New Dellhi: Bollywood’s ‘desi’ girl Priyanka Chopra walked right into the Oscars look book for the year by choosing a pristine white mermaid gown. Here’s how you can get and wear her look with a dash of modern elegance.
Priyanka added bling on the red carpet of the 88th Academy Awards ceremony, where she was a star presenter, in a stunning elegant creation designed by Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad.
Shailesh Moolya, national creative director, hair, at Lakmé Salon and Sushma Khan, national creative director, make-up, at Lakmé Salon, share how to get the style right:
* For hair: Take a horseshoe section on the top, and keep the portion separate. Take the rest of the hair and secure it in a low pony.
Take the top section and back comb hair towards the back. With this section, make a centre parting and smoothen the hair for volume and secure it with the low pony at the back. Use a mild holding spray to prevent frizzing.
* For make-up: The face is prepped, and a foundation two to three shades lighter is used to highlight facial features. A darker foundation over that for contouring.
* For eyes, the arch line is sharpened with a dark pencil and then blended with a brow brush. A brownish eye shadow is used along with black eye liner in the water line to bring out the eyes. A touch of mascara for longer lashes with drama.
* Lips are covered with skin colour foundation and outlined with burgundy for desired outline, then filled in with burgundy coloured lipstick. The cupid bow is dipped deeper for a sculpted, outlined pout.
