love for white

Hello Girls, 

My love for white is never ending. I like to keep myself updated with the latest and upcoming trends in Fashion and Beauty. Both these industries are connected and complement each other In many ways. for instance if the color ‘Red’ is in vogue, it will filter down to even the smallest item in your wardrobe and your makeup drawer without you even realizing it !

I’m absolutely thrilled to share with you one of the forthcoming trends in international and Indian beauty & fashion industry. For someone who loves and worships the color WHITE, I am on cloud 9, because the wedding season is all about White.

White sarees increase  the elegance            love for white is neverending

White will thankfully not be limited to Christian Weddings now… yayyyy ! we should see a lot of white gowns, Lehangas and Sarees with intricate embroidery. So, what does this mean for the Makeup industry ? Lets get down to it.

  1. Colors that compliment White like Peach, Gold, Emerald, Royal Blue, Rust, Maroon and Magenta will be the most popular in the makeup Aisle. 
  2. Kajal will be back but mostly in Brown or Dark tan. 
  3. Soft Peach Cheeks are here to stay and rightly so ! 
  4. You can never undermine the impact or a bold lip. However, bold lips won’t be limited to matte shades anymore… there will be oodles of Gloss everywhere… so load up on it Ladies. 
  5. Metallics, sequins, crystals  & Glitters will be huge because White has the unique ability to downplay and highlight anything and everything. You just need to know how to balance it. 

So Ladies, Shop sensibly and make sure you include at least one white outfit for your wedding function and buy the right cosmetics along with it.

God bless you all. email me at hello@tanvikgmakeup.com or Call me at 9988804567 .

If you have any queries.

Hello all,

I’m back with some more useful Summer Makeup tips and tricks for nailing the perfect look.

Summer Makeup Tips & Tricks

During summers our skin tends to get oily, specially around the T zone, which results in breakouts. So ladies make sure you drink tons of H2O to flush those toxins out.

Let us begin…

  • Cleansing and Moisturizing as a Summer Makeup Tip

Cleanse and Moisturize your face. YES…Moisturising is essential for your skin, no matter which type. Use an oil free moisturiser or a gel based moisturiser and let your skin soak it all in. My all time favourite moisturiser is the Clnique Moisture surge. Moisturizer

  • Apply a light textured BB cream

Apply a light textured BB cream or a water based light coverage foundation using your fingers. Blend it well. A powder based foundation can work wonders if your skin is oily. my favourite picks are One and Done by Urban Decay, Dior Skin Forever Powder Foundation & Estee Lauder Double wear Light.

  • Powder

Powder your T zone with a sheer face compact powder but ONLY the T zone. I use Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush face Powder because it gives an amazing finish.

  • Eye Shadow 

Use a champagne or rose gold colour Eye shadow all over the eyelid and right under the lower lash line to give a fuller look. Follow it up with a dark brown or black Eye pencil and neatly enhance the lash line (top and bottom). make sure that you keep the pencil sharpened to create a thinner line. My favourite summer eye shadows are the Vintage Vamp eye shadow quad from Charlotte Tilbury, The Lake quad in Desert rose and for Simpltons I would highly recommend the long wear eye crayons from Bobbi Brown. For lining the eyes my favourite eye pencil is the black eye pencil from L’Oreal.

  • Mascara

Add a dash of Mascara to your eyes. Make sure that you hold the brush parallel  to the ground.

  • Lipstick

Lipstick– lipsticks are a very personal choice but for the perfect summer look I would advise going for glossy, semi matte shades in nice pinks, browns. Bright colours like hot pink and coral work fantastic if you are going to mostly say indoors. I totally love Cream in my Coffee shade from MAC and Bond girl from Charlotte Tilbury. Shades from MAC like Mehr, Kinda Sexy, Twig, Velvet Teddy etc are excellent nude shades.

Using high quality products

  • Blusher Powder

Take a good look at yourself and use a soft color/shimmer Blusher powder to finish the look. I love using the NARS cheek palette & the Shimmer Bricks from Bobbi Brown are incomparable.

