Team MissMalini's in-house photographer, Khyati Gandhi, and I met international makeup artist, Gary Cooper, who took us on a tour in to the magical world of the most exclusive make-up and fragrance brand, Guerlain. Want to know how he managed to convince me that I needed to go out and celebrate last night?

Photo Credit : Steps to Get This Look Make-upI sat at their pop-up studio where Gary spoke with us about how-to's and what-not-to's (scroll down for his make-up tips!). We began by taking a look at Guerlain's new Spring collection.

Photo Credit : Guerlain Météorites Illuminating Pressed PowderI was very fascinated with the Guerlain Météorites Illuminating Pressed Powder. These powders have 5 shades of pearls and each serves a different purpose. Green: corrects redness | Pink: gives a healthy glow | White: illuminates | Yellow: highlights natural light | Mauve: brightens skin
Photo Credit : Guerlain Rue de Francs Bourgeois Eyeshadow PaletteHe used the Guerlain Rue de Francs Bourgeois Eyeshadow which is a palette of six different shades. He used the darker shade near the eyelashes and went lighter towards the eyebrow.

Photo Credit : Guerlain Or Impérial Sublime Radiant PowderTo finish my look Gary used this amazing sparkly shimmer called Guerlain Or Impérial Sublime Radiant Powder; on my face, neck and hands. Et voilà! J'ai eu un éclat magnifique (And voila! I had a beautiful glow).
Photo Credit : Amruta KhatavkarHere are some tips for you from Gary: 1. Use liquid Eyeliner that does not smudge or crack. 2. Purple is the current trend for your eyes. (Click for purple peepers here!) 3. Make sure to use a primer before applying any make-up. This helps to avoid fading of the make-up and protects your skin as well. 4. Green is also a very fresh and trendy colour. 5. Meteorites by Guerlain is highly recommended for Indian skin. If you have read my beauty essentials blog, you will know that I use very basic make-up, but this time I decided to go all out. What do you think of my look?
