5 Mistakes We All Make While Wearing Traditional Clothes

No matter how much we claim we love Pizzas and burgers, we always go back to Rajma chawal because we Indians are always desi by heart. The same applies to clothes too. No matter how many times we shop from Forever 21 or Mango, we still love the stuff from Craftsvilla. So for all the ladies reading this, here is some insight into correcting the common mistakes we do with the traditional clothing.

1. Too much bling

This had to top the list. I mean, we love bling all right, but let’s not go to that extent where one could literally fill the purpose of a discotheque or worse, a flash light. Lets curb our hard core desi instincts and limit our bling factor while choosing traditional clothing. And of course, I don’t mean wear plain colors and boring things, but whatever you wear, understand the outfit and don’t go overboard.

blingy-traditional-wear2. Ignoring the Body Type

Yes, okay, we understand that you liked that fish cut lehenga your younger cousin wore in that wedding. But you can’t go for the same if you have an Apple shaped body. Instead, go for the A-line lehenga which you’ll rock. So here, the moral is, always know and understand your body type and dress accordingly. Pick designs and fabrics in traditional clothing that will flatter you, rather than following the style blindly.

Bodytypes-while-wearing-traditional-wear3. Right Undergarments

Another mistake we all do. No matter what the outfit is, or where you’re gonna wear it, wearing the correct undergarments is important. And fun fact is that we indians are infinitely shy about the lingerie that most of us don’t even know the right bra size. If you’re one of them, go to a lingerie store and get your size measured. The people in the store are paid for it, so don’t feel shy! And On a serious note, it is never attractive if you wear wrong sizes and look shapeless, ladies!

under-garments-for-traditional-wear4. Colors, Prints, Fabrics and Designs

Going for bigger, bulkier and those weird prints is again, not so good looking. And colors of course. Again, your body type must be kept in mind while buying anything. Say if you have bulky arms, don’t opt for mega sleeves or sleeveless pieces. Or staying away from body hugging materials, choosing flowy, free fabrics, things like that make a lot of difference. Choosing the right fabric always matters. Loud colors and sequined traditional clothing are okay for certain occasions and some night parties but a total no if you wanna wear them during your work hours.

bulky-prints-in-traditional-wear5. Jewelry and Makeup with Traditional Clothing

We Indians have a tendency to go a notch higher when it comes to jewelry with traditional clothing. Always remember that your jewelry should be opposite of your clothes. That is, if you are wearing a heavily embroidered clothing, go easy on jewelry. If you’re wearing something extremely simple, then you can not go wrong with some heavy jewelry. And when it comes to makeup, less is always more, ladies. Take good care of skin to avoid that extra layer of base. Also, pay clear attention to your footwear. Always wear something that flatters your overall attire.

Busting 6 Makeup Myths : The Makeup Diaries

  1. Makeup Causes breakouts

Ah, the one we’ve been hearing this one since ages and ages. This makeup myth is so ancient! So let’s start out list by busting it first. Makeup doesn’t cause breakouts. I repeat, it doesn’t. What causes breakouts is the hygiene with which you use your makeup. Not cleaning your brushes frequently, not checking the expiry dates of the products, not removing makeup properly, this causes acne and breakouts. Therefore, don’t blame the makeup. Blame your poor hygienic habits!

acne-makeup-myth2. Primer isn’t needed if you can blend your makeup well

Noo. Just No. Don’t ever believe in this myth. Primer is very very essential to establish an even and proper base. It is very important to apply primer before you go for foundation. It not only ensures the even and smooth application but also helps your foundation stay longer. So next time, don’t skip foundation for anything.

primer-makeup-myth3. Red lipstick is not for everyone

Oh come on, what sort of garbage makeup myth is this?  Red lipstick is for everyone! You just have to get the shade that matches you properly. Check the undertones and see if they match you. Use the tester products before purchasing it and never ever go blindly for the product just by seeing it on the label or the bullet. And ideally for Indian skin tones, Red lipsticks with blue and brown undertones look fab!

red-lipstick-makeup-myth4. Oily skinned people don’t need moisturizers

This is so bad! Skin care is for everyone. Be oily, dry or mixed skin, moisturizing and hydrating skin is always important. It is a compulsory task if you want your skin to be glowy and healthy. So don’t listen to anyone who says you don’t need moisturizing because of oily skin. However, pay attention to the kind of moisturizer that you take. Don’t go for the oil based ones. Always choose the light and moisture based one for your skincare needs. Makeup myth #4 busted!

moisturizers-makeup-myth5. Match foundation to your wrist :  A makeup myth

Nope. not cool at all. Most of us do this. We go to the makeup store to try the foundation and what do we do? We try to match it our wrist, which is wrong. Always try the foundation to your jawline. If the shade of the foundation you chose blends up into your skin well, it is the right shade. If you had to blend it with your fingers into your skin to look natural, is not your shade. However, we might not always find the exact shade of your skin in all brands all the time so  if you get a shade that’s more or less your skin shade, go for it.

foundation-makeup-myth6. Concealer should be a shade or two lighter than your skin

Just one word. Don’t. The closer shade it is to your skin, the better. Concealer that matches your skin will help you cover everything properly and the foundation will help to mask things up successfully. But don’t ever go to something that’s a shade lighter, it gives a cakey appearance and if your dark circles are that bad, just go with color corrector. Makeup myth #6 busted!

