The radical Radhika of weekend Ramblings

The My makeup Life series asks beauty biz insiders, bloggers, makeup mavens and artists to share their holy grail products, tricks, tips and favorite beauty tools. Is there anyone you would like to see featured in My makeup Life or questions you think I should ask? let me know here.

Name: Radhika Mohan
Location: Santa Clara, California, and when I’m in India, I call Bangalore home.
Day job/current gig: I work(ed) part-time, from home, for a medical transcription company — a job that involves a lot of typing…and chipped polish.
Hangouts online: weekendramblings.com, Instagram, Twitter, Google+, Facebook and Pinterest
Current favorite product: Dior Creme Abricot Fortifying cream for Nails. A little sticky and best used right before bedtime, but this cream sorts out any pesky dry bits around the nails almost overnight.
Beauty inspirations: clear blue skies and starry nights, my mom’s garden after a rain, and the best mood board of all — Pinterest!
One word that best describes your outlook on beauty: Simple

What makeup/beauty products can’t you live without?

This Indian girl can’t live without a black eyeliner, and my favorite is the urban Decay eyeliner in Perversion. Also, Bobbi brown Corrector (dark peach) and a good lip balm.


When did you start getting into makeup?

For the longest time, I had a 2-step makeup routine — Maybelline Mineral Power Powder foundation (which I bought mostly because it came with a brush) and a liquid eyeliner. trouble started about 5 years back when I discovered beauty blogs. A brief stop at a Chanel counter, and I got myself a brand new obsession!

What’s your best beauty time-saving trick?

Chanel Rouge Coco shine in Pygmalion and Bobbi brown Pot Rouge Calypso Coral
My go-to time-saving beauty trick is to use my lipstick as a blush. pick up the color either directly from the lipstick or from the lips and dab on to the cheeks. perfectly coordinated blush in a second! Or use a lip-cheek combination product like the Bobbi brown Pot Rouge.

What’s your favorite beauty tool?

Chanel eyelash curler, which for reasons unknown is/was a limited edition release. My lashes are quite straight, and I love how the curler gives them a naturally lifted appearance.

What’s the best beauty advice you ever received?

Eat healthy, walk a lot, sleep early. Of course, when it comes to actually following all that advice, I am a bit of a work in progress. :P

Cilt Bakımı rutininiz nedir?

Grab a cookie or two…this is going to be one long answer! My skin type is oily/combination-sensitive, and here’s what I am using currently.

Face wash: Olay Cleansing Cloths for oily-combination skin. These have salicylic acid in them, and the textured cloth provides gentle exfoliation to keep skin looking clean.
Serums: Chanel Resynchronizing line – Le Jour and La Nuit. The day serum has salicylic acid in it, and La Nuit — for the night — has hyaluronic acid. Both are light enough to use under my regular moisturizer and are perfect for my crazy skin type.
Moisturizer: lush dream cream (actually a body moisturizer meant for sensitive skin) for the day and Clinique moisture surge Overnight Mask for the night.
Eye Cream: Chanel Sublimage Eye Cream. I had always believed a good face cream would work just as well for the eye area, but after trying a couple of samples of this cream and noticing a difference in the darkness around my eyes, I gave up on the theory and bought a full-sized (tiny) jar.
Face masks/treatments: I am currently using the When Travelmate Essence sheet masks. And, Biore Pore Strips – a must-have for anyone who has a camera inches away from the nose!

For my incredibly dry lips, I depend upon the Fresh Sugar polish and the Rosebud Salve.

Güzellik adına denediniz en garip şey nedir?

I can’t call this weird as it is something a lot of people do, at least back home in India — use a mix of henna powder, yogurt, and egg as a hair mask. It adds in moisture to the hair and gives it a healthy shine, but I cannot stand the smell of eggs…and yogurt…mixed together. Sigh…the things I try on my hair!

Ticari markanız bakınız (saç / şekillendirme / makyaj)?


Brown eyeshadow, black eyeliner — I look sleepy-eyed without it — and a nude/neutral lipstick.

Used here, on the eyes — NARS Fez and night Porter, UD Perversion eyeliner.Lipstick — L’Oreal Nature’s Blush
Geriye bakıp kendinize, “Neden?!” Diye sormanızı sağladığınız güzellik kararları var mı?

I did try cutting my hair myself, ending up with a lopsided blunt cut that took ages to grow out.

Where are your favorite places to shop?

I do a lot of my shopping online, but in-store or online, I love to shop at Nordstrom and Sephora.
