With the minimalist 'no-makeup' look dominating the beauty space at the moment, Ashima Kapoor—whose roster of celebrity clients include Kiara Advani, Huma Qureshi, and Kriti Sanon—shares a 7-step tutorial to achieve an au naturel appeal.
Step 1: Opt For a Tinted Moisturiser
Instead of applying foundation, use a tinted moisturiser to make the skin look sheer and dewy, and not too cakey or jarring.

Step 2: Pick a Neutral Eyeshadow
After prepping your skin and creating a base for products to blend well, opt for a neutral shade of eyeshadow and do a swipe across your lids. Saffron by M.A.C is a great choice that best suits Indian skin tones. Alternatively, you could pick an eyeshadow in a similar shade, from a brand of your choice.

Step 3: Add Dimension to Your Eyes
To give your eyes an edgy, dramatic touch, apply a kohl pencil in your waterline. Make sure to go subtle and avoid the kohl from looking too stark.

Step 4: Luscious, Voluminous Lashes
To give your lashes a lengthening effect, make use of a voluminising mascara. Double-coat your eyelashes with the mascara to add more dimension.
