While the beauty world stirs up a new trend every other day, there is one actress who chooses to play safe, be it on red carpets, at promotional events or on chat shows. She’s knows what works for her and sticks it just that. We’re talking about birthday girl Parineeti Chopra.

If you’ve been keeping a close tab on Pari’s beauty game, you’d notice how she loves keeping it uber simple and minimal with her hair and makeup. But, nevertheless, her looks are perfect if you’re looking to keep your everyday beauty quotient high. They are easy to do, subtle yet striking. Here are five lessons we learnt from the birthday girl.

Lesson #1: Amp up your black outfit with a poppy lip colour

Parineeti Chopra shows you how to add oomph to an all-black outfit. On days when you got no time for full-face makeup, just wear some foundation, blush, mascara and tie it all together with a stroke of bright pink on your lips. Yes, this uber simple makeup routine won’t take you more than five minutes and will earn you a zillion compliments!

Lesson #2: Match your eye makeup with your attire

If you like playing up your eyes, then do it with swag! We mean, take cues from the oh-so-stylish Parineeti and go matchy-matchy with your eye makeup and attire. The actress sizzles in a crisp grey pant-suit that complements her grey eyeliner perfectly. With a bold choice of eyeliner, keep your lipstick toned down. A nude shade with orange undertones will work wonders!

Lesson #3: If you go OTT with blush, keep the rest of the makeup subtle.

If you are in any way like Parineeti Chopra when it comes to makeup, then you probably want to play up a single element at once. For example, team bold smokey eyes with a nude lipstick or a deep red lipstick with a sleek winged eyeliner. So, if you love the rosy glow that blush brings with it, then don’t hesitate to go a little extra on some days. Finish off your look with a glossy pout and you’re good to go!

Lesson #4: Work a fluffy ponytail from desk to dinner

A sleek, simple ponytail may be apt to wear at work. However, if you want to amp up that same ponytail to switch your look from desk to dinner in a jiffy, then all you need to do is spritz a texturizing spray on your ponytail, scrunch it with your finger to make it look fluffy. Then, tug at the hair on the centre of your head, so it gets a good lift. This plumped-up ponytail won’t look all that basic!

Lesson #5: How to keep it smokey yet understated

Do you feel like you want a smokey eye, but you don’t want a smokey eye? We get it! The good news is that Parineeti Chopra has a solution for that. When you don’t want to go all out with a smokey look, just create a thick winged eyeliner and smudge it upwards with a brush. This little trick will give you an understated smokey eye look; just what you were looking for!
