Kajal Agarwal, who is best known for her blockbuster movies as well as winning smile has also been the face of a whole lot of commercials, endorsing products that she believes in.
The actress, shared her beauty secrets with City Express. “The pollution in big metros like Bengaluru, Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad and Chennai has a massive influence on how fast one can age. In our line of work, which is so demanding with its routine as well as exposure to lights and makeup, using a beauty product is like a prevention rather than cure. Earlier, I used to think that ageing was just about wrinkles, but now I know that dullness and dryness of the skin are all signs of age,” she says.
A model-turned-actress, Kajal believes that it takes constant striving to look your most beautiful. However she disagrees that glamour is essential to scorch the silver screen. “I am the queen of de-glam roles and started my career by doing such roles. However a simple style doesn’t mean that you have to look bad. De-glam doesn’t mean that you are without make-up entirely. You need some eyeliner, mascara and gloss to brighten up your face. Otherwise one looks dead, pale and yellow. A de-glam look also does not mean wearing ugly clothes. You can look lovely by wearing good cotton kurtas,” she explains.
Kajal, who is admired for her natural beauty, is usually complimented for her expressive eyes. And when it comes to her signature style, she is into classics. The actress admits, “I don’t follow trends blindly. I like to keep it fashionable and trendy, but at the same time I like the vintage look because I feel it is romantic.”
