Lady Gaga's Makeup in Judas Video

I wrote this post a month ago & then forgot :P.. It's a little late, but I hope you'll still find this interesting!

I love Lady Gaga & her music. Is she a lil kooky at times (meat dress, hello!), yes. But I still love her fashion & makeup choices because she takes such risks.

These days I'm loving her new video - Judas & also her eye makeup in the video. The inspiration for it seems to be the mythical Egyptian Eye of Horus symbol. She has two distinct looks in the video. The concept is same: Lots of black gel liner paired with matt dark berry lips.

The simpler, toned down look. Check out her eyebrow ends. 
One of the looks is the more toned down(?) one with regular kitten flick with gel liner & matt red lips. The most interesting thing here is her eyebrow - it is two-forked at the end using gel liner. Her nails are alternating plain dark blackish burgundy & red nails & gold chains linking them - they look wicked!! Me loves. The color is very similar to MAC Dark Diversion gel liner. I would love to get such nail art done, though that probably means I would be doing little else coz I imagine those tiny chains might break.

Her color blocked nails

Check out those feathery eyebrows
The other look is the more Eye of Horus styled eyes, the brows too get a major makeover. There is strong top line, followed by brush flicks through it to give it a feathery appearance. I have a feeling this was done using some very clumpy mascara & some gel liner. And there is a golden mole on her right cheek, reminds me of Rekha.

The nails are trending on color blocking- they are now red & green alternating, nails heavily embellished with stones. The motifs used look very Indian to me, I feel one could easily find such stuff in those lace & sequins stores.

Until recently my concept of brow makeup extended to filling in gaps. Trust Gaga to change it all.
I want that crown! :)

She also wears lovely head accessories in the video - from regular black & white bandana to a elaborate crown made of golden chains, which I adored. (I love hair accessories, I have lots of them & wear them at every given opportunity)

You can watch her video here.

I love Lady Gaga, I love her songs, & I love how she is constantly trying to innovate & twist around fashion rules. She's a true innovator.

What do you guys think? What did you like about her look in the video?

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…
