Hope you all are doing well..
Today I m sooo excited and happy because todays blog post is very special. In todays blog I m gonna do something different from my regular review posts. As you all know by the title, todays blog post is all about a celebrity inspired make up look tutorial (Yayyy).
This is the first time I m writing a post on some make up look; that too a celebrity inspired. Yesterday instagarm was full of Kareena Kapoor Khan’s latest pic of an event in Delhi. Where she wore a black and white saree with her signature make up look I.e. smokey eyes paired with nude lips done by Mickey Contractor. The moment I saw her look I just decided to recreate the look as I asways always gravitate to a classic smokey eye looks, that’s my all time favourite make up look. Whenever I m in doubt I just go with smokey eyes with nude lips n I m sorted!! I couldn’t resist my self to share my recreation with you all while doing this make up look. I know it’s not the perfect and exact make up look that kareena wore but it’s an inspired make up look so please excuse me if I made some mistake. Okk !! That was a long long intro. Now enough of me talking and without wasting any more time lets get started.

First of all I start with moisturizing my face with Neutrogena oil free moisturizer. Then I directly went for my eye make up first so that fall out of a black eyeshadow doesn’t spoil our base as it is a smokey eye look.
Step 1 – I prep my eye lids by applying concealer all over my eye lids for a smooth base. For that I use colorbar make up stick as a concealer and after that I set it with my L.A Girl HD Pressed Powder to prevent creasing.
Step 2 – then I take my essence kajal pencil (black) and apply it on my eye lid roughly. Make sure to apply a kajal which is not smudge proof so that we can blend it easily and apply it as a bold eye liner. Then with a smudger brush I blended the black kajal keeping in mind not to put too much pressure or over smudge it so that the intensity of the black kajal doesn’t go off. and also we don’t wanna go over our crease line.
Step 3 – next I m gonna take a black eyeshadow and for that I used oriflame eyeshadow trio in the shade smokey black. I applied the black eyeshadow over the smudge kajal in a patting motion.
Step 4 – then I take a light brown eyeshadow from my L.A Girl Nudes Palette and apply it on my crease with a blending brush and blended it well.
Step 5 – after that I take a darker brown eyeshadow from my maybelline eyeshadow quad and applied it in between the black and the light brown eyeshadow just to give more depth to my crease and a nice transition also. I applied both dark brown and black shades on my eyes until I get the desired intensity for that look.and afterwards i started blending.
Step 6– then with a clean bending brush I blended all the shades nicely to make sure there are no harsh lines left and all the tree shades are blended well together.
Step 7– after that I repeated all the steps in my lower lash line as well. and to finish off the eye make up I applied plum kajal on my waterline and tight line and then applied maybelline lash sensational mascara on my upper and lower lashes.
After completing my eye make up I dust off the eyeshadow fallouts if I had any. Otherwise I didn’t have any fall outs from the eyeshadows. Then I started my base make up with priming my face. I used Lakme Absolute face primer. The foundation I took is my favourite Maybelline Fit Me foundation. As it is a matte finish foundation , I added a little amount of my Nykaa Skingenius foundation to make it little dewy. I use a buffing brush to apply the foundation. Then for concealer I used kiss beauty concealer contour 5 color palette. And took 2nd shade from the palette to conceal my under eyes. to fill up my eyebrows i used Sugar Arch Arrival Brow definer in the shade Jerry Brown.
After applying all the cream products I set my face with L.A Girl pressed powder in the shade creamy natural ( which is my current favorite by the way). and for contouring I used a pressed powder again from the same brand L.A Girl in the shade Toffee its a dark shade perfect for contouring for light to medium skin tones. Then here comes my favourite part which is highlightinggggg !!!! So, to highlight my face I used Makeup Revolution Pro Illuminate Highlighter I applied a good amount on the highest points of my face. ( cheekbones, bridge of the nose, cupid bows, chin ). I m not into a blusher so much. But kareena has always a pinkie glow on the apples of her cheeks so I went ahead for my Maybelline Ckeeky glow Blush and applied on apples of my cheeks as well. and to finish off the entire look I applied Miss Claire soft matte lip creme -04 on my lips first and then top it off with Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip color in the shade Seduction to make a perfect blend of pinkie brownie nude lips.
So, that concludes my Kareena Kapoor inspired smokey eye make up look. I hope u guys liked it and enjoyed the very first tutorial on my blog. Please don’t forget to share your thoughts in the comment section below. I would love to hear from you guys. Take care stay happy and beYOUtiful!!
