MAC needs no introduction! Does it? 

Well, I turned a MAC lover at the time of my first photoshoot for the products worked so well on my skin, as if they were made just for me. And now I'm a complete MAC loyalist.

Here is what my makeup closet from the their range of cosmetics includes :

1.MAC Pro Longwear SPF 10 Foundation : This foundation  is now my go-to option and I wonder what I could have done without it! I use the shade NC45 and I must say - it makes my skin appear flawless. The best thing about it is it does not melt and gives me that no-foundation look. What else can one ask for! It offers sun protection too!

2.MAC Pro Longwear Concealer: I were in a different world altogether until I found the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer (Shade NW40) which just works like a magic wand on my skin. Not that I have a bad skin, but it conceals everything I want to. It's my most favorite product of all that I own from MAC. 

3.Loose Powder : This powder really suffices my need to set my make up for I don't like to use a pressed powder. It provides a sheer, matte velvety coverage that I absolutely love.

4. Have a Lovely Day- Casual Colour Lip & Cheek Color : This is one thing that I always carry in my  bag. It's a neutral dusty rose-beige shade that I often use on my cheeks and lips. It creates a beautiful effect on the cheekbones and the subtlety of it is what I like.

5. Goldenroad satin- eye shadow: I were on a look out for a shade in yellow for a long time and my search finally ended at MAC. I use this shade along with a bright green or orange eye shade to create a playful look.

6. Atlantic blue- eye shadow : This is a beautiful shade that I usually use when going out for a party.
    It adds a bit of drama to the eyes and makes you a look a li'l bold yet mysterious.

7: Candy yum yum: This is my latest buy from MAC and like the name suggests, it truly looks yum yum. It just brightens my face and what I like about it is it's matte texture. 

   So what's your favorite from MAC?

"Our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time"-Jean Paul Richter

So many birthdays that have been celebrated and so many more to come. Birthdays are such great fun, except for the fact that they remind you that you're getting old! Hmm!! But the best part about them is that with every birthday you see a more refined version of you in every way.

It's my birthday on the 13th of June and I reset myself with loads of energy and a hope that every thing I dream of this year would come true by next birthday just like my shopping wishlist does.

Every year before my birthday, I get ready with a wishlist that includes all the things I've craved for the whole year and head out on a guilt-free shopping spree.  And as I buy every thing on my list, the crazy shopping demons inside me start to calm down. Lol. I'm such a shopping maniac! So this time too, I'm ready with my wishlist and plan to acquire every single thing I've been eyeing this year, unless someone out there in this world is planning to get me all of these (just kidding), anyway, let's get started! The first one on my list is this tote by MANGO that I've been swooning over! Anyone who knows me knows that I'm a big-bag lover for I love to carry the whole world in it including fruity moisturizers, miniature perfumes, eye gels, glasses, lipcolors, blushes, dark chocolate and what not.

Next is a leather jacket by MANGO again. Man! I'm in love with it and guess.. it's high time I steal it :-P

Now comes the Big thing! Canon 600D is what I've been desperately waiting to own!  Dear God, please be sweet to me this time! 

The other things that I really need are those that are going to be a part of my essentials list. That sexy skort by Sheinside.com,  that pair of smart brogues,  a lovely matte lipshade by MAC (Mehr) and  that insanely hot pair of cutoff shorts by ZARA.

 1.Tote (MANGO) here
 2.EOS 600D : here

   5.Brogues : here

If you're someone who loves to party and likes to keep it classy yet sassy,  then a black sequined jacket is something you cannot miss to have in your wardrobe.

I just couldn't wait to design one for myself for my love for Black & Bling . The best thing about it is that you can throw it over a plain black, white, beige blouse or a tank top.
Team it with a nice short leather mini skirt or a party trouser and you're ready to make those heads turn!

The look I styled is a li'l bold with bright lips and lots of mascara on the eyes. If you're not comfortable carrying it, add kohl drama to the eyes and keep the lips subtle.

The key is to go easy on the eyes when doing the lips just so that you don't look made up.

Going high on heels will only add oomph to the look!

I tried to match my nail color with my shoes to break the monotony of black

Now! Wear a sexy perfume! A nice clutch to go with it! And you're ready to give that glitter ball at the disc a freaki'n crazy complex!

Dress for the Applause!

Ahh! Despite the scorching heat, I'm lovin' this summer! Reason? The trends this season!

Here are my most favorite picks from the Spring/Summer 2014 trend!

Bold Strong Eyebrows: Take an inspiration from Cara Delevingne! Bold eyebrows stand to be one of the biggest trends of 2014. Give those regular tweezing sessions a break (unless you're naturally blessed with thick and strong looking brows) and treat them with castor oil every night till you see a good difference in the thickness. Tweeze the extra hair to shape them once you achieve the  desired density.

Crop Tops: Needless to say, these are truly in vogue this season. Pair them up with denims,palazzo pants or a long maxi skirt and dare to flaunt that sexy midfriff!

Sheinside.com has some hot collection of crop tops that I just can't wait to lay my hands on :-D . Shop them here !

Distressed jeansThis doesn't give you an excuse to indulge and blow your budget up! Pull out your old pair of denims and distress them for that cool, comfy yet oh-so-chic look. These are a must have now!

Maxi Dresses: Guess I'll never get over them! :-)  Lemme tell you, Maxi dresses always top my go-to options list. The best thing about Maxi dresses is that you can underplay the look by throwing on a denim jacket for that casual day out with your girlfriends or layer it with a blazer/ leather jacket for that hot date with your boyfriend. Maybe, they would never be 'so-last-season'.

Brogues: Be it  a brunch with your friends or a day at work, brogues can only make you look smart! Pair them with ankle length pants or denim shorts to draw attention to your ankles or with a floaty skirt for that feminine look.

So! Rock the trend and dress for the applause!
