Make-up Tricks for Fall!

When Fall is about to arrive, certain glumness is natural. The harsh winds that summers left with them continue, however they are not so dreaded anymore thanks to the impending winters. Fall is a season of combinations. It is when you can afford to experiment the most when it comes to your make-up!

The layer of make-up would only come out impeccably once the base is strong enough. Make sure your skin is rid of the dead cells, damage and coarseness that it faced during the sweltering weather it had to face a short while ago. Use a good scrub to remove the upper most damaged layer.


Thanks to the autumn nip, you are now free to use the foundations you were not allowed to apply thanks to extreme temperatures and humidity. Cream based cleansers and good quality moisturizers are a must for the fall. Plus, you’ll be needing lots of them for the coming cold climes.

While you get to experiment in the Fall, it is also time to find your personal style when it comes to make-up. Whether you’re a fan of super poppy shades or subtle neutrals, the time is right to realize what suits you best, and what you’re most comfortable in pulling off. While the season puts no such restrictions on you, your complexion and confidence could. The make-up is your second skin. You have it carry it off with elan and poise.


Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms are the perfect combination of neutral and bold. The shades are both natural as well as fierce. Plus they will provide nutrition to your lips in the dry Fall. Keep your balms handy in your sack, even if you can’t afford to carry all your make-up with you. For your everyday look, basic kajal and tinted lip balms would work just fine.


Hide your blemishes and pigmentation with the help of foundation that the summer sun gave you, but avoid compact. For this basic make-up haul, you can always trust to offer you some of the best discounts on make-up products. From Maybelline Baby Lips to L’Oreal Matte Morphose pre-make up base, this online shopping websites has its stocks fully loaded!

The perfect reds are perfect for all season. However you can still stay minimalistic with pastel blush-ons. A soft blush with tinted lids but a bold lip would be a good look for your evening get togethers. Try hues like copper and lavender on your lips and eyes with mascara stained eye lashes. These shades bring color with them but do not shout for attention!

Want to try something new and offbeat? How about oxblood lips? Try plum and dark brown shades. In that case, keep every other feature of your face completely make-up free! So for that upcoming bash, your little black dress would find companions in dark lips and an updo hairstyle.


Matte makeup is allowed for the Fall but your skin should not feel dehydrated otherwise your make up would not be able to impart upon your face that much needed glow. You can’t turn back time, but you can always face it with make-up. Welcome Fall!

Supremely Quick Internet 4G

I often find myself cursing the terrible speed of my internet connection. It is ridiculous to keep waiting for the internet to be connected and only to find out later that it is still going to be a painful unbearable wait.

This is why my joy knew no bounds when I heard about the 4G network and how it could bring an end to all my surfing woes. I have a lot of plans regarding how I would use the superfast 4 G network by Airtel in order to serve my purpose.

Video calls

I love seeing people who are not by my side. As I have always loved socializing on the web, I have friends located in almost every continent. It is not possible to travel to each of these countries and hang out with them; however thanks to technology; it is almost possible to see them.

I love video chatting with friends as the pleasure of seeing them live at the very same time gives me a very different kind of thrill. Of course, it leaves a lot more to be desired, but then again, something is better than nothing.

Shopping on the go

There is no such thing as too much shopping, right? I am a hard core shopaholic and I strongly believe that shopping is like a religion and my recovery pill too. Now, 3G isn’t bad for shopping experience but it does take some fun from my shopping experience when I need to wait for the products to load.

This is why with my smart Airtel 4G network, I could shop anywhere on the go. I would look at all those amazing products in the awesome online stores and in the blink of an eye, purchase stuffs to my heart’s content. It is like see, love, shop- whoosh! Voila, life looks so picture perfect, isn’t it?


Now, I am not really the biggest movie buff you will find but it never hurts to enjoy a little extra entertainment. This is why I am going to use my super fast internet speed to download music and movies and maybe a few games too. I love those games where you can challenge people in real time. Internet speed definitely plays a huge role in such games and I would love the lead with the lightning speed of the internet.

These are the top plans which I have in my mind and I aim to make the full use of my 4G network. No doubt, there are a hundred different ways by which I could utilize it too. What do you think would be an apt use of such a whopping speed? I have high expectations from Airtel and its supremely fast network, let me know about your plans and ideas too.

