Actress Pooja Bhatt has made a spectacular comeback with the Netflix show Bombay Begums and we are loving her no doubt. But another aspect I dig the most is her look and many of us are talking about it as it is impactful and very Indian with that perfect attitude. So here is a low down on what all you need to pull off a look like her's but on a budget!

The first thing you notice in her look is her handloom saree in khadi fabric. The plain sarees with solid-hued blouses look uber chic and well less is always more. Get the colour of your choice as these sarees are very affordable starting price being Rs 1000 and can be bought online or in stores. If nothing else, head to the government's Khadi Gram Udyog and you shall find your paradise.
Now, next comes in her eye makeuo which begins with the perfect eyebrows. Well maintained and put together eyebrows can seriously make or break your look. So trim them, give them a shape with the brush and colour in, giving them a shape. You could buy the Maybelline New York Define & Blend brow pencil which is available in different colours. You can buy it fr Rs 349.
Pooja Bhatt looks stunning here in the heavily kohled and smokey eye makeup. To pull off a look like that, invest in a palette which is a mix of blacks, browns and nudes so that you can use the same palette for other looks as well. I recently treated myself to the e.l.f. Cosmetics The New Classics Eyeshadow Palette which costs Rs 1900 and has 18 shades to it. Once you get the palette, use the black shadow up to the crease line and blend like there is no tomorrow. Do not keep cut crease lines as that can go wrong if you are not good at handling it. Start with a light layer at first and blend in until you get the desired shade.
This is the base of Indian makeup ladies. But it is important that you invest in the right kajal pencil. Your kohl must be long lasting and waterproof but not heavy on the eyes either. I got myself this gel based and pitch black kohl which I also use as an eyeliner sometimes. The best part about it is that it is preservatives-free. I used the Plum Natur Studio All-Day-Wear Kohl Kajal - Black Brilliance which originally costs Rs 495 for a 1.2 gm pencil and comes with a free sharpener. Draw on your water line on both upper and lower eye lash line and for more drama, you can draw a thick liner on the upper lid but sticking close to the lash line. Give your eyes a shape if you want.
Here Pooja Bhatt is wearing a dark burgundy lip shade which is probably her nude lip shade but you can do your own style. Get the nude lipstick closest to your skin tone so that you look put together and outlined. I bought the Plush Crush Crème Crayon in the shade Bourbon Bree which costs Rs 699 originally.
You can buy all these products at a cheaper price if you buy them on sale and save a lot of money. These products will last you for many looks.
