Aditi Rao Hydari with Elton J Fernandez
How can a bride recreate the cover look?
Dust some talcum powder on the crown, toss your head over, scrunch up your strands, and you’ll get beautiful texture, like a day-old blow dry. For makeup, play with muted colours on your lids, apply multiple coats of mascara, a soft contour, and heavy blush.

Since you are the ‘brow king’, what’s your advice for filled-in eyebrows that last?
Invest in a good brow primer—most of the products have an adhesive-like quality to them, which ensure your brows stay on.
One new makeup technique that you really love?
This one’s a secret but I’m sharing it exclusively with you. Extend the lip line outward and upward from the bottom lip and then connect that line to the cupid’s bow. This enhances your natural lips and adds an eternal smile to your face.
Your favourite products for skin?
An oil-control mattifying primer, a colour-correcting, green-tinted primer (works well for pigmentation), and a moisturising lip balm.

For the lips?
Apart from lipsticks and glosses, I love a good concealer to clean out the corners of the mouth and make sure your lip lines are clean and structured.

A lash curler and a voluminous mascara.
