Maison Lancôme launched its refurnished store at Select City Walk Mall in the capital recently. The unveiling was attended by every beauty and makeup lover in the city. Celebrity makeup artist Stafford Braganza also graced the event and told us all about his favourite Lancôme products. Here’s the lowdown.
Stafford Braganza: Hi my name is Stafford Braganza. I am the national makeup artist for Lancome India. I started my career with Lancome 19 years ago in the United States. And Almost 19 years later I am now here in India heading the artistry team and also makeup education.
Maison Lancome reopened its doors to its loyal followers at Select City Walk Mall, Saket recently and the launch event was an extravagant affair. Celebrity makeup artist Stafford Braganza graced the occasion with his presence and had a little chat with us about his favourite products from the brand’s new range. Here’s what he had to say;
Stafford Braganza: So my five favourite products from Lancome goes as follows;
First we have ‘Genifique’, Genifique is a miracle in a bottle, I can call it. It is a serum that actually prepares your skin for makeup to actually come on. It’s a very light serum it actually works on a gene technology so when you put it on it prepares your skin and in a long run your skin feels very soft and supple and it actually regenerates our new skin cells and makes the skin even more softer.
#2 Le Crayon Khol
My next product is ‘Le Crayon Khol’, Le Crayon khol in other words would be called ‘kaajal’ pencil but I like to call it khol pencil because unlike a kaajal this product will not smudge unless you want it to smudge. This is a good product to actually wear during the day time and with a little swish of your fingers on your lashes it actually gives you a very soft smokey look and this can be actually used along with your eye shadow palette which is also one of my favourite.
#3 Hypnose Eyeshadow Palette
This is called the ‘Hypnose’ palette style 1. For all you ladies out there that want one palette for evening and night look we have this one because you have your light colours then you have your darker colours.
#4 L’ Absolu Rouge’ number 134
My favourite red lipsticks in Lancome it’s called. L’Absolu Rouge’ number 134. This red lipstick is actually very good for most Indian skin tones because we Indians have yellow undertones so picking the right red lipstick is very very important. So number 134.
#5 Tient Miracle
And finally last but not the least I have ‘Tient Miracle’. Tient miracle is again another foundation that Lancome introduced couple of years ago but this will still remain my favourite only because this product has 40% of water and having 40% of water in your foundation really hydrates the skin.
