Make up & Zodiac Signs - Gemini

Make - Up for Gemini:

As a Gemini, you may get that tired, old split-personality tag -- but you're not internally conflicted, Gemini, you're just restless and very often brilliant!

This Mutable Air Sign, blessed with all the wit and charm you could need to make it through life on guile alone, does not much interest itself with the day-to-day trappings of a beauty routine. You've got more important things on your mind -- be it world peace, spiritual fulfillment or planning the perfect vacation for your family,  so it is always very difficult for them to make a choice when buying cosmetics.

It's your stimulating mind, your expressive hands and that ever-talkative mouth of yours that garner all of the affectionate attention -- people can't help but look at your lovely hands as you gesticulate and make yet another insightful comment.

Even though you may chew your nails down to the quick in one of your frequent fits of nervous energy, you keep any flaws hidden well with vibrant nail colors and frequent manicures. If they're not watching your hands, others will unfailingly be watching your mouth for the next witticism -- any lip color had better have staying power for the likes of you!

But it's what goes on in your turbo-powered brain that wins the most admiration; calm that mind down with a lavender-tinged perfume and make-up in shades of pinks and light blues. You gravitate to the new and the progressive, and you're not afraid of color. Your beauty comes from your animated intellect, your zest for interaction and your flexible attitude. By not taking yourself too seriously, you allow others to see the real you -- not a cosmetic façade.

Amongst warm shades they prefer green.

Gemini, strangely enough, do not like bright cosmetics, but wear a lot of bright clothes. They also prefer matte textured make-up.

Best color: Yellow
Energizing and stimulating, this is a color filled with radiance and light. It has the ability to lift your spirits. Wearing it increases your memory and communication skills. 

Wear it as a light golden yellow high-lighter on the brow bone or as nail paint.


  1. hey this is mostly true for me (Gemini)
    I find it really difficult to make a choice when buying cosmetics :)
    N yeah i don't get trapped by beauty routines either, although it might seem like that to so many pple.

  2. @ CZ: Glad to know it resonated with you!! :D

  3. Hey Tanveer ... Being a gemini i can very well relate myself to this article... I dont believe in impulsive shopping and buy each cosmetic after researching abt it fully :)

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…