Till then..Keep it clean girls !

Hi Lovelies,

Celebrity Weddings Decoded by tanvi KG Makeovers. This Bridal Season has been very exciting for all of us. Mostly because we have so many celebrity inspirations for the wedding ought, wedding jewelry, the overall styling of the wedding, grooms wear and whatnot. Anushka, Sonam, Deepika, Priyanka & now Isha Ambani have given us a lot of wedding goals and also a lot of confusion lol. 

While Anushka chose a very delicate and pastel look for herself, Sonam, Deepika and Priyanka went all colorful on their D day. 

I would like to share my favorite wedding looks from all 4 of these Brides and how we can incorporate some of the ideas without the quintessential Sabyasachi Lehenga and ginormous necklaces and jhumkis.

Celebrity Wedding decoded: Mehendi and Haldi Functions

While Anushka and Priyanka weren’t the expected route of bright and colorful outfits, Deepika went for a muted pink lehengas for her Mehendi. Sonam broke the stereotype by opting for a stunning White and Gold Lehenga.

Anushka Sharma

Perfect look for Simpletons, hassle-free, functional as well as bright and cheerful. 7/10

Deepika Padukone

Too much going on with the nude pink outfit, heavy jewelry, red shawl/stole. It’s a great look if you want to sit pretty but not if you want to dance and mingle with your guests. 6/10

Ranveer & Deepika: Celebrity wedding decoded

Sonam Kapoor

Different, Elegant with a touch of chic with the amazing choli back, A great way to rock white at a wedding. Perfect for the Classes Bride. 8/10

Sonam & Anand: Celebrity wedding decoded

Priyanka Chopra

Loved the silhouette of her outfit. Fun, whimsical, great for girls who want to hit the dance floor. 9/10

Priyanka Chopra wedding

Celebrity Wedding Decoded: Wedding Day

All these breathtaking Brides taught us a whole lot when it came to their Bridal look. The common factor among all of them was Sabyasachi. It does tell us that when it comes to Indian Bridal Wear, Sabyasachi is considered the undisputed king. Except for Sonam Kapoor, all others chose Sabya for their wedding day, albeit in completely different styles. 

Anushka Sharma

Anushka was seen in a gorgeous nude pink lehenga in this beautiful English wedding style decor which complimented the entire look completely. She has become somewhat of a trendsetter in Pastel Bridal Lehengas. I do feel that her “No Makeup Makeup” went a little south. This look is perfect for Brides who like pastels and prefer minimalism in makeup. 8/10

Virat & Anushka Wedding

Deepika Padukone

Deepika as expected was seen in full Bridal Glory in a lavish Indian red ensemble. She not only rocked the look but also gave us major Grand Indian wedding goals. What I loved about her was that the outfit wasn’t full of embroidery and the RED of the outfit is making her look ethereal. This look is perfect for Brides who want to go all out and look traditional on the big day. 9/10

Ranveer deepika Wedding

Sonam Kapoor

Sonam, the only one who didn’t go to the Sabyasachi store for her wedding lehenga. Lol! Sonam wore a gorgeous Anuradha Vakil Outfit which complimented her beautifully. The red lotus embroidered lehenga was a show stopper! This loos is perfect for Brides who like to blend traditional and modern together. 9/10

Sonam Kapoor wedding

Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka, Honestly I think she looked better in her Christian wedding. She is normally a very fashion-forward personality but somehow her wedding outfit didn’t bring out the best in her. The all-red Sabyasachi lehenga was stunning but probably we expected something more from her. Her style was neither here nor there. 6/10

Nick & Priyanka wedding

Celebrity Wedding Decoded: Reception/ Post Wedding Party

While most of these celebrities had 1 post-wedding function, Deepika and Ranveer had countless.. one for every Indian state probably lol!

