VLCC ‘makeup’ Simply Awesome”

 

This Saturday, August 12th, VLCC opened its doors at the “Roseate House, Aerocity” to showcase its “VLCC Couture Bridal Look of 2017” and we had the pleasure of being a part of the same. The Beauty and Wellness brand introduced some really notable makeup looks which included the Vintage Look, Dramatic Look, Red Carpet Look and the Bridal Looks for 2017.

The looks were put together by top Indian designers and artists from all over the world.

The ‘Vintage Look’ was inspired from the retro fashion which calls for a bold look, including a bright lip shade and a winged eyeliner to make the eyes stand out. The models got to showcase the beautiful collection by Samant Chauhan, the very popular Indian designer,  VLCC’s Makeup team created this look very well and made sure every model looked outstanding, Second came the ‘Dramatic Look’,  this look was inspired from ‘theatre’   Rina Dhaka, one of the most popular Indian fashion designers, designed the attires best suiting the ‘Dramatic Look’ and they actually did work well, complementing each face. The third theme was the ‘Red Carpet Look’ that was inspired by the Bollywood divas walking at the red carpet, spreading glamour and glitter all over.

Last but not the least was the VLCC conceptualised ‘The Bridal Look’ for the upcoming wedding season. The outfits for this look was designed by the very famous Anjalee and Arjun Kapoor, they styled the VLCC brides into the gorgeous ones, along with the VLCC team

Also the shows host being a stand-up comedian, made the evening more bright with her constant puns and engagement, which had lightened up the evening.

On the ramp we witnessed some amazing makeup styles and a great display of designer wear collection. We also got to see the creative minds behind the painted faces as they walked the ramp with their models, turning them into real life Goddesses. The event ended with the Bollywood actress Esha Gupta walking the ramp as the Showstopper for VLCC.

Apart from makeup, the brand also announced a range of Beauty & Wellness treatments including, Botox, Weight Loss, Anti-Aging and more. However, a few of the treatments are only available after consultation with one of their experts.

 

We had a great time and we hope to see more from them very soon. A big Thanks to VLCC and the event sponsors Bausch & Lomb, BMW, L’oreal, Red FM, Shree Raj Mahal Jewellers and Gardens Galleria for making the evening soo special for us.

THE COLOUR & PRINT STORY

Lucknow’s first ever multicultural Indo-Western label , Hashtag Rani by AASTHA SAWHNEY, a very talented, young designer based in Lucknow, introducing her clothing line in the heart of the city.
The Label Deals in some multicultural and experimental inspiration, bringing a very different vibe to the city.
Aastha has currently been one of my favourite designers since we share a mutual love for #GoLoud.
If you’re looking for something absolutely out of the box with end number of choices in prints and colours drop in here since it’s the right place in town.
Coming to the outfits-
I decided to keep the accessories minimal in all the five looks that I created, since the prints and colours were enough to create the glamour.
You can also find some really cool and interesting angular silhouettes that create a very feminine and edgy look, something like I just wore below.
I picked up a tube jumpsuit with a pretty sheer poncho.
This is probably one of my favourite outfits in quite a while, because I’m loving the freshness of ditching darker colours and embracing such sea colours.

The second look that made me fall for was the navy blue Palazzo and crop top set, I was initially going to go ahead with just the dress as my final look, but I felt like the outfit needed something more, so I tried pairing it up with a sleeveless shrug/coat in the contrasting tones, I absolutely loved how both the prints and colours came out together, The mixing of textures adds that simple but edgy element to the outfit.

Since the collection is so powerful and vibrant and left me spoilt for choice, I knew I wanted this post to be unlike anything I’ve done before.
Let me know in the comment section what you think about these new looks I created.

Today’s post is about my recent makeover session at the Body Care&Cure Salon in my city(LUCKNOW), where they helped me have the perfect look for my recent shoot with Glitter Choli.

From natural to va va voom, their professional makeup artist created the look I always wanted to experiment with.

After a personal consultation, their experienced style team gave me choices in hair and make-up styles that perfectly suited my personality.

LOOK1

MAKEUP

The makeup included foundation with a base, along with a little contouring plus highlighting, they gave me very nude and subtle look all over that was complementing my skin and outfit. They used the best colors and shades for the eye makeup, that would suit best to my features.

HAIR STYLE 

As I wanted to keep it very simple and natural, they suggested me to go for a bouncy blow dry with the saree and yes, it did came out to be the way I imagined.

The makeup was soo well done that it didn’t wash off or even drain a bit in this humid climate and looked the same for the next 10hrs almost. Looking at the pictures above I’m sure you will absolutely want to drop in for a makeup trial very soon.

SECOND LOOK

They tried to give me a Red carpet look and imitate the old and classic Marilyn Monroe style with a simple eye makeup and lip shade.

Marilyn Monroe’s blonde retro waves, the pouty lips, and her sexy figure are legendary. Her hairstyle became part of her image and appeal. Did it ever go out of style?wavesMadonna, Amy McAdams, Paris Hilton, Christina Aguilera, Katherine Heigl, Michelle Williams along with a long list of stars have imitated Marilyn Monroe’s widely recognised hairstyle.

PINK PANTHER INSPIRED, hehe!

Hola Amigos !
What’s been up? Hope all of you chilling in the amazing weather these days sarcasm intended. So now that Mr. Sun has decided to literally fire us with scorching heat, it’s time for us to move to minimal easy breezy clothes and the first outfit that came to my mind was this pink dress from Zara’s latest collection that I wore during Amazon India fashion week’17.

I paired it up with a black buttock belt which I know you guys won’t believe ‘was MADE by me’.  and a pair of black boots from ASOS
I’d like to call this look a Pink Panther, not just because it’s one of my favourite colors but also because it’s one of my favourite movies as well.  (Also don’t forget to check out the BEFORE and AFTER look of the same outfit).
Until next time then.

Love
Kompal

ONLYxGARFIELD

ONLY Garfield

Back in the old days when Cartoon Network my daily soap, I used to love GARFIELD like anything. I mean Batman and Superman fighting crime and all is kinda cool but let’s agree that only GARFIELD had his life sorted. Lazing around in the bed all day while his owners fed him food #lifegoals.

ONLY has recently come out with a new collection dedicated to all GARFIELD fans around the world and you just can’t miss out on this one. Some crazy ass Tees, crop tops, jeans and what not. The whole collection has this crazy and quirky vibe to it.

I bought a white crop top from this collection recently and paired it up with the very casual ripped pajama’s, made sure that the look is easy to style and carry, making it a perfect look for your summer wardrobe by adding a cool head band to it, which changed the whole essence of this look.

For the love of GARFIELD, don’t miss out on this collection. You’ll regret it, Trust me.

Until next time then

Lots of love

Kompal
