“Anamika [Khanna] wanted a very sporty-Indian look,” says make-up expert Ambika Pillai. “She wanted hair to look as if someone has just come back from the gym, tied it carelessly into a knot, and left half of open.”

For the bindis: “I’ve used lip balm as the base, and used talcum powder on top, and defined it with a cotton bud.”

For the eyes: “The eyebrows are thick and dark. For the eyes, we’ve used kajal – lots of it – and smoked it out gently with a dome-shaped brush to soften the look.”

For the lips: “We’ve gone with pink-ish nude lips.”

Watch how it came together:
