Interview with Celebrity Make-up Artist Vipul Bhagat

I contacted Vipul Bhagat a while back and he was incredibly nice and helpful. He has over 14 years of experience in the industry and has a large celebrity following, among which are Svetha Jaishankar, Malaika Arora, and Madhu Sapre. Here are a few pics from his portfolio: pic 1, pic 2, pic 3, pic 4, pic 5.

Me: Are there any products that always feature in your kit?
Vipul Bhagat: MAC and Kryolan products.

Me: What brands do you rely on for foundation? Which brands do you prefer for darker skin tones and which would you prefer for lighter skin tones?
Vipul Bhagat: MAC for lighter skin tones, Bobbi Brown and Kryolan for darker skin tones. I don’t like MAC foundations too much for darker skin tones because they can go on a bit grey on the skin.

Me: For a professional look for work, what are the products and what kind of a look do you recommend?
Vipul Bhagat: I would do a beauty-shot type look where the skin is central. Or western dark eyes and pale lips.
Note: I’m guessing he means a smokey eye. Just making sure make-up jargon is universal.

Me: For weddings, what are some products you feel a bride should look into?
Vipul Bhagat: For weddings mainly the foundation, lipstick and kajal pencil are important. If you can, try to make all these things waterproof as Indian brides tend to cry after their wedding they become emotional. MAC Blot Powder is also good to keep your skin matte and looking good in photos.

Me: What are some mistakes you see women making with regards to make-up and what would you suggest as opposed to what they currently do?
Vipul Bhagat: They don’t cover their dark circles, they use kaajal pencil which at the end of the day is spread all over the eye region and looks like dark circles, and always carry a chapstick and then their lips become very dry and cracked.
Note: I am so guilty of doing the last thing.

Me: What are some of your favourite MAC products that you use often.
Vipul Bhagat: Stripdown and especially Spice lip liners. For lipglosses I like Lust, Love Child, and Chai. Blushes like Pink Swoon and Peaches are wonderful.

Me: Are there any specific creams you like using to prep skin for make-up?
Vipul Bhagat:
I use MAC Studio Mositure Fix. I use other creams from the Body Shop and MAC

Me: And last but not least, can you name any of the products you used on Shveta Jaishanker for her wedding?
Note: If you have no clue who she is (which I didn’t, I had to Google her), she is a former Miss India and is a model.

Vipul Bhagat: I used Kryolan foundation. Then, I used Spice lip liner to outline and then filled it in with Cosmo lipstick. I lined her eyes with Smolder eye kohl and finished with a L’Oreal mascara. For blusher, I used Pink Swoon.
Note: except the foundation, they’re all MAC products in case you were feeling lost. Also, this is my personal recommendation since he doesn’t specify the exact mascara, try voluminous. It is my all time favourite mascara.

Great post. I love Bobbi Brown foundations...the whole yellow tones thing is great for us Indians.
Also Shveta is also the wife of Mahesh Bhupathi the tennis star, I guess. She is very pretty...has great skin.

Be aware when conducting an image search for rolex replica Barcelona armchairs, particularly if young children are nearby. I innocently entered that exact phrase, "Barcelona chairs" with a normal Google search and came upon what seems to be the lower part part of a nude police woman in strappy sandals sitting on a Barcelona chair, strategically flashing her badge as if it were a fig leaf. Either that or her policeman friend allow her to borrow it for modesty?s sake. A genuine Barcelona chair can be as luxurious the replica wallets way it gets. You simply need to be sure that you're obtaining the genuine thing. There are many imitations available and in case you do not know exactly what the difference is, you may get scammed into getting a fake. So take a couple of minutes to find out what we know of the Barcelona chair and after that get out there and buy one for your self. It really is important to use good sense when you're ordering a geniune Barcelona chair. Avoid websites that aren't secure and that have bad photos and do not will let you zoom in on it. Even though you can still buy your chair in a high-end designer furniture store, I strongly recommend buying it online when you will get a much better deal and economize like that! Many people though, like me, did not even realize that there was people making cheap imitations of high-end chairs. And that is exactly why there are so many of them, because a many individuals are not aware of these scams and don't have a good long look at the chair that they're ordering. So if you're getting ready to buy the coolest and most well-known chair ever, please take a few minutes to read this and learn precisely what to find in the authentic Barcelona chair! A geniune Barcelona chair, what is the matching couch? The joy of owning the whole collection! Great question! Yes, there is a matching Barcelona couch and it is absolutely beautiful and soo comfortable! I just ordered my Barcelona couch and I cannot wait to make my living room area in to the "Barcelona" room! One time I first sat on a Barca chair. It was last years? Superbowl, while everyone else in the gucci belts group was critiquing the street cred of Eminem?s iced tea commercial, I was admiring the soft width of white aniline leather. In comparison towards the chair Barcelona, the other furniture looked like cheap floozies that might pose naked with a Barcelona armchair wearing strappy sandals for money. As far as it is with a chair, Barcelona needs no added sex appeal. It might be James Bond of modern leather furniture. The Barca chair is practically sporting a tuxedo, ordering a martini shaken, not stirred, and wooing a beautiful woman to sit down within its lap, for her own protection as well as. The omega replica lines are so clean, the shape so firm and substantial, the legs so elegant and perfectly curved; the Barcelona armchair has got some guns.
