One of the latest style icons to have emerged from Bollywood is Bhumi Pednekar. Not only does she serve serious fitness goals but her dressing is fresh and funky. She was seen on the cover of the latest issue of Femina and we were quite taken with her velvet trouser ensemble. We love this choice in fashion because velvet is going to be huge this year and can be quite tricky to pull off.
So, what makeup do you wear when you are wearing velvet? Since velvet is quite a strong element and attention-grabby, take cues from Bhumi and keep your hair and makeup on the simpler side. We love this look with the metallic pink lip and shadowy eyes. Here is how you can get the look...
For the face
Start with the C-T-M routine and make sure your skin is prepped and ready for makeup to be applied on. Create an even and flawless base with Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse and conceal the problem areas with Lakmé ALakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer. Use the Kareena Kapoor Khan Lakmé Absolute Face Contour stick in darker than your complexion to contour your cheeks. Set it with Lakmé 9to5 Naturale Finishing Powder using a large fluffy brush.
For the eyes
Bhumi has not overdone her eyes. There is a slight shadowy hint around her eyes. Use an eye pencil like Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal and line only the outer 2/3rds of your upper and lower lash line. Set this pencil with a black eyeshadow. This will prevent the creamy formula of the kajal from spreading. Use a white or a nude eye pencil on the lower waterline to make your eyes appear larger. Finish the look with 2-3 coats of Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara.
Pro tip: To make your eyes appear larger, line only the outer 2/3rds of your eyes and use a white pencil on the lower waterline.
For the brows
Use the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown and fill in and define your brows.
Pro tip: your eyebrow pencil has to be a shade darker than your natural hair colour.
For the lips
For prep your lips beforehand by exfoliating and priming them. Fill in the lips with a lip liner that matches the lipstick you are going to apply. Finally apply a shimmery, pink lipstick like Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color in Mild Mauve all over your lips for a pretty look.
