Getting Ready For a Wedding: Day function OOTD & FOTD

Naaah! Of Course you are not having eye trouble, it's just a blurred picture that I have put up to tease you. I know, it's just a lil mean of me- but I wanted to catch your attention without revealing the details of my OOTD.



I wore this outfit for a day function at my friend's wedding. The function (in bengali) was called 'aai budo baath' which is a lunch hosted by the bride's parents one last time before she marries off!

Needless to say my OOTD was a litttlllllleeeeeeeeeee over the top for a bengali gathering of 40 people but it was festive and got me in the mood for the wedding nonetheless! PHbbbtttt :P

How I keep my skin matte all day!

To begin with I have extremely oily skin which dreads at the name of moisturizers, creams, sunscreen etc. The end result? Oily and tanned skin :( Of late I have been experimenting with varied products and have also been using Retin-A for my acne prone skin. What Retin-A does is that it peels your skin, making it look dry and flaky. However, for people with oily skin like me using Retin-A might prove to be quite cumbersome because it will make parts of your skin dry and flaky while your T-zone will appear oily as usual. I had to find a solution to combat this unusual problem! Also, I have been travelling a lot (which explains why I have been Missing From Action)-which means that my sensitive skin will be prone to sun burns. YIKES! A couple of months ago while I was still on Retin-A and had happily skipped sun-screen I had experienced my first and most dreaded encounter with Sun Burn. So, all in all I needed to inculcate the habit of using sunscreen without fussing over chip-chip! :-/

Calcutta diaries: Part 1, Haul

Whenever I visit anyone's blog, I get most excited about the haul posts. As such, I must start my Calcutta Diaries with a haul post of everything I bought from the city. Also, as you all know I have been under the weather, therefore I might not be able to explain too much! However, if you require any specific details don't hesitate to post your queries in the comments section and I shall get back to you!

DIWALI outfit and FOTD

Finally I'm home and free. I just want to give you guys a quick update about what I was wearing... So without further ado, let's just quickly jump to the pictures; I will have to start with my packing after this and hence this will be a picture heavy post! :)

I will begin with a random picture clicked in my parents dressing room. I think the color co-ordinated dresses looked really pretty. Love my mum's hair in this pic!
 The next couple of pictures are again from my parent's room, I was just passing time while my mum was getting ready to go visit my various aunts!
I'm wearing my white chicken(?)/chiccan patiala salwar and a kameez which is more like a Kurta. The embroidery and stitching has been done by my boutique.

Getting Ready for a wedding Part 4: EOTD Adele Inspired Day Look

As I was getting ready for my gym session today in the evening, I was also hurriedly catching in on all the drama which was happening in Grey's Anatomy. (Did I ever mention being a keen follower of the soap; Random Fact-It so happens that I mostly like hospital related series, no wonder then that I almost became a doctor~!) Bleh! Anyways, so meanwhile my mind was also loitering around, looking for all the natural yet eye catching eye makeup looks and that's when I happened to catch Dr.Addison Montgomery's (Kate Walsh) Eye Makeup. Very Sexy I must say! Hmm...I would describe it as a rundown version of Adele's eye makeup. For the uninitiated, here's how both of them look:

 (I have shamelessly copied both the images from google)

Review: Faces Canada Long Wear Eye Pencil in Solid Black

Do you guys remember My October Haul where I bought this Eye Liner by Faces (Canada)? At that time I was not aiming to buy a black liner, but because I was running out of Kajal I mindlessly swatched a few liners including those from Chambor, Maybelline and Lakme. The swatch for this liner instantly yelled 'PICK Me UP' and I just couldn't resist the temptation :D

Getting Ready for a Wedding Part 3: EOTD Evening Look

While I was deciding on the clothes that I would be wearing and the cosmetics which I should carry for my friend's wedding, I thought about trying out different looks for the Evening Party a.k.a bachelor's party. The party is going to be held in the evening after the conclusion of the 'aaai budo bhaath'(?) (I hope I'm getting it right) which is an official maiden lunch hosted by the bride's parents (Bengali culture). So anyways, I'm sure all my girlfriends are going to be in a huge rush to dress up and step out-leaving me with very little time to do up my eyes. Considering the occasion and the time, I came up with the following eye makeup as one of the options for the upcoming party. Hope you enjoy the step by step guide to achieving this look :)

NOTD: newU 24 Coral

I know I have only put up one (maybe 2) NOTDs here, but I think I should be more regular about posting what's on my nails; that way I can keep a check on my nail care routine too :) Also, I think it would be useful for you guys to figure out what colors will suit your complexion and needs! As a first NOTD without nail art, I want to show you guys the swatches of my current favorite nail color-the NewU Coral (24)
Price: INR 40/-
Quantity: 5ml

I bought this color around 4-5 months back and it is my go-to color. I <3 it so much that I have already used up 1/3 of the bottle (and everyone knows how hard it is to actually use up even a little bit of nail color, now don't you?) The reason why I managed to use up such a lot is because every time my cousins, aunts or even my mom wants me to do their manicure, I use it as an excuse to show off how pretty this color is ;)

Getting Ready for a Wedding Part 1:Review Biotique Revitalizing anti fatigue eye gel and how to get rid of dark circles

So before you jump to any sorts of conclusions and start congratulating me, I just want to state that I am not planning on getting married anywhere in the near future (although the fact that everyone around is so set/anthusiastic to get married is getting me a bit curious and anxious to jump into the bandwagon) RONDOM USELESS THOUGHT. Anyways, so far as the title of this blog-post goes, one of my best friends from law school is getting married on 17th November and as I'm preparing for her wedding I think that it would be a good time to share all my health/beauty/fashion concerns/cures/remedies with you guys. 

In the first part, I have decided to talk about under eye dark circles/puffiness and how I have been taking care of my under eye concerns. I know I really tend to crib about my under-eye problems but it is also true that I dont have a major problem, although I have really started getting conscious of taking care of the same. I believe that your eye makeup can really make or break a look, and if you don't pay heed to your under-eye concerns then no concealer will be able to act like your fairy god mother!
