Victoria's secret eyeshadow swatches and review.

So this was my first purchase of victoria's secret makeup. After dropping my daughter at her school I went to the mall to spend my free time shopping around, and thats when I came across these eyeshadows at the Victoria's Secret store. I was instantly attracted towards them and specially because of their packaging. I am a sucker for single eyeshadows, I wear it or not I keep hoarding them.
 And when I saw these cute eyeshadows I could not resist but bought them, as this was my first purchase
 and I was not sure of its pigmentation and color payoff I bought only two of them.                                                

 Ok so for the review part now, lets start with the pros, firstly its highly pigmented. The color pay off is great too. Now lets talk about the cons , yes its a bit chalky specially the wet dry shadow, but using it with a good primer you can easily avoid fall outs. Overall they are really good and I am happy with the purchase and hopefully will buy more of them soon.

How to make your thin lips look pouty naturally(Requested)

Ok so every girl wants that pouty, full and attractive lips. Its a blessing for those who have it naturally but for those who don't , you can have it in few quick and easy steps. Before demonstrating the steps below, I would like to share something. Before I  used to think I have really full, pouty and plum lips but then, if my friend Disha never requested me to help her get pouty & full lips, I would have never tried it and would never know the difference and am really loving it. You can see the instant change.
So all u need are:
these are the products that i used

a concealer
a lip liner
a mate lipstick(color of your choice)
a moisturizing lipstick(same color as the mate)
a lip gloss matching ur lipstick color
a neutral color lip gloss
and a brush/ lip gloss aplicator

First take your concealer and apply it and conceal your lips and blend in your concealer well using a brush.

Next take your lip liner and start out lining your lips. Make sure you go beyond your actual lip line to give the illusion of fuller and plum lips. Be careful  you do not want to over do it. 

Now take your mate lipstick
 and apply it on your lips. 

Next take your moisturizing lipstick and 
apply on top of the mate lipstick.

            Now take your lip gloss
            and apply on your lips 
            over the lipstick

Now take the neutral color lip gloss
 and apply it onto the cupid's bow  
and center of bottom lips.

                                                                               Lastly take your brush 
and blend in the lip gloss

lightly and u get plum, pouty,
 full and attractive lips instantly

Hair routine, how to get long beautiful hair.

From a very small age I have very long hair, but then my mom was always there to take care of it, but now me being a mom myself and being busy and out the entire day its tough to maintain my long hair. But still I always prefer long hair as it suits me a lot ,so how do I take care of it? Basically, I do nothing out of the ordinary. First of all I should be thankful that I have such lovely hair (no self praising or braging just the truth) I think genetically I am blesses with great hair so I generally do not have to do a lot to maintain them , all I do is shampoo and condition my hair. 
Yes I have a few problem firstly dandruff and secondly split ends. So for the first problem I try to keep my scalp clean by shampooing my hair every other day and also I am very particular about what shampoo I use.(I am going to list all the product at the end). For split ends I avoid teasing my hair by using less heat and chemicals on my hair and also trim my hair timely. I have oily dandruff so my hair becomes very oily so I shampoo every other day and try and keep my scalp clean. I make sure I use minimal amount of chemicals on my hair. I also do not expose my hair to to much heat and dirt. I try to use my straightner and blow dryer as less as I can. And I drink plenty of water which helps maintain the shine of my hair. This is my simple and easy hair care routine. And I like it this way, I guess overdoing with hair by using every other product in the market does not help, at least not in my case.

Selsun blue
Shampoo used by me , and I think is the best 
if u have dandruff.

 Pantene flat to volume conditioner
    Condtioner used by me.

 Nexus maximum Hair spray
 Only spray used by me only
 when I curl my hair
 to hold the curls longer.
