WHEN IN DOUBT, STICK TO THE BASICS
Experimenting is always fun, but when in doubt one should always stick to what suits them the best and Bebo, other than anyone else, knows this better.
When she is not experimenting, the actress opts for her comfy statement red lip and eyeliner without much drama.
NUDE GLAM ISN’T DE-GLAM
No, a nude glam isn’t a de-glammed look. In fact, it enhances your makeup game even more, right Bebo?
A no-makeup makeup look works best when you have to make your outfit the hero of your look and it won’t be wrong to say that Kareena is an undisputed queen of the nude glam game!
SMOKEY EYES MAKE A LOT OF DIFFERENCE
Smokey eyes highlight the best feature of your face and go with almost any look you have in mind. And guess who is an advocate for all things smokey eyes? KKK! If one scrolls through the diva’s IG page, they will know soon enough that smokey eyes are Kareena’s staple beauty look.
Right from her Kurbaan days, the actress made it her signature look and why not? Out of many trends that will come and go, smokey eyes will never be out of style.
OFF-DUTY KOHL LOOKS ARE A FAIL-SAFE GAME
If there is one thing Bebo won’t leave home without, it has to be her Kajal! Regardless of the event or outing, more often than not, the actor is seen flaunting her statement kohl-rimmed eyes.
And when the diva isn’t working her glam magic on red carpet events and silver screen, Bebo keeps it simple with her underlined black eyes and a simple glossy pout.
SKINCARE AND SELF PAMPERING IS A PRIORITY
Undoubtedly, Begum K is blessed with a flawless glow but the diva makes sure to keep it that way with a lot of skin pampering. The actress opts for homemade masks, sheet masks and a lot of water to keep her skin fresh as a daisy.
On her off-duty days, the actress skips heavy makeup as she believes it’s important to let your skin breathe.
CONTOURING AND HIGHLIGHTERS ARE YOUR BEST FRIEND
Contouring helps in defining your face structure and in Bebo’s case- her chiseled cheekbones and an unmatched jawline. Kareena always believes in acing the base for laying a foundation on her face.
Apart from contouring, Bebo also relies on a dash of highlighter on her cheekbones to achieve that flawless glow. Opting for a light base, bare lips and peachy-nude lips, the actress flaunts her highlighted cheeks on many occasions. This highlights one element of her face while other things work in the background in symphony.
WORK HARD, WORKOUT HARDER
Many moons ago, Bebo brought the trend of a size zero figure, and then, it never left. The actress went big on physical transformation which left everyone in awe. The brand ambassador of Puma, Kareena is big on a fitness regime and it shows. She is an avid promoter of Kickboxing, Yoga and Pilates and follows a sustainable diet.
The actress has time and again cleared the misconceptions around eating habits while one is pregnant and worked out during both her pregnancies.
Happy Birthday, Kareena. Here’s raising a toast to the P.H.A.T at 41 Poo!
