My Best Friend Shikha’s Wedding
With L’Oréal Paris and WeddingSutra Favorites, Shikha and her tribe embrace the summer spirit and the bohemian vibe!
Romantic, ethereal, easy – three attitudes together conjure up one aesthetic, bohemian! It’s a trend that millenials adore and it gets more appealing when applied to this generation’s other favorite thing – brunch!
Shikha is your quintessential summer bride and along with her favorite girls, she threw the ultimate al fresco party that will have you fall in love regardless of whether you’re looking for inspiration or just some gorgeous pictures.
As the seasons shifted and temperatures soared, the girls had mercury rising as they stepped out in outfits by Mahima Mahajan. The ensembles were characteristic of summer styling – floral patterns, accented by delicate embroidery. The girls’ season-smart makeup was by Vrinda Makhija and Tabeer Amrohi who created wonderful looks using premium products from L’Oréal Paris. The L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Matte Lipstick is packed with deep pigments giving their lips a flawless finish. The brand’s long-wear formula was victorious even in the heat of the afternoon sun. Before the final reveal, the sparkle in their eyes was matched with shiny baubles from Labels of Love which are a perfect blend of ethnic and contemporary aesthetics.
The lush open spaces of JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar served as a beautiful canvas on which Team Memorabilis painted a balmy extravaganza with bright hues and elements from India Circus. The gorgeous girls, the stunning venue and the wonderful vibe were all captured in striking frames by Picture Perfect India while The Wedding Diary preserved the memories on film.
The squad could barely contain their excitement as they spoke to us!
“Vrinda was flawless with my hair and makeup! I was thrilled with her work. And the products she used were very impressive too! The pigmentation and longevity of the L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Matte Lipstick – Beige Couture was amazing! Its creamy texture had my lips moisturized throughout the day. Thanks to this shoot, I’m considering buying the L’Oréal lippie soon!
This was such a great experience and it had us feeling absolutely glamorous. When the photo shoot began, it felt like all of it was real – as though the bohemian brunch was actually happening, which let the fact that I was going to get married soon sink in further and elevated the excitement!”
“For most people, summer style implies light-colored clothing and muted makeup. What I loved was that Tabeer Amrohi reminded me that bold colors can be exceptionally beautiful in the warmer months! Under the hot sun, her choice of the L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Matte Lipstick – Crimson En Scene was on point. Not only was the color unique but it was also very long lasting. We were shooting outdoors on a hot day and it stayed intact.
A moment from the day that will always stay with me is when we were shooting the video. When I saw myself on camera and my makeup looked so fresh. I thought the entire getup was beautiful and felt just like a star!”
“I was so pleased with my entire look! My gown was so elegant and then Vrinda’s makeup had a fresh, summery vibe to it! And the lip color was my favorite. I wore the L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Matte Lipstick – Rouge A Porter which has the most gorgeous rosy hue. The texture was smooth but what really stood out was that the color didn’t fade even slightly despite us shooting outdoors, in the sun, the entire day!
I truly enjoyed every single moment of the shoot especially when it was time for me to be photographed solo! I’m not the most camera-friendly person but we’d built a great rapport with the photographer and I felt like a natural! I had a blast in front of the lens.”
A subdued, fresh-faced look is what makeup artist Tabeer Amrohi had in mind while creating Priyanka’s daytime look. The nucleus of the look was the beautiful pigments in the L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Matte Lipstick – Maple Mocha. The neutral tones added to the sophistication and the creamy formula had her lips hydrated through the day. It was hard for Priyanka to pick a favorite she said because, “I really like all the lipstick colors by L’Oréal Paris.”
“I’m very interested in makeup and stay updated about new trends and techniques and I was very pleased with Tabeer’s work! The way she created my look was very similar to the way I do my own makeup except for that fabulous lip color she picked! It’s more daring than my go-to shades and it looked fabulous. The L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Matte Lipstick – Maple Mocha is going into my makeup arsenal immediately!
The outfit I wore was another aspect about my look that I loved. I couldn’t get enough of the color and the fluidity of the fabric! It made me think of a summer destination wedding and spoke to my personal sense of style.”
Big days and brunch dates are better with the bridesmaids!
Raising a toast to love, laughter and happily ever after!
The beautiful boho brigade!!
She said “Yes!” to him, so they said “Yes!” to her!
