All About Blush

Hey friendzzzzzzzzz
When I first started doing makeup or getting into cosmetics, I just had no one to guide me.I was so confused. I used to sit for hours and surf the net to know what product to use or in short "All abouts" of various products.
I really don’t want any beginner to face any problem like I did, So I have decided to write blogs specially for each product like foundation, eyeshadow, lipcolor, n todays topic is BLUSH.
Blush gives depth and contour to your cheeks and accentuates your inner glow. Blush is one of those beauty products that is often misused. It can immediately make you look brighter and revitalized if you know which type to use and which color works for you. To achieve the perfect blush look, you have to know certain basic about blush.

First lets have a look at the TYPE OF BLUSH :

  • POWDER BLUSH :Powder blush,  is generally the safest option for those not used to wearing color on their cheeks as it can be easy to achieve the perfect tone. It is applied with a blush brush.It works especially well for people with oily skin.

  • CREAM BLUSH :For those of you with dry skin, Cream blushes are best.It is best applied with your fingers and work very well to achieve a flushed, dewy look on your face; accordingly, they don’t work well for women with already oily skin.

  • LIQUID HIGHLIGHTERS :Beware of shimmery colors and stick to matte colors, at least for day, as glitter can accentuate any flaws. Opt for blending a liquid highlighter into your skin for that added lift without the obvious shimmer.Apply with fingers to get the perfect glow.

Beyond picking a type of blush that works for you, the color is of the utmost importance. Choosing a blush color is not the time to follow trends. The hottest colors may look great at the beauty counter but most probably won’t work for everyone. 

So now lets have a look at the what color blush suits your skin tone....

  • Fair Skin: For women with very fair skin light corals, peachy-pinks or a warm toned rose tint works the best.
  •  Medium Skin: For medium toned women, choose an earthy pink or warm rosy-coral shade  to bring out the natural warm tones in your face. Women with yellow undertones should opt for coral or copper shades as they can enhance the yellow tones rather than work against them.
  • Olive Skin: Olive skin tones work best with saturated, warm pink and apricot colors as they give a subtle flush without making it look like you’re wearing too much makeup.
  • Dark Skin: Women with dark skin can get away with using a lot of color on their cheeks as long as they blend.Rust, plum, bronze, and burnt orange colors work very well on darker tones as they brighten your complexion but still appear natural.
Now the last and most important thing to keep in mind while applying a blush is BLEND it well....The more you blend the more glow you get...

So friends thats all for today...and thats all about BLUSH...hope my tips help you all....
Take care
n Blush with a Flush :)

Stylish accessories are staple part of woman's wardrobe as they can really flatter even the simplest outfit. Woman of every size can accentuate her look by accessorizing it with trendy accessories.
Plus size women often feel that they don’t need accessories as it will highlight their weak points and would lead to a drab look, but it’s a wrong notion. Accessories can actually brighten up the look and make it stylish. Correctly chosen accessory can make one appear slimmer and sexier.

So Lets have a look at must have accessories for Plus Size Women:
  • JEWELRY :Plus size women should go for chunky, larger, bold piece of jewelry as it will make a huge difference to their look. Long necklace, huge pendant, chunky earrings, thick bracelets, etc.. are their forte.

  • Trendy ELASTIC BELT :Belts are one of the best accessories as they add a touch of style to whole look. But regular belt would be little tight for plus size women. So, choosing a trendy elastic belt is best option as it is fashionable as well as functional.

  • LEGGINGS : a chic pair of dark leggings along with long tunics, mini dresses, long sweaters or tees. Besides adding softness and style to your look they are extremely comfy as well as versatile wardrobe pieces.

  • SUNGLASSES :A well-chosen pair of sunglasses will flatter your face shape to give you a classy look, and make you look sexy as well as super-stylish.

  • Perfectly sized HANDBAGS :shop for a handbag that will be in proportion to your figure. Stay away from any kind of small totes or tiny bags as will optically make you seem larger.
While shopping, Be sure whatever you choose to use as an accessory is not tiny, as it will instantly add pounds to your visual appearance.

So hope my tips helped you in accessorising your look.
C u guys later.
Keep it stylish

hey frenz....

