A few hours before she hit the ramp as Anamika Khanna’s showstopper at Lakmé Fashion Week, we had a chance to chat with none other than the woman who constantly redefines beauty–Kareena Kapoor Khan. Complementing her gorgeous beige and off-white ensemble by Anamika Khanna was her flushed out, nude makeup look. Know what we’re getting at? The Lakmé Absolute Reinvent Nudes collection And so, we spoke about all things makeup (nude makeup, with a hint of colour to be precise) with her–scroll down to read what she had to say…
Kareena Kapoor Khan on Lakme Absolutes Reinvent Nudes Collection

Be Beautiful: Why did the concept of Lakmé Absolute Reinvent Nudes i.e. nudes with a hint of colour appeal to you?

Kareena: I think everyone loves nudes and the fact that there’s some amount of colour involved in it, be it salmon pinks, purples, browns etc. makes the collection different and ideal for Indian women. It’s fun, feminine and perfect for summer.

BB: A nude, no makeup makeup look or a bold, glamorous look. What’s your favourite?

Kareena: Honestly, I like both for different occasions. The classic day look with the nudes and a night look with bolder colours!

BB: What’s your go-to nude shade from the Lakmé Absolute Reinvent Nudes collection?

Kareena: I love the lip colour in Caramel Custard which I’m wearing right now. It’s a stunning yet warm shade.

BB: A makeup mistake women need to stop making?

Kareena: Makeup mistakes? I don’t think I should be the one to comment because there’s so much diversity in the world and people like so many different kinds of makeup, different ways of doing eyes, lips etc. All that said, I think foundation is key so women should be careful in choosing the right shade.

BB: Makeup on the eyes, lips or both? What do you prefer?

Kareena: Well, I think I am more of an eye makeup girl as opposed to the lips. I love dramatic eyes and the Lakmé kohl pencils are my absolute favourites.  

BB: Lakmé Absolute Reinvent Nudes for you is…

Kareena: For me, the collection is glamorous, and as the name suggests, is reinvented. It’s got so many colours and shades that will suit every Indian girl out there. It’s perfect!
