Hot Off the Runway Makeup Trends

By Priya Rane

The past Fashion Weeks of SS14 saw plenty of ‘barely there’ makeup looks with only a small handful that truly looked unique and out of the box looks. While Indian designers like Manish Malhotra, Anita Dongre and Tarun Tahiliani kept it simple and clean – Little Shilpa, Givenchy, Dior and Vivienne Westwood dazzled the eyes of makeup artists around the world.

It seems to me that the runway was the place to do it this season! Ace makeup artists like Clint Fernandes, Pat Mcgrath, Kapil Bhalla and Val Garland designed some stunners for us to look back on season after season.

Guest Post: The Jhumka Diaries: An Eye for Ethnic Jewellery!

By Praseena (Coral Crue)I am so excited to be writing for Divassence!. It’s an absolute favourite blog of mine. I love Deepika’s eye for spotting and featuring great pieces of jewellery.

I would like to showcase some of the pieces I have been using of late. Not all of it is daily wear.
There was a point in my life where I used to forget to accessorize. Everything was so rushed up until finally I installed a bangle stand and some accessory holding pockets in my dressing cabinet.

Guest Post: Top 5 Reasons Why People Go For Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgery which was once done by people who really needed it either because of a skin damaging accident or had some major appearance issues, has now become the hottest fashion trend. The amount of popularity gained by cosmetic surgery in the current times is really massive. So many of us are not happy by the way we look and are constantly trying to achieve something bigger, something better than we have actually got. All this leads to desperation which is compelling people to go under the knife. So, what is it that is making people go through such a big change in their bodies.

Guest Post: Skincare Routine for Oily Skin

When I had done a post on My Skincare Routine (for Extremely Dry Skin), a few of you had mentioned that  it would be helpful if someone did one for oily skin too. So today, on the blog we have a guest post by Punam on her skincare routine for oily skin. Here’s what she has to say about herself: and her blog, Be Beautiful with Punam“Hello Divassence! readers! I am Punam from Be Beautiful with Punam.

I am an MBA by profession & wife of an orthopedic surgeon. The spark that drove me to  blog were the late night emergency patients in my husband’s hospital 🙂 kidding! 

I am here because of my love  to use different products, trying home remedies for myself and my baby who is one and half years old and then developing a review for it. So I thought of sharing these reviews with all, as a hobby.

My blog is a place where I share everything that makes me beautiful. So be beautiful with a lady, be beautiful with a mother, be beautiful with nature, and be beautiful to define, be beautiful & feel beautiful with Punam. “

Welcome to Divassence! Punam. Thank you for sharing your skincare routine with us. Now, over to Punam to explain her routine 🙂 

I have always hated my oily skin but that is probably because I never knew how I could take care of it. learned to understand it  and things that can work for it. And now I love it even more because it gave me the opportunity to be here in blogging world and to meet Divassence! and its lovely readers.

Here I am sharing my skin routine and few things that have helped me improve my skin. My skin routine is mixed with products and some simple ingredients that we all know but don’t incorporate them in our everyday skincare routine.

First of all, always choose products meant for your skin type and remember, you may need to change them as seasons change.
