Seriously, we are on the same team.

  1. Slut shaming. Let women make their own decisions and stop feeling like it’s your given right to express your disapproval. Here’s a motto to live by: Not your vagina, not your business.
  2. Making comments about other women’s bodies. All comments go straight to the heart and they’re really unneeded.
  3. Seriously, just saying “oh my gosh you’re so skinny, you’re like anorexic” is just as demeaning as commenting on the weight that a girl has gained. Just don’t.
  4. Knowingly seeking out another woman’s man. Have respect for other relationships the same way you’d want someone to respect yours.
  5. Being jealous of each other’s accomplishments. Be happy for other women and the achievements that they work hard for.
  6. Giving backhanded compliments. “Your hair looks great! It would look even better a little shorter.” Wow, thanks?
  7. Blaming the “other woman” when the man cheats. First of…

Swatch series – 3

13 Sep

Today’s swatch series is on gel eyeliners.. I am a big fan of gel eyeliners and I much prefer these to liquid eyeliners due to the precise application one can achieve with it.. I am also no so much into the shine liquid liners leave behind.. I enjoy the matte finish of gel liners.. Also, the color options with gel liners is way more than liquid liners.. and I love my colors! ;-)

Here are the swatches of the gel liners I own..

My favorite eyeshadow of the moment..

It’s not very common when I fall in love with a single eyeshadow.. Yet, it has happened.. I have been loving MAC’s Texture eyeshadow ever since I purchased it last month.. It’s a gorgeous soft warm orange eyeshadow with a lot of beige in it.. It’s a velvet finish eyeshadow which means that it is extremely smooth and almost creamy to apply.. It blends exceptionally well..  On my skin, it comes across as a subtle orange.. I’ve been using it on its own all over the eyelids blended into the crease for an easy one eyeshadow look.. This can be paired with a brown or black eyeliner for an every day look..

I’ve also been using Texture for blending out my crease color.. It warms up any look beautifully.. I have a new video on YouTube using this shadow.. I have linked it below..

What are your thoughts? Have you tried MAC’s Texture? What’s been your favorite eyeshadow recently?

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: I am on YouTube!

6 Sep

Hey everyone,

I am so excited to finally announce my arrival on the YouTube beauty community.. I have been watching YouTube videos since 2008 and it has always dawned upon me the sheer lack of beauty related knowledge for women of color, especially for Indian skin tones.. Colors and makeup in general looks so different on our skin coloring.. This was exactly why I had started my blog.. However, after 1.5 years of blogging I have realized that certain things are conveyed better through videos/tutorials.. Hence, the addition of this channel.. Don’t worry.. I will be continuing blogging too! I hope you will support me in this new journey on YouTube..

Here’s the link to my first YT video.. Any feedback is welcome.. I am shy as a person and therefore the first video does not have me speaking through the various steps..

My second video is geared towards covering dark under eye circles.. I hope you like it..

Thank you!

Swatch series-2

4 Sep

Hey guys, 

I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend.. I sure did! Today, I am doing my second post in the swatch series with cream blushes.. Most of these shades work well with my skin tone (MAC NC40-42 for reference)..

IMG_0557 copy

I have four MAC cream blushes – Pleasureful, Posey, Optimistic Orange and Cherry.. Of these, my favorite is Posey.. It’s a beautiful pinky-mauve shade that looks very natural on my skin.. These blushes are quite thick and creamy in texture compared to other brands.. Hence, I do not use them in summer.. They work well in winter on my oily-combination skin.. 

My favorite cream blushes of all-time have to be the MakeUpForEver HD blushes.. I have them in #410 and #510.. They almost have a mousse-y texture.. These are my favorite blushes simply because of how light they feel on the skin and the way they really blend onto the skin.. These are the only cream blushes I can wear in summer considering I have oily-combination skin..I adore #510!

I also have the NARS matte multiple in Siam and NARS cream blush in Lokoum.. These blushes tend to be more on the drier side.. They are not as creamy as the ones my MAC and MUFE.. I use Siam for a monotone look by using it on my cheeks and lips.. 

