Pout beautifully, babes!

Love clicking selfies? Here are some incredibly easy how to’s for a beautiful pout:

Lip pencil – Use a lip pencil that matches the colour of your lips, rather than the lipstick, to outline your lips. Draw a V at the centre of your upper lip, if you want your cupids bow looking prominent. Shape the lips and corners of your mouth for greater definition.

Concealer – Apply some concealer for fuller looking lips as this helps them appear larger.

Lipstick – Apply a coat of your preferred lipstick, without going out of the lip-line. Remember that brighter colors are best for a beautiful pout!

Translucent powder – For a long lasting lipstick, blot your lips with a tissue and dab on translucent powder or even some regular powder. Finally, re-apply your lipstick.

Gloss – Apply a layer of lip gloss to add a moist sheen to your lips.

Happy Beautiful Lips!

Want to look Stylish at all times??

Here are a few, easy to follow tips that most Chic women have cultivated, to look polished at all times:

Dress for the occasion: Make an effort to find out what’s the dress code for any occasion, whether it’s ethnic or western, modern or conservative. This will help you in dressing appropriately and looking dignified.

Wear clothing as per your bodyshape to camouflage body variations.

Plan your Outfit the Night Before: Besides making you look your best, it also saves you from the stress next morning.

Keep some additional time in the morning for getting ready: Fix your alarm 15-30 minutes prior. This will give you sufficient time to apply your make-up, fix your hair, wear matched accessories and shoes. Also, for any other unforseen situations…

Plan the Right Undergarments based on your outfit: The foundation to looking great is well supported bras, panties and shapewear. For example, wearing nude bra rather than a white one under a white shirt will always look more appropriate.

Follow Other Stylish Women, fashion magazines & websites for Inspiration: This awareness only helps in understanding fashion and style more closely.

Cheers to many more Stylish Looks!

Do you know your Body Shape?

The way your clothes fit and fall on your body is what matters more than your body weight. Hence, it becomes essential to understand your basic body shape, which will then help in knowing the types of clothes that will accentuate your good features and conceal or camouflage your body variations.

Wear a basic, conventional swimsuit or your basic lingerie. Stand in front of a full length mirror with your legs together and your arms lifted up sideways. Examine your shoulders, bust, waist, hips and thighs. 

Blog body types1

You are a Triangle body shape, if you:

  • carry more weight on your hips and/or thighs?
  • have narrower shoulders and smaller bust than hips?

You are a Rectangle body shape, if:

  • you have a smaller bust.
  • there is very little difference between your bust, waist and hips.

You are a Round body shape, if:

  • you have fullness in the tummy area.
  • your shoulder and bust are slightly smaller in proportion.

You are an Inverted body shape, if:

  • you have wider shoulders than hips.
  • you have a heavier bustline.

You are an Hourglass body shape, if

  • you bust and hips are in line.
  • you have a defined waistline.

Now that you know your bodyshape, your aim is to create an illusion of having a balanced body with:

  • Shoulders and hips in line
  • A defined bust and waist

Choose your clothing sensibly to come as close as possible to looking proportionate. While dressing, view yourself in whole. Do not focus specific problems such as the tummy, bigs,arms etc, which can distract you from taking the correct dressing decisions.

Cheers:)

6 Must have bras in every Fashion girl’s wardrobe…

Wearing the right lingerie is the backbone to a perfect outfit! Unfortunately, we may not have right bra with us to complement a new dress/top/saree. So, here’s a look at how to pick the right must have bras:

Blog basic bra

Basic bra – This one is your bestie, for it is not only supportive but also comfortable enough for the whole day. Opt for a slightly padded, seamless one that you can wear over tees or even for the aircontioned rooms. These bras will never put you in an embarassing situation. Replace this bra every 6 months, as it might lose it’s fit.

Blog strapless bra

Strapless bra – The most important bra when it comes to wearing strapless or spaghetti dresses and tops. Try on various strapless bras till you get the perfect one. Usually, underwire ones do not slip so easily and stay on better.

Blog Convertible Bra

Convertible bra – It’s one of the most essential, versatile bras that you can get, if you like wearing halter or backless clothing. It’s modifiable straps can transform into a halter, racer-back, one-shoulder or a strapless style. Black color is the best choice here.

Blog push up bra

Push up bra – This bra has an additional padding of foam, gel etc at the bottom portion of the cup to lift the breast and give an illusion of a fuller bust. It’s a must have for women with smaller breasts. Mostly worn with fitted tops and dresses.

Blog sports bra

Sports bra – You definitely need one or more for your sports activities. To help prevent breast tissue damage, you should wear it even while brisk walking. Make sure you buy it as per your requirement, low, medium or high impact workouts. Replace the bra every 6-7 months, if you exercise regularly. Besides, these bras can also make the breasts look slighly firm and smaller when teamed with fitted tees. This is for those women who are slightly heavier on their bust.

Blog air bra

Air bra – These seamless and comfortable bras should be worn under slightly transparent clothes. It basically acts as a slip/camisole. For a firmer support, you can wear this bra even over your basic bras.

Cheers to perfect looks:)
