Actress Kareena Kapoor is in news these days for flaunting a ‘no make up look’ on a magazine cover. "Beauty lies in being simple and natural and this is what I believe in. This is the real me," she said. But, if you thought the actress is truly God gifted to be this beautiful naturally, think again.
HT City contacted renowned beauty experts to decode Bebo’s look on People magazine’s June cover, who said that the no make up look is, in fact, nude make up in disguise, amply helped by air brushing, used commonly by magazines across the world.
“Kareena has reddish freckles and eye bags under her eyes. The freckles and her dark circles are not visible in the picture,” noticed beauty expert Aashmeen Munjal. “There’s use of primer on her face. Freckles have been concealed using a glow foundation, while transparent foundation has been used to hide dark circles.”
“She’s used thin black eye-liner, nude eye shadow and artificial eyelashes, which is a part of make up,” says make up artist Shaan Cherian. “Her cheek bones and the hill of her nose have been highlighted,” says Shanti of Hair and Shanti. “Kareena’s look in Omkara, and Dev was ‘de-glam’, not this! This is nude make up,” said Munjal. Experts add airbrushing has also been used.
Last week, pop diva Madonna’s make up less non air-brushed pictures from a new Louis Vuitton ad created buzz online. About the before and after pictures, fashion blog Celebbitchy wrote, “The final picture in the ad makes her look 20 years younger.”
