28nov15

As we all know, smokey eye is an ever popular beauty look for any season and especially, this autumn season is all about smudged smokey eye look and also, with celebrities lining up with stunning and gorgeous red carpet looks in this party season, there is no doubt that mastering a smokey eye look is a mandatory feature for any beauty lover. Besides too, even though there are so many options to try on a smokey eye look in the shade from turquoise to burgundy yet still, black, grey and brown smokey eyes are making its presence in full swing to highlight this festive season even multi-folds better and hence let’s pop on to its essential staple right away.

Essentials:

  • Eye primer
  • Eye shadow base
  • Eye shadow brush
  • Eye shadow blending brush
  • Eye liner
  • Mascara

Key factors:

  1. The first and foremost factor for any long lasting eye shadow onto your eyes is a good, quality eye primer as just as Urban Decay Eye shadow primer potion.
  2. Next, select a versatile mono eye shadow pot just like the one I pictured above.
  3. Then, to get a professional styled smokey eye look, investing in a professional brush is a must which includes a mini shader brush with no.228 from MAC Cosmetics, a fluffy eye shadow blending brush from Tom Ford and finally, a gorgeous eye shadow brush from the brand, Zoeva.
  4. Undeniably, a brilliant eye liner is an essential staple to define a quintessential smokey eye look.
  5. Finally, a bold mascara is absolutely necessary to finish off the smokey eye look unmatchably elegant.

Procedure for a star-studded smokey eye look:

  1. Start the process by applying a small portion of eye primer all over your eyes.
  2. Take the glossy eye shadow from the pot and dab it onto back of your hand and distribute it evenly onto the eye shadow brush.
  3. Now, with the help of the eye shadow brush, apply it in smaller amount to cover up the area which is just above the upper lash line and then, with the aid of your pinky finger, dab the eye shadow all over the lid.
  4. Tips: If you have any mess ups at this point, you could flawlessly rub off the excess bits with the help of a cotton ball that in case if anything needed.
  5. Then, using a mini eye shader brush, take the tiniest amount of eye shadow underneath the lower lash line and smudge it lightly with the tip of the brush faultlessly.
  6. After that, take a clean fluffy blending brush and do a buff and blend movement upwards to get a perfect smokey eye look.
  7. Next, streak a fine thin layer of eye liner onto both of the lash lines perfectly well.
  8. Finally, to get a great voluminous lash look, apply plenty of mascara onto both upper and lower lash lines liberally.

Note:

Always, whenever you do a smokey eye look, keep that in mind to opt for a matte beige lip so that all the focus will be converged onto the eyes imminently.

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.

Picture Perfect Eye Essentials.

24aug15

From makeup artists to professionals, the first preliminary thing in makeup itinerary is to concentrate on eyes as they are the focal point on the face which can grab others attention in just a matter of a second; Plus, having used up makeup essentials in my day-to-day makeup routine for many years, today I will be showing you some of the essential elements in eye makeup which can bring an instant pop of colours to make your eyes wide awake.

Let’s start with the eyeshadow first. My favourite purple shaded MAC eyeshadow are quintessential to draw smokey eyes flawlessly which is ideal to wear onto parties or any other special occasion as it makes you feel like you are in a party vibe and moreover, I completely rely on the brand as it gives the maximum results in par with my expectation as well. Or, if you want to go for liquid eye shades, then you could always bump onto new Dior fluid eye shadow, which is perfect to revamp your eyes instantly with just few strokes of the liquid gel onto your eyes. Last but not least, blue eye shadow from my trust worthy brand, Lancome works exemplarily well for any evening glam look as its pigmentation is so concentrated and hence, what you all need to do is just add one or two dabs of eyeshadow onto your eyes and blend it well with a fluffy brush in buff and blend mode to get optimum results.

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.

When it comes to eyebrows, I always love to use my L’OREAL Paris Brow Artist Shaper onto my eyebrows to get a gorgeously defined professional eyebrows.

Lastly, I will finish of my eye makeup with my all-time favourite mascara that is from L’OREAL Paris that are perfect to give fluttered eyes that is suitable for any occasion. Furthermore, the one and only thing that I can’t miss onto a no-makeup makeup look is mascara as I cannot dream a day without it.

You could also try these basic essentials in your eyes to incorporate a different look each time and you can also play around to create a completely varied look as per your desire.

My festive-inspired electric cat eye look.

