Friday Fives: Beauty

11th Jan 2013

This week’s Friday fives are my last five beauty purchases. I haven’t written many beauty posts and the reason’s simple- I am pretty clueless when it comes to make-up and ridiculously unadventurous in trying new trends. Ummm I’ve only just got my head around BB creams and the beauty/fash packs according to the glossies have moved on to CC creams? I might have heard of CC creams but do I know what they really are or which is the best? Nope- not a clueeeeee. Well seeing as it’s a new year I am going to try to master some eye shadow colours that aren’t gold or bronze and to whack on a bright lippy now and then. (I made a start- look below!)

Burt’s Bees lip balm. It’s full on ugghhh winter in London and I alternate between Burt’s and Carmex.

M.A.C Ruby Woo- it is true this shade really does suit every skin colour (check out the video I made with make-up artist Dipali Damji on how to apply bright lippy here)

Shahnaz Husain Shamoist Plus Intensive Moisturising- I recently tried out a sample of this product and found it really soothing on my dull winter skin so have just ordered it online.

M.A.C Hanging Loose Dirty Pink Nude. I thought I’d get on the S/s 13 nude nails bandwagon. I like this easy shade from M.A.C’s Apres- Chic collection.

Rimmel Exaggerate Eyeliner. I’ve been using this eyeliner for years. The long nib makes it super easy to use and perfect for adding a retro flick and unlike some other brands the colour stays a true black on dark skin too.

Friday Fives

14th Dec 2012

Hey guys- Friday Fives is a new regular for the blog where I pick out my favourite five things for the week. This could be anything from my fav five make up looks to my fav five winter coats of the week! I’m kicking off with my fav five celeb looks and with three uber glam parties this week (the Cavalli launch, Ensemble’s 25th anniversary and Hello! India Hall of Fame do) there were plenty of options to consider.

Sridevi’s style just keeps getting better and better! And she looked absolutely sensational in Prabal Gurung at the Hello! India Hall of Fame party

I was kinda disappointed with the looks at Ensemble’s 25th anniversary party. The only outfit that stood out for me was Anu Dewan in Stella McCartney. The bronze pumps and skinny belt work well with the striking print but the bag was a duff choice.

Madhuri Dixit looked amazing in Dior, its fab to see her in a gown instead of her usual anarkali/sari choice. Her hair and make up looked fresh and so now!

Ok, I already know this might come as a surprise choice seeing as Sonam Kapoor was Cavalli’s guest of honour and yes she looked gorgeous in the black lace gown but I just thought Jacqueline Fernandez look was just so effortless and the pop of colour just stood out!

Well how could I not include Ms Balan in the list? The talented lady got hitched to her real life leading man Siddharth Roy Kapur and look at that awwww look of love! Congrats to the happy couple!
