My Everyday Makeup Bag Essentials

Hi, guys! Hope you all are doing good. Today’s post is going to be my everyday makeup bag essentials- things that I carry in my makeup bag whenever I am out of the door. Packaging your makeup bag is quite a task. You need to stop yourself from overpacking as your makeup bag should fit in your handbag that is already overstuffed with sweat block wipes, sunglass cases and umbrellas. I have a certain policy for my everyday makeup bag. First of all, things that I would carry inside my makeup bag has to be my absolute favourites. I don’t carry experimental products in my bag. Secondly, my makeup bag must have fewer products but there should be a balance of makeup and skincare. Lastly, my makeup bag contents barely change. Maybe I replace the lipsticks depending on my mood or the compact depending on the season, but that’s it. […]

Hello all, I am here again with a brand new post. Recently I was selected for a wonderful activity by Blogadda in association with Lakme School of Style and #Fame. I was aware of such a beautiful initiative where ‘the famous bachelor’ and extremely talented film director, Karan Johar is the editor-in-chief but I had not checked out their YouTube channel so far.

Pink Amour| Soft Romantic Day Look for Valentine’s Day

Hello all! Today I have come up with a Valentine’s Day special eye look which is very simple to achieve and very wearable too. I am a totally no-eyeshadow girl. I mostly apply kajal on my upper and lower lash line and step out just like that. But, it’s Valentine’s Day, so the makeup needs to be special, isn’t it? I chose to create an easy-peasy look for the occasion as you don’t want to spend a lot of time in your eye-makeup.  ** I have done the makeup on my right eye only.

Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner in Black. 3. Florelle True Khol Pencil 4. Maybelline The Hyper Curl Volume Express […]
