Did I tell you my job takes me to b:blunt every now and then? ;) No? Then I mustn’t have told you how much I love to watch people transform from one look to another. On Sunday afternoon, I found myself at b:blunt, Khar. I tell the receptionist I’m with Malini. She corrects me and says, “MissMalini, you mean”. Yup, that’s right lady.
So, MissMalini comes along and we start shooting. For her Cointreauversial party, MissMalini wanted a 1920s burlesque look. It’s great when your hairstylist gets what you mean. Shifali Shetty started by showing MissMalini the shape her hair would take after she had worked on it. She then sent MissMalini for a hair wash, dried it only 40% and layered it with moose. Instead of using tongs to curl her hair, Shifali physically curled MissMalini’s hair, pinned it and let it dry for at least 45 minutes. She opened the curls, tied some of it with braids and let the rest of the hair move freely. It looked good!
As for the make-up, Shimsha and MissMalini didn’t want it to be matched with the outfit. They wanted dark eye shadow, bright lips and of course, a beauty spot. In waiting, MissMalini with her curly hair, looked like a character straight out of Mad Men. Keeping the cheeks minimal, Shimsha did a great job of the make-up. Don’t you agree? I loved being a part of MissMalini’s journey from casual to cointreauversial. xoxo
