Everyday Flawless Makeup Workshop

Hey Folks,

I am Neha Bajaj, a Human Resource professional, social enthusiast, and a woman of color. I firmly believe that being genuinely happy begins with self-love.

I can’t remember exactly when I discovered makeup, but one thing I know is that I have loved it ever since. What started as a simple fascination turned into an obsession. I used to put makeup on because I wanted to hide my flaws but eventually, I learned to love it because it makes me feel good about myself.

I learned basic makeup skills through Youtube but realized that I can never fully learn everything just by watching it on a screen. I never really thought of going to a workshop until I came across this page on facebook by Salonkhoj. I’m so happy that Salonkhoj and Makeup artist Bhavika Saluja came up with the “Everyday Flawless Makeup Workshop”. It was an amazing workshop experience.

This was a personal makeup workshop which focused on self-learning i.e, demo & practice. It was held at 3D restro Lounge, Malviya Nagar. The location and set up was perfect for the 6 hours – 3 hours tutorial and 3 hours practicing session. The workshop’s goal was to teach us everyday makeup for work or when hanging out with friends etc.,

Foundation Application


First is proper foundation application. I honestly think that this was the most important part of the workshop because a lot of people don’t take their time to understand what’s the right shade and how to apply and cover up things that they want to hide. It takes time to put on foundation and blending it properly.

Contouring & Highlighting:

Every face is different, which means the method can vary with each application. To help learn this, Bhavikaa taught this depending on different face shapes. One important tip she gave when contouring the nose is to connect the shadow to your eyebrows to make it look more natural.

Smokey Eyes

This was the part I was most excited about because I love to put on an eyeshadow! Since I’m learning, I can’t say that I completely know how to do it. Here, Bhavikaa went for neutrals and used a contour powder as an eyeshadow which was nice as she was also telling us ways to save money and that we can use products for multiple purposes as well.

To our surprise, we were served with delicious lunch which was arranged by 3D Restro Lounge just after the demo session got over.

Then we practiced for the next three hours during which some of us also had queries with Bhavikaa. She guided during practice session too.

At the end of the workshop, we were given exclusive giveaway gifts by Bhavikaa and Shefali and a Short and Curly salon’s voucher of Rs. 1000.

Overall, I absolutely loved the workshop.

It was an amazing experience. We were a select group of 10 girls so it was a bit intimate which made it even easier for us to talk, ask questions and to clearly see the makeup demo. I have learned a lot of new tips to enhance my daily makeover routine. I also appreciate the team behind the scene – especially Mohit and his co-photographer – they were very kind to everyone at the event. Personally, the event was a success. It was the first of its kind DIY makeup workshop in Pink City.

I really want to thank Salonkhoj as it is a help to a lot of people who want to discover good salons at an affordable price in Jaipur. For people like me who do not like to hassle for a good salon or for sessions like this, Salonkhoj is the best idea to log in. Thank you Bhavikaa and Salonkhoj for the best workshop ever!

 

The benefits of soy milk for skin and hair

Soy milk is considered to be the healthiest options when it comes to your overall well-being. A great alternative for those who are lactose intolerant and vegan; it is a rich source of protein which is necessary for glowy-dewey skin and shiny, luscious locks of hair.

HAIR

Strengthening the Hair Shaft
According to “Marie Claire” magazine, protein is an essential element for strengthening the hair shaft. When you use products that contain protein, the product binds itself to the hair strands, forming a protective layer. This guards the hair during styling, reducing the likelihood that it will shed or break. Hair products are helpful tools to treat hair from the outside in. Consuming beneficial sources of protein like soy milk provides internal support to help hair grow out healthier and stronger.

Plus, it treats split ends!
Being so opulently rich in protein rich makes it an absolutely fabulous conditioner. Win! Apply it your ends of your tresses after washing your hair to treat those dreaded split-ends.

Adding Moisture
Protein helps to keep hair shiny and healthy looking. This shininess stems from a healthy level of moisture. If you are dehydrated or your diet lacks protein, it will be reflected in the appearance of your hair. Drinking soy milk not only provides your hair with protein, it also supports your hydration levels.

SKIN

Fresh soy face
With a surge of Vitamin E, soy milk helps renew dead skin cells and moisturises the skin. To truly reap its benefits, give yourself a soy facial by leaving it on your face and neck area for 20 minutes. Do this thrice a week for unbeatable results.
Tightening Loose Skin
Protein can also help keep your skin tissues firm. Continued cleansing and moisturizing is beneficial but can cause some wear and tear. The protein provided by soy milk keeps skin tissues moisturized and increases their elasticity.

