My Photoshoot with The Body Shop India

The Body Shop Make Me Gorgeous Challenge

I did a photoshoot with The Body Shop India recently. Their makeup artist, Vandana, won the makeup artist contest at the India level. She had to do one makeover to compete at the International level. The Body Shop sort of “chose” me as the face for their international competition. I gladly agreed. πŸ™‚

I was running fever the day I did this photoshoot but didn’t want to cancel it because all the arrangements were done. I hope you like the pics. πŸ™‚

These are the before and the after pics. πŸ™‚




Final Look


Just want to thank The Body Shop. I had fun. πŸ™‚ And loads of wishes to Vandana. Hope she wins. πŸ™‚

You can check out the step by step pics on their Facebook page Β HERE

    1. shivani guess it’s for rs 1100. SHivani they have only one shade in that and that would work for fair skin tones. For me they were using only as a base and there was layering of products done so it kinda worked.
