2 Easy Hairstyles for Medium-length Hair

 

Hi everyone! Today I’ll be sharing 2 super easy hairstyles for medium-length hair. These are quick to create but still look like you’ve put some effort in! I’ve used BBLUNT products which make styling your hair at home super easy, as they are designed especially for Indian hair and weather.

Look 1

The first look is Braided style for beginners which looks really pretty with open hair as well as ponytails.

  • I shampooed my hair using the BBLUNT Perfect Balance Shampoo and followed it up with the BBLUNT Perfect Balance Conditioner. This restores the moisture balance and re-energises dull hair.
  • I then used the BBLUNT Blown Away Volumizing Leave-in Spray on my damp hair. This is meant to be used on the roots and it helps in adding volume and bounce to the hair.
  • I then quickly dried my hair using a blow-dryer. You can do a salon style blow-dry, section by section, to get amazing volume and smooth hair. Or do a quick dry like I did to retain some natural wave and bounce in your hair, but with added volume due to the spray used in the previous step.
  • Next, I did my usual left side-parting and picked up a section of hair as shown. I split these 3 sections and proceeded to create a braid. Every time I crossed the front section under the middle section, I added a few new strands to the front section. This will create a slightly different look as compared to a plain braid.

Christmas Gifts from Innisfree India

 

Hi everyone! Korean skin care brand Innisfree, is now available online at Nykaa.com and the brand team sent me this lovely Christmas gift set. I received a hand cream set along with a capsule collection of their face masks. These can be purchased individually online. The hand creams retail for Rs 300 whereas the capsule masks (10 ml quantity) are priced at Rs 150 each. I haven’t had a chance to try the masks yet but I tried the hand creams and really liked them. They’re very moisturizing and smell pretty nice too. The peach variant is my favorite so far, I absolutely love the juicy, sweet fruity scent! The limited edition Christmas packaging looks really cute too.

3 Party Looks for Indian skin | Video Tutorial

 

Hi everyone! As the year comes to an end, holiday season parties are on everyone’s mind. I’ve been really into doing party makeup looks these past few weeks and here are 3 of my most recent videos for some party makeup inspiration. I love a red lip as it instantly brightens and lifts the whole face. To give a little party spin to a classic red lip-winged liner combination, I added a thin silver liner with the black. This look is really striking, definitely party-worthy and quite easy to do. You don’t need any eye shadows for this look! I used my favorite red lipstick – MAC Ruby Woo for this look. If you haven’t been keeping up with the news, MAC is now available at Nykaa.com 🙂

Red Lips or smokey eyes may not be everyone’s cup of tea. For fans of a nude look, I did a soft gold party look last week which pairs a soft brown lip with a gold eye. To add a little festive spin to it, I used a gold pigment over the eyes, with a soft cut crease. Winged liner always looks pretty and I made sure to use a generous bit of highlighter on the cheekbones for a golden glow.

For those who love the drama of a black smokey eye, this sparkly smokey eye look would be perfect! I generally don’t do black smokey eyes as they can be difficult to pull off but I loved how the silver pigment added some sparkle and shine to a flat smokey eye. To keep the focus on the eyes, I used a neutral blush and warm nude lip.
