While our social feeds may be chock-full of intense graphic eyeliner looks (dramatic wings, colourful floating liner, you name it), Janhvi Kapoor is here to remind us of the undeniable charm of a simple kohl-rimmed eye. For this look, created by makeup artist Riviera Lynn, Kapoor paired her smouldering eyes with a flawless base and a soft nude lip. You could also switch the lip colour to a more vibrant hue and add a thin layer of gloss over the eyelids (just make sure your kohl pencil is waterproof), if you want to up the ante. Ready to try the look on yourself? Follow these steps.

Get the look: Janhvi Kapoor’s kohl-rimmed eyes and nude lipsBegin by applying a moisturiser all over your face and a mattifying primer along your T-zone. Next, buff a radiant-finish foundation like the NARS Sheer Glow foundation on the face with a wet sponge until you have an even base. Dot and blend concealer on any areas that need a little more coverage.With a flat shader brush, press a light terracotta-toned eyeshadow all over the lids and with a crease brush, lightly blend the colour into the eye sockets. Tightline the eyes with a dark, smudgeable kohl pencil like the Charlotte Tilbury Rock 'N' Kohl in Bedroom Black, running the colour from the inner corners of the waterline, all the way to the outer corners. Then, colour along your top and bottom lash lines, too. With a small pencil brush, softly smear and blend the kohl for a more lived-in effect.Use an eyelash curler to lift the lashes and then add two coats of a mascara like the Nykaa Lash Talk Curl Power Curling Mascara. Fill any gaps in your brows and define their shape with a brow pencil like the NYX Professional Makeup Micro Brow Pencil in a shade that suits you. Then, use the spoolie end of the pencil to comb the brow hairs in place.Set your makeup with a light dusting on translucent powder on a big, fluffy brush. To add warmth to the face, skim a warm-toned bronzer like the Wet n Wild Color Icon Bronzer in What Shady Beaches along the hairline, cheekbones and jawline. You could also use a hint of it to blend along the eye sockets so that all the shades on the face look seamless. Pop a coral blush on the apples of your cheeks and a champagne highlighting powder on the high points of your face.Apply a creamy matte lipstick in a nude shade like the asa Hydra-Matte Lipstick in Playful Peach all over your lips. Blot and repeat.To finish the look, spritz your face with an illuminating setting mist like the Morphe Luminous Setting Spray to add a hint of dewiness and keep your makeup looking fresh for hours.Also read:
