Gone are the days when women had to live conservative lives and follow the norms of the society, irrespective of how restraining and demeaning they were to them. Today’s women are self-dependant, ambitious, and willing to take as many risks as men. For instance, they are playing a ton of online casino games on platforms like LeoVegas and taking up professionals like truck driving both of which are something that society has always associated with males.

The women of today are also keeping pace with technology. On that note, the following are some of best gadgets that every modern girl should have:

Instagram is a great platform to stay in touch with your friends and followers – and many brands have embraced it. Today, the platform with more than 1 billion users (as of last September) has more than 25 million business accounts, from the highest-paid female musicians and singers to many beauty and fashion accounts. The recent changes in the way the service puts updates in front of its users, meaning that they can now interact with their favorite brands in an even more meaningful and personal fashion. Which brands, you might ask? Let’s take a look at the top five luxury fashion brands with the most followers on Instagram today.

Dolce & Gabbana (20.4m)

With 20.4 million followers, Dolce & Gabbana is the fifth most followed fashion brand on Instagram. The Italian brand founded in 1985 by designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana started out with just three shops in Milano, and they only started exporting their products – to the United States and Japan at first – in 1990. Today, their products are among the most sought-after luxury apparel in the world, they have locations in all the major cities, and they set the trend for many – including Instagram users.

Dior (24.9m)

Dior has grown from an ‘haute couture’ label into a brand that covers everything from leather goods to timepieces, fragrance, and skin care products. The brand currently works with influencers like actresses Jennifer Lawrence and Cara Delevingne, has shops all over the world, and has a massive, 24.9 million Instagram following.

Victoria Beckham (25.1m)

Victoria Beckham first made it to the headlines as Posh Spice, a member of the British all-girl band Spice Girls, and later as the wife of football legend David Beckham. She built a reputation on her own, though, as a fashion designer and businesswoman as well – her brand “Victoria Beckham” has become the designer brand of the year in the UK in 2011. And it has a massive Instagram following, too.

Louis Vuitton (31.3m)

With 31.3 million followers at the time of this article, Louis Vuitton is the second most-followed fashion brand today. It is also one of the oldest – it was founded 165 years ago by the designer whose name it wears. It started out as a luggage company and evolved into a major brand selling ready-to-wear, accessories, watches, jewelry, sunglasses, and – of course – bags and luggage. It has more than 400 stores in 50 countries around the world.

Gucci (33.6m)

Gucci is one of the longer-running Italian brands, founded in 1921 by Guccio Gucci. It also holds the questionable honor of being one of the most counterfeited brands in the world, with 280 cases of fake Gucci products being reported in 2018 in the United States alone. While its history was not without controversies, it is still one of the most popular fashion brands today – let its massive Instagram following speak for itself.

Hello everyone! I was recently getting ready in a rush (well, we all do, most of the time), and thought of filming the same for you guys, showing you what all products I use when I have to stick to just 5 products! This also qualifies to be perfect beginner makeup look- just a few products and the results are stunning!

5 product makeup challenge | Ritu Rajput - YouTube

As you can see, the look that I created is very easy, very doable and makes a good impact.

1. Revlon Colorstay concealer: Deep– One of my favorite concealers of all time! Review here. A good concealer covers flaw that need to be covered without giving you a cakey look.

2. Maybelline x Gigi Hadid brow pencil: Dark. Full review here. Defined brows are a must, even if you are going for the no makeup look.

3. Clinique Pop Matte lipstick Rose Pop: Adds a touch of brightness instantly. I’ve used this one product both on the lips and cheeks. If your eyes aren’t too sensitive like mine, you could consider using this on the eye too, but I generally stay wary of doing this.

4. Lakme 9-to-5 Naturale Finishing Powder: My current favorite setting powder. It sets the base beautifully and also adds a healthy glow to the skin. Check out my detailed video here.

5. Benefit Bad Gal Bang mascara: Another favorite product at the moment. It curls and lengthens lashes beautifully, and I like to skip the eyelash curler with this one when I’m feeling way too lazy!

Tool: Sigma F 30 Large Powder brush. I used just 1 brush to help with this look. Most of the work was done by hands.

