When I heard from the Chanel team that it would collaborate with my luxury blog Explosive Fashion for an EXCLUSIVE beauty shoot [once again!] with Chanel's International Makeup Artist Dominique Papadopoulos recreating the hottest International beauty trends… I was thrilled beyond belief!! Reminiscing about the shoot that took place last month, Chanel and Jean-Claude Biguine commandeered it in St. Regis Mumbai from morning till sundown where supermodel Surelee Joseph posed for sensual looks, styled by Nisha Jhangiani, and shot by Vijit Gupta. Here, I present stunning photographs depicting hot make-up trends which complement Indian skin tone — with a beauty report on how you can get the look!!
