Billy Manik: Moisturising is the key to flawless makeup.

Billy Manik is the person behind some of Esha Gupta and Tamannaah Bhatia’s gorgeous makeup looks. This ace celebrity makeup expert strongly believes that ‘perfect makeup comes with well-moisturised and well-primed skin.’ She adds, “Always remove your makeup before sleeping, drink at least three litres of water daily and moisturise. Whether you have acne-prone skin, sensitive skin or normal skin, every skin type needs to moisturise.”

Anu Kaushik: Keep your bridal makeup as natural as possible so you don’t look like a completely different person on your wedding day.

Bridal makeup expert Anu Kaushik is a fan of minimalistic makeup looks. Even when it comes to bridal makeup, she loves a fresh face look which has a luminous base, a rosy glow on the cheeks and a nude gold wash of colour on the lids. Her makeup tip is, “Your skin does not need to hide under layers of makeup. Therefore, my one and only tip would be to use less makeup because you’ll be surprised to know that too much makeup makes you look older.”

Florian Hurel: It’s amazing what mascara and lip liner can do. Make them your best friends.

Known to create some breathtaking looks for Bollywood divas like Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and Sara Ali Khan, Florian Hurel has some cool makeup tips up his sleeve. He says, “Firstly, I always advise people to use waterproof makeup; waterproof mascara is a must. And secondly, line your lips for a defined pout and go for lip stains if you want that long-lasting lip colour”.

Lekha Gupta: Understand your face and what works for you instead of blindly following trends.

If you’ve been crushing on Kiara Advani’s fresh face makeup looks, then you have her makeup artist Lekha Gupta to thank. “I would suggest you follow the ‘less is more’ rule when it comes to makeup. Don’t overdo it. Start with less and then build if need be,” she says. She also believes that over-the-top looks will only make you look fake. So, don’t blindly follow internet trends, girls. “It is very important to know what works for your face and your skin and accordingly create a killer look for yourself,” she explains.
