Check out 5 Fashion Staples Any Woman Needs.

Scorching heat should not be your reason to ditch your fashion quotient. Embrace your natural beauty and minimalist aesthetics to bring out the best version of yourself in the summer season.

Stafford Braganza, National Makeup Artist at NYX Professional Makeup, gives tips and tricks to put your best face forward for a fresh look.

* Start fresh: Begin with splashing cold water on your face to get rid of all the excess oil and pat it dry, followed by application of a lightweight moisturiser.

* Primer comes first: Apply a face and eye primer for a smooth texture and even surface for your foundation to glide on easily. It prevents the foundation from melting down and helps your make-up last longer through the day.

* Use a lightweight formula: Avoid using heavy, full coverage foundation as it tends to melt away on sweaty skin. Swap it with a lightweight formula like BB creams or tinted moisturisers that are oil-free and have SPF to protect your skin from the harsh sunlight.

* Say goodbye to powder, and hello to cream: Use creamy versions of blush and eye-shadows as it settles effortlessly over the skin whereas powder tends to wear off easily. You could dust some powder over the cream for the cheeks and eyelids that will help the make-up last longer.

* Go water-proof: Try water-proof versions of eyeliners and mascaras as they are better able to withstand summer sweating and last longer when your lids are moist.

Wear a sun block (at least SPF 30) especially in coastal areas or while you’re in water as body tends to feel more burn in scorching heat when you are in water. Pixabay

* Love light lips: Choose light and soft summery, coral hues of nudes and pink lip colours for a refreshed summer make-up look. Matte and transfer-proof lipsticks, tinted lip balms and stains are your best friends for a smudge-free pout during the summer.

* Befriend the blotting paper: Always keep blotting paper handy when you are out and about in the heat to take off excess oil and ensure a soft and fresh radiance all day long.

From staple summer dresses to linen essentials, the summer mood is welcomed with styles that embody all the cheer of the season. Francesca Zedda, Head of Style and Trends at Marks & Spencer, suggests how one can stay fashionable in summer.

* Dresses are key for the season — think quality, comfort and style. From light cotton floral dresses, to slip midi dresses adorned with pretty pinstripes, swim beach dresses and sartorial linen dresses, these styles are soft and breathable and will keep you cool and comfortable on the warmest of days.

* Puff sleeves, gathered necklines and drawstring waist details elevate the everyday dress. Pair it with a gladiator sandal, some stand-out aviator eyecandy and a classic straw flat top sun hat for the perfect holiday look.

* Pick pieces in linen that will take you through the summer season in style. Lightweight and comfortable, they are perfect for wear in warmer weather, whether you’re away on holiday or enjoying the sunshine at home. You can layer up neutral tones together or mix and match coloured linen separates with white staples for a clean, on-trend look

* Introduce cool whites into the wardrobe. Whether you head for the beach or the city streets this summer, there’s something about an all-white ensemble that keeps things simple, yet chic, and is an easy way to look fresh all-season long. (IANS)

Filmmaker Karan Johar says he is going through a mid-life crisis, and that’s why he has added colour and bling to his personal wardrobe.

“Manish Malhotra has a very specific sense of his own. He’s very flashy and flamboyant as a designer but very sober when it comes to his personal sense. I think I’m going through a mid-life crisis so I’m wearing a lot of colour and bling. So, in our own ways we’re combating the age and stage we are at,” Karan said.

Karan opened up about his personal style when he appeared on chat show “Not Just Supper Stars” along with fashion designer Manish Malhotra. The show is aired in India on Zee Café.

The filmmaker then looked at Manish, and joked: “My mid-life crisis is in my head, yours is possibly in the bed.”

Asked if he enjoys stalking on social media, Karan said: “All the time. I have no problem being on it. I love stalking and it’s my midnight activity. When I’m lying in bed and right before I sleep, I’m at my stalking optimum best.”

Karan also opened up about his plan to lose weight.

“I’ve been on some eight thousand diets and that’s ruined my metabolism. Also, I’ve been one of those silent eaters — those who don’t eat in front of others but eat silently at night. I’m that kind of an eater but Manish starts getting into a bad mood, if you don’t feed him,” the filmmaker said. (IANS)
