Kareena Kapoor’s Make-Up Breakdown From ‘Kurbaan’ June 26, 2016

Fresh faced, dark kohl rimmed eyes and attired in ethnic contemporary wear, Kareena kapoor stole the hearts of many in the Bollywood movie, Kurbaan .

The movie told the tale of a woman caught in the midst of a terrorist plot executed by none other than her husband. We see Kareena’s transformation from a happy and youthful newly-wed to a disturbed protagonist out to foil the terrorist plot.

The movie is circa 2009 but Kareena’s look in the movie is in vogue even today. She epitomizes an Indian beauty with her flawless complexion, nude lips and dark eye makeup. A peach blush lends her a dewy look.

Her look is casual yet sophisticated enough to catch anyone’s attention. I just love her skirts, bangles, earrings, jute bags and juttis in this movie. The entire look is ethnic and smart. The winged eye liner adds another layer of oomph to the look

Let’s look at how we can replicate Kareena Kapoor Kurban eye makeup look for ourselves this summer. The mantra is to keep the look simple and youthful.

Kareena Kapoor Eye Makeup in Kurbaan – How You Can Do by Yourselves?

  • Begin by using a good base for make-up. Prime your skin using a good primer, to keep the make-up fresh and long lasting. I suggest using MAC Pre + prime Skin Base Visage, or Inglot Primer. These are available in all makeup online and offline stores.
  • Apply a concealer to cover under eye dark circles and other blemishes on the skin. Opt for a thick brush for even coverage
  • Apply a foundation in the shade matching your skin tone. Consider L’Oreal Paris True Match foundation or Matte Morphose soufflé foundation.
  • Apply loose powder to set the foundation. Some suggestions are MAC Select Sheer Loose powder or Inglot Loose Powder.
  • Next, apply a matte eyeshadow with earthy tones. Some suggestions are MAC Soft Brown shadow, or the brown shadow from Faces Glam On Duo eye shadow-Amethyst palette. (Optionally, you may apply an eyeshadow primer before applying the eyeshadows, e.g. Nyx eyeshadow base in skin tone).
  • Line the upper lash line of your eyes. Wing the eyeliner on the outer corner for that dramatic look. Use L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Carbon Gloss, or Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting drama Gel Eyeliner to get that look.
  • Line the lower lash line using your favourite kohl. You may use Maybelline Colossal Kajal, or MAC Technakohl to line your eyes.
  • Curl your eyelashes using an eyelash curler. Try Faces Canada Eyelash curler or Vega Premium eyelash curler.
  • Apply 2 coats of your favourite volumising mascara on the curled lashes. Suggestions: Revlon Lash Fantasy Total definition Mascara and Primer – Blackest Black, or Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Mascara.
  • Next, lightly apply a peachy-brown blush onto the high point of your cheeks. Do not go overboard with the blush. Suggested shades are Deborah Hi-tech Blush shade 52 or Inglot Face Blush #23.
  • Now select your lipstick in this look, we have to keep the lips nude. First define your lips with a lipliner matching your lipcolor. Next, fill in the lips with the lipstick. Some shades you can consider are Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick-Peach Me, or MAC Faux.
