The power issue of Femina boasted the inimitable Anushka Sharma on its cover. She looked every bit the powerful woman she is. With strong fierce, kohl-lined eyes, gelled back hair and minimal makeup, her look was attention grabbing.

We loved the look so much that we decoded it for you, so you can get it too!

For the face

Start by creating an even base with foundation and concealer. Use the Kareena Kapoor Khan Lakmé Absolute Face Contour, one in a shade that matches your complexion for the whole face, and another in a shade that is darker than your skin tone to create a contour on your cheeks.

For the eyes

Use a dark black pencil liner like the Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal , to draw thick lines close to your upper and lower lash line. Finish with 2-3 coats of Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara.

For the brows

Use the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil - Dark Brown to fill in and define the brows. Make sure you enhance the arch of the brow.

For the lips

Keep the lips in the nude-beige zone and apply a matte lipstick like Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color in Mild Mauve. You can dab a little of the same liquid lipstick on the apple of your cheeks and blend. This acts as a blush which matches the lips perfectly, and does not over power the strong eyes.


Highlight at all the right points

Highlight at all the right points

You can use a highlighter like Lakmé Absolute Moon-Lit Highlighter on the top of your cheekbones, along the length of your nose and on you Cupid’s bow to make it look like you are sitting in front of candle-light!

For the hair

Prep your hair with Dove Oxygen Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner and air dry it. When it is almost dry, work a light hair gel through your hair and slick it back for this look.
