Hi There !!!

As wedding season is around its every now and then I have been attending weddings of friends and family..So I came up with this makeup look which is very appropriate for weddings.Photo 29-01-18, 12 42 50 PM

  • To start with i use a good amount of moisturizer and a colourbar Perfect Match primer .I wait for about 5 to 10 minutes to start my makeup as it set as a perfect base.
  • Under my eyes i used BENEFIT Erase paste in No 2.  as a colour corrector ANd around my mouth I have pigmentation so to colour correct that I used L.A GIRL PRO CONCEAL in shade Orange.
  • Using my BEAUTY BLENDER I applied MAYBELLINE FIT ME FOUNDATION in SHADE 128 WARM NUDE BEIGE.
  • I went over with my favourite INSTANT AGE REWIND concealer by MAYBELLINE on all the places where I had colour corrected.Blending that with my beauty blender.
  • Setting the base with powder I used MAC MINERALIZED SKIN FINISH IN MEDIUM.
  • Setting all above base with a setting spray helps in keeping the base at its place and without budging it off.I set it with NYX DEWY FINISH SETTING SPRAY and dabbing over with my beauty blender.
  • For my eyes I have used only one palette i.e MAKEUP REVOLUTION NEW-TRALS VS NEUTRALS. photo-30-01-18-4-52-34-pm.jpg
  • On to My Crease I used Shade Bais and Neutrals using PAC 392 Blending brush.That will be the transition shade.
  • Then on the Outer corner till the half way of the lid I applied Shade Vogue from the palette with PAC 203 Brush.
  • With the same brush I went over the orange shade with the brick red shade from the palette New-Tral.This time I Only applied the shade on the outer corner.To get the perfect Smokey eye I dont use a Tape but instead use a flat end of the any makeup tube I have learnt this trick from many youtubers.
  • Then again to intensify my outer corner of the eye I went over with Shade Custom from the Palette using the same brush Pac 203.

With a clean brush I brushed of any harsh line.Then on to my inner corner I applied Shade Mode till half way of my lid using PAC 102.

  • Using an Ink Liner I lined my liner creating a little wing.
  • Lining my tight line and lower lash line with PLUM NATUR STUDIO ALL DAY WEAR KOHL KAJAL in black.
  • Then using the shade NEW-TRALS AND CUSTOM I smuged my lower Lash line to give smokey effect using PAC 106.
  • Taking and glitter (mine was from the local Beuaty shop) I took shop glitter glue over my PAC 203 and dip it in the glitter and then applied it only in the inner corner of my eye over the shade mode. Then blending all the eyeshadow with a clean brush.
  • For MASCARA I used WET N WILD LASH RENEGADE.
  • I used hoola Bronzer from BENEFIT to contour my face. For the Blush I used LORAC CUE THE CONFETTI PALETTE SHADE TECHNICOLOR.
  • For the Highlight I used MARY LUMINIZER FRON THE BALM and MAKEUP REVOLUTION PRO ILLUMINATE.
  • For my EYEBROW I used MAYBELLINE FASHION BROW In BROWN.
  • For the lip I use any of these two COLOURPOP VIPER OR BOURJOIS ROUGE VELVET 05.

MY TOP 5 FAVOURITE PRODUCTS FROM FOREST ESSENTIALS…

Hi there!!!

I am hoarder when  it comes to all natural products,let it be face mask or face packs.Anything that has natural ingredient, I get attracted to it. I believe that natural things give far better results on skin then going for something chemical based.And therefore brands like forest essential are one of my favourite brands.I have started using forest essential from past one year and have got best result out of its products.All these products are available at FOREST ESSENTIALS individual store as well as on NYKAA.I have purchased mine from both but on nykaa you get better deal as they have offers in which they give trail samples. So here are some of My favourite products from forest essential.

  1. FACIAL TONIC MIST PANCHPUSHP :

This is a facial mist with an amazingly soothing fragrance.It can be used any time of the day.It contains five flowers one of which is rose so  I use this instead of rose-water .I add this in my facial pack and spray it regularly over my face during summer.There are more variety of facial mist range in forest essential but I particularly like this as it is very soothing and relaxing.

This is priced at INR 725/- for 100 ml and INR 1275/- for 200 ml.I personally buy 100 ml as it is easy to carry in bag while travelling.

