A Working Woman's Grooming Guide

A Working Woman's Grooming Guide

Women of all ages and sectors are taking up personal grooming as a matter of prime importance. All offices and workplaces are different and it is not necessary that your workplace has to be a glamourous designer house or a big media house to propel you to groom better. Lauren A. Rothman, author of the new book, ‘Style Bible: What to Wear to Work’ states to the Huffington Post,

“A first impression is made every day”

Very aptly put, we all get a new chance to stand out at our workplace, regardless we are into a client facing work or not. How people in the office perceive us defines our success, promotions, impressions and the work allotted to us.
Here is a list of things that will help you dress for success and groom for good at the workplace.
1. First things first, you face. It is your market value and no one wants to meet & greet with a tired looking face. It is important you cover the dark circles or take care of the under eye bags with help of potato slices or green tea bags. Also, an even skin tone free from patchiness is a welcome affair. Rotham emphasizes to stand a few feet away from the mirror and check If there is any patchiness, if so, it should go.
2. Also, applying tons of makeup is not the only to achieve a beautiful looking, glowing face. Our inner beauty surpasses the artificial makeup we apply on the face. Therefore, it is important that you moisturize your face time to time and also hydrate as much as possible to keep the rosy glow.
3. Makeup should be simple and nothing loud. But a good lipstick attracts all the attention to your lips. When you speak, you want to be heard and a good lipstick that exactly that and more.
grooming4. Coming back to the eyes, if you could not sleep properly last night, you would want to add a layer of mascara to bring brightness and freshness to your face. Also, fake eyelashes should be kept outside the office doors. It is just a lot of drama in one place.
5. Nails and hair are as important as your eyes and lips. Long nails with loud nail color or chipping off paint is a sad story. Make sure your nails are trimmed, painted well and manicured too. Hairstyles need to be simple, neat and creased. If you cannot manage long hair, leave it for some other time.
6. Perfume or scent you wear speaks volumes about your personality, whether you sprinkle the right amount or overdo it. Many people are allergic to different scents or would not prefer a specific one. Therefore, apply minimum amount that can come across only when someone comes in close contact.

Lauren adds from Huffington’s interview, “I really consider perfume to be like lingerie — it’s something for you to enjoy, and for somebody who comes in close.”

7. Your jewelry should ne subtle and simple. No bling bling in the office, please. Also, piercing are a sign of immaturity, keep it all at bay.
With all that being said, whenever in doubt, Fabfit suggests you keep it simple & chic.

A College Girl's Grooming Guide

A College Girl's Grooming Guide

College days or the teen years are when we like experimenting the most !

We all want to look our best when we step into college and especially when it is after about a month’s break, everyone’s curious to notice the changes–thinner body, new hair colour, thicker eyebrows or more. Even as the visible changes are a hit with everyone, there are certain basic rules that we can never afford to go wrong with. Here’s a quick recap of all those things you need to keep in mind if you’d like yourself to keep groomed and looking charming always !
Face Care
We want to put our best foot forward when we step out, especially in the youthful years. Therefore, Fabfit recommends a light makeup with a BB or CC cream, a nude or mildly tinted gloss, good deodorant and a dab of mascara will do. Little did bits ready in your bag can make you look fresh, clean and tidy. Keeping it simple is the key, so, do not over do it with eye shadows or loud accessories. Also, do not forget to apply sunscreen to keep at bay the scorching July sun.
hardest-mean-girls-quiz-everPersonal Care 
In order to maintain good grooming outside, you have to be upbeat inside and this happens when you we eat right, sleep well and exercise. Although college days are the days when late night calls or junk food in the canteen or parties and excessive drinking takes place. Basically, we abuse our body to the maximum during these years. If you are looking to create a healthy outlook, it is suggested that you must eat well and sleep properly, and exercise at least 3 to 4 times a week. Crossing the lines sometimes is under acceptable terms, but do not make it a habit.
Personal Hygiene
An inevitable step when we speak of grooming is personal hygiene. Irrespective of the fact that you apply deodorants or makeup, you cannot look fresh and upbeat till the time you are not clean inside. Never skip a shower, until and unless is it impossible. Get your nails filed and manicured with a light nail paint and always shave your legs when you wear shorts or skirts. Wash your hair and keep it oil free and the hair-do simple (until you are going to burning man or Coachella). Visit a dentist in every three months and brush your teeth everyday and night, if possible.
Other small tips
Keep a mouth freshener in the bag and a small travel size deodorant. Moisture your skin daily and do not let chappy lips or scaly skin stay even a single day. Wear clean and fresh clothes and more importantly stay happy & keep that smile intact.

5 MakeUp Trends You Need to Follow in 2016

5 MakeUp Trends You Need to Follow in 2016

Trends, fads, craze, rage, styles! We are head over heels by the fashion twists the industry throws at us every year. Plaguing our wardrobes, fashion sidles into both personal and professional areas. Phones, electronics, architecture, clothing, styling, makeup, from A to Zeee, we are enveloped in the fashion spree. The runway trends for spring-summer 2016 have set the ball rolling into the boombastic & uncanny arenas.

