My favourite Orange Lipsticks for summer

Enough of berry, pink, neutrals and red lipsticks, now is the time for some bold orange hues. Orange is such a fun color for summer, it can be completed with a bold look or it can be given a perfect naturally sunkissed blushy look. And the most important part is it can suit every skin tone and you can apply everywhere, all the day long, around this summertime.

Here are some of my favorite orange lipsticks that can go with every skin tone. Usually, I choose a soft orange tone for my everyday look and select a bold one for my favorite occasions. From a perfect Sunday brunch look or summer party look to the vacay look, anytime orange lipstick can give you a shiny fresh face in this warmer days.


Maybelline Electric Orange lipsticks in satin are formulated with rich honey nectar that gives a smooth feel to your lip and the color is so pigmented that one swipe of this bright lipstick is enough to make a perfect orangy pout.

COVERGIRL Colorlicious Rich Color Lipstick Sweet Tangerine is infused with shea butter for a creamy feel. This lip color is perfect for a softer makeup look.

e.l.f. Studio Moisturizing Lipstick, Orange Dream. Another bold color and this one is highly pigmented, once you apply, it can stay all day long, no need to retouch. But this can be little dry, so apply lip balm before the lipstick can help your lip to retain the moisture.

Natural Homemade Skin Exfoliation by Priyanka Chopra

A few months back the famous Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra shared her skin home remedies on Vogue. I watched it on YouTube, the video got viral since it has been published. In this video, Priyanka shared her traditional homemade DIY body exfoliate pack, lip scrub, and scalp treatment remedies. The ingredients she used are all natural and quite staple in the Indian households and the body pack is also very popular across generations. If you have the time and the right ingredients at hand, then once a week of this pack will definitely take care of your skin in this hot summer days. I tried to follow Priyanka’s instructions and made this pack at home and then applied it to my skin. ( But before you use it on your skin, just make sure to do the allergy test by putting it on back of your palm, don’t use it if your skin got irritated). It can use as a great anti-tan mask for your face. This mask has all the natural ingredients which are very safe for any type of skin, it can use as a hydrating mask also. I will demonstrate the difference before and after using this pack in my hand. But first, the steps, how to make this amazing pack:

(All the ingredients are easily available in any Indian grocery store.) Here I took little less than 1/3 rd cup of chickpea flour(Besan), 1/4th cup of plain yogurt, 2 tablespoon milk, 1 tablespoon sandalwood powder(exotic ingredient from India), a little bit of lemon juice and 1/4th teaspoon turmeric powder. Then I mixed all the ingredients until it looked like a smooth mask. I apply it on my skin and let it dry for 10-12 minutes, then I rubbed it nicely and you can see it works as a great exploitation while massaging with your fingers and then use a wet cotton cloth to clean it and voila you can see the instant difference.

The skin will look smoother and more hydrated and because of the turmeric, your skin will look fresher than before. But excessive use of turmeric can make your skin a bit yellowish, so be careful about the quantity. Hope you will try it and let me know how you feel about this mask.

Prism Eyeshadow Palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills- Product Review

I recently bought this wonderful eyeshadow palette from Sephora, Prism by Anastasia Beverly Hills. This is my second palette from ABH, the first one is Renaissance. I am really impressed by ABH’s shadow quality, they are highly pigmented, longlasting(with the eye primer) and lots of color variety. When I saw Prism’s nice mix of vibrant colors, I couldn’t resist myself. This palette contains 14 colors, there are 7 matte eyeshadow and 7 glittery pigments. What I really like about this palette is the selection of colors, there are some bold colors and there are some soft colors also. This palette can help you to create a glamorous party look, you can create a soft daytime look, or you can achieve a fiery summer party look also.

Let’s go through the colors, on the top line, there are 4 matte shadows, Eden is the soft matte orangy shadow, it’s a good transition color, though I have to reapply it a couple of time to get the desired color intensity. Unity is another nice transition color for the overall lid or to highlight your browbone. Now, my most favorite color in this pallet is Sphere, it’s a perfect color for this time of year, even if it looks bright neon yellow in the picture, its actually a very soothing color once applied on the lid. Obsidian is a dark shade, perfect for the smoky eye look or you can use it on the waterline also. Lucid, Sphinx and Osiris are the highly glittery pigments, a little fall down will be noticed, but great shades, especially Sphinx, a beautiful bronze shadow, perfect for evening.

On the bottom line of this palette, we have 4 glittery pigments and 3 matte shadows.  Dimension is a beautiful color, it will give you a metallic look, very trendy yet graceful. The parallel is a warm brown shadow, I always like to have a nice brown shadow in my palette, brown is a versatile eyeshadow, can be used with any makeup look. Another fabulous color from this pallet is Saturn, it is a beautiful salmon red color, it’s bold but not too harsh, you can create a beautiful sunset look with this one, perfect for daytime. The pyramid is gold glittery pigment. The Throne is another metallic color from this palette, it is a dark greenish glitter, little different and fun to use. The Lure is a matte soft pink shade, perfect for everyday look. And then we have Eternal, it is a beige glittery one, perfect for a glamorous look.

To create this sunset look, I used Eden as my transition color, then I used Saturn on top of  Eden. I used Parallel to cut the crease and then blend the shades nicely. Then I used Sphere for the entire lid and top with Sphinx for the center of the lid. And I used Unity for my browbone and Lucid for the eye corners. Hope you like my Sunset look. Share your ideas and thoughts with me.

Be gorgeous and happy blogging.
