Bollywood Inspired Glam

Apply falsies for added drama

From Deepika Padukone to Priyanka Chopra, the classic Bollywood diva look is a seductive smokey eye paired with sexy nude lips.

DESIblitz teams up with KC Makeup to create the perfect Bollywood inspired glam look just for you!

Here’s how you can achieve this timeless look!

1. Ace the Base

Take your preferred foundation and smooth it out completely before applying your contour. Blend, blend, blend!

Add concealer to any blemishes and highlight for added depth and dimension on your cheekbones.

Contour/Highlight/Blush trio in Bamboo/Mocha/Trippin’; Beautyblender; Artis brushes; Makeup Forever Ultra HD Powder; Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette

2. Eyes that Smize

Groom and pencil your eyebrows using fine strokes and highlight your brows with the same highlighter you used on your face.

And now for the shadows! Blend out a soft shimmery colour all over your lid, pack in the colour with your ring finger if you feel like adding more of the shadow.

Using your finger adds an added layer of shadow, which you can blend out using a brush.

Add a dark taupe to the “outer V” (the edge of your eyes) for depth and for warmth add a pumpkin, orange colour shadow on top.

Create a winged liner but don’t add a bottom liner so that the focus stays on the top!

Always check your shadow once you’re done with your liner, you may want to add more shimmer or more definition! Apply falsies for added drama.

3. Sultry Pout

Use a sultry soft shade to create the perfect pout-keep it matte for a classic Bollywood bombshell look, or switch it up with a gloss on top.

Clean up the edges with your preferred concealer as you go, and you’re done!
