Yellow Eyeliner Anyone?

Image Source
I read this really interesting post on the latest makeup trends of 2011. It seems makeup this year is going to get really bright! I like, I like..

For starters yellow/orange eyeliners seem to be the latest trend, as are fuchsia lips. I personally think yellow eyeliners aren't really new to a lot of us Indian who use a lot of gold in our traditional eye makeup in any case. So what we use is a metallic version of yellow - but yellow nonetheless.

Orange eyeliners I have seen in the past in Lokhandwala stores, they are said to look awesome against blue eye, but I can totally see brown eyed girls carrying it off with equal panache, perhaps a touch of bronze to it will make it more wearable for us Indians.

But I'm loving this new bright trend a lot. Seems like it is time to get Revlon Colorburst in Fuchsia :)

What do you think?

To read the post I am refering to go here


  1. revlon colorburst is fuchsia is a MUST HAVE shade tanveer! go grab it now! it will look stunning on you too.
    we indians do use a lot of bronze and gold, don't we. these shades really compliment out skintone a lot. i don't think i'll ever wear stark, crayon-like yellow/orange liners, but i do like the metallic versions. never say never!

  2. Oh nice! I might get to use my Nyx yellow eyeliner that came free with my haul :P


  3. Nice post Tanveer! I was at the store today and was almost about to buy Revlon Colorburst in 'Fuchsia' but on second thoughts did not. Now I'm wishing I had!


  4. I dont know if i would wear orange/ yellow but the fuschia one sounds very interesting tanveer !. Btw, love yr comment moderation policy !

  5. Ooh, interesting stuff for the eyes..wonder if yellow or orange tones would suit someone like me with wheatish skintone... I have a pallet from Coastal Scents which has these 2 colours but I'm clueless as to how to use them:( Checking out the link now!

  6. yellow liner!!! i can see tht in editorials but not on the streets... but then again, if we can wear gold, why not yellow?

  7. I have a jewel copper from lakme and it just looks neon orange on my eyes. although I wouldnt mind wearing orange because I noticed it looks quite nice neon orange is something OTT for me. :)

  8. Wow, good to know about this info. I always wanted to wear orange as my makeup. Now I have a reason to try it. :D

  9. Would like to try this-- but will I get weird looks from people?! :-P

  10. I finally got the gold liner I was looking for :) and seems got it at the right time :D

  11. i am all for colorful liners :) will try yellow its not too hard isnt it ?? :)

  12. the eyeliner concept looks good.but i dont think i can carry off yellow

  13. i am not quite confident about myself with yellow and orange, sigh :(

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…
