Beauty Makeup

And That’s How It’s Done!

A great beauty look is not about going glam on every part of your face. Instead, it’s about accentuating your key feature and playing it up to ensure it steals the spotlight. Your favourite celebs have of course, mastered this, so take a leaf out of their beauty books and learn exactly how it’s done.

Bold brows

Pencil thin, plucked brows are a thing of the past! Statement brows can elevate any look, and if you don’t believe us, take a look at Deepika Padukone for reference. While microblading is an easy and long-lasting solution for anyone to rock a set like this, those with naturally bushy brows can perfect their shape with a brow pencil or powder and keep them in place with a great brow mascara.

Sultry eyes

The undisputed style queen, Kareena Kapoor Khan surely knows how to play up her strengths. If you are bestowed with gorgeous big eyes, create a smokey, kohled look like hers to make sure your eyes do all the talking. Eyes also require a lot of TLC to keep them looking bright and fresh, so include eye masks and eye gels as a definite part of your skincare routine.

Chiselled cheekbones

While getting perfectly chiselled and rosy cheeks like Malaika Arora takes tons of effort, you can cheat a little and fake that perfection. Needless to say, clever contouring helps. For a fresh, youthful flush, start applying blush right from the apples of your cheeks up to your ear. Finish off with a swipe of bronzer on your cheekbones to make them pop!

Power pout

If you’ve got luscious lips like Priyanka Chopra, then make sure you keep them in good shape with care products such as lip masks and scrubs. Give them a slight boost with a plumping gel and dab an illuminator atop your favourite lipstick to accentuate your lips and your final look even more.

Skin is in

There’s no make-up as good as great skin, and Alia Bhatt is proof of that. Your skin, which is your canvas, needs to be healthy and supple for any make-up look to come alive. If you’re blessed with great skin, you can mix your concealer with a few drops of a hydrating face oil and apply it all over to even out the skin tone. Use a highlighter on the high points of your face like the cheekbones and bridge of your nose to complete the ‘lit from within’ look.

Healthy and radiant

As you age, your skin may lose some of its tautness and sheen, certain imperfections like fine lines and open pores may show up, but if you’re careful like Sushmita Sen, then being ageless shouldn’t be a problem. Invest in great anti-ageing and firming products and pay special attention to the eyes, as signs of ageing first and most prominently show up here.
