Slowly, we're moving back to our lives of stepping out, going to the market, or getting some home chores done here and there (while obviously wearing a mask and constantly sanitising). For me, I've opened my makeup vanity after five months to get in the mood to experiment with my fave lipsticks. While on most days I venture out only to my living room, I still put on some makeup now and then to pump up myself for the day- if I do end up going for something essential, well and good, otherwise I bombard my followers on Instagram with one too many selfies.
A diva who is making the most of the sunshine from the safety and comfort of her home is Bipasha Basu. She just posted a few selfies where she looks like a glowing goddess. Beaming and beautiful, this Bollywood star sure knows how to brighten up our mornings with makeup and an infectious smile.
Apart from her makeup, we're looking at her gorgeous hair- loosely curled and messy. Her light brown balayage is standing out and shining bright in the sunlight. If you too want to nail this lockdown look, we've got a step by step guide for you.
Prepping your skin for makeup is extremely important when you're looking for a smooth canvas to start with. Use a hydrating sheet mask, massage all the goodness into your skin with a face roller, and use a moisturiser well-suited to your skin type. Don't forget to apply sunscreen (yes, even indoors) and let's get started!
Your base sets the tone for your makeup so this step is crucial. Prime your skin with a hydrating or mattifying primer depending on your skin type and then use a foundation or a BB cream and blend blend blend. You can use a damp beauty sponge for even application. You can then dust loose powder to lock the cream products in place.
Eyebrows shape your face so pay attention to them. Use a powder or a pencil and brush them out with a spoolie. You can even set them in place with a brow gel and you've got runway ready brows!
Bipasha hasn't done much of an eye look here, possibly to keep it subtle and understated. You can dap concealer on your lids and dust on some neutral eyeshadow to make it look even. Finish it off with loads and loads of mascara!
To complete the look use some lip and cheek tint to add vibrance to your face. You can always go in with lipstick if you think the pigment isn't enough but for the flushed, daytime look a tint works the best.
All set to channel your inner Bips!?