On my nails: Lakme Absolute Gel Stylist Nail Polish: Deep Taupe

Hope you enjoyed the video! What 5 products would you pick if you were to do this challenge? Let me know in the comments below.

Beauty from within- Skin brightening secrets (Glutathione)

In today’s times, who doesn’t want good skin and a pretty appearance? And while we can always slap on some makeup to cover our blemishes and get even-looking, flawless skin, for most of us, spending lots of time on makeup daily is not something we have the time for. And when it comes to home remedies for flawless, glowing, bright skin, we tend to lose patience after a while because it takes too long to get results with DIY methods. How about I tell you about something which helps you get beautiful and glowing skin from within, within no time, and without any expensive treatments at the salon? Keep reading to know more!

The two pillars of skin brightening are Glutathione and Vitamin C, and when taken together, they can prove to be a powerhouse towards skin brightening.

Glutathione, a combination of cysteine, glycine, and glutamine- three building blocks of protein, are produced in the body naturally, and is also known as the ‘master anti oxidant’ because of it’s effective nature of recycling antioxidants. Glutathione is the key to delaying signs of ageing, supporting immune system, recycles anti-oxidants for re-use and helps brighten skin from within, thanks to it’s anti-oxidant recycling nature. And while glutathione is present in a lot of natural resources too, taking glutathione tablets is the most effective and fastest way to achieve skin brightening results. All you have to do is pop that pill and wait for the results to show up. And the best part? This anti-oxidant is very safe since it does not release any free radicals or toxins which could potentially harm your skin or body.

Vitamin C, on the other hand, boosts skin’s collagen production, giving your skin a firmer, plumper look and an overall smoother, younger appearance. It also helps fight free radicals and damage due to sun exposure, thanks to it’s anti-oxidant properties, hence being an effective anti-ageing product. Vitamin C also helps to increase intracellular stores of Glutathione and works in synergy with Glutathione. Even though Vitamin C can also be consumed in your diet (oranges, lemons, etc.), it is a very convenient thing to pop a pill and get faster results.

When taken together, Glutathione and Vitamin C form a powerful team of products which give you brighter, more youthful skin from within, and without any side effects. A combination, such as GLUTONE 1000 WITH ESCOR Z available online can prove to be very effective towards skin lightening from within. Not only is it a very safe and effective way of brightening the skin, it is also a very tasty way of doing so, thanks to the effervescent, flavored tablets.

It is, of course, also very important to follow a good dietary intake and a good skin care regime in order to achieve the best results for beautiful and healthy skin with any treatment.

Hey girls! I recently bought a few products from Miss Claire, a very popular budget beauty brand with the product range starting from Rs. 60 only. You can see this brand majorly online, and offline too at certain shops but I’ve also seen a lot of fakes around this brand, despite the fact that it is at a very good budget, for reasons unknown. Anyhow, I picked up the products online and here’s what I think of them.

  1. Miss Claire Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Foundation (Skin Beige), Rs. 350: The foundation has a great coverage, especially when applied with a brush. It gives a matte finish and stays put for a long time without creasing, fading or oxidising and I was really happy to have discovered this one at this price! One of the best budget foundations I’ve ever tried!
  2. Miss Claire Pressed Powder (04), Rs. 150: A decent product at the given budget, this one helps set the foundation majorly but doesn’t provide much coverage, unless you are looking for a powder with sheer coverage.
  3. Miss Claire Makeup Palette (9916-04), Rs. 225: My most favorite of the lot, this eyeshadow and blusher palette is very useful, has multiple shades yet is so compact and travel friendly. Best part? The pigmentation is awesome and you are bound to fall in love with it!
  4. Miss Claire One Stroke Kajal Super Black, Rs. 145: I love it when a kajal is matte, deep black and creamy. This one is all of these and more. Also, since it is a retractable pencil, I love the packaging too!
  5. Miss Claire Waterproof mascara, Rs. 225: Not a fan of this one for it’s funky fragrance, but it did a decent job of curling and lengthening the lashes
  6. Miss Claire Miss Claire Waterproof Perfection Lip Color + Lip Gloss (shade 10), Rs. 175: I love the shade and performance of this one, but again the fragrance of the clear gloss can be very off-putting.

Do check out my video below for a detailed review, demo and first impression with all these Miss Claire products! You can shop for these online here.

