What do you love about Indian skin?
BB: Asian women have beautiful full lips with a natural pink undertone. Deep reds tend to look great on Indian women.

Your favourite summer look is….
BB: Summer is hands down my favourite time of the year! Go for a rosy glow – think fresh face with flushed cheeks and ripe lips. Enhance your eyes with a shimmering neutral shadow and black mascara. Add colour to cheeks and lips with sheer tones of pink and rose. Choose a powder blush because it can stand up to summer humidity.

What’s a quick make-up fix?
BB: Concealer is my ‘desert island’ cosmetic—I never leave home without it. Concealer helps minimise dark under-eye circles, instantly and dramatically improving the way you look. Be sure to use a yellow-toned one that’s one or two shades lighter than your foundation.

What does it take to be a Bobbi Brown face?
BB: I admire women who create their own rules, so I was naturally drawn to Kate Upton because she’s a maverick who has carved her own path to success. Kate is proud of her healthy body and has a beautiful face for make-up. She is a real woman. She loves life and that is ‘Pretty Powerful’.
