Color Series : Colourful Purple Eye Makeup Look for Spring/ Summer

hey beauties... It's time for another pictorial.
Today's look is a very pretty Purplish Pink look. Its gorgeous yet simple and subtle...

Its quite easy and hassle-free. So lets have a look on how to achieve this look...
I have used my Urban Decay VICE 2 palette to achieve this look.

After priming your eye lids, start up by applying a CHAMPAGNE/ BEIGE shade all over the eye lid.

Next define the crease with a  DARK PINK shade

Next apply a SHIMMERY PURPLE shade all over the lid, staying within the crease

Take a CHARCOAL shade and apply it on to the Outer V blending it along the crease

Take a blending brush and grab some BRIGHT PINK shade. Blend it along the crease with the CHARCOAL shade.

Line the lower lash line with a SHIMMERY DARK BLUE shade

Line the upper lash and water line with a BLACK liner and apply coats of mascara and your eyes are done

Team this look with PINK blush and ROSY lips

This completes the look guys. Hope you like it. Do comment below and let me know your views and any other look request if you have for spring and summer.

Busted today, by the beauty police, is the MAKEUP ACADEMY UNDRESS YOUR SKIN SHIMMER HIGHLIGHTER.


  • The highlighter comes in a big compact with a plastic see through lid.
  • The product inside has a wave like pattern, which I love!!
  • I got mine from Jabong.com at Rs 720/-
Lightweight powder that transforms your complexion with luminescent shimmer.


Its a beautiful Shimmery CHAMPAGNE shade. Gives a lovely healthy glow to my skin


  • Its a beautiful soft shimmering champagne shade that suits my Indian skin tone perfectly,
  • Its shimmery but not glittery or heavy or like the one which makes you look like a disco ball. It gives you a nice glow.
  • It gives a noticeable glow on my skin.
  • Its highly pigmented so a slight tap of brush is enough. You need to tap the tiniest amount and blend it on to the area you want to highlight.
  • Caution : Do not use a heavy hand cause this may attract attention to some imperfections like pores or fine lines. But if you apply it with a light loose hand and blend it well, it can give you a lovely shine.
  • It has a smooth texture which is not powdery and blends easily.
  • This is an universal highligher. I use it on my cheekbones, on the inner corner of  my eyes, and some times over a eyeshadow to give a nice shimmer look.
I am totally in love with the MAKEUP ACADEMY UNDRESS YOUR SKIN SHIMMER HIGHLIGHTER. I am sure its going to be my everyday highlighter all summer. Its a must have beautiful highlighter that gives your skin that perfect glow without damaging your wallet.
Its a TOTAL YES for me !!!
Do comment below and let me know your views on this highlighter. Also do share your favourite highlighter.
I will see you guys soon with a new post on a fresh new day, till then keep up the glow, cause you totally worth it !!!

Embrace your body, MY TIPS

Oh she is short, ugly. Oh she is tall, ugly. She is fat, gross. She is thin, pity. Look at her legs, its hairy. OMG her nose is too small. Look he is so dark. That guy is ewwwww bald. She had long hairs, ugly.
Seriously, I am tired of constantly listening to these shits that our society has set. What is beauty? Who is considered beautiful? A person who is tall? NO. A person who is short? NO. Thin? NO. Fat? NO. Who is that ideal person? Each and everyone of us are pulled down by our society. Each and everyone of us, despite of who we are, how we look, have been negatively criticised.

Everyday as soon as we open a magazine, or switch on our televisions, we are constantly fed with the photoshopped definition of beauty. We are all made to feel bad about ourselves. Not only by media but also by people around us. A girl who is a size 16 is called FAT and looked down upon. The same girl when starved her butt off and is now size 0 is called too SKINNY. I mean what is the STANDARD of beauty. Do any of you know? Where is the standard written? I don't know and I am sure you guys dont know either.
There is no hard coded, legal, stamped standard for beauty. But still most of us. No not most. All of us try to reach those standards which doesn't even exists.
WHY? Why we need to change the way we look? Why we need to satisfy others and need praises from them? WHY?????

I have tried all my life to be thin. YES. But I never actually became thin. Because this is how my body is. I have curves, some extra junk in the trunk. A few flabs. I am built that way. I love food. I can't starve myself to be thin. I am healthy, I can't exercise 24/7 and fall ill. I do my bit of things to stay healthy and fit and I am happy with that. Why to try achieve something or to be someone which is not ME.
I have seen people, trying to look like something else and ended up in grave consequences. Our internet floods with examples of plastic surgery addiction, anaeroxia (eating disorder) and many more.
Trust me guys, even if you become "BEAUTIFUL" and fit all the standards defined by our society, still people will find ways to put you down. So why waste your time, money and above all why waste yourself and your life.
Well, I want to share with you my 5 secrets which I have followed to change my perception. To be confident and to accept myself happily as I am.

  1. Stop consuming negativity. Just stay away from things/people which makes you feel bad bout yourself. Makes you feel not so good about yourself. I personally stay away from all such media which feeds me with negativity.Be it any person on social media or any magazine or any particular tv show, I cut them out of my life. Cause boss you have the choice to filter what you consume.
  2. Count your blessings. You may not have the perfect eyes, but atleast you have eyes. You may be fat, atleast you are fit and not having any serious illness. You have food to eat. You have people around you who loves you. Whenever I feel bad about my looks, I think about my blessings.
  3. Trust yourself. This is one of the important thing. You should always have trust on your abilities. Even if someone says you that you are incapable of doing something, you should trust your capabilities and believe that YES I CAN DO IT. Donot ever underestimate yourself for some ignorant person. People will judge, because life is a race and everyone tries to be the best, but some stupid people tried to pull you down constantly by judging you, by making you feel bad everytime. Now its upto you whether you will be pulled back and rise high.
  4. Get all dolled up. Yes, dress up. Wear you favourite dress. Your favourite pair of shoes. Apply makeup. Flaunt your style. And trust me that will boost your confidence this high.
  5. Indulge in Positivity. Always try to surround yourself with positivity. Be it positive people or positive books or positive thoughts or anything. The people we meet, the books we read or the things we come in contact with in our day to day life really affects or inner self and our confidence. So always stay away from negativity.
Well my lovely beauties, I hope my 5tips help you be more confident and positive and above all HAPPY. If you have anything you want to talk about or need any help, remember you have a friend here just a mail away. Do mail me at arpita.fb@gmail.com
See you guys in my next post, till then flaunt yourself cause you totally worth it !!!
