At the ELLE Beauty Weekender presented by Tata CliQ, we are celebrating all things beauty and hair with Mehak Oberoi. Recipient of the Dada Saheb Phalke Award for Makeup Artist of the Year 2020, she learnt the art of hair and makeup from Delhi’s Pearl Academy and paved her way up to the Hindi film industry. Join us in a rapid-fire session with Mehak.
ELLE: What is the craziest thing you have done in the name of makeup?
Mehak Oberoi (MO): For my best friends campaign, I did a shoot where I used red spray paint on the models face, and it looked phenomenal. I also did this 17 hour underwater beauty shoot where the model had curly hair and the brief said straight hair, so at one point, the model had to wear a swimming cap. The pictures from that day turned out to be stunning as ever.
ELLE: What does beauty mean to you?
MO: For me, it means being comfortable in your own skin and still evolving into your best self.
ELLE: One makeup trend you will never get over?
MO: Glass skin with flushed cheeks and lots of tint on the lips is one of the most beautiful trends. The second one would be the disco era with lots of glitter and sparkle.
ELLE: What is one beauty product you cannot live without?
MO: Water and sunscreen are the most important to achieve healthy skin.
ELLE: What is your favourite fragrance?
MO: My all-time favourite fragrance would be the Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille along with the Narciso Rodriguez and Chloé.
