We don’t know about you but we can’t keep calm as Gangubai Kathiawadi is on the cusp of its release. We’re sure it's going to be another feather in the hat for Alia Bhatt as she looks stunning in all the glimpses we’ve caught so far. But as the release is nearing, we’re also a tad upset because we won’t get to see Alia Bhatt donning white outfits like an ethereal queen-a theme she’s maintained all through the promotions of this movie. So we wanted to do a breakdown of her latest Instagram post wherein she’s seen looking perfectly sun-kissed with a minimal makeup look that you can recreate in no time!
Alia Bhatt is not only a queen in terms of acting but also skincare. So, before starting with the makeup, spend a good 15 minutes doing your skin prep by cleansing and moisturising it well. Make sure your skin is looking like a glazed doughnut by the end of it as it will not only create a flawless canvas for makeup but also help you achieve a dewy look.
Step #1: Use the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Primer to create a perfect canvas for the makeup as it is long-lasting and blurs out blemishes and imperfections.
Step #2: For the base, pick the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation for a radiant and glowing finish like Alia’s. Next, blend the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer over blemishes and under-eye areas.
Step #3: Go over your cheekbones with a bronzer. Take it to the sides of your forehead and jaw to fake a sun-kissed yet sculpted look.
Step #4: Take the Lakmé Absolute Spotlight Brow Perfecter in coffee and gently make dots with it on your nose and cheeks. Start sparingly with well-distanced dots and make more dots as you go, making the dots look imperfectly perfect.
Step #5 Gently pat your fingers across the dots (don’t swing your fingers around, only pat) to give it a more natural look.
Step #6: Highlight generously on your cheekbones, the tip of your nose, forehead, browbones and chin with the Lakmé Absolute Liquid Highlighter to make it look more sunkissed and dewy.
Step #5: Finish off with a dewy setting spray.
Eyes & Lips
Step #1: Prep your eyes with a primer and then use the Lakmé Absolute Infinity Eyeshadow Palette - Coral Sunset for eyeshadow. Use the nude-orange eyeshadow and blend it on your eyelids and below your waterline.
Step #3: Curl your lashes with an eyelash curler. Then, apply Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara and curl it upwards that will make your eyes look big and open.
Step #4: Brush up your eyebrows and create light strokes with the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eyebrow Artist to make them look naturally thick.
Step #5: For lips, use the Lakmé Absolute Precision Lip Paint- Alluring Nude to finish off the gorgeous makeup look dipped in subtlety!
