Nidhi Mehta, AZA, Mumbai
Nidhi Mehta was a vision in burgundy which she picked for her 'WeddingSutra on Location' bridal makeover with WeddingSutra Favorites .
In the last of our three-part ‘WeddingSutra on Location’ series, we present bride-to-be Nidhi Mehta transformed into a beautiful bride in her deep burgundy ensemble by designer Disha Patil which had chic metallic tassels interspersed with floral motifs across the blouse and its sleeves. This hip ensemble was perfect for the ‘Sangeet Special’ theme of this series.
Nidhi shares special moments of her bridal makeover experience with some WeddingSutra Favorites such as the impressive AZA store in Mumbai. Her subtle jewellery from Azva added a haute vibe to her overall look without drawing attention away from the craftsmanship of her lehenga. Makeup artist Vipul Bhagat crafted a dreamy diva look on Nidhi with a focus on her lips with the finest products from the Lakme Absolute range.
Photographer Deepanshi Kapoor framed the fashionable and fun moments with her camera which the happy bride will cherish forever.
Nidhi shares, “My sister-in-law connected me to the brilliant WeddingSutra team and advised me to participate in the ‘WeddingSutra On Location’ series. With my marriage celebrations around the corner, this bridal makeover experience was a terrific way for me to try out the best names and services in the weddings industry.”
She started the day with fittings at the AZA store in Bandra and was thoroughly impressed by its colorful interiors and collections comprising some of the best bridal designer brands. “We started with the fittings, and luckily for me, there was no speck of confusion as I had already decided on a burgundy Disha Patil number. I thought it suited my complexion very well, and the tasseled blouse and sleeves gave it quite a contemporary edge. Also, the elegant jewellery from Azva was just perfect and paired well with my ensemble.”
Makeup artist Vipul Bhagat crafted a bronzed glam look on Nidhi with a special focus on accentuating her beautiful lips. Nidhi shares, “Vipul used the best of the Lakme Absolute products and had me ready in just 20 minutes. He gave a lot of tips on skin care which were very helpful.”
As the dolling-up process commenced, photographer Deepanshi Kapoor of Happyframes was always on her toes to capture the candid moments of the day. Nidhi adds, “The photographer was so calm and composed. She guided us through every step and urged us to do our best. The entire process felt very natural, and all three of us had a lot of fun. I must admit that I felt like absolute princesses! My overall experience was spectacular. We all were elated to try out something new and had the best time during the entire process. It was an unforgettable experience that all of us will cherish forever.”
Makeup artist Vipul Bhagat wanted to accentuate Nidhi’s naturally full lips, so he made them appear more luscious and also gave her a chic bronzed look. For an even base, he applied a thin layer of the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Foundation along with the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Wet and Dry Compact to even out her skin. To add a luminous bronzed glow that went well with the ‘Sangeet Special’ theme, Vipul added a light brush of the Lakme Absolute Bronzer on the hollows of her cheeks to contour as well as add a warm texture to her face. Vipul then accentuated her eyes with Lakme Absolute Illuminating Eye shadow in Gold. He then added copious amounts of the Lakme Absolute Flutter Secrets Volume Mascara and lined her eyes with the Lakme Absolute Precision Eye Artist Kajal in Black. Since this look gravitated more towards a subtle glow, he added a nude brown tinge of the Lakme Absolute Lip Pout Matte Masaba Lips in Hot Chocolate to complete the overall glam look.
