Thrilling Pink”. This is a mauvy nudey pink.

The Soft Touch lipsticks from Colorbar are really easy to wear and last for 3-4 hours. Priced at Rs. 325/-

The Velvet Matte lipsticks are slightly drying but still comfortable to wear. They work well over a lip balm too and last for 3-4 hours. Priced at Rs. 250/-

All these come in multiple shades! There is a shade for everyone! 🙂

3. Maybelline Lipsticks

d19

1. Maybelline Superstay Lipstick in “Non Stop Red”. This is very beautiful pinkish red. – Rs. 525/-

2. Maybelline Colorsensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick in “BR41 Windsor Rose”. This is a wearable sheer red. – Rs. 250/-

3. Maybelline Colorsensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick in “CB41 Coral Pink”. This is a true coral pink shade. – Rs. 250/-

4. Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in “840 Coral Lustre”. This is an orange with shimmer. – Rs. 399/-

All of these lipsticks are great and all of them have a separate formula.

-The Superstay lipsticks are extremely long wearing but slightly drying.

-The Moisture Extreme range is almost as moisturizing as a lip balm and yet the lipsticks are beautifully pigmented. They are the most comfortable to wear but do not wear for a long time.

-The regular Colorsensational range has a watery shine and semi matte texture and they are also comfortable to wear.

4. Elle 18 Lipsticks

d20

1. Elle 18 Lipstick in “42 Coral Romance”. This is a beautiful nude coral.

2. Elle 18 Lipstick in “27 Rosy Blush”. This is bright red orange.

They have a balm in the center and wear for about 2-3 hours. Available in several shades and at Rs. 100/- each, you cannot really complain!

NAILS :

1. Lakme Nail Polishes

d1

The absolute range dries really fast and makes life quick and easy. But it may chip off on the 2nd day. Still worth it due to the crazy dry time! – Rs. 199/-

The Color Crush Range will dry in a few minutes but it will stay on longer. – Rs. 150/-

2. Revlon and L’Oreal Nail Polishes 

d2

Revlon Top Speed nail polishes dry really quickly too and this silver shade is fully pigmented in just one swipe! Rs. – 210/-

L’Oreal nail polishes dry in normal time but these glitter ones dry quickly, I love them, the packaging reminds me of YSL and they are also available in plenty of shades! – Rs. 235/-

Read Full Review HERE

HAIR :

1. Matrix Biolage Deep Smoothing Serum

d22

Works just as well as a high end serum. smells great, reduces frizz, makes combing easier and makes the hair shinier.

Rs. 255/- for 100ml

2. Dove Elixir

d21

I love the packaging! It smells delightful and does good things to the hair like, add shine, reduce frizz and cure dryness in 30 minutes! It can also be used sparingly as a serum. Retails only for Rs. 185/-

So that is it for my drugstore gems!

The “Would You Rather?” Tag – Beauty Edition!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 12th August 2013

Hello everyone, this tag has been going around in the blogosphere for quite some time now and also on YouTube. I just saw it on http://skinndbeauty.wordpress.com/“” and thought it was so fun to read. So, I thought I should do it too! 😀

So here goes :

1. Would you rather lose all your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks and lip glosses, or lose all of your palettes and eye shadows?

I would much rather lose all of my palettes and eye shadows. I can always create shadow-y looks with eyeliner and there is no way in hell that I am getting out of the house without my mascara and a lip-something ( could be a lip stain, lip tint, lipstick, lip gloss, lip balm ) 😛

2. Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?

I would let it grow. I have always wondered if I never cut my hair, how long will they grow until they stop growing anymore and just fizzle out at the ends! This will be a good way to try! 😉

I don’t think I will ever be able to carry the “bald chick” look!

3. Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?

I prefer coral blushes over pink. I have always felt they look more natural on my skin tone and more believable. I generally prefer coral over pink in lip products as well!

4. If you had Rs. 100000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?

I would rather buy clothes. Since makeup lasts a long time, I don’t mind investing in it. But if I were to shop at the high street with that money, I would be able to buy a lot of trendy pieces and a few classic pieces.

Or maybe I would just buy a fabulous Louis Vuitton Bag! ❤

5. Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner or eyeliner as lipstick?

What? Who could even think of such a question?! :-O

Lipstick on your eyes will make you look ill or dead. Imagine pink / coral / red eyes!

But then eyeliner as lipstick? Maybe I could use a pink eyeliner as lipstick! I will find a way around that one! 😉

6. Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?

Sephora all the way! I would have so much more choice! Mac is all about makeup and skincare. With Sephora I will have other options like fragrance, bath, makeup, skincare etc! Also with Sephora I will have a lot of choice between various brands.

7. Would you rather only use one eye shadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?

Eyes shadow! I generally only wear neutral eye shadows. So, I would find a slightly shimmery beige eye shadow that can be used all over the lid and for highlighting and stick to it! 😀 It would make life easier!

