South Indian Muhurtham Makeover | Video | Tutorial

In this video, we transformed Vasudha into a pretty South Indian Bride (for a day!) I sprayed airbrush makeup to give her a subtle yet natural look which is high definition, water resistant and sweat resistant. Gold and copper eyeshadows beautifully enhanced her eyes and complemented her saree. The blouse we chose was a relatively modern blouse to give a twist to the traditional look! Hope you enjoy the South Indian Muhurtham video, do comment below and let me know! :)

My cinnamon highlights | Hair

For 2 years now,  I've resisted the urge to highlight my hair, reminding myself that colouring can lead to more hair damage on my dry hair. I spend a lot of time with my Hairstylist Dolma who is an expert with haircuts, styling and colouring! Right before we left to Goa for a destination wedding, she got herself a cute bob cut with gorgeous mahogany streaks that sat so beautifully on her silky smooth hair! I was surprised at how her new look chopped off not only her hair, but also took away 10 years, making her look much younger!!




So on our flight journey, this was the topic of discussion.

I  have major issues with my dry, frizzy hair which can be very unmanageable at times! I've always wanted to add streaks to my hair, without drying it out further and making it look frizzier! Since I wanted a very subtle look, with a hint of colour, Dolma suggested to go for deep reds, mahogany, and browns instead of the lighter golds and browns. Lighter hues draw more attention to frizzy hair so stay away from them unless your hair is healthy and shiny! Plus, I always wanted a reddish brown since it looks amazing on Indian complexion... The moment Dolma suggested I go for a shade called "Cinnamon", my face lit up!! I love cinnamon everything- mixing it in my oats, sprinkling it on top f my coffee, baking cinnamon truffles and even applying it on my face as a mask! 

Even better, Dolma advised me to go for 2 shades - cinnamon and hazelnut.. now how could I say no to that!!??? So she went ahead and alternated between these two beautiful shades to cut the monotony of one colour! 











Dolma gave me a voluminous blow dry after, which lasted me for 2 days! Yes, my weekend was sorted. 

To protect my colored hair, I bought the Wella Professionals shampoo and conditioner (for coloured hair) since it works amazing to keep your hair healthy and shiny! Oh and after your first hair wash, the colour will stand out even more! :)




I absolutely love the haircut and streaks she gave me, I just can't get enough of them!! ^_^

Guess what... For those of you who want to get a haircut or colour from Dolma, she is offering a 20% discount on salon services to all Mesmereyes Makeup followers!! :D Yaaay! Her salon is in Luz Church Road (Mylapore) and her number is +919884759596. 

Hope you guys like the highlights as much as I do! :P Gosh, it's amazing how a new hairdo can make you feel so fabulous!! ;)

Have a beautiful day!

Mwah,
Akriti
