Can you believe it? We are just 15 days away from Christmas and 21 days from New Year’s. So, what better way to kick-start this cheery, party season than by taking glitter makeup-spiration from Bollywood beauties.
Shilpa Shetty Kundra recently dropped a bomb makeup look, just in time for the party season, and we couldn’t help but take notes. With glitter eyes and glossy lips, Shilpa’s makeup screams glamour! To help you recreate her glitzy, glamorous look, we’ve got you a complete breakdown. Here you go!!
Step 01: Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise. Before you go in with layers of makeup, make sure you moisturise your skin. Alcohol and sugary treats can take a serious toll on the health of your skin, making it look dull and dehydrated. To keep your skin game going strong this party season, use the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Oil-in-Crème to seriously nourish your skin. This rich yet non-greasy crème will not just revitalise your skin, but also make it look radiant.
Step 02: Next up, primer! For that full coverage foundation and highly pigmented eyeshadow to stay on way past midnight, it’s important that you use primer. Get your hands on the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer that’ll cover skin imperfections, give your makeup a perfect finish and make it last longer.
Step 03: Since the look is all glitzy and OTT, it’s best to keep the foundation matte. For all those who don’t have a primer or are running out of one, use the Lakmé 9 To 5 Primer + Matte Perfect Cover Foundation, which has a built-in primer. It is a long-wear formula with medium to high buildable coverage, apt for a party.
Step 04: Once you’re done blending in the foundation perfectly well, reach for a concealer such as the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick SPF 20 to conceal problem areas such as blemishes, pigmentation and acne scars.
Step 05: To keep your base makeup from melting as you dance the night away, add one extra step to your makeup routine. Get your hands on the Lakmé 9 To 5 Flawless Matte Complexion Compact, which is enriched with Vitamin E and has an oil-absorption formula. Dab it all over your face. This will you give you a beautiful matte look.
Step 06: Add a rosy glow to your cheeks just like Shilpa Shetty Kundra. We suggest you use the Lakmé Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos - Pink Blush, which is smooth in texture and adds a shimmery glow to your cheeks.
Step 07: Well, no party look is complete without some highlighter. So, reach for the Lakmé Absolute Highlighter - Moon-Lit to highlight the high points of your face such as the top of your cheeks, brow bone, above the cupid’s bow, bridge of the nose and centre of your chin and forehead.
Eyes & Lips
Step 01: Start by filling in your eyebrows. First, grab a spoolie and brush your brows. Then reach for an eyebrow pencil to fill in the gaps. You can use the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil - Dark Brown for defined and evenly filled brows.
Step 02: Now there are two ways you can recreate Shilpa’s eye makeup. If you think you can pull off full-fledged glitter eyes, then take loose glitter in a light pink hue and press it all over your lids. Alternatively, if you want to keep your eye makeup a little more toned down than Shilpa’s, you can go in with the pink shadow from the Lakmé 9 To 5 Eye Quartet Eyeshadow - Silk Route palette and apply it all over your lids.
Step 03: To give your glitter eye makeup a little more definition, reach for dramatic falsies. Alternatively, you can use the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara - Black for intensely curled lashes.
Step 04: Lastly, before you go over with a lip gloss, dab some concealer all over lips, including the edges. This extra step will ensure your lip colour stands out! To finish off the look, use the Lakmé Absolute Plump And Shine Lip Gloss - Candy Shine. And, done!
