By the way, doesn’t it look like a quintessential berry shade? Marvellous!!!

  1. Start the procedure with a perfectly washed, cleaned and moisturised nails.
  2. Apply a thin layer of base coat onto your nails.

  5. Finally, run along a cotton bud that has been previously soaked up with nail polish remover onto the outer perimeter of your nails to take out any excess bits.
  6. Now, your nails are ready to show off.

Moreover, as the party season and Halloween is just around the corner, I would sincerely reckon any beauty lover to have a perfect berry shade into their autumn nail collection as there are so many spooky ways to bring up with a new and awesome halloween theme effortlessly.

Beauty Game: Lash Goals.

23oct15

A woman will be elevated over the moon if she has a fuller looking lash effect that is similar to a false lash effect and moreover, you could also able to get fluttering lashes like Audrey Hepburn using some simple techniques wherein the tiniest adjustment on mascara application can leave your lashes unbelievably looking longer and hence, in this post, I will be talking you with some of the useful information on how to use a mascara to the most and also, I will be popping up with some of the mind-blowing tips with regard to mascara application and so, stay tuned.

Step-by-step Mascara Application:

  1. Firstly, make sure you powder around the eye area so that when you apply mascara onto your lashes, it clings on well to your lashes and less likely to smudge.
  2. Then, don’t forget to curl your lashes as it gives a longer looking lashes.
  3. Now, apply primer onto your lashes and not to miss any of your hiding corner lashes too.
  4. After that, apply nearly 2 or 3 coats of mascara onto both of your lashes.

Tip & Tricks:

  • Look for a dense and short bristled mascara wand to give a nice all-over surface coverage to your lashes.
  • For a fuller-looking lashes, coat your lashes with mascara from root to end and also, not to forget to pick each of your lashes as it gives a great length too.
  • Always keep in mind “no clumps – no mess” and even then you get clumps from mascara, comb your lashes to get a separate and fanned out look.
  • Another advantage of curling your lashes before mascara application is, it gives a brilliant wide eyed effect.
  • While you coat mascara onto your lashes, make a push and wiggle sweeping movement to get a wonderful voluminous effect onto your lashes.
  • For a fuss-free mascara application onto your lower lashes, keep a tissue under your eyes, apply the mascara and allow your lashes to dry and then, take off the tissue.
  • While you take mascara out of the container, don’t push and pull your mascara wand several times as air might get clogged up easily.
  • As we all know, mascara has the lowest life span among all other beauty tools and hence, discard the mascara after 3-4 months of its use.
  • Lastly, for a well-precised mascara application, try to reach the product to the base of your root lashes and press the mascara wand gently upwards to get a good defined look or otherwise, if you apply strength onto your lashes, then the contents of the product might get spread onto your eyelids.

Bold And Intense Gel Eyeliner.

20oct15

Even though there are so many variations in sketching the preferred strokes of lines onto your eyes that is from pencil to liquid eye liners yet this lusciously creamy gel eyeliner from Rimmel London Scandaleyes Waterproof Gel Liner is great to use it onto your eyes and the only mandatory aspect that you need to have is a well firm and steady hand to draw a desired scheme of line. Plus, this versatile ink pot gel eyeliner is a fuss-free beauty tool as it is smudge-free, smear-free, chip-free, flake-free and crack-free too. Furthermore, as it comes in a generous amount of pot size, there is no wonder that it lasts long forever. So, let me guide you right away.

