Q : At the onset of spring/summer, what according to you
are the top beauty trends for the season?
Samir Modi: The trend this summer will be all about keeping one’s skin foundation-free. Only apply a concealer or primer as a filler wherever it’s needed and follow it up by a dab of colour on the lips.
Q: Should brides keep it subtle or go all-out with their
makeup on the big day?
SM: Indian weddings and bridal clothes are all
about colours. Therefore the trick will be in simplifying one’s makeup to give a more natural look and enhancing one’s eyes with bold eyeliners and mascara to lend a sense of drama.
Q: What is the importance of multi-use beauty products? What are the different ways in which a bride could use
SM: Multi-use products usually help in keeping one’s makeup
bag lighter and at the same time doing multiple chores. Some of the Colorbar must-have products in every woman’s bag is the Shimmer bar, which acts as a bronzer, highlighter, and eye shadow, and Just Smokey Kajal, which can be used as a kajal, eyeliner, and eye shadow.
Q: Lastly, any beauty hacks for a bride-to-be?
SM: To get a rosy glow, apply your blush to the apples of your cheeks and then add a drop of powder or liquid foundation over to blend it in. Thicken your eyelashes by dusting baby powder to your lashes with a cotton bud in between the application of mascara. To make your eyeshadow last longer, colour in your lid with an eye pencil in
a matching colour before putting the shadow on top.You
can boost your lips by dabbing on a little eye cream
with hyaluronic acid as they will plump up your lips and help to minimise fine lines.
