    Indian Bridal Makeup Tips & Advice

    Even though Indian wedding makeup is usually very simple and neutral, it’s one of the hardest makeup looks to create, since it has to be PERFECT. After all, it is your big day!

    Use a professional makeup artist if possible. Have a pre-wedding consultation so your makeup artist already knows what you want.

    Working With The Indian Bridal Makeup Artist (Hopefully Khush ;)


    • Collect pictures from magazines to show the makeup artist so he or she can get an idea of the look you're going for. Keep in mind that your wedding is not the time to start experimenting -- stick to an enhanced version of your everyday self.
    • Schedule trial runs before your prewedding parties or other special events (friends' weddings, class reunions, etc.). Some makeup artists do charge you for these practice sessions -- so find a crowd to wow!
    • Take a close look at yourself a few hours after a trial makeover to check how the makeup wears on your skin. Does it la [...]

    Indian Bridal Makeup  & Photography Tips

    To understand why makeup requires different skills, it is important to consider how lasting images are created on different media. The image, seen by the naked eye, impacts on the retina and is transmitted to the brain. To develop a photograph, the image is transferred to film where it is created chemically, whereas videos record images electronically on magnetic tape. The trained makeup artist understands these differences and uses the tools of their trade accordingly to compensate for these differences.

    The Camera's Distortions because the camera only records a two-dimensional, flat image whereas the naked eye sees a three-dimensional image, it exaggerates facial flaws: a wide, full face appears wider, close-set or deep-set eyes photograph closer-set or deeper-set, and sometimes these types of eyes can photograph very small when a person smiles.
    The Solution Very few people, except professional models, are blessed with bo [...]

    How French women lie more than Americans about their beauty routines


    We all tell little white lies every now and then.

    From lying about your age to a sudden bronze (fake) tan, the world of beauty is a particular minefield when it comes to fibbing.

    But,
    as much as we are all inclined to the odd reworking of the truth, a new
    survey shows that American ladies are far more honest than their French
    counterparts when it comes to beauty, sex and age.


    Je ne sais quoi: The French aren't honest about how much they spend on beauty - nor are they truthful about their sexual pasts

    survey, comparing French and American women's lying habits.


    There are similarities: Both nationalities lie as much as each other with 60 per cent of us lying at least once a week.


    Younger women lie even more, with 70 per cent of women between the ages of 18 and 24 lying once a week.

  • Top 10 Skin Myths Debunked

    July 13, 2011

    Are you approaching your regimen all wrong? Dermatologists expose common blunders that could be sabotaging your complexion.
    MYTH 1: A complete skincare routine must have three steps.
    TRUTH:Cleanse, tone, then moisturize has been drilled into our heads, but feel free to skip the second step, says Cambridge, Massachusetts, dermatologist Dr. Ranella Hirsch: "People think that toning an oily complexion will make it better, but oil is protective and the body produces it in response to injury. When you strip your skin, it reacts by making a ton of grease."
    MYTH 2: You need to cleanse your face at least twice a day.
    TRUTH: Using a face wash in the morning is just an excuse to go through more product, according to Hirsch, who advises avoiding antibacterial soaps at all costs because they're too harsh for your face. "In the morning, the best thing is water and your fingers, not a cleanser," she says.
    MYTH 3: Scrubs make skin glow.
    TRUTH: Overexfoliating leads to extra oil production, [...]

  • 'I'm not in the ads because I'm vain': Tom Ford strikes a pose with Lara Stone as he launches full make-up range

    June 15, 2011

    His collection of high-pigment lipsticks proved a huge commercial success. Now Tom Ford has announced that he is to expand his beauty offering to include a full range of cosmetics and skincare.

    The line, which will hit stores in September, takes its inspiration from the Seventies, with a back-to-basics approach to bold colour.

    The designer, 49, unveiled the range last week, along with a campaign in which he co-stars with supermodel Lara Stone.

    'I’m not in the ads because I’m vain,' he told WWD. 'A lot of people still don’t know who I am, and the product sells better with me in the ads.'

    Despite his commercial savvy it seems not everyone had confidence in his beauty venture.

    We tend to see narcissism as an unattractive characteristic, best left for reality TV stars.

