Take care of your FACE

Our face is very important to us. Yes, we like the rest of our body, but the face says it all and bears it all. A pimple on your face is a bigger issue than on your hand or toe. Be it makeup, aging, happiness, stress, botox, the face shows it first. I think I don’t need to go on and on about the importance of FACE but we still lack in the care section.

We all love applying makeup (at least most women do). It does wonders but it can also lead to damage if we are not careful. One thing which we all need to understand is that no matter how glamorous you want your makeup to be DON’T pile it on. You will only end up looking like a cake pastry. Know the basics before experimenting with your face and the layering. The net is full of tutorials now. Gone are the days when we just stuck to kajal, lipstick and Tibet snow cream.

Makeup enhances our features but the skin below is the most important aspect. Prepping before makeup and cleansing afterwards are two very essential steps, which most women are too hasty or lazy to follow.

Dove Patch - What is Beauty?

Beauty is a state of mind. That is what Dove says. It is a state of mind, yes, it is how you "Mold" that thought. You can feel beautiful with or without makeup, in your pajamas or in an evening dress. There is no limit. Just be YOU, inside and out, and stay positive.
THAT is Beauty.

In the recent social media meetup Dove discussed how women really think about them selves. majority are in conflict with the way they look and feel. According to a first-of-its-kind social experiment conducted by Dove revealed that an alarming 80% of women feel hesitant to share the way they look, the study highlights how the right state of mind can unlock the powerful feeling of beauty that lives inside majority of women. I am quite comfortable in my own skin and can't relate to that majority but I do pity them. The results are documented in the short film Dove: Patches on dove.pk/patches or you can also review it here:

The Video was revealed globally in 58 countries including Pakistan. At the launch event held at Verde Bistro Cafe to illustrate the Social Experiment, notable bloggers and influencers were invited among successful women who encapsulate the terms ‘beauty’ and ‘strength’. I am glad I was part of it this.




A lot of people didn't understand the message Dove wanted to give. They thought "Why would dove tell us you don't need the product to feel beautiful and then try to sell us the product?" well yes, that is EXACTLY the point. We don't need to buy a beauty product to feel or look beautiful only. Dove encourages us to buy their products because of its benefits not because it will "definitely make us look beautiful" which sadly a lot of brands and products say to their consumers.

Consumers use the dove bar as it is gentle on our skin and has many qualities (ph balanced being one of them). The same goes for the rest of the Dove range. They always talk about the benefit of the product in REAL. That being said, the video say everything and so does most of their campaigns which have actually won awards and for good reason too.

I agreed with what Maha Kazmi, a talented singer, said after watching the above video, “In all fairness, we wear ourselves insides out. As much as we try to conceal what we are inside, others will perceive it. It is absolutely necessary that we truly believe that we are beautiful in order to be beautiful.”




What you want to use as a beauty product is your choice but its nice to know some brands are honest about what they are selling :) The Digital PR event was managed by Creative Chaos and the on ground activation by Bulls Eye 360.

P.s: Red Lipstick does make me feel beautiful and no its not because of any insecurities or no self confidence. I just LOVE red Lisps, that's all :D

Mango Summer Collection - Relax and be Hot

I am blessed I live near the sea because the New Summer collection from Mango is screaming out "Hot Beach Babe"! The light breezy clothes with simple cuts and prints, basic is back in style. In the summer catalogue you can also notice another hot addition to Daria Werbowy and that is Andreea Diaconu, another pretty face.

Some may consider certain pieces not wearable in Pakistan but there is a solution to almost everything.
  • The strapless dresses and spaghetti string jumpsuits can easily be layered with casual summer jackets or dressed up with sequined pullover. 
  • Sleeveless denim waistcoats can be worn over floral shirts or even long summer dresses.
  • Short dresses can be worn with straight cigarette pants or tights.
The mix and match choices are limitless once you let your imagination (and pocket) run wild ;) Have a look at some of my favorites from the collection:
