Hello ladies!

So while researching for makeup looks for this series, I came across this fun post with various interesting looks to create for this challenge, and I’ve decided to stick to it, but not in any order. I’ve already done some of these looks, and here’s the 5th look in this series..

#30DaysMakeupChallenge Look-4: Smokey eyes, n*de lips

Hello ladies!

Today I’m sharing one of my most favorite looks, something I’d wear to a special occassion without thinking twice. I love smokey eyes, and more so the really dark ones where all the focus is around the upper lashline (more than outer corner, coz I have hooded eyes). Such looks go really well with a n*de lip, and you always get a few compliments too!

#30DaysMakeupChallenge: Look 2: Glitter lips

Hello ladies!

Continuing the #30DaysMakeupChallenge, today’s look is just an extension of yesterday’s look, albiet with the hottest makeup trend at the moment- glitter lips!

#30DaysMakeupChallenge Look-2: Glitter Lips

Glitter lips are the hottest makeup trend for this season. A few days back, British MUA Pat McGrath launched her range of glitter lip kits *drool* and the beauty world went crazy! Then I saw my favorite YouTuber Tati from GlamLifeGuru do a video with these products, and I officially lost it! Just had to give this trend a try!

With the festive season also coming up, if you want to up your glam quotient without much of an effort (hello, no blending!), you should totally give this trend a try. Most of us makeup crazies have some pigment or glitter lying around in our stash anyway. Go ahead, pick them up and create a DIY glitter lip look in an instant.

#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!

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 😀

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.

30-days’ eye makeup challenge: Look #12: Gold and taupe

Hey everyone!

Sorry for such a late post today, my Blog got hacked I guess… Took a lot of time to recover things here… Anyways, the eye makeup look I’m posting about in this post isn’t something I’ve done today. I did it a few days back, but all the blog-backup and stuff didn’t leave me with any time and energy today, so I’m cheating a bit here.

I wore this multi-color traditional outfit to a wedding recently.. By multi-color, I mean- it has green, magenta, gold, yellow, black… this was a first for me, since I normally like to wear not more than 2 or 3 colors in my outfits, even the traditional ones… So I kept my eye makeup fairly simple- some gold on the entire lid and a brownish-taupe on the crease and outer corner… Have a look:
