FOTD: Sparkle Naturally!

Hello My Lovelies!

It’s “face of the day” time!

For this look I wanted to go for an understated almost whimsical / coachella-ish natural makeup look. So, that’s exactly what I ended up doing!

~This is the complete LOOK~

 ~On My Face~IMG_4486

Since. I have dry skin I first moisturized my face with a moisturizer.

1. Maybelline New York Dream Lumi Touch Concealer ~ After I had moisturized my face, I applied this concealer under my eyes, on the bridge of my nose, on the top of my forehead and on my chin to conceal and highlight because this is a highlighting concealer.

I know some people like to apply concealer after they have done their foundation, but this is the way that works for me.

2. Maybelline New York Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation ~ Next, I apply foundation all over my face and neck. It’s really important to apply foundation on your neck, otherwise the skin tone of your face wouldn’t match the skin tone of your neck, making your skin tone looking uneven.

3. Chambor Silver Shadow Compact ~ Then, I set my foundation by dusting this compact powder all over my face and neck.

Next, I applied Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush in Fresh Coral all over the apples of my cheek.

~On My Eyes~

IMG_4505

1. Urban Decay Primer Potion in ‘Original’ ~ I started my eye makeup by first priming my eyes with the Urban Decay Primer Potion. I applied this primer all over my eyelid. This primer would help prevent creasing of the eye shadow.

2. Lakme Eyeconic (Brown) ~ I lined my lower lash line with this brown kajal to define my eyes

3. Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette ~ I used the shade “Limit” all over my eyelid, next I used the shade “Nooner” on the outer 1/3rd of my eye. I then applied the shade “Factory” on the crease of my eye and I also used this shade on my lower lash line.

4. Lakme Shine Line Eye Liner ~ Next, I lined my upper lash line with this black liquid liner.

5. Maybelline Falsies Mascara ~ I finished my eye makeup by applying two coats of mascara on my upper and lower lashes.

*After I had done my makeup, I spritzed my face with the Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray to set my makeup.*

What to wear on a… First Date?

Hello My Lovelies! “First Date” ~  two really daunting words which have the power to wreck havoc and create chaos in the minds and wardrobes of women all over the world.

~When you are getting ready for your date the following thoughts come to mind and really f**k up with your mental peace…~

“What am I gonna wear?”

“Oh my god! I have nothing to wear!”

“I need to go shopping?”

“Is this look too slutty?”

“Am I looking to plain?”

“Does this dress make me look.. FAT?!”

If you are plagued by these thoughts, then don’t worry! You’re not alone. We’ve all been there!

I remember when I had to go on a first date with my boyfriend, I had emptied out my whole closet, called my best friend frantically in the middle of freak out, declaring that I don’t know what I am going to wear! In the end I did settle on my first date outfit and had a really awesome time on the date.

How to dress for a first date?

The following are some things that you should keep in mind when you’re getting ready for your date :-

1. Be Comfortable

IMG_3863

One of the most essential aspects of looking good for your first date is being comfortable in what you’re wearing. Trust me there is nothing worse than wearing a nice outfit but fidgeting throughout the date with the hemline, neckline etc.

If you’re a jeans and top girl, then wear that! Probably a slightly more updated jeans and top version than what you usually wear, but wear whatever makes you comfortable.

Because, the thing with being uncomfortable is, more often than not, it shows! So, relax and stop trying to wear that bodycon dress which you know would make you want to tug the dress near the stomach area because you’re too afraid that your stomach might be pooching out!

2. Avoid Wearing High Heels

IMG_3797-001

I know, I know look who is talking! The girl who practically lives in her high heels! But, hear me out! High Heels are sexy and make you look tall and give you an added boost of confidence but, at the same time they can take some getting used to and can also sometimes limit your level of movement.

I remember the time when I had just started wearing high heels and I used to get so nervous trying to walk around an uneven surface, a flight of stairs, wet floors etc. My attention would solely be focused on not trying to fall flat on my butt! And it took a lot out of me back then. My feet would hurt, I would be nervous about tripping and I would constantly be looking for seats where I could sit and not have to be on my toes a lot.

So, what I am saying is… give the high heels a miss, at least for the first date. But, if you think you can handle wearing them then I wish you best.

3. Makeup

IMG_2110-001

If you don’t usually wear makeup then don’t cake yourself up with makeup just for the sake of the date. What you can do is probably wear some kajal and a lip gloss/lip balm to look more date-y. The idea behind doing your makeup is not to look like you’re going to some shaadi (wedding), It is to play up on your natural assets and enhance the same with the help of makeup.

IMG_1888-001

Focus on that one feature on your face that you want to emphasize. Example: Between your eyes and your lips… focus on either one of them but not both together. Like, you could sport a smokey eye with a nude lip or a bold lip with kohl/mascara rimmed eyes!