Let the internet take the world by storm! WOOSSSHH!

Makeup tips for the monsoon season

Monsoons in India are a mess and looking good takes a backseat when you have to handle umbrellas and bulky raincoats. It is also the time when humidity rises and your hair’s texture and skin’s oil secretion go haywire. Most make-up artists and stylists suggest a minimalist look. Here are a few tips that you can follow to keep your skin and hair in order even during downpours.

Cleaning the Skin

Keeping your skin clean during monsoons is very important as bacterial action and oil secretion rises around this time. Women with oily T-zones and combination skins are bound to experience a bout of acne. To avoid these problems, it would be best to use herbal astringents to get rid of the excess oil.

You can keep a few wet and dry tissues to keep removing excess oil from the face. Those with dry and normal skin would do well to use ice on their face to remove grime and grease. Before going to bed, use a water based moisturizer from Lakme or L’Oreal. If you have oily skin, its better you use no night cream.

Creating a Makeup Base

Do not use foundation creams as bases for makeup if you don’t want them rolling down your cheeks after a heavy downpour. Instead, use face powder, only sparingly to create a light base. You should use only that much which will absorb the oil from your face.

A light BB cream from MAC can also be used but make sure it dissolves perfectly in your skin.

If you like using blush, go for cream blush which are water proof and add a rosy tint to your face.

Doing up your Eyes

Indian women love wearing kajal but this is unfortunately the season to put them away. Some brands like Faces have introduced water and smudge proof kajal which lasts long and you can try them out. Instead of kajal, you can go for waterproof eyeliner from Maybelline that is likely to last longer than traditional kajal pencils.

You can also add to the beauty of your eyes by thickening the lashes with waterproof mascara. Brands like Revlon produce them with good quality waterproofing that keeps them on for long hours, till you remove them with a cleanser. A touch of pink eye shadow shall also brighten up your look. However, make sure it is only minimal as you don’t want to deal with layers of melting pancakes.


Come sun or rain, using a sunscreen is must because it protects your skin from harmful UV rays. They are available in various SPF ratings which offer different levels of protection. You can use a water based sunscreen from VLCC or Vichy can work wonders on your skin during this time.

For completing your look, wear your hair in a tight ponytail or go short by trying out bobs and pixie cuts. Monsoon months lead to a lot of hair fall and shorter hair shall prevent it. Keep your hair clean by using mild herbal shampoos and conditioners to keep frizz and tangle away.

Old Lanes

Sometimes you just feel so mushy that you wish to lock the feelings before they slip away. It’s been ages since I wrote something but thankfully, life has been a bliss of late. Touchwood, I hope the good is here to stay.

Old days

Those moments

The little smiles

Unspoken words

Emotions inside

So much time

Keeps passing

How scared she was


Of how broken a tomorrow could be

Today, she silently smiles

At the beautiful present

She enjoys!

When the right person

Stands beside

Every wrong bids a goodbye

You don’t really need

A love that spans forever 

Sometimes, it’s little moments

You pick up every day

Those whimsical wishes

Which someone fulfils

Those little habits

Which someone picks

The cute fights

Which someone does

And you look back

And find

You dotted your diary

With hearts and love

A name can be subtly traced

Because every heart tells a tale

Live your love today

Forget about the winds of change

What begins will one day end

Let not the fear 

Wash away

The smile you

Could have worn today!

Draw the hearts

Color them up

Let memories be made

Yet again

So long, so good

Good it will stay

If not, remember; it once

Made you say

I Love The Story I’ve Lived

Some day again

You will finish

The tale, if it stayed incomplete

Rise in Love




fall in love

Oh Honey!

Ever since I was born, I have been blessed with extra layers of baby fat. My mother often jokes that not many people took me in their lap because even at a very young age, I was too heavy to be carried; of course, she tells she is serious and I pretend it’s a joke.

Anyways, being born on the chubbier side, I have grown up with my share of suggestions regarding the diet to follow, the food to eat, the ones to miss, the need to skip food entirely and what not!

Sometimes, I get really irritated when people pop their expert opinions and animatedly tell me, “Hey you should look at the food you eat! Calories are a big thing!”

