Bold and fierce are two words we would use to describe birthday girl, Sayani Gupta. Whether it’s playing a bold journalist in Four More Shots Please! or a young Dalit woman fighting for justice in Article 15, Sayani has done it all. Just like her onscreen roles, Sayani is quite experimental and edgy when it comes to her makeup looks offscreen and knows how to enhance her gorgeous skin tone with the help of makeup.
So, on her birthday today, here are five makeup lessons for dusky skin tones we learned from the actress.
- 1. Make highlighter your best friend
- 2. Wear a statement eye look
- 3. Experiment with coloured eyeliners
- 4. Go bold with your lipstick shades
- 5. Rock that festive look with a nude lipstick
1. Make highlighter your best friend
The best way to enhance that stunning dusky skin tone is by wearing highlighter and then some more! Sweep it across your cheekbones, brow bones, bridge of the nose, cupid’s bow and on the collar bones to recreate Sayani’s look.
BB picks: Lakme Absolute Highlighter - Moon-Lit
2. Wear a statement eye look
Opting for a no-makeup makeup look? Enhance your features by sporting a statement eye look like Sayani’s. Take a blue or green pencil eyeliner and draw an underliner. Blend it out to soften the look.

3. Experiment with coloured eyeliners
Give your black eyeliner a break and bring some colours for your eyes. Opt for coloured eyeliner like red, green and blue shades to enhance your skin tone and create an edgy look.

4. Go bold with your lipstick shades
Scroll through Sayani’s Instagram feed and you will realise she’s a hoarder of bold lipstick shades. Sometimes two quick swipes of lipstick shades like blood red, maroon or merlot are all you need to look dressed up.

5. Rock that festive look with a nude lipstick
You can never go wrong with a nude lipstick, even if it means dressing up for a festive look. Sayani shows how effortlessly beautiful dusky beauties can look with just a swipe of nude lipstick and winged eyeliner.
