Some Of the Common Lipstick Mistakes we need to avoid and Achieve Attractive Look

We actually want to flaunt over best almost everyday . Let’s assume you wake up with a zit and while doing your makeup your entire attention gets snatched by the lil red monster . After all depending on it’s area of occurrence you got to know if u wanna you blush at all . Then comes good skin day ruined by winging mania . Eyeliners are a little too bratty to tame .We all know that a lipstick beats all the other make-up products for the top spot. But sadly we think that the only makeup we all can apply like a pro .There is something really timeless about this little bullet of colour. It instantly brightens up your eyes, and brings colour to your face. Habing nurtured the misconception rather keeping faith in our ability that barely exists we make terrible lipstick mistakes ,Sometimes the colour fades out in half an hour.Sometimes we spend our hard earn money on high end make up brands yet end up looking not up to the mark . Sometimes color formula everything remains alright ,they do not look the way you expected . It hurts … Yes it does .

So let us see what are the mistakes we’re doing :

Do you pay enough attention to ‘Prep n Prime’??
I would be tagged a terrible liar if I say I always follow this . But the truth my dear is lipstick needs an even, smooth base. If you apply lipstick on  dry ,Flaky lips, no matter how good the lipstick is, it won't look good.
What you need to do is Prepare your lips first .. So lets concentrate on ‘Prep
 A coconut oil and sugar scrub, is an easy cure to this, and can be made using kitchen ingredients in a min.
If you have dry skin apply extra virgin olive oil and sea salt . Wipe it then apply apricot oil and let it absorb .
If you have oily skin after applying oil or oil based balm please conceal skin arround lips with aloevera gel . And break out near lips can divert attetion and the money you are planning to spend on lippies are going it vain .
Once you are done with scrubbing Let’s concentrate on ‘Prime
Use a oil free organic lip balm ,and oil based one can be used .In that case you need to apply it 20mins prior to lipstick application .

Protection :
Make sure you use a lipbalm underneath your lipstick that contains spf 15 otherwise you lips shall get ugly pigmentations .
Hydration :
Lipsticks, especially pigmented ones, Liquid lipsticks et.c contain a lot of chemicals, making hydration more than just a matter of comfort. Hydrating with a thick cream that gets absorbed by the skin, is crucial. Make sure you treat your lips like you pamper skin . Keep a slice of beat root in between lips once a weak . And you can use organic ghee when you have no plans to step outside . These home treatments will give you amazing lip texture that will beautify your lips .

Are You choosing the formula according to your skin ?

I  totally understand this is personal choice, but different formulas mean different rules. If you want to use matte,you must know that a  matte texture will have longer staying power, but might feel dry and tight on the lips so be sure to moisturise first and then apply your colour. A creamy texture is more forgiving, but will need to be applied more frequently, especially in the middle of your lips.So using a creamy one barely means you cn skip the moisturizing session .Use a lipbalm .Wipe it off gently the use a lip liner . Lining lip’s outer shape and inner  circle plays a vital role .Creamy Satins have tendency to fade and needs touch up using a similar color lip liner will save the bad lippie look in your selfies .
Lip Lining
Lining lips is a must . Do you remember in the 90s when the liner was darker than the lipstick? Honestly  it is important for your pout. The purpose is to frame lips,so matching the colors is important. It is used to trace your lip line with the pencil, and stop the lipstick from ‘bleeding.'You need to use a lip liner in the same shade as your lipstick, to line the cupid's bow and the outline of your mouth.
 In addition, the centre of the lips should also be filled in with lip liner. This way, when the lipstick fades, you won't be left with just an outline. Adding to that you get a pefect frame to glide your lippie .
Liner  Mistake
The world is obsessed with thick lips .It was considered cool in 90s .But overlining makes you look weird . Remember 90s bollywood lipstick? That unnatural lining looks not only weird but funny too. Using a different color lip liner or a darker one cn ruin the look .
Setting lippie is Important
The way you need  to set your foundation ,setting your lipstick is important in order to stop your lip colour from budging, hold a tissue over your lips and dust translucent powder across it. This film will mattify and set things in place. If you don't want the matte effect, then you can also spray your setting spray on the pout.

This is one of the most crucial thing we often forget to concentrate on . Knowing your undertone is mandatory . These days neon lip trend is common . But we often notice such looks turning horrible . This is because we are so obessesed with which will suite fair tone and which will suite dusky tones we barely give importance to undertone . A fair beauty can can yellow undertone ,while a dusky beauty can have pink one . So it knowing your undertone is important . If your undertone is yellow inclined stay awayfrom lighter shades of pink with blue undertone . While coral inclined pinks will look amazing on you all .

