Lips: A nude warm pink Mac makes a perfect compliment to the colours of the outfit.

Base: Create flawless skin with a. glow of radiance injecting a dose of glamour onto the skin. Because the bride's outfit does most of the talking, if’s important to not to do overdo it - instead keep the emphasis on contouring to really bring out the cheekbones.

Drama is the key word here, with inspiration drawn from. Umrao jaan. The- idea here is to match the jewellery and outfit, with golds and browns applied to create the perfect matching shimmery effect necessary for maximum royal impact.

Lips: Gold and peach combine to keep the lips soft and subtle, yet unmistakably regal. Hair: The low bun and side parting peaking out of the dupatta gives the bride an unmistakable elegance.

Late motherhood good for women


trend to late motherhood Researchers have found that women who have babies naturally in their 40s or 50s tend to live longer than other women so do their family members as the same genes prolong lifespan and female fertility.

"If women in your family give birth at older ages, you may well have a chance of living longer than you would otherwise. If you have a female relative who had children after age 45, then there may be some genetic benefit in your family that will enhance your longevity," lead author Ken R. Smith of Utah University said.

For descendants of the Utah and Quebec pioneers studied, "you may be able to look at the ages when your female ancestors gave birth -- rather than just their longevity – in estimating how long you may live," said Smith, whose study is published in 'Journal of Gerontology: Biological Sciences'.

Specifically, the study involved the records of 11,604 Utah men who were born between 1800 and 1869 and who had at least one sister who lived at least to age 50; and the records of 6,206 Quebec men who lived between 1670 and 1750, and had at least one sister who lived to 50 or older.

The study didn't address how much longevity is due to genetics, but Smith says scientists believe genes account for up to 25 per cent of differences in longevity.

Smith says the study focused on the longevity of brothers rather than sisters of late-fertile women because "men's own reproductive history doesn't get in the way of assessing the role of their female relatives' fertility". - HT

Kareena is the best muse a stylist can get


If Kareena’s look in Tashan wasn’t quite glam, the upcoming Kambakkht Ishq will see the actress ooze loads of oomph and style.

kareena kapoor According to designer Aki Narula, it took many months of research to create the right look for Bebo. “While working on Kareena’s international look, I also had to keep in mind the fashion trends and forecasts for summer 2009 since the movie releases around that time. I also made Kareena try all the clothes I picked up for her before shooting started. So, she knew exactly what to wear for different shots,” says Aki.

In Kambakkht Ishq, Kareena will wear a number of short dresses with a great deal of mismatch. “I’ve used colour blocking to create a clean, trendy and ultra-stylish look. In addition, there are 52 pairs of footwear with five-inch heels that Kareena has worn in the movie. There are also bags in colours like yellow and purple,” says Aki.

Ask him how Kareena would score over the other two actresses — Amrita Rao and Denise Richards — who also have glamorous roles in the movie, and Aki says, “With her attitude and screen presence, Kareena will definitely outshine the others. Besides, she’s very glamorous herself and very comfortably carried off the style I created for her. This will be Bollywood’s most stylish film ever,” says Aki. The stylist has worked with Kareena in the past and says she’s a great co-worker. “Kareena is very hard-working and spent 18 hours trying on all her outfits. She gives her stylist a lot of creative freedom and is the best muse anyone can get,” says Aki.

Base: Priming skin with moisturizer is an essential first step before applying concealer and foundation. A flush of pink on the cheeks and Dior highlighter across cheekbones adds model-like contours to the face.

Allure is the key clement of this look. Lashes are coated with layers of mascara, while of purple and glitter brings the eyelids to life, before black and navy shadows arc smoked across the outer corners to add mat touch of mystery. A stroke of black liquid liner keeps the look polished.

Lips: Neutral lipstick and Lancome Juicy Tubes gloss keep the lips subtle but lip-smackingly gorgeous.

