Zainab Mehvee – Shyamal & Bhumika
Discover her transformation at WeddingSutra on Location held at Ahmedabad couturiers Shyamal & Bhumika’s flagship store in Mumbai
As part of our initiative WeddingSutra on Location, we invited four brides-to-be for a unique experience at Ahmedabad couturiers Shyamal & Bhumika’s flagship store in Kemps Corner, Mumbai. Starting with a Style Consultation, followed by a Makeover and a Photo Shoot, each of the participants had the opportunity to interact with some of the best names in Bridal & Wedding services.
Here, in the last of the four-part series, bride-to-be Zainab Mehvee tells us about her makeover experience at Shyamal & Bhumika.
“Like most brides-to-be I’m hooked on to WeddingSutra! I love following the beautiful makeovers on WeddingSutra On Location and when I saw a friend’s transformation and her stunning bridal look, I immediately wrote in to them as well. And I’m so glad I did. A few weeks later I received an email from Team WeddingSutra confirming my participation. I was going to be part of WeddingSutra On Location at the Shyamal & Bhumika store! I was nervous and anxious but also thrilled!
When I entered the store, it was buzzing. The experts were already at work on the brides who got there earlier. It was so exciting! Team WeddingSutra came and said hello and then took me through the agenda for the day. We started with the outfit. The team suggested a peach and blue bridal lehenga for me. I was initially a little skeptical about the color combination, but after trying it on, I was more confident of their choice.
I relied on Team WeddingSutra’s obvious expertise right through. When it was time to proceed with hair & makeup, I was introduced to Makeup Artist Amrita Sanghvi. She suggested emphasizing my eyes with a smokey look, and keeping the rest of the face subtle. As she worked, I chatted with her and gleaned a lot of useful tips I could follow post my wedding. She and her team decided to style my natural curly hair on one side, which looked amazing. And then she was done! I was ecstatic with the final look!
Then we looked at accessories. The gold jewellery from Azva was gorgeous and by now I just relaxed as Team WeddingSutra styled one of the chokers and raani haars together to create a grand bridal look. We further complemented it with delicate earrings and bangle.
And then, the dynamic photography duo from The Wedding Salad came in for the photo shoot. I completely let loose and enjoyed myself as Aayushi and Kanishka captured away.
All in all, WeddingSutra on Location defined ‘fun’ in every aspect, right from the moment I entered until I bid my goodbyes. Many thanks Team WeddingSutra for the unforgettable experience!”
Zainab flips through ‘Style Unveiled’- a Canvera Photobook
“Zainab has beautiful hazel colored eyes which I wanted to accentuate”, shares Makeup artist Amrita Sangavi. She started with creating the base with the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Skin cover Foundation in Ivory Fair for a polished finish and set it with the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Wet and Dry Compact in Ivory Fair. Since the eyes were the highlight, Amrita decided to keep the rest of the makeup muted.To highlight Zainab’s eyes, she used the Lakmé Absolute Color Illusion Pearl Shadow in Smokey Pearl for a shimmery and bold blue base and used the Lakmé Absolute Kohl Ultimate to give a bold smokey effect. She then lined her eyes with the Lakmé Absolute Shine Line in Blue shade and finished with a few coats of the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara. She then sculpted Zainab’s jawline and cheekbones with the Lakmé Absolute Sun-Kissed Bronzer to highlight her sharp features. To enhance Zainab’s fuller lips, Amrita used the nude Peach Out shade in the Lakmé Absolute Sculpt Studio Hi-Definition Matte Lipstick. Finally she styled her curly hair onto one side.
