Sonam Kapoor in Vivienne Westwood and Masaba at Cannes 2011

Hi everyone!

As most of you know, Sonam Kapoor made her debut at Cannes Film Festival this year in a  white and grey Jean Paul Gaultier gown.

View pictures of her debut dress and makeup HERE.

While the first look was a bit disappointing, her look in a Royal blue Vivienne Westwood creation for a L’oreal photoshoot more than made up for it!!

Love the color of the dress. The fabric and draping of the dress is flattering her figure and the heels add a nice touch. Love the hair and makeup, wish I could get a better picture! The shades add an element of mystery to this glamorous , sensuous look.

I liked this look best amongst all that she wore at Cannes 2011 followed by her debut look in the white Jean Paul Gaultier creation.

Sonam made some rather different choices of looks which is evident in the following pics –

I like the combination of sun kissed bronzed skin and orange lips but there is an unflattering overload of bronzer here!!

Sale at Inglot, free gifts at Maybelline and my new Facebook Page

Hi everyone!

Few updates –

Inglot, Mumbai is having a sale upto 35% on selected items. Got this info from Rashmi of Indyabeauty (Thanks Rashmi 🙂 !)

I called up to ask till when would the sale last. The lady on the other end of the phone said that she doesn’t know that herself but it will last another 3-4 at least.

Phone.No :  022 – 32986002

Address :  G 7 Mall Andheri(W) , Mumbai

I think its time for my first Inglot Haul! Have wanted to pick up Inglot Duraline since a long time now. For those not familiar with Duraline, you can read the review HERE 

Also, Maybelline is giving free gifts with purchase of Rs 700/- and above. For Rs 700/- you get a pair of sunglasses free, for purchase of Rs 1000/- you get the striped multi colored trousseau box(image shown below) and for purchase of over Rs 1500/- you get another slightly larger (and prettier!) golden trousseau box.

I personally find these boxes very useful while travelling. In fact on my recent trip home, I carried all my makeup in a Lotus Herbals trousseau box and non of my items broke or got damaged. I’ve had an experience of a broken MAC Sheer pressed powder once 😦

And lastly, I’ve just created my Facebook Fan Page…I’m still in the process of updating so it’ll take a little time for it to be complete. You can still view it and like it HERE. I’ve also added a link to my page in the sidebar. Suggestions and comments are most welcome!!

Sonam Kapoor Jean Paul Gaultier dress and Makeup at Cannes 2011

Hi everyone!

Cannes Film Festival 2011 saw the debut of Indian fashion Icon Sonam Kapoor who is a brand ambassador for L’oreal and is  known for her fashion forward style .  Sonam chose to wear a white gown by Jean Paul Gaultier. The makeup was of course by L’oreal makeup artists. Going with the modernistic design of the dress, black/gold smokey eyes and nude lips was the choice of makeup.

I like the dress (the hump at the back is beginning to grow on me!) especially the fitting at the top and the padding and gauzy fabric going over one shoulder all the way down to the arm.

MAKEUP! 

The two things I noticed right off were- firstly,  her face is looking a little muddy, not sun kissed! (too much bronzer or maybe darker shade of foundation?) and secondly, the eye makeup does not look very neat.

Since the dress has a very modern feel, smokey eyes and nude lips are the perfect choice of makeup but I do not like the choice of shades of eye shadows. I would have personally paired the black with a taupy silver shade, not gold.  L’oreal makup artists seem to be preferring gold over silver/gray (Remember Aishwarya Rai’s Day 2 makeup with the navy/white Armani Prive dress)

Like the nail paint!
