  •       I personally don’t like putting a lot of concealer and foundation on my skin. As here in Mumbai because of heat my makeup tends to melt down but as in summer i get little tan in a very weirdly different places  of face i do need concealer and foundation to even out the skin specially during some special occasion.To conceal my dark circles an spots i used maybelline age rewind concealer.and to even out dark spot i applied forever 52 concealer.I will insert a picture of all the product used down below.Then maybelline fit me foundation which fits me really well…
  • and to set the base makeup I used Mac mineralize skin finish in medium dark.This blends so well i just loveeeeee this product.
  • Now for eyes i used a maybelline gel liner in back for the thick wing eyeliner and then i wen and blended it into my crease a little. this is where it get little messier but its ok as it can fixed.
  • On the eyelid i used loreal infallible forever pink to give that romantic touch. Then again i fixed my liner with the same gel liner and apply it very close to my water eye and blending it.i use pencil liner for my water line but you can use the gel liner as well.
  • for my eyebrows i used anastasia beverly hills dipbrow pomade in chocolate using small strokes and filling in the gaps.
  • for mascara i used two of them loreal butterfly false lashes to lengthen and for volume i used rimmel scandaleyes .
  • for cheeks i used sivanna mineral blush in 06 , it gives a pretty pink glow to the cheeks and for highlighter i went for more pinky glow using makeup revolution baked highlighter in peach lights, i don’t know why its named peach light there is nothing peachy about it..its very pinky.
  • for the bronzer to emphasis my cheek bone i love using nyx matte bronzer in medium with a very light hand i blend this on to the dent of my cheek …
  • and on lips i applied my favourite nyx liquid suede in sandstorm which is a perfect nude for me and topping it up with lime crime daimond crusher in trip.its a beautiful blue sparkly gloss.

that’s it a very simple date night romantic look

TRAVEL ESSENTIALs 

Hi there, 

While travelling i usually forget some or the other things but some things are must have’s and i just cant do without it .most of us have a habit of forgeting things and then regret oh! I should have got that and i do regret not taking things along in trips but with this few stuff i can live on a barren island too 😜.

 

  • One is the Bioderma micellaire water, its light weight makeup remover so you dont need to wash face after that . It removes eyemakeup and waterproof mascara also so well. Its even moisturizing so for dry skin its like a plus point. My skin is too dry and this works perfect.
  • Kama pure rose water face and body mist is a perfect product to travel with, it freshen up tired looking skin. It has a mild rose fragrance which i love, its not too over powering. It comes in small bottle which is easy to travel with. I purchased mine from nykaa for around 250 rs. 
  • Maybelline fit me foundation is lightweight, not too heavy on skin. And while travelling its better to keep minimal makeup and not to go overboard. It comes in a small glass bottle so again easy to travel with.the only draw back is it give medium coverage so for people who prefer full coverage this wont be perfect. There are variety of shades to choose from. Its for 525 rs/- for 30 ml. 
  • Loreal true match concealer – i have been using this from past 3 years now and i have never thought of trying any other concealer after this. It conceals dark circle too well. It comes in a small plastic bottle so again easy to travel with. It is super blendable and give great coverage. Does not feel heavy on skin. Its for 990/- rs for 5.2 grams which is the only con its too expensive. Though i prefer stocking up during the sale. 
  • Mac mineralize skin finish natural is must have when i travel. I love the natural looking coverage it gives. Its super bleadable and it sets makeup too well. 
  • Mac burgundy times 9 eyeshadow palette is my kind of neutrals. I love to carry this palette while travelling as its has shimmer and matte shadows. Many different look can be created. And the palette is tiny so doesnt take up much space.
  • Red is a must have in vanity and this colour is perfect scarlett O’Hara  by sugar. Its a statement red lipstick, a bright red u can wear anytime of the year and will look good on all skin tones. Its a lip crayon and comes with its own sharpner. I like carrying this along coz the shade is perfect for everyday wear. 

 These are my essential which i dont miss when i travel, let me know your essentials while you travel. And plz do leave a feedback on how i can improve my blogs as i am new to blogging world. 

    Lots of love,

    Sofia. 😘

    Love with The Balm

    Hi there!!!

