Karisma Kapoor’s beauty is timeless. I mean, she is 45, but could easily give a 25-year-old some serious competition in the beauty department. Always the one to experiment with her hair and makeup, Karisma sure serves some cool beauty inspiration every now and then.
Recently, the actress attended an event in the city and boy did she look gorgeous! Karisma wore a chic checkered blue dress, but it was her eye makeup that stole the spotlight. Wanna learn how to re-create Karisma’s resplendent eye makeup look? Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you ace it.
Step 01: For your makeup to look absolutely perfect, you need to start by thoroughly moisturising your face. We recommend you use the Pond’s Super Light Gel Oil Free Moisturiser as it delivers intense moisture without the sticky and greasy feeling. Win-win!
Step 02: Next, it’s time for a primer. Take a pea-sized amount of Lakme Absolute Under Cover Gel Face Primer and apply it in dots all over your face, but concentrating more on the areas that tend to get oily. Gently pat it in for smooth and even skin texture
Step 03: Next, take the Lakme Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse 16hr foundation and apply it all over your face and neck. Blend it all in using a makeup sponge for a natural, airbrushed look. Use the Lakme Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer in areas that require extra coverage and blend that in as well for a seamless base
Step 04: It’s time to add some colour and dimension to your face. Using the Lakme Absolute Highlighter - Moon-Lit, apply the darker shade on your cheekbones to add some definition to your face.
Step 01: For your eye makeup to pop, it is important to prime your lids first. This will also prevent the eyeshadow from creasing and will make it last all day long
Step 02: Sweep on the lightest matte shade from the Lakme Absolute Infinity Eye Shadow Palette - Soft Nudes. This will form the base of your eye makeup
Step 03: Start by drawing a thin line from the inner corner of your eye using the Lakme Eyeconic Kajal - Royal Blue and stop when you reach the middle of your eye
Step 04: Next, take the Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal - Royal Purple and complete the rest of the line. Extend it a little to draw a slightly dramatic wing. Using the smudger provided with the kajal, smudge out the purple for a slightly smokey and sultry effect. Use the same purple kajal on your waterline as well. Finish it by applying generous coats of your favourite mascara
Step 05: It’s time to do your brows. Start by brushing them upwards and outwards and then fill them in with a light hand using the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil - Dark Brown.
Step 01: After you’ve thoroughly scrubbed and moisturised your lips, dab it with a tissue to get rid of the excess lip balm. Line your lips using a soft pink nude lip liner
Step 02: Next, apply two coats of the Lakme Absolute 3D Lipstick - Elegant Pink on your lips and you’re good to go!
