Dia Mirza - The Porcelain Beauty and her Beauty Secrets

I always loved Dia Mirza even though she doesn't have that many films to her credit...As far as i have seen her she is always in impeccable flawless makeup and Apt dress for the occasion

So the post :)

Something About her

Dia Mirza was born in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh. Her father, Frank Handrich, was a German graphic and industrial fair designer, architect, artist and interior designer from Munich and her mother, Deepa is a Bengali Indian who is an interior designer, landscaper and currently does social work as a volunteer to help alcoholics and addicts. They separated when she was six years old. Her father died when she was nine and her mother remarried Ahmed Mirza, who died in 2004. She adopted her stepfather's surname Mirza and has recently adopted the last name of her birth-father and became Dia Mirza Handrich. Though she has been brought up in a Muslim household, she does not consider herself a Muslim; she is a Hindu and believes in Ganesha.

Also Dia Mirza to endorse The Body Shop brand

Her pictures speak of her beauty

Her Beauty Secrets in Vogue

I have combination skin, which can be both oily and dry, so I religiously moisturise twice a day with a waterbased hypo-allergenic moisturizer I’ve discovered from a French brand Uriage.

I start my mornings with warm water and fresh lime to detox. When I eat simple food without too much spice and oil, my skin stays healthy. I eat lots of fresh and wholesome fruit and veggies. Anything sin excess is a no-no.

I like to keep it simple. I use a light coverage of M.A.C Studio Fix foundation. I enhance my eyes with Bobbi Brown eyeliner, curl the lashes and then brush on mascara. I add a little shimmer from Make Up For Ever to highlight the cheekbones and finish with gloss from Bobbi Brown.

I don’t even step outside without sunscreen. Right now I’m using Vichy Capital Soleil with SPF 50, so my face stays protected for up to eight hours.

A tinted strawberry flavoured lip balm, a mascara and a techna kohl pencil, all by M.A.C

My signature fragrance is DKNY Be Delicious

I insist on using professional makeup and carry my own kit everywhere. Unlike other actresses, I can’t use thick Kryolan panstick; instead I use a liquid base and translucent powder from M.A.C Pro. I first learnt how to use make-up professionally

New Name to my Blog

Hello gurliesssss...
I thought its high time I change my Blog's name because initially started up this blog to show others how i harass a recipe which is cooked to perfection by others...
But now i am harassing makeup too...Since i have started posting in both categories..Its best to have a blog name that relates both..
So I came up with this
"My Cyber Kitchen and Makeup Madness"

So do you guys like it ?
Any suggestions on improvising my blog ?
Please pour in your thoughts :)

Oriflame Essentials Fairness Lotion Review

I got this Oriflame Essentials fairness lotion when this product was in discount and I wanted a moisturiser for my Oily Combination skin

Since this had Mulberry Extract & Vitamin E and it was for oily skin
I wanted to give this a try

50ml for Rs.89

So here is my verdict:


Its a lotion so it absorbs into the skin pretty fast
Non-greasy so thumbs up for oily skinned people
No break outs
I use this during my evening CTM
very very small quantity is enough for the whole face and neck
Priced reasonably
Travel friendly packaging
Oriflame products are not tested on animals


It has parabens
Did not make me fair

I would give a 3.5 /5

Will i recommend this ? Yes , its a decent moisturiser for oily skinned people
Will i purchase this ? Got one already

So which is your favourite moisturiser ?
Have you tried this product ?

and Maybelline Gel liner for Rs.325

Take the right amount to get the subtle glow
