I have always wondered how our Bollywood celebs always manage to look hot and awesome, with or without make up. Their skin is always glowing, they have the prefect make-up on, their tresses are neat and shiny and the envious part of all is you will hardly find a blemish or pimple on their face. How, how, how??? I’m sure, i’m not alone. We all just love knowing what are our stars make-up and skincare favorites? Well here’s a compilation of their beauty must-haves.
Lets begin with the former Miss World & the super gorgeous Aishwarya Rai. She is an epitome of natural beauty. It is heard that the actress is a big fan of natural and organic ingredients. Apparently, cucumber helps her get rid of any skin problems, gram flour is what she uses to cleanse her face and milk & yogurt keeps her skin moisturized. Every morning, Aish makes it a point to drink warm water with honey and lemon, to flush out toxins from her body. Smoking, alcohol, and highly-processed foods are a big NO to the actress.
Her everyday make up look includes peach, pink, or tan eye shadow, black eyeliner, and mascara for her eyes, warm pink or peach blush on the apples of her cheeks and shade of pinky-brown or peachy-brown lipstick. Her favorite brands are MAC, Lakme, Revlon and Maybelline. Among fragrances, Aishwarya wears Happy by Clinique and Eternity by Calvin Klein.
Kareena Kapoor: Bebo is naturally blessed with a glowing and radiant skin, all credit to her genes. Kareena is vegetarian and her diet includes loads of fresh fruits and vegetables. She once said in an interview, “I believe that ‘you are what you eat’ which is why I don’t eat meat. Your stomach is not a grave yard. I gave up meat five years ago and I can feel the difference. My skin is glowing and I drink ten glasses of water every day.” Lancome face wash is a must-have in her hand bag.
“Cherish” MAC lipstick and “Improper Copper” MAC blush are two of her favorites. She loves Chanel Kohl pencils in black and apparently cannot live without it. Lorac Eyeshadow in moonstone, Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Lipstick, and Chanel Quadra Eyeshadow are her other favorite beauty products. Among fragrances, Bebo is a big fan of Jean Paul Gaultier, but for special occasions, she wears Un Jardin en Mediterranee by Hermes.
Katrina Kaif: Who doesn’t adore this barbie doll? Her skin is always glowing and flawless. Like most celebs, she too follows the simple formula of eating right, exercise and basic skin care routine. The beauty starts her day with 4 glasses of water on empty stomach. She concentrates mainly on her diet. In her own words “I do try to eat right; I mean eating the right foods, in right quantities, at the right time”. Kats applys Purified Apricot Oil to moisturize her skin. She also takes Acai berry supplements and wheat grass powder daily to keep her skin glowing from inside. Mene & Moy face wash is a must have in her handbag.
Her favorite brands and products include, Bobbi Brown Nude Eye Shadow Palette, Guerlain Le 2 De Guerlain Mascara in Black, Stila Lip Glaze in Apricot, Clinique Blushwear Stick in Peachy Blush, YSL Perfect Touch Radiant Brush Foundation in Sand and Dior Rouge Replenishing Lipcolor in Diorama. Her favorite perfume is Gucci Rush.
Sonam Kapoor: This fashionista has an impeccable skin. It is heard that Sonam uses cucumber pulp on her face. Just like Aishwarya Rai, Sonam too begins her mornings with warm water, honey and lemon. All through the day, the beauty sips on either coconut water, buttermilk, or cucumber juice. Ms Kapoor never steps out of her home without a sunscreen of SPF30, be it rain or shine. The actress loves to lavish herself with the highest-quality expensive skincare and luxury fragrance products. Her purse always carries a Neutrogena sunscreen, a MAC lip balm, La Mer’s Creme de la Mer face cream, Chanel and MAC cheek tints, and vitamins.
In an interview with Filmfare, Sonam professed she has the “biggest collection of perfumes ever”, including Silver Rain by La Prairie, Daisy by Marc Jacobs, and Michael Kors by Michael Kors.
Priyanka Chopra: The oh-so-gorgeous Priyanka Chopra swears by the CTM method: cleanse-tone-moisturize. The actress regularly takes multi-vitamins and drinks plenty of water to keep her skin hydrated. She avoids heavy meals, and hogs on baked, steamed and stewed food stuff. She loves raw veggies and sprouts. Says Priyanka, “I firmly believe that if you eat right, you feel right.” The actress exercises at least four times a week.
Her favorite makeup products are M.A.C. Teddy eye liner, a bronzy brown eye kohl, Bobbi Brown concealer and M.A.C. NC43 powder. Her favorite blush is Nars Orgasm. She uses a lip liner by M.A.C. Spice and a Laura Mercier lip stain in Mulberry. Armani Eyes to Kill mascara is a must.
Priyanka loves perfumes and most often wears Ralph Lauren Romance, Dolce & Gabbana The One, Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin, and Jo Malone Vintage Gardenia.
