Steal the Look: Kareena Kapoor's Makeup in Jab We Met

Roop Cafe reader Anshu asked us to do a breakdown of Kareena Kapoor's subtle makeup in Jab We Met. Have you seen this film with Kareena and Shahid (made in the pre-Kareena + Saif days)? If not, go see it! It came out a while ago but it is actually one of the better Hindi films I have seen in a while...its nothing serious, just a typical Hindi film with a cute romantic comedy storyline - great for those times you want to watch a movie where not much analysis is involved!
Anyways, the makeup breakdown is from Kareena's look in the song Nagada Nagada - I posted a YouTube video of the song below- enjoy!!

To get the look:

Eyes: Although the entire look is subtle, Kareena's eyes are the focus. First, apply a shimmery peach tone shadow such as MAC Eye Shadow in Arena all over the lid up until the crease. Be sure to choose a shimmery peach that is slightly darker than your skin tone so that the color pops out, as in the above photo.

Apply a shimmery beige shadow such as MAC Eye Shadow in Bisque that matches your skin tone from crease to the brow. Blend colors together where they meet. Apply a dark brown shadow such as MAC Eye Shadow in Tempting in the crease to contour the eyelids and blend with the peach shadow. Use a smudgy black eye pencil such as MAC Eye Khol in Smolder to line top and bottom lashlines. Also apply the black eye pencil to the lower waterline.

Cheeks: Apply a light dusting of peachy tan blush such as MAC Blush in Peachtwist to the cheeks. Light application to simply wake up your complexion is key - there is no bronzed effect here!

Lips: Line lips with a nude lip pencil to give the illusion of fuller lips. Apply a pinky nude lipstick such as MAC Lipstick in Jubilee to the lips.