Virat & Anushka

Anushka and Virat hosted 2 reception parties. In one of the functions, she chose a traditional red saree and jewelry that looked identical to Sabyasachi’s Instagram posts with nothing different or talk worthy. In the Second Reception, she wore a Grey/beige lehenga (again from Sabyasachi) and looked refreshingly different because of the color choice. 7/10

Ranveer & Deepika

Deepika and Ranveer have many parties post their wedding but the one that stood out for me was the one in which she wore a red evening gown with a long Slit, she later took off her heels and tulle skirt and turned her ultra-glam outfit into a mai dress with white sneakers. That to me was the super collect reception outfit. Her other look: like the Gold Saree with statement jewelry suited her well and she carried the saree with a lot of grace.

Her white Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla reception outfit with never-ending long earrings was a big downer. She looked drab and boring. The Other reception in which she wore ANOTHER Sabyasachi Freda Kahlo Lehenga was extremely surprising to me because that Lehenga has been seen by the world like 3 months back so why would a huge superstar wear something that has been done and dusted in the fashion world? I must applaud Ranveer for the super chic outfit on that reception though. 6/10

Anand & Sonam

Sonam chose a subtle and modern Anamika Khanna for her reception look which was in sync with her experimental personality but I feel she could have done better. The outfit was stunning but not at par with her status of India’s only Fashion Icon. 7/10

Anand & Sonam's wedding decoded

Nick & Priyanka

Priyanka wore a stunning white lehenga by Falguni and Shane Peacock for her reception in Delhi and looked every bit as classy as she should. I loved how she paired the Gajra with her outfit and lent it a beautiful Indian look. Totally dug the look! 9/10

Nick & Priyanka wedding decoded

So girls here is a breakdown of ALL the wedding looks that we loved and hated this season. My suggestion would be to chose your look according to your style, personality and comfort level, just like these stunning women did. Take inspiration for sure but do not forget yourself in this process. 
God bless you! Looking forward to creating some more fabulous IStyle Brides this season.

Hi gals, a very HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you!

This season has seen wayyyyy too much Wining lol. By that I mean the color Wine is visible everywhere from clothes, makeup to accessories, home furnishings and everywhere else possible.

Brides have adorned color Wine and Maroon for their wedding occasions and this beautiful color is now not limited to Mature ladies only (well, that’s what the perception was!). The awesome thing about this color is the versatility. It can either be the statement color or very easily be made the base color. Second awesome thing about it ? It looks absolutely gorgeous on Indian Skin. I love how sophisticated and feminine it is.

Lets discuss how we can incorporate this amazing color in our Makeup. Here is a comprehensive list of your guide to all the WINE makeup that one can find.

Color Wine as a lip liner

As a lip liner (a no brainer) Thankfully we have variety of textures to choose from. You have the mattes, the glosses and the scrumptious satin finish.

    • MAC- Diva
    • L’Oreal- Plum Mannequin (the shade you see on Deepika Padukone’s L’oreal ad)
    • Bobbi Brown
    • Dior addict lipstick in Dark Mauve Plum
    • Bobbi Brown- Bordeoux Red, deep rich red, deep red berry

As an Eye Shadow

As an Eye Shadow, Wine ombre eye shadow done right is every girl’s makeup fantasy for sure. Let me share my more favourite palettes for achieving a beautiful wine and berry eye makeup look.

  • Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette
  • Huda Beauty Obsessions Eye shadow in Mauve
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette
  • Smashbox- Ablaze eye palette
  • Natasha Denona- Star Eye shadow Palette

As an Eye Pencil

As an Eye Pencil just use it in place of a back eye liner to give to a softer look to the eyes or use it on top of the black eyeliner to add an extra dimension.

  • Urban Decay- Alkaline
  • Makeup Forever- Aqua XL M80 pencil
  • Clinique- Intense Plum
  • MAC- Longwear eye liner pencil in Strong willed

PS- there are many more brands and colours but these are the ones that I have used and am confident about.

Cheers! Hope this helps
