Something fun!


This look was inspired by an argument over the phone. Sounds strange but I had an argument on the phone with someone and then got mad and hung up the phone. In my irritation, I wanted to go wash my face and go to sleep because it was late at night and I caught sight of my makeup stash in my open cupboard and I just started pulling stuff out and came up with this. Now in all honesty, it just came out of my imagination but now that I look at it I feel like I have seen this somewhere, retained it in my memory and have now been inspired by it! 

Oh well, the moral of the story - try and do a look when you are irritated and you may come up with something awesome! LOL!

I used:

  • Jade green eye pencil from Avon
  • NYX jumbo eye pencil in Yellow
  • Inglot e/s - 494 ds (purple), AMC 60(yellow)
  • MAC pigment in Golden lemon
  • MAC e/s black tied.
  • Ben Nye pigment in Turquoise
  • Maybelline Great Lash Mascara
  • Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Zero 

Here are some pics! 

I added a tiny wing to the outer corner just to see how it would look!

So this was my late-night, irritated look! What do you think?? Thanks for checking it out!

Hey All!!

Whenever I do red-golds-browns in any combination, I never end up posting those pictures because the pictures just NEVER come out right. I am never able to capture the hues and the shades of reds and browns and that look never becomes a post. 

I have finally managed to get decent pics of my look that I did and even yet I do not think they do justice to the actual colours! Oh well, practice makes perfect right?

I have used:

  • Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean
  • NYX e/s in Redhead, Walnut
  • Inglot P407, DS 465
  • Maybelline Great Lash mascara

So hope you like!! Tell me what you think!

I'm back with a blue and gold look for you!


Sorry for the lack of posts my friends. I have been devoid of inspiration plus very busy with work. Here is a new blue and gold look for you all!! I have used a blue-gray colour over a black base and it ended up giving me a beautiful dark blue which I loved. 

Here is what I used:

  • NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Black Bean
  • NYX e/s in Space
  • Inglot e/s in 430 P
  • Maybelline great lash mascara

Here are the pics!

So, what do you all think? I really like the blue I have created. And I love it with the gold as well. It's a nice smokey eye - a departure from the traditional black or gray smokey eye eh?

Thanks for stopping by and see you all next time!

Some storage options

Hi everyone! 

This post is especially dedicated to my Chennai followers who are few but very valuable. I recently found a new shop that sells all kinds of storage items such as baskets, boxes, containers of different shapes and sizes. It's a small store called "SAMA" and it is located on CP Ramaswamy road parallel to where the flyover ends. It's next to the newly opened Apollo clinic on that very same road. 

I checked out the store yesterday and was delighted to find a few things to store and organize my makeup in. I must mention that quite a bit of the stuff in that shop was very reasonable priced. So here is what I picked up.

1. 1 set of plastic storage drawers priced at Rs. 250. 

  • The drawers are about 8-10 inches high so they are not very huge. 
  • I think they will work great for e/s, eyepencils, lipsticks etc. 
  • Each individual drawer is about 1 inch deep and extends about 6 inches. 
  • The width is around 4 inches (I hope this gives you a good idea of dimensions.)
  • There are a total of 4 drawers.

2. 1 set of storage trays priced at Rs. 150.

  • These come as a set of 3. 
  • The trays are around 2 inches deep, 2 inches wide and 10 inches long. 
  • You can use them for blushes, compacts, lotions etc.

Here are some pics! 

With  my cell phone, to give you idea of size!

If you get an opportunity, do check it out! I can't wait to transfer some of my makeup into this! 

So see you all next time! Thanks!
