Anushka Sharma is currently on a spree of promotions with Varun Dhawan. Known for her clean, fuss-free makeup aesthetic, the actor has opted for just that to be part of her promotional beauty looks as well. We spotted Sharma in a mattemakeup look at an event recently, with doe-like lashes and smooth, pinned-back hair—a look that’s easy to recreate and wear on a daily basis. She was styled by Allia Al Rufai in an Atsu outfit, while Daniel Bauer worked on her makeup and hairstyle. Here’s a complete breakdown of how you can recreate Sharma’s beauty look.
Get the look
ICYMI, using the right skincare products is absolutely essential for a flawless makeup finish—these are the ones Bollywood’s best makeup artists swear by. Not a fan of emollient creams? For Sharma’s look, prep your skin with the Clinique Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly, which will sink right in and leave your skin feeling plump. Then, pick a mattifying foundation like the Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Pore Minimizing Makeup—it’ll give you matte finish and control excess oil production for eight hours. Comb your eyebrow hair and move on to your eye makeup. While your lower lash line could do with a thin stroke of kohl, go over your upper lash line with a liquid liner like the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner and extend it outwards for a thin wing.
The real winner here are the lashes—eye-opening without the need for falsies. To achieve this look, get your hands on a volumising mascara like the MyGlamm 3D Tubing Mascara, an eyelash curler and this video tutorial by Hollywood celebrity makeup artist Georgie Eisdell. After curling your lashes for one eye, shut your eye and start to apply mascara by wiggling the wand at the base of lashes and then move outwards. Continue doing this to all your lashes, and you’re sure to see a dramatic difference in volume once you’re done. Repeat this for the other eye, dab a soft pink tint on the apples of your cheeks and wear a creamy brown colour like the Kiko Milano Gossamer Emotion Creamy Lipstick in Vintage Rose on your lips to finish.
