FOTD: An Easy Day Look

Hi Everyone!

My last post was about a weekend getaway to Amritsar. It's a Temple town so I thought it best to sport a traditional, yet smart look for the day around town. This is a universal day look, whether you are out for coffee with friends, at work or shopping.

 I have used a bare minimum of products to create this look.

Products Used:
  1. Olay Total Effects Day Cream
  2. Za True White Foundation OC 30
  3. City Color Cheek Stain in Mauve
  4. Himalaya Kajal
  5. Elle 18 Liquid Eyeliner in Black
  6. Oriflame Powershine Lipstick in Cocoa Burst

Spring is in the air and Valentine's day is round the corner. I love soft, muted make-up for this time of the year. I had actually worn this look when I attended a friend's classical dance concert. But this look can be worn for a date night if you changed your hair and wore a dress.

I paired mauve eyes with pomegranate lips and pale pink cheeks.

All products used for this look are budget products.

Products used for this look:
  1. Bodyography Primer
  2. ColorBar BB Cream in
  3. Chambor Light and Sheer Skin Highlighter
  4. Faces Vanishing Act Concealer
  5. Maybelline New York Dream Touch Blush in #07

  2. Maybelline  New York Diamond Glow by Eye Studio in Lilac Mauve #06 (Eye Shadow Palette)
  3. Elle 18 Liquid Eyeliner in  black

LOTD: Soft,Romantic, Spring/Valentine's Day Look

Hey Everyone!

I can smell spring in the air! And to celebrate that I have put together an easy soft, romantic look that can be worn during the day. You can even sport this on your Valentine's Day date!

I have paired a gold eye with soft coral lips and a hint of rose on the cheeks.

Products Used for this look:

  1. Bodyography Primer
  2.  Lakme CC Cream in Bronze
  3. Chambor Light and Sheer Skin Highlighter
  4. Faces Vanishing Act Concealer
  5. City Color Cheek Stain
  1. LaSplash Eye Primer
  2. Beauty UK Eyeshadow Collection (I have used the highlighter, Gold and Bronze shades)
  3.  Florelle Kajal Eye Pencil
  4. Maybelline New York Volum Express Mascara
  1. Oriflame Very Me Lip Crayon in Coral
  2. Maybelline New York Lip Polish in Glam 3

I did not use a liquid/gel eyeliner to maintain the overall soft look.

I have kept the look really soft and dewy. I did not use a powder since I wanted to avoid the matte look so early on on spring (there will be enough time for that in the long Indian summers).

 So what do you think of this look? Let me know in the comments section below!

Stay Beautiful!
