  • Maintain honeymoon beauty

    According to TripSavvy, 99 percent of couples who choose to have traditional weddings take a honeymoon. Around 1.4 million couples in the United States depart for honeymoons around the world each year, spending an average of $4,466 on the trip.

    Though not nearly as pressure-filled as wedding planning, honeymoons do require some planning to ensure a fun and memorable trip. In a Bridal Guide survey, wedding couples indicated they were most likely to worry about wardrobe, swimsuits, sunglasses, sunscreen, and luggage when getting ready to depart.

    Couples who want to look their best on their honeymoon and in their honeymoon photos should not forget to pack the following items.

    Sunscreen: Sunscreen is a must whether you’re traveling to the pink beaches of a tropical island or the slopes of a ski resort. Choose a product that protects against both UVA and UVB rays, and be sure to reapply every 80 minutes or so, especially after perspiring or swimming. Sunscreen will help prevent damaging and painful sunburns that can adversely affect a trip.

    Makeup-remover wipes: Even high-end resorts may not provide the correct face bar for removing makeup and refreshing skin. Makeup-removing wipes can offer deep cleaning in a few convenient swipes.

    Hair refresher: Brides who want to get a few extra days out of a wedding day hairstyle should pack a hair refreshing spray to tame static and add UV protectors that keep locks pampered until they’re ready to wash. Dry shampoos also allow for a little refreshing of hair between daytime adventures and evening dinner.

    Eye cream: There may be a few late nights while you’re enjoying romantic, candlelit meals or hitting up the hot spots around a resort. Ensure honeymoon photos do not show tired eyes with an eye cream that can reduce puffinesss.

    Tinted moisturizer or BB cream: A high-quality tinted moisturizer or BB cream will hydrate skin and add just a sheer wash of color to even out skin tone. Pair with lip balm and a waterproof mascara and your honeymoon face will be ready.

    Teeth whitening treatment: Couples who invested time and money into achieving whiter teeth for their weddings don’t want to let all of that hard work go to waste. Brush on whitening product after eating and drinking to prevent stains and freshen breath.

    Blotting papers: Humid climates may cause perspiration and oils to leach out of the skin. Tame shine and that greasy feeling with blotting papers.

    Light fragrance: Heavy perfumes have no business on breezy honeymoon escapes. Find a light, flowery scent or something tied to nature, like citrus in a travel-sized atomizer.Read more at:purple bridesmaid dresses | wedding dresses

  • Ageless threads of beauty

    Embroidery or thread work has an uncanny knack of bringing an outfit to life. A floral motif on a white organza kurti, for example, will not only jazz up your look but also add a trendy twist to it. In fact, even Bollywood celebrities like Alia Bhatt, Katrina Kaif, Shraddha Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Madhuri Dixit and Radhika Apte, to name a few, have embraced thread work as their go-to design on several occasions.

    Time and again Alia has been spotted with chic embroidered outfits — be it a traditional kurta or gown with a dash of popping red needle work. Even Hollywood star Emma Watson was spotted wearing an embroidered gown at an event recently. “It’s incredibly challenging to create something with the traditional crafts of India yet it is simultaneously very universal. Globally, I feel people do have a huge respect for Indian craftsmanship, we just need to take out the ethnic feel out of the ethnic techniques and create a more global product; that’s what the world demands,” says designer Rahul Mishra, who has been working relentlessly to make embroidery appealing to the global consumer.

    While working with decorative threads, Rahul treats his clothes like canvasses, expressing himself through embroidery. He further says, “I look at all these different types of embroideries as techniques to create a more contemporary design. I use a lot of mix media while exploring different artworks and techniques. We could create French knots using aari and zardozi work, or we could be working on something with a lot of patchwork, or maybe even create something with a Parsi gara. It’s really just about exploring these traditional techniques to find new ones,” adds Rahul.

    Explaining about the ever-so-voguish trend of embroidered clothes, designer Divya Reddy says, “Thread work can never be out of fashion but how you wear it does matter a lot. The key is not to go overboard. Florals are always the go-to thing when it comes to thread works but a quirky cartoon bird too can do wonders.” Thread work suits everyone and any body type; it’s the cut and the silhouette which has to be taken care of. “The placement of flowers does the trick. If one wants a slender waistline, floral work will be the heaviest on the waist, going light all over,” shares designer Shriya Som.