It is all about bold lines, deep hues, shimmery eyes and innovative looks. The ideas that were earlier shackled under the tabs of taboo and too-much-to-hold-on-to are now open for exploration.

Consider these double tap worthy looks and makeup ideas before they get too stale to bail or worse, you become the last one to try them.
Dark, Moody Lips
Statement lips with minimalistic eye make-up are making it large from the past year and are here to stay. Walking from the classic red lip color, the new addition to the palate is oh-so-oxblood. The dark color looks perfect with any outfit and is a show stealer. Grab the attention with a stained ombré finish this time. This effortless makeup trick will be a tried and tested option anytime and every time.

The black eyeliner goes rogue this season as it decides to fill up the eyes at the most uncanny spaces. As easy as drawing lines, this technique traces the upper lids or the edges of a cat eye and offers a rather stand out façade in no time. An extension of negative space nails, the negative eyeliner is spunky and surreal.
 
 
Glitter tears
Glitter tears or overgrown lashes were a big thing this season too. While Coachella saw a lot of glitter tears, adding to the gypsy feel, other events saw a lot of falsie eyelashes, which were larger than life. Stepping on the no mascara trend of the past few years, you can use chunks of it this season to add an extra oomph to your style.
Blue eye shadow
gallery-1444657877-chanel-ss16Yet another trend that is having its moment is the blue lids. Showering us with a high dosage of blue enigma, the makeup artists united at the runway with the color in their palate. If you want to nail this trend, the mantra is ‘as you like it’. Yes, you can add a little bit of it for a smoky effect or hog the limelight with bright cyan eyeliner or fill the lids, as you please.
Sandbagging
A step ahead of the baking technique, sandbagging has caught up like a forest fire with Kim Kardashians’ makeup artist, revealing this simple yet really effective move for highlighting & saving us from the tortures of hot summer days. Using the translucent or loose powder underneath the eye and the around the bottom edges of the lips helps in keeping the makeup intact and ditch the scorching sun & the melt from it.
Try these makeup techniques and share your experiences with the fabfit community. Let us all walk towards glory in best makeup trends possible.

Five Habits that often Lead to Hair Troubles

Five Habits that often Lead to Hair Troubles

Environment, which is increasingly becoming a cause of concern, impacts our body, both within and without. Surrounded by air saturated with pollutants, even as one cannot ‘breathe easy’, it also impacts hair and skin alike. It becomes nearly impossible to maintain healthy & lustrous locks. Adding to this, our tight schedules limit us from spending quality time on grooming our hair. Hair loss, hair damage, split ends, dryness, and lack shine or smoothness are common causes of concern. Every time when we wash our hair, we find a chunk of hair settling on the drainage point, which creates stress & tension.

Stress and hair loss are like day & night, when one falls the other follows.

No amount of coconut oil, home treatments and hair care can reverse the tables completely until and unless, we make certain changes in our lifestyle choices.
The Bun tale
The weather can really be a bummer and ask us to tie our hair in a ponytail or a bun. While tying the hair up the nape is a relief from the scorching sun, beware, as too much of this can lead to hair loss along with acting as a hindrance in hair growth as well. When we pull the hair back tightly into a rubber band, the hair either starts breaking from the root or from the point they are being held by the elastic.
Wet Disaster

This is one of the common mistakes we make because we are in a hurry to complete our to-do list for the day. We use the brush or comb our hair when they are wet, which aggravates the hair loss pattern. The hair cuticles swell when they are wet and stretch the hair out, any extra pressure on them at this fragile time can lead to hair fall. You can simply apply conditioner in the shower and comb them out rather than detangling them after or wait for them do get dry. Also, check the brush or comb and always use a comb with big teeth.
Parlor Troubles
When was the last time you visited a salon for a haircut or a hair spa? Our hair are like our delicates, they need to be handled with care. Just like body spa, the hair also needs nourishment and good food. Even though you perform all those home remedies, still a regular cut and spa treatments are required to maintain good hair health. Also, lack of haircuts can give rise to split ends, which can travel up the hair shaft and cause breakage.
 Shampoo or not to Shampoo

Shampoos & conditioner lie in the middle of the line where a step forward might be too much, whereas a step backwards can be too less. In order to create that perfect balance, we need to look at our manes and decide whether our shampoo is doing any good or not. If the hair feels too dry the shampoo might be sucking all the moisture, which can worsen the situation. The sulfates and other harsh ingredients can cause damage, therefore adds more water than shampoo to create lather. Avoid Sudsing! 
The Toolkit
We put our hair through a lot of trauma because of the styling desires like coloring, straightening, curling etc. These tools are aggravating the damage more than anything. Once in a blue moon is till fine, but you could simply blow dry your hair with a blow dryer at home with the help of different brushes or using overnight braids to create waves, is always a better idea.
These simple ways and steps can minimize the hair troubles in no time. Try them!
