As per Mickey Contractor who has worked with Bollywood actresses like Alia Bhat, Priyanka Chopra, and Kareena Kapoor, while buying makeup, the biggest mistake made by Indian women is buying foundation lighter than their actual skin color.

2. To look awake and alert, use base makeup
Makeup artist Shaan Muttathil knows about makeup for Indian women as he has worked with Jaqueline Fernandez and Chitrangada Singh. He suggests using a little dab of base makeup inside the waterline of your eye if you want to make them look more wide and open.
3. Smoky eyes
Donald Simrock, the makeup artist of Madonna, Shraddha Kapoor, and Priyanka Chopra suggests in order to a seamless, blended smokey eye, make an outline of your eye with liquid or gel bronzer.
In any makeup routine, moisturizer is the very first step. And Priyanka Chopra’s former makeup artist Uday Shirali agrees with it. He emphasizes on using a good moisturizing foundation.
