My Diwali Outfit

by Rati on October 22, 2014 · 75 comments


Hi Everyone, :)

This is my Diwali outfit for this year. We could not leave the opportunity of shooting this outfit at Taj Falaknuma Palace. It is a beautiful bright pink and orange lehenga by Priyal Prakash. I wore beautiful earrings from Manish Arora by Amrapali and a ton of bangles. :)

There was a group of 20 ladies from Australia who were visiting Taj Falaknuma Palace. They were sooooo happy and fascinated to see me in this outfit. The manager of their group literally invited both Sanjeev and me to tell them a little about our culture and why we Indian women dress up so elaborately. They took our pictures with them, and spent some good time together. It was just a very memorable evening. :)

I wish you alll a veryy Happy and Safe Diwali. May the year brings a lot of happiness and prosperity in your lives. :)

Loads of love. :)

L’Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain in Pink Resistance Review

Hello IMBBians,

Today, I have another shade from the L’Oreal Wet Shine Stain called Pink Resistance.  It’s an awesome lip product. I just love the L’Oreal Colour Caresse range.  Well, the only con I found in them is that the color doesn’t appear the same on the lips as it’s in the tube.  More details about this product follows :)

Pantene Color Preserve Shine Shampoo and Conditioner

How many of you have found certain products that you would never change to try something else…I am done with my skin but still my hair needs that “IT” shampoo and conditioner. I have tried a couple of shampoos where some gave average results and some ruined my hair. I have had certain bad hair days where I didn’t even feel like going out, the dull and limp look depressed me. Today I would be reviewing one of the shampoos and conditioners from Pantene that’s targeted towards color-treated hair.

Day To Night Soft Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial

Hello IMBBians,

Day To Night Soft Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial

For many of us, a regular struggle is to change a day eye makeup look to night makeup look, especially when time is of the essence. On days where I’m constricted time wise, I skip removing my liner and concealer around my eyes and just apply makeup over it. I use gel liners, removing them can leave behind a dark cast or you need an oil-based remover to completely remove any traces of color which makes the skin oily, requiring a wash and so on and so forth. Point is, I want to save time and energy, so I use this method on such days, eliminating several cleansing steps. The following tutorial can be used with any color scheme, here I used the Urban Decay Naked Palette to do a soft-smokey look that is easy to achieve but still looks like you spent a lot of time getting it done. The trick to achieving such a look is using at least 3 colors of the same family with different levels of intensity. Apply the lightest first, blend it well, then apply the darker over it and repeat till you are happy with the results. Also, the strokes made while blending should be longer for the first color and should keep getting shorter as more colors are applied over it, so that the area the darker color occupies is lesser than the previous lighter color occupies (hope that made sense!). Let’s talk about each step in this look in more detail. [click to continue…]