Anti-Aging Agent
Generally, soy milk is necessary to raise collagen levels in your body. After females hit menopause, it has been noted that collagen, a protein which is naturally produced in your epidermis, is decreased in terms of production. Since collagen is responsible for leaving the skin firm and keeping the skin’s elasticity, females dwell into supplementing and complementing the deficient production levels of naturally produced collagen through the creams.

Indian Celebrities And Their Favourite Hairstyles

We all love our celebrities, don’t we? The gorgeous faces, the lovely bodies and the glamorous hair. If I could trade one thing with all the beauties of Bollywood, it would be their long, silky manes.

Priya Prakash Varrier

Malayalam actress Priya Prakash Varrier created ripples in all walks of life with the sensational wink that shot her to fame overnight.How gorgeous is this girl? Long and silky tresses that steal heart. She is always flaunting those gorgeous locks in different ways – waves, poker straight, and bed hair? You ask it, she’s got it!

Malaika Arora Khan

Being one of the hottest yummy mummies of the glamour world, I think Mrs. Khan rocks the long locks like a charmer. It suits her pretty face and the gracious body. If I could vouch for one hot mommy, it would definitely be Malaika and her hair

Kangna Ranaut

Beautiful Kangna Ranaut abandoned her natural “wild mop” and went for a smoother and pulled back look for a while, but recently she was spotted with the mop again! The “Pulled-back” look, however, also suits her equally.

Aishwarya Rai

Whether it’s loose curls, straight hairstyles or side-swept bangs, everything looks great on former Miss India and now Mrs. Bachchan, Aishwraya Rai. She can carry contemporary as well as traditional hairdos with super ease.

Jacqueline Fernandez

This Sri Lankan beauty has such voluminous hair; I wonder how she manages it. It’s thick, lustrous and full of life. It also suits her curvaceous body very well, what do you think?

How to remove wrinkles: Food that makes you look good

Sound too good to be true? Try including some of the following wrinkle-fighting foods in your diet today and see your skin improve right before your eyes.

Fruits and Vegetables High in Carotenoids

The pigment which is responsible for rendering the yellow and red colour to green in vegetables and fruits is known as Carotenoids. Consuming carotenoids helps in achieving wrinkle free and healthy skin. Each organic and locally produced fruits and vegetables such as plums, carrots, mangoes, spinach and kale contain it.

Fight wrinkles with potassium-rich foods

Add avocado to your smoothie for youthful skin. To support your body in its ability to renew skin cells, blood must be slightly alkaline. One of the key ingredients to promote this, is potassium. Include enough potassium in your diet and your skin will be much better at renewing old and tired-looking cells. Eat the following potassium-rich foods for a youthful-looking complexion:
  • Squash
  • Avocados
  • Bananas
  • Mushrooms

Amino acids

Another cause of wrinkles is the weakening of collagen and elastin in the skin that happens as we age. Amino acids found in protein sources can help rebuild and repair damage. Meat, fish, eggs, tofu, some grains, nuts, and seeds are all excellent sources.

If you have course, curly hair, one of the biggest problems that you’ve run into, probably, is experiencing curling after you’ve straightened. There is nothing quite as frustrating as finishing your hair care routine, only to see your hair to start curling upward right after you straighten it. Don’t worry, you’re not the first person to fight with a hair straightener, and you certainly won’t be the last. We’re going to go over a few ways that you can ensure your hair remains straight, and that you won’t have to worry about that curl sneaking back in on your night out.

LOCK IN MOISTURE WITH CONDITIONER

Dry hair, especially curly hair, needs lots of moisture. This is because curly hair tends to be on the drier end of the spectrum compared to straight hair. If you have curly hair or textured hair, moisturizing is the key to preventing frizz when it’s humid.

 

AVOID USING A TOWEL FOR DRYING

If you’ve read our blog at all, then this is something that you’ve heard us say before: don’t ruffle your cuticle with a towel. Hair cuticles have a lot of ridges, and when you rub with a towel, you open them, causing frizz. Instead of going that route, try squeezing the water out of your hair as much as possible. If you can, try purchasing a microfiber towel, or use an old t-shirt to absorb the excess water. Never, ever rub your hair after a shower.

 

USE AN ANTI_FRIZZ HAIRSPRAY.

Using an anti-frizz hair spray may help to lock in moisture and prevent frizz. Spray some on your hair after you have finished styling it.

