Danqing and I watched the 2008 Bollywood film “Jodhaa Akbar” recently, starring the outrageously perfect Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik Roshan. Ash’s makeup in the film is extremely minimal, and lets her natural beauty shine through.
If this a look you want to go for, start by applying a minimal amount of foundation and concealer, only as necessary. If you use a cream or liquid foundation, I highly recommend using the MAC 187 Duo Fibre brush with the stippling technique to apply; see YouTube for videos on this technique. Using the 187 allows you to apply very little makeup very effectively, to give you that airbrushed look.
After this, choose an eyelid-colored eyeshadow (neutral brown) or skip eyeshadow altogether if desired. Line the upper lashline with black gel eyeliner (MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack). Apply mascara. Finish the look with MAC Lipstick in See Sheer, a “grapefruit pink” lipstick with a hint of shine.
