Known for some of her looks on the ramp, she also managed to stand out in Padmaavat. We’ve been crushing on Aditi Rao Hydari lately and her recent Instagram photos are stunning! We decided to re-create one of Aditi's recent looks. What fun is that without a little challenge, right? Now we may not have access to her celebrity makeup artist, but we definitely know how to get this look on a budget. We recreated Aditi’s nude glow look in under Rs. 2,000 and you can too! Here’s how.

This is literally my everyday go-to makeup look. It’s timeless and you can’t go wrong with it. Even if you’re a no makeup person, tell me you don’t want to look like this every day? That sun-kissed skin, nude lips and those subtle smokey eyes are literally what I’m living for right now.
It took us 10 minutes to recreate Aditi’s look and here’s a breakdown of everything we used!
1. The best way to achieve a look like this is by skipping foundation. Use a BB cream or a tinted moisturiser instead. I use the Ponds White Beauty Blemish Balm Fairness Cream (Rs 88) with my fingers when I’m in a rush or a foundation sponge if I have some extra time. Dab a little bit of liquid highlighter on your cheekbone, brow bone and the tip of your nose for a sun-kissed look. If you want an all-over glow, mix a smidge of it with the BB cream and apply it all over your face. The Wet n Wild MegaGlo Hello Halo Liquid Highlighter - Guilded Glow (Rs 675) is a stunning liquid highlighter. It gives you a subtle, radiant sheen. The highlighter has a luminous finish without making your face look like a hot mess.
2. Use a lip and cheek pencil to add a flush of colour to your cheeks and your lips. The Nykaa Pout Perfect Lip & Cheek Velvet Matte Crayon Lipstick - Bare It Babydoll (Rs 449) works really well for a nude look like this. Just apply very little on your lips and cheeks and smudge it out with your fingers.
3. For your eyes, use a warm brown eyeshadow palette like the Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow 10 Pan Palette - Nude Awakening (Rs 499). Use a fluffy brush like the Pro Arte Buffer Brush (Rs 250) and cover your eyelids with light brown eyeshadow. Create that intensity by building the pigment gradually. Use a darker shade of brown to achieve a brown smokey eye. Don’t go above your crease though. PS! We’re about to let you in on a makeup artists’ secret. Dark brown eyeshadow doubles up as eyebrow pomade. YOU’RE WELCOME!