Features in a nutshell:

  • Colour is dark black
  • Well-pigmented
  • Texture is soft and smooth
  • Gel Liner Ink is rich and intense
  • Need tiniest amount of it each time
  • Waterproof
  • 24 hours Longevity
  • Easy-to-use applicator brush

Various ways to use this gel eyeliner:

  1. Go for an everyday makeup look just by applying a soft eyeshadow onto your eyelids and sketch the world’s thinnest line onto top of your upper lash line and also smearing a thin slash of line onto the outer half of your lower lash line and completing the eye makeup with plenty of mascara onto both of your lashes to give a fuller lashes look. This makeup is quintessential for a daily work wear look.
  2. If you are a great fan of feline flicked winged eyeliner, then take a tiny amount of gel eyeliner onto the precision applicator and then glide along smoothly onto your upper lash line with just couple of strokes of eyeliner to get the desired look. The tip is to start as a thin line from the inner corner of your upper lash line and building a thicker line as you go towards the outer corner and then extend outwards a little bit and then, finally don’t forget to join the end part to the outer corner of your eye to get a professional looking famous flicked look.
  3. I love cat eyes and if you want to design just as a pro-styled cat eye look, then start from the inner corner of your upper lash line with a slightly thick line and afterwards follow the natural shape of your eye and then when it comes near to the outer corner of your upper lash line, extend the flick upwards and then come back to join to the outer corner of your eye to give a nice winged look. Later, you could also fix these lines for a much more intense look by filing in the gaps with a little more of gel eyeliner to give a rich and dramatic makeup look.

Note:

Like every other makeup brush and similarly, you could also follow the same procedure to clean this applicator brush and in this way, you could also able to get rid of all the dirt that is sticking onto the applicator brush.

So, let’s get into some of the inside information of it right away.

Flower By Kenzo – L’Elixir Eau De Parfum:

The well-known perfume collection from Flower By Kenzo has been used by the beloved fans since the start of this millennium and the brand is constantly working on to improvising their fragrance edit each time on their stylish unique launch and the latest brand new eau de parfum L’Elixir is a typical example of their in-depth knowledge of perfumery intelligence. Moreover, the brand’s promotion on this latest innovation has been sky-rocketing in the stores ever since its launch and hence, with much anticipation, this weekend, I had a chance to try one of their tester sample which is absolutely a true delight to indulge myself in aromatherapy for few moments.

Aroma Accent:

Furthermore, this latest edition is an exclusive fragrance to celebrate their 15 years of perfumery collection and also, this sophisticated perfume has all the properties of addictive, intense and floral notes to capture the real essence of flower power in all of its true form. Besides, this perfume opens up with a fruity top note of raspberry and mandarin and then, later followed by an incredible floral heart note of Bulgarian rose and orange blossom and finishing off marvellously with a sweet base note of vanilla and praline. Having said that I completely adore this fragrance, I’m planning to buy a full-sized bottle of this perfume during Christmas time as there is no other way to celebrate this special occasion as good as this.

TRESemme – Perfectly (un)done:

Albeit, summer is officially over, there always still exist a great excuse to get an ultimate look of tousled, messy hair every then and there. Moreover, we have also seen some of the famous celebrities including Kate Hudson rocking their effortlessly combed sea wave patterned hair during their official visits. Before, there were a different scenario where beauty lovers like us happened to struggle with their hairs for hours to cope up with the newly formed tousled hair look but now, to make our life simpler, TRESemme has introduced a whole new series of haircare collection and one among their newest range is the TRESemme – Perfectly (un)done – wave creating – seafoam for soft waves. Too, this ultralight product is also infused with a gorgeous extract of sea-kelp in which it creates a naturally looking tousled wavy hair each time after use.

How to use:

  1. Start the procedure with your shampooed, conditioned and towel-dried, damp hair.
  2. Divide your hair into three sections.
  3. Now, you try to dispense 2-5 pumps onto each section depending upon the texture of your hair.
  4. Naturally Wavy Hair: Apply the dispense evenly and then, blow dry your hair and then, later scrunch in and allow it to air dry for a naturally wavy look.
  5. Naturally Straight Hair: Apply the dispense evenly and then allow it to blow dry. Later, using a heated curling iron, curl your hair to get a softer smooth waves.
  6. Last but not least, comb through your hair and fix the tousled waves with the aid of a hair spray.
