Summer Powder Foundation Routine : Summer Chic

Hey Gorgeous!

Summer calls for a powder foundation routine. There are days when I just don’t feel like applying a creamy foundation and like to have something light weight. Those days I grab my Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder to help my skin look better than it actually is.

The product comes in a compact tub which has a “shaver” that scrapes out the product once you twist it. A pretty cool way to get my freshly milled power out. I really love this product because it does not break me out, helps to cover my blemishes and also helps in keeping me oil free for few hours.

Having an acne prone skin and oily skin sucks but you got to deal with what you have right?

I have uploaded my demo video on my youtube channel so you can see how I apply this foundation.

Have you tried this foundation? Which is your favorite powder foundation?

Hey Lovelies,

While I write on my blog I have the freedom to use backspace and type again. This actually helps me to forget about my silly goof-ups in the long run.

BUT, while filming I can go back to the unedited version and see how I fumbled at a particular point. This is exactly what happened and I complied some of them in a video. Hope you will have a good laugh *at my expense* lol.

3 Summer hairstyles

Mini M.A.C store rant + Mini NewU Haul

Hello Gorgeous!

As the title suggests, it a rant and a haul. So here goes the story:

I went to the mall with the sole aim of drooling over and purchasing the Cinderella collection from M.A.C. But guess what happened! I was told this collection was not released in India and will not be since “they” think it will not be good for Indian skin tone.

WHAT – Are you kidding me? Let the bazillion girls in India decide if it will suit them or not. You should have got some of it and then should have seen how the sales were doing. Only thing an Indian girl residing in India will do is ask her friends to grab it for her from elsewhere. (MAC India read this as giving your sales to another country.. GRRR)

I was so mad that I did not buy anything from M.A.C. even though I heard few lipsticks calling my name  *Ashaaaa Take me, Take me*

Eventually I headed to a much humble abode of drugstore makeup – NewU. I bought few products from there, some of them were tried and tested by me before and some were new ( read impulse purchase)

So here are my picks –

Maybelline Baby Lips – Tried and tested before

baby lips

This is my 4th tube which I will end up using till its last breath. This stuff is the best lip balm available in the market. The pop of color that it gives me is perfect. Once I apply this to my bare lips it makes them look a nicer version of my own, so it is great for a “no makeup look” days. Rps 150 for 4.5 g

L’oreal Colour Protect Protecting Shampoo – Tried and tested before

This is my second shampoo bottle after getting my hair colored for the third time ( makes sense?). Last time when I got my hair colored I picked up this shampoo along with a conditioner from same line. Both together were good enough to keep my new hair color happy and intact for a long time. The conditioner did a great job to keep the “oh bit damaged” hair strands conditioned. I wanted to grab the conditioner along with this shampoo but NewU did not have any left with them – bummer! Rs. 145 for 175ml

Lakmé Eyeconic Green Impulse purchase

Spring is here and this required me to get some pop of color in my makeup bag, yet again. Yes, I need more of those colorful liners – black doesn’t do justice for everyday. This liner is amazing but it’s not smudge proof, so an oily lid or a sweaty day would ruin the look ( Hello Summer). Getting back to its plus points the product has a great color pay off and I love this emerald-green shade. It will suit indian skin tone / olive skin tone beautifully. Rs. 250 for .35 g

Beauty Formulas Tea Tree Wipes – Impulse purchase

tea tree

 

Well, this one I got just because it said “beauty formulas” and “Tea Tree” in the same package. Any acne prone human being will support  tea tree just the way an indian cricket fan supports India during a match. It’s like you have an immense faith in this ingredient which is similar to the faith bestowed on those 11 players on the field. Getting back to its plus points, these wipes are great to wipe away your makeup but you still need to wash your face before hitting the bed. I know it’s a task which every lazy girl hates but an acne prone girl just can take that risk, so i always try to wash my face no matter what. These wipes smell lovely to me since I love the main ingredient and it sort of refreshes my face. Rs. 229 for 30 wipes

So basically, M.A.C Cinderella collection helped me save a lot of money 🙂 but I am still mad since I couldn’t get to play with it :(.

Have you tried any of these above products or the gorgeous Cinderella collection ?
