Summer brights <3

Hello!

I have recently been crushing on my latest purchase from M.A.C. As you may know I’m a professional make up artist, so for me no amount of make up is ever enough. I always find myself digging into my kit looking for a particular tint-tone-shade of a lipstick/ lipgloss/ eyeshadow etc. only to realise that it’s missing and that I need to buy it. To explain my point better to y’all I will cite an example-

So ‘Red’ is not just one colour for a make up artist ( you must think I’m crazy). There are so many variations of the colour red- such as, coral red, blue toned red, pinky red, maroon red, rusty red etc etc…. the list goes on. I think now you must be getting the gist of what I’m trying to explain.

Anyhoo, so recently I felt the need to buy some nice bright shades for my lipstick collection. I bought 5 lipsticks, all of which are bright, bold and beautiful. M.A.C lipsticks are priced at Rs.1450 a pop. I know they are a little bit on the pricy end but for me they are like an investment as I end up getting a lot of wear out of them for myself and my clients.

Here are a few pictures of the summer bright lipsticks I picked up :

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;
