Babita Jaishankar, best describes a Woman with Zeal and Confidence. She encompasses both a designer and a fashion image consultant in her. Her achievements are many including the mention in the book called; ‘Inspiring women to start innovative enterprises’ by Sria Majumdar.

With her professional and personal life she has set the example of living life in multi spectrums is an effortless thing. Babita believes in Norman Vincent Peale’s quote, “It takes struggle, a goal and enthusiasm to make a champion.”

How did image consulting happen to you?

I started my designing career after completing a diploma course in fashion designing from GIFT, Ahemedabad. In the beginning my focus was purely designing for individuals based on their lifestyle needs. I moved to the US after this – where over a period of 5 years, I had an opportunity to learn and do consulting in the area of skin and cosmetics. On my return, I realized that my true interest lay in designing not just dresses, but helping people look their best through a combination of attire that suits their lifestyle and personality, and cosmetics that enhances their appearance and image. In addition, I also liked to meet people from various backgrounds – applying my image makeover ideas to meet the varying needs of women from different walks of life challenged and interested me. The idea of an image consulting business was then born.

Could you please tell us something about your family and you as a person?

I have 2 daughters (ages 8 and 12). My husband works in the IT industry. Even though I am pretty busy, I am proud to say that I also run the household single handedly – this includes keeping the house in order, and ensuring that the kids get their meals on time, snacks on return from school and paying attention to their academics and nutritional needs, among a score of other nitty gritties that are part and parcel of being a homemaker.
I am a fun loving and gregarious person. I love company of friends and relatives. I have always been interested in makeup, colors and dressing. I am also driven in business and professional life – a deep interest in my line of work and desire to succeed are the prime driving forces.

According to you what kind of make – up should a model and a corporate lady choose?

While using the makeup always try to remember what is the image that you want to potray; is it that of a glamrous lady or a confident and successful lady.

While doing the makeup for a model it is good to use the colour cosmetics that are in trend to accentuate the best features. Some glimmer and glamour will take her a long way.

A corporate lady – if she is not comfortable using a foundation, she can just get away with concealer and tinted moisturizer. A kajal, mascara and a tint or gloss on the lip will give her a look of sophistication and poise.

If a girl is getting ready for a beauty pageant audition, what kind of make –over do you recommend her?

No matter what hair style you are choosing, only thing you have to keep in mind is that; it has to be well shampooed and conditioned, as it gives a healthy look. Getting a trim done takes care of the split ends. Use the styling products to keep the hair in place so you are not fiddling with the hair.

Eyes are that part of your face; if done well can give you a glamorous yet elegant look. The eye makeup should complement the color of your eye. Use of mascara (or false eyelashes) can open up your eyes and make it look dreamy.

Be careful if the foundation used is warm tone or cool tone. If the foundation is not chosen according to the color profile and skin type of the individual, it can give a made-up look or a very tired look; highlighting the under eye circles.

A glimmer powder on the cheekbone, under the arch of the eyebrows, peak of the nose and forehead gives a look of healthy skin.

Are there any make – up style that would go along with any kind of outfit?

Well done eye makeup and a nude lip to go with it.

Very often it is seen that we end – up in bad hair days, could you please suggest some quick and easy tips to get away with bad hair days?

I suggest not to complicate things, keep it simple .Give it a more crushed look, use a serum to give shine and use a spray with water and pinch of salt. This spray will keep the hair in place.
Just use the serum and roll a small section of hair on your fingers to give it more natural curls.

What are the factors to be kept in mind, while picking clothes?

You can boost your attitude, self – confidence and feel good about what you are wearing if you:

  • Know the occasion
  • Know your audience
  • Know your personal style
  • Know the effects of colour

Could you please suggest some hair styles that could suit any kind of face shape?

Soft feathering along the length of the face suits most of the face shape the only thing to be kept in mind is the length of the hair.
