Mother’s Day Photo Shoot at CTC Mall

Maa!

I call her Maa! Matay! Mommy! but actually, she is a superwoman! She is the one who surrendered her own desires to raise us better than she had been! She definitely deserves an extra love and attention and of course loads of gifts! 🙂 🙂 Haina? 

In honor of Mother’s Day, CTC mall plaza organized a Mother’s Day shoot, yes a Mother-Daughter photo shoot! Wow! Isn’t that exciting? They had arranged a makeup artist to make our day even more special moreover we were free to pick any outfit and accessories for the shoot. The whole concept was absolutely irresistible so I decided to give it a go. For me, it was a great way to thank the special lady in my life with an amazing shoot exclusively to make her more special for the special day.

As we were free to pick any outfit of our choice for the shoot thus we got a chance to discover their huge collection. Trust me, we were simply fascinated with their unbelievable collection !! CTC Mall is not only a mall but also a hub for all sorts of ethnics. Huge varieties, absolutely unique designs range for all kinds of budget. The bridal collection is just breathtaking! From pre-wedding outfits to Heavy Bridal Suits, bridal Saree, bridal Lehnga, gowns, suit sets and from wedding accessories such as clutches to footwears, the store has endless variety. What I liked the most about their display arrangement is that none of the outfits are folded but placed on hangers.

I must say, CTC Mall is one of the best places for shopping under one roof for all your bridal needs, especially for bridal lehenga! If you haven’t been to CTC Mall, Moti Nagar yet, then you must check out their collection at least once before heading anywhere else!

Since CTC Mall is a bridal lehenga destination, I decided to pick a bridal lehenga. I picked a beautiful lehenga in maroon color. All the lehengas were effortlessly displayed on the hangers thus I could easily pick them up in terms of colors, prints, and designs and see for myself which one would work best for me. Believe me, I took just 2 minutes to choose my favorite lehenga for the shoot!

I also got my matching jewelry easily from their jewelry collection. Likewise, Maa also picked her favorite outfit but took some time to select one, as she didn’t want to go for a gaudy one.

5 Skin Care Habits You Should Follow Before You Turn 30

Hey, lovelies!

The skin is youthful and soft and plumb till the age of 30. Many of us, who are blessed genetically, do not even have to fight the usual problems of skin such as blemishes, acne or premature ageing. Maybe that is the reason why most women believe their skin doesn’t need much of a skincare till they are 30 years old. However, the fact that your skin is healthy till 30 makes it even more important to maintain it well and keep it strengthened for a future phase. It is the best time to take all the measures to preserve its youthfulness. Note down these habits now.

1. Regular Exercise

Woman exercise.jpg

Your body, just like your skin, remains fit, resistant and youthful on its own till 30. So it is good to make a habit of exercising regularly when it is time. Exercise cleanses your skin and inner organs by wreathing out the dirt inside. That is the reason why you get that glow on your skin when you are exercising regularly. It is as important as your skincare routine

2. How much water do you drink in a day?

Drink water.png

This is the most popular, yet the most ignored way of keeping your skin youthful. Trust me, water can do wonders to your skin. So make sure you keep your skin hydrated by drinking at least 5 liters of water during a day. To improve the ability to drink higher amounts of water than you are drinking now, avoid drinking caffeine and colas.

3. Are you avoiding fats?

eat fats.jpg

Not following a proper diet plan and binging on junk food will damage your skin for sure. But for a healthy looking skin, just having a diet that is both nutritious and full of fiber, such as a lot of fruits and veggies, is not enough. The intake of fats is also very important. A lot of young men and women commit this blunder of avoiding fats to look good. They must, on the contrary ensure a daily dose of seeds, nuts, and healthy oils, which make skin radiant and youthful.

4. How’s your skincare routine?

skincare routine

It is important to develop a good skincare routine habit so long as your skin is healthy. Do cleansing, toning and moisturizing at least twice a day. It is basic knowledge not to sleep with makeup on. Carefully remove every trace of makeup while are you preparing to go to bed as it plays a key role keeping up the glow on your skin.

5. Selection of skincare products

Remember to look for skincare products with antioxidants. Your facial oils and serums must have ingredients that contain vitamins A, C, E, as these protect your skin against air pollutants. Similarly, products with plant-based oils help restoring skin from sun damage. These ingredients also work against premature ageing by strengthening a dehydrated skin, preventing fine lines and wrinkles.

With all the above tips, be religious about applying your sunscreen, no matter what. The sun’s UV rays damage the skin, causing cancer and ageing. So there is no alternative to wearing sunscreen. If you follow these simple steps, you can keep up the youthfulness of your skin for many years to come.

Sunscreen is Important

So, Give the break to the things you have been doing till now and adapt these wonderful habits to stay young and beautiful!!!

Makeup Revolution Vivid Shimmer Brick Radiant Review And Swatches

Hey, Everyone! 🙂

I love highlighters! The highlighter is a product that can completely transform your look. Not only it gives you amazing glowing look but it also helps you look younger and fresher! I had been planning to buy universally loved Bobby Brown’s shimmer bricks but those are very expensive hence never got my hands on them. But, as soon as I saw Makeup Revolution Vivid Shimmer Brick Radiant on Nykaa, I was like damn! These two look absolutely similar!! I could not resist myself to buy this product. So, let’s get into the review, super fast .. . . 🙂 ❤

Product Details:

Combining the warmth from a bronzer with highlighters to give gorgeous definition to all skin tones. Either use each shade from the shimmer brick on its own, or swirl your brush round to pick up all the colours.

My Experience Makeup Revolution Vivid Shimmer Brick Radiant:

Packaging:

The Makeup Revolution Vivid Shimmer Brick Radiant comes in a black colored square plastic pan with a transparent lid, which allows you to see the product really well. Trust me the highlighters look divine in the palette! There are 5 beautiful shimmery highlighter strips inside. There is a brand logo on the transparent lid in Gold color. The packaging is simple, yet beautiful! The palette is quite compact and sturdy yet the product inside might break if not handled carefully. I accidently dropped it once and the darkest shade cracked a little bit inside however the container/plastic pan was still intact. Nevertheless, the container closes tightly which makes it travel-friendly. Moreover, it’s a small and light weighted palette so it’s easy to simply toss it in your bag or in your makeup pouch.

Brick 1 is a soft yellow gold– this is a pale yellow gold color which is the best shade for highlighting.

Brick 2 is a soft rose gold color with a peach-pink undertone, another great shade for highlighting.

Brick 3 is a shimmery copper brown which is a great option as a bronzer for a sun-kissed look.

Brick 4 is pale pink with peach undertone or can say it has a nude undertone which gives a healthy glow to your skin.

Brick 5 is a deep copper brown, which is similar to the middle one but this one deeper, darker brown. Since this shade a darker thus this will work as a great bronze blush for me in the summer. Such a pretty and perfect shade for a sun-kissed look.

So, let’s get onto the swatches!

These swatches are from lightest to darkest

Skin and Hair Care for Holi

 Happy Holi Everyone!

The festival we all have all been waiting for is just around the corner “HOLI“!! 

 hjappy-holi-images

HOLI is a festival of Colors & Love! People spend the day smearing colored powder and throwing colored water at each other. You just can’t avoid such beautiful colors, parties, and fun! Can you?, Everyone loves watching those colorful happy faces but the end of the day, we are left with dirty nails, messed up skin, rough hair and many breakouts! Isn’t it? But don’t worry! Below are some useful tips for before and after Holi that will help you protect your hair and skin from the colors.

Read on to know more:

SKIN CARE

holi haircare

SKIN CARE TIPS – BEFORE HOLI

  • Say No to any kind of beauty treatment such as facial, bleaching, waxing before Holi because these procedures leave the skin pores open which is absolutely harmful to your skin. Why? During Holi, all the colors can easily seep into your pores.
  • It is always advisable to play Holi with natural/ herbal or homemade colors like you can make a yellow color by mixing Turmeric powder and corn flour. Else buy colors from good brands with all natural ingredients.
  • The strong chemicals in the colors leave your skin dry, so a thick application of moisturizer on your skin (entire body) is very important before you leave to play Holi. Pamper your skin with loads of moisturizer (Coconut based moisturizers are excellent for your skin) or coconut. This will help you in protecting from the immediate effect of harmful chemicals of colors. Also, this will help in removing color from your skin more easily. You can use a thick layer of petroleum jelly as well.
  • Make sure you wear something that covers your body as much as possible so that there will be less of skin exposed. So, less area to remove color from!!
  • Trim your hands and feet nails properly and paint them with any dark nail polish. Don’t forget to put petroleum jelly around the cuticles. Remove nail polish once you are home. This will not let any color residue on your nails.
  • And last but not the least, do not forget to apply sunscreen lotion before you step out to play Holi. Also, take care of your Lips by applying plenty of lip balm (preferably the one contains SPF) before joining the play of colors.

SKIN CARE TIPS – AFTER HOLI

  • Firstly, take a quick bath so that the colors come off from your skin easily. Do not take a bath in hot water, as this will make your skin drier. Bath in lukewarm water is recommended. After a bath, make sure to apply plenty of moisturizer to prevent the skin from dryness.
  • Do not panic, if some colors do not come out. The color will fade away with each wash.
  • Wash your face with face wash to wash off the colors from your face and then apply some Aloe Vera gel on your face, which will relax your skin from any harsh effects of chemicals in the color.
  • Never rub your face vigorously with soap, as it will make your skin absolutely dry. Instead, use a cleansing milk or mild face wash to remove the color from your face.
  • You can rub some coconut or olive oil on your skin to get rid of dry colors. For wet colors, you can rub lemon slices over your skin. Whatever method you use, make sure to apply plenty of moisturizer after wash to prevent your skin from any kind of irritation or dryness.

HAIR CARE

holiskin care

HAIR CARE TIPS – BEFORE HOLI

  • Make sure you tie up your hair while playing Holi as open hair tends to tangle and damage your hair even more. Holi means more fun!! Don’t go for any boring hairstyles rather make some stylish hairstyle like side braid, high bun.
  • You can also wear any cap or turban to protect your hair from direct contact of colors.
  • To protect your hair from the chemicals of colors and harsh water, massage your hair with loads of coconut oil before you play Holi. The coconut oil acts as a barrier and prevents colors from coming in direct contact with your hair & its roots. That means less hair damages.
  • Don’t wear contact lenses rather wear Specs. You can also use goggles to protect your eyes.

HAIR CARE TIPS – AFTER HOLI

  • Firstly, wash your hair with plain tepid water so that most of the color comes off. You can shampoo your hair with mild shampoo afterward. Don’t worry, if you still see color in your scalp. Do not wash your hair again and again as it will make your hair drier. The color will fade day by day.
  • If your hair becomes dry, apply plenty of Coconut oil and leave it like that for overnight. Wash your hair next morning with a mild shampoo. The coconut oil is very light that a single wash with shampoo will remove all the colors from your hair. You may also condition your hair after shampoo.

There is a sponge applicator attached to the cap. The length of the applicator stick is so perfect for a better grip. The wand is bit small but picks enough product for a perfect application without wasting a drop of it. It defines your lips effortlessly even on the corners of your lips. As suggested earlier, always line your lips first and then apply your liquid lipstick to avoid accidental clown mouth.

Texture & Pigmentation:

img_4963

SUGAR COSMETICS SMUDGE ME NOT IN WINE AND SHINE LIQUID LIPSTICK – REVIEW AND SWATCHES

SUGAR Cosmetics Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick – 08 Wine and Shine has a medium and smooth texture, which glides on effortlessly without any tugging, It dries down approx. in 1 to 2 minutes into a BEAUTIFUL super matte lipstick. It doesn’t smudge or transfer. Once it dries it doesn’t budge for anything like literally “ANYTHING”. Do not forget to prep your lips before applying any matte lipstick. Since the formula of this lipstick is a little drying, so make sure to apply a good lip balm before applying it. This lipstick is extremely pigmented. As it goes opaque in just one go thus do not layer it up much else it may lead to patchiness. As mentioned above use a lip liner to define your lips first then apply lipstick for perfection.

Staying Power:

SUGAR COSMETICS SMUDGE ME NOT IN WINE AND SHINE LIQUID LIPSTICK – REVIEW AND SWATCHES

Once it’s set, It doesn’t budge at all. It stays put on me approx 9 to 10+ hours! It stays on my lips through eating (light oily food) and drinking, Yes it survives incredibly well. The lipstick doesn’t smudge, transfer or fade at all!!!!!. It doesn’t budge until you eat something oily then it starts to wear off slightly in the center of the lips. Nevertheless, the pigmentation was superb after such long hours! The best part is that it does not flake or crumble. It fades off evenly leaving behind a lovely pink-purple tint. Since it has a stubborn tint thus removing it is a bit difficult, however, you can easily remove with oil-based cleanser or Johnson & Johnson baby oil/coconut oil.

Once it dries down, it’s pretty much resistant to any smudging and it doesn’t cause any irritation to my eyes.

Staying power:

This gel pencil has amazing staying power! I have watery eyes but it stays on and doesn’t run. It stays put on my eyes for minimum 6 hours in my waterline and more than 10 hours on my lash line easily but doesn’t stay for 16 hours as per the description. It stays on and on even with sweating, it doesn’t run. I wore it during my gym time once where it smudged a bit but nothing too noticeable. It stays intact yet comes off easily with my makeup remover or baby oil.

P.S- When you do strong colors like this on the eye, be sure the rest of your makeup (i.e. cheeks and lips) is soft and natural.

  • Easily available.
  • Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
  • Water-proof and Smudge-resistant.
  • Dermatologist tested.
  • Allergy tested thus doesn’t irritate your eyes.

Cons of Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil in Lustrous Sapphire:

  • Expensive

  • Doesn’t stand on its 16-hour claim.

MAB RECOMMENDATION:

Overall, Great pigmentation, very creamy texture, Maybelline Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil in “Lustrous Sapphire” really makes your eyes pop with instant rich and bold color just in a single stroke. Moreover, this stunning Sapphire shade would flatter all skin tones.I have dark brown eyes and it was looking so gorgeous on me. I am really glad I purchased this Gel Pencil. Finally, my search for the perfect blue eye pencil is over. If you are blue eye pencil lover like me, then this MUST be in your vanity. I am even planning to buy more shades from this range as this range has amazing colors!!!! ❤ ❤

SUGAR COSMETICS SMUDGE ME NOT TANGERINE QUEEN 06-REVIEW AND SWATCHES

Hola Everyone!

🙂 🙂

I am a pretty big fan of Sugar Cosmetics! It is one of the brands that have “happily surprised” me always! Earlier, I have reviewed MATTE AS HELL CRAYON LIPSTICK – 01 Scarlett O’Hara, MATTE AS HELL CRAYON LIPSTICK – 03 Poison Ivy and SUGAR IT’S A- POUT TIME! VIVID LIPSTICK – CORALINE IN THE CITY. I’ve been blown away by the quality of their products so far. I was almost jumping with joy as soon as I came to know that Sugar Cosmetics launched their 10 irresistible liquid lipsticks. All the shades are so tempting that it was so difficult to pick one. Anyhow (Dil pe patthar rakh ke) 😉 I chose a vibrant orange-coral shade, that’s 06 Tangerine Queen from this range. Now, Let’s get into the review:

SUGAR COSMETICS SMUDGE ME NOT TANGERINE QUEEN 06-REVIEW AND SWATCHES

What does company claim:

If you’ve ever lusted for a “one-coat wonder” product for your lips, your search ends here. Get a full-blooded burst of pigment with just a single swipe of the SUGAR Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick that will stay the day and right up till the night! Wine, coffee & date-proof – this is a matte lipstick that is guaranteed to last longer that your longest day. Available in 10 stunning shades that will make it difficult to choose – the question is, are you ready to commit to a lipstick that is built to last?

How to Apply:

For precise application, apply it to your bottom lip first and then tend to your upper lip. Since the formula is very pigmented, we suggest applying the colour to the bottom lip first, pressing your lips together and then filling in your Cupid’s bow.

SUGAR Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipsticks are available in the following 10 stunning shades:

My Experience with SUGAR Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick – 06 Tangerine Queen:

Packaging:

IMG_3523.PNG

SUGAR COSMETICS SMUDGE ME NOT TANGERINE QUEEN 06-REVIEW AND SWATCHES

The Lipstick comes is a beautiful matte finished outer carton. All the vital details are mentioned on it. Coming to the lipstick tube, it comes in a rectangular and absolutely transparent tube with a matte black cap. The black cap has the “Sugar” logo on it and the shade name, the number are also mentioned at the bottom of the tube. It’s quite sturdy which makes it quite travel-friendly. When you see the tube, you will notice a shape of a lipstick bullet at the end of the transparent tube which is quite impressive!. I soo loved the packaging! Simple yet elegant!

THE APPLICATOR:

There is a sponge applicator attached to the cap. The length of the applicator stick is so impeccable for a better grip. It works pretty well to apply the product to the lips, especially on the corners of your lips. The wand is bit small but gives you more control and perfect application. As per my experience, you may have to slope at least thrice to cover the entire lips. To avoid accidental clown mouth, do not forget to line your lips first and then apply the lipstick.

Shade, Formula, and Pigmentation

SUGAR Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick – 06 Tangerine Queen is a very beautiful, vibrant orange shade. Surely, this is a super fun summer color, and perfect for an evening party or a bold look. I think the shade is flattering on all Indian skin tones. It is such a vibrant lip color that may get you endless compliments…TRUST ME!

Coming to the formula, it is a watery formula with amazing intense pigmentation that glides on smoothly. It has no taste but yes has a subtle vanilla scent. It dries down to an ultra-matte, so if your favorites are creamy matte or satin finish lipsticks then you may find it super drying. The formula takes no long (Approx 1 to 2 minutes) to dry so you have less time to work with the color and shape your lips. Hence, you have to work little fast because once it dries, it doesn’t budge at all, thus try to get an even application in one go, rather than trying to layer it up else it may lead to some patchiness. It feels drying on the lips initially but then it disappears after a few minutes and feels weightless too. With a product like this, good lip prep is always essential.

Make sure your lips are exfoliated; smooth and moisturized properly else it may accentuate the flakiness and dryness even more. You may apply a thick layer of your favorite lip balm before you start your makeup and remove it once you are ready then apply your lipstick.

It wears about 8 – 10 hours on me, and last reallyyyyyy well through eating and drinking. The lipstick doesn’t transfer whatsoever. It doesn’t budge too until you eat something oily and after that, it starts to wear off in the center of the lips like other matte lipsticks that you can definitely retouch. Besides that, no feathering, fading or smudging at all!!!  That means you need an oil-based cleanser to take them off. Currently, I am using Maybelline Clean Express Total Clean Eye & Lip Makeup Remover, you may even use coconut oil or any baby oil to remove it.

Overall, SUGAR Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick – 06 Tangerine Queen is the shade that gives an absolutely rich and intense color payoff while providing full coverage. The quality of the product is super amazing and the wear time is absolutely fantastic (up to 10 hours) especially compared to high-end liquid lipsticks available in the market.
