Birthday girl Rakul Preet Singh is more than just a conscious foodie and fitness junkie - absolutely stunning. This is true for her hairstyling choices as well; a sneaky braid here or a face-framing tendril there and she is ready for her glam shots. Since the festive season is almost upon us and looks like it’s going to be a low-key affair, Rakul’s beauty lookbook is the perfect handy guide to take inspiration from. Here are some of our favourite minimal beauty moments from her...the Punjabi kudi knows how to put together a glam look! Rakul’s approach towards makeup always impresses us. It is minimal yet chic, simplistic yet ends up looking

1. Soft glam

We love how understated yet beautiful Rakul’s look is. The whole focus has been drawn to the eyes with a wash of shimmery eyeshadow on the lids and a swipe of kohl on the waterline. Blushed out cheeks and a hint of gloss on the lips complete her look. We love how the loose tendrils just add to the whole look.

2. The perfect lehenga hairstyle

Defined, soft waves paired with crown braids and face-framing wavy tendrils — we do believe this is the perfect lehenga hairstyle that you can do on your own without any hassle! Make sure you prep your tresses with a deep conditioning mask before heat styling to keep frizzy waves at bay.

3. Desi fusion ‘do

Desi fusion looks will not be in-vogue and this low half-bun is a smart hairstyle to pair with them. Add some texture in your mane and brush out your hair to add some volume. Add some height on the crown and yes, leave out thin strands of hair in the front for a relaxed, yet chic look.
BB picks: TIGI Bed Head Manipulator Styling
4. One Wednesdays, we wear pink

The key to recreating this glowy look is glitter lids paired with a glossy pout and all-over highlighter. The neatly filled-in bold brows form a nice contrast to the otherwise soft makeup look.

5. Kohl eyes for max effect

When in doubt, grab the kohl! Kohl-rimmed eyes paired with peachy lips, lids and cheeks — trust Rakul to make such a minimalist look oh-so-stunning. We love that baby bindi moment as well!
