Nazakat- Indian Diaries

It’s just a week since I came back from India and you all must have clearly noticed that I am still not out of my holiday moods. :/
As this is my home country so I thought to show my western crowd little bit Indian side of me and why not? We all love India? Isn’t it and some of them started loving after Coldplay Hymns video 😉 To begin with you must be thinking what does ‘Nazakat’ means?well, it means delicate woman in Arabic.

Before flying to India I thought I would say no to work and will enjoy my holiday. However, I forgot this time it’s bit different for me. Bloggers never ever rest. :O

So on day one I got an opportunity to catch up with Divyani makeup artist. She is based in Lucknow but she travels quite often to New Delhi because of her bridal bookings.
I am a sucker of makeup and I want everything to be on point – no white face, pouty lips, fuller eyelashes and so on. I was a bit baffled when Divyani asked me for a makeup shoot I wasn’t sure at that time, plus this shoot came in between my holiday 😛
But through my pictures below you can clearly see how happy I am and I have a perfect Indian girl look which we all love across globe.
Before I keep here writing here I am up close and personal with Divyani:

1) What were you doing before you got into makeup?
I worked as a cabin crew with jet and indigo airlines.
2) What would you have done if you hadn’t been a make-up artist?
I probably would have been sitting behind a desk doing what I did’nt love (Not that it doesn’t work for others).
3) What advice would you give to someone wanting to become a make-up artist?
Even if you have a natural flair training is important So choose a good academy or guru to learn from.
4) And which element of your job do you most enjoy?
I like how make up enhances the eyes. Since it’s the most expressive. Good eye make up just does it for me.
5) What is in your personal make-up bag?
Lip balm, a mascara and a lip/cheek  tint. Love benefit!
6) Does everyone look better with make-up?
The right kind of makeup. Definitely a yes.
Not that women don’t look absolutely beautiful without it. But it’s a great way to cover some Itsy Bitsy flaws and also adds a lot of glam factor for special occasions


7) If you turn up at a show/shoot and the model has terrible skin, what do you do?
I’d relax. Make up today covers a lot of flaws. I wouldn’t panic at all. So relax ladies! sit back and let us do the rest. 🙂


8) What do you love most about makeup?
I personally love bridal make up. It gives me a different satisfaction when the brides come to me to get ready for their ‘the day’ and leave my studio completely in love with the makeup that feeling is inexplicable.


09) How would you describe your signature look and what is it about your style that sets you apart from other makeup artists?
Less is more. And I truly believe in this concept and abide by it when I create a look for a client. . Make up is about looking bright not white!
10)What kind of makeup is best in hot and humid weather.
Mineral powders and water based foundations are the best for summers.. Don’t forget to remove your makeup too.
11) Mac or Nars?
Can I say both? 😉
12) Liquid foundation or powder?
It depends. In summers mineral powder, and in winter use foundation.
13) Describe makeup in one word
14) What advice would you give to a new make-up artist?
Practice, practice, practice! That’s all 🙂

You can find Divyani here, here and here.

Now coming to the outfit I am wearing Westside Salwaar Kameez, which was at a good price and so does my ethnic earrings as well.  Westside is always on my list whenever it comes to Indian wear. They are trendy, reasonable and vibrant.

Here are a few pictures and if you have any questions in regard to makeup, hairstyle or outfit please feel free to leave your comment below.

Much Love