The year 2019 has started at such quick speed for me! This project #SareeStorieswithRitu has been the closest to my heart the past year, and I’d like it to pick more speed up in 2019. But for now, let’s talk about this classy cotton saree which works for all occassions alike!

I’ve been running after easy to drape sarees in light-weight, breahable fabrics a lot lately, and cotton or cotton blends (cotton mixed with other fibres) has topped the preference list. When you wear a softer cotton (not a stiff one), it drapes on your body easily, it stays put in place without too many pins, you can wear it for long hours without getting tired and look really polished! That’s the beauty of a cotton saree.

Be it a professional setup or a party, or just a small social gathering, a cotton saree is sure to grab attention and get you loads of compliments. The fact that the fabric is eco-friendly too (no synthetics) and that it disintegrates into the soil if it happens to get dumped (ever) makes it even more closer to my heart since you feel that you are doing your bit for the environment. Almost every pattern out there can be done on a cotton saree, and arts such as Madhubani, tie-and-dye, shibori, block printing etc. look especially charming when done on a cotton fabric.

Cotton saree care: Maintaining a cotton saree is also fairly simple. Most of these can be washed and dried at home using a fabric softener. If it’s a stiffer saree, you need to starch it too. I recommend getting cotton sarees ironed by the dry cleaner for a crisp, sharp look. When tucking them away in the storage, make sure you fold them neatly keeping the crease lines in mind, air the sarees and change the folds every 6 months or so, and wrap them separately in muslin fabric or white butter paper since cottons tend to absorb colors from other fabrics and you don’t want to take any such chances.

Here I’m wearing this blended cotton saree from Triveni Ethnics. The beige colored saree with a contrasting red and gold border and pallu makes for a classic combination, one that can be worn any time without too many thoughts.

What are your thoughts about cotton sarees? Do you like wearing them? Or do you mostly skip wearing them? Let us know in the comments below.

Hey girls! I’m back with a foundation test & review of the newly launched in India- Maybelline Superstay Full Coverage Foundation. This foundation has been around for a while but has been recently launched in India, and I couldn’t wait to give it a try.


The Maybelline Superstay foundation comes in a glass bottle with a pump packaging. I love foundations which have a pump packaging, especially those that are slightly runny for ease of usage. The foundation gives a flawless full coverage with a brush and a medium-buildable coverage with a sponge. You can check out my video below for a demo on the application and how things went when I first applied this foundation to my face.

The foundation is available for Rs. 750 for 30mL online here.

Hey guys!

Recently we went down to Sawadhee, a traditional Thai spa in Delhi for a couple spa date and totally loved it! Below are 5 points on why you should check them out too!

  1. The warm, welcoming abience: Usually when you go to a Thai spa in India, you see a loud red-and-gold theme running in the décor but at Sawadhee, the décor is very welcoming with a traditional Thai theme, spread over 6000 sq. ft. area. The interiors are done up very tastefully yet minimalism runs in the décor.

2. The host of traditional thai spa services- Sawadhee spa offers a host of mind, body and wellness services such as body massages(like Deep Tissue, Aroma Therapy, Sports Massage, Traditional Thai, Signature Massages etc.), scrubs and wraps, facial services, hand and foot reflexology, etc. You can also opt for customized spa packages to suit yourself. I really like the option of gifting a spa package to a loved one too, especially a bride/ groom to be. There can be no better gift than a gift of relaxation.

3. They make their own products such as body scrubs, oils etc. which is good to know. When we visited the spa, we were offered to choose from a host of oil and scrub options to suit our preferences and skin types. Of course, the staff also guides you as to which products will be best for your skin type and concerns.

4. The massage/ therapy techniques are very refined- with their highly skilled staff, you get to experience an authentic thai massage right in the comfort of your city. What more could one ask for! Our therapists were very considerate of our preferences such as the amount of pressure to apply to the skin, our pain points etc. and tackled our aches and pains well.

5. Award winning spa- the spa has won numerous awards and accolades in it’s many years of operation, including awards such as ‘best Day Spa’, marking a seal of trust from their customers regarding the excellent, luxurious services at the spa over the years.

You must definitely check out Sawadhee Traditional Thai Spa for your next spa visit. Highly recommended!
