Getting to know Fashion and Beauty Influencer – Sayani Roy
Hello everyone! Its that time of the year again. Durga Puja/Navratri/Dussehra is upon us and the entire country is gearing up for the festive spirit. The ten days of a mad rush, a feeling of free-falling, of indulging in extra food, of bonding with families, of letting your hair down and becoming your best fashionable self. It’s time to welcome the Goddess, celebrate Shakti and unanimously unite together to celebrate the biggest festival season of India. And this time is again a reminder that even being of diverse cultures and traditions, we all unite under one big hood…
On the spirit of the occasion, WeekendTrivia brings for you a heart-to-heart talk with few ladies who are dynamic, beautiful, successful in their own ways and breaking norms and labels with their life-style and thoughts. They are the influencers of our times, who refuse to be labeled as such and yet are looked up by many. Gone are the days when the only style icons were the film/television celebrities and when we craved to look like them.
These ladies have broken the barriers of ideas that fashion is only for celebrities, only meant to be done on certain occasions and definitely not at work! The rules are changing and these beautiful ladies bring a myriad of a fresh and positive outlook for you all. They also teach us that we don’t have to depend on the salons and parlours only to look good. We can do our own makeup and hair like a bomb and stylize them to suit the occasion. They are people like you and me, girls next door, bringing out their best self.

She works as an IT professional, she is herself a makeup artist and she is at the same time a fashion and beauty influencer with a huge following, curating different looks and style with different brands creating her own niche.
