30aug2017

Hurray! I’m back after 2 months of summer holidays and I’m feeling myself totally refreshed and rejuvenated and so, now, I’m back to regular blog routine. As you all know, with so many new beauty supplies that are available on the market, here comes my take on those amazing little beauties.

NYX Highlight and Contour Palette:

First of all, salute to Kardashian sisters, who has introduced contouring concept to the whole world as popular than ever before and ever since then, it has become as a famous  face sculpting technique to the amazing beauty community and one such kind that is outstandingly pocket-friendly with superior quality is NYX highlight and contouring palette and I would highly recommend this product to any contouring newbie as the creamy texture of the palette works immensely well and less is more when it comes to this palette and the pro-style finish is the highlighting feature among all and so, please check it out as it comes with an incredible price of £18 only.

Eyeko Black Magic Lash Curler:

One ultimate tool that any girl needs before mascara application is a good standard eye curler and this Eyeko black magic lash curler is my latest great find and the soft touch with extreme precise finish are the best qualities about this product and it gives a quintessential lift and curl, which is essential to achieve an amazing mascara finish and also, with just £12, it is definitely a great bargain to look for. Moreover, having tried their products before like black magic mascara and skinny liquid eyeliner, I can’t praise enough of their astonishing quality finish.

MAC Satin Red:

I love MAC lipsticks as the creamy texture and ever-loving smooth application is always a pleasure to apply on the lips and when it comes to this lipstick, the satin finish and red hue looks sumptuously beautiful.

Tangle Teezer:

I love tangle teezer and it works great on both wet and dry hair and it tames your hair exponentially well and so, it is always a win-win for me.

I wish all of you to have a wonderful weekend and see you again on my next post and please remember to drop your amazing comments and as always, I would love to read them.

I love this TBS Cuban Watermelon Blush as it brings in a subtle sheen to my cheeks instantly and you know, winter is the season of blushes and so, having one of them is a must-have staple right now.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy High Gloss Ultra Brilliance

I totally agree that 2016 was the year of lips as there were so many new products for lips on the market and me not in exception either as I have tried so many varieties of them and one among the best is Estee Lauder High Gloss which is quintessential to wear on its own or just above the lipstick.

Nice to see bright sunshine coming out today after a fiery storm with hailstones poured out yesterday and I hope you are having a much settled weather on your side. On the other hand, I have been extremely busy at work but still managed to find couple of high end staples which was on my bucket list for a while. Hurray! It feels like christmas has come early. Viola! Plus, I love these latest beauty buys as they are all from great brands like MAC, Clinique, Estee Lauder and The Body Shop and surprisingly, I made a sensible variation of buys from skincare to makeup too. So, stay tuned to see what is in-store for.

Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator:

I’m so glad that I have finally found a super intense moisturising skincare product that brings in an unbelievable hydration to my skin all day long that is 24 hours promising moisture retention – WOW! Doesn’t it sound amazing? Additionally, it has become a firm staple on my skincare regime which I carry out every morning and evening. All-in-all, my skin felt much happier than ever before and even plumped up really well as a healthy, balanced looking skin. It retails at £34 for 75ml and little goes long way and I think one can’t go wrong with it.

Always remember to **CLICK HERE** to find out my love for other Clinique skincare products.

MAC Cosmetics Rebel Lipstick:

If one high end lipstick that is a must-have staple for this season, then it has to be MAC Rebel and oh my! The colour looks so ravishingly beautiful and if you have a love affair with plum or berry shade, then it is a definite buy and while using, it swipes on your lips gorgeously well and leaving your lips with luscious tint of crushed berries. Besides, the quintessential creamy consistency of the lipstick is amazingly good and its texture works out extremely good on all kinds of skin type as I have seen most popular celebrities like Rhianna and Kim Kardashian wearing this and it looked so elegant. Lastly, it trades around just £15.50, which is a well worthy buy.

Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Lifting Volume Mascara:

If one staple in the makeup world that you can’t without it, then it should be a mascara and finding a good, quality mascara is another great challenge and I always love mascaras from Estee Lauder as it is reliable and trust worthy to use that will keep you calm and relaxed for next 3 months with complete peace of mind and one great example for this is, Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Lifting Volume Mascara. It brings in effortless curl, lift and weightless volume instantly. In addition, with 5 star rating and an amazing value of just £21, to be honest, it is always a wise buy.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Mattifying Toner:

Toner is a much needed product if you want a healthier and clearer skin as it mattifies and cleanses your skin multi times better and such great find is The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Mattifying Toner. I really love the infusion of tea tree oil from Mount Kenya in it as it brings in a nourishing element at the same time while cleansing which I think as a great bonus as it meanwhile soothes your skin too. All put together, it makes your skin to feel tighter pores, visibly looking clearer skin and finally, brings in shine to your skin as well. Score! Plus, with just £5.50 for 100ml, it is a definite winner as it certainly gives a long lasting mileage.

My 6 Comeback Beauty Heroes.

15jan161

As we are all residing in the mid of January, I think this is the right time to rewind back some of the beauty products that completely transformed the definition of beauty and also served me as a beauty hero in which some of them will be carried forward to the existing collection of beauty wardrobe. Apparently, what a bang on year was 2015! Sensational! In terms of beauty that includes from skincare to makeup, a few favourites of mine were reigning the whole year of 2015 beauty regime as a true champion and even though, there are lots to discuss about and get appreciated yet here, I have cherry picked 6 of those items which I like the most among all others.

15jan162

Anyways, who can able to resist the gorgeous pigmented and shimmeriness of the eyeshadow that exists in just Mac eye shadows alone that are beauty marked as velvet. Besides, what do you expect from this product? Well, it has a dense texture that is easy to build and bendable to give you a evenly covered look and there is no doubt that it could give you an instant long-lasting glam look with just a tiny amount of the content and so, it gives you a long mileage as well. So, if you are looking for an eyeshadow that is quintessential for an evening wear, then this purple eyeshadow is the right choice as it glam up your eyes right away.

 

15jan163

So, what does this stunning Eyeko London Black Magic Mascara claim to do? Well, this mascara works extremely well for a long lasting wear and the main properties of it includes: lengthens lashes, separates and curls without clumping, creates drama with extreme lash volume and projects your lashes with intense carbon black that are water resistant too. Additionally, its unique formula is enriched with special key ingredients like keratin and shea butter that are ideal to aid as a lash care and hence, it keeps your lashes hydrating and also the natural conditioners in the formula provides a high percentage of smudge proof and flake proof coverage as well.

15jan164

Another fantastic eye makeup product that is hard to resist is Lancome Ombre Hypnose mono eye shadow in the shade Lagon secret wherein the tint comes as robin blue. In further, this eye shadow looks as luminous and silky and does the job brilliantly well for a sophisticated and vibrant look and application wise, it is so simple to use and what you all need to do is, just apply the eye shadow all over the eyelids and the creamy, super soft texture of the eye shadow stays on your lids for a long lasting effect or otherwise, if you want to have a bit more play, then blend and build well to get an intense warm look.

15jan167

One more beauty product that defines your eyes fabulously beautiful is  2-in-1 Dior addict Fluid Shadow and this light weight fluid shadow is designed explicitly for a dual purpose note of eye shadow and eyeliner. While moving along to its texture, it is thin and watery that is ideal to give you an enamel finish flawlessly. Plus, the bristles on the brush are designed in such a way to give you a smooth and even application each time you stroke it on your eyes. Importantly, the secret to get a precise look is just stick onto one stroke application using the brush and don’t try to budge or blend either with your finger or a brush as the fluid dries up quickly but I should say that the finished look is long lasting(I mean it a lot) and doesn’t fade at all. I know it is tricky to use but the completed look appears to be pure elegance.

15jan165

Now, let’s move onto lipstick. Apparently, if you are looking for a luscious red lips like Marilyn Monroe, then this bold, bright red lipstick from Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Creme in the shade Love that red is the right choice for you as it gives a signature statement red lips with an added value of gorgeous opaqueness. Moreover, the lipstick is well pigmented and super hydrating and the texture is quintessentially light weight and very versatile to use.

15jan166

Multi-tasker! That is a perfect definition to call this Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant because it protects and stays onto my skin just as a second skin. In conclusion, it acts as a glove to my skin and it hydrates and moisturises my skin all day long; plus, it protects my skin against the extreme dryness and wind chapped skin conditions.

Well, let me know your beauty heroes that you’ve already used in 2015 and still like to carry along to the current year too. And, As always, I would love to see your fantastic thoughts and views into the comment section that is right below.

Happy Weekend!

How To Get A Pro-Styled Smokey Eye.

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.
