Wearing a pop-print shirt and wide leg pants (by Lakme Fashion Week finale designer Namrata Joshipura), multi-coloured Pop Tint nails, poker straight hair and flawless skin, the gorgeous Kareena Kapoor Khan spoke to Team MissMalini exclusively about makeup, fitness, idolizing her grandmother and what her fans mean to her.
Watch our interaction with her here:
Team MissMalini: What are the trends in makeup for Summer / Resort 2013?
Kareena Kapoor Khan (KKK): Well, for this season it’s more about pop colours. So whether it is bright pink or bright coral on your lips, it would look nice. Not so much bright red. But I would go for deep coral or deep pink for my lips. As for nail colours, the bright hues from Lakme Pop Tints are very ‘IN’ for the season. It has lots of blues and greens and a whole lot of funky colours that young girls love to wear.
TMM: How do you protect your skin from the harshness of film make-up?
KKK: I’ve been wearing film makeup since forever. But when I’m not shooting, I don’t use makeup. I don’t like using makeup too much. But it’s important that I drink lots of liquid. Howver, I don’t moisturize my skin too much and that’s why it’s not so great. Drinking lots of water and not putting on too much of foundation and being more natural when I’m at home is what I usually practice to take care of my skin.
TMM: Did you ever raid your mother’s makeup box as a child?
KKK: I definitely raided my grandmother’s box. She is my mother’s mother and she is British. But the best thing is that she used to drape and wear her own sarees. And ever since I was five or six years old, I used to watch my granny drape and wear her sarees and get ready to go to the Cricket Club of India. She would wear bright lipsticks and bouffant her hair and I used to just sit and look at her with much fascination and awe.
TMM: Have you ever taken makeup and fashion tips from your older sister, Karishma Kapoor?
KKK: Well, yes. Karishma takes a pretty keen interest in what I wear and what I do. She’s quite a style icon which I think is great. She’s pretty much into minimal makeup and minimal colours.
TMM: Please share some of your own makeup tips with our MissMalini readers..
KKK: I can’t do without a kajal pencil. Probably the only thing I always use is kohl to highlight my eyes whenever I go out. The Lakme kajal pencil is what I swear by.
TMM: What is your fitness routine to maintain your figure?
KKK: I am a vegetarian and I prefer vegetarian food. And I also practice a lot of yoga.
TMM: Any message for your fans?
KKK: I think that whatever I am is because of all the love from my fans who have been so loyal to me and I don’t know how to repay it. But, I love all you guys and thank you so much for everything.
