Sara Ali Khan is a fashion icon. Experimental and quirky is how we would describe her style. But when it comes to makeup, the actress prefers keeping it simple and classic with her signature neutral makeup look. Over the last few days, Sara has been posting a lot of pictures from the promotions of her upcoming movie Coolie No.1. And we loved how she paired all her outfits with her neutral makeup — looking gorgeous in each one of them. It is simple to recreate and can be paired with any kind of outfit due to its versatility. Here’s how you can achieve it.
- Tip #01: Use a CC cream
- Tip #02: Fill your brows
- Tip #03: Pick a brown eyeshadow
- Tip #04: Dust some blush
- Tip #05: Finish off with a nude lipstick
Tip #01: Use a CC cream
Instead of reaching out for a high coverage foundation, stick to a lightweight formula to get a natural-looking base. A BB or CC cream would be perfect for this, especially if you don’t have a lot of skin concerns. The Lakme 9 To 5 Complexion Care Face CC Cream SPF 30 PA++ corrects uneven skin tone, moisturises skin and conceals spots, making it an excellent product to use for neutral makeup.
Tip #02: Fill your brows
Even while doing a basic makeup look, don’t forget to fill in your brows. It will frame your face like no other and elevate your look. To get natural-looking, perfectly filled brows, use a combination of brown and dark brown shades. The Lakme Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil - Dark Brown is a soft creamy formula with a precision tip that allows you to create evenly filled, defined brows.
Tip #03: Pick a brown eyeshadow
Next, pick a brown shade from your eyeshadow palette. Preferably one that’s two shades darker than your natural skin tone. Apply the shade close to your lash line using an eyeshadow brush, then blend it out upwards. Then pick another brown shade, darker than the first one and repeat the same process. Use the excess product on the brush to line your waterline. The Lakme Absolute Infinity Eye Shadow Palette - Soft Nudes contains the perfect brown shades to create a neutral makeup look.
Tip #04: Dust some blush
Take a fluffy brush and swirl it into a soft pink or peach blush like the Lakme 9 To 5 Pure Rouge Blusher - Coral Punch and apply it on the apples of your cheeks to get naturally flushed cheeks. The blusher provides sheer, lightweight coverage, making the cheeks look natural and glowy.
Tip #05: Finish off with a nude lipstick
Tie the look together with a nude lipstick shade that’s close to your natural lip colour. The Lakme 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lip Color - Blushing Nude goes with most Indian skin tones.
