3 Bollywood Makeup Breakdowns That You Can Recreate In Just Five Minutes

Let Your Natural Radiance Peek Through

Ananya Panday knows how to rock a no-makeup makeup look and this one is great for the festive season:

Step One: Prime your face with a glow-enhancing primer and then go in with a light base. If you want to pick a light to medium coverage foundation, go for that, otherwise, even a BB cream looks great. Highlight and conceal your undereye area and set it all in place using a loose powder.

Step Two: Take a matte brown shade and blend it into your crease and draw a thin eyeliner. Coat your upper and lower lashes with mascara and fill in your brows. 

Step Three: Bronze the skin using a matte bronzer and highlight the tops of your cheeks using a champagne colour.

Step Four: Put on your fav nude pink lipstick and you're done!

That Classic Red Lip Thing That You Like

You can't go wrong with red lipstick during the festive season and Alaya Furniturewala shows us how it's done:

Step One: After applying moisturiser and primer on your skin, blend in a matte foundation and concealer, and set all your cream products in place.

Step Two: Take a nude brown colour to add depth to the crease and apply a gold metallic shadow to your entire lid. Add a champagne shade to your inner corners to make them pop and apply loads of macara.

Step Three: Fill in your brows and set them in place.

Step Four: Apply blush to the apples of your cheeks and the highlighter to the high points of your face i.e. your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, your cupids bow, and brow bone.

Step Five: Finish it off with a firey red lipstick!

A Pop Of Colour

Sanya Malhotra knows how to ace an unconventional makeup look and we're breaking this one down for you:

Step One: Use a mattifying primer all over your face so that your makeup doesn't melt away throughout the night and then go in with your base. Dab in foundation and wherever you need extra coverage, take the help of concealer.

Step Two: Apply translucent powder with a powder puff to set it all in place.

Step Three: Go in with a brown eyeshadow all over the lid, concentrating it in the crease. Then take a black liquid liner and draw a winged eye and tight line the upper and lower lashline with black kohl. Just under the wing, draw another flick with a yellow liner, apply some mascara and you're done with the eyes.

Step Four: Fill in your brows, imitating the natural hair there.

Step Five: Apply a nude lipstick all over the lips and you're party-ready.