4. Stick to what you know

I can’t stress this enough but stick to the thing that you know how to do, when you’re getting ready for your date. There is no point trying some new smokey eye technique, heat-less hair curling method, DIY face packs, contouring-highlighting techniques etc. Your first date is not the time to do all that. Chances are the end results might be an experiment gone wrong! Stick to what you know and can do. Like a winged eye look, or a hair bun, or just straightening your hair.

5. Dress for the occasion

It’s really important to dress for the occasion. Depending upon where you’re going or what you’re doing on your first date, you can plan your outfit so that you don’t over or under dress.

Example: For a movie date you don’t need to be a total glam doll, you can keep it casual in a nice pair of jeans with a cute top.

~The following are three look that would be perfect for your first date~

LOOK 1.

PicsArt_1433928294645

(From left to right ~ Dress, bag, shoes)

For this look, pair this black sheer embroidered dress with metallic platform bluchers and throw on a metallic messenger chain strap bag to complete this look.

This look is really hot and the metallic accents in the look really make the outfit standout! The look is perfect for a restaurant or a movie date.

LOOK 2.

PicsArt_1433927985442

(From left to right ~ Skirt, Top, Sandals)

This second look is really feminine and flirty! For this look pair this metallic pleated skirt with this floral lace crop top. Complete the look by pairing it with metallic faux leather slingback sandals.

This outfit is perfect for a day date!

LOOK 3.

PicsArt_1433928114210

(From left to right ~ Pants, Top, Wedges)

This last look is edgier than the rest of the looks. For this look pair these gorgeous stretch woven pants with a fringe faux suede top, then throw on these printed wedges to complete this edgy look!

FINAL THOUGHTS!

This whole article is about how YOU can feel more confident when you are on a date. You don’t have to conform to some given standards of what is “pretty” or what is “in” to have a nice first date.The right person will still think that the sun shines out of your a**  irrespective of what you wear.

The most important thing is to be true to who you are and just be yourself when you are out on your date. Your date is equally nervous as you are. So, just relax and have a great time!

Well that’s it for now!

OOTD: Hello Summer!

IMG_4276

Hello My Lovelies!

Summer is here! And boy is it hot out there! I know that because for the past 1 month I was commuting to and fro in this hot as hell weather from my home to the examination center and back again!

Speaking of examination center, I just completed my final exams for this semester! Woohoo! Although it doesn’t really feel “woohoo”. In real sense it feels more like, “Yeah done. Now can I please just go curl up on my bed and eat, sleep, watch tv, read romance novels and just go back to being a normal procrastinator again?!”

IMG_4296

IMG_4288-001 IMG_4274

Anywho, with the exams and the heat, I just needed a little pick-me-up to keep my spirits high to momentarily distract myself from everything that was going around me.

It all started with this hat (pictured in the photos) that my mother had bought one day. I really liked the hat and I wanted to do a whole look around it.

IMG_4278-001

IMG_4291

So for this look, I paired this gorgeous floral print skirt with this cute white crop top, then I wore my white gladiator wedges to match my white crop top. I then completed this look by throwing on this hat (that I have been wearing non-stop lately) to complete this look.

IMG_4301-001

Something really weird happened when we were shooting this look. We were shooting this look at my place and while we were shooting, mid-shoot I realized that some guy from my neighbors balcony had his phone out and was looking directly at me.

IMG_4290

(Oh-hey! Is that person trying to click my picture from his balcony?!)

IMG_4297

(Yeah Buddy, I see you clicking my picture. Mood = Pissed!)

I tried to ignore it at first, but then I realized that he was trying to click my picture from his cell phone! GASP! I was so pissed! Fortunately my mum saw that guy taking the pictures and made a big hue and cry! Long story short, the guy was yelled at so bad by my Angry Mother!

IMG_4285

(How to deal with unwanted attention/random guy trying to click your pic? Send an angry Punjabi Mother to deal with said guy!)

IMG_4302

Okay, enough talk about random peeping toms! Here’s a closer shot of makeup. I tried to keep my main focus on my cheeks and lips. I decided to go for really peach-y/pink looking cheeks and a bright pink lip (Mac Impassioned lipstick).

I hope you liked this look! :)

How to Dress Like Jess from New Girl?

Dress Like Jess!

Hello My Lovelies!

As you might have guessed from the the title, this post is about how you can dress like Jess Day from the TV show New Girl!

New Girl is a show which follows the live of Jess (played by the lovely Zooey Deschanel) a 20 something girl, who after a bad breakup with her boyfriend, ends up living in an apartment with 4 (earlier 3) male roommates after answering a “roommate wanted” ad on Craigslist!

