Happy weekend! We had a makeup breakdown request for Asin‘s look in the 2012 film “Housefull 2”, co-starring Akshay Kumar, among others. This look is great for spring, as it’s very light and emphasizes pink and peach tones, both of which look gorgeous on Indian skin.
To begin, apply a light coverage foundation and concealer where needed. Line the lower lashline (lightly) with a black or brown eyeliner (do not line the inner corners of the eyes). Sweep a pinky-coral eyeshadow (MAC Eye Shadow in Sushi Flower) over the lids and into the crease. Line the upper lashline with a black eyepencil, smudging into the lashes. Finish your eye makeup by curling the lashes and applying a highlighter under the arches of the brow (if desired).
Sweep a coral-peach blush (MAC Powder Blush in Melba) over your cheekbones. Blend a highlighter/illuminator onto your cheeks for a fresh, dewy glow. Finish the look with a peachy yellow-brown lipstick (MAC Lipstick in Mocha).

For Indian film actress Asin, this is no beauty secret: she loves to talk about her passion for coconut water. Asin drinks coconut water to keep her skin hydrated and fresh– necessary for looking young and radiant.
Coconut water is a pure gift from nature, with amazing antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. It is even used by medical physicians as an intravenous fluid when saline isn’t around!
Coconut water’s naturally occurring electrolytes are genius for rehydrating the body, as they encourage your cells to absorb water. When your body is dehydrated, your skin becomes dry, wrinkled, and dull. Coconut water prevents this by better allowing your body to deliver nutrients to your cells, leading to hydrated, plump skin cells.
Coconut water contains a wealth of healthy minerals, including potassium, calcium, and iron. Its electrolyte content makes coconut water a popular, natural alternative to sugary sports drinks after a hard morning’s exercise.
Use coconut water to keep yourself hydrated and your skin looking dewy and soft!
Fun fact: Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor drinks coconut water regularly to hydrate and to maintain her weight loss program; drinking fluids throughout the day can help you feel fuller and make you less likely to reach for snacks.
