So, the second segment of this series belongs to the doll like beauty that is Diya Mirza.
Diya is known for her simplistic approach to fashion and makeup. Although she is simple, she always impresses and stands out. Simplicity really is the best way to get attention for Diya Mirza.
She is an all out girly girl and can often be seen sporting floaty dresses, floral prints and pretty jewellery. Diyas makeup is also fresh and feminine, just like her.
Diya has gorgeous skin, she almost emits radiance from within. Her face never looks dull, always bright and fresh.
Diya has also mastered the "no makeup" look pretty well. To me, it looks like Diya uses a tinted moisturiser [Laura Mercier, Estee Lauder do great ones] which evens out her skin yet lets it glow. A light dusting of powder on the t-zone will help eliminate excess shine.
The key to Diyas makeup, is that her eyes are hardly ever made up. I have never seen Diya sporting false lashes or heavy eyes. The following two pictures show that Diya doesnt use a heavy eye pencil either. A brown would be sufficient to make Diyas eyes pop.
She is one of the lucky few who looks good with minimal makeup. Her features can overpower her face if they are "decorated" heavily.
Diya can also do the glam look very well. She never goes overboard and manages to capture her innocence and natural beauty throughout.
To make the looks more night-time appropriate, Diya just adds more kohl and a light wash of eyeshadow. Her lips are usually glossy, hardly matte. A good pigmented lipgloss can do the work of a lipstick and a lipgloss in one.
Diyas beauty mantra:
"I like to keep it simple. I use a light coverage of M.A.C Studio Fix foundation. I enhance my eyes with Bobbi Brown eyeliner, curl the lashes and then brush on mascara. I add a little shimmer from Make Up For Ever to highlight the cheekbones and finish with gloss from Bobbi Brown.
Unlike other actresses, I can’t use thick Kryolan panstick; instead I use a liquid base and translucent powder from M.A.C Pro"
One thing that Diya loves to incorporate into her makeup is a blusher. She is usually seen sporting a nice flush on her cheeks. Because Diya is quite pale, the blusher will make her look much more alive, and create some warmth in her face. Pretty pinks and peaches look fab on her skintone.
Simplicity is key, work with your natural beauty. A coat of mascara, a sweep of blusher and a nice lipgloss will do wonders to your face