 

KEEP THE HAIR DRY

To cut down on frizz, we strongly recommend that you allow your hair to air dry a bit after a shower, rather than hitting it with the blow dryer as soon as you step out of the shower. Allowing to dry naturally will keep it in place, whereas a blow dryer can cause frizziness. Also remember that it can make your hair appear to look puffy, which isn’t the look that you’re going for. That said, let it dry naturally, at least partway, and then use the blow dryer.

This winters, let love your hair

Winter is  already at our doorstep! So, what are you waiting for – thank the stars for finally stopping all the heat damage that your hair was going through! It is also time to start planning a hair care routine that is fit for winter. During these jack frost months, cold outdoor weather combined with dry indoor heat can wreak havoc on your strands, leading to split ends and breakage. To help you sparkle this season, we bring you few precautions that will keep your locks silky and lustrous.

Control Frizz

One of the most annoying things about winter is all of the static. The hoodies, sweater, gloves, and beanies all seem to gang up on your hair, making it a static, frizzy mess. To tackle this, use a vented hair brush that has a combination of plastic and boar bristles while combing your hair. Wash your hair only with lukewarm water, not hot water, as the latter will strip away the natural oils that protect and nourish your hair. Apply a leave-in conditioner to keep your hair smooth.

blow dry: do it right

During the winter months we tend to use heated appliances more. Too much heat on the hair can cause further moisture loss, so by adding a little extra effort into your blow dry, this will cut down the amount of times you will apply heat to your hair.

medicated shampoo

If you find that your hair is extremely flaky, we would recommend that you buy a medicated shampoo containing salicylic acid. After putting in the shampoo, stimulate the scalp by massaging lightly with a brush. This will increase blood circulation and help to keep a flaky scalp at bay.

warm oil to moisturise your scalp and hair

There are hot-oil products on the market but you can also use olive oil. Warm it slightly and massage into your scalp and hair. Leave it on your hair for one to two hours and then shampoo out. Don’t worry if you don’t get every bit of the oil out of your scalp; it will continue to moisturise and condition your hair and scalp.

Shine And Bounce

The lack of moisture in winter not only dries out your scalp and makes your hair frizzy, but also leaves your hair looking dull and lifeless. Brush or comb out your hair with a wide-toothed wooden comb to remove tangles and apply raw honey to the length of your hair from the roots to the tips. Cover up your hair with a shower cap or towel and leave it on for about 30 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water. Honey is a humectant that seals in the moisture and helps restore shine and bounce to dull and damaged hair.

Hairstyle Trends For This Fall

With the fall coming, let the latest crop of celebrity hair-cuts and styles inspire your own autumnal trim or perhaps a full-on chop! Like for all our beauty and fashion woes, our best solution is always to turn to Bollywood. Because who better than our favorite actresses to take inspiration from on the latest hair trends?

So, here are some of the biggest hair trends we’ve seen recently on Bollywood celebrity Instagrams, and we’re dying to try them.

All That’s Curly

Hairstyle-trends

No matter what your hair length, embrace your natural hair texture or get your hands on a curler because pretty much everyone in Bollywood already has. Who doesn’t love carefree, loose curls? Take it up a notch by making a deep part and pinning the underneath to one side, giving it an old Hollywood glamour look. This hairstyle pairs well with an Indian or western outfit, making it a great stress-free option.

Sleek Slicked Back

This sophisticated look is one of this season’s most worn celebrity hairstyles for formal events. It’s a clean, sleek style that works with any formal attire. Switch it up by changing the part, and always remember to tuck it behind your ears for a fresh take. It’s perfect paired with statement jewellery, so wear it with a chunky necklace or extra large hoops.

Hun Buns

The perfect, no-fuss hairstyle comes in handy when you’re in a hurry, the half-up bun or the hun bun looks amazing, is super easy, and crazy popular with celebrities as well.

Twisted

Worn most commonly in an updo, twists have long been a classic hairstyle for formal events, but try a modern take by keeping your hair down. Go for one large twist on one side or multiple small twists for a contemporary and youthful feel.

The High Pony

Slick your hair up. All the way up. Done in rumpled texture or stick-straight, the high ponytail adds both an elegance and ease to every ensemble. Bonus: the tighter you secure it, the more lifted your face looks (but maybe pop an Advil or two first).

Now the next time you head out for or visit your stylist, don’t forget to show her your favorite Bollywood inspiration to go by, get the look and rock that outing!
