She’s funny, she’s sassy, and quite frankly, she’s one of our favourite people ‘cause she tells it like it is. Known just as much for her wit as she is for her fashion sense, Twinkle Khanna manages to steal hearts one way or the other! And she’s doing it again on this recent cover of Femina.

On the September cover of the magazine, the actor-turned-author looks ethereal in a black ruffled gown. We love the fresh vibe of her makeup and her bold red hair. If you want to play copycat, here’s a complete breakdown on Twinkle Khanna’s soft and subtle makeup look.

Base
 

Base

Twinkle has kept her base makeup extremely fresh and matte. After applying a generous amount of moisturiser, start with a tiny amount of the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer. This is will help your makeup last longer and keep it looking matte all day long. Next, apply a thin, even layer of the Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse 16hr using a makeup brush or your fingers. Finally, finish your base makeup by concealing your under-eye area and any other problem areas on your face using the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick SPF 20

Cheeks
 

Cheeks

We love the fresh flush of colour on Twinkle’s cheeks. To get a similar look, start by applying Lakmé 9 To 5 Pure Rouge Blusher - Nude Flush on the apples of your cheeks. To give your face a chiselled look, apply the darker shade from the Lakmé Absolute Highlighter - Moon-Lit palette under your cheekbones, along your jawline, on the sides of your forehead as well as the sides of your nose. Finish it by applying highlighter from the same palette on your cheekbones, on your cupid’s bow and the bridge of your nose.

Eyes and brows
 

Eyes and brows

Twinkle has kept her eyes really simple with just a hint colour shining through. To achieve a similar look, apply a wash of the golden shade from the Lakmé 9 To 5 Eye Quartet Eyeshadow - Silk Route palette. Next line your eyes with the Lakmé Absolute Shine Line Eye Liner - Shimmer Bronze on the upper lid and apply the Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal - Classic Brown on your waterline. Slightly smudge the waterline for a softer effect. Coat your lashes with oodles of mascara to finish off the eyes. Fill in your brows using the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil to make them look perfectly defined.

Lips
 

Lips

We are totally crushing on how petal-fresh and glowing Twinkle’s lipstick is making her look. Start by first lining your lips with the Lakmé 9 To 5 Lip Liner - Coral Chic. Go over it with two coats of the Lakmé Absolute Matte Revolution Lip Color - 402 Coral Kiss. And voila!

Hair
 

Hair

Her stunning red mane needs a special mention here. Twinkle has styled her hair in retro waves and we have to say it looks uber chic and stylish. Start by styling your hair in loose, big waves using a curling iron. Once your waves are ready, keep them in place using the Toni&Guy Finishing Shine Spray. This product is what will keep those annoying flyaways at bay.
