Tell us a bit about your association with Lakme and the Absolute range that you are endorsing.
KKK: Lakme is a brand that introduced make-up products to Indian women and I am very proud to be associated with them. This endorsement is an exciting one for me, as I am totally in love with the amazing products that the Lakme Absolute make-up experts are churning out each season.
What are your must-have make-up products?
KKK: I horde lip colors, eye make-up and nail varnishes that are perfect for glamming up in style. I love products that can give me mesmerizingly dramatic eyes or bold, vibrant pouts in an instant! Eye-shadows in jewel tones are my saviours for the red carpet nights, while lip colors in hues like orange, fuchsia and red are perfect for puckering up in style. A range of metallic nail paints are my go-to for jazzing up my fingertips.
How do you define different looks for different occasions?
KKK: A busy social life means that I am expected to make a dolled-up appearance somewhere or the other every day – be it promotional events, family occasions or red carpet dos. A shimmery eye with glossy lips best compliments the ethnic finery that I dress up in for family gatherings. Promotional activities call for a light, hardly-there make-up with a pop pout and a playful hairdo. And of course, I go all bold for the red carpet with wingtip-ed eyes, a gorgeous red pucker and a contoured face to go with my elegant gowns.
Your make-up mantra?
KKK: I go minimal on make-up as I prefer a light look on the face. A bold swipe of kohl on the eyes is a must and I always carry my Lakme Eyeconic Kajal in my bag. Other than that, I go for a dab of lip gloss to spruce up my puckers and I’m sorted!
