Make-up artists Natasha Nischol and Virginia Holmes are the creative team behind fat mu, which was featured in the Make-up Around the World segment of Issue 78 of Make-Up Artist magazine. Visit the fat mu blog at http://www.fatmu.blogspot.com/.
Nischol then dusted Screenface Translucent Powder (loose) lightly all over to set the make-up, concentrating on the t-zone so that the glow from the face was still visible.
Screenface Blushing Gel in Barely Rouge—Nischol concentrated most of it on the apples of Pinto’s cheeks to create a very natural flush.
Nischol wanted to achieve an artistic effect, without overloading too much eye shadow. First she applied a wash of taupe eye shadow from the Screenface Eyeshadows Palette in Neutral over the entire eyelid to create a base. Then, over that she applied a wash of M.A.C. Eye Shadow in Woodwinked (a warm antique gold shade), again over the entire lid, concentrating on the center for a pop of color and brightness to bring a sparkle to Pinto’s eyes. Nischol then used a medium brown from the palette to contour the eyelid crease and on the outer corner of the eye for a bit of a lift and definition.
Nischol created a natural look, while still adding color, moisture and shine, by using Bobbi Brown Lip Tint SPF 15 in Maple Tint (available on the U.K. Web site).
Highlights / Countour
To complete the look, Nischol used Shiseido Accentuating Color Stick in Glistening Flush (S3) on the top of Pinto's cheekbones and brow bone to bring the whole look together and light up her face.

Member Comments for Freida Pinto as Latika in Slumdog Millionaire

THANK YOU so much for posting this breakdown! I only recently saw Slumdog Millionaire. I know, I\\\'m behind, and I was delighted to see this detailed listing. The film exceeded my expectations and definitely lived up to all the hype. Freida Pinto looked stunning. Gorgeous. I'm seriously thinking I now need to purchase the Bobbi Brown lip tint in Maple from the U.K.
Yes! I'm so glad this was posted! I'm sure Freida's skin is naturally beautiful anyway, but it was completely flawless in the movie. It was a distinctive look because her skin looked perfect but didn't look like any make-up had been caked on at all. I'm really excited about checking out some of these products.
