Recreate her simply dazzling look in the popular soap.
Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi, the new television show being aired on Colors TV that’s raking in the TRPs takes its spellbound audience on a whirlwind journey of a unique one-sided love story. The show, produced by Ekta Kapoor under the Balaji Telefilms banner, is based on the life of two protagonists, Ishaani and Ranveer, who are close friends. The story unravels when Ranveer (played by Shakti Arora) fallsin love with his best friend but circumstances conspire such that he ends up playing match maker between Ishaani and another man. It’s a love story with a difference, one that takes you through all the emotions associated with friendship and unrequited love narrated from the male protagonist’s point of view. The plot is refreshing and brings back memories of true friendships, loyalty and trust.
Radhika Madan plays the role of Ishaani, the female lead as well as Ranveer'slove interest in the serial. Radhika Madan, a Delhi girl who always wanted to become a choreographer was shocked when she was selected as the lead. She was a dance instructor in a popular dance academy in Delhi before bagging the role of Ishaani in Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi. This sexy Delhi kudi has an appealing innocence and cuteness that contrasts well with Ranveer's reserved personality. An insider reveals that Radhika took Gujarati lessons on the sets from veteran actress Sarita Joshi who plays her grandmother on the show.
It’s obvious that Radhika has left no stone unturned to get under the skin of Ishaani’s character. Her look is that of a well-to-do girl from a rich Gujarati family but her style is kept simple and fresh. We truly adore her cute salwar kurta and traditional nose pin look.A naturally flushed, flawless matte face and soft pink lips make Ishaani the cutest TV serial actress today. If you want to recreate her look, here’s how you can do so using minimal products.
Create a clear matte face with the right base
Ishaani sports a perfect spotless, matte face without contouring and highlight. She portrays a simple girl who's comfortable in her own skin.
• To achieve a perfect matte base start by choosing a mattifying BB cream like Revlon Photo Ready BB cream or Rimmel 9 in 1 BB cream SPF 25. • Dot it all over your face and smoothen it with a foundation brush like Kent TWMU8 Foundation Brush. • To conceal dark spots or pigmentation, use a matte concealer like Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Concealer on the areas you want to conceal and blend in the edges. • As a final step, apply Maybelline Dream Matte Pressed Powder using a Colorbar First Impressions Powder Brush all over your face and neck to give an even, matte finish.
Sport heavily kohled eyes like Ishaani
It feels as though Ishaani can say a million words with her expressive eyes without uttering a sound. She has beautiful brown eyes that she highlights using dark, thick eyeliner on the upper lash line and heavy black kohl on the bottom lash line.
• Use a gel liner like Revlon Colorstay Creme Gel Eye Liner and apply it with the eyeliner brush that comes with the product. • Gel liners—a completely versatile product—can be used on both the upper and lower lash line. They are a must-have in your vanity case. • Kohl lovers should opt for a long stay, darkly pigmented formula like Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate.
Make your cheeks rosy and flushed
A little bit of flush on the cheeks never harmed anyone. The trick is to keep the look as natural as possible like Ishaani does.
• Use an earth toned blush like Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush, Shade Creamy Cinnamon or Max Factor Flawless Perfection Blush, Shade Classic Rose. • Apply it lightly on the cheek bones with a blush brush like Vega Blush Brush.This will add definition to the face without going overboard.
Pink lips, pink lips!!
Tinted pink lips makes Ishaani’s look very pretty and girly. Besides, the hue works well with a matte face and kohl-loaded eyes.
• Apply a soft pink lip balm tint like the Max Factor Lipfinity Lasting Lip Tint Shade Pink Petalon your lips for a more subtle look. • However if you prefer lipstick formulas, opt for a rose pink shade like Lakme 9 To 5 Matte Lip Color, Shade Tea Break for a more lasting tint.
The finishing touches
Complete Ishaani’s look by accessorizing with a nice nose diamond stud and blow dry your hair after using a moisturizing serum like FX Brazilian Smooth Keratin Silk Serum to achieve voluminous straight hair. Ishaani also loves sporting over-sized traditional earrings. Give the trend a try. It’s time to raid your mom’s jewelry box!
