Makeup Looks & Makeup Shopping Based on IMBB Recos :)

by Sweta J on November 16, 2010 · 48 comments


This is my post for the makeup haul & makeup look based on IMBB tutorials.

I cannot state how much I have learned from IMBB.All that put together I am writing this post. Hope you guys like it. I would request all of you makeup pros to HONESTLY comment & state how they look on me & what can I do to improve it.

First of all let me show you a very small fraction of the makeup that I bought based on IMBB reviews.
Because I personally wanted to try each of the makeup items I took soo long to post this :) Here is my take on all the products purchased.

Make up haul

Make up haul

1. Maybelline Colossal Volum Express Mascara (water proof): love it…it actually makes my lashes soo dense…the only thing is that it takes sooo much effort to come off..:(
2. Maybelline Diamond Glow Eyestudio in Gray Pink: I didn’t quite like this when I first tried but I now mix it with other palettes to create the desired look. beside i think its too shimmery & there is fall out too.But I quite like the shades.

3. Maybelline Eyestudio Vivid & smooth liner- It is the golden shade- i soo very much wanted a golden cream eyeliner & this totally fits the bill. The color is not OTT & it looks good with my eye color too.

4. Lakme Eye color quartet in Peacock- i wanted an eye makeup palette with some vibrant shades which I could combine with other shadows. The quartet itself is not enough to give you a single look. but with other shades its pretty. There is fall out but the overall look & some care makes me like this palette.

5. Elle 18 Eye Sparklers in Blue Blast- not a very good color payoff but what can you expect for Rs. 80.

All the above have been reviewed earlier. Apart from these I bought- Maybelline Eyestudio Vivid & smooth liner in grey & green (love these pencils)

Phew..hope I am nt forgetting any!!!!! Do not have my camera so could not put up photos. But I like most of what i bought.

Finally the looks!!!!
I had asked IMBB to suggest me makeup for my cousins wedding. I was surprised with the beautiful tutorials & suggestions. Based on what i learnt, i tried these looks. Do let me know how they have turned out on me!!! (only HONEST comments please) :)
1. Red Lips & green lined eyes

2. Blue & gold eyes