    I got super excited when i heard that The balm cosmetic has launched in India with Mynykaa. I have been using the balm for a while now and i just love there products.Firstly they have an amazing packaging which i love and that attracts me more in buying the product, even the names are quirky.As its was not available in India earlier i use to purchase there products from dubai whenever i visited.I am not going to review each and every product coz there r tons of reviews article out there.And even these product has launched quiet long time ago.These are my favourites and my take on it.

           Well, the first thing i purchased from the balm was Meet Matt(e) Nude eyeshadow pallete.This pallete has an amazing pigmentation and the quality is really great,no fall outs.This pallete is truly for people who love matte nude eyeshadows.

           My second favorite is there mary-lou manizer its an highlighter.I love collecting highlighters and i had my eye on this for quite a long time.On my last visit to dubai i had to buy this. Its a perfect highlighter for all skin types .I will highly recommend this one of all.

    My picture is not doing justice,this is truly one of the best highlighter i used.I suck at clicking picture,i am very new to it ,so plz bare with me…

            My third in the list is another highlighter cum blush cum shadow its Hot Mama.As said by them it can be used as a shadow or a blush and i even use it as a highlighter.This is a perfect shade for summer,it gives this natural glow and i love that.

               This liquid lipstick in shade Adoring is my all time favorite.Let it be summer or day time i always land up using this if i am going out.This is truly an ox blood colour and goes very well on lips..Its quite drying though so i would suggest to apply a lip balm before this.I love using dark shade so i am ok with such colour but for people who are not into these kind of shade has many option to choose from.


          Last but not the least is again an eyeshadow pallete its the Nude ‘tude eyeshadow pallete.Now who doesnt like only matte nude but want one two shimmery shade can definelty opt for this one.To be honest i am not huge fan of this pallete but i kind of like few shades in it , so thought of including it here.The shade sexy and seductive are few of my favorites.


         Thanks to nykaa that I can purchase more of the balm product now being in india.I am not sure whether all the product are available there but to but any of these product You can head to http://www.nykaa.com. You can even check the prices there.


    Plz do leave a comment on which one you like the most and which one are you planning to buy.And even dont forget to guve your feedback .

    5 reasons you shld visit The LiL Flea

    Hi there!!!
    Last weekend I had been to this amazing and the happiest flea market in Mumbai, The Lil Flea at Jio
    garden Bandra Bkc. It was such a heartwarming experience and massive festival of shopping, food and
    music. As it’s again on 8th and 9th of April 2017, I thought of visiting there again. That place gave me a
    happy feeling and that made me share my thoughts here.

    Well said enough let me share with you guys five reasons why you should definitely visit this place 

    • Amazing Ambiance: This Place is divinely beautiful. Everything about this place was so different.
      The moment you step in, you can see amazing décor. Every corner has been beautifully set up,
      the fairy lights, the delicate tents; the sayings on different corners will surely brighten up the
      mood. The entrance itself is very promising that there is more to welcome you inside. The place
      is filled with joy and being there will surely make you feel for a moment that you are not in
      Mumbai… 
    •  Shopping: they have some 250 pop up shops from all over the country. From amazing dream
      catchers, to home décor, clothing, foot wear, and many more stuffs to shop. Some popup shops
      had quirky stuff that will surely make you a shopping spree. There is even a place for kids to
      play around so drop on your kids there while you go shopping spree. And even if not planning
      to buy, a window shopping will be a kind of therapy to the eyes… pretty stuffs do change
      moods!!!
    •  Mouth drooling food: They have a separate food corner and that part you surely don’t want to
      miss when you go there. There are many options to choose from Indian to Italian to Mexican
      and the mouthwatering desert. As I was running short of time and I had these stuffed kulcha
      there I couldn’t try anything more but this time when I go there ,I will make sure I don’t miss
      out on anything.  
    •  Music: There is always a live band playing and such a pleasure to sit and relax. A perfect way to
      spend your weekend. There are 12 live bands going to perform this weekend. After a long week
      of work and stress this will surely unwind.
    • Capture a picture : Now this is something that depends on person to person but if you are a
      freak like me when it comes to clicking picture, you should definitely go there coz on every
      corner you will surely find something to click a picture with.  

    So if u are in Mumbai don’t miss The Lil Flea which will surely make you feel happy and
    joyful vibe. Be there on 8th and 9th of April. There is an entry fees of 250 rs person

    Kurti love…

    Hi there!

