What Are Ira Dubey’s Beauty Must-Haves?

Text by Aparrna Gupta

The theatre and film actress, known for her exuberant performances, shares her beauty secrets

Signature style
Freshly scrubbed skin, with just sunscreen, lip tint and mascara.

Morning fix
I start my day with Cetaphil Cleanser and Clarins Multi-Active Day Cream, followed by the Bioderma Photoderm Spot SPF 50+ sunscreen.

Red-carpet secrets
Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara, YSL Terre Saharienne Bronzing Powder and Dior Diorific 013 Rouge Bingo are my go-to products.

Night companion
I rely on Clarins Multi-Active Night Youth Recovery Cream to rejuvenate my skin while I sleep.

Fond memories
Olay Cream and Dior Poison take me back to my mother’s dressing table.

Must-haves
On my dresser are my day and night perfumes, Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle and Jean Paul Gaultier Classique. Besides these, you will always find Bobbi Brown eyeshadows, a M.A.C concealer, the Clinique Superbalanced liquid foundation, Johnson’s baby oil, Clarins moisturiser, L’Occitane body cream and Kérastase Elixir serum.

Treasured keepsake
A 150-year-old Fragonard perfume that my father bought for me, six years ago, from Eze, a village in France. I have still saved it!

Glam fetish
Mascara! The trick is to find the right one. Whether you apply light or heavy make-up on the eyes, mascara transforms them and makes them pop.

Mum’s advice
Always eat fruits and curd for great skin and hair. Cleanse your face before you sleep, use almond oil once a week for your hair, and let your nails breathe.

Make-up disaster
I would use metallic purple eyeshadow as a teenager.

Beauty wisdom
Highlight your cheekbones with powder and then use a cream blusher on the apples of your cheeks.
