How to Deal with Toxic People

How to deal with Toxic People

 

So we’re back with another Deep Beauty video, this topic was requested by a few of you- how to deal with toxic people or people that mistreat you.

 

First off let me say that I have been there. Many times. I dunno what it is that makes people feel like they can try and bring you down or why they’re so toxic in the first place. The only thing I do know is you have no control over anyone but yourself.

 

Let me repeat that-

You have no control over anyone but yourself.

Sounds like a basic concept but it’s one that took me years to fully grasp and let’s all be honest- I know I’m not alone here!

 

Toxic people are basically unhappy and unfulfilled and when you’re in that state, I mean how can you be good and how can you be happy for others?? Kinda makes sense when you think about it.
Anyways, here’s the video. I’d love to know if you guys have dealt with toxic people or have had anyone mistreat you and what you did to remove yourself from the situation?

 

 

My Alopecia Story

My alopecia story

 

Ok so this post has been a long time coming. You might’ve noticed I’ve been a bit MIA from the blog. This is due to various reasons, as I previously mentioned I’ve been working with a mentor, Lauryn Evarts from The Skinny Confidential (eek!). We decided I needed to take some time to focus more on my Youtube & Instagram for a bit.

 

The other reason, well if you haven’t been following me on social media, is because back in August I got hit with Alopecia. Alopecia Areata is a condition in which you lose your hair. Over the months of August to January my hair was falling out. Non-stop. Every single day. Some days would be less, some days would be more and a few days I had clumps falling out. Seriously one day it was as much as a baseball. I’d guesstimate I lost about 70% of my hair.

Needless to say it was an extremely stressful time. One of the many causes of Alopecia Areata is believed to be stress, so I decided to take any extra things off my constantly overloaded plate and go back to the basics. Hence cutting back on blogging.

 

I decided to open up about my struggles with Alopecia in hopes that it would help any of you out there that are going through the same thing. After all, the Deep Beauty message is all about helping each other out. I am going to post a lot more about my journey with Alopecia, what I’ve been doing to regrow my hair (yes it stopped falling out and is growing back in!) and all about my transition into healthy eating (still transitioning- it’s a bit of a process haha!).

 

Anyways if you haven’t seen the video, here it is:

100 days of makeup deepa berar

In case you’ve been wondering where all of my fresh content has gone, I’ve been living in Youtube & Instagram lately! In particular I’ve been obsessed with creating looks for the 100 days of Makeup challenge on Instagram.

 

Thought I’d share a few of my favs:

How to Stop Caring What Other People Think

how to stop caring what other people think

 

Hello 2017! I hope you guys are having a fantastic start to the new year, I know I am, can you tell by the smile above haha! The first topic we’re going to tackle is another Deep Beauty video, this one is tips on how to stop caring what other people think. I’ve had a few of you write in requesting a video like this and I finally bit the bullet and put my real thoughts into a video.

 

Oh and thanks so much for your patience guys, I really needed to take the time off from the blog to get myself into the Youtube/Instagram zone, it’s really helped a lot and now I am ready to get back to blogging! I’ve missed it but more than that, I’ve really really missed you guys. For 2017 I’ve decided I want to get more personal on the blog. I don’t know about you, but I can be a pretty private person, but if there’s one thing I learnt in 2016, it’s that no one ever gained anything from a closed book. So I’m here to share more of myself, my life, my struggles, my joy, anything to help you all with your journeys.

 

This video might be a little controversial, and I’m sure some people won’t agree with me, but this is how I live my life, everyone has the right to live theirs the way they want.

 

Here’s the vid!

 

 

Let me know if you guys have any requests! Oh and what are your new years resolutions? I’m dying to know!

Your Guide to Easy Holiday Hair!

easy-holiday-hair

 

Guess what…the Holidays are right around the corner!!! There is probably no one more excited about the holidays than me. Ok maybe a few people, but seriously, isn’t this the best time of year?! Everyone is in a good mood, all the houses and store are all decorated and not to mention all the parties! Seriously. Best time of year. Ever.

