Your beauty regime?
My beauty regime is simple. To begin with, I ensure I keep myself hydrated all the time. I always eat the right food and remove my make-up before going to bed, followed by a moisturiser to keep my skin nourished.
Your beauty secret?
None of us do it often enough, but hydration, cleansing and moisturising are key. Being in the Bollywood industry, makes these three things even more essential, and I feel this should be on the tip of everyone's beauty regime.
What kind of makeup you prefer?
My makeup usually depends a lot on my schedule, but otherwise I prefer a light and dewy makeup for a casual look.

One makeup without which you can't step out of your house?
I cannot step out without the Bobbi Brown Crushed Liquid Lip because its multi-use and adds just the perfect colour to my lips and cheeks.

It's hard to choose just one, as I am such a makeup junkie, but if I really must, lipsticks for sure! Always helps in getting that fresh look, especially post late-night pack-ups and tiring shoot day.
What do you do to detox your skin after putting on makeup for longer hours?

Three makeup hacks you swear by?
Okay. Let's go! So first would be using Crushed Liquid Lip on the apple of my cheeks to get just the right flushed look on my lips for the perfect pout!
Then, second would be after putting highlighting powder on the brush, spray Bobbi Brown's Primer Plus Hydrating 3-in-1 setting spray to get a nice glossy finish.
And third, lightly brush Bobbi Brown's Sheer Finish Pressed Powder on top of your foundation if you want to retain the natural glow of your skin.
