In our usual Internet surfing we came across a picture of Indian actress and model Aishwarya Rai. She is also a brand ambassador for L'Oreal and endorses their products in the Indian market.

Last year the company released a very controversial picture of the actress in which they noticeably lightened her skin.

There was a lot a fan backlash from the picture and Perez Hilton reported that this was not the first time the star had been a victim to skin lightening.

A little over two years ago the actress graced the cover of Elle India and had her photographed lighten with out her consent, a source to the Bollywood actress said the actress was livid:

"Aishwarya's first reaction was disbelief. Not in this day and age when women are recognized for their merit, and not for the color of their skin. She is currently verifying this skin-whitening allegation. If there is any proof of this, she might even take action."

However with or without make up, Aishwarya's skin is always flawless and he makeup in the photo was done beautifully.

The actress' skin always looks fresh and radiant and surprisingly she has no signs of sun damage considering she lives in Indian which is know for its high temperatures.

We were curious to see how we could recreate the look from the picture and of course Sam from Pixiwoo was already on the case and had a makeup tutorial of the Aishwarya Rai photo already set up.

However in the makeup tutorial Sam emphasizes that Aishwarya's makeup was really airbrushed so the look is hard to perfect without putting a pound of make up on your skin.

Luckily for us Sam uses a moderate amount of make up that does not make her look too overdone.
