Bollywood's fit and fabulous Kareena Kapoor is on her way to turn 35, and she's clear about not attempting to be 22! She feels the key to ageing gracefully lies in letting the "lines" be, especially when it comes to men.
Don't do bronzer
While the awards season hangover is still in effect, you don't need to trip the light fantastic up the conference room carpet. Lay off the bronzer and only channel your inner Kardashian on your annual seaside vacation.
Do a subtle flush with a cheek stain
To get a healthy, pink glow, use a natural cheek stain or cream blush on the apples of your cheeks. Blend until disappears into your skin.
Don’t go the shimmer way
In the harsh office light, shimmer powders will not light your complexion up, but will take you over to the dark side with a ghoulish pallor.
Do use a radiance-enhancing product
A brightening serum under your foundation or a cc cream should give you a work-appropriate glow.
Don't do glitter
Glitter is great when you're out on the town with your besties. But there's no room for giggly girls around the water cooler, and last night's residue will make you lose your office sparkle.
Do go for matte textures
Go all matte—for your blush, eyeshadow and lipstick at work. The chances of spillage are less, and spills if any, can be mopped up without leaving skid marks. Layer a lip balm under a matt lipstick to keep your lips hydrated.

Eyes
Dont wear fake lashes
Reserve the falsies for the dance floor. The last thing you want is to bat your lashes at the office hottie with a goop of eyelash glue in your eye or have an individual lash land in your morning chai.
Do use a lengthening mascara
To achieve the awake-at-8am effect, try lengthening mascara. Wiggle the wand at the base of your lashes and comb upwards, separating as you go, to avoid ugly clumps. This works well for girls with glasses.
Don't do a smokey
Leave the dark eyes for after-dark activities. The last thing you want is your boss thinking you hot-footed a walk of shame to your cubicle.
Do choose a light eye shadow
Light nudey colours like taupe, caramel and champagne with an iridescent finish is perfect for office. Softly blend it into your upper lid so no harsh lines remain—make sure to fan away any lingering deposits. P.S. Don't forget to conceal those dark circles, nothing makes you look more tired.
Don't do an elaborate cat-eye
Reserve your liner skills for weddings, night outs and festivities. Bleeding kohl may show off your affinity to save the pandas but it won't save your job.
Do tightlining
Tightlining, while not the easiest technique, gives you a polished look and subtly defines the eyes. Lift your eye and use a waxy crayon along the inside of your upper lash line. If your eye waters, press an ear bud into the inner corner of your eye.

Lips
Don't use a frosted lip colour
Frosty bubble-gum pink belongs on Barbie, and unless you are an impersonator, it has absolutely no place in your office arsenal.
Do make friends with nudes and neutrals
A rosy-nude lip colour is perfect to perk up your face for a 9am meeting. Look for one with a creamy, velvety-matte texture to keep your lips hydrated from 9 to 5.

Hair
Don't do a messy do
Yes, the shag is the IT cut this season, but Jane Fonda and Joan Jett should not be your work alter egos. Messy, textured hair looks…well, messy and you will lose points with your supervisor for appearance.
Do keep it sleek with a pony
A pulled-back pony isn't just for school. Go with a glossy, smoothening serum or flat iron for poker-straight strands. To take it up a notch, wrap a thick strand around your hair tie and fasten under the tail.
Don’t paint a rainbow
Katy did it, so did Kendall. But unless your job has you preening for a camera or stage diving, rainbow or ombré hair will not be met with much favour around the office.
Do go global
If you're going grey at your roots, cover up with a global hair colour. Go with shades that are similar to your natural hair colour and add highlights and low lights for depth.

Nails
Don't do nail art
You're an artist, a painter and a dreamer…on the weekends, that is. Nail art at the office, especially on claw nails, isn't going to paint a picture of serious professionalism.
Do a classic French manicure
Stick to nudes, light pastels or the classic French mani. Before you say "Boooring", these looks score high on the neat meter and you can totally be on trend, with the half-moon or negative space mani. Just stick to the same shade family.
