Dipthi shares with Mums and Stories, ” Make up according to me is a way to celebrate myself.As a creative person I believe a face is a canvas and I get to paint a new masterpiece every time I wear makeup.
It’s a pick-me-up to feel confident and most definitely an extension of my personality.Most importantly I don’t let my makeup over shadow me!

Makeup is an enhancement and not a mask.

Also my response to young women when they come to me to learn or get make up done is that, you should be able to do makeup in a way that enhances your look and makeup is not all about looking perfect . A little imperfection is what really adds to the beauty.
Never come with an intention to look like someone. Each one’s facial structure is different and it’s important to design a look that fits one’s skin tone,facial structure and personality.

So for this look, I started off with the primer and later applied the foundation and sealed with benefit flawless compact. I used the MAC pigment on the center of the lids to create that pop and used the shade brick on the crease.

I have also used a slightly dark shade of maroon to intensify the corners. I completed the look using gorgeous gold shadow from MAC for the brow bone and the inner corner of my eyes to brighten the eyes.

The kohl I used is Lakme iconic and finished off with generous coat of mascara. I have filled my lip with a liner and applied ruby woo.


For the checks , I used Estée Lauder sculpting blush in the shade wild sunset and for highlighted the cheek bones with Bobby brown shimmer brick!
