However, when I was going through Snapdeal, I liked what I saw and ordered it immediately.
About Urban Decay Naked 3 Power Brush Set:

First come first, talking about its packaging, it comes in a dusty silver tin box with ‘NAKED 3 URBAN DECAY’ written on it. The box contains12 medium sized brushes. The box is travel friend and is really appealing to the eyes. Also, the set is nearly well endowed with all the brushes that you might need. Each brush is put inside a plastic wrapper and has a silver body with the golden edge and brown soft hair.

Now comes the experience, apart from it looking really pretty and coming in very viable packaging, Urban Decay Naked 3 Power Brush Set also has good quality brushes inside. They are super soft on the face and do a flawless job of blending your entire makeup without any blotting or patchiness on the face.

Also, if you love makeup, but are still in the learning process and obviously you need to practice a lot. For that, you need the correct brushes to master any look, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend tens of thousands. Investing in a new collection without handing over your first born is always a good option and for that Urban Decay Naked 3 brushes are one of the best bargains.

Freedom To Experiment This Independence Day

It’s always fun to take on our much-loved three colors and rejoice freedom, which is important to all of us. This Independence Day, celebrate the lushness of saffron, white and green with some beauty inspirations. Here are ways to take on this idea:

Dashing oranges: Makeup has gone back to the brights and neons. Try the confident orange eye:

  1. Prep your eyelids with an eye primer and use a beige eye shadow to fill them up (cream or powder based).
  2. Thereafter, pick a bright shade of orange, and fill up the eye lids starting from the lash line.
  3. Now, pick a white eyeliner and draw a line upon the lash line. Then, using a neon orange eye shadow, seamlessly cover the white liner atop the lash line.
  4. Finish by using a shadow brush to blend all stark lines and colors together, if any to avoid any creases.

White Valor: White waterlines are a tranquil way to glam up your peepers. This Independence Day, why not use the liquid ivories for some ramp-esque beauty as well?

  1. Pick up a white liner preferably cream based and use it to do a reverse cat eye on the waterline, with the wings stretching out on each side.
  2. You can also use your white pencil liner as a highlighter for your cupid’s bow and outside corners of the lips

Emerald all the way: Worrying about matching your makeup with the jewelry? As green is the flavor now a days, pick an emerald eye do.

  1. After using an eye primer, use a dark charm green shade to fill up the eye lids up till the crease.
  2. On the brow bone, use a dewy grey eyeshadow to create a dramatic effect and as a transitioning color.
  3. Glaze it up with a highlighter on the arch.

Is Strobing is the new Contouring?

 

Welcome ladies, It seems like every day brings about a new must-try makeup trend and its so hard to keep up with them. The moment you master your contouring technique suddenly the makeup world discards it and starts following and preaching another thing. We’ve been hearing the word ‘strobing’ recently and wondering, what the hell is this new makeup trend? If you’re overwhelmed by the whole thing, chill. We’re here to help! What is strobing, you ask? It’s a fun term for highlighting, basically. Forget everything you learned about contouring (it was hard to master, anyway)

1b64f67217314f9908f9f6edb67da401

Now on to strobing, contouring’s dramatically simpler sister. It is a technique that only uses light to enhance your face, no bronzer or dark powders involved here. Basically, you’re taking all of your usual contouring steps, but just ditching the part where you carve out your features. With strobing it’s about creating the appearance of light and luminosity, The result should be dewy and fresh, like you’re being lit-up from within. So to sum it up, strobing is about creating that all-over I’ve-just-been-on-a-300-day-spa-break kind of glow.

Now, we are going to give step by step procedure as to how to achieve that perfect look, because “dewy” can turn into “sweaty” super-quick.

  1. Prep your skin with a hydrating moisturiser. Strobing is all about getting the perfect glow, so you’ll need to replenish dull, dry skin with exfoliating and applying a good moisturiser first. If you have naturally oily skin, use one that’s oil-free. You can also try mixing in a bit of luminizer with your foundation to get glowing right out the gate after moisturising your face.
  1. Use a highlighter shade that best matches your skin tone.To avoid the frosted ’90s look, and looking like that you just ran 500 mile race  make sure the highlighter you’re using complements your skin tone for a subtle sheen. For fair skin tone go for champagne tone, for light medium go for Pink champagne tone, For olive skin go for golden tone and for dark skin go for Terracotta tones. Remember the sheen should be very subtle, avoid using overly shimmery products.1fb38b0a83ca4fc318b9df76ac8ab7c5
  1. Only use the highlighter in spots that catch light:centre of your cheekbones, along your temples, down the center of bridge of your nose, below your brow bone, in the corners of your eyes, and above your cupid’s bow. This will enhance your natural features. Don’t spread the product all over your face, or else your glow will turn into a greasy hot mess. If you have oily skin, skip areas like your forehead or chin, which have a little shine already.

