Who won the world? Girls!

Or more recently Indian girls at Cannes, that’s who! At the recently concluded Cannes ‘Fashion and Film Mecca’, Indian women definitely grabbed eyeballs, and reams of digi and print space! From Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to Mehr Rampal to Sonam Kapoor – home grown beauties have become our most valued style ‘export.’

Yes, they have professionals who make them look picture perfect, and they’re genetically blessed and have nary a bad angle, blah… blah… blah, but there’s no reason us regular girls can’t take a leaf out of their beauty books and give the trends a whirl, right? Ready girls?
Ok, right off the bat, there’s been waaaay too much written about her in the last few weeks, most of it downright nasty, with opinions flying thick and fast. But despite the gabfest (and yes, I’ll admit some of those looks did her no justice), I was completely blown away by Ash in her Angelo Katsapis ombré maxi-dress.

Her face gleamed, her eyes twinkled and maybe it was the camera angle, but that rogue ‘curl’ that fell over one eye made for a very pretty picture.

So how do you get her skin? Simple.

• Cleanse, tone and moisturize your face. Wait for a few minutes to let the skin settle.
• Use a face primer – this sets your base and enhances its effect.
• Use a light reflective concealer and blend evenly in your whole eye socket to brighten your eyes.
• Blend a light reflective foundation into your face, and then use natural/colour pigments to contour your cheeks as desired.
