Believe it or not, I (and most people too) go through phases of makeup looks. Last year I was obsessed with smokin‘ my eyeshadow, so much so that it became my signature look whether I attended an event or went to a party. And because I’m quite vested into Alia Bhatt‘s life (aside from the fact that most people think I look like her), I’ve been spotting a kind of recurring beauty look she’s been wearing for movie premieres, book launches and so on. Scroll down to see a few of them…
A flawless, dewy base, blushed cheeks, nude lids and a hint of shimmer and glimmer at the higher points of her face—The perfect day-time and casual night-time look, IMHO. Now, if you’re as in love with it as I am, here are a couple of products you’ll need to recreate this look:
A cream foundation stick that can double up as a concealer is one of the best investments you can make. Since Alia‘s look is all about a natural base, using this instead of liquid foundation is ideal.
For the eyes, Alia kept it nude but peachy… You can choose a nude or light brown for your crease and then either go in with a matte pink or a shimmery one (depending on the time of day) and apply it to the rest of your lids.
*Pro Tip: To give your lower lashes the illusion of having eyeliner on, take the same nude shadow and with a small blending brush apply it to the lash line.
If you zoom in and look closely, Alia’s lashes are long but not too clumpy. That’s because she used a volumising mascara that lengthened her lashes but not thickened them.
Just like the base, using a cream blush will give your look a dewier and natural flush rather a defined application that one would get using a powder. The great part about cream blushes is that you can blend it out easily, to a point where it melts into your skin.
Keeping up with the monotone and nude look, Alia’s lips were all gloss with hints of shine. You could also use lip balm for this one.
