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!
