About Me
Kalki through the looking-glass

As we entered Amy Billimoria’s House of Design in Juhu, Mumbai, we knew we were not in Kansas anymore. The store exudes a happy feeling. From the décor of the store to the clothes housed within it, we could tell that this was going to be a departure from a traditional bridal makeover.

About Me
Sonam and Paras Modi share their marriage mantra…

We met at a common friend’s wedding in Lonavla, after which we started meeting almost twice a week with friends. We got along like a house on fire; it felt so comfortable talking to each other, it was like we were long lost friends. The initial courtship felt more like a game of hide and seek. We didn’t want to tell people yet as we were still getting to know each other.

Nail the traditional diva look

Want to look like the classic goddess on your wedding day? Learn the tricks of traditional makeup without going overboard

Go glitter

The base is very important to begin with, so select the colour of foundation that is closest to your natural complexion. If you wish to create the illusion of a flawless skin, use a primer and concealer. Veteran makeup artist Ojas Rajani says, “For a traditional diva look, get inspired by the idols and portraits of the goddesses. They have a beautiful shade of fuchsia pink on the lips and glitter on the face. You too can bring on that natural glow by using shimmer on the eyelids and gently contouring your face with strobing.”

Drama with elegance

Celeb makeup expert Namrata Soni suggests, “For traditional makeup, use coloured kohl pencils. Select a brown, indigo blue or forest green shade to outline the eyes and use them inside the waterline as well. It will create a lot of drama along with just the right dose of natural elegance.” Also, in order to balance the overall look, go easy on the lips with shades of pink or peach to complement dark eye makeup.

Focus on a single feature
Makeup expert Brendon de Gee says, “Focus on one strong feature of your face and play it up. If you wish to draw attention to your eyes, simply tone down the lips and vice versa. Also, if you have small eyes, avoid using kohl pencil inside the eyes. Instead, you can draw a line close to the lashes and use a white or nude shade eye pencil in the waterline to make your eyes appear bigger. Finally, with loads of mascara simply brush out the lashes.”

Use a spoolie brush to remove excess makeup products from your brows and define their shape to suit your face. Wearing a bindi on your forehead will complete the goddess look beautifully.
