Zakia Bari Momo

Momo's journey started with ‘Lux Channel I Superstar 2006’ after she was crowned the winner. Later she was cast as the leading actress in 'Daruchini Dip' for which she won a National Award. After that, there has been no turning back for her. She has acted in numerous films and TV dramas, establishing herself as a prominent actress.

Momo believes beauty is a lot more than skin deep. Our skin acts more as a sponge than a barrier therefore all the products that we rub, scrub and lather on our skin eventually gets absorbed by our body. Since most of these products contain artificial chemicals, they might not be as beneficial for our health as the cosmetic companies make us believe. 

Therefore, Momo is a big fan of herbal products. Although she doesn't get a lot of time, whenever she does have some free time on her hand, she mixes up a few products that are easily available in everyone's kitchen and concocts a very natural cleanser, mask or scrub. Her favourite ingredients to play with are ginger, methi, yoghurt, egg, mehedi, and aloe vera. However, when she is short on time, she uses the Bioderma H2O Facial Cleanser. Before going to bed, once she is done cleansing her skin of all the makeup and impurities, she doesn't apply anything more on her skin as night time is the only time her skin gets any chance to breathe. Even during the day, she tries to use as minimal products as possible. To her, 'au naturel' is the most beautiful.

When it comes to everyday makeup, the only thing Momo likes to use is Kajal and Alix Avien Mascara. Since her eyes are very prominent, just highlighting them is enough. For her base, she uses the Body Shop All-In-One BB Cream. When out with friends or colleagues she likes to be as comfortable as possible. For her style statement, Momo goes with the Indo-Western fusion. She likes to pair denim with a kurti and accessorize it with a chunky bracelet or necklace. For formal events, Momo loves to wear sarees. She has a large collection of various types of sarees which include Taat, Jamdani, Katan, Georgette, etc. She usually loves to wear a single-colored saree with a contrasted par. She loves to complete the formal look with smokey eyes and a teep.
