March Goodie Bag
Try out a chocolate manicure at Tip & Toe’s newest site nestled in Bandra’s Pali Hill. Aptly known as the nail club, the atmosphere is bustling with foot-tapping music, huge but comfortable couches and granite vats to soak your feet in. They have an array of services that include nail art, nail extensions and the regular mani-pedis. Rows of nail paint and embellished nail extensions will leave you spoilt for choice.
Tom Ford captures the dark and sensual facets of four of the most celebrated blooms with the Jardin Noir collection. The thick black flacons with lilac labels contain fragrances that unleash a daring interpretation of each flower. Try Café Rose which tempers the lushness of rose with a peppery edge.
Chanel Eau Tendre Shimmering Powdered Perfume is a lovely limited edition addition to the brand’s repertoire of prettiness. The refined fragrance can be dusted on with the accompanying puff, to veil your skin with a delicate glow. The quaint vintage feel of the application process aside, the powder is far removed from your grandmother’s talcum. The lavender shimmer is a touch that only brightens your natural sparkle.
EXPERT TIP (by Bianca Hartkopf, Make-up Artist, Revlon India)
Travelling tends to tire and dry out skin, especially after a long flight. Exfoliate your skin one night before, as this will help retain moisture better. Layering on too much make-up will make your skin look tired. This is the perfect time to use mascara as it will give your eyes a less tired look. Dab on tinted lip balm to keep your lips pretty and moisturised, and finally, apply skin brightener on your cheek bones and under eyes to get an effortless natural look.
