The clock is my biggest competition. I am always running to be on time and somehow it keeps ticking by and I am ‘late’! Now I have realised that while there is a grace period given most of the time, looking graceful is important too.
Make sure that you turn up looking well-groomed, even when you are let’s say ‘fashionably late’!
Here’s a video that you can watch and learn from. While on the go, have these 5 beauty products in your touchup kit to look WoW always.
Here’s how the magic of makeup can transform not only the way you look but also how you feel.
It is Friday evening and you are wondering what to wear, where to go and what to do… Well, I am in that frame of mind right now and have realized that an outfit can actually set the mood for everything else to follow suit. You can call me a ‘fashion show’ addict as I never miss to check out what’s hot on the ramps across the global runways. They not only are a visual treat but can inspire you to look ‘wow’!
I love to experiment but if I feel a designer’s style suits me, I don’t mind picking up more from her collection. Of late, http://www.latej.com has become my ‘go-to’ option. This pink maxi gown makes me feel like a diva.
#The vintage cut work embroidery around the neck makes it ideal attire for a sophisticated occasion.
#The long cuff sleeves upgrade the style quotient to Victorian glamour. So you can bring on the indo-western look effortlessly.
. #While the elastic waist band makes the fit comfortable, the plunging back transforms it to ‘super sexy’!
#A gorgeous mix of georgette and silk fabrics keep the fashion statement regal and classy.

When you wish to wear a tight casual top or a well fitted party dress, the fitting of your innerwear defines the look from within. I decided to shop for fancy yet functional lingerie that would be ‘fabulous, as I am’!
I took my pick from Enamor’s spring/summer 2015 collection with Parisian theme. The Eiffel tower motif which is an iconic symbol for fashion, is my all-time-favourite. So I definitely wanted to select the bra with that print on it as it spelled the elements of glamour, elegance and romance from my dream city, Paris. But what makes it wow is the fact that:
#The fit is perfect and can make any simple outfit that you wear it with, look graceful no matter what is your body shape.
#The satin finish feels good on the skin and is ideal for a hot humid day as well.
#The straps are cute enough to be flaunted with a tube dress without looking OTT (over-the-top) or vulgar at all.
By adding such a ‘confidence booster’ to my wardrobe, I felt WoW!
Women love to ‘day dream’ about a number of things and clothes tops that ‘never-ending’ wish-list…
So if you are still wondering on a Wednesday afternoon what to wear for that Friday evening party, you can start surfing for options like I did. The ‘key words’ that I had in mind were –#Hollywood #fashion #redcarpt #style #glamour #elegance and more…
Though there were loads of options to choose from, I finally found this attire from La Tej by fashion designer Tejal Kandpile, that made me feel like a princess in a wink.
Here’s what makes it ‘WoW’:
#The blend of fabrics like cotton, satin and Georgette make this ‘diva silhouette’ a perfect amalgamation of structure and fluidity. You can wear this gown to an evening do and look red-carpet -chic instantly.
#The colour scheme complements most complexions as this maxi dress has a rust red bustier teamed up with grayish blue long skirt. The matte gold, sequin embellishments upgrade the royal feel of the attire.
#The curved embroidered yoke, the motif of two fierce lions roaring and the keyhole cut-work will boost your glam quotient effortlessly.
Keep the makeup classy to complement the ensemble. Keep the skin dewy with a hint of your natural glow, define the eyes with a soft, smokey brown eye shadow and opt for a classy red pout to finish this look. Leave the hair open to cascade down naturally over one shoulder and make heads turn.
Looking gorgeous just got easy!!!

When it comes to getting your look right for a cocktail party, the right outfit makes all the difference. You would not want to look ‘rock-chic’ in western, blingy silhouettes as if you are going out clubbing OR go traditional in ethnic wear…
I recently picked up a classic cocktail gown from La Tej by fashion designer Tejal Kandpile. It seemed to be simply WoW.
Here’s why you should own it:
#This black long dress has the perfect length to make you look graceful across occasions.
#Box pleat detailing can slim down your figure and make you stand tall.
#The antique embroidered band works as a self-embellishment, so you can go easy on wearing accessories and look effortlessly classy.
#The pure brocade and cotton satin fabric makes you feel like a princess instantly.
So then you can simply keep the makeup and hairdo minimal and look retro chic.
Now you can say cheers to a gala evening do in style!

Google is informative and sometimes quite surprising as well. This would be just another ‘Monday’ unless I chanced upon the fun fact that it is ‘Kiss Day’! You may find it cute or ‘huh’, I suggest you make it ‘Wow’ your style. Here’s what you can do may be to…
Keep – It – Simple- n- Sweet:
#Wardrobe: If you choose to be fashion forward, sport the quirky lip prints on the attire you wear today. It is trending this season so make the most of it!
#Accessories: You can sport a neck piece or earrings with lip motifs or even hair accessories to keep it cute.
You can try an ombre style that MAC Cosmetics Artist, Manseey Vorra from MAC PRO Store, Juhu created for me.
As seen in the pix, I am wearing a bright red -Ruby Woo on the outer rim of my lips and a hint of a fuchsia pink – Flat Out Fabulous in the inner core of the puckers
#Well, pout for a pretty selfie if nothing else since this dual-tone effect will instantly plump up your pout, make you look stunning and wow!
If you think YAWN can be your style statement for the first day of the week, then it’s time to wake up to some magic of makeup. MAC Cosmetics Artist, Manseey Vorra from MAC PRO Store, Juhu, helped me to perfect the ‘Un-sleepy’ Monday look (as I call it!), with smart use of products.
Here’s how to do it:
# Make sure to apply a good foundation to create the illusion of a flawless complexion.
# Add a dash of blush on the apples of the cheeks to look fresh.
# Pretty up the eyes by playing with a hint of pop colour towards the inner corners of the eyes.
Also, make sure to blend it into a warmer colour that you can use in the socket of the eyes, towards the outer corners.
#Groom the eyebrows with a dust of dark eyeshadow and fill in the gaps between the hair to make them look fuller.
#Keep the pout soft and subtle with a touch of colour that complements this look beautifully.
Shrug off those Monday blues and get glamourous even while you are @work.
