My Day at Madame Tussauds Launch Event

Oh God, what should I wear?! I have nothing to wear! My closet is a mess, I can't find anything! I don't even remember what clothes I have anymore!
Btw, where are those black suspender tights???
See, I told you weeks ago to put away the summer clothes in the corner junk cupboard, I (told) telled you!
Oh no, what if it's a formal dress code... like gown and head gear and all.... like "Madame" type?
Okay, please calm down! That new black ruffle bodysuit.... That. Make it work.... and just GO!
Eeee.... who's this Bollywood's biggest superstar they speak of?
Umm... Shah Rukh? Ranbir? Ranveer? Aditya Ro...nah, he's not that big (Yet. But you will be.... Jaanu.)....How I wish The Weeknd was a Bollywood superstar too right now *sigh*!
Ohh...I know, I know! Amitabh Bachchan! Yeah, definitely him.

NEW! Lakmé Lip Love Lip Care

In the world of lip care, finding the perfect balance between colour and care is often a difficult one. While lip balms moisturize your lips, you still need a lipstick to add that dash of colour.

The launch of this brand new lip care innovation by Lakmé comes along with the announcement of Shraddha Kapoor joining the Lakmé family.

I Transform Into Cersei Lannister ~ GAME OF THRONES

"When you play the Game Of Thrones. you win or you die.
There is no middle ground."

Cersei Lannister: A character created by George R.R. Martin in his books A Song Of Fire And Ice, which has been adapted into one of the most popular tv shows, GAME OF THRONES. Cersei has a twin brother, Jaime Lannister, with whom she had been in an incestuous relationship since they were adolescents. They both have a younger brother, Tyrion Lannister (the little man up there & my favorite character in the show), whom Cersei loathes because their mother died while giving birth to him.

Aishwarya Rai's Cannes 2014 Red Lipstick ~ It is.....

She is the talk of the town after her first appearance at the Cannes Film Festival 2014. Forget the Roberto Cavalli gown! My eyes didn't even travel down when I first saw her. Even now I don't really know what the cut is like. Her face, hair & makeup were what made her look....especially the red lips!
When the lipstick isn't blotted, it looks a little bit balmy like here & in the pic below.....

Welcome to the first post of a new series I'm doing! Been planning to start this for over 2 months. This one wasn't supposed to be the 1st look, but it just happened, since I did the glittery purple eyes, so I went with it. More about the series at the end of this post. For now, I'm a purple-haired Pop + R&B Star named AMETHYST (real name, not just stage name)........

MUA One Direction Make-Up

Now you can wear Harry Styles & Zayn Malik, girlies! =) 
Boy band of the moment, One Direction, has launched a makeup collection with MUA Cosmetics. It's weird, but if Bieber can launch perfumes for girls, I say why not.
Priced only from £2.50 to £3 | Rs.234-Rs.280, I think it's perfect for teenage 1D fans. Also good for non-teenage, not-1D-fans-just-beauty-obsessed like some of us =D
I might pick up a few today. I got a sneak peek at the Pout Polishes the other day, and they're cute!
Available now at Superdrug 
MUA ships worldwide if you want to order online. 


LOTD: Rani Mukherjee's Makeup In Bombay Talkies

This is CPR for my Bollywood Series, if you still remember it.  
A reader asked me about Rani's look in Bombay Talkies. I hadn't heard about it, so I went to watch the trailer. First scene in trailer- Rani applying red lipstick. I was instantly hooked. I downloaded the movie and watched it. Truthfully, I just wanted to see that lipstick, but I was also entertained by the movie. Next day, I attempted Rani's look.
I must say this heavy kohled look does not suit me. Rani has big lids that are so ideal for eye shadows, I have almost none-lids. But it's really about the red lips.... and apparently, excessive hair handling. I really didn't mean to! =D


Ordered: MAC Riri Woo Lipstick (etc.)

