Want Your Makeup To Look Like Katrina & Priyanka? Their MUA Spills The Tea

Makeup Artiste to the stars, Daniel Bauer is that guy who celebs call on whenever they want to glamm up and make an impact. Bauer works extensively with Katrina Kaif and other big names like Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma, Deepika Padukone, Ananya Panday and more. 

I had a chance to pick his brain at fashion week and Daniel delivered some amazing makeup insights for the season, including a celeb makeup secret. I’m sure you’re curious to know about it all. Read on!

What’s Going In My Bag

When asked about the five makeup products that every girl should have in their bag, Bauer replied with his top favourites. He says “concealer, mascara, blush, mattifying powder and lipstick.

Daniel specifically recommended the Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color to me and I’ve fallen in love with its airy formula.


The Most Common Makeup Mistake

According to Bauer, not prepping your skin before makeup is the biggest and most common mistake people make. “Skin prep is very important,” says Bauer, and when done correctly “it makes makeup last longer and it goes on smoother as well.” 

I too have noticed that if my skin isn’t prepped, my makeup looks cakey and my pores are emphasised. I love using the Type Beauty Get Even Moisturizing Primer after following a CTM routine to keep my base looking fresh and smooth. 

Makeup Trends That Should Never Come Back

To the question of which makeup trends should never be back in style, Bauer expressed his disdain for ‘overlined lips’ and bold ’80s makeup trends. He said that wearing too many different colours on the face like pink blush, blue eyes and bold lips are just too overpowering.

The pro tip to keep in mind when experimenting with makeup is to play up only one feature such as the eyes or lips and keep the rest of the makeup muted. 


I love going bold with my eye makeup and to complement it without raising and red flags, I use a balmy lip & cheek tint like the MyGlamm LIT Lip & Cheek Rouge – Peach Play for a soft flush of colour.

A Celeb’s Secret Makeup Trick

Bauer revealed that Priyanka Chopra shared a eyebrow grooming trick with him and he always uses it. The trick is for people with wiry brows that are difficult to fill in. Use a spoolie brush to brush up and hold the brows in place. Keep the spoolie on the brows and then use an eyebrow product to fill in the gaps and define the brow line. This gives the most natural look.

I am definitely going to try that hack because my brows are bushy and hard to tame. I’m going to use Priyanka’s favourite brow product which is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze to get the job done.

Makeup Trends For Summer

For the summer, Bauer said the best makeup trend is essentially “owning your look.” He goes on to explain that if you are someone who likes eyeliner go extreme with it, opt for dramatic eyeliner styles. If you like colours go all out. Own the look. It’s your personality that needs to come through and that’s what you should showcase in your makeup.


I love this piece of advice and I feel like more and more makeup mavens are creatively expressing themselves through makeup, celebs like Disha Patani and Deepika Padukone included.

I love expressing myself through eye makeup and the POPxo Makeup Collection Liquid Eyeliner Kit – Issa Vibe is perfect for me.

If I were you, I’d make mental notes of every single makeup tip and advice Daniel Bauer just dished out. The man is a pure genius.
