Steal the Look: Kareena Kapoor's Makeup at Amrita's Arora's Wedding Reception

Is it terrible that I'm doing a post on Kareena Kapoor's makeup look at Amrita Arora's own wedding reception?? I'd have to say its Kareena's fault for looking like a bride herself at her good friend's wedding. Isn't Kareena's lengha stunning? Typically one to stick to a simple makeup look, Kareena went for a dark green eyeliner to complement the subtle green tones in her outfit.

To get the look:

Apply a champagne shadow such as MAC Shadestick in Shimmersand all over the lids and blend up towards brows.
Line eyes with a dark green eye pencil such as Christian Dior Crayon Eyeliner in Precious Green or L'Oreal Pure Pigment Shadow Stick in Mesmerizing (I prefer the Dior pencil as the latter is not as dark) from inner corner to outer corner of eyes, top and bottom. The line should be fairly thick like Kareena's but make it proportionate to your eye shape and size. Also, make sure edges are not too harsh by blending with a sponge tip.
Line the lower waterline with a black eye pencil such as MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder.
Finish with a generous coat of black mascara.
Lightly apply a candy pink blush such as MAC Blush in Dollymix to apples of the cheeks.
Apply a rose pink lipstick such as MAC Lipstick in Sweetie to lips. Finish with a candy pink lip gloss such as MAC Cremesheen Glass in Melt In Your Mouth.

This is also a great look for those desi ladies searching for a way to add color to their makeup when they attend desi weddings without going over the top.

  3. Thanks, desipolitan! I feel like I need to start doing my makeup a little darker than usual though for the camera because the flash washes a lot of the color out! Thanks for stopping by!
