Here’s a proverbial beauty with brains! Pallavi Sharda, who started her Bollywood career playing a cameo in Karan Johar’s My Name Is Khan, is a lawyer by training and learned French at the University of Melbourne. This beautiful actress also bagged the title of ‘Miss India Australia’ in March 2010. While her latest film Besharam where she plays leading lady to Ranbir Kapoor is now in the news, she’s actually done quite a few films already including Dus Tola, Walkaway, Love Breakups Zindagi, Heroine and Save your Legs (in English).
A trained classical dancer, theatre actor and instructor in Australia, Pallavi is playing the role of Tara Sharma, Ranbir's love interest in the movie. A look at the previews reveals Pallavi's irresistible girl-next door charm. She has beautiful almond-shaped eyes, made even more attractive with soft-grey smoky makeup. The rest of her face is dainty with natural lips and soft peachy-pink cheeks. You can get the Pallavi's look very easily without burning a hole in your pocket. Nykaa shows you how:
Get Pallavi's smoky eyes
Start by applying kohl on the upper lash line and smudge it with small smudger brush. Repeat the process until you get the desired level of smokiness. For day/office/college wear I would suggest soft smoky eyes that you can rework to create a more heavily tinted look for formal evenings. Now take soft brown/grey eye shadow and apply it on the smudged kohl and lids. Blend out well. Apply kohl on water line and add lots of mascara to get voluminous lashes.
Nykaa recommends L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Le Kohl, Colorbar Smokin` Eyes Smudger Brush, L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Eyeshadow Palette - Cannes'13 Special Collection and Deborah Lash Creator Volume & Care Mascara.
A pretty pout like Pallavi's .
The trick to get Pallavi's look is to keep the lip color very natural. The best way to go would be to use a tinted lip balm after exfoliating your lips. However, if your lips are pigmented or discolored, apply a soft pink lip stain to mask the discoloration.
