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

MamaEarth: Shampoo + Conditioner Review | Happy Heads & No More Tangles

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
We all love our tresses! In order to sustain a healthy crown of hair, we keep on hunting for homemade DIY recipes or a shampoo that resolves the prolonged hair fall problem. Is it merely me who has been seeing a lot of hair fall since a year or two? I’ve altered my shampoo to figure out what is the actual cause for the same and it appears as if the inherent genes and my eating pattern is what causes a lot of shedding of hair. Recently, I tried the Mamaearth’s shampoo and conditioner duo which I believe was the part of their Anti-Hair Fall kit which is priced at INR 999. The kit intrigued me a lot and I’m glad I got to try out two products from that kit so that I don’t end up spending a thousand bucks. If you’re wondering how these products fared for me, stay tuned and keep on reading!

Sugar Ace of Face Foundation Stick in 25 Macchiato - Swatches & Review

Shedding away all my laziness 😂😂
Here I am today, scribbling a blog post on one of my recent makeup purchases from the brand Sugar Cosmetics. In case you guys don’t know, I was awestruck by makeup hoarding addiction again and ended up buying more than what I initially intended. Although I had my eyes glued on their Smudge Me Not Lipstick in the shade Wine & Shine (Sangria), I also managed to pick up their much-hyped Ace of Face Foundation Stick! This particularly base product was first launched with 6 shades but now they have introduced 22 shades that will go absolutely well with almost all Indian skin tone. And no, that isn’t just a false claim like another well known Indian brand which we’ve seen since our childhood.
Let’s dive into the review without any digressions!

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.

Few days ago, I was sent a product selection email from the team of Fab Bag. Therein, a tota…
