December Decode + MEGA Giveaway

We came, we saw, we wore and now we are off to another year of impeccable style and makeup. Every year, the fashion and beauty arena changes and isn’t it amazing how quickly we adapt to it? Well, It is Mid December already and I am not ready to bid 2014 goodbye; So, here’s a round up of what 2014 gave us and how you can GET THE LOOK:

Style :
1. Metallic tattoos : What are they? Silver and gold foiled body art tattoo’s that are meant to look like artificial jewellery. They are temporary tattoo’s that take 30 seconds for application and last for over a week. These shiny tattoo’s were spotted on the Bootylicious Diva Beyonce when she was boarding a private jet. Here’s a simple DIY to make your own foil tattoo : Draw the layout of your design with L’oreal’s Frosted Silver Eye Liner and spray some Hair Spray on it and let it dry! It should stay for 4 days or so.

2. Statement Jewellery : Body chains are dainty and ladylike that can instantly enhance your flattering figure. I personally feel they should be worn on solid colored crop tops to attract attention since they are very thin and delicate. Also, body chains are best worn under shirtless suits and over bikinis. Want a more unconventional touch? Try Maang Tikka’s in the style of Mohawks’, Hand Harnesses and Ear Cuffs.

3.  Power Dressing : SUIT UP WOMEN! Workwear just got more bold with shirtless suits and bold colors and prints. Not only were international celebrities like Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift seen in this trend but also, our very own Bollywood beauties carried off this trend with immense style and sophistication.

4. Co ordinates : Matching your tops to your bottoms are known as coordinates. Coordinates basically solve the exhausting dilemma of What to wear? Mix and Match? Nah. Match and Match is the new rule. Either the color, the print or the fabric should be similar to be called as coordinates.

Makeup :
1. Metallic Touches – A less dramatic alternative to smokey eyes is the metallic eye trend which consists of the same flirty charm to add intensity and dimension to your eyes. Get the metallic look by lining the inner corners of your eyes with L’oreal Eye Liner 112 Frosted Silver and dap some clear gloss on your eye lids for a subtle day time look. For immediate attention to those eyes, especially when you are out there partying the night away, add a sultry touch of Infallible 15 Flashback Silver eye shadow with the tip of your finger.
2.Bold Lips – Go Bold or Go home! Yes, experiment a little and swap those shades of nudes and pastels and with bold tones of red, fuschia and oxblood. Get the look with L’oreal Paris’ Infallible Forever Fuschia 138 and Charismatic Coral 421

3.Bare Minimum – You know what is better than makeup? To look like you’ve got no makeup on and garner those “You look so natural” compliments! Get the natural and fresh no makeup look with the True MatchLiquid Foundation. Accentuate those eyes with L’oreal Paris’ Volume MillionLashes Mascara and a hint of Kajal Magique. Here’s a tip – Blend Blend Blend till you achieve perfection!

Bare Minimum

4. Sombre Hair – Ombre is overdone and over-hyped. It’s time for Sombre i.e Soft Ombre. Sombre is more subtle as the light color evenly blended and textured throughout your hair. Ask your hairstylish to blend L’oreal Paris' Excellence Creme Natural Dark Brown and Natural Light Brown for a natural looking sombre!

Now that you know what 2014 has been all about, let's talk something more delicious for the makeup fanatics!

  11. 1. Nail trends- bling is the new thing. It makes a great style statement.
    2. Make up trends- Get fresh-faced with radiant, dewy skin with the perfect complexion, for a look that will take you through from day to night. For this starry eyed look, there’s a secret weapon involved: white eye makeup. Liquid liner in bright, white ivory will open up peepers for a wide-eyed look, while a wash of iridescent pearly white gives an instant touch of natural shimmer, that’s perfect for the heaven-sent, ethereal look.
    And for the night look smoky eyes and bold eye shadows were the trends.
    3. Hair trends- ombre and sombre were a great hit this year. To make a bold statement girls cut their hair short. For eg. Lily Collins jennifer aniston anushka sharma and even sonakshi sinha.

  12. For me LOREAL means alot...i am using most of its product and they are awesum..i have tried loreal spa which is really very very effective, u can take up spa at home nw..ILOVELOREAL..

  13. first of all happy anniversary! :D may you celebrate many more such anniversaries!

    This season I realized that i can totally rock the colour red hence for me fashion statement for 2014 will be Hot Red! It is one such colour that will never go out of style. It spices up everything and gives that extra oomph to the look, not to forget it instantly brightens up your dull life! I've paired the stunning red dress in the first picture with L'Oreal Paris Color Roche eyeshadow quad, with obviously an intense dramatic eyeliner using Kajal magique and as the cherry on the cake I used the new Loreal Infallible Le Rouge lipstick!
