Gargi shares with us her inspirations, favourite products and makeup artist tips below.
I chose to work in the beauty industry because.. ..I love colour and have been artistic all my life. l loved to paint and draw and for me, makeup allows me to do just that but in a much more fun and creative way!!
My favourite Vasanti product is… I don't just have one fav …. Can't I say I love everything equally? No really, I personally couldn't leave my house without the following products on my face: First I must absolutely wash my face with our Detox Cleanser and then exfoliate with Brighten Up! – my day just wouldn't feel right if I didn't do both. Afterwards my face feels so clean and refreshed and looks a million times brighter!!
I can't leave my house without the following products on my face! Eye Wonder – to treat my dark under eye circles and to moisturize my skin, Liquid Cover Up O2 – to immediately cover my dark circles, Face Base V4 - to set my concealer and to brighten my face. Everest Blush – I just love this colour!! Cleopatra Liquid Eyeliner and Long Lash Mascara – this shapes my eyes and makes them really stand out. I finish with Flores Lipshine – My absolute favourite lip colour, makes me feel really girly and pretty:)
I'm inspired by…. Everyday life, I must say I've come a long way …. When I look back at what my life was and what it is now, I can't help but to feel a great sense of accomplishment. I love everyone in my life, which in turn inspires me to be the best I can be, both to myself and the people around me. I feel so blessed for everything that I have.
My favourite place in the world is… Egypt … I haven't been there yet but hoping I'll make it there one day soon!! I love everything about Egypt, the history, the architecture, the art and it's just so beautiful in pictures! Lol … Egypt, I'll see you soon!
The three things I can't live without…. My Vasanti Products, lol! … No really, I'm completely being serious here:) My "Friends" DVD's – I have all 10 seasons and watch them religiously! …. And I have to say Nachos!! … Yes, I love Nachos …. I"ll eat them any which way they're given to me!!
My favourite beauty tip is… I don't just have one … I let liquid concealers sit for about a minute before blending into the skin, by doing this you'll get amazing coverage and it will last all day!! … I use a spoon to curl my lashes; this was a tip that was shown to me by another makeup artist – absolutely love it and haven't used an eyelash curler on myself since!
