Foundation, Concealor & Highlighters

Bumika wanted to know
hey which concealer,foundation,compact n highlighter do use ? daily wear n party wear?

During the day
I use only Ponds Tinted Moisturiser. This is my daily wear. I don't use concealor on a daily basis, as honestly I don't have the time in the morning and I don't think I need it too. If I am really tired or have dull skin due to lack of sleep or just overworked,  then I mix a drop of Revlon Skinlights Illuminating Lotion in Pink Light with Ponds TM and apply it.

For party/night time
I am currently using Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation. My experince with this foundation has been quite nice, it gives medium coverage and looks very natural. It has some pink undertones in addition to yellow, so it doesn't wash my face out completely. But this is best applied with a foundation brush, and spend some time buffing it. I have noticed that blending with fingers is not very good, and it tends to look cakey that way. The only other con with this line is that they have a very limited color selection. I wear 53 - beige in this, and that I think is the darkest color in this line.

For concealor I am using Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealor and I am very very pleased with this. Even more than I am with the foundation. It is very creamy, easy to spread and gives very, very good coverage, that looks very natural.

Highlighter: I use Revlon Skinlights Illuminating Lotion in Pink Light as Illuminator.

What foundation, concealor, highlighter are you using at this moment?


  1. I don't use any concealer but my friend use Avon concealer and she is satisfied with it's result.I have bought Chambor stick foundation for special occasion and I'm very happy with it.I don't use any highlighter...should i use high lighter Tanveer?

  2. @Rakhshanda: Only if you want to create a look that makes the skin appear glowy or dewy.. Highlighters are totally optional. I like them because I love the dewy look for my face, but if you like your face to appear matt, then it is best to skip it.

  3. @Rakhshanda: Honestly it seems to me frm yr pics that you have gr8 skin with a natural glow to it. I think you don't need a illuminator.

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…
