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.

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.

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.

L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Le Vernis Nail Polish ( For Cannes 2013 ) Shade numbers 822, 821

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Friday, 9th August 2013

What L’Oreal claims :

The Ultimate Glamour : Luxuriously intense rich color for the nails with a long lasting diamond shine.

Limited edition colors brings you the dazzling glamour of Festival De Cannes.

Image
L-R ( 822 Bronze Parure, 821 Copper Cuff )

My Thoughts :

These nail polishes are a limited edition collection by L’Oreal for the Cannes Festival.

The packaging is sleek and classy and is reminiscent of YSL. As with most L’Oreal products.

Image

These are beautiful glitter nail polishes that give complete opaqueness in 2 coats. That is great for a glitter nail polish.

822 ( Bronze Parure ) has purpley grey silver glitter with gold flecks on a clear base.

821 ( Copper Cuff ) has copper colored glitter with gold flecks on a clear base.

Both of them are densely packed with glitter.

There are 6 shades available in this range including a gold glitter in black base that I am eyeing.

They also dry pretty quickly which is always a bonus.

Another thing that I love about this is the applicator. It is almost flat spatula-like and coats the nails perfectly.

Image

Here is how it looks on the nails after two coats.

Without Flash

Image

The GOOD :

1. Densely packed with glitter.

2. Dries quickly.

3. Great applicator.

The COULD BE BETTER :

1. I really hope they make it into the permanent collection.

2. Some shops may not carry all the shades.

Will I recommend and repurchase?

This will last me for quite some time so I don’t have to repurchase them but I do recommend picking the up when you see them because they are limited edition.

Buy them for Rs. 235 each for 5 ml at any store that carries L’Oreal. Or online here:
