Here comes the bride :)

Hello!

Being a make up artist by profession I often get the opportunity to prep & dress brides for their special day. The other day this got me thinking about how blessed I am. I’m in a profession where I get to contribute a little something in someone’s big day. The look that I see on the bride’s face as I finish her make up and she puts on her jewellery and gets into her wedding day outfit and finally looks at herself in the mirror, that moment is the most gratifying moment in my line of work. The sheer glow that comes from the happiness on her face says it all!

I recently did make up for my client Shradha Jain for her wedding day, she truly made the prettiest bride. So I thought that why don’t l do a blog entry de-coding the look that I did on her. So here is a full list of the products I used to achieve this lovely feline look for Shradha;

Face of the day #1

Hello!

I thought I will do a #fotd ( face of the day ) post today. Yesterday night was just one of those nights when one feels like doing the whole glam-shabang.

You know what I mean, when you wanna spend an hour or so just doing your hair and make up. Make up is my numero uno vice. I love it, applying make up on myself and on others brings me a lot of peace and creative satisfaction. So basically I’m one of those girls who either will not make the slightest effort to look even presentable, I mean either you will find me in my track suit+converse+high pony tail, the complete non fuss look or else you will find me all dolled up. So there is just no middle ground/path.

So whenever I do decide to wear a full face of make up I leave no stone unturned. I then enjoy each and every step of it. I have always preferred to highlight and focus on my eyes more than any other feature.  I spend the maximum time doing my eye make up and everything else I wrap up quickly in 5 minutes. I guess that’s pretty much the case with everyone ( right? ).

So here are a few pictures of the products I used and the look I ending up wearing on my face.
