#30DaysMakeupChallenge- Look 1- My signature look!

Hello ladies!

All of September, you’ll see me doing a new makeup look every day under the self imposed #30DaysMakeupChallenge! The inspiration behind this post is some serious scolding from my bestie Sakshi (who has an awesome food blog ‘A Hint Of Yellow’ btw). For the past few weeks, she kept telling me that the looks I was doing on the blog/ social media were quite simple, and mainly just lip products. And like a lazy ass person, I kept saying I wasn’t getting the time. But then one day I decided to put my laziness aside and really do some creative looks here, if not crazy looks. So here we are with this challenge. Thanks Sakshi for the motivation!

Your makeup pet peeve?

Pet peeve- something about which one frequently complaints. 
Personal vexation!

Haha. No, I’m not trying to teach English here, rather the emphasis is, and always will be, on makeup ๐Ÿ˜›

So, the question is- What’s your makeup pet- peeve? Anything that irritates you about makeup? Any particular thing you don’t like doing, or don’t enjoy doing?

My answer- Well, falsies! I really don’t enjoy wearing falsies one bit! Just don’t like them because of the stress behind their application. The whole ‘apply glue (GLUEEEEEE on the eyes)- wait for it to dry- apply close to the lashline with a tweezer’ process freaks me out, and I have never really had the heart to take a tweezer-with-a-falsie-loaded-with-glue close to my eyes. No really, freaks me out totally!

I’ll be honest, I have only tried to wear them twice. The first time I failed miserably, and the second attempt you can see below. It is not perfect, but not bad either.

30-days’ eye makeup challenge: Look #20: Golden smokey eyes

gold smokey eye (2)

Hey everyone!

Haahhh! 20 looks done! Just 10 more to go! Woohoo! To celebrate (kinda ๐Ÿ˜› ), I’ve done a classic golden smokey eye… So I’ve primarily used golden eyeshadows there with a hint of a matte black eyeshadow on the outer corner to create the smoked-out effect..

PS: Again, pics from new camera, so if your computer screen’s brightness is set to ‘high’, you may feel that the pics are too white! I know, I have to work with the camera modes and aperture and shutter speed and ISO :\ I’m determined at learning manual-mode photography.. Till then, please bear with me ๐Ÿ™‚

double winged eyeliner (5)

Hey everyone!

How was Rakshabandhan for you all? I got a new DSLR from my Brother as my gift, and I was so pleasantly surprised…But the best part was the look in Bro’s eyes when he saw me all smiles, and curious and excited while I was ripping open the gift pack! ๐Ÿ˜€

Anyhoo, this was my eye make-up yesterday ๐Ÿ™‚ Didn’t get to use my new camera just yet!

I did a soft pink eye makeup look, with a subtle double winged eyeliner.

30 days’ eye makeup challenge: Look #15

indian bridal eye makeup

Hey everyone!

I’ve painstakingly reached half-way with this challenge, albiet with a lot of factors pulling me down, mostly technical ones. But I’m determined to present to you all (and test myself) 30 eye makeup looks by 3rd September 2013 ๐Ÿ˜€

Look #15 is a classic Indian bridal look, suited/ modified to suit my hooded eyes.. On another note, I could make a gallery of eye makeup inspiration for hooded eyes, it seems ๐Ÿ˜›

My idea of a typical Indian wedding outfit (north-Indian wedding) is a lehengaย with gold, reddish and green colors in it. 99% of the classic wedding attires we see have atleast gold and pink/red in them, thoughย the trend is fast changing. So, anyways, the look here has been done keeping that in mind.
