Hits ( Eye Lashes and Glue)

Standard

I know I said I will be speaking about primers today, but I thought let me finish with the eye’s 1st.

If you know me you know I love FULL ON GLAM. But when I go out to the mall / walk etc the only thing I don’t put are my lashes. I normally put false lashes on occasions. Most of the times I get asked if I am going for a party or prom even without my lashes LOL 😉

So my favorite lashes are anything that are thick and full. That’s why this time when I went to IMATS I added Velour and Esqido Lashes (I am still to try them) and the another important thing is lash glue obviously or how will you stick your lashes on. I picked up a vegan lash glue.

Eyelashes – So far I have loved House of lashes, because of their thin band it easily bends to the shape of the eye. Their different style’s look so fierce but they are wearable and wont make you look super dramatic. If you have been following me you know my favorite ones are Temptress, Sirens and Tigress. I know by adding Velour and Esqido to the list my favorite’s will be growing soon. House of Lashes aka HOL speaks for them self. It is one of the favorite brands for most makeup artists.

True Glue had followed me long long time back on facebook and I always wanted to try it so this time they came to IMATS Vancouver and without thinking twice I got it. The reason being is they are super natural or vegan you can say. It don’t smell like fish tho it takes little longer to get tacky but it stays put and doesn’t budge coz it doesn’t irritates the eye. I used to use Duo lash glue in dark. It smells horrible and my eyes would always water (because of Latex).

Why True glue you will ask me, its because of their ingredients such as chamomile, rosewater and biotin True Glue is actually beneficial for your skin and natural lashes! True glue is the first adhesive of its kind, it’s made from completely all natural ingredients that are actually good for your skin and lash growth. Dermatologist tested, latex free and not tested on animals. You wouldn’t knowingly eat harmful toxins, so stop ingesting them!

I feel every girl should try false lashes once in their life. I used to be like no ways am I going to wear lashes its so unnatural. But after I did, I saw my self in the mirror and said where have you been my whole life *shocked eyes*. It brings the whole look together.

So if you have ever thought of wearing falsies but had 2nd thoughts. Trust me think no more try it and you will be amazed 🙂

PS- I am not paid to do this review. But again I would like to thank True glue for featuring me on their instagram

Tomorrow for sure I will be speaking about primers. ❤

Hits (Favorite Product) Eyebrow

Standard

I am back with the 2nd Favorite product, as I mentioned yesterday its the most amazing waterproof eyebrow product.

Its the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow (Pomade) Its creamy constancy which helps build and fill in your eyebrows. I personally didn’t know how much of a difference groomed filled-in eyebrows make to complete the look. I used to use lip pencils to fill in my eyebrows and to be honest it looked horrible, it made me look like a devil lol.

The above picture I have actually put in few options depending on what look you like. The Makeup forever and Anastasia dipbrow is a gel / pomade type consistency and the Anastasia brow wiz is a pencil / crayon. The Gel helps to draw in helping you to give the hair like effect if you have a bald spot where as the pencil just helps you fill in place where you have sparse hair.

On days where I like to have a full on glam makeup I used the gel and for simple morning look I used the brow wiz. In the picture above I have used the Anastasia dip brow.

I use the Morphe S25 brush (mentioned in my last post) and sketched my eyebrow and draw on my bald spot like I was mimicking the eyebrow hair (you can not see it as the pigmentation is amazing and no matter what you do it will not budge)

The size of this product is 4.0g / 0.14oz. You can use this for life as little goes a long way. So if you ask if its worth the hype then my answer will be YES.

My next favorite that I will talk about is primers.

Cya tomorrow.

Hits (Favorite Products)

Standard

I am going to be doing 1 favorite product a day for one week starting today. Will be giving some tip and tricks and why I love this particular product. After this I will be doing Flop Products.

Also I am a person who doesn’t follow the herd, I do my own research before I spend money on a particular product. I also want to add that I am not being paid to do this post so I am going to be totally frank when I say why I love the product.

