TUESDAY | 7 DAYS, 7 LOOKS.


 Its day 2 of my 7 days 7 Looks series. Tuesdays are much better than Mondays; I am usually up early and have time to dress up a little better than mondays.

The highlights of today's look are the hairstyle and the bottle green, embellished, mandarin collar shirt from ELLE. My bangs are always the first one to get oily on 2nd day hair, so I like to braid them up to the side. To achieve this braid, pull out a small section of hair from where your parting starts, divide it into 3 sections, and start braiding normally. After braiding once, incorporate small sections of hair into the braid only from the front side. Continue incorporating small sections until you reach your ears, then start braiding normally till you run out of hair. Take the braid and pull it towards your crown, make sure you've positioned it right, and secure it with two bobby pins criss-crossing each other. You can pull out hair from your crown to hide the bobby pins so that you can't see where the braid ends. Click here to watch the video tutorial for this hairstyle.

I used the same products on my face and eyes as shown in my previous look. I added a hint of colour on my eyes with the Lakmé Absolute Forever Silk Eye liner in Jaded Mint, which is in the same shade as my shirt, and drew a subtle winged liner on my eyes. This liner is so soft, pigmented and long lasting. You get an opaque line with just one stroke, and it's really easy to draw a winged liner with this since its so soft.

I lined my lips using the Colorbar Definer Lip Liner in Berry Rose and filled it in with Lakme Absolute Matte Lipstick in Pink Promise. I love the rosy pink colour achieved using these two products together. I have been really liking matte lipsticks lately because of how long lasting they are. If this shade is too loud for you, you can opt for any nude or pale pink lipstick instead. If you are confused about which nude lipstick to wear, you can read my post on the Top 5 Nude Lipsticks for Indian Skin tones and find out one best suited for you.
