The 90’s actress recently graced the cover of Femina in a bikini top and sarong and boy did she sizzle! Her soft yet striking makeup is perfect for your next beach holiday. Here’s how you can recreate the look yourself...
To keep your makeup fresh and minimal, start by prepping your face with a hydrating primer. A primer will not just hold your makeup in place for a longer period of time but also ensure that your makeup products glide on smoothly to achieve that perfect finish. Next, build a flawless base with the help of a matte foundation. Take a damp beauty blender to blend your foundation in, as the damp surface will give you streak-free blending. Lastly, finish off your face makeup by adding a pop of colour to your cheeks. A few strokes of pink blush will give your cheeks a fresh, rosy glow.

For all those who love keeping their makeup minimal yet striking must definitely take cues from Shilpa Shetty on how to ace that soft smokey look with panache. Pick a black shadow with a hint of shimmer and go over with it on your upper lids. Highlight your brow bone using a bronzy shadow and go over with the same shadow on your lower lids. Brush them brows for more definition and finish off with double coats of mascara. And voila!

The basic rule of acing any look (for a makeup minimalist) is playing up one feature—either eyes or lips. Ditch the bright pinks and bold reds for a subtler shade of lipstick. If you don’t want to opt for the usual nude, then pick a muted pink semi-matte lip colour. Yes, it can do wonders in completing your look! Start by lining your lips using the Lakmé 9 To 5 Lip Liner - Coral Chic and follow it up with the Elle 18 Color Pop Matte Lip Color - Pink Kiss which promises to provide high colour payoff and lasts longer.