The show follows Jess’ hilarious adventures of being the “New Girl” in an apartment full of men! It’s a funny show, with an equally lovable cast (Schmidt and Cece! Coach and Winston! and Nick! Come on these guys are so cute!)

Jess Day’s Style Diary

PicsArt_1433778466243

1. Bright Colors Are Your Friends!

Jess has a very peppy almost 1950’s inspired wardrobe filled with bright, happy, in-your-face colors (reds, blues, greens, yellows… you name it and the girl has got it)! So, if you wanna dress like Jess then you really need to stop shying away from bright colors! :)

2. Be a Pattern Lover / Embracer

Apart from being a girl who loves wearing bright colors, Jess has a penchant for sporting patterns! Stripes, Polka dots the girl has almost tried them all!

3. Cardigan and Ballet Flats are your Bae!

Jess LOVES wearing cardigans and ballet flats! She loves pairing cardigans with dresses and skirts. Same is her love affair with her ballet flats. I think Jess has Cardigans and Ballet Flats in almost every color imaginable!

PicsArt_1433778528758

4. Nerdy McPretty!

Jess is always seen rocking her cute, nerdy, adorkable pair of glasses with almost all of her looks on the show. If you wanna really nail Jess’s look then go rock a pair of faux glasses.

5. Retro Much

Yeah Jess, kinda has a knack for incorporating a healthy dose of retro vibes in her outfit, be it the bright colors, the bows, the polka dots, the belts, the hairbands! The girl has RETRO written all over her! Example: You can pair shorter fluffier skirt with ballet flats and a cute top + cardigan, or a nice pair of fitted high waist jeans with a feminine top, completed with a headband

7. Tights / Leggings

Another thing Jess loves to do is layer her clothes! She is often times seen rocking a dress with a pair of tights or a pair of shorts over a pair of stockings! Don’t be afraid to layer!

~Looks Inspired By Jess Day~

LOOK 1.

Jess Day Outfit Inspiration 1

(From left to right : Dress, Cardigan, Shoes)

For this look pair this bright print dress with a blue/mint color cardigan for an added wow factor and as a cool way to color block with your outfit. Jess is often seen rocking her dresses with cardigans, and her cardigans are often times bold and bright in color. Complete this look by throwing on these comfy white ballet flats to complete the look.

LOOK 2.

PicsArt_1433777219017

(From left to right: Dress, Shoes, Bow Barrette)

While Jess is often seen rocking bright, bold colors, the few times that she has rocked something neutral, she’s done it well! To channel Jess’s “NEUTRAL” look wear this gorgeous white dress with a Peter Pan collar with these black and white peep toe flats. Complete the look by wearing a bow barrette in your hair!

LOOK 3.

Jess Day Inspired Outfit 3

(From left to right : Cardigan,Top, Skirt)

As previously mentioned, Jess loves polka dots and she also loves cardigans! This look is a nod to just that! Pair a white feminine blouse with a polka dot skirt. To really get a “Jess vibe” in your look throw on a red cardigan to complete this look!

Well that’s it for now!

Mac Heroine Review + Lip Swatch!

IMG_4136-001

Hello My Lovelies!

How have you all been? I am currently experiencing the full effects of an Indian summer, and boy it’s hot here! As a result I have been craving ice lollies like crazy these past few days. Anyhoo! enough with the weather talk and on with the review :)

IMG_4224

The lipstick of the moment is Mac’s Heroine! You know every time I hear this lipstick’s name, The song from Kareena Kapoor’s movie “Heroine” (you can listen to it hereMain Heeeeroine hooooon (I am a heroine) starts playing in my head! Wouldn’t it be crazy/awesome if Mac lipsticks introduced themselves that way? Cue.. Main Ruby Woo hoooon, Main All Fired Up hoooon (no pun intended, okay, yeah intended :P)

But, I digress. Where was I? Yes, Mac’s Heroine. Below I’ve taken some photos of when I had the lipstick on.

IMG_4135-001 IMG_4139-001

(What am I thinking in the above photo? ~ Dude! These flowers are so fake! They’re Faux Flowers!)

IMG_4174-001

(Poked myself in the eye with the aforementioned “Faux Flowers”!)

IMG_4172-001IMG_4152-001

MAC HEROINE

1. Color

Mac Heroine is a bright violet/purple lipstick, on some it might even look like a red toned purple.

2. Finish

Heroine has “matte” written in the sticker below the lipstick tube, but really what it has is a creamy matte finish. It glides on effortlessly on the lips.

3. Coverage

It has a completely opaque color coverage. One swipe and the lipstick goes completely opaque. I usually swipe twice due to force of habit, but one swipe and the true color of the lipstick gets delivered on the lips.

