"To complement the beautiful linear silhouette of Bibhu Mohapatra's gown we decided to go with an edgy smoky eye and a neutral-coloured mouth," she said, of the makeup.
Skin: "The skin was prepped with a hydrating moisturiser to start with and was followed up with Photo Finish Primer from Smashbox." recounts Saini.
She followed through with Bobbi Brown Luminous Moisturizing Foundation in Warm Natural. Saini used M.A.C Stippling brush to make the foundation sheer. "This makes the foundation look like second skin. As Anushka has great skin, I wanted to keep it looking that way." says Saini. A minimum amount of M.A.C Pro Longwear Concealer and setting powder completed the skin routine.
Eyes: Saini started out with M.A.C Cream Colour Base in Hush to create a creamy base for the eye makeup.
"I used Black Track Gel Eyeliner from M.A.C to line the waterline and the inner rim of upper lash line to create depth." says Saini. She then used the same eyeliner on upper lid and blended it till the crease. This was topped with M.A.C Eyeshadow in Carbon, starting at the lash line moving upwards and stopped just short of the crease to keep it from getting too goth.
The lower lash line was then darkened with the powder eyeshadow and smudged with a small blending brush to create a smouldering effect. "I also went back with a black kohl pencil on the waterline to strengthen the black inside the eyes." says Saini.
Cheeks: The cheeks were slightly contoured with M.A.C Mineralize Skin Finish in Dark.
Saini followed this with a combination of a pink and peach blush to give Sharma's cheeks a healthy look. "I highlighted the cheekbones with M.A.C Cream Colour Base in Hush to give the skin a dewy appearance." says Saini.
Lips: "I did not fuss much with the lips " says Saini, who moisturized Sharma's lips with Lip Mender from H2O. She then filled it Bronzelle, a nude lip pencil from Lancome and topped with Clear Lipglass from M.A.C "
