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:

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!

I am still here…

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….

*Birthday Post*

Hey Everyone!

I just wanted to say a quick Hi to everyone and post a few pictures from my birthday which was on February 13th. This birthday was unlike any I have celebrated till date because usually it is party time for me and my loved ones on my birthday but this time it was a quiet romantic dinner with my husband at MY favorite restaurant. You may think what’s the big deal about it? Well, for starters my husband did the reservation as a surprise at this beautiful Tuscan grill called L’andana. He doesn’t like any food other than Indian so I knew this was only for me. Secondly, we hardly ever go out where it is just the two of us. Sooo, yeah it was fun to have a nice romantic dinner date with my darling!

Here are a few pictures of that day. I apologize about the quality of the pictures because I took them from my phone.

I have two pictures of the makeup up I did that day. Tell me how you like it. It was golden black smokey eyes with pale nude lips and very peach cheeks.


Happy Birthday to me!

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.
