Kalki Koechlin is a vibrant and awesome woman. From her talent to her hair, to her height and her skin, we envy it all. Recently she took to Instagram with a new crop ‘do, and let’s just say, it’s the hottest haircut of 2018! Wearing a bright red coloured tee with denims and matching sneakers, Kalki gave us a modelesque pose while showing off her new shorter and cooler hairstyle.

Dhadak hasn’t released yet, but Janhvi Kapoor has already been making waves! The beautiful debutante has been out and about promoting her new film, and we’ve been crushing on all her looks. However, we’ve realised that there’s one common theme in each of them – flushed cheeks and dewy skin! Don’t believe us? Scroll down to see the proof.
1. When She Nailed The Cat-Eye
The actress paired her crisp, winged liner perfectly with a hint of blush and glow. The soft, pink lipstick was just the cherry on top.
If you’ve been experiencing a sudden burst of pimples on your face, even though you’ve moisturised, eaten healthy and done everything right, don’t get dejected just yet. There could be a bunch of other bad habits that may be the cause and you never even realised. Check them out…
1. Applying SPF just once
We all know that applying sunscreen before leaving the house is a must. But do you also know that it’s important to re apply it every few hours, especially if you’re out in the sun.
2. DIY-ing without research
At-home remedies are fun and easy. But what some may not realise is that people have different skin types, and that some ingredients in the DIY may not suit the person which could lead to a chemical reaction and turn out to be disastrous.
3. Picking at your pimples
Pimples are a horrible phenomena. But touching and picking that them maybe not be the best option for you. Bacteria can tend to rest on our hands most of the time, especially if you’re out of the house a lot. So try and keep those fingers away and wash your face regularly.
4. Over cleansing/exfoliating your face
Cleansing and exfoliating your skin is a good practice to follow. But when your over-do it, it could lead to tearing of the top layer of your skin, making it more sensitive and delicate.
5. Sleeping with your makeup on
Say hello to the worst of the lot! Not removing your makeup before you get into bed can be one of the most damaging things you can do to your skin. The chemicals and ingredients in the products can can clog your pores, which can lead to bacteria and acne build up.
6. Showering with super hot water
Takin a shower with pipping hot water can be a little too harsh for your skin. It can make your skin feel dry and sensitive. So try and keep the steamy showers to a minimum.
7. Not getting enough Zzzz
We all know that getting upto a minimum of 8 hours of sleep is necessary for our minds, energy levels, metabolism and mood. But it’s also super essential for the health of our skin. When our skin is devoid of sleep it becomes pale and washed out.
Come rain or shine, weddings in India will never stop! However, the weather can really mess with a girl’s makeup… unless she’s armed with the right products. Here are a few must-have items that you need in your kit this wedding season.
1. Mattifying Primer
No matter what your skin type is, chances are that the humidity will make your face shine – and not in a good way! If your complexion is on the oilier end, apply a mattifying primer all over your face. Those with dry-to-normal skin can use a small amount on their T-zones.
2. Lightweight Foundation
Who has time to deal with clumpy, caked up foundation? Skip the powder formulas and opt for a weightless, water-based foundation to get the coverage you need.
3. Budge-Proof Eye Shadow
We hate it when our perfectly crafted eye shadow smudges. To ensure that your work stays put, go for shadow sticks. These formulas are creamy enough to blend in, but once they set, they won’t move for hours.
4. Waterproof Liner (And Mascara)
Whether you get caught in an unexpected shower or cry at a friend’s wedding, waterproof products will stop your eye makeup from running. If you hate the crunchy feeling of waterproof mascara, you can layer a coat of regular mascara underneath first.
5. Lip Gloss
Matte lipsticks look stunning, but can feel chalky and drying in this weather. Opt for lip glosses or glazes to get a little colour.
We hope this guide will help you out this season! If you want to go the extra mile, here are some handy skincare tips to follow during the rains.
A blow dryer is one of those necessary and highly used tools in your hair vanity. And just like with any beauty tool and product out there, it can have many uses… A flat iron can get you beautiful curls, a powder highlighter can be used as an eyeshadow and your blowdryer can’t really change your hair, but it can benefit you with your other beauty-related problems!
1. Speed Up Your Mani
Doing your nails at home doesn’t have to be a task because let’s face it, the drying process can take a while! And since you don’t have an eternity to spend over your nails, you do however have your blow dryer! So to get your mani done quickly, take your blow dryer on a cool setting and go over over your nails.
2. Maximise Your Lashes
Sometimes to cash in extra use of your eyelash curler, just heat it! So when you curl the lashes, it will give them the ultimate lash lift. P.S: Make sure to be a little cautious before you place anything too hot near your eye.
3. Dry Your DIY Nose Strip
At-home diys are super fun. But the non-fun part is waiting for the or diy whip to dry just so you can have that satisfactory peel-off. Right? If you’ve ever done a blackhead removal nose strip, you know that the drying process can take a while… So instead just take your trusted blow dryer on cool setting and wave it around your nose for a quick dry!

When it comes to cross-stitch designs, our minds immediately go to our grandmothers and their pretty creations. But tattoos? As it turns out, people have actually been inking themselves with such designs and the looks have been surprisingly beautiful!
Started by tattoo artist, Eva Krbdk, this trend incorporates this timeless embroidery style into tattoos. Since the method involves intricate, geometric patterns, it actually calls for a lot of hard work and precision. Plus, there are usually a variety of colours used which make the process a lot longer.
Whilst the most popular requests are for flowers and fruits, there have been some peculiar designs as well. In the animal category, people have chosen pandas, dinosaurs and even Kermit the Frog! Tattoos of cross-stitched cars are also one of her offerings.

Recently, there’s been a big change in the makeup industry… and it’s been a good one! After Rihanna launched Fenty Beauty’s iconic foundation in 40 inclusive shades, several brands have followed suit. From Tarte to Dior, we’ve seen formulations in the widest colour spectrum till date. The latest one to join the club? Lush!
That’s right. The brand, who is famous for their colourful bath bombs, decadent lotions and invigorating scrubs, has launched a range of solid foundations called Slap Stick. Available in 40 shades, these foundations actually take undertones into consideration. Which means that everyone will find a perfect match!
What sets these foundations apart from others, is the 100% vegan and cruelty-free formula. The products are filled with nourishing ingredients like jojoba oil, coconut oil and argan oil. Each shade promises medium, buildable coverage and a dewy finish. You can use your fingers or a brush to blend in the pigment.
The packaging is completely in line with Lush’s branding. Unlike other solid foundations, this one does not come in a stick format. Instead, the egg-shaped product is dipped in peelable wax to maintain its integrity. You also get a recyclable, cardboard container to store it in.

Unfortunately, the foundations are only available in the United Kingdom till date. However, we’re keeping our fingers crossed that they will expand their offerings to India too! In the mean time, here are a few tips to keep in mind before buying foundation.
If you woke up today with the sound of pitter-patter outside your window, you know that it won’t be long before it comes down hard. Mumbai city’s monsoon isn’t something to be taken lightly. When it rains, it pours. And when it pours it floods. And when it floods it usually leaves the activities we planned for that day suspended in limbo. Because what do you? Get drenched in the rain? Work from home only to have the bed call out your name multiple times? Yeah… The gloom is real, people.
So, in light of this, and ever other dreary day, we’re turning to IG’s brightest, cutest and prettiest feeds to help us feel awakened…
