“My Top Beauty Rules!”
Celebrating the launch of Toni&Guy in India, we asked the gorgeous Mrs Khan to let Cosmo in on her most trusted beauty secrets!
Cosmo: What are you doing with Toni&Guy?
Malaika Arora Khan: “Toni&Guy have finally launched in India and that's what we're celebrating through a Hair Meets Wardrobe event. It's divided into 3 different looks—Casual, Classic, and Glamour, and I'm portraying Glamour. So we've done a lot of curls and Hollywood waves for my look. The one product that has been specifically used on me is the Toni&Guy Shine Spray and I love the results.”
C: What are your favourite products from the range?
MAK: “Their Shine Spray is really good, and other than that, I really like and use the Heat Protection Mist. It actually protects your hair and has an anti-static quality as well.
Toni&Guy also has great shampoos and conditioners in their range, but I think these two products work really well on Indian hair.”
C: You’ve always had lovely hair... what’s the secret?
MAK: “Actually, there are many secrets. There’s a healthy diet pattern, genes, and regular oiling. As old as it may sound, I love to oil my hair and religiously do it twice a week.”
C: Tell us about your favourite lipstick?
MAK: “I love NARS. The Cruella and Dolce Vita are my favourite shades.”
C: And what about your current favourite fragrance?
MAK: “Tom Ford Black Orchid.”
C: Have you ever made a big beauty mistake?
MAK: “Plenty. Over the years, we’ve all had our share of beauty blunders. Going through that phase of using dark lip liner and pencil-thin eyebrows...like, what were we thinking?!”
C: What's the best beauty tip you've ever been given?
MAK: “Eat healthy and drink lots of water. Also, I think it's essential to cleanse, tone and moisturise. And SPF is absolutely essential. But if I had to choose just one ultimate beauty tip, I’d say wash and blow-dry your hair...it instantly perks you up.”
C: If we looked inside your beauty cupboard, what would we find?
MAK: “Everything! Blushers, gloss, Lip Injections (the gloss kind)! I’m obsessed with my eyebrows, so I’ll have my eyebrow kit—the Benefit Brow Zings, a toothbrush for my brows, my brow filler, eyelash curler and lip tints!”
C: Who are your beauty icons?
MAK: “Growing up, I’ve always liked Christy Turlington—I think that whole era of supermodels was just fabulous.”
