Cleopatra Eye Makeup

Hello Beauties!!
Today I tried a very ancient eye look of Cleopatra. So here is a little information about Cleopatra -
Who was she : The last queen of Egypt, Cleopatra, was Queen of Nile. She was regarded as a great beauty even in the ancient world, used her charms to influence the most powerful men in the western world.
Her makeup : The queen of the Nile's ornate eye makeup made her a legend. Once she had her protective kohl, she might then decide to use red ochre on her lips or dab her wrist with perfume.

Workplace Makeup

In the workplace things should be professional—in your dress, in your conduct, in your relationship with your coworkers, and in your cosmetic presentation. Professional means more toned down and more understated.

Here is the complete list of 7 habits that can help you stop the entry of wrinkles, crow's feet, fine lines and bags from under your eyes.

1. Massage your eyes every night using ring finger to apply eye cream which contains Vitamin E & C.
2. Large frame sunglasses may look sexy but it's also a smart way of protecting your eyes, especially, if they're labelled "UV 400".
3. Use eye serums and water-based gels that contain active ingredients like retinoid, pigment reducing extracts of glycolic acid  and arbutin.

Nina Dobrev Braided Updo

Hello Galz!
I know I haven't posted any hairstyle for a long time. But today I tried a romantic hairstyle which is inspired by Nina Dobrev braided updo.
Okay I'll not take much time talking about her beauty so here is the step by step process -
1) Part your hairs from one side, could be any side of your choice.

 2) Take a small bunch of hairs just before the parting of hair and make a simple braid with that bunch of hairs.
 3) Pin up the end of braid behind the ear so that the bobby pin can be hide.
 4) Now gather all the hairs back and make a medium or low ponytail.
 5) Now scrunch and back comb the every section of hairs in ponytail so that a puffy look or volume can come.
 6) Now twist the ponytail very little and loosely wrap around the hair band. Secure any loose ends with bobby pins.
 You can clearly see the puffiness in my bun. You can make a high or medium bun according to your choice.
Do you like the hairstyle? Follow if you like my work. :)

Hello Galz!
These are the design which I applied just for fun. No occasion but tried it. But the mehndi cone I used was new and when I started squeezing it I found it very hard to press it. May be the Mehndi cone was defective. It happens with me first time that's why I couldn't apply the design finely.
First design -

My Weekend Shopping

Hello Everyone!
I just wanna share my shopping stuff from BIBA. These are the Kurtis I bought from BIBA. This was the first time I shopped Kurti because I usually wear jeans top and suits. I had previous experience with BIBA, it's a great brand for any Indian gal. I toh just love the suits and Kurti there. 
So here is my first Kurti in blue and red prints which is my hubby's first choice. Me too like this soft and silky Kurti.
Price : 899 /- INR. 

 This is my second Kurti which has colorful dots on black background.
Price : 699/- INR.
 I purchased it because of its neck design.
 My very pretty and simple Kurti is in last number but I like it most. It's in blue shade with small dark blue prints and red lining. This Kurti feels soft when touched and very very light.
Price : 599/- INR.

So did you like BIBA Kurtis? Have you tried their suits and Kurtis?

Oriflame Essentials Face Mask Review

Hello Galz!!
Yesterday I become an Oriflame Consultant Member and bought few Kurtis from BIBA. I'm loving all the stuff I got except one thing, Oriflame Essentials Face Mask.
Just because of a small confusion I am not liking this face mask. On catalogue I can only see the front of face mask pack where " all skin types" written so I decided to try it and bought it home. But when I turned it and read what's written in back side is "for dry skin". And I am one of the oilies so it was a big no for me but I applied it on my sister's face and what she has experienced is describe here.

What it claims : Essential face mask brings nourishment and intensive moisturization. Use it whenever your skin looks dull and lacks moisture. Take 10 minutes and feel lavishly soft and gorgeously nourished.
It contains cotton seed oil and vitamin E for extra moisture.

How to use : Apply on cleansed face and neck. Leave for 10 minutes and rinse off with water.

My elder sis with mask.. :)

Price : INR 59/- for 12 ml (for 2 sachets).

Pros :
  • Skin feels completely moisturized.
  • Cleanses face well.
  • Good for dry skin.
  • Cheap, 59/- for two.
  • One sachet is enough for one time mask for face and neck.

Cons :
  • Difficult to wash it off.
  • Bad option for oily skin.
  • It is not a mask. It's a thick cream which doesn't dry out after 10 or 15 minutes, just get absorbed a bit into skin.

Rating : For dry skin - 3 / 5 & For oily skin - 1 / 5

I'll not recommend it but if dry skin beauties wanna try it for just experiment you can buy it but completely no-no for oily skin beauties.

Have you tried this face mask?

Makeup Tip : How To Get Straight Eyelashes To Curl?

If you have straight eyelashes and want to curl it and wish to hold that curl all day long then this Makeup tip is definitely for you. :)

Buy both waterproof and curling mascara which contains more wax than oil in them which helps to preserve the hold they have on your lashes , as well as their ability to hold a curl.
Using blow dryer and heating your lash curler a bit also a way to keep curl for long but I avoid it because it has chances to damage lashes.
Just make sure to apply mascara just after curling, which will help hold the shape.

If you're on budget, Maybelline New York's Full & Soft Mascara in the waterproof formula lengthens, thickens and will hold all day.

Plz comment and tell me whether you like it or not ?

Blue And Pink Eye Look

Hello Butterflies!!
Today I am gonna show you a bold and bright eye makeup which is kinda inspired by Kelly Rowland's eye makeup. 

Beautiful Kelly Rowland was wearing this eye makeup when she hosted a launch party for her recently released album entitled Here I am.

I just twisted the look in my way and here is what I done -

1) Prepare the eye lid with primer and apply loose powder. Then apply a thick black eye liner on upper lash line, here I used MAC black eye pencil.

 2) Use bright shimmery and dark blue shade on whole eye lid.
3) Also apply dark blue eye shadow on lower lash line and use pink eye shadow on crease and above the crease. Then blend both the colors with eye brush.
 4) Apply kajal or gel eye liner on water line with loads of mascara.
5) Define brow with eyebrow brush and use same color of eye shadow if needed. If you want you can also use thick or thin eyeliner.

Makeup Tip : Get Bambi Eyelashes Without Mascara

Hello beauties!
Sorry for not posting in the morning :(  I was in Chitrakoot in M.P. Visited so many temples and had fun. :)

Today's super Sunday makeup tip is How to get Bambi eyelashes without mascara?
Image source : Google

You don't need mascara to make your eye lashes stand out. YES. Just add eyeliner.
To get voluminous looking lashes, apply dark brown or black waterproof eyeliner to the upper rim of your eye -- not on top of the lashes, but in between and underneath them. This gives the illusion of thicker and fuller eye lashes without having a lined eye.

Hope you'll find it helpful. :)
