Makeup Artist Review : Tanvi Kochar

When I was getting married I was pretty sure what I want and who I want, but for my brother's wedding I just knew that I had to look pretty and different. That's it. I had no inspiration picture, no thoughts, nothing at all.

The trouble this time was that I was wearing the same clothes that I wore for my wedding for 2 major functions!

My Tilak lehenga for Bhaiya's Tilak ceremony 
My wedding Lehenga for Bhaiya's Wedding

So it became essential that I looked different from what I had looked earlier! Now as much as I loved my wedding MUA (Ramita) I really wanted to go for someone different for the following reasons :

1) I strongly feel that every creative person has a 'signature style', and being a designer I know this is true, so even if my old MUA would have created a different look, it wouldn't be TOTALLY different because her signature style would kick in some where.

2) I wanted a little modern approach so wanted someone a little more experimental.

3) I wanted to try a new MUA so I could review it for you guys ;P

After calling, researching and agonizing a LOT I finally decided to go with Tanvi Kochar, and I am glad that I did!

The one thing that I liked about her was that she was on time, and not a lot of MakeUp Artist usually are.


For Bhaiya's engagement I really wanted a 'married' look, because it was the first major family event after my wedding and I wanted to 'look married'; but after my first meeting with Tanvi I decided to kind off let her do her work and not stress on things, I was pretty much happy with the results.

She gave me bold eyebrows, which she said were the 'in' thing, to be honest I am not the kind of person who likes to follow whats 'in' and I was pretty nervous about it, when I looked into the mirror I thought the only thing noticeable on my face were my eyebrows, but Tanvi reassured me its looking good and it takes time to get use to it, my mom liked it too so I went ahead with it. I feel in love with the look by the time we were in the car.

She also gave me a really bright lip color which I would have never thought I could carry it off but it looked good!

Wedding Police ?!

What is it with celebrities and their understated weddings?!?!? Do they get too tired of wearing heavy clothes all the time, or maybe because every other person coming to their wedding would be wearing something stunning, they want to stand apart so they end up wearing something subdued.

Although Soha Ali Khan looked fabulous in her wedding day attire, I don't really think its the best she could have worn, I wish there was something more to it, something to aww us with :/

She does look like the 60's Heroine though...I dunno why I don't like this, maybe its the lack of color, because she does look stunning, just not 'Bridal'.

Look at this old photo of her for a jewelry brand :

Now that looks like a bride :/ , Anyways apart for the wedding, her Mehendi and reception outfit weren't too much to talk about :

Wedding's not on the Ground Floor?!

I have attended 2 weddings this season where the function was held at the top floor and the 1st floor. While having a terrace wedding or a closed banquet wedding has a charm of its own I felt that both of them lacked one thing :

The Grand Entry of the Baraat.

The whole visual looks great when the Baraat comes to the venue and they are dancing on the gate, the Bride's family is waiting impatiently for them to come in already! And then someone from the grooms side pulls someone from the Bride's side to dance and within minutes everyone is dancing! That feeling of pure joy and happiness is one of the great moments of a wedding.

Everyday Makeup

Ok to be honest, I am not a Makeup-All-Day kind of girl, given any day I prefer being bare faced than having a layer on me. However there are times when I do need that extra coverage and when you are a bride-to-be or a newly wed, a little makeup does help the heavy outfits you have on.

Here is a look into what I do when I want just a tad-bit of makeup :

STORE REVIEW : Chandni Chowk, Sudhir Bhai

Sudhir Bhai has certainly been a favorite haunt of Brides-to-be in Delhi for many years. Somehow I never got around to visiting it during my wedding shopping, so when it was my brother's turn to tie the knot I decided that atleast one of my dress would be from Chandni Chowk!

I went on a weekday around lunch time, so thankfully there wasn't much crowd, but as the time progressed it feels as if ever single bride in town has arrived at Sudhir Bhai. Its always better to go on a weekday and even better still as early as possible. While the staff is polite and Sudhir Bhai himself tries to accommodate everyone, the sheer amount of number makes it impossible to wait on everyone.

Infact I once went on a Saturday around 2, and we had to leave empty handed without even seeing one inch of anything after waiting for 45min, that is the amount of traffic Sudhir Bhai gets!

But once you have the undivided attention of a Salesman the number of possibilities he brings in front of you are so many! Now when I went in I had restrictions :
