Makeup Faux pas to avoid!

»Posted by on Nov 25, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

Makeup Faux pas to avoid!  1. Foundation– Never buy a foundation 2-3 shades different from your skin tone. Test it on the jawline and select ones with yellow undertones instead of pink. Match the concealer with your skin tone and opt for a foundation that’s a shade lighter. Blend it starting from the forehead using circular motions. 2. Eyebrow error– You will never get makeup right with droopy, horizontal, extra dense or thread- thin eyebrows. Ask for them to be shaped in a arch so that there’s enough space for eyeshadow and highlighter. 3. Blunder blush– Don’t go overboard with blush.  Use a light hand on the apple of your cheeks, tip of the nose and forehead. 4. Eyeshadow overdo– Wearing a rainbow of shades won’t...

Misunderstood Priorities

A doctor knows best- that a one off fever needs a different treatment then a common/frequently occurring fever. Of-course a frequently occurring fever will need chronic attention into the reasons and detailed analysis. A doctor will not bother you with detailed tests when a one off fever bothers you.A special one off occurrence needs different treatment than a common occurrence- This is the principle. Unfortunately, a lot of the wrong choices in terms of actions that we take are to do with misapplication of this key principle.  A day gone wrong and we start looking for corrective measures, point is that not every failure should make you want to deeply correct what you are doing. Mistaking a special occurrence for a common occurrence may tamper the whole phenomena...

Clothes Make The Woman

These are some of the messages that we send to the outside world based on what and how we wear our clothes. This may not seem fair, but we may not be aware when people form perceptions before we even get a chance to speak. Let’s accept that we too knowingly or unknowingly compare and evaluate others based on the style of clothes they wear. Every morning when you pick a dress from your wardrobe, you are ready to convey a message about who you are, where you are going and what you do. We often present a perfect image when meeting someone prominent – a good friend, colleague, relative or a job interview. We are conscious and dress the part as we want to look our best. Often we observe that we care less and dress in a relaxed state when we are with the rest of the...

At the end of the day, it’s about…

At the end of the day, it’s about…. …About consumers in retail bank and kids in schools…..Customers. Yes Yes Yes.  But – you see these are results that we aspire for, but we have little direct control over them. What we need is a model that links these results with the critical means or specific things in control. Leadership today is plagued by not wanting to dwell too much into the means and is happy to just measure and preach its commitment to achieve results. Example – leaders review customer satisfaction with banking products or assessment scores in a school. During the review they ask for enquiry into superficial indicators like – which parameters are low, which subjects, customer base, teachers, kids that scored...

Revenge on the Innocents

»Posted by on Jul 5, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

I’ve come across several people who speak their mind and do so bluntly. While they equate their bluntness with being forthright, but others correctly conclude this as lacking intact. This always becomes an obstacle in relations with others. The bluntness is usually regarded as being individualistic and discourteous, much against the required code of conduct of mutual respect.  Why people lack tact? – In a sense, these people are not discourteous but just uncourteous. They do not recognize the need for courtesy in their association with others. I believe they are on the prowl for revenge. They are inflicting revenge not to people who’ve injured them in the past, but on innocent people. This feeling of revenge could be deep rooted from sufferings...
