A Small Interview with Make-Up Artist Shalini Vasisht

I hunted down Bollywood make-up artist Shalini Vasisht and she was kind enough to email me back questions I had asked her. You can view her work on her website. For those of you who'd like a bit more of an introduction here is an excerpt from her profile on her website:

"Shalini Vasisht is a renowned celebrity Makeup Artist and the lady behind many glamorous and beautiful bollywood stars like Aishwarya Rai, Sushmita Sen, Sharmila Tagore, Pooja Batra, Mallika Sherawat, Neha Dhupia, Udita Goswami among others. She has held grooming sessions for the Miss India Pageants and personally groomed Miss India World 1993 and Miss India Pacific 1994."

ME: What are some of your go-to products?
Shalini: MAC Prep+Prime, MAC Brow Finisher, Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss Palettes, Bobbi Brown Moisturizing Cream Compact Foundation, Lancome tinted moisturizer, Kryolan Derma Colour Camouflage System.
Note: Lancome has 3 different types of tinted moisturizers Aqua Fusion Teinte, Bienfait Multi-Vital Teine, and Imanance.

What are your favourite brand/type of concealors and foundation? What products/shades from a specific do you like using on fairer skinned women and darker skinned women respectively?
Shalini: MAC and Bobbi Brown have great foundations for darker skintones and L'Oreal for fairer skintones.

ME: What is the one make-up no-no you see women doing?
Shalini: A foundation lighter than your skin tone is a big no-no. The base should match the skin tone.

ME: What is your idea of a basic face?
Shalini: A basic face would have make-up that brings out the natural tones and colours on the face, lips, and eyes.

What are your favourite bronzers and/or blushes?
Shalini: MAC iridescent powders are nice bronzers, I also like Estee Lauder and NARS blushes.

And last but not least, can you name some of the products you used on Neha Dhupia in the following photo:

Shalini: On Neha, I used the MAC Paint in red on the eyes, Lipglass in Rose on the lips, NARS Orgasm blush, and Bobbi Brown Cover Stick as the foundation.
NOTE: The paint and lipglass she is referring to sounds like Flammable paint and Flusterose lustreglass.