Brand Obsession :
Last but not the least , don’t judge a book by it’s cover . Can get amazing colors and quality in brands that you underestimate because they are not high-end ones ,while high-end product may not actually fulfill your expectation .

Weaving Together Cultural Richness and Social Equity : What Young India Says

Ancient Indians were the masters of life having great knowledge about everything from adhyatma (spirituality) to the aesthetics. It is not unknown that the world looked at India for its finest quality textiles and spices, and that India was invaded for the same for several hundred years. The handloom sector is one of the largest unorganized economic activities after agriculture and constitutes an integral part of the rural and semi-rural livelihood. Handloom weaving constitutes one of the richest and most vibrant aspects of the Indian cultural heritage. There is an unimaginable amount of hard work and intricate detailing that goes behind producing one of the richest and the most sustainable forms of fashion in the world.
I  guess all of you have already read My Ootd Post for #National HandloomDay
To mark the Swadeshi Movement which began on August 7, 1905 and with the objective to generate awareness about the importance of handloom industry and its contribution to the socioeconomic development, the government on July 29, 2015 declared this day as ‘National Handloom Day’.
Indian based handloom and fabric industry but have managed to provide a life of respect and sustainability for the people who pursue it as their passion or as their support system. The sector has several advantages. Being less capital intensive, it has minimal use of power. It is eco-friendly and there is flexibility of small production. It is open to innovations and adaptable to market requirements.
Let us See what Creative minds of Young India Is Saying about Handloom Industry :

Fashion Designer Manjeri Sadhashivan from Cognac by Manjeri. says:

"The love and effort with which a handloom fabric is made from the hand twisting of the yarn to the dyeing and countless hours of handweaving tells the story of a practise that goes back eons. Handloom fabric is perfect in its imperfections and therefore no two are truly ever alike."

 Style Blogger Surabhi Virnave of Stylingfiesta says :

"Amidst all the western outfits available today which are sleek and stylish, there is also a niche market for homegrown handloom and fabric clothing. These fabrics not only bring in a difference in the socio economic growth by creating jobs and but what is important is that the hard work put in for the intricate designing is well appreciated. I personally know a lot of women craving for styling themselves with homegrown fabric which not only makes them look elegant and chic, but also are very comfortable to carry on for long hours.." 

 Fashion Blogger Anupama Ganguly ,owner of  Blogeshwari

 India feels elevated celebrating the second edition of the National Handloom Day, the day that was established to commemorate the hard work of the finest craftsmen of the country. Fashion changes from time to time, but homegrown handloom is eternal. The beauty of these ethnic apparels speaks profusely of the intricately designed patterns smeared in vibrant colors. The effort and the detail of the craftsmen is not only appreciated within the bounds of our country but is also worn as a fashion statement worldwide. Only a rich fabric produced with unimaginable effort and craftsmanship is worthy of giving a woman an ethereal beauty and we truly appreciate it.


Style blogger Sowmya Mishra of The fashionpixie says 

It is clearly​ a fact that homegrown handloom fabric is one of the most versatile and authentic fabric that our country possess. Handloom fabric is not only comfortable to our skin but also is environment friendly, which is highly important to be taken into consideration. Let's encourage and spread awareness of this exemplary fabric with pride. 

Let me tell you one thing ,Men , even if they are not interested in Handloom Saree or Fabric 
can provide you amazing facts about handloom industry and it's growth ..I think this is impressive 
Life Style Blogger  Wrik Sen from sensbucket says 

In terms of handloom, what is not being common enough for the public, and still remains cornered in the world of fashion and apparel, is India's North-East. As you will find in one of the recent articles on my blog, I have written about the history of fabrication, and it's deep link to social life in the region, but basically underlining, what rich cultural heritage there is, in terms of fabrication. Anything to do with silk, in India, will have a connection to the North-Eastern part of the nation, because the variety of silk is actually a lot.    
Having said this, since cultural life is more dominant in the North-East region, and weaving and handloom fabrication is a part of the local culture for most parts, some of the most vibrant designs and colors, and varied weaving techniques can be witnessed on North-East Indian creations. One such prime example is Arunachal Pradesh, where their native dresses always have a story to tell.
