Alaya F is the Gen Z cool girl that’s captured young India’s imagination. She has over a million followers on Instagram and was recently presented with a Filmfare Award for Best Debut for her performance in Jawaani Jaaneman. But what really makes her stand out from the crop of B-town star kids is the sharp sartorial instincts that she matches with equally noteworthy beauty looks. Ever since her introduction, the actor has never shied away to try the most fun beauty trend. Pink eyeliner, yellow eyeshadow, or monochromatic makeup, Alaya F has been there, done that. 

Yesterday, the star took to Instagram to share an effortlessly chic makeup look. While our social feeds may be chocker-full of intense graphic eyeliner looks, Alaya F is here to remind us of the undeniable charm of a classic monochromatic look. The edgy look will really pop up on camera and is perfect for every freakin’ occasion – happy hours, brunch, or your big date night, which is why we are sharing with you how to recreate it in just six easy steps.

Step 1: To Rock That Picture-Perfect Base

A natural glow begins with the right moisturiser. Before you start, moisturise your skin with a hydrating cream. Next, apply a tinted moisturiser with buildable coverage all over your face using either your fingers or a brush. Pat and blend a creamy concealer under the eyes and on any scars and blemishes. 

Step 2: Thou Brow Shalt Stay On Fleek

Use a brow pencil to fill in any gaps in the brows and feather them out with a spoolie. If you’re blessed with fuller eyebrows, you can just use a brow gel to put stray hairs in place.

Step 3: It’s Your Eyes Where The Magic Resides

Smear an eyeshadow primer across your eyelids to ensure your makeup stays put all night long. Take a nude peachy pink shade on a crease brush to define the sockets and also along the lower lash line. Then, with a flat shader brush, apply a slightly darker shade all over the lids. Grab a kohl eyeliner pencil and apply winged eyeliner. Use nude kohl to line your lower waterline. Finally, apply a coat of mascara on the top and bottom lashes or choose a voluminous pair of falsies.

Step 4: For That Model-Perfect Cheekbones

Use a cream bronzer along your jawline, hairline and cheekbones for a more chiselled look. Make sure you blend it well.

Step 5: You Glow Girl!

Apply a cream highlighter on cheeks and high points of the face, using your fingers to pat and press the product. Then, apply an illuminating, cream blush on the apple of your cheeks, blend it upwards towards the temple. 

Step 6: ‘Coz We Believe In Pink!

Use a creamy lipstick in a peachy-pink hue to complete this eye-catching beauty look. Finally, you can make your makeup last longer by spritzing on a makeup setting spray. 

This look is perfect for every freakin’ occasion!
