Bobby Chopra made a foray into the glamour industry with a stint at MTV’s hit show Roadies. Fabulous and enterprising at a young age, she combined opportunity with talent to pursue her passion – the glorious art of makeup. Bob Chop Makeovers, her freelance makeup agency, makes for an inspiring success story that we at FashionForRoyals truly respect.
This is what the bright and beautiful Bobby Chopra has to say about Bob Chop Makeovers:
Bobby: I love makeup, bling and smiling faces, and this is the basic instinct I followed in setting up Bob Chop Makeovers. The idea is to create magic with a makeup palette and I am happy to say that I think we have managed to do that and again. Maybe that’s why we have managed to come so far, for we are passionate about what we do and aspire to make others happy. We started small, but today have experience in all areas of the industry – celebrity makeup, photo-shoots, bridal makeovers, ramp regimes, tutorials and more.
Q: Do you have any pre-bridal regime tips for glowing skin? Our readers would love to know…
Bobby: I get this question a lot. And I understand why – every bride wants to look stunning on her big day. The thing is, the worst and most common problem Indian brides face is tanning. I can tell you from personal experience that the best solution for tan removal is oats. An absolute wonder for people with oily skin, oats can help lighten skin to original complexion naturally and in relatively less time. Here’s a pack you can try – Take a tbsp of oats and almonds each and grind them together. Mix the powder with rose water to form a paste. Use this as a scrub-cum-pack. Scrub your face with water and the mix, leave it on for 15 minutes and then rinse off with cold water. Preferably, do this at night and follow up with a good night cream. Then watch the layers of tan come off, slowly and steadily!
Q: What are some of your favourite makeup products?
Bobby: Ooooh, that’s a tough one. But I have some all-time favourites that I swear by. One is the range of Inglot’s AMC Eye Pigments – they have the most amazing glittery particles; I love that! Then there’s M.A.C.’s Studio Fix SPF Fluid Foundation. I mix that with Inglot’s AMC Shiner and trust me, it looks wonderful on everyone and stays intact, even in Summers. Then there’s Bobby Brown’s Shimmer Bars and Sweetheart by Two Faced – these are the best highlighters I have come across so far. In terms of lipstick, I like the Melted Lip Colours range by Two Faced – my personal go-to shade is Sugar. And then… Actually this could go on forever, the list is too long! So I guess, I’ll stop with that for now.
Q: Recommend some products you think all brides should buy.
Bobby: Um, okay. So in my opinion, every bride-to-be should use only Inglot, M.A.C. or Bobbie Brown foundations on and before the D-Day. On your cheeks, go on for Two Faced’s Sweetheart which is a brilliant blusher-cum-highlighter. Use both primer and mascara by Benefit. For your lips, Melted Sugar by Two Faced will be best. And not just brides, I think eventually, everyone should invest in quality makeup products for best results.
