Lakmé Fashion Week 2021 came to a close on Sunday night, with a stellar showcase from Gaurav Gupta whose pieces didn't just make a trendsetting statement; they made a statement for sustainability too. Apart from the sustainably created pieces, our favourite part about the show was none other than the showstopper, Kareena Kapoor Khan, who stole the limelight on the ramp at the Lakmé Absolute Grand Finale. With bold, berry lips, and chiselled cheekbones that made the actor look stunning, we love her look and think it's just the right one for the upcoming festive season. And if you want Kareena Kapoor Khan's show-stopping look at the Lakmé Absolute Grand Finale, we're here to let you in on how to make it your own. Read on for our beauty decode of the gorgeous look.


For your face...

For your face...


Step 01: Kareena Kapoor Khan's makeup look starts with a matte base, and that's exactly what we're going to recreate. First up, to build a smooth base that also provides some skin nourishment, use the Lakmé Absolute Under Cover Gel Face Primer to take care of all those fine lines and pores.

Step 02: Next, it's time for foundation. Opt for the Lakmé Absolute Skin Natural Mousse, a feather-light mousse foundation that won't weigh heavy on your skin, but will give you a perfect matte finish with full coverage.

Step 03: To conceal those dark circles, opt for the mattifying mousse concealer, the Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Mousse Concealer. Make sure that the concealer you pick is a shade lighter than your skin tone, to get a highlighter-like effect like Kareena Kapoor Khan.

Step 04: With the Lakmé Absolute Highlighter - Moon-Lit, opt for the darker shade and start defining your natural contours. Go in on your cheekbones, your jawline, your temples, and your nose, and make sure that the definition stands out — but don't forget to blend properly!

Step 05: Use the lighter shade from the same highlighter to bring a subtle glow to the high points of your face — your cheekbones, the tip of your nose, your brow bone, and your cupid's bow. The trick here is to not be heavy handed!



For your eyes and lips...

For your eyes and lips...

Step 01: Take the Lakmé Absolute Spotlight Eyeshadow Palette - Berry Martini and use the matte, brown shade all over your lids, while making sure you blend super well on the crease.
Step 02: From the same palette, take the shimmery, dark-gold shade and sweep it all over the centre of your lid to add a little bit of dimension.

Step 03: Next, cop Kareena Kapoor Khan's effortless kajal with the Lakmé Eyeconic Insta Cool Kajal - Black. It has a long-lasting formula that cools the eyes, and is sure to stay on no matter what event you're at.

Step 04: Take the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara - Black to throw in a little lash drama! The volume-inducing mascara is super lightweight, and will give you fab, fluttery lashes with none of the fallout.

Step 05: Finally, take the Lakmé Absolute Precision Lip Paint - Black Cherry and define your lips with the stunning berry shade. Its intense matte shade will give you a velvety finish and superior definition, and not dry your pout. And that's it! You've aced Kareena Kapoor Khan's glam look from the Lakmé Absolute Grand Finale.
