Fall Beauty Trends 2010

Instyle Magazine compiled makeup trends that celebrities have been sporting across red carpets for Fall 2010, here are some that caught my eye:

Green Eye Shadow

Green Eyeshadow on the Red Carpet

There's something about green shadow that makes eyes really golden.

Green can be a neutral eye shadow, but it's important to be very measured when you use it. Keep the shade below the crease of the lid to avoid looking overdone, and reach for a brown liner for definition. A smudge under the bottom lashline can also have subtle impact.

Berry Lip Stain
Tailor your application method to your skintone. Pale complexions look best with a sheer wash of color; darker complexions can handle a thicker, more opaque finish. Personally I love berry colors & I tend to sport them year round. So this is more like a personal style & I am liking that this is in trend!

Cool Pink Blush
keep the color focused on the true apples of the cheeks, which helps the look pop. I think I saw Ash sport a look like this in Robot in that funny Kilimanjaro song

Be sure the rest of your skin is clear and free of imperfections, which will help the blush stand out.

Heavy Black Eyeliner
This look is about giving your eyeliner a sultry, lived-in feel.

A  coating of liner along the inner rim of your bottom lash—also called the waterline—is the quickest way to amp up the drama. Put it on the waterlines, blink, blend the liner and start again. Building this imperfect, smudgy line is incredibly sexy.

This is another trend that I am quite liking, although back then I didn't even have the wildest idea that this is in trend. I have been sporting this ever since I began using Maybelline Unstoppable liner in Deep Brown & now with Lakme Black Satin Kajal.

Mixed Metal Eyes
"Layered silver, gold and bronze on the eyes is like wearing jewelry on the face. Keep the rest of the faces neutral—and opt for white dresses—to really work the look.

Too much mascara can interfere with these sweet, sparkly shades. Use brown mascara to keep it light.

Shiny Red Lipstick
Red lipstick is a classic look that never gets old. The shine keeps the shade fresh and gives the illusion of plumpness.

A full mouth of shiny red lipstick can look a little clownish. Avoid that effect by using a creamy matte formula and dabbing the center of your bottom lip with a clear gloss.

Of all these I like the Berry Lips, Heavy Black Liner & Mixed Metal Eyes trend the best.

Which of these trends will you be sporting?

  1. I hv to tell this to you...recently when I had gone to a mall..there was a counter by chambor where they were doing free makeovers and me and my friend decided to get it done...I was wearng a bright leaf green tshirt that day and the person doing makeup picked up green colors for my eyes and my first reaction was have u gone mad!!!! but thn I just went ahead w it and got green eyeshadows put...he did a nice job and I got soo many compliments that day!!! kinda loving green eyeshadows since thn :)

    Other than this...loved the pink blush and metal eyes

  2. Hey great post Tanveer!!! I love using green shadow...It looks good with my brown eyes.

  3. I so love green , heavy eyeliners and red...u made me smile Tanz:)

  4. nice 1...i jus love heavy black wakes up d eyes instantly...

  5. @HD: I know what you mean.. A few months ago I met this MUA, and I was talking to him and I told him, you know I just cannot use black liners and I can’t even use anything on my waterline or lower lash line – it just looks crazy.. He got up, & got a black liner and this deep grey metal eyeshadow & despite my look of horror did my eye makeup with only these 2. And Boy, oh Boy! My eyes have never looked better in makeup my entire life.. To say that I was shocked is an understatement.. I realized that day that almost all of us can carry all colors – the trick lies in the technique & how it is applied. I learnt a bit from him that day & since then I have overcome my phobia of dark liner on lower lash line..

    I personally am a lil petrified of green eyeshadows, but after hearing your experience I think I’ll give it another shot..

  6. @Rakshanda: Really! You like green, you must share some tips with us on the best way to carry it off :)

    @Anks: You too must share green eyeshadow look with us – another smokey FOTD??? & I know how well you rock red lipstick, you just look super hot! I am happy I made you smile Anks :)..

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…
