We had our freshers party and they kept it after college..Imagine! So after college we had just 30 mins to change and get ready and to reach the venue..so we had to make it quick. As soon as lectures got over we all rushed to the washroom..I changed into my black dress and the super fast make up session began!
1st applied Vaseline total moisture on d face, hands n legs. Then Garnier BB cream. Then I applied the Maybelline colossal kajal below the eyes n even used the same on eyelids. And last but not the least Revlon lipstick…thaat shade is my fav..bloody looks soo natural..and tadaaa we r ready done!!! So that’s it..my 5 min makeup session done…ready to rock!


Entry 3: Greeshu Iyyany

Products used:
Melagard 50+ sunscreen protects against uva & uvb
Maybelline eyestudio lasting drama gel eyeliner
Maybelling the falsies volum express waterproof
Lakme compact powder using fluffy powder brush
Oriflame glossbooster in peach
This is my safe everyday without worrying about weather and all LOOK. I apply products in the same manner I have listed them above.
Though ponds bb cream have good spf but i can’t take risk as i have an acne prone and oily and TAN PRONE skin, so i use it with my sunscreen. This combination doesn’t make my face oily and the final touch by compact powder because it reduces left out oilyness. Mascara I just do one stroke and I get damn sweaty soIi go for safer one for me and the gel liner..yes i apply both on upper(more) and lower eyelid, this helps as I am not using any eyeshadow. Finally my gloss, its lovely as it instantly gives my face a glam up look. I don’t like using foundation or eyeshadow on normal days as they make me more conscious. I know u asked for 100 words but had to explain whole thing so!

Entry 4: Niha

This is not my own pic, my aunt volunteered to be my model for this contest and her pics are being used with her permission. My inspiration for this look is the cheerful and colourful festive season this month,where we are showered with so many festivals and occassions every other day and it gets boring to deck up loads of makeup everyday…so here is an eye-catching  yet simple makeup that can be done in 5mins and worn to suit the cheerful festive atmosphere.

Steps and products used:
1) Dab a flawless concealer like..pixi flawless vitamin concealer (medium) on blemishes and under eye and blend well.
2) Apply a lightweight glowy long wear foundation like..too faced illuminating wand foundation (new york lights)
3) Quickly brush a good compact all over face to set your makeup n keep away oil ..i used avon ideal shade oil control pressed powder(medium)
4) Use a gold eyeshadow all over lids (i used VOV color song mono eyeshadow in gold shade) create a subtle v-shape with a dark brown shadow on the outer corners of eyelids and on the crease,blend well with blending brush
5) Line upper lid just above lashline with a good black kohl like revlon colorstay one stroke eye pencil..and smudge it with a smudger brush to create smokey effect
5) Define lashes with one coat of a good black mascara..like oriflame 2FX mascara
6) Use a classic nude shade on lips like NYX frappuchino..n you’re done!! :)

2. Chambor Eye Shadow Trio – Dazzling Spnix (Gold)
3. Sigma Angled Eye Liner Brush E65
5. Revlon Super lustrous Lipstick Love That Red
6. Covergirl Lashblast Fusion Mascara
I saw this unique eye liner design while flipping the weekly Brunch pages and I knew that I had to try it. The model showcasing the Lakme Sabhyasachi collection here, stole my heart. I don’t own that pretty golden eye liner, so replaced it with a gold eye shadow which didn’t really worked. I am loving the curved angles that are created on the outer corner of the eyes.. .. it’s a fish tail! The lower wing didn’t came out that well .. A bit more curve and sharp edges would have looked nice but for the first shot I can live with that.

2. Avon Ideal Shade Pressed Powder.
3. Elle 18 Black Out Liner.

I am a big retro fan, we all are. So, to get ready in the morning is a big deal for me especially when i am in hurry! Recently I found my best friend and that is my Lakme CC Cream, it gives me a decent coverage and within one minute, I get clear and even toned face. Next, I apply my compact power to set the cream. For my eyes I have only applied eye liner as cat eye and then kajal and mascara. As retro inspired look, a bright matte lipstick is one vital part. Thus finally my Maybelline Colorsensational Bold Matte Mat5 helps me complete this look.

3. L’Oreal Infallible Gel Eye Liner – Blackest Black
4. Sigma Angled Eye Liner Brush E65
5. Lakme CC cream – Bronze
7. Covergirl Lashblast Fusion Mascara
About the Look:- It has been so long that I did something including black on my eyes as I was in a **Indulging Colors** mode.  To give them a break and use my favorite Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye shadows I did this super-simple *Glistening Gray Eyes with a touch of Pink* Eyes. I applied the Audacious Asphalt all over the lids using my ring finger..trust me it give better application.
The eye makeup looks incomplete without winged eye liner and to double up the fun I added another wing along the lower lash line with a bit of pink in between
For lips, I opted for a Fuchsia Pink long-lasting lip stain from Revlon, the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Stain in Smitten. These Revlon lip Stains not only last whole day but gives a plumped look to my lips.
