First Attempt @ Smokey Eye Makeup Look


Hello readers,
Welcome to my Blog :)

It’s been such a long time since I am a proud owner of Maybelline the N*des Palette. (Reviewed here- http://lyfabubble.blogspot.in/2015/12/maybellinethe-nudes-palette-hey-guys.html)
 I don’t know why, but until yesterday, I failed to see a black eyeshadow sitting there in the second row right corner. Perhaps, I was too mesmerized by taupey brown and two variants of gold that the plain black went unnoticed. On its discovery, the first thing that came to my mind was to try on a smokey eye look. I am no makeup professional, so if I managed to do it, then it’s definitely an easy beginner’s Smokey Eye Makeup Look. So let’s start, shall we?

  1) Prep your eyelid by dotting some foundation/concealer/eyeshadow primer. I’ve used Makeup Revolution Matte Concealer Stick in the shade 01- Fairest. Then lightly dust some compact powder so that the eyshadows can be blended easily.
   
   2)  To increase the intensity of a black eyeshadow, I first used Incolor Colour Crayon Creme (reviewed here- http://lyfabubble.blogspot.in/2016/06/incolor-colour-crayon-creme-e-01-in.html ) in black colour and started by putting the crayon on half of my eyelid and then smudging it out with Vega Smudger Brush.

  3)   Next, I used a dark brown eyeshadow from the Maybelline the N*des Palette at just below the crease area to blend the black into brown and soften the edges. In the crease I used the taupey brow colour from the same palette. This would further soften the dark brown and help in providing softness to the black eyeshadow that we used on the eyelid. The idea is to keep the colour intensity darkest near the eyelashes and as it moves towards the crease, the colour goes to a lighter spectrum.

  4)  I used the first eyeshadow colour from the N*des Palette for highlighting my inner corners and using it at eyebrow bone. You can use your eyeliner pencil again to line the upper eyelids.

  5)  Lastly, use a mix of black and brown eyeshadow and line your waterline and smudge it slightly to balance the smokiness of upper eyelids.


  6)  Top it off with mascara and you’re good to go.  *WINK* 



P.S. for blending eyeshadow I’ve used Tinge Eyeshadow Blender Brush. (Reviewed here-


Until Next Time,
Take Care <3

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…
