Warm & Coral Spring Makeup Look

Its finally the season of spring and makeup trends are rising. It's the season of bright shadows, and warm tones. In today's makeup look I wanted to achieve a vibrant but subtle look. I played with warm tones and shades of pink and coral with highlighted checks which will glow from a distance. 
The temperature is rising and my skin is acting up. I refuse to take the heat and sometimes I even act like a vampire joking my powers would decrease if I step out in the sun. I am a cold winter girl and If I have to be living in high temperatures I rather do it in a tropical destination. Diva mode alert. 
Anyways, I am all about embracing the beauty around. Flowers are blooming and I came up with a light face base routine and products which are perfect to play with in this changing climate. 

Face- I have been loving my recent purchase, The 123 'perfect foundation' from Bourjois. Its light but gives a decent coverage. It results in a flawless finish & stays through all day. 
To conceal I have still been using the Maybelline fit me concealer & I am going to be addicted to this for a while, Its been my ultimate go to even without foundation, I just apply blend and run out of the house. 

Cheeks - Its the perfect time to experiment with cream blushes! My recent purchase is the 'Whipped Velvet Blush from MUA cosmetics which I bought from Nykaa. I am all about the natural glow' The blush is smooth, soft and glides on the cheeks and gives instant colour. 
For highlighter I stick to my MAC soft & gentle. 

Eyes- Like I said earlier, Warm tones are definitely rising and I used my trusted NYX palette for this look. I used a copper orange undertone eyeshadow on my outer corner of the eyes and blended with a soft fluffy brush. I smudged out the copper shade in the lower lash-line as well. In the inner corner and crease I used a white shadow to make the copper stand out more. To finish the look I applied my new Hyper Glossy liquid liner from Maybelline & applied my favourite lashes from Glowmiere Beauty in the style 'Dulce' 

Lips - Coral lips are my new thing. I used my favourite MAC lipstick in the shade 'Crooswires' its the perfect coral shade out there. 

Products Used - 
Bourjois 123 foundation 
Maybelline Fit me concealer 
NYX 10 color eyeshadow Palette (The runway collection)
Maybelline Hyper Glossy liquid eyeliner 
MUA- Whipped Velvet Blush 
 (All the above products are available on nykaa.com

Its the return of the sun's warmth & the appearance of colour everywhere. Have fun playing with shades and tones

Its eye-catching , lovely & appropriate to convert from a day-to-night occasion. The outfit is fitted at the waist and extends till the hemline which gives it a lovely silhouette.

Waking up In Central Perk

"How you doing?" The touchstone Tv show of American pop culture started again on Comedy Central. Watching the entire 10 seasons of F.R.I.E.N.D.S.  twice in my lifetime, I thought I had enough of it. But then you watch an episode, nostalgia kicks in and the jokes never get old. I have seen the show so many times and I still laugh like its the first time I have seen F.R.I.E.N.D.S.  

So when I was asked to check out a website called 'Souled Store' (www.thesouledstore.com) I was so stoked they had an entire collection of the official F.R.I.E.N.D.S merchandise. How could I resist? I picked out the 'Central Perk' Tee and 'Il be there for you' coffee mug I have gone to the extent of seeing back-to-back episodes of friends, sipping bournvita from the mug while wearing the central perk tee. Thats some hardcore fan-love'. I love how quirky and fun their collection is. I also picked out the cassette tote bag and a wall frame with a beautiful quote which I keep right on my desk. 

I love the idea and concept behind The Souled Store. It started off as an online marketplace which provides independent artists to showcase their work. 

You can make your own tee, Shop the merchandise from your fav tv show and movie, buy and support independent artist and so much more, this is a perfect website to quirk's the atmosphere around you. Head over to www.thesouledstore.com & get shopping'

Get Sporty

I have been loving the sporty chic trend lately, Its clean, minimal and simple. We are rushing into summer already and what better way to celebrate than bringing out your short frill dresses and ray-bans. Its time to give a break to heels and get your comfortable sneakers out.  Its all about keeping a balance between how sporty you can go keeping style and comfort in mind. I fell in love with this  navy blue dress from Stalk buy love. Its youthful and feminine at the say time. The frills on the dress add texture and take it to another level. I paired this dress with my white sneakers and blue ray-bans. To add more edge to my outfit I choose to carry my new Cassettes tote bag from - The souled store  which reminds me of the 90's. 

Outfit details - 
Sunglasses - Ray-bans
Shoes - Decathlon 

Adapting trends into your daily style can be challenging, But there is no right or wrong way when it comes to style. Are you ready to introduce this athletic inspired trend?
