Leo girls are just like a campfire, beautiful, warm and comforting. But stir them the wrong way and watch them singe you! They are ruled by the brightest star of them all, the Sun, and their makeup reflects this. They love bold colours and are unafraid to experiment with their look.

Their makeup is always the centre of attention and steals the show. So this August, we decode a feral Leo look for all the felines out there. Scroll down for some beauty inspo, Leo style!

Flawless face base and radiant highlighter

Nothing short of perfect will do for the lioness. For the perfect base to your makeup, prep your face with the C-T-M routine and apply a light foundation like Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation. Even out skin tone by concealing pigmented areas with Lakmé Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick. Set the foundation with a setting powder like Lakmé 9to5 Naturale Finishing Powder. Using a fan brush apply Lakmé Absolute Moon-Lit Highlighter just at the top of the cheekbones, on the bridge of the nose and on your Cupid’s Bow.

Fierce eyes
 

Fierce eyes

Leos express a lot through their eyes and you want them to be the focus of your look. Sweep a golden-bronze eye shadow all over your upper eye lids, making sure you do not extend beyond the crease. Blend the colour upwards and outwards, and extend it slightly beyond the outer corners of your eye to give a cat-eye shape. Line your lower lash line also with the same golden-bronze shade. We love the Lakmé 9to5 Eye Quartet – Silk Route palette for this. You can play around with the colours of this palette to achieve this look. Apply Lakmé 9to5 Naturale Gel Kajal with a brush on your upper lash line, extending to match the cat-eye shape you have created with the eye shadow. Load your lashes with Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara for an intense finish.

The bold lip
 

The bold lip

To get an intense finish that lasts long after you have danced the night away, make sure you have scrubbed and exfoliated your lips. Nothing ruins lipstick than dry flakes on the lips. Now that your lips are smooth, line them with a deep red liner. The benefits of using a lip liner is that they are thick and waxy, so they will hold the lipstick for longer and give a deeper finish while preventing the lip colour from spreading outside the boundaries of the lip. Use a bold wine colour like Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Color in shade Soaked Berries and dab a little golden eye shadow on the centre of your upper and lower lips to add a hint of gold on your lips.

The strong brows
 

The strong brows

Fill in your brows with a colour that is a shade lighter than your natural hair colour like the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown to finish your Leo inspired look! Wear a gold coronet or a headband, and we have the queen of the jungle, ready to go on the prowl!
