Masaba Gupta is at the top of our stalking list when it comes to the ‘gram. Besides, giving us a dekko into her couture and designs, she’s also a makeup enthusiast who off and on posts her version of quick makeup tutorials too! Just before she headed for an award show recently, she gave us a sneak peek into her makeup look, thanks to her always entertaining Insta stories. That’s when we knew we wanted to try this makeup look ourselves. So if you loved her look as much as us, the stepwise breakdown below should help you out…
Masaba Guptas Makeup Look


Looks like Masaba has caught on to the nude makeup trend. To get her makeup look, first prep your skin with a hydrating moisturiser that suits your skin type and then go for coverage. Rely on the Lakmé Absolute Skin Natural Mousse – Hydrating that will heal the dryness in your skin and give it medium coverage. Make sure you seal your foundation with a compact that seamlessly blends into your skin.


Our favourite part about this makeup look? Her intense eye makeup, of course! She’s gone with a winged eye but also severely lined the lower lash line. Like that wasn’t enough, she’s gone in and smoked out the upper lash line a wee bit to give us her version of smokey eyes. To try this eye makeup look, first create a wing using the Lakmé Eyeconic Liner Pen. Next, get your hands on the Lakmé Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal Pencil, Black and line your lower lashline while connecting it to your wing on the outer corner of the eyes. Use this pencil to go over your cat eye and then use the other side of the pencil to smudge the upper lid area a wee bit. Finish off with a volume-giving mascara and ta-da—you have her sexy eye makeup on you!


We love Masaba’s bronzed look here. To get it yourself, use the bronzer side of the Lakmé Absolute Moonlit Highlighter on your cheekbones, jawline and on your forehead (if you have a wide forehead). Blend using a contouring brush.


See that hint of glitzy pink on her cheeks? To get that yourself, use the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Shimmer Brick, Pink on the apples of your cheeks.


Remember that time the designer herself collaborated with Lakmé to come up with her line of lipsticks? You can totally use one of those to get her lips here. Go with the Lakmé Absolute Lip Pout Matte Masaba Lip Color, Bubble Pink that’ll surely add a pop of colour to your nude look.
