Make up & Zodiac Signs - Taurus

Moving on to the second sign in the Zodiac - Taurus in my series inspired by Priyanka Chopra in "What's your Rashee"


Just as a pointer I would like to add that other than your Sun-Sign, you must also read the description for your Ascendent. As the Ascendent rules your personality, it may also play a role in the make-up & colors that you choose. 








Taurus is ruled by the planet - Venus, so beauty forms a very important part of their lives. They like spectacular and expensive things. Luxury and wealth play a very important role for them, and they will buy less but buy only the best clothes & cosmetics.


Hair is also a big obsession for them and they will constantly make sure that it is well styled & in place.  


Taurus women are very fond of big neck jewelery & try to look sexy yet innocent at the same time. So they actually end up looking like nymphs (in a good alluring kind of way)


Taurus does not like looking vulgar and avoids bright colors. They try to look natural. Smoky eyeshadows of gray, pink, white, beige, silvery shades are best for them. They will also enjoy experimenting with earthy - jewel shades such as emerald green, turquoise, amethyst purple and topaz as not only do these look opulant but they are also earthy solid colors. (Lakme has nice products in these shades). For lip colors they tend to stick to nude and brown shades.



Taurus can also try the color Green as either nail paint or eye-liner/shadow


This color rejuvenates their spirit. It resonates with stability and healing and gives you balance of strength and substance. Wearing it helps heal the body and attract wealth and prosperity.


UPDATE 12th Oct 09:
Even though the symbol of Taurus is the very male bull, this Fixed Earth Sign is all about potent femininity, the kind of natural, earthy beauty that changes lives and moves mountains. Now that's better than thinking of yourself as a slow, stubborn old bull, right? Taurus women radiate a simple but powerful beauty; it's this subtlety that is a Taurus woman's greatest charm.


You probably own very few cosmetic products, but what you do own is the very best (for you, at least), and you stick with a tried-and-true -- if it ain't broke, don't fix it, they say. While you appreciate a brand name, what you're really looking for is quality, and though you prefer simplicity to showiness, you know how to highlight your best features and downplay your less-than-perfections.


Taurus, with your steady gaze and flawless complexion, should grow out your natural curls rather than force them straight, or keep your nails trimmed short if you just know long and sexy won't work for you. You adore the small, sensual pleasures of beauty -- sensual fabrics, natural, revitalizing skin creams and perfume with a woodsy, balsamic scent.


You prefer your hair flowing naturally over your shoulder or a loose tendril falling across your forehead. It's through these tiny but generous gestures of understated femininity that you as a Taurus assert your beauty.


If you are Taurus woman reading this, do share with other readers what is your style like? Does it match the description above?

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 …

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…

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…
