My husband & I left for Singapore the next morning after breakfast. We lost a couple of hours to the time difference, so by the time we landed it was already dark. The 2 hour flight delay didn’t help either. We reached our hotel at 11.30 pm, tired and hungry. So I quickly ordered for dinner in the room, and while we unpacked for the 3rd & last time on this trip, I made it amply clear to my husband that I wouldn’t be able to (read: flat our refused to) get ready at 8 am the next morning for the city tour.

You’ve seen the pictures. And I’ve got only positive feedback about my makeup! Then again, do brides ever get negative comments on how they are looking?

I got my Sangeet, Wedding and Reception makeup from Mona at b:blunt, Greater Kailash 2, New Delhi. They charge INR 9,000* for smaller functions, and INR 14,500* for the big ones – if you come to GK2 to get your makeup done. If you want them to travel to your venue, you pay double. *figures and facts true as of October, 2012
