Makeup is much more than just a mask to hide our flaws.
It is an art which cannot be mastered by all,
a profession not everyone can excel in.
Since the day I started using makeup, I realized how important of a role it can play in one’s life. It accentuates our high areas and makes us confident about ourselves than we’ve ever been.
I was honored by getting an invite from VLCC for Makeup Simply Awesome which was an exclusive event where theyunveiled the new glamorous bridal looks for 2017 with the finest Indian and International models. VLCC is a pioneer group in weight loss solutions and beauty treatments. They have been serving in over 236 locations in 122 cities and across 11 countries.
It was a star-studded affair with a lot of glitz and glam. The best of VLCC artists created looks for the ramp walk showcasing four different categories of Red Carpet followed by Vintage, Dramatic and the oh-so stunning bridal. Names like Rina Dhaka, Arjun, and Anjalee Kapur, Samant Chauhan, Nikita Tandon put forward their best couture pieces to even intensify the makeup looks.
The first theme, “Vintage” was an inspiration from the by 1950’s and 60s. That era talked about bright lip colors and exciting eye makeup which was beautifully justified by the VLCC Artists.
“Dramatic” looks had an edge over others with bold and outgoing makeup, focussing more on the styling to go with their inspiration from the “theater”. This was put together by Ms. Catrina Chiari, a renowned make-up artist from Italy.
The third theme, “Red Carpet” was curated for our Bollywood nights and inspired by our divas who sport these looks at high profile award functions and events. The hair & makeup was kept classic and chic with dazzling gowns.
The final look was the theme of the night, which was the Bridal Looks for 2017 which was conceptualized by VLCC to mark the upcoming Wedding Season. Some familiar faces from the industry took the stage in their glamorous avatar with their hair tied in a bun, chic middle parting and intense red lips.
When we couldn’t ask for anything more, Esha Gupta left us in awe by setting the stage on fire with her bridal makeover. Her entry was complemented by festive matrimonial music which certainly added in making the event a grand affair. She played muse to the renowned celebrity makeup artist Shaanmu.
I am glad to have witnessed the work and art they’ve put to make this show happen.
