This is used by women all over India. The turmeric acts as a natural cleanser and disinfectant and will not turn your skin yellow. The chickpea flour sloughs off dead skin to give unimagined silkiness and the milk will firm up the entire body. Even the tiniest of babies are massaged with this body polisher, but do be careful if you have a history of allergy to wheat or lentil flour – use rice flour instead.
1 tablespoon chickpea flour
Pinch of turmeric
About 2 tsp of milk
Mix all the ingredients together and rub on to wet skin instead of soap.

Start with Skinflash Primer Radiance Boosting Makeup Primer, then apply DiorSkin Nude Natural Glow Creme Gel in #40. I applied Tarte Dark Circle Defense Natural Under Eye Corrector in Medium-Deep to under eye area and applied Banana Powder from Ben Nye so eyes lifted without looking too light and unnatural. I then used Queen Collection Mineral Bronzer in Light Bronze and applied all over the face to create a light contour on the nose.
First spray legs with Dior Airflash Bronzer on her legs then apply Tarte Celebutante Dry Oil Shimmer Spray on top to add shimmer, it makes legs look slimmer.
First apply Smoky Shadow Blast in Bronze Fire the golden color on the lid and brow and the bronze color in the crease then blend so the color natural fades. Apply Green Glow Liquiline Blast on top and bottom lash line then blend with a small tapered brush to diffuse color. Lastly add 2 coats of DiorShow 360 Mascara to lock in lashes so they blend with the faux lashes, this gives a natural look. I completed the look with Milani Black Liquid Liner with a slight wing for that retro chic look of the 70′s.
I added Girlactik Heaven’s Dust in Gold in the inner corner of the eyes and cheekbone so it really made Keri’s face pop!
We wanted to mute brows so I used Dior Brow gel in Shiny Blonde which really lifted Keri’s eyes.
I applied Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour Blush in Tipsy on the apples of the cheeks.

Threading has long been popular in many Arab countries, and was well known from Indian and Persian culture, where it is known as Bande Abru (“Abru” means eyebrow, and “Band” is the thread). Threading the entire face is widely practised amongst Iranians, but it was originally only done when a woman was getting married or for special occasions. In ancient Persia, threading was a sign that a girl had reached adulthood and become a woman.
Practitioners use a pure, thin, twisted cotton thread which is rolled over untidy hairlines, moustaches and other areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair at the follicle level. Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove an entire row of hair, resulting in a straighter line. As a larger area of hair is removed at once, however, it can be relatively painful.
