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 :


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.

Here is the tutorial:

Tutorial: Black Brown Smokey Eyes

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….

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.

Operation: Makeover ;)

Hey Everyone!!

Last week my sister and I were just hanging at home and I was showing her all the new makeup products I had bought. Suddenly, it struck my mind that why not do a makeover video! I asked my sister if she would volunteer and she loved the idea. I was extremely excited but we didn’t have much time left to tape so we scheduled it for the next weekend. So finally came the next weekend and I decided to do a sparkly, glittery look on her. Soft pink glitter with black smokey eyes was the perfect choice to make my pretty sister look like a sexy siren!

I had a lot of fun doing this makeover and the icing on the cake was that my sister and her husband loved her transformation!

In the video, I have mentioned the products I used, in case anyone wants to try this look out.

Here is the video:

I really hope that you like this video and my attempt at doing a makeover.

*Glamorous Metallic Party Look*

Hey you beautiful people!

Saturday is my favorite day for two reasons – It’s my chance to get all dolled up and then I partaayyy! It doesn’t matter if it’s a nightclub or a lounge, a local bar or a bowling alley, I just love to get all decked up and enjoy the night. So, I decided to do a look that is very glamorous and absolutely perfect for a night out in town.

About the look:

This look consists of bright gold, brown and copper colors and that is what makes it so versatile. This look can be worn with a hot party dress as well as with a beautiful Indian outfit.

I have used Profusion Pro 88 Eyeshadow Palette to create this look. This palette can be bought at ULTA stores or online at

I used Buxom lip gloss ‘Isabella’ on my lips but you could also use a dark-colored lip shade to make it even more glamorous 😉

I hope you all enjoy this look as much as I did creating it.

Here is tutorial video
