Hey girls, i am back with another makeup look breakdown. This time its from the film Tanu Weds Manu Returns. So, in this post i will be writing about Kangana Ranaut’s makeup look in the recently released super-hit Hindi film.

This is one of my favourite look of Kangana from Tanu Weds Manu Returns film. This is basically a bridal look, and actually these are the clips from the first part of the film which were incorporated in the second part. Here Kangana is seen in a green lehenga choli, with hair pulled and tied at the back. She got her foundation, concealing, powdering done well, and then as can be seen her eyebrows has been given a round shape, instead of the stereotypical arched brows. Eye makeup is very light. Just a thin layer of eye shadow in beige or flesh tone all over her eyelids, and on top off that she got some medium brown eyeshadow on till the crease. And throughout the film, she could be seen with the thick winged eyeliner look on the upper lash line, keeping the waterline bare. Just to make the eyes bigger, white liner can be used on the bottom lash line. Yes then curling the lashes and applying generous coats of volumnizing mascara is very essential. A subtle hint of pink blush on the apples of the cheeks would be fine. And finally, red glossy lips completes the look.

I also love Tanu aka Kangna’s look in this still, where she has applied very less makeup and yet looks stunning. This particular makeup look is not only suitable for saree-wearers but also if you are casually dressing up in a hurry. Rosy cheeks is the first thing we can notice in this clip. Eye makeup has been kept simple, with just a beige shadow applied all over the eyelids and then black kajal has been applied very thickly on the upper lash line almost half way upto the crease. Kind of a smokey eye effect. Finally, on her lips Tanu got soft muted matte pink lipcolor. Hair has been curled and either tied back or left open with a side parting throughout the movie for Tanu’s character.

And finally this look of Tanu aka Kangana is gorgeous. She was seen in an orange salwar suit with her hair curled. Coral blush has been applied generously on her cheeks. For eyes, light eyeshadow has been applied with a thick black liner on her upper lash line. On the lower lash line, starting from the outer corner of the eyes, the same black liner has been used to line 1/4th of her bottom lash line. The rest 3/4th of the bottom lash line has been lined by a white pencil liner. She got faux eye lashes on in this particular song clip thats Ghani Bawri. She got bright orangish red lipstick on her lips.

As you know, Kangana played double roles in this flick, one was very feminine that is of Tanu’s the other is androgynous that is of Datto. Datto got bob cut hairstyle, and usually wore casual t-shirt and full pants or track pants. She is basically an athelete in the film. So very nominal makeup has been used to create the role. Eyebrows has been mildly arched to bring out the difference between the two characters. A soft brown eyeshadow has been applied on the eyelids, and after tightlining the eyes well with a black liner, she applied coats of lengthening mascara on the eye lashes. On the lips she put on some soft brown matte lipstick and patted off the excess with a tissue. Thats all. This look of Datto is perfect for anyone who believes in no makeup look.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was seen in a maroon gown designed by Oscar De La Renta. She used a maroon or dark red lipstick on her lips, rest of the makeup was soft. After the foundation routine, Aishwarya used a beige creamy eye shadow on her eyelids upto the crease. To cut crease, she applied a bit of plum and brown shadows on the crease line and blended everything well. To highlight the brow bones, she opted for a soft golden highlighting eye shadow. Then with a black eyeliner, she drew lines on her upper lash lines, and winged them out at the outer corners of her eyes a bit. Taking a bit of dark brown eyeshadow on an angular eye brush, she just applied it with a light hand on the lower lash line. Finally, she completed the eye makeup by applying mascara on the upper and lower eye lashes. For her cheeks, she applied a matte pink blush.

No information is given about this look of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan at the Cannes in the L’oreal website.

This was Ash’s last red carpet appearance at the 2015 Cannes film festival this year. She was all decked up in the white ruffled outfit designed by Ralph and Russo. And she went for silver Jimmy Choo peep toes alongwith this dress. She got a very glowing radiant look this time. After applying foundation, concealer, translucent powder, just to add a hint of rosiness on her cheeks she used a pinkish blush. This makeup look is not a heavy one, so Ash did not go for any dramatic eye makeup. She used a matte dull silver white eyeshadow all over her eyelids upto the crease and on the crease she packed on a matte dark chocolate brown eyeshadow. Then she lined her upper lash line with black eye liner and took a black matte eye color and using an angled brush, winged out the eyeliner at the outer corners of the eyes. With a white eye pencil, she just applied a wee bit of it to line the waterline. Finally, she put on several coats of mascara on the upper and lower lashes. To add healthy glow to the face, she put on a bit of highlighter just above the apples of her cheeks. And to complete the look, she went for a nude colored lipstick.

As per the L’oreal Paris website, Aishwarya used L’oreal Lucent Magique Blush in Sunset glow on her cheeks. For her eyes, she used the Super Liner Gel Intenza in shade profound black to line her eyes, and for lashes picked up the L’oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara. L’oreal also recommends to get the L’oreal Color Riche Swarovski Moist Mat in shade Maple Mocha to get the similar lip color.

