Besides too, the quality of their beauty products are incredibly competent and the durability is unbelievably long-lasting too. So, let’s get into the beauty edit right away.

In summer, the blue eye shadow shade was rocking like a wild wire and also, even in autumn look books, I could able to see the ravishing blues arraying in all sorts of beauty editorials and magazines that is accompanied along with the gorgeous AW15 apparel. Hence, the acclaim is, the blue eye shade is not going to fade anytime soon; plus, I was a bit of colour shy before and hesitant enough to dry dark shades and those bad old days are gone now as at the moment, I literally cling onto to try every new dark shade that appears on the market and some of the dark shades of autumnal colours such as blue, purple plum and violet are some among them. So, if you are a first time starter to try bright shades, then this beautiful shade of robin blue which has a tint of greenish blue hue along with a hint of pearly white sparkles is quintessential to colour yours eyelids flawlessly this autumn as this can be adorned on your eyes as a light or dark tone as per the occasion or it can be altered as just adding a thin stroke of blue line on the lower lash line that could make your eyes to pop colour instantly. Surprisingly, sometimes in a bit of a rush, I just pop on this hue onto my eyelids without even eye primer yet still it stays well smudge-free and crease-free throughout the day as it has the exemplary factor of long day wearability.  In further, if you want to look onto the intensity of this blue eye shadow then, you could always faultlessly may able to look it right in here.

August Favourites.

28aug15

The summer month went particularly too fast this time and what an adventure I had in the beauty section! Gloriously wonderful as I tried varied range of products from drugstore to high-end products with so many variations including eyeshadow, perfume, jewellery and multi-hued nail polishes. Yes, they are simply gorgeous! Moreover, I am so happy to try the latest trend in the beauty sector such as fluid eyeshadow that is fabulously rocking at the moment and also secured a commendable place under the eye shadow section and hats off to Dior for using magnificent new technology that has been incorporated in it. So, let me jump into the beauty goodies right away.

Having used the interesting unique pieces of jewellery from Accessorize for many years, recently I fell in love with their amazing beauty collection that is pocket-friendly and also has the quality in comparison to the luxury products and the smokey eye palette from Accessorize is one among them. This eye palette is so versatile to use as it has the dual purpose that has been designed as a pocket sized and also, it has a high factor of pigmentation too. Furthermore, the texture is so feather soft and just clings onto the shading brush instantly. Then, while moving onto their jewellery department, this time I bought the latest ear styling statement, ear cuff that is so trendy to wear and also, it has a feel of light-weight character plus embossed with stone jewelled detail of flowers and leaves to it.

Now comes Dior! Dior! Dior! The name itself describes everything as this brand is accepted and celebrated from beauty lovers to celebrities and I am not in exception either. So, the first thing I want to show you is the marvellous invention of fluid eyeshadow that has the duo characteristics of liquid eyeliner and also the fluid eyeshadow and people say that beauty is an art and to master this product is definitely an art as if you want to want to use this as an eyeshadow, what you all need to do is just close your eyes and have two or three gentle strokes of fluid eyeliner onto your eyelids and let it dry for a minute and eureka! now, you have the perfect glossy mirror like eyeshadow on your eyes that are smudge-free and has an equivalent factor of long-lasting durability that is perfect to adorn your eyes for parties or any other special occasions or if you want to use this product as an eyeliner, then add a thin streak of line close to the lashes with the help of brush wand. Besides, getting the complimentary gift of the latest Dior perfume, Blooming Bouquet is an another added beauty touch where I could able to try to test the gorgeous perfume without spending a penny and while moving along to the scent, basically the fragrance is filled with floral flavours that are refreshing and rejuvenating at the same time as well.

Last but not least, nail polish hit my beauty shelves madly in August and by the way, the credit goes to the gorgeous summer we had in UK this time. Hence, I have purchased a varied coloured scheme of nail varnishes that ranged from gold to coral and from turquoise to purple and from confetti to shimmer and these nail lacquers are also from the wide selection of nail brands including Barry M Cosmetics, Rimmel London, Ciate London, Sally Hansen and Accessorize.

I hope you could also try these beauty products too.

