Happy weekend! Here’s a quick makeup breakdown for a very simple look: Nargis Fakhri‘s in the 2011 film Rockstar, co-starring Ranbir Kapoor. The most important part of the look is flawless skin, so be sure to apply your concealer, foundation, and powder carefully! The look is matte, not dewy, though you can use a silvery highlighter or illuminating powder (MAC Iridescent Powder in Silver Dusk) in the outer corners of the eye, under the brow, along the bridge of the nose, and/or on the tops of the cheekbones if desired.
Over the lids, sweep a matte light brown eyeshadow only slightly darker than your natural eyelid; it should look natural, so no shimmer or frost! Some options (depending on your skintone) would include MAC Eye Shadow in Wedge or Mac Eye Shadow in Omega. Apply mascara to the top lashes (without curling them). If you’d like, you can line your lower waterline with a white eye pencil to brighten your eyes.
Finish the look with a hint of cool pink blush (MAC Powder Blush in Well Dressed) and a dab of a neutral pink (with a hint of plum) lipstick (MAC Lipstick in Fast Play).

I recently had the chance to chat with Bollywood actress and American model Nargis Fakhri about her beauty secrets and tips.
Nargis, whose debut Indian film “Rockstar” co-starring Ranbir Kapoor releases later this year, had great advice to give me that is applicable to any woman looking to get gorgeous skin:
“Everything starts from the inside. Your body is your temple. Only put healthy food and positive thoughts in it!”
For radiant skin, Nargis recommends: “sleep, good food, lots of water, no soda or juice. I put lemons in my water so it has some flavor and [use a] face wash with salicylic acid. I like Neutrogena Acne Wash. I use coconut oil or olive oil to moisturize. Each person is different and I know what works for me.”
Great suggestions! The key to perfecting your skincare regimen is finding what suits your routine and your skin type. Thanks, Nargis!
