Diwali Makeup Tips & Tricks!

Hello Readers (:

I love this time of the year! City wrapped up in lights and sky full of fireworks <3
It’s like so many festivals are lined up together and generates excitement with the arrival of each. You meet people whom you have not seen in ages! Besides, who doesn’t like munching salted dry fruits? :D Keeping that little talk aside, let’s jump onto makeup tips & tricks essential for Diwali!

   ·   Let your base be stronger: Every grand monument stands straight with a good devotion of time upon the base. Same goes for a festive makeup look. On usual days I love it when slight imperfection peeps through the makeup. High coverage is what I avoid. But celebrations do call upon perfection! If concealers aren’t your thing, just dab a little foundation over marks or acne and smooth it out with a finger. Brush or sponge would move away the product hence finger suggested. Don’t reach out for an extra pale foundation. Some pictures might be clicked with flash on and you don’t wanna rock a ghastly look, until that’s what you’re going for! Early Halloween :’D Also, ditch any makeup base that has SPF. It ends up providing a white cast.

   ·    Bronze/Contour: Foundation makes the face appear flat and that does highlight the largeness of the face, if you have a square shaped face, like mine. You don’t really need additional products for it. Try looking for an eyeshadow that goes well on your face for adding in some dimension, without making it appear muddy. For contouring, you can use any soft cream brown lipstick. I use Maybelline’s Color Show ‘Mysterious Mocha’ and then set it with Maybelline’s The N*des Palette taupe brown eyeshadow as a bronzer.

   ·    Highlight: If you’ve newly been bitten by the bug of highlight, then all you gotta do is use our shimmery pearly eyeshadows wisely! In case you have one of those gorgeous olive skin tone, you can go ahead with some shimmery eyeshadow with mute golden colour.  
   ·    Eyebrows: Filled in eyebrows really make a huge difference. Mine are always kept slightly thick so they need extra grooming or else the hair strands would fight using all their will, swaying in every possible direction. You can to an extent alter your eyebrows shape and work upon those things that your threading or plucking fails to achieve! I like to draw my arch a little higher. *Wink*

   ·    Eyeshadow: Some eyeshadows, especially glittery ones, fail to provide a lot of colour intensity when used on eyelids. Within the packaging they might look all good but on application they give only little pigmentation. That’s when the wrestler gets in the ring! Use your damp fingers, swirl it in and then pack the eyeshadow onto the lids. Also, use concealer beneath for neutralizing darkness around the eyes. This would help the eyeshadow colour to pop up.
   ·    Lip Colour: Make your lipsticks last long by setting them with powder. If you want to tone down the intensity of a lipstick then apply the powder directly onto the lips. But otherwise, you can use a tissue, place it onto the lips and then tap it off with some powder. Lipstick Sealer aren’t easily available in India, that too at an affordable price so baby powder does it’s trick and you’re good to go! *Wink*

   ·    Patches post makeup: In case the brush’s friction against the cheek while makeup application leaves off your face slightly patchy, spray in the end some thermal spring water and it’s gonna set everything up, giving a fine layer of hydration but without oiliness. If you don’t have that, Gulabjal of any brand will do!

And that’s it for today! Enjoy your Diwali (:

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!

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.

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