Shimmer, Shine and Sparkle with Lakmé Absolute Illuminate
WeddingSutra in tandem with Make-up Maestro Cory Walia and his team of beauty professionals conjured up stunning ‘illuminated’ looks for bride-to-be Amrita and her bridesmaids. Their secret weapon? The brand new Lakmé Absolute range! Inspired by the shimmer and sparkle of precious crystals, these make-up essentials include shimmer lipsticks, brand new eye shadow palettes, coloured eyeliner and more.
Following the ‘less is more’ trend in bridal make-up, Cory and his team created flawless visages for bridesmaids Maahi, Trupti, Zuni and Tripti and then brought highlights of shimmer to each look.
Cory decided to bring out Dipti’s features with clever contouring. The team first prepped with Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Serum and then created a base with foundation and some contouring near the cheekbones. A smudge of gold from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette was used as the base on the eyelids and then the team created a bold, winged eye with the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Liner in Blue Sapphire. The finishing flourish was a touch of the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Lip Shimmer in Bronze Flake. Dipti’s hair was styled in soft waves with a side parting.
For Maahi, her face was prepped with the Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Lotion, which served as a base for a mousse and then a hint of blush on the apples of her cheeks. Over her entire eyelid, Cory’s team blended Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Liner in Burnished Brown, using the colour as an eye shadow. Mascara was added for drama. Her sun-kissed look was complete with Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Lip Shimmer in Rose Gold Dust. Maahi’s hair was styled with soft curls and pinned onto one side with a few bangs on her forehead.
Trupti’s enhancement began with the Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Serum followed by a liquid foundation base finished with compact powder. The Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in Gold was brushed onto the upper lid while the lower eyelid was highlighted with a hint of the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Lip Shimmer in Pink Flash. With fuller lips, Trupti rocked the Burgundy Beam of Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Lip Shimmer. Trupti’s hair was styled with tight curls and a bouffant in front.
After prepping Zuni’s skin with the Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Lotion, Cory’s team created a base with liquid foundation and a hint of blush on her cheeks. To highlight her eyes, they used the bronze and copper tones from the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette. She was given the sultry winged eyeliner to define her smokey eyes. Her look was complete with Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Lip Shimmer in Copper Spark. Zuni’s hair was styled in a boho-braid hair-band pinned on to one side and rest of the hair left to fall in soft waves.
