This blog post will be helpful to everyone who is new to makeup and wants to adorn their vanity tables.
We all have that special place in our bedroom! Known as a “VANITY TABLE” or better known as “The Dressing Table” in our Desi culture. Where no maid or child is goes to without our eyes watching 👀 their every single move.🚷 I know I am like that.😹
Let’s talk about what should be on it , From major necessities to our prized posessions.
Let’s start off then…….
- Face Primer
It is kinda like a pre makeup base which helps fill up pores fine lines only till wash your face, of course.😔so that your Foundation applies seamlessly.Important if your event is for longer.
Factors to look for when buying one. For large pores and fine lines buy one which has silicone in it. Hydrating one for dry skin, Colour correcting one if you have uneven skin tone it will help neutralise the skin tone. Matifying one if you have very oil skin.
They say also check for glycerin in it. The more the it has glycerine the better your makeup will stick to it.(Heard that when nikkietutorials started promoting NIVIEA aftershave balm.
I have combination skin oily , with few dry areas with large pores. I prefer using a primer that minimises the appearance of pores and use a matifying makeup setting spray.But I personally don’t wear primer when going out casually.
- Color correctors
Color correcting is a very important step for balancing the dark circles pigmentation dullness and acne.
🍏Green [can❌cels] 🍎 redness
These are the two most used correctors.
Foundation most important element of your makeup #fakeup. Foundation comes in many forms liquid, mousse,Compact powder.
Liquid foundation is important above all. Foundation has two kinds of finish with dewy or Matt. I prefer Matt cause I have very oily cheeks and nose.
Compact I use for regular day time makeup.
Concealer should be a perfect match to you foundation but if your are using it got highlight get 1-2 shades lighter than your foundation shade. If you are using it two cover acne or dark spots or dark circles It should be thick in consistency I believe so that with a little application you can get full coverage.
- Contour kit:(I’ll write a separate blog on this)
I use Cream and powder both. Highlight & Contour was a game changer for me. I am still learning though.
- BB creams:
I personally don’t use it. But it’s good to travel with.Bb cream should be best if it has SPF in it.
- Translucent setting powder:
Must have for baking YO!Face👊🏻.translucent loose powder.
I find Liquid is not that necessary As I only use powder ones. Get it in shades or pearl and gold.
- Blush/Bronzer:Liquid tint/Cream/Mousse/Powder
Blushes I prefer to use powders and creams must have shades soft pink and soft orange.Bronzes I prefer to use in light caramel shade.
- Makeup setting spray:
Best thing invented in new age Makeup.After completing your make up before you apply your lashes and lipstick spritz this it will blend all that #fake up into one solid layer.
- Eyes Makeup (I’ll write a separate blog on this)
Must have honestly. Eyeshadow primer is a eyeshadow base which locks 🔐 in eyeshades and help boost pigmentation Making the colour show up vivid. But these things have low self life around 6months invest in small size if you don’t wear eyeshades on a daily base.Either use a white jumbo pencil,concealer or just your foundation. They work fine as well. But you need to get a glitter primer if you like working with glitter ✨ pigments.
Eyebrow products also another major part of modern day make up. I suggest getting a good pencil and eyebrow gel.
One should have bunch of basic eyeshadow kits in their vanities.
- Matt eyeshadow (necessity)
In shades of black,grey, browns,whites,reds ,mustard and ochers. In a palette or loose.
- Shimmer eyeshadow (necessity).
Whites,pearls,sands,gold and silvers.In a palette or loose.
- Loose glitter /Foiled eyeshadow (festive)
Gold and silver.In a palette or loose.
- Colourful eyeshadow 🎨
If you like vibrant colours on your eyes I suggest getting only These shades pinks,purples,greens and blues try getting them all in a kit.
- Black gel/pencil/pen
- Nude / White pencil
- Browns pencil
- Gold pencil/liquid
- Silver pencil/liquid
Black mascara that is lengthening, voluminous. Mascara wand I feel should be good. I like a plastic bristle one over a typical brush type.
Lashes(I’ll write a separate blog on this).
A pair of natural looking ones and a pair of dramatic yet wispy ones and also a good lash glue.
Lips 👄 / Lip liners (I’ll write a separate blog on this).
Lipstick/glosses/liquid matt/lip balms/lip tints
Must have shades.
Nudes,oranges,reds,browns,purples and pinks.

- Lash curlers

My take on Stuffed chicken/Ala kiev.🍗
- 2kgs Chicken fillets(18 -16 pcs)
- Flatten the fillets first with a stake hammer.
(Marinate for Chicken 1hr)
- Black pepper (according to taste).
- Salt (according to taste).
- Red chilli powder (according to taste).
- Ginger garlic paste 1 1/2 tbs flat of each.
- 1/2 cup Butter Milk.
To make buttermilk,
(I take 1/2cup milk add a dash of vinegar don’t stir let it set for 5mins it will get lumpy and your buttermilk is Ready!!).
- Mayonnaise 2-3 tbs.
- Mozzarella cheese 100g.
- Butter unsalted 100g.
- Salt to taste.
- Pepper to taste.
- 8-9 Green chilli medium size chopped.
Combine the above mentioned filling ingredients in a grinder/mixer.
Later add in a Handful of finely chopped.
- Fresh Coriander leaves.
Mix again by hand, Place it in a bowl n let it set in the freezer. (Its easier to work with when frozen).
This filling will be around 1cup.
I use around half of it for stuffing the chicken; According to the size of each fillet, how much one piece can hold while wrapping.
- Bread crumbs / Panko.
- 2-3 Beaten raw eggs.
- 1/2 cup flour.
- Sharp ended toothpicks (to secure).
- 3/4 cup of milk
- +1/4 of 200g cheddar cheese
- +Rest of the remaining filling
- 1-2 chopped green chilli
- Salt & pepper to taste
Cook the sauce until it thickens a little.
- Marinate the chicken with the given ingredients for one hour.
- Combine the ingredients for the put in the freezer to chill until hard.
- Prepare your work station for wrapping & coating the chicken.
Dust some flour on to a steel tray. Lay out the chicken fillet, add a tsp or more of the filling in the centre wrap it up secure with 1 or 2 toothpicks. Now first coat in flour then in beaten eggs and in the end toss & shake in a bag full of breadcrumbs. This way the bread crumbs stick evenly all around. Prepare all pieces in same manner refrigerate for a few hours.
- Shallow Fry them in 2cm full frying pano on a medium flame.
I hope i made it easy for you all.
