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

Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask - Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Apparently, there are lots on skincare brands which are available internationally and I’m yet to try them out. Some of these brands, enclosed within my wish list include The Body Shop, The Faces Shop, Clinique, etc. Thankfully, Nykaa was running an offer on The Faces Shop skincare range wherein you could grab a full-sized freebie product. While I was surfing the catalogue, I encountered the “self-heating” mask which kept me intrigued enough to add it to my cart. I kid you not, there have been times when I’ve legit done window shopping online as well! 😃😄 I see trillion of things and later I’m like – “Do I really need this?”
And the mind always answers – “Of course not, girl!” 😂
A lot of the times, I force myself to hear the sensible talk of my mind. But sometimes, the heart takes over and it springs in joy to say “Woah! That’s too pristine to be denied”. This is exactly how I ended up purchasing Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask
So…

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.…

Fab Bag August 2018 "Own the Glam" Unboxing & Review

Surprise is the greatest gift which life can grant us.
Do you like surprises? I bet, you can’t say no to that.
Surprises are one of those quickest means of breaking the monotonous patterns of our lives. When I come back home from work, finding a courier onto my bedside table is what pumps up my excitement level. And this is exactly what happened on the evening of 31st of July. I kinda had a hunch that I’d receive my fab bag earlier this month, but getting it before the month actually starts, feels amazing! So without more jibber-jabber, let’s begin with the Fab BagAugust 2018unboxing.

Theme of the Month: Own the Glam When I think of the phrase “own the glam”, my mind draws an imagery of a glamorous girl. Therefore, I interlinked the theme with my expectations of having makeup products.
The Process of Product Selection: As expected, we have one of star products from the brand Sugar Cosmetics! 😍😍
Few days ago, I was sent a product selection email from the team of Fab Bag. Therein, a tota…
