Vatsan & Tanya Jodhpur : North Indian- South Indian wedding held at Indana Palace, Jodhpur with a grand Maharani theme!

College romances are the great love story of our generation. So what beats a college story? A we-went-to-college-together-but-never-spoke-to-each-other story! Meet our latest, cutest, chirpiest couple Tanya and Vatsan. These two attended college together, only a year apart at BITS Pilani, and never met each other. Yup, that's always going to be the first line of their love story. 

Well, fate decided to intervene yet again, placing them both in Delhi, working and living out of a bungalow during training. Not ones to deny fate, the two promptly met, fell in love and started dating within a month. After 5 years of successfully being together, the question of marriage hung in the air. Tanya being half indian- half irani and Vatsan being from Chennai and raised in Mumbai, one would assume that there were cultural differences and obstacles in their path. Surprisingly, not so! Both families opened their hearts and welcomed the other, recognising that their children were now grown and had chosen a partner for themselves. This wonderful journey has now climaxed to a gorgeous wedding taking place in Indana Palace, Jodhpur

Trending Bridal Makeup: Your Guide To Choosing The Right Bridal Makeup – HD, Mineral, Airbrush or Regular!

You’ve got your wedding dates sorted? Congratulations and all the best! Now begins the real struggle. With the suggestions flooding in, it gets difficult to choose the finest. The first thing that comes to a bride’s mind is her perfect D-Day Look. It is not only your MUA who is responsible, you too must do your homework and know what is trending.
HD, Mineral, Airbrush or Regular, what exactly are they and which one is for you? Read on:


HD Make Up
Ever wondered that how do the celebrities and movie stars manage to have that “oh-so-perfect” look everytime. Makeup does the trick. With the Ultra HD technology comes the HD Make Up. It is lighter in texture and gives a smooth finish. It is formulated to look like your second skin and eliminates cakey feel. What makes HD different from regular makeup? The products are the game-changer.


Airbrush Make Up
The lightest of them all. Airbrush makeup is less messy and does not require brushes or sponges. It is done using an airgun for a glow that looks flawless. The foundation that is best matching your skin tone is poured in the small chamber of the airgun and then sprayed evenly on the face. It is perfect for the brides who have oily skin. It is water-proof so you need not worry while shedding those tears in your “Bidaai”.


Mineral Make Up
If the thought of makeup gives you nightmares, Mineral Make Up is just what you want. Those with sensitive skin will love the fact that mineral make up is natural and conducive for them. These products are made of minerals that are treated and transformed into different shades. Though it is the safest of all, but the coverage is not as flawless as airbrush or HD.


Regular Make Up
Regular application of primer, foundation, concealer and pressed powder, topped off with some blush and highlights. Though overshadowed with the latest trends, Regular Make Up is still the popular choice for many. Providing a variety of colors and textures, it has the easiest application and can be done using fingertips, brushes or a sponge.

Every girl deserves to be the cynosure of all eyes on her wedding day. So we say…indulge a little bit extra and know what is trending. With this guide, we are sure that your Bridal look will be bang on.
