MAKEOVER STORY—HOW OUR BEAUTY EDITOR UPPED HER GLAM QUOTIENT
She’s our beauty editor but she hardly ever wears the label, mostly to be found with some lip gloss and a line of kajal. On good days (and Fridays,) she’ll take it a notch up by wearing eyeliner. But that’s about it. So imagine her surprise when we hustled her into a Drab to Fab Makeover at the Lakmé Absolute Salon at the Fashion Week.
 

Before

Face

On her face: Nothing except a moisturiser with SPF
Skin type: Very dry
Other concerns: Still significantly tanned from a beach vacation last month

During the makeover:
Here’s what our make-up artist at the Absolute Salon did:

 

Skin

Face

Thoroughly moisturised her skin with the Lakmé Peach Milk Moisturiser and allowed her skin to soak it in for a few minutes.

 

Hair

Face

The hair stylist suggested a waterfall braid that perfectly accentuated her natural waves and kept the hair off of her face.

 

Face

Face

Skin: Prepped her face with the Lakmé Face Magic Daily Wear Souffle in a shade closest to her skin tone. The Lakme Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick was applied just below her eyes to hide her dark circles and other dark spots on her face.

Eyes: Uniformly defined her eyes with the Lakmé Eyeconic in Black

Cheeks: Added a rosy tint to her face with the Lakmé Absolute Peach Blush Face Stylish Blush Duos (one shade to highlight her cheekbones and the other on the apples of her cheeks) Lips: Polished off the look with the Lakmé Absolute Pop Tints in Pink Sorbet

Changing my career to fashion at the age of 27 was a risk that I'm glad I took! I don't think there is any substitute for hard work. I can be overly shy and self conscious one day and feel like I can conquer the world the next. You have to try my caramel pudding and chicken soup and don't even dare playing charades with me—I'm super competitive. I love what I do and am always looking for a way to take it up a notch!