Riri, a.k.a Rihanna collaborated with MAC to create a vivid cool red 'Limited Editionlipstick named Riri Woo. It's a Retro Matte finish like my favorite red lipstick, Ruby Woo, which is also the inspiration behind Riri Woo.
According to E online, it sold out in 3 hours when it launched yesterday. Wow! If you want it, RUN!
I love Ruby Woo, and I used to think, "Ah, I wish there was a darker version in this retro matte finish (only)" Riri Woo looks like that version.
Free delivery over £30 (£2.45 delivery charges if under that), so I decided to get Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Style Surge (a coral shade). All shades shown here

  • MAC Riri Woo Lipstick ~  £14 (Rs.1175). It's an online exclusive. Means it won't be sold in stores.
  • MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick ~  £20 (Rs.1680)

Available online at MAC UK 

Now we wait for 3-5 business days......


LOVING ~ Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks By Kate Moss 16 & 107

How awesome it must be to have your name with a heart on a lipstick cap! Mine will have a bow instead of a heart, but I'm guessing you already know that. I have an untidy touchpad sketch of it in my computer. 
I'm doing a full-on review after a while, no? I've had these pics for a long while now. To be honest, I have a bunch of reviews lined up, but I can't seem to translate my thoughts into words! Let me test drive with Rimmel Kate Moss Lipsticks, some of the cutest drugstore lippies ever!
16, 107

  • Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks By Kate Moss 16 ~  A pretty pink with a hint of coral. I've been wearing this a lot. The finish is not an easy one to work with, because it has to be applied a certain way to look smooth & polished, but the color is too perfect for daytime that I always reach for it. This is from the Spring Collection and the formula has black diamond pigment complex (whatever that is). I guess that gives it a little bit of sheen & creaminess (not matte)

  • Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks By Kate Moss 107 ~ A wine shade with a ruby powder enriched formula. I've seen it's the most popular shade with bloggers here in the UK. It is one of the best deep red shades out there, and has the most glide-able velvety finish. 


Favorite Makeup & Hair Oscars 2013

I have not watched the Oscars yet, and I won't coz I don't watch TV anymore (I mean cable), but seeing the hair & makeup always excite me- the good ones only.

This year, only 2 looks held my attention.....

Best Hairstyle ~ Maria Menounos. I just love love love this hairstyle. If I didn't have such a large forehead, I'd style mine like that all the time! How cute is the hairband with only a section of hair?! I never knew this person until now.

Best Makeup ~ Adele. She always looks gorgeous! Lipstick she's wearing looks very similar to Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick My Mahogany

Which Oscar '13 look was your favorite?

Christmas/Holiday Eye Makeup Tutorial ~ Nancy Ajram Inspired

I've wanted to do a Nancy Ajram inspired makeup for a long long time- since last year, to be precise. This year, on 6th April, I seriously planned to do the look, but I guess I got sidetracked again. I know the exact date coz I'd written the post in a Notepad.
Who's Nancy Ajram? She's this Arabic singer. I'm obsessed with only one of her songs - Fi Hagat. Not the song exactly, but the music video. I have watched it a hundred times, I think. So this is kind of a tribute to the song ;) Pic of her makeup in the video......
We have very different eye shapes, so I had to do it to suit my eye shape. She had her eyeshadow right up to her brows, but that would look very weird on my hooded lids. If you have a deep pronounced crease, you could do it exactly like hers.
  1. Apply eyeshadow all over lids & Lower lash line I used Maybelline Color Tattoo Permanent Taupe. You can straight away apply a chocolate brown eyeshadow. I didn't have a dark brown matte eyeshadow.
  2. Take a brown eyeshadow on a blending brush. I used Sigma E25.
  3. Apply the brown eyeshadow on top of the taupe cream eyeshadow. Also apply on lower lash line. I used Urban Decay Buck from Naked Palette.
  4. It should like that.
  5. Take a shimmery taupe or bronze eyeshadow. I used Maybelline Color Tattoo On And On Bronze.
  6. Pat it gently with your ring finger in the center of your lids as shown. Make sure not to touch the edges.
  7. Pat a little bit of gold eyeshadow on top of the bronze.
  8. Reapply the brown eyeshadow making it darker on the outer corners
  9. Get the color in the hollows under your brow bone and blend using circular motions.
  10. Blend & soften the edges of the brown shadow with a fluffy blending brush. I used Sigma E40. Blending Tutorial here.
  11. Line very close to your lashes with black gel liner & an angled liner brush. Start from the outer corners, then line from inner corners by pushing the brush on your lash line, and then join them in the center. I used Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner & MAC 266 angled brush
  12. This is optional: False Lashes. I used Eylure Katy Perry Lashes in Sweetie Pie. Skip if you have naturally full lashes or a darn good mascara.
  13. Apply black mascara to blend the false lashes with your natural ones. I used Maybelline Colossal Smokey Eyes Mascara.
  14. Darken the brown eyeshadow on your lower lash line. I mixed Urban Decay Buck & Blackout because I don't have a dark brown eyeshadow with me.
  15. Apply a bit of the shimmery eyeshadows you used on the lids just on inner half of inner corners of lower lash line. I used only Maybelline On And On Bronze with a pencil brush.
  16. DONE! 
 My brows look dusty (in pics only) because I used cold brow wax. Big mistake >.<

