Beauty Oct 24, 2019

Iconic celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff who has worked with Kate Bosworth, Margot Robbie and Priyanka Chopra dishes on key beauty tips and tricks with her exclusive collab with Winners. Check out what you need in your fall beauty bag just in time for Diwali!

After we settled down with some coffee we immediately started talking about our love for South Asia. I was surprised to discover that Pati has always had a spiritual connection with India. She showed me her Indian name “Prema” necklace and counts India as one of her long-time favourite meditation destinations. The country holds such a spiritual connection to her that she had her wedding in Ganeshpuri. So of course when talking about South Asian skin tones, what we should (and shouldn’t be doing) and the key beauty looks for the festive season including Diwali, she was the perfect person to ask!

Bonus Pro-Tip From Pati (and what she learned from Priyanka when it comes to foundations)

When using foundation don’t rely on just one foundation shade for your whole face. Everyone has different tones that need to be highlighted. Don’t forget you need to create a dimension.

I always start with the neck. I’ll match the shade of the neck to the centre of the face. That way there’s a brightness that emanates from the centre of the face moving outwards. The biggest mistake people make is trying to match the cheeks which are usually darker. The key is having lightness through the centre and then the cheek tone for contour.

When it comes to South Asian skin tones, sometimes women can go too golden and not acknowledge that cool tones are also required. Priyanka taught me that. She taught me that golden tones are great but there needs to be some cool tones in there as well to balance out the face.
