Janhvi Kapoor has us hooked to her easy-breezy Indian outfits, and stunning no-makeup makeup looks since the time she made her debut with Dhadak in 2018. As if her high cheekbones and million-dollar smile weren’t enough, Janhvi’s on-point makeup game manages to make us go weak in our knees each time.
For one of her recent photoshoots, Janhvi swapped her usual minimal makeup look for something much bolder. She was seen sporting statement kohl-rimmed eyes and perfectly sculpted cheekbones, which she paired with a sleek, sky-high ponytail. Everything about Janhvi’s look screams badass, and we are totally in love!
If you want to find out how to recreate this stunning makeup look, then here’s a complete step-by-step guide just for you! Read on…
Step 01: To achieve Janhvi’s matte base, start with moisturising your face and neck with the Lakme 9 to 5 Matte Moist Mattifying Moisturiser.
Step 02: Next, take a matte a finish foundation such as the Lakme 9 To 5 Primer + Matte Perfect Cover Foundation and blend it into your skin using a brush or damp makeup sponge. Start by applying a thin layer and then build it up if you need more coverage.
Step 03: To cover up any other visible problem areas such as dark circles, acne, blemishes or discolouration, apply a little bit of the Lakme Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer and blend well for a flawless, skin-like finish.
Step 04: Swipe on some of the Lakme 9 to 5 Pure Rouge Blusher - Peach Affair on the apples of your cheeks and blend it outwards to give the illusion of contoured cheekbones.
Step 05: Finish off by applying a little bit of the lighter shade from the Lakme Absolute Highlighter – Moon Lit on the areas where the light hits your face. This means on top of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, forehead, cupid’s bow and chin.
Step 01: Start with swiping on some nude brown eyeshadow from the Lakme Absolute Spotlight Eye Shadow Palette - Smokin Glam all over your eyelids.
Step 02: Next, take the Lakme Eyeconic Liquid Eyeliner – Black and draw a bold, eyeliner. Be sure to extend it outwards for a subtle wing.
Step 03: Now, define your lower lash line using the Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal – Black and join it to your eyeliner from the outer corner. Smoke it out just a little bit for a more intense effect.
Step 04: Finish off your eye makeup by applying at least two generous coats of the Lakme Absolute 3D Lash Volumizer Mascara to get perfectly voluminous and long lashes just like Janhvi’s.
Step 01: Janhvi has kept her lip makeup super nude and subtle to balance her bold eyes. After moisturising your lips, use a nude lip pencil to line and fill in your lips. This provides the perfect base for your lipstick to cling onto.
Step 02: Take a matte nude lipstick such as the Lakme Cushion Matte Lipstick - Nude Toast and apply it all over your lips using a lip brush for precision and voila! You’re ready to slay.