Red Lipstick suggestions: Here she's wearing a YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick (as shown in the video) - probably in Red Taboo. Other suggestions: Maybelline Pleasure Me Red & MAC Russian Red.

The Video:
Stupid stupid man, isn't he?  =D

Fi Hagat means 'There Are Things'. Translated to English (because I'm that  interested heehee):
"I can't ask you to make my world sweeter, to change how things are
No matter how close you are to me.... How dear you are
I can't tell you how I want our life to be
Know, on your own, how I want our life to be.
At times, it seems that I'm content
That I'm calm, that I've accepted everything and got used to it
That doesn't mean you can believe that I gave up."
[Full song translated here - if you're interested.]

I love her makeup in last scene as well. Suggestions: 
Eyes: You could use the same taupe Color Tattoo I used here, or any matte taupe eyeshadow.

I will post a full LOTD with these eyes in a bit, but it will no longer be Nancy Ajram inspired. Hope you found the tut helpful.

MAC Viva Glam Nicki Minaj Lipstick Review & Swatches

When you buy a MAC Viva Glam Lipstick, the money goes to the MAC Aids Fund. A recent statement by MAC:
"M·A·C Cosmetics is going to make twice the impact this year on World AIDS Day. On Saturday, December 1 M·A·C Cosmetics will match all VIVA GLAM product sales on any of the ecommerce sites for a double donation. Typically one VIVA GLAM purchase can buy five meals for a person living with HIV but with M·A·C Cosmetics’ donation match on World AIDS Day a VIVA GLAM lipstick purchased online can buy 10 meals. 
M·A·C’s commitment to the fight against HIV/AIDS occurs 365 days a year through the sales of our VIVA GLAM products, 100 percent of the sales price of VIVA GLAM products goes directly to the M·A·C AIDS Fund. This year on World AIDS Day, M·A·C is going to make an even bigger impact by matching all sales of VIVA GLAM products purchased on and giving twice the money to the M·A·C AIDS Fund.,” 
Shade ~ Viva Glam Nicki Minaj Lipstick is a bright yellow pink. It's very bright pink with a coral tinge. Compared to MAC Chatterbox, it is warmer & leans more towards a coral-pink. It is also lighter than MAC Impassioned.
Finish ~ Satin. This finish is just slightly more creamy than a matte finish.


Creating Kareena Kapoor's Lipstick In Talaash

A reader wrote to me & asked which lipstick Kareena Kapoor is wearing in song Muskaanein Jhooti Hai from the movie Talaash. She sent me the video, and I was blown away by Kareena's lipstick & her overall look. I think I'm more intrigued by this lipstick than that red one Adele wore at the Grammy's, which her make-up artist is so hush-hush about.
For the last 2 nights & a day, I've been going crazy trying to create Kareena's lipstick color. You know we've been over this in that post Lipsticks That Don't Exist, and it's not that plum we were looking for. This one is different, and it evidently does exist! Question is: WHAT IS IT???
It could be the lighting & all that jazz during the video-making, but it's definitely a plummish-red or reddish-plum. A very pigmented one. I think it's made up of a variety of stuff, and not just one lipstick. The color should look as rich & pigmented as MAC Ruby Woo  with only a little bit of sheen.