2. SILKENING SHOWER WASH- MASHOBRA HONEY AND VANILLA.

 I have tried many body wash and they usually don’t leave any fragrance once it’s washed with water but this particularly leaves a mild fragrance over the body.Its warm fragrance gives a feel of spa the moment the lid is opened,it calms the mind and body. Vanilla aroma is known for its stress relieving,treating anxiety and improving sleep.Honey has moisturizing properties ,so this body wash is good for the people with dry skin.

This is priced at INR 975/- for 200 ml.

3. COLD PRESSED ORGANIC VIRGIN OIL  – COCONUT.

I use virgin coconut oil not only on my hair but as well as on my skin.I use it directly coz coconut oil is very moisturizing as I have extremely dry skin and I even use it with my homemade face packs.On my hair I mix this oil with Kama ayurveda bringadi hair oil (I have written a full review on it) as I have very thick and long hair I mix the two to apply at the ends of my hair.Normally cold pressed coconut oil from other brands remains liquidy during winter, this is the only oil which tend to thicken during winter.So I feel this must be purely cold pressed.This do have a very strong coconuty smell to it which irritates me a little as I don’t like the smell of coconut other than that this is the best coconut oil I have used.

This is priced at INR 795/- for 200 ml.

4.SANJEEVANI BEAUTY ELIXIR –

All the ingredients in this cream are sourced from the Ayurvedic texts and are 100% natural.It is an enriched version of natural sebum which instantly penetrates and plumps the skin.This can be used as a moisturizer or as a makeup primer. Its has a thin creamy constancy so it doesn’t feel heavy on skin. It has a mild sweet fragrance to it which is not at all over whelming . The fragrance reminds me of some sweet dish with such pleasant aroma.

This is priced at INR 3395/- for 30 ml. This is quite expensive but worth giving a try for people with skin problems as this is 100 % natural product and it is chemical free. Being honest here this was a gift from a friend for my birthday otherwise personally I wouldn’t have purchased this.

5. DELICATE FACIAL CLEANSER – KASHMIRI SAFFRON AND NEEM- 

Facial cleansing is the most important step in beauty regime, so I take care that I use something best for my skin, so it deeply cleanse and refreshes my skin. This cleanser does refreshes my skin but doesn’t deep clean it. Even though it does half the work I love this cleanser coz it refreshes my skin and me personally that none of the facial cleanser does.I think the main reason behind me loving FOREST ESSENTIAL products is the fragrance all the products give. This face wash lifts up my mood and calms me down.It has Saffron which gives glow to skin and neem for purifying and deep cleansing. In this saffron definitely works but neem is little mild for the treatment it is known for.

This is priced at INR 1175/- for 200 ml .Again this is overly priced but again I got this as a gift (I had asked for it :p ). even though this is highly priced, 200 ml is good amount and can be used for one whole month.So the price is worth the amount of time you can use this.

I love FOREST ESSENTIAL anyways even though it is highly priced. Some of the products I will surely keep on repurchasing.

PS: Let me know if you have tried any off the products from FOREST ESSENTIAL. and dont forget to give your feedback. You are doing a good deed by helping me so go ahead do it. 🙂 lots of love …

PRODUCT REVIEW: KAMA AYURVEDA BRINGADI INTENSIVE HAIR TREATMENT OIL

Hi !!

This oil is not new in the market so for the review I am a bit late. But as I am using this oil for past two years now I can officially give a true product review…

Photo 12-01-18, 2 18 56 PM

I had some severe hair infection 2 years back which led to greasy hair even after hair wash. My scalp use to get too oily, there was excessive hairfall and no hair growth. Around my crown area a lump of hair use to get sticky and get entangled . Going through all this I was frustrated and irritated. I had used all the possible hair oil and changed hell lot of shampoo’s but nothing worked.People use to comment on my hair on how bad they look.My hair was in an unmanageable state where I had decided to go bald. But before i take an extreme step I came across this Oil while browsing at an beauty app called Nykaa @mynykaa . So i thought of purchasing it and since  than have never stopped using it.

