festive makeup diwali

New Delhi, Oct 13: In festive times, most people tend to laden up the skin with numerous varieties of cosmetics to look good. However, they end up making the condition even worse as even the best of cosmetics do no good when the skin condition from the inside is completely troubled. So, this Diwali, be smart and prepare your skin in advance.

Priyanka Goyat from Rejove Clinique and Sandeep Babbar, Revyve share few tips and solutions to ensure the perfect skin radiance all through the festive season:

* Get ready to maintain a distance from fireworks: Most fireworks have high magnesium and cordite content causing heavy smoke emissions in the environment so take some extra precautions like staying at least six to seven feet from the burning firecrackers.

Other than that, one can also cover up the face with a scarf or dupatta to keep the risks of burning face with sparks and pellets at bay.

It’s good to clean out the face thoroughly with mild soap and water and treat the skin with moisturizer after firework session to ensure that no harmful pollutant seeps deep into the layers of skin and do harm.

* Make CTM (Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing) a part of your daily routine: Festive season, especially during Diwali it is the time when makeup is applied on the skin the most. To ensure the best of makeup effect, it’s necessary to make the skin healthy and makeup-friendly first. For this, one needs to religiously follow the mantra of cleansing, toning and moisturizing (CTM) at least once in a day.

* Munch-in the healthy nutrients:The sudden change in atmospheric condition due to increased fireworks and dipping atmospheric humidity can further deteriorate the condition of the skin. Make it a point to regularly fuel up the body with juicy fruits, green leafy vegetables and plenty of water.

Proper workout or yoga routines are also necessary to clean out the toxins and impurities from the body.

Try to keep the consumption of sweet and oily things under control as in a few days it starts reflecting on the face in the form of dull, weary skin; pimples; puffiness around eyes; wrinkles and weight gain.

* Scrub the impurities out: Before one starts with applying the makeup, it’s necessary to prep the skin with deep cleaning and exfoliation. Either buy a scrub as according to your skin-type or consult a dermatologist to refer the same and use it as and when prescribed.

* Post-fest care and treatments: When wiping off the makeup once the festivities are over, it’s advised to be extra careful and not to be lazy and careless with the process. Because it’s not just the makeup that is there on the face, instead there are layers of impurities and dust from the heavily polluted environment also.

After removing the makeup properly with the wipes, then go with the regular cleansing, toning, and moisturizing routine. Don’t forget to apply the night cream on the parts exposed.

Airport looks

New Delhi, July 16: Airport looks are as important as black-tie events nowadays. So, while ensuring that outfit is on-point, let’s not forget to get a flawless beauty and hair look.

TIGI Educator Audrey D’Souza and Rashmi Shetty, Pond’s Skin Expert help you get jet-setting hair and skin.

D’Souza shares three styles for tresses trend while you are in transit.

* Scarfed hair: Headscarves are a simple accessory that make traveling in style almost too easy and the patterns and colours can help brighten up even the worst in-transit blues. Simply tie a pre-stitched hair scarf behind your ears by either back-combing or side parting your hair

* Mermaid braid: Get the base right by applying a texturing serum. Part the hair into two and work with volumizing mousse for a messy, bed head look. Maintain the tempo and take smaller sections using the Dutch braiding technique and secure the end with a black ribbon. Finish the look with a texturizing spray

* Halfsie Pony: Spritz dry shampoo onto your roots and gather half your hair into a messy. The Half-twist bun for a girl-next-door hairstyle is effortlessly chic

Shetty shares a skincare routine to cope with in-flight cabin air which causes the skin to dry very quickly:

* Before you get on the flight, it’s good to apply a good light moisturizer enriched with Vitamin E or something like a hydrating gel that quickly absorbs in the skin and is cooling on your skin

* Once on the flight, don’t neglect the lips and nails, I advise using a good cuticle oil and an oil rich lip balm to keep them from getting chapped and dry

* For long flights, it’s important not to forget to hydrate yourself along with the skin, drink water and intake lot of fluids

* Use a good serum before going to sleep, I recommend choosing a good serum that is clinically proven to boost skin’s cellular energy and reduce spots, tighten pores and even brighten skin quality.

* The right ingredients make a huge difference, the DermPerfect complex for example, contains two powerful bio-actives (Vitamin B3 and Hexyl Resorcinol) that are known to work on these skincare needs

* Before stepping out, instead of heavy makeup and foundations, I recommend using a multipurpose product like a good BB cream that almost acts like a one-step solution that gives coverage, protects skin from sun and is clinically proven to reduce spots and tighten pores and boost radiance in the skin.

New Delhi, July 12 (IANS) When the lens briefly replaced the brushes for ‘Indian Picasso’ M. F. Husain, what took birth on the streets of Chennai in the 1980s was a rare series of photographs called the “Culture of the Streets”. Cited as a collector’s item, 20 individually signed photographs are on exhibition at the Art Heritage Gallery here.

In the photographic series, the Indian modern master (1915-2011) features India’s popular culture through cinema hoardings on the roads of Chennai.

“Along with graffiti on the street walls, Husain recognizes this as the authentic, intense visual culture that has developed in our teeming, urban metropolis,” the Gallery said.

His use of silver foil photo paper is an example of the artist’s experiments with unorthodox materials and techniques, it added.

Having worked as a billboard painter in his initial days, his association with the streets of India goes back a long way.

Primarily known as a painter, Husain’s experimentation with the camera came at a time when the burgeoning film industry was all too visible in the popular culture in India.

“Culture of the Streets” is part of a group exhibition at the gallery which has photographs by photographer Cop Shiva, along with paintings, drawings and sculptures by noted artists like Gouri Vemula, Zai Jharotia, Sunanda Khajuria, Rajesh Deb, Arun Pandit and G. Reghu.

The show is open for viewing till August 6.

New Delhi, June 22: Shoes are a crucial part of a wardrobe especially the leather ones. A right pair can accentuate your look whereas a wrong choice can break your entire look no matter how great the outfit so opt for the one that suits your personality, comfort.

Ritesh Srivastava, CEO at Elitify.com and Jyoti Narula, Director at JOE SHU share a few tips to keep in mind while buying a pair of genuine leather shoes.

* Shoe surface: The tactile feel of the shoe surface plays a significant role in deciding the authenticity of leather by the buyer. A pair of genuine leather shoes will usually have a sanded and refinished surface. It would not have a plastic feel or artificial finish that is common with faux leather.

* The insole: One should examine the detailing of the inner lining of the shoes which is another important indicator of quality. Genuine leather shoes will have an extra padded insole that works as a cushion between the feet and the shoes giving comfort and ensuring a sturdy grip.

* Price factor: As a general rule genuine leather costs more. It demands a relatively higher cost for the kind of durability, aesthetic appeal and fine detailing it brings to the footwear.

* Finishing and stitching: Aesthetics play a very important role while choosing a pair of shoes. An elegant silhouette is what adds to instant appeal along with its perfect coloration. The stitching should also be neat and smooth, thereby depicting attention to detail. More so in handcrafted or hand painted shoes.

* Comfort: A fine craftsman of shoes will always focus on comfort along with the styling. There is nothing worse than a shoe that bites.

* Rich fragrance of leather: A crucial point in identifying a real leather shoe is its smell. A shoe made of genuine leather will always carry a rich fragrance which is a natural odour. Authentic leather will never smell of chemicals or plastic.

* The sole: Sole is an important indicator of quality. The better the sole and the lining the more comfort and grip it offers. The shoes should always be light in weight. An extra layer of the sole between the shoe body and the feet will give freedom to the wearer for long hours.
