Wearing makeup is not just about applying foundation, eye liner, eye shadow, mascara etc.. It is actually a form of art! Some people say that they don’t like makeup because they prefer looking like their “real self” while some people are so addicted to it that they refuse to come out of their homes without makeup.
Makeup is very helpful when it comes to hiding flaws like blemishes, pimples, scars or even birth marks, there’s nothing that a little makeup cannot hide! It also helps to accentuate your best features, be it your eyes, lips or sculpted cheeks. Applying makeup seems easy at first, but its damn tricky. Having good makeup products or brushes doesn’t mean that you can master the art of applying it, you also need to have very steady hands and a creative mind. Today I will be showing you 9 beautiful makeup looks that you can experiment with!
Heya beauties! Today I’ll quickly review the Makeup Academy / MUA Undress Me Too Eye Shadow Palette which is one of my recent buys. MUA is an UK based drugstore brand which sells highly affordable makeup products. Their eye shadow palettes are famous around the globe. I’m not much into eye makeup, all thanks to my weak eye sight and glasses! Sigh! This is actually my first “proper” eye shadow palette. Read on to know if I liked it or not!
The FIT ME! Matte + Poreless Foundation by Maybelline is their most hyped product. From bloggers to top makeup artists, everyone says that it’s the best drugstore foundation for oily skin which provides great finish and coverage! This foundation is available in only 6 shades in India. I bought it in the shade “128 Medium Beige” which I thought, would fit my skin tone perfectly. Read my full review of Maybelline FIT ME! Matte + Poreless Foundation in shade 128 Medium Beige to know if it’s my perfect FIT!
Maybelline India has been on a roll from quite a few months now. They’ve launched some super-duper products back to back, be it the FITMe range or these lip gradation pencils (which are known as colour blur lip crayons in other countries). I got my hands on this Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Gradation Fuschia 1back in February, but I couldn’t post a review as I was busy with stuff. I have worn this lipstick for barely four or five times till now and I’m all set to review it today! P.S – Don’t worry if you’re too lazy to read the whole post because I’m going to tell you that this lippie is awesomesauce in the first paragraph itself!
We makeup lovers spend so much money on buying 100s of different makeup products, don’t we?
I have just realized that instead of buying all those expensive makeup products from the market, we can DIY most of them by ourselves with the ingredients available at our home! And that is what I am going to share with you all today.
Furthermore, these DIY makeup products are completely free of chemicals and hence, you can gift it to a teenager who is just starting out with makeup or to your young son/daughter/sibling who shows interest in destroying your makeup stash..
Just give them their own set of DIY makeup products that are inexpensive (they are made with ingredients available in your kitchen, duh!) and are chemical free so they would not hurt their delicate skin.

After trying out various types of homemade face packs to get rid of my acne scars, I decided to go for ready to use face packs available in market. I wanted to try Himalaya Neem Face Pack but since it was out of stock, I bought their refreshing fruit pack instead. Check out my review below to know how I liked it!
Hey sugar pies! Here is the last product from Essence I was talking about and It is their duo cream concealer compact – Essence Match 2 Cover Cream Concealer. Read on to know more about this affordable cream concealer
About Essence Match 2 Cover Cream Concealera perfect pair . the creamy, matt texture of the concealer offers high coverage that reliably conceals impurities of the skin and dark circles under your eyes. simply apply with your fingers and any traces of long party nights or annoying blackheads will disappear ! one kit contains two shades in light and medium beige , which can also be mixed together .
Concealers are an important part of my life because I am *blessed*(?) with awful looking dark circles and acne scars. So coverage is the first thing I look in a concealer and price the second. 😀 Both the concealers of this duo provide light to medium coverage. The concealer on the left has pink undertones while the one on right has yellow undertones. You can use it with a concealer brush but I’d recommend using it with fingers (even though it sounds unhygienic), I have seen some YouTubers using Q tips to pick up cream based products from the pan. Dot the Concealer on the areas where coverage is needed and blend it using your third finger. It’s creamy texture helps to blend it on skin easily. It’s good for covering dark under eye circles only, you will need to use a corrector if you’re trying to cover an acne or scar. It won’t help much if you have really bad dark circles.
What I like about Essence Match 2 Cover Cream Concealer –
• Super duper affordable.
• Texture is easy to work with.
• Provides light to medium coverage.
• Packaging is travel friendly.
What I don’t like about Essence Match 2 Cover Cream Concealer –
• Doesn’t cover acne/scars.
• May crease if you don’t set it with a powder.
• Staying power is 3-4 hours. (Where does it go after that?)
• Only one shade available (= 1 compact with 2 concealers).
Rating - 3.8/5
Go get it if you are blessed with flawless skin and you don’t need much coverage. 😀 This concealer compact is good to carry for touch-ups on the go since it barely takes up any space in your bag. For Rs.299/-, I don’t think anyone would regret buying it. 🙂
I highly recommend essence products because they’re hella affordable, if you’re a newbie to makeup world you can build your makeup kit with essence products in Rs.1500/- or less. I think it’s the best drugstore brand which is available across the world. The most important fact is that they say NO to animal testing and YES to bringing quality products at affordable prices. 🙂
