A Nerd’s guide to Make up

Hello readers! Those of you who read my blog and those who know me would be astonished on reading the title of this post. “Aishwarya? Giving tips on make up? Good joke!”


But, no I’m not joking. I’m not a pro or anything at this, (considering that I have only just started doing make up), but, as they say, only a lazy person can tell you the easiest way to do anything. The first time I wanted to try all this, I went to the Departmental store and bought some BB creams (which do not have shades – okay, one shouldn’t be so lazy….). The result was, well, I ended up looking like a ghost (It is called “white cast”, which I learnt later). And then, some experiments later, I finally ended up with a good foundation (I just had to go to a beauty store and ask them for my shade – well that wasn’t tough!). When I finally tried it on, I actually loved how I looked.


Okay, let me clear this out – I am not a hypocrite. In my posts, I keep saying that girls should be independent and not let anyone’s standards define them. But, if  you like some thing, and it is not wrong, then you should definitely do it. And that is what I am doing. I don’t put on make up to impress anyone, or to “fit into” the society, but because I LIKE IT.


So, stay tuned for easy make up ideas from the laziest nerd around!


FOTD : July 15, 2017 – Coriander flower

Flower of the day

This was inconspicuously hiding beneath the coriander leaves my father brought home yesterday!

DP photo challenge – Collage

My “natural” collage!

What can be a better house arrangement than a bunch of succulents and spider plants put together? These are my pretty plants which don’t just exhale oxygen but also exude beauty around them!

Ronovan’s Haiku challenge – Colour and Warmth

I have played with the prompts a little bit this time 😉 !


Grey tracksuit, jogger shoes

“He must think i’m tomboy” she thought

“Hot, my type” he thought

Daily prompt : imaginary

The night traveller


An imaginary glimpse, I thought,

but it wasn’t, I was sure,

I did see him, move stealthily so,

With a guarded gait,

But the sight was so ephemeral,

I shouldn’t have ignored it,

Why did I keep the window open?

I mustn’t have, 

One mustn’t trust the night winds,

And its obscure shadows,

It brings some visitors, unwanted though,

Note to self : never repeat this blunder,

A look into the kitchen and I knew,

That sly idiot had left some traces,

White drops of his ecstasy were left on the slab,

The stray kitty had arrived again,

And stolen all my milk!

Ten thousand I saw at a glance

I was amazed at the sight of these whopping numbers of yellow wood sorrels and I kind of got an insight as to what Wordsworth ji would have experienced when he wrote those words!
