Since years, I have been an ardent fan of Bollywood’s top makeup artist, Mickey Contractor. Known for his signature look of smokey eyes and nude lips, he’s the one responsible for making the creme of Bollywood look their most glam. I was excited when MAC invited me to the preview of Mickey Contractor’s latest video but imagine my surprise when the man himself – yes, The Mickey Contractor himself – was there to share his tips with us and help us recreate his signature makeup look with flawless skin and nude lips.
Not only did he guide us through the entire makeup process, he also shared tips on how to achieve flawless looking skin without it looking caked up. I have always shunned curling my lashes but he showed me what a huge difference it makes and showed the right way to curl them.
Hi new video that we previewed at the event was all about Indian Beauty essentials – simple kohled eyes with nude lips for an almost no-makeup makeup look. One of the things that I really liked about his makeup technique is that he believes in using the fingers to apply and blend makeup. He also is a minimalist and believes that less is more when it comes to makeup, especially if you want the makeup to look natural. And this is the finished look…
You can check out his video here.
