Indian wedding functions!

Today, I had a makeup & hair assignment. This beautiful lady Manisha engaged me after her friend recommended me. I did the makeup for her friend three years ago. Manisha was such a nice lady to work with, she was very accommodating! I even did makeup for her mum.

Here are some pics.

My best wishes to the bride!

Wedding preparations

Starting to feel a little restless as the wedding is just 7 days away. I am still deciding on what kind of hairstyle to wear. The gown is all set. It is white, simple and with a train. Makeup is not a problem, I have it all planned.

Here is a hairstyle I came up with after some YouTube research. This was something Beyonce wore for an event (can't remember which one!).

It looks big because the bun is fake. Maybe I might put some flowers on the side. I am still not too sure what to do next! Scary!

42 colour double stack eyeshadow & blush palette

I finally got my 42 colour double stack matte & shimmer eyeshadow and blush palettes. I tried out both the palettes. Here are my comments about the palettes.

Pros :
1) Very pigmented
2) Beautiful range of colours
3) Texture is much better than the 120 eyeshadow palette (not too soft)
4) Compact size & packaging
5) The shimmer colours are very pretty

1) Palette gets dusty after awhile
2) The blushes are very pigmented, so one has the have a light hand during application.
3) The brushes that come with it are low quality (Can't see myself using it!)

What more can I say, for the price you get great colours. Isn't that what we want? :)

I also bought 56 colour palette for my mum, 32 colour lip palette, silver gel liner & gold gel liner. I will try them out and post reviews of them later.

Thanks for reading!
