Celebrity makeup artist Dress your face recreated a modern twist to a princess jasmine inspired look. This pastel theme compliments the overall vintage trend that the south Asian community have taken from the west. This floral fantasy look was perfected on lifestyle and fashion blogger and social light Roshini Daswani Kewalram.

In a haldi ceremony the family & friends prepare the bride for the upcoming wedding. Traditionally a natural paste is applied on the bride to enhance the bride’s complexion. This is somewhat an ancient South Asian spa treatment. Haldi brides tend to display this event with natural makeup and hair styles. Displayed perfectly by TV actress Divyanka Tripathi.
