Just like the greats, Van Gogh, Monet and Picasso – each renowned makeup artist has a signature style of their own: The 90s athletic, Brooke Shields vibe comes to mind when you think of Bobbi Brown’s natural palette; sexy, smokey, with a hint of British edge and luxury screams Charlotte Tilbury; and contoured, strobed perfection is what the Patrick Tas and Ariel Tejadas of the Instagram world are serving up.

When I opened up the package she sent me with five lipsticks from her newly launched INDIA collection, I gasped. The gold embossed thick paper boxes greeted me first and set the mood for luxury.
