Posts Tagged ‘Aishwarya Rai’

Hi all– thanks for your patience with my long absence! I’ve missed you! I started graduate school this fall and life’s been mad. I’ll try my best to continue to post when I get the chance. Now to business: have you caught the new pictures of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan‘s daughter Aaradhya?

She’s a cutie.

But I couldn’t help but notice something else in this photo– Aishwarya’s pretty watermelon pink nail polish! Anything that keeps summer around a little longer works for me. To emulate, try OPI Nail Polish in Strawberry MargaritaMAC Nail Lacquer in Steamy, a summer 2012 release, is also a great option.

Danqing and I watched the 2008 Bollywood film “Jodhaa Akbar” recently, starring the outrageously perfect Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik Roshan. Ash’s makeup in the film is extremely minimal, and lets her natural beauty shine through.

If this a look you want to go for, start by applying a minimal amount of foundation and concealer, only as necessary. If you use a cream or liquid foundation, I highly recommend using the MAC 187 Duo Fibre brush with the stippling technique to apply; see YouTube for videos on this technique. Using the 187 allows you to apply very little makeup very effectively, to give you that airbrushed look.

After this, choose an eyelid-colored eyeshadow (neutral brown) or skip eyeshadow altogether if desired. Line the upper lashline with black gel eyeliner (MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack). Apply mascara. Finish the look with MAC Lipstick in See Sheer, a “grapefruit pink” lipstick with a hint of shine.

Proud grandfather-to-be Amitabh Bachchan announced an hour ago that his beautiful daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai, Queen of our hearts and of Bollywood, is expecting her first child with husband Abhishek. We at Jolie Asie are so thrilled to hear this news; baby Bachchan will be a gorgeous delight and wonder for India and the world to love!

So what are my quick beauty tips for Aishwarya and for all of the other expecting mothers out there?

1. Watch out for stretch marks! Massage almond oil, Bio Oil, or cocoa butter cream into your stomach, breasts, and knee area to prevent stretching caused by weight gain, the growing baby, and water retention.

2. Stay hydrated and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. It’s important to keep your system as regular as possible, so keep up your fiber intake and enjoy plenty of fluids.

3. Avoid smoke, smog, and alcohol. I hope Aishwarya can get away from the dust and pollution of the big city to enjoy her pregnancy somewhere quiet, peaceful, and close to nature.

4. Look for specialized multivitamins for pregnant women. These vitamins will have adjusted formulas for women who are nourishing their baby as well as themselves!

5. Continue to exercise, but gently. Do some gentle stretching and go for walks with your hubby dearest. Keep the blood flowing by avoiding sitting or lying down for very long periods of time.

Congratulations, Bachchan family, and best of luck to Aishwarya and all of the other ladies out there who are expecting! Take good care of yourselves and relish these special times.

I was flipping through loads of watch catalogues left over from my own watch search as research for a JA Guide to Buying a Watch (coming this Friday!) and came across the catalogue for Longines’ DolceVita line, featuring Aishwarya Rai and Lin Chi-ling (and Kate Winslet).  They both look amazing.  Their makeup is elegant, yet natural at the same time.  You could wear these makeup looks from brunch with girlfriends to picking up groceries to watching your child’s soccer game to having an elegant dinner out.

Those of you who have been following us know I am super psyched for Aishwarya Rai‘s upcoming film directed by Madhur Bhandarkar, “Heroine”. Quick as lightning (filming just started this month), a first look has been leaked!

Can you say stunning and gorgeous?

To get Ash’s look, wear plenty of falsies for lashes like peacock fans. Line the outer third of your upper lashes and lower lashes with black gel liner or eye pencil to create a densely black effect on the outer edges.

Heat up the summer with a bold orange lipstick; try MAC Lipstick in Neon Orange. Add a little clear lipgloss in the center of your lips to give a plumping effect.

Stay tuned for other looks from upcoming Bollywood films… I want to keep you all in the know on the latest makeup trends!

Luxury watch ambassador Aishwarya Rai made a pink ‘n’ peach statement at the recent 163 Prix de Diane Longines race in France. Check out her glow! Try pairing an unabashedly peach blush (MAC Powder Blush in Peaches) with rose- or mauve-pink lips (MAC Lipstick in Fast Play) the next time you’re wearing a lovely peach dress to get Aishwarya’s look.

When I was younger I used to love Aishwarya Rai‘s innocent, youthful look in the 2000 film “Josh”, co-starring Shahrukh Khan. I wanted to look just like her when I grew up!

Now, fine, straightened hair might be all the rage, but looking gorgeous like Ash is timeless. If you’ve got the guts, I say go for the big, natural hair! Flip your head upside down and blowdry your wet hair, drying from the roots down. When you flip your hair back up you will have volume galore.

To get Aishwarya’s young makeup look, apply a moisturizing cream foundation (MAC Mineralize Foundation SPF 15). Sweep a pinky-beige eyeshadow (MAC Eye Shadow in Malt) over your lid. Using a black eye pencil (MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder), dot over the lash line then smudge thoroughly to fade out. Apply your favorite mascara. On your lips, wear the lipstick that was highly popular in the early 2000’s, the matte reddish-brown MAC Lipstick in Taupe.
