From food we are now taking you to the world of Beauty! Well, both are tempting enough to make you crave for it. Don't get us wrong, by crave we mean, you will desire to look as beautiful as our Model (in pic).
If you thought that it's some kind of a rocket science, then you need to meet Avon India's Celebrity Makeup Consultant, Neha Khanna, who with her magic spell (we mean her skills) turned Swati Kain (our model for this shoot) into a gorgeous-looking beauty icon!
That's what our series "Makeup... Expert, & her Magic Spell" is all about...

Whether it's the foundation, eye-shadow, or the lipstick, each product is user-friendly. OK, now coming back to the makeup technique, Khanna shared quite a few secrets. Like, one doesn't necessarily need to go for one tone lighter foundation, feeling good in your skin is the best way out. If you are dusky, like Kain, be happy about it, as makeup boosts up what you feel from within. Secondly, don't use lip pencil of a darker shade, which most Indian women do. Simply apply it the outline of your lips, blend it inside, then cover it up with the lipstick that you wish to.
We were busy listening to what the expert was sharing, hardly realizing that she was already done with her first look. Our model was beaming with happiness, as she found the look like her own personality. " I feel so comfortable in this look, nothing is loud, I would love to hit a lounge with this look,' said Kain, who otherwise is a Yoga Trainer.
Next is queue was the day-time look. Although, Khanna started with this look, but we wanted you to see how keeping the same base, she simply changed the previously mentioned look.
Here, one again, focus were her eyes. but, we loved the technique with which Avon expert beautified our model's eyes. Squiggle around your eyes, like a kiddo, then using an eye-shadow brush, just blend it evenly. You get the perfect smoky look. " You don't have to restrict yourself to blacks and grays, go ahead with the colours that you love," suggested Khanna.
Well, we never knew that the technique is a child's play!
This time, Khanna made sure to keep the lips subtle, since it's day time, and she knows how engaged women are at their work place that any bright colour might be a turn off. but, as said earlier, there is no T&C (term and condition) on makeup. If you are in a field that welcomes bright colours whole-heartedly, just go for them...

And, here is our model with the expert, with her final look.
We realized that makeup is an art like any other art, which only gets better when you try, experiment, and enjoy. As for Neha Khanna, it is surely her USP, as she has skilled this art of beautification with years of experience.
" Every woman is beautiful in her own way, but there are some who know that it's the make up that can really create wonders, without making them look artificial. that's actually the magic spell," summed Khanna.
