What’s in my Makeup Kit: Back to College Edition

Hello girls,

Yesterday night, it rained here in Delhi. And this morning, I just wanna rush to take a bath as its gone back to being humid. Unfortunately, this weather is especially allotted to be the Back to College Season. For some of you, it’s gonna be exciting as schools were a metaphor of restrictions. School uniforms, no nail paint, strict regulations, etc. The other remaining, it’s again going to get all monotonous. I have begun to detest this semester as its comparatively longer and shifting classes plus travelling in this weather seriously melts away the beautiful you. My biggest concern is about wearing jeans in the morning post baths; I just don’t feel comfortable that way in summers; extra sensitive perhaps. *LOL*

Every girl is accompanied to college or work place along with her small vanity kit which confidently smirks and says “I got your back girl”. *WINK* Be it minimalistic, containing kajal and tinted lip balm or if you are while leaving off your doors like- “What if I end up meeting a friend post college hours and I can’t do just with a compact and I wanna pack this lip color, and this; oh how can I leave this one as well?

So without further adieu, let’s jump into the post and see what really can go down in there for creating a useful makeup kit. Also, it’s not necessary that you’d pack these all; you can simply recreate it as per your choice.

 BB/CC cream
Foundation is definitely not everyday thing for most of us and when you’ve got a heck lot of classes for the day; you’d rather spend few extra minutes to your precious sleep than apply moisturizer plus a foundation. BB creams with one go eliminate dryness and evens out the complexion. Fortunately, they blur out scars and you can leave off your face appear imperfect making it evident that you don’t wanna attend a wedding soon afterwards. hahaha
My pick- <Spawake BB Cream, Ponds BB cream or Garnier BB cream>

Compact powder
I’ve been to Delhi University and travelling within Metro or DTC busses gets you drenched into sweat before you’ve marched into the gates of the college. Compact powder removes shine and sweat of the face and makes it matte.
< Maybelline Clear Glow Compact or Superfresh White Compact>

Eyeliner/Kajal pencil
Kajal remains the first makeup item that we’ve delved into since our younger days. Twist up kajal/ eyeliner pencil can be used on the waterline as well as for tight lining the upper lid.
< Lotus ColorKick Kajal or Faces Magnetic Eyes Kajal>

Eyebrow Pencil
If you’ve got no time for accentuating your features via makeup then you can simply define your eyebrows as it helps in framing up the face.
<Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo>

Blush becomes a necessity for too pale girls as it adds on some colour to their face.
<Maybelline Cheeky Glow in ‘Creamy Cinnamon’>

Lipstick/ lip lacquer
Lipsticks are the coolest part about makeup. Look out for budget friendly lipsticks or lip lacquers and they can also be used as a blush. Summers are all about matte lip colors.
<Incolor Matte me, Miss Claire Soft Matte Cream or Elle 18 Matte lipsticks>

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…
