• From Katrina to Jacqueline, beauty looks you want to steal right now

    by Salva Mubarak

    On the list of things that cheer us up on a Monday, celebrity beauty experiments are definitely at the top (followed by thug cats and cake frosting videos). Which is exactly we got from the Lux Golden Awards, where stars from Katrina Kaif to Anushka Sharma pulled out easy glam looks that we are adding to our arsenal for the upcoming party season.

    While nobody took any major risks (let's leave that to Kangana Ranaut, shall we), Jacqueline Fernandez's messy, textured braid took us back to the time when we were obsessed with all things Frozen. Malaika Arora Khan made a strong case for the "I just spent October in Bali" look, while Aditi Rao Hydari went all out romantic with flushed cheeks and a pink pout.

    Deepika Padukone stuck to her trademark — straight, centre-parted hair with dramatic eyes. 

    Flip through the gallery for all the best beauty looks you can steal this season.

  • Take cue from Katrina Kaif and avoid looking like a Christmas ornament. Katrina strikes a balance between her high wattage gown and make-up by sticking to an understated palette with side-swept hair.

  • Deepika Padukone rocked her tried-and-tested hair — sleek and parted down the middle — adding a bold red lip and smokey eyes to the mix. But her metallic nail paint was the hero of the look, looking futuristic enough to get our inner geek cheering.

  • Anushka Sharma is still taking pointers (we imagine) from her Ae Dil Hai Mushkil character, if those boho chic half-braided waves are anything to go by. Bonus points to her for softening the grunge-y vibe with diamond danglers.

  • Jacqueline’s messy Elsa-esque braid is giving us #BraidGoals to end all #BraidGoals. She kept the look from going full Disney by keeping her make-up minimal.

  • If we tried this undone bun at home, we'd end up looking like we were dragged through bushes. Clearly, Aditi does not have the same problem. Note how she uses white eyeliner (you can also use a highlighter) to make her eyes pop, keeping the rest of her make-up dewy fresh with the bright pink lips adding a spot of colour.

  • Malaika Arora Khan never fails to surprise us with her red carpet choices, and this one is no different. Redefining the term 'age appropriate' with rockstar waves and bronze skin, she's managed to look as if she has just spent the day (or a month) holidaying at the beach.

  • Ileana opted for a riotous Aiisha Ramadan number. Staying in sync, she added a coral lip and subtle emphasis on the eyes.

    TAGS:

  • Taapsee Pannu’s faux bob and classic red lips were reminiscent of Hollywood icon Grace Kelly. While this could have veered towards cutesy side, Taapsee eschewed statement jewellery in favour of small studs in her ears and a simple hair ornament.

  • Once you manage to tear your eyes away from Tamannaah's cheekbones, take note of her blown-out lob (long bob, for you beauty amateurs) and pale pink lips. Inspiration to go crazy with the highlighter while strobing and score cheekbones that can cut through glass.

  • Surveen Chawala's Hollywood inspired choice reminds us of Jessica Rabbit. Her dramatic eyes and retro waves make the case for going all out with make-up if your dress is classic and understated.
