Happy...

The only thing/way in this world that makes YOU happy is YOU..!!

Honestly, yes..!!
I'll explain why and how..

Ive been there n through it several times. Doing the same thing, whilst last time, I got lots of joy, the second time I do the same..I dint get any joy, instead i would get some sort of tiredness as though its some kind of a chore.
 Say for example, trying a new lipstick. When i pop on a new shade of lipstick, though it doesnt go well with my skintone, i get happy..thinking 'yay a new lipstick shade..how brave am i to sport it', but then the next day, when u go with some other new shade, that could revive ur skin tone and u feel 'why do i have to put on this chore everyday..??' kind of a blah moment!!

So, the only thing that makes YOU happy is YOU. If YOU are well determined to stay and feel happy.. YOU WILL.

Now, things to do to be happy:
  • Cut the thoughts thats bothering you. (it could be anything, project deadlines, someones bullying u, etc)
  • Cut the thoughts thats bothering you if it creeps back again in to your mind. Yeah..again..!! I tell you cutting those thoughts out of ur mind is not an easy task, but its not hard as well. Do the same cutting and skipping process for atleast 3-4 times and put ur mind on something else..anything..be it cooking, cleaning or going in to the closet and change up in to another dress.. Do it.. and it makes a hell of a change..
Thats it.. Thats all you've got to do. With no things to bother in your mind.. you'll eventually end up being happy.
Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be -Abraham Lincoln
 Thats all for now..
Be Happy..Cut the thoughts of bad things out...and live happy ever after..

Whats in my Makeup Bag..??

Hi Eveyone..
Okay..like most of us..Im very much interested in seeing what other people carry around in their makeup bags..and there are several times that i would just type "whats in my makeup bag" in youtube search tab. Anyways..its finally my time to do this post..

Whats in my Makeup bag
This is the makeup bag that I got from target (its london soho), when they are giving away some free bags. Im lucky enough to grab it, just in time, when my older (boring black) bag was ripping off at zipper.

Okay..befre going ahead.. I would like to mention some few things...
1: All the products in my makeup bag or to say all the products that I use are drugstore products.. I could even step up a bit and say., certain products are even cheap/inexpensive/ affordable. So, those of you who are very much in to High-end category..u could please skip this up..because you arent going to like this,im telling ya.
2: The products that Im using right now are time-tested products(by myself). They are not like some I picked up on my way home and using them, ofcourse I had another stash full of such products sitting unused. Ive been using these on and off and try some different products (sake of youtube/beautyblog gurus recommedations) and come back to these... Might I add that Ive been on a hunt since 2007 to get a bag full of what I like and need..??
3: By "Whats in my makeup bag", I just doenst mean that I travel with these products in a day-to-day basis, but rather mean that I use these everytime, all thru out the year. Whether Im travelling, or if im staying at home..or if its a nightout.. I really like how my bag turned out because.. I can use certain products in these and just look presentable while Im staying at home or pick some combo of products and get full coverage long lasting finish.. Its like..'u tell me what u want and il have it in here'.

Okay..enough of that and lets get started...

Coty Airspun Loose Face powder dumped into another pot
And coming to the powder..I guess not so many were aware of the powder..so i made it sure that i show that as well. Well, its Coty Airspun loose face powder, and as you can see, that its quite huge to carry around..so I have to dump some amount in to another pot that I have.

Well ,thats it for now..and i think il post some reviews on these(kinda HG items) soon.
Till then..
Bye

Current Lemming: Milani MultiTasking Face Powder

Hi there.. Hows everyone doing..?? Hope great.

Anyways...its been a while since I stopped searching for a Powder Foundation because I thought Maybelline Mineral Power Powder Foundation (in Light 4) matched my skin tone quite well.. But few days ago..It accedentally/luckily happened to look myself in the day light(dont know why I didtn do that until now) and  I looked as though I was wearing a grey/pinkish mask that looked completely unflattering. So, I turned on my laptop , to look for best powder foundations. U see, Powder Foundation is the only thing that I could go on and ofcourse tinted moisturizer, being the other option. But no liquid foundations for me please. I dont know any apparent reason, but I look completely fake, unnatural, funny, clowny, etc whenever I put on a liquid foundation. Few Ive tried., Revlon Colorstay foundation, Rimmel Lasting finish foundation, Lakme foundation(I dont remember the exact name), but whatever, I finally figured that Liquid foundations are not up my alley.

So, while I was browsing MakeupAlley, I picked up some few options.
  1. Covergirl Simply Powder Foundation
  2. Physicians Formula Healthy Wear Mineral Foundation
  3. Milani Even touch Powder Foundation
  4. Milani Multitasking Face Powder
(Yea..all non-desi stuff..but Im helpless, when one cannot reach those)
I can see Loreal True match powder foundation, Neutrogena powder Foundations as well..but Im going strongly on budget. Nothing more than $8. And mostly in a compact form, thats quite portable, easy for touch ups on the go (with a mirror & sponge). There are several other mineral foundations as well but I cannot get over their packaging. Its just not handy for me.

 Anyways..now that I have these options..the best that matched me is the Milani Multi tasking Face Powder. Its got 4.3/5 in MUA. Cost is around $6. I like that gold packaging as well. The only con is that Im not sure what shade should I pick, which means more time to search google.Anyways, have to wait a while to place my order online..because I have to line this with someother goodies to avail the free shipping thing (I hate to pay shipping charges :P )

So thats it for now ladies.
Ciao.
