Yesterday I asked you all to guess what was wearing in the FOTD, remember? Well heres the scoop.

I started off with obsessing over Aria Montgomery's (Lucy Hale's) makeup in Pretty Little Liars. I like the subtle smokey eyes, the strong eyebrows and a berry lip she dons!
I've been trying to do something like that for sometime now! But it always looks odd because I have very scanty eyebrows otherwise:P
Plus my hair is VERY straight. I tried curling it and it fell flat in 5 minutes! :/
This was the third time I tried this look and I still think it is nowhere similar. This is my version of it. I'm definitely more comfortable this way and I'll go all out next time and try to do this exactly!
Ugghhh i just watched the new episode of PLL... What did I do?!!! I have half a mind to delete this but I'll just put it up anyway! OK No jokes at my expense!:P Please!!!

This is my coloured version of it-
I dint have another picture with my eyes open!:P

See, Anshita, My lips are flaky!:P
So for the winners, *drum rolls*
[You were all partially correct BTW :P I'm good! I'll do this every week!! :D Like Guess Wednesday!~ Fun for people undergoing midweek crisis! =P or something:P]

Poohkie (You are so darn LUCKY!)\
Ankita (You were the closest) :)
Appu (Its good to follow me on twitter. :P Learn from her people who don't)!
Shivani (Helps having all the blushes MAC manufactures:P)
Laiqah (You're wild guess was bang on!) :D

So the blush is MAC Melba (With a teeeny tiny help from MAC Frankly Scarlet)
Lipsticks were MAC Cosmo + MAC Brick-O-La (mixed them together)
Brick-O-La & Cosmo
& The eyeshadows were totally wild! I don't own any proper eyehadow. So this was all created/mismatched. :P
I dusted my eyelids with MAC MSF Natural after priming them with MAC Rubenesque Paintpot (Click for Review)
I used the darkest brown from the Maybelline Chai Latte Quad in the outer corner and brought it i the crease.
Clinique Mascara
Tight-lined with Revlon Kohl & Dust the same dark brown on the lower lash line. In the inner corners I used the highlight shade from the Chai Latte quad.
Filled in my brows with the dark brown.

You Like?

Disclosure: I DO NOT recommend you buy anything from any company that tests on animals. I know Maybelline does. Not being a hypocrite here. I have had the quad for a long time and will use it at my will. I wont however buy from them till go cruelty free. Please read the full disclosure if you must.



  1. Your face is glowing! And those lips!!
    Ikky ji (note the respect), can you pls tell me your beauty ecret so that i can look half as pretty as you..

  2. hahah yes love, I will. Its called highlighter.

  3. I know Ikky is never modest, so this has to be a lie :P Seriously, you look like a doll! touchwood.

  4. hahaha nooooo!!! don't saayy that!:P:S:S I get uneasy when complimented. I should put more dorky pictures:P and YOUUU are verryyyy sweeet!!!mmmwah!

    secondly from one animal lover to another- yes! I posted this link in my Splurge vs Save post and its there to the left of this page with the bunny on it.. :)

  10. the list is so frustrating, and the sadder part is-most of the companies that dont test on animals are NOT available here!!

  11. I know ya,, that is true!
    Concentrate on MAC, The Body Shop, Revlon, Avon & Oriflame. These DON'T AT ALL and are easily available here. :) I wish there was more drugstore too.. Revlon with everything over Rs700 isn't exactly drugstore-ly priced!

  12. again, you got me less hooked on to the post and more on the photos :) (nope, i m not a bi :) but i think one should always admire beauty )
