The Sun and the Moon

Hey Guys! So in this shoot, Rakshith was able to capture both the sun and the moon , hence the naming. From ages, we have been believing that subtle wavy hair is the definition of beach hair, but let me bring you to light here, mangy hair is nothing but beach hair. As I stepped into the sea shore, my washed and beautifully set( well, okay, it was mediocre but set for sure ) hair turned into  moist hair which was slowly churning into a fluffball. So please disregard my hair in this post :)

For today's look, I am wearing an asymmetrical top and a coordinating draped skirt from Aekatri. Aekatri is a clothing line by Charu Vij and it mainly focuses on contemporary Indian silhouettes made from Indian handloom. I discovered this brand through perniaspopupshop and looked into it further and found them on Instagram : @aekatri . Fortunately the outfit was priced much lesser in comparison with perniaspopupshop , since they were having a sale. So anyways, they had two choices of colors and I have always been more of a blue person. The outfit comes completely in pure silk and there is a floral embroidered motif on the top and the edges of the sleeves. The one-sided long drape which looks more or less like a shawl. This outfit is so versatile, you can wear this for sangeet ceremonies or wear them separately pairing the top with pants and the skirt with an embroidered jacket. This is a good alternative to the mainstream lehengas and sarees.

Summer is here and this calls for understated dewy makeup coz you never know when the sweat drippin might begin and cake up all your matte foundation. For this dewy look, I used a tinted moisturizer by Stila with SPF 20, this comes in a medium coverage and is very light on the face. The key is moisture which lets your skin looks radiant and glowy. Alternatively, you can also use a luminous or a sheer foundation like the Maybelline Satin Finish line. After priming my eyes, I used a metallic bronze liquid lipstick, Reign by Kylie Cosmetics and dabbed it all around the eyes instead of using an eyeshadow. This also makes your eyelids appear tinted, wet and dewy. Try this hack and let me know what you think, you can use a metallic liquid lipstick or a normal liquid lipstick and dab some shimmer on it. Highlighting is very important for this look and I have applied loads of it as you can see the glow in a few pics below. I am putting up a tutorial on this look for my next post, I promise. Do not miss out on it because I shall be revealing some information on how to get that intense glowy highlight.

As for the accessories, I have dismantled my earrings from Amrapali and worn it as a maangtika. I am wearing a ring from Accessories by Anandita and Kolhapuri Wedges By Coral from Evoluzione, Chennai.
