In lesser than 5 min you can spot-on and correct your makeup blunders with following tiny tips for dark color skin foundation, shimmer, blusher, lips and eyes.
Darker Lips than face skin tone
Just a pinch of dark color in the center of your lips will create a more romantic and soft splash of color to your wedding makeup look. Go with a color that is darker than you would normally try, the colors tend to sheer out and look less intense than in the applicator. Dark shades of lipstick look great on Indian women. Take advantage of your ability to pull off darker shades of lipstick. You can do this by wearing colors like dark red, deep plum, and even shades of navy and black.
Dense Eyelash Extensions
Here’s a quick fix to short and curly lashes, try lash extensions. Lash extensions are different from wearing strip lashes that only last one day. These lashes that are applied with semi-permanent glue and last 3 to 4 weeks. The lash technician will apply each strand hair one-by-one making these lashes 100% customizable.
Reverse Smokey Eye
Use creamy black eyeliner on your bottom water line. Then apply a matte black eye shadow in Stripped right under. Using a smudge brush, pat the color in a downward motion.
In order to prevent inadvertently using a shade of foundation that is too light for you and looks unnatural against your skin, make sure that you buy a yellow-based foundation with warm undertones that won’t clash with your deep skin tone.
Indian women are some of the women who are lucky enough to be able to pull off gold highlighter successfully. Gold tones look beautiful against deep, Indian skin. Grab that golden highlighter and shimmer like the precious gem you are.
Copper Brown Blusher
This is an area, where you are likely to make a major makeup blunder. Remember, peach, orange, red and pink blushers are not for your skin tone, since they look artificial on dark skin tones. Brown and copper are the colors that complement very well with Indian dark skin tones. Steer clear of rosy reds, as they look very unnatural & fake.
Light Colour Floral Lehenga with net covering will be in trend in 2019, additionally with modest embroidery on lehenga but huge craftwork on blouse. Halter neck blouse with mirror work, embroidery and crop top like pattern will exhibit sensual look even in traditional event probably due to western pattern mixing.

The current trend has stirred many designer labels to offer these elegant elaborate lehengas in their catalogue. Flowing hair is the perfect hairdo with this attire. And for make-up, go with smoky eyes and glossy lips.
Not in global but in Indian context, Amazon can face tough time after Flipcart Walmart deal recently. Globally what can be the next big thing? What if social media is mixed with eCommerce such as Facebook + Amazon? What if Android starts own e-commerce? An online banking app Paytm is most successful eCommerce in India so Banking + eCommerce is also in race. Social media only have personal detail but banks have financial details which is more relevant for eCommerce purchase & advertisement targeting.
Besides crude demographics and geographies, the most logical hooks for ads are Facebook users’ expressed preferences — the books, music, and movies they’re increasingly listing on their profiles. And who has the best data on what consumers will buy? Why, Amazon.com, of course. The logic of a combination — a mixing of the two platforms with huge databases of consumer preferences is, at least on the surface, compelling.
This integrated platform will also help you figure out what kinds of gifts your friends might like by letting you better search for your Facebook friends’ Amazon Wish Lists and by pulling in information from your friends’ profiles. Of course, it will remind you of Facebook friends’ birthdays, too. It will show you interests you have in common with your friends, and it will show you which items are popular with all the people in your social graph.
Mixing Netflix and Facebook? Netflix doesn’t sell anything other than access to video, but the real value to video is using it to draw a crowd, then monetize them in other ways. Facebook has a lot more dedicated users than Netflix has subscribers, and could easily convert a bunch of them into paying video customers. Netflix has to fight tooth and nail to garner its new members. A Facebook/Netflix combo could serve as a very potent distraction, keeping shoppers’ minds off of Amazon altogether.
Android probably understands you more than you understand yourself. But the real catch is in the way Android interprets all these personal data and pieces information together in order to make it irresistible for its advertising customers. Android is poised to make the best out of your data. It’s a virtuous cycle where Google understands what data it needs, how to better interpret it, how to better collect it and what else to collect. Android ecommerce might debut in India around Diwali 2018. Google seems to have backed out of investing in Flipkart after seeing Walmart shareholders get jittery post its $16 billion deal to acquire 77 percent of Flipkart. The report further notes that Google’s Tez payments platform was “launched with the idea of populating the seller database”. Mukesh Ambani led Reliance Industries and Facebook are also reportedly planning to diversify their offerings in India’s $200 bn worth ecommerce market.

When you have some of the world’s biggest brands–the likes of Zara, Topshop, H&M, and Marks and Spencer– all subscribing to the same database of colors, patterns and practically ready-made templates, it’s not difficult to see why “shoppers complain that everything on the high street looks the same.” If you are able to mix social media trend with e –commerce buying pattern, you will have huge advantage while applying for a job or starting your own forecasting consultancy.

Sui means Needle & Dhaga means yarn , it’s good movie for fashion designers. Indian cricket team caption wrote, ” Saw @SuiDhaagaFilm for the second time last night and I loved it more than the first time. What an emotional rollercoaster with brilliant performances by the entire cast.” ” Mauji was superb @Varun_dvn. But Mamta’s character stole my heart totally. Her ability to be so quiet yet so powerful and impactful makes you fall in love with her. SO PROUD my love @AnushkaSharma . Don’t miss it guys! #SuiDhaagaMadeInIndia.”
Sui Dhaaga falls well short of perfection, but it never comes unstuck. It passes muster as a wholesome entertainer embellished with humour, warmth, authentic emotional trappings and actors adept at going seamlessly along with the flow. Sui Dhaaga is a well-meaning, simply woven, feel-good entertainer that delivers as much as it promises. Despite its minor flaws the movie is an engaging watch. All in all, Sui Dhaaga is a funny, entertaining movie that will tell you in all earnestness that even if not everything is badhiya, there are things that are always worth fighting for, be it a sewing machine or one’s dreams.
Mauji (Varun) works at a shop selling sewing machines and is often belittled by the owner’s son, who asks him to enact a puppy’s act, as part of his job. When the son asks him to do the same at his wedding, Mamta and her in-laws are embarrassed to see their son behaving like a dog.
The constantly complaining elderly father (Yadav) retiring from a no-account job, the always delivering homilies homely mother, the elder brother with a shrewish wife, will first put up resistance to the younger son and daughter-in-law’s plan to better their collective future, and after several easy conflicts, will become cheerleaders for Team Sui Dhaaga.
It’s tough to imagine that a stitching test—the race to sew a pillow cover to eventually win a sewing machine—could send your pulse racing but it does happen in Sui Dhaaga.
Mamta might have spent most of her life serving her husband and in-laws, but she is the brain in this enterprise. Without actually instructing Mauji directly, she gives him broad hints, nudging him in a direction, and then willingly takes her place on the backseat of the cycle.
Without question, the film’s finest performance comes from Yamini Das, as Dhawan’s mother. She is a mother who runs her house on autopilot, and can’t let go of instructions or kitchen utensils even when she’s collapsed from a heart attack.
Much before release some meme of the movie actress become huge hit in India, Please share & enjoy.
