Make Up - How to be Guy-Hot & Girl-Hot

The previous post has shown us scientifically that make-up does attract other people. It has also proven that eye-make has the most profound attraction effect on men, followed by foundation (clear, bright skin) while lipstick had little to no effect. 

So now that we know what attracts whom, here is a quick how to up your look a few nervy notches when you’re out with gal pals or add the right sultry effects for a sensuous night with your guy.

1. Lips: 

Guy hot!
Matte lipcolours that blend in—pinky beiges, nudes, light pinks
Try: Nivea Lip Balms for that light tint of color

Girl hot!
Glossy lipcolours that stand out— think bright red, purples, dark browns, corals.

We girls think of fun lipstick colours like shoes: we get tired of wearing the same basics shades all the time. Let's face it, I have a ton of lipsticks and am sure most of you too do . On the other hand, A guy takes one look at bold shades/gloss/shimmer/sparkles and thinks, ‘Is that going to kiss off on me?’ That’s why he’s not into wild colours or anything with a slick finish. 

So buy a soft pink lip stain/tint shade you can layer on more or less of, depending on your plans. One coat will bump up your natural lipcolour (sexy for him); try two or three coats for a darker stain, and top with gloss for a girl's night out!

Good options include tints by Jordana juicy lip tints, The Body Shop cheek & lip stain & Bourjois Hi-Tech Lip tint 

2. Eye lashes

Girl hot!
Dramatic false lashes

Guy hot!
Long lashes that seem totally natural (Try Maybelline Define A Lash for this look)

Anthropologistssay that men don’t like anything that looks fake. It’s distracting, and they want to see the real you (However I am not sure about this as this does not explain why men are attracted to women with fake implants that are very obvious "read: Pamela Anderson"). 
Women, on the other hand, enjoy fringe for the attention. It’s something we do as a peacocking move that makes us stand out in a crowd. 

3. Eye lids

Guy hot!
Smoky eyes

Girl hot!
Electric eyes (Think colored eyeliner)

Your eyes communicate a lot about you. The smoky look—dark liner plus shadow smudged in—makes your eyes seem bigger, which men find sexy. Experimenting with playful shades, like teal or purple, has an energising impact on your mood, which is great when you’re out with friends. For an awesome smoky eye, do black liner topped with charcoal gray to define your shape. When using bright liner, let it stand out on its own by pairing it with a simple beige shadow. 

4. Nails

Guy hot!
Bright toes

Girl hot!
Bright hands

A blingy nailpaint immediately draws attention to your feet. Men tend to view feet as very sensual and private, so it’s sexy to catch a glimpse of your toes decked up in eyecatching paints. Hands are more visible. We look down at them all day, so the pop of colour on the feet is wild and unexpected.

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…
