Yami Gautam in Vicky Donor

Tell me you have seen this movie! You have, right?

Did I hear you say No?? Well, then go right away. This is one of those really good movies you shouldn't miss!

But this movie in no way is path - breaking for the way Yami Gautam does her make-up or dresses. Yes, she looks good & has good screen presence. But her makeup & clothes are very normal, very everyday. Maybe they meant it to be like that, she had to come across like a normal, girl-next-door who works at a bank. It flatters her, but it didn't make me whoop in joy - OMG! look at her lipstick!

And that is why I decided to do this breakdown. Because some of us may want to look like normal girls-next door sometimes.

1. First up is the base. Create a good canvas. But there is no contouring in this look.

2. Next up for eyeshadow, use a a pale peach pink just all over the lid. Use a light matt brown just in the crease to give it a bit of defination.

3. Define the brows really well, fill in the gaps with brown eyeshadow.

4. Next grab a black kohl, something like Lakme Asolute Kohl liner and line your eyes with a thickish line on top & lower lash line. Also apply on the waterline and smudge it a bit to create evenness & close the gaps. Apply mascara.

5. Use a peach - pink blush like Bourjois Lilas D'or in #33 on the apples of the cheek

6. For the lips, if it is daytime use a peach/pink brown lipstick like Lakme Peach Carnation or else for night time a pale beige gloss.

That's all there is to her look in the movie.

Have you seen the movie? Liked her look?