8. Would you rather wear winter clothes in the summer or summer clothes in winter?

This is such a dreadful question. Nobody would want to be too hot or too cold!

I prefer winters over summers! Summer in India feels like our body parts are going to melt off! But maybe in the summers I can wear winter clothes and the air conditioning would make it easier! 😦

9. Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?

Dark nails! I know most people say bright nails but there is just something about deep burgundy / black nails that I find extremely sexy!

10. Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?

There is a dupe for everything in the market. I will be upset giving up my favorite product but I am sure I will find something similar one day. I cannot live without my mascara and lip balm. I think I will find another amazing lip balm but I just cannot give up on my favorite mascara!

11. Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?

Ponytail. There is so much you can do with a ponytail. Low ponytail, high ponytail, side ponytail, braided etc!

12. Would you rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lip gloss?

I am not a lip gloss person. I prefer lip balms over glosses as I have extremely dry lips.

I LOVE painting my nails and I don’t really care for lip gloss that much.

13. Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or Sharpie them in everyday?

What?

Seriously.

What?

I will do anything I can to keep my eyebrows! They are such an important feature of your face. They frame your eyes and you can change your whole look by changing the shape of your eyebrows! I will find a dark brown sharpie and then we will be best friends forever! ❤ ❤

14. Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?

Oooh! As much as I love painting my nails, I would give up nail polish because makeup is a beautiful gift to women! There is so much you can do with makeup and it makes everything look better!

Whereas, you can find multiple ways to make your fingers look pretty like rings, knuckle rings, tattoos etc!

So this is the end of the tag!

I am so glad that we do not actually have to make these choices and can continue doing whatever we love! 😛

Hope you enjoyed! xo!

Maybelline Diamond Glow Eye Shadow Quad in “Copper Brown” Review!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 11th August 2013

What Maybelline claims :

The most glowing diamond effect in 4 simple steps

  • Glow your eyes with diamonds
Image

Maybelline Diamond Glow Eye Shadow “Copper Brown”

Why You’ll Love It

•Glow you eyes with diamonds with the creamiest powder shadow ever launched by Maybelline NY!
•The most glowing diamond effect in 4 simple steps
•Exclusive technology with gem-like sparkles that do not crush

Expert Tip

Apply A on your entire eye lid and inner corner with the bigger sponge.
Blend B on your medium lid with the opposite side of the bigger sponge.
Blend C on lower medium lid with the smaller sponge.
Use D with the opposite side of the smaller sponge to line the lash line.

Image

Maybelline Diamond Glow Eye Shadow “Copper Brown”

My Thoughts :

If you are looking for an easy neutral palette, then this could be your pick. It consists of 4 shades ranging from a creamy shimmery beige to a dark brown.

All the shadows have a pearl/metallic finish. None of them are matte. 

This could be a go to eye shadow quad for college girls and for working women as it has shades that complement each other well and hence this helps to get ready quicker. 

It has 4 shades of copper/brown.

The packaging is sturdy and shuts with a click.

Image

Maybelline Diamond Glow Eye shadow “Copper Brown”

The first shade ( A ) is very shimmery. I like to use it for highlighting the inner corner and under the brow bone. Sometimes I will just wear mascara and highlight using this shade and manage to look fully awake and beautified.

The second shade ( B ) has a pearl finish. Slightly darker skin tones can also use this as a highlight color. It has very fine golden shimmer and looks beautiful under the brow bone and all over the lid.

The third shade ( C ) is my favorite shade in the palette. It is a beautifully pigmented shade of rose gold. I use this all over the lid. 

The fourth shade ( D ) is a dark brown with fine golden shimmer. It is not as pigmented but I like that because it gives a very soft look. I like to use in the outer ‘V’ of my eyes and under the lower lash line to create some depth. 

Image

Maybelline Diamond Glow Eye Shadow “Copper Brown”

Since they are so soft and easy to blend, there is no fallout. However, if you want them to last long, I’d advise using an eye shadow primer underneath.

I like that there is not too much shadow in this quad and I can actually see myself finishing it. ( which is rare with shadows )

Here is how it looks WITHOUT FLASH :

Image

Maybelline Diamond Glow Eye Shadow “Copper Brown”

Here is how it looks with FLASH :

Image

Maybelline Diamond Glow Eye Shadow “Copper Brown”

The GOOD :

1. Great neutral palette.

2. Easy to wear to college/work.

3. Travel friendly.

4. Soft and easy to blend.

5. Decently Pigmented.

The COULD BE BETTER :

1. A tad too expensive.

2. Dark brown shade is not as pigmented as the others. ( I like that but not everyone may like it )

Will I recommend and repurchase?

I don’t think I will have to repurchase this too soon but if I finish this up then I will. I recommend this to anyone who wants a quick look with shiny neutrals and easy touch ups throughout the day! I absolutely LOVE the shade ( A ) for highlighting! ❤

Price – Rs. 450/-

Buy it at any store that sells Maybelline like Shopper’s Stop, Lifestyle, New U etc. Or online here :
