If we know a yummy mummy, it’s got to be Malaika Arora. From her workout looks to red carpet appearances, she’s at the top of her game when it comes to style. While her sartorial choices always have our nod, this time, however, we were in love with her makeup—she came looking picture perfect at the opening of Gauri Khan’s restaurant, Arth, a few days ago. There were red lips, rosy cheeks and highlighter glow—the kind of makeup look that we wanted to copy, stat! If you want to give this look a go too, here’s how to get this makeup look with Lakme...



Once you’ve moisturised your skin, make sure you use a primer that’ll not only help you stay shine free but also help your makeup last longer. For this makeup look, use a foundation that’ll add a radiant touch to your skin as seen on Malaika here. We suggest using the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Foundation that’ll give you coverage and add a glow to your face. Follow this up with a compact to set your foundation.


Malaika is blessed with perfectly arched eyebrows but worry not as there’s an essential makeup tip to achieving brows like her. Pick the Lakmé Eyebrow Pencil and use gentle strokes to fill your brows in using this brow pencil starting from the arch.


Love the fact that Malaika didn’t overdo the blush application. A hint of pink on her cheeks is surely visible but it’s not blinding. To get rosy cheeks like her, we suggest going in with the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Shimmer Brick —Pink. An effective makeup tip would be to use a big fluffy brush and pick up product while using it on the apples of your cheeks.


If you like that subtle glow on your face, you can trust a highlighter to do the job for you. Malaika’s highlighter skills are so on point—perfectly blended and it gives out the right amount of sheen. To get a glow like her, a makeup tip would be relying on the Lakmé Absolute Moonlit Highlighter. Use a fan brush to apply this product and make sure you blend well.


While Malaika’s base makeup is subtle and dewy, her eyes have a thick stroke of liner and mascara on. To get her eye makeup, we suggest using the Lakmé Absolute Gloss Artist Eye Liner in Black and then adding dollops of mascara to your lashes by way of the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara.


The first thing that catches your eye about this look is the red lip colour. After all, it adds the perfect amount of colour to her natural pout. To get a red lipstick like hers, use the Lakmé Enrich Lip Crayon in Berry Red. If you want big lips, make sure you use a liner before applying this lipstick.
