My Makeup Bag: Model Beauty Picks

If you read Sapna Magazine 5 or 6 years ago, you might remember “My Makeup Bag.” Every issue, we’d feature readers or contributors and their favorite makeup picks. It was a great way to share tips on products that work well on unique South Asian skin tones!

Well, “My Makeup Bag” is making a comeback. In our first edition, check out tips from 3 models who made submissions to our Model Gallery.

Tarte Cheek Stain in “Flush” is aptly named “because it adds a tinge of color and wakes up your face, giving you this healthy all natural glow,” says model Shahnee Zaver. “The effect is as if you’ve just been for a run.” Shahnee is also ingredient-conscious: “Tarte products are chemical free, so I always feel good about using their line.”

MAC Viva Glam Gaga Lipstick: Model Leah Kavita applies two coats of this lipstick on her lips and then tops it with a clear lip gloss. She also loves using this product with a lip brush to give her lips a tempting look. “Apply the lip brush to the lipstick then apply the coated lip brush to the lips,” she says. Using a lip brush can also give you better control when applying your lipstick.

Chanel Soft Touch Eyeshadow in “Black Star” is a shimmery shadow that model Radhika Arora applies around her eyes using Chanel’s angled liner brush. “You can simply use it to give your eyes…more depth,” says Radhika. For a smudgy look, she coats a base crayon or liquid-gel eyeliner with the shadow before applying. Since her eyes are sensitive, she loves that the product is hypoallergenic.

  1. where are her credentials as a model ? the author of this article shouldn’t make such false statements for the readers.

  2. apparently you can upload pics and this magazine will select you as a model…it’s that easy.
