Banita Sandhu’s skincare and makeup routine is surprisingly low-key
If you need productivity goals, look up to Banita Sandhu. This year she starred in Shoojit Sircar’s October opposite Varun Dhawan, learned a new language (she couldn’t speak Hindi before this film), and worked toward a degree in English Literature from King’s College, London. It’s been a stressful year, by her own admission, but meditation, yoga, a killer workout track and a steadfast CC cream helped keep the stress off her face.
“My mum taught me that less is more; makeup is meant to enhance your natural features, not hide them. I do remember learning most of my tricks—like baking and fibre lashes—from YouTube tutorials as well.”
“I love a ’60s cat-eye and overlined lips, the kind worn by Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Twiggy.”
“Cardi B’s ‘Bodak Yellow’, every time! In fact, anything from Cardi B or Rihanna.”
“To be honest, I’m kind of over selfies. I love a fake candid instead!”
“I don’t touch them! I’ll occasionally pluck them if they’re getting out of control.”
From start to finish
“I go through a bottle of Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream SPF 15 every other week. I use it instead of foundation because it’s lighter on the skin.”
“I bought a Panasonic Facial Steamer recently and it has changed my life. Not only does it deeply moisturise my skin, it also cleans out my pores.”
“Since I was 16, I’ve religiously worn Roberto Cavalli’s Signature Eau De Parfum. It’s one scent I’ll always get complimented on.”
