What Style Suits Your Body Shape?

It's often said that you need a "good figure" to pull off a sari. That's just a bunch of hogwash cuz a person with a good figure can pretty much wear anything and look I wanted to start a thread and discuss what styles and types of clothing suit what body shapes.

It's a well known fashion fact that choosing a certain style can help you enhance certain features and play down others that need not be as obvious.

How does this apply to desi attire? For example.....women that are less than average height and a little on the full-bodied side, don't look as attractive in saris as taller women do.

Pakistani Famous Sexy Model Neha in hottest Saree

A sari / saree is the traditional female garment in India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka. A sari is a very long strip of unstitched cloth, ranging from four to nine metres in length, which can be draped in various styles. The most common style is for the sari to be wrapped around the waist, with one end then draped over the shoulder baring the midriff. The sari is usually worn over a petticoat (pavada/pavadai in the south, and shaya in eastern India), with a blouse known as a choli or ravika forming the upper garment. The choli has short sleeves and a low neck and is usually cropped, and as such is particularly well-suited for wear in the sultry South Asian summers. Cholis may be "backless" or of a halter neck style. These are usually more dressy with a lot of embellishments such as mirrors or embroidery and may be worn on special occasions.Women in the armed forces, when wearing a sari uniform, don a half-sleeve shirt tucke…

Once you learn and master these application and blending techniques, the transition will take you only a few minutes. You can have irresistible-looking eyes, even if they are not big or bright.
Choosing colour

You will need one eye pencil, two colours of powder eyeshadow, and dark mascara to produce a fantastic smoky eyes effect.

The base eyeshadow should be a light and shimmery (not metallic) powder texture. Note that blending becomes more challenging if you use a creamy texture.

In this dress Vaneeza looks very sexy and hot
Tanushree is on a roll these days. Her film 'Dhol' releases this week. She is pitched against not one, but four heroes! And next on her agenda is a role in the children's film, 'Rama – The Saviour'.

In fact, she is shooting for the same in Thailand these days. For her role of Samara, she has trained under Peter Hann, the martial arts expert. Her character in the movie is somewhat like Lara Croft of the 'Tomb Raiders' series.

A visibly kicked Tanushree says, "Though I have been to Bangkok earlier, I have never seen this part of Thailand." 'This part' is all jungle terrain, where she is learning to maneuver through the dense growth, as well as to act out her action scenes, including those with wild animals, despite her fears.

The film will have state-of-the-art special effects and animation. The action sequences promise to be stunning. Peter Hann has also worked with Yash Raj Studios for 'Tashan', so Bollywood is not new to him.

Devdas won't Die this time!

For those purists who were appalled by the idea of Paro and Chandramukhi coming together in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's interpretation of the classic , Sudhir Mishra's version of the epic which he starts shooting on October 20, promises to deliver a jolting blow.

In Mishra's revisionist version of the re-located classic the doomed hero not only gets Chandramukhi, he also lives, arguing that life without Paro is as good as death.

But Devdas without his death?!

The film's producer Pritish Nandy seems pretty prepared to take on the purists. "Classics mutate with time. They change so many colours. I had decided to do our own version of Devdas after I had seen Sanjay Leela Bhansali's version.

As a Bengali I couldn't connect with his lavish operatic mood. Saratchandra's version of the tale was all about austerity, holding back rather than unleashing a torrent of emotions."

The kingpin of Pritish Nandy Communication seems undaunted …
Sawariya's inside Information

Contrary to reports about Monty Sharma being under pressure to deliver the right background music for Sawariya the podgy versatile composer has actually started work on the non-vocal aspect of the film's epic music.

Says a source very close to the project, "Where's the question of Monty being pressurized by the director to scrap and re-do the background music when in fact Monty began composing Sawariya 's background score only on Wednesday morning?"

Prior to that Sanjay and Monty spent more than one year finalizing the tunes, vocalists and arrangements for all the songs.

Says the source, "Though the music of Bhansali's films has always been a predominant motif, never has so much stress been put on putting across the drama and emotions of the script through the songs. There are love songs, mujras, a qawwalli…it's Sanjay Leela Bhansali's most ambitious score ever."

No wonder the most eagerly-awaited music soundtrac…
Kareena dumped Shahid for Saif?

The gossip mills are now churning out stories of Kareena and Saif's new found attraction everyday. Looking at their frequency of meeting it clearlt seems like their friendship maybe turning into something more.

The duo were recently seen enjoying a late night swim at the JW Marriott pool around closing time of 10 pm.

On Thrusday, Bebo, launched the music of her forthcoming film Jam We Met at a special recording session of Zee TV's popular music show, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, in Mumbai. Though Saif did not attend the show but he picked up Kareena after it ended. The two left together in Saif's car, with Kareena's car following them.

The actress who turned 27 on friday threw a huge bash at designer Aki Narula’s home in Juhu but Shahid was no where to be seen. Though he was planning to come down from Toronto he later changed his mind as his ladylove seems in no mood for a reconciliation and has been openly flaunting new flame Saif.

