Easy Daytime Look for Valentine's Day || Wearable Pink Smoky Eyes|
Hello guys, as we all know Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Like every year, I am here again with another easy makeup look for Valentine’s Day. When it comes to makeup I prefer soft and subtle look instead of anything heavy or dramatic. Be it daytime or nighttime, I prefer minimal makeup. Even my boyfriend loves to see me with minimum makeup. So, I thought of doing something that is soft yet glamorous, very apt if you have planned a daytime date with your beau. This look is also great for both day and night if you love non-glamorous, fresh and neutral makeup. I have created this look keeping the beginners in mind. Let’s begin-

Products used-

Lotus Herbals Ecostay Nourishing Foundation (Used in this look)
Mememe Flawless Concealer
Maybelline White Superfresh Compact
L’Oreal True Match Blush in Rosy Cheeks (Used in this look)
Sleek Face Contour Kit

ELF Eyelid Primer
Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette (Salted Caramel, Marzipan, White Chocolate)
BH Cosmetics Day & Night Palette (Deep matte brown shade, Pale peachy pink shade)

Lancome Hypnose Mascara

Wearable Pink Smoky Eyes

I started off with applying foundation to my face just to make my skin look even-toned. Then just jumped straight on to my eye makeup before concealer. I applied an eyelid primer first so that my eyeshadows last longer. Then I set the primer with some compact powder. You can apply any light coloured eyeshadow instead of the compact powder.

Next, I applied a warm tone brown shade (Salted Caramel) from my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. This shade acted as a transition colour. Then I took a deep brown shade from my BH Cosmetics Day & Night Palette to a crease brush and placed it on the outer corner of my eyes. I blended out the deep brown eyeshadow with a circular motion with the same crease brush leaving the inner part of the eyes bare. I made sure to apply most of the product to the outer corner and then I dragged whatever left on the brush to the inner portions of my eyes. It helped in defining the eyes more. Then I applied a pale peachy pink shade to the inner parts of the eyes with a flat eyeshadow brush in a patting motion. If you have darker eyelids then you can use dampen eyeshadow brush to apply your pale, light shade eyeshadow. A damp brush will ensure good colour payoff. I highlighted the inner corners of my eyes with a shimmery pink shade called Marzipan from my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette and also highlighted my browbone areas with a shimmery champagne shade called White Chocolate from the same palette.
Next, I lined my upper lashline with a brown kohl pencil and smudged it out using an angular brush. I dragged the line with a brush in a manner that it creates a small, diffused wing at the end. This diffused wing made the look very sultry and created a pseudo-smoky effect without going for a full-fledged smoky eye look. I finished my eye makeup with curling my lashes and applying generous coats of volumizing mascara to my lashed to make them stand out. You can also apply false lashes but I skipped it as I wanted this look to be really natural and wearable.

Finally, I applied concealer to hide my dark circles and other imperfections. Then I set everything with the same compact powder. Lastly, I contoured and highlighted my features with the Sleek Face Contour Palette and applied a matte lip colour.

As I always say, you don’t need to apply makeup to present yourself to your love. Be yourself, even if it do not require a perfect dress or a flawless makeup. Being confident is most important. Love is all about accepting each other with all the flaws, isn’t it? Happy Valentine’s Day!

I hope you found this mini-tutorial helpful and easy to follow. Go ahead, re-create this look and don’t forget to share your looks with me on FacebookTwitterInstagram or Snapchat (sayantinee).

Hey all! How are you? If you follow me on Facebook or Instagam you might know that I lost my maternal grandfather a few weeks ago. Blogging took a backseat since then as I was totally busy in attending his funeral and other rituals. After spending almost a month at my maternal grandparents’ home, I am finally back. I promise to blog more often from now. Now, let’s talk about this post. A fellow blogger and friend, Shreoshe from Bong Beauty Palette, asked me to collaborate with her in an activity called ‘Twice As Nice’ by Garnier. I readily agreed to her proposal because of two things that flashed in my mind at that time. First, I had never done a collaboration post with anyone before and second, the name Twice As Nice impressed me a lot.

We decided to combine the topics we mostly talk about in our blogs, like, she mostly reviews skincare items and my blog is full of makeup items reviews and tutorials. So, we are going to talk about how makeup and skincare works together to make you beautiful and how they are twice as nice!

Shreoshe will tell you how daily skincare is must to make your skin happy and healthy forever. This is what she has to say-

As the temperature rises high in summer, our skin has to face the harsh sunlight every day. Adding to that our skin feels oily, sweaty and thus attracts a lot of dirt in summer, not to forget the suntan and blemishes that joins in! Here are some handy tips to keep your skin healthy and radiant during summer:
  • Keep yourself hydrated. Drink 8-10 glasses of water each day and carry water bottle while you go out. 
  • Use sunscreen before going out in the morning. Apply the sunscreen at least 30 minutes before you leave the house. 
  • Use natural toner at home like cucumber juice, store it in fridge and use it whenever your skin feels dull or tired. 
  • Cleanse your face twice a day with a good face wash that will remove dirt and oil effectively. 
  • To get rid of tan, mix gram flour with yogurt and apply the paste all over the tanned area. Wash it off after 20 minutes. 
  • Use shower gels and bath salts to get a glowing skin. 
  • Have a good sleep to reduce stress.

