3 Celebrity Makeup Looks with Hair Waves


In today’s Indian Celebrity Inspired makeup post I have listed makeup looks inspired by Bollywood ladies walking the ramp at India Couture Week 2015. The couture shows had an equal dose of glamorous makeup and celebrities. All three makeup looks are different from each other yet based on wavy hairstyles. At the end of the individual tutorials I have linked the wavy hair tutorial, you could also check my previous post here on various other methods of achieving hair waves.

Aishwarya Rai for Manish Malhotra


The focus of this makeup look was on the eyes- burgundy rust smokey eyes. The stark eye was paired with soft glossy nude lips and strong contoured cheekbones. Akriti Sachdev’s video is an indepth step-by-step guide for the makeup look, with a slight difference in colours.

Lip colour: MAC’s Mehr or Rimmel Apocalips in Nude Eclipse


Aditi Rao for Debarun


The makeup at Debarun’s show was demure with a doe eyed look and strong lips. Also noticeable were the thick filled in eyebrows. Desi Perkins’s video even though not exact gives us a a very close resemblance to Aditi’s makeup look- soft gold eyes, non-flicked eyeliner and sharply drawn lips.

Lip colour: Lakme 9 to 5 Crease-less in Brick Lead


Shilpa Shetty for Rimple & Harpreet Narula


This was a classic black smokey eye with dark lips. Sharp contouring and sharp eyebrows completed the look. Lisa Eldridge’s tutorial covers the smokey eye in details and slight variations in the rest of the look. But it is easy to follow and you can easily adapt the steps to suit your needs.

You could achieve wavy hair in various ways and style it differently too. For Aishwarya Rai’s look the large waves have been combed to form a whole bunch. For Aditi Rao’s look the hair has been parted on the right and accessories used along with the waves. In Shilpa Shetty’s hairstyle extra volume has been added to the crown with back combing for an added oopmh. Once you achieve the basic curls style it the way you want.
