Best DIY Facial Toner

Taking good care of your skin is the most important thing to do whether it’s day or night, summer or winter. A facial toner is one of the most essential elements in your skincare routine. It helps to restore your skin’s natural pH which is lost mostly after we wash our face with soap. No matter what your skin type is, the toner is a must.

There are a variety of facial toners available online and in stores with various ingredients and sometimes it becomes a bit difficult to choose which one’s good for your skin. So here I bring to you a really easy peasy way to make your own facial toner at home.

Ingredients:

  1. Coconut water
  2. Rose water

These two things are really affordable and are easily available everywhere. You won’t have a difficult time in finding them.

How to make:

  • Take equal parts of coconut water and rose water according to your requirement.
  • Mix both of them and keep it in a bottle.
  • You can also use a spray bottle like I did because it makes it super easy for me to spray the mixture on my face. Store in a cool and dry place (your refrigerator 😉 )
  • Ta-da, Your own facial toner is ready to use.

How to use:

Like I said I find it super easy to apply the toner with a spray bottle, so you just need to take out your home made facial toner and spray it on your face in the morning and in the night before sleeping.

You would feel the difference in a week after using it. May it be any skin type, coconut and rose water are a total go go in my list. The best part – you can store it for 2 to 3 months in your refrigerator. Nope it won’t expire that easy. 😉 And if you love DIY bottles.. you would love to decorate and give a cool and funky name to your toner.

Happy Toning!!

The Everyday Look : Less loud- More Wearable

I have been watching a lot of makeup videos and one common thing about most of them is the bold makeup that can’t be worn everyday!

Well.. I thought about it and tried to come up with a look that wasn’t very loud and at the same time, wearable everywhere, may it be a lunch date, family dinner, an office party or a casual hangout with friends!

It’s winter season and it’s a time when you can wear bright colours and experiment with your look!

So here’s the look I chose to flaunt!

For me eyebrows the life of any type of makeup or no makeup look. Hence, I always make sure that they look good as I am not one of those lucky humans blessed with great brows!

I tried to keep my brows as natural as I could so that it doesn’t look too much for an ‘everyday look’.

I have dry skin so I always put a lot of lotion before applying makeup on my face.

The second step is to apply a primer on your face. I used MAC’s mattifying primer here because I feel like it’s really light and leaves your skin feeling really soft.

The third step: Apply foundation and make sure it suits your skin tone. Don’t go way too lighter than your skin tone or too darker for it. I’m sure you dont wanna look like your head belongs to someone else 😜

Eyes! Do your eyes girl! I chose a light brownish and a purple color from my eye shadow palate! I chose these because I was confortable with these, you can use the same or anyone you like maybe pink or blue or red or something.

I chose light brown for the crease of my eye and purple for the inner lid and the outer lid as well. Put on your mascara and or if you like you can put on the lashes too! I didn’t feel like applying extra lashes because I wanted to keep it more simple. The eyes are done ✅

The fourth step for the face: apply concealer on under the eyes and I also like it on my nose a little bit. It’s always great if your concealer is lighter that your foundation. Here I used my MAC BB cream instead of a full coverage concealer because it was lighter! Blend it all in and you’re good to go!

On the cheeks, instead of a bronzer I just used a peach blush and I didn’t feel like contouring my whole face so i just contoured my nose with a contouring stick and on my upper cheeks applied a little shine (oh I love it). I used MAC’s powder shiner/ shimmer because I feel like it’s wearable everywhere and it stays for the whole day.

Oh my second best thing to do-coloring my lips. I used Huda matte liquid lipstick ‘Trophy Wife’ which is  now available on nykaa, and then applied a pinch of light brownish eyeshadow to it.

So this is all it! This is my everyday wearable look at any event! What’s yours? Comment below, mail me, let me know About your everyday look and most importantly shine throughout life!

Fabindia: DE-PIGMENTATION CREAM Review

I love winters but there is a dislike in me for this weather because it makes my skin really dry and non-glowy. Few days back my skin started developing some kind of pigmentation/marks. Well all thanks to my pimples (that’s where the marks came from), now you know!

IMG20171230202227

Viola! I saw this fabindia de-pigmentation cream in one of the stores and well, you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do!  Not that I had used this type of cream earlier. So I started using this twice a day i.e., in the morning and before going to bed in the night after washing my face with lukewarm water.

LRM_EXPORT_20171230_210306

Within a week this showed really good results on my face. The pimple marks on my face reduced to almost 70-80% and I am still using it. fabindia’s got really good and skin friendly products plus this cream is for all skin types.

A no filter before and after (the best I could do).

This product contains vitamin E which is really good for all skin types.  It evens your skin tone and reduces the blemishes if any. The best part about it is that it doesn’t contain any bleach, which according to me is really good because bleach makes my skin more prone to pimples.

The MRP on the box is Rs. 490 which is well,  not bad for the pocket! And if there is a discount, gosh you’re lucky (I didn’t get any).

Don’t forget to drink lots of water! Keep glowing and stay blemish free!

Happy winters! !

Ma Earth Botanicals Hydrating Cream: Review

Hey, stunners! Hope you all are doing well and taking good care of your skin. Like many, I have a really dry skin and there comes a time when I can’t really go out without a cream which keeps me super hydrated. The only thing I hate about winters is the white “oh-so-beautiful” snow that grows naturally on your skin (I hate dryness). 

So earlier this week I added a new member to my sling bag, Ma Earth Botanicals Hydrating Cream. This cream is everything you will be needing this winter and I have already started using it because as I mentioned earlier, my skin is super duper dry. 

20170905_124802

On a scale of 10, I would give this product 7 as it is not meant to be used in the summers. I used this for summers and I had pimples all over my face. Perhaps it is different for every skin type. 

Apart from that, you cannot deny that the best way to keep your skin hydrated is still our medieval remedy.. that is drinking a lot of water. In case you forget drinking water (like me), set an alarm on your phone so that you remember. 

Keep yourself well hydrated plus use Ma Earth Botanicals Hydrating Cream for healthier and dryness free skin. 

Keep stunning. ❤
