When it comes to Kareena Kapoor Khan and her makeup game – we at BB are in complete awe! Every time the begum makes an appearance she gives us a reason to dig into her beauty look and more often than not, she manages to spark a new makeup trend or two!    

Just last season we saw Kareena launch the Lakmé Absolute Reinvent Nudes collection at the Lakmé Fashion Week and ever since, flushed out nude monotone makeup has been the biggest beauty trend on the beauty block.

Taking the nude monotone makeup trend a few notches higher – Queen Kapoor recently made an appearance wearing no-makeup-makeup with a hint of colour. She teamed her nude makeup with a bright mustard ensemble from Tome NYC and looked like a ray of sunshine against the grey weather. 

For those of you looking to replicate Kareena’s look, here is a quick decode of the look...

Strobed and contoured cheeks
 

Strobed and contoured cheeks

Kareena's cheekbones are arguably the most chiseled and sculpted cheekbones we’ve ever seen and for this particular look, she decided to accentuate them with a slight contour, a subtle highlight and a minimal dusting of bronzer. The entire look was held together with a matte illuminating base.

To get this look we suggest you opt for the Lakmé Absolute Skin Natural Hydrating Mousse which will lend your skin the perfect coverage along with a hydrating formula that will give you a glow like Kareena’s. Once you’ve aced the base, move on to accentuating your cheekbones. We say you start with the
Lakmé Absolute Moon-Lit Highlighter and practice the art of strobing to ace those high-on-shine cheeks. Then move on to the Lakmé Absolute Sun Kissed Bronzer and dust it lightly for a sun-kissed looked that will also add a dimension to your cheeks just like Bebo’s.
 

Soft Smoky Eyes

Kareena finished this nude makeup look by adding some colour to it with these soft smoky eyes. Even though the eyeshadow has been smoked out, it’s not the usual OTT black smoky eye. If you zoom closer onto her eyes, you’ll see she is wearing her signature black kohl eyes on the lash line but the eyeshadow is brown. The brown eyeshadow has been smudged along the lash line for a soft smoky effect with a hint of mascara.

To get this look we suggest you opt for the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in Nude beach that has a whole lot of nude and earthy tones to compliment this nude makeup perfectly. To play up your eyes and get Kareena’s signature kohl eyes opt for the Lakmé Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal in Black, Ash Brown or Bronze Rust and then smudge and blend it with the eyeshadow to ace the soft smoky look.    
 

Lush Lips

In tow with the nude monotone makeup, Kareena has maintained the colour code for her lips as well. She opted for the crème finish nude lips for those lush lips.

To dress your lips just like Kareena we suggest you pick a nude lip shade that works for you. The Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color in Caramel Custard, Soft Beige or Juicy Plum are all good options.

Messy bun, so fun


Kareena sporting a messy bun with a bouffant seems like a strategic beauty move to us. The hairdo has been strictly kept this basic to suit the day look she wore and to complement her nude makeup. Plus, a messy bun like that is perfect for when you are working with that gorgeous jawline and those defined cheekbones. The bun totally allows the face to be the hero of the look!
