How to wear Fuchsia Lips

Image Source
They are definitely this spring’s hottest trends – everyone is sporting fuchsia lips or at wants to. While they aren’t as tricky as red lips to carry off – the bright pink does present an issue by themselves, as it is a strong lip statement.
Wear fuchsia lips with
1.      Black, white, cream (ivory), dark navy blue clothes.
2.      Simple black, dark blue or brown eyeliner. I tend to not use any eyeshadows when doing a fuchsia lip. Just mascara & thin eyeliner on upper lash line.
3.      Let your skin be matt – I tend to avoid shimmery highlighters with such a bright lip.
4.      If it feels too bright & scary – layer clear gloss on top to tone it down.  If the lipstick is too cool toned, try topping it with a gloss that has some gold shimmer.
5.      During the day you can pair this with a summery outfit (white kurta or a summery dress) & during the night pair it with a black outfit (sari, kurta or top)
6.      A lip liner - Dark shades generally need a lip liner to make them appear structured, use a lip brush as well.
7.      Use a neutral blush. I tend to skip blush entirely – but if you need to – use a very neutral one. No shimmer.
8.      Make sure your accessories (earring, pendants) are not too big to distract attention.
Avoid fuchsia lips with
1.      Heavy eyemakeup or heavy blush.
2.      Clothes that are in shades of pink (too much going on), bright orange, bright green, purple… Basically don’t pair it with clothes that are very bright themselves or outfits that have more than 2 colors going on.
3.      Colored eyeliners like purple & all.
4.      Chunky jewellery around the face area.
Some brands to try
·         Revlon Colorburst Fuchsia (the best IMO – a warm fuchsia that goes well with Indian skintones)
·         MAC Gulabo (Limited Edition) or Girl about town
·         Bourjois Sweet Kiss in Fuchsia Class
·         Maybelline Colorsensational - Fuchsia Fever
·         L’Oreal Color Riche  -  Intense Fuchsia
·         Colorbar Matt Velvet lipstick in Smokey Rose
·         MUFE #203 lipstick
·         NYX lipstick in chole

Reetha, Amla & Shikakai Home Made Shampoo - Weekend Experiment

Good Morning Lovelies, I hope your weekend was fun. Mines was, well, ho-hum, but anyways, we are not talking about that here (let’s save that cribbing for twitter).
I have been suffering from quite a bit of hair fall since some time. I have tried changing products to using intensive conditioning and the works. It stops the hair fall for while, but then it rears its ugly head again.
So on lark, & for lack of better things to do, my best friend & I decided to make some Reetha – Amla – Shikakai shampoo at home. This century old ayurvedic herbal concoction is reputed to not only strengthen hair, but also darken it and stop hair fall.
I got the 3 biggies from a local kirana store. All 3 are priced at 15 Rs for 100gms.

How to: Soak 5 pieces of Shikakai, 4 balls of Reetha  (Soapnut) & handful of Amla (Indian Gooseberry)  in about 500 ml of water overnight. In the morning, heat the mixture on gas till it just starts to boil. Let it cool, when lukewarm mash all the amla, reetha and…

Skin Care Myth: Sunscreen will stop you from Tanning

Image via Wikipedia I know I did a recent article on skin care myths (read it here), but I don't know how I forgot to mention this particular myth. In any case I think this warranted a post on its own.

Myth: If I use a suncreen regularly and religiously, I will not tan. 

Fact: This is a very simplistic statement. But before I bust this myth, kindly bear through a science lecture. This is to bring all readers of all backgrounds on the same knowledge level.

Lets define sunscreen (from Wikipedia):Sunscreen (also commonly known as sunblock or sun cream) is a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects "some" of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin exposed to sunlight and thus helps protect against sunburn. Sunscreen helps protect only against direct DNA damage as it cannot dissipate UV as harmless heat.

The SPF of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen — the higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen …

I made "Washed Ghee" at home and it turned out great!

Yesterday I posted about the importance of fat in our diet. While doing research for the same I came across the recipe for "Washed Ghee" or Shata Dhaut Ghrita (100 times washed ghee).

After I read about this miracle at home cream, it was inevitable that I would try to create this cream myself. All I needed apparently was some cow ghee & water.

So I made it last evening. And here is how it went.

For those readers who haven't read the earlier post: Hundred times washed ghee is prepared from organic cow milk ghee by washing it in purified water, repeatedly, 100 times in a copper vessel, using a specific prescribed method while chanting some mantras

This procedure transforms the ghee into a soft, cooling, nourishing, silky unguent that is used as a traditional moisturizer and anti wrinkle skin cream. It produces radiant and glowing skin, especially for people with easily inflamed skin. It can be used as a daily face and body moisturizer or for facial massage. Apply it for…
