Dear Yukta Mookhey: I'm a Harry Potter Fanatic Myself but This Is a No-No

Let me start of by saying this: I know it must be hard to walk down the street and not have the same fame as the other Miss Indias. I imagine it must be highly irritating to stand in line at the grocery store, tap your high-heeled shows impatiently, and huff as no one seems to recognize you, let you go straight to the register, much less exclaim "Oh my gawd! Like, oh my gawd! You're like, oh my gawd! You're like Yukta Mookhey right? The one who's like totally more famous than, like, Aishwarya Rai and Priyanka Chopra, and like, even um-all the other Miss Indias."

I also understand Harry Potter mania. It's a sad truth that I pre-ordered a copy of the seventh book as soon as this option was available. What is don't understand it Yukta Mookhey's choice of make-up at the premiere of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.



I have to admit, her skin looks great in this picture. However, the make-up does nothing to compliment her strong features or eyebrows. Her eyebrows are strong and quite naturally bring focus to her eyes. I understand if you want strong, smokey eyes and strong lips, but with her strong eyebrows the look is just too loud. I am not a huge fan of too many rules, but there's that feeling you get, I personally gasp for breath when this happens, when the look is too strong and starts detracting from a person's beauty.

A softer, more neutral shade of lipstick or gloss would have made this look lean towards sophisticated and sexy. A soft, warm blush that is applied with a featherlight touch would have also done wonders to compliment her eyes. I'll freely admit her make-up isn't in the Leage of Extraordinarily Bad Make-up (my own clever spoof of LXG), but it could look so, so much better.

So you see dear Yukta, it is possible to wear bold make-up with strong eyebrows and attent a Harry Potter premiere. At the same time.

Personally, I like her make up, although I agree it doesn't suit her face. Her brows are super thick and that's all I seem to notice looking at her face.

I dont hate her make up, but I see the brow point!
Anyway Anu, the wedding makeup turned out great, and I used 2 of your tutes, though my versions look nothing like what they were meant to. I'll try sending you a picture in your email soon.

Hey everyone. The thing is, I like her make-up and the theme but I think it could have been executed better. She has very strong brows and features so a softer pairing of lips and cheeks would have made complimented her face much better in my opinion. I must admit it's not bad at all, just that it could be more flattering.

30 days, ah! deeta lady, I need the deets. What all make-up did you wear? And I'd LOVE to see the pics.
