In this week’s video, I’ve done a fresh look that is appropriate for the summer. As requested by so many of you, this is a talk through video instead of a voiceover one and for the first time, I’ve also shown a quick hair-do you can do with this look that is summer friendly. The look is simple and natural with a pop of pink on the lips to add some freshness. This is a no foundation look (I don’t like wearing foundation on hot summer days!) and I’ve shown how you can cover up under eye circles and blemishes with just concealer and loose powder to get an even, matte complexion.
The video is a bit longer than usual since its my first talk through but I hope you find it useful!

As the weather is warming up here in Tokyo, I’m shifting to lighter textures in skincare and Iraya Fruit & Nut Scrub is one of the products I’ve been trying out. This is a gentle, gel based scrub that is perfect for some mild exfoliation in the summers.
A few weeks back I had done a tutorial for one of the looks worn by Deepika Padukone in her new movie Piku and completely forgot to post it on the blog! The look is quite simple and perfect for everyday wear. Ladies who like to highlight their eyes with liner and kajal would like this look! The eyes are simple but bold with thick liner rimming the eyes, the cheeks and lips are earth toned to balance out the look. One of the highlights of this look is the bold brow – I noticed it immediately when I saw the trailer and it adds more power to the look!

Today I am going to talk about some of my favorite face packs for oily and acne prone skin. I’ve had breakout prone, blemished skin for years now and while I’ve been able to take control of it to some extent, it still breaks out incessantly (underlying hormonal issues at play here). I also have a really oily T-zone which makes summers a terrible time for my skin with breakouts, oiliness, dullness and congestion. Face masks are a saviour when it comes to keeping my skin looking clean, smooth, fresh with minimal breakouts and today I’m sharing 5 great face masks that help with that. If you have oily or breakout prone skin or skin that gets congested and just a bit grimy in the summers, you’ll find these recommendations helpful!
I’ve been a long time fan of The Body Shop bath and body care products and while I’ve loved the Strawberry, Olive and Chocomania ranges, I somehow never ended up trying out the Satsuma range until now! Summer is all about fresh, fruity bath products for me and I’ve been loving the Satsuma Body Polish the past couple of weeks.
