Tag: 12 Beauty Questions

Mehak from Peaches & Blush Blog tagged me on this. She is another blush addict and has a very fun blog. Do take time out to read it.

1. Whats your favourite makeup look?

Deep brown eyeliner with a pink lip gloss. I sometimes skip blush as my skin tends to look a little pink on its own.

2. Do you have a beauty vice?

Too many products. I just have too many makeup products, and yeh dil maange even more. That would be my vice.

3. What part of your body do you love?

My Hands, I guess, because I love beautifying them with nail paints & different wrist jewellery

4. Who is your beauty icon?

Kate Winslet for looking so fresh in her makeup, as well as Katrina Kaif. They both have great make up artists, who I am itching to get a makeover from :-P

5. What beauty product makes you feel instantly good?

Surprising I can't think of any. I would have to music here, because I am a bigger music addict than makeup. Listening to a peppy number instantly perks my mood.

6. How do you look after your skin?

I have simplified my routine a lot in the last few months. Now I just wash my face in the morning & use a light moisturizer. In the evening I cleanse to remove makeup, wash my face and again just moisturize. Once in a month I do a face pack (plain yogurt) at home.

7. What is your signature scent?

Weekend by Burberry & Tahitian Vanilla by Victoria's Secret

8. What is your hair care secret?

I don't have a secret. My hair has a secret. It is as if the hairs on my head have a life of their own, behaving perfectly sensibly all day, then waiting till I drop off to sleep and starting to run and jump about childishly, saying, 'Now what shall we do?' (I am wondering if anyone will be able to guess what book this quote is from, it is one of my all time favorite reads)

So every morning I wake with a head of hair that looks more like a lion's mane. If you have any secrets on how to tame such hair, please share.

9. How do you pamper yourself?

By shopping for myself :-P

10. What is your beauty pet peeve?

When women use white talcum powder as foundation for the face, or when women get stuck in makeup rut for years and use the same lipstick / liner for like years on end.

11. What would your desert island must haves be?

A laptop with data card, plug point and a credit card. I would then go shopping online and get a motor boat to get back. And also a Mojito to chill with while the boat arrives.
12. Finally, do you have a beauty philosophy?

Hmmm... Every woman is beautiful in her own way, beauty inside reflects on the outside and finally, have fun with makeup, if you go wrong you can always wipe it off and begin again.

I tag everyone to do this tag :-)

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…
