Makeup Meltdown.

For starters, since St. Patty's Day was just last week, I am going to give Nigar the benefit of the doubt and just assume that the Stardust Bar launch bash coincided with the greenest of all holidays. That would explain her green on green ensemble (which I'm none too fond of, but whatevs).What I want to talk about, is her garish makeup for this event. Ok clearly, it being St. Patrick's Day and all (if it wasn't, then humor me!), she wanted to emphasize the green with bold eye shadow. Fine. In this case, I'm not keen on going all matchy with eye makeup and clothes, but ok. It's overkill because she's paired the heavy duty eye makeup with freaky green lenses (gah!), streaks of peach blush, and bubblegum pink lips. Ok first of all, blush is not war paint. Therefore, it should be lightly dusted on so as to accentuate the cheekbones. The way Nigar does blush, it's more like a bright neon sign flashing "cheekbones here". The bubblegum pink on desi complexions is just a plain ol' mistake in my book. It's too cool to go with warm skin tones. That being said, if you want to go with a majorly made up look, that's fine. Just pick one (and only one) feature to emphasize. With her shamrock colored eye shadow and heavy liner, she should have opted for nude lips and well blended blush.

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…

Coming to a Screen Near You: Freida Pinto.

So not only is this lass charming fashion houses the world over, Freida is racking up the film offers! We already know Freida's been tapped for Woody Allen's next project. Now, The Sun is breaking news that Freida has been asked to audition for the next Bond film which is reportedly likely to be directed by none other than Danny Boyle. I may be biased, but I think fab Freida would make one fierce Bond Girl! This is one rumor I hope comes to fruition. Daniel Craig + Freida Pinto = must-see Bond flick.

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 …
