Look like Her #6- Anushka Sharma in Elle 18 eye drama advertisement.ย 

This one is inspired by Anushka Sharma in Elle 18 eye drama kajal advertisement. Seriously guys, there are just two actresses in whole of Bollywood who can pull off such edgy eye makeup- Anushka Sharma and Kareena Kapoor. Now, I tried a lot to find the advertisement online as well as look for pictures, but I dint find anything that perfect! 

Either way, I have roughly recreated the look, not exactly for sure. 


I even puffed up my hair and wore it back in a pony tail to make it look close enough as Anushka Sharma in the advertisement. 


It’s a very edgy and fun look that surely isn’t for an everyday make-up. But on special occasions, it does pay to dress up your eyes a little bit extra! 

I used the 2 in 1 Kohl and liner by The Body Shop and one super pointed eyeliner applicator, to create this look. First, I drew a faint outline of the look I was trying to recreate. Then I went over it carefully until I was happy with the look. 


The rest of the look decoded below-

Primer- Maybelline baby skin primer

Foundation- Maybelline Dream Satin liquid foundation

Concealer- Essence cover stick concealer 

Compact- Essence Camouflage 2 in 1 compact

Mascara- Maybelline False-up Pushies mascara first coat. Then a second coat of Lakme curling mascara.

Eye brows- Wet n Wild ultimate brow kit

Highlighter- Faces Ultimate glow highlighter

Lipstick- Maybelline colour sensational matte lipstick in the shade Lovely Violet. 

What do you guys think of this look? Lemme know in the comments below.

The Butter Thief.

She always hung the pot of butter,

Low enough for him to reach,

“Oh Krishna, you little thief!”

She smiled to herself.

 She never understood this deal,

How is it that whenever he steals,

The pot of butter never empties out,

Instead, Her harvest keeps increasing everyday!

๏ปฟSivanna Colours!ย 

Hello Friends, 

This post is going to be a little different. In this post, I’m gonna be sharing my views and just in general, talk about sivanna colours. It is very lesser known brand of cosmetics that has a wide range of products at very pocket friendly price. Sivanna colours is the result of French-Thai joint venture into providing quality cosmetics at affordable rates. 

Sometime back, I came across Sivanna’s Nude on Nude make-up palette while looking for lipstick palettes. This was at a time when brands like NYX, Milani, make-up revolution, L.A. Girl etc were not available in India. I was immediately intrigued by the product and it’s affordability, so I bought it. 


This palette has 20 eyeshadows and 10 lipsticks. I bought this palette for about 799/- Rs I think, I don’t remember now. Also this palette is not available anymore in India! 

Then, after a pretty long wait, cosmetic brands like NYX, Milani etc. Was finally made available in India. Just recently I noticed that the Sivanna’s Nude on Nude palette is just the same as NYX Nude on Nude make-up palette! 


So I went on and digged around the Sivanna’s products and started comparing them to products from other brands. Well, it’s safe to say that the developers at sivanna cosmetics do not have their own brain! They have simply copied the style and packaging of the cosmetics from other major drug store brands! But of course they cannot make up for the quality and that must be the reason for such low pricing! Check it out: 


Milani Rose Powder Blush- โ‚น1200/-

Sivanna Rose Powder Blush- โ‚น275/-


NYX Dreamcatcher palette- โ‚น1225/-

Sivanna matt palette- โ‚น525/-


NYX ultimate palette- โ‚น1725/-

Sivanna 12 colour palette- โ‚น450/-

These are not just it. Their single highlighters and blush palettes look exactly like the ones by Makeup Revolution. They also have these shimmer bricks palette that is exactly like the ones by Revlon or Bobbi Brown. And the list goes on……

And just for your information-The NYX Nude on Nude palette isn’t available anymore either. Currently it could be found only on eBay.in and retails for โ‚น5500/- ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Have any of you tried cosmetics from sivanna colours? Would love to know what you thought of it!

Freed!

She carried a pot of water,

Walking home, Eyes on ground.

He threw a piece of gravel,

At her pot, It hit her heart!

Oh mischievous Krishna!

Freed her of her burden,

Washed off all her sins,

Broke all her shackles down

and Set her Free!

Look Like Her #5- Samantha Ruth Prabhu at an award function.

Hi Friends, 

I’m back with a look for the Look Like Her series and this time I’m about to recreate this simple elegant look worn by Samantha Ruth Prabhu at an Awards Function. I have already done a look worn by Actress Samantha where I have given an introduction to this beautiful charming actress! Do Check it out.


Well this is the Look I’m recreating, down to the black and white filter. That said, I did not have the patience to find a filter that’s most similar to this one! Well, I did my best. ๐Ÿ˜

Since most part of my makeup is covered by the filter, it doesn’t really matter except the prominent cat eye look. 

Anyway this is how I acheived this look. Read on-

For my Face:

  • Maybelline baby skin primer as always on completely clean skin. 
  • Followed by the Maybelline Fit me Foundation in the shade 350
  • I used the Essence cosmetics match 2 cover cream concealer under my eyes and blended it to cover my lower water line too. This would give me  more open eyes kinda look. 
  • I set the whole thing up and nice with my Barath and Dorris loose powder. 


For my eyes-

  • I first primed my eyes with the Barath and Dorris cream concealer.
  • Then I carefully created the cat eye look with my Wet n Wild proline eye liner. 
  • When I was satisfied with that, I put on the mascara- Maybelline Great lash mascara. I applied this to both upper and lower lashes. 
  • I did my brows with the wet n Wild Ultimate brow kit using the e.l.f brow stencil! Loving it so much! โค๏ธ ๐Ÿ’‹ 

For my lips I put on the Maybelline baby lips lip balm in the flavour cinnamon! It’s a very nice nude pink shade. I just guessed that’s what she was wearing! ๐Ÿ˜‹

Then I put on some jhumka earrings, a black bindhi and let down my hair and that’s it! Done with the look. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ƒ

God she is so flawless! But it’s OK. I’m flawed like most of you angels out there! Flawed and beautiful! 

What do you think of this look? How could I have improved it? Comment below!

Fancy breakfast at home!

Hello Friends, 

Eating at home may not be luxurious and sophisticated as eating at some posh restaurant. Come on, who has the time to make the food look all that fancy. Just cook it in some vessel, throw it on to a plate and eat it! Honestly, Most of the times I don’t even have the time or patience to find a plate. I eat it directly from the vessel in a hurry and run to my kid! 

But say whatever you may, home food is always more simpler, healthier and cheaper option. All you have to do is, go through the little trouble of cooking it right and presenting it nicely on a plate! Like so-

This is my usual breakfast. 

  • 3 pieces of toasted bread (wheat or multi-grain type)
  • Or cereals in milk (no sugar)
  • 1 or 2 eggs (boiled, scrambled, poached or omlet)
  • 1 fruit (preferably mango or banana)

I usually don’t have the time to arrange the food that nicely on a plate. I have to gobble it all down right off the pan! 

But just look at what a difference it can make once I took some time out. Put them down nicely on a plate. And TADAAAAAA. Look like some fancy brunch served in some fancy restaurant. 

On This plate I’ve got-

  1. 3 slices Toasted brown bread
  2. 1 omlet
  3. 1 mango sliced 

I always have my bread with some Garlic Mayo (my absolute favourite) or chilli cheese spread. 


On this plate-

  1. Choco loops and muesli in milk 
  2. 1 fried egg
  3. 1 Banana sliced

Making such a simple menu into a fancy breakfast felt amazing. That and a cup of coffee, best breakfast I had in a long time. And all that at the comfort of my home! ๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒž
