Make-up Trend: Yellow Eye Shadow
2008-04-18 15:46:00
Bright primary colors are so in for clothes right now, but you should diffuse them for your makeup. Pastel yellow is too full force, distracting and unflattering.One word: Cream. Straight yellow powder can look chalky, so look for a cream shadow you can easily spread and control.Rec: M.A.C Paint Pot in Cash Flow, layered with M.A.C Eye Shadow in Chrome Yellow

Make-up Trend: Budge-proof, Slip-proof Under Eye Concealer
2008-04-16 13:21:00
Not all concealers were created equal. Facial skin requires a dry, stay-put formula, but the creepy skin under our eyes needs a little extra hydration along with the right mix of pigments to counteract purplish, green under eye bags. Not to mention masking hefty bags.Brighteners mask under eye puffiness, while creamy yellowish pigments hide deep circles. Benefit Erase Paste wraps these helpers into one potion. Tap the product into the inner corners and below your lower lashes with your ringer finger, and watch your fatigued bags vanish before you can blink an eye.Rec: Benefit Cosmetics Erase Paste

Make-up Trend: Stay-Put Red Lipstick
2008-04-15 07:00:00
We've all been there: toilet paper on our favorite stilettos, spinach in our teeth, zipper open on our jeans. But lipstick on the teeth doesn't need to be added to this list. Swipe on your favorite red and flash that smile all day long!Help your favorite red stay in place all day and night by pressing an oil-absorbing face powder sheet against lips. Then use a second sheet to set the part of your lips that's closest to your teeth by slipping it slightly in the mouth and pressing down. That way you cover all angles.Rec: Nars Perfecting Powder Sheets

2008-04-14 16:27:00
"Naturally, there's an adorable, charming princess and a fierce, energetic tigress hidden inside every Bengali girl!" says make-up guru Cory Walia. Cory talks animatedly about the Bengali beauties he enjoys working on that include: Kajol, Rani Mukherjee, Bipasha Basu, Sushmita Sen, and Konkona Sen Sharma. "Their creamy skin, thick, dark hair, almond eyes weave magic around you," he says.Kajol Her looks: Her sensitive eyes and broad smile are the best parts of her face. Her eyes light up her face and make it look beautiful, whether she wears make-up or not. Her prominent nose and high cheek-bones need some special attention. Her skin is dusky, but clear. Clear skin is always easy to work with.Make-up mantra: Less is more for Kajol. Light, matte shades and neutral looks suits her dusky skin.Tips: If you have dusky skin, make sure you always use a foundation in the same shade as your skin tone, don't go light. Lip colors in earthy tones look better. Use sparkly or light eye liners ca...

Make-up Trend: Blue Eye Shadow
2008-04-14 15:40:00
Contrary to popular myth, there actually IS a blue eye shadow for everyone. If you have fair skin or light eyes, choose a powder blue or aqua. For deeper skin tones and eye colors like Sameera Reddy, opt for a sheer indigo or royal blue.Unless you test a shadow in a store, it's hard to gauge the degree of pigmentation in a formula. If yours reads too deep on your lids, remove it and apply off-white powder shadow first.Rec: M.A.C Eye Shadow in Flashtrack

Amrita Arora's Beauty Breakdown by Subhash Vagal
2008-04-12 19:17:00
A Sparkly GazeIf you recall, a few days ago I blogged about Kareena loving her silver liner. Here's Amrita's version, give your eyes a silver lining with a little shimmer. There are two ways to achieve this look. You could line your eyes with a silver pencil (Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Gunmetal), just draw a line all the way around and lightly smudge with a smudge brush. Or, cover your lids with a nude eyeshadow (M.A.C Eye Shadow in All That Glitters), and then lightly dust your lower lid with some shimmer powder (M.A.C Iridescent Loose Powder in Silver Dusk). "You could just let the shimmer fall on your cheeks for a wispy, dreamy look, " says Vagal (the make-up artist). Add some false eyelashes (M.A.C Lash in 21), and apply two coats of mascara (M.A.C Plush Lash Mascara) to make your eyes stand out. To make sure you don't draw away attention from your eyes, opt for a sheer or nude lipstick (M.A.C Slimshine Lipstick in Ultra-Elegant).A Radiant VisageNothing screams s...

Boho ChicTo create a boho chic look, line the eyes softly and use lots of mascara. Moisten lips with lip balm and then fill them in soft pink.Girly and FunMatte the skin, leaving highlights on the cheekbone. Use a light neutral eye shadow with a frosty finish, add a thin line of eyeliner on the top lid only. Enhance the eyes with mascara.

Use a soft peach blush to warm up the skin.Femme FataleUse a bronzing powder and a rich apricot blush for that sun kissed look. On the eyes, use ametallic bronzey color and kohl and a highly reflective frost/glitter pigment. Fake single lashes open the eye further. Remember to keep a minute of drying time between the two applications. Use a bronze metallic lip color. Use a lip liner for dark colors to first draw t he lip line and then fill in.

As the mercury rises, our skin requires a bronzey summer update. And to complement a sun-kissed complexion, it's also time to swap lip glosses. Choose a tube with golden shimmery flecks instead of silver-based shine.To get a high-shine pucker like Katrina Kaif, apply a coat of shiny nude gloss over your regular formula.Rec: M.A.C Lustreglass in Instant Gold

Pratima Skincare & Spa
2008-04-09 13:18:00
Paging through the latest issue of Instyle, I found an advertisement of an Ayurvedic Skincare line called Pratima. This Ayurvedic line was founded by Dr. Raichur. This led me to google her line. This is what I came up with, Dr. Raichur is a chemist, botanist, doctor, Ayurvedic Physician, and a best-selling author. But, what's her biggest accomplishment? She pioneered the modern field of Ayurvedic health and beauty care. Within her research and studies she developed her one-hundred percent ayurvedic, herbal skincare line.SkincareSoothing Lotion, Vata Body-Balancing Oil, Neem Rose Face Sunscreen SPF 30This skincare line boasts of: cleansers, essential skin oils, moisturizers, facial masks and eye treatments. Added to the list she also developed a body care line which has products like cleansers, body oils, and bath oils/salts. But, by far the best part of her line are her treatment products targeted specifically for people with the following problems: acne, aging, cellulite/stretch m...

Make-up Trend: Shiny Cheeks
2008-04-07 14:56:00
Don't white teeth go a long way towards a million-dollar-smile? So why not shine the cheeks and get a smile worth a billion bucks? A truly genuine smile involves not just your mouth, but also your eyes and cheeks. And Ranbir Kapoor's sister Riddhima Kapoor captures that concept beautifully.To get the just-right gleam when you smile, swirl a slight dusting of pale pink shimmery blush on the peak of the apples of your cheeks. To find that spot, smile big and find the quarter-size area that protrudes the most.Rec: NARS Blush in Deep Throat

Bridal Make-up Looks
2008-04-04 15:13:00
This post is for all brides to be especially Stars N Rockets! I hope I have given you a wide range of looks for you to experiment with. Au naturelThe natural look is being opted for by a lot of brides these days, where minimal is the key. “Use fresh flowers and natural elements in the hair, along with natural tones for blushing pink cheeks and lips. The colors for this trend would be pink, peach, lemon, light orange/apricot, and caramel,” advises ace make-up artist Clint Fernandes. Consult with your make up artist before deciding on a color palette though – it all depends on your complexion, after all!Retro power!“Vintage style is still big, be it the ‘60s or the ‘20s look. Hints of retro eyeliner, or lips and hair used as single elements in a style, look great. Adding modern elegance with a vintage feel,” enlightens Clint. This could include anything from the curling liner look to an elaborate up-do. You could also ask your make-up artist to use kohl and give you smol...

Smooth skin? Check. Minimized pores? Check. Even tone? Check. Even perfectly clean, unblemished skin can use a pick-me-up. To get a seemingly airbrushed complexion like Diya Mirza's, all you need is a tinted moisturizer and luminizing lotion. The rest of the features can be simple, allowing your youthful face to do all the talking.Squirt a dime-sized drop of tinted moisturizer on a cosmetic wedge, followed by a pea-size drop of iridescent white liquid (don't use anything with shimmer, or you'll look sweaty, instead of dewy). Dab over your forehead, cheeks, nose and chin. Spread around face and swipe under your eyes to even out discoloration and texture.Rec: M.A.C Strobe Liquid

Holiday Make-up Trend: Flushed Cheeks
2007-12-05 00:14:00
It's not windburn from cold weather, but Bipasha does have a wonderful glow. To get the look, use a light-reflecting foundation (Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation), peachy-pink blush (M.A.C Powder Blush in Buff) on the apples of the cheeks, and a light dust of bronzer (Cargo The Big Bronzer) on top of that. This radiant look is wonderful to wear with a red party dress. Her makeup compliments her outfit and accessories rather than upstaging them.
