Hello my honey bunches,

The weekday work bug is already getting to me and I decided to take care of it.I posted a sneak peak of my revamp your tee on my face book page here. I love how a simple tee look can be worked with and is super versatile.So here's whats on the platter today -> I have a super easy d-i-y t-shirt and a makeup idea  for smaller eyes to making them look bigger *you know very dolly-eyed*.

Things you'll need :
  • any tee that you want to ruin (like my mother says),
  • fabric shears and
  • safety pins(this again could be your choice of colours ,I used colourful ones  :) 

So all you really got to do is mark your shoulders and cut off over the the sleeves like so. I kind off stitched it inwards so it wouldn't fray or widen,if you like yours wider  just don't stitch it widens after every wash :D
When am wearing a plain round neck tee I really like shortening the length by rolling of sleeves.Old habits dies hard,I did that all the time with my uniform back in school.Here I add safety pins to the roll up sleeves.Voila, you now have your very own revamped t-shirt!

Now I was all up for the natural looking no-makeup makeup but it only made me look really washed out.Don't believe me take a look,

So I started my makeup with a wash of Kryolan cinnamon all over the lids,tightlined my eyes using Kryolan Eyekonic gel liner in black and well two very generous coats of mascara each using VeryMe Fat Lash Mascara and Maybelline colossal Waterproof Mascara.I first paired if with Lakme Flirt Love Lipbalm but somehow it just washed me out with red getting overbearing,So goes my no-makeup look down the drain I decided to wear red lip stick from Colorbar Hot Hot and winged my eyes in just the outer corners.This look instantly makes your eyes look bigger.Also I did sought of a heavy contouring on my jawline with Essence Matte bronzer for Brunettes for achieving a V-shape jawline.

The pic where you can actually see my doble chin and how effective is contouring really :P

 Yeash trying to be all doll -like,notice how bigger my eyes look?

 A closeup of my eyemakeup and lips(yes I am biting my lip to make it look smaller *tch..tchh*) .

 And yes in the end Trying to be all nerdy and sexy ..haha such facepalm!Oh yes I have glasses,am so solemnly blind!

I wore it with my OLD Navy denim shorts.
I really hope you like this d-i-y and try it!Let me know if you love it or hate it? Would you wear red on red,
I really don't know what to wear when it come to anything red!
See you lovelies soon in my next post,till then
Stay chic,

*Starry Eyes * La Splash Glitter Review and EOTD

Afternoon there my pretty ladies,

I have been meaning to do products review for a long time now. And Here's my first product review on The "LASplash Glitter Liquid eyeliner"In the shade Golden Sea.

LASplash Cosmetics, a division of  Jon Davler, Incorporated, was founded February 2001 in Los Angeles, California. Our core staff has more than 25 years of experience in the cosmetics industry, which subsequently emerged the company to become a premier vertical color cosmetic manufacturer in the United States

My take on LASplash Glitter Liquid Eyeliner:

To be honest I’m not great fans of glitter eyeliner. I got this in my June travel bag Edition in the shade(p.s. I even received my July vellvette box today, which again has a LASplash Glitter Masacara *mustering under my breathe*) Its a nice golden color.
My first impression about the liner was ohhh-kay this looks pretty in the bottle so I went ahead and swatched and well got the expected sparse glitter flowing around.
I thought it will be more like glitter with a blue base liner but actually it is actually a lot of glitter swimming  a clear base. Glitters are not dense.It stays wet, moist, and smears everywhere. It retails out at Rs795 and honestly I can think of '100 buys' at that budget than spending it on lame glitter liner.

Water, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Xanthan Gum, Diazolidinyl Urea, Propylene Glycol, Polysorbate 20, Triethanolamine, Tocopheryl Acetate, Simethicone, PEG 75 Lanolin, Phenyl Trimethicone, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Triethyl Citrate, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Quaternium-90 Bentonite, V/P Eicosene Copolymer, Shellac. May Contain: Mica, Iron Oxides (Yellow 77492, Red 77491, Black 77499, Brown 77499), Carmine 75470, Manganese Violet 77742, Ultramarine Blue 7700, Chromium Hydroxide Green 77289, Polyethylene Terephthalate.

Here's my EOTD using the liner in two ways :

 I prep my eyes using my Kryolan Supracolour refill concealer in the shade  FS 42 and prepping it further with nyx's jumbo pencil in milk under my browbone.Also I 'm using a tape to reduce fallouts.

With the help of Nyx's long pencil in the shade i start from inner corner define my crease all the way to the outer corner of my eye.
Next I use a purple metallic cream eyeshadow in the shade from Streetwear.This would work like a base for my shadows to be built on and achieve a better colour pay-off.

I apply the deep prune-purple eyeshadow that I received in my  Motives palette.and cut my crease and defined the outer corners.


