Contouring & Highlighting Made Easy with #LakmeSchoolOfStyle for #fame

Girls Girls Girls.. Who are a fan of Kim Kardashian Makeup ? I can see many of you nodding heads in approval. But ever wondered how she got that super sculpted look and the way she highlights her features? Also, did you ever find her face chubby looking? well, no ! Her face always looks slim.
Anyway getting into the point, I am myself a huge fan of Kim K's Makeup and I cannot think of a single flaw. I have a round face and it looks more fat in pictures than reality. I found a technique to pose sideways to avoid it but I cannot stick to this trick always. So I thought of changing the way how my face looks and I then found out the terms “Contouring & Highlighting"
I wanted to know more on the technique and referred so many youtube videos but I feel every video has some sort of an issue that disappointed me at the end. It's like, most of the videos are done by the fair white skinned girls who's list of products or the steps seem not matching with my skin and requirements. Else, they use the makeup brands that are not available in Indian Market.
I was still in search of a good youtube video that is meant for Indian skintone and that use Indian Brands to create the look and I also wanted a video which is simple to understand and easy to achieve for beginners like me.

Through my search, I found a video that I feel it's truly meant for me and I feel so happy. The video consisted of the simple steps that can create a sculpted look using the Lakmè Face Makeup products. I must say that I truly enjoyed the video and I really loved her hair and eye makeup. Thanks Sahibba for making this amazing video look so easy to create.
The video was made by my favourite makeup brand Lakmè and they started with a series of makeup,fashion,hair and many more videos to help the girls like me and make things easy for us.
I couldn't stop myself but watch their other videos as well. I even loved their Hairstyles for Short hair which is again meant for me :D
Both the videos are made by the very famous Sahibba K. Anand who is a renowned blogger and in house vlogger for Lakmè School Of Style .
here is the video

I missed three of the total 15 shades,the SA couldn't find them so I missed out Mauve Fix,Pink Me Up, Pink Glam
Focusing on the existing swatches,
I have clicked these with my cellphone so kindly ignore the quality. But I am sure that the swatches are close to the original shade and I am dusky. I am NC 42 in MAC.

The second set of 6 Lipstick Swatches:

The lipstick shades that I have swatched here are
Crimson Touch
Maroon Magic
Coral Flare
Rose Bloom
Coco Shot
Burgundy Affair
Red Flames
Red Rush
Plum Shell
Peach Out
Pink Caress
Tangrine Lush
Mini Review:
LAKMÉ ABSOLUTE SCULPT STUDIO HI-DEFINITION MATTE LIPSTICKS are highly pigmented and are not drying. The shades are gorgeous. The range has covered almost all the colour families from reds,oranges,coral,pinks and brown. The price is ok but could have been a lesser price for a drugstore brand. However, you get so much product that I am sure that it would last really long.

My favorite shades are : Plum Shell, Maroon Magic and Coco Shot.

Did you try out these Lipsticks?

What is your favorite shade?

How I Style my New Hair Style ft Lakme Salon #HairIsFashion

To start off,  I do not want to say so much because, you can actually check My Hair Makeover by Clicking the heading itself :D
I was happy and I was super happy that I finally got highlights. I have always loved them and I have had them few years ago but not on my crown but to the sides. But those days were the best days of my healthy hair and once I started experimenting with chemicals and Smoothening damaged my hair to the most. Please do not mind the gaps in my hair I am working on it. Planning to get some surgical help too. If interested, do let me know in the comments below. Fine fine,, No serious talks. But my hair was super cool to look at and I had only one motto. Show Off my hair :D 
Whenever  I wanted to style it, I used to style in a way that my highlights are visible. To add, I am a very lazy person and I can not use all the serums or hair sprays and not even a hair drier. So, I am going to show you how I actually style my hair like. It is my everyday Hair Style.

Colorbar True Shine Lip Gloss in Fab
I am yet to review this one. This is from my fav brand "Colorbar". This can not really be included here for the pigmentation but the fact is, it is a transparent gloss with reddish sheen and glitters. This stays on forever. It makes lips look full and doesn't really bleed if you wear it over any lipstick.
My Rating 3.5/5 
This is a must have for me. I love the super creamy formula and staying power. It smells yummy and it is not a bright red but a very wearable red lipstick that can make anybody look elegant.
My Rating: 4.5/5

Makeover Lipstick in Hot Red:
This is one brand I have never heard of. I was given as a complimentary gift for commenting on one of their pics on the brand's facebook page. Apart from the new brand name etc, I actually felt the colour is bright.! Super bright and amazingly pigmented. But, make sure you wear it for a night party.
My Rating : 4/5
You can get it on their Facebook page
Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Love that Rust
No Doubt, I love this range of lipsticks from colorbar. This one is more towards the rusty red. Again a wearable red. But for me, it has a con. It has the shimmer which I hate. I hate lipsticks that has shimmer in them.They give that extra attention to the lips which I hardly ever like.