SMILE is the best accessory we can flaunt :)
But can you imaging flaunting yellow dirty smelly teeth :( scaryyyyy isn't it

Our teeth are one of our biggest asset so we should preserve it.Dentists say that the most important part of tooth care happens at home.

So lets have a look at few things we can do to get that sparkly smile :)

  • BRUSHING teeth TWICE a day keeps Plagues away: Plagues are the transparent layer of bacteria that coats the teeth. The best way to do this is by brushing your teeth twice a day.
  • Brush your gums and roof of mouth as well.
  • Take your time and brush properly covering every corner of mouth.
  • The next step after brushing is RINSE your mouth with water.This will help getting rid of the debris.
  • The next step after rinsing is to FLOSS out the remaining plague and food particles from places where toothbrush cannot reach.
  • Now Rinse with water again followed by any mouthwash for that refreshing breathe.
  • Apart from these tips its very important to be careful and take caution while eating sweets or any sticky stuffs like choco or jelly, etc..
  • Have a regular visit to a dentist.
Hope my tips helped you people get a fresh and healthy SMILE :D

the word itself brings a :( onto our faces. Its common for people of any skin type but mainly for people having an oily skin.We often think that these are the dirt but no, blackheads are caused by excess oils that have accumulated in the oil secreting glands's path due to the clogging of pores caused by dead skin cells.These oils and dead skin cells mix together to form the dreadful blackheads.

I have a combination skin and so I tend to get blackhead around my nostrils which are really irritating and a big turn off.But I have got this amazing product which not only clears the black heads but also polishes my skin.

As soon as you use it, you will feel the difference.It just drags away those blackheads and clears the skin.You just need to take the product and apply it to cleansed skin and massage it.It has got millions of tiny granules which just scrubs away the dirt, dead skins n blackhead leaving your skin clear and soft.

Its suitable for all skin types and really work wonders.I have become a fan of it.....
Hope you guys use it and love it :)

Dont' squeeze it rather eliminate it ;)
Take care :)

Fashion Tips for CURVY WOMEN !!!

Well they say I am fat but I say I am blessed :)
Women with curves are blessed, that's what I think and many people say - so girls if you have the curves, love them, its the most desirable shape on the planet.
According to a research done by BBC, curvy women are more intelligent, brighter and attractive than skinny women.So girls who are killing themselves with crash diet and over exercise to get that size zero just relax.You are the most preferred ones these days.
Each one of us should embrace ourselves and rather than trying hard to change the way we look should try to flaunt ourselves :)
So here I am today with  dressing tips for women with curves :)

  • Wear well-fitted clothes - a dress that is too big will only make you look bigger and clothes that are too tight will also make you look larger.So opt for the right fitting dresses
  • Darker Bottom and Lighter top - Wear a darker bottom and lighter coloured top to emphasize your waistline and to minimize your curves
  • Say No to HIPSTERS
  • Wear skirts that end just at your knee cap.That will make your legs look longer
  • Avoid high necks and keep your neckline open.
  • Boot cut jeans are for you
  • Accessories your outfit with a flattering neck piece or ear rings to divert the focus from your heavy bottom
Curvy figure is considered by most to be the ideal female form. So most importantly, be confident about your body. Dressing smartly will help you show-off your assets while hiding your problem areas. 

So, ladies flaunt your style coz you totally worth it :)

Shopping Mantra for Married Couples :)

SHOPPING is something we women enjoy and men are scared of :P
Well for a couple, shopping or such outings are always fun.Time spent together is always what they look for.
But some people say life change after marriage.A couple is so much caught up with responsibility that they forget to enjoy such moments of togetherness.
But for My Hubby n Me life did change after marriage but in a better way.While an unmarried couple without any financial burden enjoys shopping endlessly, a responsible married couple with a target to save too enjoys but in their own way.

