It’s been a while since we have been brainstorming doing an indian style post on the blog. I was super inspired to do a Tanu-look especially after the amazing styling done in Tanu weds Manu 2, as we work on really finishing that look the same inspiration struck me when I watched Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
Rasika played by Kareena Kapoor was styled brilliantly, with print on print ethnic clothes. They did a good shuffle of long kurtas with chudidaar and short kurta with salwar. All of them with neatly draped printed dupattas. The kohl in her eyes and the typical bebo lined eyes just refused to get out of my head until i decided to try it out! Also for a few weeks now, we had been working on collaborating with one of Pune’s lead hair and Makeup artist Sabah Poonawala. So here goes our first bollywood decoded first. Yay! Hoping to bring you many more of these, especially something with Parineeti Chopra as uncountable people have told me that I look like her!
First, let’s talk about our Hair and Make up expert. Sabah Poonawala and Jugni & co are working on doing a series of ‘How to’ posts, so you tell us what would you like to really learn in terms of make up. The top of my list is How to do smokey eyes, and how to contour and highlight! Would you like to learn them too? In this look Sabah has lined my eyes beautifully without the wing, just followed the shape of my eye and let it look natural. She describes this look as an ideal for daily style, or casual get togethers. The products used have also been mentioned below the pictures to watch this space closely! Also follow her for more updates here and here. You can also check out her website, here.
On a separate note, shooting in ethnic wear of this sort made me feel like i’m shooting for one of the catalogues that we see at our local tailor’s, you know actresses that pose in typical salwar kameez and then we pick it from brochures and old school magazines! Also it was an insane feeling to have someone check on my hair and make up almost after every shot, keeping the strands away and the look correct to the T. Together with our readers this is definitely a level up for Jugni & Co. Hope you can feel it too and help us do more and better content generation in the coming future.
About the outfit: A basic suit material custom designed with a twist! Ditch the dupatta and use it in the yolk of the kurta to add the print and texture, i have worn enough leggings and salwars hence gave these fitted pants a try. Like what you see?
What I learned with this makeup look:
Always put base on your lips too, it brings out the colour better.
Don’t always wing out your eye liner, save that for the days when you want to dress up formal.
Dont be afraid to experiment with bright and bold lip colours even if it is a casual day out, you’ll be surprised at how fresh it makes you feel and look <3
Don’t be shy to try out sunkissed cheeks, suck your cheeks in to find that spot and blend away just a hint of colour, it makes world of a difference to your beautiful face.
The water line of your eyes needs a Kajal, the bottom line is just below the water line which needs a gel liner for more impact.