  1. Blend it like there is no tomorrow: After you’ve applied the highlighter, blend it out with your fingers, a fan brush, or a damp makeup sponge.To avoid blobs of product and obvious makeup lines, make sure you blend any harsh edges of highlighter so it fades into the rest of your skin.

94ed89bb927baed407180e6f79701fe1

  1. If you have oily skin, opt for a matte bronzer, blush, or other facial products, and only use a shimmery highlighter. To avoid looking like a disco ball, choose a matte formula for most of your makeup (primer, foundation, bronzer, powder). Avoid highlighting areas on your face that have breakouts — unless you want the whole world to see your blemishes.

 

INEXPENSIVE HACKS-

  • You don’t have to spend gazillion amount of money for this look, it can be easily achieved by using shades in your any of your nude eye shadow palate.
  • Instead of using luminizer , you can dab tiny about of petroleum jelly on all of your high points. It gives the same look.

 

If you want to buy some new makeup considering the heavy sale going every where. these are my favourite picks and they are easily available .

Product Review: ADS WOW Peel-Off Lip Gloss

Hey, there girls! So, here is our first blog post which is a product review blog for you all. For the first time, we are trying our hands on beauty blogs and are reviewing ADS WOW Peel-Off Lip Gloss. A lot of online shopping sites and Instagram shopping accounts offer this product at various prices, and we got for a throwaway price of Rs. 499 from e-bay.in. This has 12 beautiful lip stains, covering almost all shades of pink, red and brown and this how the packaging looks like.

IMG_2880

 

Starting from the packaging of lips stains, each box contains 6 shades as you can see in the picture above and at the back of the box a very explanatory application process is given along with pictures making it super user friendly. Inside the box, lip stains come in an attractive tube with a rounded tip for easy application.

IMG_2882

Moving on to the content in the tube, the lip stains have a thick consistency and are very super-duper pigmented.

IMG_2885

The content is of darker shade than the actual shade which will come on the lips after the peel off.

Below are the swatches of all the lips stains palette wise.

As you can see in the picture below, the lip stains in the brown palette, are more or less of the same shade when you apply it but the actual result on the lips is very different from each one it.

IMG_2884

Whereas the palette which contains red and pink shades, as you can see highly vary from each other on the application of it as well the actual result.

IMG_2883

 

This picture below is of after peel off. The result of the swatches may vary from the actual result on the lips.

IMG_2886

Coming to its application, it has to be applied thickly and evenly on the lips. And while applying try not to go on or outside the lip line. Wait for 5-7 minutes until it is completely dry and then start peeling it off starting from the corners of your lips. Once it is properly dried, peeling it off becomes really easy.

 

Some of the tips that might help you girls while using this product:

  • You can use a tiny amount of water to even out the color on your lips with the help of your finger tip.
  • For it to look better on your lips, outline your lips with a similar color lip liner after peeling it off to fill in any gaps on the lip edges.
  • Apply concealer around your lips for a finished and sharp look.

A good buy according to us because:

  • Very pigmented.
  • Covers almost all trendy shades.
  • Does not smudge at all and is super wearable.
  • Gives a finished matte look.
  • Eat not fade.
  • Stays for very long period.
  • Gives a very natural look to the lips.
  • Doesn’t end up giving chapped look to the lips.

Things you should look out for before buying:

  • Application procedure can be super messy because it might get onto your teeth, tongue and all over your fingertips, if not applied carefully.
  • It tends to spread out of the lips and might go outside the lip line.
  • The lip color on the lower lip and upper lip may vary in some shades.
  • It is a bit time taking, unlike the normal lipsticks, so if are already running late drop the idea of applying it.

Here are few pictures of the shades from both the palette.
