3 EYE MAKEUP LOOKS WE LOVED THIS WEEK COURTESY BOLLYWOOD

Like everyone else out there Insta stalking celebrities is our guilty pleasure too! Apart from their fashion choices and travel diaries, we have totally been crushing over some edgy and trendy eye makeup we spotted this week. From emerald green to popping purple, these starlets aren’t afraid to make a bold statement with their eye looks!
Read more to see which looks we loved and how you can get them!


Janhvi Kapoor’s emerald eyes


Janhvi was recently spotted at the launch of Louis Vuitton’s Ready to wear collection. Apart from her dramatic sleeved pale yellow blouse, we simply loved her bold green smokey eyes. She let her eyes do the talking and kept the rest of her makeup very simple and minimalistic. Filled in brows, well contoured cheeks and some nude lipstick!

Get the look with:



Sonakshi Sinha’s blue eyes

@AsliSona is one of our favourite celebs to check out every time we want some dramatic eye makeup inspiration. She never shy’s away from trying out new eye makeup to accentuate her beautiful almond eyes. She added a touch of color to her dramatic double wing liner with the lovely aqua blue eye shadow. Beach waves and bare lips complimented her eyes perfectly.
Get the look with:


Yami Gautam’s Bronze Glitter Lids

Yami Gautam stepped out sporting these bronze glitter lids that had us drooling at the first sight. Simple to do yet so high on glamour; these lids totally got us in the weekend mood. Certainly one of our favourite eye makeup looks from the week that was.

Go all out dramatic with this bold look with a neon colour eyeshadow, extend it outwards to form a cat eye.

Tightline your lower lash line with a striking blue liner for this gorgeous effect.

[Sponsored Review] Crystal Vivian, Dizoneye Grey, Geo Starmish

Lensvillage has sponsored me three pairs of lenses to review!



Life Span : 1 Year
Diameter : 16.5mm
BC : 8.6mm 
Water Content : 38-42%




I absolutely adore these lenses! They are so comfortable and natural looking! I am super happy with this pair!





Comfort:
     /5
This is the most comfortable pair out of the three by far! I can wear them all day and no irritation at all! I am so impressed!

Design:
   /5
I really like the design. It looks quite natural and make the eyes look very watery. I was actually hoping that these lenses will make my eye colour look as light as the promo pictures but I think that can only be achieved under bright lighting.

Enlargement:
   /5
I like the enlargement effect! 


Life Span : 1 Year
Diameter : 14.5mm
BC : 8.6mm 
Origin: South Korea









Comfort:
   /5
The first time I wore these lenses they weren't very comfortable. My eyes felt dry and I had to constantly use eyedrops. The next couple times I wore these lenses, they weren't as bad.

Design:
  /5
I have been wanting to try these lenses for a long time because Leah Dizon makes them look really good! Unfortunately, they look very normal and natural on the eyes.

Enlargement:
  /5
At 14.5mm, it is one of the smaller, natural sized lenses on the market



Life Span : 1 Year
Diameter : 15mm
BC : 8.7mm 
Manufacturer: Geo Medical
 








Comfort:
 /5
I don't know if it is because I received a faulty pair of lenses or what, but one of the lenses was so uncomfortable! I could only wear these lenses for around one hour to take these photos and when I took them off, one of my eyes was very uncomfortable and red! I found this very strange because I have had no problem with all the other Princess Mimi lenses and they are actually the brand I use the most! 

Design:
  /5
Natural looking brown lenses. A lighter brown version of the chocolate coloured version.

Enlargement:
   /5
The enlargement effect is quite nice, a very good size for lenses


I hope you found this review useful!

    This was the main pair of lenses I  have worn in the past couple of months. I worn them for the majority of my 2 week holiday in Japan. They are very comfortable and doesn't dry up even after  I have worn them for a whole day. I have also worn them to a smoky club in Japan with no problem!


    Design:

    These lenses look very very natural! I especially like what they look like in natural lighting. You can't go wrong with natural lenses, they look nice with natural make up and at the same time they look great with heavy make up too!
