Want a dewy, glowing complexion like Alia Bhatt’s? Well, you’re in luck. Celebrity makeup artist Mehak Oberoi has spilt tea on how she paints Alia’s face to look so radiant and fresh. Besides the Gangubai actress, Mehak has also worked with major Bollywood celebrities like Malaika Arora, Shanaya Kapoor, Alaya F, and Manushi Chhillar. Without any further ado, let’s learn how to get the glossiest, luminous skin in five simple steps!
- Start with a nourishing moisturiser
- Only spot conceal
- Use cream or liquid blushers
- Set only under the eyes
- Lock it all with setting spray
Start with a nourishing moisturiser
The key is to make the skin as moisturised and glowy as possible. Alia Bhatt’s makeup artist likes to use a deeply nourishing cream, enriched with vitamins for pre-makeup skincare. The Lakmé Lumi Skin Cream is a highlighter cum moisturiser that gives a lit 3D glow.
Only spot conceal
To achieve the most skin-like, dewy finish, Mehak Oberoi prefers using concealer only in trouble spots. That way, the base looks natural and doesn’t have heaps of makeup that can translate as cakey under HD cameras. She only applies concealer on dark circles and blemishes.
Our favourite is the Lakmé 9to5 Primer + Matte Liquid Concealer. Its long-lasting formula ensures your skin looks flawless all day.
Use cream or liquid blushers
Mehak likes using cream or liquid blush over powder blushes as they easily melt into the skin and don’t look like makeup. A pink liquid blush with golden reflexes is her go-to. This also doubles as a rose gold highlighter.
If you’re new to cream blushes, check out the Lakmé 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color. The extensive shade range offers 20 vivid shades that range from pinks to neurals. Whatever you prefer, they’ve got it!
Set only under the eyes
Once all the creams are done, the celebrity makeup artist likes to set only the necessary spots with powder. She gently presses some translucent powder or compact powder under the eyes to prevent concealer creasing. Then, she applies a little amount wherever she applied concealer.
The Lakmé 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Powder Foundation Compact is a brilliant powder if you want an airbrushed base. A light dusting of this product will lock your makeup in place but won’t look too cakey.
Lock it all with setting spray
After all the hard work, it’s time to seal the deal with setting spray. This step is supposed to melt all the powder into the skin and give it a more natural appearance. Setting sprays also prolong the wear time of makeup, which is crucial during long hours of shoots.
