This summer season its all about minimal sultriness and Deepika Padukone on the cover of Vogue, shows us how. To get her look, try the following steps. Skin: Play up the natural warmth of your skin, not with a bronzer, but with a tinted moisturizer a shade darker than you would normally wear. I LOVE Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15. Skip the blush and instead using a sculptor, define your jawline and cheekbones. I recommend MAKE UP FOR… Read more »

Description: A very baby peach (Sheertone Shimmer) Recommendation: If you are looking for an everyday blush to brighten up your overall look, look no further than MAC Peachykeen Sheertone Shimmer Blush. I have been using this blush for the past year and it has become my absolute must have. When I have no idea what make-up to wear, I often first reach out to my trusted Peachykeen. It is very sheer, but at the same time gives enough punch in… Read more »

The otherwise flawless Katrina Kaif was a major let down in the make-up department recently.  Her eyes are carrying some MAJOR baggage and dark circles. Whatever happened to a thing called concealer?? Someone hand her over a tube of Philosophy Eye Believe Eye Cream& MAC Studio Sculpt Concealerpronto!!

For her wedding reception in Sialkot, Pakistan – Sania Mirza opted for the Celina look. To be fair to her, her make-up wasn’t as horrendous as Ms. Jaitley’s, it was horrible regardless. Pancake make-up – CHECK Horrendous red lipstick – CHECK. Black Smokey eye/ ridiculous eyeliner – CHECK. Someone hand her over a bottle of MAC Fix + pronto – if it weren’t for her acne ridden skin, I’d have thought she is a wax statue. PS:  Is it just… Read more »

CUPCAKE = YUMMM Today, I had the strangest craving for a cupcake – it eventually ended up inspiring the review of the day, which is for Lush’s Cupcake Fresh Face Mask. Because of this silly craving, I had to run to Starbucks to get a Vanilla Buttercream Cupcake, which is all sorts of wrongs (in a good way, of course). Anyways, my blog is not about food – its about make-up, skin care and all things beautiful – so without further delay,… Read more »

Caught by the paparazzi after a work-out, Freida Pinto looked absolutely stunning. She obviously was wearing make-up, so this prompts the question – what make-up is gym appropriate? Personally, I tend to go without make-up because I don’t want the sweat and the combination of make-up to clog my skin. There are, however, many safe ways to wear make-up while sweating it out. Also, the key is to keep everything minimal – just the basics are all you need for the… Read more »

Eyes: Use a shimmery pink color on the lid like MAC Pink Venus eyeshadow. Then line upper lashline and waterline with a black gel liner like MAC Blacktrack Fluidline. Finish off with two coats of mascara. Cheeks: Using a blush brush, contour the apples of your cheeks with a shimmering candy pink blush, like MAC Dollymix. Lips: Line lips using a medium pink liner, especially if you have pigmented lips – it helps show the color. Use Chanel’s Coco Rouge… Read more »

So I have decided that blogging is my guilty pleasure. I am in the middle of exams and presentations but blame my love for blogging and make-up, you may also add the fact that Sephora had a HUGE sale – and boy, did I haul? Oh what a bad run-on. Anyways, I got my hands on my new love – Tarte’s Natural Lip Stain in Charmed, a beautiful baby pink. Much like Benefit’s posie-tint – but SO MUCH MORE hydrating…. Read more »

Posietint What it is: A poppy-tinted lip and cheek stain. What it does: Benefit’s Posietint is a petal-pink stain that plants a kiss of see-through tint on cheeks and lips. With hours of smudge-proof, just-picked perfection, you’ll be the prettiest bloom in the bunch! Why I love it: The color is absolutely gorgeous. I have pigmented lips and find that anything baby-pinkish has no chance of staying on my lips – but this DOES! The color in itself is a… Read more »

OMG OMG OMG I can’t contain my excitement. If you have been following me on twitter, you would know that I had a surprise planned for my readers. Well I promised, so it must be delivered. Let me present to you, the make-up artist extraordinaire, Kapil Bhalla. What is your first memory with make-up? My first makeup memory was of my mother when I was 5 yrs old. She would put on her coral red lipstick and I would be… Read more »

As seen on: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in a recent magazine spread for filmfare. Description: Pure candy pink (sheertone shimmer) Recommendation: If you are of medium to deep skin tone and have a penchant for all things girly, you’ll be all over Dollymix, as I am This color definitely demands attention (in a good way, of course) – so if you wear this, keep the rest of your make up toned down – unless you are going for the Celina look….

As seen on: Read the rest of the break-down for this look here :) Description: Peach with golden shimmer ( frost) Recommendation: If you want a blush that gives you a slightly sun-kissed glow without going the whole bronzer route, you will like Margin. Although the description says peach, do not take it literally. I would read into the “golden shimmer” part more. As you can see on Aishwarya and on my swatch, the golden shimmer/color is more prominent than the… Read more »
