From her acting skills to her quirky personality, Alia Bhatt is not only a household name but undoubtedly the most precious gem in Bollywood, RN! And, if you’re an Instagram junkie like we are, you must have seen her stunning bridesmaid looks that were all over the gram. If you have an upcoming wedding to attend and are on the lookout for some makeup inspiration, you’re in luck. Today we have got you a cheat sheet to achieve Alia Bhatt’s wedding guest makeup look. Excited? Let’s begin.
For the face:
Step 01: Start by prepping your skin for a lit-from-within glow. Follow your usual CTM routine and then move on to applying a primer. We recommend the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer to blur out all imperfections and large pores and create the perfect canvas for your foundation to glide on.
Step 02: Using a foundation that is light and dewy is crucial to get that golden goddess glow that’s why our go-to is the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation SPF 45. This foundation will not only hydrate and protect your skin from harmful UV rays thanks to its in-built SPF 45, but it lends the skin a dewy finish, which is exactly what we’re aiming for. Set the foundation in place with the Lakmé Absolute Wet And Dry Compact. Its unique formula doesn’t cake up nor will it take away the dewy finish we are looking to achieve.
Step 03: Bronzer is going to make or break this look. You want to go over the hollows of your cheekbones, jawline and hairline to get that envious sun-kissed glow like Alia.
Step 04: Next up is blush. To complement the warm tones in the look, opt for a peachy blush like the Lakmé 9to5 Pure Rouge Blusher - Ginger Surprise. Apply it on the apples of your cheeks, the tip of the nose and chin for a healthy flush of colour.
Step 05: Highlighter is just the pzazz this look needs and so for this step use the Lakmé Absolute Liquid Highlighter to make your skin glow like a goddess. Remember: A tiny bit can go a long way; don’t overdo it.
For the eyes and lips:
Step 01: For the eyes, sweep on a brown eyeshadow from the Lakmé Absolute Spotlight Eyeshadow Palette - Smokin Glam. Use the same brown eyeshadow to line your lower lash line for a subtle smokey effect. Use the shimmery golden shade to highlight the inner corner of your eyes and the brow bones.
BB Tip: Spritz some setting spray on the eyeshadow brush before using it to intensify the pigment and make your peepers pop.
Step 02: Use the Lakmé Eyeconic Volume Mascara to give your eyelashes oodles of volume. Define your brows using Lakmé 3D Brow Definer for on-fleek brows like Alia Bhatt.
Step 03: Tie the look together with a nude lipstick like Lakmé Absolute Precision Lip Paint - Alluring Nude.
Finish off this look with your favourite setting spray and voila! You’re good to go. Psst…we hope your dupatta gets stuck in the right guy’s kurta so you can live your Bollywood romantic dream; okay now, toodles!
