It is not very often that we tend to fall in love with a person who gets to know the real us and strives hard to make every one of our wishes true, in the most divine form. After getting to know about Akriti from Mesmereyes Makeup’s dreamy proposal in the clouds, we can’t help but follow her through her engagement ceremony as well.
One of the classiest affair of an engagement, let’s hear it Akriti from here.
“After the trip, aka the dreamy proposal, we had an engagement ceremony in Crowne Plaza, Chennai on the 20th of January 2018. We also had a Roka, otherwise called as a small engagement, an intimate event with family.
My engagement was for friends, which was a black tie event with men in smart Tuxedos and women in gorgeous gowns.
I went for a modern red carpet look, with a low messy bun. Paired the silver gown with rubies and diamonds.
For both events, I used Hudabeauty lashes 'Camille #16' .. since it was the engagement, I didn't use very dramatic lashes as I wanted to save them for the big day!
My eye-makeup for Roka was a 'Flirtatious' pigment from Mesmereyes Makeup on the centre and inner corner, smoked out with Sketch eyeshadow on the outer corners. My lipstick was a Huda Beauty Liquid Matte in Bombshell.
For the Engagement party, it was a Silver smokey eye-makeup using 'Glitz' glitter from the Mesmereyes range with black eyeshadow on the outer edges. My lipstick was again from Huda Beauty Liquid Matte in Heartbreaker.
My Roka was a fresh subtle look, whereas my engagement was a radiant, dramatic look.
My Roka outfit was by Manish Malhotra. My engagement gown was by Neiman Marcus.
The DJ on the floor was from DJsforU.
Photography needs for the events were taken care of by @zero-gravity# and they did an amazing job.
Decoration purposes were designed by Bezinto, Florals and executed by Mehak.
Makeup, of course was done by myself, Akriti Sachdev at @mesmereyes-makeup#.
We also had a 2 tier cake for the engagement ceremony, designed like us in a hot air balloon with planes and all of that. It was a super adorable surprise from Maaria Tanveer at Adoniya.
We're planning to have a destination wedding in Kodaikanal, in the month of June since we are fond of mountains and the serenity that prevails there. Fingers crossed."
