Awards season is truly a fashion or a beauty junkie’s favourite time of the year! Celebrities turn up in the most enviable outfits for various award shows and there’s a ton of beauty looks to take inspiration from. And now that Christmas and New Year’s parties are approaching, you must keep an eye out for beauty looks to replicate for yourself!
While browsing through the pictures of Bollywood divas at the Zee Cine Awards, we stumbled upon and couldn’t stop staring at Katrina Kaif’s stunning understated glam look. She wore a gorgeous gold Manish Malhotra outfit and her makeup gorgeously complemented it.
This look is perfect for parties, especially if your outfits/accessories are blingy and need to be the center of everyone’s attention. Here’s how you can recreate it…
Katrina pulled off a luminous, dewy makeup look that was blended to perfection. The key to acing this makeup look is to blend, blend and blend! Let’s start with the base…
A flawless base is the foundation (pun intended) of good makeup, and the key to a flawless base is hydration! When your skin is well-hydrated, it clearly shows as it glows from within. Quench your skin’s thirst by immensely hydrating it with Lakmé Peach Milk Soft Crème Moisturiser that nourishes and hydrates without making it greasy.
Next, opt for the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation, because an extra boost of hydration in the form of makeup did no one harm. Blend it using a damp beauty blender.
Highlighter and blush
Nothing does justice to a dewy makeup look like a good highlighter. It enhances the skin’s texture, defines the face and looks gorgeous in pictures. Achieve a glow like Katrina’s with Lakmé Absolute Moonlit Highlighter–gently dab it on the highpoints of your face using your finger or a fan brush. Blend it well.
Who doesn’t love rosy, flushed cheeks? Using a blush brush, dust the apples of your cheeks with the Lakmé Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duo in Coral Blush. Remember to gently blend the highlighter and the blush so that it looks like one finished product with no harsh lines.
Kat chose to keep her eyes dramatic by opting for soft gold smokey eyes and super long lashes. Use the gold hues from Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in Gold on the lid and softly blend towards the inner corner of your eyes. For the outer corner, use the black eye shadow shade form the same palette. Blend both the colours well. Next, use the Lakmé Eyeconic kajal on your lower lash line and immediately smudge it using a smudging brush. Finish the eye makeup with a generous coat of mascara for length as well as volume! You can also use falsies, but don’t forget to coat them with mascara such as the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara.
Pale, natural and loaded with gloss–Katrina’s signature lip is a great finisher to this stunning makeup look! You can leave your lips bare and just add some clear gloss or use the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil lip colour in Soft Nude and top it off with clear gloss. Tip – lightly dust the Lakmé Absolute Moonlit Highlighter on your cupid’s bow to enhance the pout. Use a fan brush to do this.
Katrina looked ethereal at the Zee Cine Awards and you can easily replicate her look for your upcoming parties! Would you try it?
