One of our favourite actresses to turn to for makeup inspo has to be Mouni Roy. Her makeup looks are clean, minimal and oh-so-easy to recreate — we love!

The stunning actress dropped another gorgeous makeup look just in time for the shaadi season. Dressed in a beautiful ruffled red saree and a sequined blouse in the same colour, the actress looked every inch like the diva she truly is. She paired this saree with a shimmery rose gold eyeshadow, her standard winged eyeliner and a statement red lip.

If you’ve got a wedding to attend anytime soon, this is one look you definitely ought to try. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you nail this wedding guest makeup look…


1. Face


Step 01: After moisturising your face, start by applying a pea-sized amount of the Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer, concentrating on those areas that tend to get oily. This includes your T-zone, cheeks and upper lips.

Step 02: To achieve a matte base like Mouni, start with dotting your face and neck with the Lakme 9 To 5 Primer + Matte Perfect Cover Foundation and blend it in using a brush or makeup sponge.

Step 03: Next, take the Lakme Absolulte White Intense Liquid Concealer SPF 25 and apply it over any visible imperfections such as dark circles, blemishes, etc.

Step 04: Set your base in place and prevent it from looking oily by dusting a little bit of the Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale Finishing Powder.


2. Cheeks


Step 01: Take a little bit of the darker shade from the Lakme Absolute Highlighter – Moon Lit and apply it under your cheekbones to add a little warmth to your face and give it a nice sun-kissed look like Mouni’s.

Step 02: Next, take a warm peachy blush such as the Lakme 9 to 5 Pure Rouge Blusher - Peach Affair and apply it to the apples of your cheeks. Remember to blend it outwards and upwards to give your face a chiselled appearance.

Step 03: Finally, take the lighter shade from the Lakme Absolute Highlighter – Moon Lit palette and swipe it onto the highpoints of your face like the cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, forehead, cupid’s bow and chin.


3. Eyes


Step 01: Start with taking the matte mauve shade from the Lakme Absolute Spotlight Eye Shadow Palette - Smokin Glam onto an eyeshadow brush and apply it onto your crease and the outer eye corner.

Step 02: Next, take the shimmery rose gold shade from the same palette and pack it all over your lid. Blend the two shades properly to get rid of harsh lines and edges.

Step 03: Create a thick eyeliner with a delicate wing using the Lakme Absolute Shine Line Eye Liner – Black. Define your waterline with the Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal - Ash Brown and smudge it out slightly using the smudger at the other end.

Step 04: Curl your lashes (you could even wear a pair of falsies) and define them by applying generous two coats of the Lakme Eyeconic Mascara. Remember to apply it to your lower lash line as well.

Step 05: Brush up your brows with a clean spoolie and then fill in any gaps using the Lakme Absolute 3D Eye Brow Definer. This will give you beautifully bold and defined brows similar to Mouni’s.


4. Lips


Step 01: Start with prepping your lips by applying a little bit of the Vaseline Lip Therapy Color & Care Chapstick – Cherry lip balm. Leave it on for about 5 minutes and then wipe off the excess using a clean tissue.

Step 02: Next, line and fill in your lips using the Lakme Absolute Forever Silk Lip Liner - Poppy Red.

Step 03: Finally, apply two coats of the Lakme Absolute Matte Revolution Lip Color - 101 Bombshell Red all over your lip for a sexy, defined pout just like Mouni’s.
