Quick Make-up Look for School/College (Summer Edition)

Hey Guys!


Tomorrow isn’t weekend, yet I am awake and watching “Pyaar Ka Punchnama”. This movie is so unbelievably entertaining that I can watch it again and again and still not get bored of it. Anyways, since summer is here, I usually don’t wanna invest into elaborate makeup steps as sweat grosses me out and my face is oily. In summers the easiest makeup I’d do would be to use a compact, fill in my eyebrows and use a matte lipstick.


So today, I shall update you about budget friendly products that can be used for creating a quick makeup look, especially for beginners. Let’s begin-



·         I start off on a cleansed face and prep the skin by applying sunscreen. Then it’s time for the base. I apply few dots of foundation, exclusively to areas wherein I have acne scars. For summers, you can ditch the foundation and use a good BB cream by brands such as The Body Shop, Lakme or Garnier. Use whatever caters to your skin type because makeup is gonna ruin everything if you use any product that isn’t designed especially for your skin type. Currently I haven’t finished the Spawake BB cream so that’s the one I use and for foundation I always pick up the Essence Stay All Day Foundation (INR 499/-) which thankfully does not make my skin look fake. For setting the base, I use Maybelline Clear Glow All in One Fairness compact.


·         Next up, I use the Lotus Colour Kick kajal (INR 199/-) on my eyelids. I do not line my waterline as it makes my eyes watery and it somehow makes my eyes look small. Another roll on kajal that I really liked is Faces Magnet Eyes. Both these kajals have great colour payoff and does not budge away easily.
·         


·         Then I grab my Maybelline The Nudes Palette (INR 899/-) and use the colour which is in first row and second last from the right, for bronzing up my face. This eye-shadow colour goes perfectly well for my skin tone, without making it look as if I’ve got mud on my face. 



·         For giving slight colour to my cheeks, I use Maybelline Cheeky Glow (INR 299/-) in the shade “Creamy Cinnamon”. I don’t like to look clownish; hence I like to restrict my blush shade to peachy shades.
     

       For lips, in summer I like to use a matte lip colour. The best matte liquid lipstick that I found and which is also low in budget is- Incolor Matte Me Liquid lipstick (INR 250-280). 

Voila, the look is complete! J

Comment down below what is your essential makeup product for summers that you can’t skip at all.

Until Next time,
Take Care :) :)

My Cutesy Stash - Miniso Haul Unleash!

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Side Story - I intentionally changed the font of this blog post; reason as such is nothing but I decided to break-free from the monotonous font type. But unfortunately, the font decided to bug me later on so I ended up with the same comforting font. 
In today's blog post, I will be sharing with you all my recent haul from the store of Miniso. For people who haven't encountered a Miniso outlet as of yet, Miniso is a well known Japanese brand which brings to you a lot of quirky and cute stuff which is reasonably priced and none of your money will go wasted, trust me! They have an amazing collection of utility products from the genre of beauty, kitchenware, stationery, electronics, accessories, etc. Moreover, the prices of these products start from INR 150 and the maximum, I believe, is around INR 1000, that too for PU bags. 


Recently, I happen to discover another Miniso Delhi store which was mere 2 metro stations away from where I live.…

3 Best Toners for Combination to Oily/Acne Prone Skin

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Today’s post is an in-depth discussion on toners in general, what’s been trending lately and inexpensive toners that are available in case you have a skin type that synchronizes with mine. Now, it’s as hard to classify my skin into one genre as a Myer’s personality test’s results. In short, probably those given two options won’t be enough to understanding my personality. Anyways, let’s cut short weird examples and focus on to the topic that has been raised. Naturally, to initiate further this discussion, we need to discuss what a toner is and why we need one in our lives. 

WHAT IS A TONER? Male or female, we are entering a no-gender biased zone. The concept behind toners is that the facial skin, even after the process of cleansing, is left with trails of pollution, bacteria, dust or for that fact, some makeup. Moreover, the harshness of chemical components endowed within the cleanser may affect the pH level of your skin. So in order to revers…

Cute Box March 2018 Edition - Women’s Era | Unboxing & Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Is anyone out here, bitten by the bug which is commonly known as the hoarding disorder? Did I just hear a ‘yes’? Well, you’re not alone in this because you’ve got my back, girl. Be it lipsticks, makeup products, skincare, cute packaging, empty bottles or containers, nail paints, stationery and what not; I love storing them all. My mind would weave a scenario wherein I’d really need these. There are times when I would assume that a particular container will be using for some DIY project. But that hardly happens. Currently, I’m thinking about making a terrarium. They are hell expensive on websites and I ain’t going to spend that much on mere plants. If I do manage to create one, I’d probably also make a blog post dedicated exclusively on that. Today we shall be unboxing an affordable jewellery subscription box which has been available in India since few months.
So as I was saying, jewellery is bae! Be it rings, bracelets or earrings; you will…
