Kiara Advani has been all over our social news feeds lately. The actress’s upcoming release Indoo Ki Jawani has created a buzz on the internet with Netizens drooling over her styling in the song ‘Heelein Toot Gayi’, with one particular golden saree grabbing all the attention. This shimmery, cocktail drape from Manish Malhotra is already a winner among celebs and paired with Kiara glam goddess makeup, is winning the internet. While you may have to figure how to get your hands on a similar drape for the party season yourself, we can help out with the makeup. Here’s a step-by-step guide to recreating Kiara’s smokey eye makeup look...

Step 01: Prep
To match the illuminating aesthetic of a sequined saree (with a glass of bubbly in hand), you will need to add glow to your makeup look right from the prep stage. Follow up your moisturiser (or face oil) with the Lakme Absolute Undercover Gel Primer. This will help your makeup last longer and keep your skin glowing from below the layers.
Step 02: Foundation
The second step is a staple, but with a twist of gold — use a formula like the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation to add another layer of glow while offering medium, dewy and radiant coverage. The serum content helps keep your skin nourished as well — a blessing during the winter months!
Step 03: Fill in the brows
Since the whole makeup look is dewy, the brows were kept comparatively minimal. Use the Lakme Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil - Dark Brown to lightly fill in and define your brows.
Step 04: Do the eyes and lips
We can’t take our eyes off Kiara’s attention-grabbing reverse smokey eye makeup. To create this, swipe the Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate on the lower lash line Next, take some brown eyeshadow from the Lakme Absolute Infinity Eye Shadow Palette - Midnight Magic on a small blending brush and gently smudge the kohl for a smokey look. Use the same brown shadow to define the crease and swipe on a golden eyeshadow on the lids. Line the upper lash line with brown eye pencil like the Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal - Bronze Rust to define your eyes.
For the lips, you can go on with the Lakme Absolute 3D Lipstick - Peach Pinch for a matte finish with a hint of shine.
Step 05: Add the shimmer!
Now for the fun part — use the Lakme Absolute Illuminating Shimmer Brick to add the glow you see all over Kiara’s face. Apply it to the top of your cheeks, near your hairline and bridge of the nose. Set with a setting spray and you’re good to go!
