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.

Glam up like Athiya Shetty

As radiant skin commands the beauty spotlight this season, we give you the inside scoop on recreating Athiya Shetty’s decidedly fresh cover look


Focussed on creating a visual that appeals to the Gen Z bride, hair and make-up artist Clover Wootton shares, “Skin that offers a natural glow has been ramping up intrigue like never before. The new-age bride has given glossy, glowing skin a nod and nothing is more contemporary and ethereal than make-up that doesn’t look made up. To channel this modern mood, I used a lot of highlighter and a glowing cream blush. I steered clear of using a heavy foundation and powdered products. The idea is to create a fresh and light visual while enhancing the beauty you are born with.”

PRO TIP: Keep it natural! Using too many powder based products or caking up the make-up can make the skin appear tired and aged.



Of her minimalist approach to Athiya’s cover look, Wootton reveals, “Personally, I prefer not to go the whole hog, and so, I avoid creating dramatic eyes, fluttering lashes, a bold pout and strong contour, all at one go. I prefer veering to the more natural side of things. However, if you want to highlight a feature such as your eyes, for instance, then it is advisable to have natural skin as a backdrop.

PRO TIP: Well moisturised skin and lips is the key to a more natural look. For a healthy glowing complexion, be sure to hydrate and eat and sleep well.



Getting your hair party ready is undoubtedly a big part of the routine. Wootton reports,“I tonged her locks to lend them a natural, light and fuss-free wave. I wanted her to be able to run her fingers through it without a worry.

PRO TIP: Avoid using too much hairspray as it can restrict movement and make your locks look stiff.
