Watch out for the colour trends ahead

Eye­ing those hues!

The eyes get more se­duc­tive as the eye-shadow pal­ette gets more dar­ing. Greys and browns are on our ‘been there, done that’ list. A/W ’13 is the time to play with colours. Run a riot with pur­ples, blues and greens… with a dash of shim­mer. No fear, lady, it’s your turn to flaunt

your style.


Smokin’ hot

With so many colours to choose from, A/W ’13 spoils you for choice. Trends, per­sonal favs and bestie gifts — you have count­less ways to dress up your peep­ers.

Ten­der lov­ing care

Late nights are un­avoid­able, so take care of puffi­ness with a few sim­ple tricks. Put cu­cum­ber slices or soaked green tea bags over your eye-lids and re­lax for 15-12 min­utes. Re­move and splash your face with tap wa­ter. Now turn to your dress­ing ta­ble and start dolling up!


Rouge on the rim

Get your lip­pies ready for the up­com­ing sea­son with the hottest colours that ruled supreme on the cat­walks and, oh yes! pots and pots of lip balms.

Colour me bright

Un­leash your dark side! We don’t mean lit­er­ally, of course. Get those

lus­cious shades of ma­roons and plums off the beauty coun­ters and into your van­ity bag. It’s time to go all sul­try and sassy with the hues.

Ten­der lov­ing care

Take an old soft-bris­tled brush and rub it on your lips gen­tly in cir­cu­lar mo­tion. This will help get rid of dead skin. Fol­low up with a lib­eral ap­pli­ca­tion of petroleum jelly. Ap­ply a thick layer of lip mois­turiser and leave overnight. Suf­fer­ing from per­pet­u­ally cracked lips? Take a look at your diet; it might be low on vitamin B.


Let there be light…

… and make your face it’s source. Lu­mi­nous ra­di­ant skin is trend­ing big time and you can achieve it with a good diet, healthy life­style and a few must-have prod­ucts.

Ra­di­ance per­son­i­fied

A/W ’13 trends calls for an even ra­di­ant

com­plex­ion. That makes the primer, con­cealer, foun­da­tion and BB cream your new BFF. If you have doubts about how to

use th­ese prod­ucts, consult a make-up artist. Make sure the prod­ucts are suit­able for your skin type and tone. What­ever you do, the end re­sult should be noth­ing short of clear flaw­less skin. We’ve thrown you quite a chal­lenge there.

Any tak­ers?

Ten­der lov­ing care

Car­ing for your face is all about go­ing back to the ba­sics. Yes, we mean the CTM rou­tine. Make nec­es­sary changes in the prod­ucts you use, de­pend­ing upon how the weather af­fects your skin. Add a skin serum and overnight cream to your reg­u­lar stock of cleanser, toner, mois­turiser and sun­screen.