27aug152

Today’s nail art is all set for holiday theme. Moreover, two things are particularly famous in Los Angeles – one is venice beach and number two is avenue styled palm trees that runs along in line parallel to the street. Hence, with that as the inspiration, this time I will be adorning my nails with the gorgeous ombre effect setting of sunset as the background base and palm trees as the forefront runner. Doesn’t it sound wonderful? Besides too, I think there is no other better way to put altogether as a one single capsule. So, if you are in a holiday and planning to go on a holiday, then this nail art is quintessential way to interpret the holiday theme in a playful way and also, a cute way to entertain your holiday this summer. So, let’s see how to achieve this chic nail art in an easy and effective way.

27aug151ed

As you might have guessed, my sincere love to Barry M nail polish is continuing like a very long story and for now, I have picked three marvellous shades including deep pink, turbo charged coral shimmer, citrusy yellow and lastly, the Barry M nail art pen to create this fun full Sunset Palm Beach Nail Candies.

To get the ombre effect sunset background:

  1. Start the procedure with the freshly cleaned and washed nails.
  2. Apply a few drops of coconut oil to moisturise your cuticle.
  3. Then, apply a thin layer of base coat.
  4. Next, apply two coats of Sally Hansen’s white nail polish onto your nails as this helps to enhance the ombre effect layer at the top.
  5. After that, take a sponge and add streaks of pink, coral and yellow lines onto the sponge and dab it straight to your nails as two coats to get a nice pigmentation.
  6. Lastly, take off the excess bits by running a cotton bud that was soaked with nail polish remover along the perimeter of your nails to get a perfect tidied up look.

Note: Leave two minutes of drying each time after application.

Palm Tree Nail Art:

  1. Take the Barry M nail art pen and sketch the palm tree on top of the ombre effect nails by drawing a thin stroke of fine lines by starting from the tip of your nail and running towards the inner part of your nail.
  2. Allow the nail art to dry completely and this step is a must to get a nice smudge-free nail art look.
  3. Finally, apply a thin layer of top coat gently.

I hope you could also try this nail art at your home too.

While moving along to the eyeliner, I always prefer to have liquid eyeliner from Maybelline NewYork for fast and precise lines and a kohl pencil from Barry M Cosmetics for a chic blue eye look or a bronze goddess look. Besides too, a thin streak of eyeliner from Rimmel London is ideal to wear onto any busy workwear look as the definition of lines can be altered as per your requirements which could be achieved with the help of a thin slanted brush as tool.

19aug

You might have seen the prominence of aztec prints in various kinds of summer clothing including crop top, baggy printed trousers, figure-hugging bodycon dresses, scarves, shorts and many more and having fancied by the intricate details of the geometrical patterns myself that includes from triangles to zig-zags and from dots to horizontal lines and from squares to vertical lines, today I will be showing you some of my clear-to-detail, eye-catching, wild card patterns where all the hues and shapes take the centerstage in bringing a new theme of nail art design. So, let me take you straight into the gorgeous nail art patterns right away.

To build up the base shade for the aztec printed nail art, I trusted on three different nail shades that are all from essie:

  1. I love pinks and corals and the recent purchase of cute as a button from essie fits as a right shade to me as the highlight the nail art pattern that I tried to interpret has the combined tints of both pink and coral in just one single bottle which could bring out the essence of softness and freshness straight away.
  2. The next interesting shade that I completely rely on is naughty nautical that has the dual tones of turquoise and aqua marine and whenever I opted to apply this shade onto my nails, it always reminds me of the coolest crystal-clear deep blue sea.
  3. Last but not least, the gorgeous shade bikini so teeny from essie is my all-time favourite as it has the combined mixture of soft blue and lilac tints and moreover, this shade always gives me the refreshing flavour of blue peonies.

Application:

  • Start with the freshly washed and cleaned nails.
  • Then, apply a thin layer of base coat and then followed by two coats of desired base shade.
  • After that, top up your nails with various themes of nail art patterns.
  • Finish off your nail art with a thin layer of top coat.
  • Finally, clear off all the bits the bobs by running a cotton bud that is soaked with nail polish remover along the perimeter of your nails.

Besides, while coming back to the creative part of the nail design, I have experimented and implemented with varied themes of playful patterns which includes triangles, tribal stripes, pastel designs and many more. Also, these nail art theme looks absolutely amazing with all kind of weekend outfits such as denims and dresses.

So, I hope you would also try this nail art deign at your home as well.
