Indian actress and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been representing India at the Cannes Film Festival for over a decade - once as a jury member, then for a movie and multiple times for a cosmetic brand. She says wearing make-up is part of her lifestyle as she belongs to the glamour industry, but she really feels it is as good as music in setting her mood for a day.
The world has seen the blue-eyed beauty in different characters in films whether it was the vulnerable prisoner in 'Provoked', the beautiful Bengali girl in 'Devdas', the young Gujarati girl in 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam' or an angry sister in 'Sarbjit'. Interestingly, make-up has played a crucial role in building up her on-screen characters.
"I think we all love to play with colours to create something that reflects on every creative aspect of life -- be it make-up, be it fashion... It works like a mood uplifter. So, I think make-up is like music, it's like a creative energy, it uplifts and sets your mood," said Aishwarya. The actress, who always experiments with her lip colours and eye shadows and at times gets criticism as well, spoke about how she celebrates the power of make-up as part of her daily life.“We are in a profession where we are working day and night, and still have to meet people in a certain way.
I might have a sleepless night with my child but the next day when I am going for a professional meeting, people shouldn't get the vibe that ‘Oh God! She is tired'," said Aishwarya and added, “ There comes the make-up. I get ready every morning with my lipstick, mascara and basic make-up... That gets me a fresh energy. I also think that since I have been working for so many years now, it has become a part of my life.”
