We love stealing! Yes, we admit but wait on; sharing is caring.

And these are the secrets they use to look super gorgeous always. So let’s take a look and since the festival season has come through, let us make good use of them to flaunt our beautiful personalities too. Read on!
1. Kareena Kapoor’s healthy blush cheeks:
Now here’s what you need to do if you want to have a natural blush on the cheeks you have, and if your skin tone is pale to very fair, just like the Bollywood diva Kareena; you need to exfoliate your skin once a week with a DIY face pack. A tablespoon of honey mixed with a tablespoon of gram flour should be made into a paste and applied onto the skin. This should be left for ten minutes and then washed away using circular motions to exfoliate the skin. In doing so, the circulation of blood happens which brings about a healthy glow to the skin and a rosy touch too.
2. Mineral mud masks make Katrina gorgeous:
If you want to re-create the celeb look like that of Katrina, your skin needs to be hydrated well at all times. For the same, you need a cup of multani mitti (fullers earth) mixed with rosewater to form a paste, and applied twice a week. This helps shrink pores, cleanse the pores and removes dirt, grime and dead cells from the skin. The skin also gets more hydration as well, which boosts circulation and collagen production.
3. Pouty lips like Nargis Fakhri:
Nargis Fakhri rules many hearts and we all know how talented she is, but it is her lips that charm us all the most- the pout especially. To re-create the celeb look here, we would ask you to sprinkle less than a pinch of cinnamon on your lipstick before applying it on the lips. Cinnamon has the power to irate the lip cells sans burning them, which creates a pouty effect. You could also try using white shimmer powder in the mid-section of the lips and blend it with your lipstick for a pouty effect to come through.
4. Perfect contouring like Amrita Rao:
To re-create the right contouring effect such as that seen on Amrita Rao, you would need to first sand the area under the eyes with highlighter and all the way to the temples; use a wet sponge after that to blend the pigment into the skin. The next step would be to draw a line with a brown shadow from the hollow of the cheeks to the temple zone, and with a dry sponge to blend the same in.
5. A sharp nose like Rani Mukherjee:
We all know that Rani Mukherjee doesn’t have a sharp nose for real, which is why her makeup artist highlights the top of the nose with a lighter foundation whilst bestowing a darker brown shade on the sides of the nose to make the ridge of the nose sharp, long and prominent.
6. Alia Bhatt’s soft feminine look:
Notice how the B-Town diva Alia doesn’t look OTT with her makeup? It is because she creates a soft look always. This can be done when you first apply foundation one shade lighter to your skin tone, and then dab foundation a shade darker to your skin tone; blending well with a damp sponge all over for equal distribution.
