Beauty looks inspired by powerful women

Women in positions of power and prominence have always attracted a fan base trying to emulate their style.

Experts have decoded three beauty looks sported by Oprah Winfrey, Priyanka Chopra and Michelle Obama ahead of International Women’s Day.

Beauty has had a huge influence on women, boosting their confidence and letting them express themselves creatively. In the spirit of celebrating women, Sushma Khan, National Creative Director, Make-up, Lakme Salon and TIGI Educator, Audrey D’Souza, have decoded the looks of the three celebrities who have excelled in their individual spaces.

Oprah Winfrey:


* Apply an air brush HD foundation and contour the face to sharpen your features

* Colour correct flaws and stress points

* Opt for a beige lip liner and fill it in with a copper lip colour

* Accentuate the eyes with a black liner and glue individual lashes at the outer corner of the lash line to achieve natural curls. Apply a thin line of kohl on the lower eyelid and blend it with reddish dark brown shadow to smoke up the eyes a bit

* Define the brows with a dark brown brow shadow matching to the hair colour, apply brow gel to set the colour and add definition

* Finish it with a mascara


* Cleanse your mane with a recovery shampoo and conditioner which removes pollutants, sweat and any build up to reveal super reflective shine

* Gently apply a dollop of smoothening cream on wet hair to smoothen and soften the mane

* Use a blow dryer attached with a diffuser on medium heat to dry the hair

* Apply a coin sized amount of shine mousse for that brilliant shine and glossy hair

* Spray a hard holding spray to achieve a long-lasting style

Priyanka Chopra


* To get smooth, even coverage and a flawlessly complete look, use air brush HD foundation and concealer.

* In case your hair texture is fine, use some amount of texturising mousse to make sure the hair doesn’t weigh down

* Part the hair to an extreme left or right depending on how comfortable you are with the sectioning

* Tie your hair in a low pony tail using an elastic band

* Finish by using a hairspray for a texturised matte finish

Michelle Obama


* To get the morning-fresh face, use strobing to apply the base and primer

* Conceal the problem areas and subtly define your best features

* Use a nude eyeshadow which matches your skin tone and spread it all over the eyelids

* Contour the eye area and opt for a black liner. Curl the lashes and use a voluminous mascara to add drama to the eyes

* Fill in the brows with an eye brow pencil matching your hair colour

* Keep the cheeks matte and go for a pale rose colour blush

* For the lips, choose a baby pink lip gloss


* Cleanse and condition your mane with a high-shine shampoo and conditioner
