Alia Bhatt has the confidence to pull off any look, and we recently spotted her in a gorgeous maroon velvet sharara that took our breath away. Styled to perfection, she looked like a modern day princess in a maroon mashru silk kurta with a velvet sharara. The twist was the strappy top which looked contemporary in an otherwise ethnic ensemble.

Her makeup was a lesson in the correct use of highlighter. She showed how, by accentuating the right places with a highlighter, you can step your look right the hell up!

Interested? Here are the 3 highlighter lessons we learn from Alia Bhatt...

Alia Bhatt highlighter

Use a highlighter like the Lakmé Absolute Moon-Lit Highlighter just at the top of your cheekbones for a youthful glow. Extend it slightly around the outer corner of your eye and into the area just below your brow bone. Doing this pulls ‘up’ your facial features for an instant facelift.

Dust a little highlighter along the length of your nose to give it a thinning and sharpening effect. This is the highest point where light reflects off your face and is the most ideal place to apply highlighter.

Brush a little highlighter along the tops of your collar bone to define them even more. This trick is especially helpful when you are wearing off-shoulder or strappy tops.
