When one hears the phrase- “Royal begum”, the one name that we instantly associate is that of, none other than, Kareena Kapoor Khan. She looks ravishing and mind blindingly beautiful when she decides to unleash the “begum” in her.
We decided to draw some inspiration from catty Kareena to design a “begum look”.
Here are the ground rules/ tips to nail the “begum” look:
1. FLAWLESS SKIN:
Not everyone is blessed like Kareena when it comes to matters of skin. Therefore it is advised to use the concealer abundantly in order to camouflage any imperfections. This will result in porcelain skin which looks healthy and radiant.
2. BOLD EYES AND BROWS:
Taking cue from Kareena, it isn’t difficult to conclude that one has to use eyeliner and kohl in optimal quantity to achieve big and bold eyes. Also, you can use an eyebrow pencil to fill in the gaps in your brows.
F&B 707’s Quick tip: Wear coloured lenses to maximize the impact as begums, generally, have gorgeous eyes. I’m wearing the colour Hazel from Bausch&Lomb.
3. VOLUMINOUS, SIDE SWEPT HAIR:
You can blow dry your hair to add more volume, movement and bounce to your hair. It’ll add an envious shine to your tresses. Also, the best way to style it is to keep it losely side swept on one side.
4. GET IT RIGHT WITH WHITE:
Since times immemorial, the aristocrats and the affluent have worn white to reaffirm their status, class and charm. Therefore, a long, floor length kurti in white was chosen. Also, make note of the full sleeves, which uplift your style quotient by more than a few notches.
Lastly and most importantly, it is essential to carry yourself with poise and unparalleled flair. Also, have you ever seen a classy begum, slouching?! So put in effort to keep your posture erect AT ALL TIMES by keeping your back and knees straight.