To Blow Dry or To Air Dry?

Should the hair be blow dried or air dried?
It is a matter of preference, actually. Some people do not have much time to devote to styling their hair, or want to achieve the maximum styling they can get for their hair, so they opt for blow-drying it. On the other hand, there are some people who think that blow-drying is a waste of electricity and is the quickest way of damaging the hair, so they opt to have it air dried.

Which is better, you may ask?
Both ways of drying the hair have their advantages and disadvantages, and there are proper and improper ways of doing both. Read on and find out what these are.

Air drying. Air drying is usually done by people who have short and low-maintenance hairstyles, or by people with curly hair. There are also people who have long hair yet have their hair air dry, as air drying does not subject the hair to excessive heat. Therefore, the hair is not as susceptible to damage as hair that is blow dried.

Herbal Help for Acne

If you have acne you’ve probably tried all the over the counter products and maybe even the prescription products on the market. Perhaps they don’t work for you or they irritate your skin and dry it out. There are other options. Herbal treatments and nutritional supplements can also help with acne, either applied directly to the skin or taken orally.

Zinc supplements worked wonders for me. I take 50 milligrams a day, twice daily and it helps keep my skin clearer than any prescription I’ve ever tried. You can find Zinc at a grocery store or drug store in the aisle with vitamin and mineral supplements. At Wal-Mart it’s only $2.13 a bottle. You can also order from catalogs and online websites.

Herbs that work wonders at clearing up acne are: Echinacea taken orally and applied externally to the skin, Oregon grape root applied as a cream, tea tree oil applied to the skin, oregano and basil oil applied to the skin or taken orally.

Be careful using any new product because yo…
Get Rid of Acne Scars

At some point you had acne, now you are left with embarrassing, ugly scars. There are ways to diminish and reduce the appearance of the acne scars. The severity of the scars will determine what you will need to do to diminish them. I would recommend seeking advice from a dermatologist or a cosmetic surgeon to determine the best course of action.

For very mild scarring you can try a few at home procedures and products to help reduce the appearance of the scars. At home dermabrasion and chemical peels can help diminish some scarring especially if you also use retinol or alpha hydroxyl acid lotions or creams. For sensitive skin you may not want to apply retinol or alpha hydroxyl products right after dermabrasion or peels because it can cause redness and irritation. Other products you can try are scar reducing creams like Mederma or Rosehip seed oil which is said to be great at reducing scar tissue. Aloe Vera juice and gels and lavender oils are also said to work well …
How To Create Beautiful Smoky Cat Eyes

It is easier than you might think to create professional looking, ‘sex kitten’, smoky eyes . This vampy look can be as subtle or dramatic as you wish. The tips below will create a more powerful look in black, but to achieve a more understated look simply select light grey, burgundy or dark khakis instead.
Remember, a lot depends on your skin tone and hair color - see blonde to brunette, so why not try a few different tones to see which suits you best?

Ingredients for powerfully sexy eye makeup:

* Black eyeliner - pencil. Ensure that it is sharp.
* Black eyeliner - brush. The thinner the liquid eyeliner is the better.
* Eye shadow brush. Thin stumpy bristles are best to maintain control.
* Dark eye shadow. Irridescent rather than flat matt (too hard), or shiny (too messy).

The Right Foundation

With so many varieties of foundation on the market today, as well as over fifty shade selections, finding the right foundation can be daunting. If your skin is oily, you will want to use an oil free or water-based foundation.
Dry skin works best with a liquid foundation or rich cream.
Test foundation just under the jaw line. This will immediately let you know if it will be invisible on the face, The mistake many women take is to test color on cheek, which is often darker than the other parts of the face, or worse, on the back of the hand.
Women of color have yellow pigments, so they should look for foundation with yellow undertones in oil-free formulations. Darker skin reflects more light and is generally more oily.


* Moisturize face and let it absorb. This keeps foundation on top of the skin.

* Stroke it on and blend quickly.

* Set it by dipping a brush into powder and going over the face in circular strokes. Don't worry about getting every bit of shine o…
Natural Look
Putting on makeup can be a daunting task for women who are not really adept at the art of makeup and are not familiar with the right techniques and with picking the right colors for their skin tone and eye color. Common fears include choosing the wrong colors for the skin or colors that do not match the outfit, putting on too little or too much, or botching the makeup altogether. Instead of putting on makeup, there are women who opt for just the ordinary face powder or talcum powder and a dash of lipstick (which may or may not be the right color for their lips either), and then they are done.

Makeup is supposed to enhance the features of our face rather than to cover it, and nothing is more alluring than what is known as the natural look. For those who do not know much about makeup, or know nothing at all, achieving the natural look is pretty easy. The key to doing it is matching the color of your foundation with the tones of your skin, as well as using shades that go well …
You will love your radiant skin after using this recipe.

All you need is:
1 tbsp fuller's earth
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp mashed papaya

Mix and put on face for 20 minutes then rinse off.