 

Now I understand that with all the parties comes that pressure to look your best, but don’t fret my pet, I’m here to help! I’ve put together a helpful guide to easy holiday hair. Like really easy. See there are these hair kits, and all you do is follow the directions on the box, and literally your hair looks like you paid a gazillion bucks to get it done. I know.

 

Onto the hair kits! Ok first up is probably the chicest, it’s the Goody Simple Styles Vintage Twist kit. Think super fancy office party. Works best if your hair is curled before hand, gives a gorgeous texture to the look and makes the style very easy to recreate. Seriously. All you do is gather your hair into a ponytail, roll the hair towards your head and pin in place.

Alright, the next one you might be familiar with. I used the Goody Simple Styles Fancy Fishtail kit in my Diwali Get Ready with Me video! Takes a minute to master this style, but I promise you, once you’ve got it down it’s sooo easy to do. Plus looks super cute with the gold beads.

 

goody-simple-styles-fancy-fishtail-kit

 

Ok talk about the easiest kit to use. The Goody Simple Styles Gibson Roll kit is literally a hair band with an elastic attached to it. 1 simple piece and makes your hair look like it took hours to do when it literally takes like 1 minute tops. Don’t believe me? Watch my appearance on CHCH Morning Live to see just how easy it really is ;)

I am obsessed with this look. I’ve been trying to figure out how to recreate this for ages, ever since Blake Lively stepped out onto the red carpet rockin this look at the Met Ball back in 2013. Such a cool style and sooo different from the regular beachy waves look. The Goody Simple Styles Bubble Pony kit contains a piece that has an elastic at one end with 3 mesh hair stuffers that help you create the 3 distinct bubbles. Genius.

This kit is for my girl that wants to nail down that effortless chic look. The Goody Simple Styles Downtown Bun kit is perfect for that messy bun look, plus it contains a pretty clip in flower if you want that extra touch. So pretty.

Which one is your fav look out of all of them? It’s so hard to decide!! Tag me in your holiday hair pics, I’d love to see what you guys came up with :)

 

How to Grow your Youtube Channel with Corey Weiss from IPSY

So recently I had the chance to sit down with the head of Business Development at IPSY, Corey Weiss and pick his brain on how to grow your Youtube channel.

 

Corey has worked in digital media for so many of the really big media companies, so he knows a thing or 2 about marketing and has helped the IPSY brand grow to where it is today.

 

If you don’t know about IPSY, it is the company co-founded by Michelle Phan, who is one of the very first beauty guru’s on Youtube and probably the most successful by far. She started this brand with a glam bag subscription program where beauty junkies can receive new product samples to try out every month. Love.

Also love IPSY open studios, a community created for beauty guru’s with events, mentorship, a facebook forum with tons of helpful tips and support, plus the chance to utilize their studios & equipment in Santa Monica. Amazing.

 

Anyways, here’s the video! It’s jam packed with a ton of really great insight :)

Glittery Indian Bridal Makeup Tutorial

glittery indian bridal makeup

 

Hey guys! So I know it’s been a while since I posted in here, truth of the matter is that I’ve been focusing most of my time on my Youtube channel and on my Instagram, but I know you guys want to see an update so I thought I’d share one of my fav videos I did recently!

 

It’s a glittery Indian bridal makeup look. I dunno about you, but I LOVE glitter. Makes everything look super pretty and totally makes your eyes pop. The glitter I used for this look is from Make Up For Ever, it’s their Diamond powder which is one of my favs. Each particle is pretty tiny, so when you put it on it doesn’t feel like this outdated, chunky 80’s glitter.

 

mufe-diamond-powder bronze

 

I used the MUFE Aqua seal to adhere it to the skin. It’s a clear liquid that you can mix with anything to make it waterproof. Genius. Basically I put a drop in my hand, mixed in some glitter, and applied to the eyes. Pretty simple stuff.

Anyways, here’s the vid for you guys. Let me know if you want to see more like this!
