Fiama Di Willis's Brand Ambassador Deepika Padukone's Makeup Tips

Thanks to ITC Fiama Di Willis, I recently had the opportunity to meet Deepika and interact with her in a blogger's meet they had organised.

I, of course, was armed with a list of makeup related queries. Deepika has really pretty, large brown eyes and really nice hair as well. 

Favourite lipstick:
Deepika's favourite lipstick is red, if she had it her way, she would wear it all the time. Next to red, she likes corals. But with smoky eyes she has to wear natural / nude lips instead to avoid it looking OTT.

Skin routine: 
She believes hydration is the most important thing for healthy skin, whether that is hydrating from inside or outside.

Preparation for Cocktail: 
She just soaked up as much sun as possible for that gorgeous tanned skin

First experience with Makeup & Makeup Idol: 
Her mom. She told us about the time she would sneak into kit while her mom was out. Her mom was very elegant & a trend setter, back then she would get her sisters to send her blue kohl & mascara. Deepika always wondered why she didn't wear black like others (I suspect Deepika's mom has brown eyes - blue mascara & liner looks really pretty on brown eyes) and only when did she start wearing makeup did she realize how ahead of her time her mom was.

Favorite Look in a Movie: 
Both Cocktail & Om Shanti Om. Though she said she realizes that she cannot repeat either looks for the danger of being labelled monotonous, plus it needs to match the character she is playing. Her MUA on Cocktail was Anil Chinnappa.

Essential Makeup Item: 
Mascara. She is never without it as it opens up the eyes and makes her look awake.

Beauty Food: 
She said that she doesn't eat anything specially just for her skin or hair. She just believes in a balanced diet.

Favorite product from the Fiama Di Willis Line: 
The peach & avocado shower gel bar.

I did really like her hair & makeup a lot in Cocktail, and Deepika looks just as lovely in real as she does on the big screen.

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…
