fame game

The Virat Kohli-Anushka Sharma wedding can rightly be called the wedding of the year, if not the decade. It made all the right kind of noises and uplifted our hearts, a tad gloomy, by the fact that we were unable to see what could have been the year’s biggest blockbuster, Padmavati.

With a darker shade on the lip line and then going lighter inwards is the right way to get those full Angelina Jolie lips. But the latest is the Korean stain trend with the reverse grading of the shades. It looks classy, sexy and a good way to upgrade your make-up. HOLLYWOOD’S LIP TALK “Makeup is about balance. When the lips make a statement, the eyes should be quiet.” -Francois Nars…
