Yes! Dewy faced is the new celeb trend! We can’t deny there’s something heart-warming about seeing famous, normally dolled up lovelies sans makeup. No cosmetics, flattering studio lights and airbrush tricks, just au natural, unabashed beauty. Rare is the Bollywood beauty who doesn’t mind being caught without a swipe of grease paint. But it’s a brave new world in Bollywood and going natural is the new in. Let’s take a look at the freshest faced divas of Bollywood who aren’t scared of facing the cameras—on screen and off it—with nothing more than a smile to light up their face!
2 States, Veera Tripathi and Highway
No matter how many memes taking a dig at her IQ might be doing the rounds, this petite, pretty young thing is a pro at moulding herself in the character she’s portraying. Her minimal makeup look fitted the part of her IIM grad act like a glove, and we totally loved those softy rosy cheeks, kohled eyes and natural lips. Just the look to sport to college or work. If you’re still not convinced, feast your eyes on this talented beauty facing the cameras without an ounce of makeup in the critically acclaimed Highway.
Jab We Met
Who can forget the chatty and witty Geet Dhillon in Jab We Met? Along with the movie, and of course the drool worthy Aditya Kashyap (Shahid Kapoor), what we loved most was Kareena’s untouched porcelain beauty. Her natural complexion and blush was emphasised, with barely there lip and eye makeup. Clear, bare skin, with flushed cheeks and rosy lips, can it get any better?
Her snow white complexion notwithstanding, this Boroline loving diva rocked the Bong Beauty persona with her kohled eyes and bare face. We loved the way she carried the simple looks in sync with the theme of the movie, and made a strong mark on the fashion and beauty front though Ayushmaan Khurana dominated this male themed movie.
Hasee Toh Phasee
Parineeti won our hearts as the adorable Meeta Solanki as an “off the hook” geek. We loved the simple “barely there” makeup she sported; just a light base to blur imperfections, nude gloss and light kohl complementing her IIT grad-cum-mad scientist character beautifully.
Oh how we loved Angie! Her offbeat, bohemian sartorial style, muted makeup and dreamy expression stole our hearts. If there’s one diva who can romance the camera with minimal makeup and an ethereal expression, it’s Deepika.
And then there are others who dare to bare even when the cameras aren’t whirring. All of us can learn a thing or two from these bare faced beauties. A large part of Sonakshi’s charm lies in her flawless skin and twinkling eyes. And now that Shot Gun’s favorite girl has embraced the bob, we can’t get enough of her carefree, sparkling smile and bare faced charm.
Like Alia, this newbie is also blessed with clear skin and a beautiful smile. She doesn’t shy away from the paparazzi, always willing to flash her million watt beam even if she doesn’t have a shred of makeup on her pretty face.
Karisma and Kareena Kapoor
Nothing can beat the flawless, almost transparent, aura of the two Kapoor sisters. Both girls are blessed with a peaches-and-cream complexion and light eyes that look simply stunning, with—and especially without—makeup. Without doubt they’re the original dewy faced femme fatales.
This talented former Miss World exemplifies the rosy blush we all covet and so rarely attain! Even in her 40s Ash can give many women—decades younger—a run for their money with her gorgeous skin and iridescent beauty that shines even brighter when it’s not slathered under layers of grease paint.
Malaika Arora Khan
The voluptuous Malaika is a rare exception who doesn’t rush to powder her nose at the first sight of shutterbugs. This hottie always looks well turned out and immaculate with a bod to die for. She swears by her skin care routine, and boy, has it paid off!