4. Stay

On me the lipstick stays a good 5-6 hours before it starts to fade into a lovely red-ish purple-ish stain. The lipstick is neither drying nor hydrating.

5. Cost

It costs Rs. 1450 in India.

IMG_4241

THE GOOD

1. The lipstick glides on effortlessly on the lips.

2. It looks good when applied straight out of the tube as it is on the lips, but I also love wearing it as a stain, i.e. I apply the lipstick and then blot it down with a tissue to control the intensity of the color.

THE NOT SO-GOOD

1. When I applied this lipstick, I realized that it has a tendency to stick to dry/flaky patch on my lips. So, it’s really important to exfoliate your lips before you wear this lipstick.

IMG_4179-001

Well that’s it for now! Namaste!

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks ~ BLACKBERRY & BLACK CHERRY REVIEW + LIP SWATCH!

IMG_4198-004

Hello My Lovelies!

Today I am going to be reviewing two lipsticks from Revlon that I have been obsessed with for the past 2 months! Seriously, I have been wearing these lipsticks almost non-stop!

The lipsticks in question are Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipsticks in “Blackberry” and “Black Cherry”.

IMG_4207-001

(Pictured above from the left: Blackberry & Black Cherry)

I had heard a lot about these lipsticks before I bought them, but whenever I tried searching for reviews or swatches of these two lipstick together online… my search always came up short! So, when I finally tried and tested these lipsticks, I thought I really should review these two lipsticks together!

BLACKBERRY

IMG_4198-002

IMG_4058-001IMG_4076-001IMG_4079-001IMG_4081-001IMG_4093

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in “Blackberry” is a brick red lipstick with brown undertones. I have never really been a fan of brick red lipsticks, but this lipstick won me over! This lipstick is so soft, pigmented and it goes opaque in one swipe!

This lipstick is completely frost and shimmer free. I sometimes wear it straight out of the tube as it is, and other times I like to blot the lipstick down with a tissue to get a more muted-natural look.

This lipstick lasts a good 4-5 hours on me, after that it does have a tendency to bleed a little, but even then it look nice!

My Rating ~ 4.5/5

BLACK CHERRY

IMG_4198-003

IMG_4094-001 IMG_4096-001 IMG_4101-001 IMG_4104-001 IMG_4116-002

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in “Black Cherry” is a lipstick that makes you go “OH MY GOD” the moment you apply it. I know It looks really dark in the tube, but when you apply this to your lips the color you get is a dark red with purple undertones.

But, when I am not in the mood for sporting a dark bold lip, what I really love to do with this lipstick is to apply it and then blot it down, it leaves a gorgeous flushed, plum-ish stain on the lips!

This lipstick has no shimmer, and last for 4-5 hours. It’s a gorgeous lipstick that has quickly become one of my must-have lipstick!

My Rating ~ 4.75/5

IMG_4213-002

Both these lipsticks retail for Rs.550 each and I love them both! And yes, I purchased them with my own money and my opinions are as usual completely honest!

Well, that’s it for now!

Who are you dressing for?

IMG_3904-001

“Who are you dressing for?” ~ 5 years ago I first asked this question to myself and 5 years later even today from time to time I ask this question to myself.

Are we dressing for our boyfriends, girlfriends, our jobs, our family members, are we dressing to impress our crush, or are we simply getting dressed to “fit in”… to belong with a set of people?

What we really should be doing is to dress for our self, for the real “YOU”.

I know with dress codes, uniforms and office policies it is not feasible for all of you to dress for yourself everyday, but when you do get a chance.. you do YOU, dress in the manner which is inanely and completely you!

And for those of you who do have the luxury to wear whatever you damn well please… What’s stopping you? Whose voice is dictating YOUR style everyday?

I’ll tell you whose voice it should be.. ONLY YOURS!

IMG_3898-001

IMG_3906-001

IMG_3902-001

IMG_3901-002

IMG_3905-002

With the rise of social media, it is easy to fall in and “dress for an audience” to get a “like”, a “comment”, a “retweet”, a “follow”.

But, trust me the secret to great style is to feel good in what you wear.

Believe me, I know.. I have always loved wearing high heels! But, for a long time I didn’t wear them and just kept them in my closet for the sheer reason because I was afraid what people might say if I wore them out in public.

But you know what I realized? That people always talk! If I stop doing thing that make me happy just ’cause log kya kahenge (what would people say) then I wouldn’t be able to get anything done.

Today, I wear my high heels proudly! Yes, people do look, they do talk.. but who cares? YOLO (You only live once)!

So, wear things which make you happy! You might get stink eye from some people, murmured whispers and not-at-all-subtle check out from the others. But you know what? That’s okay! It happens! No f***s given to them :)

Now go out there and BE YOU!