How to Nail the No-Makeup Look

Sometimes, less is more. We surely love that elaborate wing, false eyelashes, heavy contour that makes our face all sharp edges and that bronzer to give the sun kissed look! But Not all this is required or appropriate at all the times. Sometimes, we need to keep it low, like, say for catching a movie with friends or a coffee date. To those occasions, let us all learn how to nail the no makeup look.

1. Start with a clean base

And here base isn’t foundation. We’re talking about skin. When your skin is healthy, it shows and that will cut off another layer of foundation/powder. Therefore, always take good care of your skin. Always exfoliate well. Follow the CTM (Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize) routine well. Use natural products and home remedies to soothe and nourish your skin. You don’t have to rely on makeup much if you have good skin. Eat well, mainly citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruits. Drink loads of water, this will flush out toxins out of the body. This will make you shine from the inside.

clear-skin-for-no-makeup-look2. Everything nude

We all love that blood red lipstick and that blue glitter eye shadow. But, that doesn’t look like you have no makeup on. And definitely not natural. So save that stuff for further use but for now, stick with all things nude. Once you cleaned your skin properly, pat it dry and apply primer. Apply concealer (Tip : always get the concealer a shade lighter, it will ensure to cover up the dark circles well) and blend it, set it with foundation and apply some powder. Once you’re satisfied with the foundation, go for the remaining makeup.



3. Choose the right foundation

This is such a task! I mean, finding the right shade is such a hassle,and then finding the right type in the right shade? Phew! To get the perfect no-makeup look, see what type of skin you have first. If you have a dry skin, choose a cream based foundation and if you have oily skin, we’d recommend you take a semi-matte one. It’s better to avoid matte here because it is going to give away. However, the dewy skin finish will blend into the skin well and won’t look mattified or cakey. Also, just dust some setting powder lightly over your skin, just to set the foundation and make it last longer.


4. Eyes and Lips

When it comes to eyes, just mascara and nude matte eyeshadow is enough. Choose the right shade of the eyeshadow, go with the one that is near to the color of the skin around your eyes. A shade lighter or darker is fine too. Curl your eyelashes for that special effect and coat them with mascara. Make sure you don’t have any clumps and avoid over coating your lashes. When it comes to lips, first scrub them well so that there is no dead skin on your lips. Apply a tinted lipbalm,that should be sufficient. But if you need something with more coverage, take a lip liner that is a shade darker, line your lips before applying a light pinkish shade and blend well. The darker shade will cancel out the pink and will give an amazing natural color overall. And now, you’re done! Slay, homegirl.

Here Are The Multiple Uses Of An Eye Shadow

  1. Use it as a Blush

We all have pinks and peaches on our eyeshadow palettes, don’t we? So now what if we say, we can not only use them for the date night eye makeup but also as a blush? Yeah! Be it powdery or creamy, it serves the purpose of blush just well. Take some on the brush, work your way upwards from your cheekbones towards your ears. Blend well and you’d look as cute as that pretty doll.

eyeshadow-as-blush2. Make a temporary hair color out of it

Feeling a little experimental? Wanna color your hair something quirky but don’t want to damage your mane? Or get those odd looks at office due to that not-so-work-friendly-hair-color ? get eyeshadow to work. Bring out that bottle green. Or that dashing blue. No worries. If its powdery eyeshadow, grind it well to powder, start it with your way down from the ends and work your way upwards. If it is creamy, mix a little talcum into it to make it easier of the application. Temporary hair color for that club night is ready!
eyeshadow-as-haircolor3. Make a lipstick

Yes!! Take your favorite shade of eyeshadow and mix it with petroleum jelly using a brush and your customized lipstick is ready. Easy peasy lemon squeezy, isn’t it ? You don’t have to even use the whole eyeshadow for this! Even if you do, you can just have it stored in a container. And this will give you your favorite tint on the lips along with hydrating (petroleum jelly, guys!). This will have a nice creamy texture that will stay on your lips for long.

eyeshadow-as-lipstick4. Use it as a highlighter

You don’t have to spend a bomb to get that kickass highlighter! Your face can still shine, if you can just have the right shade of the eyeshadow. Have that beige or the complete nude eyeshadow? That’s it, Belle! Take some, and if you want, you can add up some shimmer to it. Now take a brush, pout a little bit, and with the brush, from the cheekbones, work your way upwards to have that perfect highlighted base and face.

eyeshadow-as-highlighter5. Eyeshadow as corrector

Again, another ohw! use of eyeshadow. Usually, when it comes to eyeliner, we seldom get both the wings same. There would be a mistake on at least one eye. So during those times, don’t redo the whole thing. Just use some, preferably in nude shades, ot the shade of the eyeshadow you’re already wearing. Use a Q tip to cleanly smooth the thing out. You can use vaseline for this but that’s just gonna get messy and a teensy bit oily if you don’t do it the right way.

liner-corrector-with-eyeshadow6. As an eyeliner

Now don’t say “whaaaaaat?” You can use eyeshadow as wet eyeliner. Yep, bless you eye shadow. Use a eyeliner brush, dampen it and use it as you’d use a gel eyeliner. Make sure you don’t have any crumbs or slivers. Use an extra tissue to wipe anything extra to give the flawless finish. Now, put your eyeshadow to use and if you don’t have one already, get it here.
