Richa Kapoor

Actress, Model, Socialite, Fashion Icon and Fashion Designer Richa Kapoor is the epitome of classic fashion, in the southern Indian city of Chennai. Her brand (Jai Maa and Eagle fashions) represents energy, passion and empowerment of "today’s woman" to walk the red carpet of life.

Her style is classic, bohemian, funky and chic with a lot of appeal. She sees her creation as feminine, loose, relaxed, casual and charming. She creates timeless collections with an attitude, yet free spirited, whimsical with earthy sensuality, reflecting comfort and individuality.

Her creation is about mixing the old with the new, trendy with classics and vintage, with loose cuts, ruffles and layers. Her creations are often said to be inspired by nature and the fabrics she prefers are natural; cottons, cotton tusser, hand woven fabric. She displays intricate handwork in her designs which are uniquely embedded with handwork, beaded embroideries, rich antique pita and ethnic thread giving her creations a rich and classic feel with hints of retro and boho chic attached to them.

“I see my designs as an expression of my aspirations with limitless boundaries, always ahead in time.”

Nail Trends 2017

NAIL TRENDS

If your resolution for 2017 is to try something new, we got just the thing for you! Inspired by the catwalks the hottest nail trends for you to try is here. Come on you know you want to, try it and let your hands do the talking.

Black is back!

Black

Simple and chic, black is back, dark nails was spotted all over the catwalk, as seen on Aalto S/S catwalk. This look can easily be recreated, by applying a dark pigmented polish all over the nails such as SensatioNail’s Midnight Rendezvous or alternatively you can try another dark shade such as SensatioNail’s Black Plum with a tint of purple. Perfect for day and night with its edgy gothic twist.

Stay Neutral

Neurtral

Spotted on the Oscar De La Renta catwalk and many celebrities. This look is in strong contrast to the black. The plain Jane barely-there nail look can be recreated by applying a clear varnish all over the nail, or alternatively a sheer nude shade which will add a hint of colour onto the nail. Do try the SensatioNail’s Barely there or So Rosy gel colours, great for Spring/Summer or when you're looking for a pretty, yet barely there look.

Pop till you drop

Color Pop

Vivid and punchy colours are here to stay!! Bright and bold tones with a twist of colour contrast are right on trend, as spotted on the Jeremy Scott catwalk. This trend is summer perfection. Start practising now and get it down to a T, with the SensatioNail’s Pink Purple People Eater and Island Hopper. To funk it up apply a second shade in a circular shape in the middle of the nail with SensatioNail’s Kiwi Squeeze or even Tropical punch.

Go Graphic

Graphic Nails

This look has been seen almost everywhere and is set to be the biggest trend of 2017. Go crazy graphic and create any nail art your heart desires, from negative spacing, dots, prints and even cartoons, there is no end to what you can create. Our favourite design was spotted at the Christian Siriano show. Consisting of block colours and stripes, these funky fingers are super easy to create. Start by painting half your nail in a blue and the other half white, using gel colours like SensatioNail’s, Mint and White Lily. Once that is dry, use nail strips to create the black graphic lines. Party or festival, this is the perfect nail look.

Makeup Trends 2017

Make Up Trends 2017

We are 16 days into the new year and now there is no more turning back, 2017 is officially in full swing. The excitement of a new year is the new things it brings and we are jumping for joy for all the new beauty trends this year will bring.

Here is our quick guide on what’s hot for 2017 and how to get the look.

Minimal Madame

Minimal Madame

The barely there, makeup look continues its reign of popularity. Keep your face fresh and dewy with minimal colour and product. Embryolisse Lait Crème Concentre £20, is the one product makeup artists swear by. Use it as a makeup base to moisturise and transform your skin in an instant. Giving you a dewy and youthful finish. It also doubles up as a repairing mask and primer too. Natural and untouched looking brows, are key to this look, achieve this with the Lord & Berry’s Must Have £14, a brow mascara that locks stray hairs into place whilst also adding a subtle tint.

Finish off the look with a soft and subtle touch of nude lipstick- to recreate an English rose shade with the Lord & Berry’s 20100 Lip Crayon in Charme £12, giving a subtle hint of pink, its creamy texture adding moisture to your lips.

Color Chic

Colour Chic

Bright bold popping colour is key for 2017. A bold lip such as PPQ’s Lilac theme is a must this year. As seen on the catwalk, models were sporting the Lord & Berry’s Lip Crayon in La Fiesta, £14. Highly pigmented with a creamy texture, this lip colour will show that you are fearless, so embrace it. However, if bright bold and fearless is too much for the office try the Lord & Berry’s Timeless Kiss-proof in Bold Red £15 to make a subtle statement. A liquid lipstick that dries matte, is long lasting and smudge proof, perfect for all those Valentines kisses.

Glow Baby

Glow me baby

Another trend that is here to stay so highlight and shimmer away for healthy youthful glowing skin. To achieve this look, apply a highlighter such as the Lord & Berry’s Luminizer stick £14 on the bridge of your nose, cheekbones and on your cupids-bow this will give the illusion of a smaller nose, higher defined cheekbones and fuller lips.

For an all over dewy glow to your face, perfect for summer, apply the Transformulas 23 Carat Hydration Gold £41.95. This crème instantly illuminate and adds a hint of 23 carat gold shimmer to the skin. As and added boots is it contains hyaluronic acid that hydrate the skin, help promote collagen and keeps your complexion youthful.

Blush Me Up result

Lastly, another trend that will hit us in 2017 will be the return of the blush-woo! Spotted on the 2016 catwalk in 2017 we will see this trend evolve with blusher now being used across the temples and eyes-adding a stronger and more daring edge.

To achieve this look, apply a blusher such as Lord & Berry’s blush in Lotus, £18 along the cheekbones in a sweeping motion with a brush such as Brushworks Blush Brush £6.99, giving you a soft and subtle rosy glow ready for the day ahead.