    However, studies show that taking more than a passing glance at ourselves in the mirror could be a good thing.

    Last week, researchers from the Yale School of Medicine in the U.S. suggested that facial wrinkles could be a warning sign of osteoporosis, or brittle bone disease.

    They examined 114 post-menopausal women in their 40s and 50s, counting their wrinkles and then giving them X-rays. This revealed that those with the worst wrinkles had the weakest bones.

    ‘Bones and skin share common building blocks — collagen,’ says researcher Lubna Pal.

    The balm that claims to be a moisturiser, sun block, primer AND foundation, but does it work?

    We’re now so beauty savvy that when it comes to creating the perfect canvas, we know exactly how to juggle primers and concealers and what to do with mineral powders and colour correctors.

    But just when you thought you had it all sewn up, here comes another product. Meet the BB cream, hitting the UK this summer and — if experts are to be believed — set to be this year’s biggest beauty trend.

    Unless you’re tapped into the Korean cosmetics market or an avid reader of beauty blogs, you’ve probably never heard of BB creams. The initials stand for ‘blemish balm’, which might sound like a euphemism for spot cream, but actually refers to a cosmetic/skincare hybrid.

  • CoverGirl admits to using false lashes in ad for "false lash effect"

    June 1, 2011

    Rimmel got into hot water with the Advertising Standards Authority in the UK last year for putting false lashes on Georgia May Jagger in its 1-2-3 Looks Mascara ad. So it's little surprise that fellow cosmetic companies are being careful.

    But CoverGirl has gone from cautious to comical in its latest mascara ad, which stars America’s Next Top Model winner Nicole Fox.

    The print commercial for LashBlast Volume promises a false lash effect. However a small print disclaimer running alongside the image states that lash inserts were applied to Miss Fox's eyes before the product was applied.

  • Botox at too early an age could actually make you look OLDER

    May 31, 2011

    Thanks to the influence of celebrities, younger women than ever are demanding Botox injections a means of wrinkle prevention.

    But according to one British doctor, using the cosmetic filler too young could actually speed up the ageing process.

    In an article published today, Dr Darren McKeown claims the idea that Botox could halt the development of wrinkles is a myth, and could actually have the opposite effect.

    Writing in the Daily Telegraph, he said: 'There is no evidence that in the long term Botox works as a preventative, nor is there any licence to use it as such.

    'The drug works on wrinkles by relaxing the muscles responsible for expression lines and is licensed only for the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines.'

  • Regulate metals in Cdn cosmetics:report

    May 16, 2011

    Some makeup has shockingly toxic ingredients

    The report titled "Heavy Metal Hazards" by Environmental Defence calls on Health Canada to improve its cosmetics regulation and make companies list all metals on their product labels - moves which are being decried by representatives of the cosmetics industry.

    The group tested 49 makeup products and found all of them contained varying amounts of heavy metals, including one lip gloss which contained levels of arsenic and lead exceeding limits recommended by Health Canada.

    "The fact that virtually all the products were tested had some levels of these chemicals is a concern," said Rick Smith, executive director of Environmental Defence. "Heavy metals are linked to quite serious human disease."

    While the report found products tested largely met draft guidelines prepared by Health Canada in 2009, Environmental Defence is urging the government to revise the rules to reflect that lower levels of certain metals are "technically av [...]

  • How to set cream shadow

    April 16, 2011

    Formalfaces_article_article
    Cream eyeshadow can be a tricky make-up to master. If you’re after a vibrant, long-lasting hue, you need to have these few tricks down pat:

    -    Always prep your lids with a primer, we like glominerals gloLid Primer for a flawless base. Then wait a minute to ensure it’s been completely absorbed into your skin.
    -    The heat from your fingers can melt the cream, making it settle more easily into any fine lines or wrinkles. To avoid this, apply the cream shadow with either a lip or shadow brush and your application will be far smoother.
    -    To set the shadow in place and ensure it doesn’t fade, simply dust a little translucent finishing powder over the top.

    With these tips in mind, you’ll have no problem wearing a vibrant cream hue on your eyes all day long without suffering colour fade or obvious creasing!
