Model Transformations at NYFW

New York has taken centre stage these days. The New York Fashion Week concluded recently, announcing to the world what it should be wearing in Spring 2015.


Chill has started to set in the air and we are bracing ourselves for a winter now, however, thinking of Spring is such an uplifting thought. Know what is even more joyous? TGIF! Yes, the weekend is upon is.  


All fashionistas must be tuned in to what sartorial styles, cuts and colour walked down the ramps in the past week, to start planning their spring wardrobe. Same goes for beauty mavens and make up artists who take their cue from the catwalk make up and nail trends. But you know what caught our fancy the most? This photo-feature in the New York Times’ T Magazine, featuring models’ ‘Model-morphosis’.


Models, they are just like us, rehearsals, late nights and work leaves their skin looking dull too, just as lack of sleep causes dark circles under their eyes as well. Everyone needs a make up artist to work their magic on faces to make them look flawless and gorgeous…


We leave you with these model transformations, if you find an inspiration and do wear a look based on these, we’d love to hear from you. Tweet or Instagram us!


Enjoy the weekend!

The 1-2-3 Of Perfect Moisturizing

Truth is, we don’t want to say bye to summer yet, however one cannot deny that Fall is upon us and winter is sure to follow. With winter comes dry skin and dehydration. Do you wait till the last SOS from your dry skin to moisturize, or do you take care of your skin all through the year, easing your way into a heavy-duty moisturizing routine come winter?


At Vasanti we like to be prepared, which is why we have this quick 1-2-3 from our night time routine.


1. Exfoliate: Brighten Up!

Our best-seller, Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator never fails to get rave reviews. We perfected the formula and packed powerful, active ingredients that deliver results from the first time you use Brighten Up!


Your skin needs to be cleared of all surface debris – dead skin cells that cause dull, lacklustre complexion- to reveal newer skin underneath. You also need a clearer, smoother surface for any skincare you apply to be able to penetrate into the skin for maximum efficacy. Brighten Up! leaves your skin squeaky clean for all conditioning treatments that you want on your face.


Make Brighten Up! a part of your weekly exfoliating routine and know what true glow really is!


2. Moisturize: Monoi Magic

We found inspiration in the glowing, fragrant skins of the French Polynesians for Monoi Magic, our multi-purpose oil blend for face, hair and the body. You only need a few drops of this wonderful oil to dab across the face, on your hands and feet, as well as the hair.


Pure coconut and sandalwood oils are infused with the essence of Tahitian Tiare flower so your skin can stay smooth, soft all through the year.


3. Treat: Eye Wonder


Another of Vasanti’s bestsellers, Eye Wonder Triple Action Peptide Eye Cream should be your last special skin treatment at night. Our customers love it throughout the year, not just winters. Why? It’s the magical formula, with active peptides and botanicals that treat dark circles, fine lines and puffiness under the eyes, this cream packs a punch. Eyes look rested and fresh all the time. What’s more, you can dab this light-weight cream all over your face as well, with peptides and a blend of anti-aging marine algae, Eye Wonder boosts skin’s natural collagen production.


So there, that’s how we beat winter skin issues. What are your fall and winter plans?
