Steal the Look: Bipasha Basu's Makeup at Filmfare Magazine Issue Launch

At the launch of the latest Filmfare magazine issue, Bipasha excelled at pulling off a natural makeup look while still looking sophisticated. Her eyes were accentuated with ultra long lashes and her skin glowed in golds.

To get the look:

Eyes: Apply a golden peach shimmery shadow such as Bobbi Brown Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow in Seashell all over the eyelids from lashline until eyebrow. Line both the top and bottom lashline with a dark brown shadow such as Revlon Matte Shadow in Rich Sable. Wet the liner brush slightly to make it easier to apply. Bipasha clearly has false lashes on so opt for a strip of false lashes or a super lengthening mascara such Maybelline Colossal Volume Mascara in Glam Black, which I recently reviewed.

Cheeks: Achieving glowy cheeks like Bipasha's is simple. Simply pop a tawny pink blush such as Bobbi Brown Blush in Tawny on the apples and brush towards to the temples. Then pop a highlighter blush such as NARS Highlighting Blush in Albatross on the cheekbones and blend.

Lips: Apply a apricot pink lip gloss to the lips. Chanel Aqualumiere Lip Gloss in Candy Glow matches Bipasha's lip color perfectly.

  1. Bipasha's new hair do is absolutely adorable on her..and I agree her make up at the FilmFare Launch is perfectly gorgeous & natural.

    PS - You're really good at this matching make up to what the celebs have on, just an interest for make up or do you have make up experience (professional make up artist, etc)?

  2. Hi Archana!

    I love Bipasha's hair too...I almost like her bob better with a little curl than stick straight. It looks really cute on her!

    Thanks for the compliment...I'm not a professional makeup artist although I love making up myself and my friends. I'm able to tell colors basically from a love of makeup and spending countless hours at the makeup counters of department stores inspecting all the products!!

  3. Then you've definitely got an eye for make up. :) I love, love, lovee eye make up, that's probably my main addiction. But lately I've been dabbling into more lip stuff, and I was looking at an older post you had of Bips, and she has this stunning orangey-red lipstick - - beaauutiful. I want it! Hehe. I'm going on a hunt for it.

    I've also been noticing more about celeb make-up cause I do digital illustrations on my blog, and you have to get real up close and personal to the pictures to make it look realistic. Anyway, I'll definitely be stopping by your blog more often. :) Who knows, if I really like a certain look I might try and digitalize that particular picture! Heh.
