Subtle Indian Wedding Guest Makeup

Firstly, let me just quickly point out that the word ‘subtle’ and ‘Indian wedding’ is not a combination I use too often, if ever. Desi weddings are CRAZY! Everything from the venue to the outfits are SUPER jazzed up. Its all great but I cannot help but notice how a grand wedding has become a denominator…

Sunset Shine

Yesterday morning I had a little extra time on my hands before leaving for work so I decided to do a little more than just my foundation-blush-lipstick routine, that I usually do (because I’m always running late). These pictures were taken at the end of a very long and sweaty (thanks, Dubai) day so I…

Review: Wet n Wild Ultimate Minerals Powder Foundation

As a broke student with a love for all things beauty, brands like Wet n Wild, Milani, Prestige, etc. tend to be regulars in my shopping cart. They’re cheap and fairly okay quality. I’m specifically a massive fan of Wet n Wild lip products and eyeshadows. So, a couple of months ago I decided to…

Pretty Peachy

Does anyone else have those days when you’re spending a day in but have the undying urge to slap some makeup on to your face? Because today was one of days for me (that should explain the very messy hair). I just really wanted to try on some new makeup that I recently purchased and…

Review: Nivea Pure and Natural Powder

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I have those days when I just cannot be bothered to go through applying and buffing foundation on to my skin. It just feels like too much work. Also, sometimes my skin just doesn’t need something as heavy as foundation to look nice. For those lazy days, this…

November Favorites

November has come and gone way too quickly, amirite? Anyway, I’m gonna cut the rambling for this one and get right into it. I have been avoiding makeup most of November because, 1) I didn’t really get out of my room much and 2) I was having quite a few bad-skin-days and didn’t wanna agitate…

Review: Maybelline FIT me! Foundation

I have been using the Maybelline FIT me foundation for quite a while now and so far, it has been pretty impressive. As someone with acne prone skin, its gets difficult to find a foundation that a) does not aggravate my skin and b) does a good job of making my skin look even. The Maybelline FIT…

Sublunary Saturdays: Lights, firecrackers and lots of love

This weekend was Diwali weekend! For those of ya’ll who don’t celebrate Diwali, its.. Oh god, too hard to explain. Its kind of like the Hindu version of Christmas. We believe that the goddess of wealth visits our homes on this particular day which is why we decorate it like crazy. We also go a…