Makeup Academy MUA Lipstick in Shade 10
Well, I love this brand for its super quality and amazing prices. The drugstore brand of UK, came up with 1 Pound lipstick which is almost 90bucks. I have few of them, you can check the swatches of them here. Out of them all, I totally adore this colour. This one does have very fine shimmer however, they never get into the fine lines. Never make you feel weird about wearing this colour.
My Rating : 3.5/5
Vivo Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Pucker Red
Again a tomato red lipstick from another UK brand named Vivo Cosmetics. It is awesomely pigmented. This is a true red but falls into the cherry shade line. But totally worth the price.
My Rating : 4/5
Lakme Enrich Lipsticks in 358 and in shade 427
These are again my fav. not for the quality but I like them coz they are my first ever finds in the search for my true red lipstick. I see 427 falls more towards the cherry red shade whereas 358 stands ahead a bold bright beautiful shade. I hate their smell as I find it weird and cheap but the creamy formula is hydrating.
My Rating : 4.5/5

Anyway,this is my list of RED Lipsticks! How many of you love this bold shade??

Rita Ora Grammys 2014 Inspired Eye Makeup

Hey People,
I was little down today and only thing which could lift up my mood is the color and I wanted to try some eye makeup. Apart from Makeup and jeans, I love music and the Grammys too.
Yeah, Grammys has music,awards and makeup/fashion. So, when I was checking on who wore what this look by Rita Ora grabbed my attention. It was simple yet stunning.
So, I just created a look inspired on her purple smokey eyes.
Please let me know if you like it or if you have any suggestions on this one.

Lakme Absolute Monochrome Night look by Kareen Kapoor Inspired Eye Makeup

Hey people
Today I was checking up my instagram and found this picture of Kareena Kapoor and after some RnD, I could figure out that this look was created for the Lakme Absolute Monochrome Collection - specifically the night look.
I instantly fell in love with the eye makeup and I somehow wanted to try it out and I guess I am okay in decoding it. I felt it is good enough to show you guys and hence the pictures. Please do let me know, if you would like to have a tutorial :)

Shopping Experience With MYNTRA.COM

Rihanna's MAC Cosmetics Promo Look Inspired Eye makeup - Tutorial

Hey people..
As the title says.. It is the eye makeup post and unfortunately it is my first ever inspired eye makeup. Rihanna has always been my favourite artist and I love all her songs and I can sing most of her songs without looking at the lyrics. lol (exaggerating eh :P)
Apart from her voice and songs, I loove her life style and I don't care attitude. That attitude is clearly seen in her makeup,hair styles and her dressing.
When MAC Cosmetics paired up Rihanna and the whole collection is like a fairy tale. but way too raunchy and hot. The colours were chosen to be bold reds/maroons just like her.
Last week, MAC Cosmetics posted a picture of Rihanna and I was totally smitten by the smokey eyes.
Sadly, I do not own a brown eye pencil.
So, I ended up using the brown eye shadow from the SLEEK's Storm palette.
Whatsoever, it is a TOTAL FAIL!!! :D

Day 1 - The 30 Day Lip Swatch Challenge

Hey people..
To make the beauty blogging little more interesting, I have come up with the concept of a 30 day lip swatch challenge.
I am already a part of a weekly eye makeup challenge.
I am starting off today with the lip swatch with a pretty RED.
These days I am obsessed with the red lipstick or anything related red. I want everything that belongs to the colour red.
So, here I am with my Day 1 of the challenge.
I have used the Lakme Enrich Lipstick in 427.
About the lipstick:
This is a lipstick from the Red and maroon family of the Lakme Enrich Range.
Here are the swatches:

Week 1 of The Weekly Eye Makeup Challenge

Hey Girls,I was one among those eye makeup enthusiasts who just go gaga over any eye makeup look.
I work full time still interested in doing an eye makeup every week, me along with few other blogger friends decided to do a challenge sort of thing. The challenge is to create an eye makeup every week.
Here is what I created for the week 1 challenge
I did a random look

Lakme Enrich Satin Lipstick in 358 - Review,Swatch,LOTD

Hey people.. 
I am pretty excited about writing this post. That's because this is my first ever lakme enrich lipstick. I know that this is the basic lipstick and may be the first lipstick that you girls started off with. But for me, I took so long to get one(blame on colorbar and other brands for distracting me ).
And another reason on why I am excited is because this is a RED lipstick.
I could see myself changing my taste in lipsticks these days. I am loving the RED colour so much! So much that I already got 4 lipsticks in the same red family. I will be reviewing them pretty soon.
After so much of dilemma, I got this shade 358.

What she says about the look:
The way you look at me makes me go Pink Pink…and when you don’t, I go purple.
Think back to the day when he looked at you…on Valentine’s day…and you went *blushing pink*. That is the inspiration behind my look. I call it “When You Look at me, I go Pink, and when you don’t, its Purple.”
The transition from pink to purple in my look is the same way when he looks at you and he doesn't.
I hope you like my look as much as I liked creating it.
