We may not be seeing much of Bipasha on the big screen but every time we spot her at the gym or on the red carpet, she makes for a delightful sight. Case in point—this look where she attended an event to unveil a wedding-related book wearing a gorgeous Sabyasachi sari. But know what truly had us cheering away? That glow on her face replete with perfect makeup. Burgundy lips, matte skin and that bindi—her makeup look was totally worth playing copycats to. If like us, you too wish to try this look on yourself, here’s how to go about it with Lakmé...

Prep

Before you apply your foundation, it is imperative that you ready your face for the makeup products. This is an integral part of the base makeup routine. Bipasha’s skin looks supple and hydrated. For that, we suggest you first start off by applying the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Gel Crème that’s enriched with hydrating minerals—something that will lend your skin optimum hydration. It's water-based gel crème formula leaves your skin looking glowing and fresh.

Base

Once you’ve applied a primer to ensure that your makeup stays put, go with a foundation/mousse to give your skin the coverage you need. To achieve a base like Bipasha’s, try the Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse that won’t feel too heavy on your skin yet will give you the kind of coverage you need. Use a face brush to blend the foundation for a seamless finish like hers.

Eyebrows

Bipasha may not have thick brows that’s all the rage right now but her brows are perfectly groomed and filled in. You need to rely on the Lakmé Eyebrow Pencil to get eyebrows like her. Fill in the scanty areas and make sure you use a spoolie to brush it up.

Eyes

Since Bips is flaunting an Indian look, the eyes are the centre of attention for this appearance. To get an eye makeup look like hers, draw a thick cat eye using the Lakmé Absolute Shine Line Eyeliner, Black. Once that dries up, use the Lakmé Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal on the waterline and smudge it just a wee bit using the other side of the kajal. When done, rely on the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara to give you voluminous and long lashes.

Contour

While Bips has kept her base makeup clean, she’s contoured her face well—it’s not too jarring yet it’s accentuating her features perfectly. For a sculpted face like hers, try the Lakmé Absolute Moonlit Highlighter and use the bronzer side of it with a contouring brush and apply the product on the cheekbones, sides of your nose and your jawline. Make sure you blend till you get the finish you want.

Lips

Bips has the perfect shade of marsala on her lips. It’s not too glossy, not too matte. To get lips like her, make sure you use the Lakmé 9to5 Weightless Mousse Lip and Cheek Colour, Burgundy Lush. It’s lightweight, long lasting and so gorgeous—just what your lips need for a traditional night out.