Aishwarya was recently seen in a lilac outfit by Elie Saab at the amfAR fundraising gala event which took place at the Annual Cannes film festival. To match her floral lilac ensemble, her makeup was kept subtle. After  the foundation, concealer and powdering part, she dabbed on lilac eyeshadow on her eyelids upto the crease. Taking a flesh toned shadow, it was used to blend out any harsh lines created by the lilac shadow. She lined her upper lash line with black liner and as usual used coats of mascara on upper and lower lashes. On her cheeks, she sweeped on a light rosy blusher and applied a bit of illuminator too. On her lips, Ash used a light brown creamy lip color.

This is all about Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s makeup looks at the Cannes. In this second part i loved her in the Oscar De La Renta couture gown for the Jazba photocall. Rest of her appearances could have been better.

Bottega Di Lungavita’s Vita-Age Aurum Filler Regenerante Review

RATING – 5 OUT OF 10

Today i am gonna review about the Vita-Age Aurum Filler Regenerante. I bought two of this in the recent past, and used it for more than a month now. It contains 15 ml of the product and costs INR 1590. It comes in a white tube with blue cap, and the outer packaging is paper-made colored white and blue.

What Bottega Di Lungavita claims about Vita-Age Aurum Filler Regenerante Staminal Project ? :
Regenerating filler containing stem cells and hyaluronic acid. Exclusive product with a regenerating and filling effect strengthened by the use of an innovative concentrate containing stem cells of Leontopodium alpinum (edelweiss), rich in polyphenols with very strong antioxidant and regenerating properties. The Filler Vita Age Aurum fights the signs of age with a triple action: It smoothes expression wrinkles with a filling effect, fights the deterioration of structural macromolecules like hyaluronic acid and collagen, and stimulates cell renewal. It regenerates eye and lip contours, fills the most marked wrinkles and minimizes small expression lines with an immediate lifting effect.

Directions to use : Apply small amounts evenly onto eye and lip contour areas. Massage gently until completely absorbed.

Vita-Age Aurum Filler Regenerante smells wonderful, thats the first thing i would like to state here. It got a creamy texture and the cream is white in color. Its not greasy or oily, and absorbs well into the skin. Its supposed to fill up any wrinkles and minimize lines however i did not notice any such difference. Its okay to be tried and tested once, but not a great product or useful one.


I already bought 2 of Vita-Age Aurum Filler Regenerante and both of the packages have been completely used now. I am not gonna repurchase this though!

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s Makeup Looks at Cannes 2015 (Part 1)

Image Courtesy : Indianexpress
Last year Aishwarya Bachchan looked nothing less than a goddess in that famous golden fishtail gown designed by Roberto Cavalli. She opted for very bright red lips with rosy cheeks, and voluminous lashes. However this time at the Oscars in Cannes 2015, so far her looks were not that awesome or jaw-dropping like the last time.

However, in this blogpost i am gonna talk about Ash and her makeup looks and style at the Cannes 2015 till now. So read on, if you wanna know about her makeup look at this year’s Cannes film fest.

Till now, Aishwarya Bachchan only made 3 appearances at the 68th Cannes film festival. The very first one, is the one seen in the picture. Here Ash is attending the Variety Event and she is all dolled up in Sabyasachi floral outfit. She got her face foundation, concealer, powdering done properly. On her cheeks, she used a rosy blush very subtly. Her eye makeup too is not that heavy here, just a light brown eyeshadow, even a beige shadow would do. And she lined her upper lash line with black eyeliner and coats of mascara on the lashes. Thats all for the eyes. Moving to the lips, she got a deep red lipstick.

L’oreal Paris says, for this look of Ash, she has used True Match Liquid Foundation in shade Beige on face. On her eyes, she has used Super Liner Black Lacquer eyeliner and Volume Million Lashes Mascara.

For her red carpet debut at the Cannes film festival 2015, Aishwarya was seen in a sea green gown by Elie Saab. Now for her makeup, after the foundation routine, Aishwarya put on some rosy colored blusher. She got an ivory colored eyeshadow all over her upper eye lid, and on the outer V of her eyes got a medium dark brown shadow. After lining her upper lashline with a black liner, she winged it outwards. For the lower lash line, she used a metallic sea green color, which is very shimmery. She also used on the waterline, white eye pencil. Heavy coats of mascara completed the look. And on her lips she got a brownish red lipstick. The texture of the lipstick seems to be very moisturizing as the shine can be seen in the photo.

L’oreal Paris gives out the names of the few L’oreal products Aishwarya used to achieve the look. She used the L’oreal Rogue which is Lucent Magique Blush in Duchess Rose on cheeks. To line her eyes she used the L’oreal Super Liner 36H Intenza in shade Profound Black. For her lashes, she used the L’oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara. And finally on her lips, the former Miss World used the L’oreal Color Riche Swarovski Moist Mat in shade Arabian Night.

She was also seen attending the photo calls which took place at Le Mill which is a luxury store. Ash chose to wear a white cropped top tucked in teamed up with white printed trousers. Its a Stella McCartney ensemble. She got dark red lips. She got a very light eye makeup though, with just light beige shadow on the upper lids, and blended it with a taupe shadow on the crease as well as on the outer corners of the eyes, black liner which lined her upper lash line. Mascara on the lashes, and a bit of pink blush.


The last look of Aishwarya was really fantastic though it was not a red carpet look. Rest of the two looks could have been better. In the first look she looked quite aged. And in the second look, where she walks the red carpet for the very first time this year, that sea green gown and her dark red lips did not go well together.
