Two days ago, MAC Cosmetics invited the fashion bloggers in the city for the preview of their Summer-Spring 16 collection along with a presentation by Sonic Sarwate – A Global Senior Makeup Artist. The theme of the presentation was ‘All or Nothing’ which celebrates the idea of everything from strong statements to confident minimalism that’s fresh, raw and radiant.
I was so glad to have a li’l chat with the Star of the event- Sonic Sarwate and get some makeup tips and must haves for the season for all you lovely readers. Here’s how it went:
Where are you from? How long have you been in the makeup Industry?
I’m from Mumbai. I have been in the Industry for about 14 years.
What interested you in this industry? Did you study makeup at a school?
I have always loved colors and enjoy playing around with them. I studied makeup at a school in Delhi.
What is makeup to you?
Make-up is self expression with colors.
What’s the SS-16 collection all about? How can one work the new shades?
Summer’s going to be all about Blues, Aquatic shades, Neon, Reds and subtle Bronze. It’s not about wearing a big smoky eye but making a statement in your own way. Go for colors, but add your own personality to it. Makeup is not about transformation, but all about making you look better, adding your own version and not looking like somebody else.
What are your two favorite products from MAC?
‘Ruby Woo’ and ‘All Fired Up’
What has been your most favorite work experience so far?
I enjoy working with Manish (Malhotra). He loves experimenting with colors and so do I. I had worked with him for his show in 2012 and it was quite experimental. I think that’s one of the most memorable experiences so far.
What are you must haves for the season?
A Blue Liner, Red Lips, a good Moisturizer and a Concealer that works for your skin.
What is your idea of beach makeup?
Nothing too much. Keep it simple and fresh. And yes! Experiment with colors.
Would you like to give us some skincare tips?
Have a proper skincare routine with pre and post makeup cleansing and use a good sunblock.
Those were some really helpful tips from the man himself.
Coming to the outfit I wore for the event, it was a tangerine skirt with a white collared shirt that I knotted up at the waist. I wore my black lace-ups and a metallic backpack to complete the look.
It was a beautiful event and I’m so glad I met all my fellow bloggers I hadn’t met in a while and few that I met for the first time.
Also tried a shade of orange blush on my cheeks (the last picture) that I can’t stop thinking about!<3
Hope you all enjoyed this post! A lot is coming up on I Dress for the Applause! Stay tuned!
