Instagram is a great place to show your friends and fans your best beauty looks, and celebrities like Anushka Sharma, Rihanna and Ananya Panday definitely put their best face forward on the app this week, sharing photos before they walked the red carpet. At the same time, Alia Bhatt, Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Jennifer Lopez gave a much-earned shout out to their glam squad behind the scenes, sharing images of their work in progress. Here’s a look at some of the best beauty Instagrams this week from celebrities.
Anushka Sharma and Joan Smalls dial it up
It was a week of award shows across London and Mumbai—the British Fashion Awards and the the Filmfare Glamour and Style Awards respectively. Bold eye makeup, a killer highlight and experimental hairstyles were seen on both red carpets, and your favourite Bollywood and Hollywood stars turned the glamour all the way up.
For party hairstyle inspiration, look no further than Anushka Sharma’s super sculptural lob, that her hairstylist styled to look almost wet and stiff. The end result? Bold, high-fashion hair that looks polished with any outfit. Ananya Panday’s hairstyle was similar, albeit even more messy and raked-in the front, making it the cool-girl version of Sharma’s. If you’re looking for a more classic one, peep Dia Mirza’s voluminous wavy strands.
On the eye makeup front, look to Joan Smalls’ holographic eyeshadow, Alia Bhatt’s swath of pale pink, Winnie Harlow’s sharp cat eye and Malaika Arora’s bronze peepers for cues.
Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif take you behind the scenes
Your favourite Bollywood and Hollywood stars celebrated their hairstylists, makeup artists and stylists this week, shouting out the people that get their red carpet ready. “Thanks to the best team ever. Because of their kaam, I keep my calm,” said Shilpa Shetty in an Instagram post. Parineeti Chopra shared a photo of her team as well, captioning the photo: “It takes a village. Soooo much that goes on just to get that perfect moment.”
Katrina Kaif shared a photo of her glam squad at a wedding, while Alia Bhatt and Jennifer Lopez’s Instagrams showed the prep before a big event.
