We break down how to achieve Alia Bhatt’s ‘no-makeup’ look in just a few easy steps.
A solid skincare routine is required to achieve a minimalist makeup look.
After cleansing, toning and moisturising your skin, apply a blurring primer to reduce large pores and achieve a smooth and even base.
Choose a dewy or mattifying primer to give your skin a soft and smooth appearance, depending on your skin type.
The trick to flawless barely-there makeup is to use concealer and no foundation.
A concealer strategically covers up blemishes and brightens up your complexion. First, pick a concealer as per your skin type and shade.
Using a small, flat brush, apply it on your blemishes and dark spots to spot concealment.
Then apply a tiny amount of the concealer under your eyes and blend it with your fingers for a natural effect.
Lightly dust some setting powder on your T-zone and under the eyes to set everything in place.
Using blush is the most vital step of your look.
Give your skin a natural flush by adding the tiniest amount of blush to your cheeks.
If you want your minimalist makeup look to give you a sun-kissed complexion, apply a light layer of a warm-toned blush across your nose as well.
For your eyes, keep them simple and almost bare.
Apply and blend a pink or cream eyeshadow shade on your eyelids with your fingers. Next, use brown eyeliner on your waterline to define your eyes without overdoing it.
Coat your lashes with curling mascara to add volume without looking like you’re wearing false eyelashes.
Finish your eye makeup by filling in your brows and making them appear fuller with an eyebrow pencil.
The last step is colouring your lips. Keep your lip makeup soft by applying cream lipstick in a shade as close as possible to the natural colour of your lips.
After that, mist away your entire look and there you have it!
A perfect barely-there makeup look just like Alia Bhatt.
