PRIYANKA KAPOOR, HAIR & MAKE-UP ARTIST

Q. Must wear lip colour?

A. Don’t wear a prod­uct only be­cause a celebrity has worn it. Wear what suits your com­plex­ion. Lip glosses give a softer look to the face in com­par­i­son to a lip­stick. Rus­sian Red by M.A.C. and Am­bi­tion by Bare Min­er­als are pop­u­lar colours among brides.

Q. Must have beauty prod­ucts?

A. Nat­u­ral prod­ucts are the safest and work best for any bride. Amla juice taken on empty stom­ach ev­ery morn­ing for two weeks will give any bride the per­fect in­ner and outer glow she aims for, with­out any side ef­fects. Q. Key make-up ar­eas for the bride? A. An In­dian bride is never com­plete with­out great eye make-up. En­hance your look with kohl and mas­cara.

Q. Your ad­vice to In­dian brides-to-be?

A. The In­dian bride al­ways mixes fash­ion with tra­di­tion. Var­i­ous as­pects go into cre­at­ing the fi­nal beau­ti­ful im­age of a per­fect bride. Your hair, make-up, jew­ellery and cos­tume should all com­ple­ment one another. As far as hair is con­cerned, glam­our from the 50’s are all the rage while oth­ers are ex­per­i­ment­ing with con­tem­po­rary styles. Make-up should be sub­tle, but bold enough to high­light the best fea­tures of the bride.

Q. What are the in­ter­est­ing ways to wear one’s hair this wed­ding sea­son?

A. One can take a lot of in­spi­ra­tion from vin­tage styles. Be in­no­va­tive and merge the clas­sic with the mod­ern—waves and curls are al­ways in de­mand. By adding vol­ume and just a dash of colour, you can give your hair a whole new look. For easy and pop­u­lar styles, try vari­a­tions of the chignon and braids.

Q. What are your top five make- up tips for the brides- to- be? A. 1. Use shades to add em­pha­sis and depth and to il­lu­mi­nate your eyes. Medium- tone shades work best. 2. Be very care­ful while se­lect­ing your foun­da­tion. Al­ways se­lect the shade which is clos­est to your nat­u­ral skin colour. Never go lighter than that. Do not cake your foun­da­tion and make sure to blend it into the neck­line. 3. Re­mem­ber if you are a day bride, your blush should be soft. The blush should also com­ple­ment your out­fit. 4. Choose a lip­stick that matches your skin tone and out­fit. Don’t pick a shade just be­cause it looked good on some­one else. Also, do not to ap­ply frost or shim­mer to your lips. 5. Al­ways use wa­ter­proof mas­cara on your wed­ding day to avoid mas­cara smudges around your eyes and down your cheeks.

SONIC SAR­WATE, SE­NIOR ARTIST, M.A.C IN­DIA

Q. Which colour-pal­ette works best for In­dian skin tones when it comes to wed­ding make-up?

A. Warm me­tal­lic shades like deep gold, an­tique gold, cham­pagne gold, bronze and cop­per re­ally com­ple­ment In­dian skin tones. Also, shades of red, plum and wine suit us very well.

Q. Me­tal­lic tones are big this sea­son. Which wed­ding func­tion would be per­fect to in­cor­po­rate this look?

A. Me­tal­lic tones can be in­cor­po­rated in your make-up for any oc­ca­sion pro­vided it is used in the right way. Keep the metallics re­stricted to only one part of the face. Use matte shades along with metallics to cre­ate a greater im­pact. So if you are wear­ing me­tal­lic eye shadow, keep the rest of your face and lips matte.

Q. Black eye­liner has been a clas­sic for years, how can we demon­strate its ver­sa­til­ity?

A. Black liner has al­ways been an es­sen­tial part of In­dian make-up. Clas­sic liner has been trans­formed this sea­son by mak­ing it more graphic and fu­tur­is­tic. It’s all about in­di­vid­u­al­ity and mak­ing a state­ment. So whether it’s a clean line or a smudged smokey, the shapes are very graphic and edgy. Q. Any par­tic­u­lar colour shade you would like to rec­om­mend? A. Shades of red are re­ally big this sea­son. Keep it sim­ple and fo­cused on one fea­ture of the face. If you are wear­ing red on lips, keep the rest of your make-up more neu­tral. Use liq­uid foun­da­tion to get nat­u­rally glow­ing skin with a hint of nat­u­ral blush on the cheeks.