I also enjoy the Bobbi brown pot rouge in ‘#10 Rose’.. It is a gorgeous shade and I get quite a lot of use from it.. It’s the perfect in between shade of MAC Posey and MUFE #510.. I love this shade! Again, I use this for a monotone look by using it on my cheeks and lips.. 

Finally, I have two drugstore cream blushes, both by Maybelline.. One is the dream mousse blush #25 Rose petal and the other is the dream bouncy blush #50 plum wine.. These do not last on their own on my oily skin and I have to set these with a powder blush on top.. 

That’s it guys.. I hope this is helpful.. :-)

Sisterhood of the world bloggers award.. :-)

29 Aug

I am excited that I have been nominated by the very sweet Natasha from blondebeauty13 for the Sisterhood of the world bloggers award.. I am grateful that fellow bloggers recognize me as one of them.. It means a lot to me.. Thank you Natasha!

sisterhood1

For those not familiar with these kind of blog awards, basically I answer questions set forth by the host (blondebeauty13 in my case).. and then I get to nominate 10 fellow bloggers and get them to answer my questions.. It helps to get to know the bloggers a little better each time.. :-) and then the chain continues..

Here are the questions:

1. What’s your favourite makeup brush brand?
Aghhh.. It is really tough for me to choose one brand because the brands vary in quality and pricing! So, I’ll cheat on this one and pick three so I can address various budgets.. ;-) My high end pick are brushes by Wayne Goss, my relatively affordable pick is Sigma and my affordable brush brands are Real Techniques and Elf! I am amazed at how good quality their brushes are for the price..
2. What is your favourite highstreet clothes store?
I am not a very brand conscious person.. My style is quite casual and I like anything that’s comfortable.. The store I like in the US is JC Penny.. I think their clothes are well worth the price.. Other stores I like are Forever21, Macys and Kohls..
3. Favourite highstreet makeup brand?
Hmmm…. hmmmm…. Probably Revlon.. Since many of my drugstore products are from that brand.. I also enjoy products by Loreal..
4. What is on your top 3 high-end makeup wish list?
Lol.. I have such a loooooooong list of high-end makeup wish list!! Top 3 would be Tom Ford eye shadow quad in orchid haze or cocoa mirage or cognac sable, Paula Dorf sheer crease brush (I can never seem to find this brush!) and Chanel blushes!
5. If you could only choose two items of makeup for the rest of your life, which would it be?
I would say Concealer since it can double up as a foundation.. I can always sheer it out if the need be.. The second product is a tie between a setting powder and a lip stain! I need both! lol..
6. Matte or glossy lipstick?
I prefer Matte and creamy lipsticks.. not glossy..
7. Favourite colour lipstick/gloss?
I absolutely love Tarte lipsurgence in Envy! I have finished two tubes of that and am onto my third tube.. It’s my go-to product for any look.. It looks quite natural on my skin tone..
8. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
hmm… Its tough.. I am torn between two cities.. Mumbai and San francisco! Mumbai because that’s where I was born and was raised for the most part and my family lives there.. San Francisco for its sheer beauty! Both cities are special to me..
9. If you were to be one of the F.R.I.E.N.D.S characters, which would you be?
I don’t watch much of F.R.I.E.N.D.S on my own.. Hubby, on the other hand is a huge fan! So, I do end up watching some episodes here and there.. I am assuming I have to choose a female character.. I would probably be a hybrid of Monica and Rachel..
10. Lastly, what’s your signature scent?
None. I am not a perfume gal. I do have some.. most of them are gifts or samples.. I use them infrequently.. But, I am fond of Jasmine scented products if that counts!…
I haven’t checked if the following bloggers have done this before but here’s my list of bloggers that I nominate for this award..
I’ll just keep it to 5 questions.. ;-) Here we go:
1. What is your favorite skincare product?
2. What made you start blogging?
3. What is your favorite concealer for acne scars or other discolorations?
4. What hair products do you use between one wash to the next, including styling?
5. What is your favorite family of color?
Thank you folks for taking time and making it through this long post.. I hope you had fun reading.. :-)
