That glow though!

Kareena Kapoor’s signature smokey eye is such an essential part of her lewrks that on days when she skips it, we have to stop and take notice. With the sweltering heat making it it trickier to glam up, Kareena bid her farewell to her usual glammed up avatar in a more summer appropriate glow. Her makeup artist, Mickey Contractor (who is a celebrity in his own right) kept things summer-friendly with alight dewy base, kohl rimmed eyes and nude lip. Kareena’s showed off her glossy summer skin with her a sleek warrior princess-esque braid (But that’s a story for another day!) Thankfully, the makeup look is refreshingly simple and super easy to create. So if you want in on that summer-gloss look, read on!


02/5The base

The base

You could use the dewiest of foundations, but it won’t glow if your skin isn’t moisturised and hydrated. Prep your skin will water based moisturiser. This will make the skin plump and allow the foundation to glide beautifully on the skin. Use a damp beauty blender to apply the foundation. To take the dewiness up a notch, use a fixing spay over the base.


03/5Contour lightly

Contour lightly
Kareena seemed to have ditched her sharp contouring aesthetics as well. To keep her cheeks enhanced and contoured, she switched to a cream blush to add a flush of colour and light contour. Pick a cream blush with shimmer and apply on the highs of the cheeks and blend downwards. You may use your fingers or beauty blender to blend the product flawlessly. We love YBP Color Cream - The Princess for this. readmore

04/5Line deeply

Line deeply
Kohl rimmed eyes were clearly the heart of this look. You need a kohl pencil that’s pigmented, creamy and smudge proof for this look. Use the Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal to line your water line. Use the smudge tool on the other end to blend the kohl outwards. If your eye area is too oily, you can settle the product with a matte black eyeshadow. Finish off with a lengenthing mascara.readmore

Natural pout
To recreate Kareena’s gorgeous pout, prep the lips with a scrub and balm. Wipe off all the balmy excess before applying the lip colour. We love the Bobbi Brown Crushed Liquid Lip Color - Juicy Date for its pigmented colour and dewy matte finish. readmore