KAMA AYURVEDA BRINGADI INTENSIVE HAIR TREATMENT OIL CLAIMS:

  • Lush hair growth
  • Prevents hair loss
  • Helps in curing Dandruff
  • Prevents Premature greying
  • Natural conditioner

Photo 12-01-18, 2 50 30 PMPhoto 12-01-18, 2 51 22 PM

Since the time I bought this Oil I use this before every hair wash. I have an habit of appling hair oil overnight , so i do same for this hair oil as well. But the product claims that it will show effect even if you apply half an hour before hair wash. My hair infection was gone within a week of application i.e thrice in a week . the quality of my hair has improved alot.I had shoulder lenght hair 2 years back and now it comes below my waist even after getting trimmed regularly.My hair feels thicker now and better in quality. For the grey hair I cannot claim that it stopped as i already had little grey hair when i started using it ,hopefully it will stop any new hair to turn grey (finger crossed).By far this KAMA AYURVEDA BRINGADI OIL has been my favourite. I will never stop using this hair oil for sure.

I still use it before every hair wash and will continue to do so .The bottle of 250 ml last me for around 1.5 month which cost 1050/- rs and the smaller bottle of 100 ml which last for 20 days plus cost for 575/- .You can purchase the smaller bottle to give it a try.

PROS:

  • Does help in reducing the hairfall.
  • Surely PREVENTS AND REPAIR HAIR DAMAGE.
  • Makes hair soft and manageable.
  • Prevent Dandruff.

CONS:

  • Expensive.
  • It has a strong herbal smell to it which can get unbareable by many but I guess its the herbs that works right so that can be avoidable.

I will surely repurchase this oil, I am using my fifth bottle now and about to open my new bottle.I will surely recommend  KAMA AYURVEDA BRINGADI INTENSIVE HAIR TREATMENT to all of those who has problem with hairfall ,to those who have some hair infection alike mine and people with dandruff. I have already recommended to many of my friends and family who has dandruff and excessive hair fall and it has helped them as well.

PS: Do give this oil a try and do let me know your views on it .lots of love and one more thing do leave your feedback it helps me improve 🙂

My New year Eve Makeup look

Hey hi!

It has been long I have written something here..Well with New year I am back as New me…

End of the year comes with lot of stress. With stress of party,good clothes,perfect makeup and most importantly stress of how coming new year would turn out to be.Its great to keep things simple and that’s what i did with my makeup…A simple smokey eye and nude lip was my go to makeup.

Photo 02-01-18, 6 00 21 PM

To start it of I always use orange corrector to cover up all the dark spotted area.I feel this a must step when u want to go for flawless makeup .I have used L.A girl Pro conceal concealer to conceal my dark spot and pigmented area..Blending really well with my beauty bleander, i went ahead to top it up with maybelline age rewind concealer in the shade medium.This helps in concealling and making an even tone skin.

I usually dont go to heavy on foundation but as i had opt for black smokey eye ,i preferred going flawless so i used an extra amount of foundation than i usually do.I used maybelline fit me in shade warm beige..I dont wet my beauty blender, instead i spray setting spray on it and then blend my foundation.To set it all i used Mac mineralize skinfinish powder and spray Nyx dewy finish setting spray and pushing it all with a beauty blender.

Using a rusty brown shade from carli bybel pallete of BH cosmetics , i did my crease, blending the colour in with Pac cosmetic blending brush in 033.. then i wet my Pac 102 brush taking a matte black shade from the body shop pallete.Any matte shade can be used . The only important step here is blending.I then applied a plum kajal in black on to my lower lash line.and takin the same brown and smudging my kajal to give more smokey look.I used two mascara loreal false lash butterfly and the turbo volume express .To clean up any fall out I used Nyx Hd concealer in shade light.For eyebrows Maybelline fashionbrow in taupe.

I usually dont contour but as I was going for a Glamourous look i thought of doing it.I used nyx matte bronzer in shade medium.This bronzer is very pigmented so make sure to use light handedly.For the blush I used a peachy shade (technicolour) from Lorac cue the confetti palette and for the extra glow i used two highlighter Anastasia beverly hills So hollywood and The balm Mary luminizer on all the possible high points of the face 🙂 .i love highlighter so its never too much for me.

For lipstick I chose a nude shade from Lakme 9 to 5 in shade coffee lite.To set all my makeup into place I sprayed the setting spray once again and my beauty blender i pressed it all inyo the skin..

PS: Do leave some good words, it will help me improve.lots of love
