Gold & Glossy: Malaika Arora's MUA Breaks Down Her Makeup Look For Us!

What's the prettiest thing we've seen on the internet today? Malaika Arora's glowy makeup, of course! According to our Queen, gold, glossy makeup is the way forward. Celebrity Hair and Makeup Artist, Meghna Butani, did a fine job at accentuating Malaika's features and giving her skin a glamourous, shimmery finish. With waves identical to Jessica Rabbit's, this is by far one of my favourite looks of Malaika Arora. This picture is gold!


So what went into making Malaika Arora look like a million bucks? Meghna Butani, do tell!

Malaika's MUA, Meghna Butani Breaks It Down

You too can get the exact look by using the same products Meghna used to put this makeup look together!

Step 1: For hydrated, moisturised skin, Meghna first used the Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist and later used the Fenty Beauty By Rihanna Pro Filtr Instant Retouch Primer to even out Malaika's skin tone and minimize the appearance of fine lines and large pores. (Since Tatcha and Fenty Beauty are yet to officially launch in India, here are some options for moisturised, delicious skin)

Step 2: She did Malaika's base by mixing foundations from two brands, Chanel and Nars and added a tiny bit of Becca's Shimmering Skin Perfector to it for that natural glow

Step 3: For Malaika's undereye area, she used a concealer from Nars.

Step 5: To set the base, she dusted some translucent powder over it. Meghna loves the Laura Mercier, Translucent Setting Powder.

Step 6: She used the Becca Champagne Pop Highlighter to highlight Malaika's cheekbones and a tiny bit of M.A.C's Peachykeen Blush for that rosy pop of colour.
