Recreate Kareena Kapoor-Khan’s Signature Makeup Look That Has A Special Fanbase

Kareena Kapoor

The reason I’m an extremely confident woman who always struts around like the world is her runway is because I grew up watching Poo throw sass around like confetti. Kareena Kapoor-Khan‘s portrayal of Poo was much more than just a portrayal of a fashion-first character for a young girl like me. I wanted to be just like her when I grew up, and I’d like to believe that I did, to an extent. Apart from this widely adored character, she’s also given us the quirky Geet in Jab We Met and the iconic Kaurwaki from Asoka. The list of her versatile roles just goes on.

As someone who enjoys recreating makeup looks sported by her favourite celebrities, I’ve always stalked Kareena endlessly on Instagram and bookmarked her daring red lips or quintessential smouldering eye looks. However, the actress’s signature makeup look with statement eyes and nude lips is what we’ve always admired. While there’s nothing she can’t do, she always makes a case for the classics.

If you’re looking for a way to recreate Kareena Kapoor-Khan’s signature makeup look, we’ve got you covered.

The Brows

Feathered and bushy brows may have been everywhere but Bebo proves that there’s nothing better than perfectly tamed brows. Instead of brow powders, opt for a brow pomade like Benefit Cosmetics’ POWmade Brow Pomade. Pomades feature a pigmented formula that ensure your brows are looking sharp at all times. Use an angled brush for precise application of the pomade. However, to achieve brows like Kareena’s, use pomade from the middle to the end of your brows and choose an eyebrow pencil like e.l.f. Cosmetics’ Instant Lift Brow Pencil to fill in the starting points of your brows.

The Base

Hailey Bieber may have popularised glazed donut skin but our Bebo has been sporting it for as long as we can remember! While her radiant skin should be receiving credit for this, one can always achieve it with the help of a trusted few products. Use an illuminating primer like the NARS Radiance Primer which has soft, pearlescent particles that reflect light, giving you the most ethereal glow before you go in with your base. Instead of foundation, choose a skin tint that offers you buildable, medium coverage. Fenty Beauty’s Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint will give your skin a blurred and glowing finish like Bebo’s.

The Eyes

The star of the entire show—Kareena’s sultry eyes have always been the talk of the town. The signature kohl paired with a smokey eye has always been her weapon of choice when it comes to making a statement. Huda Beauty’s Empowered Eyeshadow Palette is the ultimate smokey eye companion since the colour story is perfect for it. Use an intense black kohl like Lancôme’s Crayon Khôl Eye Kohl Pencil in Noir on your waterline and if you’re looking to amp up things, use the same kohl to tightline your eyes.

The Cheeks

We’ve all tried to overdo it with our contours trying to make our cheekbones pop like Bebo’s. To ace that definition on the cheeks, choose a warm-toned blush like Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Stick Blush in Peach Caramel and drape it along your cheeks for a lifted look. Use a contour stick to sculpt your cheekbones for a sharper look. Opt for Rare Beauty’s Warm Wishes Effortless Bronzer Stick and apply it by swiping upwards on your cheekbones for added warmth and definition.

The Lips

She loves her nude lips, and so do we! It’s always wise to pair a smokey eye with a subtle nude lip which balances out the entire look. However, not all of us can pull off a nude lip like Bebo, so darker lip liners are our best friends. Go in with Lakme’s Perfect Definition Lip Liner in Rosewood Forest and instead of lining the entire outline of your lips, just line your cupid’s bow, the edges of your lips and a little bit of your bottom lip. This will ensure that the darker hue doesn’t overshadow the nude lipstick. Use your finger or a brush to diffuse the liner for it to blend with your lips. Opt for the Estee Lauder x Sabyasachi Limited Edition Lipstick in Muslin Tea, a unique nude hue.
