INTRODUCING MY NEWEST CONTENT SERIES: ✨👸🏽🧚🏽‍♀️ An ode to thyself 🧚🏽‍♀️👸🏽✨ PART 1: A visual representation of self-love, self-expression, self-empowerment and self-worth ❣️❣️❣️ inspired by @maccosmeticaustralia’s newest Love Me Lipstick collection 💓 This collection is a celebration of YOU, to feel empowered to express yourself however you feel, featuring silky and nourishing in 24 power shades (nudes, reds and purples) 🥵 — This first look is an ode to my Australian-Indian identity, representing both a cultural and modern aesthetic. 🎾💫 It’s a celebration of no longer being in cultural limbo; the displacement of never feeling Indian enough to be Indian, or Australian enough to be Australian is no longer. We’ve found a new, reclaimed space. This remix of identities is my power 🦋💄💪🏽✨ __ On my lips I’m wearing a combo of @macosmeticaustralia’s ‘Bated Breath’ and ‘Daddy’s Girl’ from the LOVE ME collection – this colour is literally the perfect pinky nude for my brown skin. #MACAustralia #MACPartner #Collab

We’re taking our notes from the iconic Indian starlet, Priyanka Chopra. Here, she shows us that it’s possible to dazzle with just a bold hint of colour.

3. Peach, Please

We love an edgy moment, and this can easily be executed with a splash of peach shadow and a plum-lip shade to complement the look, as seen on British model-journalist, Simran Randhawa.
