Color Confusion.

Newcomer, model-turned actress, Geetanjali Thappa attended the wrap party for her upcoming film Tina Ki Chaabi in an eye-catching hot pink sheath dress that appears to be made from raw silk. The cut, fit, length and color are fantastic. She was actually thisclose to complying with the Fashion Rules. That's right, people. There are rules. It's the choice of bright blue sandals that throws this look off. The rule in question is that you can colorize your wardrobe by anchoring your look with a neutral and pairing it with a kicky shade that is within the same color family. The reason Geetanjali was so close here, is that had she switched out the bright blue (not a neutral) heels for a pair of navy ones, she'd have nailed it! As hot pink is a blue-based tone, it would have worked well with navy, complied with the Rules, and maintained a fun and colorful appearance. In fact, she would have drawn a big kudos for boldly playing with color rather than sticking to safe neutrals as newbies are prone to do.Makeup-wise, no doubt Geetanjali is a natural beauty and surely doesn't require layers of makeup. However, for a party, it would have been nice if she had kicked it up a notch ever so slightly with sheer eye shadow, black liner and a glossy pout. The liner in particular is sorely missed - you'd be surprised how a little liner can take a look from daytime cas to evening glam. Photo Source.

Meet Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan

The young, beautiful, and fashionable Queen of Bhutan, a country secluded from the world's limelight due to its remoteness, has already been generating a stir ever since her marriage to the King and her rise to the position of Queen Consort. She is a powerhouse in her own right, and much loved by the Bhutanese people. However, on a fun and superficial level, she has also drawn favorable comparisons to the Duchess of Cambridge, so much so, that she is sometimes referred to as the "Kate Middleton of the Himalayas".
So who is this Himalayan Queen? At 25-years-old, she is the youngest Queen Consort in the world. Like Kate, she was a commoner (though with an aristocratic lineage) and the daughter of a pilot. She is fashionable, athletic, and holds a university arts background. Additionally, she herself is a brand new mum, having recently given birth to a baby boy.
As with Wills and Kate, the King and Queen of Bhutan have always shown great respect for their country's cult…

Looking for a DiorShow Extase dupe

Getting 3 kiddos fed, dressed, and out the door on time on school mornings, is challenging on a good day. Between prepping breakfasts, packing lunches, double checking bags for homework, and generally refereeing Big A and S while simultaneously holding or nursing Little A, means I have precious little time to make myself presentable. As a result, mascara has taken the front and center stage of my makeup routine for rushed mornings because who has time to carefully paint on eyeliner?!
1. DiorShow Extase (discontinued) 2. IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara
I was crushed when Dior discontinued their Extase mascara. I adored it. The brush had the perfect shape, and unlike DiorShow or Blackout, this formulation was amenable to multiple, clump-free coats. Unfortunately, none of the current offerings in the Dior mascara lineup feature a similar brush to Extase. IT Cosmetics offered a comparable brush and sounded like it might be a good dupe. On the positive side, the m…

Two Faced Mascara Melt-Off

**UPDATED** We all love mascara that doesn't budge, but who enjoys nightly battles with mascara removal? Not I. Which is why I was excited to give this product a whirl. It promises quick, easy, and effective mascara removal. I simply applied a coat to my lashes using the kind of wand you would expect for lower lash mascaras. I let the product remain on my lashes as I washed my face (approx. two minutes). I used a cotton pad soaked in my favorite eye-makeup remover to gently sweep off the mascara.
The Mascara Melt-Off definitely speeds up the mascara removal process, with significantly less tugging and rubbing of lashes. I felt that the results were a more thorough mascara removal than makeup remover alone.

That said, the directions stated to use a cotton pad to wipe off the mascara; but I found that you most definitely need to soak the pad in your usual remover. Also, I should note that I tested it on non-waterproof mascara. I have no idea how effective it would be in the case of …
