5 Bollywood-inspired Hairstyles To Withstand Monsoons!

Rainy days are not exactly a good time for hair and skin. Let’s face it, the high temperature and moisture in air can play havoc with your hair making it frizzy, greasy and flat. Blow-dries and heat treatments are ineffective in this weather and styling products only make the scalp more greasy. The best deal is to embrace your natural texture and play with cute hairdos. Here are our favourite super easy hairstyles for monsoon:

Add volume to flat hair by backcombing the crown section and pinning it into a high puff. Weave the rest of the hair into a French braid and secure with bright coloured scrunchie.


This chic and rainproof updo is perfect for office hours. Pull all your hair back into a low ponytail and twist it around to form a bun.


The most common complaint in the monsoon is greasy and oily scalp. If you can’t find time to wash your hair, this drape braid on the crown can be a saviour!

Fend off rain-induced frizz with a loose side braid. It’s easy, quick and 100 percent rainproof!


Ponytails don’t have to be boring! Make it chic by adding volume at the crown. Secure the rest of your hair in a high ponytail and flaunt your natural waves.

Foundation Brush

Ok ladies, using a foundation brush is not a compulsion. You can opt for a sponge or your fingers too, but do try this brush and see what suits you best. There are two kinds of foundation brushes: Buffing brush & Oval Brush. The buffing brush is dense, and can be pinched flat; best used for flawless and heavier coverage. The oval brush looks like a lollipop and is excellent for getting the most out of a full coverage liquid foundation.

Oval Brush

Buffing Brush

Powder/ Kabuki Brush

This short-handled, densely packed brush is our personal fave! An all-rounder brush, this one is ideal for everything, right from applying powder/mineral foundations to bronzer and blush—a keeper.

Concealer Brush

A small rounded brush or flat topped brush is just what you need for concealer application. Why? This helps make blending easier and lets you cover every area of your face, which includes inner eye corner, sides of your nose and covers blemishes too.

Blush Brush

How to recognize a blush brush? These tend to be either rounded or angled, and on the fluffier side—to pick up just the right amount of product. Gently sashay the bristles into powder blush and apply to the cheeks, brushing it towards your cheekbones. The plus point? You can always use this as a kabuki brush to apply bronzer.

All-over Eyeshadow Brush

Choose a brush slightly smaller than the width of your eyelid and one that is a wee bit fluffy to help blend different colours across the lids evenly. Use it in two different motions: the windscreen wiper sweep or circular motion technique.

Fan Brush

A big fan of the highlighter? This is the brush for you! In the shape of a fan, sweep the ends of the bristles across your cheekbones in an upwards motion and get that flawless, glowing skin!

Contour Brush

Ready to master your contour routine? Well, not without this brush! The slanted bristles of this brush make it easier to blend your contour powder neatly and precisely below your cheekbones.

Lip Liner Brush

This is such a life saver, especially when you want to remove pigment on your lips from direct usage of lipstick. Applying lipstick straight from the lipstick is fine, but use of a lip liner brush ensures ultra-definition.

Brow Brush/Dual Eyebrow Brush & Lash Comb

Always wondered how your favourite Bollywood stars on Instagram have brows to die for? The angled liner brush is the answer; it is a small, firm and densely packed—perfect #browsfordays. Find a brush with a spoolie at the end and you are sorted!

Mascara Brush

There are a variety of mascara brushes designed to perfect your lashes. From curling, to volume, separation and length, choose the one that suits your need. We suggest you pick the regular one like in the image below if you are not too sure what you are looking for.

Smudging Brush/Sponge Shadow Brush

Who isn’t a big fan of smoky eyes? Most of us love it! To perfect the smoky eye look, this brush is what you need; it has a rounded top which is perfect for smudging and blending different colours (eyeliner or eyeshadow) across the lower or top lash lines.

Sponge

Had to include this even though this isn’t a brush. The sponge is a must-have in your makeup kit as it is best used to apply any cream or liquid product. The beauty blender is fabulous when you have ample amount of time to do your makeup as it takes longer to blend compared to a brush, nonetheless it works wonders ladies.

Don’t have a set of makeup brushes yet? Well, now is the time to get yours; a new set of makeup products is not a bad idea either. Well, you are going to need it to make good use of your brushes. Check out our selection of makeup on our website.

Stop Making These Concealer Mistakes NOW!

Hello #BGStars, hope you all are doing great! We all know how crucial the concealer is in every girl’s makeup kit, right from hiding those raccoon eyes from late-night Netflix binge-watching to covering up your acne scars from monthly breakouts, blemishes and so much more. But sometimes, we can go completely wrong while using it, either we are using the wrong shade or have smeared so much to hide imperfections. Guilty of making these mistakes? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

Below we’ve listed some major concealer mistakes you might be making and the easy way to eliminate them—nothing complicated we promise. Do check it out!

Mistake 1: You’re not using the right shade.

Tip: Find your right shade by clicking the shade finder tab on www.bollyglow.com

Mistake 2: You’re skipping primer!

Tip: Primer helps ‘set the stage’ for long-lasting makeup. Use Bollyglow’s nourishing and sun protecting Bolly Prime Time CC Primer as your base for long-lasting, flawless makeup application no matter where the day takes you.

Mistake 3: You’re only using one shade.

Tip: Opt for a lighter shade concealer for your under eyes & match your concealer to your foundation for blemishes, dark spots, or age spots on your face. Did you know, different parts of your face have different needs, hence makes sense to have two shades in your makeup kit. Bollyglow has a variety of concealer & foundation shades perfect for the indian skin tone. Check out Bollyglow’s Selfie-Ready Conceal + Correct Duo & Filmi Foundation and choose your match now!

Mistake 4: You’re using too much concealer.

Tip: To avoid a cakey face, apply only as required! Less is more, and trust us you only need less concealer than you think.

Mistake 5:  You’re skipping the correcting step!

Tip: Colour correct problem areas on your face-dark circles, redness, acne scars, discolouration with Bollyglow’s 2-in-1 corrector (masala) on one side & your perfect shade concealer on the other.

Mistake 6: You’re not blending properly.

Tip: Blending is key, either with your fingers, a makeup blender or a proper brush. It’s best to use a small, flat concealer brush to get the best blend possible. Time to invest in a good set of makeup brushes #BGStars.

Mistake 7: You’re not setting with powder.

Tip: Setting powder ‘seals the deal’ and locks your look in place.

Get your conceal & correct game on point by avoiding a few mistakes and you are good to go beauties. Shop primer and your perfect shade concealer & foundation on www.bollyglow.com, and make the most of the combo offers—Buy concealer & foundation @1790 and primer & foundation @1990.
