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.

Recreate Sonakshi Sinha’s camera-ready look

Blown over by Sonakshi Sinha’s boldly feminine and nuanced look? Here’s your cheat sheet to acing this look for your next celebration


To get Sonakshi camera-ready, make-up artist Heema Dattani focussed on creating a ‘no make-up’ look.With fresh-faced glamour still in demand, it was only natural for Dattani to choose a luminous finish. Revealing more, she shares,“I wanted her skin to look healthy and exude a natural flush while maintaining her skin’s inherent glow.As a bride, it is important to understand the needs of your skin and do whatever it takes to maintain its health—from keeping it well hydrated and moisturised to relying on home remedies that suit you.The healthier your skin looks, the better it will glow on your big day.” Glow is the big beauty buzzword for the season and so, a luminosity-boosting primer and a dewy light-to-medium coverage foundation are what you need to achieve a flawless base.



Dattani added a welcome pop of colour to the overall look by focusing on Sonakshi’s eyes. To mirror the vivid tones of the garments, she created a dramatic palette featuring shades of yellow,blue and green for a tantalising effect. Dattani elaborates, “I wanted to tie in the colours of the garments with the make-up. As a result,I opted for a shimmery wash of gold on the lids and topped it with bold sweeps of green and blue eyeliner.” Eyeshadow bearing rich jewel tones complement Indian complexion beautifully while adding instant glamour to a look.



The intense colours were complemented by hairstyles that relied on volume and texture. From ultra-chic loose waves to tightly coiled strands, Sonakshi’s hair was styled by Madhuri Nakhale, who wanted to emulate the glamour and shine seen in the garments and make-up.
