All the models want perfect skin, and everyone goes again and again to the mua’s till their base is absolutely perfect!

#

A gazillion pins go into the hair of the models and most of the times ‘Owwwww’, ‘Ouchhhh’   Áhhh”  ‘Wtff!!!’ is all you will here !

  • Really defined smokey eyes with a thick black liner were used backstage at Manish!  For a budget way to get this look- try the super affordable Lakme Insta -Liner.
  • There was a whole lot of Bronzer and contouring on the cheeks as well.
  • Bronzer doubled up as a fantastic crease color as well  and added depth to the look. Infact this whole look was done with just 3 products- a foundation, a bronzer, and a black liner.

  • Lots and LOTS of Braiding was happening back stage.
  • All the models got two french braids done on either side and then braids were joint together in a donut shape.
  • To make sure the braid is neat, the hair stylist rubbed some gel in their hands so  all the fly-aways were controlled!

  •  See that defined lip liner & Matte Skin ?
  • Definitely a common theme today- lips that were not completely nude, but more old world nude with a sheen and a defined lip.
  • Skin that was definitely veering towards a polished matte look rather than a glowy, dewy look !

Hopefully, tommorow i will get you guys a breakdown of how to achieve this look! Alsooo- i met Kajol and Neha Dhupia !!! And asked them some questions from P&B’s side ! All of that when we wake up tommorow ! Stay Tuned.
