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!
#30DaysMakeupChallenge- Look 1: My signature makeup look
Today I’m going to review an eyeshadow primer after a very long time on the Blog. Have been using the Faces Metaliglow eye primer for some time now, and here’s how I like it and use it (more than one uses it has 😉 ). Read on to know more 🙂
Pet peeve- something about which one frequently complaints.
Haha. No, I’m not trying to teach English here, rather the emphasis is, and always will be, on makeup 😛
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.
*Review by Arshi S. on behalf of The Indian Beauty Blog
This is my very first review on The Indian Beauty Blog and I want to thank Ritu for giving me this opportunity.
Today I will be reviewing the Elle-18 Color Pop Eyeliner- Green from Elle 18’s newly launched range of products. In addition to the classic black eyeliner, three more colors in the same range have been launched – blue, brown and grey.
Today I’m reviewing the Clinique Chubby Stick shadow tint for eyes- Pink & Plenty. These were launched only recently. This product is basically an eyeshadow in a stick form, but it serves some other purposes too! Read on!
Haahhh! 20 looks done! Just 10 more to go! Woohoo! To celebrate (kinda 😛 ), 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 🙂
Here’s presenting look #19 this month… I’m so elated for the fact that this challenge is in it’s second half now! I’ve done a subtle green look here. Goes well for any time of the day, and any occassion too 😉
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! 😀
Anyhoo, this was my eye make-up yesterday 🙂 Didn’t get to use my new camera just yet!
I did a soft pink eye makeup look, with a subtle double winged eyeliner.
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 😀
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 😛
My idea of a typical Indian wedding outfit (north-Indian wedding) is a lehenga with gold, reddish and green colors in it. 99% of the classic wedding attires we see have atleast gold and pink/red in them, though the trend is fast changing. So, anyways, the look here has been done keeping that in mind.
Look #14 for the 30-days’ eye makeup challenge is a simple graphic eyeliner or block eyeliner look. A runway favorite these days, this is a very simple look to do and does not require much expertise. Plus, it is wearable too!