So lets have a look how to transform a boring grocery shopping to a kind of A DATE :)

  • Firstly never leave house with a fight or an argument.Cos this will spoil the entire mood of enjoying.Try to leave house together with smiles.
  • If you going to meet your spouse at a common place, greet him/ her with a small hug.That will wipe out all tiredness.
  • Try to change the mode of transport.Get out of the car and try walking down together or taking a bus.
  • When you reach the mall dont just hurry.Be slow and enjoy the whole process of shopping.
  • Never shop alone when with your spouse.Involve him/her.
  • Try finding humor.Laugh talk and shop..
  • Apart from the household items from your list try to buy something special together like in our case plants, decorative items and new foood items :)
  • After shopping, If possible eat something together.Let it be a meal or any snack.
After such an amazing day trust me you guys will never get bored thinking about a grocery shopping.
Trust me after this day, you will rather call it a DATE :)

Have fun and remember marriage isn't the end of life but its a beginning of a new life, a much better life.Life is full of so many such moments to enjoy just try to figure it out together.

Hope you enjoyed my post :)
Until my next post
n ya Have a happy Shopping :)

Its Time for SHOPPING !!!

hey buddies,

We all love shopping.Or can I say we all have to do shopping.Be it for fun or necessity shopping is something we cant just avoid.
In today's world when prices are rising like anything its very important for us to learn the smart way to shop.
So here are a few of my tips for SMART SHOPPING....

  • Plan your shopping. Before going just make a list of things you need and the spenditure you are going to do.
  • Don't shop when you're hungry. If your stomach is grumbling when you enter the store, you'll be a goner when you see all those tasty treats. 
  • Shop during off-peak times.To avoid crowds, do not shop after work, on paydays, or just before holidays.
  • Buy items before you run out of them. Buy at clearance, or sale price,
    instead of regular price
    when you must have the item. 
  • If you won't use it, don't buy it. 
  • Due to volume discounts, larger stores are generally cheaper than smaller ones.
  • Shop alone. Other individuals will only help fill your shopping cart.
  • Compare, Compare, Compare the Prices.
  • Last but not the least Check your receipt or bill.
By following these tips and with your presence of mind and smartness you will have a great shopping and saving as well.

See you guys in my next post....Till then.....
Enjoy Shopping :D

Live your Dreams !!!

A wedding day is a dream day....
A girl drenched in the sheen of beauty, dressed in gorgeous wedding attires wait for her man to come and take her to a world where all her dreams come true.With hopes in her heart and tears in her eyes a girl leaves her parent's home.She walks into a new world and embrace the new life.She molds herself to adjust into the new family.She adopts their culture, their tradition.She gives love and care to all and try her best to keep everyone happy.
BUT does she get this in return????
They say people are changing.Indian society has changed.But is it true???Are all brides getting what they deserve???
There are still many girls who are dying each day, each moment. They are killed.Their dreams hopes everything is brutally trashed by none other than their own people.The in laws who bring her to their house treat her like servant.The husband who has taken marriage vows to keep her safe turns to be a monster.Is it fair?Does a girl ever deserve this?Does any of us deserve this?No....
Its high time now that we all start respecting ourselves.Its time we all don't take ourselves for granted.We aren't so weak so fragile.Lets be strong enough and never let anyone hurt us in anyway.
Love all but Love yourself first
Respect all but Respect yourself first
Let other Live but learn to Live first....

Always be happy...Live you dreams....Coz you totally worth it :)

Well friends...I am back to my blog after a long hiatus and nothing more special to start on than my first wedding anniversary.
Yah...its been 1year that we are married but it seems like yesterday we tied knots :)
Its still so fresh and so full with love and happiness....

I wish everyone is blessed with a husband like my darling 
With his love I feel strong,
With his love I can face each day with courage,
With his love I am never alone,
With his love I see the beauty in life,
With his love I feel complete and whole,
With his love I know there is nothing else I need in life

I love him alot and cant do anything to thank him for all the happiness he has filled in my life....
Well this poem is a small token of love from a wife to her loving husband :)

Our wedding anniversary brings to mind
The happiness and joy you’ve brought to me,
Sweet memories--the laughter and the tears,
Devoted love you give abundantly.

The place I want to be is close to you;
There’s ecstasy and peace in your embrace.
I know that I can cope with what life brings,
As long as I wake up to see your face.

You’re all I ever wanted, and much more.
I look at you and I still get a thrill.
Our marriage is the best thing in my life;
I love you deeply, madly, and I always will.
