Lakme Beauty Masterclass in association with Femina

Hola Beauties :)

Last weekend it was a double brownie points for me – As I had a mini vacation planned plus a Lakme MasterClass invitation in my mail box ;). I missed my opportunity of attending this MasterClass during Lakme Fashion Week so I was desperate to make it to the event this time around ;).

What : Event : Lakme Beauty Masterclass in association with Femina

When : 9th November 2013

Where : The Lalit Hotel, Mumbai

Lakme Beauty Masterclass - Nov 9

I was a stirred up soul walking to the event as I knew I had a great chance to learn and meet some great personalities :). I walked into soul soothing ambience. I registered myself and was told to pick a color card from Green, Blue & Purple – Purple my favorite from those three ;)

I still have those early butterflies in my stomach walking into an event which settles down with known faces ;) – Ishani gives a warm welcome and put me to a comfort zone. Later met Shanaya and those butterflies vanishes in a blink of an eye :D and a warm hug from Jazz buries them completely :).

Its My Turn to Try My Luck with the Lakme Youth Infinity Range

Few important tips I gathered from the session:

  • Cleansing, Toning & Moisturizing is very important step in protecting the beauty of your skin.
  • Anti-Ageing protection should start in late 20’s.
  • Infinity Sculpting Ritual is great range and Highly Recommended from my end.
  • Infinity Sculpting Ritual should be followed twice a day.
  • During Application : While stroking of any skin care products use fingers with gentle pressure.
  • Application should always be in upwards direction – Never stretch or pull your strokes downwards.

  • Step 1 – Foundation or CC cream : Using a finger applied Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Foundation or CC Cream all over the face and neck. (One can use a brush or sponge for more coverage).
  • Step 2 – Blush : Use a lipstick – Yes you read it right a Lipstick !! Use fingers to melt it into the cheeks and add a pop of color.
  • Step 3 – Concealer : Dot Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Concealer under your eyes using your ring finger and blend it.
  • Step 4 – Compact : Using a powder brush apply Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Compact lightly all over the face. It will help to set the foundation.
  • Step 5 – Brows : Groom your Brow. Fill in the brows using an eyebrow pencil.
  • Step 6 – Eyeshadow : Using the new Lakme Absolute Drama Stylist Shadow Crayon in Bronze – Create a wash of color and sheen on the entire eyelid.
  • Step 7 – Define : Using a soft blending brush and a soft brown shade – Define your crease area and your lower lash line.
  • Step 8 – Line : Create a thin eyeliner on the upper lash line using Lakme Absolute Shine Line in Black.
  • Step 9 – Mascara : Curl your lashes using a curler and apply a single coat of Lakme Eyeconic Mascara.
  • Step 10 – Apply Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Liner top it with Lakme Gloss Stylist – A plum pout and you’re done :)

Few important tips I gathered from the session:

  • Natasha prefers Lipstick as a blush over the actual blush.
  • Grooming your brows is an important step as they add a youthful look and frame your face.
  • Defining your socket line adds definition and a lift your eyes.

I had a great time and it will be a huge part of my learning curve as beauty & fashion blogger.

Remember – Earlier while registration we were asked to select a color card and I picked the purple one. There was something special stored for us – One on one session with one of the three from the panels of expert. My purple color card landed me for a quick session with Natasha Nischol *HappyMe* :).

I went in as a nervous soul and with loads of queries but as soon as I met her and shared a seat alongside her – Blank I went :D (Silly Me).

I really liked the idea of using a lipstick as a blush so I had one major concern that needed a clarification –

Me – I have a combi-oily skin so can I use lipstick as a blush – Will it cause a breakout ?

Natasha Nischol – No dear, You go for powder blushes.
