Steal The Style: South Indian Actress Nayanthara's Makeup Look Decoded

I'm becoming a crazy fan of Nayanthara lately especially a bigger fan of her fashion and makeup sense :D
She is kinda becoming my spirit animal! <3
I love each and every outfit she sports in her movie roles and the way she carries herself - best attitude!
She has also improved her acting skills to an immense level :) Enough of blabbing about my crush on her (don't tell her pleashhh :P)

Coming to her makeup style, although she was a wear-anything-the-makeup-man-puts-on-your-face kinda girl in the beginning of her kollywood days she isn't that girl anymore.
Coming so long she has improvised a lot and has her own unique makeup style. Although the style isn't a unique trend but it is unique for her!
Yes she always always sports the smoky eye nude lips look :):)

A little more light on her look - yes wait wait will decode it with makeup product recos in a while, patience baby :)

Eye makeup

She puts a lot of emphasize on her eye makeup especially lashes. I have rarely seen her in movies without falsies to be frank!
She sports a thick lined black smoky eye, with some neutral eyeshadow and at times with colors too which isn't prominent due to her spidery long and thick lash illusions :)
She also never misses to thickly line her waterline too to match up with the upper lashline.
Ok now? I'm listing the products from Drugstore brands that would help in achieving Nayanthara's eye makeup look!


Lakme 9 To 5 Eye Quartet Eyeshadow in Smokey Glam has two neutral shades to utilize and get that base. You can also use the smoky shades (the greys) on the lower lashline instead of black to get a muted smokey eye!

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad To Be Bronze or On And On Bronze is a nice champagne shade which can work as a good eyeshadow base as well as double for a smooth satin-y eyeshadow too ;)
You can alos opt for any neutral palettes like Maybelline The Nudes Palette or L'Oreal La Palette Nude in Beige as they can give you many options for neutral eyeshadow looks :)

Eyeliner\Eye Pencil\Kajal

Nayanthara sports very thick and jet black liner most of the time as it brings out the glam of her eyes and it can be achieved easily with a nice and creamy gel liner.
Some options for you are Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner, L'Oreal Super Liner Gel Intenza in Profound Black or Lakme Absolute Gel Addict Eye Liner in Must Have.
If you don't feel comfortable using a gel liner on your waterline then you can opt for liner pencil like Faces Longwear one or good lasting & smoky kohls like Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate, Colorbar Just Smoky Kajal in Just Black (best part - they comes with a smudger) or one of these kajals (except the lotus one!).

Falsies & Mascara

As I said earlier she never misses her mascara or falsies in any look!
She always sports bushy lengthy eyelashes which looks super gorgeous with the smoky eye look ;)
One of the best and easily available lashes in India are Ardell and you can opt for them.
If you aren't a falsies girl then you can go for thickening & lengthening mascaras like L'Oreal Lash Architect 4D, L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara or Maybelline Magnum Barbie Macara to get those beauti-full lashes!


Simple, clean & defined!
A little brow gel must give it to you :)

Lip Makeup

She sticks to the rule and pairs up the dominant smoky eye look with the muted n*de lips look and this combo brings attraction to both eyes & lips - atleast when concerned to her :D
She loves to play with the lipstick finishes I guess as in some looks she goes for a matte lip and sometimes for a glossy one. either ways it has to be a n*ude im barely there shade!
There are innumerable options for you to pick from when it comes to n*ude lip shades so go on and explore ;)

Some of our recommendations are L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Moist Matte Lipstick Maple Mocha, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Stockholm\Cannes, MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer Tranquility, Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer Nude Eclipse and there are many shades to pick from Maybelline Colorsensational range.
Also if you don't have a glossy lipstick then you can use your regular lipstick topped off with some clear gloss :)

Face Makeup

No painting looks good without the right canvas!
Nayanthara has super clear skin and she always prefers glowing skin when it comes to face makeup.
Although she does a little contouring then and there but mostly it is perfect glossy skin for her!
So if you would like to copy her look then all you need is a good liquid highlighter or a glossy foundation to get that flawless and glowing canvas.

You have only a regular foundation with you and not ready to pick a new one? then try adding some champagne highlighter to it before applying on face.
Alternatively you can also highlight your face before applying the foundation. Once the base is done you can also add a thin layer of highlight again to get that real sheen!
A big thing to note here is that to get that flawless look, make sure you apply your concealer before the foundation or the highlight and blend well for the perfectly smooth look :)

We recommend Revlon Skinlights Highlighter or the Faces Ultime Pro Metaliglow highlighter for that amazing glow :D
