How to wear Yellow Eyeliner

Colored Eyeliners are the latest range this summer & I expect the trend to continue till the end of the rainy season. What better way to celebrate spring & then light up gloomy rainy days than a flash of bright eyeliner

But wearing colored eyeliners is not always easy, they are difficult to pair & match with lip & blush colors. Also not all of us want to ground these all the time. (P.S. Grounding a colorful eyeliner is the technique of applying a thin line of black liquid liner near the upper lashes to make the lashes seem thicker & provide a break buffer between the colored eyeliner & the dark lashes)

I am a big fan of colored eyeliners. I generally don't like black liners / kajals as they don't look good on me. Over the years I have understood a little bit about pairing colored liners. I thought I would do a series of these posts for those of you who love colored eyeliners as much as me.

P.S: Please note that these are just my suggestions & are meant to serve as a guide. Please feel free to experiment and add your ways of wearing these liners in the comment section. 

You could paint a thick, yellow line along the top lashes, slightly thickening it in the center (like a banana) or else trace the upper lashes, starting the color right at the pupil, take it all the way to the end, and repeat the same on the bottom.

You can even ground this liner with a dark navy blue liquid liner applied just close to the upper lashes. Finish the look with a light touch of coral pink lip gloss & blush (if needed). Skip mascara. 

I haven’t yet found a eyeliner that is pure yellow without any gold tinge to it. I guess this is where yellow eyeshadow & Inglot duraline come in handy.

  2. am a little scared to try this :P

  3. Its such a fun trend..i can imagine katey perry rocking a little safe with liners though!

  4. yellow eyeliner sounds real tempting but too scared to wear it in public :) I have heard so many great things about inglot duraline. have to check it out

  5. I'm so scared of overdoing eyeliners that I even hesitate to do anything other than a super-thin line of the regular black liquid one! This definitely looks interesting though... btw, what about the Lakme eye liner colours this season like the light green? I liked that one. (Also a pink)

  6. ya, its fun for summers..but one needs some guts :)

  7. That's a really fierce look, I'm not sure I would be able to pull of bright yellow, but perhaps it's to do with your mindset- strong and confident!
    Great post, its a trend I haven't seen before, but is refreshingly new!

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…
