She is the country’s No.1 heroine, mother of paparazzi’s favourite child and she’s a Kapoor-turned-Khan. Yes, we’re talking about Kareena Kapoor Khan! This begum has been ruling our hearts for almost two decades now, and we still cannot get enough of her. From Bebo’s effortless style and sassy attitude to her movie choices, there’s nothing we don’t envy about this gorgeous star. And not to forget, her signature makeup look that always leaves us speechless!
As the diva turns a year older today, we’re taking the day to celebrate her iconic kohl-eyed, nude pout look that makes a drop-dead statement each time she wears it. If you’ve ever taken makeup inspiration from Kareena, then here’s a treat for you!
We’ve decoded Kareena’s signature makeup look in five easy steps. And all you need is five products to ace it!
- Step 1: Base it like Bebo
- Step 2: Crazy about contouring
- Step 3: Not without my kajal
- Step 4: Mascara and more mascara
- Step 5: Nude lip for the win
Step 1: Base it like Bebo
Start by prepping your face with a primer so that your makeup glides on smoothly and lasts longer. If you’ve noticed Kareena’s face makeup closely, you’ll notice that of late, the actress has been ditching her matte look for one that everyone’s going gaga about… dewy! So, get your hands on a liquid foundation that leaves your skin looking radiant. If not, then simply mix any foundation with a few drops of facial oil and blend well. It will give you a similar finish.

Step 2: Crazy about contouring
Ever envied Bebo’s high cheekbones and chiseled jawline? Well, it’s all because of… yes, you guessed it right. Contouring! While the actress never misses out on contouring, she keeps it minimal when it comes to blush. If you want to walk the same path, then we suggest you use a contour stick that can double up as a blush too.

Step 3: Not without my kajal
In a world full of smokey eyes and graphic eyeliner, Kareena prefers to be old school. If you’ve noticed, the diva has made the smudged kohl-eyed look her signature makeup move. Be it promotional events, chat shows or red carpets, you will never find Bebo without her trusty kajal. To achieve a smudged look like hers, take your kajal pencil and go over with it on your waterline and upper lash line. Then, take a brush and smudge it to give it an ‘oomph’ effect.

Step 4: Mascara and more mascara
While falsies are creating a storm in the beauty circuit, Bebo once again stands out! If you’re someone who doesn’t want to switch their mascara for falsies, and still wants to achieve voluminous lashes like Bebo, then generous coats of mascara is what you need! Apply at least two or three coats of mascara to finish off your subtle yet striking eye makeup look.

Step 5: Nude lip for the win
No one’s a bigger fan of nude lips than Kareena Kapoor Khan. Unlike her sister Karisma Kapoor who’s often sporting a bright pink or red lip, Bebo is happy with her oh-so-subtle nudes. While her eye makeup is heavy on kohl, she chooses to wear just a gloss or a lip tint that is either transparent or nude.
