Whether you're partial to a cat eye or colorful shadows, this season is all about the statement eye. Sharpen your pencils and dust off your brushes as we take a look at the best new looks from the fall 2012 runways.

The Modern Cat Eye

How To Wear It: Trace on liner using a fine-tipped makeup brush (the better for getting the perfect curve and flicked-up edge) and go for a gel formula with a high-gloss finish to catch the light.
- Harper Bazaar

If you don't have Gel eyeliner...[ Yes it is possible, If you're a make- up novice or have a limited budget or even can't do with Gel eyeliner]
Here a simple trick to Cat eyeliner or substitute for gel eyeliner.

You need: A Black eyeshadow and Eyeliner brush. Thats all.

Damp the bristles of brush and smear in the eyeshadow pot, enough to let the powder the bristles.
Line your eyes with the brush, and shape them according to your need. If you want slight gel eyeliner glossy look, aafter you damp your bristles smear light petroleum jelly on the brush.

Eyeliner using Colorbar Black tie eyeshadow.

Gel Eyeliner, I've used Maybelline Dramatic Gel eyeliner.

Hope you can notice the difference, It is a subtitute after all.
If you want soft defined eyes with less or not much drama, You can always play safe with Black Eyeshadow!
If you're used to Drama and eccentricity, Well I'm not stopping you. :P
I'd love to try it with Matte eyeshadow, you can try colored ones too.

Incase, You're wondering about the products used.

Personally I love using Eyeshadows as eyeliners.

P.S. I'm not claiming that I did Cat eye, this is how I generally wear eyeliner. *Grin*

$20/1000INR Makeup Challenge

I am not much of a Make-up Person, But yes I do love to sit in front of my dressing table and pretend I am doing Make-up. Hah!
I'm more of a Minimalist, I'd play with Eyes or Cheeks... I detest Dark, Waxy Lipsticks.
No Foundations too...( I'm having second thoughts here...)
I'd just put on some Kajal or winged eyeliner with a soft tinted lip balm for College.

For the Challenge I have used:

Lotus 3-in-1 Matte look - 325 INR ( I got it for 295 at Medplusbeauty)
Maybelline Colossal Kajal - 150 INR ( I got it for 135 at Medplusbeauty)
Maybelline Hypercurl Mascara - 200 INR
Maybelline Expert Eyeshadow in Seashore Frost. ( I've to use this up before 2013, I use it daily ;-) ) - 240 INR
Maybelline Lip color Bloom in Peach.- 99 INR

Total: 969 INR including Discounts :P

I've used Lotus 3-in-1 Matte look as Base.
For eyes, I've blended 1.Base ie Mint Colored Eyeshadow with the sponge applicator provided with quad  on the crease, avoided going overboard.
I blended 4.Liner ie Gunmetal green on the corners. Avoided going overboard too.
Tightlined my eyes using Colossal Kajal and lined my Lower lids too.
I've concealed Kajal using 4. Liner from the quad.
Single stroke of Mascara on my lashes and two swipes of Color Bloom on my lips.

Peach Bloom on my Lips

A Light Mint colored sweep on my Lids.

I'm scared of FOTDs, But I don't know how I have the heart to post them.

The Lips that lie...

My Current Obsession lies in: Nivea Fruity Shine Pink Guava.

♥ My Lips but Better ♥

Finding My Lips but better was like Finding Neverland. I am in ♥ all over again with my Obssession for Lipbalms. I have to admit, I catergorize my Lipbalms. My favourites change with season and my moods. Days when I want plain, shiny lips and others when I wear just a hint of color.
I am no Lipstick fan, especially the Dark ones. I Love sheer color and nudes. But with Tinted Lipbalms! Who needs Lipsticks anyways?

Coming to the point, I've found my MLLB, that too a Lipbalm.
Something I can wear all the time, with any eyemakeup or nude eyes.
Days when I'm a fuss and moody, Maybelline Hypercurl Mascara and Nivea Fruity Shine Pink Guava, is what all stay by my side.
I hate the feeling of having something on my lips, but with this I don't care.
This one makes my lips, irresistable to fold them together to feel it is there, right there giving all the love and color my lips need.
But Why I love this most is, This evens out my lip pigmentation on the upper lip. Can't you see? Even though with flash it is visible :-/
No, No I am not reviewing this, I'm sure already everybody has. I'm just overcoming my obsession I have for this pretty Pink Color.

Well you can check the pictures, won't you?

♥ ♥My Obsession on My Lips ♥ ♥

Apart from Lipbalm, One Thing that has Obsessed my mind is: Brighter than Sunshine by Aqualung.OST from ♥ A Lot like Love ♥

My Lips But only Better =)
