Actress Athiya Shetty believes Indian women are blessed with beautiful almond-shaped eyes which get enhanced with kohl.

“It’s a good thing that women in India enhance their eyes. They have almond-shaped eyes... big, brown and pretty eyes. Kohl is the first make-up product that I started using,” Athiya said.

The other eye make-up product that she swears by is the lash volumising mascara. “When I am not shooting, I go minimalistic because I think it’s important to let the skin breathe as well. So, I just use a tinted lip balm. I also like to wear mascara. It just brightens up your eyes,” said the ‘Hero’ actress.

She also likes to keep her hair simple. “My grandmother sits me down even today on a Sunday and puts coconut oil on my hair. So that’s my hair secret. I don’t need a spa or anything,” she said. But she likes to experiment with make-up at times.

“I am new in the field so experimenting is good. I let the make-up artist take charge, but yes I do have a say. For instance, I never used to do dark lips. But now, I am experimenting a lot with different dark shades of lip colours,” she said.
