Yaariyan, that released earlier this month, has been a hit with urban youth. While the music has been making a buzz in every dance club in town, the film has been a hit with college kids. This teen flick is about many firsts: first love, first kiss, first winning moment and the first surge of hormones. It’s a college life every youth dreams of; bunking college, ignoring teachers and dressing in ways best described as revealing.
The plot revolves around five close friends and an evil Australian business tycoon who plans on usurping the land between the girls’ hostel and the football ground. The star cast includes newcomers Himansh Kohli, Serah Singh, Dev Sharma, Rakul Preet, Evelyn Sharma and Shreyas Pardiwalla. Bollywood veterans Gulshan Grover and Yo Yo Honey Singh complete the star cast.
Half German-half Indian Evelyn Sharma started the pink craze in Yaariyan with her hot pink-bikini number, Sunny Sunny with Yo Yo Singh. While the song has gone on to become a hit, the pink power on display by the other heroines in the film is likely to become a hit as well.
Actually Pink is the new Red and this tutorial is all about keeping your pretty pout in top shape and flaunting pink on your lips. Its a versatile color that’s looks smashing at all times of day; hurried mornings when you’re late for work, leisurely girly afternoons or glam evening dos. As someone said, let your lips do all the talking!
Four lipstick rules you can't forget.
Between greeting colleagues and friends with a kiss, sipping wine, endless gossip sessions and of course cozy dinner and date outs, your lips certainly get a work out. Keeping your lipstick in perfect condition through the day can feel challenging, but have no fear! Here are my tips on how to keep your lipstick smudge-proof and fabulous all day long, running into the night.
1. Prep your lips
The night before give your lips a good scrub and moisturizing treatment. This gets rid of dry, flaky skin, leaving lips soft, smooth and less likely to flake. I highly recommend the Maybelline Baby Lips Balm. It comes in tinted and clear formulations. Slather on after exfoliating for a pretty, healthy pout even in the middle of the night.
2. Choose a hydrating formula
Skip dark stained matte finishes and opt for a lippie that has color but is also hydrating. This keeps your lipstick smooth and glossy without unsightly feathering. I love the entire range of L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Nutri Shine Lipsticks. They nourish like a Balm and shines like a Gloss
3. Curb that enthusiasm
You won’t need to keep reapplying lipstick throughout the day if you follow tips 1 and 2. Over applying lipstick can actually dry the lips out and cause color to gather or bleed. Instead, use a lip liner if you want to sharply define your pout and ensure lipstick doesn’t bleed. Please use a shade that matches your lippie. The Lakme 9 To 5 Lip Liner range has a huge selection of colors you can choose from. Apply on moisturized lips and then go over with lipstick. Touch up only after eating or drinking
4. Blot Before You Sip
You know those pesky lipstick stains left behind on your wine glass? Avoid them by blotting your lips ever so slightly with a tissue before drinking. This keeps more lipstick on your lips than on your wine glass!
Makeup can make any gal feel beautiful, but more importantly words of kindness and compliments can lift any mood and bring a smile. Remember that even if you’re wearing the perfect lipstick!!
