In the particular still picture, Kriti has gone for minimalistic makeup look. After prepping the face well, go for a golden colored eyeshadow to cover the eyelids. Contour the eyes with a brown shadow by just putting it on the outer corner of the eyes. Blend the brown shadow with the golden base shadow, so that no harsh lines can be seen. Now, go for a pencil liner in black or brown to line the upper and lower lash line. Follow that with falsies. For the cheeks go for a soft rosy blush. And then on the lips, go for a soft pink lipstick, with a touch of gloss over it to complete the look.

Here's another still from Heropanti. Kriti has chosen to stick to her simple makeup looks in this still too. A light purple or lilac eyeshadow all over the eyelid gives a romantic makeup look. Followed by lining both the upper and lower lash line with black or brown eye liner. Fake lashes are extremely helpful to look prettier when one is trying the simple makeup look. Rosy blushes are a must when it comes to romantic makeup looks. Finally for the lips, Kriti has gone for a matte reddish orange lip color. If you want to make the lipcolor look softer, gently pat off your lips with a tissue paper to just get a tint of the lip color which remains.

Shraddha Kapoor's simple makeup looks

Shraddha Kapoor is a budding actress who has already grabbed many eyeballs not only for her roles but for her beauty too. She is extremely stylish and good looking lady, who is sensuous and charming. Daughter of one of Bollywood’s favourite anti-hero Shakti Kapoor, and sister of Siddharth Kapoor, Shraddha started acting in 2010. However it was last year in 2013 her film “Aashiqui 2” released, which made Shraddha super-hit amongst youngsters.

Many of us especially young girls do aspire to look like her. So how can you look like Shraddha Kapoor? If you are asking this question to yourself, then stop pondering. Here’s a short list of makeup tips which can make you look like Shraddha.

Flawless complexion with subtle pink blush is enough for face makeup. Shraddha Kapoor has sharp facial features, so dont neglect the contouring part. However, contouring should be done with a light hand. Blending is very important, so pay attention to that. In the particular picture, she has used a light bronze wash all over her eyelids as eyeshadow. Followed by a silver/white highlighter on the inner corner of the eyes to make the eyes pop out and look brighter.

Then a light brown eyeliner is used gently to line the upper lash line. It can then be smudged with the eyeshadow using a copper colored shadow. Skip falsies, but coat the eyelashes well with 2 coats of mascara at least! For the lower eyelid, just add a touch of white eyeliner on the outer corner of  the waterline. Do not put any harsh lines with the white eyeliner. As that would make the look harsh. When it comes to Shraddha Kapoor’s makeup, everything is soft and natural and romantic. So same should be followed. After that, you can just use a brown eyeliner pencil to draw the outer corners of the lower lash line. Put on some mascara on the lower lashes too.

Coming to the lips, moisturize the lips well. You should not be attempting to do the Shraddha Kapoor makeup look, with chapped dry lips. So once the lips are prepped well, put on some berry or maroon colored lipstick, avoid gloss.

This is another look of Shraddha Kapoor which is one of my personal favourites. She looks cute, and young, just a girl-next door look which is so very adorable and anyone can actually do this kind of makeup and go out without getting tensed whether the neighbours or co-workers or friends would jeer at her for doing too much of makeup! Pink is the theme of this makeup look of Shraddha Kapoor.

Start with clear face. After foundation and concealer, go for the eye makeup. Shraddha keeps her eye makeup real simple and easy. Not flashy. So just a peachy or champagne eyeshadow all over the eyelids. Follow that with brown eyeliner. Smudge everything well. Line the waterline too with the brown liner, concentrating more on the outer corner of the eyes. Apply coats of mascara on both lashes to finish the eye makeup. For the cheeks, apply a rosy blush. Put the blush mainly on the apples of the cheeks, it makes the face look rounder and younger. Dont forget to apply a bit of highlighter on the cheeks and also on the bridge of the nose. For the lips, keep it very simple, just use a pink gloss.

Shraddha Kapoor does not go for too much of makeup. So, if you want to look liker her, follow these steps and add a few steps here and there or skip some, and there you are! Just remember to keep it very simple.

Thalgo Silicum Extracts Intensive Lifting Effect Review

RATING : 8.7 OUT OF 10

Thalgo Silicum Extracts Intensive Lifting Effect comes at a package of 15 ml and priced at INR Rs 2700. Its an anti-ageing serum which claims to uplift the skin and rejuvenate it and make it look younger.

What Thalgo claims about Thalgo Silicum Extracts Intensive Lifting Effect? : Highly concentrated in lifting, refining agents, these extracts used as an intensive treatment redefine the contours of the lower face and neck. Your skin will feel reshaped and “lifted”, without the need for surgery.

Directions for use : Apply in the morning and evening to the face contours and neck, under the Silicum Concentrate or cream.

Thalgo Silicum Extracts Intensive Lifting Effect is a clear fluid with no color. Has got a nice mild fragrance. Comes in a plastic container, which is spill-proof so you can carry it too. Totally non-oily and non-greasy. Gets absorbed in the skin quickly. Well, i purchased the Thalgo Silicum Concentrate Intensive Restructuring Cellular Booster too, though i never applied both the things together as recommended by Thalgo. Well, i will review that product too very soon.

Anyways, coming to the effects i could observe after application of the product. Thalgo Silicum Extracts Intensive Lifting Effect was used two times a day as directed by Thalgo. Its a good product indeed, gives a bit of lifting effect. Quite impressed.

Avani Advanced Micro-Capsule Serum Review


Avani Advanced Micro-Capsule Serum is one such product which is lying on the shelves after being used up totally. I was thinking of reviewing this one for long, however due to shortage of time, i really could not make it before today! Well, the product costs INR Rs 3399 though you will get it at a discounted price in online stores. It comes in a package of 30 ml. Lasts for almost a month.

What Avani claims about Avani Advanced Micro-Capsule Serum? : Enriched with natural plant extracts, collagen and vitamins A,C & E. By combining choice, natural ingredients with the latest in cosmetic technology, we have created an advanced & effective serum that will actively reduce the appearance of tired, aging skin, fine lines & wrinkles. This select blend of Dead Sea minerals, plant extracts, essential oils & Vitamins A, C & E provides the serum with a rich concentration of anti-aging, anti-oxidant and moisture boosting ingredients. With the addition of active enzymes & collagen , this serum will ensure that skin is left smooth, supple & hydrated.

 Directions of use : Using your fingertips, gently apply one or two drops to your face with a light tapping motion. To complete the treatment, apply AVANI Timeless Skin Repair Anti-Aging Cream.

Ingredients : Water, Green tea extracts, witch hazel extracts, collagen, saponins, sodium hyaluronate, carbomer, polysorbate 20, triethanolamine, viscum album extract, hydrolyzed wheat protein etc.

Anti-ageing stuffs are generally tried by my mother, so as usual i gave her this product too for review. Avani Advanced Micro-Capsule Serum is light weight serum with a nice fragrance. Not much product is required, a few drops are enough to be applied on the face and neck. However, if you apply too much then it tends to get sticky on the skin. Oily skinned people can use this product as its not at all oily. Dry skinned people too can use this and then apply a moisturizer after that.

As claimed by the company, Avani Advanced Micro-Capsule Serum keeps the skin fresh and young. It makes the skin smooth and soft. However, it wont give an extreme boost to the skin or makes the appearance of your skin young instantly. A good product to use to keep the skin hydrated and fresh and protect it from ageing. But of course its not botox to restore youthfulness to the skin in a minute or so.
