The weekend is nigh and Kiara Advani is just the inspiration we’re looking for. Judging from her latest post on Instagram, Advani is ready to get her Glamm on for the weekend.
For a recent awards night, the star took to the red carpet in a sequined metallic blue jumpsuit that had all the hallmarks of a signature Kiara look- plunging neckline and all-over sequins for the extra sparkle. And even though her outfit was spectacular, it was her makeup that got our hearts racing. To stand out from the sea of smokey eyes on the red carpet, Kiara opted for a high-shine makeup look to mirror the luminosity of the sequined outfit. Kiara’s coral eye makeup teamed up with wispy lashes, glassy lips, and wet-hairdo are gorgeous enough to steal the show, but her carved-out brows bring all the attention to her eyes. Now that’s the kind of weekend makeup we were longing for, and of course, it’s Kiara who lives up to our beauty expectations. While the party season may be behind us, an all-over shine look like hers is always a handy addition to your makeup arsenal. If you have a celebration on your schedule, here’s how to nail your makeup game like a glam queen.
Fresh, dewy, and flattering – three words that define Kiara’s signature makeup base. So before you start, tone and moisturise your skin with a hydrating cream. Next, apply a strobe cream or a tinted primer that has a halo of its own. Apply it all over your face using either your fingers or a brush. Grab your foundation and begin by applying it in thin layers. Dot and blend concealer under the eyes and on any scars or blemishes you wish to cover.
Fill in any gaps in the brows with your eyebrow pencil and feather them out with a spoolie. If you’re blessed with bushy eyebrows, you can just use a brow gel to set them in place.
It looks tricky but is actually very easy to emulate this eye makeup. All you have to do is apply an eye primer to prep the lids. Then, top it off with a cream concealer and blend. Grab a nude coral eyeshadow and use a brush to contour your sockets, paint your lids and trace it along the lower lash line. Then, take a dark brown liner and apply it along the upper and lower lash line. Apply 2-3 coats of mascara on the top and bottom lashes. If you’re exacting, opt for falsies to further amplify the drama.
Set the makeup on your forehead, around the chin, and nose using a translucent powder to keep it from creasing. With a powder bronzer, warm up your complexion, focusing on the areas where the sun would naturally hit.
To mimic Kiara-esque flush, apply cream blush on the apple of your cheeks, and blend it upwards towards the temple. Apply a liquid highlighter on the high point of your face including your cheekbones and the bridge of your nose to get the glow of your dreams. Then, set the base by spritzing on a makeup setting spray.
Complete the look by sweeping on a high-shine coral lip gloss.
Try this look and we bet all eyes will be on YOU!
