Radhika Madan may be just one film old, but the actress has sure managed to win our hearts as much with her acting chops as she with her striking looks. Mostly seen wearing dewy makeup with just a hint of colour, Radhika’s makeup game is the perfect inspo for makeup minimalists.

The actress recently graced the November 2020 digital cover of Grazia, and totally wowed us with her festive grunge-y makeup look. Seen wearing a chiselled base and bronze eye makeup, Radhika looked uber glam and every inch the diva she totally is.

If you too want to recreate Radhika’s offbeat makeup look with shimmery lids, then here’s a step-by-step guide to help you do just that. Read on…


1. Face

Radhika ditches her usual dewy base makeup for a matte one this time around, and we love it. After your skincare routine, prep your skin with the Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer for a smooth and long-lasting base. Next, take the Lakme 9 To 5 Flawless Matte Complexion Foundation and apply it all over your face and neck with a damp beauty sponge for a seamless, skin-like finish. If you have undereye circles, blemishes or acne, conceal them with the Lakme Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer and set your base by dusting just a little bit of the Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale Finishing Powder with a large fluffy brush.


2. Cheeks

We love Radhika’s perfectly chiselled cheekbones, strategically placed highlighter and that slight flush of colour. After contouring your face, take the lighter shade from the Lakme Absolute Highlighter – Moon Lit and apply it on the centre of your forehead, bridge of the nose, cheekbones, cupid’s bow and chin for that subtle glow. Finally, using the darker shade from the Lakme Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos - Coral Blush, and apply it on to the apples of your cheeks for that earthy flush of colour.


3. Eyes and brows

Radhika’s eye makeup has to be the highlight of her look. to recreate it, start by applying the matte brown shade from Lakme Absolute Infinity Eye Shadow Palette – Midnight Magic in your crease and outer corner. Next, take the shimmery bronze shade from the Lakme 9 to 5 Eye Color Quartet Eye Shadow - Mystic Nudes pack it all over your lid. Extend it slightly outwards to create a wing. Apply two to three coats of the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara to finish your eye makeup. To achieve bushy and bold brows like Radhika, brush them up and fill in the sparse areas with the Lakme Absolute Spotlight Micro Brow Perfecter - Charcoal.


4. Lips

We love Radhika’s glossy, nude pout. To create it, start by lining and filling your lips with a nude lip liner. Next, take the Lakme Absolute Plump And Shine Lip Gloss - Beige Shine and apply it all over your lips to finish this stunning makeup look.
