Get The Look: Kareena’s Smokey Eye & Radiant Glow

By  | 

There’s no doubting that Kareena Kapoor Khan’s amazing glow is all credit to her beautiful baby (yes, new mommy glow is a thing)…smiles and all! This mommy is definitely not letting anything hold her back. Recently seen walking the ramp for her favourite designer, Anita Dongre, at Lakmé Fashion Week, Kareena WAS pretty much the finale to the 5-day fashion extravaganza. Even post childbirth, her style has been totally on point.

Recently spotted in an earthy green Chola casual ensemble at the Rangoon screening, Bebo brought back her classic ‘Kareena’ look — kohl’d and subtle smokey eyes, a little colour on the cheeks, and a subtle, fresh glow on the rest of her face. Remember her bold eyes in Kurbaan? Something similar, but a smokier version of it. We got a quick breakdown on the look from Bebo’s makeup artist, Swarnalekha Gupta, and here’s how you can achieve that smokey look too — product to product.



Set your base with a primer — prepping is absolutely essential to begin with. It seals in those pores, giving you a flawless effect. Next, apply a foundation that is moisturising and gives you a fresh glow. Fresh and flawless is the perfect way to keep the base of this look.

Hauterfly recommends:

M.A.C. Strobe Cream (Rs 2,700)


Bobbi Brown Moisture Rich Foundation (Rs 4,300)



The entire look is eye-focused. Use a deep brown eye pencil to shade your smokey eye in. Line the waterline with a kohl pencil, making sure the pigment is slightly thick and visible. Smudge your liner with a gel liner to create a bold and defined effect. Create a fuller lash effect with mascara and your eyes are ready to charm. Finish off with a brow gel by filling in those gaps.

Hauterfly recommends:

M.A.C. Eye Kohl in Teddy (Rs 1,400)


Lakmé Absolute Kohl Ultimate (Rs 580)


M.A.C. Pro Longwear Fluidline in Blitz & Glitz (Rs 1,400)


Benefit They’re Real Mascara (Rs 2,150)*
*Available at Sephora stores across India


Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel (Rs 1,539 approx)


Blush up the look with a subtle tone of peachish pink, and make sure to give a slight contour to pop your cheekbones and sculpt them out a little.

Hauterfly recommends:

Bobbi Brown Blush (Rs 2,850)


Anastasia Beverly Proseries Hills Contour Kit (Rs 2,746 approx)



Use a pink tone nude lip colour to fill in your lips. On Kareena, Swarnalekha has used lip colours of different shades of pink from Huda Beauty to get this perfect hue — it balances out her bold eyes.

Hauterfly recommends:

M.A.C. Lip Pencil in Spice (Rs 1,450)


Huda Beauty Liquid Matte in Trendsetter (Rs 1,808 approx)*
*Available only on Huda Beauty
