What's in Ananya's Shower?

          Wanna know what I keep in my shower? Well let's find out!!!

Sephora Wishlist!!!

          In a few months time, some really close relatives are going to be traveling from U.S.A. to spend their summers in India. Obviously, I have to take advantage and have made a long wish list with all the makeup products I really want. Here are some of the products I really want from Sephora:

  • Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette: I have already tried the Urban Decay Naked Palette Original and I absolutely love everything about it. I have heard great reviews about this product and I really think the colours are absolutely beautiful. It also seems to have a lot of taupe eyeshadows which is one of my absolute favourite makeup colours.

  • Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes in Glisten and Exposed: These blushes are constantly being mentioned on various beauty videos and blogs and the reviews are NEVER bad. Tarte is doing great with they're "Amazonian Clay" line which not only include blushes, but also foundation, eye products, etc. I already own one of these Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes in Blissful which is one of my favorite blushes ever. Glisten is kind of a softer, more wearable version of Blissful with a gorgeous sheen to it and Exposed is a gorgeous, matte, neutral brown-pink

Would You Rather: Beauty Tag

          I have known about this tag for so long and I really thought that it was a good day to post a beauty tag! Thanks for reading!

1)Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?
ans: Definitely lose all my palettes and eyeshadows. After all, you can always use an eyeliner as an eyeshadow!

2)Would you rather chop of all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
ans: Never be able to cut it again. As long as my hair is clean, its good.

3)Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
ans: CORAL!!!!!! Even though pink is more versatile, coral is one of my favourite makeup colours.

4)If you had $1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
ans: I would probably pay $750 for makeup and $250 for clothes. But since I have to choose only one, obviously, I would spend it on makeup.

5)Would you rather use lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
ans: Eyeliner as lipstick. Remember, there are nude and brown (and sometimes even mauve and pink) eyeliners available in stores, just use them as lipstick!

6)Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
ans: Sephora. I have a lot of MAC items already. And sephora has so many more brands to choose from.

7)Would you rather use only one eyeshadow colour or one lip colour for the rest of your life?
ans: Probably one lip colour for the rest of my life. I need at least two eyshadows to get a good eye look (a matte crease colour and a lid colour). And besides, one nice pink lip colour would almost go with every look I would create.

8)Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
ans: Summer clothes in winter. Only because where I live in Mumbai where its hot all year round, and I do where summer clothes in winter a lot anyway.

9)Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
ans: Bright nails. Its so much more fun. And anyway, I can't live without seeing something brightly colored everyday.

10)Would you rather give up your favourite lip product or favourite eye product?
ans: Give up my favourite lip product. Its easier for me to find a dupe of lip colour than an eye colour.

11)Would you rather be able to wear your hair in a ponytail, or a messy bun?
ans: A ponytail. Mainly for school, and to keep the hair out of my face.

12)Would you rather never be able to paint your nails again or never be able to where lipgloss?
ans: Never be able to wear lipgloss. i can wear shiny lipstick instead. But nailpolish is the one and only thing you can put on your nails to get some colour, apart from press-on nails which I probably will never wear in my entire life.

13)Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them everyday?
ans: Probably sharpie them in everyday. But only if sharpies are available in a soft black shade.

14)Would you rather live without makeup or nailpolish?
ans: Definitely live without nailpolish. I probably love makeup about 3 and a half times better than nailpolish.

Daily Photos (Ananya)

          I wanted to post this picture because its kinda a reason to why I won't be posting as much. You see, our (Mehek and Ananya) written exams have started and I have been studying lately (duh!). We won't be posting too much and we're really sorry. Although, we will be posting again after a week (by then our exams will be over). Thanks for reading!

What's in Ananya's Makeup Bag?

          Today, I'm gonna be talking about the various beauty products that I keep in my makeup bag. Just incase you wanted to know, this is the makeup bag I carry around with me in my bag (or purse) and this is not the makeup bag I carry while I'm traveling. I got this bag in a duty free shopping place thingy, where I found five Estee Lauder mini perfumes which came with a beautiful shiny black bag, with a gorgeous golden zipper that has 'Estee Lauder' engraved on it. 

           I also really like the bag because it has a harder material on the bottom of the bag, as shown below, to make sure that it stands up and doesn't fall down and spread your products all over the place, unlike what some makeup bags do.

Ananya's Hair Routine

          Sooooooooo, I really wanted to write this blog today because I have been ABSOLUTELY LOVING my hair routine lately. I used to use only shampoo and a leave in conditioner after I dried my hair.  I didn't really get why people had so many products in their hair routines. But then I realized that just shampoo was making my hair too dry and even frizzier than it was and the leave in conditioner helped a little, but I hardly saw any actual results. I started using more products for my hair which were actually meant for my hair type and now I get why people use more than two products in their hair routine. 
          Just incase you wanted to know, I have dry, frizzy hair and if I don't wash it again within four days my hair becomes SUPER greasy. I have naturally thick hair and have medium length hair (not too short, not too long).

Ananya's FOTD: 5th January 2012

          Just a note, I have used all of the products from my MAC Glitter and Ice Collection to do this look today.

Eyes: MAC Glitter and Ice Collection Paint Pot in Let's Skate all over the lid and blended out a little bit onto the brow bone, MAC Glitter and Ice Collection Paint Pot in Morning Frost on the outer corner of the lid which was then blended out into the inner half of the lid, MAC Glitter and Ice Collection Mineralize Eyeshadow in Snow Season all over the lid and inner corner, MAC MAC Me Over! Collection eyeshadow in Outre on the crease to blend, Clarins Extreme Black Kohl eyeliner on the lower waterline and winged out, Estee Lauder Sumptuous Mascara on the lower lashes.

Face: MAC Blush in Gingerly 

Lips: MAC Glitter and Ice Collection Dazzleglass in Spanking Rich.

Haul: MAC Glitter and Ice Collection

          So the newest collection released in MAC Stores in India is the holiday collection called Glitter and Ice (which came out in American MAC Stores 2 to 3 months ago!). Its a pretty big collection, and like all holiday collections, it has the eyeshadow sets, lipgloss sets and whatnot. I ended up buying four products which I decided to post on the blog.

My (Ananya's) Top 5 Favourite Fashion Accessories Of The Moment

          So today, I was really in a mood for doing something a little more different than usual. I really wanted to post a blog related to fashion and that is why I decided to share my top 5 favorite fashion accessories with you! I really hope you enjoy this blog post and thanks for reading!

  • Zara Olive Green With Blue Shimmer Infinity Scarf: This is definitely my favorite scarf from my entire scarf collection. It looks sooooo much prettier in real life than the picture because it has more blue shimmer in it when you actually see it. If I had to compare this with a nail polish, I would say that this is in the same colour family as Chanel Peridot nail polish is.
