Our reader “Sarah” requested a breakdown of Kareena Kapoor‘s look in the middle of the song “Chaliya” from the 2008 Bollywood film “Tashan” (so, minus the blonde wig!). The makeup here is part sexy bombshell, part tough tomboy.
To start, sweep a bluish-gray eyeshadow (MAC Eye Shadow in Scene) over the lid. Blend upwards into the crease. Faintly line the lower lashline with this shadow as well. Apply a whitish highlighting shadow (MAC Eye Shadow in Nylon) to the inner corners of the eyes for brightness. If desired, use your favorite black eye pencil to darken the upper lashline. Curl lashes and apply mascara.
Use a dark brown eyeshadow to fill in the brows. Sweep the faintest hint of light pink blush (MAC Powder Blush in Pink Swoon) to the apples of the cheeks, and use a matte bronzing powder one shade darker than your skintone on your cheekbones to contour. Apply a mauve-pink lipstick (MAC Lipstick in Faux) to finish.
We’ve also done a makeup breakdown of Kareena’s look in “Dil Haara Re” from the same film.
