Move over matte! Shiny cheeks are all the rage and these celebrities are proof

There was a time when nothing looked better than a smooth matte finish. From face makeup to eye makeup and lipstick, it was all about wearing your favourite shades, but in matte texture. Whether it was the red carpet or runway, all you could sport everywhere was matte makeup.  

Come 2020, and there seems to be a huge wave of trends taking over matte. Thanks to celebrities like Deepika Padukone, Janhvi Kapoor and Ananya Panday, matte has taken a backseat and is being replaced with the shiny cheek look. This hottest new makeup trend is giving even makeup minimalists major goals.

Want to hop on to the bandwagon? Take a cue from these celebrities who have been rocking shiny cheeks.


#01: Ananya Panday

#05: Kriti Sanon

The newest star kid on-the-block has been giving us major beauty goals ever since she set foot in the industry. Apart from her chic, millennial-esque hairstyles, Ananya’s makeup is also always on fleek.

While she plays with colours very subtly, one common element in most of her looks is… yes, you guessed it right. Overly shiny cheeks! Whether she is loading up on highlighter or a dewy foundation, Ananya’s face makeup shines brighter than the stars.


#02: Janhvi Kapoor

#05: Kriti Sanon

Another young star kid of B-town, Janhvi Kapoor serves just the right kind of inspiration for makeup lovers. If you’ve been keeping a close watch on Janhvi’s makeup game, you’ll know that the actress is team minimal when it comes to makeup. However, she never forgets to load up on some dewy glow.

Janhvi’s face makeup is high on dewy skin, blush and loads of mascara. Minimal glam goals, eh!


#03: Kangana Ranaut

#05: Kriti Sanon

Of late, actress Kangana Ranaut too has been sporting the lit-from-within look, and we are totally crushing on it. Unlike other actresses who have been complementing shiny cheeks with an overall neutral look, Kangana is going all out with a deep bold lipstick and edgy eyes. Trust the diva to pull off risky looks with panache.


#04: Deepika Padukone

#05: Kriti Sanon

If there’s one actress who slays in the makeup department, it has to be Deepika Padukone. Kudos to her makeup artist for creating breathtaking looks for the diva each time. Whether it is glossy lids or graphic eyeliner, Deepika pulls it all off with élan. Deepika’s makeup is high on highlighter, bushy brows and bronzed cheeks.


#05: Kriti Sanon

#05: Kriti Sanon

If we had to describe Kriti Sanon’s beauty game in one word, we’d say experimental. The actress does not shy away from sporting coloured eyeshadow, bold smokey eyes or bright lip colours. Her makeup game is definitely a treat for makeup maximalists.

Staying on top of trends, Kriti too jumped onto the shiny cheeks bandwagon. While she keeps alternating between a heavy-duty eye look and vibrant lips, one thing that remains constant is… yes, shiny cheeks.
