kriti sanon on cosmopolitan fotd

Isn’t Kriti Sanon just bringing it on this month’s issue of Cosmopolitan. Well, she’s just got that whole ‘no makeup, makeup’ thing down to a whole new chic level. Very refreshing to see on the cover of a makeup-packed magazine; I may have let out a little gasp when I spotted it on the stands. So it got me thinking. She must be wearing some kind of makeup and just what would those edit of products look like. Here are my predictions and look that I’d ever so warily call a ‘re-creation’ – though my interpretation edges closer to ‘no makeup – run for your lives’ than picture perfect Kriti’s rendition.

Mrunmayees makeup

Today I bring you a rifle through one of my best friend’s makeup bags. Presenting: Mrunmayee. We met in college at the grand age of 19 and we’ve always been bonded over our love of makeup (Mrunmayee was a L’Oreal Glam Shine Gloss gal back in the day). Now an Account Head, she’s my one friend that shares my passion for Sephora and the aisles of Beauty Center, regularly messaging me over pictures of her latest beauty purchase. She’s also a bold lip babe, a liner lover and likes a good dose of blush. Here’s how the contents of her daily makeup bag shapes up…

Lakme for Colour-Scared Cats

Deviating from your favorite brown eyeshadow and nude lipstick is an intimidating prospect for a lot of us. Just looking at some of the colorful eye palettes can scare people. If you put down your beloved Urban Decay Naked palette for just a second, you will see that there are ways to add a hint of color to your beauty look that won’t make you look like a Nicki Minaj wannabe and without searching too high or low, with a brand that has been around here since ages: Lakme. And putting on red lipstick isn’t the only option. Want to rock a some colour, but don’t know where to start? I have just the ticket for you…

MAC Eye Shadow in All That Glitters and Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

This week I thought I’d set myself up as the subject of an experiment that consisted of two parts. One – take a picture every day. Simple. Two – wear five different eye shadow looks throughout the week. No repeats. Now that second brief is a little tougher. Here are the results; take a peek into my eye shadow diary for the past week…

When it comes to nail art, I’m pretty lame. Partly due to the fact that even painting my right hand is a struggle for me and and partly down to the fact that while I love looking at crazy ‘gawd you could have someone’s eye out with those’ jewelled-up, blinged-out talons (check out last week’s post), it’s sort of a look but don’t touch thing. There is one trend though that I can dip my tips in to without too much trouble. The accent nail. It’s genius. You only ever need to puff, pant and paint something fancy on one nail of each hand. Dots, lines, textures – whatever – throw it on the ring finger and be done. Here are my top 3 effects to lacquer up that one special nail with:

Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick Coffee Shimmer

‘Rimmel’ and ‘Lipstick’ are two words that go together as well as ‘Ranbir’ and ‘Kapoor’ in my book. The few bolds from them that I own are some of my most slicked-on on a daily basis. But with their latest drop they are turning their attention to nudes and I’m listening. The shade in question is Coffee Shimmer, a brick brown. The Moisture Renew Lipstick is a sheer offering that coats the lips with a light veil of moisture-rich colour. It’s one of those ‘pat on or build-up’ jobs that will please dark lip newbies and old hands alike, though I’d throw it in the category of a ‘chic colour’; a shade that when applied just makes things look ‘polished’, not too try-hard. I like it worn best with a well-worked base and minimal eye makeup in a kind of ‘oh I just rolled out of bed and threw on this lipstick’ fashion.

So matte lipsticks seem to be having a moment in the beauty world right now, if you can’t already tell from my lipstick-packed Instagram. First the Maybelline New York Color Sensational Velvet Matte Lipstick I oded to last week and now this offering from Lakme, let’s just say my lips are going to be well lacquered-up for the next few months. So in the second installment of lipstick porn this week I bring you the Lakme BM11 Lipstick; a permanent range, 25 shades: which are quite honestly drool-worthy. Hubba hubba. Being a bit lacking in the Lakme lipstick department, coupled with the fact that I’m a sucker for anything billed ‘budget-friendly’ So let’s run through the review:
