“Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical. ”
quote by Sophia Loren is a bit cliche. Because in current era where we all love to look good, just being beautiful does not guarantee that. No doubt we need to take a good care of our skin following a definite skin care routine, eating right to stay healthy and in shape and to say the least keep on grooming ourselves regularly. Recently I met Sandhya Oza, a style expert in Tanishq Bridal Event held in Bangalore. Sandhya has a smart and elegant personality and a very humble nature. It was such a pleasure meeting her and discussing beauty and style tips, preparations needed before attending a wedding or a big event and similar things.
Also met there beauty specialist Sarla from Lakme Studio who told me about current makeup trends, latest makeup technique being used and various Lakme bridal packages.
Few takeaways from discussion with Sandhya:
1-A full length mirror is a must at home, before you step out have head to toe stare at yourself to double check if everything is Ok.
2-Don’t die for a lighter skin tone, be yourself because that suits you best.
3-Choose makeup color and dress which is suitable for your skin tone.
4-Keep your dress and all matching accessories ready in advance to avoid any last minute hick ups
5-Do a trial makeup before any big event to check how the makeup looks on you.
6- Taking few photographs after your trial makeup will help you judge how your makeup looks in camera lights.
Sarla from Lakme studio also gave some pointers:
1-Beauty is a daily thing and not a one time event. Do take up time for yourself regularly
2-In order to avoid any makeup disaster before your wedding or an event choose your beautician wisely. Let them know your requirement and do a trial session with them
3-Choose a foundation which is one shade darker to you so that it blends with the body color and gives an overall lighter brighter look and avoids face looking too made up.
4- She suggested to use air brush technique for getting makeup done for a more even and natural look.