I will be start with eyes and then face and then lips, so my 1st favorite product is

The Morphe S25 Angle liner / Spoolie brush (Eyebrow brush)

This brush is used to help define your eyebrows and it is also a dual sided synthetic brush. The reason why I love this brush is because its bristles are packed together which helps you to create a thin line when using a cream / gel. The spoolie helps you to brush your eyebrow hair up and also remove excess product while applying the product to the eyebrow. This brush actually does the job for you 🙂 (just try to have a steady hand and you will get the best result)

You can get this brush (and many other amazing affordable brushes) on their website. I had the chance to go to IMATS this year and last year so I saved lots on shipping. But even with shipping their products are totally worth it. Its cheaper than MAC but similar to MAC.

I am sure many of you must have noticed some parts of your eyebrows have a bald spot or sparse hair (like me). Tomorrow I will talk about my 2nd favorite product that gives you amazing eyebrows and is also water proof.

November Favorites

November Fav

November Fav

As you must have all read in my last months post that I will be starting a new post which I will be updating my monthly favorites so here is my 1st post for the Month of November.

I have 10 products which are my favorites for the month of November. I am sure out of these I will be repeating few products again and again (LOL).

Brows – We all know how essential it is for our eyebrows to look tamed and sometimes we do need to fill in some gaps and give it a clear crispy look. I use the E.L.F eyebrow kit in Dark. It has a wax and a powder after sketching the outline and filling in with the wax we can set it with the powder so it remains intact the whole day without needing to retouch it and avoid it from smudging.

Eyeshadow Palette – Urban Decay’s Naked one palette. If you are more of a fan of natural tone eyeshadow’s I would say this is the best as it has Golds, coopers, pinks, browns and grey. It will really accentuate the eye and its perfect for any Indian skin tone and occasion as we do love playing with Golds and Coopers 🙂

Eyeliner – All time favorite Inglot gel liner in Black number 77.  I haven’t seen anything as black as this gel liner I call it JET BLACK. Other best thing about this product is waterproof.

Concealer – I do have really dark under eye circles and if I don’t do any makeup I do have to at least conceal them. I use MAC orange studio finish corrector to counterbalance the deep bluish hues and after buffing it well I use the MAC Select cover – up in NW 35. I prefer the concealer to be same colour as our skin tone and not too dark or too light just to give it a natural look. As too dark can make it look as if we had a bruise and too light can make the under eye look to greyish or ashy.

BB cream – I have tried so many BB creams (samples) from MAC to Garnier to Body shop but couldn’t find the right colour as most of them are pink undertone and I have a wheatish complexion I need a yellow or orange undertone for it to look more natural. Some BB creams can be really oily as its a mixture of moisturizer and SPF. But finally I found a really nice BBcream which suites my tone (I am a NC42-NC43) and its’ not that oily too. Ponds Age miracle in Beige (They have a Pond white BB cream too if you are not looking for an anti aging product). First when you apply it you might feel it a little light but it takes few minutes to settle down and once settled it matches your skin tone.

Ben Nye Banana Powder – I really love the texture of this powder you can either use it to set your makeup or just set your concealer (can be used on your T-Zone also) this can be used as a highlighter too. I remember reading an article in which they mentioned that Kim Kardashian uses this as a highlighter under her eyes.

Blush – Tarte Amazonian clay blush in Flush is my absolute favorite and I find my self using this product every time. I just love how the colour looks. If you need a little OOMPH to your checks rather a rosy fresh look (Its not rosy tho its a pinkish purplish colour) this blush is the best. It is perfect for Winter and Summer.

Highlighter – If you require a little more glow and want to make your face look fresh NYX Illuminating bronzer in Narcissistic is the best. If you have been checking my pictures on my Facebook page you would have noticed that I use only this highlighter.

Last but not the least Lipstick – I am not a fan of lip glosses since college days I only use lipsticks and my 1st ever MAC lipstick was my 1st BOLD PINK lipstick in MAC Girl About Town. Pink never used to suit me until I found the perfect Pink and trust me I haven’t seen such a beautiful pink ever. I might be more attached to it as it was my 1st lipstick that I bought with my own money ❤

That’s all folks till next time
