From making her mark as one of the most talented and diverse actresses on the small screen to playing the lead in a blockbuster movie, Kritika Kamra has come a long way. But it’s not only her acting skills that impress us. We’re equally impressed with her top-notch beauty game.
Take, for example, this super trendy, purple eye and red lip makeup look the actress was seen wearing recently. We love the colour play and think this is a super versatile look that can be rocked on a number of occasions. That is why we had to go ahead and decode the look for you.
So scroll down for a step-by-step guide to ace Kritika Kamra’s colour blocking makeup look.
Step 01: To achieve a flawless matte base like Kiritka’s, start BY applying a lightweight moisturiser such as the Lakme Peach Milk Ultra Light Gel and follow it up with patting the Lakme Absolute Undercover Gel Makeup Primer all over your face.
Step 02: Now that you’re done with skin prep, it’s time to start with the base. Dot your entire face and neck with a matte-finish foundation such as the Lakme 9 To 5 Primer + Matte Perfect Cover Foundation and blend it in using a damp makeup sponge. This will make your foundation look totally skin-like and natural.
Step 03: To conceal any other visible imperfections such as dark undereye circles, acne, acne scars or pigmentation, apply a little bit of the Lakme Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer and blend it in for seamless coverage.
Step 04: Prevent the undereye area from creasing by dusting on a tiny amount of the Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale Finishing Powder. If you have oily skin, you can even dust on some on your cheeks and T-zone to control excess sebum production.
Step 01: Start with taking a nude (but keep it a shade darker than your normal skin colour) eyeshadow from Lakme Absolute Infinity Eye Shadow Palette - Soft Nudes and apply it all over your eyelids, concentrating more on the crease.
Step 02: Next, roughly pack on the shimmery purple shade from the Lakme Lakme Absolute Spotlight Eye Shadow Palette - Berry Martini close to your lash line and lightly blend it upwards.
Step 03: For your lower lash line, take the same purple shadow and apply it right under your lower lash line. Blend well for a soft and smokey eye look.
Step 04: To further define your eyes, take a brown eye pencil such as the Lakme Eyeconic Kajal – Brown and gently tight line your upper lid and the waterline. Finish off the eye makeup look by curling your eyelashes and applying two coats of the Lakme Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara - Night Drama.

Step 01: Moving onto the lips, start with prepping your lips with a generous amount of the Vaseline Lip Care Cocoa Butter.
Step 02: Apply a single swipe of the Lakme Forever Matte Liquid Lip Color - Red Revival all over your lips and then blot it out with a clean tissue to get rid of the excess. This will not only soften the lip colour but also prevent it from bleeding.
