Priyanka Chopra's Makeup Look from Oscar 2016 Red Carpet

Picture Courtesy : allure
Our Desi-girl Priyanka Chopra clearly owned the Oscars 2016 Red Carpet walk. No one could really take off their eyes from this Indian bombshell. However, she had a simple mantra for the Oscar look it seemed, and that is less is more! Piggy Chops was seen in a very casually tied pony tail with middle parting. And her facial makeup too, was nothing overboard! Simple eye makeup, minimal blush and highlighting, and burgundy lips.

You can get the Priyanka Chopra Oscar red carpet look by following the steps mentioned below.

First, take a foundation which is at least 1 to 2 shades lighter than your skin tone and apply it all over your face and neck and any other exposed body parts. Dont forget, you need to have flawless skin all the time, so keep the concealer handy. Apply it on any flaws to get perfect skin tone.

Brow time now! Priyanka's eyebrow arches seem to be just perfect. You can do the same by first using an eye brow powder to fill any gaps in between the brow hair and try to create an arch in the middle part. Also after you have filled up your brows, take a concealer and clean up the entire eye area so that it looks cleaner and lighter. Next apply some highlighter just below the arch to highlight the area.

Eye makeup is quite simple in this Piggy Chop's makeup look. Take two shades of eye shadow preferably in brown. The lightest shade should be applied on the entire eye lids up to the crease and then take the darker shade and apply it on the crease, blending it upwards. Take the same dark eye shadow and apply it on the lower eye lids. Now she got really long volumnious eye lashes, so go ahead and take falsies and apply it on your upper eye lids. If you have individual false eye lashes, that would work better and create more naturalistic look. For the lower eye lashes, use a waterproof mascara.

Priyanka did not wear a lot of blush or bronzer, so if you have got really chubby cheeks go for bronzer, otherwise skip this step and add a dark pink blush on the apples of your cheeks very lightly. And add a few drops of illuminator on the upper portion of the cheeks. Also on the bridge of the nose.

Priyanka Chopra also got a very full lips. So in order to create the illusion of fuller lips, if you are not naturally blessed with that, is take a lip liner preferably in burgundy shade or a brown shade and line your lips a bit outward than where your natural lips end. Fill up the lips with a similar shade of lipstick color, a moisturizing burgundy lipstick would help! And finally, you can clean up the edges of the lips, with the help of a concealer to get a beautiful pucker!

Bblunt Climate Control Anti Frizz Leave-in Cream Review

RATING – 9 OUT OF 10

Today i am going to review the Bblunt Climate Control Anti Frizz Leave-in Cream. The product costs INR Rs 450 for a pack of 150g. I dont use a lot of hair styling products as i am very lazy and really head out fast without much of preparation. Also i would like to mention, i got long hair upto my hips and its a bit wavy and can get extremely frizzy at times. Now lets get into the product details first and then will talk about what i feel about the product.

What Bblunt claims about Bblunt Climate Control Anti Frizz Leave-in Cream? : This versatile cream ensures your hair looks great, however hot, dry or humid it gets out there. It enhances natural movement, smoothens and leaves you in charge, whatever the weather.
Specially created for Indian hair.
Protects from the environment and heat styling damage.

Directions to use : Works best on damp, towel dried hair. Take a small quantity into your palms. Apply evenly, focussing on mid-lengths and ends, keeping away from the scalp. Style as desired.

Ingredients : Aqua, Cyclopentasiloxane, Cetyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, Citric Acid, Magnesium Nitrate, Hydrolyzed Quinoa, Hydrolyzed Keratin etc.

So now i shall state what i feel about this Bblunt Climate Control Anti Frizz Leave-in Cream. The plastic container is black in color, and the product is white as you can see in the picture. When you apply it on the hair, it absorbs and dries without a trace. No stickiness, no oiliness after using it. And definitely i can say frizzes are damn well controlled by this cream. I dont have too much of frizziness in the hiar, but its not silky smooth too. And i have always applied this cream after shower, 1 or 2 hoiurs later, when my hair is not very damp but not totally dry too. A pea sized amount would be enough to last full day. However, i apply generally two times the same amount, since i want to ensure that i dont have to suffer frizzy hair at the end of the day. And trust me, this works!

