A makeup breakdown for Bipasha Basu ( a popular Bollywood actress) was requested by lovely reader - Josie. I generally don't do makeup breakdowns unless I really love the look / I think it can be easily executed in real life. And this is one such look. She has been doing a lot of peach/tangerine/apricot/ terracotta lately and cant say I have any complaints. It looks gorgeous on her as it will on anybody else !

Lets see...

Eyes : very well defined brows , false lashes, brown/ black eye liner smudged around the upper and lower lash line. Probably a champagne shade washed all over the lid.

Lipstick - There are two ways to achieve that kinda lip color. Either go for a rose brown shade and top it off with a peach li gloss. My recommendation Smashbox - Exquisite - a gorgeous rose brown with Julie Hewett Lip Lush gloss in Chloe a pretty tangerine / peach.

Or go for a terracotta shade and top it off with clear gloss. My recommendation for this would be the Estee Lauder Signature Lip Color in Terracotta.

Cheeks - A matte peachy blush like Smashbox Reign Fushion Blush for medium skintones. For deeper skin tones I'd go for deeper terracotta/ apricot shade like Almay Powder Blush - Spice. If you don't mind a little shimmer try NYX terracotta (gorgeous!)

If you catch any other celebrities with super awesome makeup, do send over a pipc. I'll try my best to do a makeup breakdown !

A great drugstore blush for this look would be "sunset beach" from milani ... I think its the perfect shade for Indian skin tones.

Wow!! Bipasha Basu is sooo pretty. Good job Josie requesting the info on what makeup she uses. I prefer peach colors as well, really makes your skin rosy, and sun-kissed, and kissable for sure.

Great photo, great Cat-eyes she has too! :)

Hi Husha !

I thought it was the contacts. Something about it for me is off. And the eyebrows are over done - I feel. Its like they used a black pencil ...

Her face looks lighter than the neck and shoulders, but the lip color and the blush are so subtle and fresh looking and she looks gorgeous nevertheless!!

Yeah...shez always guilty of that light face, more natural everywhere else thingy. I;ve been noticing it only the past year or so. Before that I always thought she had good even thing going on...anyhoo the peachy tones are crazy good !
