To channel a bold face it’s no longer essential to apply loud unnatural hues to your skin. As Payal Pratap & Anand Kabra showed us , in their Spring / Summer 2013 show at Wills India Fashion Week – a bold face is only a brow away.
Strong eyebrows are making a beauty statement among many International celebrities as well as catching up with our very own Bollywood stars.

The look on Payal’s show had an impeccable balance of softness with nearly nude lips and eyes and the strength due to arched thick brows. This is a great everyday look – wear with minimal but stark silhouettes. Or sport it with an embellished or printed ethnic ensemble with your hair up in a bun or tied back to give maximum attention to the face.

Follow these simple steps to attain the look.
Step 1. For any look the very first step remains cleanse, tone and moisturize.

Step 4. Start with the eyes. Apply a fleshy eye color over the eye lids to brighten them up.

Lips and Cheeks
Step 9. Less is more here hence lightly blush your cheeks to avoid looking pale. Nothing more.
Step 10. Choose a suitable shade of natural pink or peach to apply on the lips. Moisturize before applying the color or you can exfoliate them too for that way they appear softer and more pink.
For this look getting the base makeup right is as important as the brows. Concealer first or foundation first confuses many women and the truth is both the methods are right – it depends from skin to skin.
- If you do not wish to wear a foundation layer all over, use concealer to correct first and them apply foundation to blend in the obvious corrections. The downside it concealer tends to move when foundation is applied over it.
- Wear foundation first if there are less blemishes, and use concealer only to fill in a few spots. The downside is it is difficult to blend the concealer afterwards.
Find the best way for applying makeup base for yourself, and then sport this new-age bold look with elan and define a new standard of beauty.