    Whether you are off to work or going for a casual Sunday brunch with friends, a denim jacket with embroidered motifs paired with palazzos can do wonders. Or if one’s in a dilemma about going completely desi or sporting a fusion look, an embroidered skirt can save the day! Pair it with a cold-shoulder top, a crisp white shirt or a crop top to ace the fusion style, feels celebrity stylist Ami Patel.

    Designer Gaurang Shah too loves to experiment with the needle quite often. “I get inspired by embroideries like chikankari, zarodzi, patti ka kaam (appliqué), aari, kasuti and other very rooted traditional handwork. While most designs that are attempted in embroidery are usually florals, I like to break away from conventions and explore geometrics, designs inspired from Persian tiles and a play of colours to get a 3D depth,” he says. For city’s designer Vijay Rana, it’s the love for transforming plain fabrics by using threads into artworks that creates magic.Read more at:tea length wedding dresses |

  • Why This Is the Year to Ditch Boring Makeup

    When it came to beauty in my twenties, I always kept things simple. Having spent high school and college immersing myself in every off-kilter product imaginable, I left the glitter, candy colors, and my sense of cosmetic adventure behind for new ways to look polished but never done. It’s the only way to go once you hit adulthood, I thought. But, the amount of product and effort it took to fake “no-makeup makeup” is not nearly as fun as the alternative, so once 2018 rolled around, I found myself eager to leave the basics behind.

    Enter Fenty Beauty: In Rihanna’s world, where a wide range of swirling shades and colors belong, mixing textures and “going for it” is actively encouraged. Who can look at the blingy gold Trophy Wife highlighter or the vibrant crimson Stunna Lip Paint without wanting to play? Her latest, Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick, keeps the unapologetically bold vibe going with Crayola-worthy hues like periwinkle Ya Dig?! and terracotta Freckle Fiesta. Never one to shy away from the unexpected, Rihanna has experienced the full rainbow of lip color. As for the rest of us who aren’t pop royalty? I wasn’t so sure.

    So, I tested out my first lip shade, the blinding orange Saw-C and was immediately taken aback by my reflection in the mirror: a mouth full of matte tangerine that screamed, “Look at me!” It was not anything like my go-to shade, Rouge Dior’s rosy brown Saint Germain, that sits firmly on my vanity. Though I’d only intended to wear it in my parent’s house, I found myself second-guessing the choice. For me, it’s easier to layer on ten bright eyeshadows, which I can smartly shield behind my thick-framed spectacles, than walk about in a statement lipstick. Screw it, I thought (another Bad Gal–approved mantra), and I swiped the equally vibrant Chili Mango Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick onto my cheeks and lids before walking out the door.

    What followed was a crash course in makeup-as-a-conversation-starter. After years of taupes and nudes and the occasional purple manicure, I had forgotten how much of a reaction makeup can provoke. Suddenly, it seemed as though everyone had an opinion. “Whoa there, Rainbow Brite!” screamed a neighbor upon seeing me in the monochromatic mandarin. “I like it!” (I smiled, in spite of the ’80s cartoon reference.) The next day, the hot fuchsia Candy Venom prompted my Uber driver to say I looked “dope,” while the bruise brown PMS, a hue that plays well with a layer of bronzer and winged black liner, got me kudos from a friend who is also a makeup artist. The reviews weren’t all positive. The frosty lilac One of the Boyz made my sister blurt out, on Christmas Eve no less, “You look like you’re wearing sidewalk chalk on your lips.” The minty Midnight Wasabi? “I mean, I don’t hate it,” announced a skeptical acquaintance midway through a holiday party. “You’re reminding me to eat my vegetables, so that’s a plus.”

    No longer able to blend into the crowd, my lipstick choices were forcing me to engage with the world around me. I found myself chatting with strangers about eyeshadow techniques, application processes—once I even returned the thumbs-up sign to a band of mall goths who approved of my inky navy Clapback. My trial took me online, too: In search of fresh ideas, I found myself heading down a rabbit hole of YouTube tutorials and Reddit forums, and becoming a part of the beauty community in a way I hadn’t been since my collegiate days on Makeupalley.

    After a week of playing in Rih’s world, I feel different. Emboldened by the varied responses, I find myself reaching for all makeup brands with newfound energy. Call it the Rihanna Effect or a colorful variation on the “new year, new you” mantra many are singing this month. Either way, I am ready to have some fun in 2018. Because isn’t that what being an adult is all about?Read more at: |
