Color Me Pretty- A Vibrant and Colorful Look

Hi Everyone!

This is your long lost makeup buddy and I am not going to give any explanation as to why am I back after almost an year. I mean, what explanation could suffice? So without further adieu, I will present to you my latest creation. This look was created on a whim. I had nothing planned or had no inspiration whatsoever! But, I love how something that had zero planning behind it turned out so pretty. *Smiles*

Let me share a secret with you- Makeup gives me the joy that nothing in this world can but what satisfies me more than that is the validation and approval of my followers. So, with folded hands I ask for everyone’s forgiveness for being MIA and I hope that I can create the same place in your hearts which I had before.

Here is the tutorial:

Love,

My Foundation Routine

Hey y’all!

Finally I am posting a video that I had recorded almost a month back but never got the time to upload it. While I was preparing to film my last video (see here) I decided to also film my foundation application. This is how I wear foundation on a regular basis, if not everyday. I look weird because there is no other makeup on my face in this video so please don’t get scared. Lol.

I hope you find this tutorial easy because I don’t really use too many techniques or products. It is a very simple and basic routine.

Here is the video :

Tangerine and Teal Eyes

Hello Lovelies,

Here is another look I did yesterday. I am sure it is not hard to figure out that I love bright and colorful looks. A lot of you may feel that these looks are not wearable or you may not be able to carry it off personally and I totally understand that. I promise all of you that I will be very soon doing a series of neutral/wearable looks.

For now, I would like you all to see this tutorial and would love for you to give me feedback on how you like it.

Vibrant Purple Green Eyes

Hello my lovely followers!

I have been extremely lazy in updating my blog posts lately but trust me the guilt of it eats me everyday! So, today I finally decided to update it. Although, most of my followers who know about my Youtube channel and facebook page are aware of my latest whereabouts and makeup looks but I apologize to all my followers on wordpress who were not able to get any updates because of my laziness. I promise not to vanish like this again.

So, recently I did this very bright Purple Green Eyes with purple lips and got rave reviews from everyone. It was sort of my comeback tutorial because I had been MIA for a long long time. I had a great time doing this tutorial and love the bright colors I used to create it. I hope you all like this look!

Tutorial – Green Black Smokey Eyes

Hello my lovely people!

I am back with another tutorial and this time I just went bonkers! Haha! I did a really dramatic black green smokey eye with very soft lilac lips. My idea behind creating this look was that the green shade should reflect from behind the black. I don’t know if I was able to achieve the same but I am happy with the end result. So, I hope you like what I have tried to create here.

Hello my lovely people!

I missed you all so much! As I mentioned in my last post that I have not been totally out of action. I do post looks on my facbook page and I am proud that my skill is  improving with every look and that is why I just couldn’t resist making a video today. So here I am with a new tutorial video and I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed doing it!

Purple Gold Smoke- A look using make-up products available in India

Hello My Lovelies!

First of all, I just want to express my excitement on winning the make-up contest kept by Lauren Luke. I know I have already published a post about it but seriously I just can’t get over it! I still can’t believe I actually won the first prize! I still can’t believe that she liked my look the best! Honestly, it has given a much awaited boost to my confidence that I am on the right path and I might make a name for myself in this field. This helps me believe in myself more and more!

But, everything aside the only thing in this life (obviously apart from my husband and my baby Fudge) that gives me ultimate happiness is Make-up!

Alright, enough of emotional stuff! Let’s get down to business. So, the look that I have done today is a much requested look. I have a lot followers from India and they always complain that they are not able to figure out what product to use because the ones I use in my tutorials are not available in India! So, I figured that I should do a tutorial using products from India.

Here is the tutorial video….

Sweet and Sexy Valentine’s Day look

Hello to all my lovely people!

I am so happy to be back where I belong, which is here blogging and doing makeup tutorials! Unexpectedly, it was very long break but now I am back with lots of energy and plans for my blog. Hopefully, everything turns out the way I have planned 🙂

The Valentine’s Day is around the corner and everyone seem to be putting out their version of a Valentine’s Day look. So, I thought why not me?

About the look:

For me Valentine’s day date look should be a smooth blend of sensuality and sweetness and that is why this name 🙂

Here is the tutorial of the look that I would wear for a romantic date with my husband.

Holiday Party Look-2

Hey Hey!

As I promised, I am back with another holiday look and this time I went a little dramatic! Ha! I am sure by now all of you have understood that I love dramatic makeup. I have to really push myself to do a simple look and I feel I still have to do a look that is truly simple!

Anyway, I decided to do this look because it is the trend this fall/winter ‘Smokey Eyes with Red Lips’. This is a perfect look for a night out or maybe a christmas party in a nightclub. You can decide for yourself!

As always I would love to hear how you liked this look. Please comment or subscribe!
