Mornin Ladies !

How have you been ?

I've been good. Work is great but can also get very stressful. We had Vogue.in's first anniversary party on Thursday and it was a blast. So not stuck-uppy. Everybody loosened up and got on the floor. Boss, big boss - everybody.

And now its that time after a party when the pictures come back and you you find all those embarrassing drunk pics. Good Lord. Lets not go there.

Here is a pic of mine from the party. I know, its first time sharing a full face pic. Cant say I am not nervous but Mumbai making me slightly more brave.


Makeup Used:

1. Smashbox Photo finish Primer
2. Revlon Photo ready concealer
3. Milani Brow Kit
4. Sleek Palette - Dirty bronze color on lid.
5. Lancome Artliner - black
6. Carmindy for Sally Hansen Blush - Cherub
7. Three Custom Colors Lipstick - Majorca
8. Julie Hewett Lipstick - Belle Noir

Lessons learned:

1. If you are having a fairly good skin day - skip the foundation.
2. If its a dim lit setting, go for a bright lipstick . It pops well in pictures especially when you are wearing something as boring as black.
3. Revlon Photoready concealer is the bomb. It really is perfect for pictures.
4. Blotting sheets are a must in your bag.
5. A blow dry before a big party is totally worth it.
6. So is a pedicure / manicure. I went with a soft almost wedding-y color - O.P.I - Kiss on the cheek.
7. Go ahead , have fun even if its a work thing. No body is going to remember a thing the next day. Not even you will.

Umm...If you like this. I'll have up more makeup break downs now on.

Hi! I have 2 questions:

1) What shade of Revlon PhotoReady concealer did you use?

2) To help us get a better idea of your face makeup colors (and how they fall on the shades scales compared to our own colors), do you mind telling us your foundation shades for some popular brands (L'oreal, MAC, Cover Girl, etc.)?

Thank you!

I love the bright lip color!

You are so cute!

WOC don't age, or rather age very slowly. I'm told I look like I'm in my mid to late 30s, I'm 48. So you'll appreciate looking younger than your age when you get to be my age!

Hello dear. Who do you work for at Vogue India? My associates do not know you and I would hate to think you were an imposter! Your picture is lovely but please confirm that you are actually working for Vogue India. Thanks and Namaste. ~Krishna
