Eight captivating fall fragrances


The cooler season is here, which means its time to replace your fruity summer perfumes with their musk-y deep counterparts. Take your pick from our selection of eight fall fragrances that keep you on top of the game.
1. Calvin Klein Forbidden Euphoria: Ease into winter with the sweet scent of raspberries and peaches in Forbidden Euphoria. However, before you go back to the memories of beaches and bikinis, it sneaks in cashmere wood and patchouli that are hard to miss.
2. Amouage Honour Woman: Winters are not all about musks and woods, it can have a huge floral heart and that is what Honour Woman proves to us. A bouquet of pink jasmine, gardenia, tuberose and lily-of-the-valley culminate in incense and leather, making this a very memorable scent.
3. Burberry Body EDP: Touted by Burberry as its most sensuous fragrance, Body was one of the most awaited releases this year. With Rosie Huntington Whiteley as its face, this is one fragrance that has a charming personality of its own.
4. Givenchy Ange ou Demon Le Secret EDP: If there is one perfume that spells autumn, its this. A citrus start that takes off from warm summer months ends in cedar and musk representing the change in season.
5. Kiehl's Original Musk Oil: An age old blend that is very popular among Hollywood celebrities including Charlize Theron, the Musk Oil was once called - Love Potion for its sensual quality.
6. Diesel Fuel For Life, Denim Collection: An emblem of youth, the denim packaging takes us back to the time of rock n roll. The scent however is every bit modern and sexy with raspberry, jasmine, dry wood and amber gris.
7. Lancome Magnifique EDP: With Saffron, caraway, sandalwood and vetiver, as the main players in the fragrance it is hard for it to be anything but magnificent.
8. Estee Lauder Youth Dew EDP: Created in 1953, Youth Dew is one of the oldest fragrances by Estee Lauder. This is one spicy scent, that continues hold women's attention world wide with its timeless appeal.

Achieving a perfect blow dry every day of the year tops every woman’s beauty wish list. But, let’s face it ladies, rushing to a salon every time one hair strand moves out of place is a little too impossible to do. Add monsoon induced frizz, humidity, unexpected showers, exorbitant salon costs and a little less time and what you have is a recipe for hair disaster. Not anymore, we say. Get those freshly blow dried shiny tresses with our best five tips to get a salon blow dry, yes you heard it correct, at home.
Prep n prime: Know your hair well. For a frizzy, go for an anti-frizz smoothing shampoo and conditioner. Limp Hair? Look no further than volumising products, complete with a root lifting spray or mousse. It pays to know your hair texture and its condition to ensure you get max out of any hair product. (Try TIGI’s control freak to tame frizz)
Damage Control: Damaged hair need special attention. Period. Think of a bleeding finger that needs a band aid. Weak, damaged tresses are prone to breakage, split ends and dry, rough ends and thus need extra TLC pronto. Invest in nourishing hair masks and deep conditioners and religiously use them to see a difference. (Try Lush H'Suan Wen Hua to smoothen rough strands in a jiffy)
Heat Protect: haven’t we stressed upon this already? Not enough. All the heat styling, topped with oodles of high speed settings and 3 times the hair straightener strokes can defeat the bravest and the strongest of hair. Heat protecting your hair even gives and extra grip to your brush while blow-drying(We love Kérastase Ciment Thermique, does what it promises and smells good enough to eat)
Blow dry SOS: “The trick here is to divide hair into sections so that you can work with individual sections to create a perfect blow dried look”, says Placid Braganza, ace hair stylist. Part your hair into 2-inch sections and clip the top of your hair. Always start with back sections, closer to your nape using a medium-sized round brush and moving the dryer over the brush as you go, pointing its nozzle downwards at all times. This flattens the hair cuticle and ensures a frizz free and shiny end result. (Invest in a new generation ionic hair dryer that minimize hair damage by up to 50% than regular dryers. Check out Remington’s range of hair dryers)
Bombshell Blowout: Glide a straightening iron over your sections to seal in the smooth, silky look and finish by spritzing a gloss mist or hair serum for movie star finish. (We love GHD hair irons and Kiehls Argan Gold Mist to get that super glossy, salon-style blow dry that lasts)

Beauty Experts - Choose the right foundation for your skin
Choosing the right foundation for your skin is one of the most essential steps to flaunting a flawless complexion. The right formula keeps you feeling comfortable in your skin and has you looking and feeling great. A quick vist to your dermatologist will help you gauge your skin type. Be it oily, dry, normal or acne prone let us help you make the right decision with your foundation.
Normal Skin:  A variety of formulas work for normal skin. Change in seasons tend to bring a change in the texture / type of your skin. Choose a dewy formula for slightly drier days and a semi matte foundation on hot humid days. The key is moderation; a matte formula might make for lackluster skin or a creamy formula might exxagerate the shine. Vogue.in recommends Estee Lauder Nutritious Vita Mineral Makeup.
Dry Skin: Dehydrated skin definitely needs a moisturising foundation. A water based liquid foundation with a satin/luminising  finish helps hydrate skin while evening out any redness. Satin formulas also aid in hiding dry spots while creating a dewy finish. Hydrating formulas work well with aging skin to create a supple complexion. Vogue.in loves the Lancome Photogenic Lumessence Line Mastering and Line Smoothing Foundation.
Oily Skin: Mattefying or semi - matte foundations are formulated to combat excess oil and sebum production and help keep your face looking fresh all day long. Setting the matte foundation with translucent powder of sheer powder foundation is highly recommended for a long staying, shine free skin. Vogue.in recommends Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Mineral Foundation.
Acne Prone Skin: With acne prone skin, the ingredients in a foundation play a huge part in determining the right fit for your skin. Look for foundations that are free of comedogenic products like mineral oil and lanolin. If your skin is oily and acne prone a good choice would be powder based mineral foundation. If your skin feels dry, stretched and is acne prone try water based creamy foundation. Applying a silicone based primer before foundation helps reduce redness and creates a smooth texture on your skin so the foundation applies easily and evenly.Vogue in loves Dermalogica Treatment Foundation
