My Brow Routine/Products

Just thought of to share the brow department. Theres been lots of changes in the products that ive been using( posts coming up..). The products that i use to get my brows done on any given day, though i may not use everyone everyday..lets go on..

                  

From left to right:
Jordana brow/eye shadow powder
Revlon marchesa collection tweezer
Milani brow shaping gel
Real techniques brow bursh
Elf eyelash & brow wand

                     
Now Jordana brow/eyeshadow powder deserves a deep review. Prior to this, Im using Revlon colorstay eyeliner in brown. Yes, an eyeliner as eyebrow pencil. But Im super cautious while putting it on and have to use that one just because i wanted a long-wearing, waterproof, non-smearing eyebrow pencil. Whereas the jordana brow/eyeshadow powder is very pigmented and stays put throughout the day. For me, eyebrow product should be "long-wearing, smudge-proof & water-proof". Im not sure if the jordana was all that, but it is longwearing, provided ur not doing heavy duty stuff that involves water/sweat etc..
I use the Real Techniques brow brush with this. If ive gone overboard with the powder, Il whip out the elf brow spoolie brush and brush out the excess and im done.

Then comes the Milani Brow Shaping gel, which is quite new, but as i say, gets the job done. You see, my eyebrows always droops down at the arch, making the curve over there to look almost less curvy or to say straight. Put this shaping gel over the arch..pretty brows gets some manners.

Revlon Marchesa tweezers are what i use to pluck out and shape the brows. I went out to get the Marchesa compact mirror, because I like the pattern and the color of it so much, but they are out of stock. Instead they have this. I thought its time to get a new tweezers because I wasnt able to relocate where I last saw my old tweezer. So I have to get it.

Thats it for now.
Bye and have a good time.



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.
