Achieve the IIFA makeup looks in simple easy steps today!
Our B-town celebrities inspire us to be who we are, and to dress the way we want. And they also bring about new trends with hairdos and makeup too. The IIFA awards being one of the biggest most watched award ceremonies on Indian television, thus becomes a platform of fashion, style and beauty, we can take cues from. Let’s take a look at five sizzling makeup ideas worn and flaunted by our B-Town ladies.
1. Sonakshi Sinha’s red hot lips:
While our Dabaang girl sashayed in an Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla creation, we couldn’t but help notice her red hot lips. They weren’t too glossy or mattish, but a fine line in between somewhere that brought about an oomph factor. To get Sonakshi’s lip look, we would need a ruby red lipstick. We start by applying a little lip balm to the lip skin, after which we shall use a shade darker of a lip liner and line the outer section of the lips. We then use a little matte translucent powder to coat the middle of the lips, and over this we shall apply the red lipstick and fill the lips. With a lip brush, we shall now dab a little more powder and place a final coat of red on the lips again.
2. Deepika Padukone’s sultry eyes:
She walked home with the Best Actress award, and as she sashayed in a Sabyasachi number, Deepika’s eyes did a lot of talking. To get those sultry eyes, you would need thick kajal that helps create an intense look. Start by applying basic moisturizer to the eyes, after which a nude shade of lightest brown matte shadow should be used to wash the eyelids. The next step would be to use a dark kajal pencil to tighline the tear lines of the eyes, and to draw two strokes on the upper eyelids and one stroke on the lower lash line. For eye shadow, dab the lids with a mix of gray and gold and smear them over the lids, blending it into the kajal lines on the upper lids only. With the help of an angular brush, smudge the kajal along the upper and lower lids, and on the lower tear line only. End with two strokes of volumnizing mascara if you do not want to use false lashes.

3. Athiya Shetty’s natural look:
In a very gorgeous Rami Kadi ensemble and dolled up by Ami Patel, B-town diva Athiya Shetty made waves in fashion at the esteemed IIFA awards. She knew very well how to balance the look, by keeping her makeup natural and simple. To get her look, one would need to first cleanse, tone and moisturize the skin, and then use two to three drops of matte foundation. Apply the foundation all over the face and the neck, and dab with a wet sponge to blend the pigment in. For the eyes, a neutral toned shadow would be best to use, and for the lips we would think of lightest pink or peach. Foundation tone shouldn’t be sheer or shimmery, or else the softness wouldn’t come through.

4. Priyanka Chopra’s high cheekbones:
Dressed in a sizzling Schiaparelli pale pink gown and with Cartier jewels for company, our desi B-Town girl Priyanka made a rocking minimalist fashion statement at the IFFA awards this time. Her high cheek bones were defined with the right amount of blush and bronzer used. To get this look, you would first need to have foundation closest to your skin tone applied. The next step would be to use a mix of two strokes of bronzer in matte tones. Apply the bronzer with a buff brush from the zygomatic bone of the face to the temple zones. Two strokes is more than enough, following which with the help of a sponge, the bronzer should be dabbed upwards.

5. Nargis Fakhri’s sharp nose:
Ever wondered how Nargis always manages to look so super chic and natural with her makeup? The answer lies in the fact she stresses more on her T-zone and keeps the makeup very natural. At the IIFA awards, dressed in Namrata Joshipura, Nargis wore her lips red but made her T-Zone stand out. To help achieve the same, once you are done with the foundation application, you would need to pick up a dark matte shadow and line the bridge of your nose and the arch of your brows with the help of a angular brush. Use a round brush now to blend the shadow into the skin and away from the inner corners of the T-Zone. Once that is done, dip your foundation brush into foundation which is one shade lighter to what you have applied on the rest of the face. Apply a thin line of the same on the inner corners of the T-Zone and blend well.
Now that you have the secrets told, what’s stopping you from helping yourself into becoming a diva?
