Rumoured to be newly engaged, to a Jonas brother no less, here's a beauty look from Priyanka Chopra we're here for

It's no secret that Priyanka Chopra is a fan of darker lip shades like rich rubies and oxbloods. What we truly admire is her ability to make each of her deeper toned lipstick look effortless, when they can sometime look too dramatic or fussy when worn by other women. Perhaps it's her natural glamour or breathtaking beauty. This makeup look was done by Sarah Tanno, who also does Lady Gaga's makeup on the regular. Tanno may not have revealed what we all wanted to know — the shade of her lipstick. But here are some great substitutes for pulling off the look. 



1. Perfectly-matched foundation
Priyanka Chopra's skin tone might be 'unusual' in Hollywood, but it's pretty common in this part of the world. With more makeup brands catering than ever to a wide variety of shades, it's easier to find a match to your skin colour and undertone. Marc Jacobs Beauty new foundation comes in 29 shades, is designed to be worn with the makeup brush for the best finish, and can build from a light to medium coverage.

2. Serious brow wow
Don't you just love when brows look thick and natural without looking flat and one dimensional. Chopra is blessed with full brows, but if you don't have that natural fullness, fake it with a volumising brow tint.

3. Hint of flush
For this look, blush is not the centrepiece, but blends seamlessly into her skin to tie together the sparkle on her eyes and the rich tones of her lippie. Go for a creamy stick or pot blusher that melts into skin — just blend with your finger or a brush — and pick a deeper, berry or rose shade to complement the look.

4. Metallic purple lipstick
We''ll never know the exact shade of lipstick since Tanno who is a Marc Jacobs Beauty ambassador — has not revealed it, but we've found a close match. Choose a lipstick in a raspberry or magenta with rich pigment and a metallic finish, and apply it imprecisely — pat in on with your fingers — for a more modern finish.