The fragrance is a nice fresh smell. Nothing irritating or strong. The effects last quite a few hours. And i have also tested this product by rolling on the bed after using this, and when i got up, i found no frizz, and could comb my entire hair easily. I always apply this cream after i shampoo my hair, so i cant really comment, how this works if you have not washed your hair for a day or two and it is a bit sticky already! Also as i said i got wavy hair, i dont know if it works really well for curly hair. As curly hair got this tangle and frizz problem the most! But for normal wavy hair which has been never chemically treated or anything so far, this Bblunt Climate Control Anti Frizz Leave-in Cream is something which you can fall in love with.

Though it is a bit pricey, but quality comes with a price. And i think one bottle will last for 1 month easily. So worth investing, if you get 30 days of good hair, why not? Definitely i will repurchase Bblunt Climate Control Anti Frizz Leave-in Cream soon! Overall, i am happy with the results.

How to reduce the visibility of pores on your skin

Image Courtesy : acutezmedia
First and foremost, to help decrease the size of the skin pores, you need to follow a skincare routine which would help your skin get covered in all ways, like anti-aging, pores, pigmentation to name a few. Often oil and dirt which gets accumulated in the skin pores, make the pores look larger and bigger. So make sure you use a pore unclogging facial mask, at least once every week. Be consistent with this skincare regimen so that the pore size is shrinked. For a long term result, you need to be using face mask consistently and for a long period of time. Apply the mask and leave it upto 20 minutes, you can use it once to twice every week, or more frequently too.

For larger pore, a pore refining face primer can be beneficial. For oily skin, pores are more visible, so if you use a face primer, that will reduce the shine and also make the pores less visible. So take a beauty blender sponge or even a foundation brush would do, and apply a thin layer of the primer on the problematic areas. Let it be there for a minute. And then proceed by applying your bb cream or foundation over the primer.


After your makeup is done, you would obviously want it to stay for long. A long wear concealer will definitely help the makeup to stay on long without sliding off and can also minimize the visibility of pores. Apply the concealer lightly on the concerned areas and take a concealer brush or a beauty blender sponge and blend in well. Firstly apply the foundation, and then apply the concealer on the spots which needs to be covered up. This will help it stay in place for long. However, if you apply the concealer before applying foundation, it will run off your skin while applying the foundation, so never try that.

Aspirin masks are a big hit these days among women. Aspirin contains aminosalicylic acid, which is very close to salicylic acid. This is a great stuff for skincare and many pimple healing products contain this. Lemon juice which is also a part of the aspirin mask contains citric acid which has antibacterial properties, which helps tremendously in healing pimples and evens out the complexion.

Another ingredient of the mask is honey. It soothes the skin. Also baking soda is a part of the mask, which works as an exfoliator, very gentle for the skin and makes the skin soft and supple.

Ingredients of the Apirin Mask :-
·         3 to 6 aspirin tablets
·         1 big lemon
·         Baking soda
·         Glass cup to crush the aspirin
·         Dish

How to prepare the mask :- If you need more coverage, then go for 6 aspirin tablets or 3 would do. Put the tablets in a ziplock bag and crush them using the glass cup. You can also mixer or coffee grinder for this purpose. Even mortar and pestle is also fine.

Now place the crushed aspirin in a dish and squeeze lemon juice in it. Like 1-2 tablespoonful of lemon juice for 3-6 tablets. Allow the powdered aspirins to dissolve in the juice so that you get a nice paste.

If you have dry skin, mix 1 tablespoonful of honey, and moisturizer. Or you can use almond, coconut or olive oil too. Stir everything well. If you have oily skin, avoid this step.

You can now apply the paste as a face mask all over your face or for spot treatment, use it only on the pimple parts. Let it dry.


Now taking a warm wet washcloth and dip it in baking soda and use that to wipe off the mask from your face.
