Five ways to achieve that bridal glow

New Delhi, Aug 28: It is imperative for brides-to-be to start focusing on their skincare regimen long before the big date starts looming, to look their prettiest. If you are one of them, it is recommended to start paying extra attention to your skin more than six months in advance, say experts.

Vidushi Aggarwal, Brand Head, Headstart International, lists five essentials that will help you achieve that spotless glow.

* Cleanse the skin and get rid of sweat, oil, dirt and other pollutants that your skin naturally collects throughout the day, before retiring to bed. Orange blossom and ginger cleanse the pores of the skin and at the same time maintain the oil balance without making it dry

* An exfoliator gets rid of dead skin cells, helping restore a radiant complexion. It is essential for a complete exfoliation to remove the signs of dullness

* Toner tones the skin post cleansing, helping sweep away impurities, leaving pores clean and less noticeable

* A moisturiser is an essential that should not be skipped for any skin type, especially at night to provide nourishment to the skin

* To go a step further, add an equalising mud mask to your regime. It balances the oil around the T-zone area on your face and controls the excess oil in that region whilst hydrating the rest of your face and helping combat dryness in the other regions of your face.

Datinderjeet Singh Tulla from the brand VLCC also shares tips on top five make-up essentials that can quick fix your makeup glitches:

* BB or CC cream: One doesn’t need to carry a foundation and a SPF separately, when a BB cream solves the purpose of both. It gives a light coverage, like a foundation, that is perfect for a few hours of socialising and also protects the skin from sun damage. Hence, a BB/CC cream is a must.

* Multi-tasking palette: This is one important item that every girl must have in her beauty bag. These tiny squares are multi-purpose and help solve a number of skin issues. You simply cannot do without this one. Use these as shadow, blush, highlighter or for contouring, and you’re good to go.

* Eyeliners: Gel, liquid or kohl (pencil) eyeliner, use these to adorn the eyes and give the face a glam look in the snap of a finger. Depending on the skin type, one can include any of these to the makeup kit.While gel eyeliners need too much perfection, for those who are always in a rush, recommend a kohl pencil which is handy and glides swiftly with almost no damage.

* Mascara: There is no better way to define eyes for a stunning look, than enhancing eye lashes with mascara.

* Lipstick: Lipstick can totally change the way you look. One can instantly transform the day look to a night look with a change of lipstick. For that bold, crisp and utterly polished look, lipsticks in tones of red, wine, bronze are a must have in the makeup kit.

* Also never overplay your cheeks. If you want to make a statement, emphasise your eyes or lips, but not both

* It is always recommended to add a good primer as pre-make-up prep for the skin which helps to even out the skin and minimise pores helping the foundation to glide smoothly and stay for longer

* A hydrating mist that helps to restore the moisture of the skin and keep the make-up fresh is a must for such weather

Get picture perfect hair, make up in easy ways

HAIRSTYLE MAKEUP

New Delhi, June 7: In the age of selfies, it’s important to get your hair and make up in place to get the best frame. So make sure you are opting for the perfect trend to keep the like button buzzing on social media.

Arpit Jain, MD and Founder, Auraine Botanicals and Vibhoar, CEO, NEU Blush list down ways for seemingly perfect and classy hair and make up everyday.

* Select hairstyles that are flattering to you: The hairstyle you opt for, should complement your face cut and the outfit that you are wearing. Avoid extreme hairstyles; you don’t want a hairdo bigger than your head. Try not to completely pull your hair back from your face, as this could make you look older.

* Eliminate flyaways: Ladies obsessed with picture perfect hair understand the necessity of moisturizing the hair to avoid flyaways. When our hair lacks moisture, it tends to look and feel dry, brittle and unhealthy. Spending time outside in the sun can majorly influence the moisture (or lack of) in your hair. Thus, use of hair serums, masks and sun protection is a must to maintain your hair’s health and protect it from damage.

* Go a little messy: Messy hair never goes out of style. So, just when you think you’ve styled your hair, toss your coif around to loosen things up in a right amount and you are all set to rock the camera.

* Select hair colour that enhances your hair: If you are planning to get those natural hair coloured, try the latest colours which go well with the Indian skin tone like honey brown, wine, caramel, chocolate brown in a balayage with highlights instead of going for global or simple highlighting. You must choose a hair colour that matches with your skin tone and don’t just go for any random hair colour.

* Don’t shy away from volumizing products: A regular and a great haircut is the foundation of any great hairstyle for fine hair-one that provides with volume in appearance. Other than this, a bit of strategic teasing along with volumizing products will work wonderfully on the camera.

* For the perfect make up

* Sunscreen is a must: No matter what, you should apply sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays. Apply sunscreen before you apply foundation or primer. Titanium based or Zinc oxide based sunscreens are considered to be best for the sensitive skin type. Summer make up kit must have a spray sunscreen or a gel-based sunscreen with minimum SPF 30.

* Kind of make up products: Use only long-wearing, smudge-proof, waterproof cosmetic that stays for long and gives a perfect finish to your makeup. Use face powder to set makeup and reduce the excess shine on your face. Foundation with a matte finish works as a miracle.

* Avoid the catchy look: Everyone loves a nice glow that shimmer gives us, but there is a big difference between a healthy radiance and an over-the-top shine. Do not use any cosmetics with a shimmery, shiny or glowing finish it can make you look bad in the photographs. A concealer and a nude lip colour is all you need this summer.

* Maximise the impact of those eyes: Curled lashes and mascara are musts as both open up your eyes, and the eyes are the focal point of a picture. Use clear light to medium colour eye shadow for highlighting. The more open they are, the more the light hits them and that’s what makes them twinkle.

* Play with the sharp features: Don’t forget to apply a dash of bronzer to nose, forehead, cheekbones and chin to get that perfect Brazilian look. Powered bronzers are light to use and do not turn streaky like cream bronzers in summer.

* The lip-factor: Wear bright lipstick as darker shades can have a minimizing effect on the lips; steer clear of a dark matte lip colour. It can look aging and unflattering. Sticking with brighter colours can help you look younger.

* And the final look: Brighten your smile ahead of time with a teeth whitener. Smile with your eyes and your mouth.

* Ivory: The colour Ivory is regarded as a rich, royal hue due to the subtle sophistication it emotes. It is also an apt bridal colour for the brides who would like to experiment more with their make-up and jewellery. An ivory lehenga with subtle golden thread work can look alluring with a ruby or an emerald jadau polki jewellery set. A dupatta can be a traditional maroon for a more traditional function or even a translucent organza dupatta in a dusty gold shade can look extremely chic for a sangeet/mehendi function.

* Silver grey: A silver-grey lehenga with badla work or mirror work is for the more experimental brides who believe in breaking the archaic norms. Use beautiful and intricate grey benarasi brocades with silver thread work for bridal lehenga skirts. A peach brocade dupatta with silver grey lehenga with pearl and gold traditional jewellery can be the right mix of novelty and tradition. The silver grey trend has been seen burning the ramp internationally as well. I believe the Indian brides will certainly accept this trend for the coming season.
