Decoding:The key to mastering this look is to simply go easy on the makeup. Remember the look channels cherubic beauty, so highlight the apples of your cheeks, while you can go easy on the eyes playing them up with mascara and kohl. The lips call for a plump pink pout while the rest of the face is fresh and as natural as possible. Pair this look with your swankiest silk blouse and diamond drops, and you’re ready to be the prettiest girl next door!Viral Bhayani
For the Face:Prep your face with a face wash that removes blackheads, clears pores and leaves you with squeaky, clean skin. The next step is foundation but use a really light formulation that gives you just the coverage you need without looking too cakey or thick. It has to look as natural as possible. Nail the rosy cheeks by applying a cream blush on the apples of your cheeks. When applying the blush, smile broadly and the portion that lifts up on your cheeks is where you need to focus the maximum amount of blush.

For the Eyes:Apply a layer of baby pink eye shadow and highlight the top of your brows with a highlighter to create the perfect arch. Line your lower lids with a thin layer of kohl to give it some definition. Draw a thick line on your upper lids and smudge the middle and corners for a touch of sultry. Finish this off with a single coat of mascara and you’re all set to flaunt your girl-next-door peepers.

For the Lips:Alia’s pout is delectable to say the least. After a thorough scrub, apply a pink lipstick as a base and top it off with a pink lip gloss. Give the centre of your lips some extra love as it adds a delicious plumping effect.

Her movie may be hitting theatres this Friday but new girl on the block, Alia Bhatt has been on our fashion radar for a couple of weeks now. Heating up the red carpet in tiny dresses, red lips and designer clutches, this barely twenty-year-old girl has some major style game.
