ATB Beauty Notes: Sonakshi Sinha shares her tips

I read this on the Vogue website. A few beauty notes from Ms. Sinha :)

Diva tip
False eyelashes. You feel instantly glamorous.

Skin rituals
I remove all my make-up and moisturise before sleeping at night. I use a Nivea moisturiser and Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleanser, and I drink lots of water.

Hair ritual
I go for an occasional olive oil or coconut oil head massage, which is really good for blood circulation. I also enjoy L'Oréal hair spa treatments.

Day and night 
I try to keep my look very natural in the day—no foundation, just coral blush and transparent mascara at the most. And for the night I prefer a heavier eye; I’m a complete kohl and eyeliner person. I hate lip gloss, and will occasionally go for a red mouth. Lately, I’ve been fascinated by coral and orange shades.

Vanity bag essentials
Inglot Coral Blush, Inglot Coral Lipstick – 401, M.A.C transparent mascara, Chanel Matt Lumière no. 50, MaXfactor waterproof mascara, Revlon kohl pencil.

Home recipes
Occasional multani mitti packs. I regularly use fresh aloe vera on my skin. Any bruises, blemishes instantly disappear with aloe vera, it’s the best thing for the skin.

I was quite surprised to read her list, drugstore brands like Nivea & Revlon to Chanel, and I also liked her honesty. She has really shared what she uses with shade numbers, unlike some actresses who give general gyaan. She's grounded & open. I like :-)


  1. I think she is beautiful and now she seems so much more down to earth :). But that L'oreal hair spa thing made my hair fall out, never gonna try that again!

  2. I like too! :) really such accurate info everything she shared! Kareena Kapoor wont say which MAC lipstick she uses!:P

  3. Oooh....i want to check out this nglot 401 coral lipstick NOW !

  4. I'm really impressed! Firstly she actually uses products that so many people can afford. And secondly, like Ik said, she has no qualms mentioning exactly what she uses. I love that! There are way too many actresses who keep everything a secret.

  5. she uses revlon...a welcome change from lacome,chael,YSL and EL....:)

  6. Hi Tanveer, please check my blog tomorrow as I have nominated your blog for a sunshine award :)


  7. I'll try out just fresh aloe vera from her tip..I have aloe plant on the kitchen window grille but thinkin of slicing & scooping out the icky goo inside puts me off! >:P But I'll try, have heard alot about its curative props :-S

  8. even Dia Mirza has shared all the tips with shade numbers and all in Vogue

  9. I like the fact that she shared the details of the shade no.s etc. Like everyone else, I'm curious to check out the Inglot 401 lippie too.

  10. i do see her with her coral lips most of the time.:P

  11. absolutely love Sonakshi's pretty eyes & her grounded approach to life.She has a degree in fashion & had worked as an intern with designers in Lakme fashion week before so I feel she might have better understanding of what makeup her MUA actually uses on her...but quite a refreshing change to see a Bollywood celeb using drugstore brands & being candid enough to admit it..

  12. Ik- sorry if I sound catty but you can hardly blame Bebo,the poor girl would probably not know her M.A.C. from Big Mac.. after all she sports sony vaios as a clutch.. (sorry I just couldn't resist it, my heartfelt apologies to any Bebo lovers out there)

  13. She seems like such a natural girl next door. Her choices are a mix of cheap and high end. Also, Tanveer, I have a request. Can you please remove my blog from your blog list because it is not updating the posts. And if you want, you can add it again :P Also please unfollow my blog and follow (if you still want to :P I request this to everyone. A lot of people are not getting updates since I made the change from blogger to wp.

  14. wow... not many actressses would do this... kudos to this one...

  15. This is awesome Tanz :D i soooo love her coral lips and now its time to find the color in inglot ... :D :D

  16. Her interview is so down to earth, every girl can easily relate to her :)
    liked the article .. :*

  17. she sounds a normal person wit no airs:) and so sweet of her to share her shades :D nt many do tat na :|

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…
