Apart from being Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter, Suhana Khan has blossomed into a self-aware Gen Z icon who isn’t afraid to voice her opinions and whose fan base is only growing with every passing day.
The star kid is no stranger to the limelight and media frenzy, given her parents’ stature. But, lately, she’s been turning heads with her stunning sartorial and makeup choices. The young actress has come into her own over the years despite facing unforgiving media scrutiny, rampant colourist jabs from her audience, and the fashion and beauty police judging her every choice on social media, and her resilience is impressive to say the least.
You can’t go wrong with Khan’s classic hair and makeup approach. Her go-to rosy cheeks, glossy pink lips, larger-than-life lashes and kohl-rimmed eyes is almost always framed by a soft and flattering blowout. Her signature makeup look is soft, feminine and equal parts flirty as it is non-fussy, and still makes a massive statement, which we love.
Ahead of the release of her debut film The Archies, let us take a look at six makeup lessons that we can learn from her Instagram feed.
Keep it glossy
Khan is an ardent lover of the OG ‘90s brown-girl glossy lip trend à la Hailey Bieber. Be it a natural ‘no makeup’ look or an all-out glamorous look, chances of going wrong with shinier pouts are negligible, and Khan’s makeup stands as testament to that.
Bathe in highlighter
Who is not a fan of uplifted cheekbones? The actress is not afraid to go all out when it comes to applying the product to the high points of her face including her cheekbones and nose. Get that ethereal Suhana Khan glow by finishing off your look with oodles of highlighter. After all, one is not wearing enough unless it’s visible from space, right folks?
The classic red lip
The red lip is a classic for a reason. It creates a timeless and glamorous appearance in just one swipe and is universally flattering. While Khan likes to stick to her natural, glowy makeup most of the days, she relies on the bold red lip on days when she wants to channel femme fatale energy.
A natural, flawless, ‘no-makeup’ makeup base
Want to ace the no-makeup-glowing-from-within look? Take inspiration from Jr. Khan. Her signature beauty look is all about a clean, flawless base, brushed brows and copious amounts of blush for that youthful flush. Always remember that hydration and SPF is key to achieving glowy and healthy skin. Just apply some concealer to cover your spots, throw on some cream blush, mascara, lip gloss, a hint of highlighter, and there you have it!
Khan is a pro when it comes to nose contouring. Carving her nose is definitely one of the 22-year-old’s best skills, as seen in all her Instagram photos. Like Khan, use a cream product for a naturally snatched look.
Tightlining is a technique that almost every makeup expert and beauty guru swears by, to make the eyes pop and give the illusion of bigger eyes. And the secret to achieving Khan’s flirty, kohl-rimmed eye look is exactly that. This is a technique that applies eyeliner to the waterline and the upper lash line, in the eye area where the top and bottom eyelids meet when your eyes close. Tightlining defines your eye shape and also makes the lash line appear fuller.
