Glit­ter is all set to make a come­back

NOT MADE-UP NAV BRAR 28, Chandi­garh

The Start Armed with a diploma in cos­me­tol­ogy from the Na­tional Coun­cil of Vo­ca­tional and Re­search Train­ing in Delhi, Brar moved to Lon­don for a short stint as a make-up artist. Back in In­dia, she has been work­ing full-time as a free­lance make-up artist. Less is More She feels that the min­i­mal­is­tic Hol­ly­wood soft glam look is pop­u­lar in In­dia. “Even brides these days pre­fer to keep it sub­tle. The idea is to bal­ance the look by high­light­ing one fea­ture while keep­ing the rest min­i­mal,” she says.

What’s Trend­ing Brar feels that while Punjab may be veer­ing to­wards min­i­mal make-up cur­rently, things will change very soon. “Glit­ter is all set to make a come­back.

Thicker and longer lashes con­tinue to be in vogue as well (re­cently seen at the Chris­tian Dior spring 2018 show).”

Celebrity In­spired When clients come car­ry­ing their favourite celebrity’s photos, Brar cus­tomises the make-up ac­cord­ing to the clients’ fea­tures. “Whether it's eye make-up or lip colour, I al­ways make it a point to seek their opin­ion when we are try­ing to in­cor­po­rate el­e­ments of the par­tic­u­lar look they seek,” she says.

On My Face Brar likes nat­u­ral make-up. “Darker shades of lip­sticks suit me, so I keep the rest of my look sim­ple. I love ex­per­i­ment­ing with new trends ev­ery now and then. Make-up is an art, the more you ex­plore, the more you learn,” she says. Con­tact make­up­by­

TO­TAL FIT­NESS NEETI BHATIA 39, Zumba fit­ness trainer, Chandi­garh

About Her Neeti Bhatia started her ca­reer as an aer­o­bic and group fit­ness trainer and went on to be a Zumba fit­ness in­struc­tor. Decoding Beauty People striv­ing to lose weight come to Bhatia but she first makes them un­der­stand the im­por­tance of a healthy diet and a bal­anced fit­ness regime for an aes­thet­i­cally pro­por­tion­ate body. “Ma­jor­ity of women still have to un­der­stand that be­ing thin is not the cri­te­rion for a good body," she says.

Fit­ness Goals Bhatia does mus­cle en­durance work­out and car­dio three times a week each and stretch­ing al­most ev­ery­day. “I eat a bal­anced diet and my green juices and ba­nanas keep fu­elling me,” she says. Con­tact face­­baw­ith­neeti/