  I used the loose eyeshadow from   Faces in the shade and pat on the extreme corners on my eye.Since the shadow is not baked it's best to pat the colour onto your lids with the help of a flat shader brush.Note that I haven't really blended out any colour as of yet

In the center-most I go ahead and use my bright blue from Inglot Freedom system round eyeshadow refill in the shade no.371 Matte.Since it's brighter than  the last eyeshadow it instantly add a pop to the eye.

I blend out the outer crease with the help of a small blending brush and use Inglot's Matte eyeshadow in the shade 353 Matte.

 With a clean fluffy small blending brush I merge and blend away my colour on the lids so that there isnt any harsh line.

Now here comes our star  in the limelight ,I used glitter eyeliner on the center eyeliner of my lids,Patting it down gently with the same brush in order for the product to stick.

Next I did my eyebrows with the Nyx Auto Pencil in Dark Brown and winged out my liner with the Coloressence liner in black.

  Next adding the Lakme eyekonic kohl to my waterline.Also on my lashline I used Colorbar's i-define pencil in the shade.

Remove the tape and to add a little edge I lined my inner corners with Oriflames Very me Liner in Peacock Green and gently blended it into LA Splash Glitter completing your eyes with generous coats of mascara.

Within a a few minutes of application and the genuine eye-fluttering action the glitter started clumping together creating a hot mess leaving sparse grounds on lid to see through.


I tried to wear it in the most common fashion in between the liner too.Below is the picture of the edgy liner.

My final verdict on the product would be that I'm definitely not buying it.
Gift me if you want and you will see them in the coming FOTD's but am so not using that coupon code on this product.Though it offers quite a range in shades and types of liner ,I would have really liked if they would (vellvette crew you listening?) have included the LASplash Magnetic paint pots or the eye-sealer in the Bag.

First OOTD Post


Hellow my cupcakes,
Moving on to my first OOTD Post, I’m super excited about this second collaboration. Also I have been wanting to introduce my lovely readers to  our in-house model Prachi. Since the blog is about styles also that does not preach a size we love to shift our focus to the our counterparts-the not-so perfect bod in comparison to our magazine spreads. This OOTD is about petite size.
Prachi is a size 2 and hence the obvious choice whereas I’m a size 16 but we shall be back to that with our "Ultimate guide to Plus size dressing" in a later post.
So this OOTD is a thumbs up on how we can wear two clashing trends together-sequin and animal prints. What better to wear it out in the room to beat the gloomy rain with all that jazz.
For inspiration, look to D&G, which was all over the trend in their spring/summer show, teaming gingham with florals in an unlikely but successful blend.
How to wear?
·        Try on crazily different prints - mix aztec with animal prints, tribal with stripes or spots, graphic with tropical or for a more print-monochromatic look change up to floral with floral or dot with dots.
·        Wear your spot shirt with tropical printed skirt and go loud (think bright) on accessories for an 'all eyeballs on me' look
·        Team a printed dress with animal print bag and/or shoe or play it safe with the following looks:
- wear bright colour clothing and clash the print through your accessories.
- mix muted prints and base colours (like black, dusky pink or beige) and layer them together. Think of wearing a block coloured tee with printed pants and animal print shoe and throw in a jacket  .
·        No matter how you choose to wear the look (subtle or bold) keep the colors in the same family or mood. No matter how different your patterns, as long as the colors match, you're good to go.

Its time to break the old rules and make new ones. So throw out your rules book which says anything about not mixing the prints, rummage through your wardrobe to find the perfect print clashing pieces and make a statement.

*Yet again a picture heavy Post*

Products used :

·        For the face I used Garnier BB Cream as a base, concealing dark circles and some discoloration with Kryolan Supracolour concealer.
·        I avoided any pressed powder because I wanted a dewy finish.
·        For the eyes: I used kohl to tight lining and on the water liner.
Placed a generous amount of eyeshadow in the shade of  from Kryolan.
·        Cutting a crease using shimmery brown shadow from Nyx Trio Pallette.
·        And used generous amount of mascara from Rimmel Scandalous eyes and demi lashes.
·        For the lips I used Maybelline Matte super stay 16-hr lipstick in the shade Infinitely Fuschia.

·        I chose a small print as it could be a versatile piece to work with. The top was was too over sized for her  hence a good way to style it was with a crop top which worked well with our high-waisted brown sequin skirt.I have designed the skirt using tulle, polyester and net, and some amazing sequin, sourced by my aunt on her trip to Paris.
The wedges are an absolute fit to adding the perfect length and colour to our neutral outfit. Also to get that polished look I added a tan belt, that also kept the skirt in place :P
·        The accessories are minimum just added a statement ring and that classic small satchel with gold rim.
