If you’re binge-watching Euphoria for make-up inspiration, you’re looking in the wrong place! Sequin liners and glitter tears may work for Instagram, but for everyday beauty, we need something more realistic. And no one has better beauty-on-the-go hacks than Tollywood celebrities! So if you’re looking for maximum results in minimal time, you need to follow these stars who are always ready for a close-up!
Here are the most efficient make-up hacks Tolly ladies and their glam squads have taught us:
A good winged eye will take you everywhere, from the airport to the pub. If you’re opting for a thick winged liner, take a cue from Raima and stick to one colour, especially if you’re on a time crunch. You’d also need some top-notch under-eye blending skills with a concealer. Ask a friend for help or carry a make-up remover pen with you.
Subhashree does her brows first, just like us! If you’re going for a defined look with a dark eye, it’s always brow>crease>lash>liner.
Subhashree aces the soft-sculpting trend like a pro. If you’re not a fan of the pointed, Kardashian-style contour, go for this natural-looking finish that adds a subtle, effortless definition.
Take a cue from Nusrat and try a peach blush this season for accentuated cheekbones and a focused highlight.
No one does a smokey eye better than Paoli. If you’re opting for metallic accents, go for the layering approach that can add a lot of definition. And always start with a mid-tone shadow, like Paoli!
Planning a retro party this weekend? Take a cue from Sauraseni and channel your inner Sharmila Tagore or Saira Banu, with a winning bouffant, a sheer saree and the winged eye. Don’t forget the pop of blush!
The smudged kohl is timeless and the quickest party make-up.
Note: Make sure to save time for a volume-boosting mascara to ace the finish.

If you’re decking up this Valentine’s Day, go the extra mile with Kaali kaali aankhen and a dark pout, like Mithila.
We can’t get enough of Koel’s smokey eyes and dewy highlighter combination. The dark beige gloss is the perfect touch!