I feel like telling them to shut their big mouth and mind their own business but mostly I end up depressed and contemplate if crash dieting is the way to go.

However, thanks to my ability to read and write and taking a little liberty, I should add think and understand as well, I soon found the right way to go.

To all those gorgeous women with curves, crash diet takes you nowhere. Trust me, it doesn’t! Your body is a temple and you shouldn’t disrespect it. There are so many ways to staying fit and crash dieting is certainly not the way to go. The better and wiser approach is to choose balanced diet. I stumbled upon the perks of opting for a honey diet by Dabur because honey is a remarkable food which can do wonder to your body. Honey aids in better digestion and is a good sugar substitute as well. It will give you the much-needed energy and helps you stay in shape.

When you are following a balanced diet, you won’t really need to fuss about other things.
Your body needs the right amount of nutrients for the sake of having a healthy growth. If you do not offer them these minerals and nutrients, it will lead to degeneration of the muscles and it can harm the overall growth of your body and its functioning as well.

So, your main aim should be to find a diet which will have the right amount of carbs, proteins, fats, minerals and vitamins. When you are not over indulging and eating it right, you will be able to ensure that your body will be well toned and it is going to help you shed the extra pounds as well.

Dabur’s Honey diet is one of the best way by which you can succeed in accomplishing your goals. So, if you want to live a healthy life, the right thing to do is explore the details of Dabur’s honey diet here and put in a little exercise as well.

Bats, Balls And Date!

Are you a lover of the game? Has it ever occurred to you as to how many times someone you loved ended up ditching your plans at the last moment because a high-voltage India-Pakistan match was being played?
I still remember how terribly frustrated I was when I called up my friend to talk to him about the pitiable state of my life and after blabbering for a long 10 minute all he told me was, “Damn, the Yorker was too good. I truly wish India wins today; it would break my heart to see them lose after such a wonderful streak in the tournament so far.”
I had slammed the phone hard and would have broken it if it was not my beloved shit of technology! I mean here I was, nursing a broken heart and there was my friend going gaga over a Yorker!

Did you ever find yourself feeling frustrated because your best friend ditched you at the last moment because they wanted to see Virat Kohli bat! I mean it’s okay to see the game, but I often wonder if people need to stop all their plans for the sake of the game. As I was looking for what could be a possible solution, I stumbled upon how UC Cricket is the thing to use.

UC browser understood the need for a cricket dedicated segment because India is a cricket crazy nation. When the world cup is on, suddenly the office sees a remarkably low attendance. The turnout at colleges is pretty less because who even misses their favorite players in action. I remember sitting in a class of 5 people because everyone was busy being glued to their TV seats.

So, with UC Cricket, you can now keep tabs on the scores of the game. Not just scores, getting real-time updates is a lot easier too. You can know about the latest events; catch up with the latest news in the field of cricket and do a lot more. I called my friend to tell about this. He told that now, he can help me heal my ever incessantly breaking heart and still romance his never ending love for cricket.

I have been so excited ever since I heard of it that I have been calling all my cricket crazy friends and letting them know that they can now still keep their plans and enjoy the game to the fullest as well.

This is an amazing opportunity and I am so excited about it. The next time there is a game going on, I will drag my friends to our hangout zones and give them the UC Cricket extension to enjoy the game and have my awesome company too. This is seriously one of the best ways to get the best of both the worlds. UC cricket, you’re awesome!

A Perfect Rainbow

He looked up

And Smiled

After ages,

Two hearts would now unite

For times longer than any forever defined

Love needs no legal bond

But, it felt better to know

They could walk hand in hand

And no more fighting the world

Together they said

I do

And then the groom kissed the groom

Happiness clapped

Love was no longer biased

Way to go America

Long live the love stories!

Another rainbow painted the sky

Looks like even the Gods smiled

Finally, humans are getting their shit right!

Yay GAY!

Love never needed a gender, all that matters is the heart. You don’t need to be a gay or a lesbian to celebrate this move. You don’t even need to be an American. I believe, if you love love, you are going to have a real big smile on that face of yours!

The world needs to look up to America! What a way to make June, the month of LOVE <3
