Here's wishing all of you a great fun filled week ahead.

XOXO

KIM KARDASHIAN WEDDING MAKEUP

Amid much fanfare and hype reality TV star Kim Kardashian finally tied the nuptial knot with Kris Humphries.
The exotic beauty of Turkish ,Russian Armenian, Scottish and Dutch ancestry and trademark raven hair and smoky eyes,decided to go classic with her bridal makeup.

The focus was on almost architectural brows, thick lashes,kohl rimmed eyes and light pink lips and subtle pinkish glow on her cheeks. The makeup was put together by Celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic.
Mario created a semi-smokey eye and winged out eyeliner for Kim,tight lining the upper lash line & lining the lower lash line very lightly to keep the look natural.
The trademark Kim faux lashes were in their resplendent fluttering display with multiple coats of mascara.

CELEBRITY MAKEUP DISASTERS-Part 2 Tanning disasters

Once upon a time, in a galaxy far far away, on a planet called Loompaland lived the Oompa Loompas.These sun worshipers sport orange skin and weird hairdo.

A fateful impact with a giant meteorite threatened the very existence of the Loompas, to preserve the very last of their species they sought refuge on the 3rd rock from the sun a.k.a Earth.

The Loompas took up the humanoid form and mingled amongst the earthlings.

Yes it is true Aliens are here and they walk with us.

Watch the following Exhibits carefully & learn how to spot a Oompa-Loompa

Exhibit A- Anne Hathaway
This gangly female loompa usually masks her orange skin and sports fairer form, but on the days the sun doesn't' come out she reverts to her natural Loompa skin

INCOLOR PROFESSIONAL EYESHADOW SHADE 805 SWATCHES AND REVIEW

My search for a everyday wear, all over lid eyeshadow has been on for ages. I looked hi end, mid-end to no end when I found this little nugget tucked away at Reliance Mart Incolor cosmetics counter (No relation to Jordana Incolor cosmetics).

I wanted a soft shimmery,easy to wear non fussy eyeshadow which would be great for all over lid application for a light wash of color.
I fell in love with this beautiful bronzed champagne colored shadow, in the pan in day light it has a pewter shade to it, but once blended on the eyelid a soft wash of bronze champagne is the principal shade you see.

OMG!! GRAZIA ADMITS TO DIGITALLY SLIMMING DUCHESS CAMBRIDGE WAISTLINE FOR ROYAL WEDDING ISSUE!!!

It was only 5 weeks back that us girls were wondering Duchess Catherine where have all the curves gone?
The unanimous voice in which all the readers appreciated her healthier version (circa 2004) gave me hope that Thank God the healthy female form is still in vogue. Now imagine my horror of horrors when I read Grazia Magazine's confession that they had digitally altered Duchess Cambridge's waistline for their Royal Wedding UK issue published in May 2011.
