Show me some love

So my last post was about make-up, especially Kohl. This week I am continuing in the same direction. As I finished my Masters last year, I had a lot of free time and started to explore make-up more. I became fascinated with a day a colour can change one’s face. I love the way how colours play up one’s eyes, can make your eyes stand out, make them bigger etc. Yes! You can probably tell I love eye make-up. I think my eyes are my best feature, and I love dressing them up.

So here is a chance for you to help continue my love affair with make-up and see some exclusive pictures on me. I have entered a contest on smashbox with my video. If I am on the top votes list by Monday, I will get a year of free make-up from smashbox. You can check out my  video here,  and vote for me. You can also use the link here:

I Love Make-Up: all about Kohl

So I guess I have been absent for a really long time.  I have been quite uninspired to write for a while. I have been thinking about writing something for a few days now. I am going to write about make-up since I am in the full swing again.

My first experience with make-up was a long time ago. I was probably 6 or 7 and getting ready for a party at my grand-parents’ house. I was probably pestering ammu as she was putting on her make-up, and she lined my waterlines with kohl. I remember looking into the mirror in amazement and thinking that I was oh so beautiful.  Kohl has always been a staple in my make-up routine.  I wore really thick glasses since I was young, and started  to wear contacts occasionally when I was 13. I would seriously feel naked without my glasses,  so I started to rim my upper and lower lid with Kohl. Even if I don’t put any makeup on, I still have to tight-line my eyes.  I have experimented with so many different kinds over the wear, but finally I found the ones I love and I thought I would share one of them with you:

 L’Oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner in Black: I bought this eyeliner on a whim and instantly feel in love with it. I paid about 10 CAD for it (I think it was on sale). The pencil is short and stubby, and it came it with its own sharpener. If I am doing cat-eyes, I usually resharpened the pencil. The color is very intense and glides on very easily. I found it to be quite water-resistance and lasts me all throughout the day. I can do my eyes under a minute. I will definitely re-purchase this product.

I am seriously in love with eyeliner!  Give this product a try!

***So I have a updates to share.  Hubby got a job in Canada, and will come back in three weeks! So I am super duper excited.

p.s: disclaimer: I am not being paid anyone for this post. I love to recommend good products and want to try out products that have worked for others.