    It’s almost summer in Mumbai and the unbearable heat is something I can’t run away from.so for this season I mainly opt for Cotton kurtis which are easy to style as well as its never out of fashion. I travel frequently for work by train so wearing kurtis is more comfortable as well. I believe fashion is something in which you are comfortable in. kurtis is a simple outfit which u can dress it up by adding on accessories or dress it down by just keeping it simple. I prefer simple because of the weather and that’s the kind of style I prefer yet, I keep it trendy by adding on few stuffs.

     

    All my kurtis are purchased from Westside store of brand Utsa1

    #for this look I opted a knee length kurti and basic dark jeans and the fun part of this outfit is the juttis I wore along with it .it has beautiful color detail in it and the tie around pompom knotting makes it stand out.

    2

    #for this look I opted a printed kurti. The color caught my eye its little different and I didn’t even have this kind of color in my wardrobe .I preferred wearing a red legging underneath and again wearing a pink jutti with it.This jutti is surely a style statement and can change the look of any outfit. I wore long jhumkas to complete the look.

    3

    # yellow is the best color to choose in summer .This kurti has a very basic print over it and I paired it with ankle length jeans and wore flats to make it more of a basic outfit. Just to add on I wore long jhumkas to complete the look.

    #last one not my kind of style but yes I do prefer for more casual look. Wore this short kurta again over a jean and to make it more comfy and casual I paired it with sneaker which are my favourite.

    PS. …Photography is not that great.i am working on it.lots of love . have a great day ahead and do leave a comment below about ur feedback or what kind of style you prefer.

    50 Shades of Nudes…

    OK! So by nudes I don’t mean truly nudes but pinky nudes. I just couldn’t resist the caption….:0

    saved 1

    My love for pinky nudes lipsticks is like deep true love. I have enough of lipsticks but I keep on adding more and more to my vanity. Even though I love experimenting with darker shade these kinds of shades will always remain my go to shade…

    Different shade looks different on every individual. So may be my kind of nude will look different on you. Some suggested nude by beauty bloggers washes me out.it makes me look like a zombie .well, I realized this after quite a long time after purchasing too many lipstick suggested by beauty gurus out there. I am sure many of us have done that..

    saved 3

    Now to my kind of nudes, these are my favorite shades .i always land up using them…

    #Nyx Liquid suede in Soft-Spoken:

    Now this shade is a perfect nude shade for me. It has a hint of pink brown which makes it a perfect shade suitable for all Indian skin type. I’m medium fair skin toned but it looks good on dusky skin tone as well. I will highly recommend this shade to all wheatish skin ladies out there.its a matte shade but very comfortable on lip.not too sticky and has creamy texture to it.

    shade 5

    #Dose of Colour in truffle:

    This has brown pink undertones to it, though it’s more on pinkier side but it’s will be more of nude for all the medium to fair and darker skin toned girls. It’s very matte and very very drying on lips so I will suggest moisturizing your lips well before applying.

    shade 7

    # Chambor in 156 (rose fresque):

    This shade is more of rosy pink than nude, but this is an everyday colour and surely my lips but better on me . So I consider this again to be a nude shade for me and for medium to darker skin toned people. Its again my go to shade and my second purchase as well.this is again a matte shade but not at all drying it does make cracks on lips visible but the shade is too good to hide that kind of flaw.shade 6

    #Chambor extreme wear matte liquid lipstick in 402:

    This a nude mauvy with hints of pink. When swatched on hand it looks pink but when applied on lips it’s a stunner, it’s a beautiful nudey pink shade. It will look much prettier on darker skin.As the name sugget it is matte,it stays long for good 8 hours but it does dry your lips after wearing it.

    shade 4

    #Wet n Wild spiked with rum:

    Now this shade is more of brown with a hint of red, but when applied it look nude on me specially in the day time and more of brown red in the artificial lights at night. This is not least favourite of all. Not my go to shade for sure.this is not matte nor glossy , its kind of semi matte.its doesn’t stay for long you surely have to reapply but even if you wont it leaves a wash of colour which looks pretty.

    shade 8

    I will highly recommend by trying any shade on before purchasing it coz all shade looks different on different skin type, but just buying because someone else suggested is truly wrong .i have done that mistake wont recommend you guys to do the same.

    SOFIA.

    PS plz do give your feedback I am very new to the blogging world. Lots of love :0
