I was browsing the internet, waiting to be struck by a metaphorical lightning bolt to jolt me into writing something groundbreaking, when I found interviews with desi celebs on their make-up habits. Now keep in mind they still don't seem to like divulging exact shade information, but at least it's a push in the right direction.
I am very particular about my skin and trust only Mac as it suits my skin. I also like Clarins moisturisers as they are very light.
I am very particular about my makeup as we practically live in it for long hours when we are shooting. I only use MAC and Bobbi Brown as these suit my skin and they are in tune with the international trends in makeup.

For skin care I depend entirely on Clarins as it suits my skin and works wonderfully. I use moisturiser, sunscreen, cleanser and beauty flush balm that hydrates my skin. For makeup, I use Mac shimmer powder and foundation. It acts as a great base for Indian skin. Christian Dior lipsticks and lip gloss are just amazing. For a change I use eye shadows and blushers from Bobbi Brown.
Unless my films require I use very light make-up. For skin care, I use products from Clinique as they are not perfumed, lip balm and light brown eye pencil from MAC, Lakme kajal and Christian Dior make-up. When I was 16, my mom gifted me Christain Dior's Diorissimo, since then I mostly use this perfume. Perfumes from Schnell and Tresor by Lancome are also among my favourites. The fragrance can be described as light and floral with a tinge of sweetness.
Make-up is another big domain I shop for. I like Christian Dior foundation and nail polish, Mac eye shadows and lip glosses. I also use Nina Ricci lip gloss and Revlon nail polish. I don't use Indian products as I am not too sure of their quality.
Blush-on, mascara and mocca lipstick from Mac and chapstick from Molten Brown is what I dig for. 212 Sexy by Carolina Herrera, Cheery by Christian Dior and True Star by Tommy Hilfiger are among my favourite brands in fragrance.
I use products from Mac, Stella, Estee Lauder and Nars. I don't stick to one brand. If a colour suits my skin tone I may even go for a new brand. Before I go to bed, I use Johnson's baby oil to get rid of the makeup on my face and then dab it with a hot towel.
I am not very fond of make-up. But if I use I am very particular about the brands. I draw on mascara by Estee Lauder, kajal by Revlon and fruity lipgloss and cheek tint from MAC. They suit my skin tone and are very soft on sensitive skin.
I use only Mac products as they have quality products. My makeup man uses them and maybe I am used to the look and feel. Red Earth is another brand I like for its colours.
For my stage shows and shoots the brands I stick to for cosmetics are Derma, Krylol, Mac and Bobby Brown. I usually shop at Beautiful in Khar or from make-up artists Bharat and
