These Bollywood celeb-inspired makeup ideas will give you an inkling of what you should flaunt to all of the festive parties you’ve been invited to. Whether it is glitter, berry lips, illuminated skin, graphic eyeliner, peachy tones – there is something for everyone.
1. Kajol’s smokey eyes and nude lips:
Opt for the perfect smokey eyes. This makes your eyes prominent and look larger. Smoky eyes and nude lips are always a super combination. Smudge a matte black shadow along your upper and lower lash line, and pair it with a nude gloss or a skin-tones lipstick. This is a look that won’t look too harsh. If you want to have some fan, use a tiny bit of glitter on your mascara.
2. Deepika’s signature berry lips:
Deepika Padukone channels sophisticated goth by using berry hues very often on her lips. Keep it elegant by using lots of highlighter mixed with your foundation on scrubbed skin for a dewy look. Try a pop pastel lip shade or a deep burgundy, or even violet or purple on the lips. Keep the eyes nude with just some lengthening mascara or you could line them with chocolate brown eyeliner. With a statement lipstick, keep the rest of the makeup subtle. Pair it with light copper eye shadow, a thin streak of eyeliner and mascara.
3. Subtle brown smokey eyes a la Ileana D’Cruz:
If you have brown eyes, this would look great on you. Try darker and lighter shades of matching eye shadow to create a smokey eye and pair it with a subtle metallic lip shade like peach, light pink or petal pink.
4. Radhika Apte’s fierce bold brow look:
This look would be perfect for girls who have a pair of bold eyebrows. Thick eyebrows are very in, so instead of plucking them to fake a thinner brow, just comb them to create shape, and fill gaps with eyebrow pencil or mascara. Do the brows after you wear base and foundation. Pair your perfect brows with a light eyeliner, mascara and a pink or coral lip. Wear some blush and highlighter for a healthy youthful look! This would be great for new brides or young women who don’t like to wear too much makeup.
5. Prachi Desai’s fresh peach look:
If you’re not into dark or bold makeup looks, try a simpler look with soft shades like peach, pink or coral. Match your lip shade with your dress, and wear shades of it with shimmery copper or bronze eyeshadow. Pair it with light mascara and blush, and you’re good to go!
Black eyeliner and red pout is a classic combination! Add a dose of highlighter/bronzer and you will be ready to turn on heads! The reason why it is such an evergreen look is because it can be worn by just any age group and the colors suit every skin tone. Ensure to pick a red lipstick according to your skin tone so that it doesn’t looks jarring on you. An exaggerated cat eye also looks stunning when paired with a nice ruby red lipstick.
Before you ape your favorite celebrity’s makeup look, bear these points in mind:
- After scrubbing your face clean, apply an oil-based day moisturizer. This is like a shield that prevents skin from drying out. It keeps skin supple.
- Use a high-quality sunscreen with an SFP of 50 and UV protection. If applying a foundation use a mineral one.
- A light matt foundation or some tinted powder with a slight shimmer on your skin look great in winters.
- For a radiant look use a sheer layer of creamy blush in pinks, corals or brown depending on your skin color – fair, wheat-ish or dark.
