Cop Alia Bhatt’s Minimal Look For The Festivities

I have been gearing up for the festive season with all my might by delving into the beauty archives of the leading ladies of Tinsel Town – pinning faves to my mood board. And if there is one handle that I can't get enough of, it’s Alia Bhatt’s. One of the most seasoned actors of our generation, Alia’s feed – full of novel glam avatars – is no short of a master class in beauty.

The newly minted mom who is currently riding high on the success of Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani makes a compelling case for minimal, Indian glam. Whether it’s the kohl-rimmed eyes with a glossy pucker from her latest press tour or a sleek bun adorned with flowers for Diwali – she knocks it out of the park every single time!

If you resonate with Alia’s school of minimalism in beauty, scroll further for some of my favourite beauty looks of the actress. The ‘Heart of Stone’ actress shows us how to leave a long-lasting impact with understated glam choices.

Skin Prep

I have always been curious about the LIT-from-within radiance that Alia’s skin emanates. Well, the answer lies in two words – skin prep. The actress likes her makeup to look great and starts her day by dunking her face in an ice bath.She follows it up with a result-oriented serum and a hydrating moisturiser to help create a bright, luminous base for the rest of her makeup application. Agreed, no glow stick can achieve the gleam of healthy, happy skin.

Nykaa Recommends: A good alternative for ice water facials - Nykaa Naturals Ice Roller for De-puffing and Face Toning Massage. This beauty tool helps tighten the pores, depuffs the face, and gives a natural flush to the skin, which is hard to replicate. Keep the moisture on lock- Dot & Key Barrier Repair Ceramides & Hyaluronic Hydrating Face Cream With Probiotics Infused with humectant HA, the cream binds water to the dermis, making it look soft and supple.

Sporting a Minimal Base

For the unversed, Alia’s signature look involves a minimal use of foundation for the skin. The perks of having impeccable skin, am I right? The actress went on record to state that she prefers using a tint over a high-coverage foundation for a dewy base. If you too, are a fan of this freshlook, use a medium-coverage foundation, topically and only on the aggrieved areas.

Nykaa Recommends: Maybelline New York Fit Me Fresh Tint With SPF 50 & Vitamin C - Shade 05. A hybrid offering from Maybelline – the fresh tint brightens the complexion, shields the skin from detrimental UV rays while granting it a dewy finish.

Highlighter Action For A Side Drama

I have a soft spot for Alia's glam avatars, courtesy of the Gangua Bai press tour. The actress rocked beautiful sarees, intricate hairdos, and a full face of glam that served as a big serotonin boost! In this gem (seen above), Alia flaunts a generous brushing of highlighter that emphasises her incredible bone structure– a soft glow reminiscent of the moon.

Nykaa Recommends: e.l.f. Cosmetics Halo Glow Liquid Filter. Use the Halo Glow Liquid Filter by e.l.f Cosmetics to mimic Alia’s glam look. Infused with finely milled powder, the highlighter grants the skin a romantic, soft focus look.

Monochromatic Look

A quick scroll through Alia’s Instagram feed will tell you all about the actress’ love for nude lippies. Only heart eyes for the pop of rose on her pucker, as seen in the beautiful carousel. She teams this up with a fresh burst of pink on the apples of cheek, creating a beautiful monochromatic look.

Nykaa Recommends: PIXI On The Glow Cream Blush - Fleur. This formulation infuses beautifully with the skin to give it a warm, effervescent twinge of colour. Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution - Pillow Talk. A shade that fails nobody, the revolutionary Pillow talk happens to be Alia’s favourite lipstick.

Eye Look

To add depth and definition to her gaze– Alia rocks a barely there liner look with eyelashes generously coated with mascara on most occasions. This snap from Kalank’s press junket is a rarity. Bhatt rocks a generous brushing of glittery rose gold that makes her pretty, hooded eye look brighter. A hint of sparkle atop warm tones is the perfect way to adhere to minimalism with a
