As part of our initiative ‘WeddingSutra on Location’, we invited four brides-to-be for a unique experience at Neeta Lulla’s Studio in Santacruz (West), Mumbai. Starting with a Style Consultation, a Makeover and a Photo shoot, each of the participants got to interact with some of the best names in Bridal & Wedding services.
Here in the second of the four-part series, bride-to-be Nikita Agarwal shares her experience with WeddingSutra on Location at Neeta Lulla.
“I had a busy morning so I rushed to Neeta Lulla’s store; I was actually a little stressed due to some work preoccupations, so I thought I would be done with the makeover and styling in two hours and then return to work. But once I entered, oh my, not only did I forget about rushing back to office, I was ready to spend the entire day there!
I first met Wedding Planner Neha Shroff who was very warm and helped me look at Neeta Lulla’s collection. My heart fell on a stunning electric pink lehenga with silver floral embroidery, which was paired with a pink choli and dupatta. After I tried the outfit, I loved it even more. We then looked at the jewellery options from Azva, I really liked their contemporary yet traditional creations and we decided on a gold jewellery set with pink stones to match my outfit.
It was one thing to wear the bridal ensemble and accessories, and another to look like one. Ojas, being the amazing makeup artist that she is, used just the right amount of makeup from Inglot to give me a wow look. Starting with a base for my face, she first did my eyes. She applied an eye make-up base, and on the eyelid she applied a mix of different eye shadows to contour my eyes and accentuate the eye shape. Then, she applied kohl on the inner and outer rim of the eye and finished by using fake lashes, and running a liquid black liner on the lash line to make it look more natural. For my lips, she used a natural skin color liner and a soft pink lipstick over it, and finished by adding gloss for a mirror shine effect. I was thrilled once I saw my final look. I felt so beautiful, happy and confident!
The last bit, was the most fun part of the day, the photo shoot with Candid Photographer Dev Purbiya. With his great talent and camaraderie, Dev ensured I was much at ease while I posed for the camera and he clicked away. What a day it had been, thanks to the special efforts by WeddingSutra and Neeta Lulla’s Studio.”
