Radhika Apte is one name that needs no introduction. Not just in Bollywood, but the Phobia star has made her presence felt internationally by bagging a nomination at the recently-held International Emmy Awards. And she sizzled in a Dior ensemble on the red carpet. While Dior might be beyond our reach, we can always look forward to turn heads this party season with her make-up. We got noted make-up artist Clint Fernandes to decode it for us. Read on as you watch her in the Bengali movie Roopkotha Noy below.
Use a moisturiser to begin with and apply it all over. Follow this with an eye cream around the eyes. Gently massage from the inner corner of the eyes to the outward corner. Finally, use a good matte primer to hold in all the moisture and help with a good make-up base.
Dot the face with a light foundation and use either a beauty blender or a foundation brush and blend out. For under-eye marks or pigmentation, use a concealer to camouflage all the flaws. Follow with a contour cream under the cheek bones and the jaw line. Set the base with a translucent setting powder using a powder brush. Finish with a setting spray. Let it dry.
Do a smokey eye by applying a medium brown eye shadow on the lid up to the crease line and blend outwards. Use the same on the lower lid too and blend. Use a darker brown closer to the lash line and blend outwards. Repeat the same on the outer corner or the lower lids too. Finish with mascara.
Moisten the lips with a lip balm. Line them with a burgundy lip liner and fill in with a matte lipstick or a liquid-to-matte lip colour. Let it set and repeat if necessary for a long-lasting effect.
Cheeks and face:
On the apples of the cheeks, apply a light peach blush and blend outwards. Use a bronzer for further contouring the face. And finally use a highlighter just on the apples of the cheeks. Use an extra swipe of iridescent bronzer for a more sun-kissed and tanned look like Radhika. Finish with the setting spray again and let the entire look set in place.
