Alia is a beauty veteran and is constantly experimenting with updos, makeup looks and skin care fads. Way before there was a ‘save’ button on Instagram, Alia was already inspiring our ‘looks for later’ in the form of magazine cut-outs pinned across our mood boards since 2012. The actor found her sartorial stride that decade, and inspired fans everywhere to embrace dewy skin, master monochromatic looks, and skip multi-colour eyeshadow looks for something simpler. She loves a barely-there, ‘no-makeup makeup’ moment and her Instagram is chock-full of scroll-stopping beauty looks.
Attending her bestie’s sister’s wedding over the weekend, Alia made it a point to keep all her makeup looks understated and fresh. So, if you’re a less is more girl too, you’re going to want to screenshot them all for your calendar full of social events.
Monochromatic isn’t synonymous with boring. Alia Bhatt is the flag-bearer of matchy-matchy makeup and we’re officially on board. For the look created by Puneet B Saini, Bhatt balanced her soft, hazy pink eyeshadow with a pink lip and a dewy makeup base. Wanna ape that model-perfect look? Stick to a soft-focused makeup base, apply a cream highlighter on cheeks and high points of the face, using your fingers to pat and press the product. Then, apply a rosy cream blush on the apple of your cheeks, blend it upwards towards the temple.
Alia has a signature beauty look down pat – creamy, lit-from-within skin, lots of mascara to accentuate her eyes, and a matte lipstick in a rose or pink shade. With the use of the same colour palette for her lips, eyes, and cheeks, going monochrome is the best for creating a cohesive and harmonious feel. The beauty looks work for any occasion and you don’t need to be an expert to pull it off. To achieve that Alia-esque glow, give your face a two-minute massage with a rich, creamy moisturiser. Then, follow it with a luminous priming elixir. Next, choose a dewy foundation as you base and buff it on the skin with a brush.
Alia is here to remind us of the undeniable charm of simple kohl-rimmed eyes. Case in point: Her breezy and fun makeup look that she teamed up with a saree. Bonus: it’s super easy to recreate and you’ll feel super glam from the moment you swipe on this Alia-approved makeup look. All you need is a swipe of kohl, smudged softly and team it up with dewy skin. The makeup looks effortless and works across occasions and clothing choices. No wonder the trend has already found fans among celebrities.
