Alia Bhatt’s Instagram is proof that she is a firm believer of 'less is more'. Be it her best friend’s wedding or a red-carpet look—the pastel palette and dewy base makeup that she often relies on are appropriate for any special event. Here are some makeup lessons you can learn from Alia Bhatt, taking cues from her Instagram feed.
1. Mascara to the rescue
If you want to go for a no-makeup makeup look, these three products will be your best friends: tinted lip balm, mascara, and brow powder. Don't skimp on mascara because fluttery lashes can elevate any look. A tinted lip balm with just your mascara can do the trick—and it also happens to be Alia Bhatt’s go-to makeup look. As seen in her Instagram post, Alia enjoys having bold eyebrows, so you can achieve her signature brow look by running your brown mascara brush to comb your brows.
2. Use blush to bring out the features of your face
When it comes to looking fresh like a daisy, nobody does it better than Alia. Most of her looks are delicate and natural, thanks to her monotone choices in makeup. Simply put, stick to the same colour family for your blush, eyeshadow, and lipstick for a seamless, monochromatic look that doesn't look muddled.
3. Less is more
The Brahmāstra actor rarely goes overboard with her makeup looks, then be it while attending a promotional event or walking the red carpet. She clearly believes that less is more, which is why she likes to keep it subtle and not too loud. You can achieve Alia's no-makeup makeup look by using the product sparingly and sticking to a nude colour palette. On days when you don't need it, skip the matte-full coverage foundation in favour of hydrating BB creams or cushion foundations. Lip glosses and lip balms can also be used in place of matte lipsticks.
4. Maintain a well-defined brow
One of the key highlights of Alia’s makeup is that she keeps her brows natural. Her brows aren't particularly full, but the actor always steps out with natural-looking brows. She has thick brows with a few gaps here and there that she doesn’t go overboard filling with product—thus illustrating the importance of doing your brows in a way that best complements your face and features.
5. Allow your skin to breathe
While makeup is a lot of fun to wear, it's also important to remember that taking care of your skin is crucial. Skin that is clear and well-moisturized doesn’t far too many products to begin with. Sheet masks are a must-have in every skincare regimen, and for good reason. They contain glow-enhancing ingredients that impart a radiance that your skin deserves.
If you are someone who likes to play it safe with makeup, Alia’s natural-looking, dewy makeup tips can surely come in handy. Besides, you can always experiment with colour palettes that best suit you depending on the occasion and your mood!
