Following the steps mentioned below will help you:
Grooming plays an important role in differentiating between an average girl and a star. The Bollywood Divas are always scrubbed and polished from head to toe. They are also mani- and pedicured, and coiffed to perfection DAILY. Getting a squeaking clean and moisturized look only on occasions is not their mantra.
Here’s what you should do:
1. Get Rid of the Hair
Use a depilatory cream for the cheeks, chin, and sideburns. Use tweezers to pluck your eyebrows and upper lip. Strictly avoid threading (unsanitary) and waxing (pulls skin) as there is always a risk of ingrown hairs. Remove the hair from bikini area using Brazilian wax or an epilator. Also get rid of your body hair by waxing the entire body.
This is an important step. You should scrub away the dead skin cells from your skin. It will help you reveal smooth, healthy skin from underneath. Chemical exfoliation is good for your skin. You can do it via using a lemon juice and honey face mask every week. This will make your skin look fair and bright by removing tans. For body, use sugar/salt/powder scrubs. These are easily available on the market. If you wish to go for a cost effective technique, go for dry brush scrub your entire body before stepping into the shower. This should be done once or twice a week. You can apply lemon to lighten dark skin patches around the elbows and knees. This will have a bleaching effect.
Maintaining proper hygiene is a must. Shower every day, use a deodorant, and wash your hair every other day. Strictly avoid going to bed at night without washing off makeup. Brush your teeth twice a day with a whitening toothpaste and floss in the evening. Use whitening strips once or twice a year for teeth stains.
A star will always sport smooth silky complexion. So moisturize your face twice a day, morning and night. Use a sunblock/sunscreen (SPF) in your skin care regimen. Use baby oil gel or cocoa butter lotion. Also use a hand cream to keep your hands soft.
5. Don’t Forget your Nails
Go for a French manicure to get an elegant, versatile and feminine look.
6. Pamper Yourself
All celebrities and socialites indulge in regular facials and massages. These are important to revive the body and relax the mind. Regular massage stimulating blood circulation to the skin and adds a youthful glow. Go for facials every month.

Now use black gel eyeliner and line your lower waterline and lower lashline. With MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder, line the upper lashline. Apply false eyelashes and curl lashes. Apply mascara.
