Nothing gets us excited quite like some backstage gossip before a fashion show. Now that the much awaited Lakmé Fashion Week Winter Festive 2019 has started *excited squeal* we found our way to the backstage and fittings, to fetch you some inside scoop (thank us later). That is where we caught hold of celebrity MUA Namrata Soni, who’s doing the beauty looks this season and sat her down for an exclusive tête-à-tête.

Read on as she spills the beans on—makeup trends that will be huge this season, on how she manages last minute slip-ups and more...

BB: What do you love most about makeup?

NS: I love how it gives women confidence and transforms faces.

BB: Where do you get your inspiration from?

NS: From every living thing that’s possibly there on this earth.

BB: What do you keep in mind when you are creating a look for a client/celebrity?

NS: For me, the biggest thing is that I enhance their natural beauty. It’s best to make them look like a prettier version of themselves, rather than someone else.

BB: What is your signature look, and what is special about it?

NS: Liner and red lips!

BB: What are some of the most interesting makeup projects you have worked on?

NS: I have been lucky to have worked on great projects. I think I have done some great work with Sonam (Kapoor). Cannes has been amazing for me for the last seven years and with my academy for which I keep creating different looks. And, now I am working with Lakmé for LFW which is incredible. 

BB: What is your favourite makeup look from international runways?

NS: Dewy skin and Ombré lips are really beautiful!

BB: For girls on-the-go, what is an easy way to convert a day time, office look to a night time, party look?

NS: Carry a red, orange or pink lipstick for a hint of colour on the lips or keep a smudge-proof black eyeliner if you like dramatic eye looks.

BB: What are some makeup products that a girl should never be caught without?

NS: BB cream, eyelash curler, mascara, cheek and lip tint and a kajal pencil.

BB: Who’s makeup you think is always on point?

NS: Meryl Streep!

BB: How do you manage last minute makeup slip-ups before the show?

NS: I keep lots and lots of cotton buds and cotton pads to fix it.

BB: What beauty trend you think should make a comeback this season?

NS: From glitter to graphic liners, everything is there this season.

BB: What are some beauty trends we are going to see FW’19?

NS: A lot of colours, graphic liners, and a lot of fun things!
