Yami Gautam in Vicky Donor

Tell me you have seen this movie! You have, right?

Did I hear you say No?? Well, then go right away. This is one of those really good movies you shouldn't miss!

But this movie in no way is path - breaking for the way Yami Gautam does her make-up or dresses. Yes, she looks good & has good screen presence. But her makeup & clothes are very normal, very everyday. Maybe they meant it to be like that, she had to come across like a normal, girl-next-door who works at a bank. It flatters her, but it didn't make me whoop in joy - OMG! look at her lipstick!

And that is why I decided to do this breakdown. Because some of us may want to look like normal girls-next door sometimes.

1. First up is the base. Create a good canvas. But there is no contouring in this look.

2. Next up for eyeshadow, use a a pale peach pink just all over the lid. Use a light matt brown just in the crease to give it a bit of defination.

3. Define the brows really well, fill in the gaps with brown eyeshadow.

4. Next grab a black kohl, something like Lakme Asolute Kohl liner and line your eyes with a thickish line on top & lower lash line. Also apply on the waterline and smudge it a bit to create evenness & close the gaps. Apply mascara.

5. Use a peach - pink blush like Bourjois Lilas D'or in #33 on the apples of the cheek

6. For the lips, if it is daytime use a peach/pink brown lipstick like Lakme Peach Carnation or else for night time a pale beige gloss.

That's all there is to her look in the movie.

Have you seen the movie? Liked her look?

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…
