Makeup that teams well with Indo-western attires, ft. Shilpa Shetty

written by Fatema Habib on Jun 29, 2019

When it comes to slaying in indo-western ensembles, no one beats Shilpa Shetty Kundra. While the diva’s casual style is as simple as denim-and-tshirt/shirt, her public and onscreen appearances are absolutely drool-worthy. Shilpa is often seen sporting modern versions of the traditional Indian saree and giving us all the inspiration to amp up our own fusion wear game. To top it, her slender figure does everything to add more oomph to her fusion looks.

If you’re someone who loves indo-western attires and are wondering what makeup goes best with such chic, modern ensembles, then this is just what you need to read! Taking cues from the oh-so-stunning Shilpa Shetty Kundra, we’ve curated her top fusion looks for you…

Frill chill

We didn’t know frills on saree could look so good until we saw Shilpa Shetty Kundra wear it with panache! Apart from that soft smokey look and defined brows, the highlight of her look is very evidently that deep plum lip colour. You can buy a similar shade here—Lakmé 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color - Rosy Plum.

Lesson: Always team skin coloured outfits with a darker, deeper lip tone to instantly up your glamour quotient

Pink wins

Shilpa Shetty Kundra pulls off this hot pink traditional gown with élan. While she wears her hair down in soft curls, her on-fleek makeup is what we are drooling over! Those highlighted cheekbones, fluttery lashes and a soft matte lipstick ties her look together. Try the Lakmé Face Sheer Highlighter, Sun Kissed to highlight your cheeks with a beautiful glow.

Lesson: Highlighting your cheekbones can make all the difference in upping your makeup game

Mad over monochrome

While Shilpa is not too big on hair experiments, you can totally turn to her for makeup inspo. The actress who doesn’t shy away from experimenting with new makeup trends, is seen slaying the monochrome makeup look here. The diva stuns in a neon green dhoti saree and complements her outfit with earthy makeup tones—tawny brown lipstick, oodles of highlighter and soft brown lids. To create soft smokey eyes, you can use the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette - French Rose.

Lesson: Make sure to always team your bright neon indo-western ensembles with soft, earthy tones to avoid looking like a clown

Less is more

With Shilpa Shetty Kundra, less is more especially when it comes to makeup. She seldom experiments with bold shadows, however, the one thing she never misses out on is her statement barely-there eyeliner. If your fusion attire is as loud as Shilpa’s and if you’re someone who likes keeping it minimal, then it’s best to tone down your makeup game. A swipe of eyeliner can do wonders though; try the Lakmé Absolute Gloss Artist Eye Liner - Black.

Lesson: For the makeup minimalists, you can take cues from Shilpa Shetty Kundra and go for just a hint of eyeliner

Oomph orange

Shilpa Shetty Kundra reinstates our love for a bright orange in this tube saree gown. While orange can tend to look a tad loud, it’s important you pick a shade that complements your skin tone—be it for clothes or makeup. While Shilpa’s retro hairstyle is note-worthy here, what caught our attention is her matchy-matchy lip colour. We love! You can get your hands on a similar bright lip tone here—Lakmé 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lip Color - MR12 Crimson Catch.

Lesson: Play up any one element—eyes or lips—and match your lip colour or eye shadow with your ensemble to add more oomph to your look
