We are officially in love! Its raining hotness in Bollywood twice as hard this season! The lass from the neighboring land of Sri Lanka, the gorgeous Jacqueline Fernandez will be seen in a double role in Roy that releases today. The actress playing dual personalities, the vivacious Ayesha and serene Tia romances the two yummiest men of Bollywood, Arjun Rampal and Ranbir Kapoor, respectively. The film revolves around a thief (Ranbir Kapoor) a confident yet brazen director (Arjun Rampal) and the coy, romantic Jacqueline Fernandez. Produced by Divya Khosla Kumar, Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar, Roy has been directed by debutant Vikramjit Singh. Back to Jackie O. The actress who won the Style Icon Award at the Stardust Awards recently, has always been complimented for her style. Her constant fashionable appearances have always turned heads and her trendy style in Roy has left audiences asking for more.
As an art enthusiast her character Tia sports a retro glam look and a faux bob hair style as romances every girl's heartthrob, Ranbir Kapoor. As Ayesha the carefree movie director, she dresses very casually with long tresses tumbling past her shoulders, bracelets jingle jangling on her arms as she plays Arjun Rampal's love interest.
The buzz is that she took her role very seriously and went all out to make the twin characters as believable as possible. Ayesha the avant-garde wears one of Jacqueline's own creations, a string of chains she designed as she dances to the tunes of Sooraj Dooba Hai. The actress even got herself inked with three different tattoos; 'love' on a finger, a 'key' on her neck and a 'third-eye' on the back of her neck. Her character always pairs one long earring with a stud. Looking chic in various nerdy frames and a slightly messy look, Jacqueline is every bit the lively Ayesha she plays in the film in real life as well.
But of all her stunning makeovers there were two outstanding looks we fell in love with; perfectionist red lips paired with beautifully set hair, and retro eye makeup which she had to have been hiding under vintage style eyewear. This retro-glam look is both classic and fashionable. It's all about contouring; a sexy flicked out eyeliner and pillow box red lips! If you love a little retro then try this out for a modern take on a classic style. With the fabulous range available at Nykaa and my awesome team I have decided to break down this look for you.
The Retro Glam look decoded
Start by applying a thin even layer of Rimmel Match Perfection SPF 18 Foundation. Use Vega Foundation Brush (PB-17) to apply the formula and work it well into the skin. Then use Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer to conceal blemishes and dark under-eye circles. Set foundation by powdering over your handiwork with Natio Loose Powder. This is an important step before contouring. Use Natio Pressed Powder Bronzer to sculpt your face. Work it under cheekbones, on temples, along the hairline and jawbone. As any 1950 retro fan will recall Hollywood retro glam was big on contouring.
Now let's get to the eyes. Use a nude matte eye shadow like Max Factor Earth Spirits Eye Shadow– Almond all over the lids and blend it into the crease line. Then go over it using NYX Professional Makeup Dream Catcher Palette with the Vega Eye Brush (PB-15). I simply adore this shade by the way and use it all the time. In fact, I would highly recommend it as a "must have" in your make up bag!!
Use the brush and blend the two shades into the socket crease. The brow shape is also really important; in the '50s brows were pointed towards the top and curved underneath. I created this shaped with the Lakme Black Eyebrow Pencil and the Kent TWMU1 Angled Eyebrow Brush.
Now onto "THE FLICK". To get the perfect flick, please see my tutorial on how to create winged eyeliners from the past. I created this with the L'Oreal Paris Super Liner 24 Hour Waterproof and the Real Techniques Silicone Liner Brush. Use a black pencil eyeliner on the upper water line. I chose to use the Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Liner Pencil. Then curl lashes using the Vega Premium Eyelash Curler before applying black mascara to the top and bottom lashes. I then finished the eyes with a cream colored eyeliner on the lower waterline.
Finish the look with a little extra contouring and a light blush like Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush. I then applied a powder highlighter to the high points of the cheek bones using the Revlon Highlighting Palette. Finish up with a red lip liner like Lakme 9 to 5 Lip Liner– Red Alert and then apply a matte red lipstick like Maybelline Color Sensational Bold Matte- No. 4.
It's such a striking look, I can't wait to give this one a go. Who's with me?
