"I love a multi-purpose tool."
Bridgerton’s Charithra Chandran has revealed her effortless skincare regimen as well as her go-to makeup look for a night out.
During an appearance on Vogue’s coveted Beauty Secrets YouTube series, Charithra shared her skincare regimen, which consists of only five products, and said:
“The simpler a routine is, the more likely you are to follow it.”
Her routine included Youth To The People’s cleanser and toner, followed by Huda Beauty lifting under-eye patches, lip balm, and moisturiser.
As she applied the products, she said: “My family’s from India and generally the skincare that we use back home is all-natural.
“And also, it’ll be like the same product for many purposes. That’s kind of my main beauty secret. I love a multi-purpose tool.”
She’s also been focusing on treating her skin gently – a philosophy she learned from her makeup artists on set while filming Bridgerton.
While priming with Milk Makeup’s coveted Hydrogrip formula followed by Bobbi Brown’s foundation stick applied to the lower half of her face, Charithra says:
“I’m really starting to see that when I take care of my skin, my makeup is just so much better.”
The 25-year-old actress says she learned how to apply makeup through trial and error.
Unlike her mother’s experience hunting for the right shade match, Chandran feels grateful to have an array of options to choose from:
“Makeup isn’t about hiding things that you don’t like about your skin; it’s about enhancing what you already have.”
She continues with what she considers the most transformative part of her makeup routine: colour-correcting – a practice she also learned from her mother.
Once blended, she follows with a NARS concealer, Stila blush, Dior highlighter palette, and Kevyn Aucoin contour powder.
Her eyes are finished with a statement eyeliner duo by Dior and Urban Decay.
Chandran, who plays Edwina Sharma in Bridgerton, considers the role a challenge, yet a dream come true:
She’s been following some of the advice she got from the season one cast: “They’ve kind of said make sure you have all of your security measures, comfort blankets in place.
“In an ideal world, everyone should have access to therapy.”
Though it might be surprising given that the role has come with scrutiny, Charithra Chandran says being on the show has lessened her insecurities.
She added: “It’s mainly because I realised that if Shonda Rhimes and Netflix don’t think of my skin, my body, and my face as a hindrance, then it’s clearly not.”