5jul151Recently, on the BET awards, Nicki Minaj and Rhianna went for a fabulous cat eye look on the red carpet, where the first one went for a dramatic eye look and the latter for a stellar eye look and in both ways, their representation of cat eye is so exceptional and absolutely unique and gorgeous in their own ways. So, with that as an inspiration, yesterday, I began working on with some of the different eye looks which are easily wearable and also, a festive favourite too and that’s where I ended up with this beautiful, dual-toned cat eye look and I should say, I am totally loving it at the moment and hence, I thought of sharing the same with you. So, let’s get started.

70’s theme:

As we all know, 70’s theme is incredibly rocking at this time of the year with all of the incredible people out there including celebrities, street stylers and fashion show catwalk models and also, the concept of blue hued eye look is also incredibly trending right now which also got hooked up by ever green fashion lovers and hence, myself, while trying to recreate my eye look, I was quite determined to incorporate all the current trend of 70’s essence to it and that’s why, I ended up with this electric cat eye look, which I could call it as a blue blended cat eye look.

Why did I choose blue colour?

If you are old enough, you could effortlessly be able to recollect the past by going back to a flashback of 70’s fashion or otherwise, you could reach to the ocean of 70’s fashion destination either through films or internet and when you look keenly onto the eye makeup, which is the apple of a makeup, you could easily see the famous ladies there wearing ravishing tints of blue that was slathered and smeared all throughout the eye and that’s the reason, I opted for the shade, turquoise, which is light and vibrant shade which could also tick all the boxes of fashion, style, statement, trend and electric.

What is cat eye?

Many women out there think that cat eye is a tricky subject that is hard to deal with. But, I think the other way as it is super easy to master and of course with a bit of practise as well, which I completely agree on. So, how to achieve a cat eye in an easy way? The surprising part is, it just only takes three easy steps which are:

  1. Firstly, draw the outline by starting from the inner socket of the eye and taking the line straight tilted to the point that is quarter of an inch below to the end of the brow (you can’t go wrong if you take this point right).
  2. Then, bring a line from that point to the end of the outer socket.
  3. Then, fill the gap with the desired eyeliner.

That’s it, the job is done. And, girls – it is that easy peasy and if you get incorrect at the first time, don’t get frustrated and just give up but instead, keep trying and I am sure in your third or fourth turn, you will be a pro. So, try wholeheartedly and after that, it is yours.

Recreate electric eye look:

  1.  Start off the routine with the well cleaned, washed and moisturised face.
  2. Then, just dab a bit of Laura Mercier eye primer all over the eye.
  3. Now, take a neutral toned eye shadow onto the eye lid and crease area and here, I went for a neutral shimmery eye shade from the Maybelline NewYork travel size eye palette.
  4. After that, take the Maybelline NewYork Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner and make an outline of cat eye shape.
  5. Then, take the turquoise kohl pencil from the Barry M Cosmetics and fill it in the first three-fifths of the cat eye.
  6. Now, fill the remaining space with the black eyeliner.
  7. Then using L’Oreal Paris False Lash Superstar Mascara, apply the lashes with lash primer no.1 brush and then follow it by the thick coat of black mascara no.2 brush and apply it nicely to the upper and lower lashes to give a fuller lash effect.
  8. Finish off the routine by shaping your eyebrows with L’Oreal Brow Artist Shaper.

Now, your eye look is ready to show off.

  2. Then, with the help of eye shadow brush, take the purple shade from MAC FARD PAUPIERES on the back of your hand and then, buff it lightly all over the eyelid lightly as you don’t want to put too much at this point and then, carry on building the shade by buffing all around the eye lid.
  3. Now, take the blending brush and run through the brush across the crease area and extend the smokey effect upwards while concentrating on the outer corner of the eye and also, try to bring the purple shade onto the outside of lower lash line and smudge a little bit there as well (as seen in pic 2).
  4. After that, take a swipe of shimmery gold shade from the Maybelline NewYork The Nudes eye palette onto your fingers and dab it gently on the middle of the eye (where the eye-ball sits) to give a nice shimmering feature (as seen in pic 3).
  5. Then, draw a very thin line of eye liner using L’Oreal Paris black eye liner pencil onto the upper and lower lash line.
  6. Now, give a dab of sparkling silver highlight from the Maybelline NewYork travel size eye palette onto the inner socket of the eye.
  7. Then, get ready with your eye brows by using L’Oreal Paris Brow Artist Shaper onto the eyebrows.
  8. Now, take the highlighting shade from the Maybelline NewYork travel size eye palette onto your fingers and dab it onto the brow bone to give a light shining effect.
