Review: Rimmel London Colour Show Off Lipstick - Shocking Pink

Here goes my review on Rimmel London Color show off lipstick, which I bought from Germany. I particularly chose to buy this typical bright shocking pink shade, coz I had all nude shades till then and I wanted to experiment with bright shades! Also, the bright color made me feel good while shopping in gloomy, cold and rainy weather of Germany. It was priced around 6 - 7 Euros at Muller. More her >>>

Review: Neutrogena Moistureshine Gloss, Swatches

I began to use Neutrogena brand long back, when I was in US. The first product I bought of this brand was a liquid foundation, which was my first foundation of all. And, as expected I chose the wrong shade and had to throw it away. The second thing I bought sometime back was thisNeutrogena Moistureshine LipGloss, which apparently happens to be my first tinted lipgloss too, as before this I was used to only lipsticks or lip balms.

It took me a while to get used to the concept of glosses. I bought the shade 04 Glimmer. More here >>>

Review: Annemarie Borlind - Pura Soft Q10 Eye Area Care

Out of three products I bought in Germany, for treating my eyes and the dark circles, I liked Annemarie Börlind - the most. The other two products that I bought and didn't work with me were Garnier Under Eye Anti-Dark Circles creamandGarnier Under Eye Anti-Dark circles concealer roll on.

Review: Garnier Roll on Anti Dark Circles concealer and Garnier Anti Dark Circles Cream

Last time, when I went to Germany and found myself with loads of time in my hand standing in front of all the plethora of brands available, there was nothing much to do but shopping. I always love to experiment with brands and thought of giving some products a try. Moreover, I loved to shop there coz of less crowd. Can't imagine the same kind of shopping in Bangalore. Anyways, here I review some of the products I bought there for healing under eye dark circles, two of these are available in India too; the third one can be bought from Amazon (depending upon its availability). I bought the following three products for healing under eye dark circles:

- Garnier under eye anti-dark circles cream :                            Price 9 Euros
- Garnier under eye anti-dark circle roll on concealer:             Price 11 Euros
- Annemarie Borlind Eye cream :                                               Price 20 …

My Weekend Beauty Shopping

I wasn't well last weekend, so when it came to the act of cheering myself up - there couldn't be any better things than shopping for a bunch of stuffs for myself!! :-). As I was bedridden, I ordered few stuffs online for oriflame products. And I was feeling a bit better on Sunday night, so simply went and roamed around the Lifestyle mall.

Irrespective of my sour throat and bad health, I was extremely happy.More here >>>

It has been since ages, when getting a natural flush on the cheeks became one of the most important makeup entity in a woman's makeup regime.

Something on ArtRage

Makeup Artist As a Profession

A makeup artist also known as a ‘cosmetologist’ essentially works on putting on makeup to people for achieving a desired effect. The perfect makeup for a person generally reckons on lots of components and a makeup artist has to take into account these factors like skin tone, event, photographer’s needs, brands available, colors and various other stuffs, in order to formulate his makeup procedure that can meet the demands.
The preparation for becoming a professional makeup artist can start from high school where you can make the best use of art classes and get innovative with colors and tones. Try getting as much as you can from the fashion magazines and get creative with the makeup application on your friends. Always make it a point to store your makeup skills by clicking the photographs of your work and saving in an album, which you can later use as a portfolio. You can also join various professional makeup training programs and courses to get the desired makeup certification.
