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.

5 easy steps to look like an Indian goddess

Shaan Muttathil decodes how to channel your inner Indian goddess in easy steps with Huma Qureshi as muse

Step 1: To bring out the best of your Indian features, keep the makeup to a bare minimum. To give the makeup a sort of nude finish, start with the basics; the cardinal rules for a well-finished look: primer, concealer and foundation.
Pro Tip: Use the right brush. Remember: a dense brush works well for foundation and concealing, while a less dense brush works perfectly to blend, highlight, and apply your bronzer and blush.

Step 2: Next step, start with contouring, by lightly sweeping a matte bronzer across the main areas: under the cheekbones, mildly across the forehead and around the jawline. A slight flush of blush on the top of the cheekbones adds the finishing touch.
Pro Tip: A combination of bronzer and blush can lend you a natural finish.

STEP 3: All the while, the focus of Huma’s look was to retain a sense of warmth and natural flush. Make your lips the focal point of the look, by building on a flesh pink pigmented hue.
Pro Tip: When trying to ace a nude lip, remember: ashy, bleached hues are a big no-no. Opt for light pink, balmy buffs and warm brown tones instead. A hue that is one shade deeper than your skin tone makes for the right choice.

STEP 4: Strong, dark brows and a mild, near-to-nothing glossy, rosy pearl hue on the eyelids are perfect to finish off the makeup.
Pro Tip: Try not to make the end points too harsh or strong; aim to create an even texture that doesn’t look too stark.

STEP 5: To add some drama to the look, create big, bold and tousled hair to balance the fresh-faced makeup look.
Pro Tip: Always use heat protectant if you’re using heated tongs to curl your hair.
