While we try our best to reply to you guys on facebook everyday,there are some common queries that keep coming up in my instagram as well.I thought I’d make a post base don your queries because I have too much to tell you but replying on instagram is just too little a space for me.

Also if you readers also have solutions to some of the queries mentioned- like your personal tips etc please do reply in comment below. It’s all about helping each other. 🙂 See ya!

Fatem :Plz mem give me suggestions to which product I use to hide my dark circles.

For under eye circles, the first step is to use a good and nourishing under eye cream. Some suggestions Olay Total Effects Anti-Ageing Eye Cream, AAroma Magic Under Eye Gel. And regarding makeup- always use a peach corrector underneath before applying a concealer. The peach corrector would cancel out any ashiness underneath the eyes and the concealer (same as your skintone color or one shade lighter) would brighten up your under eyes. Corrector is just your concealer with a peachy / orangey undertone. So basically pick up two concealers of the same brand but in different color. Pat with your finger tips and set with powder. 🙂 Some suggestions – Makeup Revolution London Liquid Concealer, NYX Dark Circle Concealer, Maybelline Fit Me Concealer

It is quite common to get breakouts post facial. Facials are a way of detoxifying your skin and post facial a lot of time your skin is detoxifying itself. It’s a way of getting rid of build up in your skin. Go easy on your post facial skincare. Use aloe vera, wear sunscreen etc. Regarding the marks, don’t skip wearing sunscreen even a single day because the sun exposure would only worsen them.

Tejawini: Hello ma’am, I’m a budding blogger and would like to know some tips and tricks for the lights that you use for the photos. Please help me out!!!

I mostly use the natural light as much as I can but I recently invested in a circle light and it’s pretty awesome. That said, I would shoot in a natural light any given day because it helps me catch true colors of my makeup. And since you are just starting up, I would not suggest you to invest in heavy dose equipment right away. Play with natural light and angles to start with and then go with the flow based on your requirements. Also I keep getting asked about the camera I use – We have Canon 5D Mark 3 and that’s what I use the most for blog and makeup photos.

Drink a lot of water, exfoliate your skin and keep moisturised both day and night. Also follow a ritual of doing face masks atleast twice a week.

Deora: Which sunscreen? Can you do a tutorial with sunscreen on because it is really difficult.

Wear a sunscreen before you do makeup and let it sit for a while. Take off any excess with a tissue paper. Then go on with your regular makeup routine. For day to day touchups, you can pick up a compact with has SPF in it. If you are doing evening makeup or going somewhere where you’d take photos, I’d suggest to skip sunscreen and go straight with your makeup. Sunscreen gives the worst flashback in photos so it’s best to avoid when you are doing for a party etc.

Some compacts with SPF Recommendations :
Skin Food Aloe Sun Pact SPF 50 PA+++
Maybelline Whitestay UV Compact

Dhwani : Hi could you please suggest hair routines for dry hair with split ends stating which serums shampoo conditioner and hair masks are helpful.
