That last fling before he slips on the ring is arguably one of the most anticipated moments before the big day. And if that ‘fling’ is an occasion to preen and party with the leading ladies in your life, then it doesn’t get better than this.

Sakshi wanted some heart-to-heart and a few hoots with her besties before she ditched the single life. A bachelorette at The Mansion House, Alibaug was exactly what was in order. The contemporary retreat tucked away in the lap of the Sahyadris was an ideal weekend escape for a celebration like this. “We spent the day indulging in all things girly and playing dress up! It was so much fun!” the bride-to-be said in glee.

The girls showcased not one but two fabulously feminine looks; playful and urban by day but by sundown, they were transformed into Grecian goddesses in ensembles that evoked the Greek myth!

L’Oréal Paris is synonymous with high quality and WeddingSutra Favorite makeup artists Meena Pithoo and Tejaswini used products from the brand to create for each young woman looks that were particular to their personalities and simply stunning! The L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipsticks, in particular, with their intense hydration and luxurious matte color, were the key highlight in perfecting each one of their getups.

The chic outfits from AND had the girls looking their very best and allowed them to paint a poised picture as they went about the day. Vineti Bolaki, on the other hand, brought the most breathtaking gowns made from flowing fabrics in pastel hues. The most perfect attire for the sundowner!

All good flings need some bling. An Valliyan was right there to add the same! The brand’s contemporary pieces elevated their looks with flamboyant modernity, and voila, the girls were ready to pose for WeddingSutra Favorite Kodoclicker's cameras.

Here’s what the girls had to say about their looks and their chill day at The Mansion House before they tottered into their sundowner.

“I could hardly contain my excitement when I got chosen for this. I knew this day would be fun, yet it managed to surpass my expectations!”

“Both my looks were very different from each other. The first one was very dewy and natural. With the second one we went darker. Tejaswini made sure each look was distinct from the other. All the products she used were ideal for long wear. I especially loved the L’Oréal Paris lip colors she used for me. The L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Gloss - 308 Shanghai Scarlet, was actually my favorite because it just glided on my lips and did not chap or make them feel dry. I have always loved the L’Oréal Paris Volume Million Lashes Mascara but now I’m hooked onto their lipsticks too!”

“I need to start by saying how much I loved my sundowner look! The clothes, hair, makeup, everything! The gown made me feel like I was about to walk down the red carpet. And it wasn’t just my gown. I liked the other three gowns worn by my besties as well!”

“Another thing I must mention is that Tejaswini’s makeup was on point. She used the L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte Lipstick for my day look and for the sundowner she applied the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Gloss. I loved the matte lipgloss so much that I even remember its color code. It's 318! I have never come across a better matte lip color. This one did not crack or chap at all.”

“All I have to say is that this was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had! It was my first photoshoot and I loved every bit of it. Working with all the teams was a breeze because of how cooperative and encouraging they were.”

“When I saw myself in the mirror with my makeup done using products by L’Oréal Paris’, I was in awe! I truly felt like a star and it took my enthusiasm a notch higher. I also really enjoyed getting my solo shots clicked. The Kodoclicker team was so patient and intuitive that it made the process all the more fun.”

“This day was so special and had so many great moments, but the one I will never forget was at sunset when we were shooting the sundowner pictures outdoors. The light was perfect, the four of us stood in a line and struck a pose but right when the photo was about to be taken we just burst out laughing for no reason at all. In that moment we were all so happy and the feeling was incomparable.”

“Everything about our looks was perfect right from our clothes to our makeup, but the thing that I loved the most was the jewellery by Valliyan. The designs were very unique and truly made a statement.”