Now after the very important skincare regime, you need some more pampering. Let’s allow your makeup products to take that responsibility. I will show you how to do a very easy, fresh and effortless makeup for this summer. Follow the five easy steps to achieve the look that I created-

  • Prepare your base with any BB cream/ tinted moisturizer and concealer you like. Don’t forget to apply a matte and sweat-proof compact on top of that. 
  • To add a natural flush to your cheeks apply some pink/coral blush to the apples of your cheeks. 
  • Tightline your eyes with a black kohl. If you have very oily lower waterline like I do then skip tightlining your lower waterline. 
  • Curl your lashes and apply a good amount of mascara. 
  • Apply your favourite summery pink lipstick.

~My Take on the Garnier Pure Active Duo~

The Garnier Pure Active duo is basically a face-wash and a scrub, a combo that is #TwiceAsNice. We all know that scrubbing your face at least twice a week is very good for our skin as it removes all the dirt and dead-cells that tend to clog our pores and causes breakouts. The Garnier Pure Active Exfoliating Face Scrub is a creamy scrub filled with apricot seed powder. The scrubbing particles are finely milled so that they don’t feel harsh on your skin. This mild scrub gently scours away all the impurities from your skin without making it dry.

Garnier Pure Active Neem Purifying Face Wash

The Garnier Pure Active Neem Purifying Face Wash is rich in all the benefits of Neem as you can tell. It’s a gel based face wash that lathers well but doesn’t make your skin feel stretchy or dry after the wash. It removes the extra oiliness from your skin which is best for me in this season. It also deep cleanses your skin to remove all the dirt from your pores. I love the smell of both the products. They have very refreshing, fruity and summery fragrance in them. I love how they make my skin feel soft and fresh. I have been using them for a week now and so far I am impressed by their effectiveness. I can share my final opinion about the duo only after using them for a couple of weeks. The duo is worth trying out. Have you guys tried the Garnier Pure Active duo yet?

I hope you like this #TwiceAsNice post. I would love if you check out Shroeshe’s take on this topic. If you loved this post then don’t forget to share with your friends. I will be back with another post this weekend. Till then be safe and keep smiling!

Hi all, how was your day? Mine was a boring one. No one likes to study all day!

Anyways, today I have a very colourful post for you all. It’s March already, the transition time from Spring to Summer. Moreover, tomorrow is Bengal’s version of Holi. So, I thought of creating a look that is soft with a pop of colour. I chose the colours pink, peach and teal for this look. Have a look-

Products used-


  • Lakme CC Cream
  • Kyolan Derma Colour Camouflage D-30
  • Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer
  • NYX Blush in Bourgeois Pig
  • Lakme 9 to 5 Flawless Matte Complexion Compact
  • E.L.F. Eye-lid Primer
  • Beauty UK Eyeshadow Palette- Soho (Used the 1st row, 2nd Shade from the left)
  • Maybelline Colossal Liner
  • Maybelline Colossal Kajal
  • Inglot AMC Gel Eyeliner- 87
  • Maybelline Hyper Curl Mascara
  • Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick- Thrilling Pink
  • Maybelline High Shine Lip Gloss- Electric Shock

How to Achieve the Look- 
Step 1: I started with my face first. I prepped my face with the Lakme CC Cream and then after color correcting my dark circles with the Kryolan Derma Color Camouflage cream, I concealed the under-eyes area and finished it off with a compact powder. Then I used a matte pink blush to the apples of my cheeks slightly dragging it diagonally. 
You can apply a highlighter too, but as my skin has started getting very oily, I skipped it. 
Step 2: Prep your eyes using a eyelid primer to prevent the eye-shadows from creasing. To make everything simple and short, I have used only one shadow to the lids. I took the peach-y shade from the Beauty UK palette, you can use any peach eye-shadow to achieve this look. After the eye-shadow, I then lined my upper lash-line with a liquid liner as thin as possible. Then, I tight-lined my eyes and applied a few coats of mascara only to the upper lashes. With the help of a stiff angled brush, I then lined my lower lash line with a teal coloured gel/cream eye-liner. This gives a sudden lift to the look.

Step 3: I applied a soft pink matte lipstick and then topped it off with a bright pink gloss. If you want the look to be less glossy, you can always blend the lip colours with the help of your finger.

That’s all, peeps! I hope you liked the look. The whole idea of this post is to share my ideas with you. You can always change the shades to create a whole new look as per your liking. If you ever re-create this look, don’t forget to share your pictures with me. I would like to showcase them on my social media. I will be back again very soon with a new post for you. Till then stay safe and keep smiling! Happy Holi in advance! 
Save water, be kind to animals and celebrate the festival of colours safely and sincerely. Lots of love.