Hair: Hair is pulled away from the face in a chic high bun to allow the dupatta to rest effortlessly. - AWI

12 healthy tips on eating habits


Author: Jaspal

  • eating habits We live not upon what we eat, but upon what we digest. – Abernethy
  • Watch your food…. how you feel, how you eat, when you eat, how much you eat :o)
  • Always eat slowly and chew well your food. By doing that you are going to have better taste, better digestion, better appetite, easy and quick feeling of full and satisfaction. More important, you need less food to satisfy your hunger. But if you can’t spend enough time due to any reasons, make sure to eat slow and take your time in having our dinner. It will bring more calmness and peace into your life :o)
  • Don’t injure/ruin your system by over-feeding it. Over-eating on a regular basis will kill you long before your time.
  • Little raw food (except some vegetables & fruit ), half cooked or raw non-vegetarian food, bar-be-que half done, sushi from non-vegetarian foods, and all class of beans, half cooked rice etc. take more time to digest, so remember to chew well these foods.
  • Avoid fried or deep fried, very spicy or hot, very sour, very sweet, very salty food as much as you can on a regular basis. If you can’t avoid due to any reasons, drink more water and breath more during that day.
  • Avoid stale food or left over food as much as you can. If you can’t avoid due to any reasons, drink more water and breath more during that day.
  • Freshly cooked food is always healthier and digested easily and quickly.
  • Avoid anything very cold with very hot food. Keep a little gap or the temperature should be close to each other.
  • Having anything salty with pure form of milk is dangerous and toxic.
  • Always keeps on changing your cooking oil. Sticking to one of the best in the world and very expensive & pure cooking oil is the most dangerous, and unhealthy. Your body shouldn’t immune to only one oil always, otherwise you will be prone to have digestive problems always adapting and adjusting to the food cooked in different oils than yours, especially travelling, partying or eating out. Your body will not be ready to accept the food cooked in different oil other than your brand. Instead my friendly advice is to give yourself always healthy and pleasant surprises by eating different food staying within your limits.
  • Drink water after at least 30-45 minutes or more of having your meals.

Traditional Bridal: For a matt look use Mac foundation in a color very close to the bride’s skin tone, then set with powder. Mac shimmer helps to illuminate the cheekbones while crating contours in the face.

For Eyes: Use metallic red in the inner corners, blending towards the outside of the eyes with a deep green for a smooth finish. A forest green has been used underneath the eyes to emphasize shape and color for this enchanting bridal look.

Lips: Create neutral lips by lining with a Mac tawny brown lip liner then filled with a creamy neutral lipstick. A dense lip-gloss over the top adds volume and sophistication.
Hair: To emphasize the eyes and makeup, simply part on the side and clip off the face – perfect fro the day or night. – AWI

Few basic dos and dont’s of skin care in the parlour


skin careChoose a treatment only after careful skin diagnosis consultation with the expert on call. Discuss centra-indications first.

Check out the steps of the procedure and product ingredients before, not after, however intimidated you may feel. Any cosmetic surgery or injection, if done by untrained and inexperienced practitioners, could prove dangerous and even fatal. It is better to be safe than sorry. Do not be afraid to ask or walk out if in doubt.

What may work for your friend may not necessarily work for you.
Get an allergy or patch test done before you go in for any kind of cosmetic procedure or even facials, exfoliations or scrubs. Mention allergic conditions or medications you are currently under.

Diabetic? Had herpes? On heart medicines? Certain procedures are a no-no. Those allergic to aspirin must avoid applications that contain salicylic acid.

Insist on polythene strips for waxing that cannot be re-used. Better still, insist on disposables and fresh or new laundry for every procedure, including the sheet that you lie on.

Go in for facials or other surface treatment at least a week to ten days before any special occasion. It gives your skin time to settle and glow!

Ayurvedic and natural products cause minimal reactions, but check all the same.

Nothing beats a good regimen of proper diet, exercise and plenty of water.

Health is in your hands. Follow a simple at-home skin care programme of cleansing, steaming, toning and moisturizing once a week for a healthy, radiant look!
