With Thanksgiving just around the corner, the biggest and best shopping day of the year is nearly upon us: Black Friday.

That’s why we’ve chosen our favorite holiday makeup deals just for you, our Luxe fans. Better still, we’ve paired these heavily discounted makeup steals with Luxemi looks you’ll look fabulous in this holiday season (which, by the way, are 20% off on Cyber Monday)!

YSL + Luxemi

Yves Saint Laurent, one of our favorite luxury makeup brands, is offering 20% off plus free shipping across its website. We especially love YSL’s Volume Effet Faux Cils waterproof mascara in signature violet. A little violet mascara is the perfect compliment to Luxemi’s wine salwar with shell embroidery.

Sephora, Bare Minerals + Luxemi

Sephora is offering a ton of Black Friday deals, with great makeup being offered for only $10. Our favorite ten-dollar deal is the Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals Let It Glow set, a two piece kit for a perfect touch-of-sun glow (a $42 value!). The deal goes live on Black Friday and is sure to sell out, so make sure to take advantage of it and other killer deals from Sephora. Want the perfect salwar to accent your new glow? Try Luxemi’s Shimmer Georgette Salwar by Nikasha.

Rain + Luxemi

Ready to indulge your inner beauty queen? Rain, the official makeup of the Miss America pageant, is perfect for when you want to make a more dramatic makeup statement. Now through the end of Black Friday, Rain is offering 40% off everything on its website. We particularly love Rain’s Silky Duo Eye Shadow in Samba and Woo, which pairs perfectly with Luxemi’s tonal saree with paisley detail.

MAC + Luxemi

Forget Black Friday, it’s time for Grey Friday! To celebrate the biggest shopping day of the year, MAC Cosmetics is releasing Grey Friday, a special duo of silvery black lipstick and polish available to shoppers only on November 23, both online and in stores. Make sure to pick up this exclusive line before it disappears along with Black Friday deals. Use this glamorously grey duo to amp up Luxemi’s black and white jamdani saree by Neeru Kumar.

We wish we could have had all our Luxe fans with us last week when we took over New York City for Luxemi’s spring photoshoot — that’s why we made sure to document the two-day trip just for you. Here’s a behind the scenes look at our Soho adventure and the fabulous fashion photos you’ll be seeing around Luxemi soon!

After touching down in NYC, the Luxemi team set up shop in Soho and the amazing Pod Hotel. We had photographer Mike Fortner, hair/makeup artist Jenni Higgins, saree stylist Kavita Shah and PA Sunishi Tolia on board to make sure our gorgeous model and our sarees shone. The team killed it!

Even a dark sky and the threat of rain couldn’t keep us from capturing some amazing photos of the beautiful Vasanthi Sara (who has shined in some exquisite  Vogue photoshoots!) in Luxemi. Our unofficial themes were “gypsy bride” and “modern Indian,” and Vasanthi totally rocked both vibes during the two-day photoshoot.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month – Rock Your Pink Saree

The fight against breast cancer unites women around the world every October. But if you’re an Indian woman, you have all the more reason to show your support this Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Statistics show that over the next few years, a breast cancer epidemic in India is going to put our mothers, sisters and female friends and loved ones at a much higher risk for this tragic disease. Join Luxemi in spreading breast cancer awareness by rocking your pink saree this month.

india breast cancer rates

About 90,000 Indian women die from breast cancer each year, making it the leading causes of death for women in the country’s urban areas. And by 2020, the World Health Organization says 1 in 8 Indian women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime.

With numbers like that, it’s no wonder that celebrities like Sonam Kapoor and major organizations like the Forum For Breast Cancer Protection are stepping in to teach the public about early detection strategies. If you haven’t seen the NGO’s short film, “We Can Defeat Breast Cancer,” you should definitely watch it now: it shows how to give yourself a breast exam and provides a ton of useful information about breast cancer prevention.

Wearing pink is one of the most symbolic ways to show your support for the fight against breast cancer. Don’t have a pink saree in your closet? You’ll embody the breast cancer pink ribbon in our “Tied with a Bow” Georgette Saree, which has a rosy pink hue and delicate gold ribbon borders. To make a more vibrant display of your support, we’re loving the details and punchy vibe of this Barbie Pink Saree with Crystals. And if you prefer softer pinks, Luxemi has two sarees made for you: this artsy Peach and Pink Ombré Bollywood Saree with Sequins and this Georgette Saree with Beaded Waves.

To complete your pink look, Luxemi loves this regal Victorian Pendant Set with Pink Stones. And this Victorian Pink Tourmaline Set is one of our favorite pieces in Luxemi’s accessory collection. Between its chic, 1960s inspired brooches and intriguing hanging earrings, this set is the epitome of classic femininity.

Luxemi loves fashion with a social conscience. Have you rocked your pink saree  this month? When you do, send us a photo and we’ll feature your look on Facebook!

Chicago Global Runway Fashion Show: June 24 – 25!

Chicago Global Runway Fashion Show + Luxemi

What do you get when you mix the latest Indian fashion, an incredible location and a good cause? The 1st Annual Chicago Global Runway fashion show, a South Asian fashion experience taking place June 24th – 25th at Preston Hall at the Chicago Cultural Center. Luxemi is excited to be a promotional sponsor of the event, which showcases international and local fashion designers including Payal Singhal, Reveti, Khoobsurat by Mani Kohli and AKIRA.

In addition to a fashion show, the event features a silent auction as well as a gala, the perfect place to wear one of your favorite sarees or salwars from Luxemi. At the silent auction, make sure to bid on Luxemi’s contributions: 1) a rental credit from Luxemi worth $250 which is good towards borrowing anything from Luxemi’s closet and 2) one of our favorite pieces, the Modern Kundan Set worth $358! On Saturday, June 25th, there will also be a pop up show at Hotel Allergo, where you can buy your favorite pieces from the fashion show and even meet with the designers.

But here’s the best part: proceeds from the event will go towards Save A Mother (Save a mother. Save a family. Save a community.), a not-for-profit organization that provides healthcare solutions to the poor in India. Since its inception in 2008, Save A Mother has worked with over 854 Indian villages to reduce maternal and infant mortality. By spending only $100 per village, its team of 2000 activists has successfully reduced maternal mortality from 645 to 65 and neonatal mortality by 41 to 9, all in just one year.

An event dedicated to high fashion and a noble cause? This is a Luxemi must attend event. There are only 300 tickets, so make sure you pick yours up before they sell out. You can purchase them at www.chicagoglobalrunway.com or call 312.715.8809.
