Embrace your colour, says Lankan

- By Ruqyyaha Deane

Known as Sri Lanka’s first beauty blogger, Roshani Kumarasing­he, the face behind ‘Beauty by Rosh’ wrapped up her Masterclas­s World Series session in Sri Lanka earlier this month leaving Colombo’s fashionist­as with tips and tricks of the trade to pull off that perfectly glammed look — be it subtle or as extravagan­t as one wishes.

“My time in Sri Lanka has been great. We had a masterclas­s which has been like the main event that we showcased - how to do your makeup for everyday women. It’s a series of masterclas­ses that I am doing all over the world - in Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Colombo, Bali and Bangkok,” Rosh tells the Sunday Times as she elaborates on the week she spent in the country.

Despite not having a profession­al background in makeup, Roshani has built quite a following on her social media platforms garnering even the attention of Vogue India.

“This year, my theme for the Masterclas­ses is based on smokey eye makeup because it has become my signature thing. For next year’s campaign it will be ‘All that Glitters’ as I have been experiment­ing with glitter and I love it,” Roshani laughs telling us that she has planned masterclas­ses in Sri Lanka annually and hopes to do masterclas­ses in L.A, New York, Singapore and two other, as yet undecided cities.

To end her week in Sri Lanka, that started off with a pre- glam event before her main masterclas­s that was held at Jetwing Colombo 7 and followed by an after-party at Ask For Fern, Roshani hosted a ‘Glam Night’ at The Chiller Room on November 6.

She showcased four makeup looks including herself whilst collaborat­ing with fashion designer Charini Suriyage, whose designs all four of the models wore.
