PUNE SPECIAL: Femina Believe Is In Pune!


PUNE SPECIAL: #FeminaBelieveInPune

Raise hands if you have heard of finishing schools... Raise hands if you've been to one... Yeah I thought so... In all honestly even I haven't met anyone who has been to a finishing school... But I know of the concept through books and well some movies...

Finishing schools were once very popular where parents sent their daughters to get polished, learn etiquette and get conversant with whatever was deemed polite in the society at that time... And then the feminist movement started, 70s happened and finally the 21st century dawned where girls made great strides in fields that were considered a man's domain... All this was achieved without having to go to a finishing school... Needless to say Finishing Schools as a concept became redundant...

Fast forward to 2015 and I got a call some time back to attend the launch of Femina Believe in Pune. I quickly "googled" (they should add "googled" to the English dictionary btw) and found their website At first it seemed like a Finishing School of sorts where they taught women to do the right kind of makeup, styling, dining etiquette and communication skills... I wasn't impressed...

As luck would have it I fell ill the day of the event and I could not attend it... However, curiosity got the better of me and I went through their website again... And it got me thinking... Was getting trained in etiquette or basic makeup skills such a bad thing? Would it stop me from achieving "greater" goals in my career? I mean I was almost ashamed at my hypocrisy...

On one side I am a techie and on the other I am beauty blogger, living my passion by being surrounded by makeup and also living my dream of being a Software Engineer... Do I not spend hours in front of the mirror mastering the art of applying flawless foundation or finding a foolproof way to wear Red Lipstick? Then what's the harm in formally learning these skills?

If you too are of the same opinion then do check out Femina Believe... Its a great place to learn new things and get in touch with our feminine sides :) Their outlets are currently in 3 cities of Mumbai, Delhi and Pune...

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener 

Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work...

Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

10 Best Loose Powders Available in India

10 Best Loose Powders Available in IndiaISLM Writer: Sanchita

Summer is going to knock on the door soon and we, who are blessed (or cursed) with oily skin, will crawl back to our powders and/or matte foundations to keep the skin oil-free as far as possible. Being oily skinned, I have always found my way back to loose powders even though their packaging is slightly messy. This is because loose or translucent powders are more finely milled than the compact versions and hence gives you an even look rather than a made-up cakey one. Compact has the tendency to look rough under eyes or around the mouth whereas loose powders work excellently. No wonder, oily skin stays matte for longer duration than it does with the compact ones. Mostly, it gives sheer to buildable coverage and sits on the skin like a natural finish look.
