Bebo’s sultry eyes have always been an obsession for make-up lovers. The Begum of Bollywood graced the ramp for fashion designer and friend Manish Malhotra over the weekend. The design maven hosted a fashion show in Nairobi, Kenya and Kareena Kapoor Khan was the showstopper. Dressed in an ivory embroidered lehenga with a corset style choli, Bebo looked divine. But her eyes got me in a tizzy! So here it is, how you can recreate the look at home!
This is a sultry bronze-gold smokey eye with a midnight blue eyeliner and voluminous lashes.
1. Start by priming your eyelids with an eyeshadow primer. Then add a brown eyeshadow that is closest to your contour shade onto the entire lid. Now use a medium brown to define your crease. Blending a chocolate brown eyeshadow on the outer corner for a smokey effect.
2. Take your favourite black eyeshadow and draw on a smudged-out line closest to your lashline. Then add gold eyeshadow to the middle of the eyelid. Blend well. Use the same gold to highlight the inner corner of your eyes as well. Swipe midnight blue liquid eyeliner to make a dramatic wing. Now take some black eyeshadow with an angled brush and smoke out the ends.
3. Tightline your eyes with jet black kohl and use the same to line your waterline, leaving the inner corner alone. Use the same eyeliner on your bottom lash line as well and smoke it out using the same angled brush. Add 2 coats of volumising mascara after curling your lashes and then add a pair of cat eye falsies. Wipe off the fallout and then begin with your face make-up.
Because the eyes were so bold, the rest of the face was kept fairly muted and shine free.
Start with your usual CTM routine and follow with a mattifying primer. Follow with a sheer coverage foundation and then conceal your blemishes. Dab your under eyes with a lighter/rosier concealer for a brighter look. Set your base with a sheer translucent powder. Contour the shadows and blend well, ideally use a contour stick for a more sheer finish. Highlight the high points of your face and highlight the cupid’s bow. Use a dusty rose blush with a light hand on the apples of your cheeks.
The hair was pulled back into a sleek bun complementing her stunning jawline.
Brush all of your hair back in a low ponytail, after you add some gel to your crown. Brush through the flat hair on your crown with a fine comb and tame flyaways with a hairspray. Twist the ponytail around itself to create a sleek bun and secure with bobby pins. Spritz hairspray to keep it in place.
Please send me pictures if you recreate this look, I would LOVE to see it!
