She’s made for camera! You might’ve caught her on TV, she’s a VJ for MTV And she’s been on the hottest reality TV shows like Roadies 14 and Bigg Boss 11 So we gotta call her and I’m gonna ask her how she does her makeup while working from home So without any further ado, let’s call VJ Benafsha Soonawalla! Hey Simmy Goraya what’s up? Hi Benafsha, how are you doing? Welcome to our channel! Btw, I’ve been watching your lockdown content, and I must say you’re really funny! I didn’t know that you had this side to you! Thank you so much! I’m so glad that you’re loving the videos Because actually in this quarantine, I’ve been super bored And I’ve been figuring what’s that 1 thing that I could do that could keep me entertained and productive And this is the one thing that I found, I’m super glad! Actually, for people like us who’ve done a show like Big Boss; this is just another Bigg Boss So it’s like, I’ve already done my lockdown 1.
0 in the Bigg Boss House So it’s like you guys are the new Bigg Boss participants So how is Bigg Boss going so far for you? Not good, Not good! I hope the season Finale happens really soon Because I’m done with it already! Honestly, it’s been like Bigg Boss ka ghar since past 3 months So, yeah! But anyway, how are you managing with your VJ life and schedule and everything in the lockdown? So, unfortunately because of the lockdown stuff happening, the VJ life is on a hold But luckily I have shoot later on in the day, so I’m super excited to get dressed, do my makeup And get on the set, and jump right back into the VJ life! Perfect, so I feel like I’ve called you at the right time! Would you mind sharing a few makeup tips or makeup hacks that you generally use while you’re getting ready? So, I have moisturized and primed my skin And I’m super excited to start with the base look But before we get into it, I have a question for Simmy! And the question is: What is your favourite foundation? Okay, so my favourite foundation is L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Foundation In the shade 106: Sun Beige Now this is something that matches my skin tone perfectly, first of all Second, it’s a medium to full coverage foundation, so you can build it up! So, guys I am gonna take one pump of this foundation on the back of my hand And I’m going to use a damp beauty blender And I’m gonna start applying it directly on my face You know, I think it is a force of habit; I like to start from my cheek area and then I go backwards And whenever you are applying it on the centre of your face You wanna use the back side of the back of the beauty blender Because you get maximum coverage out of it So, just gonna buff the product into my skin once I’ve applied it.
So, Benafsha the next product I have with me is the L’Oréal Paris Super Liner Gel Intenza Now I like to use this product as my eyeshadow sometimes, as my Kajal sometimes So I think it works really well both ways But today, I think I’m gonna go for a soft-smudged eyeliner So, I’m just gonna apply it to the outer corner of my eye Because I just like doing that.
It gives this soft, natural sort of a finish. And then, I’m gonna smoke it out So, I’m done with one eye So while I do my other eye Benafsha, why don’t you tell us how is it inside the Bigg Boss House? I mean, how’s your makeup routine like? Because you are legit waking up in a house that is full of cameras But it’s still a hosue! So, how diid you manage? So that’s a really funny story because I had a very weird relationship with makeup inside the Bigg Boss House! And, there was this one thing I’d do which is very stupid of me So, now the thing is, there are mirrors in the house But very tiny ones and only outside! So the actual mirrors, next to the bathroom area atleast in the house that I was living in was a little blurred out So I could never really see my face, the funny thing is I used to apply a little extra blush.
So this is one makeup disaster that I had inside the house Because TV blush would look so much, they add all over my face When I came back my mom was like “What was you with all that extra blush on your face?” So now whenever I see pictures from Bigg Boss, I’m like, “Oh my god! What is this?” It like two tomatoes on the sides of my cheeks! So it’s a little funny, so that was one makeup disaster that I did in the Bigg Boss’ house That’s actually a really cute story Me and my makeup! 😛 So benafsha, your cute story has reminded me to move on the next step which is also using a blush So I have the L’Oréal Paris Le Bar A Blush with me, in the shade: ‘Play with Me’ And it’s such a nice, cute peachy colour! I feel like it’s not too much, just perfect for the kind of look we are going for! You’re absolutely right Simmy! I feel the same about the very same blush I love the blush as well, because it’s not too much and especially because I have made a mistake like that on national television, on a serious note I’m very careful about my blush And this is the kind of blush that actually gives me the right amount of tint And makes my face look blushy, and cute! 🙂 So I really like this amount and this blush the best! Okay, so I am gonna take my fluffy brush, and this is what I do generally to apply my powder blushes And I’m just gonna tap it on the apples of my cheeks And I am gonna take it all the way to my hair and I’m gonna blend it with my hairline Okay Simmy, so that last and the really cool part about the final base look is obviously the highliter I really love to use the higlighter because it gives the skin such a beautiful glow And especially on the sets with the lights coming at you And when you are speaking all dressed up and decked up, the highlighter really stands out and looks really cool! I 100% really agree with you just said! I am gonna be using the L’Oréal Paris Le Bar A Blush Highlighter In the shade, ‘Be Brave’.
This is a nice, Champagne-ey, soft colour! Which actually goes on a lot of skintones! And it suits all of us Indians really well! So what I am gonna do is, I am gonna use this highlighter brush which is slightly fluffy! And I am gonna place the highlighter right on the high points of my face Benafsha, I really like using this product because it’s got this nice, soft and a creamy texture to it Even though it’s a powder highlighter, it’s sort of creamy! And I feel like it blends with your makeup base and you don’t feel the powdery-ness of this highlighter at all! So when you are on camera, obviously, all your features are more enhanced, and with a highlighter like this It’s a really cool thing because you’re glowing and looking super pretty on camera Perfect! So you know what I am gonna do? so because we are doing on-screen makeup, I’m also gonna apply A little bit on my collar bone and on my shoulder as well! So, while I am doing this, I was actually going through your instagram the other day And I’ve noticed that you’ve released another episode of B for Benafsha and this one was on mental health, so Would you wanna talk a little bit about this? Obviously, we really need to see.
.. the situations are really screaming and telling us That mental health and depression is not a joke, it is a very serious thing I myself, really got out of it by taking the right precautions and taking the right kind of help! I really want to put this out in the world, that its not something that you need to be ashamed of! There are so many things you could do to get yourself out of mental health and depression which is You can probably take therapy, or you can visit a psychiatrist Or you can do a mix of both, or any one of them or Or you can just meditate, do Yoga but there are ways to get over it If you are not okay, you don’t always have to be upset.
You don’t always have to be the same As if the world is horrible, you know? So that’s what I just wanted to convey to the world, and I’m really glad you raised the topic Because the more awareness we put out about it, along with everything else that we put out on social media
