Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation

I was spending some much needed quality time in a store called Health and Glow in Inorbit Mall Malad.
I was checking the lip balms at the Maybelline stand when i came across this foundation. Now whenever some foundation states "porcelain finish" "airbrush finish" etc and it actually doesn't involve real airbrush makeup I tend to scoff and buy it anyway...LOL...

I tested this light and true to its name Mousse like foundation on on half of my face and really liked what i saw. However the true test lies when you wear it for a long time.

I tried it out for the first time 5 hours ago and I still have it on my face.

First impression: Once i applied to to my entire face with my MAC Stippling brush, i loved how it gave me an instant glow and didn't look like i had a lot of foundation on.
Application: Blended and buffed well into my skin. It was easy to apply. I could take my time buffing it in.
Color tone: Its pretty close to my skin tone without mixing any other color in it.
Coverage: It gives you medium coverage
Packaging: Love that ti comes with a pump. LEARN MAC LEARN
Long wear?: After 5 hours its still there on my skin..I have spent most of my time outside running errands and its still intact. However it now feels like its swimming around on my face due to the humidity we suffer in Mumbai. It gives you a dewey finish mid way however at the 5th hour mark i need to powder my face.

This foundation works well for all skin types in my opinion.

It will be perfect for Dry complexions and for those with an oily skin like mine, you need to add some mattefying powder, primer to your foundation routine.

Bridal Look - Fun Mehendi

Focused on making the skin luminescent 

In keeping with the "Fun Bride" Theme

Against natural light...AMAZING!

Bridal Look 2012

I'm preparing for 2012 wedding season.
I foresee a lot of Color Blocking, Tangerine (2012 color) and quite a few brides opting for "fun outfits/makeup" rather than the traditional opulent outfits and smokey eyes.

So here's my first installment makeup look for the 2012 bride. This is not a tutorial, so you wont be able to see a few of the steps. If you would like to see a tutorial , do leave a comment below.

Light smokey eye with dark kholed eyes.
Contouring / highlighting to achieve high cheekbones and fuller lips.

Contouring on jawline to make it sharper

Used only a lipliner nearest to my natural lip color to make my lips look fuller

Hope you like it!
