    I absolutely agree that she can have her arms look much fairer by makeup, or even partake in using fairness creams, etc. I just feel as though in different pics she looked darker and in some pics she looked fairer. You can blame it on the lighting or the camera flashes, or even the make up. I mean they def did put body makeup on her arms; so if your makeup artist chooses a color that is a little bit off, but looks fine in person that may reflect much fairer for the camera lenses. This happens to me all the time! But I really do believe she really does look true to herself. (I'm the one who posted the first comment btw :) )

    Aishwarya is fair but not this fair as she was made out to be in this particular Cannes appearance. Compare it with her next appearance and the next and there is a stark difference in her skin colour.

    I don't understand how Aishwarya did not embrace her real skin color. If you see her arms she is in fact that fair. Many times they have tried to make her look bronze and that's not her real color. I am also assuming because she hasn't done many appearances or movies, etc. she has stayed indoors a lot making her maybe fairer than what we are used to seeing. But even in her pregnancy pics she was this fair.
    ---------------------
    Actually arms can be made much fairer too. In my uncle's wedding, my aunt's makeup was professional done and her arms were made much fairer too. I mean professional makeup artists aren't dumb to leave your arms/fingers without foundations, lol. They know how to use and where to use makeup. I actually think in from Taal to Jodha Akbar her skin was light brownish (which I loved a lot more). She is definitely fairer than the average Indian though. Sonam Kapoor as well in Cannes in the Black Gown looked much fairer than her real skin tone (including her arms). Deepika in Chandni Chowk to China was made looking much fairer (including her arms). I guess it is not at all their fault, sometimes their makeup artists like to give them a westernized makeup. If someone who is naturally very fair puts on bronzer/fake tan, you can always definitely tell :)

    That's a mean thing to say. However, she is of Pakistani origin, not Indian. Her name is Rida. This is common knowledge.

    I'm tired just from seeing the videos - looks like a lot of time, money, and effort. However, she did a wonderful job. The end result looks flawless.

    many people do that.... the sole reason is because most of the eye shadows they use are in powder form and some of its dust fall on skin... so putting the foundation after eye shadows means a better finish :)

    Interesting video. Thanks for posting. I noticed that in one of the videos there were 6 different things used on the eye, 6 on the face, 3 for the lashes and 3 for the lips. That is 18 different makeup products. Phew! I got exhausted just thinking of all the work each of the personalities go through before each public appearance. I guess none of us really want to see them without makeup anyway :-) Great videos. Thanks again for posting.

    Nicely done and you look absolutely fantastic ! I've never seen someone who does her eyes before her fondation and concealer though, I was like "whaaaaat is she doing ? how is this going to play out ?" But, hey, I was wrong, you pulled it off really well :)
